The cannabis plant is very effective medicinally and has been used for about 6000 years for a variety of uses! Cannabidiol is one phytocannabinoid out of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. While CBD was discovered more than 20 years before THC in 1940, THC has dominated cannabis research until recently. The scientific community is finding many benefits of supplying the body with these phytocannabinoids, namely – CBD. Personally, I have witnessed a clients child experiencing 100 seizures a day go to absolutely none. I have seen pain and issues related to Crohn’s Disease cease and clients begin their healing process. I have had the privilege of experiencing clients with severe anxiety feel calmness from hemp oil within minutes. Many of these instances of relief occur right before my eyes. If you or anyone you know has an issue with anxiety, inflammation, or any other ailments listed below, please don’t wait another second to try this oil. We are beyond happy to provide a sample so you can feel the medicinal effects of the hemp plant.
There are many claims about this Cannabinoids and the medicinal effects. So here are some facts with studies to back them from the NIH, (National Institute of Health)
Benefits from CBD Oil have been seen with the following:
Pain Crohn’s Disease Insomnia Headaches Digestive issues ANXIETY PTSD Seizures
Multiple Sclerosis Parkinson’s Disease Inflammatory Disease Cancer Depression Neuralgia Alcoholism
Uterine and Excessive Menstrual Bleeding Gout Opiate Addiction Convulsive Disorders Sinus Issues Diabetes And MUCH MORE…
The Following is a Blog Post from DaCrema Botanicals explaining CBD and the importance of using a Therapeutic Quality CBD
CBD concentrate is a term that refers to a wide range of plant extracted or synthesized compounds that contain a high concentration of cannabidiol, or CBD, which is a resin—a cannabinoid— produced by the hemp plant or the marijuana plant. These concentrates generally range from about 15% to about 99% in purity and are considered “raw CBD”, from which many products can be made. But within the umbrella of CBD concentrates there are many variables. This leads to many choices for the consumer, healthcare practitioner, and industry alike, so please remember these words: “not all CBD is created equal”.
What makes a CBD concentrate “therapeutic quality” in the first place?
Here at DaCrema Botanicals, we have a certain criterion that we feel are critically important to being called therapeutic grade CBD. We start with CBD concentrate that is derived from hemp, not marijuana. All of our hemp was specifically grown to extract therapeutic grade CBD from the start. This insures a high-quality product that is both safe and legal, and free of THC. We learn about the purity of the CBD by examining its certificate of analysis. A certificate of analysis
(C of A) is an official document coming from a third-party tester indicating the levels of certain chemicals. We keep all C of A’s for every CBD concentrate batch that we buy. For us, every C of A must test for at least four categories of chemicals: cannabinoids, solvents, heavy metals, and pesticides. Often, C of A’s also contain a category for its terpene profile. A terpene is an essential oil associated with the plant.
All of our CBD must be solvent, heavy metal, and pesticide free.
Why? Because solvents and metals are neurotoxic, and pesticides can be harmful to those whose immune systems are compromised. In addition, we only use CBD concentrates that are free of THC (< 0.3%), because of ethical and legal reasons. In addition, all of our CBD comes in a bioavailable form, called “de-carboxolized”, which refers to the removal of an acid group from the molecule in order to more effectively interact with our bodies. Many CBD concentrates are processed using hydrocarbon solvents like hexane. In addition, many imported CBD concentrates contain heavy metals, taken up by the plant growing in contaminated fields. Also available are “green” CBD concentrates that are not de-carboxolized.
DaCrema Botanicals only uses CBD from distillate, and never CBD from isolate.
What is the difference? Isolated CBD is often processed using a combination of extraction techniques including chemical extraction. We feel that this leads to a CBD with much less efficacy, and is not always safe for every application. While isolated CBD is stripped away from its plant identity, our CBD is distilled using CO2 extraction methods. The result is a pure, solvent free product, full of natural plant waxes, oils, essential oils (terpenes), and cannabinoids which contribute to what is called the “entourage effect”, which means the totality of the whole-plant extract is greater than that of the individual isolated parts.
