CBD’s role in interacting with hormones to create balance within the body.
CBD interacts with our bodies on a cellular level. It is no surprise therefore that it plays a substantial role in how it interacts with our hormones and thus affects our bodies physically.
CBD has vast effects on
CBD & Stress Response
The hormone that directly deals with memories and stress response is cortisol. CBD can decrease cortisol to help as a stress reliever.
CBD & Metabolism
CBD has profound effects on diabetics. Diabetes causes many changes in the body due to excess glucose. Normally insulin is what get sugar out of the blood and into the cells. But for diabetics, there is not enough insulin produced or the body does not accept the insulin. In such cases, CBD can help reverse the negative effects by getting the glucose out of the blood stream and into the cells.
CBD will help sugar get into the cells, decreasing the resistance that the insulin normally sees at the cellular level.
CBD & Melatonin
When it comes to sleep, CBD helps balance our circadian rhythm in balancing the right amounts of melatonin in the day and at night. CBD increases the production of melatonin at night and decreases melatonin levels during the day.
CBD promotes homeostasis or overall balance in the body:
CBD promotes the production of receptor molecules that can have direct effects of different parts of the body be it the kidneys, brain, heart, liver, digestive track and lungs. In short, the lesson we can take from this episode is that CBD interacts with our body at a CELLULAR level, in each and every part of our being, both physically and mentally.
