Your CBD Body!
The ever-amazing human body… Our endo-cannabinoid systems are designed to function in response to cannabinoids and provide numerous regulatory functions, including that of nerve transmission / communication within the body http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12052038 . At any one time our bodies are processing thousands of pieces of information being transmitted along these nerve and neural channels http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/287907/information-theory/214958/Physiology. The cannabinoids that create this cellular response can be derived from internal sources or from dietary sources, including plant based phyto-cannabinoids http://www.sci.sdsu.edu/classes/psychology/psy760/readings/Fride.pdf.
If you seek health and wellness, dietary supplements with CBD / cannabidiol may be right for you
Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that have recently been found to exist in the human body. One of the remarkable things about endocannabinoids is their striking resemblance to ingredients of the Industrial Hemp plant, known as phyto-cannabinoids. Scientists who were researching and trying to understand the exact effect of cannabis in the human body were the ones that paved the way to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system. Cannabidiol or CBD as it is known is one of the most abundant of the hemp-based phytocannabinoids (source: Journal of Nutraceuticals http://www.davoil.ro/documente/the-composition-of-seed-oil-and-its-potential-as-an-important-source-nutrition.pdf). When introduced to the human body it has shown health and wellness benefits
The Life of Hemp
Legalized in over 30 industrialized nations, industrial hemp is perhaps the most mis-understood plant in America http://www.hemp.com/hemp-university/growing-hemp/countries-growing-hemp/ .
Hemp, being a cousin to the marijuana plant was banned in the US with the Marijuana Tax Reform Act of 1937 http://www.lewrockwell.com/spl2/reason-hemp-is-illegal.html.
Repealed for a brief period during World War II (see: Hemp for Victory http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jokV8xlJTNE) the plant, although it contains little, if any, of the psycho-active ingredient (THC) has fallen victim to its close resemblance to marijuana. Legal to import, we in the United States import nearly $500 million worth of hemp products each year.
Our country’s Founding Fathers would be mortified. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were all hemp farmers http://www.hemp-technologies.com/page33/page33.html. For a period of time, it was mandated that hemp be grown – one could even pay their taxes with hemp http://bkcreative.hubpages.com/hub/Hemp-Growing-Was-Once-Required-By-Law. From industrial hemp a rare but incredible compound can be extracted – known as CBD or cannabidiol. CBD is well adapted to our recently discovered endo-cannabinoid system to provide many people with health and wellness benefits.
