WHOLE PLANT IS BETTER
We believe in Whole Plant CBD because the whole flower is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s a powerhouse party and a unique combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids, proteins, enzymes and fatty acids are all present. Inflammation is a root cause for many diseases, it even creeps up on the most healthy people. CBD has properties that combat inflammation and for this reason we believe it is something that EVERYONE should add to their daily routine. Preventative care is just as important as treating ailments (although CBD helps with those as well). We are CBD believers not only because we have seen the positive impact first-hand, but because it speaks to our biological systems (the endocannabinoid system to be exact), which is why our bodies metabolize and repurpose this biomolecule in the way we can use it most. Sounds like a snake oil, but it’s a superfood with the incredible strength to adjust imbalances within the body.
The CBD Entourage Effect
As natural plant components interact with one another, and within the human body, they produce a stronger influence together than any one of those components could alone. Specific compounds will augment and magnify each other’s effects, making the overall plant infinitely more effective as a whole than in isolation. CBD in particular works in perfect balance with THC, amplifying the benefits while neutralizing its psychoactivity.
“Nothing does well in isolation which is why we have steered away from traditional CO2 extraction techniques”
Our unique whole plant extraction technique allows full inclusion of all vital compounds in their natural form and therefore preserves the integrity of the plant. 1 + 1 = 5. When the compounds of a plant are combined in their natural state, we don’t end up with the sum of the parts; we receive a multiplying effect. Think of it as the difference between taking an ascorbic vitamin c tablet and eating an orange: the overall difference in the available nutrient profiles is immense.
