Your wellbeing, the Endocannabinoid Program & Cannabis


Time to appear a tiny bit much more in-depth into the endocannabinoid technique, which consists of cell receptors and corresponding molecules in our bodies, so sit comfortably and the geek show shall commence!

Exactly where does the name Endocannabinoid come from?

The name derives from the Greek word Endo which means ‘within’ to represent the organic cannabinoid receptors inside the human physique. The key endocannabinoid molecules inside us are known as anandamide (AEA) and two-Ag. Interestingly when Anandamide was initial isolated it got its name from the Sanskrit word Ananda, which indicates bliss in Hindi. So AEA (Anandamide) in fact indicates the bliss molecule and I believe that is quite cool!

The endocannabinoid technique sits all through our bodies covering CB1 and CB2 receptors! CB1 are located predominantly in the central nervous technique and CB2 much more normally located in the immune technique. Our bodies currently build these endocannabinoids, which we can get from our diet program and are eased into our technique by way of issues like fatty acids e.g Omega-three. The endocannabinoid technique can correctly boost or decrease communication channels with the intent of attaining equilibrium by synthesising two-AG and AEA to realize a balanced biological atmosphere.

How does the physique operate with the Endocannabinoid technique?

Our clever bio-suits (aka human physique) use enzymes in the endocannabinoid technique to break down leftover endocannabinoids and when Cannabis/hemp extract is added to the mix it stops the enzymes breaking down the AEA molecule (aka our old pal the bliss molecule) and tends to make much more of it accessible for use by other cells.

We are all folks and it appears that this is also reflected in our endocannabinoid technique levels reflecting a exclusive balance of receptor density and how we absorb amounts of two-AG and AEA.

The science behind Cannabis

The science behind Cannabis and endocannabinoids shows that introducing Cannabis can have a direct influence upon these systems in our bodies, this genuinely excites and interests me. It is the endocannabinoid technique that promotes embryonic improvement which tends to make human life achievable. It promotes brain improvement in the embryo by regulating stem cells and following birth the endocannabinoid CB1 receptor initiates milk suckling! This technique was only found and the findings had been published in 1992, even so the endocannabinoid technique started evolving more than half a billion years ago.

Wow that is the science attack more than and I shall retire from the white coat for the moment. Hope you liked the fascinating snippets and appear forward to much more blogs!
