Everywhere you turn someone is talking about Hemp CBD Oil. Even Hemp-Ology sells Hemp CBD Oil. The number one question we sell asked is: how does it work? Of course there are also the questions about getting high from Hemp CBD Oil and the legality of Hemp CBD Oil.
How does Hemp CBD Oil Work?
CBD Oil contains cannabidiol, which interacts with the endocannabinoid (ECS) system. The ECS is made up of millions of cannabidnoid receptor sites. There are CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are mostly found in the brain, connective tissue, central nervous system, organs, gonads, and glands. The CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune system, and can also be present in the liver, heart, kidneys, spleen, bones, blood vessels, lymph cells, reproductive organs and the endocrine glands.
The human body always seeks to maintain homeostasis, or more easily states as balancing bodily functions. The endocannabinoid system maintains equilibrium in the body by seeking to correct anything that gets out of balance including mood, sleep, hormones, fertility, memory, energy, anxiety, immune response, appetite, pain and more. Dr. Dustin Sulak states, “In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.”
The human body produces cannabidnoid, however it is possible to have cannabinoid deficiency. In a study on PubMed Dr. Russo explains, ““Migraine, fibromyalgia, IBS and related conditions display common clinical, biochemical and pathophysiological patterns that suggest an underlying clinical endocannabinoid deficiency that may be suitably treated with cannabinoid medicines.”
According to the article, 5 health signs your endocannabinoid system is out of balance by Endocoa, “This balance or ‘endocannabinoid tone’ is dependant on the optimum expression of the two main endocannabinoid receptors: the CB1 receptor found principally in the brain and central nervous system and the CB2 receptors in the peripheral nervous system, gut and immune system. If there is too much CB1 activity there might be metabolic problems such as diabetes and obesity. Not enough CB2 receptors could lead to excess inflammation. Likewise the production of too much or too little of the body’s endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG accompany health conditions as varied as depression, PTSD, autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases.”
The average American diet has not contained cannabinoids, until recently with the rise of Hemp CBD oil, which contains cannabidiol as well as over 85 other cannabinoids.
Will Hemp CBD Oil Make Me High?
Hemp CBD Oil contains cannabidiol (CBD) without the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) of marijuana. Both hemp and marijuana come from the same species of plant Cannabis Sativa L., however that is where the similarities end. Hemp is cultivated for the seeds, hurd and fiber and has completely different functions and applications. Marijuana is cultivated for the flowering buds, which are the source of THC. Hemp is said to have 25,000 uses. Marijuana has 2 uses—medical and recreational use.
The hemp plant contains a high level of cannabidiol (CBD) and only trace amounts of THC (regulated to 0.3%), while the marijuana plant is the opposite with a 5-30% THC content and 1-4% CBD content. The answer to your question about getting high on Hemp CBD Oils is that it would be a futile effort. Ministry of Hemp puts it this way, “Your lungs will fail before your brain attains any high from smoking industrial hemp.”
Is Hemp CBD Oil Legal?

This is be a big reason why consumers are turning to mail order Hemp CBD Oil.
