THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

Hemp has been an important plant throughout major civilisations including the ancient Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Assyrians, Indians, Romans and Persians. Hemp was revered as a highly valuable source of healing and food.

Scientific studies have shown that human beings have an ECS, a group of endogenous receptors that are located in the mammalian brain and throughout the CNS, in our connective tissue, our organs, our immune cells and our glands. Once these receptors are activated they enable two-way communication between the systems of the body. This is a feat that science had previously claimed was not possible. The ECS pays a role in a number of physiological processes that include pain sensation, appetite, mood, and memory, as well as mediating the psychoactive side effects of cannabis.

This system is called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

“Endocannabinoid system” translates as the “Cannabinoid system inside the body, and it could be the most fundamental psychological system in establishing and maintaining general health. When we supply the ECS with the nutrients it was designed to receive, important communications can take place between the body’s control centres and every other system.

Because hemp and cannabis have not been legalised in many parts of the world for the last 80 years most humans on the earth today have existed without feeding themselves these raw materials.

You might imagine it like a large orchestra being made to play blind-folded. They can’t see the conductor and they can’t read the music. Sometimes they get it right but most of the time it’s a mess. Bringing the body back into harmony could be as simple as replacing this lost nutrition.

You Can Trust Elixinol

Following the launch of his first product, the ‘9bar’ snack bar, which remains one of the world’s best selling hemp products, Paul Benhaim has developed and endorsed private sector and government policies and international strategies to further the industrial hemp industry. His passion to cultivate the highest quality products for the mass market drives ensures that Elixinol continues to utilise the best raw materials from organic hemp crops. Paul supports other industries and his second and third grade crops are all put to good use.

Paul collaborates with in-house, contracted and third party suppliers in his quest for the best quality. His collaborators include seed suppliers and seed breeders, harvesters, growers, cleaners, primary processors, laboratories and manufacturers to ensure that Elixinol always has access to exclusive variety crops.

4000 Year Old Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid system has been part of humans for at least 4000 years, and during that time frame no one has ever died after consuming hemp.

This is due to the fact that cannabinoid receptors are not found on the brain stem. The brain stem is the body’s control centre for breathing an the heart. It is not possible for cannabinoids to overwhelm both systems and cause a shut down.
