This is HEMP

Pure Plant Power

“We are on the tipping point; our planet and people here are suffering…for too long now we have been under the shadow of government and dark forces that have taken our power and abilities to heal naturally. The pharmaceutical companies have monopolized our healthcare and we have been misguided into believing that we have no abilities and out instincts have been diluted.

Nature has all of the answers, we need to take back our power, align with our natural instincts and allow the benefits of Mother Nature to nourish our being.

It is known to us that Jesus used special anointment oils that had almost magical power, curing a range of illnesses from skin diseases to eye infections. However, what he might have been using in these oils is still under scientific scrutiny. One of the theories is that the crucial ingredient used was cannabis oil.

The tomb of an Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses II was discovered with a mummy containing particles of kief, tiny crystals that cover the cannabis plant. The usage of it in religious purposes precedes Jesus.

In Hindu texts from as far as 1400 BC, cannabis is celebrated and revered as a sacred plant. It all points to the fact that this plant has a long history of usage in spiritual purposes, making it easy to believe that Jesus could have used it also. It is important in Ayurvedic medicine archaeologists and history has shown us that a lot of people and religions used cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Hemp has been one of the most significant crops for mankind up until this last century. Hemp was probably the earliest plant cultivated for textile fibres. Archaeologists found a remnant of hemp cloth in ancient Mesopotamia (currently Iran and Iraq), which dates back to 8,000 BC. Hemp is also believed to be the oldest example of human industry. In the Lu Shi, a Chinese work of the Sung dynasty (500 AD), we find reference to the Emperor Shen Nung (28th century BC) who taught his people to cultivate hemp for cloth. It is believed that hemp made it to Europe in approximately 1,200 BC. From there, it spread throughout the ancient world.

China appears to have the longest continuous history of Hemp cultivation (over 6000 years). France has cultivated Hemp for at least 700 years to the present day, Spain and Chile similarly. Russia was a major grower/ supplier for hundreds of years.

The Chinese were the first to recognize the usefulness of hemp in paper making. In approximately 150 BC, they produced the world’s first paper, completely from hemp. The oldest documents written on paper are Buddhist texts from the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, composed of a mixture of bark and old rags, principally hemp. Hemp has been used as medicine throughout the world for centuries. Folk remedies and ancient medicines refer to the curative values of the leaves, seeds and roots. The seed and flowers were recommended for difficult childbirth, convulsions, arthritic joints, rheumatism, dysentery and insomnia.

During the middle ages, hemp became an important crop of enormous economic and social value supplying much of the world’s need for food and fibre. Sailing ships became dependent on Canvas (from the word cannabis), hemp rope and oakum due to it being 3 times stronger than Cotton and resistant to salt water. In the UK, in 1535 Henry VIII passed an act compelling all landowners to sow 1/4 of an acre, or be fined. During this period hemp was a major crop and up to the 1920’s 80% of clothing was made from Hemp textiles.

All humans and animals have cannabis receptors in their body cells. The cannabis receptors in human’s case are mostly concentrated in the brain and immune system (CBD1 and CBD2) CBD, short for cannabidiol, is yet another of the amazing nutrient compounds found in the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients who are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) has important body functions like regulating appetite, stress, sleep and muscle relaxation.

The endocannabinoid system-ECS or the endogenous cannabinoid system was named after cannabis and it’s compounds because this natural plant led to the discovery of this crucial physiological system.

The system is made of up endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors, which help regulate many of our most basic functions like sleep and appetite, well-being and health.

Endocannabinoids are naturally produced in the body and cannabis consumption increases the amount of endocannabinoids present in the body.

The function of endocannabinoids and their receptors is to maintain homeostasis in the organism at cell level by reversing and repairing damage in whatever way possible.

The Cannabinoid (CB) receptors can be found throughout the whole body-there are two main ones-CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are mostly found in the brain with some present in the lung, kidney, liver, fat, heart, muscle, and bone.

CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system, and blood cells but both can be found in the same tissues providing different functions.

CB1 receptors are mostly responsible for the psychoactive and euphoric effects of THC.

On the other hand, CB2 receptors mostly work in the immune system, but they are also present in the liver, gut, muscle, and bone.

Generally speaking the CB1 and CB2 receptors stimulate healing when activated within the areas of the body they are located.

Receptors are similar to locks, and the cannabinoids are the keys.

The activity of CB1 and CB2 receptors will begin a biological process stimulating regeneration and repair of damage and or disease within the body, returning it to homeostasis.

This also applies to mental health damage because endocannabinoids can aid in balancing mood and rectifying mental health issues.

The primary job of the endocannabinoids system is to promote homeostasis, which maintains a stable internal environment despite changes in the external environment.

The fact that the endocannabinoid system is connected with most of our basic functions reveals why cannabis is such a powerful medicinal nutrient and is successfully treating many medical conditions.

According to one study, the endocannabinoid system is a naturally evolved harm reduction system.

Endocannabinoid levels naturally increase after injuries to the head, illustrating the bodies awareness of the sudden lack of homeostasis and the use of endocannabinoids as a remedy.

Endocannabinoids have been assigned to fix biochemical imbalances that come in damaged or diseased states.

From birth, cannabinoids are presented to us within mother’s milk.

These Cannabinoids are present in the breast milk of all mammals.

For me that simply says it all…

Cannabinoids are Nature’s essential, power packed, medicinal nutrients.

The endocannabinoid system is vital to function, regenerate, repair & heal, & ingesting cannabinoids is vital to this natural healing process and to sustain Life.

After consuming/applying CBD, the cannabinoid receptors are activated and attach to cell surfaces.
