Your Endocannabinoid System helps restore balance in your body by supporting its otherfunctions
That balance is scientifically referred toas “homeostasis”
To getyour head around homeostasis, imagine your body as the surface of a lake
One of those systems is
The Endocannabinoid System
Your Endocannabinoid System is madefrom...
When homeostasis is disturbed, the enzyme creates the endocannabinoid
Once an endocannabinoid has done its job, it gets broken down again by enzymes
There are two main types of receptor inyour Endocannabinoid System
There are also different types ofendocannabinoid
They’re called “
endocannabinoids” because they’re“endogenous” to your body
(which just means you produce themnaturally)
Nowfor the weird part...
Your Endocannabinoid System is also compatible withcomponents of the cannabis plant
These components are known as “
And two of them are pretty highprofile:
However, as it’spsychoactive, THC can bring with it some side effects such as anxiety, especially in highdoses
Instead, it is believed toalter how other cannabinoids (phyto or endo) interact with the receptor
That means you may experiencethe desirable effects of anandamide for longer
A system that we’relearning more about each day.
