Anandamide Tie Pin/Brooch
Want to capture to wear something the represents bliss, joy and delight? This pin does exactly that. Not only is it a beautiful sculpture of the anandamide molecule, its also a gorgeous design in its own right.
‘Ananda’ is a word in Sanskrit which means joy, delight or bliss. Anandamide is a neurotransmitter that, along with many other functions, acts like a naturally occurring high in our bodies (like THC, the part of cannabis that creates the high).
It is beautifully detailed showing all the elements of the molecule with a light-catching polished finish. The pin is solid, has a beautiful weight and a smooth feel.
It’s been found to have a role in fertility, one study suggests it plays an important role in creating conditions for embryo implantation in the womb. It’s also linked to pain relief, the runner’s high, transporting dopamine (as part of the reward/pleasure system), memory and mood. And scientists are still learning more and more about this amazing endocannabinoid! Aren’t our bodies incredible?!
It comes with a description of the molecule, so if you are buying it as a gift it will be easily understood. You can choose whether you want this molecule to represent bliss or fertility and we’ll send the appropriate description card (or both cards if you choose!).
The solid silver spheres each represent a different element of the molecule (carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen).
