The discovery of the “endocannabinoid system” in our bodies has significantly advanced our understanding of health and disease. It has major implications for nearly every area of medical science.
This system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, stress, hunger and even how we experience pain.
See… the membranes of the cells in our brain and on all of our organs have thousands of “cannabinoid receptors” that either turn on or turn off cellular function. CBD and THC molecules interact with these receptors in a variety of different ways to either stimulate or relax a certain function. So.. What happens if this endocannabinoid system doesn’t function properly? In a word, disease.
The latest science has shown that the endocannabinoid system is dysregulated in nearly all pathological (disease) conditions. So, it stands to reason that “regulating the endocannabinoid system activity may have therapeutic potential in almost all disease processes.”
The working theory is that by stimulating or enhancing the endocannabinoid system with cannabinoids like CBD and THC, it may slow down or in some cases even stop disease progression. How cool is that !
Did you know that the brain has 1000 times more cannabinoid receptors than pain receptors… Ask yourself why are they there ? Answer – we were designed to consume cannabis !!!
