Paradise found in Homeostasis

Homeostasis and dogs

Homeostasis, the biological balance of the natural rhythms of life and our bodies, has a deep impact on our mental, physical, and emotional health. Attaining homeostasis in life, pun intended, is truly a balancing act. Finding and maintaining equilibrium in the midst of a lava flow of stress can seem like climbing mountains. However, when you reach the peak and look out over the sun setting, painting the sky with brilliant lavender and glorious orange, it feels like you’ve found paradise.

Reaching these heights is helped by the body’s endocannabinoid system. CBD works in unison with the receptors in our bodies, allowing our endocannabinoid system (ECS) to support and regulate mood, appetite, immune system, sleep cycles, and anxiety levels. This helps us achieve proper levels of health and mental clarity. CBD, derived from phytocannabinoids naturally occuring in hemp plants can help us hit this sweet spot. 

The rush of sensation we get from zipping down a hill on our bikes, the wind in our hair and the sunshine on our face, comes in part from endocannabinoids. ECS brings us to that place, creating and maintaining a healthy homeostasis for our bodies. Think of it as a hammock on a beach, gently swaying, as we listen to our favorite song. Equilibrium brings a sense of calm to our bodies and minds. To accomplish our goal of reaching paradise, we need to follow the ABC’s:

Awareness: Gain knowledge of the way homeostasis affects our bodies and lives. The condition of equilibrium presents a quandary, as it is a resistance to change in its very definition. Embrace this resistance and persevere. Only then are we on a true path to creating the healthiest version of ourselves, emotionally and physically. CBD helps our bodies reach this level by working in unison with our ECS.  

Bargaining: Be prepared to negotiate with your inner resistance to change. We must learn to accept it, survive and thrive! Just as a marathon runner pushes their body toward a faster time, pushing past their physical limits, utilizing inner strength to overcome the pain and turn it into performance, in life we must conquer fears, doubts to take on the daily challenges of change. 

Consistency: Embarking on a journey of change also requires stability. We must be mentally stable to adapt without losing all measures of comfort. Building a strong foundation is key to weathering the storm! CBD provides that structure for our bodies and brains to take on life in a calm, balanced way. Achieving that base level of homeostasis provides stability during the uproar of change.

Homeostasis, CBD, and the Endocannabinoid System

CBD, endocannabinoid, and homeostasis

Like a surfer on a wave, your body is constantly shifting to keep balanced and healthy. In short, an internal self-regulating system. The endocannabinoid System (ECS) helps to maintain this balance called Homeostasis and CBD helps.

Homeostasis is the balance of all body systems and functions. Most importantly, keeps our body at an optimal state, and in tune. Being a vital part of our physical cycle in our every day lives. With CBD, the homeostasis state is nourished.

Cannabinoids are essential for our health, homeostasis, and they tie in deeply with CBD. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids (endo, meaning internally made) that bind to cell membrane receptors, as a result, binding together like two puzzle pieces. Above all, these endocannabinoids work with receptors to encourage the balanced functions impacting appetite, sleep cycles, relaxation, and cognition. The ECS also assists in the body’s overall recovery and repair.

We can activate our endocannabinoid system by using a phytocannabinoid (phyto, meaning plant origin) called CBD from hemp pants, subsequently nourishing our cell receptors. The hemp plant has 113 known cannabinoids, and CBD is just one of them. Those cannabinoids are concentrated as resin trimchomes (hairs) on the plant.

When it comes to extracting CBD from hemp plants, the CBD molecules can be 100% isolated. Which means leaving THC molecules behind, along with the impairing effects.

In short, cannabinoids and CBD play a significant role in a homeostasis. Therefore, providing balance to our bodies. Do you get enough CBD in your daily regimen?
