Endocannabinoid System

Updated: Nov 28, 2019

Generally speaking, we were taught about11 human body processes, such as gastrointestinal, nervous, circulatory, and so on. But there is also the endocannabinoid system, which has cannabinoid receptors. CBD is cannabidiol, and hemp is high in cannabidiol. The cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 in the body bind with the CBD molecules and produce positive biological responses, i.e., homeostasis (balance) in all other body systems. Yay for the equilibrium! The plant genus Cannabis is the only source that produces cannabinoids outside of the human body. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) consists of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites, most of which are found in the brain, central nervous system, and immune system. Within that given system, everybody system seeks to preserve homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system is aimed at maintaining homeostasis in all body systems. "Homeostasis, from the Greek words ' same' and' steady,' refers to any process used by living things to actively maintain relatively stable survival conditions" Emeritus Professor Kelvin Rodolfo. The endocannabinoid system supports that by seeking to correct anything out of balance, including mood, sleep, hormones, fertility, memory, energy, anxiety, immune response, Until recently, with the emergence of Hemp CBD oil, the average American diet did not contain cannabinoids. CBD Oil contains more than 85 other cannabinoids as well as cannabidiol.


Hemp and marijuana are different varietals of the plant species Cannabis. One could say they are relatives, but scientifically opposites. By the legal definition, Hemp contains a trace level of THC (0.3% or less) and a high level of CBD; marijuana has low CBD and high THC. You can get high on marijuana, and you can't get high on Hemp. "The core agricultural differences between medical cannabis and hemp are largely in their genetic parentage and cultivation environment," Leaf Science. Hemp and marijuana are scientifically divergent and are cultivated in different ways. The legal definition of Hemp is a plant with Hemp and marijuana are various varieties of Cannabis plant species. One might say that they are relatives, but they are scientifically contrary. Hemp contains a trace level of THC (0.3% or less) and a high level of CBD by the legal definition; marijuana has low CBD and high THC. On marijuana, you can get high, and on Hemp, you can't get high. "The core agricultural differences between medical cannabis and hemp are largely related to their genetic parentage and cultivation environment," Leaf Science. Hemp and marijuana are scientifically divergent and cultivated in various ways. Hemp's legal definition is a low-THC and high-CBD crop. Hemp's functions and uses are completely different from cannabis. The seeds and fibers are harvested for industrial Hemp. The female seed, which is the source of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is cultivated for cannabis. Hemp is often referred to as industrial Hemp, an agricultural crop. Marijuana is a crop grown in horticulture. There is a valuable and potential demand for every component of the hemp plant. Due to the fatty acid profile and proteins in the oil, hemp oilseed is used in cosmetics, soap, nutritional supplement, food industries. Hemp oil has a high percentage of essential fatty acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6, and a desirable balance. Hemp stalks fiber and cellulose are used in the textile, fuel, and construction industries. There are also many household, industrial, and technical uses of hemp seed oil.
