Cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS. (For more about the ECS, see question below.) The best known of these are THC and CBD, although many more are constantly being discovered, such as CBN, CBG and THC-V.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent. It is one of the two most abundant cannabinoids found. the other being tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. The major difference between the two is that THC is psychoactive, and CBD is not psychoactive.

CBD is being scientifically investigated for a wide range of health effects. For those interested in chemistry, its formula is C21H30O2, and its molecular mass is 314.4636.
‘CBD oil’ can be derived from the flowers of medical plants, or from the stalks of the cannabis plant, a variety that is grown for industrial purposes. Industrial cannabis is a fibrous plant with long, strong stalks, and few flowering buds. This makes it a good feedstock for making paper, clothing, rope, and plastics. Our plants are specifically bred to optimize CBD content.

On average, our CBD-to-THC ratio is in the range of 22:1 to 25:1. Our plants contain less than 0.3% THC, which makes them legal under the Federal Farm Bill. Our medicine is ideal for people looking to gain the health-promoting benefits of CBD without the ‘high’ of THC. CBD has almost zero psychoactive properties, for most people.

CBD has the potential to ease symptoms of a wide variety of medical ailments and conditions. Currently, research is underway as to its effectiveness in addressing medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Schizophrenia, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Anxiety and Cancer.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the cannabis plant’s primary component for causing psychoactive effects. THC was first discovered and isolated by Bulgarian-born chemist Raphael Mechoulam in Israel in 1964. It was found that, when smoked, tetrahydrocannabinol is absorbed into the bloodstream and travels to the brain, attaching itself to the naturally-occurring endocannabinoid receptors located in the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, and basal ganglia. These are the parts of the brain responsible for thinking, memory, pleasure, coordination and movement.

THC is what is responsible for the “high” one experiences when smoking or consuming cannabis. Interestingly, CBD is sometimes used to mitigate the effects of THC in people who become uncomfortable after ingesting too much THC.

THC and CBD are the two most common constituents, and in many cases, they work well when combined. Scientific studies have established that CBD and THC interact synergistically to enhance each other’s therapeutic effects. British researchers have shown that CBD potentiates THC’s anti-inflammatory properties in an animal model of colitis.

Scientists at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco determined that a combination of CBD and THC has a more potent anti-tumor effect than either compound alone when tested on brain cancer and breast cancer cell lines. And extensive clinical research has demonstrated that CBD combined with THC is more beneficial for neuropathic pain than either compound as a single molecule.

The reason we provide CBD-only products (with little or no THC) is due to the preference that many people have to avoid psychoactive effects of THC. When you do your own research, at one of the informational websites noted below, there are many diseases and ailments that respond very well to CBD alone.

It is our view that the THC works as a catalyst, making the CBD work better. There is just enough THC in our CBD products (less than 0.3%) to provide most of the wanted medicinal effects without the psychoactive effects induced by THC.

CBN is a distinctly different cannabinoid than CBD, although it is chemically similar. It can form as THC degrades over time in cannabis flower. It is about 25% as psychoactive as THC, so it is much milder in its perceived “high.” Research has shown potential as a sleep aid and in chronic pain management.

CBG is a cannabinoid that’s often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids. This is because other cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC, are derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), an acidic form of CBG. It is much less prevalent in cannabis plants than CBD, which can comprise 25%, whereas CBG content is more like 1 %. Like CBD, it isn’t psychoactive and is showing promise for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and cancer fighting properties.

The word cannabis is the Latin genus name for both medical marijuana and industrial hemp, which makes it confusing. ‘CBD oil’ can be derived either from the flowers of specific strains of medical marijuana, or from the stalks of the hemp plant. The source makes a difference. The quality of our flower-derived oils is much closer to nature than hemp, which requires industrial processing. Industrial hemp is a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. Industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely any flowering buds, while our “ACDC” strain of Cannabis looks more like other marijuana strains. It was bred and developed in Israel and is a hybrid combination of Cannabis Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis. It is smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds.

Hempseed oil, which can be found at grocery stores, is produced by cold pressing the seeds of the cannabis plant. It is considered to be a great nutritive food, and may provide some health benefits, but it contains only a trace amount of CBD, typically, less than 5%.

Our CBD oil is made from special strains of flowers grown specifically because of their high CBD levels (15-20%), which is widely studied and recognized for its potential healing properties, and very low levels of THC.

Hempseed oil is not Hemp flower oil. Hemp flower is Cannabis flower, just with less THC.

The short answer is no. CBD is CBD, whether made from marijuana or hemp. The question is, which would you rather consume? A product derived naturally from flowers? Or one that must be chemically process from large amounts of an industrial plant used for industrial purposes (not for human consumption)? Our strain of cannabis has an abundant natural CBD content, and requires minimal processing. We add only organic, natural oil, such as coconut oil or sunflower oil. The only reason industrial hemp is used to produce CBD oils is that industrial hemp products are not considered Schedule 1 drugs by the Federal government. Just because they are not “illegal” does not mean you should be consuming them.

In addition, the industrial hemp products do not contain enough THC to properly activate and potentiate the CBD medicinal benefits.

Studies show that having the cannabinoids infused in sesame oil will bypass the liver and go directly to the lymphatic and circulatory system(s).

The studies that are reporting liver harm from CBD are based on dosage of over 1000mg per day.

We would never recommend more than 100mg per day.

The AM formula is a blend of CBD-rich flowers that have an activating effect because of their distinct terpenes and flavonoids.

The PM formula is a blend of CBD-rich flowers that have a calming effect because of their distinct terpenes and flavonoids 

CBD oils can contain more than 100 different phyto-cannabinoids, most notably CBD (cannabidiol), CBC, CBG, CBN, and others yet to be identified. (Standard laboratories are not yet able to identify all of the components.)

The most common terpenes in our CBD oils are Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, Myrcene, and Limonene/beta-Phellandrene.  Also appearing in smaller amounts are beta-Pinene, alpha-Pinene, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Nerolidol og Phytol, , alpha-Humulene, delta-3-Carene, and (E)-beta-Farnesene.

As with all natural products, there are natural variances in odor, flavor, appearance, yield, etc., that are affected by growing methods, location, time of harvest, elevation level, soil type, etc. Components may vary from batch to batch, and growing season by growing season.

We test each batch separately to ensure the quality of our products and the accuracy of our labels. Each batch has its own unique profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and more. You can be sure that our products are organically grown, naturally processed, and extracted with care.

Our CBD oil extracts are made with a simple process of oil infusion, which is the most natural and least toxic method of extracting CBD from whole flowers.

Other companies use an industrial process called “subcritical (or supercritical) CO2 extraction.”  This is the second safest method. It creates a thick, tar-like substance that must be diluted for consumption, and must be de-waxed through another industrial process.

Another method is to make tinctures using sugar grain alcohol, which is fairly common, but this method does not separate out chlorophyll, so the end product appears dark green, and is harsh in the mouth unless mixed with other foods or liquids.

CBD can also be extracted with the use of dangerous solvents, such as benzene or butane, which should not be ingested by human beings.

Our preferred process is to use natural infusion and distillation methods because they utilize only natural organic materials, with no potential chemical residues.

Our special strains produce an average ratio of CBD to THC of approximately 24:1.  The flowers we obtain from our organic plants contain approximately 15-20% CBD, depending on appellation. The remaining active ingredients in broad spectrum cannabis also contain chlorophyll, terpenes, other cannabinoids, and other phytochemicals.

Our gentle process of oil extraction increases the percentages of CBD 60% to as high as 75%, and THC is always less than 1%.

Our CBD oils have approximately 20 mg of CBD per ml of oil. That adds up to 600 mg of cannabidiol in each ounce

Our CBD oil is 100% flower-derived, not from hemp seed oil or isolate. Many companies use natural substitutes that have no medical efficacy.

We suggest taking CBD oil as a dietary supplement, and recommend it be taken by dropper directly into the mouth. Our naturally flavored oils are a delicious way to enjoy taking your daily supplement.

Also, it can be added to anything, but do not cook or microwave (over 100degrees F), since heat may disrupt the ratio of the cannabinoids.

There are no standard serving sizes for any particular  product. 

It really depends on many individual factors such as: your body size, your metabolism, your health condition, and the ailment you may be treating.

A physician who specializes in the use of medical marijuana told us, “The basic formula is between .25mg and 2 mg per pound daily. A person with cancer might take 2 to 3 mg per pound per day. If a person is taking their medicinal herb in three doses per day, the total daily amount would be divided by three. Children and small-bodied people would obviously require less than large-bodied adults.”

In a 1 oz. bottle, there is 30 ml. of oil, which is about 900 drops, containing approximately 600 mg of CBD.  2 oz. bottles have 60 ml. and about 1800 drops, containing approximately 1200 mg of CBD.

Again, each person has a unique body chemistry, body weight, history, tolerance built up over time, unique digestion system, and body chemistry. It has been reported that the best way to begin is with very small doses, 3 times daily, one hour before meals. It was recommended that this continue for up to two weeks, to see whether your condition improves.

If it doesn’t improve, increase the dosage slightly, and use it that way for one full week, and increase it again the next week, until you find relief.

Cannabidiol (CBD), and other phytochemical constituents are considered to be generally safe. Tinctures are not a modern invention. In the thousands of years of use, we know of no recorded fatalities or major illnesses as a result from the use of naturally-derived CBD. 

Some people experience a shift in body sensation or perception due to the relaxing effect of CBD on the nervous system. If you haven’t experienced this relaxation effect before, it can feel a bit weird.  (Some people call it a “body high.”) We suggest that you relax and enjoy the experience!  If you resist it or worry about it, it can stimulate an unpleasant emotional state (dysphoria). If you are experiencing negative side effects, know that they will wear off in a couple of hours. During this time, we find it best to be in nature with our eyes open.

Not only is CBD not psychoactive, it can be helpful in calming the psycho-activity of THC. For people who may “feel it” more than others, or are considered more “sensitive” to stimulants, we recommend CBD-rich cannabis, vs THC-rich cannabis.

There have been many anecdotal reports and studies showing the benefits of CBD. We are just at the beginning of discovering the health benefits of over 110 cannabinoids. 

Our CBD-rich oils are produced from California-grown flowers on all-organic farmsteads. Other companies often use fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides, or chemical extraction processes. We do not.

If price is a significant concern, yes it is possible to make your own oil extractions.  There are many excellent books and articles that can guide you through the process of growing your own high-CBD strains and extracting the CBD naturally.

We do offer a discount for senior citizens, veterans and members receive “wallet credits” for providing feedback. If price is indeed a barrier, please contact us.

No, hempseed oil, which can be found at grocery stores, is produced by cold pressing the seeds of the cannabis plant. It is considered to be a great nutritive food, and may provide some health benefits, but it contains only a trace amount of CBD, typically, less than 5%.

Hempseed oil is not Hemp flower oil. Hemp flower is Cannabis flower, just with less THC.

You should not, but has been known to occur in rare instances. Our CBD oils are made from strains with very low amounts of THC. There is no known psychoactive effect from CBD itself.

If you feel something weird or odd after taking our products, it is likely the result of your nervous system relaxing in a way that it hasn’t before.  We suggest lying down, relaxing, and enjoying this new state.  Some people refer to it as a “body high,” because it does not affect cognition.  If this happens, and your anxiety increases, lower your dose to half of what you took before. Any effects like this will only last an hour, or two at the most.  

As your tolerance and familiarity build, and you find your right dosage, the chances are rare for this to happen again.

We use a third-party testing laboratory to analyze every batch of our CBD oils.

We test for cannabinoid potency, heavy metals, bacterials, microbials, mycotoxins (fungals), and pesticides.

All our CBD oil blends are tested after bottling to guarantee the potency and efficacy of our products.

Terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants and some animals. They’re responsible for the aromas, flavors, and even colors associated with various types of vegetation. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make certain strains smell or taste different from others. Terpenes can also have therapeutic value by working with cannabinoids as part of the Entourage Effect (see below).

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) unknown until the 1960s, is a network of receptors (CB1 and CB2 being the most common) in the nervous system and brain that bind with cannabinoids produced by the body. This ECS regulates many functions of the human body, as well as playing an important role in multiple aspects of neural functions, including the control of movement and motor coordination, learning and memory, emotion and motivation, addictive-like behavior and pain modulation, among others. It is also responsible for mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis.

The “entourage effect” refers to the synergistic way that cannabinoids, as well as terpenes, combine to have a greater effect than they would separately. Some examples include how the pine-scented terpene Pinene works with THC to mitigate compromised memory, and how the citrusy terpene Limonene and CBD can combine to alleviate anxiety.

Research into CBD and the neural correlates of anxiety has shown that at high concentrations, CBD directly activates the 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine) serotonin receptor, thereby conferring an anti-anxiety effect. This protein receptor also turns up in a range of biological and neurological processes, including (but not limited to) anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea, and vomiting.

5-HT1A is a member of the family of 5-HT receptors, which are activated by the neurotransmitter serotonin. Found in both the central and peripheral nervous systems, 5-HT receptors trigger various intracellular cascades of chemical messages to produce either an excitatory or inhibitory response, depending on the chemical context of the message.

CBD also directly interacts with various ion channels to confer a therapeutic effect. CBD binds to TRPV1 receptors, which also function as ion channels. TRPV1 is known to mediate pain perception, inflammation and body temperature.

As for drug testing for THC…because there is a small amount (less than 0.3%) of THC in our products, long-time or heavy users may ingest enough THC to fail a drug test for that substance. As cannabis becomes more acceptable to the mainstream, we’re hoping drug tests for THC will become a thing of the past.

CBD has been found to not be addictive and is not known to cause dependence or result in abuse, and humans have shown to tolerate it well in clinical studies.
Although CBD is generally considered safe, it can cause adverse effects such as diarrhea and fatigue in some people.

CBD does have the potential to interact with some medications. The concern has to do with how the body metabolizes certain substances.

Before trying CBD, it’s crucial to talk to your doctor about any vitamins, supplements, and prescription and over-the-counter medications you’re taking.

Within the U.S., you can fly with CBD products that contain less than 0.3 percent THC. However, TSA rules very much apply, in that any liquids (oils, tinctures, creams) must be less than 3 ounces. You can bring a CBD vape pen through airport security in your carry-on, but not in your checked baggage. And any vape cartridge that has more than 0.3% THC may be confiscated by TSA.

Find out whether the cannabis is sustainably farmed; organic; contains pesticides, heavy metals or other fertilizer chemicals; and has been tested by a third-party laboratory. Harmful additives or extraction processes can undermine the quality and safety of CBD oil. We take great care to follow best practices in growing and formulating all our products.

We offer CBD-infused tinctures, capsules and topicals. Which product is best for you depends on the results you want…if you want a sense of calm without drowsiness, you will likely enjoy our AM formula products. For better sleep, you should try our PM formula tinctures or capsules. For aches and pains, try one or more of our topicals. We are always available to help you with specific products to address various medical conditions…just ask.

We are determined that PLACE matters. The elevation, soil and sun of our California-grown plants translates into higher cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, which means we offer the best quality CBD products money can buy!

CBD oils can contain more than 100 different phyto-cannabinoids, most notably CBD (cannabidiol), CBC, CBG, CBN, and others yet to be identified. (Standard laboratories are not yet able to identify all of the components.)

Full-spectrum CBD is a type of CBD that contains all beneficial compounds naturally found in the cannabis plant. These include:

Cannabinoids. There are more than 100 cannabinoids, of which CBD and THC are the best known.

Terpenes. Cannabis has more than 150 terpenes, which affect the plant’s fragrance (“piney” and “citrusy” aromas are caused by terpenes.). Terpenes can also have therapeutic benefits, such as the calming fragrance of lavender.

Flavonoids. Cannabis includes about 20 different flavonoids. Flavonoids are found in all kinds of plants, including fruits, vegetables, grains, and more. Like terpenes, they have therapeutic effects. The flavonoids found in cannabis have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and neuroprotective properties.

All our products are organically grown, naturally processed, and extracted without resorting to harmful chemicals or processes.

We have a very strict internal quality assurance system, and we use a third-party laboratory to analyze every batch of our CBD oils. We check for cannabinoid potency, any heavy metals, bacterials, microbials, mycotoxins (fungals), and pesticides. Our CBD oil blends also get tested to confirm that our products contain the amount of cannabidiol (CBD) stated on the label.

In February of 2015, the FDA issued warnings to a number of companies because they were marketing products improperly, or labeling them improperly. Some of their CBD products testing negative for any CBD at all. Healing Essence guarantees the quality of its products and offers a money-back guarantee for any remaining product for up to one year after purchase.

Our cannabidiol-rich oils are produced only from the flowers of one strain of medical cannabis. Other companies import hemp oil from overseas, where it is difficult to monitor growing conditions, such as the use of pesticides and insecticides. We focus on ensuring that our products are grown locally and organically, produced minimally, and tested rigorously to ensure the highest quality products available. It’s an expensive proposition, unfortunately. Legalization has lowered the cost of growing in some states, and we are hopeful for Federal legalization. If price is a concern, we suggest that you make your own products, if you are able to do so. Many states now allow those with medical conditions to grow their own cannabis, which is the best way to ensure the quality of the products you consume. There are many excellent books that can guide you through the process of growing cannabis and extracting the CBD naturally.

One additional note on this topic: your body builds a storage of cannabidiol in the body, unlike most chemicals. Cannabidiol is fat-soluble, and can stay bound to the cells in your body for weeks. After a few weeks of using CBD oil, you may need less oil to get the same effects as you got from your original dose.

We strongly recommend that you ask your doctor for advice (or a doctor familiar with medical cannabis as a treatment for your particular ailment). Ultimately, however, you are responsible for the quality of your health, and for determining the correct dose for you. We also recommend that you study the scientific literature on one of the trusted sites we mentioned above.

For personalized recommendations on the dosing, please reach out to us: info@healingessencecbd.com

An eyedropper holds about 17 drops. Each drop contains 2/3mg of CBD, so a dropper will contain approximately 11mg of CBD.

We suggest taking CBD oil as a dietary supplement, and recommend it be taken by dropper directly into the mouth. Our naturally flavored oils are a delicious way to enjoy taking your daily supplement.

Our topicals can be effective in relieving pain from sore muscles or providing relief from many skin conditions. Simply rub (or apply the roll-on) on the affected area and allow it to sink in.

Yes, although the salve might need to be made thinner by rubbing it into the palm of your hand for a few minutes. Our topicals are not at all harsh and are safe to apply to sensitive skin areas.

Yes. CBD can be very effective in relieving arthritis, helping with digestive issues or providing an increased sense of calmness and well-being.

Research has found that dogs have about twice as many CB1 receptors as cats, so they are more sensitive to the effects of CBD. As a result, our cat formula is more concentrated.
