“Cannabis finally goes mainstream with hemp available just about everywhere from gas stations to hemp specialty shops. Why has it become so popular? The answer is simple – hemp acts at a very high level in the body’s regulatory systems. These regulatory systems in turn have cascading effects on all of the biological processes in the body, from digestion, to immunity, to pain, to almost anything you can think of. Thus hemp acts in a holistic way to bring the entire body back to a greater state of health and well being.
To get an appropriate perspective, it’s useful to remember that all vertebrates, with humans presumptively being the most evolutionarily advanced member of the group, rely on the endocannabinoid system to homeostatically regulate every human body system (circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous, muscular, reproductive, skeletal, and skin).
Metabolism is what drives all living systems by maintaining the flowing energy that drives the complexity of life. Efficient carbohydrate metabolism drives creation (through activation of cannabinoid receptor 1), while cellular/organ maintenance (repair, recycling, and reconstruction) is driven by fat burning (through activation of cannabinoid receptor 2). The balance of these two metabolic subdivisions determines health and longevity.
