Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters.  They send nerve impulses to trigger effects on the body.  When cannabis is introduced to the body, the cannabinoids mimic the endocannabinoids so the brain recognizes them and allows them to tweak normal brain communication.

Our endocannabinoid system consists of numerous endocannabinoids;  these are neurotransmitters that bind to receptors throughout our system.  Our endocannabinoid system helps regulate a variety of cognitive and physiological processes in the body, such as memory, pain, stress response and appetite.

The two most common cannabinoids are CBD and THC which are compounds found in the cannabis plants that actually bind to cannabinoid receptors. 

Cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors are among the most common protein receptors found in the brain. 

CB1 receptors regulate pain, appetite, mood, coordination and other functions.

CB2 receptors are prevalent in the body and immune system and primarily affect pain and inflammation.

When you consume cannabis, the plants cannabinoids bind to the receptors in a manner similar to a key fitting into a lock.

Cannabinoids also have the ability to bind a variety of neurotransmitter receptors in the brain and nervous system.  This allows for potentially new treatment methods that could be able to complement current therapies or provide treatment options when current options are not proving effective. 

Medical cannabis oils contain cannabinoid’s which effects on the brain appear to be many and profound.
