My motivation to begin this company started with an interest in the science of hemp and natural plant based healing. I had heard of many people who had used CBD from hemp to ease pain, and always wondered if there was any truth to it. Once industrial hemp became legal to grow in the United States through the 2014 Agricultural Act, many hemp farmers began cultivation of the plant in Colorado and started to distill and isolate different chemical compounds within the plant as well as genetically enhancing the plant. The more I learned about what some of the different chemical compounds were commonly known for (sleep, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, pain relief, skin conditions) the more curious I became.
I started by experimenting with hemp distillates, a form of extraction to concentrate the plant down into a purer form. Distillates can be created with different extraction processes, of which the most common for hemp is C02 extraction. This method is clean and leaves no solvent residue and is usually used to make essential oils from plants (such as lavender or rosemary to name a few).
Soon however, I heard about a new process of isolating CBD from hemp oil into a pure, crystalline form called isolate. Isolate is odorless and more than 99% pure with all other parts of the plant removed. Intrigued, I decided to make some CBD salve using this form of hemp.
The results were amazing, and as I began to perfect the formula I realized I was on to something special. The purified form of CBD usually takes less than fifteen minutes to begin working. You can increase the absorption by using heat, either by soaking your affected area in warm water, taking a bath or hot shower or using a heating pad before applying either of the salves or the massage oil. Many people have told me that these products have made a huge difference in their quality of life.
I have found my products useful for the following conditions:
- Pain Relief – aches and pains, soreness, after workout muscle stiffness.
- Minor abrasions and scrapes.
- Rashes, skin irritation, itchy bug bites (works amazing!), eczema, dry skin, under eye puffiness, sunburn relief, skin inflammation.
I hope you will try my products – I think you’ll find the results amazing.
