Cannabis is among the oldest types of useful and ornamental plants in the world, and can be called a true 'all-rounder' thanks to its versatility. It is particularly valued as a renewable resource for textiles, paper, building materials and foods, but also as a unique phytopharmaceutical for the treatment of many medical conditions.
With increasing interest in the therapeutic potential of phytocannabinoids, cannabis, again, proves itself to be one of the most significant plants for humankind. Phytocannabinoids - a collection of more than 100 related chemical compounds found in cannabis - are the subject of research interest. The primary targets for these compounds, beside other receptors, are the body's endocannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. Hence, researchers have two avenues through which they can exploit the medicinal effects of cannabinoids. One strategy is to target the endocannabinoid receptors directly by designing drugs that will activate or suppress them. The other is to harness the effects of the phytocannabinoids and turn these compounds into drugs.
The body's endocannabinoid system is the pathway by which tetrahydrocannabinol exerts its psychoactive effects and is the target for many of the plant's other cannabinoids. It is intrinsic to a number of different processes, including appetite, memory, alertness, pain, inflammation and bone health. Additionally, stimulation of the endocannabinoid system is associated with the protection of healthy cells.
Endocannabinoid receptors are spread throughout the body and are believed to be more numerous than those of any other receptor system. Indeed, the fact that the endocannabinoid system is so widespread and plays a part in so many different brain functions could explain why the compounds found in cannabis seem to have endless medical uses.
