One of the fundamental benefits of PrimeMyBody’s Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil, as biochemist Dr. Christopher Shade puts it, “is to reduce that fire in the brain that causes anxiety, that causes fear, that causes the body to be stuck in fight or flight all the time.” Typically, that “fire in the brain” Dr. Shade refers to is low-level neuro-inflammation. Unlike other types of inflammation that may present as a swollen tenderness, he says, “it’s harder to determine or detect inflammation in the brain—which is often caused by neuro-immune cells working exhaustively to repair damage or chemical imbalances caused by toxins, allergies, autoimmune dysfunctions, or poor lifestyle and stress.”
To return the body to its natural state of homeostasis or stable health and functioning, the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) plays a significant role. Its responsibilities are widespread and include—to varying degrees—the repair, management and regulation of immune responses, pain management, appetite, inflammatory responses, energy, mood and memory. The compounds (specifically cannabidiol) within hemp oil are innately designed to interact with and therapeutically aid the functions of the Endocannabinoid System.
The effectiveness of compounds, nutrients, nutraceuticals, even medications is often determined by how well they are delivered, received, and absorbed by the body and bloodstream. To activate and engage the optimal functioning of the body’s Endocannabinoid System, Dr. Shade spent years refining delivery system chemistries that provide rapid uptake and unparalleled bioavailablity of compounds and nutrients into the body.
“We used, dominantly, liposomes which use phosphotidylcholine, making little spheres that can passively absorb and bypass the normal mechanisms of absorption. I was very successful at getting a very high uptake CBD particle. And then I started using it (myself) and I saw a vast need for this product.” says Dr. Shade.
Dr. Shade’s intention when formulating the delivery method of PMB’s Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil was to address a hole that’d been looming in functional and integrative medicine for nearly 30 years.
“And here was, finally, the solution to creating a balance in the autonomic nervous system. Turning down the fight or flight response, and bringing harmony back to the brain.”
