Introduction to the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system modulates human’s perception of pain, memory and learning, inflammation, immune response, digestion, appetite, mood and more Cannabinoids interact seamlessly with the endocannabinoid system, often replicating natural cannabinoids, to activate or inhibit the many endocannabinoid receptors

Each cannabinoid interacts in a unique way, and often work together in interesting ways for added benefit.

Example: THC locks into the CB1 receptor to trigger the high. CBD works less directly to inhibit this receptor, to reduce the length and strength of the high. The compounds in marijuana work in the endocannabinoid system to return the body to homeostasis.
