THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM:The endocannabinoid system influences nearly every bodily function. Without endocannabinoids, many normal processes begin to go awry. Not long after the first cannabinoid was isolated from the cannabis plant, scientists discovered the human body produces similar substances. These endogenous (naturally occurring in our bodies) cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids, are neurotransmitters that perform a wide range of functions in the human body. From regulating pain to reducing anxiety, cannabinoids and their receptors play a huge
CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a chemical compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. It is not mind altering like marijuana. CBD will not make you high. Over the past 40 years, there have been numerous studies that highlight the potential benefits of CBD and how it can support the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
Every mammal has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors throughout their bodies. This system is involved in almost all brain and body functions, from our ability to handle pain, stress and anxiety to our mobility and muscle health. Sublingual CBD Oils are the most popular CBD products, thanks to their high bioavailability and ease of use. Other popular routes of administration include topical salves and patches and capsules.
Dosing suggestions-remember everyone is different!!
Importantly, CBD has been found to be well-tolerated and absent of adverse effects at doses up to 600 MG/day. It was also comparable to placebo in producing no physiological effects at these relatively high doses.
Some of the uses:
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are different from NSAIDs or steroids in that CBD chemically alters the proinflammatory process, as opposed to blocking a single step in the inflammatory pathway
CBD is an inhibitor of tryptophan degradation, which leads to increased levels of brain serotonin.Serotonin is one of the most ubiquitous signaling molecules in mammals. It is intricately involved in both mood and cognition, and immune system signaling.
CBD is a potent antioxidant comparable to Vitamins C and E in terms of reduction of oxidative free radicals in vivo and in vitro. This contributes to anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of CBD as well as to its antifungal and antibacterial effects.
