anandamide - bliss

This ring is a shiny, molecular reminder to "follow your bliss."

Anandamide plays many roles in our brains, including movement, appetite, pain, and memory. It is released in times of stress, and can make you feel that the world is gliding by and alter your sense of time. Some research suggests that it may be the source of the phenomenon known as Runner's High.

Scientists discovered anandamide while looking for the natural molecule that fits the receptor used by THC, the main active chemical in marijuana smoke. The name comes from ananda, the Sanskrit word for "bliss."

Not only does anandamide bliss-out our brains, it also helps us forget things. While, at first glance, that property may not seem very desirable, forgetting is actually an essential part of remembering. It is by sorting out what we need or don't need to remember that we learn and become wiser. (Anandamide reminds us: in some cases ignorance is bliss.)

For quite a while, I wanted to make an anadamide pendant. It was through playing with the design of a pendant, that I realized its long carbon tail would feel amazing curled around my finger, like the snake ring I had in Jr High. The notion delights me, and I love this little molecule on my hand.

The ring is made of solid sterling silver. It is modeled to a size 5.5 and can be gently bent to fit larger or smaller sizes. It comes in a little, recycled paper gift box with a tag about anandamide.
