Endocannabinoid Receptors

Endocannabinoid receptors are a crucial part of the endocannabinoid system, which plays a significant role in maintaining homeostasis in the body. These receptors are found throughout the body, including the brain, immune cells, and peripheral tissues. They interact with endocannabinoids, which are naturally occurring compounds produced by the body, as well as with phytocannabinoids found in cannabis. When endocannabinoids or phytocannabinoids bind to these receptors, they can modulate various physiological processes, such as pain perception, immune response, and mood regulation. Understanding the function of endocannabinoid receptors is essential for comprehending the effects of cannabinoids and their therapeutic potential.
