Using CBD to support a robust Immune System.
Our Endocannabinoid Receptor System (ECS) is the signaling mechanism alerting and directing our immune system when our body is out of homeostasis or worse. Cannabinoids and Endocannabinoids are the only molecules that activate the ECS. Discovered in the 1990s, science has shown the direct relationship ECS has with our immune system and immune glands.
Along with hygiene, having a healthy Immune System, both Innate and Acquired, is the best defense for viral attacks. The ECS is expressed throughout our bodies, including our Immune Systems and Glands. Bone marrow and Thymus, in children, are the primary immune glands. Secondary glands include tonsils, lymph nodes, spleen, etc.
Homeostasis is the concept that most biological systems are actively regulated to maintain healthy conditions within a narrow range. Our bodies’ have a natural desire for health balance. The ECS is the system that monitors this balance and initiates help.
Our cells, and your pet’s, communicate using neurotransmitters. A sublingual dose of bioavailable CBD allows these CBD molecules to become neurotransmitters. They react to bodily changes sensed by the ECS and then stimulate the Immune System.
Endocannabinoids made in our bodies and Cannabinoids from exterior supplemental doses, are the only molecules that can activate the ECS.
We can maintain the health of our Immune Systems with regular doses of bioavailable CBD taken in a sublingual method of dosing.
Endocannabinoids are arguably one of the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules known to man.
And our bodies not only have receptors for them. We also produce them. They are so fundamental to health that there are even cannabinoids in human breast milk, the foundation of nutrition.
Research initially suggested endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the brain and nerves, but scientists later found that the receptors are present throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract. We now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function.
Scientists began to realize cannabis exerted its effects, in part, by mimicking our endocannabinoids. It appears the main function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis—biological harmony in response to changes in the environment.
With its complex effects on and actions in our immune system, nervous system, and organs, the endocannabinoid system is literally a bridge between body and mind. Understanding and further studying this system allows us to see how we can promote and support our own health or disease.
Research has shown that doses of cannabinoids can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors. Therefore, supplementing your diet with hemp CBD products may help improve your body’s use and abundance of both. And the end result could be highly beneficial to overall function of immunity and to health and wellbeing.
