Science has proven that CBD does work to help manage pain, anxiety, sleeplessness, depression and so much more. Does one take it for a short time frame or do they incorporate it into their daily health routine?

The answer is the latter, it should and will in the future, be a daily part of your continuous efforts to keep healthy and sane. Just like you take your vitamins, eat healthy and get exercise, you will micro-dose your daily CBD. With this new addition to your lifestyle, everything else that you do will be so much more effective and you will find that wonderful effect called, Homeostasis, which regulates every metabolic process in the body to keep things running as they should.

What is Micro-dosing? In general, it is a means to manipulate the receptors and gain a desired physiologic response with less drug. Micro-dosing adheres to the medical standard operating procedure of start low and go slow. With self-experimentation, one will discover their personal ideal CBD daily dose.

To refresh our knowledge of the ECS (Endocannabinoid System), a “Cannabinoid” is the name given to any compound that interacts with the ECS, including the cannabinoids found naturally in your body (called endocannabinoids) and the ones found naturally in plants (called phytocannabinoids). When we reward ourselves by leading a healthy lifestyle, our endocannabinoids are enhanced but become more so with the help of a phytocannabinoid, such as CBD.

A healthy lifestyle can be different for everyone but should include a balanced, mostly plant-based diet with lots of healthy protein sources and fats like avocado. Also, we know we have to move! Its best to move throughout the day than just one hour of intense exercise, and then being sedentary the rest of the day. Movement outside in nature is even better.

The bottom line is that a functional endocannabinoid system, which is hardwired into all of us, is essential for good health. Once you build it up and correct any deficiencies, you will feel homeostasis returning to your body, layer by layer. You will start to feel better, have more energy, less pain and lose that fear about your health.
