One of the most important systems in our bodies is often overlooked until more recently. The Endocannabinoid system is involved in establishing and helping to maintain homeostasis within the human body. Cannabinoids and their receptors can be found in all parts of an animals’ body from the brain, tissues, glands and immunity cells. For example, a life process called autophagy; the process in which cells isolate part of their contents to be recycled, happens with the help of this system. The cannabinoid system also assists in the communications between cells and other bodily systems.
