If you have anxiety, depression, chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, or any of these ailments, you could be suffering from clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD).
CECD is a malfunction of your endocannabinoid system (ECS), which works with your central nervous system and your immune system to ensure that your body is functioning properly. While each system is important, the ECS is the least well known of the three. To understand how CECD affects your overall health, it’s important to know how your ECS works.
Essentially, your ECS is composed of neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids, which bind to G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) known as Cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid 2 (CB2). CB1 and CB2 are concentrated in your central nervous system and your immune system, respectively. Cannabinoid receptors have a positive impact on physical health issues, such as cancer and muscular dystrophy, as well as on mental health issues that manifest as physical symptoms. Chronic anxiety, depression, and PTSD are all mental illnesses that have corresponding physical ailments, such as insomnia and fatigue. Thus, replenishing or reproducing your body’s endocannabinoids can treat a multitude of seemingly unrelated mental and physical health issues simultaneously.
Studies show that cannabis compounds, like cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), closely mimic endocannabinoids, causing them to bind to your body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors. This means that using prescribed doses of medical cannabis can reap the same benefits as naturally occurring endocannabinoids, minus the harmful effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
The first-ever prescription cannabis, Idrasil™, was created by C3® International to treat ongoing health concerns and improve quality of life. Available in measurable 12.5-mg, 25-mg, and 100-mg doses, Idrasil is the only medical cannabis that contains the full spectrum of naturally occurring cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. The non-addictive, non-euphoric prescription can replace a variety of medications by treating multiple symptoms of CECD simultaneously.
If you or a loved one suffers from chronic pain or ongoing medical issues, CECD could be the problem. Find out if you have CECD here.
