Cannabinoids, Cannabidoil What Is It and How it Helps You?
Cannabinoids, one such being CBD, are the chemical compounds secreted by hemp or cannibis flowers. They mimic compounds naturally produced by our bodies. These compounds are called endocannabinoids. When activated, endocannabinoids maintain an internal balance and wellbeing. To make an important job simple, they basically help the cells communicate with one another. When our endocannabinoid system becomes deficient, chronic, uncomfortable symptoms and physical complications arise.
When cannabinoids are ingested, such as cannabidoil (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they bind to receptor sites throughout our brain and body. Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptor they bind to. They actually mimic and augment the effects of the compounds that are already in our body. These pre-existing compounds are called endogenous cannabinoids. They are named after the compounds found in cannabis because of their astounding similarities. And the home of these compounds is the endocannabinoid system
The endocannabinoid system is made up of 3 main parts:
- Receptors in the nervous system and around the body that endocannabinoids and cannabinoids plug into
- Enzymes that aid in breaking down endocannabinoids and cannabinoids
Today, this system has been virtually starved due to pesticides, processed food, stress and electromagnetic fields, resulting in depletion and deprivation. CBD goes in an actually reduces all that oxidative stress damage, which is the cause of many of today’s illnesses
Picture this system as a nest of hungry baby birds with their mouths open waiting to be fed. Cannabidiol is the cannabinoid that plugs right into those hungry mouths. It goes to the neediest system first. That’s why so many people with so many different conditions are helped by it. Whatever the need at hand, wherever the deficiency may lie, CBD plugs right in and feeds it. After a few weeks of consistent use, your body moves from a place of depletion into nourishment, turning on those receptors.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is found in the flowers and leaves of industrial hemp. Naturally having less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it does not produce any psychoactive effects, but is known for the countless ways in which it benefits our bodies and wellbeing.
CBD is so smart that it knows how to bind with pain producing brain cells, in turn changing their function to relieve chronic pain from the body. It also helps reduce neurological damage caused by free radicals. Cannabidiol helps maintain healthy blood sugar, which can lead to weight loss. It supports the genes that help breakdown fat and increase mitochondria that helps in burning calories.It even makes the heart healthier by reducing artery blockage and stress induced cardiovascular response. We could go on, but you get the picture.
