Benefits from Hemp Products​
Hemp, or Cannabis sativa L, is one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. It has been used for paper, textiles, and cordage for thousands of years. There are many different varieties of the cannabis plant. Hemp, also referred to as industrial hemp, refers to the non-intoxicating (less than 0.3% THC) varieties of cannabis. Both hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, but are genetically distinct from one another. They are further distinguished by their use, biochemical makeup, and cultivation methods. The varieties of hemp that are raised by our agronomists here at PHARM HEMP naturally produce several therapeutic biomolecules including phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, also vitamins and minerals. Hemp does not have any of the psychoactive effects (i.e. “the high”) that is associated with the use of High-THC marijuana products. All of our products contain the legal limit of less than 0.3% THC.  Numerous studies have shown the wide range of therapeutic benefits Hemp possesses. Learn more about Hemp and its benefits below.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system identified in the early 1990s by researchers exploring THC. The ECS is functioning in your body, even if you don’t use cannabis. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids and these receptors have shown to function more efficiently when phytocannabinoids are introduced, i.e. Hemp Oil.

Two main endocannabinoid receptors:

  • CB1 receptors, which are mostly found in the central nervous system
  • CB2 receptors, which are mostly found in your peripheral nervous system, especially immune cells.

Phytocannabinoids from the hemp plant work with our bodies endocannabinoid system (ECS) to regulate a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.

If you imagine the body like a machine, each system works together to keep the machine moving. The immune system is like a filtration system, the brain is like the motherboard, and endocannabinoids help to maintain these systems.

Scientific Studies

Preclinical and clinical investigations have studied a wide variety of health benefits of Hemp Oil, in particular the cannabinoids and other biomolecules that are extracted from it, including:

Phytocannabinoids extracted from hemp have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects in vitro, in vivo, and ex vivo  [1, 2].  Inflammation has been linked to a host of diseases and health-related issues including many types of pain [3], neurological damage [4], diabetes [5], and arthritis [6].

Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury

Some studies have indicated that phytocannabinoids extracted from hemp may reduce epileptic seizures [8] and provide neuroprotective effects to potentially reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s [9].

People who suffer from anxiety [9]  and depression [10] may also benefit from the effects of phytocannabinoids extracted from hemp.

According to the National Institute of Health, manipulating the endocannabinoid system by introducing external phytocannabinoids could be useful in regulating a variety of other medical ailments, including:
