  • Inside of the human body, you have the Endocannabinoid system with many receptors spread around. These are activated by Endocannabinoids (Cannabinoids produced naturally by the human body) as well as plant Cannabinoids (As found in Hemp or Cannabis). Hemp Extracts play a role in the mediation of Body temperature, pain perception, and inflammation. 2

  • There are over 80 different Cannabinoids found in the cannabis genus of plants. 2

  • In your Endocannabinoid system, you have CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are usually activated by THC. Hemp Extract Compounds were once thought to inhibit an enzyme (FAAH) that activates the CB1 receptor, minimizing the activation of CB1 by THC but it has been discovered that the compound engages proteins that bind anandamide to FAAH, not to FAAH itself. 2

  • There are many products including tinctures, sprays, skin balm, lotions, bath bombs, and even food items. People have extracted their own using coconut oil, and other cooking oils. 2

  • HEMP was recently classified as medicine by the National Health Service in the United States, meaning it’s currently legal in all 50 states. However, while Hemp Extracts is no different when extracted from Hemp vs. extracted from Cannabis, but legally speaking this is not true. Headway Biosciences uses Hemp extracted Hemp Oils to make sure our product is clean and legal. 2

  • Hemp extract is a dietary supplement and an excellent source of nutrients that can be safely consumed as part of a daily diet. Unlike “cannabis oil” (generally referring to high THC oil), hemp extract rich in natural cannabinoids, is legal, and is not psychoactive, meaning that it does not cause one to “get high”. Responsible for this “getting high” effect is THC, a compound that is naturally found in the cannabis plant. We use Industrial hemp which is categorized as having less than .3% THC.
