Hemp – health and wellness

A holistic and scientific book of great practical value

When it comes to health and wellbeing science is now supporting the anecdotal wisdom of the ancient sages with measured evidence. We need to be consciously aware of the interconnectivity between our biology, thoughts and emotions (our body, mind and spirit). If we ignore the wisdom dis-ease will ensue, when we unify our 3 states samadhi is obtainable in this life.

A holistic approach to wellbeing may include; feelings and thoughts of unconditional love for self, complete acceptance of the world beyond our being and the addition of phytocannabinoids via food to balance and regulate our endocannabinoid system.

Some health and wellbeing products available today for topical and internal use containing cannabinoids from hemp leaf, flower, stem, root and or seed. Not all legal here in Australia, the dumbed down country.

As recently as 1992 Professor Raphael Mechoulam, an organic chemist and professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel, who has been researching cannabis for more than 50 years discovered the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) a previously unknown biochemical communication system in the human body which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.

By 1963, Mechoulam and his research partners had revealed the structure of cannabidiol (CBD), a key ingredient in cannabis. By the following year they had isolated tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for the first time, established its structure and synthesized it.

Further years of collaborative research showed that THC is the key ingredient that activates specific receptors in the brain just as similar chemicals in the human body do. These compounds work with the receptors to protect against many symptoms and conditions, including the nausea caused by chemotherapy and the pain from degenerative muscular diseases.

It is an established scientific fact that cannabinoids and other components of cannabis can modulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that trigger cannabinoid (and other) receptors. More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant. In addition to cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous cannabinoids (such as anandamide and 2AG) that occur naturally in the mammalian brain and body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids created by pharmaceutical researchers.
