Hemp and the Endocannabinoid System

Learn the science behind Hemp and why it helps so many problems.

The Endocannabinoid System

Did you know that in 1992 researchers discovered that all mammals had an endocannabinoid system? This previously unknown system helps the body regulate many biological processes. Aches and pains, stress, mood, hunger, blood pressure, blood sugar, energy, and even our immune systems are affected by the Endocannabinoid System. The endocannabinoid system is made up of molecules called endocannabinoids and the receptors that they bind to. The CB1 and CB2 receptors are the main receptors, and they help with the regulation of mood, pain, appetite, and memory.

  • CB1 receptors  are in the brain and central nervous system and regulate the immune, nervous and gastrointestinal systems with the greatest density in the spleen where red blood is recycled, and platelets and white blood cells are stored. It regulates immune function, inflammation and pain management.
  • CB2 receptors are located on the peripheral nervous system and are mainly found on white blood cells and expressed on T cells in the immune system. They regulate pain management, appetite, immune function and inflammation.

So, Why is this Important?

Our endocannabinoid system is strengthened by our receptors. Having well-nourished receptors keeps us healthy by restoring us to a good healthy balance known as homeostasis. When our endocannabinoid system is not working properly, it causes our bodies to not function properly and even leads to illness.

CB1 receptors receive the signal in the brain when something is wrong, when viruses and bacteria are present making us ill, inflammation is detected which takes us out of homeostasis (balance).

CB2 receptors answer the call for help by sending white blood cells out on a mission like little Pac-men engulfing and destroying these harmful invaders. They will return our systems back to homeostasis (balance).

Hemp-derived CBD oil with its natural anti-inflammatory properties feeds those receptors and builds our immunity. This is not a quick fix, it takes time. The longer you take Heavenly Hemp CBD Oil, the more receptors you build, the stronger your immunity will be.
