WHAT EXACTLY IS FULL-SPECTRUM HEMP OIL EXTRACT?
Hemp is truly one of the most splendid and versatile plants on earth. From fiber to medicine and many things in between, hemp is a renewable and natural option to many of the products we use on a daily basis. At GM Hemp Co, we focus on the delicate compounds found within the hemp flower. There are hundreds of different phytonutrients found in the hemp flower, including cannabinoids and terpenoids.
It’s important to retain each of these components during the extraction process to create a true full-spectrum product. Because GM Hemp Co uses a patented thermal extraction process to extract our cannabinoids and terpenes, our extract has a neutral, nutty, sweet flavor that is barely noticeable and mixes well into food products and nutritional supplements.
WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS AND HOW DO THEY HELP?
Cannabinoids are a class of naturally occurring chemical compounds found within the hemp plant. Cannabidiol or CBD is one of at least 113 known cannabinoids and the most dominant hemp derived cannabinoid. CBD works in conjunction with the other cannabinoids to trigger receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system which ultimately produces a physiological response.
CBD is a non-physcoactive molecule and does not produce a euphoric high. In fact, out of the known cannabinoids, THC is the only compound that creates such an effect. It’s important to realize that hemp does produce a minute amount of THC, but since the concentration is so incredibly small it doesn’t produce any euphoric response. As research continues, we learn more about the intricacies of how these compounds work together and interact within the human body to produce favorable outcomes.
HOW IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM CONNECTED?
The Endocannabinoid System (or ECS for short) is responsible of regulating the body’s immune system, inflammation, pain, and aspects that affect our daily life, like sleep, appetite, and mood. At a very basic level, we focus on two receptor groups that are found within the body CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are located primary within the central nervous system (CNS), while CB2 receptors are positioned within organ and immune systems throughout the body.
Interestingly, the body generates its own molecules that target these receptors. These compounds are known as the endocannabinoids. Of the known endocannabinoids, anandamide is the most prevalent and researched. Unlike anandamide and THC, CBD and other cannabinoids produced by hemp do not have a direct affinity to either the CB1 or CB2 receptors. Rather, they stimulate the receptors in incredibly indicate and indirect methods. Because of this complex interaction, our full-spectrum extract triggers subtle changes within the body without producing a euphoric high.
