Product Questions

So pure CBD won’t register on a standard drug test?

Routine drug tests don’t screen for CBD. Instead, they typically detect THC or one of its metabolites.

The person ordering the drug test could request to have CBD added to the list of substances being screened for. However, this is unlikely, especially in states where CBD is legal.

What are the different types of CBD?

CBD comes from cannabis, a family of plants. Cannabis plants contain hundreds of naturally occurring compounds, including:

  • cannabinoids
  • terpenes
  • flavonoids

Their chemical composition varies according to the plant strain and variety.

Although marijuana and hemp products are both derived from cannabis plants, they contain different levels of THC.

Marijuana plants typically contain THC in varying concentrations. The THC in marijuana is what produces the “high” associated with smoking or vaping weed.

In contrast, hemp-derived products are legally required to contain less than 0.3 percentTrusted Source THC content.

As a result, hemp-derived CBD is less likely to contain THC than marijuana-derived CBD.

Plant variety isn’t the only factor. Harvesting and refinement techniques can also change which compounds appear in CBD.

What is Full-spectrum CBD ?

Full-spectrum CBD extracts contain all of the compounds that occur naturally in the plant they were extracted from.

In other words, full-spectrum products include CBD alongside terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids such as THC.

Full-spectrum CBD products are typically extracted from the marijuana subspecies.

Full-spectrum marijuana-derived CBD oil may contain varying amounts of THC.

Full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil, on the other hand, is legally required to contain less than 0.3 percent THC.

Not all manufacturers disclose where their full-spectrum extracts come from, so it can be difficult to assess just how much THC may be present in a given product.

Full-spectrum CBD is widely available. Products range from oils, tinctures, and edibles, to topical creams and serums.

What is Broad-spectrum CBD ?

Like full-spectrum CBD products, broad-spectrum CBD products contain additional compounds found in the plant, including terpenes and other cannabinoids.

However, in the case of broad-spectrum CBD, all of the THC is removed.

Because of this, broad-spectrum CBD products are less likely to contain THC than full-spectrum CBD products.

This type of CBD is less widely available. It’s most often sold as an oil.

What is CBD isolate ?

CBD isolate is pure CBD. It doesn’t contain additional compounds from the plant it was extracted from.

CBD isolate typically comes from hemp plants. Hemp-based CBD isolates shouldn’t contain THC.

This type of CBD is sometimes sold as a crystalline powder or a small, solid “slab” that can be broken apart and eaten. It’s also available as an oil or tincture.

Does CBD help sleep and depression?

Up in the wee hours of the night, stuck watching videos of puppies? CBD may be promising as a sleep aid; one of the side effects of the Epidiolex trials for epilepsy was drowsiness, according to Mr. MacKillop, a co-author of a review on cannabinoids and sleep. “If you are looking for new treatments for sleep, that may be a clue,” he said.

Relief from Chronic Pain & Inflammation (Study)

People suffering from chronic pain resulting from fibromyalgia have experienced relief after using CBD oil. Using CBD oil has also been found to offer common pain relief and prevent the degeneration of the nervous system.

In Canada, it has been approved for the treatment of multiple sclerosis and cancer pain. According to the authors of a study, published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some mice and rats. The researchers suggested that CBD can provide a new treatment for chronic pain.

Chronic inflammation, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, leads to many non-infectious diseases like heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, and even autoimmune disease. Research shows that CBD can treat inflammation and in turn help alleviate these diseases. In short, CBD helps with pain relief.

Calms Epilepsy CBD Relief (Study)

CBD has been proven to have anti-seizure properties that can successfully treat children with drug-resistant types of neurological disorders like epilepsy.

In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, CBD showed a decrease in the frequency of seizures by 23 percentage points over those taking a placebo.

In fact, in June 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisors approved the prescription use of Epidiolex, a purified form of CBD oil, for treating two rare and severe forms of epilepsy in patients of the ages of 2 years and older. These two forms of epilepsy – Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) and Dravet Syndrome (DS) – generally don’t respond to anti-seizure medications.

Epidiolex happens to be the first FDA-approved drug that contains a purified form of a drug derived from marijuana. This drug reduces the seizures and sometimes stops them altogether. Remarkable visual proof of its effects on children suffering from “childhood epilepsy” is available on the internet for people to view.

On June 25, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, on behalf of the FDA, stated: “Today, the FDA approved a purified form of the drug cannabidiol (CBD)…The new product was approved to treat seizures associated with two rare, severe forms of epilepsy in patients two years of age and older.”

Research has also suggested that CBD can help treat complications arising from epilepsy, like neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric diseases.

CBD for Anxiety & Depression

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, depression affects 6% and anxiety affects 18% of the population in the US each year. Their research shows that CBD oil can help with both problems.

While doctors generally advise people suffering from chronic anxiety to avoid cannabis, since even traces of THC can trigger or increase anxiety and paranoia, authors of a review published in the journal Neurotherapeutics in 2015 derived that CBD, a non-psychoactive compound, can actually help reduce anxiety in people with certain anxiety-related behavioral disorders, such as:-

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • General anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Substance-abuse disorders

However, these conclusions were derived through experimental research, clinical trials, and epidemiological studies, and no human-based research is available at this point.

CBD has been seen to also reduce stress and discomfort associated with public speaking.

With regard to depression, CBD has been seen to reduce depression by enhancing both serotonergic and glutamate cortical signaling (both of which are lacking in people suffering from depression).

CBD to Reduce Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is a condition when the body has too many free radicals and antioxidants aren’t able to neutralize all of them. This is a comparatively recent problem these days, owing to the rising toxicity in our environment.

Two separate studies have shown that CBD oil has antioxidant and neuroprotective qualities that help in reducing neurological damage caused by free radicals.

CBD to Aid Treatment of Heart Ailments

Heart disease is also a growing problem across the world. In fact, it’s one of the leading causes of death in the United States. A healthy diet and lifestyle is a top priority for such people, but CBD oil can also help.

In a small study published in JCI Insight in 2017, researchers observed that CBD can help prevent blood-pressure fluctuations due to stress. In this study, nine healthy male volunteers were given a single dose of either CBD or placebo. Those treated with CBD had lower blood pressure, compared to those given a placebo, both before and after experiencing a stressful event.

According to researchers, cannabidiol helps by:

  • Reducing artery blockage
  • Reducing stress-induced cardiovascular response
  • Reducing blood pressure
  • Reducing cholesterol level

CBD oil helps prevent oxidative stress and inflammation, both of which are often precursors to heart diseases.

CBD Fights Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria

According to many experts, cannabinoids (including CBD) have an unusual ability to destroy bacteria (especially the drug-resistant strains). While more research is still needed to understand how and why it works, according to a 2011 study, CBD can slow down the progression of tuberculosis in rats. Researchers concluded that CBD likely does this by inhibiting T-cell proliferation, rather than possessing antibacterial properties.

Whatever may be the mechanism for destroying bacteria, CBD certainly seems to be a potent weapon against the newly emerging antibiotic-resistant “superbugs”.

Treat Type 1 Diabetes

We have already discussed how CBD oil helps combat inflammation. The same is true for when the immune system attacks the pancreatic cells, causing Type 1 Diabetes.

Research published in 2016 by Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation, a peer-reviewed international scientific journal, found that CBD may ease this inflammation in the pancreas.

Similarly, a paper presented the same year in Lisbon, Portugal, suggested that CBD can reduce the inflammation and protect against or even delay the development of Type 1 Diabetes.

Help with treating Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a serious and complicated mental illness that is typically managed through therapy and pharmaceutical drugs (that often have severe side effects). Whereas, many people have found CBD oil helpful in reducing hallucinations, minus the side effects.

According to the March 2015 review of research, CBD is a safe, effective, and well-tolerated treatment for psychosis. But more research is needed to bring CBD into clinical practice.

You must remember that THC, a psychoactive compound found in marijuana, can, in fact, increase psychosis among the affected individuals, while CBD only helps reduce it and may even counteract psychosis brought on by marijuana abuse.

Yet another study, published in Current Pharmaceutical Design, another peer-reviewed medical journal that covers issues related to pharmacology and medicinal chemistry, found that CBD has effects similar to those of certain antipsychotic drugs and that this compound is much safer and a more effective option for people with schizophrenia.

Treat skin conditions

Several studies have shown that CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions, like eczema, by encouraging abnormal cell death.

It also helps regulate the skin’s oil production, thus reducing acne. A 2014 study reported by the Journal of Clinical Investigation, a biomedical journal published by the American Society for Clinical Investigation, found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum, partly because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory property. Owing to these reasons, CBD could well become the future treatment for acne vulgaris, the most common form of acne.

It will be interesting to note that cannabidiol also contains certain nutrients like vitamin E that help nourish and protect the skin.

Fight addiction

CBD oil may help people with addiction overcome their withdrawal symptoms, suggested a review published in the journal Substance Abuse in 2015. In their report, they analyzed 14 previously published studies in which scientists determined that CBD may have a therapeutic effect on people with opioid, cocaine, and/or psycho-stimulant addiction.

They also found that CBD may help treat those with cannabis and tobacco addiction. Researchers have found evidence of CBD blocking or sometimes reducing THC’s effect on the mind.

A pilot study, published in Addictive Behaviors, found that smokers, who used inhalers containing CBD, smoked fewer cigarettes than usual. They also did not suffer from any withdrawal symptoms like cravings for nicotine.

A similar review, published in Neurotherapeutics, noted that CBD reduces symptoms associated with substance abuse, such as anxiety, mood-related symptoms, pain, and insomnia.

More research is necessary, but these findings definitely point to the possibility of CBD helping prevent or reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Fight certain types of Cancer

For people fighting cancer, CBD may provide them with a natural alternative for pain and symptom relief.

Although more research needs to be done on CBD’s role in treating cancer, whatever data is currently available looks promising.

According to the American Cancer Society, CBD oil can slow down the growth and spread of certain types of cancer (in animals), given that this psychoactive compound efficiently fights oxidative stress and inflammation.

According to a review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD can significantly help prevent the spread of cancer. The researchers noted that the compound tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction

Alzheimer’s Disease

CBD can prevent the development of social recognition deficit among patients, suggested research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. This means that CBD could help people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s retain their ability to recognize faces they know, and in turn slow the progression of the disease.


Microgreens

What is a microgreen?

Microgreens are young vegetable greens that are approximately 1–3 inches (2.5–7.5 cm) tall. They have an aromatic flavor and concentrated nutrient content and come in a variety of colors and textures. Microgreens are considered baby plants, falling somewhere between a sprout and baby green.

What makes microgreens so good for me?

Microgreens are packed with nutrients. ... Microgreens are also a great source of beneficial plant compounds like antioxidants. What's more, their nutrient content is concentrated, which means that they often contain higher vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels than the same quantity of mature greens.

How fast do microgreens grow?

These newly emerged crops are also very easy to grow. After all, most microgreens take about 2-3 days to germinate and roughly 7-14 days to be ready for harvest

What is plant medium?

A Proprietary organic blend of trees. paper and organic nutrients. 

Do you offer recipes for me to use the microgreens ?

Yes we will send out recipes from time to time. Keep in mind that this nutrient rich food should not be cooked because you will lose the nutrient value. Just place fresh on a sandwich or salad.

Can I grow microgreens anywhere?

Unlike most crops, microgreens can be grown almost anywhere, even during winter in northern climate zones. Because microgreens take so little space, it is practical, to grow them indoors when weather conditions don't permit outside growing.
