Oxytocin is a hormone that acts on organs in the body (including the breast and uterus) and as a chemical messenger in the brain, controlling key aspects of the reproductive system, including childbirth and lactation, and aspects of human behaviour. 

Oxytocin has various names, from ‘the attachment chemical’ to ‘the love drug’. It is a chemical in your brain that is associated with the feeling of pleasure while bonding. It is produced in large quantities by the mother when she is spending time keeping her infant happy and engaged.

More recent studies have shed new light on the parts of the brain involved, when we feel these ‘close connection’ feelings.

The regulator for Oxytocin, is a chemical called ANANDAMIDE, also known as the ‘bliss molecule’.

This molecule likes to bind to receptors in the ENDOCANNABINOID family. You may notice that the end of that long word contained the word ‘cannabinoid‘.
