Medical cannabis interacts with a person’s endocannabionoid system, a physiologic system within all people which functions to promote balance and healing at a cellular level. The endocannabinoid system is already hard at work helping you recover from injuries, coordinate your immune system, balance the brain and nervous system, and much more. Using cannabis appropriately can enhance these healing properties.
