- 8,000 BC: Hemp cloth was used in Ancient Mesopotamia.
- 2,800 BC: Chinese hemp was cultivated for fiber.
- In 1619, it was illegal not to grow hemp in Virginia because it was such a valuable crop.
- In 1653, Nicholas Culpepper listed a variety of medical uses of cannabis sativa, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-parasitic treatment.
- Today, hemp is used in over 25,000 products.
The Difference Between Hemp & Marijuana
Hemp is an industrial product used in a variety of fields, from skin care to construction. With no psychoactive implications, there is no “high” as there is with marijuana plants because it doesn’t contain THC. Hemp plants are rich in cannabinoids, which carry amazing benefits to which our bodies respond well. It also has a variety of terpenes that have aromatic and physiological effects.
The Cannabis Sativa Family
Originating in Central Asia, this plant has been involved in mankind’s medicine and fiber applications since the beginning of time. More than 540 phytochemicals come from hemp, and their properties can help people with pain, inflammation, sleep, and mood disorders. This multi-purpose crop is harvested specifically to the desired use. Hemp describes a cannabis sativa plant with trace to no amount of THC while marijuana is a cannabis sativa plant harvested for its trichomes, which have high amounts of THC.
Common questions about Hemp-derived Cannabinoid Oil
What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compounds from the cannabis plant, known as cannabinoids, with significant medical benefits and no psychoactive effect.
What are the health benefits of hemp-derived cannabinoid oil?
It helps support the relief of muscles and joints by enhancing a healthy immune response and reducing free radical stress in these areas. Hemp-derived cannabinoid oil also eases the mind and body to promote deep and restful sleep and can naturally boost your cognitive performance, providing sharpness and clarity to enhance your outlook.
How does it work?
It works by naturally triggering your body’s endocannabinoid system to desensitize pain and stress receptors, combat free radicals, and support circulation. It also interacts with your body’s hormones, such as serotonin, to bring positivity to your mood and mind.
Is hemp-derived cannabinoid oil legal?
Hemp-derived cannabinoid oil is legal in most U.S. states.
What is the difference between THC and cannabinoids?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol are two types of cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa plants that interact with the body’s receptors. THC is the psychoactive component responsible for giving people the “high” or euphoric feeling associated with consumption and has medicinal qualities. Cannabidiol, as well as other cannabinoids, however, have no psychoactive component and are found primarily in extractions from the hemp plant. These components can be used in a variety of therapeutic applications.
How much should I take?
Please refer to the product instructions for proper dosage information.
Where does HempFX™ source its hemp-derived cannabinoid oil?
We source our hemp-derived cannabinoid oil in Colorado at registered industrial farms tested by the Colorado State Department of Agriculture for state and federal regulation compliance.
What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
Oh, this is the good stuff! It is a biological system composed of three main components: cannabinoid receptors which communicate and respond to the body’s conditions, endocannabinoids, which are molecules that activate cannabinoid receptors, and metabolic enzymes that break down endocannabinoids after they are used. The ECS is responsible for homeostasis and keeping our body and brain balanced. This is the biological system that enables our bodies to absorb cannabinoids and derive certain health benefits.
Does it show up on a drug test?
Most drug tests look to find traces of THC, not other cannabinoids. Since our hemp-derived CBD oil does not have THC, you have nothing to worry about.
Is it safe for all ages? What about animals?
Because hemp-derived cannabinoid oil is non-psychoactive, it does not cause cognitive impairments. So far, CBD has proven to be safe for children and people of all ages. For the same reasons, CBD is considered safe for pets, however, check with your veterinarian about the safety of other additives in hemp-derived CBD products.
Hemp & Your Health
Hemp contains “phytocannabinoids,” which are plant-derived molecules that are capable of interacting with receptors in our body’s “endocannabinoid system.” Cannabinoids are the main active compound in hemp and, through the endocannabinoid system, creates a variety of physiological health effects. Especially when combined with our proprietary blend of herbs, botanicals and other natural ingredients, our phytocannabinoid rich full-spectrum hemp oil products support a variety of health concerns including pain relief, mood enhancement, and sleep support.
How it Helps
Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body in the endocannabinoid system. These receptors help to maintain a sense of homeostasis in the body. Cannabinoids interact with these receptors located in the brain, spinal cord, nervous system and immune system of mammals. These positive interactions help to support the natural pathways of the body needed for optimal health.
How Cannabinoids Support Your Natural Pathways
One of the reasons that Cannabinoids are so effective is because of the endocannabinoid system (ECS)– a biological system found in the brain, organs, connective tissue, glands and immune cells. The ECS is a network of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) that help cells throughout the body maintain homeostasis – or biological balance. Our bodies are naturally inclined to perform as efficiently as possible. The better the body can maintain a sense of balance, the more efficiently our bodies can perform.
How it works
In order for the body to perform efficiently, it needs biological balance. Research has confirmed that cannabanoids interact with cells in the body and can create positive changes in neurotransmitter activity. These positive interactions have been found to improve sleep, mood, and pain.
