Hemp is a plant of the variety cannabis sativa. In the past few years hemp has become one of the most buzzed-about topics in the natural wellness space because certain compounds from this plant may support a sense of peace and well-being in humans. Don’t worry, it’s not intoxicating, so you can add hemp extracts to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.
Some people take hemp because they need support for specific reasons while others want to enhance their overall well-being. To understand the benefits of hemp, you need to understand what it does in the body. The simplest benefit of taking hemp-derived extracts is that they can help manage ordinary, everyday stress. That’s something we all need. Whether you’re an office worker, a manual laborer, a parent, a teacher, an athlete, a weekend warrior, or some combination of the above, life can become stressful! Studies indicate that certain hemp compounds can not only help you feel more balanced, but can support your body on its journey to optimal health. In short, hemp compounds are a plant-based way to support your well-being.
Hemp is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are abundant in hemp and work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Studies show the ECS is involved in a lot of important jobs. These jobs include regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule and more. Basically, the ECS helps keep your body in homeostasis.,
Homeostasis is a biological balance in your body’s natural rhythms. Sometimes it’s described as equilibrium in your system. Homeostasis has a big impact on your overall well-being. New research is always emerging exploring the link between homeostasis, and physical, mental, or even emotional health. People use hemp products because they want to support their ECS, and all the work it does to keep your body in homeostasis. Your body actually makes its own cannabinoids. These are called endocannabinoids. If you’ve ever experienced a runner’s high, or the thrill of singing along to your favorite song, you’ve felt the work of endocannabinoids. When plants make this type of compound, they’re called phytocannabinoids. There are over a hundred types of phytocannabinoids found in hemp plants, and taking hemp extracts in different forms is an easy way to support your body’s own production of endocannabinoids.
The short answer to the question ‘will hemp get me high?’ is no. Hemp is non-intoxicating and will not get you high.
