When nothing else has worked, completely legal and non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) from the hemp plant has been found by many people to relieve a wide range of symptoms, both physical and mental. “Non-psychoactive” means that no “high” is produced, and CBD has also been found to have an anti-anxiety effect. Our new CBD-infused lotion is absorbed through the skin for localized relief from pain, tension, muscle ache and inflammation, as well as full-body, palliative care. Athletes have been exploring the use of CBD-infused topicals for some time because they offer physical relief without the dangerous side effects of prescription painkillers, and don’t interfere with performance since CBD is non-psychoactive.
CBD from A to Z
Derived from the hemp plant in accordance with FDA regulations and legal in all 50 states, CBD is cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound. It is an established scientific fact that CBD and other components of cannabis can modulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body. The discovery of receptors in the brain that respond pharmacologically to CBD and other cannabis compounds—and the subsequent identification of cannabinoid compounds that occur naturally in our own bodies—has significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health and disease. CBD has a wide variety of therapeutic applications ranging from the relief and arrest of physical symptoms to the alleviation of mental ailments. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities. Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of various difficult-to-control conditions, including arthritis, epilepsy, seizures, headaches, inflammation, back pain, chronic pain, spasms, nausea, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, PTSD, stress and many others.
Our CBD-infused topical is absorbed through the skin to provide localized relief of pain, tension, muscle ache and inflammation. Additionally, because CBD is also circulated throughout the body by the endocannabinoid system, it can relieve and control a wide range of symptoms. Critical to the regulation of many important physiological pathways in the human body, our endocannabinoid system is primarily linked to our immune and nervous systems.
CBD mainly activates the endocannabinoid system’s CB2 receptors, which are predominant in the peripheral nervous system and the immune system.
Research on the effects of marijuana in the late 1980s and early 1990s, led directly to the discovery of a previously unknown biochemical communication system in the human body— the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response.
Hemp and marijuana are both members of the same plant species, Cannabis sativa L.
“Hemp,” which is as close as you can get to how cannabis grows naturally, is the term used to describe the non-psychoactive food and fiber variety of the cannabis plant, and “marijuana” is cannabis that’s grown to enhance the chemicals that make you feel high or stoned.
CBD hemp oil products have been available on the mainstream market for a several years now. A key difference between hemp and marijuana is that hemp is non-psychoactive and naturally has only trace amounts THC. Its flowers must contain just 0.3% THC — which is 33 times less than the least potent marijuana.
The cultivars used for CBD oil contain significantly higher concentrations of CBD than other varieties of hemp. Using these uniquely potent plants, it is possible to extract cannabis oil that contains significant levels of cannabidiol, as well as essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
The high-CBD hemp oil used in Natural Findings Complete Topical Formula is a commercial hemp product and can be sold and delivered legally to all 50 states. Natural Findings follows proper safety protocol to double check for degradation, damage, or contamination in our oil, ensuring you receive only safe, reliable CBD hemp oil products.
Keep in mind that the hemp seeds or organic hemp oil you commonly find in grocery stores is a great nutritional supplement, containing many vitamins and minerals and other healthy constituents, but it does not contain cannabidiol (CBD).
How about the other ingredients?
Natural Findings Complete Topical Formula also contains organic aloe vera, RO water, sea buckthorn oil, MSM, a proprietary blend of therapeutic essential oils, wildcrafted medicinal herbs, nutraceutical botanical extracts, carbomer, detoxified iodine, complex vitamins and more than 87 minerals, and super antioxidants. These ingredients facilitate and enhance the therapeutic qualities of the lotion, as well as soothe the skin and relieve tired, sore muscles.
What does all this mean for your pain and your health?
CBD and other cannabis compounds are unique, natural medicines that tap into how we work biologically on a very deep level. The existence of phytocannabinoids in cannabis plants and naturally occurring endocannabinoids in our bodies (as well as receptor sites specifically designed to accept just them), suggests the possibility of a complex historical relationship between mankind and cannabis. Much research remains to be done, but what is known is that phytocannabinoids and specifically cannabidiol (CBD) will stimulate our own endocannabinoid system providing a variety of healing benefits.
