Cannabinoid receptor sites
(Endo)cannabinoid neurons (CB) in the brain
The endocannabinoid system regulates specific physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory.
Endocannabinoids receptors are highly present in the cerebellar cortex, the basal ganglia, and in the hippocampus including the amygdala and gyrus cinguli.
Furthermore, some CB-receptors are localised in the cerebral cortex and brain stem.
