We’re going to travel into our physiology right into our central nervous system and we’re going to see at the level of the individual that the cell’s surface is covered with these green receptors.
These are receptors for cbd and when the CBD binds to that receptor, it sends a message into the cell which travels all the way down into the nucleus of the cell, where the intelligence of our entire physiology is contained within our chromosomes. So here a chromosome is going to unwind and you’re going to see the actual DNA that contains the codes for everything that our body does. This is like the software that runs our physiology. Genes are the codes for every protein that our bodies make, including all the signaling molecules that run our physiology, such as our neurotransmitters that run our nervous system, our hormones that are run our endocrine system in our cytokines that run our immune system. So imagine for instance, that these are cells in your pancreas making insulin. This is happening, and a million cells, let’s say, all producing huge amounts of insulin to keep your blood sugars in proper balance.
Again, your insulin is a hormone which is a protein. So we see that throughout our physiology. We have receptors specifically designed to bind with CBD and CBD has its effect on the nucleus of our cells where proteins are being made. So which proteins are being made from the influence of CBD. CBD modulates the transcriptions of over 1000, 100 genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system and throughout our immune system restoring home. You say, sister, both are immune and to our central nervous systems. So as you can see on the left side of the slide, cbd upregulates the genes that create anti-inflammatory biochemicals for our, our immune system and upregulates the Gaba system in our central nervous system, which brings calmness to our central nervous system. And on the right side of the slide, we can see that CBD downregulates, the genes that create the inflammatory biochemicals.
And our immune system and also downregulates the glutamate system in our central nervous system which causes overexcitation. So now let’s go back to the model of our physiology and see how cbd affects it. We’d go back to our one star that’s out of whack and now we introduce cbd. And while, uh, we see a cascade going through all the points of balance in our system and the mobile comes back to homeostasis to its original stable, beautiful balance. Now our physiological systems are far more complex than a simple mall bio that I’ve been showing you here with only 12 stars. For instance. Our immune system has 350 different signaling molecules on it. So it’s an enormous mobile, which also explains why there are so many unintended drug interactions because if you affect any one of those little stars is going to shift all 350 of those other stars and who could possibly figure that out.
So in fact, here’s what our immune system actually looks like. And of course, when you introduce cbd to are amazingly complex physiology in the immune system, the cascade of homeostasis trickles down through all 350 of those stars. It’s a beautiful thing. Bottom line, cbd causes a cascade of homeostasis through our entire central nervous system in our entire immune system. So why is this happening? Because as I mentioned before, we have receptors in our physiology for cbd. This is called the Endocannabinoid system. Back in medical school. We didn’t even know about the endocannabinoid system. It was only discovered in the 19 nineties by Dr Raphael Mechoulam from the Hebrew University in Israel. We’re an amazing amount of incredible biomedical technology. Innovations are coming from that tiny little country. So the Endocannabinoid system is a network of cells throughout our body that have receptors for cbd. In fact, there are more receptors for cbd in our body than any other kind of receptor.
So the endocannabinoid system is truly the largest network of its kind throughout our entire physiology. Among other things, Dr. Coolum also discovered that we make our own cannabinoids in our body. This is a Nanda myed and to age and randomized is something that we create when we’re meditating. Hence it’s called the bliss molecule and to age as well as Amanda might are released in Mother’s milk when a child is breastfeeding, so no wonder that child is so calm and happy when they’re breastfeeding. Those two compounds are also associated with a runner’s high. You know that point when you’re running and suddenly you’re in bliss, you kind of break through the wall and now you just feel wonderful. Those two, our natural cannabinoids that our own bodies make and bind to our cbd receptors, so here we have our cbd receptors in our central nervous system and in our cardiovascular system where immune cells are constantly circulating, of course, in our bone marrow where the cells are actually manufactured and of course in our immune organs are major immune that Oregon’s are the intestines, the spleen, and the bladder.
