What is it?
The endocannabinoid system is made of several interlocking mechanisms, including: cannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes responsible for the fate of the cannabinoids. Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids interact with the receptor sites to help the body achieve balance.
The endocannabinoid system is involved in several processes, including sleep, mood, pain, appetite, memory, metabolism, stress, immune function, and reproductive function. Endocannabinoids are the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules in the body.
