Many may be surprised to learn that our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids. In our bodies, cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) – a biological system that is involved in several important physiological processes (including sleep and immune response) and is highly responsive to changes in diet, lifestyle, and supplementation. In this webinar, Miles Sarill, MSc, will touch on everything from biochemistry to history as he explains what the ECS is, how it works and what you can do to modulate your ECS and support a healthy immune response. In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
- The endocannabinoid system
- The role of the ECS in vital physiological processes, such as sleep and immune response
- How stress can impact the ECS and your immune response
- How to support your endocannabinoid system
- Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and its historical use in supporting the immune system
About Miles Sarill, MSc
As National Educator for CV Sciences, Miles Sarill has authored articles and book chapters for publication, appeared as a subject-matter expert guest on national radio, and lectured around the country about the science of cannabinoids. Prior to this role, he received his Master of Science in Experimental Medicine from McGill University in Montreal, where he studied the regulation of lung antioxidant genes to environmental toxicants. While completing his Master’s, Miles worked as an educator at Cambridge Naturals, a renowned natural foods and supplements retailer in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His research background also includes studying cannabinoid-like compounds in the Peruvian Maca root botanical extract at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2008. Miles’ interests combine the foundations of biochemistry with a passion for botanical medicine.
