Read on.
Are your emotions all over the place? Do you have trouble sleeping and keep turning in bed all night? Do you constantly have crying spells? If the answer to the 2 of these 3 questions is a resounding yes, then chances are that you probably have an imbalance; a hormonal imbalance.
Hormonal imbalances are common and levels fluctuate every now and then. Think of hormones as the chemical carriers that tell your organs what to do, and when to do. When there is too much or too little of these chemical carriers, there are effects like mood swings, behaviour changes or something slightly more adverse like growth or reproduction issues.
However, there is good news that the CBD fraternity is presenting to all those who are victims of this abnormality, and it is that CBD can help you restore hormonal imbalance.
How CBD Can Help You
CBD works by binding with key receptors present as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is an integral part of the human body and has control and links to several functions of the body. Functions like the immune response, your mood and behaviour, and more importantly your endocrine system also is linked to your endocannabinoid system. CBD binds onto two important receptors of the ECS which are the CB1 and the CB2 receptors. This is what causes the CBD effects to come into play.
The binding causes a reorientation of the endocrine system which in turn controls major hormones like cortisol, melatonin and insulin. The central nervous system becomes less active, in the sense that the rate of nerve impulses firing are toned down. This soothes your body and causes you to become more relaxed. Your mood swings don’t happen all that often and your behaviour is more docile. In essence, your body reaches a state of homeostasis (balance) when CBD is brought into the equation.
If you are someone who is susceptible to these mood swings, then simply try your hand at CBD. Chances are that it will help you.
