Outlook on Happiness and the Endocannabinoid System
Medical Considerations in THC treatments
Wouldn’t it be very smart to improve the internal efficiency of our endocannabinoid system via maximisation of CB1 receptors before we start treatment with external cannabinoids? With all the knowledge about the endocannabinoid system I feel it is the responsibility of every medical practitioner to educate the patient on habits that influence the efficiency of the endocannabinoid system. Treatment with cannabinoids can in my opinion only prove successful in the long run when the efficiency of the endocannabinoid system is not sacrificed at the same time.
