anandamide - 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.)
These elegant earrings are made from solid sterling silver, but they feel light. The charms are about 3/4 inch (2 cm) long and 7/16 inch (1 cm) wide. They come with a info card about anandamide in a recycled gift box tied with a satin ribbon - perfect for gift giving! treat yourself or someone else to some bliss!
I also offer an anandamide necklace and ring.
