The integration of nutrition + cannabis

Cellular health is the foundation of health + wellness. The food choices you make have a direct impact on your cellular health. And, food + other lifestyle habits impact your endocannabinoid system – a vital physiological system that maintains balance in the body.
​​​​​​​
Sugar, dietary fat, and stomach pH impact the effect of cannabis in the body. And, specific compounds in foods such green tea, turmeric + soy can upregulate the endocannabinoid system, kicking healing into high gear. Of course, it’s helpful to know how to eat to optimize health + wellness.
