Nature’s Best Kept Health Secret?

If you haven’t yet heard about the wonders of Hemp or CBD Oil, let’s have a little chat…

While we have long known about the benefits of hemp (or, its cousin, marijuana) our modern story starts in 1992 when scientists discovered an entirely new body system, thereafter named the “endocannabinoid system”.  This system, like the nerve or cardiovascular systems, has receptors all over our bodies- from the brain to the toes and everywhere in between.
These receptors require a molecule, now named the “endocannabinoid” that, when everything is working well, our body makes in abundance.  However, there are many reasons why our system might become deficient in our own body’s endocannabinoids.
Some symptoms of endocannabinoid deficiency include:

  • Migraine or chronic headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • IIBS (and related conditions)
  • Neonatal failure to thrive
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Burning pain
  • Brachial arm pain
  • Phantom limb pain
  • Infantile Colic
  • Glaucoma
  • Period cramping and pain
  • Severe nausea & vomiting during pregnancy
  • Repetitive miscarriages
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disease
  • and possibly many others, yet unknown

In fact, the science and research is so very new that we don’t know everything that the endocannabinoid system affects and deficiency might cause!  We do know more about what feeding the system can help with, and the list is very, very long.  Here’s a small sampling of that list:

  • Fertility
  • Pregnancy
  • Pre and postnatal development
  • Appetite
  • Improve Insulin sensitivity
  • Acts on fat cells
  • decrease tremors and muscle pain in MS
  • decrease pain sensation
  • Improve mood
  • Improve memory
  • Protective against  Alzheimer’s and traumatic brain injury (concussion)
  • Modulate nausea
  • Modulate breathing
  • Improve learning, memory, stress
  • Improved cognitive function
  • Bone health and preventative against osteoporosis
  • Decreases intestinal inflammation
  • Decreases input of stress to the HPA axis
  • Improve Hair growth,
  • Modulate cell proliferation & differentiation (protective against cancer
  • Improve acne or over oil production of the skin
  • Adaptogenic to stress
  • Improve ability to Relax
  • Forgetting bad memories (PTSD)
  • Protective to cells

With such a long and diverse list, this discovery really offers something for everyone.  As of right now, there are no known side effects- and since this is a concentrated food product, we are unlikely to find side effects in the future.  (That’s right, you can eat hemp- as well as make paper, clothing, rope, and much more with it.)

At our workshop on 6/25, we will be going into all the details about this wonderful plan.  We’ll talk about why hemp has been vilified, why, even after the body’s endocannabinoid system was discovered in the 1990s, it’s taken us almost 30 years to begin talking about it- and why this “Best Kept Secret of the Plant World” needs to be in your medicine cabinet.   RSVP today!
