With chronic disease or dysfunction, our bodies struggle to maintain homeostasis or balance. To define an issue as chronic, either pain, inflammation, or imbalance means that the issue has lasted longer than 12 weeks. When our bodies can’t keep up or reestablish balance, we can end up with an endocannabinoid deficiency. Some of these imbalances such as migraine, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome are difficult for sufferers to treat and many have endured the stigma of a psychosomatic label. This can be frustrating for the sufferer as well as the medical practitioner treating the patient. This is possibly the result of a clinical endocannabinoid deficiency which is not commonly addressed in traditional medicine and not well treated with prescription medications.
Science is researching this phenomena with positive preliminary results, however, many people have found relief for their chronic issues by supplementing their endocannabinoid system with phytocannabinoids like CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) the two main cannabinoids found to have anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, antinausea, antispasmodic, properties as well as so many other beneficial properties.
CBD and THC along with their many complimenting cannabinoids and terpenes have helped many people with chronic issues that traditional over-the-counter medications or prescriptions have not been able to address. That is because pharmaceutical medications do not address the issue of endocannabinoid deficiency. Phytocannabinoids have the same chemical structure as our bodies own endocannabinoids and so they can address this deficiency by supplementing and supporting our bodies ability to bring itself back into balance (homeostasis).
Since the endocannabinoid system is found throughout the body, phytocannabinoid supplementation can go a long way to address these issues that have frustrated so many patients and healthcare providers. While the science is catching up to the anecdotal evidence, CBD, THC, and the many complimenting cannabinoids and terpenes have been helping many sufferers gain balance back into their lives.
