Cannabidiol: succeeding where conventional medicine fails?

Although the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has been around for thousands of years, scientists only discovered it in the ’80s. The Endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating sleeping and waking cycles but also mood, anxiety and stress metabolism. You can also include in this, inflammation and pain. It’s an important system playing an integral part in the regulation, maintenance and balancing of your health. It is in our immune system and nervous system, in fact every organ….
Endocannabinoids are naturally found in the body but others are found in plants like hemp or cannabis which are called phytocannabinoids. These cannabinoids bind to the receptor site including CB1 and CB2. When they bind they release neurotransmitters which communicate with glands, cells, organs and tissue which is important to maintain optimal health.
As part of your daily ‘wellness’ routine, the use of Cannabidiol oil may offer some relief from chronic joint and muscle pain, just as Ginger root is also well known for its anti inflammatory properties, being loaded with antioxidants and cannabinoids.
Cannabidiol (CBD) does not contain any THC which is the psychoactive content of the marijuana plant. Cannabidiol is produced from the Cannabis Sativa plant which is a cousin of the marijuana plant, more commonly known as cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is not psychoactive which means it doesn’t give you a ‘high’ and no negative effects have been documented i.e. you can’t overdose on CBD! Hemp seed oil, olive oil or coconut oil are often used as carrier oils for CBD and as these oils are processed to a very high standard this method improves the efficiency of the delivery of the CBD to your body, thus improving your health faster.
