Before cannabis prohibition, hemp was used for thousands of years to treat a number of ailments including epilepsy, headaches, arthritis, pain, depression, and nausea. Thanks to advances in modern medicine, and recently passed laws, we are now able to study the benefits.
The Endocannabinoid system is a network of chemical receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems. These receptors bond to Cannabinoids (CBD) and can also be found in the digestive system, immune system, most bodily organs, and the brain. In fact, there are more CBD neuromodulatory (brain) receptors than any other type of receptor in the brain! Fun Fact: CBD receptors are found not only in the human ECS, but also in all animals.
ECS and Homeostasis
The Endocannabinoid System helps fine-tune most of our vital physiological functions. When given CBDs to attach to, the ECS promotes homeostasis (the stability in systems promoting a condition in which the body performs at its maximum potential). Homeostasis affects everything from sleep, to appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood, and reproduction. Here is a list of many of the health benefits one can receive from taking CBD daily: (List here)
Who needs CBDs?
Everyone!! CBD’s are not only for those with medical ailments or diseases. Every person and every animal has CBD receptors, which are there for a reason! CBD’s can be taken the same way as a vitamin or supplement by any person (or animal) of any age.
Did you know? Exercise and vitamin E can help support ECS brain signalling!
The majority of doctors are not yet trained on the Endocannabinoid System, but there are some institutions that have begun to integrate this in their medical training. Hopefully it will be common knowledge soon. Side note: beware of perscription CBD’s as these are synthetic versions and can be very harmful.Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency Hypothesis
It is now believed that by supplementing the body with naturally occurring CBDs from plants, we can correct deficiency, relieve symptoms and restore health. In fact, scientists found that certain conditions which are associated with hypersensitivity to pain or stimulus, such as migraines, fibromyalgia and IBS, are due to the Endocannabinoid System being dysfunctional. This is referred to as ECS Deficiency Syndrome.
What this means? It is hypothesized that not only are CBDs good for you, but in fact, not having CBDs could actually be the root of many immune deficiency disorders as well as physical and mental illnesses.Now available on Amazon, try our CBD (from hemp) Chiki Cannabliss Balm (aka CCB), in an easy-to-use twist-up tube!
