Webinar Summary: Harnessing the Power of the Endocannabinoid System to Support Immunity

In November we hosted Miles Sarill, MSc, National Educator, CV Sciences for his FREE webinar, Harnessing the Power of the Endocannabinoid System to Support Immunity.  







About this Webinar:

In this webinar, our speaker touched on everything from biochemistry to history and explained what the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is, how it works and what you can do to modulate your ECS and support a healthy immune response.

If you have not heard of the ECS, you may be surprised to learn that our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids that come from plants, like hemp-derived CBD, are known as phytocannabinoids. In our bodies, cannabinoids interact with the ECS – a biological system that is involved in several important physiological processes (including sleep and immune response) and is highly responsive to changes in diet, lifestyle and supplementation.


What You Will Learn:  

  • What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
  • How stress can impact the ECS and your immune response
  • How to support your Endocannabinoid System
  • How CV Sciences’ new immunity products, CV Acute & CV Defense, provide comprehensive immune support when taken with PlusCBD

About Our Speaker:

Miles Sarill, MSc | National Educator, CV Sciences

As National Educator for CV Sciences, Miles Sarill has authored articles and book chapters for publication, appeared as a subject-matter expert guest on national radio, and has lectured around the country about the science of cannabinoids. Prior to this role, he received his Master of Science in Experimental Medicine from McGill University in Montreal, where he studied the regulation of lung antioxidant genes to environmental toxicants.

While completing his Master’s, Miles worked as an educator at Cambridge Naturals, a renowned natural foods and supplements retailer in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His research background also includes studying cannabinoid-like compounds in the Peruvian Maca root botanical extract at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2008. Miles’ interests combine the foundations of biochemistry with a passion for botanical medicine.
