What you need to know when buying CBD oil for Fibromyalgia
CBD and the endocannabinoid system (ECS)
ECS is a series of receptors located on cells all throughout the body. This massive receptor system encourages the health, well-being, and homeostasis of our bodies. These receptors support many systems in the body including the central nervous system, connective tissues, organs, immune systems, and even our brains. With this comes the balance of sleep, metabolism, and energy control.
How can CBD help?
Cannabinoids (CBD) interact with your bodies Endocannabinoid System and help activate their receptors. Initial research has shown that for some people, the body does not generate enough endocannabinoids on its own. (Smith and Wagner, 2014).
This concept, originally proposed by researcher E.B. Russo in 2004, further speculates that the deficiency could be the root cause of many autoimmune disorders, including migraines, fibromyalgia, and IBS.
Where does CBD oil come from?
The first thing to know is that CBD oil is derived from the hemp plant and not the marijuana plant. It is an important distinction as most people associate marijuana with its primary effect of getting high. The industrial hemp plant contains very little THC which is the substance that gives your body a high.
