CBD and THC interact with our bodies in a variety of ways. One of the main ways they impact us is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called “endogenous cannabinoids” - so named because of their similarity to the compounds found in the cannabis plant. These “endocannabinoids” are part of a regulatory system called the “endocannabinoid system”.
While you may not feel high, you may find the addition of CBD and THC beneficial to your recovery, especially if you suffer from pain or stiffness or have a sports-related injury. “I get massages using both CBD and THC infused topicals to reduce inflammation pre, post and during exercise. When massaged into the sore muscles, cannabis helps me get back outdoors faster leaving me feeling less sore,” said Bethany Rae, the founder of Flower and Freedom, a Vancouver based health and fitness education platform that focuses on the use of cannabis for a healthy lifestyle. “I know many athletes that aren’t in pain of some kind whether that be joint pain, muscle pain, back pain or fatigue. Cannabis has the potential to provide natural pain relief.”
“Hay un producto del que soy muy fan en términos de cuidado del cuerpo: he estado usando una loción con CBD. Se llama Lord Jones y la he descubierto gracias a mis amigos de LA. Estuve trabajando en Broadway durante seis meses y mi cuerpo se resintió, estaba destrozado y mi cuello muy tenso. El CBD tiene beneficios relajantes y la idea es evitar utilizar demasiados analgésicos”. Habla Olvia Wilde en una entrevista concedida a The New York Times sobre su rutina de belleza.
But he wasn’t finished. In February of 1980, Dr. Mechoulam teamed up with South American researchers to publish a study regarding cannabis and epilepsy. This study is seen as one of the earliest double-blind studies of CBD on clinical subjects. The study Dr. Mechoulam and his team conducted included 16 people, many of whom were children, who all suffered from severe epilepsy. The results were startling: Every subject who received CBD experienced improvement in their condition with little to no side effects. This anticonvulsant study has since proven to be an integral milestone in the world of clinical marijuana research, but largely went unnoticed at the time.
Check Dr. Stephen Porges’ work, as well as Stanley Rosenburg. Both treat trauma and the vagus nerve’s role in bodily symptoms, which cause a lot of the symptoms you mention, as well as other people here. Some of Stanley Rosenburg’s simple exercises along with Stephen Porges’ work, can realign the vagus nerve and when done regularly have a cumulative effect. Basically, most symptoms, even seizures can be caused by misalignments and/or contracted muscles, (even the tiniest muscle in the human body, the stapedius muscle when chronically contracted can cause havoc on body) all under the umbrella of the vagus nerve (polyvagal nervous system). This is very well researched and is cutting edge treatment without the use of drugs of any kind. Some of Porges’ treatments use music, believe it or not, specially designed headsets with bone conduction. But please research, there are therapists trained in this field and in meantime, you can self-apply Stanley Rosenburg’s Basic Exercise, as well as others, first and you will see drastic results.
2. In a second pan, add the mango seed butter, olive oil (or the “foundation oil”), sunflower lecithin, Simpson oil and the powdered 5-Loxin or Boswellia Serrata extract powder. Melt these together at about 140 – 200 degrees or the low setting on your burner. This is a very gentle melting process, don’t let the oil bubble or burn. Stir frequently until all ingredients are melted together. Remove from the burner after this has melted and add all of the essential oils.
Los pacientes con fibromialgia pueden presentar dificultades al concentrarse o al realizar tareas mentales sencillas. Estas dificultades aparecen y desaparecen, en muchos casos en relación al estado de ánimo, al descanso, y a la intensidad del dolor. También los cuadros ansioso depresivos pueden determinar problemas cognitivos que podemos observar en las diferentes fases de la enfermedad, según la estabilidad en la evolución. Es muy variable la presencia de estos problemas en las áreas cognitivas, y dependiendo de la edad del paciente es difícil valorarlos con objetividad.
