Arnold Warkinton is an advocate, educator, and overall science geek. Arnold has been fascinated by the complexity and impact of the Endocannabinoid system (ECS), especially concerning its implications for stress, pain, sleep, mental health, and wellness.

Arnold recognized the massive knowledge gap around the ECS and the impact of Cannabinoids on our bodies. While many are focused on Cannabis and how it affects you, Arnold is focused on your Endocannabinoid system, and how you influence it through exercise, diet, and cannabinoid consumption.

Arnold takes a biopsychosocial approach to health and wellness, grounded in strong communication and interpersonal skills. Arnold is personally driven to reduce the stigma and increase the quality of education around the ECS and cannabinoids, as well as mental health awareness and pain science education.



My goal is to bring the latest scientific studies to our Healthcare Practitioners.  I will go through the multiple studies currently being published in addition to launching a study through the Endocannabinoid Association of Canada on Cannabis Consumption.  



I take complex concepts and present them in a manner that will facilitate the learning process.  The Endocannabinoid System is this complex system and I ensure you will walk away with an understanding that is both functional and relevant when you work with me.
