Endocannabinoid System & Cannabinoids
The Endocannabinoid System
Our bodies are hard wired with a physiological system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system allows two-way communication between all the body systems. To simplify, the Endocannabinoid System is a collection of cell receptors and compounds that the body produces which allows the body systems to speak to each other.
These receptors are located everywhere within the body such as the brain, heart, lungs, liver, stomach and so on. These receptors send messages throughout the body regarding the health or dysfunction of any system. Researchers, such as Dr. Rapheal Mechoulam (Road to Ananda), believe that when these systems are out of balance, we get sick.
Plants contain phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Phytocannabinoids are plant derived cannabinoids and are lipophilic molecules. These molecules interact with the human Endocannabinoid System. Terpenes are organic hydrocarbons found in all plants. These hydrocarbons give plants their aromas and taste. Over 100 phytocannabinoids have been discovered so far. A few of these phytocannabinoids are CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDA, & CBGA. Researchers have found that the combination of phytocannabinoids and terpenes create a more synergistic pathway to the Endocannabinoid receptors within our body. Each phytocannabinoid reacts to cannabinoid receptors within the human body.
In the past, before our food was adulterated with chemicals, we were able to fill our Endocannabinoid receptors with the food we ate. Because it is almost impossible to eat chemical free food, our bodies have gotten “out of whack”. It is as if an orchestra was asked to play blind-folded, not able to read the music, or see the conductor.
Our products come from Phytocannabinoid Rich (PCR) Hemp, not Industrial Hemp. PCR Hemp contains many times the amount of cannabinoids and terpenes as Industrial Hemp, with only trace amounts of THC, which means full cannabinoid and terpene benefits without the “high”.
Utilizing our Nano-Emulsion multi-testing process, we are able to reduce all the phytocannabinoids and terpenes to atom size particles. This process allows the full spectrum of PCR to be a more bioavailable product for the Endocannabinoid System.
Cannabinoids are the Most-Studied Therapeutic Compounds on the Planet
Hundreds of abstracts published on the results of cannabis research can’t be wrong. The links to 567 of them, posted on GreenMedInfo.com, give viewers the opportunity to click their way to research that demonstrates the wide range of healing attributes and therapeutic properties of Cannabis sativa.
