WHAT IS CANNABIS?

Cannabis is a beautiful plant that has many different varieties ranging from 0.1% – 30%+ THC (Delta-9 Tetrahydracannabinol) & can be grown outdoors or indoors, growing from 1/2 m – 7m. Cannabis has been used for tens of thousands of years for medicinal purposes and the only change is the advanced quality of the flowers. The entire plant can be used for medicine, however, most is from the Trichromes.

WHAT IS THC?

Delta-9 Tetrahydracannabinol is the most beautiful and abundant compound found in cannabis. THC just happens to have the right molecular structure to fit into special binding sites on cells throughout the body. These specific sections are now known to be parts of a larger, endocannabinoid system. As smoothly as keys fit into a lock, THC binds to cannabinoid receptors and ignites a series of chemical reactions.

In order to get THC the acid has to be removed from THCa first. Decarboxylation happens when you apply heat to cannabis. You cannot eat cannabis and expect to have a psychoactive experience. In its raw plant form, THC doesn’t actually exist in a shape that will trigger a psychoactive effect in humans. Inside marijuana resin glands, called trichomes, THC is actually found as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa).

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF THC
  • cancer
  • crohn’s disease
  • fibromyalgia
  • alzheimer’s disease
  • multiple sclerosis PTSD
  • neuropathic and chronic pain
  • insomnia
  • nausea
  • inflammation / arthritis
  • migraines
  • glaucoma
  • ADHD
  • sleep apnea
  • appetite loss
WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is one of over 113+ compounds found in Cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called Cannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD & THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied. CBD has been shown to assist in treating numerous different types of illnesses, and does it with love.

Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. The reason why CBD is non-psychoactive is due to its lack of affinity for CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are the most abundant receptors found in the brain and are the pathways responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD & THC have counter balancing effects on one another, which gives the user control over themselves when using this plant for medicine.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF CBD
  • natural pain relief & anti-inflammatory
  • assists with drug withdrawals
  • epilepsy and other mind imbalances
  • helps fight cancer and tumours
  • assists in calming anxiety disorders
  • type 1 diabetes
  • acne
  • balancing immune support & function
  • alzheimers & dementia
  • relieves nausea
  • promotes cardiovascular health
  • assists in optimal brain health & function
  • counteracts the psychoactive effects of THC
  • neuro-protective
  • powerful antioxidant
  • analgesic
  • appetite stimulating
  • anti-emetic
  • anti-tremor, assisting with parkinsons

What is Hemp?

There are many different varieties of the cannabis plant. Hemp, also called industrial hemp, refers to the non-psychoactive (less than 1% THC) varieties of Cannabis Sativa L. Both hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, but are genetically distinct and are further distinguished by use, chemical make-up, and cultivation methods.

Uses Of Hemp?

Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into over 50,000 products. Its seeds and flowers are used in health foods, organic body care and other nutraceuticals, as well as Hemp CBD extractions.

Uses Of Hemp Seeds?

Hemp Hearts have superior raw nutrition with a rich nutty flavor & a soft, chewy texture. The superior quality protein & amino acids supports the regeneration of muscle & tissue building, helping to accelerate recovery from exercise, benefiting general wellness, and assists in achieving optimal & mental performance. Hemp Hearts are also rich in antioxidants, vitamins & minerals.

Endocannabinoid

What is the endocannabinoid system?

Endocannabinoids are molecules that, like the plant cannabinoid THC, bind to and activate cannabinoid receptors. However, unlike THC, endocannabinoids are produced naturally by cells in the human body (“endo” means “within”, as in within the body). This would mean that our bodies should be scheduled drugs, which doesn’t make any sense at all, right? There are two major endocannabinoids: anandamide and 2-AG. These endocannabinoids are made from fat-like molecules within cell membranes, and are synthesized on demand.This means that they get made and used exactly when they’re needed, rather than packaged and stored for later use like many other biological molecules. That is why it is always up to you to find the best, most pure and highest quality possible, always insisting on data of the medicinal oils you use. Homeostasis is the concept that most biological systems are actively regulated to maintain conditions within a narrow range. Our body doesn’t want its temperature to be too hot or too cold, blood sugar levels too high or too low, and so on. Conditions need to be balanced for our cells to maintain optimum performance and exquisite  mechanisms have evolved to draw them back to balance if they move out. The body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a vital molecular system for helping maintain homeostasis balance.

Phytocannabinoids

What are phytocannabinoids?

Phytocannabinoids refer to any cannabinoid that is naturally occurring within the cannabis family of plants and sometimes found in other botanicals (Phyto means “plant”). There are more than 113 different cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis today. However, we will look at the 8 most well known cannabis cannabinoids. These phytocannabinoids can be considered as a contrast to endogenous cannabinoids, which are the lipids and ligands that your body makes on its own endocannabinoids through the endocannabinoid system (ECS) without any interference or ingestion of the cannabis plant. Phytocannabinoids each have different ways of interacting with the ECS.
