Loren's Story


I have spent the better part of my time since 2008 learning everything I could about the endocannabinoid system. I was driven to this material in search of a solution to my own health issues that I could not find a solution to as the prescription medicine I was being prescribed was not working for my conditions.


In 2008 I had a massive seizure at LaGuardia airport in NYC while waiting curbside for my ride home after a business trip. I woke up in an ambulance and had no idea where I was or where I had come from. It was quite scary. 


I went to a neurologist who ran tests on me. I was told that I had a "seizure disorder" and would need to take anti-seizure drugs or I would not be allowed to drive my car.


This was all very disturbing as I felt broken. The medication began to take its toll on me right away as the side effects were debilitating. The answer I was given for the side effects of the medication was...MORE medication. I ended up taking 5 different prescription drugs that caused my body to break down even more to the point that I was no longer able to work.


I decided that it was time to take matters into my own hands and I started to research to find alternate ways of handling my new situation. This is when I came across the endocannabinoid system.


My discovery was nothing short of revolutionary for my mind and body. I started to learn how diet and cannabinoids influenced disease in the body and completely changed my lifestyle.


I started on a diet that was based on making sure I was balancing the omega 6 and omega 3 levels in my body as well as ingesting cannabinoids through the hemp plant seeds and other sources.


6 months after I started my new lifestyle, focusing on the endocannabinoid system, I was cleared by my neurologist for no longer having seizure activity in my brain and was able to shed all of my prescription drugs.


Not only did my seizures stop, but other issues I was dealing with, such as sleeping issues and arthritic knee pain, started to see relief. This was amazing to me and I strived to learn more about this system that I had never heard of before and was only recently discovered.


I now want to share this information with you in the hopes that you will find relief for things that ail you. I want to help you learn more about your endocannabinoid system and how you can optimize your state of health by focusing on it.




Could you benefit from a holistic lifestyle that optimizes your health based on the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?




Summary Points for ECS


  • The ECS is a recently discovered biological system comprised of lipid messengers that has receptors lining the entire body.

    • The ECS is a homeostatic regulator of inflammation in the human body and therefore plays a role in many inflammation related diseases.

  • Cannabinoids (compounds in the cannabis plant) can act on the ECS as regulators of neuro-transmission flow and homeostatic regulators of inflammation in the body.

  • You can achieve similar health benefits from the cannabinoids contained in the cannabis plant or by eating certain foods and or exercising certain ways to produce 'endocannabinoids'(endogenous cannabis like compounds) .

  • The body's endocannabinoids have similar benefits as the phyto-cannabinoids from the cannabis plant.

  • Omega 3 fatty acids promote anti-inflammatory benefits of ECS.

    • Not all Omega 3 fatty acids are the same.

    • The 3 Main omega 3 compounds are ALA, EPA, and DHA.

    • The omega 3 fatty acids DHA/EPA are similar in action to phyto-cannabinoids such as THC and CBD.
