Hemp is rich in non-psychoactive cannabinoids called CBD (cannabidiol). These cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce a wide range of noted benefits. Extensive preclinical research has indicated that CBD has potent analgesic, anti-tumoral, antioxidant, antispasmodic, antipsychotic, anti-convulsive, and neuroprotective properties. 

There are many ways to deliver the healing properties of cannabis, and applying CBD oils, creams, and salves topically on the skin is one of the safest and easiest ways to benefit. While the chemical constituents aren’t as easily absorbed into the bloodstream as with ingestion or inhalation, this method is still incredibly effective at delivering the beneficial cannabinoids to the body at the cellular level. 

While there are trace amounts of THC in hemp oil, the strain of hemp that CBD is derived from is non-psychoactive, which means it doesn’t make you high. It is cultivated to produce high levels of CBD and low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the component that induces the classic marijuana “high”.

The Endocannabinoid system plays a role in regulating some of our body's basic functions and processes, including sleep, mood, appetite, and memory. Research is still being conducted on the endocannabinoid system, but has been linked to regulating many systems in the body which are also responsible for homeostasis or balance in our body. Below are the systems that endocannabinoids directly effect.

  • Metabolism

  • Appetite and digestion

  • Chronic pain

  • Inflammation and other immune system responses

  • Mood

  • Learning and memory

  • Motor control

  • Sleep

  • Cardiovascular system function

  • Muscle formation

  • Bone remodeling and growth

  • Liver function

  • Reproductive system function

  • Stress

  • Skin and nerve function
