Balancing Your Endocannabinoid System Leads To Happiness

Balancing Your Endocannabinoid System Leads To Happiness

 Living a happy life involves a holistic approach where supplements, food, and exercise are essential. Each component contributes uniquely to overall well-being, influencing physical health, mental clarity, and emotional stability. Many are enjoying various types of Cannabis extracts and Hemp products but have yet to learn about their Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and its intricate balance - and even more so, how to gain and obtain that instead of fighting all the labels we gain through the maze of healthcare. 

Here's why incorporating these elements is crucial:

Nutrition and Food

Proper nutrition is the foundation of good health. The foods we eat provide the energy and nutrients our bodies need to function optimally. A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can improve brain function, boost energy levels, and enhance immune system performance. 

Eating well can also directly affect our mood; for instance, certain foods, like those rich in omega-3 fatty acids or antioxidants, can help reduce the symptoms of depression. 

This is one reason that I, as the Researcher OG, heavily suggest that people start their day with a 'Sunshine dose' of cannabinoids instead of THC right off the bat. Many find that taking a dose of an oil such as MC BSO with their morning coffee gives them the energy to exercise that morning. Then it's time for a new regiment that the OG calls "walk and bake" - keeping the body in movement instead of depressing the central nervous system with THC first thing in the morning. 

I've practiced wake and bake for the last 4 decades, and it worked well to handle people, handle life, and feel good - but it always required me to burn more THC at lunch and again later in the day. I've always loved weed, so that's not a bad thing to me, but I got to the point where I could smoke 1/2 oz to my head a day, so I figured out how to control the balance of the Endocannabinoid System.




While a balanced diet is ideal, supplements can play a crucial role in filling nutritional gaps, especially when certain nutrients are complex to obtain from food alone. For example, Vitamin D, essential for bone health and immune function, is difficult to get in sufficient amounts from food, so supplementation might be necessary, especially in regions with less sunlight. Additionally, supplements like probiotics can support gut health, which is closely linked to mental health through the gut-brain axis.

"What we've found is that certain types of plant extracts are 100% natural and contain components of the flower or bud that we haven't identified yet - now that's a truly next-level natural way to get happy, get balanced, and make the ECS do the Twist like Elvis Presley is playing in the background, it's all so exciting to think about a way to supplement the THC world while offering people who don't want it the finest of ways to gain things they can't get in their food." 

Physical activity is a powerful mood enhancer and stress reliever. Regular exercise helps release endorphins, often called the body's natural "feel-good" chemicals - and releases the endocannabinoid Anandamide. It helps create all 8 of those internal cannabinoids we need. It also helps manage weight, strengthen muscles and bones, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Exercise can improve sleep patterns and, over time, can lead to enhanced self-esteem and reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Combination for Enhanced Effect

Good nutrition, appropriate supplements, and regular physical activity can synergistically enhance overall health. For example, exercise helps burn calories and build muscle and improves the absorption of nutrients from food. Similarly, the right supplements can help optimize the energy you derive from food and improve your physical performance and recovery.

Mental and Emotional Health

Finally, maintaining a balance of these elements promotes not just physical health but also mental and emotional well-being. A lifestyle that includes diverse and nutritious food, necessary supplements, and regular physical activity contributes to a more stable mood, sharper cognitive functions, and a lower risk of mental health disorders.



Living a balanced life with the right mix of nutrients, supplements, and exercise isn't just about preventing illness—it's about optimizing your well-being, enhancing your quality of life, and finding joy in everyday activities—it's about maximizing what your ECS can do for you.

Endocannabinoid Balance (ECS Balance) Causes Happiness

Balancing the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is crucial for maintaining overall wellness, especially for those who frequently use THC. The Researcher OG and Genevieve's product lines are created to address this need. These products are designed to support and enhance the natural function of the ECS, which is vital for those seeking a balanced and fulfilling life.

Anandamide and Bliss

Central to the discussion of ECS balance is Anandamide (AEA), commonly referred to as the "bliss molecule." Anandamide is named after the Sanskrit word for bliss, "ananda." This endocannabinoid is naturally produced in the body and is crucial in regulating mood, happiness, fear, anxiety, and stress. Its structure and behavior in the ECS are remarkably similar to that of THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis.

How Researcher OG Oils Enhance Anandamide Functioning

I've worked meticulously formulated for the past 8 years to enhance the performance of Anandamide and other endocannabinoids within the ECS. By doing so, they also indirectly improve the effects of THC, ensuring that it provides its benefits without leading to imbalance or diminishing returns often experienced with prolonged THC use. Here's how these products work:

Enhancement of Natural ProductionCertain elements of nature have been found to help increase the natural production of Anandamide. By fostering an environment where Anandamide levels are optimized, these oils help maintain a constant state of well-being.

Inhibition of BreakdownThese products may contain ingredients that inhibit the breakdown of Anandamide, thereby increasing its availability and activity within the ECS. This prolonged action helps in sustaining its blissful effects.

Receptor ActivationTHC binds primarily to the same receptors as Anandamide (CB1 receptors). As the Researcher OG, I design oils to facilitate the optimal activation of these receptors, enhancing the effects of both natural and plant cannabinoids.

 Anandamide and How it Helps You: The Impact on Lifestyle

When Anandamide is supported and the ECS is balanced, individuals often experience enhanced well-being. Here are some of the ways people enjoy life when they are happy and their ECS is in balance:

Improved Mood: Regular and balanced Anandamide levels can lead to a consistently better mood and a positive outlook on life.

Reduced Anxiety and Stress: Enhanced Anandamide levels are associated with lower anxiety and stress, making daily challenges more manageable.

Better Sleep: A balanced ECS can contribute to more regular sleep patterns, which is crucial for overall health and well-being.

Enhanced Pleasure and Reward: Anandamide regulates the pleasure and reward systems in the brain, which can improve the enjoyment of daily activities.

Pain Management: By modulating pain, Anandamide can improve the quality of life for chronic pain patients.

Many have found that Researcher OG's line of oils focuses on enhancing Anandamide levels and activity, not only making daily THC use more effective but also contributing to a happier, more balanced life. It's all about the Endocannabinoids when it comes to their receptor activity, growth, and maximizing our cannabis experience. 

This approach is crucial for anyone looking to maintain a sustainable and beneficial relationship with cannabinoids, ensuring that natural supplements like Anandamide and THC continue to enhance life's quality without adverse effects.
