CBD – Manuka Honey collaboration as a preventative medicine
Thousands of years ago ancient doctors and healers across the world utilized the medicinal benefits of CBD. Latterly modern science has shed light on the biological processes behind the healing, and how the plants natural chemicals interact with our body.
In the mid 1990’s Raphael Mechoulam from Israel identified the significance of the human endocannabinoid system; the endocannabinoid system is a communications system in the brain and other parts of our body. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is integral to the way that our immune system regulates itself and maintains a healthy balance.
A recent discovery of the endogenous chemical transmitters, found that it is involved in maintaining overall health. The endogenous cannabinoids (naturally occurring within the body) and their receptors are found throughout the body, brain, skin, glands, connective tissues, and immune cells. Compounds in CBD are similar to the chemicals created naturally in our bodies, cannabinoids integrate easily into the body fluently. Making CBD an effective general preventative medicine, protecting the body against the damages of sickness, and aging. A leading scientist Bradley E. Algar holds a PHD from Harvard in experimental psychology studied the endocannabinoid system noted “With complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and virtually all of the body’s organs, the endocannabinoids are literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system, we begin to see a mechanism that could that connect brain activity and states of physical health and disease.”
The diet and lifestyle common in developed Western nations increases the risk of heart disease or stroke. A 2013 study analyzed data from 4652 participants on the effect of CBD on metabolic systems, found that currents users had higher levels of good cholesterol “high -density lipoprotein (HDL-C)”. A high active Manuka Honey a line with CBD, in it being another natural preventative medicine. Antioxidants found in Manuka Honey have found to preserve the quality of blood, preventing heart disease in the process. Honey being rich in glucose provides energy in the blood stream, improving blood flow throughout the body, reducing the workload on the heart and preventing visible capillary damage.
Manuka Honey’s antioxidants and CBD have both been found to reduce the likelihood of cancer cell formation. In 2012 a study showed animals treated with CBD were less likely to develop colon cancer after being induced with carcinogens. Both honey and CBD can be consumed to reduce the chance of internal cancers or applied topically for skin cancer.
Skin is exposed daily to free radicals like UV rays and environmental pollutants. When CBD and Manuka honey are applied topically as an infused lotion, balm, soak or scrub the antioxidants and antibacterial properties in both can repair damage, moisturize, promote faster healing, a treatment and preventative method for skin issues such as psoriasis and acne.
