Key Ingredients

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabinoids are complex chemical compounds that act on receptors in cells. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid (meaning you will not feel “stoned” when consuming it) produced by both the hemp and marijuana plant. Both hemp and marijuana are genus of cannabis sativa, but with varying differences.

  • Marijuana typically grows with higher percentages of THC (psychoactive), and lower percentages of CBD (non-psychoactive).
  • Hemp grows with higher percentages of CBD, and lower percentages of THC.

Terpenes

The minuscule glands of the hemp plant that excrete cannabinoids also produce terpenes, which are what gives both hemp and marijuana their distinct aromas. Terpenes are not exclusive to the cannabis sativa plant, and can be found throughout nature. In addition to providing these pungent aromas, terpenes are also therapeutic in nature. As an example, alpha and beta-pinene (found in pine needles and rosemary) have analgesicanti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. L and D-Limonene (found in lemon rinds and juniper) have anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic effects.

We add CBD, terpenes (and plant extracts) at very specific concentrations to our product lines because CBD and terpenes work synergistically together, creating an “entourage effect“. Independently, both terpenes and CBD work well, but together, they are far more potent and effective. Listed below are examples of the various plant extracts and terpenes included in our proprietary blends, as well as their associated therapeutic benefits.

All ingredients are added with precision and intention.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text]

Beta Caryophyllene (BCP)

BCP is a dietary cannabinoid  that binds with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), yet it presents itself as a terpene. We use BCP in all of our products, as it works synergistically with CBD to enhance its effects within the human body. CBD barely binds with the CB2 receptors, and not at all with CB1, however it does facilitate the binding of other molecules, such as THC (CB1) or Beta Caryophyllene (CB2). This means that we experience longer, and more effective periods of anti-inflammation when BCP is paired with CBD.  Found naturally in black pepper and cloves, BCP has also shown promise in treating anxiety, stress, as well as other behavioral and mood disorders, and it has even shown to negate paranoia from over consumption of THC.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4246″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

alpha-Pinene

One of the two isomers of pinene, alpha-pinene can be found in a myriad of plants, such as rosemary, basil, but most notably pine trees. Studies have found alpha-pinene to be an anti-inflammatory and an antibiotic. It has also been shown to increase alertness, and has historically worked well as a bronchodilator. This highly beneficial, and pivotal terpene is included in nearly all of our proprietary terpene blends.

d-Limonene

This citrus-smelling terpene is relatively stable, and the most common of the limonene isomers. It’s therapeutic properties range from anti-inflammation, anti-anxiety, and antifungal. Limonene also assists in the absorption of other terpenes, which is why it is included in all of our topical terpene blends, as well as many of our other products.

beta-Myrcene

This monoterpene is commonly found in mangos and hops, and is an analgesic with sedative properties. A powerful anti-inflammatory, and highly effective in decreasing the sensation of pain, yet myrcene has no known neurobehavioral effects.

beta-Linalool

This optical isomer is most commonly found in lavender and jasmine, and offers a mild, unoffensive floral scent. Linalool has been used as a calmative for thousands of years, due to its anxiolytic and sedative properties, but it is also imperative to the production of vitamin-E within the body.

MCT Oil

MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil is a form of saturated fatty acid that has been associated with various health benefits, such as long-lasting, improved cognition, increased energy metabolismweight management , and increased satiety. It is used in several of our products to include our sublingual drops, oral drops for both cats and dogs, and our vaporizer oils.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4260″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Tea Tree Oil

A volatile essential oil with a camphorous scent, tea tree oil is well-known for its powerful antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. As such, we include tea tree oil in all of our topicals to assist with various skin conditions related to bacteria and inflammation.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4253″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Vitamin E

Vitamin E sourced from non-GMO soy is used in all of our pufCBD remedies. It is anti-inflammatory, a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant, and essential for normal neurological function.

Valerian Root

Valerian root is a perennial flowering plant, and has been used as a medicinal herb since ancient Greece and Rome. Studies have shown it increases he amount of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain, which helps regulate nerve cells, resulting in a calming effect. As such, we use valerian root in our Calming products to reduce stress levels and anxiety, and to assist with insomnia.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4258″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Green Tea Extract

Green tea extract is an antioxidant, which has also been shown to reduce damage from free radicals. Additionally, amino acids within green tea have been shown to improve learning and memory capabilities.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”7323″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Shea Butter

Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. It is often used in cosmetics due to its emollient properties, but is also a known anti-inflammatory. Shea butter is one of the primary ingredients in the base of all our topicals.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”7324″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Capsaicin

Capsaicin is an active ingredient in chili peppers, responsible for the sense of “hotness”. It is often used in topical ointments as an analgesic for both muscle and joint pain, and is used in nearly all of our topicals.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”7325″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Menthol

Menthol is a crystalline substance made from corn mint, peppermint, or other mint oils. It is used often in topical analgesics for pain, but also as a penetration enhancer. Menthol is used in nearly all of our topicals.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
