As I have posted out on our website and newsletters several times – the work we have undertaken in the suburban wildlife garden has been quite a big job and I would NOT have been able to get it sorted with my knees as they are now!!
Your Amazing Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System was discovered by Dr Raphael Mechoulam, considered to be the father of cannabis-based medicines. What’s most amazing is that The Endocannabinoid system is now known to be the largest network of receptors in the human body.
The discovery of The Endocannabinoid System is arguably the greatest health discovery of modern times.
The main purpose of The Endocannabinoid System is to help the body maintain a sense of balance, also known as homeostasis. To illustrate, think of a time you have felt out of balance, such as under periods of considerable stress.
Under stress, our bodies shift into fight or flight mode, and our sympathetic nervous system is on overdrive, with heart pounding, shaking, sweating, panicking, mind racing. Daily life makes it very difficult to regroup and get back into balance. Rarely can we slow down enough to fully recover. There is always another day, with more demands pulling at us from all different angles.
In response to chronic stress, our bodies often respond in maladaptive fashion, with inflammation, gut imbalances, sleep disturbance, metabolic issues. Either not eating enough or overeating, run down immune system. This of course leading to a plethora of poor health conditions.
We need to learn to rest, digest and restore. The Endocannabinoid System is our great friend in this regard. Remember, The Endocannabinoid System is the largest network of receptors in the human body.
Initially, research suggested endocannabinoid receptors were present only in the nerves and brain; however, later on, scientists found the receptors were present throughout the entire body, including your:
- Fat tissue
- Blood vessels
- Gastrointestinal tract
What is a receptor?
A receptor is a protein molecule that receives signals from the outside. While cannabinoid receptors are known to be in the brain and nervous system, researchers have also identified cannabinoid receptors in the peripheral nervous system, cardiovascular system, reproductive system, gastrointestinal and urinary tracts. Cannabinoid receptors continue to be identified in our organs, connective tissue and glands, basically they are everywhere.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that bind to receptors in The Endocannabinoid System. Receptors are the locks and cannabinoids are the keys that unlock the receptors and activate them. CBD binds to the receptors and sends messages right into the cells.
Genes are the codes for every protein in our body. Among these proteins are signalling molecules. CBD modulates the transcription of genes that make signalling molecules that reduce inflammation.
It has been said “The root of almost all serious health complications is INFLAMMATION in the body.”
Experts continue to try and completely understand The Endocannabinoid System. So far, they know it plays a role in regulating a wide range of processes and functions, including:
- Fertility and reproduction
To understand signalling molecules, think of mobile phone signals; only these phone signals are going up and down The Endocannabinoid System all over the human body. The 2 main body systems where signalling molecules do their job:
- Hormonal system
- Immune System
This is why CBD and other cannabinoids are having such promise in mediating response in all these systems. Inflammation is closely linked to stress which is at the root of many health conditions today. CBD helps reduce out of control inflammation which is one reason CBD is so beneficial. We cannot make any health claims but we can encourage readers to explore, read more and learn.
Stress can wear us down but now we have a new best friend to help us on our path to restoration and rejuvenation. Take time to learn more about your Endocannabinoid System.
Take good care of your Endocannabinoid System and it will most certainly take good care of you.
So – with that in mind I would suggest that these items could just be very helpful!!

FRESH FOOD SOURCES
If you are keen to find a good source of vegetables and other foods – move away from the supermarkets and find a local farm shop – the quality and taste of the goods in these places can be SO much better – the taste and lasting quality can be SO good.
We’re lucky enough to have one such place not far from us just north of the town of Bridport and walking into the shop you can just smell the difference in the produce. The carrots taste wonderful (and LAST a lot longer on the shelf than ANY supermarket versions have) – the weight of the lettuces was a surprise! Again – lasting so much longer. Bananas and the comparison to supermarket versions? NO contest! The lasting of our farm shop versions is wonderful!!!
Prices are very good in comparison as well!
We have had a LOT of interest in our healthy breakfast!
Do take a look for the list of ingredients and look forward to generally better energy and better gut behaviour!!
A meal like this is FAR better than the “cures” that are seen on TV ads for “heartburn” and “reflux”…..just saying!
