What is Medical Cannabis
How Does Cannabis Work In The Body?
The Endocannabinoid System
Cannabis interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid system, an independent, endogenous system of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body.
When you consume cannabis, cannabinoids bind to these receptors, influencing a range of physiological processes.
THC, known for its psychoactive effects, engages primarily with the CB-1 receptors in the brain, resulting in a euphoric sensation.
CBD, on the other hand, interacts with CB-2 receptors, playing a role in immune system modulation and anti-inflammatory responses.
