CANNABIMIMETICS & ECS
Our line contains natural cannabimimetic oil. Cannabimimetics are a general class of compounds found in nature that bind to the CB1 or CB2 receptors (shown below) as cannabis does and these compounds offer a pharmacological effect just the same as cannabis. While these compounds are not cannabinoids, they act the same and can aid in encouraging the Endocannabinoid System functions. These phytoextracts can act as receptor agents and can be involved in aiding inflammation, oxidative stress, cancer, and neuroprotection. Cannabimimetics can be found in plants such as the Cone Flower (Echinacea), Electric Daisy, Liverwort, Rosemary, Turmeric, Cacao, Hemp, Thyme, and Black Pepper just to name a few.
Our labeling denotes the total mg amount of the active cannabimimetic in each bottle, however, our cannabimimetic blend offers additional cannabinoid-like molecules. If all properties are to be considered, the total benefit factors change the total mg count.
100mg bottle = 126.80mg total cannabimimetic and cannabinoid-like molecule total
150mg bottle = 190.20mg total cannabimimetic and cannabinoid-like molecule total
300mg bottle = 380.40mg total cannabimimetic and cannabinoid-like molecule total
600mg bottle = 768.80mg total cannabimimetic and cannabinoid-like molecule total
1800mg bottle = 2282.40 total cannabimimetic and cannabinoid-like molecule total
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is responsible for regulating balance in a body. Most creatures, including vertebrates and invertebrate, have an ECS which produce their own innate cannabinoids known as anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglyerol (2-AG). Hemp has a rich nutritional profile and possesses a healthy ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which helps to boost the ECS. Many creatures need help by adding additional cannabinoids from outside sources. Science has shown synthetic cannabinoids do not work well and using a full-plant species can be much more effective than a single (isolated) cannabinoid can, as the entourage effect offers the highest efficacy. For an oil to offer the optimum benefit it should contain full-plant properties including terpenes.
Terpenes are naturally occurring compounds present in trace amounts in several plants, including flax and hemp plants. Terpenes have been cultivated for thousands of years, in part because they uniquely interact with the ECS.
Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks but the goal is always the same: homeostasis.
