The endocannabinoid system is a complex, redundant system that maintains the balance of normal health. It is a part of the eicosanoid system and interacts extensively with various eicosanoids and their receptors. Imbalance in the endocannabinoid/eicosanoid system leads to diseases that can be chronic and lifethreatening, such as pain, diabetes, epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder. Plantbased medicines can be used to reestablish the necessary balance and effectively treat these disorders. However, it is always best to live in balance and allow the body to heal itself.
