As a young man, I reached out to Cannabis to numb. I got beyond that, and discovered that this plant has advantages for the long term health of my mind, supporting the retention of my faculties.
What caught me off guard was its effect on my digestive tract.
As a student of Yoga, I had long been observing my diet through the lens of Ayurveda. This life science is over 5000 years old and works well alongside the practice of Yoga; both begin with paying attention. Stretched over years, this act of observation identified a few things food wise that did not agree with my body.
In Ayurveda, different body types are interpreted based on the elements they’re derived from. Different combinations of fire, air and a muddy oil like mixture combine, of all three, which you are defined. Fire is Pitta, Air is Vata, and the mud/oil combination is Kapha.
The environment around you is full of these elements. In the place you live, combinations inspire different balances within your experience of body and mind. Ayurveda works to compliment your body’s balance within the environment you live in, so you can be the most efficient and balanced you.
Imbalances in these mixtures create tendencies towards type. For example, A person with an active mind that jumps from thought to thought, might be additionally challenged on a windy day. For myself, smoking so much marijuana certainly aggravated my Kaphic tendencies, creating a slower digestion, passive mind and a challenge to motivate me to do things that were social. As a side bar, it was at the heart of this that I preferred to smoke sativa, a heady stone and not indica, which was more of a body focus.
Ama is an Ayurvedic concept: not all food eaten is digested. Accumulations along the digestive tract buildup, resulting in inflammation and bloating.
Within minutes of taking Prime My Body’s Hemp Oil, I noted the gurgling in my gut.
Prime My Body’s Hemp Oil CBD is a formulated, nanotechnology enhanced product, that bypass’ the metabolic process, being absorbed directly into the blood stream from beneath the tongue. This is significant in that within minutes, the product is making an impact at a cellular level.
If you take a tablet of Vitamin C and 100% of that tablet reaches your bloodstream, that product is said to be 100% Bioavailable. Tests within the market note that due to the metabolic process taking place in the stomach and liver, in most cases, only 4-12% of pharmaceutical grade CBD products are reaching your blood stream. Due to the nano enhanced, liposomal delivery system that is unique to Prime My Body’s Hemp Oil, 100% of the Oil you ingest makes it to your cells.
And that’s what was causing the release in my gut.
Hemp Oil CBD can function as an anti spasmodic for the small intestine, and that was my experience. Those first ten days of using the Oil, I had four digestive purges that were prolific, the equivalent of multiple colonic experiences. I noticed a condensation of my abdominal cavity and experienced the change in my ability to forward fold and twist in yogic postures.
Recent discoveries of the Endocannabinoid system reveal that receptors exist within the Gastrointestinal tract. A study I read on PubMed details that Hemp Oil CBD functions as an anti spasmodic on the small intestine. I presume that the whole of my digestive tract released it’s grip on things I was done holding on to. I shed undigested food matter that I had been carrying for who knows how long and that felt like a return to me, to being healthy and whole.
90% of nutrients the body uses to function are absorbed in the small intestine. I felt lighter and happier having that material out of the way of a healthy, optimal absorption.
And still, the greatest surprise was yet to arrive.
