Five arguments for, and one argument against, renaming the Endocannabinoid System

In this blog post, the author presents five reasons to consider changing the name of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and one reason to keep its current name. The author argues that the name of the ECS does not accurately represent its natural and integral part of our biology. The name limits our understanding of its potential therapeutic applications, ignores its complexity and diversity of components, and hinders its public acceptance and incorporation into medical education. The author suggests a more precise and comprehensive name that would better represent the diverse interactions that happen within the ECS.
