Functions of the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is perhaps the most crucial biological system involved in creating and maintaining optimum homeostasis in your body. Endocannabinoids and related CB1 and CB2 receptor sites are produced and found nearly everywhere in your body. They are in your brain, tissues, organs, glands, and cells. In each region, your endocannabinoid system performs countless functions with one sole purpose, homeostasis. By consuming cannabidiol (CBD), homeostasis begins to occur in your body at an unprecedented speed on many levels. Fundamentally, CBD provides internal balance for human anatomy despite wildly accelerating changes and stress in your external environment.

One example is relief from inflammation and pain from chronic or acute injury while incurring no tolerance or dependence. CBD minimizes pain and damage caused by an injury. CBD prevents your body from doing too much of a good thing when injured by inhibiting your body’s immune reaction from growing out of control. This is done by inhibiting activators such as histamine and C-reactive protein (CRP), therefore limiting inflammation. At the same time, CBD throttles your nerve cells from excessive synaptic firing, acting as a potent pain reliever.

Another example of homeostasis caused by cannabinoids is its powerful effect on cancer and tumors. Cannabinoids optimize normal cells while hunting down and killing cancer and tumor cells. Malignant cells produce a high amount of a compound that CBD is attracted to. This causes an unhealthy cell to die, leaving only healthy cells and enhancing your body’s homeostasis at a whole new level.

CBD is well researched for its anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-psychotic, and immune system properties. CBD users have lower levels of C-reactive protein which is directly connected to cardiovascular disease and stroke. CBD is known to help with Alzheimer’s, arteriosclerosis, bowel disorders, cirrhosis, depression, diabetes (type 1 and 2), hypertension, metabolic syndrome, nausea, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and much more, all without causing tolerance or dependence.

As a practitioner understanding the endocannabinoid system and CBD, you can cross over to a new paradigm of healing, promoting health, and preventing disease. We encourage you to browse the Internet and read the thousands of reputable studies about the endocannabinoid system and CBD published.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question? Here are some of the most common questions we receive. Don’t see the answer you were looking for? Feel free to ask your own questions HERE.

WHY SHOULD I USE AGORA CBD?

Unlike chemically derived CBD, we do not remove just the cannabinoid from the plant. Agora CBD is extracted by a chemical-free process that invokes all of the plant’s natural synergy. We extract the natural fatty acids, waxes, minerals, vitamins, terpenes, and flavonoids to create a potent phyto-rich, full spectrum, “as found in nature” supplement for your body.

We call this the “entourage effect,” which provides you the potential of CBD’s most natural state. We are convinced this form of CBD is the most efficacious and takes advantage of the whole plant interacting with your endocannabinoid system, just as nature intended.

IS CBD LEGAL?

Agora CBD is 100% legal anywhere in the USA. This is because Agora CBD is derived from hemp. The DEA acknowledges that CBD from hemp is legal in the USA, enacted under the 2014 US Farm Bill. This is because “industrial hemp” is excluded explicitly from the drug scheduling definition of marijuana in Section 7606 of the Farm Bill. Meanwhile, using, possessing or distributing CBD from marijuana is technically against current federal law.

HOW LONG DOES CBD TAKE TO WORK?

This certainly varies from person to person as do the dosages. Most people take 10mg per dosage and this could be a 10mg gel cap or a dropper full of oil which comes in a 1-ounce bottle labeled 250 which is also 10mg. We have seen and heard that most people experience growing relief within as little as 20 minutes and as late as one week.

We advocate that you take a smaller dosage at the beginning, and work your way up if needed.
