This is me saying get off your butt and start moving!!
Ooooo guess what! I started BURN Bootcamp six weeks ago, so I’ve been walking the talk y’all. I have my first weigh in and measurement check this Friday… and I hope that my commitment to working out 4-5x a week at BURN, plus all the dietary changes… shows me some results!
One of the best ways to enhance our Endocannabinoid System outside of using CBD or Phytocannabinoids (Delta 9/THC, CBDa, CBG, CBN, CBC ) are activities and enhancing foods.
Did you know that exercise, social interaction, meditation, voluntary and enjoyable physical activity, petting animals (preferably fluffy puppies), breathing exercises and massage (hellloooo self-care spa day) all stimulate the Endocannabinoid System?
Ever heard of runners high? Everyone thought it was endorphins but that is actually not true! That is your Endocannabinoid system. Research shows that endorphins do not pass the blood-brain barrier. That relaxed post-run feeling are instead due to endocannabinoids — biochemical substances similar to cannabis but naturally produced by the body. Exercise increases the levels of endocannabinoids in the bloodstream!
In a research study using trained male college students running on a treadmill or cycling on a stationary bike for 50 minutes at 70–80% of maximum heart rate, it found that exercise of moderate intensity dramatically increased concentrations of anandamide in blood plasma. And guess what anandamide is? The bliss molecule. Ananda comes from Sanskrit and means joy or bliss. Not high…. It also means the highest state of the individual self.
Here are some healthy and natural ways you can boost your endocannabinoid system:
- Increase Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
- Exercise Regularly.
- Manage Stress Better.
- Lower Alcohol Consumption.
- Use Phytocannabinoids.
So there you have it. Science is once again telling you to get up and move. There is something for all of us and if you’re in pain or injured, let’s get you healed up so you can live you best life, okay? Okay!
