Using Hemp Oil to Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Hemp Oil has become a popular remedy for a variety of ailments. Some clinical research has been conducted on the benefits of Hemp Oil. Data suggests that oil from the hemp plant has properties that may contribute to your wellbeing.

What is Hemp Oil?

The flowers of the hemp plant are used to produce the oil. The product is diluted with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, and does not contain psychoactive compounds.

The Body’s Natural Endocannabinoid System

Hemp oil has unique properties that work with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a cell signaling system within the body that is very complex.

The ECS helps regulate many functions of the body like:

● Mood

● Appetite

● Memory

● Sleep

● Fertility and reproduction

 There are three main parts to the ECS:

➢ Endocannabinoids (helps keep internal functions running smoothly)

➢ Receptors (endocannabinoids bind to the receptors signaling the ECS to perform a function)

➢ Enzymes (break down the endocannabinoids after it performs their function)

The ECS is connected to multiple body functions:

● Metabolism

● Pain

● Mood regulation

● Stress

● Liver function and much more

How Does Hemp Oil Help With Stress and Anxiety?

Experts are not sure how the cannabinoids in hemp oil interact with the EDS. Some authorities believe that the cannabinoids in hemp oil bind with undiscovered receptors. Other experts believe that the cannabinoids in the oil prevent the breakdown of the natural endocannabinoids allowing them to have a greater effect on the body, including neurotransmitters in the brain.

Regardless of how hemp oil works, studies have indicated that the cannabinoids in Hemp Oil may be able to:

● Reduce chronic pain and inflammation

● Reduce anxiety and stress

● Improve sleep

Researchers are exploring how cannabinoids can help with many other conditions.

How many different types of hemp oil are there?

The three main types of oil are Isolate, Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum.

Full spectrum oil has CBD and all of the other cannabinoids (including THC), terpenes and fatty acids that naturally occur in the cannabis plant. Full spectrum is often called a full or whole plant extract. In a full spectrum extract, the oil goes through the cannabinoid extraction process and filtration, however, none of the cannabinoids or other compounds are removed. While full spectrum does have THC, it does not contain enough THC to get you high. The benefits of a full spectrum oil is that many of the other chemical compounds and cannabinoids in a full-plant extract have healing properties. For example, the terpenes in the cannabis plant are known to have anti-inflammatory properties. Other cannabinoids found in a whole plant extract are thought to enhance the overall benefits.

Isolate only contains cannabidiol and does not contain any other cannabinoids, terpenes, or healthy fatty acids from the plant.

Broad spectrum is a middle ground between isolate and full spectrum oils. It has all of the cannabinoids and other chemical compounds except for THC.

Many prefer the whole plant extract given its enhanced and synergetic response.

How is it best to take Hemp Oil?

You can either take the Hemp Oil drops under your tongue before swallowing - allowing the oils to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream. Or you can absorb the hemp through the digestive system by adding it into your beverage of choice on a daily basis such as coffee, smoothies, tea, water, or juice.

We recommend mixing our Hemp Oil with Natural Remedy Turmeric & Curcumin Tonic combined with a good fat to maximise absorption, such as milk and milk alternatives (try almond, oat, coconut or soy). Both Hemp and Turmeric & Curcumin are a powerful force together and taste great.

Our newest product is a Full-Spectrum Strength Hemp Oil made from the mature cannabis flower. Cannabis extract is used worldwide to de-stress, relieve anxiety, help with sleep and chronic pain. If you struggle with stress and anxiety, you should consider Hemp Oil. The plants used to produce the oil are grown in Northern NSW and are a high-quality genetic strain.
