The Endocannabinoid System

Endocannabinoid Production in the Human Body

The endocannabinoid system influences nearly every bodily function. Without endocannabinoids, many normal processes begin to go awry.

Not long after the first cannabinoid was isolated from the cannabis plant, scientists discovered the human body produces similar substances.

These endogenous cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids, are neurotransmitters that perform a wide range of functions in the human body. From regulating pain to reducing anxiety, cannabinoids and their receptors play a huge role in maintaining mental, physical, and emotional homeostasis.

Below, you will find information on some of the most important endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and the role CBD oil can play in treating endocannabinoid deficiency.
