Relief is just a few drops away

African american man laughingHow’s your quality of life? With issues like anxiety, poor sleep and other health-related concerns at an all-time high, people are naturally turning to solutions — both natural and manmade — to feel better. Fortunately, more people than ever before are also eschewing prescription medications— primarily because they want to avoid potential side effects. And they’re right to worry!

While these are commonly prescribed today, doctors and pharmacists are both in agreement that there are risks and side effects to consider. Of those that seek traditional forms of treatment with prescription medications, most patients find that they will have to try at least a few medications before finding one (or a combination) that works for them. And in the meantime, they’ll experience the frustration that comes with trying to learn which chemicals work, or are simply tolerated, by their bodies. It can be a grueling and fraught process.

The good news is there are safe alternatives, like CBD oil. Many people have had success with using CBD oil to manage anxiety, reduce inflammation and improve sleep quality. To understand why, let’s look at the science. It all stems from inflammation, which is part of the body’s immune response. You might not associate mental health issues with inflammation, but they are in fact related. Scientists believe inflammation messes with our brains and subsequently may cause anxiety disorders. Anxiety-prone individuals may have higher levels of a protein complex, while those with lower levels report lower rates of anxiety.

So how does CBD oil enter the equation? CBD oil is a dietary supplement and an excellent source of nutrients that can be safely consumed as part of a daily diet. It is rich in natural cannabinoids, legal in every state, but not psychoactive. This means that it does not cause one to get “high” due to the absence of all but a trace of THC. THC is the chemical that is responsible for the getting high effect. We use industrial hemp in our CBD oil products, which is categorized as having less than .3 percent THC. And thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018, the legality in all 50 states is clear. Last, CBD oil has been proven in many published studies to have beneficial clinical effects for the conditions we mentioned, all of which we see in our practice every day.

Science-based reasons why organic is better— for everything

42031415_MAre you seeking a high-quality, medical-grade potency, safe and effective CBD oil? Many people are beginning to learn more about the wellness benefits, and want to explore their options. If you or a loved one has health issues, even more is at stake regarding the quality of the food, products and medicine that you take. That’s why we want to make a critical recommendation: choose organic.

Chances are, you’re one of the many Americans choosing to eat a healthier diet and trying to live a lifestyle that supports wellness. Maybe you’ve adopted a fitness regimen; maybe you’ve already started eating more fruits and vegetables, and are choosing organic produce when you can. If so, then it will be no surprise to you that we’d recommend choosing an organic CBD oil, as well.

The preference for organic products isn’t just a trend among health-conscious people. Science is demonstrating that organic farming and practices are better for everyone, and have a range of measurable benefits.

Please, don’t just take our word for it. Here are three reasons that the experts recommend going organic.

Reason 1: Organic produce has a higher nutritional value. According to some research, plants actually produce higher levels of the vitamins, phytochemicals, and antioxidants that strengthen their defenses against natural pests (bugs), weeks, and other adverse conditions. Those increased nutrients are good for our bodies.

Reason 2: Organic produce is less likely to be contaminated by chemicals and heavy metals that can have adverse impacts on our bodies, health, and wellbeing. Why take the chance? We know that common pesticides, such as Roundup, have been shown to be known carcinogens. Others can cause negative cognitive impacts, inflammation in the body, and have a range of other negative impacts. Why take the risk? And if you’re suffering from a pre-existing health condition or long-term illness, why add more burden and strain on your body by taking in toxic chemical residue?

Reason 3: Organic farming and production practices support healthy agriculture — which leads to a healthier people and communities. Limiting and disallowing chemical pesticide use spares the soil from building up residue. It allows for the growth of natural bugs that have an overall beneficial impact on the environment. It avoids breeding superstrains of bacteria that have become resistant to chemicals and more likely to cause illness, and resistant to antibiotic treatments. Organic practices also spare pollinators —such as bees, and birds — which help crops to produce year after year. All of these practices lead to a healthier, more nutritious yield.

Just as organic is best for our food, it is also best for nutritional support products like CBD Oil. By now, many of you know about the benefits of full-spectrum CBD Oil for anxiety, inflammation, pain and sleep, but most don’t know that most CBD Oil comes from overseas, is grown in toxic soil and is extracted using a chemical extraction method that may leave traces behind. Our CBD Oil is organically grown, extracted using the safest and best extraction method, CO2 extraction and is produced at a facility run by the same organization as the growers, thus ensuring high quality, safe and effective CBD Oil.
