A new study on worms has provided new insight into how the endocannabinoid system works and helps explain the effects of cannabis consumption. Researchers found that cannabis consumption activates the endocannabinoid system in worms, leading to increased feeding and dopamine release. This is similar to what happens in mammals and could have implications for developing medical treatments for appetite disorders and depression. The study sheds light on the complex workings of the endocannabinoid system and may pave the way for future research into the effects of cannabis on the body.
