How Does Watermelon Zkittlez Interact with the Endocannabinoid System?

Research has shown that cannabis can be used to reduce a variety of health and wellness issues. This includes anxiety, chronic pain, and stress. This is due to its interaction with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (also known as the ECS) is a cell-signaling system found in your body. This complex system contains the components of endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes. Research has short photoperiod plantted that the ECS plays a role in regulating a whole range of functions. This includes sleep, mood, and appetite (Zou et al., 2018).

Tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) is one of the main cannabinoids found in cannabis. This is is the compound that gets you ‘high.’ Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second cannabinoid found in the plant. CBD does not get you high. However, research shows they lengthen the lifespan of endocannabinoids within the body. If you’re looking to use cannabis for a medical condition, you should always consult a healthcare professional first.
