Homeostasis..

It’s all about balance!

Homeostasis/Balance

First off, what is Homeostasis? It is the stability and balance of your body’s internal environment. For example, when you shiver in cold temperatures, or sweat from a heated workout, that’s your body trying to maintain homeostasis, or that proper internal balance.

Some experts believe that cannabinoids may be important for the body in order to nourish and support that balance. Read here for more about cannabinoids.

Homeostasis And Our Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System or ECS, is very complex, but many experts believe that its primary role is to maintain this balance within our bodies.

Check out this research, it has linked our endocannabinoid systems to these vital processes.

  • appetite
  • digestion
  • bone remodeling and growth
  • chronic pain
  • inflammation and other immune system responses
  • cardiovascular system function
  • learning and memory
  • liver function
  • motor control
  • metabolism
  • mood
  • muscle formation
  • reproductive system function
  • skin and nerve function
  • sleep
  • stress

What If The Balance Becomes Unstable?

Our body systems all work together to maintain our internal balance. If that balance is ever shifted or disrupted and the homeostasis disrupted, a disease/disorder may arise.

How Can CBD Help With Homeostasis?

Well, whenever any of these systems are out of line, it effects our bodies at the cellular level. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system, CBD promotes the body’s ability to achieve this internal balance. This is because CBD acts upon special receptors located throughout the body, which produces a variety of potential benefits for us.

Therefore, supplementing our ECS with a plant based hemp nutrition makes a lot of sense; especially knowing that it is an abundant source of phyto-cannabinoid rich nutrition. Consuming edibles made from hemp, like this hemp honey, is one way to get CBD naturally. You can also begin using hemp derived CBD based wellness products to help the body self-regulate and self-repair. If you do either of these things, please make sure to get it from a trustworthy source.
