This course is a comprehensive overview of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) - a physiologic communication system that helps regulate various functions within the human body.


  • This system has recently been discovered, and numerous preclinical studies are linking various diseases and chronic health conditions to an imbalance of the endocannabinoid system.

  • For many who suffer from chronic diseases and ailments related to deficiencies within the endocannabinoid system, cannabidiol (CBD) has the potential to provide a safer, effective and less toxic option.

  • Of note is that while large scale randomized double blind clinical trials on CBD is still lacking, this course is designed to give the student a general overview and basic understanding of the endocannabinoid system in which CBD may potentially play an integral role.


This course is supported by the Physicians CBD Council. The mission of the Council is to advocate for medical research for therapeutic opportunities and educate on both risk and potential health benefits of cannabis based on current published data.
