Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System
How does cannabis work in the brain? In this video, we will discuss how cannabis products interact with the brains’ endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system influences many brain functions including mood, memory, and stress. This system uses endogenous molecules called endocannabinoids to send messages to different parts of the brain. This system can be influenced by the presence of cannabinoids, which are found in the cannabis plant. Watch this video to learn more about how endocannabinoids and cannabinoids target different brain regions to alter behaviour and brain function.
