A two post (from two sites) series focusing on the key health importance of the human endocannabinoid system (ECS), what it has to do with the intense legal debates at various levels of government, and why teaching about it from the medical school level through the entire medical system is critical to whole plant cannabis medicine eventually finding its fuller flowering (so to speak) and rightful place at medicine’s table….

….The articles, btw, explain science’s growing knowledge of the fundamental underlying medical workings of the ECS which support the Initiative. This is part one.

Excerpt: “The ECS is implicated in everything from chronic pain, tumor growth, metabolic diseases, anxiety, and epilepsy. Scientists have seen that compounds within the cannabis plant interact with the ECS, and in the process ease symptoms such as nausea during chemotherapy, chronic pain and can even reduce epileptic seizures.”

And yet, these very compounds are still classified as having no accepted medical use, a decision made prior to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system.”

Highly recommended reading…. …you grasp this, you understand the basis of the science behind all of medical cannabis’ many useful, and in some cases, very important benefits.

More – especially on current medical training on the ECS – in part two….
