About the authorKaryemaitre Aliffe, MD
My work focuses on advancing our understanding of the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) and Cannabis to realize our fullest potential for enhancing global human health and wellness. Beyond Cannabis, I enjoy sharing the wonder of nature and insights of science in a manner that is accessible, yet thought-provoking, and enhances life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Within each of us, natural cannabinoids stimulate the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) dramatically, balancing our vital physiologic systems towards homeostasis. Our ECS also modulates our cognitive and emotional functions, helping us better manage the changes and stresses of daily life. By integrating ECS measures as fundamental vital signs, the correlations between out state-of-mind and state-of-health become now self-evident and actionable.
