What is Hemp-Derived CBD and does it affect me?

What is Hemp cbd?


HempWorx products are made from industrial hemp plants grown on Kentucky farms. Cannabidiol (CBD), a constituent that naturally occurs in industrial Hemp, is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. Our oil is CO2 extracted resulting in a solvent free, pure extract. 

What is Hemp used for?


Hemp can be used for numerous items.  Some of things hemp is used for is rope, carpets, caulking, animal bedding, clothes, beauty products, fuel, paints, lubricants, and so much more!  It can even be used to improve the soil in crop rotation, giving the next crop planted in that field added nutrients to ensure a better crop.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS)


The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is made up of endocannabinoids, metabolic enzymes, and receptors. Its job is homeostasis, which is regulating your body so you can live comfortably. It is in charge of your eating habits, your sleeping patterns, and even your social habits. The ECS also controls inflammation, pain, and skin diseases. CBD oil can help your neurons navigate the neurotransmitters to the right receiver by either elevating the levels that are too low or decreasing the levels of a hormone that is overabundant.    Some of the biggest reasons behind its accuracy are the receptors that receive messages throughout the body and brain. The two that are the most prominent today are CB1 and CB2. 

CB1 receptors


CB1 receptors are densely populated in the brain, but can also be found throughout the body.  By activating CB1 receptors with endocannabinoids, your brain can produce long or short term changes on the conversation between your neurons.  THC is a good indicator of what all CB1 receptors are in charge of because THC activates it.  CB1 receptors are in charge of your brain, spinal cord, thyroid, upper airways, ovaries, prostate, liver, adrenals, uterus, testes, your sleep, your mood, your pain, and your diet.  When you take CBD medication, it interacts with your receptors the same way your endocannabinoids do.  This means that if your body isn't functioning properly with the endocannabinoid system, CBD can help.

CB2 receptors


CB2 receptors are evenly distributed throughout the body and has been known to help the function of your eyes, stomach, heart, pancreas, digestive tract, and bones.  When you see parts of your body swell with inflammation, it is that section of your body that is getting filled with a liquid that has immune cells that are trying to protect you from pathogens in your body.  The endocannabinoids that interact with the CB2 receptor make sure that the inflamed area doesn't spread, and doesn't overstay its welcome.  CB2 receptors are also found to be very active in the skin.  People who may have a malfunctioning ECS may get skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis.  CB2 helps replenish old skin cells, heal damaged ones and throw out the dead ones.  It also reduces inflammation, which is a prominent symptom of skin disease.  And since there are CB2 receptors underneath the epidermis, using topical CBD medications can help with painful conditions.

Animals also have an ECS


Just like their human companions, animals like dogs, cats and horses have an ECS responsible for maintaining balance and health.  Your animal's ECS is working continuously to monitor functions and then will trigger adjustments whenever outside factors cause any of the functions to become unstable, returning them back to homeostasis.  The ECS is tasked with regulating a large number of your pets' functions, some of which include mood, appetite, memory, metabolism, sleep, pleasure, movement and coordination, and immune response.  A properly functioning ECS is crucial for maintaining health and wellness in your dog, cat, horse, or any animal that has an endocannabinoid system.  CB1 receptors are located primarily in their brain and central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are mostly found on cells in their peripheral organs and throughout their immune system.  When you give your dog, cat, or horse (any mammal with an ECS) hemp-derived CBD, the cannabinoid is absorbed into their bloodstream where it naturally stimulates the ECS and encourages its efforts to balance your pet's many functions.
