Benefits of CBD
Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain...
Understanding the endocannabinoid system and how CBD works to bring about a state of homeostasis to the human body, is key to understanding how CBD works.
The endocannabinoid system is well-researched and scientifically proven and backed by science.
Therefore, the endocannabinoid system – and adequate intake of cannabinoids, like CBD and other medical hemp products – could assist with supporting our immune system.
The human body has cannabinoid receptors designed to allow cannabinoids to improve our health and wellbeing, helping to achieve homeostasis. Activities like yoga, a healthy diet, and consciously focusing on mental and physical well-being all help bring the body into balance – or arrive at that state of homeostasis – and so do the cannabinoids such as CBD.
There’s also a reason we feel “out-of-balance” when we’re sick or anything in our bodies is out of normal range: our physical body craves balance.
Endocannabinoid receptors are smart: they are able to act only on the bodily functions that are out of whack, to achieve precision homeostasis. The receptors cannot over function to negatively affect one system while attempting to bring balance to another. They work where and when they need to.
When homeostasis is achieved, the body works harmoniously – from elements in the blood to multiple organ systems, and beyond. When just one thing – like a hormone, for instance – is out of balance, your health can spiral out of control. Just a small change can affect the entire body negatively. Without homeostasis, we are simply unable to function at our peak.
Homeostasis doesn’t have to be left to chance. The endocannabinoid system can help you achieve it.
Initial research demonstrates the endocannabinoid system’s ability to prevent over-activity in the immune system, which often causes an immune response, mainly inflammation. This inflammation disrupts homeostasis and can cause pain, chemical imbalances, neuro-responses and more.
Therefore, the endocannabinoid system – and adequate intake of cannabinoids, like CBD – could assist with immune system responses.
Some reported benefits derived from CBD products have included:
- Relief from Chronic Pain & Inflammation
- Calming effect and reduced feelings of Anxiety & Depression
