The endocannabinoid system within our bodies regulates many aspects of health, including pain control. This system is comprised of endocannabinoids produced within the body, including anandamide (arachi-donylethanolamide) and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG), which are able to activate receptors in the endocannabinoid system. The presence of this system was an intriguing discovery, as it indicated our bodies produce substances similar to cannabis that are able to switch endocannabinoid receptors on and off.
