What is Hemp Oil Extract

and what can it do for me?

First, hemp and cannabis are not different plants per se. They are breeds or varieties of the same species: cannabis sativa. Nevertheless, the two varieties have several significant differences that range from how they grow and look to their uses and the chemical compounds in their extractions.

For instance, while hemp grows up to fifteen feet tall with long, massive stalks, cannabis grows outward with more leaves and buds and rarely exceeds five feet in height.

Hemp oil is made from hemp plants with high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) but virtually no THC. Due to the fact that hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, our hemp oil products are non-psychoactive. Our F.A.S.T. product contains 0% THC. There will be no high after taking our products. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative to medical marijuana, while still offering significant health benefits.

What Do Phytocannabionids DO?

    Endocannabinoids act as agonists for cannabinoid receptors and they occur naturally in the body.

CBD interacts with the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. First discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response. Like an acrobat on a highwire, as the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system “corrects” by mediating our body’s reaction to keep us level.

Found in all mammals, the endocannabinoid system is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily throughout the brain and central nervous system (CB1 receptors) and immune system (CB2 receptors) that act in neural communication.

However, the endocannabinoid system doesn’t simply rely on plant-based cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids. The human body is capable of making its own cannabinoids. Similar in function to CBD, Anandamide and 2-AG are the body’s own endocannabinoids, created to control communication between cells, mediating your body’s functions.

It’s clear that the endocannabinoid system is one of the most important regulatory systems in the human body, but most people do very little to support the health of this system, because cannabinoids have not been part of the average diet.
