Cannabis sativa is one of the most powerful, and misunderstood, plants in the world.
Do you know the difference between Cannabis, Hemp, and Marijuana?
Dr. Sebi’s Full-Spectrum Products deliver the profound healing effects of Cannabis, without the “high” you get from Marijuana.
Hemp-based CBD Products support the body to rest, relax, and rejuvenate at a cellular level.
Physicians in the US could legally prescribe Cannabis until 1942. Lobbying from the textile, oil, and pharmaceutical industries re-classified this powerful plant from ‘master medicine, to ‘dangerous narcotic - ignoring five thousand years’ of safe and effective use.
Around 70% of all new medicines are derived from wild plants and trees. Pharmaceutical companies have attempted to duplicate Cannabis’s healing properties by creating synthetic alternatives. But manmade medicines lack the precision and complexity of the original, natural design.
Despite rapidly advancing biotechnology, Mother Nature still produces the best medicines with biological structures designed to fit our bodies exactly. Pharmaceutical companies are still trying to improve on nature’s design with products that hijack our natural biological desire for plants.
Cannabis & Cannabinoids
Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that are not unique to the Cannabis plant. Humans and animals produce endocannabinoids. Cannabis (and a few other less well-known plants) produces phytocannabinoids. Pharmaceutical companies are making synthetic cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids interact with the receptors of your body’s endocannabinoid system – regulating sleep, digestion, mood, and metabolism. The specific receptor, and how it’s stimulated, determines the impact of each cannabinoid.
THC vs. CBD
The lobbying that demonized the Cannabis plant did not distinguish between two main sub-species, which produce very different cannabinoids. Hemp has no psychoactive effects - it simply cannot get you high.
- Hemp: Grown for medicinal use, fabrics, bio-plastics, and biofuels: rich in Cannabidiol (CBD).
- Marijuana: Smoked or eaten to obtain psychoactive effects: rich in Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD and THC are just two of the hundreds of natural cannabinoids, but they are the most well-known.
- THC (from Marijuana) primarily ACTIVATES receptors – creating the euphoria or ‘high.’
- CBD (from Hemp) primarily DEACTIVATES receptors – creating relaxation and boosting mood.
It’s not possible to get intoxicated from Hemp, and its main cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD). However, hemp does offer a huge range of healing effects that are related to helping the body relax, supporting the immune system, promoting good digestion, and even protecting the heart and cardiovascular system.
Many of our modern ‘diseases’ are related to our stressful lives, and we’ve forgotten how to relax, unwind, and dedicate the time and space for our bodies to heal. Hemp-derived CBD supports the body to immunologically kick-start the repair processes that keep us healthy.
Anxiety and depression are also linked to our inability to chill out (both mentally, and physically). CBD provides a natural path to reset the mind, mood, body, and libido. With Hemp, Mother Nature has provided the perfect plant to help us through difficult times, without getting us high.
By synergizing naturally extracted CBD with whole-plant matter and hemp seed oil, Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food provides a uniquely potent, and completely natural, range of alkaline Hemp-derived CBD products. The healing phytocannabinoids are supported by distinct flavonoids and terpenes that occur naturally in our Hemp, grown in a pristine natural environment.
The full-spectrum drops, capsules, and soft gels take advantage of the natural healing power of the Cannabis plant, enhanced by the ‘entourage effect’ (supporting Dr. Sebi’s principle of using the whole plant for maximum impact). Hemp is changing the way society views herbs. Right now we need some help learning to kick back, relax, and rejuvenate our cells. Fortunately, the immense healing potential of Hemp is here to help.
