Role of endocannabinoid system in pain, anxiety, and depression

Producing a sensation of pain is a complex operation:

  • From the pain signals produced at the site of an injury,
  • to the peripheral nerves that transmit those signals,
  • to the dorsal root ganglia that filters them,
  • to the spinal cord and then up
  • to the brain.

The production of the pain involves many factors – each of which could conceivably be targeted to reduce pain.
