My goal here at cannabusa is for me and my furry friend over here, to bring to you not only what we’ve learned, but products that can potentially help you and your furry friend’s endocannabinoid system. Both animals and humans have an endocannabinoid system. I always knew we were so much alike!
I guess I need to start this off by trying to explain what our endocannabinoid system is, and the potential benefits of cannabidoil related to that system in our bodies…and what all that means in layman’s terms. Also how our “homeostasis”, another thing I will attempt to explain in layman’s terms, can potentially be achieved from using Cannabidoil.
The Endocannabinoid System Is a system within all of us, including our furry friends again, that is physiological, and is constantly trying to maintain balance at the cellular level. This system is present throughout our entire body including our tissue, organs, and brain. Our bodies and cells actually have cannabinoid receptors, which are a class of cell membrane receptors in the G protein-coupled receptor super family. Sometimes our bodies will get off balance and homeostasis is disrupted. Homeostasis basically is the maintenance of a stable internal environment, despite what happens outside of the body. Our bodies have numerous feedback systems which can be a feeling that everything is just right. Maintaining balance is critical to our survival and helps our bodies maintain optimal performance. For example our bodies don’t like to be too hot or too cold, or our blood sugar levels can’t be too high or too low, and as a result we don’t feel just right. So I hope my brief dissertation here gives you some insight into that system, and I hope I got it right, hence the links!
Look, I don’t know, and I don’t claim to know the true health benefits of cannabis or cannabidoil as it relates to our endocannabinoid system. What I do know, is what I have experienced and learned on a daily basis from use of the product and personal research. National Geographic’s June 2015, “WEED: The New Science of Marijuana”, was what opened my eyes to this amazing plant. I encourage everyone to read it. It’s truly awe inspiring and an awakening of the true potential and health benefits of the oil derived from this plant. Also I would recommend watching Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s series WEED on YouTube.. I personally feel better physically, have a better state of mind, an overall calmness, and a feeling of well-being from using cannabidoil products. I find it fascinating and amazing that an oil derived from a plant can potentially help relieve pain, anxiety, stress, and our over all well-being! Cheers!
