Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that have recently been found to exist in the human body. One of the remarkable things about endocannabinoids is their striking resemblance to ingredients of the Industrial Hemp plant, known as phyto-cannabinoids. Scientists who were researching and trying to understand the exact effect of cannabis in the human body were the ones that paved the way to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system. Cannabidiol or CBD as it is known is one of the most abundant of the hemp-based phytocannabinoids (source: Journal of Nutraceuticals http://www.davoil.ro/documente/the-composition-of-seed-oil-and-its-potential-as-an-important-source-nutrition.pdf). When introduced to the human body it has shown health and wellness benefits
“CBD-enriched health foods, tinctures and oils are the next revolution in food and medicine” – so says Reality Sandwich author Allan Badiner http://www.realitysandwich.com/high_health_cbd_food_supply.
CBD = Cannabidiol
There currently is an explosion of entrepreneurial activity and creativity around making up for lost time with CBD. LA-based cannabis physician Allan Frankel explains: “up until this past year it was nearly impossible to help patients using CBD. Cannabis growers were focused on the ‘stoniest’ weed’, hence CBD, which is non-psychoactive and mitigates the effect of THC, was nearly lost in this community”.

Our experts are still in the early stages of understanding the synergistic effects of all the extracts from the hemp plant that are known today. More and more extracts are being found each year with now over 400 cannabiniods being listed http://dixiebotanicals.com/about/hemp-history/ .
The overall, combined effect of certain cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavenoids and perhaps another 200 molecules – all working together and carefully balanced (as in nature) produces what Dr Ethan Russo calls an “Entourage Effect”.

Hemp Seed Oil Nutritional Benefits
Hemp seed oil is an abundant source of protein, phytosterols, phospholipids and chlorophyll. It also contains many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, sulfur, magnesium, potassium, zinc, sulfur, potassium and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E. The digestible protein in hemp seed oil contains all 10 of the essential amino acids. The North American Industrial Hemp Council states that hemp also contains gamma linoleic acid, a difficult-to-obtain amino acid found in breast milk.
Hemp seed oil contains the highest percentage of essential fatty acids of any other plant. Moreover, the oil contains the ideal ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats, at three to one. According to the Mayo Clinic, adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fish-oil/NS_patient-fishoil
CBD or Cannabidiol is a natural constituent of the hemp plant that has shown significant health and wellness benefits – CBD promotes and supports the dietary and nutritional health of aging bodies (US Government patent # 6,630,507).
