The Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a system in your body that controls homeostasis (how your body stays balanced and healthy). It is comprised of receptors that are located in your central and peripheral nervous system.
These receptors interact with chemicals your body naturally produces called endocannabinoids.
These endocannabinoids bind to the receptors to promote balance and healing.
The cannabis plant produces phyto-cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN, and many more), which are chemically very similar to the endocannabinoids your own body produces.
Our products contain phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant. When you rub our products on the area of pain or injury, the phytocannabinoids will bind to the receptors in your peripheral nervous system, there are many of these receptors in the layers of your skin, and send the message through your nervous system to stimulate the healing process.
This is why our products work so well for so many different ailments.
The Whole Plant Approach
Mary Jane’s Medicinals was founded on the belief that the wisdom is in the plant!
Instead of using a concentrate (an extraction of one or more cannabinoids taken from the plant), we use an infusion in which we grind up the whole plant and infuse that directly into our base oil (grape seed oil).
There are a multitude of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other phytochemicals in the plant that can get lost in the extraction process. These chemicals all work together in a symbiotic way- also known as the entourage effect.
It has been shown that when all these chemicals and compounds that are naturally occurring in the plant can work together, they are more effective than when isolated on their own.
Produced with care and passion, Mary Jane’s Medicinals will help your body heal itself.
