How does Medical Cannabis work?
Cannabinoids are the therapeutic components of cannabis. The two most commonly studied molecules are THC and CBD. Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system that produces our own endogenous cannabinoids similar to those found in cannabis. There are cannabinoid receptors throughout the human body, primarily in the central nervous system and the immune system, but also in the gastrointestinal, endocrine, and hematopoietic systems as well. Cannabinoids bind to these receptor sites with the ultimate goal of homeostasis, or balance of the human body and its systems. Studies suggest the possibility of multiple therapeutic roles for medical cannabis.
