There is also some evidence that phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil helps with chronic pain, spasticity, nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, weight loss in HIV infection, and sleep disorders, such as insomnia and PTSD. Several clinical studies have shown that 25 mg of phytocannabinoids daily can help to ease you into a deep and restful sleep.
The phytocannabinoids and terpenes in the cannabis Sativa plant work with your body’s own natural endocannabinoid system to maintain homeostasis in all its different parts. This system is responsible for keeping your mood stable, managing hunger and satiety, the regulation of your immune function, bone and muscle growth and healing, memory, concentration and learning. Stress, aging and poor diet can interfere with the normal production of endocannabinoids, so using a hemp oil with phytocannabinoid rich phytocannabinoids can support and maintain it’s healthy functioning.
When looking for a phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil, it’s important to check the COA (Certificate of Analysis) from a third-party lab. The COA will provide you with the cannabinoid profile, potency, and contaminant tests of the product.
