Is Cannabis the Bullet Proof Biohack Your Body’s Been Missing?

The human body is a complex machine, and for many in the modern world it’s running on the wrong type of fuel. Until the relatively recent (in evolutionary terms) advent of agriculture, foraging societies (a.k.a. hunter/gatherers) thrived on a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Combined with all the exercise required just to survive in those pre-historic days, it made for a healthy balance, one that you can recreate today by following a “paleo” diet and hitting the gym.

After all, that’s the routine our bodies evolved to support over many millennia, and while times (and menus) may have changed, our internal workings have not. So if you’re currently overloaded on refined white flour and refined white sugar, it may be time to investigate a new way of intaking your nutrients, one that provides your body with the optimal energy it needs without the “empty calories” of excess starches and sugars.

And how does cannabis fit into all of this?

According to a recent article in the British Journal of Pharmacology, entitled “Cannabimimetic phytochemicals in the diet – an evolutionary link to food selection and metabolic stress adaptation” our body’s natural endocnnabinoid system works best in conjunction with a low-carb, high-fat diet, a combination that may facilitate “increased energy intake and decreased energy expenditure by controlling neural pathways.”

So if you’re already a cannabis consumer, a low-carb, high-fat diet will help you get the most out of the plant’s healing and therapeutic potential, and if you’re already on a paleo diet, adding cannabinoids into the mix could help optimize how that diet is processed and made bioavailable.

“The endocannabinoid system, an ancient biological signaling network, regulates numerous physiological processes, including intestinal function, glucose metabolism, and the stress response,” notes leading cannabis researcher and historian Martin Lee. “A dysregulated endocannabinoid system is implicated in metabolic and bowel pathologies and many other diseases.”

That means integrating cannabis into your paleo diet is the one biohack that can boost all of your body’s systems, by bolstering the underlying regulating functions of the endocannabinoid system, which in turn helps maintain health and vitality in the digestive, cardiovascular, muscular, and nervous systems.

Cannabis is even bulletproof, as confirmed by Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof and author of New York Times bestseller The Bulletproof Diet, who says he’s personally tried putting CBD (one of the plant’s medicinal compounds) in his Bulletproof Coffee while onboard “a vessel 200 miles offshore, in international waters.” Asprey examined both proven benefits and potential drawbacks to cannabis, before determining that the plant is most definitely “bulletproof” in his expert opinion.

“The short answer is that, for some people, used properly, cannabis can be really beneficial,” Asprey wrote in an online essay. “The good news is, a lot of the new delivery systems and cannabinoid extracts make it easier than ever to biohack your pot so you get the good without most of the bad.”

At Jambo, we believe cannabis is itself an incredible super food, and that’s why we offer products designed to integrate CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids into your diet. Increasing the biohacking power of CBD by combining it with MCT oil enables more efficient absorbtion of cannabinoids into your body, where it transforms into increased support for mitochondrial production and activity, which seems to aid in weight loss and healthy metabolism.
