- Dr. D.'s Cannabis Talks
The endocannabinoid system? Never heard of her!
Dr. Denise Foster, PhD, MSN, RN, CNE is writing a chapter for a new nursing textbook on the subject, so I invited her on to educate me on the subject.
Tune into Ep 54 to learn what the endocannabinoid system is. When it was discovered. How it works to regulate the body. And why our bodies need cannabis.
Dr. Denise Foster is a PhD, MSN & Certified Nurse Educator. She also served on the Board of Directors as Secretary of the American Cannabis Nurses Association and is in the process of writing a chapter entitled, “The Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS): Physiology,” for the first-ever cannabis nursing textbook, set to be published Spring 2021.
Who better to come on the show to educate me and my listeners about the Endocannabinoid System?? We discuss the ECS, the history of its discovery, as well as some of the potential changes coming to the NCLEX – an exam nursing students must pass before they can practice. We also discussed how the NCSBN Medical Marijuana Guidelines will impact nurses across the U.S. as they are now charged with understanding this important physiological body system.
