About Endocannabinoid receptors
Our bodies naturally produce cell-signalling molecules on demand referred to as endocannabinoids; their function is to keep our body’s internal balance in check and running smoothly. Endocannabinoids are able to bind to CBD1 And CBD2 receptors.
These molecules are similar to the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

What do Endocannabinoid receptors control in our body?
Our Endocannabinoid system controls the following functions in our body.
appetite and digestion
bone remodelling and growth
cardiovascular system function
inflammation and other immune system responses
learning and memory
reproductive system function
Skin and nerve function
Endocannabinoids bind the receptors so that they can take action!
What kinds of Endocannabinoids are found throughout the body?
There are 3 main Endocannabinoids found throughout the body (CBD1 CBD2 and enzymes)
CB1 receptors are more abundant in the brain (central nervous system); they coordinate emotion, movement, pain, appetite, thoughts, appetite, and memories
CBD2 receptors are found in your peripheral nervous system, especially in the immune cells, inflammation, and pain.
Enzymes break down the endocannabinoids once their function is carried out. They help speed up metabolism and chemical reactions in our bodies.
What is "The Enterouge effect"
The entourage effect can only happen when using full spectrum extract.
When cannabis is ingested, the cannabidiol compounds interact with our dopamine, opioid, and serotonin receptors, optimizing its ability to run smoothly just like a key opens a door
They’re similar to cannabinoids, but they’re produced by your body's endocannabinoids.
