Cannabinoids as Vitamins
As the FDA continues to crack down on the labeling of CBD and other vital nutrients found in the cannabis plant, one thing they can't regulate is our natural connection to cannabinoids as essential vitamins to the body.
One thing Evolved Alchemy has found through our research and development along with specific case studies is that the nutrients found in cannabis/hemp do amazing things in relation to helping the body communicate with itself. When the body is supplied with cannabinoids that regulate the body's endocannabinoid system, it allows the body to counteract symptoms and regulate certain systems within the body naturally. These systems sometimes go haywire due to insufficient diet and nutrients... Thus, diet is the most important aspect of health!
The chemicals found in the Cannabis/Hemp plant do not cure anything, they simply contain the most potent source of vital nutrients called 'phytocannabinoids.' These are nutrients that interact with the body's endrogenous cannabinoid receptors found in the body's endocannabinoid system. Our bodies are only able to produce a small number of endocannabinoids. For the body to properly operate we need many organic acids that are not synthesized by the body itself.
Just like the cannabinoid like chemicals found in echinacea, turmeric, black pepper, cacao, helichrysum, passionflower, liverwort... Ingesting these plants give the body nutrients/vitamins that are not produced naturally within the body. This intrinsic connection to plants represents our evolutionary tie to the plants around us.
It is important to view herbal extracts as merely vital supplements to the diet. Many Americans these days have very limited diets in reference to getting all the vitamins we need for our bodies to operate efficiently at homeostasis. When we do not have these organic compounds in our diet, our bodies are not at equilibrium. This can cause a number of symptoms that can be hard to diagnose and treat with modern day pharmaceuticals. Sadly, most of the pharmaceutical industry disregards nutrition and diet which is the root cause of many ailments.
Keeping this in mind, Evolved Alchemy will be referring to the vital nutrients in Hemp as Vitamins. We will be listing the vitamin content instead of cannabinoid content to steer clear of the FDA and their regulation of labeling hemp cannabinoids.
