I would like to talk to you about clinical endocannabinoid deficiency syndrome, or CEDS.
“What the heck is that???”, you ask?
Just like the cardiovascular system, just like the gastrointestinal system, just like the nervous system, we also have an endocannabinoid system.
It’s a system that runs throughout our entire body. It consists of chemical enzymes, endocannabinoid chemical signals, and receptor sites. The enzymes work to both create and break down endocannabinoid chemicals. Cannabinoids are the chemical key that’s meant to fit the lock of these endocannabinoid receptor sites on our cells. When this key opens the lock it increases and improves our cells’ ability to function correctly and brings homeostasis or balance to our cells and our body. Cannabinoids are highly anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and work on our opioid receptors to help reduce pain as well. Cannabinoids are called endocannabinoids when they are produced by our own body. Cannabinoids found in plants that can be used as supplements are called phytocannabinoids.
Normally our body’s produce their own endocannabinoids. However, given the toxic environment we live in, research shows that over time we do not produce enough endocannabinoids to produce the homeostasis that we need. A lot of that has to do with the way we live our lives.
This is where supplementing with phytocannabinoids comes into play. I am not speaking about marijuana, the cannabis plant with high levels of THC, but rather, I am discussing an industrial hemp plant. Industrial hemp and marijuana may both be in the cannabis family but they are entirely different plants. Industrial hemp grows very tall (20 ft high sometimes) with a long and fibrous stalk, has a short life cycle, and has very little THC. I am not discussing marijuanna which is short and bushy and bred for high THC levels that create a high. What I am speaking of is CBD from industrial hemp which has high levels of many of the other beneficial phytocannabinoids that do not create the high many do not want. It is not addictive. I am speaking of the legal non psychoactive form of CBD that is federally legal, legal in all 50 states, and legal in over 30 countries at the time of this post.
Society has conditioned us to feel weird about using these plants, but we shouldn’t feel this way. The chemical science is very clear that this is a plant that can be very helpful for our health and wellness. I can say from personal experience that it’s changed my life. There is good research showing its benefits for those with autoimmune disease, pain, inflammatory issues, brain injury, neurologic conditions and more.
If you’re someone who struggles with pain, immune issues, or inflammation, please reach out to me. Let’s talk about it and I can help you understand all the benefits that it might offer you.
