SESH Intention: How Does It Work

You may be familiar with Spiritual, Cleansing, or Intention sprays, which might be compared to burning herbs and diffusing oils in a range of ritual uses. But you may not know of the scientific rationale for some of them rooted in our biology that we might benefit from.

Research has shown you can cause healing in your body simply by thinking positive intent. This is the basis behind the “placebo effect,” a phenomenon so powerful that even the effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs are measured against it as the “gold standard” of studies. Just the expectation of a benefit and the accompanying belief it will happen will bring about that effect, in many cases!

What’s particularly fascinating is that the scientific literature indicates the effectiveness of positive intent is at least partly influenced by the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which has two main types of receptors. This is what Cannanda Sesh is all about.

It's a potent and inviting natural fragrance enhanced with the Cannanda CB2 Wellness Blend, which features beta-caryophyllene, which works with the ECS's CB2 receptors. It’s postulated that this enables more anandamide - a 'feel-good' endocannabinoid that our bodies produce naturally - to be available for the CB1 receptors. Research has shown that the CB1 receptor “tone” is a key factor in this “mind over matter” phenomenon.

Studies further suggest that there is a delicate balance between too little and too much. The success rate of positive intent is higher when your ECS is healthy (versus when it's dysfunctional and unhealthy). Yet these studies have also shown that excessive activation of CB1 receptors can diminish the likelihood of success.

This is where cedar essential oil plays an important role in this blend. It’s high in thujone, a terpene that was traditionally thought to be an activator of CB1 receptors. Subsequent research has shown very weak binding to CB1 receptors, which might explain how thujone might “tone” the CB1 receptors without causing tolerance (tolerance develops from excessive or chronic CB1 activation).
