Animal tissue trials suggest that humans can convert Omega 3 Fatty Acids into endocannabinoid compounds that fight inflammation without causing a high. These chemicals are distant relatives of the euphoria-inducing THC in marijuana. Enzymes in your body can process omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids into compounds that bind to the cannabinoid system to boost immunity and fight inflammation. This results in the same medical effects as marijuana without the high. More research is needed, as the cannabinoid system may end up being one of the major endocrine systems in the body.
- Foods such as eggs, meat, nuts, and fish contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that the body can convert into endocannabinoids.
- The body has two cannabinoid receptors, one in the nervous system and another in the immune system.
- In 1992, scientists discovered that the body naturally produces endocannabinoids and other endocannabinoids have been identified since that time.
"Cascading chemical reactions were revealed in animals tissues studies that convert omega-3 fatty acids into cannabinoids with anti-inflammatory benefits and lacking in psychotropic highs, as published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."
