The Endocannabinoid System

Endocannabinoid System description

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and their receptors in the body. It is responsible for regulating various physiological and cognitive processes, including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. It is also involved in regulating the effects of cannabinoids, such as those found in cannabis and hemp products, on the body. The ECS is an important system to understand when it comes to cannabis education as it can give insight into how cannabis products interact with the body.
