CBD can be an essential part of keeping you healthy. How? CBD feeds your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to get your body into homeostasis also known as balance. If you have anxiety, insomnia, stress, pain or any kind of inflammation then CBD will help support your ECS.
Your ECS is the key to your best health and a strong immune system. Getting those CB1 & CB2 receptors fired up and making your own endogenous cannabinoids is the name of the game. You do this by supplementing with CBD liquids, gelcaps, edibles and more.
Of course there are other supplements that are known to be immune boosting, such as: Vitamin D, Vitamin C, probiotics, mushroom formulas, oil of oregano and so many more. Here’s an opportunity to add CBD to whatever regimen you currently follow and get that systemic inflammation down, reduce your anxiety, lessen your pain, and feel stronger and ready to fight whatever germs come your way.
The hemp plant is amazing. With 113 different cannabinoids and over 200 terpenes (the essential, aromatic oils of the plant) the possibilities for helping support your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) are endless. Each cannabinoid, whether it be CBD, CBC, CBN, CBG, THCA, etc., stimulates your ECS receptors to make more of your own endogenous cannabinoids. Say that three times fast!
Your endogenous cannabinoids have different names than the cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The work they do in your body is profound as they modulate other systems such as your neurological, digestive and endocrine. By taking CBD supplements, you stimulate receptors throughout your brain and body and increase endogenous cannabinoid production. This is key to toning and supporting the ECS.
If CBD hasn’t been working for you then it may be for any of the following reasons: 1)You may not have purchased a high-quality brand with Certificates of Analysis (COA) that show you exactly what you are buying matches what it says on the bottle; 2) You are not taking a high enough potency thus, you are not getting the results you want; 3) You must be consistent in taking your CBD daily just like you would take any other supplement; and, 4) Allowing enough time for your ECS to get “on-line” and function as well as it should is essential as there are no quick fixes.
Depending on your health situation and the length of time you have been struggling may mean that it will take more time for CBD and your ECS to help get your body in balance. CBD works on your body in foundational ways to reduce systemic inflammation and so much more. Feeling good is worth the time, money and commitment because it frees you up to enjoy the rest of your life. Hooray for Hemp!
No need to worry if you didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions. The truth is that what is most important is to be more mindful of the choices you make about the food you eat, the supplements you take and the kind of exercise that you do. This does not mean making a bunch of big pronouncements. Instead, it is a daily practice of making smaller, thoughtful choices and being kind to yourself.
Winter is a particularly difficult time to think about making changes because we are just hoping the sun comes out to brighten our day and we may be struggling with feeling well emotionally and mentally. Grey days can really bring us down so it is particularly good to know that CBD can help shift one’s mood. If you’re battling anxiety, depression, insomnia or PTSD — CBD can assist your Endocannabinoid System in positively impacting your body, mind and spirit.
