Cannabinoids are substances that mimic marijuana. The chemical in marijuana that makes people ?high? - tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - binds to certain receptors in the brain. The anandamide in chocolate can bind to the same receptors, producing a "high."
So instead of smoking Pot to ease pain we can eat chocolate! That
Of course one would have to eat 25lbs of chocolates to get the same effect as one hit of Mary Jane.
Start eating now folks!!!! BUT I'm one of the `strange ones' I don't like chocolate!
