CBD LIFESTYLE

CBD for Your Health and Happiness.


Health and wellness are equated with high quality of life. CBD (Cannabidiol), extracted from hemp or cannabis plants, is emerging for its wide range of therapeutic benefits. Promising results from research using CBD suggest it may be an effective treatment for many serious diseases in both animals and humans, as well as an overall health protector.

Our bodies naturally produce neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids, with cannabinoid receptors for these transmitters throughout our brain, immune system and peripheral nervous system. Pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown CBD to have a range of therapeutic effects, including anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti- inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety properties. Other literature suggests that CBD has a role in regulating fertility, pregnancy, appetite, pain, mood, and memory, and in mediating the psychoactive effects of THC in cannabis.

Scientists identified the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a molecular signaling system within the body, involved in regulating a broad range of biological functions. The primary goal of the ECS is to maintain a stable environment, or create homeostasis within the body. Ingestion or inhalation of plant-derived CBD (phytocannabinoids) supplements a deficiency in the body’s natural synthesis of endocannabinoids.

There are a number of reasons why our body may not synthesize enough endocannabinoids, or produce enough cannabinoid receptors. Many enzymes break down cannabinoids, or foods and medications may decrease ECS signaling calling for production. Phytocannabinoids contained in hemp and cannabis plants can be used to supplement the deficiency in the body. The research supports stimulating and supporting the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to obtain relief from a range of illnesses and health conditions, and live your fullest life.

Edibles, vaping oil or plant flower and bud, and tinctures are examples of common mediums for ingesting or inhaling CBD oil for therapeutic purpose. Effects are very individual from ingesting or inhaling CBD. Dosing is another common variable. Legalization of the industry is set to provide assured high quality, controlled, well labeled product as the essential component to use in the medium of your choice to optimize your health benefits.
