Course Description

The endocannabinoid system is present in all animals from primitive Cnidarians to primates, except for insects. It was undiscovered until 1990 when the easing of restrictions into research into THC determined there are membrane receptors and endogenous molecules that the plant molecules from cannabis interact with to create its medical benefits. This class will explain how this works.

Things to Learn

This lecture will present the scientific data that supports that cannabis can improve outcomes for the several conditions commonly seen in veterinary practice, including neoplasia, the management of pain and mobility and addressing the inflammatory diseases of the digestive system. The endocannabinoid system will be discussed in greater detail so as to provide an in-depth explanation of the mechanisms of action whereby cannabis and CBD can provide support for these conditions.
