What is the Endocannabinoid System and how does it work

The endocannabinoid system {ECS} refers to a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. You can think of cell receptors like little locks on the surface of your cells. The keys to these locks are chemical molecules called endocannabinoids. Each time one of these endocannabinoids binds to a cell it relays a message, giving your cells specific direction . Two Primary cell receptors make up the ECS ,Cannabinoid Receptor 1{CB1} and Cannabinoid Receptor 2 {CB2}.The keys for these receptors are called Endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are the body's natural chemicals, which mirror the cannabinoids found in the cannabis(And Hemp) Plant. In Fact Endocannabinoids got there name from  Cannabis .

There are two main endocannabinoid molecules in the human body, named Anandamide and 2-AG,which are mimicked by THC and CBD in plants, respectively. Funny thing is , scientists wouldn't of discovered anandamide without THC. Psychoactive (THC) was first discovered by Israeli scientist Raphael Mechoulam back in the 1960s. His Finding quickly spurred a rush to figure out how THC worked, and whether or not our bodies produced a similar compound .When you introduce plant based cannabinoids into the human body, they work with your natural endocannabinoids to fuel the endocannabinoid system, helping it perform better and more powerfully .


How can Cannabidiol help me?

Due to DSHEA restrictions, we (and other Hemp Companies ) are not at liberty to make specific claims about the effects, mechanisms or benefits of our hemp oil Products . However, a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology as well a 2003 U.S Government Patent found that CBD acts as an antioxidant, reducing free radicals that can cause neurodegenerative disorders .

The 2013 study, along with the clinical trials performed in the 2003 patent, identifies a list many potential health benefits. Additionally, the patent(US Patent 6630507) which is actually own by the US Government itself )claims that CBD may be "useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic , age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune disease"... and may " have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative disease, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV Dementia. Non psychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol ,are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the methods of the present invention.
