Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in your body that helps regulate certain bodily functions such as appetite, cognitive processes, mood and memory, pain management, sleep, and reproduction. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. While the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, they are seeking homeostasis, essentially a balance in the internal system, regardless of external influences.

Human bodies have cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes. Two types of cannabinoid receptors are known: CB1 found in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs; and CB2 found in the immune system.
Human bodies make endocannabinoids to stimulate these receptors, but also react to phytocannabinoids, plant-based substances. THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the most psychoactive and well-known, but other cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) also stimulate our cannabinoid receptors. .
