Why CBD?

Have you heard of CBD or considered using it as a supplement for health purposes? I started researching it, and after using it myself, decided to start carrying in our online store. It's been amazing!!! I have been sleeping better, have increased focus which is great since I'm going to school, and my anxious feelings have been minimal.

You may have already heard of Charlotte's Web. Charlotte's Web was developed by Colorado breeders, the Stanley Brothers with less than 0.3% THC (the federal legal limit), for a little girl to help with her seizures. It has had an amazing effect on so many who suffer from a wide variety of seizures and seizure activity.

The CBD we carry is obtained via CO2 extraction. That basically means there are no solvents such as hexane or benzene used to extract the hemp oil from the plant. So, none of that is left behind which can cause an issue or reaction for you. "This product comes from the whole plant, giving you all the wonderful cannabinoids and the "entourage effect". (2)

"The “entourage effect” phenomenon happens when hundreds of natural components within a plant work together with the human body to produce a stronger effect than any one of those components used alone could. It’s considered a synergistic effect by nature. If you were to combine multiple compounds in their natural state, we wouldn't necessarily end up with the sum of the parts; we may get a multiplying effect instead. With the entourage effect, the different compounds can amplify each other’s effects, making the whole plant more effective in treating unwanted physical, emotional or mental symptoms." (1)


"Cannabidiol, the second most common cannabinoid in cannabis, is the non-psychoactive compound with many medicinal qualities. It has been shown in scientific studies to have potent anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, anti-spasmodic (stops spasms) and anti-emetic effects (stops vomiting) along with anti-convulsant properties. It also has been shown to inhibit tumor cell growth." (2)

The Endocannabinoid System

"CBD, CBN and THC fit like a lock and key into existing receptors. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system which impact psychological processes affecting pain modulation and appetite. It also effects anti-inflammatory and other immune system responses. The endocannabinoid system comprised two types of receptors CB1 and CB2 which serve distinct functions in our health and well-being." (2)

"CB1 receptors are found primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and to a lesser extent other tissues." (2)

"CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs especially cells associated with the immune system." ( 2)

"Our bodies have areas that are made specificity for these endocannabinoids - they are called cannabinoid receptor sites. These sites make up the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for numerous physiological and mental processes that occur naturally within the body. This system includes a number of specialized cell receptors in the brain and various other organs throughout the body. It is also closely interconnected with the nervous and immune systems. Since CBD has been shown to boost just about every function in our cannabinoid receptors, studies show promise for it to have far-reaching soothing and relaxing effects." (2)

Cannabidiol - CBD is a compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make you feel "high" or "stoned". The fact that CBD rich cannabis is non-psychoactive makes it an appealing option for people looking to help with many physical issues, which include and so much more: (2)

​CBD is non-habit forming and works best as a dietary supplement taken daily. Your daily usage will be based on your weight and severity of symptoms.

We carry Patriot Botanicals brand made from industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa), which is 25mg per ml. Since there are about 20 drops per ml, each drop would be about 1.25 mg. To learn more or purchase your own 15ml bottle, visit our website or if you have any questions, please email me at As always, do your own research too. There are a LOT of CBD companies out there that charge very little for their products. Make sure you know what you are getting. I have a bottle here that is 1.33mg per ml, it does nothing for me and tastes horrible. As with any product, all CBD is not created equal. Have a blessed day!

Love and light, Melissa
