The Endocannabinoid system


Let’s understand what our Endocannabinoid system is, why Endocannabinoids and their receptors are important and how BCP hemp oil binds with CB2 receptors.


What is the Endocannabinoid system?


The endogenous cannabinoid (or endocannabinoid) system is a biological system of receptors, proteins and neurotransmitters within one’s body.

Regulating various physiological and cognitive processes related to appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory.

The Endocannabinoid system is critical for balancing and regulating one’s bodily functions to achieve a desired state of homeostasis.

What are Cannabinoid Receptors?


When comparing the genetics of cannabinoid receptors in different species, scientists estimate the endocannabinoid system evolved in primitive animals over 600 million years ago.

 Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body, embedded in cell membranes.

 When stimulated, our receptors interact with our immune system, nervous system and organs to achieve a state of balanced equilibrium.

Researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors:


  • CB1: Brain and Nervous System

 CB2: Endocrine and Immune System


The CB1 receptors are found in the nervous system, glands, the brain and connective tissues.

The CB2 receptors are found all over the body.  Their goal is to improve one’s immunity response, reduce inflammation and regulate pain.

What are Endocannabinoids?


Endocannabinoids are the substances our bodies naturally make to stimulate the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

The two most well-known endocannabinoid molecules are Anandamide and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG).

Anandamide binds with the CB1 receptors and aptly nicknamed “bliss molecule” because it increases one’s mood.

2-AG binds with one’s CB2 receptors.  Curiously, a large concentration of CB2 receptors are found in the spleen further supporting beliefs of 2-AG’s ability to suppress the immune response and help mediate inflammation.


What is BCP hemp oil?


Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP) hemp oil is an isolated terpene, extracted from the hemp plant offering similar health benefits to traditional cannabis oil without the psychoactive effects inherent with products containing THC. 


How does BCP oil or CBD oil interact with your cannabinoid receptors?


BCP oil works directly with the CB2 receptors in the body and is the only known terpene with this binding capability.  When working with this receptor, BCP oil helps proper immune function, good inflammatory response and is soothing and relaxing to the tissues.

CBD oil is known to help with neurological issues and pain.  However, CBD oil works indirectly with one’s CB2 receptors.


Will BCP hemp oil work for you?

When taking any form of medication, many unseen variables determine whether you’ll experience relief for your specific condition.  Anyone with a chronic condition can attest, it can take months before doctors prescribe patients with medicine that is effective for the patient.

From that perspective, let us consider whether a specific terpene isolate will deliver the result one desires.  For those new to BCP hemp oil, it’s easy to get excited and expect all terpenes are a solution to one’s every mental and physical ailment or condition.  For us rational ones, we realise a ‘miracle cure’ isn’t probable and unlikely to ever exist.

Before buying BCP oil or any other terpene isolate consider the following:

  • Ensure your desired result is a listed potential benefit of your chosen BCP oil or terpene isolate.

If it is not, you may experience relief but unlikely.

Are you currently taking any medication that is counteracting the benefits of the terpene isolate you are using?

If not obtaining the level of relief you are after, do a quick Google search on the medication you are taking.  Double check the side effects of your medication doesn’t counteract the benefits of the terpene isolate.

If this is the case, please do not stop taking your prescribed medication without medical professional guidance.

 Remember everyone is different. The only way to find out if a terpene isolate works specifically for you is to try it for yourself.

Keep an open mind and see how you go.  Someone’s positive or negative feedback isn’t solid proof that a remedy will work the same way for you.
