Know the benefits
Components of hemp work intrinsically with the Endocannabinoid System, or the ECS, which is found in
all vertebrates. The main function of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis in the body. This system is
comprised of cannabinoid receptors, our own internally produced endocannabinoids, and the enzymes
that break them down. The ECS works closely with many systems and functions of the body
Cannabinoids interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS. CB1 receptors are found mainly in the
brain and the nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and other organs in
the body. These compounds can create balance through these receptors. We can support this system by
supplementing with phytocannabinoids, or cannabinoids found in hemp plants.
Our skin’s layers also contain vital components of the ECS, which works to balance functions related to
skin health. When applied topically, hemp extract absorbs through the skin and works directly with the
receptors of our endocannabinoid system.
Full Spectrum refers to hemp extract that contains all components of the hemp plant, including plant sterols, fatty acids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Full Spectrum extract also contains the trace amounts of THC found in hemp plants.
Broad Spectrum refers to extract that contains all compounds of the hemp plant, however, the THC has been removed to untraceable levels, rendering a holistic yet THC-Free product.
The term Isolate, when used in reference to hemp, describes the isolation of only one molecule. This process results in a pure and potent substance. Isolate "works well with others" and can be used to increase the concentration of your full or broad-spectrum products.
Our skin’s layers also contain vital components of the ECS, which works to balance critical functions related to skin health. When applied topically, hemp extract absorbs through the skin and works directly with the receptors of our endocannabinoid system both above and below the skin’s surface.
