  • Several components of the endocannabinoid system have been fully characterized. Among them are two types of cannabinoid receptors (termed CB1 and CB2), endogenous ligands for those receptors (referred to as "endocannabinoids"), and specific enzymes responsible for their degradation and inactivation. The study of the distribution and abundance of these elements in the central nervous system has provided the basis for the well-known effects of exogenous (both natural and synthetic) and endogenous… CONTINUE READING
