Supercritical Extraction, is used for Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, an advanced technology using CO2 to gently extract an ingredient from its natural source without applying excessive heat and/or chemical solvents.
Hemp extract providing phytocannabinoids, works by stimulating the endocannabinoid system in the human body. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered in 1992 by Israeli scientist Raphael Mechoulam and NIMH researchers Andrew Devane and Dr. Lumir Hanus. The ECS is a central regulatory system consisting of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous (“self made,” i.e., made in our own bodies) cannabinoid compounds and enzymes. The ECS has been implicated in a wide range of physiological functions. As reported in the scholarly journal Pharmacological Reviews, “modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and pathological conditions, ranging from mood and anxiety disorders, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity/metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis, to name just a few.”
Hemp extract medicines are gaining popularity for the relief of painful conditions like neuropathy pain. Hemp extract has also been tried by patients for a wide variety of psychological complaints including anxiety and depression, in particular, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.
