“The endocannabinoid system of our human
from Mary Biles
Did you know that your body contains an endocannabinoides system?
I did not know that a year ago either. I’m a doctor, I thought I was familiar with the key systems of our body’s biological systems. It turned out that I was wrong.
It is therefore almost impossible that in conventional medicine
something is taught you about the endocannabinoid system, unless you
research yourself in the field of medical cannabis.
Why do so few people know about the enocannabinoid system?
What’s the secret? Well, it has to do with how the endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered. In 1990, scientists explored the THC, the psychoactive substance of the cannabis plant, on the physical effects.
What they discovered was a complex network of receptors (CB1) in the
brain and central nervous system that were perfectly aligned with the
THC molecule. Shortly thereafter, a second type of receptor (CB2) was discovered in the immune system, intestine, and major organs. But this was only part of the puzzle.
The search went on to see if the body produced its own cannabidiol-like molecule. With the identification of the first endocannabiniodic anandamide they had their answer.
What does the endocannabinoid system do?
the scientists have noticed is that most of our physiological functions
are fine-tuning sleep, apettit, pain, memory, feelings, and
reproduction, and bring them into balance. Basically,
it acts like a conductor of an orchestra, where no area is underserved
to another with the end result of a harmonic symphony between the body
and the mind.
That sounds like a very important function or? That’s the way it is! “
