Our belief whole plant cbd is that nature got it right the first time – the hemp plant is perfect, exactly the way it is, so there’s no need to waste any part of it, or strip anything from it. In fact, while it was previously believed that CBD isolates were more potent than whole-plant CBD, the 2015 study* below proved that whole-plant cannabidiol was far more effective in treating pain and inflammation than isolated CBD. Not only that, but the whole-plant CBD had better results at lower dosages than even higher doses of isolated CBD.

No psychoactive properties
Fact: Department of Agriculture Approved Industrial Hemp has no psychoactive properties.
Our whole-plant hemp CBD oil consists of the entire hemp plant including the root. There are 400+ beneficial chemical compounds found in the Hemp plant. More than 60 are cannabinoid elements. This includes hundreds of compounds like cannabidiol (CBD), secondary cannabinoids, terpenoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. All of these work together, in what is known as the “Entourage Effect”. It increases the beneficial properties of whole plant CBD. These properties include THC at a level so low that the plants is considered non psychoactive which means that the side effects associated with Marijuana hardly exist.
Hemp has been safely used for centuries
Fact: The Chinese have been using Hemp roots since the third millennium BCE. The root was juiced and used for its diuretic properties. The Romans boiled hemp root in water and drank the contents, believing it reduced joint stiffness and inflammation, as well as gout.
Plant medicine is nothing new. Modern herbalists recognize the healing power of plants. It lies in the interactions of all its various components. All of these compounds working together is called the “Entourage Effect,” a term first used by two Israeli scientists in 1998 to describe their findings. They showed that using the natural chemical compounds found in hemp, together, was more beneficial than isolating any single compound like CBD or THC.
CBD is certainly one of the most important compound. However,the hemp plant contains a host of other elements that work together within the Endocannabinoid System. This interaction helps many of our body natural processes such as sleep, digestion, hormone regulation, inflammation and more.
