The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological multiplex cell signaling system which are lipid based neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. In the1990s researchers discovered endocannabinoids, molecules that are naturally produced by the human body. These cannabis-like molecules bind with THC, the plant derived cannabinoid receptors.
Cannabinoids interact with the ECS by binding to the CB1 and CB2 receptors which are found in the central nervous system and the peripheral system. These interactions create a high in a person.
CB1 receptors are a necessary key component for a healthy functioning brain. They are one of the receptors found in the central nervous system and in the peripheral nervous system. Most cannabinoids can bind to CB1 and CB 2 receptors, an example is phytocannabinoids THC. In the case of cannabidiol CBD, it doesn’t bind directly with either receptor CB1 or CB2, instead it stimulates both types of CB1 and CB2 receptors.
