What is the Endocannabinoid System?



According to Wikipeda, The endocannabinoid system is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral.


CB1 receptors which are primarily found in the brain, central nerve system, lungs, liver, and kidneys.


CB2 receptors mainly proteins are found in the immune system. Our Endocannabinoid receptors are very intelligent.


They have the ability to act solely on bodily functions that is considered off or out of balance in order to achieve an homeostasis. Homeostasis meaning same, steady, or balanced. 


Overall, the endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a vast range of bodily processes, as shown in the picture above. 

These processes affect our everyday walk of life, such as our mood, energy level, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, stress, hunger, metabolism and much more.....
