Learn How Cannabis Works

A 1988 government-funded study uncovered receptors in the human brain that respond to compounds found in cannabis. They are the most abundant type of neurotransmitter receptor in the brain. In 1992 scientists came upon a molecular signaling system within the body. Named the endocannabinoid system (ECS), the combination of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids regulate a broad range of biological functions for the purpose of creating homeostasis. The body reacts to imbalances within the internal environment by producing endocannabinoids that interact with the cannabinoid receptors.

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency can be caused by the body not creating enough endocannabinoids or insufficient cannabinoid receptors. There can be an over-abundance of enzymes that break down cannabinoids. There can also be issues caused by outside forces, including medications and foods that lessen ECS signaling. Chemical compounds found in cannabis can be used to treat this deficiency, stimulating the endocannabinoid system and providing relief from numerous illnesses and conditions.
