In the 1990s, researchers discovered the human endocannabinoid system. Our nervous system consists of a chain of neurons that transmit signals from one place in the body to another. This research showed that many of our bodily functions are controlled by endocannabinoids in our brain and in many other organs. They do their job by binding to receptors in our body. The endocannabinoids and their associated receptors make up the endocannabinoid system.
The influence of the endocannabinoids in CBD oil can cause a positive reaction in the immune system. CBD stimulates and activates the cannabinoids in our body like a motor. In this way, CBD can enable our body to repair itself. This regulation system is also present in mammals, so CBD oil can also give a positive reaction in your pets.
Effect of CBD oil on your body (CB1 and CB2 receptors)
The effect of all types of phytocannabinoids in CBD oil has to do with the receptors in your body, an example of the most well-known receptors are the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 stands for Cannabinoid Binding receptor type 1. CB1 receptors are most common in the part of the brain responsible for pain perception, appetite, memory, emotions, sleep, coordination, movement and body temperature regulation. but also in the spinal cord.
The CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and in the arms and legs. The receptors can affect how the immune system works and can play a role in pain and tissue damage. It has been found that CBD oil can have an indirect positive effect on these receptors.
The production method of Vitea Mea CBD oil
All Vitea Mea CBD oil is produced with a CBD distillate based on CO2 extraction. This advanced CO2 extraction method ensures that the active ingredients are extracted from the plant. With CO2 extraction, the most active substances are included in the extract without the risk of (dangerous) residual solvents. Because this still contains a lot of plant remains that are not useful (or sometimes even with a bad taste), we have the extract distilled to retain as many active parts as possible without plant material.
We are not allowed to make medical claims for CBD products. This is laid down in European legislation and these laws apply to both producers and retailers. In addition, we are also not authorized to provide you with medical advice because we are not doctors. When in doubt about the use of CBD, we always recommend that you discuss this with your doctor.
For thousands of years, humans have been using the hemp plant for various purposes. According to the Vedas in India, hemp was one of the 5 holy plants and a guardian angel lived in its leaves. But also the Chinese, the Greeks and the Romans already mention the benefits of the plant.
Hemp can also be used for example for clothing, food or building materials and much more. Similarly, CBD oil.
In 2016, around the age of 34, Bechterew was diagnosed with me, this is a form of inflammatory rheumatism. Suddenly I was confronted with pains and inflammations that I have never experienced before.
On the advice of my rheumatism doctor, I started taking ibuprofen for three months, to be able to move my joints again without pain.
After taking ibuprofen for two and a half months, my stomach got so many complaints that I had to stop. Fortunately I was able to resume life reasonably well, but with a lot of trouble and tiredness every day.
I took paracetamol to go to work because of the major pain in my feet, my back and also my pelvis. After someone told me about CBD, I started using this and I noticed that I no longer needed the paracetamol to alleviate that same pain.
In recent years I have continued to use CBD and here too it seemed clear that if I took a certain dose, that inflammation seemed to stay away. Because of this I started experimenting a lot with CBD, I started trying different brands, different concentrations and the frequency of intake. This gave me the feeling that I had more control over my life again. The choice was therefore made quickly when I was given the opportunity in 2018 to run a store, that I should offer CBD here. To help others in the jungle of different CBD manufacturers and to share the right information with my customers.
