Core Knowledge of the Endocannabinoid System

As medical cannabis legalization continues to expand across the country, it is becoming more important than ever for staff working with cannabis in dispensing facilities to understand the science behind medical cannabis – and that means an understanding of the role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is critical (or the first step).

Since its discovery twenty years ago, a huge body of evidence and peer-reviewed research has shown that the ECS is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. This course, presented by Dr. Dustin Sulak, covers key components of the ECS, the effect of endocannabinoids on physiologic systems, synthetic cannabinoids and cannabinoid-opioid interactions.
