USA | Most Medical Schools Don’t Cover the Endocannabinoid System, They All Should

THE HUMAN SOLUTION. The endocannabinoid system is the second largest neurotransmitting system in the body, so why aren’t medical schools teaching it?

When will more medical schools include the second largest neurotransmitter system, the endocannabinoid system (ECS), into medical school curriculum? In 2013, Cardiologist Dr. David Allen did a preliminary survey to determine which schools teach the ECS and found that only a total of 13 percent of U.S. medical schools even mentioned it. Now, we’re not talking about cannabis here, but a neurotransmitter system that was discovered in the late 1980s, almost 30 years ago. We know that it is critical for homeostasis, yet few medical schools have seen fit to train medical students about it.
