The Endocannabinoid System/ A biological internal Connection
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is an internal neurotransmitter signalling system, it’s primary role is to maintain the steady state of balance in the body through a process known as homeostasis. The ECS is made up of tiny receptors that have an important role in regulating body functions such as mood, memory, pain sensations and sleep just to name a few!
The ECS consists of two main receptors known as CB1 & CB2. CB1 Receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and CB2 receptors are primarily located in the immune system, the digestive tract & peripheral nervous system.
When endocannabinoids bind to the receptors, the effect produced depends on the location and type of the receptor. The cannabinoids interact with the receptors, much the same as a lock and key. If you think about the receptor being the lock and the cannabinoid molecule as being the key – when the cannabinoid key attaches itself onto the receptor, a reaction is then triggered; giving your cell specific direction which stimulates all kinds of positive changes throughout the mind and body.
