Our body’s quest for balance
We all crave balance in our lives. On a physical level, our naturally intelligent bodies are designed to maintain homeostasis and function optimally.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) has a huge role in this quest for equilibrium. Made up of cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids (produced by our organisms), it is responsible for regulating vital functions such as sleep, appetite and digestion, memory, mood, pain, immune response, bone development and motor control among others.
When the ECS is not producing enough endocannabinoids, the body starts to encounter problems. This is where hemp comes in.
CBD and other Cannabinoids
Hemp produces phytocannabinoids which are similar to our naturally occurring endocannabinoids. The most beneficial and, thus, famous one is CBD.
The trick is that, being so similar in chemical composition, when our bodies fail to produce enough endocannabinoids, supplementing with hemp derived cannabinoids can help restore balance.
Out of all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids in hemp, CBD is the most beneficial for our bodies. It is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, appetite stimulant and neuroprotector. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Its therapeutic benefits have been recognized by the US government. There’s a patent titled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants” that was granted to the National Institute of Health in 2003.
And there’s more!
Hemp not only produces CBD and other phytocannabinoids (more than 100!), but also flavonoids, terpenes and fatty acids.
The entourage effect means that, when taken together, the effects in our bodies are greater than if consumed individually.
