Researchs are coming everyday confirming the benefits of CBD and its potencials. CBD-infused products are becoming mainstream: from supplements like chocolates and lotions.
This is exciting but confusing for many as well. Endopure is responsible for lots of well-made new products out there. To help clear the the confusion let’s start with some basics:
Cannabidiol, in short “CBD,” is a compound that comes from the Cannabis SativaL. plant. There are a lot of misconceptions about cannabis but many people don’t understand that both marijuana and hemp are plants that are part of the Cannabis plant species and both contain compounds called “cannabinoids.” Medical and recreational marijuana legalization has been approved by voters and legislatures of 29 states across the US. The legalization efforts are the reason why so many people are talking about cannabis these days. We are glad that people are finally paying attention to the researches that shows the huge health benefits of this amazing plant.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
CBD is similar to a compound that our bodies produce naturally, and from birth, called endocannabinoids. If you speakPortuguese, we produce a video on this subject to explain you. You can watch it here.
Cannabinoids aren’t just found in the cannabis plant, they’re also naturally occurring in nature but they are the most potent in cannabis.
When we consume cannabinoids, they stimulate the endocannabinoid system, a system of receptors throughout our central nervous system and almost every organ of our bodies (our skin, digestive tracts, etc.). Cannabinoids are the keys that unlock these receptors and this system is incredibly important to our health because they can help with our immune systems, protect our brains, help us manage stress and even keep our bodies in balance (“homeostasis”).
We like to think of CBD like a vitamin.For example, we’re born with calcium in our bones and as we age, our natural reserves of calcium deplete. Much in the same way that we’re encouraged to start taking calcium supplements to keep our bones strong, we also need to supplement our natural reserves of CBD as we get older to help keep our bodies in balance.
WHAT CAN YOU USE CBD FOR?
As with any supplement, the effects(and the amount you need to experience those effects) can vary based on your own body chemistry, but here are some of the researched effects of CBD:
+ analgesic/pain relief+ anti-inflammatory
+ and more...
WHY CAN WOMEN IN PARTICULAR BENEFIT FROM CBD?
Here are some of the researched effects of CBD that can help women with the issues distracting us from living our fullest lives:
PMS: Hormonal imbalance is one of the reasons why many of us experience a variety of unpleasant sensations during that time of the month. CBD, and even hempseed oil in general, contains essential fatty acids that can help get our hormones back into balance. Sagely Naturals’ Relief & Recovery Cream contains essential peppermint oil and menthol, so it can be applied directly onto your abdomen to get an instant feeling of cooling relief.
Headaches: Headaches can, of course, occur when we’re not taking the best care of ourselves (i.e. we’re dehydrated or hungover), but the more common cause of headaches is when we have over-activity or problems associated with our blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. CBD can desensitize pain receptors at the nerve level, bringing relief to that throbbing pain that’s keeping you from going about your day.
Stress: As mentioned above, cannabinoid receptors can be found in the parts of the brain that regulate stress, fear and our moods. Maintaining a healthy endocannabinoid system through regular consumption of CBD can result in improved resilience to stress and reduce existing feelings of anxiety and stress.
Pain: Pain (whether it’s because your last spinning class really did you inor you’re dealing with something more chronic) affects one in threeAmericans. Inflammationis often at the root cause of pain and since CBD is a known anti-inflammatory and analgesic, it can assuage a broad range of pain symptoms. Sagely Naturals’ CBD + Turmeric Capsules can be taken daily to combat inflammation and discomfort before it even begins.
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO TAKE CBD?
There are many ways you can consume CBD and while the form is partly a matter of personal preference, it’s important to understand that our bodies process and absorb CBD differently depending on how we consume it. The technical term for this concept of absorption is “bioavailability.” The more bioavailable a substance is, the more easily our bodies are able to absorb it. We are a big fun of sublingual because is the best way to absorb the CBD, although there are people that uses either oral, inhalation or/and topical.
With more and more research coming out about the health benefits of the cannabis plant, it’s an amazing time to add CBD to your health and wellness routine!
