NZ HEMPRESS OIL – AN AMAZING NEW OIL GROWN AND MANUFACTURED IN CANTERBURY, NEW ZEALAND
What does hemp oil have to do with the most important system of physiology in the body: the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
The ECS was discovered in mid-1990 by researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam. It was found that the ECS is an integral part of our physiologies responsible for maintaining order and balance across all other systems of the body from the circulatory, digestive and reproductive, to the nervous system and hemp plays a crucial role…
ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM BENEFITS
Cannabinoid receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body. In fact, some researchers believe they may be the most prominent and abundant receptor in humans. They are located in the membranes of various cell types, and when they’re activated, they can “stimulate” cells to carry out dozens – if not hundreds or thousands – of different responses.
Under “healthy” conditions, the receptors are stimulated by the aforementioned endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG, which are produced naturally by the body.
If/when there is a deficiency in the production or functioning of these compounds (a condition known as endocannabinoid deficiency). The receptors are unable to be stimulated, and thus the cells and corresponding organs are not able to function properly or maintain homeostasis (balance) throughout the body.
This is where phyto-cannabinoids from the cannabis plant can come in.
Here is a great short video that explains a bit more about the Endocannabinoid system

In the event of a deficiency or malfunctioning of the human compounds anandamide or 2-AG, plant-based cannabinoids may be able to effectively “take their place” and stimulate the cannabinoid receptors on their own, thereby allowing cells to carry out their specific functions and return the body back to a relative state of homeostasis.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM “BRIDGE”
In addition to the seemingly “straightforward” physiologic effects that they have on our cellular receptors, Dr Sulak also suggests that cannabinoids can play a crucial role in much larger social and environmental scales.
For example, he believes natural cannabis compounds have the ability to alter our relationship with the environment around us, and allow us to adapt in a positive way to the myriad of changes (whether physical, emotional, etc) that we face on a day-to-day basis.
These changes, in combination with the ability of cannabinoids to promote the growth and development of new nerve cells, may improve our open-mindedness and allow us to transcend “limiting patterns of thought and behavior” – a crucial step in maintaining total body/mind health in a perpetually changing environment.
In this way, we begin to understand from a scientific perspective how cannabis in general – may truly be a molecular bridge between body and mind.

FULL-SPECTRUM HEMP OIL & STRESS RELIEF
Did you know that a quarter of New Zealand adults suffer from stress or anxiety at least once in their lifetime?
Stress is a part of our lives now more than ever. The hustle and bustle of daily activities, the responsibilities from work, family, and more all force the body to respond and adjust. In the end, many people experience stress.
HOW STRESS AFFECTS HEALTH
On one part, stress is a normal part of living. For example, vigorous activity triggers a stress response, but on the other part, stress can affect your health. Positive stress is called eustress, while negative stress is distress.
In this article, we will focus on the negative stress and how hemp oil works with stress responses in the body.
The truth is, there is only so much the body can take and without a solution to feelings of stress. You can feel like you are falling apart.

FULL-SPECTRUM HEMP OIL & STRESS REDUCTION
Full-spectrum hemp oil contains the components needed to activate the endocannabinoid system. It is a healthy and natural solution that gives little to no side effects in the long run. Full-spectrum hemp oil can also contribute to the way you respond to stressful environmental situations. This is a rare benefit that exposes the possibility of a permanent solution in dealing with stress.
The CBD component present in a full-spectrum hemp oil impacts stresses through multiple receptors in the body. Researchers have found it difficult to pinpoint the exact ways or pathways by which CBD relieves stress and anxiety. However, there are a few suspected processes that CBD actively influences for stress reduction.
Cortisol is the body’s main stress hormone. It regulates a wide range of processes in the body, including the immune system and metabolism. CBD can, in turn, regulate the amount of cortisol released by the body under stressful situations.
This process involves serotonin, which is sometimes referred to as the happy chemical. Serotonin contributes to well-being and happiness and can be found in the brain and blood platelets. Anti-anxiety drugs are known to bind to serotonin receptors to influence their actions and role in stress and anxiety. CBG another cannabinoid among many others also binds in the same way to this happy chemical. This leads to more effective results.
Stress is known to cause damage to the brain. This damage is usually repaired through neuroregeneration. Many cannabinoids promote this action, helping the brain to repair damage caused by stress in a faster way.
This is another great video that goes into a bit more detail about how the Endocannabinoid system works and the differences between the NZ Hempress Oil and the CBD oil you may have heard about…
