The first thing to know about CBD oil is it doesn’t get you high. It just gets you healthy. Here is my personal story about a difficulty I went through that was solved by the use of CBD oil.

I had a knee injury from sports. It was taking way too long to heal. A friend of mine was sympathetic and gave me some Whole Hemp Oil capsules from the Veritas Farms. Not many, just a sample.

After only four days I found I was running upstairs, something I couldn’t so because of the pain for quite some time. Now at the age of 53 I’m back to jogging!

Let’s get down to the bones of it. This may be the secret of why it is so powerful. Our bodies, just like many animals, have cannabinoid receptors. We have an endocannabinoid system throughout our bodies that process and utilize cannabinoids, the compounds of hemp oil.

This endocannabinoid system, abbreviated ECS, is best described as a balancing system. There is no part of the body that it does not help regulate and rebalance. Think of the immune system, the gastrointestinal system, the nervous system. These all get help from the ECS, when it’s activated, to make you healthier. You achieve a higher state of wellness through the rebalancing of these important systems.

CBD oil is widely known for the benefit of elevating moods. But did you know that it can also improve memory. I personally know many people in the boomer generation who appreciate this and use CBD oil.

Recent research has shown that CBD oil, when combined with certain herbs, can bring out the cannabinoid latency that they already have. For example, when combined with chamomile helps people with chronic, persistent sleep problems.

It looks like it even helps with the premier undiagnosed problem besetting people today, inflammation. Every form of “itis” is an inflammation. CBD oil counteracts inflammation, just as curcumin does. There is no doubt about it. Ads research continues we will find new, positive uses and effectiveness for CBD oil.

Some of the more extreme conditions CBD oil is being used for include: epilepsy, Crone’s PSTD. irritable bowel syndrome, and mental health challenges. At this point there are no known drug interactions, and no problems of overdosing.

What theory tells us why CBD Oil has these ameliorating qualities? It’s the theory of homeostasis. This theory holds that the body is self-regulating. It is constantly shifting to keep balanced and healthy. It keeps balancing the internal condition of the body vis a vis the outside environment. One major helpful factor to keep this balance is the endocannabinoid system, ECS.

The ECS is one of the largest neuro-transmitters in the human body. Discovered by scientists in the early 1990’s, it is made up of a network of receptors on cells throughout our brain, central nervous system, organs and  glands. This receptor network regulates and affects a variety of processes including sleeping, relaxation, cognition, and recovery from stress.

While our body does not create its own vitamin C, it doe create some endocannabinoids. If we are deficient in the required amounts of endocannabinoids, we may experience negative effects, stress, discomfort, and even pain.

Some plants produce phyto-cannabinoids, (plant based compounds), that can work to offset the deficiency. The richest source of these are the plants in the cannabis family. Each kind of cannabis has a different profile of compounds. Some do not even have THC, the compound that creates the high feeling. These cannabinoids scientifically extracted from the appropriate cannabis plants are the best solution for maintaining homeostasis.

I whole heartedly recommend the cannabinoid oils produced by Veritas Farms. I have been to their facility and chatted with the owners of the company. Veritas Farms Whole Hemp Oil interacvtsd favorably with the endocannabinoid system stimulating it to ensure our body is in a state of happy homeostasis.
