Why THC Matters

Everybody has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Yours has been functioning literally every second of every day since you were born. In your early life it guided your brain and nervous system development; now it largely acts to regulate your mood, your memory, your immune response, your appetite, your metabolism, your pain perception, and so much more.
