CBD and Emu Oil: Overcoming the Stigma to Embrace Its Health Benefits
When many people think of CBD (cannabidiol), they think of regular marijuana that’s rolled into a joint and smoked, creating the “high” your mother warned you about. But that’s not how CBD or hemp works — not even close.
Rather, CDB comes from hemp, not marijuana, and is typically taken in oil form, not smoked. CBD has been a hot topic throughout the country, particularly as scientists continue to uncover its health benefits and uses. CBD is being explored an effective treatment for depression, diabetes, seizures, arthritis, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and a number of other health issues.
But to understand how CBD can impact your health, it’s important first to understand the body’s endocannabinoid system and how it enables CBD to interact with the body to produce its benefits.
How Your Body Reacts to Cannabis
Your body has a lot more in common with cannabis than you might think. All the effects that cannabis has on your body wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t already have a biological system that’s capable of interacting with the active compounds in cannabis.
This system is referred to as the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and it’s comprised of cannabinoid receptors that are found on the surface of cells, endocannabinoids that activate cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes that break down the endocannabinoid.
Your skin is one of your body’s biggest endocannabinoid systems, but cannabinoid receptors can be found throughout the body. It’s because of this widespread availability that CBD can effectively treat a range of medical issues.
It is only when something in your body is out of balance that the ECS activates. Cannabis reacts with the body’s cannabinoid receptors to bring your body back to homeostasis, which is why topical CBD treatments are becoming so popular. The skin can immediately absorb the CBD and put it to work.
What is CBD Oil and How Does it Work?
CBD oil is the end product that has been extracted from a raw cannabis plant. It’s completely legal in all states because it comes from hemp, not marijuana. CBD and hemp are commonly used interchangeably with marijuana, but the main difference is that marijuana contains THC, the psychoactive ingredient that is responsible for the “high” users get when they smoke it. CBD contains little to no THC, thus eliminating the bad qualities of cannabis while retaining the good properties.
In a perfect body, the ratio of endocannabinoids to receptors is balanced, which is essential for the body to maintain homeostasis. But when disruptions to this perfect harmony occur, health issues may manifest in the body, such as a disease, injury, or inflammation. When the body lacks endocannabinoids to bind to their corresponding receptors, CBD oil can fill in the gaps and return the body back to its ideal balance.
Benefits of CBD Oil
CBD impacts your body on a cellular level, interacting with essentially every system in your body because of the vast number of receptors. This is why CBD oil has been touted to have a positive impact on a variety of health issues, including but not limited to
● Cancer-related symptoms
● Seizures and epilepsy
● Depression and anxiety
● Sleep quality
● Multiple Sclerosis
● Acne and other skin conditions
● Substance addiction
The most common medical conditions that have been studied and shown to respond effectively to CBD are pain, anxiety, depression, epilepsy/seizures, and insomnia. However, there are countless other studies that have shown hopefulness to other conditions listed above. As the interest in CBD grows, we can expect the number of studies, trials, and other research to increase as well and provide more insight into what else CBD can do.
Combining the Benefits of CBD with Emu Oil
Emu oil has been touted as an effective carrier oil for CBD. Emu oil works deep into the skin, which is why it’s often used to reduce pain and inflammation. And unlike other oils, Emu oil does not contain any phospholipids, which allows it to infiltrate multiple layers of skin. On its own, Emu oil has shown promising health benefits to those with high cholesterol, Crohn’s disease, and inflammatory diseases, and also supports healthy brain function and skin health. As discussed in one of our previous blog posts, Emu oil contains the entire fatty acid chain (Omega 3, 6, 9, 11), which allows oxidation in the red blood cells and promotes brain health. Additionally, it has been found to have antioxidant and free radical-scavenging properties.
In many ways, CBD oil and Emu oil have a lot in common. Their properties are similar and both have research to back up the positive impact they have on your health. Combining them may not give you any super powers, but it can certainly help you to get the health benefits of both worlds in a single product.
