Shilajit and CBD. The hidden Power and most kept Secret.
SHILAJIT (MUMIJO) and CBD
Shilajit is one of the East’s best-kept secrets. This is a rare plant-based mineral created during the formation of only 6 mountain ranges in the entire world. The reason it’s been hidden from the West for so long is most likely because there’s a limited supply of it, but something this good can’t remain hidden for very long. Westerners have brought Shilajit directly into the health market over the past five years, and the cannabis industry has only just discovered it in 2018.
Shilajit is typically found inside the cracks, crevices and caves of mountainous regions at high altitudes. The best quality Shilajit originates from the Altai and Himalayan ranges; both of which stand tall at impressive altitudes and are steeped in a rich cultural history that venerates this powerful supplement. Altai Shilajit is locally called mumiyo, mumijo, mumie, myemu, momio or mummy, which means "to save or preserve the body". It comes from the Altai Mountains, which span all the way from the West Siberian Plain to the Gobi Desert below Mongolia.
Using cannabis and Shilajit together
Shilajit has been found to contain a rare set of metabolites known as dibenzo-alpha-pyrones* ; these metabolites happen to play a direct role in cannabinoid synthesis. This means, it has the ability to deliver cannabinoids directly into your cannabinoid receptors and intensify your overall experience. Users have reported being satisﬁed after only consuming half of their normal amount of cannabis after taking Shilajit.
Most literature on the topic of using cannabis and Shilajit together is speculative but with good grounding. The two target some of the most vital components of the central nervous system, to the function of mood, stomach health and even muscle pain. When we consider the therapeutic potential of these two staples in herb-lore, there are a number of demographics that can benefit from this combined therapy.
CBD and shilajit for athletes
For athletes, maintaining physical health and performance is the number one priority. Hemp has only recently entered the picture for athletes, with CBD on the rise as a way to deal with recovery after training and competition. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why athletes swear by Shilajit, it’s for those exact reasons. Shilajit has been scientifically proven to speed up muscle recovery time* and decrease muscle fatigue post-workout.
When it comes to nutritional supplementation for athletes, it’s almost always preferred to go down the road of natural medicine. Combining these two natural substances can potentiate the effects of each other, helping to recover not only faster, but ultimately better.
There are virtually no side effects from using cannabis or Shilajit (at least that we know of), and there’s no threat of disturbance to any other vital organs.
Combined therapy for anxiety and depression
As mentioned earlier, both cannabis and Shilajit have an effect on the GABA-ergic system. This receptor is responsible for slowing down the central nervous system in times of over-excitement.
Neuronal excitement often ends in symptoms of anxiety, which the combined therapy of hemp and Shilajit may alleviate. GABA deficiencies might also play a role in major depression, something cannabis is well known for in both public opinion and the scientific community.
Shilajit promotes overall brain function which is also beneficial for those who suffer from mood disorders. Cognitive function is at the heart of productivity and physical wellbeing; while cannabis may help to reduce symptoms of anxiety, Shilajit may complement this by increasing productivity.
CBD and Shilajit are both anti-inflammatory
Inflammation is at the heart of many diseases that afflict the modern world, it’s almost impossible to list them all in a single article. Those who have fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer and asthma are almost always prescribed a kind of anti-inflammatory in the treatment of these conditions.
Whenever inflammation is left untreated, it can lead to any number of the diseases just mentioned and even more. Pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen can cause acute kidney problems after overexposure, which is why anti-inflammatories such as cannabis and Shilajit are always called into the picture as herbal alternatives.
In fact, one of cannabis’ most popular medical applications is its anti-inflammatory quality. Aside from being immunosuppressant, it is also immunoregulatory* and can even help inflammatory conditions of the liver. It is often recommended as a topical or internal treatment for those with rheumatoid arthritis. Shilajit too has demonstrated to have an anti-inflammatory effect on arthritis**.
The two used in tandem could suggest the most powerful anti-inflammatory team of herbs that we know about. This is increasingly important because many of the processed foods we consume in the Western world have inflammatory effects which can ultimately lead to cancers, diabetes and autoimmune diseases.
