Cannabis sativa cultivated cannabis and how this works among other things that relates to the endocannabinoids system so we have this plant I wasn’t put on God’s green earth to get us high because the plant has been around a lot longer than the human species but through a convenient accident of nature it makes chemicals that react with our own receptors all these are cannabinoid receptors cb1 the psychoactive receptor and cb2 and immunomodulatory and pain-relieving receptor the reason this works is one chemical in particular in cannabis THC resembles natural cannabinoids within us the endogenous or endocannabinoids best known erica Donal glycerol in and amide and two.

AG these bind to the receptors in the same way that THC does and the endocannabinoid system is composed of those endogenous chemicals these receptors the enzymes that make them and break them down now there’s been a great deal of confusion about what we should call cannabis beyond the hundreds of slang terms frequently you’ll hear this is indica this is sativa on my opinion this is all nonsense we could go into the Nitty Gritty of what is a species we know that all cannabis can interbreed what you really need to know is what’s in it and what will its effects be of course that depends to a certain extent on the internal milieu of the set and setting these ineffable things that we try to affect but it is.
