Event description
Kapiti - Come and understand the role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in balancing our brain and body and plants that can activate it.

About this event

Stress, trauma, poor diet and lifestyle all play a big role in upsetting the sensitive balance of our brain chemistry and can cause anxiety, depression, fatigue and other symptoms that can lead to long-term chronic illness. During this workshop we will take you through the complexities of how stress impacts on our body and brain and how our natural health systems try to respond to stressors to maintain balance.

We will discuss the role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in assisting with recovery from such health conditions and returning balance to our brains. The difference between human and plant cannabinoids and how to activate our ECS using natural plants like cannabis, Peruvian Maca, ceremonial cacao and plant terpenes. Ideal for anyone wanting to learn more about cannabinoids, those suffering from inflammatory health conditions, mental health, fatigue, hormonal imbalances or chronic stress.

Topics Discussed:

• The stress response and our brain explained

• The HPA axis and how our hormones are impacted by stress

• The role of stress in chronic inflammation, fatigue, auto-immunity, hormonal dysbalance, mental health and other conditions

• The endocannabinoid system and its protective role against stress

• The difference between plant cannabinoids and human cannabinoids

• Re-balancing the body using cannabinoid therapy

• Direct cannabimimetics and indirect entourage cannabinoids

• Cannabinoid case study with Maca - the traditional use of the plant medicine in Peru.

• How Incan shamans used cannabinoid therapy to treat and manage inflammatory and stress related conditions

• Cannabinoids in ceremonial cacao and how to use it for an enhanced entourage effect

• How you can use maca and other cannabinoid plants to improve your own health

Sally Huapaya | Seleno Health

Sally is a native Peruvian of Incan descent, with a Bachelor in industrial engineering and specialist in traditional health enhancing Peruvian botanicals.
