What is CBD?
Hemp contains the major non-psychoactive component known as Cannabidiol (CBD).
How does it work in the body?
Did you know that humans have their own ECS (Endocannabinoid System) in their bodies? Scientists uncovered this a mere 30 years ago! This ECS system is comprised of two types of receptors, C1 and CB2 that serve very distinct functions for our health and well-being such as appetite, immune function, metabolism of food, pain, sleep, memory, mood, digestion, inflammation and much more. Most importantly, it also provides a physiological response to illness.
Whenever there are deviations from homeostasis in the body's functions, the ECS system is activated and begins to respond accordingly by synthesizing endocannabinoids, acting as neurotransmitters. When the body does this, they are picked up by specialized cannabinoid receptors, which sit on the surface of cells. These receptors can be found in a range of places such as the immune system, organs and glands, connective tissue and most significantly, the brain.
Like a key fits into a lock, the endocannabinoids interact with these receptors and send information about adjusting conditions to move the body back into homeostasis (balance) within the body despite outside influences.
What does this mean for me?
Different receptors respond differently to different receptors. CB1 receptors are more prevalent in the central nervous system and are linked to benefits such as:
- Modulation of stress and anxiety
- Increased appetite
- Decreased nausea
- Balance of immune system
- Inhibition of tumors
CB2 receptors are found most commonly in the immune system and help fight inflammation and damage to tissue. Some cells contain both types of receptors, each responsible for a different function.
So the bottom line is...
A high quality, phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil can help bring homeostasis back to the body. Our goal is to provide specific plant-based nutrients in a premium Hemp Oil product that can not only be a safe alternative to traditional prescription drugs and pain-killers but can encourage optimal health by maximizing the body's own endocannabinoid system, a system we believe to be vital to long-term health and wellness.
