The Power is Within Us: Patient’s Perspective on the Endocannabinoid System and CBD
How exactly do cannabinoids exert their effect on the human body? The endocannabinoid system was first discovered by Dr. Mechoulam and his cohort in 1992. The revelation should have led to a revolution in modern science; but it didn’t. Since then, significant efforts have gone into further elucidating this complex system. From its earliest days, the medical cannabis movement has placed a great emphasis on patient education, perhaps due to its roots in counterculture and disrupting the pharmaceutical status-quo. The speakers will discuss the endocannabinoid system as we currently understand it, but will integrate that into education and patient care. Patients who are interested in trying cannabinoid therapy may not be educated on the way cannabinoids interact with their bodies. It is important that patients are educated on this topic as clinicians seek to prescribe CBD-based therapy.
