Maintaining a healthy balance and homeostasis
As explained in our two articles on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), the ECS is responsible for maintaining ‘homeostasis’ or stability and balance of all our bodily functions.
Just as other food supplements can help to maintain and improve your health, so you can nourish your ECS with Love Hemp CBD products. A healthy diet and a balance of exercise and rest are the essential components of good health.
All Love Hemp products provide a convenient way of supplementing your diet with whole plant, low-THC cannabis extract. The principle active ingredient is cannabidiol (CBD) which is non-psychoactive. You won’t get ‘high’ from Love Hemp products and they are all perfectly legal. The cannabis plants from which they are made are low-THC varieties known as industrial hemp which are grown under licence.
Some people might be concerned about taking even a non-psychoactive form of cannabis. For many years the media has been full of reports about cannabis as a dangerous substance. However, science is now proving that most of these concerns are unfounded. Of course, high-THC cannabis remains illegal and it is a powerful, psychoactive drug but the low-THC varieties from which Love Hemp products are made contain only safe and beneficial compounds, most importantly CBD.
Researchers are investigating CBD for all sorts of medical conditions and later in 2017 or early 2018 the first CBD prescription medicine for epilepsy is expected to become available. This will contain much higher levels of CBD than Love Hemp products and will only be available under medical supervision.
Other CBD medicines may also become available. Scientists are researching it for the treatment of chronic pain, inflammation and bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease. It is already available in a medicine for multiple sclerosis known as Sativex. This also contains an equal amount of THC and is used for controlling the spasms or tremors that patients suffer.
It’s important to be clear that Love Hemp CBD products are not medicines, they are food supplements. To be used as a medicine, much higher levels of CBD would be required and the products would need to go through extensive testing known as clinical trials. Love Hemp products can be used in the same way as you use vitamin or mineral supplements. They are perfectly safe as long as you follow the dosage instructions and they will help maintain and improve your health over time.
So just as you have a routine with watching your diet, eating plenty of vegetables, not too much fat, sugar or alcohol, exercising regularly and getting plenty of rest and a good night’s sleep, so you can regularly take a few drops of Love Hemp CBD oil. It will do you good and help to maintain a healthy balance in your life.
