About NZ Hempress Talks

nz hempress talks

Our talks educate kiwi's on the importance of the endocannabinoid system's role in the body and how it supports and balances all the other systems of the body, from the respiratory, circulatory to the lymphatic system. The ECS is the master key that maintains order and balance. Without it, the body can fall out of balance, leading to chaos, disorder and inflammation. A healthy functioning ECS can support a healthy body and mind.
