Hemp - How does it work?

Probably, you have or have never used hemp-based products. Whatever, it is - we are sure you would like to know how does “hemp” or “bhang” based products work. Have you read about the respiratory, circulatory, and excretory systems in school? Probably you have. There is one more system worth knowing about. The endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The ECS has a profound influence on our overall well-being. So let's explore it and discover how CBD, a compound derived from the cannabis plant, interacts with it to promote balance and wellness.

The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by the body) that are spread throughout the body.

Let’s leave the biological term aside and understand it’s role. It helps in regulating various physiological functions, including mood, sleep, appetite, arthritis pain sensation, and immune response. The ECS acts like a bridge between body and mind, helping to maintain homeostasis, or internal balance, in the face of external and internal stressors.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over a hundred cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Unlike its well-known counterpart, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has a mind-altering effect, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn't produce the "high" associated with cannabis use. Instead, CBD interacts with the ECS in a way that promotes balance and wellness without intoxication.

Research suggests that CBD may offer a wide range of health benefits, including:

  1. Arthritis pain relief: CBD has been shown to alleviate pain by interacting with ECS receptors involved in pain perception and inflammation.
  2. Stress and Anxiety Reduction: By modulating neurotransmitter activity in the brain, CBD may help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, promoting a sense of calm and relaxation.
  3. Improved Sleep: CBD's calming effects may also promote better sleep quality and help alleviate insomnia.
  4. Supporting Mental Health: Preliminary studies indicate that CBD may have antidepressant and antipsychotic properties, making it a potential adjunct therapy for mental health conditions.
  5. Enhancing Immune Function: CBD's anti-inflammatory properties may support immune function and contribute to overall well-being.

While at Hampa, we don’t advocate for hemp’s recreational usage, we believe that the products made from Hemp should be used for medicinal usage. We create the best-in-class products for sleep, stress, stronger immunity, and pain relief.
