Have you ever had a bite of chocolate and felt instantly blissful and relaxed as though everything is right in the world? Well scientists believe that feeling may be due to anandamide – a molecule found naturally in our bodies, but also in chocolate and CBD. Anandamide is described from the Sanskrit word “ananda”, which translates to “bliss, joy and delight” because of the actions it is believed to have on our mood.
How does anandamide work? Anandamide is a neurotransmitter, a molecule that helps in the signalling through our brain and nervous system, and also an endocannabinoid, which is a compound produced in the body that binds to cannabinoid (CB1 and CB2) receptors in the brain and throughout the body that form our endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in the maintenance of many physiological and psychological processes throughout our central and peripheral nervous system, the former being responsible for mood and the latter our immune system and homeostasis.
