Endocannabinoid system

Also known as: ECS

What does “Endocannabinoid system” mean?

In simple terms, the endocannabinoid system or ECS is the aspect of the human nervous system responsible for getting humans high. When weed is consumed, these transmitters bind to the THC receptors introduced into your system, resulting in that familiar pleasant feeling of being high. Health-conscious consumers may be interested in diet tips or other research that can enhance the effects of this system.

Example usage:

“I'm thinking about trying a diet of foods that enhance the endocannabinoid system, to see if it makes any difference when getting high.”
