Due to the popularity of cannabis and the active ingredients that help against pain complaints and diseases, lots of research has been done in recent years. This way an important discovery has been made and that is that the brain has a similar cannabis system, namely the endocannabinoid system. These results show that the body produces substances similar to cannabis. This is so similar that the body cannot tell the difference between its own system and that of cannabis.
How endocannabinoid works Research done in Israel 1 and Spain 2 has focused on the action of the endocannabinoids and the receptors of cannabis in the brain, named CB1 and in the immune system and arms and legs, named CB2 3 . The endocannabinoid system consists of cannabis receptors, endocannabinoids and enzymes.
Research has shown that the endocannbinoid system in the brain regulates or is involved in certain processes such as pain, hunger, blood pressure and movement. Brain functions could also control the endocannabinoid system, such as memory, attention and impulsive behavior. This is because endocannabinoids act as neuromodulators and release other neurotransmitters such as slowing down or stimulating gamma amino
How cannabinoids work?
|The organic compound in a number of plants, including hemp plants and cannabis, are called cannabinoids. They have a supporting role in the plant, among other things they prevent insects from reaching the plants. In the human body they have positive effects or diseases or other ailments.|
That’s because of the receptors explained earlier. These receptors are found all over the human body. Not just in the brain, but also in the skin, immune system, digestive tract and nervous system. Their goal is to observe the systems in our body and ensure that they
function properly. When certain systems do not work properly or are under stress (for example, your immune system with a virus), these receptors make subtle changes and thus restore the balance in the body. Because our body constantly strives for a balanced and
healthy state, this process is continuous.
The Influence of cannabinoids on the body.
The influence of cannabinoids on the body
There are so many ways cannabinoids affect the body. That’s because the receptors are located all over the body.
Various functions are thus regulated and controlled, such as our motor skills, digestion and immune functions. An enormous number of processes take place. In addition, there are also collaborations between cannabinoids and receptors. In these and many other ways, the body’s endocannabinoid system works with the
cannabinoids from, for example, CBD oil.
Yet there are many more options that are
constantly being explored. But so far we can say that endocannabinoid system is indispensable for our health and that this is positively influenced by exogenous cannabinoids.
