What is Cannabidiol and what does it stand for? Cannabidiol is a chemical compound found in the Cannabis plant. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects. Instead, it is part of the Cannabis plant that holds the highest medicinal value. Research has found it to be effective for treating inflammation, pain, anxiety and spasms associated with multiple sclerosis. CBD works with the CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system (see below) to have a positive effect on our immune system and overall cell function.
Is Cannabidiol from Industrial Hemp the same thing as medical Marijuana? No. Industrial hemp used in the Struthio products does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Industrial hemp is essentially a cousin of marijuana, and for most people, a more practical source of cannabinoids.
Is Cannabidiol derived from Industrial Hemp legal in the United States? Yes, Cannabidiol from hemp is legal in most states, US Farm Bill 2018 declassified hemp as a schedule one product. One does not require a permit or recommendation from your doctor to buy Pure Hemp Extract based products, such as Struthio.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
What is the endocannabinoid system? The endocannabinoid system refers to the internal chemical processes which mediate homeostasis (maintenance of a stable balance) within the body. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. The goal of the cannabinoid system is always the same, which is the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment or homeostasis.
Within the body, the endogenous cannabinoid substances are lipid (fat-soluble) messengers which communicate between various cells in the body and adjusting depending upon various internal and external environmental influences.
The endocannabinoid messengers affect bodily processes such as appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. Hemp is a phytocannabinoid – a plant based cannabinoid.
How does the human cannabinoid system interact with Pure Hemp Extract from Industrial Hemp? The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of Cannabinoid receptors found in our brains and throughout the central and peripheral nervous system. There are two types of endocannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2.
The CB1 receptors are found in the brain, nervous system they play a role in regulating memory, mood, sleep appetite and pain sensation. CB2 receptors are found in “immune cells” and are responsible for CBDs anti-inflammatory effects.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM CONTINUED
What Are Cannabinoid receptors? Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body, embedded in cell membranes, and are believed to be more numerous than any other receptor system. Scientists have identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB1, predominantly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs; and CB2, predominantly found in the immune system and its associated structures.
Many tissues contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors, each linked to a different action. All mammals share in that the endocannabinoid system as an essential part of life and adaptation to environmental changes. By comparing the genetics of cannabinoid receptors in different species, scientists estimate that the endocannabinoid system evolved in primitive animals over 600 million years ago. Endocannabinoids are the substances our bodies naturally make to stimulate these receptors.

It is usually more effective than conventional medications such as cortisone at reducing inflammation and related pain.
The fatty acids in Struthio Oil (Omega 3 and Omega 6) increase the production of hormone-like substances called eicosanoids in our bodies to help heal skin and reduce inflammation. As it penetrates thru all layers of skin, the fatty acids cause an anti-inflammatory effect. It actually reaches deeply into the joints or muscles to relieve pain associated with this inflammation.
