Learn how the human body responds to cannabis
Our bodies have a unique communication system throughout our brains and bodies, called the endocannabinoid system (from the root “endo” meaning internal or within). This system affects many important functions, including how a person feels, moves and reacts.
Two important components of this system are endocannabinoids and endocannabinoid receptors. Amazingly, our bodies naturally create endocannabinoids that are bioidentical to the phytochemicals found in the cannabis plant! An example of an endocannabinoid that our body naturally creates, is the neurotransmitter anandamide. Anandamide is considered the “bliss compound” and is responsible for stimulating feelings of joy and happiness.
