When one or more of the systems in our body become unbalanced we experience things like illness or pain. Over-the-counter or prescription pharmaceuticals are usually our first line of defense, however these medications only address the symptoms we are feeling; they do not address the lack of balance in our body’s systems. Additionally, pharmaceuticals have many side effects, such as:
- Potential for addiction/dependency
- Organ damage
These side effects caused by pharmaceuticals can lead to additional symptoms and, subsequently, cause an individual to require additional pharmaceuticals or medications. This cycle of taking pharmaceuticals for every ache, pain, or condition causes the body’s systems to be thrown even more off balance.
Research shows that CBD works at the cellular level to bring balance to all of the systems in the body. It works in two different ways within the body:
- It balances systems that are experiencing excess of something by bringing levels down
- It balances systems that are experiencing a deficiency by naturally increasing levels within the body
This happens because cells have receptors on them that are specifically for CBD. The body naturally makes some CBD, but using additional CBD can help make sure our bodies have more than enough to maintain the proper balance needed to function correctly and feel healthy.
