What is CBD oil?
A few years ago a remarkable thing happened when CBD oil became legal in all 50 states in America and more recently greater news, CBD oil is legal in the UK. CBD oil is now legal to use as a nutritional supplement in the UK. Since it’s legalisation, the market for cannabis oil has exploded with interest. Truly, CBD is not just any nutritional supplement. This video and article describe the intense scientific research that is going on all over the world on the benefits of CBD, or Cannabidiol, and why it is so important for human physiology.
How does CBD work?
We are going to travel into our own physiology. Right into the central nervous system. We are going to see at the level of individual cells that the cell surface is covered with receptors. Some of these receptors are for CBD.
When CBD binds to a receptor it sends a message directly into the cell, This travels all the way down into the nucleus of the cell and in to our chromosomes. If the chromosome were to unwind we would seethe DNA that contains the codes for everything that our body does and is. Like software that runs our physiology.
Genes are the codes for every protein that our bodies make. Including all the signaling molecules that run our physiology. Such as our neurotransmitters that run our nervous system. Our hormones that run our endocrine system and our cytokines that run our immune system.
So you can see that throughout our bodies we have receptors designed specifically to bind with CBD. Which has its effect on the nucleus of our cells where proteins are being made. Cannabidiol modulates the transcription of over 1100 genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system and throughout our immune system. Restoring homeostasis to both our immune and central nervous systems.
What are the benefits of CBD?
Bottom line… One of the benefits of cannabidiol is that it causes a cascade of Homeostasis through our entire central nervous system and our entire immune system. Why is this happening? As I mentioned before we have receptors in our body for CBD. This is called the endo-cannabinoid system. It was discovered in the 1990’s by Dr. Rafael Mechoulan from the Hebrew University in Israel. So the endo-cannabinoid system is a network of cells throughout our body that have receptors for CBD.
In fact, there are more receptors for CBD in our body than any other kind of receptor. So the endo-cannabinoid system is truly the largest network of its kind throughout our entire physiology. Among other things Dr. Mechoulam also discovered that we make our own cannabinoids in or body. They are Anandamide and 2AG. Natural cannabinoids that our bodies make and bind to our CBD receptors.
If your immune system is inflamed you might be suffering from autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflamed bowel disease, lupus and thyroid. Or fibromyalgia or even multiple sclerosis. And you skin, psoriasis and eczema and all sorts of other chronic infections. Do you realize that many of things didn’t even exist 100 or 150 years ago.
Incidences of these sorts of diseases is growing throughout the last century. Now lets take a look at your central nervous system. If it is inflamed what types of things might you be suffering from? Brain fog, migraines, epilepsy, anxiety and PTSD, ADD, ADHD, autism and insomnia. Again, 100 or 150 years ago these kinds of symptoms, these kind of diseases were rare. CBD could provide us with tremendous healing, tremendous relief, right through our own natural endo-cannabinoid system that brings homeostasis both to the immune system and to the central nervous system. In conclusion, what have we learned from this conversation? That health is achieved through physiological homeostasis right through our natural endo-cannabinoid systems. Therefore, whilst CBD at the moment is not a direct cure for any one ailment, it is very clear that CBD is an indispensable catalyst for optimal health. We hope to see a future where the ongoing research brings this miracle of Nature to the forefront of medical science, so it can be utilised to it’s full potential.
