Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about the many benefits of hemp oil. In fact, one of the lead sponsors of The CrossFit Games is a hemp product company. The old, negative stigma’s associated with “cannabis” are starting to go away as research is showing the profound benefits linked to hemp/CBD oil.
But what is it and what does it really do?
Hemp Oil can be used to:
* Help regulate the body’s nervous system
* Support immune function
* Help maintain a normal inflammatory response
* Support restful sleep
* Assist with recovery from exercise-induced inflammation
* Aid with stress management and relief
* Bring about a sense of calm and focus
Hemp Oil can help with:
* Pain and inflammation
* Poor sleep
* Anxiety disorders and depression (in pets as well)
* Epilepsy, seizures and other neurological disorders
All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) made up of a vast network of receptors that keep the body functioning in a healthy way. The ECS is the body’s primary regulatory system. It’s like an internal balancing mechanism, constantly keeping multiple body functions in a state of equilibrium.
It’s crazy, but the ECS was only discovered within the last 20 years! So, doctors and researchers are still in the early stages of realizing the importance of the ECS. It is being referred to as the most important body system you’ve never heard of.
One thing is becoming quite clear – supplementing with CBD can greatly improve our health.
