Not only are the body’s natural cannabinoids as safe as milk—they are literally in mother’s breast milk.

The body’s own endocannabinoids naturally occur throughout the body. They’re in the brain, the nervous system, the immune system, the gastrointestinal system, reproductive organs, blood vessels, and connective tissues…pretty much everywhere.

They’re also crucial to neonatal development. Cannabinoid receptors are abundant in the placenta, where they facilitate “cross-talk” between the embryo and the mother. They then act as guides for fetal “neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation.” This means is that cannabinoids help the fetal brain send resources to the correct developmental pathways.
