The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is made up of endocannabinoids and their receptors. These receptors are found throughout our entire body in the nervous, immune, digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and cardiovascular system. These receptors are built to receive cannabidiol (CBD) derived from cannabis sativa L, hemp. The endocannabinoid system works differently in different parts of the body, but the end goal is homeostasis (internal balance). Your body may not produce enough natural endocannabinoids on its own, a CBD product can offer support.
We use hemp seed oil, instead of other carrier oils, like olive oil, because it works in conjunction with the CBD.
The omega 3’s found in the hemp seed oil keeps the endocannabinoid system supercharged so it can produce its own cannabinoids. We also add Vitamin E, because hemp oil by itself is not stable, so this stabilizes the oil and extends shelf life.
Uses of CBD:
The conditions CBD can positively impact are vast due to the ECS having multiple receptor sites in various parts of the body. There are 2 commonly discussed receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain, muscles, vascular and nervous system. This explains the effect CBD has on our emotional wellbeing along with pain modulation. CB2 receptors have been primarily found in the immune system and plays a role in decreasing inflammation.
