COVID19 Got Ya Stressed?
Learn how your endocannabinoid system deals with stress and what that means for you and your patients.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS), the largest system of endogenous ligands and membrane receptors in the central nervous system of all animals, including us two-legged types, is the primary mechanism our nervous system has for managing stress, our adrenal-hypophyseal axis notwithstanding.
Attend this fascinating and fast-moving lunchtime educational experience and learn the mechanisms of action the ECS employs to manage stress in its efforts to maintain homeostasis in the body.
Just by accident, the plant molecules in cannabis, from THC and CBD to the terpenes and flavonoids, interact in multiple pathways with our endogenous system to amplify and support this process.
This lunchtime learning experience will end with a small section on the laboratory analysis of cannabis products and how to read a certificate of analysis so as to improve our selection process for products that are transparent, safe and which meet existing regulatory standards.
