Dr. Milo Topical Pain Relief Lotion works with herbal plant ingredients along with Cannabinoids found in Full Spectrum Cannabis Hemp plant that is then Nano-Emulsified to target the Endocannabinoid System to create homeostasis in the body.
Endo (endogenous) means that it is produced naturally inside your body … and cannabinoid refers to compounds found in Hemp and Cannabis. So, endocannabinoid simply means cannabis like substances that naturally occur in our bodies. That’s right… We actually produce our very own cannabinoids without ingesting any substances!
Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified, they are CB1 (1990) and CB2 (1993). CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain and are influenced by anandamide, a neurotransmitter responsible for pleasure, motivation, and hunger. This same neurotransmitter is released during exercise and causes “runner’s high.” CBD does not directly bind to CB1 receptors; (THC does that), but indirectly inhibits them. This is why CBD can be used to reduce how high you feel and has been proven to reduce psychological and mental stressors in the brain.
The unbalanced functioning of CB2 receptors have been linked to virtually every type of human disease from cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, neurodegenerative, autoimmune, skin, bone, cancer, and even pain-related disorders. As cannabinoids enter your bloodstream, they act on CB2 receptors throughout your body to promote homeostasis, or stable equilibrium, of the endocannabinoid system.
“Full Spectrum” means that the WHOLE PLANT is used, and nothing is isolated. In our full spectrum NANO products, cannabis hemp plants are produced to retain all the elements of the plant. The Terpenes, Cannabinoids, flavonoids, all fatty acids, plant sterols, natural vitamin E, and chlorophyll; everything naturally occurring in the hemp flower. Having the whole plant processed together creates an interactive synergy- meaning we’re letting nature do its thing. This increases our products therapeutic power and allows it to work at its highest state, unprocessed.
*A WORD ON THC: Our product contains trace amounts of THC. This is because THC naturally occurs in the Hemp plant. Also remember our hemp is unprocessed, so we still get about 0.3% THC. But, this amount will not get you high (if that’s what you’re looking for.) Most often, If a product advertises as full-spectrum remember that there is no such thing as THC full-spectrum products – instead these are generally isolates.
**ISOLATE: Isolate CBD is stripped-down cannabinol containing no other residual cannabinoids, 0%THC and no other naturally occurring plant compounds. It’s usually a lot less expensive because it’s low quality and tends to make a less expensive product.
