Intimate Relationship with Omegas

Scientist discovered that there is an intimate relationship between your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and your omega-3 status. If you are deficient in omega-3s, chances are you are also ECS deficient. Omega-3 essential fatty acids make your receptors more active as well as help your body to produce more endocannabinoids. We don’t have a saturated fat problem or omega-6 deficiency. We do, however, have an omega-3 essential fatty acid deficiency problem. . Hemp-seed oil, hemp seeds, hemp hearts, hemp milk is all marketed as both a food and a supplement. And while CBD may not actually be listed on the label, "these products all contain phytocannabinoids."

In a study released February 13th, 2019, researchers did, indeed, discover that cold-pressed hemp seed oil contains 32 varieties of cannabinoids! These cannabinoids range from CBD to CBN, CBG, CBDMA, 6,7-epoxy-CBG, and 6,7-epoxy-CBGA. Hemp seed oil is considered to be one of the best nutritional seed oils for health because the essential fatty acid (EFA) profile is closest to that required by the human body. Globulin edistins found in hemp seeds are almost identical to human blood and they have the enzymes necessary for metabolic activity while neutralizing alien microorganisms and toxins.

It turns out that omega 3 plays a very critical role in maintaining proper functioning of your endocannabinoid system. Hence where Hemp oil comes into play and another reason why I suggest Hemp oil as the carrier in a CBD oil over a MCT or any other carrier oil . Hemp oil is a much lower saturated fat then Coconut oil! Many do not know that those with certain health issues (autoimmune diseases) can not metabolize MCT's! If you look at it homeopathically, which I do being a Registered Holistic Practitioner, you want 'like with like'.

So by putting CBD molecules into a coconut carrier, or any other, you’re adding a foreign substance. And while coconut oil and other oils have their place in the health industry, they do not belong in CBD.

The synergistic benefits of using a pure, supercritical, CO2-extracted full spectrum CBD oil with a carrier oil of cold-pressed hemp seed oil has been shown to assist with the pain and swelling associated with many ailments, stabilize blood sugars in and may eliminate the need for insulin, it's shown to lower numbers, and lessen the risk of a certain disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body... Due to vasodilator effects, which open up the arteries and veins to prevent stroke and reduce high blood pressure, it may also greatly assist in the reduction of pharmaceuticals.

Hemp is also loaded with enzymes, including lipase and protease. In fact, it was in hemp seed that scientists first discovered enzymes. Enzymes are essential in digestion and gastrointestinal health. The more I learn within every college course I take the more I know we have something incredible here with Cannabis in every form, especially in a pure oil!

This brings us back to Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s play a critical role in your body, forming every part of every cell structural membranes. They send messages through neurotransmitters and provide energy within the cells. They are essential to the cardiovascular, immune, and endocrine systems, as well as many other systems and bodily functions. Omega-3 is very long and highly flexible. When it is incorporated into the cell membrane, it makes the membrane itself elastic and fluid so that the signals pass through efficiently. If the wrong fatty acids are incorporated into the membrane, the receptors do not react as they should. Fatty acids can be saturated or unsaturated. Coconut oil, for example, is a saturated fat with long straight chains that stack up and stick together, forming a solid material. In contrast, unsaturated fatty acids have double bonds that cause the chain to bend. These chains do not stack up or stick together like saturated fats, allowing them to stay in liquid form and be drawn into the cell membrane.

Back to Hemp seed oil Hemp, hemp seeds and hempseed oil has been called "Nature’s Perfect Food for Humanity" - a wealth of health for everyone. They contain all the essential amino acids, including nine the body cannot make and essential fatty acids necessary for human life, as well as a rare protein known as globule edestins that is very similar to the globulin found in human blood plasma. Hemp oil is nature’s most balanced oil for human nutrition and is easily digestible; in fact this oil could provide all of our essential fatty acid (EFA) requirements for life, due to the balanced 80% EFA content of the oil. Hempseed oil is just 6% saturated fat compared to 91% saturated fat found in coconut oil. Hemp seed oil contains all 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids our body is unable to make on its own. As the building blocks of protein, amino acids are needed to build and maintain muscle tissue.

Phytocannabinoids are the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis and hemp plant – as opposed to synthetic cannabinoids manufactured artificially, and opposed to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids produced in the bodies of animals and humans. Is CBD Isolate phytocannabinoid hemp oil? No – not entirely. CBD is just one phytocannabinoid of the hemp plant. Like, THC, it’s received plenty of media attention as its benefits and the stories of the people that it helps spread throughout the community. However, it’s commonly accepted amongst the hemp oil community that phytocannabinoid hemp oil means full spectrum; with the over 100+ compounds that we have discovered to date. ~~ What’s the Difference Between Phytocannabinoids and Cannabinoids???

It might interest you to know that there’s actually a minimal difference between phytocannabinoids and cannabinoids. The difference is just a matter of specificity. Phytocannabinoids refer to any cannabinoid that is naturally occurring within the cannabis family of plants. Such cannabinoids include the more famous THC and CBD, but they also include other cannabinoids such as cannabigerol (CBG), which we will discuss. There are over 70 phytocannabinoids discovered and studied within the cannabis plant. These phytocannabinoids can be considered as a contrast to endogenous cannabinoids, which are the lipids and ligands that your body makes on its own through the endocannabinoid system (ECS) without any interference or ingestion of the cannabis plant. Phytocannabinoids each have different ways of interacting with the ECS. For this article, we will be looking at Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC), Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinols (THC), Cannabinol (CBN), and Cannabitriol (CBT), but bear in mind that this is not the all-inclusive list.

Hempseed oil provides the indispensable essential fatty acids in a proportion that is highly valuable to human – Omega 3 to Omega 6 is optimal at 1:3 ratios. You will also find iron, magnesium, and potassium sufficiently supplied in addition to linoleic acid, and vitamin E.

Essential fatty acids play an integral role in energy storage, brain activity, mental health, heart, restful sleep, memory and cognition, and so much more. Omega-3 fatty acids help to regulate and improve our moods, reduces symptoms of menopause, ensures our eyes are healthy, soothes joint tenderness, and boost brain health. I guarantee you won’t find all these benefits by using CBD oil with coconut, olive, or even vegetable oil. One last reason I prefer hempseed oil over another carrier oils – You won’t find cannabinoids in any other oil. And with over 421 chemical compounds found in hemp, doesn’t it just make sense to keep it all together?
