About Hemp:

“Hemp is all relaxation without intoxication”

In many studies, it has been most affective to consume about 50mg of Hemp a day to see an improvement in your overall health. But Hemp is a natural plant, and it affects us all differently. We need lots of patience and trials, but definitely, it gives relief!
In China, Hemp started being researched for medicinal purposes in 2727 B.C
Since then, We discovered that we “humans” also are an Endocannabinoid system. Well, this system we are made of is like our bodies natural receptors for “balance” when receptors aren’t working properly. So, this is how now it will make more sense how we all have different reactions and experiences when we try Hemp for our first time.
Hemp isn’t psychoactive, Only its Recreational popular cousin is. We have CB1 and CB2 receptors all over our bodies. Hemp attaches more towards the CB2 receptors. They both have many benefits and since we are all different, this plant keeps teaching us more and more everyday.

Known Therapeutic benefits of Hemp so far:

Relieves pain, kills or slows bacteria growth, regulates blood sugar levels, reduces vomiting and nausea, reduces seizures and convulsions, reduces inflammation, reduces risk of artery blockage, inhibits tumor growth/cancer cells, nervous system protectant, suppresses muscle spasms, relieves anxiety, modulates the immune system, reduces spasms in the small intestines, tranquilizer, bone stimulant, non-psychoactive.

What is The Endocannabinoid System?

  • The endogenous cannabinoid system may be the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.
  • Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. They are found; In the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.
  • In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same; homeostasis – the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
  • Cannabinoid receptors are found all throughout the body. They are fixed in cell membranes, and are believed to be more numerous than any other receptor system.
  • When cannabinoid receptors are stimulated, a variety of physiologic processes occur.
  • So far, researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2 receptors.
  • CB1 is predominantly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs.
  • CB2 receptors are predominantly found in the immune system and its associated structures.
  • Many tissues also contain both receptors, each linked to a different action.

Hemp Oil, Why I choose it.

  • The oil that is produced from the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats), and only 9-11% of the less desired saturated fatty acids.
  • Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom.
  • Hemp seed oil contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linolei/LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids.
  • In addition, hemp seed oil also contains smaller amounts of 3 other polyunsaturated fatty acids in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid and stearidonic acid.
  • This makes hemp seed oil the most complete natural protein.
  • Hemp seed oil also provides a good amount of antioxidants such as Vitamin E, carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), phytosterols, phospholipids.
  • It is also abundant in minerals; including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc.
  • Hemp seed oil also provides a good source of chlorophyll.
