Dr. Sherill Sellman’s book, The A to Z Health Benefits of Hemp Extract, provides a wealth of information about how key cannabinoids in hemp oil have been found to effectively treat symptoms of an ever-increasing number of conditions.
How hemp oil helps manage pain through the endocannabinoid system…
The human endocannabinoid system is one of the most fundamental physiological systems in our bodies – a “primordial language that [our] nerves and brain cells use to communicate,” says Dr. Sellman.
The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining homeostasis (balance) in the body. When this system isn’t functioning properly, we start experiencing pain, sleep difficulties, fatigue, and a whole host of other symptoms.
Hemp oil studies show it restores the balance of your endocannabinoid system.
Certain chemical compounds, called cannabinoids, are behind the pain-relieving properties of hemp oil. They stimulate a certain set of receptors in your brain, called CB2 receptors.
Stimulating these receptors blocks the release of neurotransmitters, which are chemicals that produce inflammation and pain sensations in the human body. These chemicals can also affect sleep, mood, stress levels, and nearly every other physiological function.
In short… the compounds provide natural relief from chronic pain, insomnia, mood swings and stress, and dozens of other conditions listed below:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Heart Disease
- Weight Gain & Obesity
- Sleep Disorders
- Bone Health
- Chronic Pain
