New Product Education Videos!

August 9th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

One of the things we pride ourselves most in doing at Green Wellness Life is adding new, high-quality products to increase your choices as a customer!

However, we know that having such a wide range of options can be confusing, especially when you’re trying to tell the difference between products or learning how to use a new one. Sometimes the best way to learn this kind of information is to see it firsthand! That’s why we have a YouTube page dedicated to product education. Each of these videos is filmed by our wonderful founder and owner, Brandy Palmer, to help you put a face with the name.

If you have questions about how products look, taste, or function, then this page is the resource for you! Check out some of our most recent videos below.

All-in-One Adjustable Vape Pen

First, the All-in-One Adjustable Vape Pen is an amazing choice if you prefer vaping. Not only is it a high-quality product, but it can be used with every single e-liquid we have to offer, regardless of concentration or e-liquid base! However, with the adjustable voltage option and convenience of the product also comes a range of button-click combinations to hit the right setting for the right liquid.

Listen to Brandy explain these various settings in a quick and easy way, here:

Bluebird Botanicals

Another great product line we carry is the Bluebird Botanicals tinctures. This brand is a natural, organic option with a simple list of ingredients – no added flavoring or coloring! Within this product line, you have three main choices (with a variation in size and concentration):

  • Hemp Classic Oil
  • Hemp Complete Blend
  • Hemp Signature Blend

We believe that each option is an awesome one, but everyone’s individual needs are quite different, meaning that the right product for you might not be the same as the right product for someone else. That’s why we also offer a sample pack of each of these three options for you to try!

If you’d rather learn more about each first, Brandy’s here to help!

Plus CBD Oil Applicator

Our raw Plus CBD Oil is one of our more intimidating options, but it shouldn’t be! These applicators are surprisingly simple to use. Just turn the applicator until you here the right number of clicks, and the predetermined serving size is dispensed for you.

There are two of the raw oil applicators available – the Gold Formula and Total Plant Complex – both with the same easy applicator pen. If you want to learn more about the difference between the two or actually see and hear how the pen works, watch the video below!

Welcome to Green Wellness

February 21st, 2016 by Brandy Palmer

Brandelle PalmerHi there,

I expect that I am a lot like most of you reading this – I’m a wife and a mom. I’m busy working and raising my middle income family in a pretty conservative area in West Michigan. I have two kids (not the 2.4 that is the societal norm, but it’s pretty close) and a dog that likes to escape for walks with the labrador down the street. Oh, and I’m a hemp advocate.

Until about a year ago, I didn’t know much about hemp. Like many other people, the term “cannabis” just meant “weed” to me. Which, I smoked in college but hasn’t really been my thing for a while. I’ve been interested in a more natural and organic lifestyle for my family, assuming that it’s readily available and won’t cost us a billion dollars, but that’s about the extent of it. Then I took a part time Project Management position with a hemp company. Not because I was enthralled by the plant, but rather because I wanted to go part time to spend more time with those not quite 2.4 children. Once employed, I started to learn about the plant. And I fell in love.

Tinctures & EdiblesAs it turns out, cannabis is a plant genus that includes several species – including both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana and hemp are the same in the same way that miniature poodles and wolves are the same. You can cross breed them, but you wouldn’t really consider them the same creature. I’m not opposed to marijuana and I do believe it should be legalized, but my love affair is not with that plant. There are medicinal benefits to the THC that is naturally occurring in a high quantity in marijuana plants, but, the bulk of the medicinal benefit comes from another compound – CBD. CBD occurs in low amounts in marijuana and much higher amounts in hemp. Hence the love.

I’ve done lots of research and there are some really exciting studies into CBD. Studies showing shrinking tumors, reduced anxiety, lowered joint pain, seizure free children. Impressive, right? More than that, I’m hearing stories from people. I’m hearing “thank you” and “amazing!” and “miracle!” Pretty cool. Now, the FDA has not done all of their homework or given a stamp of approval on CBD. And I’m not a doctor. I don’t prescribe, treat, or cure anything. But I’m seeing that this works. And it’s helping people. I want to be part of that. And I hope you do, too.

Thanks for reading, friends. I’d love to hear your stories and questions so we can continue this journey together. We’ll talk more soon.

Picky Pups; CBD and our dogs

October 12th, 2018 by Brandy Palmer

Picky Pups

This is Molly my Great Dane. She is 3 years old and she is a Picky Pup. When I started working at Green Wellness Life, I quickly became aware of the health benefits CBD can have for our pets, both dogs and cats. CBD can neutralize health issues for our dogs in the same way that it can for humans. Anxiety and inflammation are the two that we hear most often, but there are lots of other benefits as well, especially for our aging furry companions (or non-furry companions like Brandy’s sphynx cats!)

How does CBD work in our Pets

When I learned that CBD works in our animals the same way it does humans, I decided to begin giving it to my pets.  That is right all 6 of my animals, three dogs and three cats (I am an animal lover and rescuer). It is amazing to me that both dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system that is almost identical to that of humans.  The Endocannabinoid system works the same way in our pets as it does in our body. It consists of a system of neurotransmitters that works to balance and maintain normal functions in the body. CBD works to manage the receptors in the central nervous system and helps to balance out symptoms that our pets are experiencing, bringing our furry friends back to normal in no time.

Back to (Cannabis) Basics

October 3rd, 2018 by Javed Pathan

This month we want to help our customers keep it simple… So we thought we’d take it back to the basics on cannabinoids.

Whether you call it reefer or ganja, grass or marijuana, Cannabis remains the most used drug globally. The chemical compounds that give cannabis it’s infamous and highly beneficial properties are referred to as Cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – is the most abundant and well-known cannabinoid with psychoactive properties that affects pleasure, concentration, memory, appetite, and perception. Inhaling or ingesting THC can affect areas of the brain associated with movement, sensations, visions, coordination, memory, reward, and judgment. Users often describe the high as a very mellow, euphoric, uplifting, and physically relaxing experience. Although it has been demonized since the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, THC in cannabis has recently been explored as a medicine, as research has shown its use highly beneficial for those with a variety of conditions and chronic pain. It’s also no secret that marijuana has helped patients undergoing chemotherapy regain their appetite. States with legal marijuana have also seen a decrease in opioid overdose and prescription rates, suggesting that patients would prefer to treat their pain with cannabis as opposed to opiates.

Cannabinoids – What Are They and How are They Relevant?

Cannabinoids are a natural occurring chemical compound unique to the Cannabis plant, Outside of THC, there are nearly 80 more. Here are just a few of those subclasses: Read the rest of this entry »


Farm Bill 2018: Bringing More Clarity About Hemp and Marijuana Differences

September 28th, 2018 by Javed Pathan

Hemp and Marijuana Differences

We’ve talked a bit about the Farm Bill and have urged you to get involved by reaching out to your local elected officials and asking them to help our farmers and our bodies by voting “yes” on hemp.  Here’s a brief overview on the Farm Bill as it pertains to hemp (this is a big fat bill with BOATLOADS of other non-hemp provisions)  and our progress to date.

Recently, the U.S. House and Senate introduced a new Farm Bill to build on the 2014 Farm Bill that brought a variety of programs to help agriculture and food policies. While the 2014 bill helped bring a pilot research program for hemp, the new bill is poised to make domestic hemp officially legal.

It’s been a long road for hemp farmers dealing with the ambiguities of U.S. legality. Will this finally bring more clarity to what hemp really is to avoid confusion with marijuana?

Let’s take a look at the bill’s major details to understand what it means. Read the rest of this entry »


Pharma Patents Are Making Room For Something New

September 21st, 2018 by Cara Oorbeck

Pharma Patents

New Patents Pending Could Impact Peoples Lives The Future

It is an exciting time to be in the hemp industry.  The stigma about hemp is lifting (finally!) and people all over, are learning and becoming more open to the incredible benefits of CBD and hemp-based products. All this new information and forward progress means more dollars for science.   Pharmaceutical companies are not going to be left behind. On June 25, 2018, the Food and Drug Administration approved the CBD-based drug Epidiolex for the treatment of epilepsy. Epidiolex, which will help treat epileptic symptoms in Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndrome in patients two or older, is just one example of many pharmaceutical interventions that use the power of CBD to create positive change in people’s lives.

Other Exciting Pending Pharmaceutical Patents for CBD

Some of these pending patents will hopefully be the beginning of life-changing science and CBD that will offer consumers a way to manage their pain, reduce symptoms, and improve their quality of life.

1. Kalytera: Pharmaceutical Solution for Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD)

Kalytera has two U.S. patents issued to use CBD to treat graft versus host disease (GVHD).

GVHD is a life-threatening complication that can take place after a bone marrow transplant. In GVHD, the cells of the transplant donor attack the recipients’ organs. There is currently no FDA-approved drug to treat or prevent GVHD. Because of this, GVHD can cause chronic illness, disability, organ failure, and death.  Kalytera hopes to harness the power of CBD to help treat and prevent GVHD in patients who undergo transplants. Though Kaytera’s drug is not available to the public yet, several trials have shown promising results. In one study, none of the patients taking their CBD-based solution developed acute GVHD. By day 100 of the study, the risk of developing GVHD was significantly decreased. In addition, patients treated with CBD experienced fewer gastrointestinal and skin issues.

2. KannaLife: CBD as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectors

Kannalife currently holds a patent for “Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectors.” As an antioxidant, CBD has been studied for its ability to reverse oxidation processes, which damage cells. And as for being neuroprotective, that means CBD has been studied for its ability to reduce damage to the brain and help grow new brain cells or neurons. KannaLife, which received attention for producing a patent for its “super-CBD” product, hopes to use CBD for its antioxidant and neuroprotective properties. Some of the diseases that KannaLife hopes to confront include Hepatic Encephalopathy (“HE”) and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (“CTE”). Both of these stress-related diseases affect behavioral and cognitive functions. To meet these ends, Kannalife hopes CBD’s antioxidant and neuroprotective features will help protect patients’ neural health and shield their brains from further damage. By helping to decrease inflammation, decrease issues following strokes, and protect the brain from autoimmune disorders, KannaLife aims to make a real change through CBD.

3. Zynerba’s topical ZYN002 gel: Control Symptoms of Fragile X Syndrome

The topical ZYN002 drug produced by Zynerba hopes to help with symptoms of neuropsychiatric disorders.

Fragile X Syndrome, for example, is a genetic condition associated with intellectual disability, increased anxiety, and mood disorders. This gel hopes to help treat those with Fragile X Syndrome by helping modulate their anxiety and mood, including hyperactive or compulsive behavior. Zynerba’s gel could also help with symptoms associated with Developmental and Epileptic Encephalopathies (DEE), which are rare brain disorders associated with seizures. Zynerba’s “permeation-enhanced” gel will be directly applied to the skin so it can bypass the digestive system entirely. Though it’s still in development, there’s a hope that this gel will produce positive changes for those with Fragile X syndrome.

4. INSYS Therapeutics: Cannabidiol Oral Solution for Prader-Willi Syndrome

Prader-Willi syndrome is a genetic condition that can cause delayed development, weak muscle tone, feeding difficulties, and poor growth. One of the most challenging symptoms is hyperphagia, which is another word to describe excessive hunger and overeating. This is the symptom that the Cannabidiol oral solution from INSYS hopes to treat. INSYS Therapeutics is another company with a patent for CBD pharmaceuticals. They’re developing a Cannabidiol Oral Solution aimed specifically to help children with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Studies are projected to start in September 2018 and end May 2020, and will assess kids aged 8 to 17.

One Thing In Common

Though these pharmaceutical companies have pending patents out for wide-ranging medical issues, they all have one thing in common: The use of CBD to help treat serious medical conditions. More and more companies are recognizing the potentially life-changing effects possible from the hemp plant.


Make Room for Something New by Cara Oorbeck!

September 14th, 2018 by Cara Oorbeck

Make Room

By Cara Oorbeck …Green Wellness Life Operations Guru

Summer is officially over in our house and so is our laid-back lifestyle. Or should I say my daughters’ laid-back lifestyle.  School started and we are making room in our life for MORE! More activities, more responsibilities, more obligations, and more stress.  Whew.  The other addition to our life is more routine. More routine and less freedom seems to help our family in making healthier decisions. Not only are we adding busyness to our life; but we are also adding some things that will help us to be more healthy. This is where Green Wellness Life is helping us! I am new around here…and definitely new to CBD.  I have been on staff a couple of months and I am learning and trying CBD in many forms for the first time. With that being said, I am excited about the health benefits my family and I are seeing!

Adding Something New…

These products are really impacting how we feel, how our skin looks and much more. One of these products is a full spectrum CBD tincture to my daily regimen.  I am trying Plus CBD 500 mg peppermint tincture. At first I did not think it was making a difference. I was Convinced (capital C) it was not doing anything. I took this product for over a month and then I stopped taking it for several days. It was at this point when I realized it had changed how I was feeling. My old shoulder injury wasn’t aching all day long. My knees were not as sore every day and I was sleeping more soundly most nights. In fact, I was able to stop taking my nightly sleep prescription medications completely.   I know that CBD affects people differently…our bodies all react differently and so not everyone will experience the same things I do with CBD but for me it has been really exciting.

It Takes Time…

Seeing the benefits of CBD takes time. The change for me was not immediate and it was not drastic. It started to slowly impact me in a very positive way. If you’re not taking CBD daily this may be something you want to think about making room for. In what ways are you getting your CBD daily? Some of us take CBD every day for its daily benefits including combatting pain, alleviating inflammation, reducing anxiety, mood stabilization, regulating sleep patterns, ADHD/mind clarity, and balancing the different branches of our immune system.  If you want more info on the different ways CBD can affect different conditions, take a peek at projectcbd.org.  While they are medical marijuana proponents (versus hemp), they have a boatload of great research on CBD.

So Many Benefits…

CBD has so many benefits and can add to our lives and our health. Why not give it a try?! If taking a tincture (liquid oil taken under your tongue) or a daily cbd capsules seems overwhelming, don’t hesitate to call us in the office or chat with us online.  We love to walk with you and explore new options for your lifestyle and your specific needs.

I am so excited to share more of the products I have been adding to my life this month as we discuss making room!  They are making a real difference to us!  Check in and see all the cool things we are talking about.  You may decide to add a little something cool yourself.

Please feel free to comment and ask about a specific product and we’ll try to talk about your needs and questions in our blogs!

Make Room for Something New!

September 7th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

something new

At Green Wellness Life, we’re about much more than just the benefits of CBD. Our goal is to help you live well in a holistic way. That’s why this week we’re focusing on helping you try something new on your path toward more natural living – and we’re offering you a discount to get started! From September 7 through September 14, 2018, you can use the coupon code “Natural9” for nine percent off your order!

Start Where You Are

The MindBodyGreen wellness blog recommends starting with a realistic, personal assessment of your health. Without judgment, take the time to really feel what it feels like to be in your body and listen to what it needs. Meditation can be a great way to do this! Scan your body from head to toe to see what feels great and healthy and what could use some work or healing. The same article gives some great instruction on focused breathing to find that connection with yourself if you’ve never tried meditation before. Knowing what you need is the first step in searching for what can help. It’s important to start this process through the lens of kindness toward yourself, not viewing your health as a problem to be solved, but rather loving your whole person and wanting to nourish and care for it!

Knowledge is Power

Educate yourself! Separate fact from fiction before you incorporate new things – or instead remove old, unwanted elements – into your life. That’s something we value to a great extent at Green Wellness Life, which is why all of our products are lab tested, and we’re always here to answer any question or concern you have. No question is too small or too silly, and if we don’t know the answer already, we’ll take the time to discover it for you!

We’re also committed to transparency in making all of our lab results available upon request and ensuring that our products are described and labeled clearly and accurately. We want you to have to do the least amount of work to understand and trust what you’re purchasing. You’re the reason we’re here, so we’re here for you!

Swap Out Your Skincare Products

When we think about incorporating more natural options in our lives, we correctly identify food and household chemicals as key items to replace. Our food sustains our lives, so it’s important to eat nutritious food to live to our best and fullest extent. Household chemicals are just that – chemicals, which present a tradeoff between cleaning harmful bacteria and potentially harmful ingredients in the products themselves. However, our skin absorbs so much of what we put on it, and many of these products stay there all day. That’s why skincare is often a great place to start if you’re looking to take small, impactful steps toward a more natural way of living.

We’re proud to offer a four-step skincare set from Abinoid Botanicals, which includes a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. This set is not only free from harmful dyes or fragrances, but it will actually benefit your skin throughout the day with CBD, gentle oils and herbs, and other natural ingredients! The newest member of this set, the Abinoid Botanicals CBD Face & Body Moisturizer, is an all-over product, to nourish you from head to toe!

__________

If you’re looking to incorporate CBD into your path toward natural living in any way, make sure you use this week’s coupon code to get started at a discount! The coupon code “Natural9” is good for nine percent off your total order, and the offer is good from September 7 to September 14, 2018.

 

Note: Always consult a medical doctor before modifying your diet or using any new product. As with all products on Green Wellness Life, this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.These statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration (FDA).


De-Stress with CBD this School Season

August 31st, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

It’s that time of year again: back-to-school season! Whether you’re a student yourself – or a teacher! – or you have children heading back to school, it can be a stressful time. This week we’re featuring a few products to help you de-stress and focus as you get settled into the school year.

Green Roads Coffee & Tea

With these new, infused products, you can now start and end your day with the benefits of CBD! The Gourmet CBD Coffee is a unique way to incorporate CBD into your diet while getting a boost of caffeine and focus in your busy schedule. If you follow the recommended serving size, you will end up with just over 15 mg CBD per pot.

If you’d rather try CBD to help you unwind at the end of the day, consider the Chamomile CBD Tea instead! Chamomile tea is already known for helping you relax, unwind, and de-stress at the end of the day. These pre-packaged tea bags are easy to prepare, and a great way to give CBD a try without changing your daily routine.

Select CBD Tinctures & Vape Pens

If you’re not a fan of tea, another way to de-stress is to try a tincture with additional relaxing effects. The Select CBD Lavender Tincture even has chamomile in it, not to mention lavender essential oil, like the flavor description suggests! The Select CBD brand is flavored with essential oils and other natural herbs, meaning that their products don’t just taste great, but they gain additional benefits from the flavoring ingredients. It’s a win-win scenario! Select CBD also offers a Lavender Vape Pen for an additional way to relax.

Luckily, Select CBD also has products that can help you focus, too! Peppermint and spearmint are both flavors and scents known for their energizing effects, which can be a great way to wake up your brain when you’ve hit that mid-day slump. A Peppermint Tincture or a Spearmint Vape Pen might be the right option for you if you’re looking for focus and clarity, rather than just relaxation.

If you want to combine the benefits of a tincture and vape pen, we also offer discounted sets with the flavors of your choice. Mix and match the flavors you enjoy or the benefits you’re looking for!

MedCBDX Mints & Panacea F.A.S.T Tablets

Another hallmark of the busy school season is having very little time for much-needed self care. That’s why we offer fast-acting products that help you start seeing the benefits of CBD right away. Products like MedCBDX’s mints  and Panacea’s F.A.S.T Tablets are more bio available than a traditional capsule. That’s just a fancy way of saying that your body can more quickly and easily absorb the cannabinoids because absorption starts right in the buccal cavity of your mouth. Both have a light, enjoyable flavor and can easily just be popped into your mouth like a traditional breath mint. No muss, no fuss, and all the benefits of CBD in a quick and easy option for your busy day!

__________

Good luck to all students and teachers out there.
We wish you the best of luck for the upcoming school year!

Spoil Your Pet (And Yourself) on National Dog Day!

August 24th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

national dog day

To celebrate National Dog Day this Sunday, August 26, 2018, we have a special treat for both you and your best friend! Just for this week, our People & Pets kits are an additional $5 off their already discounted price as a set. We offer these joint sets in some of our favorite brands – Tasty Hemp Oil, Select CBD and Panacea.

Check them out by clicking on the photos below!

Panacea CBD Softgels

If you’re looking to really celebrate National Dog Day, here are just a few great ways – besides treating your pet to the benefits of CBD – from the official National Dog Day website itself!

Adopt a Four-Legged Friend

There are so many pets in need in shelters all around the country waiting for their forever home. In fact, over 3 million dogs enter the shelter system each year. Luckily, many of these are adopted, but not all, meaning that millions of animals remain in shelters. If you’re not able to adopt another animal into your family, that doesn’t mean you can’t help! Support your local animal shelter with donations of money or supplies – every little bit helps. Having more resources also means that shelters can spend more of their time looking for that perfect home for every animal in need.

Take and Share Photos of Your Doggo

According to an article in The Guardian, dogs have begun gaining on cats as the most popular pets on the internet. Help maintain that trend by posting photos of your own canine companion! Some dogs even have their own social media pages to track their hilarious and adorable daily antics. Think your dog is social-media worthy? Start a profile of their own! Who knows if they’ll go viral, but it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll have fun putting your pet in the spotlight they deserve.

Tell Your Representatives What Animals Mean to You

We sometimes forget that legal protections for animals aren’t set in stone; legislators need to know that this is an issue their constituents care about for them to make it a priority in their tenure! Typically, animal cruelty cases don’t make the news unless they are extremely heinous, but unfortunately animal abuses happen on many levels in our own communities. As pet lovers, we know that there’s enough room in our hearts to not only care about the ones close to us, but animals all around the country. If this is a cause you’re passionate about, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has some great tips for reaching out to your legislators to help them understand the importance of this issue.

Pet-Proof Your Home

There’s never a bad time to make sure that your home is as safe as it can be for your pets. Because we’re used to viewing our living space on our level, we often forget about hazards that are closer to the ground or things that may be safe for humans, but not for pets. These items can include anything from common house plants to buttons and strings on clothing in the dirty laundry. American Humane has a thorough list to help you keep your home safe and healthy for everyone that lives there – including both dogs and cats!

Have a Play Date with Your Pet!

This one is simple and doesn’t have to cost a thing. Just spend time with your dog! Cuddles and playtime are great for the overall mental and physical health of both people and pets. If you’re feeling generous, you can even splurge on a special toy for your dog. If that’s not something that fits in the budget, just spending time with your pet will remind them how much they’re loved!


Why Choose a Hemp-Derived CBD Tincture?

August 16th, 2018 by Emma Tuthill

cbd isolate

Our goal at Green Wellness Life is in our name – helping you live well in a holistic way. We believe that CBD can be a helpful part of this process, helping to bring your body back into balance.

One of the things that makes us unique is that we’re not a brand like most other businesses that sell CBD. Instead, we carry several of the best brands in the industry! We select the products we carry carefully. Everything we carry has been lab tested and sourced in a federally-legal way from industrial hemp. Having a variety of great brands to choose from also means getting to choose from a multitude of ways to incorporate CBD into your daily routine – from capsules to skincare products to e-liquids for vaping. You can even treat your pet to the benefits of CBD with supplements formulated specifically for them!

The Top Three Benefits of CBD Tinctures

Because we offer so many great products, we’re also committed to educating our customers, helping you find the product that works the best for you and your unique endocannabinoid system. Today, we’re focusing on one of our most popular types of products: CBD tinctures.

Fast Absorption

cbd tincture fast absorption

If you already incorporate dietary supplements into your life, you may be used to taking them in capsule or softgel form. While a convenient option, digestion of capsules can slow down their efficacy. That’s where tinctures come in. As a liquid supplement, tinctures have the flexibility to speed up that process, helping the CBD absorb more quickly. Typically, tinctures should be held under the tongue for around 30 seconds, so absorption starts right in the buccal cavity, before swallowing the supplement and going about your day. To make this process simple and easy, our tinctures include a dropper applicator to easily drop the recommended serving size directly under your tongue!

Simple Ingredients

At Green Wellness Life, we’re whole plant advocates. We believe that providing you with the best products available means options that include the least amount of processing and fewest added ingredients. Our raw oil extracts are the closest option to the hemp plant itself; however, this type of product can be intimidating for most CBD consumers.

Tinctures are the next best option if you’re looking to stay close to the raw extract, but need something that’s a little easier to take! Most tinctures include a CBD extract in a base oil that makes it easy to consume and is gentle on your digestive system, too. Typically, the base oils in tinctures are a fractionated MCT coconut oil, like Charlotte’s Web tinctures we carry – one of the best known brands in the CBD industry! Others stick to the basics, using hemp oil as the base for the hemp-derived CBD. We carry a great option if you’re looking for this most natural, raw kind of tincture – Endoca.

Great Flavor Options

cbd tincture flavoring

If you want the benefits of a tincture but aren’t interested in the earthy, grassy flavor that comes with unflavored tinctures, you’re in luck. Another aspect of the flexibility of tinctures is their ability to be mixed with a variety of flavor options. Tasty Hemp Oil includes a raw base with safe, food-grade flavoring to make the supplement enjoyable to take.

Even beyond being a tasty way to consume CBD, the flavor profile in some tinctures can actually be beneficial, too! Take Select CBD, for example. This line of CBD tinctures is flavored with essential oils, which have benefits in their own rights, like turmeric in the Lemon Ginger drops or lavender in the Lavender drops.

__________

These are just a few of the reasons that CBD tinctures are a great choice for everyone looking to try CBD – from beginners to those familiar with CBD and its benefits. At Green Wellness Life, we’re happy to offer tinctures in a variety of concentrations, ingredients, and price points.

To make incorporating CBD into your lifestyle even more affordable, we regularly offer discounts and promotions on our weekly blog, in addition to our Green Rewards Program! Members of our Green Rewards Program earn one point for every one dollar spent, which turns back into discounts off your future orders. Our system automatically tracks your points as long as you’re logged in, and you can use them to reap big rewards in our store!

We’re proud of the CBD we carry and the discounts we offer to make these brands affordable to everyone. One of our biggest points of pride, however, is our customer service. We’d love to hear from you, and no question or concern is too small! You can reach us at 888-772-7875 or support@greenwellnesslife.com to learn more about what we have to offer.
