The Good Level
The endocannabinoid system is our body’s system of endocannabinoid receptors and the naturally produced endocannabinoids that interact with them. The ever-increasing focus of modern medical research, following promising early evidence, suggests that the endocannabinoid system could be extremely important in preventing, managing, or even treating certain chronic conditions.
When endocannabinoids bind to the cannabinoid receptors (the two we know of now are called CB1 and CB2), they are able to produce physiological responses necessary for keeping cells alive and healthy. They are everywhere, from the brain, spinal cord, immune system, internal organs, peripheral nervous system, and even on the skin. In fact, the endocannabinoid system is the most widespread receptor system in the human body.
