Balance is the key to life. The balance between work and home, the balance between spending one’s time for family or finding time for one’s self, most importantly the balance between mind and body. Whether you struggle with sleep issues, chronic pain, or anxiety, gaining balance in your body can help you feel better and live your best life.
What does it mean to be balanced? Balance or homeostasis [hō′mē-ō-stā′sĭs] is “The tendency of an organism or cell to regulate its internal conditions, such as the chemical composition of its body fluids, so as to maintain health and functioning, regardless of outside conditions.”
Your body is always trying to regulate itself. It craves good food, plenty of water, good sleep and healthy relationships. Missing any one of these can cause your body to get out of balance and add inflammation.
Inflammation is a leading cause of many illnesses and can put you at risk for heart disease, cancer, depression, anxiety, migraines, etc… Finding the balance in your every day is the fundamental key to avoiding inflammation in your body and living a healthy life
Your body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system produces cannabinoids that help your body to achieve balance and homeostasis.
The ECS is vital in creating homeostasis in your body and is responsible for counteracting many stressors in your life. In fact, the total number of endocannabinoid receptors in the body is believed to be greater than all other neuromodulatory receptors found in the body combined, including receptors for the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.
Maintaining a healthy endocannabinoid system is key to alleviating inflammation, anxiety, pain and restoring balance in your life. While we certainly believe diet, good sleep patterns, and exercise plays a huge role in your everyday health sometimes you need extra support. You may be saying, “I would love to sleep better” or “I’m in chronic pain and it’s too hard to exercise.” This is where CBD comes in.
The ECS has many receptors all over the body and when you introduce certain molecules to the system they will bind themselves to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors interact with cannabinoids very similarly, but in fact look differently and support different areas of the body. The CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain and nervous system, while the CB2 receptors can be found in the immune and gastrointestinal systems. Scientists are researching and discovering ways in which natural and holistic options can help communicate with the receptors. The CB1 and CB2 receptors are already functioning in the body, but when exposed to CBD the receptors come alive. These receptors start working at a higher level, which causes so many great benefits for your body. That’s why CBD helps alleviate so many issues you may be experiencing. CBD is the support your ECS needs to help balance sleep patterns, calm anxiety, reduce inflammation and more!
