so wtf is hemp?

hemp is actually cannabis.
no it's not 'marijuana'

‘hemp’ is a term used to classify cannabis that contains less than 0.3% thc content. hemp has been cultivated and used for a variety of cool stuff for thousands of years. in the early 1900’s, it was demonized by the american paper industry which halted cultivation and created a stigma that hurt hemp’s reputation for decades.

recently, we collectively realized how stupid we were for ever doing that and re-discovered the incredible potential that this plant has to offer -- not only from an industrial but also from a medicinal standpoint. seriously, we don’t even know how amazing it is, but here are some facts that we know for sure...

hemp seed oil vs hemp flower extract

we’re here to set the record straight once and for all so you know what you’re buying.

hemp seed oil

hemp seed oil is made from cold pressed hemp seeds. hemp seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, but typically contains very little to no cbd content.

hemp flower extract

our broad spectrum hemp oil is extracted using a supercritical co2 process to preserve terpene and cannabinoid content. we source ours from hemp flowers grown by organic farmers in oregon, usa.

human head with entourage effect puzzle pieces

the entourage effect

the interactive synergy between cannabinoids and terpenes is referred to as the entourage effect. it has been shown that the pairing of cannabinoids and terpenes is far superior medicinally than simply ingesting cbd by itself. why you ask? because, well, you actually already have cannabinoid receptors inside you. which brings us to our next section...

the endocannabinoid system

discovered in the 90s, the ecs helps maintain homeostasis and regulate internal functions. if you’re unfamiliar, homeostasis is the ability to maintain stability in an organism to account for environmental changes. basically, think of homeostasis as your body’s equilibruim and endocannabinoids are the tiny chemical engineers keeping it running at 100%.

human body referencing the endocannabinoid system highlighting the CB1 and CB2 receptors

cb1 receptors

can be found primarily in the brain and central nervous system, but are also present in your lungs, liver, kidneys and reproductive organs. modern research has found that cb1 receptors play a part in memory retention, motor functions, appetite, pain sensation, mood, and sleep.

cb2 receptors

located predominantly in the immune system with the highest concentration located in the spleen. when activated, cb2 receptors can stimulate a response that helps fight inflammation and reduces damage to tissues.

the ecs & your pets

did you know all mammals have an endocannabinoid system? that’s right, your fur-babies can benefit from cannabinoids as well. if your pets have bad separation anxiety or an illogical fear of cucumbers, cbd may help them keep their chill when you can’t be there.
