Endo-Cannabinoid Support (ECS) Therapy

Make an appointment to talk to our doctors about how ECS treaments could be useful to your healthcare needs.

The endo-cannabinoid system is an important component of human health already present within the body. It is centrally involved in the regulation of multiple important physiological processes. Its effects are mediated by cannabinoid receptors that are widely distributed throughout the body and central nervous system. The function of the endocannabinoid system may be supported or supplemented by the use of plant-derived cannabinoids supplied as medication.

Examples of conditions for which endocannabinoid support may be useful include:
