CBD performs many actions when it is consumed but by far the most important would be its functions in our Endocannabinoid System also referred to as the ECS. All mammals of which humans are on top of that list have an Endocannabinoid System to ensure phytocannabinoids of which CBD stands out acts to our benefit. The ECS in our body is what controls our appetite, sensations of pain that we would feel, mood changes, and also helps us to remember things or what we call memory.
There are other phytocannabinoids but it is Cannabidiol or CBD that leads the way and is being so vigorously being promoted by the medical fraternity and all those who support it. CBD is able to restrict the enzyme Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase (FAAH). Our bodies also produce cannabiboids which we refer to as endocannabinoids and the ECS is used to support all these from passing through our bodies. These phytocannabinoids that are produced by our body are water soluble unlike the CBD that we derive from the cannabis plant which is in the form of oil. If we could overcome this issue we could use the CBD we find in cannabis more effectively.
The enzyme FAAH induces sleep and if the endocannabinoids in our body does not control it we may be sleeping more hours than we should. This is just one example and like that there are many that FAAH helps in and with CBD we could be more energetic and display a more robust lifestyle. FAAH has other enzymes in its family which are needed to our bodies and helps in many of our activities especially relevant to our brains.
The endocannabiboids that are in our bodies is the bridge between our body and the brain. CBD could help in treating many of the issues which would be directly related to our brains. The right dosage of CBD could help us immensely by controlling pain for instance and also increase our levels of memory. Each of these has receptors in our body which control these specific activities and the endocannabinoids would ensure that they function at optimum levels. There are receptors attached to our ECS distributed all over our body. They are all connected to our brain and control specific functions in our body. When we consume CBD it helps to activate these receptors which would then function at optimum efficiency. It is this that makes CBD such a powerful treatment for many of the sicknesses that we would encounter especially those that are linked to our brain.
It is when the phytocannabinoids that are produced in our body is insufficient that we have various sicknesses that are related to the brain, Depression could be another which is due to an issue with the receptor for that particular activity and when doses of CBD oil is administered it could be effectively treated.
The enzyme FAAH also breaks down the endogenous cannabinoid Anandamide which is bound to the CB1 receptor in our Endocannabinoid System. It is the same CB1 receptor that Tetrahyrocannabinol or THC also binds to. Hence Anadamide is often referred to as the natural THC in our body. It is the phytocannabinoid Cannabidiol or CBD that controls it without the THC getting out of control.
Though THC has many negative and adverse effects when introduced into our bodies and could cause hallucinations, increase anxiety, increase heart beat and other psychoactive reactions Anandamide does better, Anandamide would help in increasing memory, create a good mood, improve the functions of the brain and control pain among many other positive reactions.
When the enzyme FAAH breaks down Anandamide and with CBD controlling the former it is known that the latter, better serves our body. Hence it is seen that in effect it is CBD oil that maintains a better levels of production of the Anandamide in our body. CBD also has the ability to bind to both the CB1 and the CB2 receptors though weakly and by doing so is able to bring both to increase the performance in our body.
CBD would also control other enzymes which are prevalent in our bodies which if either increased or decreased could cause various issues. The function where CBD controls FAAH is very important as it is known after many research studies that increased anxiety could be reduced when the latter is controlled. Whilst the enzyme FAAH may have many benefits it is also necessary to control its activity. There are many phytocannabinoids in our body that are able to do so but it is when they are produced less that the problems arise. By administering CBD the ECS could be helped in its endeavors to maintain optimum functions through the receptors that are distributed throughout our body.
Apart from these functions the CBD has the ability to perform many other functions outside the purview of the ECS and improve on our health. It is this that has created a universal interest in CBD oil and has been the talk around the medical fraternity and all those who are interested in improving the health and also treating those patients who may be affected with many sicknesses.
Regular intake of CBD oil in the right dosage would ensure a more healthy and robust lifestyle. As it is known at present that most of the CBD that we consume is rejected it is necessary to take a few drops which is administered under the tongue. Once we have the ability to find a way to completely dissolve CBD in water then the right dosage could be administered. The goodness of CBD is slowly coming into the limelight and there have been many very controversial cases that have been reported as in some countries cannabis is still a taboo subject. Once the strict legislations are set aside there could be a very high demand for CBD worldwide and it should be known that it does not have any psychoactive properties.
Hence there should be a concerted effort from everyone associated with the development of CBD oil to ensure that it is available to all to treat the various sicknesses it is capable of treating successfully. The relevant authorities all over the world could always monitor the CBD sold in the market and if found to be beyond set parameters the necessary action taken. The present state of affairs is like “cutting the nose to spite the face”.
