What’s the buzz about hemp oil?
December 25, 2018
Hemp oil is one of the hottest topics these days. The evolution of hemp oil and the beneficial health aspects is making news.
The basic aspect of hemp oil is that it contains CBD, as well as other ingredients, which supports the endocannabinoid system.
Our bodies have more CBD receptors than any other receptors. This includes nerve and hormone receptors. These receptors are distributed along the acupuncture meridian pathways and the nervous system. This seems to indicate that our bodies evolved relying on hemp as a vital nutrient.
The purpose of the endocannabinoid system is to bring the body back to balance. It does this by supporting the parasympathetic nervous system.
The involuntary nervous system controls our organs, glands and blood vessels.
The sympathetic system is our fight-or-flight system. Most people are stuck in a sympathetic fight-or-flight pattern or a low-grade chronic stress syndrome.
