The Endocannabiniod System & Pain Management

May 12, 2021


We are proud to present Maui Grown Therapies’ Education Advisor, Michael Backes in our next episode of our Maui Grown Mana’o Live Event series. Michael will discuss the Endocannabinoid System and Pain Management. The endocannabinoid system is the body’s system responsible for regulating and balancing many processes in the body to help maintain homeostasis (conditions to maintain a healthy living system). This system helps maintain the immune system, communication between cells, appetite and metabolism as well as regulating the perception of pain.

In his presentation, Michael will discuss the different types of pain, the benefits of treating pain with cannabis, how certain cannabinoids can target different types of pain and how cannabis can be effective for various conditions. If you have friends or family members that struggle with any type of pain, please share this great opportunity with them. We hope you will join us on June 10th for this exceptional speaker and informative episode of Maui Grown Mana’o, you will not be disappointed!
