How does cannabis work?

How does cannabis work?

Cannabinoids like THC and CBD interact with a natural system of receptors throughout the body called the "endocannabinoid system" to provide the effects that patients look for in managing their symptoms.

The endocannabinoid system is responsible for many normal functions including:

  • Appetite
  • Weight
  • Sleep
  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Mood
  • Stress
