The Endocannabinoid System

Understanding the science and the physiology of safety and the herbs that go with it

  Enroll in Course

Have you been wanting to understand the uses of "the plant" beyond the hype?

Have you heard it can cure almost everything (it IS helpful in many situations and it can’t cure everything.)?

What’s the deal with CBD oil?

Have you been hearing about all the benefits of CBD and wanting to try and see if it could help you?

Are you trying to wade through the onslaught of new products?

This course is specifically designed give you the baseline of knowledge to confidently walk into a dispensary (or visit any website) and be an informed consumer.

The class will begin with the not well-known or publicized internal Endogenous Cannabinoid System.

  • "The Plant" works because we make our own, endogenous cannabinoids. These chemicals within us and the receptors that they bind allow the magic of "The Plant" to work within us.
  • The chemicals, the receptors and the enzymes we make are all part of the Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS).
  • The Endocannabinoid system’s task is to modulate the nervous, Immune, Endocrine, Digestive, Reproductive and Microcirculatory systems. It also modulates inflammation and pain.

We will spend our time unpacking and understanding the chemistry of this little-known system as well as exploring issues with a deficiency in this system. It bodes well for us to understand the deficiency since it underlies most major chronic diseases.

Finally, you will learn ways to assist restoring balance of the system with lifestyle and herbs.

"The Plant" Materia Medica

We will then move into discussing the Materia medica of the "The Plant"; starting with a little herstory, botany and growing considerations.

Preparation and Dose Considerations

Since this beloved plant cannot cure everything – you'll learn proper uses including preparation and dose considerations.

Understand the Balance of CBD and THC

We will spend considerable time on the latest science regarding the mechanism of action within the body so we can understand WHY certain strains are beneficial and why certain strains can exacerbate the problem. We will answer questions about CBD oil, what it is good for and when you actually need THC.

"These classes are chock full of pertinent and valuable information while being engaging and fun. Tammi has a special gift of being able to distill science into an easy to comprehend language. I left with a deeper understanding of physiology and lots of new information about inflammation, allergies, and many other things" - Lisa Schwartz

Hi, I'm Tammi

As a physiology instructor and lecturer, I work with hundreds of students each year to empower them to understand their own bodies and HOW and WHY medicine works.

This course is an invitation for you to be involved and gain inside access to this research as it unfolds (and have fun, of course).

My relationship with "the plant" began late in my life.

My first exploration with her as medicine began when I had severe menstrual cramps due to what we later learned were fibroids.

I had tried every intervention when a medical colleague recommended I make a tincture with "the plant" and a few other herbs.

No, the story doesn’t end with the painful cramps stopping with a tincture. It had me feeling more altered than I already was due to the extreme pain (I mean extreme. Vomiting, fetal position for 18 hours kinda pain). I decided I didn’t want to feel more altered so shelved the tincture.

But it got me thinking.

I trusted my colleague. I trusted the plant, even though I didn’t know her very well. I got curious. Thus began my journey of combing the science journals, and attending medical cannabis conferences so i could get direction and learn from the leaders in the field.

For years researchers were reluctant to take a deep and serious look at the medicinal benefits of cannabis, but now study after study is showing some of the profound ways this much-maligned plant can bring comfort and healing.

I had been teaching anatomy and physiology for 31 years – and it became clear to me there was a need to deepen my research and teaching on cannabis and more specifically the physiology of how it works.

In 2014 I started focusing on teaching more specific and advanced topics, and the research about the Endocannabinoid system & cannabis was starting to have an impact on the wider culture. I knew very little about the healing benefits of cannabis and her impact on our well-being.

After experiencing, researching, and learning the true healing power of this plant and the receptivity and hunger for knowledge from the healing community, I decided this information needed to become more in-depth training to help people really understand this plant, beyond the myths and simple lack of real information about her as a true healing ally.

This course is the culmination of this work, and as I continue to dedicate myself to the research the course will continue to grow.

Every student who joins Transition Zones will now have the upgraded version of the ECS course, and when you enroll today in the ECS course you will have all future updates as well. My commitment to you as an instructor is to always provide my latest research and updates.

With that, I invite you to join the community of students who are committed to understanding and honoring this incredible master plant in the Endocannabinoid System and Cannabis Materia Medica Course.
