What Is Hemp?

 Hemp includes all varieties of the Cannabis genus that contain negligible amounts of THC, the chemical that makes marijuana psychoactive and gets you “high”.  The Cannabis family has several different breeds, yet it is most infamously known for marijuana (“weed”). This is the main reason why people confuse the term hemp with marijuana. Hemp actually refers to the industrial, non-drug variant that is cultivated for its fiber, hurd, and seeds. 

Will hemp Get Me High?

NO, hemp does not have psychoactive effects. It will NOT give you a High feeling. Unlike marijuana, hemp does not effect the CB1 receptors of the brain the way THC does, some compounds in the hemp plant can negate the psychoactive effects of THC.

Your Endo-cannabinoid System. (ECS)

The body's cannabinoid receptors and cannabinoids make up the endo-cannabinoid system (ECS). There are receptors located in all tissues in the body, including the heart, digestive, endocrine, immune, and nervous systems. Cannabinoids effect them all differently helping to keep your body in balance. The ECS has two main receptors, CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are concentrated in the brain and central nervous system, but can also be found in other parts of the body. CB2 receptors are mostly in peripheral organs especially cells associated with the immune system. Scientist believe the ECS is one of the most important physiological systems in the human body. There are over 80 active phyto-cannabinoids found in both the hemp and cannabis plants that in many studies have been said to give your ECS a much needed boost. This is why people may include hemp in their vitamin regimen to help support overall health.
