The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a built in biological receptor system in human beings. Over time animals and humans have developed cooperative relationships with other animals and plants in the living ecosystem. The human body generates compounds called endocannabinoids, while hemp produces phytocannabinoids. The ECS’s overall function is to regulate homeostasis, to keep balance, stabilization, and well being in the human body. Homeostatis is a key element in the biology of all living things and is best explained as the ability to maintain stable internal conditions necessary for survival. Endocannabiniods and their receptors in the human body are located within the brain, organs, connective tissues and immune cells. The ECS activates an impacts a variety of physiological process including appetite, pain-sensation, nausea, mood and memory.
Terpenes and phytocannabiniods originate in the same glands of the cannabis plant (Hemp). When ingested, the terpenes act as an assistant to cannabinoids as they work to penetrate the blood-brain barrier.
Phytocannabinoids also known as cannabinoids, are diverse natural compounds derived from hemp extract. These phytocannabinoids exert their affects interacting with specific cannabinoid receptors present on the surface cells within the human body. In other words, Phytocannabinoids activate the endocannabinoid system.
CBD is an entirely different compound from THC, and its effects are very complex. It is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a “high” or change a person’s state of mind, but it influences the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively.
According to one study posted to Neurotherapeutics, this is because CBD itself does very little to the ECS. Instead, it activates or inhibits other compounds in the endocannabinoid system.
For example, CBD stops the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. So, increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream may reduce the amount of pain a person feels.
Hemp extract consists of a blend of natural occuring compounds known as phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
In the United States, CBD oil has varying legality across different states and at a federal level, yet it currently has a range of applications and promising possibilities.
- smoking cessation and drug withdrawal
- future applications in combating acne, type 1 diabetes, and cancer
The same report studied CBD use for general chronic pain. Researchers compiled the results of multiple systematic reviews covering dozens of trials and studies. Their research concluded that there is substantial evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults.
A separate study in the Journal of Experimental Medicine supports these results. This research suggests that using CBD can reduce pain and inflammation.
The researchers also found that subjects were not likely to build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD, so they would not need to increase their dose continually.
They noted that cannabinoids, such as CBD, could offer helpful new treatments for people with chronic pain.
A study in the European Journal of Pain used an animal model to see if CBD could help people with arthritis manage their pain. Researchers applied a topical gel containing CBD to rats with arthritis for 4 days.
Their researchers note a significant drop in inflammation and signs of pain, without additional side effects.
All products contain less than 0.3% THC.
