Today we’re going to be talking about the endocannabinoid system, that’s a special system inside your body, as well as hemp extract and all the wonderful things, including CBD, that you find in hemp. We’ll also review some of the special products that we use our special Whole Food Hemp Extract in.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a fairly new discovery in the world of health and science–and it’s fascinating. What’s really special about the ECS is that, in this identification, they found an intricate network of receptors located throughout the entire body that interconnect all of the biological systems together.
They’ve deemed it a regulatory system because it helps to maintain and support homeostasis, or balance, inside the body. It is a truly amazing system that has unlocked the mysteries that have eluded researchers for decades.
Now, what’s really cool is a plant that’s been around for thousands of years—hemp—is one of the highest concentrations of one of the cannabinoids that is all the rage today—CBD. While your body produces its own form of cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, in hemp you have plant-derived cannabinoids called phytocannabinoids.
While many of us are extremely excited about CBD, found in hemp there are a number of other cannabinoids other than CBD. In fact, there have been numbers approaching over 113 cannabinoids in hemp that have been identified. And there is this thing called the “Entourage Effect” or the effect that all of these cannabinoids work together.
The Endocannabinoid System and CBD: Why We Focus on the Entourage Effect
What makes HempFusion so special is actually our starting raw material, the hemp plants, and how our extraction process best complements the known relationship between the endocannabinoid system and CBD. Every one of our products is formulated with what we call our organic panoramic wholefood hemp extract.
We use C02 extraction, a very common form of extraction in the industry.
However, we use it slightly differently. Our extraction process is significantly slower than a conventional CO2 extraction method, uses a very low heat and requires less processing.
This “slow and low” process yields so much more of the goodness naturally found in the hemp plant, such as minor cannabinoids, cannaflavins, omegas and so many other constituents. This means the endocannabinoid system and CBD are met with the array of other beneficial compounds that contribute to the Entourage Effect.
The Endocannabinoid System and CBD: Does Form Matter?
Some companies use what is called a CBD isolate-meaning it has nothing else but CBD. Most companies highly refine their hemp in order to maximize the CBD content so they end up with some of the other cannabinoids and compounds that are originally in the hemp, but at pretty low levels. Now let’s take a look at HempFusion. Remember our slow, gentle processing. The result is that our hemp extract has just as much CBD as other companies but we have a wider array of those other cannabinoids and constituents, like omegas, that are so important to the Entourage Effect.
While they’re delivering about 50 mg of CBD from about 80 mg of hemp extract, we’re getting the same 50 mg of CBD from about 500 mg of hemp extract. This is important because this additional 450 mg of hemp extract is what yields all of these special constituents. It also allows for the largest opportunity for supporting the body from the entourage effect perspective. And as we’ve discussed, when it comes to the endocannabinoid system and CBD, this is a great thing.
Our certified organic hemp extract yields more hemp per serving, while delivering the same amount of CBD as everyone else.
As you can tell, we are pretty passionate here at HempFusion. We also believe in radical transparency, which means every single one of our products and every lot manufactured is tested third party for things like herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, microbiological safety, cannabinoid profiles (to make sure you’re getting all the cannabinoids you’re supposed to get, including CBD), as well as terpenes and so much more.
The Endocannabinoid System, CBD and Other Functional Ingredients
The name HempFusion means hemp fused together with other ingredients. This is important from the very beginning to us. When we look at the primary reasons why people are using products that contain hemp and CBD, two of the most important have come up numerous times over and over…and that is for purposes of stress and sleep.
Sleep Support CBD Capsules. Our HempFusion Sleep Support Capsules not only have our panoramic hemp extract and CBD with all the other wonderful hemp-derived compounds, we also include the amino acid GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). That means, when you consume this, it helps your brain and your body relax so that you can potentially get better sleep. I like to say it’s “mental noise canceling.”
Stress Support CBD Capsules. Now, if we’re having a little bit of stress during the day, our HempFusion Stress Formula includes ashwagandha. It’s an herb. It’s known as an adaptogen. It helps your body adapt to these occasions of stress. It’s an awesome formula to help relax during the day, but not make you tired.
Energy Support CBD Capsules. Other days, we could all use a boost during the day, and for that, our Energy Support CBD is fantastic, and this product is rather unique. We have our HempFusion Energy. Not only does it have all the amazing elements of hemp and CBD and all these other compounds we’ve been talking about, but we also include Guayusa, which is an Amazonian tea leaf, along with ginseng and ginger, and it has this uplifting, energizing effect that I can tell ‘ya, is what we like to call “smooth energy.”
For the person that’s looking for that product that’s CBD with all the other wonderful compounds, but doesn’t have necessarily a target, like sleep or stress, but does have a difference in milligram strength of which you wish to use (some people want to go light and use 10 mg, some want to go as high as 50), our CBD oil tinctures go anywhere from 10 mg all the way up to 50 mg.
