Cannabinoid exposure

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by Hohane, Jun 22, 2013.

  1. I've been watch different documentaries and varies videos but by no means consider myself an expert. My question is this. If our body is programmed to receive cannabinoids do we produce it and or some variant of it? And if we do, would prolonged use of an external source cause our body to stop using it?

    Our endocannabinoid system controls every system in our body, digestive system, imune system, you name it. Our body does produce compounds that interact with the cannabinoid receptors (CB1 & CB2 if i'm not mistaken) which are everywhere in our body apart from in the brain stem (meaning you can't OD as you wont stop breathing). Compounds like leptin control hunger and yes prolonged abuse could lead your body into producing less of these compounds which may cause things such as loss of appetite but after stopping usage it would return to regular levels within a few days.
    I'm very high, may have named a few things wrong :)
