What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol — CBD — is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned”. CBD (as opposed to THC) may be an appealing treatment option for those seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and/or anti-spasm effects without causing troubling psychoactive effects like lethargy or dysphoria.*

Scientific and clinical studies underscore CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders.

CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and around the World. [via Wikipedia]

Sleep Disorders

Sleep

In the United States, approximately 70 million people suffer from insomnia, insufficient sleep or another sleep disorder. CBD has been mistakenly described as sedating. In modest doses, CBD is mildly alerting. Cannabidiol activates the same adenosine receptors as caffeine, a stimulant. But several patients with sleep issues report that ingesting a CBD-rich tincture or extract a few hours before bedtime has a balancing effect that facilitates a good night’s sleep.

Introducing Our Newest Formula: ‘CBD CALM’

A bottle of latest CBD formulation is free to the next 100 customers!

CBD ‘Calm’ contains a blend of essential oil rich in terpenes that are recognized to work together with cannabidiol (CBD) in the body. This formula contains, which we personally use daily, includes ingestable :

  • CBD (cannabidiol) Super-Critical CO2 extract, the most abundant cannabinoid found in ‘industrial’ hemp Cannabis sativa.
  • Hemp essential oil (also from Cannabis sativa), high in myrcene and β-caryophyllene terpenes.
  • Lavender essential oil (Lavendula angustifolia), high in the terpene linalool.
  • Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus paradisi), high in the terpene limonene.
  • Based in MCT Coconut oil with organic Rosemary antioxidant.

CBD is sensitive to oxidation, and we protect it with medium-chain-triglyceride (MCT) fractionated coconut oil and this Super-Critical CO2 extract of Rosemary.

The Synergy of CBD & Terpene-Rich Essential Oils…

In this previous post, we looked at the synergistic actions of terpenes and CBD. Scientific research has found that the primary constituents in Hemp, Lavender and Grapefruit essential oils are terpenes which, like CBD, act directly on our own endo-cannabinoid system.1

The essential oil of hemp is rich in the terpenes of myrcene and beta-caryophillene.

Hemp essential oil is rich in myrcene, noted to potentially relieve pain and ease aching muscles due to its anti-inflammatory actions. Hemp’s second most abundant constituent is caryophyllene, also noted for its anti-inflammatory properties. (Hemp essential oil is found in our CBD ‘Plus’ and ‘X3′ formulas as well).

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender: The quintessential calming essential oil is high in the terpene 'linalool'.

Lavender essential oil has been thoroughly researched for its many positive effects when ingested, including an anxiety and stress-relieving action. Linalool, Lavender essential oil’s primary constituent, is noted to be stress-relieving, and may synergize with CBD’s well-known anti-seizure effect.

Grapefruit essential oil’s primary constituent is limonene, a terpene that adds a citrusy-aroma to cannabis. It has been noted primarily as an immune-system booster and anti-microbial, also synergizing with CBD in this way.

Grapefruit essential oil source.

Grapefruit essential oil has high levels of the terpene limonene.

As with all our CBD formulas, the amount of CBD can be precisely measured: Each blend contains 1mg CBD (cannabidiol) per each 2 drops. There are a total of 83mg CBD in 5ml, 248mg in 15ml, and 496 in 30ml.

For more on the science of terpenes and CBD, see…Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects. Ethan B. Russo. Br J Pharmacol. 2011 Aug; 163(7): 1344–1364.doi: 10.1111/j.1476-5381.2011.01238.xPMCID: PMC3165946

'CBD Calm' is the latest addition to our synergistic cannabidiol collection!
