CBD oil is one of the best kept secrets of cannabis. Did you know that thousands of people are benefitting from these compounds every day? I had a very interesting conversation with a potential customer over the weekend, and she was curious to understand everything about this topic.
We want to shed some light on this subject for you. More than likely, you have already heard about the importance of CBD oil and how it can transform your daily routine. Many people are hesitant to try it because of the plant its related to, however, the variety of reasons why you should be using it, heavily outweigh why you shouldn’t use CBD oil.
If you’re curious about the oil, let me explain some of the great benefits of this botanical and why you’re going to love it.
Discovering CBD Oil Benefits
One of the many reasons to use CBD is because of the many compounds which are found within.
CBD first came into the public eye back in 2013 through a CNN documentary called “Weed”. Dr. Sanjay Gupta found a girl named Charlotte who battled with a form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome.
Poor Charlotte suffered 300 grand mal seizures every week and her parents were absolutely scared to death. This forced them to search for alternative remedies for their child. Finally, they found something online called CBD, and this is when they began treating Charlotte successfully. The report illustrated how the high-content CBD oil stopped her seizures. Furthermore, to this day, high-content CBD is sometimes known as “Charlotte’s Web,” in honor of this little girl and her family.
You are not alone in your search for something better. Every day, there are thousands of people who become educated on the importance of CBD.
As we have already discussed, your body has a dormant system called the Endocannabinoid System which becomes activated upon the introduction of CBD oil. By discovering CBD you are opening up a whole new world for your body.
Importance of CBD oil Receptors
Our body has receptors for just about anything. This includes receptors for CBD. These are activated upon the introduction of CBD to your endocannabinoid system and these are called CB1 and CB2.
While you may not be interested in the science behind this topic, it’s important to understand exactly what happens when these receptors bind. The discovery of CB1 and CB2 prompted scientists to begin searching for cannabinoid-like chemicals which were floating around in the body. These chemicals would naturally bind to the receptors. The question then becomes, “Why would the human body produce these receptors if there were no naturally occurring cannabinoids to bind to them?”
This brought forth a discovery called Anandamide. This breakthrough proved that Anandamide acts on both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Anandamide is important because the effects occur in the central or peripheral nervous system.
Here is a quote we found about Anandamide:
Anandamide has been shown to impair working memory in rats. Studies are under way to explore what role anandamide plays in human behavior, such as eating and sleep patterns, and pain relief. ~Wikipedia
Not only are you discovering a brand new botanical for your body, (you are also discovering a bodily breakthrough that most people use consistently) for their improved health and wellness. The major reason for this is through the use of CB1, CB2, and the Anandamide working furiously in the background.
There is a hypothesis that says your problems could lie at the feet of the endocannabinoid system. This is known as the Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency hypothesis. In a sense, this means if your endocannabinoid system is working properly, your body maintains a constant state of wellness. However, if there is a problem, it could be because your ECS is out of balance. It is believed that CBD oil can create the balance that is needed within your body for continued wellness.
Your body is an amazing machine. When you get a cut, does it not heal? When you get a cold, do you not get better? Your body is designed to take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’. However, some health choices we make prohibit the body from continued consistency in our health and wellness. It’s important to understand natural botanicals can be used to maintain balance. CBD oil, perhaps, is that essential addition to your day.
