We offer Endocannabinoids & Hemp Oil!
Endocannabinoids are crucial to bioregulation. Their main role is in cell-signaling, and, because they are
hydrophobic, their main actions are limited to paracrine (cell-to-cell) or autocrine (same cell), rather than
systemic, effects. Unique characteristics of the ECS are as follows:
Lipid structure, making it lipophilic
Hydrophobic with limited mobility in an aqueous environment
Local cell-signaling (paracrine or autocrine)
Retrograde transmission in the brain; travels backward from postsynaptic to presynaptic cells
Formed from the internal lipid constituents of cellular membrane
Synthesized “on demand” and not stored
Very short half-life
Degradation by FAAH may regulate ECS bioactivity
Two G-protein–coupled receptors in the brain (CB1-R) and immune system (CB2-R)
With scientific evidence suggesting their role in inflammation, insulin sensitivity, and fat and energy metabolism, inhibition of endocannabinoids may be a tool in reducing the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and augmenting the benefits of physical exercise. Furthermore, modulation of the endocannabinoid system may be a cure for more chronic neurologic and immune conditions. Research in animal models suggests the possible use of cannabinoids as anticancer drugs.
Hemp oil is a great source of high-quality nutrients and has a long history of use in Eastern culture as a multi-purpose natural remedy. Despite its widespread popularity, prejudice related to its association with Marijuana it has kept it from common use in the West. While the oil contains virtually no THC (the psychoactive element in cannabis) hemp oil is still concerning to some. Thankfully, education is prevailing and the market for hemp oil is growing in the United States, with an increasing number of people seeking it out for its reported health benefits.
