Our passion for education in this industry is what we are all about. There are so many companies out there just selling product and trying their best to educate but it isn't a simple process. As a consumer, customer or patient, you really need to understand more of what is in the products, how they will work for your specific needs, if there will be a problem when using with other medications, how your body with react, what application is best for you, etc. That is just the tip of the iceberg......
CBD’s Emerging Role in Managing Some Covid-19 Symptoms
Since Covid-19 vaccines are not available to everyone yet, wearing masks and practicing social distancing remains imperative.
However, in the event of an infection, it’s good to know what you can do at home to manage some symptoms of the Coronavirus.
But first, it helps to have a rudimentary understanding of what Covid-19 is and how it works.
HOW COVID-19 FUNCTIONS
The spiked proteins of the coronavirus attach themselves to healthy cells, particularly within the lungs at ACE2 receptors. This essential acts as a cellular doorway which Covid-19 can enter our system. Eventually, the virus will take command and begin killing healthy cells within the lungs and respiratory system. From there, the virus will travel to your ears, nose and throat, and the rest of your respiratory system.
The Coronavirus goes deeper into your respiratory system than the common cold because there are more ACE2 receptors in the lower airways. And therein lies the threat; because Covid-19 penetrates deep – it can impact our ability to breathe as well as lead to potential complications.
These complications include:
Shortness of Breath
And Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)
HOW CBD MIGHT HELP
Due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to decrease tension between blood vessel walls, CBD is ideal for managing some Covid-19 symptoms. CBD is also believed to “reduce ace2 expression and pro cytokine production.”
While more research is necessary, CBD appears to be emerging as a solid tool in the fight against Covid-19, capable of naturally bolstering lung strength and reducing inflammation.
COVID-19 isn’t going away just yet, so it’s important to keep wearing a mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hands! If you or someone you know does become positive for this coronavirus, it’s possible that CBD could be your ally in managing some upper respiratory symptoms.
Understanding Cannabis: a complex collection of healing compounds: Society has many different names like Cannabis, "Marijuana", Hemp, "Weed" and many more.
Cannabis Sativa is the proper biological classification of the overarching species. Think of apples. Apples are the species of fruit. Within that species, there are many different types of apples ranging in color, taste, smell, size, etc. Same with trees. A tree is part of the plant species, but hundreds of subspecies or varieties of trees are within that species.
Within the Cannabis Sativa species, there are three main separate subspecies: sativia, indica, and ruderalis (hemp). These subspecies are determined according to the specific, differing levels of constituents and molecules within each plant.
What makes cannabis unique are cannabinoids which work within our ECS. The level of interaction depends on three major points: Saturation, known as the concentration
Diversity of the constituents, known as the formulation
Potency, referred to as dosage
All three points refer to the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
The Entourage Effect: Working in harmony with your body.......
The plant's full medicinal value comes from having as many of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flovonoids, lipids, waxes, and more available for your body to use as it needs yo obtain homeostasis.
This coordinated response is what the "entourage effect" refers to the synergy of all compounds to modulate your ECS and create balance in your body. With this aim for balance, your body can heal.
