Anandamide: the happiness molecule for your brain

Anandamide: the happiness molecule for your brain

In the late 1980s, receptors for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the primary psychoactive component of cannabis, were discovered in the brain. But since THC does not occur naturally in the body, the existence of these receptors puzzled scientists. The mystery was solved a few years later, when arachidonylethanolamide was discovered, which was later called anandamide. Anandamide is a neurotransmitter produced by the brain that binds to THC receptors. It has been called the “happiness molecule” after the Sanskrit word Ananda, which means joy, bliss or happiness. It has been considered an endocannabinoid – a substance produced by the body that binds to cannabinoid receptors.
