Medical cannabis may be beneficial in patients with certain conditions.
Cannabinoid receptors are found all over our body. Two main receptors have been identified, CB1 and CB2. CB1s are found primarily in the brain and central nervous system. CB2s are found primarily in the peripheral cells of the immune system.
Our body produces our own natural cannabinoids that attach to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. It governs many functions such as pain, immune function, inflammation, muscle control, appetite and more.
