Do we really how much about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) at all and do the terpenes in cannabis matter?  We ask Dr Russo just that and more in this episode.  We discuss how without clinical research to support the cannabis movement we don’t have a foundation for the future of this plant medically.  The cannabis prohibition greatly affected the development of this much needed research but with new evidence emerging supporting the Entourage effect we talk through what this mean for us today.
