What is FULL spectrum hemp? how is FULL spectrum hemp extract used? and do you offer FULL spectrum products?


Full spectrum hemp refers to when the pure oil extracted from hemp contains all the same cannabinoids and compounds found in the original hemp plant. Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a phytocannabinoid found naturally in industrial hemp. In the last several years we've seen a renewed interest in CBD due to the discovery of its antioxidative effects. Full spectrum hemp extracts can be used directly just like any other nutritional supplement. However, there have been great advances in the development of cannabidiol oil over the years. This has led to the emergence of a wide range of CBD oil products such as; tinctures, capsules, balms, salves etc. Concentrated CBD oil can also be infused into the body and into skin care products, which mean it can be used topically. Our full spectrum hemp products are derived from high phytocannabinoids, low THC organic industrial hemp and are non-psychoactive. We use a natural extraction method, which is 100% gentle on the trichomes and cannabinoids, which preserve the natural essence of the plant. We NEVER utilize fossil fuels in the process such as propane, butane or CO2 in our extraction process. As a result, we isolate and extract CBD to at least 99% of purity as well as the full spectrum of cannabinoids, which leads to a more unadultered and equilized experience so you do not miss out on any of the plant's benefits.




What are adaptogens?


Adaptogenic plants are believed to act as body-system modulators and promotors of homeostasis/biological balance. Rather than taken to treat symptoms, adaptogens are taken daily to fortify the body's own adaptive resilience to stressors. The term "adaptogen" was coined by A.V. Lazarev in 1947, a Russian pharmacologist. It refers to any substance that allows the subject to counteract stressors (of any type) through non-specific resistence, (ex. adaptation to the stress, be it chemical, metallic, electromagnetic or organic, such as bacterial, viral, parasitic or fungal infections. The stress could also be personal, such as due to overwork, overconsumption or athletic exertion; and the stress could be emotional, such as due to grief, fear, loss and other factors. To be an adaptogen, the herb must haveas close to zero side effects as possible (ex cannot interfere with normal physiological functions). Examples of adaptogenic plants; HEMP Reishi Mushroom Ashwagandha Eleuthero Holy Basil (Tulsi) Ginseng Rhodiola Schizandra Astragalus Licorice Shittake Mushroom Cordyceps ... just to name a few, wow! #thePOWERofNature

Study after study, even studies from The World Healh Organizatiion conclude that HEMP'S health and therapeudic benefits may; reduce chronic pain (by binding to CB1 receptors while reducing swelling), reduce rheumatoid arthritis, reduce fibromyalgia, improve symptoms of MS (multiple sclerosis) by protecting neurons (Neuroprotective) reduce joint inflammation, reduce memory problems, reduce anxiety, cognitive impairment and even depression reduce nausea, reduce schizophrenia, may assist in diabetes (help regulate blood sugar and lower insulin resistance), reduce PTSD, help with alcoholism, reduce strokes, relieve symptoms of IBD (Chron's or Colitis) through its anti-inflammatory effects reduce cardiovascular disease, combat Alzheimer's by removing plaque that block neuron-signaling, improve sleep quality and restore respiratory stability to those with sleep apnea, clear acne by stopping fats from building on the skin, Even Harvard Medical School reports it is "an option for treating different types of chronic pain" The natural pain relief properties of HEMP are so remarably effective that the U.S. government even hold a patent (#6,630,507) on some of its healing properties.
