Hemp is an amazing plant, long revered in many cultures for it's healing properties and life enhancing benefits.
Today as hemp re-enters the herbal apothecary we are once again able to have access to this incredible plant ally.
HEMP CBD BENEFITS:
Promoting a sense of calm & wellbeing
Improved moisture in skin & hair
Reduced stress & anxiety
Relief from inflammation
Relief from dry itchy skin
The skin is our largest organ and has cannabinoid receptors in it which can topically absorb hemp extracts for increased immune function, anti inflammation, increased hydration, improved skin texture & tone. Internally CB1 & CB2 receptors are also found through out our organs which leads us to understand how regular use of hemp extract as a wellness remedy is nourishing us deeply inside and out.
OUR HEMP EXTRACTS:
All of our +CBD products are made with non-GMO CBD extract blended with whole plant hemp essential oils.
Many of our skincare products also contain hemp essential oil with or without the added CBD as well.
The synergy of these two ingredients makes a superior CBD product, because the hemp terpenes allow the CBD to be more easily absorbed into the body and increase the anti-inflammatory benefits.

WHAT ARE TERPENES?
terpenes (plural noun)any of a large group of volatile unsaturated hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants, especially conifers and citrus trees. They are based on a cyclic molecule having the formula C10H16.
late 19th century: from German Terpentin ‘turpentine’ + -ene.
Furthermore, they are aromatic organic hydrocarbons. You can find them in a variety of plants and even some insects. Now, many people use the term when referring to cannabis terpenes.
The terpene profile helps us do more than distinguish strains by smell. It can also help us understand why people with medical conditions seem to benefit more from one strain over another with a similar THC level.
Dr. Ethan Russo, MD, the Director of Research and Development at International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute and a Senior Medical Advisor to GW Pharmaceuticals found CBD antagonized the effects of THC during a study in 2006. Further research found the presence of other cannabinoids in combination with THC to enhance the overall effects.
After research illustrated the synergistic or “entourage effect” between two cannabinoids, Dr. Russo went on to study the synergistic effects of cannabinoids and terpenes.
Russo’s research on cannabis synergy concluded that terpenoid content offers “complementary pharmacological activities that may strengthen and broaden clinical applications and improve the therapeutic index of cannabis extracts.”
