We at theSensationalists LOVE products that are all natural, organic, produced conscientiously by conscientious communities, and act as superfoods for the mind and body.
We’ve been listening to the growing chatter about hemp oil, its benefits on our health, and the miracle stories of people who have used it. This got us pretty excited and curious! So we dug a little deeper and found some scientific studies that support the hype, because hey, some people love stats and numbers.
There have been several research studies recently published that show the positive effects of CBD (cannabidiol), a non-psychoactive compound found in both cannabis sativa and cannabis indica plants. It has had profound effects on certain health issues such as:
1. Significantly reducing anxiety and cognitive impairment.
2. Significantly decreasing seizures for people with epilepsy.
3. Alleviating symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
Hemp Oil has been shown to be linked to a reduction in symptoms and effects of many diseases. It is also a potent antioxidant, meaning it is full of nutritional goodies that support a healthy functioning body. Below are some of the added benefits we found in our research:
- It protects your body from free radical damage.
- Has a balancing effect on the immune system.
It protects the gut.
- Reduces pain and inflammation when used topically.
- Supports Healthy Skin, Hair, and Nails.
- Supports heart health and promotes proper cardiovascular function.
- It has anti-depressant properties.
- It has anti-nausea properties.
- Helps Maintain a Hormonal Balance.
Finding Our Hemp Oil
All of these amazing benefits had us hooked! The next step was researching the right hemp oil for us. There are an array of brands out there to choose from and we wanted to work with the the one that aligned with our core values.
In our hunt for hemp we discovered Prime My Body, a brand that supports local communities and empowers its market base while producing one of the highest qualities of hemp oil we’ve found. We also discovered that the process of extraction used by Prime My Body has the highest absorption rate of any hemp based product on the market.
The Proof Is In The Oil
Liposomal delivery changes everything!
PMB recently conducted a 10-person, in-house study comparing Intra-Absorption (bioavailability) of liposomal & non-liposomal cannabidiol. Relative bioavailability is determined by comparing the plasma concentration time-curves (usually as area under the curve) after administration of two different formulations of the same compound.
The results of the study revealed that PMB liposomal nano-enhanced hemp oil was absorbed into the blood 5 times greater than the non-liposomal formulation tested. The graph below shows that PMB liposomal hemp oil far outperforms the non-liposomal formulation. In this study, our CBD liposome formulation was tested against our CBD in sunflower seed oil as a carrier.
The Science Behind PrimeMyBody’s Hemp Extract
The reason why the science of PMB hemp extract is proving to be so effective is based on the Human Endocannabinoid System. This elaborate network is part of our immune system and when it is activated by taking phyto cannabinoid diols, humans (and animals) have better ability to fight, resist, and assist in repairing the mind and body.
The endocannabinoid system also includes the “cannabinoid receptors” or CB receptors that they bind to. There are two major types of cannabinoid receptors in our bodies: CB1 and CB2. Activation of the extracellular portion of these receptors causes conformational change and initiates intracellular biochemical reactions. The vast number of cannabinoid receptors and their prevalence throughout the body suggests a multitude of promising therapeutic targets.
Using Prime My Body
We’ve been experimenting with the Prime My Body hemp oil at theSensationalists for a while now, and speaking from our experience alone we can say we are very satisfied with the results. We are seeing smoother glowing skin, reduction in anxiety, a stability in mood, a healthier and more vibrant mind and body, and a reduction in food cravings, to name some of the more obvious effects.
So with that being said, we’ve decided to partner up with Prime My Body and make their products available to you! Check out the links to our shop to try it for yourself and let us know the results you experience in the comment section below!
