NEK Hemp products are rich with Full Spectrum phytocannabinoids that activate our endocannabinoid system [ECS]. Our ECS mirrors the central nervous system and maintains homeostasis in our body. CBD, in particular, helps treat a wide range of symptoms by binding to both CB1 and CB2 receptors. By interacting with the body through several other biological pathways, Full Spectrum CBD produces therapeutic effects by activating multiple pathways at once.
CBD is not psychoactive and is actually effective as a way to balance the THC “high”:
At a molecular level, CBD does the opposite of what THC does. CBD is an inverse agonist to CB1 receptors, where THC is an agonist. When CBD and THC are taken together, CBD has the potential to curb the negative side effects of THC by activating a reverse response from CB1 receptors.
CBD shows promise in many areas, with a growing body of evidence that it can be an effective therapy. Research has shown CBD can help treat these conditions:
- Pain Relief and Inflammation
- Epilepsy and Seizure
- Addiction Treatment
- Anxiety and Depression
