The human endocannabinoid system is an arrangement of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and Interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
The human body has two receptor for cannabinoids the CB1 and CB2 receptors . Although both are found all over the body, CB1 receptors are present in the brain and deal with pain, movement, cognitive function and mood. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system and affect pain and inflammation, among other things.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. The human body (and the bodies of all vertebrates) produce endocannabinoids, and phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids found in plants. Cannabinoids interact with the body's endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis.
The entourage effect is the synergistic response to the body being presented with two or more cannabinoids and/or terpenes leading to greater effects.
