Derek Thomas, VP of Business Development at Veritas Farms, takes a dive into what CBD is, how it works, and the benefits that can be found with its use.Veritas Farms is made with organic and natural ingredients – so when you use one of our products, you can be sure it’s loaded with all the good stuff from the hemp plant.
The hemp plant has something for everyone. It may help provide a sense of calm from everyday stress, balance your body, improve your sleep quality, or even boost your workout. Interestingly, hemp plant benefits are much greater when their cannabidiol specific molecules stay combined with the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes as well.
We now have the technology to explore new parts of the hemp plant – various molecules called cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN and CBC. And we’ve mapped out how these molecules are absorbed in our bodies, via the Endo-Cannabinoid System or ECS. The ECS is a group of neurological receptors found throughout the body that regulate and support a wide variety of bodily functions including mood, appetite, stress, reproductive function, sleep, metabolism and immune function. The ECS provides balance, or homeostasis, to the body by regulating all of those functions.
These cannabinoids from hemp, known as phytocannabinoids (or plant-based cannabinoids) are adsorbed into the endo-cannabinoid system, along with other helpful compounds like terpenes and flavonoids, to create “The Entourage Effect”. The Entourage Effect is the synergistic amplification of the benefits when all of the compounds are present together.
Only full spectrum hemp products can deliver the full benefits of the entourage effect.
At Veritas Farms, we’re experts on growing hemp plants and extracting the full spectrum hemp oil out of them. Our oil is packed with cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, and we make it with great consideration to our local and global ecosystem. We take quality, transparency, and efficacy very seriously. That’s why we provide independent ISO Certified laboratory reports on all of our products. We not only test the strength of our cannabinoids and terpenes, but also test for the presence of any heavy metals, pesticides, bio-contaminates, and solvents.
For those looking for more mood, rest, and full body balance, we often suggest newcomers consider tinctures or capsules in a lower to medium strength. 250mg and 500mg tinctures as well as 10mg capsules are a great place to start. Monitor how you feel, and after a week or so, you may decide to increase to a stronger strength.
For those looking to directly target a problem area on their body, lotions and salves both provide great results! Lotions are water based and are great for moisturizing and rejuvenating your skin, whereas our oil-based salves are designed for deep penetrating relief.
There’s a reason Veritas Farms is trusted by retailers and consumers alike. We’re dedicated to providing you the highest quality hemp oil right from the farm. Try us today and experience the amazing benefits for yourself.
