What is Homeostasis and why is it important for my health?




CBD for Homeostasis within the Body

Homeostasis is a term from the Greek words for “same” and “steady.” It refers to any process that living organisms use to maintain stable conditions within their bodies that are necessary for survival. It is an important process for humans, and when disrupted can cause serious issues. But what is homeostasis and how does CBD make a difference?

What is Homeostasis?

Homeostasis is the body’s ability to maintain a constant, stable state despite changes in external stimuli. In the human body, this includes the control of water levels, oxygen, pH, as well as body temperature. We rely on homeostasis to keep our body temperature balanced in order to properly function.

Why is Homeostasis Important?

In short, we all rely on homeostasis to keep our bodies in equilibrium and functioning at optimal performance.

When the cells in our bodies are not functioning correctly, homeostatic balance can be disrupted. Without proper homeostasis, your body temperature may plummet, causing your organ systems to struggle to do their jobs and possibly fail. 

Homeostasis and the Endocannabinoid System

You may have not been aware of it until now but your body has an Endocannabinoid System, yes yours! It is a network of receptors called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS),which helps us to maintain the equilibrium within our bodily functions.

The ECS has a series of receptors on cells throughout the body designed to react and bind with cannabinoids, like the CBD in our CBD Tinctures and Infused Gummies.There are two main types of receptors, cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2), that receive different types of cannabinoids.

The ECS plays a role in the immune system, the central nervous system, the brain, organs, connective tissue, and glands. The ECS is also involved in many physiological processes like appetite, sleep, digestion, mood, memory, metabolism, neuro-protection, hormones, and heart function. All of these functions are important to creating homeostatic balance in the body.
