Why Transparency Matters: Be Safe, Not Sorry

If a stranger walked up and handed you a cookie, would you eat it?

Most people would refuse the offer, even though it might cause a socially awkward moment they’d rather avoid. That cookie is probably perfectly delicious and safe to eat, but why would you take a chance that it isn’t?

The same concept applies to the use of hemp extract. It’s important to know where it came from and how it was grown, harvested, and formulated. Since its use helps regulate the very processes that keep you living, its quality should never be compromised.

After all, people use hemp extract to make their lives better, not to expose them to harm!

Hemp Extract: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

—Jim Rohn, entrepreneur & motivational speaker

Making changes to your daily routine doesn’t have to be a downer. Taking up yoga, swapping green tea for your usual Diet Coke, or making time for meditation—all of these changes are pretty easy no-brainers when it comes to protecting your health.

The hitch, however, is that you have to stick with the changes in order to benefit most from them.

In a quest for optimum wellness, people have turned to WildPlant hemp extract as a simple, natural solution to maintain their overall health. Many adopt CBD as part of their daily supplement regimen. But some of our customers tell us they’re only seeking temporary pain relief.

Or should you wait until you’re in need of pain management and just take short-term doses?

Hemp extract provides your body with a natural solution for overall balance and wellness.

We’ll get right to it. There is no significant amount of research that says that CBD strengthens your immune system. The companies that are making these claims are bad actors within the industry that are trying to capitalize on your fear and should not be trusted. 

There is, however, a lot of research that shows that by maintaining things like stress levels, chronic inflammation, sleep/wake cycles and by making time for exercise, your body’s immune system will function at a higher level.

There are many ways to use hemp products for wellness, such as vaping to edibles to tinctures. We are going to outline our favorite and most effective methods in order of absorption and bioavailability. When choosing the option that is best for your needs, we recommend figuring out what your goals are, and where in your body you are targeting for improvements.

If you feel like you’re not very “in tune” and won’t notice the changes you might experience, try checking in with yourself every day and keeping a baseline record of how you’re feeling. This will allow you to go back and track progress.

How Hemp Extract Supports Your Body and Why Quality Matters

The Endocannabinoid System

People looking for relief are turning to hemp products in record numbers. Going outside the “norm” of band-aid style pharmaceuticals and reaching for an option that has the ability to do more than just suppress symptoms is offering people a new-found sense of hope. Hemp extract is often described as a “cure-all” because of its ability to address a wide range of symptoms, but most people don’t know why that is and how intricate our bodies really are. 

It’s About Balance

Everyone has an Endocannabinoid System that is made up of CB1 and CB2 receptors which are spread throughout your body. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain, while CB2 receptors are found among the rest of the body. Different phytocannabinoids interact differently with these receptors. For example, the THC phytocannabinoid (CBD’s intoxicating relative) binds to CB1 receptors, which produces the “high” that is traditionally associated with smoking marijuana. The CBD phytocannabinoid modifies the receptor’s ability to bind to cannabinoids and increases the body’s natural levels of endocannabinoids, which balances many of your bodily functions. If you’re saying “um, what?” Hang tight, I’ll explain.

People looking for relief are turning to hemp products in record numbers. Although hemp extract oil often gets described as a magic panacea, many people fail to realize how intricate our bodies really are. 

Hemp extracts contain phytocannabinoids, which are therapeutic compounds found in the resin of the cannabis plant that can aid in pain management but they don’t work the way your every day over the counter pain reliever works. When you take an over the counter pain reliever or anti-inflammatory, you often have to take a dose every 4-8 hours until your body heals or your ailment passes. Taking these kinds of medications is not easy on your kidneys and sustained use can lead to complications. When you take hemp products, you are stimulating your body’s Endocannabinoid System to regulate and balance bodily functions more effectively. By incorporating hemp oil, you are able to address these issues daily so that they’re not overwhelming you, rather than just when they’re affecting you negatively and you get desperate for relief.

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid found in cannabis plants. Hemp plants, which are known for their high levels of the CBD phytocannabinoid have recently entered the spotlight due to the fact that hemp plants can be processed and extracted to produce extracts that contain high levels of CBD. These extracts also contain other phytocannabinoids in addition to CBD that can aid in both general health and wellness, but in addressing ailments as well. Hemp extracts that contain CBD are GRAS (generally recognized as safe), non-addictive, and non-intoxicating, which makes these hemp-based products a new attractive contender in the natural wellness space.

Since the dawn of time, cannabis has been used for its fibers as well as for wellness purposes. Prehistoric colonies of people have been discovered by archeologists who found people wearing hemp clothing and hemp rope that they made from hemp fibers. Archeologists have also found remnants of medicinal herb kits that contained cannabis. Wild animals even instinctively consume cannabis plants and reap its therapeutic benefits. The seemingly “new” tradition of utilizing this plant for our gain isn’t new at all.
