Ever heard of your Endocannabinoid System? If you think Cannabis can be used solely for recreational purposes, then you probably haven’t. Our bodies have CB1 and CB2 receptors all throughout, that regulate just about every physiological function that we have. This system is responsible for maintaining cellular homeostasis, which means balance within the body, such as body temperature, hormone levels, glucose levels, etc. All of us have it, even our pets!
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of 113 different cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. THC is another cannabinoid, which has a psychoactive component to it, CBD doesn’t however and actually helps balance out the effects of THC. Research done on these two cannabinoids has shown promise for treating over 250 medical conditions known to man. Imagine once they actually research the other 111 cannabinoids, what they might find?!
These receptors are a lock and key system. This plant is the only substance known on the planet that we have these receptors for. It is as if we are hardwired to receive the many benefits of this plant. It is similar to software to our bodies that triggers healing on an internal level. Cannabis is non-toxic, there is no lethal overdose and there are no adverse side effects. Babies 6 weeks old are given it.
Our bodies produce cannabinoids, but not at the rate we prefer, they are also used up due to stressors in our environment. This is why when we use CBD Oil, is feels so good, because it resonates with our bodies on a cellular level. When activated these receptors can help alleviate a myriad of conditions such as Chronic Pain, Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, MS, Tremors, Seizure Disorders, IBS, Alzheimers, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s, Cancer, Lyme, Lupus, Migraines, Menstrual Cramps, Rare Diseases, Skin Conditions, etc. Many of the above mentioned conditions, we now know are symptoms of Endocannabinoid Deficiencies.
Whether we like it or not, whether we acknowledge it or not, whether we approve of it or not, whether we are even aware of it, or not, our bodies receive healing from this plant.
But don’t just believe me, if you go to PUBMED and look up how many peer reviewed, scientifically studied articles there on this complex system and the many diseases/conditions that it treats, you will find there has been one written every other day, for the last 20 years!
So if anyone tries to tell you that, ‘There just hasn’t been enough research done on the subject…’ you know where you can tell them to go….
