WHAT IS CBD OIL?
Botanical Oil Blend is brand new to the cannabinoid nutrition market, its ingredients selectively chosen to create a smooth tasting natural supplement packed full of the nutrients every body needs to maintain strong health.
By combining Germinated Hemp Seed Oil, Vitamin D3 and phytocannabinoids, Botanical Oil Blend offers a unique source of the essential fatty acids omega-3 and 6, vital for heart health, as well as high concentrates of Vitamin E and D, the nutrients needed for a strong immune system and to protect long-term brain function. Phytocannabinoids have been shown to balance hormones, eliminate joint pain and slow the aging process. This unique blend of nutrients makes Botanical Oil Blend an all-natural supplement powerhouse.
FIRST, SOME SCIENCE:
Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? Discovered in the late 1980s, ongoing research suggests it might be the most important system in the human body with a wide range of functions that regulate overall body health. Early research shows the endocannabinoid system could hold the key to the treatment of a wide range of diseases and pathological conditions ranging from mood and anxiety disorders, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, to cancer, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity/metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis, to name just a few.
Just like your immune system, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is made up of a complex network of cells spread throughout the body that communicate via chemical signaling. Receptors on the cell membranes interact with signaling molecules called endocannabinoids; think of the receptors as a lock and the endocannabinoids as the key. To date, two receptors have been identified: CB1 and CB2. Research has shown the phytocannabinoids found in hemp interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the same way as the endocannabinoids the body naturally produces, and the implications of this are huge for the possible treatment and prevention of disease.
WHY ARE PHYTOCANNABINOIDS IMPORTANT?
New research shows the ECS controls other systems in the body by turning chemical pathways on and off, by instructing cells to grow or change, by decreasing or releasing certain hormones, and instructing the immune system to release certain types of cells at a given time. There are a variety of signaling chemicals or endocannabinoids, but the best known are AEA and 2-AG. The phytocannabinoids found in cannabis oil mimic the body’s natural endocannabinoids: THC mimics AEA, and CBD mimics 2-AG.
Because of their unique ability to interact with ECS receptors in a way that mimics the body’s natural processes, taking a phytocannabinoid supplement supports homeostasis, a state of optimal health, with all systems working in harmony. Many diseases are caused by a homeostatic breakdown of one or more internal system. For example Type I diabetes mellitus occurs when the blood glucose homeostat stop working, meaning blood sugar levels rise due to lack of monitoring. Likewise, a breakdown in the plasma ionized calcium homeostat can weaken bones and lead to fractures.
Research into the potential uses of phytocannabinoids as treatment for various diseases is underway, and the results are compelling. Some research has shown that phytocannabinoids can interact with the ECS and alter the growth of cancer cells. Hemp oil has been shown as an effective treatment for epilepsy. Because of the high concentration of ECS receptors on the insulin producing cells in the pancreatic islets, phytocannabinoids could possibly be a breakthrough treatment for diabetes. It’s also been shown that phytocannabinoids interact with receptors in the immune system to reduce inflammation and migraine.
WHY COMBINE GERMINATED HEMP SEED OIL, VITAMIN D3 AND PHYTOCANNABINOIDS?
A number of reasons. The germination process activates the nutrients in hemp seed, turning them into an easily digestible form ensuring maximum absorption by the body. By infusing the oil with phytocannabinoids, its nutritional value basically goes through the roof. Thanks to the on going legalization of cannabis, research into the medical properties of this versatile plant is constantly expanding. New discoveries are being made every year and more clinical studies are being launched. What we do know is that the research done to date has brought to light key information about how the body’s molecular systems function, and how cannabinoids can be used to prevent and alleviate the symptoms of a widening range of conditions. As for Vitamin D, it’s only the most needed vitamin for maintaining healthy bones and teeth, and the one most people lack for either lifestyle or poor diet reasons. To make Botanical Oil Blend tastier, we reduced the percentage of terpenes, giving it a smoother flavor. By combining these three nutrients, Botanical Oil Blend takes cannabinoid nutrition next level by becoming a supplement powerhouse.
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO TAKE BOTANICAL OIL BLEND?
Just as every personality is individual, so too is every body, and finding the dosage that works for your body is a process of gradual acclimatization. Botanical Oil Blend works best when it becomes part of your daily routine, a supplement you can add to food, or take on its own at meal times. Everybody can benefit from taking this supplement especially those with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, MS or anxiety. There are no known allergies caused by hemp or cannabinoids, but there is a vast range of potential nutritional benefits. To begin with, we recommend a healthy adult take up to 2ml per day. For a person who is feeling run down, take up to 4ml per day. For more serious conditions, we urge you to speak with a qualified nutritionist or health professional depending on your needs. Botanical Oil Blend contains phytocannabinoid which is NOT psychoactive. You will not get high from taking this product.
