EDUCATING kiwi’s ABOUT HEMP

What does hemp oil have to do with the most important system of physiology in the body: the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The ECS was discovered in mid-1990 by researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam. It was found that the ECS is an integral part of our physiologies responsible for maintaining order and balance across all other systems of the body from the circulatory, digestive and reproductive, to the nervous system and hemp plays a crucial role.

INTEGRAL TO DEVELOPMENT

The ECS develops before 14-weeks of gestation and is involved in regulating brain development, motor control, cognition and emotional responses through compounds naturally produced by the body called endo-cannabinoids; specifically, anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG).

Endo-cannabinoids have been found in mothers breast milk at 8-weeks and these compounds are integral to a baby’s development; from facilitating the suckling response and regulating appetite to enhancing feeding behaviour.

found in all mammals

This system is found in all mammals from dogs to dolphins. If you were to imagine how it works visually, it looks like little locks called receptors. These receptors are called cannabinoid-1 (CB1) and cannabinoid-2 (CB2) and make up 2% of the human genome. There are more cannabinoid receptors in our brain than neurotransmitters.

They are keyed to the endo-cannabinoids our body naturally produces (AEA & 2-AG) and to the phyto-cannabinoids produced by plants (CBD, THC, CBG, CBN etc.)

bringing balance

Both cannabinoids hold the shape of a key that fit perfectly into the little locks located throughout your entire body from your brain and gut to your immune cells. Unlocking your body’s own internal medicine cabinet (the ECS), to activate order and balance in areas of the body responsible for regulating sleep, balanced mood, pain, inflammation and the immune system.
