My guest this week is Dr. Hyla Cass. Dr. Hyla Cass is a nationally recognized expert and educator in integrative medicine and psychiatry. She is board-certified in psychiatry and neurology (ABPN) as well as in integrative and holistic medicine (ABIHM).

But in this episode, we chat about another area of her expertise, the numerous health benefits of Hemp oil extract / CBD.

We take a deep dive into how the endocannabinoid system (ECS) works to heal the body and how to stimulate it through the use of cannabinoids such as CBD.

How the Endocannabinoid System Works

The ECS system maintains homeostasis in your body by assessing all other systems and adjusting function accordingly to allow your body to heal as it was designed to do.

The ECS helps the body calm down by regulating the nervous system and the flight-fight response. This reduces stress and eases intracellular communication, which is the primary driver of healing.

Even though the body is able to produce its own cannabinoids, due to the lifestyle we lead and our deficient nutrition, we don't have nearly enough to stimulate healing.

Is CBD Oil Safe

CBD oil, hemp oil, medical marijuana/cannabis have been studied for a long time for their health benefits and potential side effects.

As Dr. Hyla states in this episode, what went wrong with the cannabis plant was that breeders bred the plant to have higher levels of THC, the psychoactive substance which gives us the high feeling. Full-spectrum CBD oil has minimal levels of THC and won't make us high.

For dosage, the best strategy is to start low and slow. Take a few drops and listen to how your body responds. Then you can adjust accordingly while monitoring some target symptoms to notice any difference.

Using CBD oil would be a good maintenance and overall wellness approach regardless of symptoms Damon Ernst
