But wait, what does cannabis do to ensure that all your pain goes away in no time?
The endocannabinoid system and pain management
The answer to whether cannabis solves your pain management problems lies within the endocannabinoid system. This is a system found in our bodies that consists of endocannabinoids, endocannabinoid receptors and enzymes.
The core function of the endocannabinoid system is to aid in signalling of homeostatic reactions to bring back the body into optimal functioning.
When pain is detected by sensory neurons, several reactions are triggered to curb the pain. Using cannabis extracts (phytocannabinoids) will boost the endocannabinoids in the body to have a more robust system that gives signals quicker.
Once the body attains stability (pain goes away) the enzymes cool the signalling down by inhibiting the actions of cannabinoids. This ensures that the hard achieved balance is not offset towards the opposite side.
If you are having any doubts on using cannabis for managing pain due to injury, diseases, conditions or even heartbreaks (Yes, it can take the pain away by calming your nerves) you should bury them in the deepest of graves.
