What is the endocannabinoid system and how does it benefit our Mind, Body, Spirit?
Every ‘Body’ has an endocannabinoid system with receptors for cannabinoids. Cannabinoids balance our endocrine system, which balances homeostasis, which balances health on all levels!
In this educational video medical cannabis expert Dr. Dustin Sulak explains your endocannabinoid system and the role it plays in maintaining harmony and balance within your body. For more free education please view. https://healer.com/
Endocannabinoids are synthesized on‐demand from cell membrane arachidonic acid derivatives and have a local effect and short half‐life before being degraded by the enzymes fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) and monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL).
Interestingly, the Cannabis plant uses cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease.
In humans, free radicals cause aging, cancer, and impaired healing, which can lead to a variety of pathologies, from neurodegenerative to immune disorders. Antioxidants found in plants have long been promoted as natural supplements to prevent free radical harm.

This introduction to the Endocannabinoid System has been written thanks to the brilliant yearly review of recent scientific literature of “Emerging clinical applications of cannabis and cannabinoids” by Paul Armentino, Deputy Diector of NORML (Check and support their work if you read from the States!) They have a gift for concise and educational summary and I felt it was the best approach (compared to the peer-reviewed publication model I often adopt), in order to introduce the basics of the Endocannabinoid System.
