There is a lot of studies which proves that hemp has major health benefits. Of course, it is not just another dietary supplement but a very important element for human physiology.
What is health?
Before we start talking about the influence of CBD for our health, it is important to explain what is health. Is it possible to define it as a fact that we are not just sick? Kind of but that is not all of it. All aspects of human physiology are based on the balance between opposites. Like negative and positive, plus and minus or fire and water. The purpose is to create homeostasis, healthy physiology balance.
For example, if we take some specific areas of physiology which include the immune system, the contradictions will be anti-inflammation versus inflammation what is correct for system functioning. In relation to the nervous system, we have two opposites: stress and inner calm, what also give us balance. And that means, that opposites need to attract – then our health gains strength.
How does CBD affect the physiological system? First, it regulates the transcription of thousands of genes that naturally reduce inflammation. CBD attacks and modifies genes that are responsible for the production of biochemical anti-inflammatory agents.
CBD can cause homeostasis. How is this happening? Special receptors (ECS) designed for CBD form an endocannabinoid system. Actually, there is more CBD receptors in body than any other type of receptor, so the endocannabinoid system is clearly the largest of its kind in our entire physiology. It was also discovered that we create our own cannabinoids in the body, we have CBD receptors in the central nervous system, blood circulation, bone marrow, organs of the immune system and the lymphatic system.
Why is it so important?
Almost all people, especially in the western part and the United States inhale the most toxins, which is the cause of inflammation such as infections, viruses, bacteria. Also it cause inflammation due to poor diet because of too much fat or sugar.
What symptoms and stress give it all?
If your immune system is inflamed, you risk suffering from autoimmune, rheumatoid, arthritis, hardening, psoriasis and chronic infections. There may also be an inflammation of the central nervous system where these disorders are expressed, e.g. ADHD, migraine, anxiety, PTSD, insomnia and more. Many of these ailments actually did not exist 100-150 years ago or at least they were very rare. Disorders only develop at a time when this is caused by our harmful environment and the toxins that we absorb daily. So, if you suffer from some of these disorders, the CBD can repair and restore the physiological balance by using the endocannabinoid system and thereby providing homeostasis. Of course, this is not something that can only be provided by CBD, but also by diet, exercise and a good lifestyle.
