Developing an understanding of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is essential to restoring wellness in complex clinical presentations of the nervous system. Building this knowledge dramatically increases clinical outcomes in complex trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and presentations of the nervous system.
Find out all you need to know about how the endocannabinoid system in the brain primarily influences neuronal synaptic communication, and affects biological functions—including eating, anxiety, learning and memory, reproduction, metabolism, growth and development.
