Cannabis marijuana endocannabinoid chemistry

2017 June 14: We were so excited to host Ryan Latreille to educate the community on the expanding knowledge around the medicinal uses of Cannabis.

The Chemistry of Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System

Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, Addiction, Pain, PTSD, Cancer, and over 200 different conditions have been effectively treated with cannabis. How is it possible that a single plant can have such wide ranging efficacy? The answer lies in the physiology of our own body. You could say using cannabis as medicine is part of our genetic makeup, that it's in our DNA!

During this talk we will explore researchers' current understanding of the endocannabinoid system and how cannabis effects our bodies on a cellular level.
