The word cannabis might bring to mind images of a smoke-filled bong or paper wrapped joint. But in reality, cannabis has just as much to do with hemp-rich health products as it does with the recreational drug better known as marijuana. The difference is that while the hemp plant is a cousin to marijuana, it contains very little THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which is credited with causing the marijuana high.
Hemp plants are grown so that the chemical balance in the plant produces useful products, including medicinal herbal and supplemental products. Hemp oil provides the optimal omega 6 to omega 3 ration of 3:1. The oil is even considered by some researchers to be better than fish oil because the ratio of oils are just what the human body needs and hemp is easily digestible as they are nearly identical to our own lipids. In addition, many people prefer plant-based oils since some fish are known to be high in toxins.
Hemp-rich cannabis oil contains nutrients and optimal omega oils that have been known to help people with a variety of ailments. Cannabidiol (or CBD) is a compound found in cannabis that is used for its medical effects. Scientific studies underscore CBD’s potential as a treatment for many conditions, including chronic pain, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, PTSD, arthritis, and epilepsy, MS, and other neurological disorders.
Our endocannabinoid system (ECS) interacts in harmony with CBD. The ECS is a physiologic system in the human body that affects the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. The ECS helps the body achieve homeostasis, the process of the stabilizing of the body to maintain balance, which is required for good health. When the body is injured, diseased, or out of balance, the ECS activates to try to heal and stabilize the body. According to Dr. Sulak, a doctor of Osteopathic medicine, “The endocannabinoid system, with its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind.”
