How Cannabinoids work
The science behind why PrimeMyBody’s Hemp Extract is proving to be so effective is based on the Human Endocannabinoid System. This elaborate network is part of our immune system and when it is activated by taking phyto cannabinoid diols, humans (and animals) have better ability to fight, resist, and assist in repairing the mind and body.
The endocannabinoid system also includes the “cannabinoid receptors” or CB receptors that they bind to. There are two major types of cannabinoid receptors in our bodies: CB1 and CB2. Activation of the extracellular portion of these receptors causes conformational change and initiates intracellular biochemical reactions. The vast number of cannabinoid receptors and their prevalence throughout the body suggests a multitude of promising therapeutic targets.
CB1 receptors (pink areas)
The CB1 receptors are primarily located on nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord, but they are also found in some peripheral organs and tissues such as the spleen, white blood cells, endocrine gland and parts of the reproductive, gastrointestinal and urinary tracts.
In the brain, the CB1 receptors are abundant in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, hippocampus and dorsal primary afferent spinal cord regions, which is why cannabinoids influence functions such as memory processing, pain regulation and motor control. (1)
CB2 receptors (green areas)
The CB2 receptors are mainly found on white blood cells, in the tonsils and in the spleen. The immune cells also express CB1, although there are fewer of them than CB2. In the immune system, one important function of the cannabinoid receptors is the regulation of cytokine release. Studies suggest that CB2 modulate the pain sensation and could play a role in various diseases, from liver and kidney problems to neurodegenerative diseases. (1)
Repair and Maintenance Formula
PrimeMyBody utilizes a unique liposomal delivery system, which dramatically improves the bioavailability of the oil. Our product is a Dietary Supplement and contains industrial hemp extract derived from the whole hemp plant, which delivers healthful benefits, without the psychoactive or “high” effect associated with this type of botanical.

Side by Side Comparison
In an independent third party test against cannabinoid uptake, our hemp oil was absorbed in the blood in amounts three times as great at half the dose of the leading pharma brand. In fact, phospholipid therapy, using both injectable forms and oral forms, has a long and solid clinical history. Our liposomes bring the power of intravenous therapy into convenient oral delivery.
Unlike other liposomes on the market that use low grades of phospholipids, which breakdown and do not deliver compounds effectively, our high-phosphatidylcholine phospholipid mixes are smaller, more stable, and tightly distributed, single-layer spheres. Our vesicles are small enough to begin absorption as soon as they hit your mouth; it’s lightning fast!
Liposomes are microscopic single-to multi-layer spheres made of phospholipids — the basic building blocks of cell membranes. We engineer these phospholipids to encapsulate compounds, in order to bypass the digestive processes that normally degrades or limits compound absorption.
Most nutraceutical manufacturers typically use cheap shear methods resulting in large particles (200–600nm) that absorb poorly. Most of our particle systems fall in the same 50–100nm range that pharmaceutical companies target.
In addition to exceptional absorption rates, nano spheres like the ones produced by PrimeMyBody, have demonstrated the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly and enhance lymphatic circulation of nutrients.
The phospholipids that compose the liposome shell feed the cell membranes. This ensures the proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.
Up to 10xs MORE ABSORBING than other oils
Liposomal delivery brings the power of intravenous therapy into convenient oral delivery. Typical absorption of Phytocannabinoid Diol oil is poor, with only about 10% uptake in the GI tract. Liposomal encapsulation of compounds similar to Phytocannabinoid Diol have been shown to increase absorption five to ten fold. Our high-grade LIPOSOMAL Phytocannabinoid Diol outperforms other products thanks to smaller, more stable, single-layer spheres made from the highest-grade ingredients available.
