Olive Oil & The Endocannabinoid System

Our unique hemp oil, here at KB Pure Essentials is blended with organic extra virgin olive oil grown locally in California; we infuse the whole hemp plant, organically grown, so it has a natural balance of compounds, terpenes, omegas and proteins.

It is only in the last couple of decades that scientist have begun to understand the Endocannabinoid System. We have cannabinoid receptors that could only be delivered from external sources. Cannabis is the source of the cannabidiol components.

It wasn’t until 1964 when a scientist Raphael Mechoulam was able to identify and isolate THC in the cannabis plant for the first time. The ability to isolate these cannabinoids for the first time was the breakthrough in discovering the Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid System is a biological system that can be found in all living things with vertebrae. It has become clear that our cannabinoid receptors play a larger role than we ever imagined.

Research has found different external resources to stimulate the Endocannabinoid System. Extra virgin olive oil has shown to upregulate CB-1receptors. Located primarily in the central and peripheral nervous system, activated CB-1 receptors change the way the body functions. CB-1 receptors affect areas of the brain playing a role in memory, mood, sleep, appetite and pain sensation. In a particular study, the demonstration of CB-1 gene expression has also shown that it may provide a new therapeutic avenue for treatment and/or prevention of colon cancer.

Mauro Maccarone, a scientist at the University of Teramo, Italy spoke with Project CBD  during a poster session at the 2014 International Cannabinoid Research Society conference. He explained the findings on olive oil and its aid against cancer.

We found that olive oil, in particular the phenolic components of olive oil, can reactivate CB-1 expression. By adding olive oil to an animal’s diet, we can restore a normal CB-1 receptor level that will protect cells against cancer,” Maccarone explained.

“This is very interesting and very promising because it suggests that the normal daily impact of the right amount of olive oil could be protective and could give you a better chance of a healthy life.”

Olive oil has numerous health benefits, including strong anti-inflammatoryeffects. Its anti-inflammatory effects are mediated by the antioxidants in olive oil. Studies have shown that extra virgin olive oil contains a compound, called oleocanthal. This compound prevents the production of pro-inflammatory COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes. This is the same way ibuprofen works. Several other studies with olive oil have shown benefits for heart health, bone loss and neurological diseases.

The essence of the beauty of olive groves are captured in every bottle of kb Pure Hemp CBD Oil. We combine the luxury of olive oil from La Panza Ranch, California and the ancient power of hemp by hand, to create a healing blend for your ultimate wellness.
