How Does Cannabis Work in the Body?
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
Cannabis works with the body’s Endocannabinoid System. An independent, endogenous system of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, whose goal is to regulate homeostasis; optimum balance.
Endocannabinoids bind with their receptors, CB-1 and CB-2, which are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.
CB-1 receptors are abundant in the brain and outnumber most other receptor types of the brain and regulate the levels and activities of neurotransmitter.
CB-2 receptors are mainly expressed in the immune tissues and are principally involved in anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive actions.
