STUDIES INVESTIGATING THE BENEFITS OF CB2 RECEPTOR ACTIVATION

CB2 is one of the two main receptors of the ECS. There are numerous benefits to activating this receptor without activating the CB1 receptor (the receptor THC activates, and what is responsible for the "high" associated with cannabis). The following is a small list of studies illustrating the benefits of CB2 activation.
