The Endocannabinoid System
This is a complex system with a ride range of effects on your physiology. Endocannabinoids (like the ones found in marijuana) target your CB receptors, found throughout the body.

According to the Endocannabinoid Network:

Endocannabinoids are "A complex physiological system that affects multiple metabolic pathways. It is comprised of CB receptors, their endogenous ligands (the endocannabinoids), and the proteins involved in endocannabinoid synthesis and inactivation, as well as the intracellular signaling pathways affected by endocannabinoids. Physiologically, the ECS plays a role in modulating energy balance, feeding behavior, hepatic lipogenesis, and glucose homeostasis. The ECS also participates in numerous other physiologic processes including those related to immune response, neuroprotection, memory and learning, nociception (pain sense), fertility, and bone turnover."
