Endocannabinoid System Online Course
Learn About The Endocannabinoid System
- Two hour online course
- Learn all about the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) through our advanced learning system
- Discover the role ECS plays in every physiological system in the human body
Did you know that the Endocannabinoid System helps control basic metabolic function? Or that the ECS allows human cells to communicate with each other? The ECS is one of the main mechanisms all mammals utilize to stay in physiochemical balance and free from disease. Low levels of chemicals produced by the ECS can be associated with ailments including, but not limited to: migraines, IBS, fibromyalgia, PTSD, infertility, complex regional pain syndrome and liver fibrosis.
In this online course you will learn all about the Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, and the role it plays in controlling the human physiological system. The ECS enables the sharing of information which allows individual cells to “talk” to each other. Although the ECS is 600 million years old and every living mammal has an ECS, the ECS was discovered 1988 by an American chemist, Allyn Howlett, Ph.D.
Dr. Howlett located a large grouping of receptors in the brain that responded to THC. The densest receptor concentrations are in the cortex, cerebellum, hippocampus, and basal ganglia, the brain areas that coordinate movement and control emotions, memory, pain, pleasure, and reproduction.
This course includes a video overview of the ECS by Dr. Jake Felice. Also included are outlines of the CB1 and CB2 receptors, anandamide and 2-AG. To understand how cannabinoids fit with our bodies, this online course will also discuss micro-dosing, neuroprotectants and the entourage effect. Additional white paper research, definitions and statistics related to the ECS will be presented. Downloadable infographics of the ECS and the Medical Marijuana 411 Treatment Guide are also includes in this course.
Dr. Jake Felice
Dr. Jake Felice, ND, LMP, worked with Medical Marijuana 411 to create a video explanation of the ECS and provides an informative overview to help you to understand the complexities of the ECS.
Dr. Sue Sisley
Dr. Sue Sisley provides expert analysis of her research and findings from anecdotal patient reports, as she discusses with Medical Marijuana 411, how medical marijuana works with patients who suffer from PTSD.
Medical Marijuana Learning utilizes multiple experts and peer reviewed scientific research as the basis of all of our online cannabis courses. In addition to content provided by Dr. Jake Felice and Dr. Sue Sisley, this course provides information from a Master’s Research Project submitted to Masters of Science, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. The Visualization of the ECS was developed in collaboration with Biomedical Communications, Department of Biology, University of Toronto at Mississauga, The Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids and with funding provided in part by the Quebec Pain Research Network.
