Why Bliss Molecules?

Anandamide & How Bliss Molecules Came to Be

There is a chemical already in our body that makes us feel bliss. You see, we actually make our own version of THC. What is this chemical? It’s called Anandamide, the bliss molecule. Anandamide’s full name is N-arachidonoylethanolamine… but let’s not get so complicated.

So here’s the deal on the human version of THC. Anandamide (AEA) is the human version of THC. Dubbed the “bliss molecule” by William Devane who discovered the compound while working with Raphael Mechoulam, the man who, along with his research team, discovered THC. The root Ananda- is Sanskrit for bliss. This molecule is a popular endocannabinoid that primarily affects two compounds in the body: CB1, mainly associated with the nervous system and CB2, the immune system.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is basically a superhighway in your body that sends messages about your major functions. You can’t walk after a tough workout? Your legs send messages to your brain recognizing discomfort and inflammation. In the same way that taking ibuprofen has chemicals that attach to the CB receptors to stop your ECS from recognizing that pain while your body promotes healing on its own, CBD can do the exact same thing without prescription or OTC medicines.

So what does Anadamide + CBD + Terpenes actually do?

Memory Support

Attention Span

Promoting Rest

Aches & Discomfort

Appetite Control

Immune Support

Emotional Support

All of these reasons are the reason why I created Bliss Molecules. I have broken down science to a line of small batch hand-crafted products that were created with your health and emotional wellness in mind. Nature, Naturally.

The Science Behind CBD + Terpenes

The Health Benefits of CBD and Terpenes

Since the discovery of cannabidiol (CBD), there has been more research on

cannabis, CBD oil and terpenes and less focus on THC. Terpenes are natural components of cannabis, essential oils, that give it its powerful aroma. Over 200 terpenes have been identified in cannabis, giving each plant a unique terpene profile.

Many studies have shown us that terpenes work in synergy with cannabinoids in what is known as the entourage effect. Terpenes moderate the body’s interaction with cannabinoids by interacting with the endocannabinoid receptors in the body to produce effects that vary from terpene to terpene.

For a long time, THC was considered the only psychoactive chemical in cannabis. In a paper released in 2011, neurologist Ethan Russo and his team explained how other cannabinoids (like CBD) and terpenes can moderate the effects of THC and other chemicals in the body as they interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) in an updated review, Russo also suggests that imbalances in the endocannabinoid system may play a role in conditions as far-reaching as, autism, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, motion sickness, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more.

The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana

Hemp and marijuana belong to the same family and both contain cannabidiol which has medicinal properties but cannabis is up to 100 times stronger than hemp. Hemp does not contain as many flavonoids, terpenes and useful medicinal properties as marijuana and its value lies in high nutrition.

Health Benefits of Hemp

Health Benefits of Consuming Hemp Seeds Include:

  • Many nutrients such as alpha-linolenic acid, linoleic acid, sulfur, phosphorus, iron, vitamin E, zinc, calcium and potassium.
  • Treating skin problems such as dermatitis and eczema.
  • Improved heart health, low blood pressure and improved blood flow.
  • High fiber content that supports digestive health.
  • Relief of symptoms of menopause and PMS.

Health Benefits of Cannabis

Marijuana contains 10-20% CBD (compared to 4% in hemp). The CBD:

  • Fights cancer and tumor cells.
  • Effectively reduces nausea and vomiting.
  • Relieves symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders.
  • Reduces inflammation and is an effective therapy for inflammatory disorders.
  • Suppresses seizure activity.
  • Relieves pain.
