The Hemp boom is here and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon. Celebrities and Hollywood elites have been documented singing the praises of the compound across news and social media outlets. From Melissa McCarthy rubbing Hemp oil on her feet before the Oscars, to Kim Kardashian, who threw a CBD-themed baby shower, Hemp is all the rage in Hollywood. High end retailers have also taken notice, Barneys opened a cannabis and Hemp lifestyle shop in Beverly Hills, and Saks Fifth Avenue opened a similar type boutique inside their flagship store in Manhattan.
The benefits of using Hemp tinctures and other products are still being researched by the medical community. All the same, we’ve seen a wide variety of Hemp infused products from mascara to facial masks. But, some might ask why are we seeing Hemp in beauty products? Kim Kardashian would tell you what she thinks, and the team over at Saks 5th Avenue would strongly agree, but sometimes not all endorsements come from the rich and famous. Some come from medical professionals. Hervé Damas, MD, a physician in the Florida medical cannabis practice recently told Health.com about what he tells patients concerning using CBD.
After reading Dr. Damas’s testimony it would make sense to wonder how taking a Hemp oil can help. The answer lies in how Hemp works with our bodies in general and the root cause of the issue. Humans have an endocannabinoid system that responds to external cannabinoids, what are called phytocannabinoids. Hemp is an example of a phytocannabinoid. When you eatHempD 750mg gummies it tells your body to make more of our naturally produced endocannabinoids like 2-AG. The CB1 and CB2 receptors that makeup our endocannabinoid system impact a number of bodily functions and responses in different ways.
Essentially, when the right receptor receives the proper amount of endocannabinoids it tells the body to ease back or reup. We’re still learning about the benefits and uses of CBD, but what we do know already is very beneficial. If you’re new to Hemp and looking to try it to see what it can do for you, start with a vanilla Hemp oil drop and add it to your morning coffee. You can always try the Sugar and Kush Hemp bath bombs for a nice luxuriating hot soak.
