Natural, plant based remedies are based on the philosophy that the body, mind and emotions are not really separate and distinct, but are actually fully integrated.
Prolonged emotional stress can cause physical problems, like upset stomach, difficulty in digesting foods, poor nutrient assimilation, weaker immune system, sleeplessness, etc. The opposite is also true. Illness and physical problems can result in anxiety or emotional uneasiness.
Like the hemp plant, which produces cannabinoids (or phytocannabinoids), the human body (and the bodies of all mammals) also produces cannabinoids (or endocannabinoids). Our bodies have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is comprised of a series of biochemical receptors that have a single purpose of accepting cannabinoids.
Endocannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system to regulate various physiological and cognitive processes including appetite, pain sensation, memory, mood, the regulation of immune system functions, and in handling the pharmacological effects of hemp. The ECS is also involved in mediating some of the physiological and cognitive effects of physical exercise, such as contributing to exercise-induced euphoria (i.e., runner’s high).
The primary objective of the ECS is to keep the mind and body in homeostasis. As such, it is literally the bridge between the mind and body.
We recommend that pregnant or nursing women consult a health practitioner.

Many stores in the United Kingdom sell Hemp based products as an herbal remedy, and sales are skyrocketing. There are over 1,000 new users of these products in the UK per month.
People are buying Hemp based products for various reasons including treating acne, relieving stress, quitting cigarette smoking, and to alleviate pain related to fibromyalgia and MS. For acne, buyers rub the chosen product directly onto affected skin areas. For other ailments, a few drops of the tincture are placed under the tongue, as needed.
What most consumers of these Hemp based products in the UK don’t realize, however, is they are relatively ineffective. This is because they lack purity and therefore end up altered or manipulated artificially. Where we use the whole plant to create our Hemp Flour (the base for all our products) and we use all the goodness from the Hemp plant with no alteration made. Furthermore, the products are often not bioavailable, meaning that it is eliminated by the liver before it can be passed along to other vital organs and the nervous system, where ours is 98% bio available – so you soak in even more goodness and there’s a lot less waste (therefore better value for money, too).
Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring substance that is one of over 100 biochemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in hemp.
