The Endocannabinoid System & you

Your body is filled with possibilities.  Some good, some… well, we wish could be better.  The good thing is that all human beings are equipped with the ability to change.  Change is inevitable!  One way your body can change for the better is by activating a process or making and receiving cells through a network or web that scientists and the medical community call, the Endocannabinoid System.  Due to stresses placed on the body, your Endocannabinoid System creates its own cannabinoids to try and keep processes in balance.  The receptors are called CB 1 and CB2 receptors and are found throughout and in the body.  These sites are intended to create and absorb endocannabinoids (internal) or phytocannabinoids (a plant source like Origin 1).  Further research is ongoing but the international scientific community (fewer restrictions on cannabis as far as scientific grants that create studies) furthermore shows that an increase in cannabinoids leads to a better function in the areas where CB 1 and CB2 receptors are found.  So, adding phytocannabinoids to your body means you have the potential to improve certain aspects of your life.  

*This internal system was discovered by scientists in 1990 by identifying CB1 receptors and then later finding CB2 receptors in 1993. 

*In 1992 the US Government filed for 2 US patents.  The first patent named cannabinoids as a neuroprotectant while the second patent filed it as an anti-epileptic.  If the US Government knew that cannabinoids were an important part of modulating these internal processes, why is cannabis so taboo?  The answer: public perception.  Change yours and try cannabis for your health and well-being.  It’s one of the only plants that are non-toxic to animals and humans and has a history of use dating beyond the Egyptians and biblical times.  In fact, the holy oil used in the Bible lists Kaneh- Bosem (cannabis flower) as one of the key ingredients- Exodus 30:23.

Phytocannabinoids: A Full Spectrum Introduction

120 phytocannabinoids and counting.  We give you what the plant contains.  Which is why starting from a clean and tested source of Origin is so important.  In addition to supplying you our mg strength of CBD you furthermore get the potential for additional phytocannabinoids : CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDA, THCA, THC, CBGA… all from one plant type and one closed loop company process.  The more we can offer you in our bottle, the more opportunities you’ll have in creating internal balance as the molecules are absorbed at the CB1 and CB2 receptor sites.   A comparable example would be to consider how proteins and carbohydrates work in replenishing the body.  One drives the other to where it needs to be.  The same is true of phytocannabinoids and how your body absorbs them.  Depending on your body and the demands placed on all its processes, the more phytonutrients you offer your body, the more you will notice an improvement over a variety of issues.  So let the symphony of phytonutrients replenish your body, mind and spirit with a Full Spectrum of phytocannabinoids.  

If you are using a hemp extract and the bottle says it’s full spectrum but is THC free, it isn’t full spectrum.  Full-spectrum includes all parts of the plant: native plant terpenes (the essential oils of the plant), flavinoids, and all the molecules known as phytocannabinoids which include THC.  We include everything the plant material will give us through our extraction process to give you: THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT (Origin 1 Tincture, Gel Cap, and Topicals are Entourage Effect Products).  The Entourage Effect is the outcome of all these Full Spectrum phytocannabinoids reaching your body’s internal processes and like a band conductor before an orchestra, the right notes are played for your ears to hear, listen and enjoy.  Grok the Bindu indeed!

Pets & people: a connection beyond love

Cannabis is more than good for just you.   The cannabis plant has served as a food source for animals and humans for over 5000 years.  Which means we have something in common with our furry pals, an Endocannabinoid System.  We have various offerings for pets but depending on the stresses your pet is dealing with and their size, some experimentation in how many drops to give may be needed.   Using our Origin 1, 500mg. full extract product and placing it on their treat is a great way for them to absorb their phytocannabinoids.  So if your pet is endocannabinoid deficient, please see your vet and discuss ORIGIN 1 with them.
