Forward thinking seniors

Octavia Wellness was built with seniors in mind.  Pharma is big.  They medicate all of us and particularly seniors.  We have all seen our Grandparents take multiple pills a day for a variety of ailments including pain.  Cannabis research has been stalled for years because of lobbyists and Conservatives behind the Pharma world.  Change is happening and although many doctors are still anti-Cannabis, we will see that shift over the next decade and that is a good thing.

We are finding out that cannabis can treat so many conditions.  A friend sent me the information below the other day.  There is a lot to learn from this.  This video above shows that some seniors have already figured it out, that using cannabis products vs pharma is making a huge difference in their lives.  I am an investor in Octavia Wellness and I am a big fan of how they are changing the world, one product and one person at a time.

Endocannabinoid system (ECS). This little-known network of receptors and compounds is found in every mammal and maintains the body’s equilibrium — regulating things like sleep, pain, appetite, immune function, reproduction, neurogenesis, and stress.

Think of it like a series of locks and keys throughout your body. The locks (or internal receptors) are everywhere, waiting for their keys (or cannabinoids) to come along.

The key might arrive in the form of an endocannabinoid, produced naturally by the body. On the other hand, it might arrive as a phytocannabinoid (THC or CBD) found naturally in cannabis. Endo- and phytocannabinoids actually stimulate the body in the same way. 

While cannabis has been used for thousands of years, scientists only discovered the endocannabinoid system in 1992. This marked the first time we understood why cannabis works.

Thanks to these advancements, hmbldt formulas are designed with carefully extracted phytocannabinoids (and terpenes) that work with the body’s ECS. And today, the plant remains a safe and effective tool to help treat anything from insomnia to anxiety and epilepsy to PTSD.
