There are two types of receptors that cannabinoids can bind to and create an effect on; CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system, and help regulate mood, anxiety, and alertness. CB2 receptors are primarily found in the peripheral nervous system, and influence the immune system, pain, and inflammation. Because of their widespread and numerous effects, these receptors play an important role in maintaining health.
