The Science Behind GetWell Hemp Full Spectrum Extracts

It’s no secret that hemp extracts provide a huge number of varying benefits. A hemp extract can positively affect numerous systems in both the body and brain, while causing a minimal number of side effects. Hemp extracts have been positively linked to helping with at least 40 medical issues - and those are just the ones that have been studied and confirmed.

How does something this powerful manage to work without causing some detrimental effects or addiction? Let’s take a look.

How GetWell Hemp affect the cannabinoid receptors

Marijuana is known for its potent effects on the brain and body. It has been well-studied for many years, and science has deduced the mechanisms behind many of its effects. A large portion of these effects are caused by direct stimulation of the cannabinoid (CB) receptors CB1 and CB2.

Hemp extracts, however, contain different compounds - these ones indirectly affect the CB1 and CB2 receptors, instead of directly triggering them like the main compounds in marijuana.

Cannabinoid receptors are located all over the body, and thus impact a huge number of the systems that we use for our everyday functions. These can include pain, appetite, perception and sensory response, sleepiness, energy, memory and general cognition. These receptors are made to respond to both endocannabinoid (those produced by our body) and the cannabinoids present in nature.

How hemp extracts are used for the treatment of different conditions, while relying on these receptors, varies. The biological results from stimulation of the cannabinoid receptors depend on how they are stimulated and to what degree, which is why different doses of hemp extract can have different effects. Let’s take a look at some of the most significant things that hemp extracts can help you with.

GetWell Hemp extracts and their use for mental problems

Hemp extracts have been studied for their usage in a large number of mental conditions, including depression, ADHD, addiction, and anxiety. While the mechanisms vary between different conditions and some are not fully understood, there is a huge number of things that hemp extracts can help with.

Many of these symptoms are more mental in nature than physical, though the two types of conditions tend to overlap fairly frequently. While HempDirect extract isn’t psychoactive, it can still reduce a lot of symptoms of mental conditions. For the following, conditions, studies have been done that indicate a positive link between taking these extracts and a reduction in symptoms.

GetWell Hemp extracts can alleviate depression

Despite the compounds in hemp extracts not being distinctly psychoactive, they can affect your mood and mental health. Depression is caused by an imbalance of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, serotonin and GABA. Hemp extracts can have an effect in the brain by indirectly affecting certain receptors. This effect is mostly seen by the Hemp extract helping the brain to restore a natural, healthy balance of neurotransmitters.

Additionally, depression can sometimes be caused by a certain type of inflammation known as neuroinflammation. This affects the brain and can interfere with communication between your brain cells (neurons.) Hemp extracts are powerful anti-inflammatory agents and can help to reduce this inflammation and any related symptoms.

GetWell Hemp extracts can aid with addiction - even to cannabis

That may seem slightly contradictory, but hemp extracts can help with a number of addictions.

  • Opioid addictions are often sparked by a patient’s legitimate need for pain medication. 15,000 people died in the US from prescription opioids alone - not including street drugs like heroin, which are often used as a form of self medication. Hemp extracts can reduce a number of symptoms that lead people into using opioids, legally or illegally: depression, anxiety, pain, low motivation, Hemp extracts have been shown to reduce cue-related relapses.
  • Hemp extracts can help eliminate nicotine cravings and reduce smoking so it’s easier to give up. If a nicotine vaporizer is replaced by a hemp extract vaporizer, or a person simply uses a hemp extract vaporizer, they are up to 40% less likely to smoke cigarettes. Cravings were also reduced.
  • Hemp extracts can eliminate cannabis addictions! This is because hemp extracts contain no THC, which is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis that induces psychoactive effect. Users who continually take hemp extracts show a reduction in both cravings and side effects from their use of cannabis.

GetWell Hemp extracts can help people with PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a condition that occurs in people who have suffered serious traumatic situation. It can cause flashbacks, anxiety, nightmares, and panic attacks, among other things. Glucocorticoids are stress hormones and they’re affected by cannabinoids like those included in hemp extracts.

This study in particular looked at people who developed PTSD as a result of the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. These patients displayed a lower level of endocannabinoids present in the body.

GetWell Hemp extracts can help with insomnia

Insomnia can be caused by a number of things, and traditionally, cannabis is touted for its ability to promote long-lasting, quality sleep. However, traditional insomnia medications don’t provide much help if the condition is caused by pain or extreme anxiety, unless the medications are very powerful. In this case, these medicines often have unwanted side effects.

If you don’t want to take strong medication to help with your insomnia, don’t worry. Hemp extracts have been shown to promote somnolence even in people whose insomnia is caused by pain conditions of all kinds and anxiety.

GetWell Hemp extracts help with easing symptoms of ADHD

At least one study has linked hemp extracts with improved symptoms from people suffering with ADHD. ADHD causes a number of symptoms in both children and adults, such as difficulty focusing, fidgeting, impulsiveness, and sometimes even cognitive deficits. Hemp extracts have been shown to improve a person’s focus and attention span and reduce the hyperactivity and constant movement that people from ADHD often experience.

GetWell Hemp extracts can help with Alzheimer’s

This might seem contradictory as well, since Alzheimer’s is often known as a condition that causes severe memory loss - something that cannabis is known for.

There are two particular digestive conditions that hemp extracts are known for helping. Crohn's disease, a condition that causes the wall of the intestine to be chronically inflamed, causes sufferers pain, bloating, and diarrhea. Hemp extracts are known to be potent anti-inflammatory agents, and can reduce symptoms of Crohn's disease

IBS, irritable bowel syndrome, exhibits similar symptoms that Crohn’s disease can cause since there is a lesser degree of inflammation involved. It can make it difficult to digest food, and cause erratic bowel movements that can affect a routine schedule. Since IBS can be caused by a deficiency of endocannabinoids, It’s possible that supplementing with hemp extracts can eliminate these symptoms by balancing the cannabinoid system

GetWell Hemp extracts can ease symptoms of diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune disorder that occurs when the pancreas has trouble producing enough insulin to regulate your blood sugar. The pancreas displays signs of inflammation during this. Diabete can emerge if somebody has a hyperactive immune system, which takes focus away from some necessary functions like producing insulin.

Hemp extracts are known for being fantastic modulators of the immune system. It has been shown that their ability to reduce inflammation-causing compounds in the body helps the immune system, while they also promote the synthesis of anti-inflammatory compounds used by our bodies.

Type 2 diabetes, which can emerge if type 1 diabetes is not regulated, is when the body becomes tolerant to insulin and doesn’t respond to the insulin that it creates. Cannabinoids help to improve the processing of sugars and improves metabolization. Hemp extracts are shown to lower the blood plasma levels of glucose, which takes some of the stress off your pancreas and allows your body to desensitise itself from insulin.

Hemp oil helps with nausea

This nausea could be from any number of causes. Chronic nausea that would require other medication, nausea caused by chemotherapy or other related procedures, or even nausea as a side effect of certain medications. Hemp extracts are well-known for their ability to help eliminate nausea.

Hemp extracts are shown to improve the effect of antiemetics, requiring patients to need lower doses to find relief from their nausea, similar to the type of deficiency that can be indicated in irritable bowel syndrome.

GetWell Hemp extracts can assist epileptics

Epilepsy is another condition that’s also very difficult to treat without powerful medication. Hemp extracts have proven themselves to be good medicines for controlling the frequency of seizures and lowering the intensity of seizures that do occur. It’s also been shown to improve the quality of sleep in people with epilepsy.

Hemp oil is proven to prevent many types of cancer

One of the most impressive things that cannabinoids can do is prevent the creation and growth of cancer cells. Apoptosis is the name given to a process that causes cellular death, and cannabinoids like those found in hemp extracts can cause apoptosis to occur. This may seem like a bad thing, because we need our cells to occur, but apoptosis typically only affects cells that are at risk due to some information found in the genetic code.

Apoptosis is useful for preventing the growth of tumours, and its induction can actually reduce the size of tumours. Another process that is affected by hemp oil is autophagy, which helps cells to reuse and discard certain parts. There are many studies to link these cannabinoids to reduction or prevention of cancer.
