When we are out of balance, we frequently feel unwell.
This can be due to a variety of factors, including work-related stress, disagreements with our partner, or symptoms such as continuous back pain or headaches from spending so much time in front of a screen.
These are just a few of the symptoms that we are all experiencing.
The quickest solution is to reach for an over-the-counter pain reliever, but as people are getting more educated, they are shifting toward herbal alternatives.
This is where CBD comes into play.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol.
It is a non-psychotropic part of the cannabis Sativa plant, which means that when consumed, it does not cause intoxication (unlike THC).
CBD, on the other hand, interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is made up of many small receptors in our bodies and provides a balanced state.
CBD has an effect on the endocannabinoid system (the ECS).
The ECS is made up of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids, which are small molecules made by the human body.
All of these factors contribute to our bodies' ability to maintain a healthy balance.
The ECS controls many bodily functions, including mood, appetite, and sleep.
As a result, an imbalance in the ECS can result in a lack of sleep, mood swings (even anxiety), and fluctuating appetite.
Our body achieves homeostasis, or body balance when all processes run smoothly.
If your body is out of balance (for example, due to an injury), the ECS steps in to restore and maintain this inner balance.
When you think of pain, you might recall breaking your ankle, cutting yourself with a knife while chopping vegetables, or that annoying headache you got after a long day of staring at your laptop screen.
However, we rarely associate pain with childhood trauma, past memories, or even a current stressful situation; a pain so insidious that it settles into our bodies as adults and manifests itself in minor, niggling aches.
Research suggests that stress and tension are commonly manifested into the corporeal, proving that the relationship between mental and physical pain is very real.
The Comfort of Ritual
The fact that CBD can help balance the body and mind ensures that it has calming effects.
It is no surprise that CBD has been incorporated into so many lives and daily rituals and that it is still widely used to keep us focused on what is most important in life.
Some rituals, particularly those centered on wellness and wellbeing, are undeniably beneficial and also make us feel good.
The repetitive morning motions of simply putting some oil under the tongue have proven to be a balancing act for many people, as well as the ideal way to balance the jittery, panicky effect of a large dose of caffeine with the centering influence that CBD brings to the table.
Simply knowing that you are actively working to improve your balance, such as taking CBD oil in the morning, can trigger the mind to become its healing tool.
Ritual therapy is a relatively new phenomenon that is being explored.
However, it is not surprising that rituals, particularly those centered on wellbeing, can have a positive effect on the mind and body.
There is research into how rituals can help the brain restore comfort, balance, and wellness.
Although the cannabis plant's potential has yet to be understood, there is no doubt that CBD oil has the ability to balance you.
When it comes to CBD, routine and consistency are essential. CBD's effects are only felt when consumed regularly.
We tend to be less anxious or stressed when we feel more secure and confident in our bodies and minds, and our overall well-being improves.
