Have you been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and want to buy CBD hemp oil? If you have, then you probably know that doctors currently do not know the cause of fibromyalgia and aren’t exactly sure how to treat it. Here’s some good news: doctors are beginning to research the role of the endocannabinoid system in the human body and some believe endocannabinoid deficiency may be at the root of disorders like migraines, irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system is found in most mammals—you have an endocannabinoid system, too! The role of your endocannabinoid system is to maintain balance (homeostasis) in your body, playing an important part in how you respond to stress. Prolonged stress is associated with decreased endocannabinoid levels, as is alcoholism and an unhealthy lifestyle. Dr. Ethan Russo believes that when endocannabinoids become depleted, you experience fibromyalgia. He has proposed that endocannabinoid deficiency and dysfunction be called Clinical Endocannabiniod Deficiency Syndrome (CEDS).
The Endocannabinoid System, CBD Hemp Oil & Fibromyalgia
The symptoms of fibromyalgia are often confused with other disorders: depression, anxiety, joint and muscle pain are all found in other diseases. Perhaps the most debilitating symptom reported by fibromyalgia patients is chronic pain. Cannabinoids such as CBD (short for cannabidiol) have demonstrated the ability to block the mechanisms that promote pain in fibromyalgia and related disorders.
Choose Whole Plant CBD Oil
When you buy CBD oil, you’ll be presented with countless choices. Make sure that the ingredients on the bottle say your CBD hemp oil was made from whole plant cannabis, NOT industrialized hemp. The reason? Potency. In 2015, the FDA tested oil made from industrialized hemp and found that some bottles contained little to no CBD.
Toxicity is another important reason. Industrialized hemp is a bio-accumulator, meaning that it easily gathers toxins from the soil. Since more industrialized hemp is needed to produce potent CBD oil, you could be ingesting harmful toxins.
