There is no doubt that by now, you have heard of CBD and the miraculous effects it’s publicized to have on everything from stress and anxiety to chronic pain and inflammation. Millions of people worldwide have jumped on the CBD spirit train, hoping this hemp compound will be the miracle cure we’ve been searching for to ease all our ailments like the fountain of youth! But, sadly and not surprisingly, most of us have found that CBD falls short of the rejuvenation we envisioned. What a let-down, but all hope is not lost!
Even though CBD didn’t deliver all the wonderous benefits that we were all hoping to ease our pain, we weren’t entirely wrong to believe in this popular isolated plant compound. CBD does have some beneficial effects in the human body, but unless it’s working with the entire team of compounds from the hemp plant, it’s just not as effective as we all wanted to believe.
You see, the hemp plant that produces this would be “magic bullet,” actually contains more than 80 compounds that work together synergistically to support physiological systems in the body. When they all work together, they are at their best! So, isolating one of these compounds, like CBD, just isn’t going to provide enough support to make a noticeable difference.
Think of it like this, Tom Brady is touted as the greatest quarterback of all time, but without the rest of the team working with him, he would be practically useless! That’s exactly how it is with CBD … CBD is the Tom Brady of Hemp Oil!
In fact, there’s one particular hemp compound called Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP), that studies have shown has a much more direct interaction with receptors in the body, greatly influencing pain and inflammation! BCP is a natural constituent of hemp, clove, black pepper, and other plants. In fact, of all the compounds in hemp, its pain-fighting benefits are second to none!
Here’s what the science says… BCP possesses some excellent levels of therapeutic benefits, which are mostly associated with its interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body. The endocannabinoid system is made up of two crucial receptors that control cognitive responses like hunger, pain, appetite, and internal balance. While the CB1 receptor is found mainly in the central nervous system and peripheral organs, CB2 receptors are primarily expressed in the immune system. Information from research has shown that BCP can interact with the CB2 receptors to produce a wide range of activities, including those relating to pain relief, promotion of normal digestive health, providing support to the nervous system, relieving soreness, and assisting the body in maintaining normal inflammatory responses.
BCP combined with CBD, and all the other natural hemp compounds (called phytocannabinoids) work together, as an entire football team, to score maximum relief!
