Cannabinoids & ECS

All mammals have a system of receptors known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), a neural network of cell-level receptors that spans your central and peripheral nervous systems. Cannabinoid molecules act on these receptors to maintain vital functions throughout our body.

There are three types of cannabinoids:

  • Endogenous - our own body naturally produces cannabinoids; anandamide and 2-AG

  • Phyto-cannabinoids - plants-based cannabinoids. Most abundantly found in the hemp cannabis plant. Also found in cacao, black pepper, echinacea, liverwort, oxeye sunflower for example. 

  • Synthetic - lab created cannabinoid

How do cannabinoids work in the body?

Two primary cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) are capable of:

  • receiving a message and, 

  • produce a signal

When cannabinoids are produced by our body or consumed, these receptors are activated and capable of creating a physical and psychological reaction in the body.
