The importance of CBD Education is a key focus for ADM Lab's corporate values and we pride ourselves in being a contributor to educating the public on CBD benefits and products.
Get in touch with your Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System (ESC) function in a large role in your body's homeostasis affecting multiple biological symptoms. For example, the affected biological symptoms often include sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood, and even reproduction. The ECS brings balance to the body. As a result, it is no surprise that scientists observed changes in ECS activity in a number of diseases. For an indepth analysis you can read this research document.
Did you know?
The total number of endocannabinoid receptors in the body out numbers all other neuromodulatory receptors found in the body combined. This number includes receptors for the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. For instance, anandamide alone shows the most receptors in the brain and is critical for maintaining a healthy central nervous system.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) naturally occurs as a compound, found in the resinous flower of hemp, a historically rich medicinal plant. Today, the therapeutic properties of CBD continue testing and confirmations by scientists and doctors around the world.
Therefore, being seen as a safe, non-addictive substance, CBD remains one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids remain unique to cannabis and endow the plant with a robust therapeutic profile. These and many more reasons make the foudnation for the importance of CBD education.Learn how ADM Labs is disrupting the industry
Based on the research from recent studies, CBD may be an effective and natural treatment for high blood pressure. A 2017 study treated 10 men with one 600 mg dose of CBD. As a result of this study, the CBD reduced the resting blood pressure of the subjects.
Cannabinoids help protect brain cells from damage, keeping the organ healthy and functioning properly. Likewise, CBD has shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect on the brain. Additionally, CBD helps prevent other nerve-related diseases like neuropathy and Alzheimer's disease.
There are also many other beneficial properties of CBD. An animal study concluded that CBD has a potent anti-inflammatory effect. As a result, CBD improves lung function, suggesting it could be a useful therapeutic tool for the treatment of inflammatory lung diseases.
The endocannabinoid system participates significantly in the normal physiology of gastrointestinal function. Importantly, ECS has displayed involvement in motility, gut-brain-mediated fat intake and hunger signalling, inflammation and gut permeability, and dynamic interactions with gut microbiota.
It is now estimated that over 130 people die from opioid overdose every day. There is no current cure for addiction. However, there is some evidence to show that use of CBD oil might have a positive impact on the experience of people struggling with anxiety, depression, or PTSD.
Most noteworthy, the common thread underlying chronic fatigue and chronic stress is inflammation within the brain and the tissues that make up the peripheral and central nervous system. Moreover, it has been widely established that the ECS acts in a key role to play in the occurrence and management of inflammation.
The fear of developing a debilitating form of dementia, like Alzheimer’s disease, is real for many people. On the other hand, this same fear is the reason why learning more about CBD, including its effects on memory, is so intriguing. Whether it’s Alzheimer’s or general memory loss, scientific research points towards the potential of CBD to help brain functioning and improve memory.
Some research hints that CBD may affect sleep directly, by interacting with receptors in the brain that govern the body’s daily sleep/wake cycles. This is according to a 2017 review of sleep and cannabis in the journal Current Psychiatry Reports.
CBD is capable of helping treat people suffering from PTSD by improving the mediation of essential functions including memory consolidation and retrieval. As a result, by activating CB1 and CB2 receptors located throughout this core system, cannabinoids could enhance the system to produce neurotransmitters that helps promote happiness, pleasure, and memory.
