Emotional Homeostasis… Yep! It is a thing! To take a step back and explain Homeostasis is the balancing system of your body that is responsible for practically every function! It even aids in keeping the internal temperature of your body at a perfectly toasty temperature around 98.6 degrees regardless of the external temperatures surrounding you. So just as homeostasis balances and keeps your physical body in check it seems homeostasis is also the balancing system for your emotions as well. This is fairly new research but has a very promising key to treatment of many emotional issues. Let’s dig a bit deeper!
Now… Legal Hippie Science ignite! Ha! Rather you are open to admit this or not your emotional health is deeply connected to your mental health. A stressful event or even stress in general can and will affect how your body functions and your well-being. You may even begin to suffer from aches, pains, and even sickness. Physical response to stress can even include increased heart rate and blood pressure.
As stress rises we are beginning to see more and more cases of depression, anxiety and mood disorders. A large majority of these people are turning quickly to prescription medications including SSRI’s. SSRI stands for selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or for a short description a serotonin transporter. The problem with this is that researchers are now learning and understanding that while these might seem to be the fast bandade they are messing with the human endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid system actually protects our mind and body from negative external influences! The endocannabinoid system is also perpetually trying to achieve the perfect internal balance called homeostasis as I spoke of in the previous paragraphs. When external stressors become apparent the endocannabinoid system will release certain cannabinoids to help! Each one is responsible for a different emotional reaction and a different physical response. What this means is that when you feel your best and even perform your best your brain gets excited and releases tons of positive endocannabinoids within your body making you feel even better! If you are wondering, these are your very own endoCANNABINOIDS that your body creates. A very popular one in the endocannabinoid world is anandamide. Anandamide is also known as the bliss molecule. This special little bliss molecule is the human version of THC! Anandamides help with mental health, pain relief, post exercise relief, hunger, and even memory.
Now how does this tie into CBD. Instead of reaching for pharmaceuticals to wreck havoc on your system further pushing you out of homeostasis try CBD. CBD or Cannabinoids aid and help your body to remain in homeostasis furthermore helping your own system to fight the good fight and supply the needs your body is craving… including your very own THC or otherwise know as anadamides aka bliss molecule.
So in a short study today, that literally just scraped the surface of the science behind it all, we have learned that CBD helps! To help achieve your very own homeostasis and a natural boost of your very own THC (anandamide) reach for Legal Hippie CBD.
