ACE 2: The Missing Link in Endothelial Dysfunction
Although many cardiovascular disease risk factors are frequently discussed, for some reason ACE2 activity is not usually described. This is unfortunate because decreased ACE2 activity is a major cause of cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality. Interestingly, the ACE2 receptor is the main entry point for infection with SARS CoV-2 virus. In this lecture Dr. Yousef Elyaman will review the RAAS with a special focus on ACE2. Moreover, he will describe some of the potential cardiovascular damage that may occur with COVID-19 disease (as it inactivates ACE2) and will share practical tips that may help improve endothelial function.

CBD Topics for Health Professionals
When the word "cannabinoid" is heard, it is commonly associated with cannabis and then marijuana. While both marijuana and hemp are Cannabis genera, they are not the same.
