Overview - Microbiome

Description of Microbiome

The concept of the “human super organism” is often used to describe the microbiome. The human super organism consists of the human body (the host) and the vast variety of microbial organisms (e.g. viruses, bacteria, fungi) that live within the body and on the surface of the skin. Some microbial members of the “super organism” are disruptive intruders, such as dermatophytes or fungi that cause onychomycosis (foot and nail fungus), while others are beneficial organisms called probiotics (e.g., Acidophilus, Bifidum, Akkermansia muciniphila). Most fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, and yogurt naturally contain an adundance of probiotic cultures.

While it is well established that the gut contains all components of the classical ECS (i.e., CB1, CB2, AEA, 2-AG, FAAH, MAGL) and as such is involved in regulating gut motility, permeability, and inflammatory processes the connection between the microbiome, probiotics and components of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is only beginning to be better understood. However, early data suggests a complex interplay between the ECS and the microbiome that may be individually targeted to induce a number of health related effects using diet, nutrition, beneficial bacteria, and cannabinoid-based therapeutics thus revealing novel opportunities for the clinical practice.

Microbiome Properties and Effects

Cross-talk between the ECS and microbiota may be beneficial in mitigating:
• Depression
• Stress responses
• Metabolic disorders (e.g., Obesity, Diabetes, Metabolic syndrome)
• Dysbiosis
• Chronic pain
• Inflammation (e.g., Colitis, IBS, Atherosclerosis, Cardiometabolic disease)
• Neurological disorders (Alzheimer's)
• Mood disorders (e.g., Depression)
• Immune system disorders (e.g., HIV, Multiple Sclerosis)
• Respiratory illness (e.g., ARDS)

Therapeutic Synergies noted with:
• Mediterranean diet
• Vitamin D
• L. Acidophilus, Bifidum, Akkermansia muciniphila
