Understanding the ECS System

A better understanding of the ECS is necessary to truly appreciate its amazing functions and capabilities within the human body. This neurological system was developed over 600 million years ago and is now found within many different animal species on Earth. And even though it is ancient, we are just beginning to unravel the true potential of this system. The ECS is one of the most important systems in humans and serves as a master regulatory system that is driven by the resources it is given by means of diet and nutrition. Also addressed is the possibility that we are impeding the function of the ECS with evidence indicating the potential for this.


Nutritional Targeting of the Endocannabinoid System 

In this section of the course, we will look at how cannabis is able to modulate the ECS across the entirety of the system. While not the only way in which the ECS can be activated, the cannabinoids found within cannabis are able to interact with the system in various ways to produce different effects and results. Different foods also play a role here and we will look at some examples of how they modulate the ECS specifically. We will also dive into the efficacy of both cannabis and food as a potential treatment for certain medical conditions. Examples of how a traditional physician currently looks at medical conditions versus how a cannabinologer views the same.
