CBD and our Own Body’s Receptor’s
Have you ever looked at a leaf, or maps of rivers and their tributaries, and thought they looked similar to the veins and arteries that exist within us? We, the human race, are relatively new on earth compared to the rest of the natural world. Now with the help of modern science, we are starting to see the correlation and the connections between us and other living organisms. This is especially true for CBD and our own Body’s receptors.
It has been discovered that human beings have naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors in our body and that CBD, a plant extract, interacts with them. The human body’s special receptors are designed in such a way as to bind with CBD compounds extracted from plants. CBDand our own Body’s receptors act as locks and keys in a variety of beneficial ways, most notably with the immune system.
All disease (a word which, when broken apart can be seen as dis-ease, a state of being uneasy within your own body and or mind) affects the immune system and can lead to the body being susceptible to infections and viruses. By harnessing and enabling the beneficial properties of the hemp plant in the form of CBD oil, we can either start to revert these imbalances in the body or improve our immune system in order to ward off sickness altogether.
How Hemp Ties In With CBD
Hemp, a cannabis crop the federal government allowed individual states to legalize in the 2014 farm bill and hemp oil derived CBD is legal in all 50 states. It does not cause a high, is non-addictive, and can be naturally incorporated into your current health regimen. CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid in the hemp plant and is the reason we, along with many other manufacturers, source it from the industrial hemp plant.
Our relationship with the hemp plant has been difficult in recent history. However, in times gone by, even at the birth of this United States of America, it has been a useful and ubiquitous substance. Many people would be shocked to know that the US Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper and that the growth of hemp was responsible for a successful industry in the American colonies before they unified and stood separate from Great Britain. Not only paper but also ropes and sails on ships, clothes and fuel and any other use of fiber that was needed. The oil of the hemp plant was used in medicine and as a healing aid back when we didn’t even know that it was the CBD in this oil that had such healing and beneficial properties.
There were many factors that made us stray from the plant and its benefits, namely cotton and the rise in synthetic medicines and their greedy manufacturers, but people are starting to realize they have a choice to use a natural healing supplement to fight a range of ailments which today are being treated with highly-addictive mainstream medications: depression, anxiety, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, epilepsy, inflammation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, menstrual pain, migraines, PTSD, amongst others.
