Nutrition, exercise and mental health are the foundations to maintaining good health.

As we get older, our body naturally reduces its own ability to do things we are used to it doing. Hence why the supplement industry has grown in popularity. While medical statements and the like can not legally be made, there is a tremendous amount of data from studies that show there are many milestones achieved in improving conditions. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in the hemp plant that provides many health benefits with none of the psycho-active effects normally associated with cannabis use.

We have already discussed the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) herehowever, we will include just a couple points about your bodies natural CBD system.

Most people are simply not aware that the human body produces its own cannabis-like compounds called, endocannabinoids.

They are part of a system in the body known as the "endocannabinoid system" (ECS). While there is still much to be learned about the ECS, research has shown that the ECS influences our stress response, how memory works, how our appetite works, and more.

The EndoCannabinoid System (ECS), CBD, and Optimization

Among other potential benefits, DNA CBD derived from hemp helps reduce inflammation and is a powerful antioxidant. As we get older our body is working overtime to inhibit oxidation, especially to counteract deterioration. There are many studies that have demonstrated CBD offers anti-inflammatory relief with no kidney damage nor other harmful side effects. The possibilities for managing pain could be endless. Since the Farm Bill of 2018 (December) removed hemp as a controlled substance, future research and development will make this evolve even further!

Please note, it is important to speak with your doctor regarding CBD use, especially if you are taking other medications, supplements, and/or other medicines.
