The Endocannabinoid System or ECS for short, is the backbone of keeping you regulated within yourself. Our CB1 and CB2 receptors play a major part in delivering your cannabinoids to the right locations.

Just like our ECS, our CB1 & CB2 receptors occur naturally in mammals. They are the important communicators to connect our brains and bodies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CB1 Receptors are predominantly in the nervous cells of our brain and spinal cord. The CB1 receptors are known big helpers also in our reproductive, gastrointestinal and urinary tract. The CB1 receptor brings in the joy and “feel good” feeling by stimulating your body’s natural producer of anandamide. CB1 receptors are abundant in the cerebellum, hippocampus and spinal cord regions which gives a pretty big boost in how we feel.

CB1 is known mostly for the feeling and sensations of pain and pleasure, the psychoactive effect. It also plays a role in creating inflammation.

CB2 receptors aid in our immune system more so. They are found in our white blood cells, tonsil and spleen. They hon in on reducing inflammation and possible anticancer effects.
There is much more to be learned and researched about our CB1 & CB2 receptors. Next we will dive into the Entourage Effect.
The vast universe of Cannabis awaits!
