The Endocannabinoid System
Do you want to understand how & why Cannabis works to bring the multitude of benefits to the body? Cannabis works because we make our own, endogenous cannabinoids. These chemicals within us and the receptors they bind allow the magic of cannabis to work. The chemicals, the receptors and the enzymes we make are all part of the Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS’s task is to modulate the Nervous, Immune, Endocrine, Digestive, Reproductive and Microcirculatory systems as well as inflammation and pain. We will spend our time unpacking and understanding the physiology of this little-known system as well exploring Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome. It bodes well for us to understand deficiency since it underlies most major chronic disease. Finally, we will discuss the ways we can assist restoring balance to the system with lifestyle, nutrition and herbs.
