How does cannabis work in my body?

The active ingredients in Cannabis – cannabinoids and terpenes – are delivered to the blood through the lungs (when inhaled), the digestive system (when consumed) or the skin (when applied topically). From the blood, they are available to the brain, central nervous system and immune system. Humans are built to inter-act with cannabinoids, with endocannabinoid systems of special receptor molecules embedded in our brains and along neural pathways. The receptors influence the flow of chemical signals to the brain. Cannabinoids bind with the endocannabinoid receptors, creating medicinal effects by suppressing signals such as pain, nausea and depression while boosting signals of appetite and euphoria.
