Phytocannabinoids Vs. Endocannabinoids: What’s The Difference?

November 23rd, 2021 by David Kranker

Phytocannabinoids Vs Endocannabinoids

Since hemp was legalized in 2018, millions of Americans have tried a CBD product. In fact, according to a 2019 Gallup poll, 14% of adults in the United States say that they use CBD. Yet despite the popularity of CBD, many people are unfamiliar with the science behind it and many of the terms used in the CBD world.

One example is cannabinoids, a substance that is critical to maintaining balance in our bodies. While many people are aware that cannabinoids can be extracted from the hemp plant, they may not know that our own bodies also produce cannabinoids. The main difference between plant-based cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) and our bodies’ cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) is where they are produced.

Cannabinoids play an important role in our overall health and wellbeing. Boosting our natural endocannabinoids by taking a phytocannabinoid like CBD may assist our bodies with a number of conditions. Below, we explain more about what cannabinoids are – and how phytocannabinoids may benefit us.

What Are Cannabinoids?

If you are familiar with the term “cannabinoid,” you may associate it with cannabis or marijuana. This term is typically used to describe naturally-occurring substances found in the cannabis or hemp plant. To date, scientists have identified more than 100 cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is known for being the psychoactive component in marijuana.

These cannabinoids may also be referred to as phytocannabinoids. The prefix “phyto” simply means that the cannabinoids are derived from a plant source (such as the cannabis sativa plant). Most people drop the “phyto,” and simply refer to these compounds as cannabinoids.

However, the human body also produces its own cannabinoids, known as endogenous cannabinoids, or endocannabinoids. The prefix “endo” means within, which indicates that these cannabinoids originate within the body. Endocannabinoids play a crucial role in maintaining balance in our bodies.

The difference between phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids is where they are produced. Phytocannabinoids are produced by plants, while endocannabinoids are produced by mammals (including dogs and cats). Both types of cannabinoids are linked to the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a complex system in our bodies that helps to maintain homeostasis, or balance. Scientists discovered the ECS in 1992 while performing research on THC. Their discovery of an endocannabinoid in the human brain confirmed that the human body produces cannabinoids of its own.

The ECS consists of three primary components: endocannabinoids, receptors and enzymes. As described above, endocannabinoids are molecules that are made by our bodies. So far, experts have identified two critical endocannabinoids: anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglyerol (2-AG). The human body produces these endocannabinoids as needed.

Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body. There are two main receptors: CB1, which are found in the central nervous system, and CB2, which are found in the peripheral nervous system. Endocannabinoids bind to either receptor based on what is necessary to maintain homeostasis in the body.

Finally, enzymes are responsible for breaking down endocannabinoids after they have performed their function. Fatty acid amide hydrolase breaks down AEA, which monoacylglycerol acid lipase usually breaks down 2-AG.

While scientists have not yet discovered all of the ECS’ functions, research has connected it to a number of functions in the human body, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Inflammation
  • Mood
  • Metabolism
  • Appetite and digestion
  • Motor control
  • Bone remodeling and growth
  • Liver function
  • Learning and memory
  • Sleep
  • Cardiovascular system function
  • Reproductive system function and fertility
  • Liver function
  • Skin and nerve function
  • Stress response

The ECS kicks in when something is out of balance in your body. For example, if you hurt your back, the ECS may release endocannabinoids to target CB1 receptors in a spinal nerve to relieve pain and reduce inflammation – bringing your body to homeostasis. Importantly, because endocannabinoids are produced when needed, there isn’t a standard level of endocannabinoids that should be present in your body.

Low levels of endocannabinoids, or ECS dysfunction, may be linked to certain conditions, such as migraines, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome. These conditions often do not have a clear underlying cause, so scientists have theorized that clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) may be the reason that some people develop these issues. Although the research into CECD is still emerging, it is possible that taking phytocannabinoids – such as CBD – could help people who have low levels of endocannabinoids.

Can Taking Phytocannabinoids Benefit Me?

Adding a phytocannabinoid, such as CBD, CBG, CBN and other phytoannabinoids to your diet may boost your health and wellness in a number of ways. While research into CBD is still in its early stages, scientists have found that phytocannabinoids like CBD may help to alleviate certain conditions, including:

Because CBD affects people in different ways – and may interact with certain medications – you should always consult with your doctor before taking CBD or another supplement. Your doctor may also be able to advise you about proper serving sizes and other potential benefits of CBD.

If you are interested in trying CBD for yourself, be sure to look for products that have been independently tested, with the results available online for your review. Because CBD is not currently regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this is the best way to ensure that you are getting what you pay for – and not getting anything that you don’t want.

Why Can’t You Buy CBD Oil on Amazon?

November 5th, 2021 by David Kranker

Why Can't You Buy CBD on Amazon?

Green Wellness · Why Can’t You Buy CBD Oil On Amazon?

Quick Summary

CBD is specifically listed on Amazon’s restricted product list. This means that retailers are technically not allowed to sell CBD products on Amazon. Nevertheless, some retailers are selling CBD products on Amazon through a loophole by labeling the products as hemp or hemp oil products. We do not recommend purchasing CBD products from Amazon. You’ll not only be paying a premium, but you may also be buying a product that doesn’t work or doesn’t actually contain any CBD at all. It’s much better to buy CBD from a trusted online source, with available lab reports and customer service, instead of Amazon.

If you’re like most Americans, when you need something, you hop onto Amazon. The retail giant accounts for 37.7% of all online sales in the United States, and has rapidly expanded its business, offering delivery of certain products within 2 hours in some areas. Yet there are products that Amazon doesn’t offer — such as CBD oil.

It may seem outrageous that something that is sold in stores across the United States can’t be purchased on Amazon. Yet the reason why is relatively simple: Amazon forbids the sale of supplements that contain controlled substances. Although CBD oil contains only trace amounts of the psychoactive component of marijuana, THC, Amazon relies on a federal law that considers marijuana to be a controlled substance.

Fortunately, there are ways to obtain high quality CBD oil and related products beyond Amazon. This article explores the reasons behind Amazon’s ban on CBD products — and explains why you shouldn’t search for CBD products by a different name on Amazon.

How Amazon’s Rules Limit the Sale of Certain Products

Amazon has a lengthy list of “restricted” products that either cannot be sold on its site, or can only be sold in limited circumstances. This list incorporates many items that cannot be sold on Amazon for obvious reasons, such as alcohol, tobacco, and live animals. It also strictly limits how dietary supplements — such as CBD oil — can be sold.

There are a number of rules that must be followed in order for a seller to list dietary supplements for sale on Amazon. For example, supplements must be sealed in their original packaging, and cannot have the logo of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or otherwise claim that the product is FDA approved. There are also restrictions on the ingredients contained in the supplement.

Under Amazon’s policy on supplements, these products “must not contain controlled substances, such as Cannabidiol (CBD), a Schedule I Controlled Substance.” This policy is based on the designation of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law. According to Amazon, “Controlled substances are drugs that are illegal, such as cocaine or heroin. Products used with controlled substances may be considered drug paraphernalia.” CBD is specifically listed by Amazon as a “known prohibited product.” Read the rest of this entry »


Can CBD Help With A Hangover?

September 27th, 2021 by David Kranker

CBD For Hangovers

Everyone has their own special remedy for a hangover. Some people swear by Pedialyte and Gatorade. Others prefer pickle juice or a greasy burger. We have no doubt your hangover cure of choice works well, but there may be an alternative remedy that might be even easier than trying to stomach cherry tomatoes with a glass of milk (yuck). Can CBD help alleviate hangover symptoms? In this post we’ll be exploring CBD oil as a potential remedy for hangovers.

Hangover: About & Causes

Hangovers are a collection of signs and symptoms that range from uncomfortable to downright painful depending on the person and the level of alcohol consumption among other factors. Everyone knows hangovers are caused by an over-consumption of alcohol, but not everyone knows how drinking leads to the symptoms experienced with a hangover.

Ethanol (the alcohol in your drink) is a toxic chemical for your body that acts as a diuretic. What this means is that alcohol inhibits the body’s release of a hormone called vasopressin. Vasopressin tells your kidneys to reabsorb water rather than flush it out through the bladder. When vasopressin release is suppressed, the kidneys release more water, which creates a dehydrating effect. Dehydration is the main culprit for many hangover symptoms, but other symptoms arise from the changes in the body as it works to eliminate the toxins as quickly as possible.

Hangover symptoms will disappear on their own, but can take up to 24 hours to do so. Symptoms can typically be eliminated faster with proper care and attention.

Symptoms of a Hangover & CBD’s Potential Role

Headaches

As previously mentioned, alcohol is a diuretic. When alcohol causes fluid to move through the kidneys to produce urine, the process also flushes out some electrolytes such as magnesium, sodium, and potassium from the bloodstream into the urine. The combination of dehydration and nutrient deficiencies can produce splitting headaches, as well as brain fog.

Can CBD Cure a Hangover Headache?

Dehydration causes an inflammatory response in the structures that surround your brain, which results in the pain you end up feeling in your head. CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, CBD could have a positive effect in reducing the aches and pains induced with a hangover.

Nausea

A rise in alcohol levels in the bloodstream can set off an alarm in the portion of the brainstem known as the vomiting center (the part of the brain responsible for controlling nausea and vomiting). The vomiting center can trigger contractions in the smooth muscles lining the digestive tract to expel substances via vomiting. This action can prevent the absorption of toxic substances into the bloodstream.

Alcohol can also cause your stomach to produce more acid, which delays digestion and can lead to feelings of nausea.

Can CBD Cure Hangover Nausea?

Unfortunately, CBD can’t do much to prevent or remedy the effects of alcohol on stomach acid. However, CBD may be able to indirectly alleviate nausea symptoms through its effects on serotonin in the brainstem.

CBD acts upon CBD1 and CBD2 located throughout the body as part of the endocannabinoid system. Coincidentally, the vomiting center is regulated in part by that same endocannabinoid system. Research has shown that CBD indirectly exerts anti-nausea effects by activating the 5HT-1A receptors (otherwise known as the serotonin receptors) in the brainstem. Activation of these receptors is believed to lower the release of 5-HT (serotonin), which then reduces the sensation of nausea and the urge to vomit. Therefore, CBD may be able to indirectly help with hangover induced nausea.

Fatigue

The fatigue associated with hangovers is often due to low blood blood sugar levels. Many wines, beers, and cocktails are high in sugar. It may seem counterintuitive that drinks high in sugar cause low blood sugar levels, but the reason is insulin.

Insulin is a hormone released by the pancreas as blood sugar levels rise. The job of insulin is to transfer sugar into cells where it can be used to produce energy for the body. Insulin reduces the amount of sugar in the bloodstream as it transfers sugar into cells. Thus, when we stop taking in simple sugars after a spike, there is a point where blood sugar levels crash for a period of time. The crash normally happens in your sleep, which can leave you feeling fatigued the following morning.

Can CBD Cure Hangover Fatigue?

There isn’t much CBD can do for your blood sugar levels in the short-term. However, prolonged use of CBD for a hangover, or for daily wellness, may help to protect the body from the negative effects alcohol has on blood sugar levels. Chronic alcohol use can cause frequent spikes and drops in blood sugar levels, which can lead to insulin sensitivities over time. One particular study found that cannabinoids can reduce insulin resistance by up to 17%. Regular consumption of CBD could provide long-term protective effects for your blood sugar levels.

Dehydration

Dehydration is a symptom that comes as a direct result of alcohol being a diuretic. Naturally, when you’re excreting more water than you’re taking in, the result will be dehydration. Dehydration would be the reason you may wake up dry-mouthed, lightheaded, and/or dizzy after a night of drinking.

Can CBD Cure Hangover Dehydration?

CBD can’t really do anything for dehydration and it has little to do with urine production. The best cure for dehydration is to make sure you’re drinking plenty of water to offset the fluid loss caused by alcohol consumption.

Anxiety & Depression

There is some truth to alcohol being able to reduce stress. In fact, small amounts of alcohol can induce similar effects to anti-anxiety medications. However, excessive alcohol consumption can actually cause you to be more anxious and depressed. Alcohol changes the level of serotonin, cortisol and other neurotransmitters in the brain, which can worsen anxiety and depression.

Can CBD Cure Post-Drinking Anxiety & Depression?

Fortunately, the anxiolytic effects of CBD have been found to be similar to those of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. As previously mentioned, CBD interacts with the 5HT-1A receptors to regulate anxiety and fear. CBD can help maintain your cortisol levels and ease your brain’s response to stress.

Hangover Relief Without The High

CBD – or cannabidiol – is one of over a hundred different cannabinoids. CBD can often be confused with another popular cannabinoid, THC. However, the two cannabinoids are very different. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and won’t make you feel high or stoned. CBD products produced with industrial hemp can contain THC depending on the processing level. However, industrial hemp plants are legally required to contain no more than .3% THC. This trace amount of THC is not nearly enough to produce a high. You can also buy THC free CBD products if THC is a concern. Therefore, CBD can provide hangover relief without a high, so that you can get your day back on track as quickly as possible.

New CBD Hangover Kit

If you’re interested in trying CBD for hangovers, Green Wellness Life has created a CBD hangover kit you can purchase that includes everything you’ll need to relieve your hangover. The kit comes with CBD Beverage Packets in Lemonade or Fruit Punch, The Good Patch Revive CBD patch, MedCBDx CBD Chewing Gum, and a Green Wellness water bottle. The kit is perfect for parties, weddings, vacations, and bachelor and bachelorette parties.

View The Kit

Can CBD Be Mixed With Alcohol?

There are a few different substances that may produce an adverse interaction with CBD. However, alcohol is not one of them. Studies have found that CBD and alcohol can be consumed simultaneously without producing any adverse effects. That is precisely why you may have come across CBD-infused beer, which is growing in popularity. So, if you think you still have alcohol in your system, or you want to try getting a head start on fighting your hangover symptoms by consuming CBD oil while drinking alcohol, you can take CBD oil without any issues.

Explore CBD For Yourself

It’s one thing to read about what CBD could potentially do for you. It’s another to experience what CBD does for you personally. If you’re interested in exploring CBD for hangovers, feel free to browse our CBD shop.

At Green Wellness Life, we are not doctors. We can’t diagnose, treat, or prescribe any ailments.

Hemplucid CBD Review

September 10th, 2021 by David Kranker

Hemplucid CBD Review

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen or heard about CBD. What used to be a niche product that could only be found in specialty stores is now available almost anywhere – including in online stores.

Now that the industrial production of hemp is legal in the United States, there are tons of CBD companies operating throughout the country. While the ready availability of CBD is great for anyone interested in natural wellness, having so many brands to choose from can make it hard to know which one is right for you.

At Green Wellness Life, we know how hard it can be to pick a CBD product. That’s why we don’t just tell you about the amazing properties of CBD or share information about the hemp plant. We also offer our own honest reviews of the products that we sell, so that you can make an informed decision.

One of our top brands is Hemplucid CBD. This company only sells products made from certified organic hemp – and uses one of the safest and cleanest extraction methods. Below, we outline what you need to know about the company and its products, and provide our thoughts on the Hemplucid CBD products that we sell.

Hemplucid CBD Company Overview

Based in Utah, Hemplucid is grounded in a concept of “purpose” – which is why the letter “p” is a prominent part of their logo. According to the company, their purpose is to produce pure products that help people experience life again.

Hemplucid is committed to providing factual information about what their products can and cannot do (unlike some CBD scam companies that make outlandish claims). They  know that hemp has a lot of amazing properties, and believe that the best way for people to discover that is by being truthful about what the science shows about CBD.

In order to provide the highest quality products, Hemplucid uses only USDA certified organic farms and extractors based in the U.S. to grow and process their ingredients. All hemp plants used by the company originated in Colorado – a state that is widely recognized for expertise in the field of cannabis. Through nearly a decade of selective breeding, Hemplucid has developed a strain of hemp that is rich in terpenes, has a high concentration of CBD, and has a range of secondary cannabinoids.

All Hemplucid products are independently tested by a third party laboratory. The results of these tests are available online, with a QR code printed on each package so that you can easily find this information. By viewing the certificate of analysis (CoA), you can verify the CBD concentration and purity of a particular product.

Hemplucid uses super-critical CO2 extraction to obtain CBD from hemp plants. This method uses no solvents, and is known to be safe and clean. The resulting product is a higher quality, with terpene profiles fully intact.

Green Wellness Life stocks Hemplucid CBD products in our online store for two simple reasons: (1)  they meet our criteria for any CBD product (independently tested and made from USA-grown hemp); and (2) we have found their products to be safe and effective. Made from full spectrum CBD, these products get us as close as possible to the whole plant. We believe that they’re a great choice for anyone committed to organic products that can make a difference in your health and wellness.

Currently, we stock Hemplucid CBD tinctures, edibles, creams, and even a pet product. Interested in learning more? Read on for our honest review of Hemplucid CBD.

Hemplucid CBD Oil Tincture Review

Hemplucid CBD Oil Tincture

Hemplucid CBD Oil Tincture Overview

Oil tinctures are some of the most effective ways to take CBD. With 1000 mg of full spectrum CBD per bottle, Hemplucid CBD Oil Tincture is a great option for anyone interested in trying CBD. 

Full spectrum CBD contains all of the beneficial compounds found in the hemp plant – including CBD, trace amounts of THC, other cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. It is as close to the whole plant as you can get. Taking full spectrum CBD may also give you the benefit of the entourage effect, where each of these naturally-occurring components work together to produce an effect that is greater than it would be if you took just one.

Each 1 mL serving size contains 32 mg of CBD. It is also USDA certified organic, made from hemp grown and manufactured in the United States. The CBD extract is suspended in organic hemp seed oil, giving you an extra nutritional boost from this incredibly healthy oil. 

The CBD in this product is extracted using a clean supercritical CO2 extraction method, which results in fewer impurities.  Like all Hemplucid CBD products, this tincture is third party tested to ensure quality.

To take Hemplucid’s CBD oil tincture, simply place your desired serving size under your tongue and hold it for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing. As a general rule, you should start with a smaller amount – such as .5 ml, or 16 mg of CBD – to see how it affects you before increasing the serving size. Be sure to consult with your doctor before adding CBD to your diet.

Our Review of Hemplucid CBD Oil Tincture

At Green Wellness, we focus on health and wellbeing using natural products. That is why we truly appreciate Hemplucid’s focus on using organic ingredients and the cleanest extraction process. This oil also gets top marks from us for not having any additives – just organic hemp seed oil and CBD extract.

One member of our team struggles with depression, particularly during the dark winter months. Last year, she started taking Hemplucid’s CBD oil tincture each morning. In her words, “I can’t express how much this has helped me have a more upbeat mood. I used to get home from work in the winter and eat carbs and veg out in front of the TV until I went to bed. My overall mood has stabilized, and I no longer feel down in the dumps during the winter. This tincture has definitely earned a spot in my daily routine!”

Hemplucid CBD Water Soluble Tincture Review

Hemplucid Water Soluble CBD Tincture

Hemplucid Water Soluble CBD Tincture Overview

Taking a CBD oil tincture sublingually (under your tongue) isn’t for everyone. Most CBD oils can’t be mixed in a beverage, as it will simply stick to your glass instead of being mixed into your drink. By using a unique carrier, Hemplucid Water Soluble CBD Tincture allows you to mix your CBD oil into your favorite beverage – making it that much easier to take CBD.

Each 1 ounce bottle of Hemplucid Water Soluble CBD tincture contains 1,000 mg of full spectrum CBD. It is made with a vegetable-glycerin carrier oil that – unlike most oils – is fully soluble in water. The ultra-refined dewaxed CBD concentrate bonds to the vegetable glycerin, producing nanoparticles that easily dissolve into the bloodstream – making the CBD quickly and efficiently available to the body.

This product contains less than 0.3% THC, in accordance with federal law, so it won’t get you high (and won’t show up on a standard drug test). Because it dissolves easily in the body, it is fast-acting, with effects felt immediately. Like other Hemplucid CBD products, it is formulated using organic products in the United States, and is third party tested for safety and quality.

Hemplucid water soluble CBD tincture is considered more of a booster product, as it will not bind to lipids for a long-acting effect. To take this tincture, mix your desired serving size into a beverage of your choice – water, juice, tea, or even your morning cup of coffee. A 1 mL drop of this tincture contains 32 mg of CBD; you can adjust the serving size based on your specific needs.

Our Review of Hemplucid Water Soluble CBD Tincture

Taking CBD oil orally is incredibly effective – but it isn’t always pleasant. The grassy, earthy taste of CBD can be off-putting for some people. With Hemplucid’s Water Soluble CBD tincture, you can mix the tincture into a drink you love to get the benefits of CBD oil with a flavor you enjoy.

One staffer reports that taking a CBD product daily has helped her manage her anxiety. Yet with so much going on in the world, she often finds herself on the verge of panic. She has found that taking a serving of Hemplucid Water Soluble CBD tincture helps her in the moment.

She reports, “CBD is great for keeping my anxiousness at bay – but if I am feeling really upset, it often takes too long to work. This water soluble tincture has been the best solution. I mix it into a cup of tea when I am feeling particularly upset. As I drink, I can feel my stress levels drop. It is truly amazing how quickly it works. While it won’t replace my daily CBD regime, it is a great booster that helps me deal with episodes of heightened anxiety that rear up from time-to-time.”

Hemplucid CBD Gummies Review

Hemplucid CBD Gummies

Hemplucid CBD Gummies Overview

CBD oil tinctures are great – but they aren’t for everyone. If you don’t want to deal with the taste of CBD or fiddle with the dropper to get the right serving size, then you may consider Hemplucid CBD Gummies. Each gummy contains 25 mg of CBD, making it an easy way to get a precise amount of CBD.

There are 30 pieces in a package of these gummies, for a total of 750  mg of CBD. The gummies are pear-flavored, using all-natural pear juice to mask the taste of CBD.  This product contains full spectrum CBD, which may produce the entourage effect as the CBD, trace amounts of CBD, terpenes and flavonoids work together.

Like all Hemplucid CBD products, the gummies are made from hemp that is certified organic and grown in the United States. The hemp is extracted using the supercritical CO2 method, with the final product tested by a third party laboratory. You can view the CoA for these gummies online to check for potency and safety.

Taking Hemplucid CBD gummies is easy: just eat one to two gummies each day. As a general rule, you should start with a smaller serving (one gummy) and see how your body reacts to it. After 7 days, if you haven’t found relief, consider taking a second gummy each day.

Our Review of Hemplucid CBD Gummies

While we love the effects of CBD at Green Wellness Life…we don’t always love how it tastes. It can also be a challenge to get a precise serving using a dropper, especially in the morning when we are busy trying to get kids out the door to school and getting ourselves to work. That is why we love Hemplucid’s pear-flavored CBD gummies.

It may be hard to believe, but the natural flavoring does a great job of covering up the earthy taste of full spectrum CBD. There is nothing simpler than just grabbing a gummy (or two) as we rush out the door. 

One member of our team has chronic pain from an old sports injury. She usually doesn’t have sharp or severe pain, but deals with low-level aches and pains throughout the day. She has found that the slow, steady release of CBD through these gummies is perfect for her needs.

She tells us that Hemplucid CBD gummies are her favorite choice for a daily dose of CBD. Taking CBD consistently helps her stay on top of her pain, and the gummy form makes it easy to get a consistent amount of CBD every day. She says, “I wasn’t sure that pear juice would be enough to hide the taste of CBD – which I really don’t love. But these gummies are surprisingly delicious, and I love that they aren’t filled with fake ingredients that I really don’t want to put in my body. My pain is much more manageable when I take 2 of these gummies in the morning, before getting started with my hectic day.”

Hemplucid CBD CBDA Body Cream Review

Hemplucid CBD and CBDa Body Cream

Hemplucid CBD and CBDa Body Cream Overview

CBD isn’t just helpful when taken orally. Its healing properties can also be used topically – such as by applying Hemplucid CBD and CBDa Body Cream to your skin. Each 2 ounce jar contains 1,000 mg of raw, full spectrum CBD.

This cream is made with aloe vera, cocoa butter, coconut oil, Vitamin E oil, and olive oil to be rich, soothing, and nourishing. It also contains helpful extracts, including chamomile extract and blood orange oil. When combined with raw, all natural CBD oil and CBDa extract, the result is a thick cream that is perfect for joint pain and aches.

The combination of oils and extracts gives this cream a sweet hint of citrus. It is made from whole-plant CBD extract, including the beneficial CBDa cannabinoid. Like all Hemplucid products, it is made from hemp grown in the United States and third party tested for safety.

To use this cream, massage a small amount in a circular motion daily. Be sure to rub in the cream until it has absorbed into the skin, as this will increase effectiveness.

Our Review of Hemplucid CBD and CBDa Body Cream

Taking CBD by mouth is a good way to deal with issues that affect your whole body, like anxiety or arthritis. But what do you do when just one part of your body needs a little extra TLC? A CBD topical  like the Hemplucid CBD and CDBa body cream might be the answer.

One of our employees has chronic knee pain from old injuries. Her solution has been to take CBD daily – and rub on this cream when she is feeling extra achy.

According to her, “This cream is a godsend. There are some days that I don’t even want to get out of bed – that’s how much my knee hurts. I keep a jar of Hemplucid CBD and CBDa cream on my nightstand for just this reason. I rub it on my knee and start to feel the pain slowly decrease within 10 or 15 minutes. It is a lifesaver – and as a bonus, the skin on my knee has never been softer or smoother!”

Hemplucid Pets CBD Tincture Review

Hemplucid Pets CBD Tincture

Hemplucid Pets CBD Tincture Overview

CBD isn’t just for people! All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that may benefit from a CBD supplement. TheHemplucid Pets CBD Tincture is a good choice for anyone who wants to give their pets a boost of all-natural organic CBD.

Each 1 ounce bottle contains 300 mg of full spectrum CBD. Because this CBD is full spectrum, your four-legged friend may benefit from the entourage effect.  It comes in two flavors: chicken for dogs and fish for cats.

The chicken flavor has CBD oil suspended in hemp seed oil, with natural chicken flavorings. The fish flavor includes CBD and fish oil – the only fish oil-based pet CBD product that we know of on the market! Both flavors can be taken by either dogs or cats as both hemp seed oil and fish oil are safe for dogs and cats. 

These products are specially formulated for pets, so they don’t contain any ingredients that might be unsafe for your fur babies (like coconut oil – something that cats shouldn’t have). They’re made with all natural ingredients, including hemp that was grown and manufactured in the United States. Just like their human products, Hemplucid’s Pets CBD Tincture is third party tested with the CoA available online.

To give this product to your pet, mix 5 or more drops of the tincture into their food or apply it directly into their mouth, once or twice daily. The guidelines for pets is 1 to 2 mg of CBD per 10 pounds of body weight, but you should always consult with your vet before adding any supplement to your dog or cat’s diet. Starting with a smaller amount is a good idea, so that you can see how the CBD affects them before increasing the serving size.

Our Review of Hemplucid Pets CBD Tincture

At Green Wellness Life, we are passionate about a few things – like natural health and our fur babies. If you’re like us, your pets are part of your family and you only want the best for them. That is why we feel fully comfortable giving our pets Hemplucid’s Pets CBD Tincture.

One member of our team has an older cat who is having a lot of trouble getting around. She decided to start giving her cat a few drops of this tincture daily. The results were amazing: “Our cat had been having a really hard time doing things that he used to do easily – like jumping up on the couch to sit with me, or even walking on hard surfaces like my kitchen floor. I was starting to worry that I didn’t have much time with him, until I started adding Hemplucid Pets CBD tincture to his kibble each day. He LOVES the fish flavor (and he’s a pretty picky cat). Best of all, he doesn’t seem to be in pain anymore. He can’t tell me how he feels, but the way that he moves around the house tells me that this product is worth every penny. I highly recommend it.”
