Did you know that we create endocannabinoids or bliss molecules in our bodies by consuming essential fats?
Essential fats are building blocks of Anandamide. This molecule was discovered in 1992 while studying cannabinoid receptors and was named after the Sanskrit word, Ananda, meaning bliss. Some neuroscientists believe that a possible role of anandamide is to prevent a person from becoming overwhelmed by too much stimulation.
What are some food sources of essential fats to increase Anandamide?
Chia seed, flax, hemp hearts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and fish oils.
What are other ways that we increase bliss molecules?
- Chocolate is found to be a source of anandamide.
For the highest concentration of this bliss molecule, go for low sugar dark chocolate or cacao nibs.
- Runner’s high
Research done at the University of Arizona concluded that endocannabinoids, including anandamide, are a likely cause of euphoria after exercise.
- Flow state
You know that feeling when you are doing something that you enjoy, you are laser focused, and it feels like time has stopped or you realize that it has flown by?
Flow state is the optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best. This is when the brain releases large amounts of feel-good chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, and anandamide.
- CBD prevents breakdown of bliss molecules
Cannabidiol (CBD) was found to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down Anandamide and increases concentration of bliss molecules in our body.
