A good video introduction to the endocannabinoid system

I highly recommend this short video Visualization of the endocannabinoid signaling system

Leanne does a great job at explaining how the endocannabinoid system operates as a retrograde signaling system. This is why cannabinoids act quite differently from other psychoactive substances. It may be why cannabinoids do not create physical dependance (as opiates or alcohol).
