The Endocannabinoid system is an amazing part of the human body that works hand in hand with cannabis. Marijuana contains natural cannabinoids that makeup the compounds of marijuana. These cannabinoids are things such as THC, THCa, CBD, CBG, CBN, and others. When somebody consumes marijuana they are taking in cannabinoids. These cannabinoids work with the body's natural Endocannabinoid system.
Inside the human body, there are receptors that are called are CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. These receptors become saturated with cannabinoids when someone consumes marijuana. The cannabinoids are distributed throughout the body and create a process of communication between cells and nerves. This communication is responsible for reducing inflammation and many other conditions and issues. When the body does not have cannabinoids, nerves and cells do not have this two-way communication.
This leads to inflammation and a variety of other conditions. Since marijuana was made illegal in 1937 with the signing of the MJ Tax Act it has seemed that the world has experienced an explosion in viruses and sickness. From cancer to AIDS and many other things in between Americans have become sicker than they ever were before as well as people around the world. This is mainly due to the prescription drugs we take and the harmful genetically modified foods we eat. The endocannabinoid system is something many people are just starting to learn about as it was just discovered in the early 1990s.
As legalization of cannabis progresses around the world we will begin to see more and more research performed on the Endocannabinoid system which appears inside every mammal and human body known to existence. The human body actually produces a minute amount of cannabinoids naturally as well which appears to be the underlying cause of things such as "Runners High" which is a euphoric state of mind that runners often feel after jogging long distances or for long periods of time.
The Endocannabinoid system is a naturally occurring part of the human anatomy and is designed to work hand in hand with cannabinoids found in cannabis, both hemp, and marijuana to allow your body to function at an optimal level. It is time that it was legalized around the globe so that we can heal our sick and save lives.
