Endocannabinoid system

Definition:

The human endocannabinoid system regulates key aspects of our biology and helps us achieve homeostatis, serving a vital purpose for our health and well-being. Phytocannabinoids and cannabinoids such as THC and CBD act on the endocannabinoid system to produce their effects. There are also "endogenous cannabinoids", called endocannabinoids, which are the messenger molecules of this system.
