ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM – THE BODY’S OWN PHARMACY
In the 1990s, scientists made one of the most fascinating health discoveries of the 20th century. The scientists identified a previously unknown network that permeates the entire body and regulates the activities of chemicals that reduce inflammation, stop pain and heal diseases. This pathway is called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
An intriguing aspect of the ECS is that chemical compounds known as cannabinoids activate it. Interestingly, the cannabis plant contains over 100 different types of cannabinoids. The human body also produces cannabinoids, which are called endocannabinoids. One such endocannabinoid is anandamide. This is responsible for the feeling of euphoria that we experience sometimes.
The discovery of the ECS helped pave the way for the use of cannabinoid compounds for medicinal purposes. It’s as if cannabinoids have been specifically designed to help the body fight diseases and heal itself.
The Endocannabinoid system permeates the entire body and controls many functions of our health. And for this reason, cannabinoids which activate the ECS system are known to treat many diseases including Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, Epilepsy, Multiple sclerosis and many others.
How does the ECS work?
The ECS operates in a ‘lock and key’ manner. Across the body, there are endocannabinoid receptors, and these are akin to locks. These receptors or ‘locks’ are found in the brain, liver, nerves, liver, pancreas, and the immune system. They are unlocked with the help of cannabinoid ‘keys. Cannabinoids produced in the body or sourced from cannabis plants, fit into the ‘locks’ to activate the critical functions that control pain, stress response, appetite, mood, immune system, brain function, and more.
To activate the ECS to its fullest potential, in other words, to unlock as many of the locks in the system as possible, we will need to have all the right keys. These keys are the cannabinoid compounds that activate the receptors. The more cannabinoid compounds we can employ, the more effective the healing achieved. This is what scientists call the ‘entourage effect’.
Most healing products produced from cannabis contain only 1 out of the over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis – CBD. And while CBD is very effective for healing a wide range of health problems, studies show that better healing is achieved by using a combination of Cannabinoids. This specialised and most effective formula of Cannabinoids is known as Full Spectrum Cannabis.
THE BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD ON ITS OWN AND FULL SPECTRUM HEMP EXTRACT
CBD oil is made with CBD Isolate and contains only 1 cannabinoid – CBD (Cannabidiol).
Full Spectrum Hemp Oil contains many cannabinoids –
And other healing compounds and nutrients…
limonene (Stress reliever),
pinene (Memory booster),
Vitamins (A, C, E, B complex…)
Minerals (Zinc, Calcium, Iron, Potassium..)
Essential Fatty Acids (Omega3...)
THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT
In 2015 a scientific study by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem compared the performance of Full Spectrum CBD extracts with another extract containing only CBD. The study concluded that Full Spectrum CBD is more effective in fighting inflammation and reducing pain.
Scientists believe that ‘The Entourage Effect’ is the reason behind the efficacy of Full Spectrum CBD. The Entourage Effect declares that CBD creates better healing results when combined with other types of CBD, than when it is on its own.
