Welcome to Hemp
"looks like, smells like, tastes like"...but no, it's NOT POT.

The Human Endocannabinoid system works to maintain its' harmony
by utilizing the millions of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body.
Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is the main ingredient in the Hemp Plant and

is the primary phyto-canna-bi-noid produced by the hemp plant.

 

When your body detects an imbalance within itself, it naturally produces endogenous cannabinoids (cannabinoids made in the human body) to interact with your body's cannabinoid receptors, which in turn stimulate chemical responses to return back into homeostasis.

If your body does not produce enough endogenous cannabinoids, the endocannabinoid system is unable to function properly, ultimately leaving your body unbalanced and out of homeostasis. In order to supplement a deficient endocannabinoid system, phyto cannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by plants such as hemp flower) may be consumed helping the body bridge that gap.

Both CBD oil and hemp seed oil are derived from the hemp plant. The main difference is that hemp seed oil is typically cold-pressed from the hemp seed and is filled with Omega fatty acids, and naturally contains no phyto cannabinoids. CBD oil cannot be derived from the hemp seed. It is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. Hemp seed oil does not contain CBD, hemp flower and leaves do.

Cannabinoids and Terpenes Together

The study of cannabinoids and terpenes together adds another layer of research to the potential of this great plant. Various cannabis compounds can influence the other’s mechanisms, with even very small, trace amounts making a significant difference. One great example is the terpene myrcene, which can reduce resistance in the blood-brain barrier, which enables easier transport and utilization of beneficial cannabinoids like CBD. This is just a small sample of what we do every day.
