MINAMI CBD and Omega-3: What You Need to Know

Minami CBD combines CBD extract with essential omega-3

MINAMI® CBD and Omega-3 is a premium product and the first of its kind, combining the popular hemp-derived substance CBD with the Omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA from fish oil.



What is CBD?


CBD (Cannabidiol) was first discovered in the 1940s and is a type of phytocannabinoid found in hemp (Cannabis sativa).


There are over 100 phytocannabinoids in hemp, with these naturally occurring oils found within the resin that coats the leaves and flowers of the plant. They are structurally very similar to and mimic the action of endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) that are naturally produced by the body.


CBD oil is derived from hemp plants


Unlike the phytocannabinoid THC which is found in high concentrations in Marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive, making it safe and legal to use as a food supplement.


What are endocannabinoids?


Endocannabinoids are types of neurotransmitters that are required for proper cell signalling and make up part of our endocannabinoid system.


The endocannabinoid system plays a key role in helping to balance a number of processes around the body, including:


  • Immune system function
  • Pain receptors
  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Sleep cycle
  • Learning and memory


It’s believed that Omega-3 essential fatty acids are involved in the production of endocannabinoids, while CBD is thought to interact with the endocannabinoid system, enabling endocannabinoids themselves to have longer-lasting results.


There are two particularly important endocannabinoids, 2‐arachidonylglycerol (2‐AG) and Anandamide (AEA), which have actions on the two main cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2.


Phytocannabinoids act in a similar way to many cannabinoids and may activate the same receptors i.e. CB1 and CB2.


If the body is not producing enough endocannabinoids, clinical endocannabinoid deficiency can occur, which could lead to conditions such as fibromyalgia, pain, anorexia, depression, IBS, migraines, multiple sclerosis, neuropathy, motion sickness and autism.


Why take Omega-3 with CBD?


Firstly, essential fatty acids are required for the production of endocannabinoids. Evidence suggests that once cells have built up a sufficient amount of Omega-3 and Omega-6, endocannabinoids are made quickly, especially in situations such as stress and during exercise.


Omega-3 specifically is also very important to the structure of cell membranes and may act as an anchor for cannabinoid receptors. As a result, a deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids may impair the integrity of cannabinoid receptors, negatively changing signalling pathways in the brain.


As the modern diet typically provides an excess of Omega-6 fatty acids, this product only provides Omega-3 fatty acids at a high concentration. The fish oil is also useful in this product, as CBD is a fat-soluble compound, meaning that it needs to be taken with fats to become available to the body. This combination of the two, therefore, aids the absorption process.


Taking CBD with Omega-3 has its advantages over using Omega-3 alone, as it acts much more quickly in the body, so it doesn’t take as long to see its full effects. MINAMI® CBD and Omega-3, therefore, gives you fast results and helps you to top up your Omega-3 fats in the process.


Omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are hard to obtain from the diet, have multiple proven health benefits, including maintaining a healthy brain and heart.

Finally, MINAMI® CBD and Omega-3 provides all the goodness of hemp oil, unlike some other CBD products that only contain the isolate. Containing other phytocannabinoids, such as CBDa, means that the product is considered full-spectrum, which appears to work better than just CBD taken on its own.
