CBD / HEMP oil... A Wonder Oil... or Snake Oil?

hemp leaves, seeds, cannabis oil extracts in jarsLet’s start by talking about what CBD  / Hemp oil is, and what it is not. It is not medical or recreational marijuana. It is no longer classified as a drug, as it never should have been,  thanks to the 2018 farm bill.  It is a set of phytochemicals extracted from the hemp plant used to stimulate our own endocannabinoid system. That’s right… we actually have an endocannaninoid system in our bodies, with its own receptors. Why would we have this? Because it serves a very powerful and important purpose in our bodies. In the late 1980s, the so-called endocannabinoid system was identified,  consisting of CB1 & CB2 receptors. We actually produce our own cannabinoids for this system. CB1 receptors are predominantly located in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. High concentrations of the CB1 receptors can be found in the hippocampus (memory regulation), cerebral cortex (cognition), cerebellum (motor coordination), basal ganglia (movement), hypothalamus (appetite), and amygdala (emotions). The CB2 receptors are commonly located in the immune system, heart, bones, reproductive organs, kidneys, spleen, liver, blood vessels, lymph cells, and endocrine glands. Compounds called endocannabinoids are produced naturally in the body. They can stimulate and modulate their receptors. An example is anandamide (ananda is the Sanskrit word for bliss). After cannabinoids bind to receptors in the body in a lock and key manner, a wide range of physiological effects occur. The main effect is a restoration of homeostasis (balance) in the body. Such observed effects include altering everything from mood, stress, digestion, sleep patterns, blood pressure, pain responses, memory, and appetite to name a few.

You can think of the endocannabinoid system as a processing unit that helps regulate the body to be relaxed and handle life’s stressors in a more efficient way. It tells the nerves to slow down when they are firing too much, and restores their function to balanced levels.

The importance of this relatively untapped system was realized in an experiment / study which was conducted to test a new drug that was designed to block CB1 and CB2 receptors in an effort to curb appetite. The results of what was supposed to be a 33 month study was shocking… The subjects did have a reduction in appetite, but the clinical study was abandoned after only a year due to the increased risk of suicide, with 4 subjects actually taking their own life! The subjects reported severe depression, and serious thoughts of suicide. It was reported that they felt they had lost the ability to experience pleasure. This shows the significant role of the endocannabinoid system in us all, as it relates to the ability to perceive or feel pleasure.

The wonderful news is that you do not have to consume or smoke marijuana plants or products, whether medical or recreational, to stimulate your endocannabinoid system. You do not have to worry about testing positive on a random drug test! You can have all the benefits with safe, natural, THC free, hemp oil. There are MANY different brands on the market, and I have personally tested several of them with little to no response, with the exception of one. PrimeMyBody,  a well established company has patented a nano-liposomal emulsification process to allow the cannabinoids our bodies enjoy to be rapidly and almost completely absorbed and utilized. Nano refers to the microscopic size of the particles, and liposomal emulsification refers to the fatty acid coatings they get for better cell penetration. Most hemp products have a 10-30% absorption rate, while Recept by PrimeMyBody has up to 90% absorption! While nothing on the planet is a magic bullet for every condition, CBD / Hemp extracts can have a profound affect on the body, enhancing its ability to heal itself, and work better.
