In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom talks with anesthesiologist and pain management specialist Dr. James Taylor about the healing properties of cannabinoids. He discusses the role the body’s cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system play in maintaining homeostasis and health. He also shares how the cannabinoids in CBD can be used to help moderate or eliminate pain by tapping into this system of receptors (the endo-cannabinoid system). Dr. Taylor explains how a mix of cannabinoids can be customized for an individual to help with sleep, anxiety and pain.
