When people hear about all of the different health conditions that cannabis can help with, some might wonder how one herb can have so many powerful medical properties without any serious side effects.
This question led researchers to discover a system of physiology working within all of us to constantly maintain homeostasis –or balance– at a cellular level. It was named the endogenous cannabinoid system (endocannabinoid) after the plant that led to its identification. It is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health.
