What Are CBN, CBG, and CBDA?

January 17th, 2021 by Quinton Charles

 

 

QuintonBy Quinton Charles, Op-Ed Blogger

New acronyms?

While we typically associate cannabis with two cannabinoids (THC and CBD), there are dozens upon dozens of other, rarer, cannabinoids contained within each plant. So why don’t we hear more about these other chemical compounds? Their rarity. Most cannabis plants will contain only around 1% in mass of all the minor cannabinoids. In fact, this is why you don’t see isolates sold of CBN, CBDA, and CBG; they are too costly to isolate and sell at profit. 

But, despite their low concentrations in cannabis, they do have potential benefits to bodily wellness and their positive effects can be understood with a little reading and curiosity. Shall we delve deeper into three of the more common of these rare cannabinoids?

CBN: THC Transformed

Our first cannabinoid is CBN, which is a compound that arises when THC is subjected to high heat or light for long periods of time. This transformation is why cannabis with high levels of CBN has usually undergone oxidation or aging. It goes from being THC-9 (C21H30O2) to CBN (C21H26O2) by losing four Hydrogen molecules. 

But that sounds like a lot of confusing chemistry. What are the benefits of CBN and why should you care to know more about it? Before we continue to discuss the potential benefits and uses of CBN (in and out of the body), it needs to be understood that there is limited research on this compound. Only a handful of studies demonstrating CBN use in the human body have been published, and most current research focuses on its effects in mice (which, to these studies’ defense have remarkably similar nervous systems to humans. Who knew?)

The first use I want to focus on is the use of CBN as an antibacterial compound. In lab settings, CBN was tested on strains of MRSA bacteria that are resistant to traditional antibiotics. Researchers found it to be a potent antibacterial agent against these resistant strains. Perhaps in the future, we will see CBN used as a replacement for some antibiotic pairings. 

It may also have uses as a neuroprotectant. In one rodent study, researchers used CBN as a treatment for ALS and found that it was able to delay the onset of the condition. While further studies need to be conducted to determine if this effect is also seen in humans, these findings suggest that CBN may provide a powerful tool in the fight against ALS and other neurodegenerative conditions.

In other rodent studies, CBN increased the amount of food that rat subjects ate, suggesting that it could be an effective appetite stimulant. Since some avoid THC (another well-known appetite stimulant) due to its intoxicating effects, CBN could potentially offer an alternative for those seeking benefit without the high—but more research is needed.

Likely the most common recent application of this specific compound, however, has been to address those sleepless nights that I’m sure we are all too familiar with. CBN has long been associated with drowsiness. In the world of hemp and cannabis, there is a quote from Steep Hill, a cannabis laboratory, that is frequently used when describing CBN’s sedative effects. They claimed that the consumption of 2.5mgs to 5mgs pf CBN had the same level of sedation as a mild sedative, with a relaxed body sensation. More research is needed and Green Wellness does not diagnose, prescribe, or treat, but the potential sleep benefits are simply too good to ignore. With CBN sleep gummies, tinctures, and even capsules with higher levels of CBN, if interested there are lots of mechanisms to potentially benefit from the compound.

CBG: Decarboxylated CBGA

The CBG cannabinoid originally stems from CBGA. After undergoing an oxidation process, it becomes CBG, a compound that can directly interact with the endocannabinoid system of the body. 

One of the challenges of using CBG comes from the prohibitive cost of sourcing it. As a cannabis plant ages, more and more of the initial cannabinoids oxidize and turn into the common cannabinoids of CBD and THC. CBG, on the other hand, never comprises a significant proportion of the cannabinoids within a harvest of cannabis. 

This being said, despite the cost, difficulties of sourcing, and insufficient human research, CBG has been found to interact with the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors, having a strong affinity for the CB2 receptor. These receptors regulate physiological processes such as mood, pain response, and appetite. More research is needed, however, as CBG appears to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid receptors differently than either THC or CBD, producing unique physiological effects.

While there’s an abundance of awareness around the major cannabinoids THC and CBD, less is known about CBG.  CBG shares some similarities with CBD: it seems to be anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. However, CBG also boasts its own unique set of properties, offering potential therapeutic benefits such as treatment for inflammatory bowel disease and glaucoma in animal tests. I know I’m a broken record here, but, more research is needed (especially in humans). 

CBDA: CBD’s Precursor 

I think it is fair to say that, if you are a regular customer of ours, you know quite a good deal about CBD. Even if you don’t take it regularly, it seems that CBD has entered into the public consciousness these days (with many misunderstandings abounding). But where does CBD come from? The easy answer is the cannabis plant, which is mainly true. But were you aware that there is a chemical precursor to CBD? That precursor is CBDA. 

So how does CBDA become CBD? With heat and time. Think of CBDA as the “raw” form of CBD. In fact, a lot of people will take CBDA in capsules, tinctures, and topicals to get that raw form into their daily diet. We’ve definitely got more options for CBDA than CBG or CBN. Green Wellness carries many CBDA products with brands like Endoca, Plus CBD, Entourage CBD, and Hemplucid. But what are the benefits of this?

Your CB1 and CB2 receptors are the primary nodes in your body for actively making use of CBD, both that which you take as a supplement and that which is naturally produced within your body. CBDA doesn’t work in this way. Instead, CBDA interacts with the endocannabinoid system by inhibiting the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme. COX-2 enzymes are associated with inflammation after an injury or infection. By blocking COX-2 enzymes, CBDA can relieve inflammation and associated pain.

In one rodent study, scientists found CBDA affected levels of serotonin, a chemical produced by nerve cells to aid in signaling between cells. Serotonin is vital to core human functions like motor skills, sleeping, eating, digestion, and emotions. However, excess serotonin, which often is associated with stressors like chemotherapy, can cause nausea and vomiting. Vomiting can be controlled with medications, but nausea is harder to treat. But do not despair yet if you are a chemo patient! Scientists have demonstrated that CBDA can affect the body’s 5-HT serotonin-producing receptors, hinting at a potential use for CBDA as a medication for chemotherapy-induced nausea/vomiting (CINV) and other conditions that induce these symptoms. However, more research is needed.

We will keep you updated!

One recurrent theme throughout this blog was that more research was needed. While THC and CBD are gaining popularity, and the institutional barriers to research using these compounds are removed, it is important to keep in mind that there is a lot that is either not understood or is poorly understood about cannabis in relation to the human body. We will try to keep you up to date on relevant and recent research so that you can make informed decisions and purchases, and we always invite you to get in touch with us with any questions that you may have.

Plus CBD Review

November 8th, 2020 by Quinton Charles

Quinton

By Quinton Charles, Op-ed blogger

Who are they?

It’s time for another review. As per usual, I took some time to explore Plus CBD’s website to see if anything really stood out that I could bring to your attention. Unfortunately, there was not much written about the company’s story, so I was forced to deduce their values and goals from how they present their products and the information that they share. And I’ve got news.

They’re one of the good ones. Plus CBD logo

Like many other CBD brands, Plus CBD is big on third-party testing and increasing transparency when it comes to customer knowledge of their products. It is a point of pride for Plus CBD that all of their products sport a QR code that links to batch testing results for that specific product. In an industry like CBD, this is huge. 

But why is it such a big deal that Plus CBD is prioritizing testing and access to results? It has to do with how cannabis, as a plant, works. Some plants are better than others at cleaning the environment and healing mother nature. Cannabis is one of these superhero plants, as it soaks up large amounts of toxins from the soil and the air. While this is normally a good thing, problems can arise when a plant that has “cleaned up” an area is processed for commercial use. All of those toxins could wind up in you!

So how can this be avoided? By doing exactly what Plus CBD is: labeling and pushing for transparency. And they aren’t acting alone in doing this. Plus CBD is recognized by and has the approval of the US Hemp Authority, which is an organization founded with the purpose of recognizing CBD companies that operate safely, engage in third-party testing, and are committed to increasing the reliability of hemp products. 

As a part of this focus on transparency and customer awareness, Plus CBD also regularly publishes new blogs and videos discussing new developments in cannabis and our understanding of its uses, and also attempts to answer common questions that people often have about CBD. 

I think that these are all commendable in a company, and I look forward to reading more of their blogs in the future. Definitely give their website a look if you have the time. 

Plus CBD Products

I can praise a company’s website, commitment to safety and reliability, and their transparency all day, but that won’t help you decide what suits your needs best, will it? I love knowing that a company’s CBD is safe, but I also love knowing what product is best for my needs.

We carry five Plus CBD products:

Plus CBD Maximum Strength Formula Softgels Review

Plus CBD Maximum Strength 50mg SoftgelsI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, capsules are perfect for when you know how much CBD you need and want to stay consistent. Droppers can become messy and inaccurate, which is a big problem if you need to stay consistent with the amount of CBD you are intaking. Your body can build up a tolerance, so it is important to not wildly fluctuate the amount of CBD that it is getting. 

Plus CBD’s max strength softgels are useful for keeping consistent, and are also full-spectrum. Why point this out? Because, unlike an isolate, a full-spectrum product is going to give you the benefits of all the plant matter, CBD, terpenes, and all the other goodies contained in a cannabis plant. This is as close to nature as it gets, from the plant to you. And, with 50mg per capsule (of full-spectrum CBD, too), I am certain that it will meet your needs.

Plus CBD Gold Formula Skin Serum Review

Skin SerumThis one is a little different. I’ve covered lotions in the past (there are a lot of great options!), but this is a serum. Typically, you would use the serum to hydrate just like a lotion, but would apply less. This is because the serum is a very simple mixture of oils and CBD. 

I regularly get dry areas on my face during the winter, and I have found that this serum is one of the best ways to counter this problem. Unlike lotions, which are great but don’t seem to last all day, adding a little oil to the affected area helps me not crack and flake (gross, I know). 

This serum contains 50mg of CBD per bottle, so don’t expect to get too much CBD from it, but it is enough for what it is meant to do. It doesn’t feel as oily as you think it would on the skin, and the lavender scent is pleasant and subtle.

Plus CBD Hemp Oil Spray Review

Pluscbd oil evoo hemp oil spray cafe mochaThis is a fun one. CBD Spray! In many ways, this is similar to breath freshener spray. It smells like peppermint (or cafe mocha, if you prefer that option to peppermint), you spray it in your mouth from a small bottle, and it’s easily carried in a small bag or pocket. 

The bottle has 500mg of CBD total, which comes out to about 3mg per spray. It’s another full-spectrum, so you are getting all of the plant goodies along with the CBD!

I have found that this product is best used as a booster. Whenever you need a little more CBD, or just want some minty breath, it is a perfect product to pull out of a jacket pocket or a purse. I wouldn’t recommend use for anything more than a booster, though (who wants to spray that much?).

Plus CBD CBD & CBDa Softgels Review

raw softgelsThis is a little different from the other softgels. It’s technically full-spectrum, but it also contains CBDa. What is CBDa, you say? CBDa (cannabidiolic acid) is the precursor to CBD. CBDa, when it undergoes heat and processing, turns into CBD. The raw plant (contained in this product) contains large amounts of CBDa. 

Another cool fact is that CBDa has been shown to decrease inflammation in clinical studies due to how CBDa interacts with the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme. I’ll spare you the academic paper, but COX-2 basically increases and causes inflammation in the body, and CBDa actively blocks this enzyme. Pretty cool, right?

Because of this difference in ingredients, these softgels are only 5mg per capsule (a total of 300mg per bottle). Don’t be deceived by this small number, though. The CBDa more than makes up for the lower serving of CBD. 

View Product

Plus CBD Gold Softgels Review

Plus CBD Full Spectrum 15mg SoftgelThis last product is pretty straightforward. There are 60 capsules, totaling 900mg of CBD (or 15mg of CBD per capsule), and they are full-spectrum, giving you the benefits of the whole plant. 

At 15mg of CBD per capsule, this is a good option for people who need a stable serving of CBD, but don’t want the much larger 50mg serving.

Happy to help

Hopefully, you gained a little bit of insight into how cannabis plants work, what CBDa is, and how Plus CBD could be a good option for your CBD needs. We always are seeking to help our customers discover new CBD products, new ideas, and new knowledge.

The Environmental Benefits of Hemp

October 26th, 2020 by Quinton Charles

QuintonBy Quinton Charles, Op-ed blogger

With an ever increasing concern about climate change, we are all doing our best to positively impact our environment. There are lots of ways someone can help protect Earth like recycling, reducing water waste, using renewable energy, investing in energy efficient appliances, and much more. These aren’t new concepts, hopefully, but what may be new to you is the use of hemp to promote ecological sustainability and help the environment! If you are looking to do your part every day (or support companies that do), hemp is a fantastic way to do so. How, you ask? Let’s dive into the science behind hemp’s ability to do the Earth good.

Hemp’s Impact On Soil Quality

While most people are aware that plants are necessary for the creation of oxygen and sustaining ecosystems, not as many are aware of the vital role that soil plays in that process, and how hemp can restore soil. Because hemp is so porous, the plant fiber works like a sponge and will actually suck up heavy metals and pollutants from the soil.  

The health of that soil determines what plants can grow and whether those plants are able to  produce oxygen by converting carbon dioxide. Low-quality soil is not typically able to grow plants that are beneficial to human and ecological health, so hemp’s ability to clean up that soil can be a huge benefit.

Mary’s Nutritionals Brand Review

October 13th, 2020 by Quinton Charles

Quinton

By Quinton Charles, Op-ed blogger

Who is Mary’s Nutritionals?

As part of our ongoing commitment to bring you information about CBD and other hemp-derived products, I was asked to review Mary’s CBD brand and tell you everything relevant there is to know about them! 

For starters, I can tell you without a shred of doubt that this is one of the most unique CBD brands that I have researched. On my initial visit to their website, I was expecting (and was met with) the typical CBD homepage: crisp, well-taken photos of products, a signup line for an email newsletter, some links to learn about CBD, and a few streamlines to buy popular products. Sidestepping all of this, I went right for their “about” tab. Met with a little corporate-speak, I scroll down. 

Well, this is different. f

A manifesto? For a CBD company? I had seen mission statements galore, goals and feel-good statements, but never a manifesto. The word seemed strong, powerful, even, for a CBD company to use. Then I read it. A handful of sentences, punchy and short. These weren’t the words of a CEO, a satisfied customer, or a quirky hemp farmer. Here, on the web page before me, were words that claimed to be CBD itself. I’ll repost them here because the power of a sentence cannot be expressed with words beyond that sentence.

“I’ve been around since the beginning, and it’s time to set the record straight. For thousands of years, I’ve nurtured humanity. Helping shape consciousness, develop culture, and heal bodies. Your elders and your ancestors all revered me as Healer. They knew the truth.”

It had made an impression on me. I was hooked. Scrolling further, I came to familiar territory: a mission statement, with three goals. 

  1. An alternative to medicine, not alternative medicine
  2. Distilling the wisdom of plants to help people reach the full potential of their bodies, minds, and lives
  3. Maximizing the benefits of natural plant nutrients with clean delivery methods

While it is difficult to judge their success in these, they led me to a page that discussed the science behind Mary’s and how they want to be different from other CBD companies. 

The Science Behind Mary’s Nutritionals Products

Mary’s takes a different approach to CBD products. As one of their main goals is to create products that bring the most CBD to the bloodstream, they focus on transdermal products. What does this mean? Transdermal products are products like lotion, salves, or anything else that is applied to the skin. As Mary’s states on their website: “Research shows that transdermal delivery is the most effective method of delivering cannabis to the body, as it directly enters the bloodstream. When cannabis is smoked or eaten, patients may lose up to 70 percent of it to air vaporization, metabolism, and stomach acid, which is inefficient and makes accurate dosing difficult. Mary’s transdermal products are so effective that the dosing of a standard 10mg patch may be equivalent to that of an 80mg edible.” I was unable to find any sources of research that they mention on their website, but I would be interested in reviewing the science further. I think that these are interesting claims and that Mary’s business certainly operates in a manner consistent with their belief in this science. 

Mary’s Nutritionals CBD Products

As I’ve said before, any company is only as good as its product line. Mary’s has espoused transdermal CBD, and, as a result, most of my attention went into researching their much-loved CBD patch.

Mary’s Nutritionals CBD Topicals

Mary's Nutritionals CBD PatchesMary’s CBD patch is one of their touted products (see above), so it makes sense that we would offer it to our customers. But what do you need to know about it before you make a purchase? The most important detail (for any product) is going to be the amount of CBD within it. If your body is used to 30mg in a serving and you switch to a product with only 5mg of CBD per serving, you’re only going to be getting ⅙ of the total CBD that your body has been using normally. That’s not gonna work!

So what about this Mary’s patch? Each patch contains 10mg of full-spectrum CBD, which takes from around 8-12 hours to completely dispense into the body when used. The patches are sold individually, so there is the option to use more than one patch at a time if needed. This single-patch sale is also useful if you are not sure how much you need, and want to start with only 10mg; the option always exists to add another patch. These patches can also be cut in half (or even quartered), though doing so may reduce your measuring of milligrams to guesswork. Another convenient detail is that the patches are latex-free and hypoallergenic, so those with latex (or other) allergies need not worry about a reaction to the patch’s material.

Mary’s Nutritionals CBD Tinctures

The Remedy CBD Oil TinctureWhile it isn’t as strong as their patch (which, according to Mary’s science, is as strong as they come), we also carry a Mary’s CBD tincture, called “Remedy.” It’s a cinnamon-flavored, full-spectrum CBD oil tincture. Each bottle contains 500mg, with 2mg per 1 measured drop. This is ideal for those who do not need too much CBD, or for those looking to supplement their normal CBD intake with a small, measurable serving that can be scaled up or down depending on need (take a look at our blog dealing with boosters if you are searching for more products with this in mind). 

I wouldn’t recommend it to someone needing a larger supplement of CBD daily, as the relatively small serving size would be depleted quickly. Mary’s stands behind their patch enough to claim its superiority in some cases, so if you are looking for a stronger CBD product, definitely go for the patch and not the tincture. If you are looking for that small, controllable serving, however, go for the tincture!

Mary’s Nutritionals CBD Pet Products

Tails Hemp Extract BalmPets, like people, have an endocannabinoid system. As this system operates just like our own, so does it also benefit from supplementary CBD! We carry two of Mary’s pet products; one of these products is a topical, and the other is a tincture. 

Mary’s Nutritionals CBD pet topical is a hemp extract balm with 75mg of CBD in a 1.1 oz tube. Reasonably sized, it is a great option for any rashes, irritation, or skin issues that your pet may struggle with. One common use that I’ve heard for pet topicals like this is on areas of a pet that recently underwent surgery. The hair in that area is shaved, there may be stitches or scarring, and a little CBD can be helpful. If using the balm for this type of area on a pet, make sure to be careful and gentle in application. Hopefully, your pet will receive as much a benefit as you would from a CBD balm!

Tails Hemp Extract TinctureOur second pet product from Mary’s is a CBD pet tincture, which comes in two sizes:

  • 300mg bottle = 10mg per 1ml dropper
  • 900mg bottle = 30mg per 1ml dropper

Both options are bacon flavored, so I hope your furry friend enjoys breakfast! 

In all seriousness, though, these two size options enable a pet owner to gauge the proper amount of CBD required to see results in their pet. Have a larger dog that always seems to need more CBD? The 900mg bottle might be a better fit. Have an adorable little kitty that just needs some help with anxiety? The 300mg bottle might be best. You know the needs of your pets better than we do. 

Thank you for reading!

I truly hope that you enjoyed learning about Mary’s CBD as much as I did. We at Green Wellness Life are always eager to share what we have learned (and are learning each and every day!) with you.

CBD Boosters: About, Uses, & Where To Buy

September 14th, 2020 by Quinton Charles

CBD Boosters: What Are They, How Do I Use Them, and Where Can I Find Them?

What are CBD boosters?

CBD boosters are phenomenal. From helping with anxiety to combating my insomnia, I regularly use CBD boosters to supplement my daily CBD intake. But what exactly are they, and how do they differ from taking another CBD capsule or tincture(oil in dropper form)?

The first thing to know about boosters, is how to use them. A booster is used as a supplement to your supplements! Boosters are not meant to be used as your sole source of daily CBD. Instead they are meant to be a boost when you need a little extra (hence the name)! The reason for this is simple: A booster gets to work quickly but also leaves the system quickly – it doesn’t bind to your cells and keep working for you.  As such, it may be too little CBD for daily use.

While a booster product may be perfect for later in the day (I use mine before bed) when you are no longer feeling the effects of the CBD that you took in the morning, it likely won’t be strong enough to supplement your Endocannabinoid system for the whole day on its own. This is because Boosters are delivered differently to the system and they do not store in your lipids(fat cells). Instead they get to work much quicker than a daily supplement of CBD that routes through your digestive system, but they also wear off within a few hours.

So why would you want to buy a product that is a booster? Some days may be harder than others and you may just need a little boost. You may have overdone it in the yard or are spending a busy day out with family or friends. On these difficult days you may need more or less to supplement your bodies normal function. While there currently is no conclusive evidence on whether or not a tolerance of CBD is built up, some studies have shown that using too much CBD can lead to lower efficacy later on. Using a booster to get a little more CBD during the day alleviates this problem because the CBD is not stored in the body. Instead it gets to work quickly and then it dissipates.

How do I use CBD boosters?

 Now that I have you interested in using CBD boosters, how do you actually use them, you ask? Boosters come in a lot of different forms. There are many different types of boosters. Some of these include hemp flower(one to four inhales will usually constitute one serving) or for those of us who would prefer not to smoke CBD you can also get boosters in dissolvable tablets, chewing gum, mints, inhalers, drink shots or even a product you add to your water or juice (called a water soluble). I’ve always been partial to the CBD chewing gum, largely because it is slightly herbal and fresh, and feels like a relatively easy way to add some extra CBD to my day when I need it.

What does taking a booster look like? Let’s assume that you wake up around eight or nine to get ready for work, school, or anything else that you do during the day. Brush your teeth, shower, and have your breakfast/coffee and your daily CBD supplement (whether this be a capsule, tincture, or other form of CBD). Or maybe you took your daily CBD supplement before you went to bed the night before. You go on with your day, handling whatever craziness life (and 2020) throws at you. The car breaks down, someone loses a tooth, the dog has an accident on the new carpet, your Amazon package is either stolen or fails to arrive, you find out that your coworker failed to complete their part of the project on time. Whatever it is, you feel like you need some extra CBD to help out with anxiety, stress, falling asleep for your siesta, or any other conceivable reason. Should you take another serving, doubling your CBD intake for the day? Perhaps not. It is best to keep supplements regular in both serving size and frequency to avoid building a tolerance in your system. So what are your options? Maybe you have a puff (or two). We have all had those days. Or chew some gum. That extra CBD helps you feel better, and you go the rest of the day at relative ease. Repeat.

See how that boost can help out during the day? It is an auxiliary to your regular CBD supplement to help make it through when you need that little extra.

What are some CBD booster options?

As I mentioned above, boosters come in many forms. There are the chewing gum, the mints, vape pens (and cartridges), dissolvable tablets and water soluble tinctures. While these are all fairly self-explanatory, let me break down each option a bit more so that you can fully understand what each option offers.

CBD Gum Products

Chewing Gum: We have three varieties of CBD gum which range in mg from 10 mg to 15 mg of CBD per piece.  These three gums, MedCBDx CBD Chewing Gum,   Medterra CBD Chewing Gum, and Endoca Chewing Gum are good for an extra boost during the day or in the office (where you may want to be discreet). Just take out a chewing tablet and enjoy the fresh taste of gum, while the CBD gets to work quickly!

CBD Mint Products

CBD Mints: This is another good option for the office or school. Just like the chewing gum, the MedCBDx CBD Mints can be taken quickly for a boost that leaves your breath fresh and minty. Each mint contains 5mg of CBD for a total of 80mg per container of 16 mints. This option has a smaller serving size of CBD than the chewing gum, so it is a better option for those looking for only an incremental increase of CBD in their day.

pana health booster

Panacea F.A.S.T. CBD Dissolvable Tablets can be placed under the tongue or in the side of the mouth for a quick boost of CBD that enters the bloodstream and starts working right away. Ideal for helping with anxiety or getting to sleep, each bottle contains 750mg total divided into 30 tablets of 25mg CBD each. As one of our larger boosters, this product can deliver more CBD to your bloodstream (and to your Endocannabinoid system) than the other boosters can in a single serving. Dissolving under the tongue, it enters the bloodstream and starts working fast!

chill shot boosters

CBDFX Chill Shots: A quick and convenient option for your purse, gym bag or on the go.  Each shot of 20mg of CBD gets to work quickly and can be thrown in a workout bag for exercise recovery, in a lunch sack to help deal with your daily stress, or just chilled in the fridge, for when you get home and are ready to unwind.   Not only do the shots get you your 20 mg of CBD quickly but thy are packed with 200 mg of L-Theanine and a variety of essential vitamins which aids in relaxation and calm!

CBD Mint Strips

CBDfx Mint Strips: If you are looking for a booster that is convenient and  can assist with your day to day stress, look no further.Not only do theses mint strips get to work fast but they are incredibly discreet.  You can throw them  in a workout bag for exercise recovery after a workout, in a lunch sack to help deal with your daily stress, or they are small enough you can fit a five pack in your wallet to help anytime that you need a boost of CBD! We love these broad spectrum (0 THC) mint strips because you can take them wherever you need to go!

Water Soluble Tinctures

Water Soluble Tincture: We often forget about this option but it is a great and affordable option and you can increase or decrease serving size pretty simply. Just add a few drops or an entire dropper full depending on your milligram needs to any liquid and drink down. You’ll find it gets to work as quickly as the mints or gum.  Method Organics is an isolate ZERO THC option and Hemplucid is a full spectrum Product with .03%THC.

CBD Pre Rolls

Hemp Flower and Pre-Rolls: Flower can be added to a pipe or can be rolled in paper and smoked. Just light and puff on the hemp flower and inhale the smooth, tasty, hemp smoke. Once absorbed active substances in the smoke are rapidly dispersed throughout the body. It is the ideal consumption method for consumers that are already familiar with the process of smoking cannabis, or any consumer looking for a natural alternative to tobacco. We love both of our flower brand, Cannflower pre-rolls &  flower along with Method Organics pre-rolls. The flower companies we have chosen are committed to growing, processing and packaging domestically and both companies are committed to whole plant benefits. If you want to experience the full “Entourage Effect” you truly cannot get any closer to the whole plant than with hemp flower. The flower is free from pesticides, heavy metals and other toxic pollutants. The smokable CBD Flower is slow dried, hand trimmed and cured for 60 days, insuring a quality product and experience.

CBD Luxe Products

CBD Luxe Inhaler:  Not interested in flower or pre-rolls but wanting something that works in the respiratory system quickly.  Inhalers are your answer! CBD Luxe Inhalers are 1100 milligrams of Micell full spectrum hemp oil in each inhaler.  CBD Luxe inhalers come in a metered dose inhalers or (MDI) similar to the device used in asthma inhaler.  It is designed to give you the same serving size 5.5 mg per inhale every time. With this type of consistency, CBD Luxe inhalers can assist with promoting both wellness in mind and body.

When you use a  CBD Luxe inhaler,  you are taking the CBD and cannabinoids in through the pulmonary system making it one of the fastest acting methods available. The CBD Luxe inhaler is available in 4 great flavors and attributes. Each one has all the standard benefits of CBD including anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties
