Jointly Can Help You Optimize How You Use Cannabis
Have you ever noticed that the same cannabis product can produce different effects (or side effects) from one day to the next? Or that a weed strain that consistently makes you focused and creative has a totally different effect on your friend?
How is it possible that the same product has such varied effects? And what factors can you track and control so that you can enjoy a consistent and reliable cannabis experience every time?
Experts in cannabis wellness believe that there are at least 15 physiological, environmental and behavioral factors that can impact your cannabis experience. Jointly is a new cannabis wellness app that enables you to track these 15 factors so that you can optimize how you consume cannabis, reduce adverse side effects, and achieve your wellness goals with cannabis or CBD.
And it works: Jointly users who have created at least 10 reports are improving their results by an average of 38%.
To understand why all these different factors might impact your cannabis experience, it is important to understand the role that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays in the human body and how cannabis interacts with this system.
The ECS is made up of the CB1 (cannabinoid receptor 1) and CB2 receptors and the endogenous cannabinoids that bind to them. The CB1 receptors are found in the brain, nervous system, peripheral organs and tissue, while the CB2 receptors are found primarily on immune cells, although they are also found on bone, spleen and liver cells. The ECS modulates a wide range of biological functions like mood, sleep, pain perception, glucose metabolism, the hormones produced in the gut, cognitive function and more.
