Why CBD oil?
CBD used topically is thought to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and promote wellness through a sense of calm and balance within. JOMO’s hemp-derived CBD extract is 100% natural and plant-based, gently refined to contain no THC, meaning you can’t get high. CBD’s natural benefits are boosted by our holistically inspired essential oil blend, which contains terpenes that are found naturally in the cannabis plant to increase the effects and bioavailability of the “miracle molecule” CBD, that boosts our body’s own natural endocannabinoid system, which regulates our nervous system and immunity.
CBD is useful in treating a wide range of health conditions, thanks in large part to those powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
The relaxing effects of CBD can also soothe symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders.
Additional ingredients found in Jomo such as Lavender, Vitamin E, Jojoba oil and Ylang Ylang can enhance the relaxation experience, boosting a general sense of wellbeing, restoring balance.
What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) was discovered by scientists in 1940 and is a non-hallucinogenic extract from the cannabis plant. Due to the illegalities of the psychoactive and hallucinogenic elements of the plant, it has been a long struggle to get to a point to test the potential medicinal properties of CBD and scientific studies are still in their infancy.
How does CBD work with our body?
The human body produces its own natural cannabis-like molecules within a cell signalling system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system regulates our body functions when we need it and when the body detects an imbalance with a process regulated by the ECS, it produces cannabinoids that interact with our receptors. This generates a chemical process that targets and resolves the imbalance.
Our ECS consists of two receptors –
- CB1 – mostly found in the brain, central nervous system & other body parts
- CB2 – found on cells associated with our immune system
Our body is naturally receptive to endocannabinoids such as CBD, which are absorbed throughout the body via specialised receptors. By applying topically to pressure points where the blood vessels are closer to the surface of the skin allows the CBD to be absorbed more easily bypassing the digestive system.
The ECS helps our body control its internal environment including areas such as chronic pain, inflammation and other immune system responses, our mood, learning and memory, motor control, sleep, cardiovascular system function, muscle formation, stress, reproductive system function and skin and nerve function. As well as others.
For example, if an outside force, such as pain from an injury or a fever, throws off your body’s homeostasis, your ECS kicks in to help your body return to its ideal operation.
CBD from the cannabis plant, is a powerful plant molecule and can stimulates human ECS receptors and help balance interconnected systems of the body. Although we are still in the early stages of testing, experience, and testimonials from those who use CBD has helped has driven the awareness and growth of the CBD industry. As the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire and pharmaceutical companies would rather put the fire out than engage with a possible natural to over-the-counter medicine as we know it.
Where is our CBD from?
Our CBD is extracted from “industrial hemp” that is grown in California US. This is cultivated from seeds that contain less than 0.2% THC as per regulations. Instead of THC these plants are grown and nurtured so that they contain high levels of CBD. Oils are extracted under Federal Government Approval.
