Dr. Ethan Russo On Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency

WASHINGTON:  This week I made the trek to Vashon Island to see a talk on Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency by Dr. Ethan Russo at the monthly VIMEA meetup.

Speaking to a full room of cannabis patients, growers, processors, and enthusiasts, Dr. Russo zoned in on chronic medical conditions that demonstrate endocannabinoid deficiency.

One of the biggest things that I took away was his point that the fact that the brain and the gut are very connected. You can’t have a healthy brain without a healthy gut and vice versa. I also appreciated that he mentioned other natural ways to boost your endocannabinoid system: proper sleep, cardiovascular exercise, and consuming an anti-inflammatory diet.
