Endocannabinoids, also referred to as endogenous cannabinoids, are molecules produced by the body that bear resemblance to phytocannabinoids found in hemp plants. These endocannabinoids have been discovered to play a crucial role in various internal processes, including the maintenance of homeostasis. Numerous endocannabinoids are known to be active in functions such as anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-metastatic roles.

Scientific studies have provided evidence supporting the involvement of endocannabinoids in neurotransmitters, immune system, and mitochondrial functions. Among the many endocannabinoids, two primary ones are recognized: anandamide and 2-AG (2-Archidonyl glycerol). These endocannabinoids are of significant importance in the body’s overall functioning.
