Homeostasis

Our bodies are composed of eleven major organ systems: nervous, respiratory, circulatory,
muscular, endocrine, immune, lymphatic, skeletal, integumentary, reproductive, and the digestive
system.

These act in conjunction with one another to keep our bodies functioning; the goal
always being to maintain something called, homeostasis. This term is defined as the body’s
stable internal environment. Our cells are constantly seeking to be in this state of equilibrium.
Our Whole Plant Hemp Flour can be used to supplement the body’s own systems and work alongside our own natural
defenses and mechanisms to cultivate overall wellness in the body. For example, Hemp Flour is an
excellent antioxidant that can attach and remove free radicals created by the body as a result of
oxidative stress. Hemp Flour is also non-psychoactive; therefore, one can appreciate the therapeutic
benefits without experiencing the psychological effects of feeling as though one is under the
influence of it.

The means by Hemp Flour interacts with the body is via the endocannabinoid system, which
regulates specific tasks in the body, such as immune responses, memory, mood, temperature, and
appetite, for instance. Cannabinoids found in Hemp Flour, act like the
natural cannabinoids produced by the body. Similar to these, Hemp Flour will bind to cannabinoid
receptors, which will trigger the release of chemicals in the brain, called neurotransmitters.
These molecules communicate with other cells and transmit messages that function to maintain a
stable internal environment, i.e. homeostasis.
