The Science of the Endocannabinoid System

What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Endocannabinoid System (ECS): is a unique communication system in the brain and body that affects many important functions including how a person feels, moves and interacts.

  • It is responsible for keeping our most critical biological functions in balance such as appetite, intestinal function, metabolism, stress response, sleep, mood, pain, immune function, and more by means of endocannabinoids or cannabinoids.
  • The ECS has preventative and protective mechanisms, it balances and strengthens the nervous and immune systems, initiates pain control and calms inflammation.
  • The ESC was discovered in 1990 and ongoing extensive research is being conducted ever since.
  • Understanding the ECS is a critical task if we are to more effectively manage diseases, especially chronic, debilitating diseases for which there is no orthodox cure. For instance, if properly activated, the ECS is capable of suppressing numerous cancers and may be protective against Alzheimer’s disease.

Endocannabinoids: are chemical compounds our bodies naturally make to activate the receptors within the ECS.

  • When the body gets out of balance and moved into a state of stress, endocannabinoids go to work to fix the problem.

Cannabinoids: chemical compounds originating outside the body. There are over 100 known compounds including CBD found in the whole hemp plant. CBD works as the switch that turns on the endocannabinoid system.

CBD prevents the breakdown of endocannabinoids, which helps to promote homeostasis to ensure optimal metabolic functions, nutrient transportation, energy storage and modulate insulin sensitivity.

Research as shown that small doses of cannabinoids from whole plant hemp can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors.

The ECS increases our ability to try have new perspectives and experiences. Evidence suggests that the ECS may be involved in generating subtle but therapeutic shifts in the ways we perceive the world, relate to our internal landscape, think and feel about ourselves, and interact with each other enhanced health and vitality now.

Understanding Endocannabinoids Deficiency
Through the stresses and strains of modern living, the Endocannabinoid System can itself become depleted, meaning it cannot effectively carry out its role of bringing homeostasis or balance to the body.

American neurologist Dr. Ethan Russo has termed this Endocannabinoid Deficiency, suggesting that it lies at the root of many of those difficult to explain illnesses such as fibromyalgia, MS, IBS and migraines.

According to Dr Russo, “If you don’t have enough endocannabinoids you have pain where there shouldn’t be pain.”

5 Signs of an Unbalanced ECS

1.You are particularly sensitive to pain
Scientists have noticed both endocannabinoid receptors play an important role in modulating pain and inflammation.
According to research, cannabinoids help reduce sensitivity to pain and inflammation caused by arthritis of all types like Rheumatoid arthritis, gout, osteoarthritis and other types of inflammatory joint conditions.
2.You are feeling anxious or depressed
CBD has been shown to reduce anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder and researchers suggest that it may also be effective for panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Cannabinoids were found to be therapeutic in treating PTSD through modulating panic responses both before and after painful and traumatic events.
3.You are addicted to junk food
4.You have a chronic inflammation related illness.
Almost all age-related illnesses have at their root chronic inflammation of some kind; everything from auto-immune disease, cancer, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and inflammatory bowel disease.
A 2004 study found that an endocannabinoid deficiency may underlie migraines.
5.You have a difficult to treat skin condition
Scientist believe that disruption to the endocannabinoid system’s balance might bring about the development of a whole host of skin diseases including acne, dermatitis, dry skin, hair loss, excessive hair growth, itching, skin tumors, pain, psoriasis and skin cancer.
One way of stimulating the skin’s ECS receptors is by topically applying cannabinoids such as CBD on-to the problem areas. If you have a chronic skin condition that doesn’t seem to respond to conventional medicine, it could be because your ECS is not functioning properly.
The ECS main purpose in the skin is to control and balance growth and survival of skin cells as well as to pro-duce proper immune responses.

6 Effective Ways to Boost Your ECS
1.Bump up Your Omega 3 Intake
Omega-3 fatty acids are vital for a well-functioning ECS
2.Exercise
Studies suggest the reported “runners high” is not caused by an endorphin rush but by an increase in the production of endocannabinoids.
3.Keep Your Gut Healthy
80 percent of your entire immune system is located in your digestive tract!
Without proper elimination, the body can actually poison itself. Poor diet, fast foods, stress and certain medications affect elimination
4.Eat Your Greens
Greens are abundant in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that protect cells.
5.Cut Down on Alcohol
Studies show that ethanol dampens the ECS.
6.Take Miracles of Health CBD Infused Products

How does Hemp Extract Elixir work?

Miracles of Health 100% Organic Hemp Extract Elixir is made from the highest quality hemp strains, proudly grown in northern Colorado. The full spectrum hemp extract contains significant levels of cannabidiol (CBD), as well as essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Compounds of the cannabis plant are being found to help regulate vital functions in the body.  Research continues to mount on the effectiveness of whole-plant extracts, which contain a full range of cannabinoids.

Miracles of Health 100% Organic Hemp extract Elixir contains rich levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and very low levels of tetrahydrocannbinol (THC). Hemp plants are a variety of the cannabis sativa plant species. Unlike marijuana plants, hemp plants contain trace amounts of THC and do not cause a high.

There are at least 60 different cannabinoids present in hemp plants. Studies have shown that these cannabinoids react with receptors and cellular pathways in the body. Research is ongoing to understand the full effects of the many cannabinoids, and there compound synergistic effect.

CBD, a prominent cannabinoid in hemp, interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system was first discovered in the late 1980’s, and has been found to regulate the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance. The body is able to make its own cannabinoids, called anandamide and 2-AG, which aid in many functions of the body. However, the endocannabinoid system can easily become out of balance, and supplementation with CBD has been shown to have significant benefits. CBD helps bring the entire body back into balance.

Scientists have identified that endocannabinoids interact with a specific neurological network, similar to the way endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine do. The ECS is a major physiological system and its receptors are found throughout the body. These receptors have large concentration in the immune system and make up the largest concentration of receptors in the brain. The Endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in memory, mood, hormone balance, movement, sleep quality, immune health, pain management, cognition, appetite and neuroprotection.

CBD works as the switch that turns on the endocannabinoid system. Research has shown that small doses of cannabinoids from whole plant hemp can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors. CBD also prevents the breakdown of the naturally occurring endocannabinoids, which promotes balance in the body.

CBD has shown promise in treating things such as anxiety, chronic pain, irritable bowl, cancer, fibromyalgia, MS, psoriasis, PTSD, dementia, addiction, seizures, arthritis and Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Miracles of Health 100% Organic Hemp Extract Elixir offers a unique and synergistic approach to activating receptors, pathways, and process throughout the body. This full spectrum Elixir invites you to experience the therapeutic value of hemp and bring your body back into a harmonious balance.

Benefits of taking Hemp Extract Elixir

The benefits of taking Miracles of Health 100% Organic Hemp Extract Elixir include:

– Reduced inflammation. CBD has been shown beneficial for multiple forms of inflammation related pain, including IBS, Crohn’s disease, and pancreatic issues.

– Increased sleep time and quality. Cannabinoids in hemp have shown to relieve stress, calm the mind, and restore peaceful sleep. Taken a few hours before bedtime, people report greatly improved sleep quality.

– Improved muscle relaxation. Cannabinoids can help by reducing pain and inflammation. Once inflammation has decreased, muscle tension will subside.

– Headache relief. Small studies conducted suggest that migraine sufferers may have a deficiency of endocannabinoids.  Taking a full spectrum product, that includes CBD, can help restore natural levels of endocannabinoids in the body and relieve symptoms.

– Reduced anxiety and stress. Studies have found CBD to be an inhibitor of anxiety. It is being studied for its antipsychotic and antidepressant qualities.

– PTSD relief. Cannabinoids have been found to be therapeutic in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by protecting the brain from damage done by physical and emotional trauma. Forgetting bad memories is a crucial function of the endocannabinoid system. 

– Increased neuroplasticity. A healthy Endocannabinoid System (ECS) increases our ability to have new perspectives and experiences. When we try new things, we literally change our brain functions for the better in a process called neuroplasticity. Evidence suggests that the ECS may be involved in generating subtle but therapeutic shifts in the ways we perceive the world, relate to our internal landscape, think and feel about ourselves, and interact with each other.

– Protection from neurodegeneration. The endocannabinoid system helps maintain balance within the central nervous system, and its receptors. Research is ongoing to study cannabinoids and their positive effects on the brain. Studies have shown that cannabinoids reduce inflammation, which is a root cause of many neurological disorders. Cannabinoids may also be able to slow the accumulation of protein in the brain, which is thought to be a contributing factor in Alzheimers disease.

– Safer pain management. The effectiveness of cannabinoids for managing pain continues to be shown in different studies. Given the side effects and highly addictive qualities of prescription pain medication, cannabinoids are a promising option for safer treatment.

– Reduced PMS symptoms. The hemp extract cannabinoids enter your body through the endocannabinoid receptors and help create and release calming chemicals that improve your mood. In addition, the cannabinoids help with inflammation, pain, irritability, and cramping.

– Nausea relief. CBD has been shown to bind with receptors and turn off the signals in the brain that cause nausea. Cannabinoids have also become widely accepted as a way to help treat nausea and loss of appetite in cancer patients.

– Digestive relief. Cannabinoids can reduce inflammation, calm cramping, and treat diarrhea.

– Decreased social anxiety. Studies have shown that cannabinoids can help calm the amygdala, which is the part of the brain that controls fear.

– Possible symptom relief for those with seizures, cancer, diabetes, fibromyalgia, and other neurological disorders. Ground breaking research continues to be done on the use of both hemp and marijuana products for treating a multitude of disorders. Several scientific reports demonstrate that CBD benefits include possessing anti-proliferative, pro-apoptotic effects that inhibit cancer cell migration, adhesion and invasion.

 

 

Uses for Hemp Extract Elixir

Do You Know How Hemp Can Help Improve your life?

What is Full Spectrum Hemp Extract?
When you start with the finest raw ingredients, the process of turning whole botanicals that organically grown and expertly picked, into premium supplements is crucially important. To do this, Miracles of Health believes in the Full-Spectrum method of extraction.  

The Full-Spectrum extraction method keeps all the cannabinoids from the botanical as close to its natural makeup as possible in order to maintain the plant’s natural integrity and balance, enhancing its overall therapeutic effects and keeping the extract as close to the original plant as possible. 

What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are therapeutic compounds found in the hemp plant.  There are over 100 identified cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. There are two categories of cannabinoids:

  • External (cannabinoids), originating outside the body
  • Internal, originating inside the body, known as endocannabinoids, which again are compounds naturally produced by the human body.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive, naturally occurring cannabinoid found in industrial hemp.

  • CBD is extracted from specific varieties of hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 85 chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant.
  • CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts.
  • CBD is NOT marijuana because it contains less than 0.29% of THC. Marijuana has a THC content of 0.3% or higher.
  • CBD helps to bring the entire body back into balance.
  • Cannabidoil, CBD, is rapidly becoming an accepted means of relief from anxiety and inflammation.
  • CBD is known to be an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spams, anti-convulsant, anti-psychotic, and anti-tumoral.
  • CBD also directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-depressant effect.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to assist in healing various conditions such as anxiety, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic pain, crohn’s disease, diabetes, nausea, IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, schizophrenia, strokes and more. 

Important Terms to Understand
Cannabis: hemp, industrial hemp, whole plant hemp, and marijuana are all synonyms for cannabis. There is zero dif-ference between hemp, industrial hemp and whole plant hemp. 

  • What makes Marijuana different from hemp is strictly THC content.
  • 0.3% THC or higher = Marijuana

What Are the Potential Benefits

Scientific and clinical studies underscore CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions  including: arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders.

Used for Neurodegeneration
The ECS helps maintain an up/down balance within the central nervous system.

  • Cannabinoid receptors are important in the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease and cannabinoids succeed in preventing the neurodegenerative process occurring in the disease.
  • In a 2007 study found that targeting the ECS might be useful for the treatment of MS.
  • CBD may represent a very promising agent with the highest protective therapeutic uses in the treatment of neurodegenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease.

Used for Anxiety
CBD has shown to reduce anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder and researchers suggest that it may also be effective for panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. 

  • Studies have found CBD to be an inhibitor of anxiety, to be antipsychotic, and an antidepressant.
  • A 2009 discovery in Israel showed that the fear center of the brain contains a significant number of endocannabinoid receptors.
  • Cannabinoids were found to be therapeutic in treating PTSD through modulating panic responses both before and after painful and traumatic events.

What Are the Potential Benefits 

Used for Chronic Inflammation Related Illness

  • Almost all age-related illnesses have at their root chronic inflammation of some kind; everything from autoimmune disease, cancer, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and inflammatory bowel disease.
  • CBD has shown huge benefits for multiple forms of inflammation related pain including IBS, Crohn’s disease and pancreatic issues.
  • A 2004 study found that an endocannabinoid deficiency may underlie migraines.
  • Studies report patients suffering from illnesses as diverse as Parkinson’s, MS, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease are finding relief from their symptoms and even possibly slowing down the on-set of the disease through consuming cannabis.

Used for Skin Disorders

  • As the largest organ in the body, it should come as little surprise that the endocannabinoid system is also present in our skin. Scientist’s believe that disruption to the endocannabinoid system’s balance might bring about the development of a whole host of skin diseases including acne, dermatitis, dry skin, hair loss, ex-cessive hair growth, itching, skin tumors, pain, psoriasis and skin cancer.
  • One way of stimulating the skin’s ECS receptors is by topically applying cannabinoids such as CBD onto the problem areas.
  • The ECS’s main purpose in the skin is to control and balance growth and survival of skin cells as well as to produce proper immune responses.

 

Common Questions about Hemp Extract Elixer

Is Full Spectrum Hemp Elixir legal in all 50 states?

CBD Oil from industrial hemp is legal in all 50 States because the initial product, hemp, contains no traceable amounts of THC, and therefore is legal to transport across State lines. Although the DEA considers CBD oil to be a federally illegal Schedule I drug, there are temporary safeguards in place that protect patients in many states from federal prosecution over possession of the oil. 

How long does Full Spectrum Hemp Elixir take to work? 

CBD generally can take from a few minutes to a couple of hours to work properly, depending on the dosage, the method of consumption and the symptom you want to combat. When taking enough, it generally only takes 20-30 minute for it to become effective. The feeling is subtle and usually identified as a subtle calming. After several uses, many people have reported that they notice it taking the edge off minutes after administering. 

What is the best way to take Full Spectrum Hemp Elixir?

Taking your Elixir sublingually is one of the fastest method of absorption, giving you relief within minutes. Applying Miracle Choice Hemp Extract topically leads to relatively slow and uniform absorption, ensuring that the skin remains moisturized and receives the benefits of the cannabinoids over a longer period of time.

If you put your CBD oil in a drink or food, you have to wait longer for the effects, but you are also safe from side effects like headaches and dysphoria.

The approach we recommend is to begin taking a particular amount, twice a day for the first 3-4 days to build it up in your system and so you can truly see what its doing.  After this amount of time, increase or decrease the amount you’re taking based on the results you’re seeing. 

What should I look for when purchasing a Full Spectrum Hemp product?

Look for products with clear labels showing the quantity of CBD per dose, a best by date, and a lot number (for quality control). Select products with quality ingredients: No corn syrup, transfats, GMOs, artificial additives, thinning agents or preservatives. CBD-rich products should be lab tested for consistency and verified as being free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants.

Best to avoid products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons. Opt for products that utilize safer extraction methods such as Vapor Distillation.  

What are the differences between a whole plant Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and a CBD isolate product?

Single-molecule CBD is less effective therapeutically than whole plant CBD-rich hemp oil extract. Scientific studies have established that synthetic, single-molecule CBD has a very narrow therapeutic window. Whether synthesized in a pharmaceutical lab or derived from industrial hemp, single-molecule CBD lacks critical secondary cannabinoids and other medicinal compounds. These compounds interact with CBD to enhance their therapeutic benefits. Scientists call this the entourage effect. Numerous cannabis compounds have medicinal attributes, but the therapeutic impact of whole plant cannabis is greater than the sum of its parts. 

Can you take too much Hemp Extract?

Hemp Extract behaves as a non-toxic compound. Studies show that doses of 700 milligrams per day for 6 weeks did not show any overt toxicity in humans, suggesting that it can be used for prolonged treatment. CBD has no known adverse side effects, but an excessive amount of CBD could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose. Less is more is often the case with respect to cannabis therapy. 

Can I take Hemp Extract while taking other medications?

Cannibidiol (CBD) is a prominent compound in Hemp Extract. At sufficient dosages, CBD will temporarily deactivate cyrochrome P450 enzymes, which are abundantly found in grapefruit.  CBD is a more potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 than the grapefruit compound Berapten. So ask your doctor if grapefruit interacts with your medication. If grapefruit does, then CBD probably does, too.

 Patients on a CBD-rich treatment regimen should monitor changes in blood levels of prescription medications and, if need be, adjust dosage. 

Will taking Hemp Extract make me feel high? 

THC is the compound in cannabis plants that makes one “high”.  The amount of THC in hemp is so negligible that we’re not aware of anyone ever reporting feeling “high”.  Also, we have not heard of anyone becoming addicted to Hemp Extract. 

Will I fail a drug test when taking Hemp Extract?

Although hemp extract contains only trace amounts of THC, we cannot say with 100% certainty that you will pass a drug test when consuming the product. 

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)? 

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is one of the body’s major chemical systems that enables communication between the brain and body. The ECS maintains equilibrium within the body and is responsible for critical functions such as appetite, digestion, metabolism, stress response, sleep, mood, pain response, immune function, and movement.

What can cause the Endocannabinoid System to become deficient?

Chronic stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, overconsumption of alcohol, and under consumption of Omega 3s are all possible causes of a depleted Endocannabinoid system. 

How do I know if I have an Endocannabinoid deficiency? 

Signs of an unbalanced Endocannabinoid System can include a high sensitivity to pain, anxious or depressed feelings, junk food addiction, chronic inflammation related illnesses, and difficult to treat skin conditions.

Can a deficient Endocannabinoid system lead to disease? 

According to evolving research, a deficient Endocannabinoid system may be the underlying cause of conditions such as migraines, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowl. There is also evidence to support that an unbalanced EC system may contribute to dysfunctional immune functions, fatigue, mood disorders, chronic pain and PTSD.

Why is Hemp Extract Elixir so expensive?

There are many steps and much plant material required to produce the end product.  First, a substantial amount of hemp has to be grown, which is done here in the United States, in a USDA certified organic facility. Then the hemp oil is extracted using a unique NES vapor extraction method, ensuring the cleanest, purest, terpene-rich hemp extract.  Then, the extract has to be extensively tested to ensure its quality and potency.  Finally, the extract is then formulated with either 100% organic extra virgin olive oil, or 100% certified organic coconut oil to produce the various products that we carry in our Hemp Extract line.  Each entity during the production process needs to earn a fair profit for their efforts, which is how we price our products.

The best way to compare prices of Hemp CBD products is to break each product down to a “cost per milligram of CBD”.

– Cannabis has many historical roots. The Chinese were using it as medicine thousands of years ago. George Washington grew hemp at his home. For most of United States history, cannabis was legal and used in tinctures and extracts.

When cannabis was labeled as a drug, medical research involving the plant came to a stop. It is only in the most recent years that large amounts of people are turning back to the cannabis plants to treat ailments. Research on the many remedies of cannabinoids, chief among them cannabidiol (CBD), has begun again.

– The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the largest neurotransmitter system in the body. Endocannabinoids naturally occur in the body and connect it with the parts of the brain that control mood, appetite, and pain.
The body can become deficient in endocannabinoids, and become out of balance. This deficiency is being studied as an underlying cause in many medical conditions.

In addition to consuming a Hemp-based full-spectrum cannabinoid supplement to promote a healthy ECS, other steps can be taken to boost your endocannabinoid production.
– Increase your Omega 3 Intake

What is Full Moon?

Full Moon is a 100% natural herbal blend, which includes Wild Yam & Dong Quai, to support female hormone stability. The unique herbal complex supports health during and following menopause. 

Full Moon is a specific blend of high potency herbs to optimize female hormonal balance while promoting a healthy emotional state. It is cultivated in accordance with nature’s intent by proving rich natural sources of phytoestrogens.

Many women of all ages are experiencing remarkable results from Full Moon. This formula provides the body with all the building blocks it needs to make the appropriate amount of hormones on its own, naturally.  Full Moon is an effective natural hormone replacement formula that supports the body’s production of estrogen and progesterone in amounts that a woman requires.

How Does Full Moon work?

Throughout a woman’s lifetime, her body naturally goes through transitional hormonal states. These times of hormone imbalance often cause various physical and mental changes in a woman’s body. Keeping the body and mind balanced through the hormonal fluctuations of PMS and menopause is vital to maintaining an optimal quality of life. Full Moon was created to naturally support a woman’s body by establishing hormonal stability.

One of the ingredients in Full Moon, Wild Yam, is a rich source of natural progesterone. When ingested, the body easily and safely converts diosgenin into progesterone. Wild Yam helps to maintain a balance of hormones in the body.

Dong Quai is another main ingredient found in Full Moon. The Chinese have used Dong Quai for centuries to treat all female problems. Dong Quai has phytoestrogens that exhibit estrogenic activity. In fact, the phytoestrogens in Dong Quai are virtually identical to the estrogen produced by the body. The two molecules are so similar that the body can recognize the phytoestrogens from Dong Quai as its own estrogen – another example of nature healing nature! Dong Quai has the ability to balance estrogen levels, ease PMS symptoms, and relieve anxiety.

Each of the remaining herbs in Full Moon are well known for their ability to relieve menstrual related problems. Today we can choose healthier methods for correcting hormone imbalances and preserve the beauty and health of a woman.
