I had a hard time getting to sleep. Sometimes I would lay there for hours and finally get up and do something because I couldn’t get to sleep. My doctor prescribed a pill. I tried it for a couple months and it didn’t work. So my doctor gave me Mirtazapine. It did work. Maybe too good because I was groggy when I woke up. Then I Googled Mirtazapine and found out I shouldn’t be taking it at all so I quit. It is an anti-depressant. It messes with your brain. I read a lot of bad stuff. Nothing good.
I had started taking cbd oil under my tongue everyday more as a preventative than anything else. I had learned that the body has cbd receptors and that the body was designed to take cbd and in fact, even manufactures it.
Cannabinoid receptors, located throughout the body, are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory.
Cannabinoid receptors are of a class of cell membrane receptors in the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. As is typical of G protein-coupled receptors, the cannabinoid receptors contain seven transmembrane spanning domains. Cannabinoid receptors are activated by three major groups of ligands: endocannabinoids, produced by the mammillary body; plant cannabinoids (such as cannabidiol, produced by the cannabis plant); and synthetic cannabinoids (such as HU-210). All of the endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids (plant based cannabinoids) are lipophilic, such as fat soluble compounds.
There are currently two known subtypes of cannabinoid receptors, termed CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptor is expressed mainly in the brain (central nervous system or “CNS”), but also in the lungs, liver and kidneys. The CB2 receptor is expressed mainly in the immune system and in hematopoietic cells. Mounting evidence suggests that there are novel cannabinoid receptors that is, non-CB1 and non-CB2, which are expressed in endothelial cells and in the CNS. In 2007, the binding of several cannabinoids to the G protein-coupled receptor GPR55 in the brain was described.
So basically, if I am not taking cbd then I may not be as healthy as I could be.
And then I realized that I had been getting to sleep with no problem. I had stopped taking the sleeping pills. But I had started taking CBD Oil. Then I realized something else. I hadn’t had a charley horse in a long time either. Since about the time I started taking cbd oil in both cases. A few more months went by. No trouble sleeping and no charley horses.
CBD Oil is natural. An extract from a plant that God made. No side effects. No dependency. Cheaper than a doctor visit.
The reason I started taking cbd wasn’t that I thought or knew I needed it. I had heard a lot of stories about cbd and how it was a miracle in a bottle. Actually, the reason I started buying it was because I wanted to earn a little extra money. Everybody is talking about cbd. So I took a free tour to see what the business was about and it seemed like something I could do. You can take a FREE Tour, also.
