therefore, hemp oil

The world of hemp and hemp oil is seemingly controversial, because hemp is cannabis.  Which means hemp is a drug, right?

This could not be farther from the truth.   Because hemp comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant, and contains only trace amounts of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes a user “high.”     The fact is, if we can see past the distant relationship between hemp and THC, numerous markets in the United States, and the rest of the world, could be revolutionized.

Hemp and Sustainability

Hemp is one of the most sustainable plants on the earth. Harvested hemp produces hemp seeds, hemp oil, and hemp fiber – all of which help to produce a multitude of products. In the chart, you can see a number of the products derived from the hemp plant; by no means is this an exhaustive list:

In an agricultural system that currently uses poisonous pesticides on major crops, such as wheat and cotton, hemp is a healthy choice due to its ability to naturally fight off insects.
More specifically, the production of wheat in order to raise livestock is literally ruining the environmental makeup of the planet, hemp is an alternative that would not only continue the global food economy, but also serve as a textile, motor-fuel, and nutrient source. Hemp can serve as a more efficient, healthy, and versatile resource if we are willing to embrace its benefits.

Hemp Oil and Nutrition

Perhaps most importantly, hemp oil has the ability to positively impact the human body from a nutritional perspective.

In the world of nutrition, there is constant conversation surround the topic of “healthy fats.” Hemp naturally produces the ideal 3:1 omega 6 to omega 3 fat ratio, making in one of the best external sources of healthy fat. This ratio is critical because these fats play a role in maintaining brain function. Additionally, this balance of fats helps to build metabolic stability in the body, allowing for homeostasis in daily bodily functions.

Hemp is not only a source of balanced fats, but is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants play a key role in the function and health of our immune systems by eliminating free radicals, or unbalanced molecules, from the body. An excess of free radicals can lead to damage in the body, such as the degeneration of cells, premature aging, susceptibility to illness, and major diseases. Luckily, the antioxidants in hemp oil provide a natural solution to maintaining your body’s immune system.

Hemp oil has the ability to aid in the homeostasis on the human body.  That makes it a perfect supplement to any diet.

The Endocannabinoid System in YOUR BODY

Believe it or not, the human body has an endocannabinoid system. Yes, your body! This system, the largest regulatory system in the human body, is made up of central and peripheral nervous system receptors in the brain, and controls things like appetite, inflammation, mood (such as anxiety, nervousness, stress, and joy), as well as pain sensations and energy. Just as every body system needs maintenance, the endocannabinoid system does as well: hemp is the answer.

Numerous cannabinoids are present in hemp, making hemp extractions “whole-plant” extractions.  While some cannabinoids are more present than others, such as CBD when compared to THC, each cannabinoid plays an essential role in helping to regulate the endocannabinoid system. This is known as the entourage effect. With the entourage of cannabinoids, the endocannabinoid system is able to thrive.

The pursuit of natural wellness

Whole plant hemp extracts rich in CBD, like Receptra Naturals products; help your body to maintain a stable, consistent, and thriving endocannabinoid system. When the endocannabinoid system is properly stimulated, our bodies react by inching closer to a state of neutrality or homeostasis. While we all strive to achieve healthy lifestyles through exercise and proper dieting, our bodies are often left needing more.

Hemp extracts provide the opportunity for our bodies to naturally achieve healthier lifestyles. Though it isn’t wise to rely on one product or routine to achieve healthy living, hemp extracts like Receptra Naturals are proven to supplement any pursuit of wellness.
