CB1 Cannabinoid 1 Receptors

CB1 Cannabinoid 1 Receptors are most densely situated in the central nervous system and are responsible for the cannabinoid effects in the brain. It is a vital protein in the body’s endogenous cannabinoid system(ECS).THC is the ingredient that activates CB1. A person feels the cannabinoids intoxicating effects when the THC connects with the CB1 Receptor.

Cannabinoid receptors are a significant component of the body’s endocannabinoid system(ECS). Every function in our body requires proper balance to carry out and the ECS stabilized the body through homeostasis with its three essential components:

  • Messenger molecules termed cannabinoids.
  • Receptors joining to these molecules.
  • Enzymes breaking them down for the body to synthesize.

The most researched and studied body’s cannabinoid are the Cannabinoid 2 and Cannabinoid 1 receptors.CB1 can be found throughout the nervous system where they are responsible for a wide array of brain functions. All cannabis are not created equal. Various strains of cannabis produce varying effects and can be used for different purposes. MarijuanaDoctors.com can help you make the right decisions for you.

CB1 is essentially activated by a group of chemical composites known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are divided into how they transpire. Endocannabinoids are produced naturally inside your nervous system and helps you maintain balance. Phytocannabinoids are mainly produced inside plants when we consume cannabis, the cannabinoid which is derived from the plant acts with the cannabinoids in our systems and causes the reaction. The CB1 is responsible to regulate dopamine transition and when triggered due to THC it produces a feeling of euphoria inside our system.
