CBD is perhaps most well-known for its benefits to the brain. Previously we have discussed issues like sleep, mood, stress, anxiety and inflammation. These are powerful and significant all on their own. But research and experience is revealing that CBD has profound benefits throughout the body. Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors are found in abundance in the gut.
What is emerging in the science is that the ECS receptors are found throughout the body but especially in the brain and gut is where most of the heavy lifting is done. This connection between the brain and the gut has emerged to be one of the most important realizations of the past decade. We even hear of the gut referred to as the second brain. And we know when the gut is out of sorts, our whole system suffers.
In this interview Miles Sarill discusses the emerging science of CBD and he brings together some very interesting and important points. One of the most important points is that not all industrial hemp is the same. Therefore CBD extracts from different strains yields different compounds. Not all extracts are the same. Here is a link to a recent study comparing extracts from 4 different strains of industrial hemp. The results reveal that one strain, Futura 75, gave the best results compared to the other 3 strains. Futura 75 is a strain used by CV Sciences. This is not a coincidence. The best extracts come from the best strains.
The main focus of this interview is CBD for gut health. Miles reveals that the gut contains many CBD receptors sites and the influence of CBD in the gut is profound. As always, we are considering the nutritional influences of CBD to help the body function more normally.
