Health Is Achieved Through Physiological Homeostasis.
Homeostasis is the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes. It’s the condition of optimal functioning for the organism.
Healthy individuals produce endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids): anandamide and 2AG. There are also receptors (CB1 and CB2) in our physiological systems designed specifically to recognize and respond to the endocannabinoids. Together, they form an endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Our natural Endocannabinoid System maintains homeostasis.
When endocannabinoid production is in short supply, phytocannabinoids may come in handy to supplement the deficiency. There are around 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant the best known of which are CBD, CBDa, THC, and THCa.
Cannabidiol (CBD) has powerful anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive qualities and unlike THC, does not have psychotropic properties.
|Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDa) has strong analgesic properties, much stronger than CBD (or THC). The problem is in the instability of the acidic form. Under elevated temperatures, CBDa undergoes a chemical reaction (decarboxylation) and turns into CBD. Scientists are working to create a synthetic version of CBDa with the hope that it will replace opioids for many patients.
CTFO patented technology 10xPure™ has shown to preserve large amounts of CBDa. Right now CTFO is the only brand on the market that offers full-spectrum CBD oil with increased amounts of CBDa giving better relief to joint and muscle discomfort.
People with autoimmune diseases may greatly benefit from supplementing their ECS with phytocannabinoids.
Cannabinoids don’t treat any symptoms. Instead, they help our body systems to return to the state of homeostasis. This explains why CBD and other cannabinoids are known to help with many different disorders. On their own, they are not a panacea. They work in harmony with our built-in ECS.
