What Is the Cannabinoid Receptor System?
The cannabinoid receptor system, otherwise known as the endocannabinoid system or ECS, is a complex network of receptors distributed throughout the body that react with cannabinoids to regulate a whole host of bodily functions.
Make no mistake – North America is in the midst of a prescription drug crisis. Dominated by an addiction to opioids, prescription drug overdoses claim the lives of well over 100 North Americans per day, making them more deadly than traffic accidents or gun violence. The USA and Canada are the number one and two users of opioids in the world, responsible for more than 80% of global consumption with less than 5% of the population. Clearly, North Americans have a problem with opioid abuse. How did things get so bad?
The Birth of an Epidemic
Dr. Andrea Furlan, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto, commented recently that pain management is at the core of Canada’s opioid crisis and the key to a solution.
In an article originally published in "The Conversation", an independent and non-profit Academic Journal and reprinted in the National Post, Dr. Furlan noted that two people die every day in Ontario from an opioid overdose. The prevalence of opioids and the physician’s prescription notepad share the responsibility.
