According to a GEN – genetic engineering & biotechnology article, researchers found that the consumption of coffee stimulates the complex network of neurotransmitters, also known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), much like that of cannabis. ECS consists of a biological structure composed of endocannabinoids, which are essentially the "small molecules that activate the cannabinoid receptors" (Jikomes). ECS is a system that is necessary in maintaining homeostasis on a cellular level. Furthermore, ECS is also responsible as it acts as a regulator for stress response, appetite, addiction, energy, and much more (GEN).

With the sun going down at 5 P.M. we got a bit of a vampire complex and decided to make February our month dedicated to the viscosity of blood and its derivatives. To go with our mood, we also published an application note on the viscosity of plasma and serum. However, this seemed a bit like decaf coffee to us. If you know the RheoSense crew, we love our coffee! Hence, we wanted to look at the real thing!
