What is the endocannabinoid system?

The ECS consists of cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body as well as the central and peripheral nervous systems. Cannabinoids such as CBD interact with these receptors in similar manners as the endogenous cannabinoids our body naturally produces. These endogenous cannabinoids are neurotransmitters that send messages throughout the body. Anandamide is an endocannabinoid that plays an important role in pain, appetite and neurogenesis.
