What Is CBD And What Are The Benefits?
In our quest to find optimal health and healing, we have found many open doors leading to the healthiest foods and diets for all creatures along with the healthiest and most beneficial micro-foods such as herbs, spices and botanicals that provide micro-nutrients and detoxification for the body. It is most important that all of these products get the proper preparation in order to achieve their best benefit.
Recent changes in government regulations has made us able to use and provide one of natures’ miracle food components, cannabidiol hemp oil, otherwise known as “CBD” Oil or “CBD” Hemp Oil. Unlike it’s cousin, these hemp oil products are non-psychoactive. In hemp, CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. CBD interacts with the body’s naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic, it doesn’t contain THC or cause a high. This makes it safe and offers significant health benefits.
Numerous pets and even family members suffer from cancer, anxiety, pain, stress, post-surgery discomfort, inflammation, allergies, asthma, neurological disorders, seizures, drug withdrawal, appetite suppression, insomnia and more. Found in all mammals, the endocannabinoid system is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily throughout the brain and central nervous system (CB1 receptors) and immune system (CB2 receptors) that act in neural communication.
CBD interacts within the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. Discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, along with pain and immune response. It also increases oxygenation of the blood which is important especially when exercising.
According to our findings, when CBD is used in an integrated nutritional program of species appropriate diets, natural herbs and botanicals, it promotes healing and relief of unwanted symptoms. Many of the challenges mentioned above suddenly, without warning or even medical understanding just disappear.
As we constantly have mentioned, nature has answers that many have not explored and can do amazing things. Foods bring us nutrients but also remove toxins which is why vomit and diarrhea are healthy responses, not an illness. The understanding of the biodynamics of the body, whether it be ours or those of our pets and even the animals that we use for food, is critical. We need to require our doctors and veterinarians to be versed and able to explain biodynamics to us. If not, then we need seek those that can.
Our goal is for all our pets and families to be healthy. Everyone deserves it and it can be achieved through a healthier protocol minus the excessive use of medicine, pharmaceuticals and chemicals manufactured and promoted by corporations primarily to enhance their business model.
