A few factors play a vital role in helping people maintain their healthy cannabinoid levels and prevent the ECS from going out of balance. Some of them include:
- Decreasing inflammation
- Having a healthy gut
- Getting a good sleep
- Reducing stress
The reason behind healthcare experts and Ayurveda doctors prescribing Cannabis is that this herb alone takes care of the factors mentioned above and provides a holistic approach to have a healthy ECS. It contains hundreds of beneficial chemical compounds. When consumed under the doctor’s guidance, this herb provides the body with necessary cannabinoid supply to help decrease the cannabinoid deficiency. These Phyto-Cannabinoids then bind to the cannabinoid receptors present in the ECS and activate them to produce the desired medical benefits in the system.
As per Dr. Russo’s paper, conditions caused by CED like migraine, fibromyalgia, and IBS can be considered homeostatic disorders. Since CED causes homeostatic imbalance, the disorders’ symptoms worsen and become treatment resistant. Hence, if one wants to establish homeostasis, treating CED with effective cannabinoid-rich medications like Cannabis becomes more important than alleviating the consequent disorders.
