What are whole plant CBD's?
The human body contains what is called the endocannabinoid system (endo meaning within). This system creates chemicals called anadamide and 2-AG. These endogenous cannabinoids are chemical messengers that help all the body systems "talk" to each other. They help to regulate neurotransmitters, regulate pain and inflammation, and in general are very healing. Because these chemicals are made on demand as needed, deficiencies can occur when we exposed to chronic stress, pain, trauma, environmental toxins and chronic disorders. And the epidermis, our skin, is our largest organ and is an active immune organ equipped with immune competent cells.
Phytocannabinoids such as hemp or medical grade cannabis work because phytocannabinoids have an almost identical structure to anadamide and 2-AG, and fit on the receptors waiting for our own endocannabinoids that are unable to keep up with the demand. Additionally whole plant CBD products are a naturally wide balanced combination of compounds. The medicinal natural whole plant often has both benefits and safety that put the isolated ( Pharma) compounds to shame.
Hemp has proven to be very helpful and can be used as a complement to allopathic protocols. Although it is not a panacea, cannabis is helping millions of people worldwide regain and manage their health.
