How Does Medical Marijuana Work?
Medical marijuana contains active chemical compounds called phytocannabinoids that interact with a distinct physiological system known as the Endocannabinoid System. This system is comprised of endogenous cannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors and regulatory enzymes. The endogenous cannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: primarily in the nervous system and the immune system, but also in the gastrointestinal, endocrine, hematopoetic systems and more. Human and animal studies demonstrate the role of the endocannabinoid system in a wide variety of physiologic processes and this ubiquity of the endocannabinoid system suggests the possibility of multiple therapeutic roles for medical cannabis.
