The Endocannabinoid System: What You Need to Know for Optimal Health

RESCHEDULED FROM AUGUST 21, 2019! TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. Since cannabis became legal for medical use in California, there has been a massive increase in products on the market which has only accelerated since recreational use was legalized this year. Suddenly terms like “endocannabinoid” and “anandamide” have become household words, and everyone’s grandparents are carrying vape pens. But does a person REALLY need to become a cannabis user to optimize the endocannabinoid system? After-all, this system has been part of every animal’s body since the beginning of time and cats haven’t been smoking weed for all these years! What if someone wants to experience the benefits of cannabis but doesn’t want to get “high”? What if there were other plants or foods or even lifestyle things a person could do which could help them relieve pain, anxiety, digestive complaints, and more without needing to go to a dispensary? In this groundbreaking talk, Lisa Nicholson, L.Ac. will share her knowledge of the endocannabinoid system, what it does, and how to optimize its function. Attendees will learn: 1)      What is the endocannabinoid system? 2)      What does it do? 3)      What substances stimulate its receptors and “turn it on’? 4)      The difference between cannabis and hemp (it’s NOT what you think!) 5)      Active ingredients in the cannabis family of plants, their benefits, AND their down sides, including THC, CBD, and terpenes 6)      Legal issues surrounding use of cannabis and hemp products in California 7)      Other herbs, foods, and lifestyle changes you can make to optimize this physiological system WITHOUT using cannabis products 8)      And so much more… Tickets are limited, and available for just $25 with advance purchase Space is extremely limited, and MUST be reserved.
