The endocannabinoid system: science and energetics


The endocannabinoid system: science and energetics 

In-person class held in Marshall, NC at Terra Sylva School of Botanical Medicine

This class will address some foundational understanding of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex signaling system of the body only discovered in the 1990s. Recently this system has gained a lot of attention, yet it’s still a grey area to many. This class will break down the hype and help you understand the importance of the ECS and its role in your overall health and wellness. We will look at the role it plays in the homeostasis of the body (or allostasis) exploring the discoveries science has made, and also consider the energetic side of this system and the medicine best suited to support it. 

I will also cover the questions around the medicine that is being marketed as a cure-all. When is it actually the right medicine and when can you choose something else? What makes some h e m p products works while others seem to have little to no effect? You’ll leave knowing how to source quality products that provide results and alternatives for when the medicine is not the best fit.  

While there is still much to be discovered about the ECS, science has linked this underlying system to 

  • appetite and digestion
  • metabolism
  • chronic pain
  • inflammation and other immune system responses
  • mood
  • learning and memory
  • motor control
  • sleep
  • cardiovascular system function
  • muscle formation
  • bone remodeling and growth
  • liver function
  • reproductive system function
  • stress
  • skin and nerve function
  • Feelings of safety and security

The ENS is foundational for emotional and cognitive wellness. It’s a fundamental system that underlies many other chronic issues that manifest. I’ve even found understanding this system a huge key to helping unwind and process trauma. In the class, we go into these theories and spend time understanding the primal energetics of this system and how it can be a gateway to feeling embodied, safe and moving through difficult stuck emotions. 

I have been working with the ECS with clients for the past few years as well as making and sourcing medicine, both have provided me experiential knowledge on top of the many hours of training on the subject.

The shelf life will be on your bottle - "1-2 years from [date bottled]" the gap in time here is pretty big, but that's because it depends on how it's taken care of. 

Care Tips: keep in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Do not leave in your car or the freezer, however the fridge will greatly increase the shelf life while providing an extra refreshing spray! Avoid opening the cap often to keep oxygen and contaminates out. Keep somewhere you'll remember to use it!

We suggest using the medicine in 6 months-1yr. Why? We don't use chemical preservatives and plant medicine can degrade over time. Skin care should be treated like food, used fresh and whole. So use it up, #treatyoself!
