What Makes Hemp Seed Oil Work For So Many Conditions?
We exactly know what you are thinking right now...
HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?
Well, let us tell you that "how" is not the first question you should be asking but "what." What makes Hemp Seed Oil, or Hemp Oil, or known as Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil, as one of the most effective support to your health and helps your conditions.
According to Dr. Sulak, the ECS or endocannabinoid system, with its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body's organs, is a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system, we begin to see a mechanism that explains how states of consciousness can promote health or disease.
While Dr. Dustin Sulak published an article in NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), mainly discussing the therapeutic effects of Cannabis, cannabinoids, in the human's ECS or Endocannabinoid System, and not mentioning Hemp particularly, remember “Hemp” is a term used to classify varieties of Cannabis with 0.3% THC or less (which cannot get you high) and contains the plant-based cannabinoids, called phytocannabinoids - extracted from the "seeds" of the Hemp plant.
So while Hemp and cannabis can indeed be the same species of plant, the use of Hemp Seed Oil is 100% legal in New Zealand, Australia, and other parts of the world.
And so back to our question, "WHAT MAKES HEMP SEED OIL WORKS FOR SO MANY CONDITIONS?"
The short answer is... your bodies' ECS and the phytocannabinoids (also known as the plant-based compounds) contained in our Hemp Oil activates your ECS. And since your ECS has receptors for phytocannabinoids, the more receptors stimulated by these plant-based compounds, the more it helps your body to bring things into balance, correct when something is operating outside of the right range, like your temperature, hormone levels, blood sugar, and ph levels, and overall, works for your conditions.
And the long answer is, well...
Let's look at the word "endocannabinoid." "Cannabinoid" comes from "cannabis," and "endo" is short for "endogenous," which means that it is produced naturally inside of your body. So "endocannabinoid" simply means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us.
In proportion to Dr. Sulak's findings, "The endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment."
And he added that "Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body, embedded in cell membranes, and are believed to be more numerous than any other receptor system. When cannabinoid receptors are stimulated, a variety of physiologic processes ensue. Researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB1, predominantly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs; and CB2, predominantly found in the immune system and its associated structures."
And in his educational video below, Dr. Sulak explains the endocannabinoid system and the role it plays in maintaining harmony and balance within your body. We included the transcription for your reference.
When people hear about all the different health conditions that cannabis can help with and all of the different benefits of cannabis, it's almost too hard to believe how can one herb has so many powerful medical properties without having any dangerous side effects.
This question led researchers to discover a system of physiology that we all have inside of us that's constantly maintaining balance at a cellular level. It was named the endocannabinoid system because we discovered it when we were looking for how does cannabis work.
Now we know that the endocannabinoid system is active in everyone all the time from even before you are born to the end of your life, helping promote health and balance physiologically.
This system is present all through the body and all the different tissue - that's why it can help with; disorders of the brain, of the various organs like the liver or the intestines, it can help with musculoskeletal problems, it can help with inflammatory and immune issues, your body is making cannabinoids all the time.
These molecules function a lot like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and the other cannabinoids found in the plant, and your body knows when to make these and how to make these to keep you healthy. Some people need a little help, or their endocannabinoid system may not be functioning at its optimal level, and you can address this by adding in the right dosage of cannabis from the plant.
I've been surprised in my clinical practice to discover that ultra-low dosages of cannabis can be health-promoting and also relieve symptoms and patients at these very low dosages. People will over time become more sensitive to cannabis and start getting better and better effects from the cannabis they're using as well as start to develop a feeling of the resilience of strength of balance.
What I believe is happening, and this is supported by animal research - is that a very low dosage of cannabis can actually up-regulate and tonify your endocannabinoid system. This means the system of physiology that's been active within you since before you were born starts acting more efficiently, more optimally to promote health and balance internally.
Ultra-low dosages of cannabis can be used in my experience to promote health and to keep people resilient to all the toxicities and changes in their environment.
