Description

The goal of this course is to present an updated and practical application of phytocannabinoids to support a healthy Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a biological system that utilizes cell-signaling to promote homeostasis. The ECS exists throughout the entire body and appears to be an essential factor in multiple biological functions in health and disease. Acting through signaling pathways, the ECS regulates many physiological functions. The ECS consists of three key components: cannabinoid receptors, endogenous ligands called endocannabinoids, and enzymes involved in cannabinoid metabolism. The ECS is a lipid signaling system that traces back to the mitochondria is “regulating energy homeostasis.”
