In spite of phar-ma lobbyists influencing govt in working to keep it from us, we have made strides in C-B-D and supporting our Endo-canna-bin-oid systems. Water based (tincture) has superior absorption for more noticeable effect & support 🙂Click To TweetWhat body system has been (sadly) overlooked by our health system?
A system so important it interacts in the body when dealing with issues such as Thyroid, Leaky Gut, anxiety, pain, Fibromyalgia, MS, epilepsy, skin, heart….?
It’s something we all have (but something most likely not discussed at your doctors office).
It’s our Endocannabinoid system (ECS).
This is a system that the medical schools pretty much bypassed in their training of our doctors. In fact, it’s not been included in doctor’s training as one of our vital body systems in the way our other body systems–circulatory, endocrine, digestive etc are listed. Thus, if the ECS wasn’t even considered a major body system, surely a constituent like CBD–that supports it–wasn’t considered useful.
Until very recently, CBD was not even legal. Why? Because marijuana (not the same as CBD but our government classification of it missed that teeny, tiny detail) was illegal and considered only good for a “high”. Because CBD (no “high” involved) gets grouped with marijuana in our legislators rulings (due to pharma’s lobbyists intentions), CBD has gotten banned for literally decades when it should be available to all of us.
So…it’s unlikely your doctor will recommend it. Not until the pharmaceutical companies (already happening) introduce an altered, synthetic version (its the only way they can patent it) that will never work with the body like the natural substance–hence, the list of side effects on the inserts.
Fortunately, our laws have eased a bit so we now have access to the supportive benefits of CBD!
CBD (cannabinoid) constituents are not the same as marijuana (that has THC that gives you a “high”). CBD has no THC–or–an extremely tiny amount in some formulas–therefore…. NO high….
Both CBD and THC come from the Cannabis plant with some varieties, such as hemp, being low in THC while being high in CBD. Other varieties are high in THC but low in CBD. The hemp plant is the one used in most CBD’s on the market due to its excellent constituents of low THC–high CBD.
Cannabinoid (CBD) has huge potential in supporting the human body…how?
The cannabinoid (CBD) constituents are the “key that fits the lock” for what the Endocannabinoid system receptors want and need. CBD gives support to our ENDOcannabinoid system (ECS) = a major body system that rivals in importance as much as our digestive or nervous or endocrine or ANY of the body systems. And it does rival…because cannabinoid receptors are not only plentiful on our skin, but throughout every body system we have. Support with CBD constituents just makes sense.
CBD’s properties are key in supporting body systems to aid in easing inflammation. Inflammation is a key factor in almost every health issue in your body.
There are many causes and contributors to our health issues but there’s one thing you can take to the bank: inflammation contributes to–and aggravates–all health conditions. Where that inflammation will manifest into a health condition will depend on what is your most susceptible area.
Why WOULDN’T we want to support our CBD receptors?
Answer: we should support our CBD receptors–absolutely!
A person might think there’s no way one body system like our Endocannabinoid system can support the body in as many ways as our endocannabinoid system does. Yet it does. When we support the ECS, we can support every single body system. Supporting our ECS with a high quality CBD, in conjunction with good diet, avoiding chemicals and avoiding stress…might be just the thing your body craves.
????We can never sustain homeostasis if we don’t eat well and avoid chemicals AND support our body with nature’s constituents.
When we incorporate CBD (cannibinoid) in our health protocol, we influence the receptors THROUGHOUT the body to all body systems in a way that ultimately brings a “sigh of relief” to receptors in areas of the body and brain needing support. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout your body including your gut lining, Endocrine system (think hormones)….your thyroid, brain, muscles, nerves, bones, ovaries liver, kidneys, membranes, tissues…virtually every area of your body.
Endocannabinoid receptors –powerful for healthy aging and skin health
Skin support….who wouldn’t want that??? As a post menopausal woman in her 60’s, I’ll take all the healthy skin support I can! As another great benefit, CBD for support of a healthy endocannabinoid system benefits our skin that is loaded with CBD receptors linked to your Endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system, as the linked study I’m including shows, is involved in our neurol-immuno-endocrine functions for involvement in hormones, immune system AND skin. Our ECS is involved in skin cell death, acne, allergic dermatitis, itch, psoriasis, hair growth disorders and cancer: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2757311/
Although using some products topically might be helpful, they likely cannot do great changes alone. When struggling with a health issue, it ramps up our chance of improvement by having the cooperation of the internal body system linked to that particular skin cell/receptor as well. Hence…CBD is perfect for this because, not only can you apply it topically to the area to support the surface areas, but you can also reach and influence the Endocannabinoid system within. For supporting healthy skin, I like to boost this power by applying both topically and doing my usual “dropper of CBD in the mouth” twice per day.
If you are an essential oils user, I have found both Frankincense and Geranium (healthy skin cell regeneration), to be a great addition to my skin regimen of CBD and essential oils. Just be darned sure if you choose to add these, that your essential oil is chemical free
Is CBD tincture good as a daily health supplement or only for when we need added support?
CBD absolutely can be used as part of your daily routine as a supplement to support a healthy body. CBD with Curcumin as we have in BioReigns Tincture, can be part of a health maintenance plan. For myself, I use it daily because, I like feeling good and knowing I’m offering the CBD receptors some very superb constituents through CBD. For me, everything (!) regarding my health comes down to common sense. And CBD–that is loaded with constituents to feed and soothe our massive Endocannabinoid system–a system that interactions with every other body system– just makes sense. :-)!*
CBD is safe with many supplements and medications. But, like any new supplement, I recommend discussing your use of CBD with your health provider–especially if you are on blood thinners.
***The testimonies and benefits are far and wide for BioReigns CBD and its amazing benefits.***
My favorite CBD is BioReigns brand. I choose it because it has super important properties:
**⚡Water based rather than oil based. This rare feature allows for the CBD to be readily absorbed thru our water based gland & organ (brain, gut etc) lining vs oil based CBD’s
**⚡Includes Curcumin (Turmerics powerful anti-inflammatory constituent) in combination with the CBD and is also water based for superior absorption.
**⚡Full Spectrum CBD with Curcumin (white cap bottle) full plant CBD constituents–may have THC but will be under the minimal amount of .03% allowed by law.
**⚡Broad Spectrum CBD with Curcumin (black cap bottles)–CBD Isolate–for those who have drug testing in their employment for zero risk of positive drug tests.
**⚡Sourced from organically grown Hemp.
How do we use it?
Normally one dropper in the mouth to absorb into the highly absorbable mouth membranes to be distributed into the bloodstream and throughout the body.
BioReigns CBD tincture with Curcumin is the brand I use as part of my wellness plan. This Brand carries everything from childrens products (Organic gummies with CBD and Vitamins/Amino Acids etc), Soothe and relieve sore joints/muscles creams & lotions, CBD tincture to boost our immune system support (BioDefense), Sleep support (CBDzzz), Organic gummies for brain AND skin support (includes collagen, vitamins, amino acids) for adults and children, Pet CBD and weight support (Keto drink mix) with (BioLean Tincture). I recommend starting with 1/2 dropper to ease into its soothing support. Increase the amount used as your body adapts and if you feel you need more support.
Good food, eliminating chemicals and supporting the body with key constituents….THIS is called working with the human body. Your body–and your brain–will thank you :-)!
