FAQ

WHY HAS CANNABIS/ HEMP BEEN SO POPULAR?

  • The crop is easy to grow organically without using chemicals and is very pest resistant.
  • It is also low risk due to the fact that the plant is easy to grow.
  • It gives high profit per hectare to farmers because they can profit from the whole plant and the seeds.
  • It can replace fish oil as the plant is very rich in Omega 3 and contains the optimal 1:3 ratio of omega 3 to 6.
  • There is a large population of people who believe it can have a relaxation effect. Therefore, it is popular for recreational use.
  • There are also a lot of people claiming that the plant helps relieve different symptoms.

HOW DO I TAKE HEMP OIL?

There are various ways to take Hemp Oil. These are:

  • Taking Hemp Oil sublingually/ under the tongue
  • Ingesting CBD through edibles
  • Inhaling CBD through vaping
  • Applying CBD to the skin topically.

How to use Naturomen Hemp Oil depends on your chosen method. For more information, be sure to read our resource on how to take Hemp Oil.

HOW TO TAKE CBD TINCTURE?

CBD tincture can be placed under the tongue using the dropper provided (like Hemp Oil).

CBD tinctures are typically liquid extracts of hemp combined with either vegetable glycerin (VG), alcohol or MCT Oil. In fact, the word ‘tincture’ is used to describe any form of medication that is kept in an alcohol solution.

C02-extracted Hemp Oils tend to provide a safer and cleaner way to use CBD products. This is because these types of extracts leave no risk of residual solvents and other impurities.

However, CBD tincture oil is another fantastic way to use CBD extracts if Hemp Oils are hard to find. As with Hemp Oil, CBD tincture can bypass digestion if taken sublingually and so reach the bloodstream much faster than other methods.

IS HEMP OIL/ HEMP OIL ILLEGAL?

Hemp Oil, as long as it is extracted from hemp, is legal in most countries worldwide, as it contains low levels of THC (0.3%). This is the compound that gets you high, and that is illegal in most countries. Hemp is considered a controlled substance but can be used in skincare items, natural beauty products, clothing and cooking ingredients. Find out more about the legal status of CBD in 2018.

What does CBD stand for?

CBD stands for cannabidiol – one of over 100 natural cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa (one of the Latin names for this type of cannabis). It has a variety of health benefits, is legal in most countries, non-toxic and completely non-psychoactive.

WHAT IS HEMP OIL?

Hemp oil is simply another word used for Hemp Oil, as both are terms to mean cannabis extracts. But be aware that there is also a huge misunderstanding about the difference between hemp seed oil and hemp oil, with many people believing they are the same.

Hemp seed oil is derived purely from hemp seeds, and is used in food preparation but does not contain CBD or any other cannabinoids.

what is Endocannabinoid System ?

The endocannabinoid system is a biological system which plays many important roles in the human body. It is also responsible for the physical and psychological effects of cannabis.

Scientists first discovered the system while trying to understand the effects of cannabis, and named it the endocannabinoid system for this reason.

Endo stands for endogenous, which means originating within the body. Cannabinoid refers to the group of compounds that activate this system.

The endocannabinoid system is a major target of medical research because of its widespread effects and therapeutic potential. While scientists have sorted out the basics of this fascinating system, much more remains to be uncovered.

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are the chemical messengers for the endocannabinoid system. While many different cannabinoids exist, they all fall under two categories: endogenous or exogenous.

Endogenous means originating inside the body. Also known as endocannabinoids, these compounds are produced naturally by the human body. They interact with cannabinoid receptors to regulate basic functions including mood, memory, appetite, pain, sleep, and many more.

Exogenous means originating outside the body. The cannabinoids found in marijuana, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), are considered exogenous. When consumed, they also interact with cannabinoid receptors to produce physical and psychological effects in the body.

What are Endocannabinoids?

Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced naturally within the human body. 2-AG and anandamide are the two major endocannabinoids that scientists know of.

Anandamide was the first endocannabinoid to be identified by scientists. Discovered in 1992, its name comes from the Sanskrit word ananda meaning bliss, referring to its unique effects on the mind and body. In 1995, scientists discovered a second endocannabinoid and named it 2-AG (2-arachidonoyl glycerol).

2-AG is found at higher concentrations in the brain, while anandamide is found at higher concentrations in other areas of the body. Both are capable of binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors, but differ in their affinities for these receptors (i.e. how likely they are to bind to and activate each receptor).

Endocannabinoids are “short-order” neurotransmitters, meaning they are synthesized on demand. In other words, endocannabinoids are only produced when the body signals that they are needed, and their presence is transient.

After being released, endocannabinoids are quickly broken down by enzymes, which include FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase) and MAGL (monoacylglycerol lipase).

By contrast, when you consume marijuana, large amounts of cannabinoids enter the body and stick around. This means that the endocannabinoid system is activated more strongly and for longer than it would usually be.

There are other endocannabinoids currently under study, including noladin ether, virodhamine, and N-arachidonyl dopamine (NADA). However, their role in the body is not fully understood.

WHAT DOES THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM REGULATE?

With this basic understanding of the critical bridge between our health and cannabinoids — like CBD — we are able to better understand what the endocannabinoid system is capable of regulating.

First, it’s important to explain and understand what the components of the system itself are able to accomplish and why.

Today, we are familiar with two individual receptors that are activated by cannabinoids, though research is ongoing as to whether or not there may be more:

  • CB1
  • CB2

CB1 receptors are found in the central nervous system — nerves, spinal cord, and brain — while CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system. 

Before jumping to the conclusion that this makes the system limited somehow, it’s important to point out that the central and peripheral nervous systems are as important to our bodies as a motherboard is to a computer.

These two systems are responsible for almost all of our body’s functioning and reactions. They influence our motor functions, control how we feel pain, keep our digestive systems working, control our immune responses, moderate our moods, enable (or disable) our ability to sleep, help us remember information and so much more.

This vast array of functions helps illustrate why cannabis and its compounds — like CBD — are able to influence so many daily functions and alleviate so many common — sometimes debilitating — disorders and side effects.

It gets even better.

Endocannabinoid receptors are smart: they are able to act only on the bodily functions that are “off” or out of balance in order to achieve a precision level of homeostasis. The receptors cannot over function to negatively affect one system while attempting to bring balance to another. They work where and when they need to without going “overboard.”

This level of precision coupled with so many positive benefits is truly amazing. “Wow” is not an undeserved reaction when you put it all into perspective.
