CBD seems to be everywhere we turn these days, new and creative products popping up, variations of administering being spoken about in daily conversations, and if you haven’t been keeping up with the Jones’s as the saying goes, then lucky for you you’ve stumbled across this article. We will discuss CBD, its benefits, and how it goes hand in hand with our ‘inner workings.’
What you do need to know as we delve into the topic is what is CBD and where does it come from? We have been blessed on this planet by the one and only Mother Nature who allows this plant and flower, known as Hemp (see more here https://thesleepdoctor.com/2017/08/10/understanding-cbd/ ) to grow naturally.
When harvested using safe extraction methods such as CO2 which rules out the risk of solvents being left behind in the final product, which happens when expedited processes that use butane or propane tend to do, you can be sure to know you have a product that is ‘full-spectrum’ meaning traces of THC are 0.3% and less.
Why do we want as little THC as possible? Well, as much as it is natural and part of the cannabis plant, it is the black sheep of the family when it comes to benefits. It is responsible for the hallucinogenic reactions and psychoactive side effects which gives you the ‘high’ feeling when you put it into your system.
The endocannabinoid system.
This is quite a mouthful of a word and can be daunting when heard for the first time if you are like me who immediately gets a blank stare when people start throwing around medical and ‘organic’ medicine jargon then read this link for quick beginners guide to knowing what it is and essentially how it operates.
In simple terms the endocannabinoid system is recognized as the homeostatic regulator of the bodily functions, helping manage and essentially even out all processes so that they all work in harmony together. If one system decides to go rogue we see the effects usually physically, either chronic pains or aches, stiffness, and even sleep disorders which is not a good look.
If you have done some research into this you begin to realize things can get confusing quite quickly, this enzyme binds with that molecule, or that protein is inhibited by this reaction, it is a lot to take in.
TRPV1 receptors which are the ‘gatekeepers’ in regulating pain, inflammation, and temperature in the body while we partake in our everyday lives, are receptors that are activated through CBD indirectly binding with the CB1 and CB2 naturally produced cannabinoids in the body.
Because the body already produces cannabinoids it has been shown that the components of CBD enhance and ‘boost’ this production thus resulting in a boatload of benefits without the need for chemical-based, and toxin-coated medicines. You can take care of your ‘temple’ as it were in a non-invasive manner.
If it means being natural and organic and on top of it affordable, I’m all for it. We all know how expensive ‘bio’ products can be, and then they aren’t only packed with additives and ingredients you can’t pronounce the names of, but chemicals to preserve them for years to come.
Take your time if you are new to the CBD experience, doing your homework will benefit you in the long run by knowing what to look for and what works according to success stories, of which there are plenty.

All in all, as an avid and regular CBD user I can confirm personally that CBD helps my body work to its full and optimal potential, I haven’t felt this good in years, and when you feel good you look good, my husband isn’t complaining so that’s a bonus without all the health advantages, am I right ladies?
You know how the old saying goes, ‘don’t knock it till you try it,’ and this is my advice when to comes to CBD. I rave about it to everyone I meet and have yet to hear about a bad experience, life is short, live an adventure.
