What effects does cannabis have on you? While the answer to that question is different for everyone, understanding how cannabis interacts with the human body to produce these effects all starts with science.

In this course, we’ll cover the basics of cannabis biology, explore the active compounds found in the plant and explain how they interact with our bodies to produce a wide variety of effects. We’ll also delve into the human endocannabinoid system, a complex network of neurotransmitters and receptors in our bodies that regulates how we respond to the active ingredients in cannabis. Get ready for an exciting journey into the fascinating world of cannabis science.
