My interest was peaked after listening to an interview of the master herbalist Terry Willard on Reishi and the endocannabinoid system. Is it really true that there are cannabinoid receptors in the brain which react with Reishi? Considering that Reishi is my go-to functional mushroom when I want to relax, I wasn’t surprised such a claim was made. But is it true?
Our Reishi tinctures are derived from the Reishi mushroom and are known for their numerous health benefits. As you may have read or heard numerous times, Reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. In recent years, its popularity has grown due to the growing body of research that highlights its potential benefits.
The Reishi mushroom contains compounds such as triterpenes and ganoderic acids, which have been shown to have a positive effect on our well-being. The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in regulating various functions in the body, including pain sensation, mood, appetite, and sleep. By impacting the endocannabinoid system, Reishi tinctures may be able to offer a range of health benefits. Let’s see.
PubMed is a database of medical literature maintained by the National Library of Medicine, and it includes many studies on the effects of Reishi on various aspects of health. However, a search for “Reishi endocannabinoid system” on PubMed yields just one study.
Terry Willard was clearly over-enthusiastic.

Investigating Reishi and the endocannabinoid system
I was only able to find one study that showed the potential of Reishi in impacting the endocannabinoid system. Here is the link to the research conducted on this remarkable ingredient:
Identification of novel phytocannabinoids from Ganoderma by label-free dynamic mass redistribution assay.
This work confirms the presence of active ingredients in the Ganoderma species to CB1 and CB2, and this finding establishes connections between the fungi and the cannabinoid receptors, which will serve as a starting point to connect their beneficial effects to the endocannabinoid system.
With its unique composition of compounds including polysaccharides, triterpenes, and ganoderic acids, Reishi has the potential to positively impact the endocannabinoid system and promote overall well-being, but sofar evidence-based research is a little short of research supply.
The Endocannabinoid System: What You Need to Know
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of receptors and compounds that play a critical role in regulating a variety of physiological processes, including pain, mood, appetite, and immune function. The ECS is activated by endocannabinoids, which are compounds produced by the body, as well as by compounds found in the marijuana plant, such as THC.
How Reishi Can Impact the Endocannabinoid System
More research is needed to fully understand the impact of Reishi on the endocannabinoid system and its potential in managing specific health conditions. However, these exciting findings suggest that Reishi may have a variety of health benefits and could be a simple and delicious way to support your well-being.
In addition to the study above, there is a growing body of research that suggests that Reishi tinctures may be able to offer a range of other health benefits, such as improving immune function, reducing inflammation, and improving cardiovascular health.
