“CBD-enriched health foods, tinctures and oils are the next revolution in food and medicine” – so says Reality Sandwich author Allan Badiner http://www.realitysandwich.com/high_health_cbd_food_supply.
CBD = Cannabidiol
There currently is an explosion of entrepreneurial activity and creativity around making up for lost time with CBD. LA-based cannabis physician Allan Frankel explains: “up until this past year it was nearly impossible to help patients using CBD. Cannabis growers were focused on the ‘stoniest’ weed’, hence CBD, which is non-psychoactive and mitigates the effect of THC, was nearly lost in this community”.

Our experts are still in the early stages of understanding the synergistic effects of all the extracts from the hemp plant that are known today. More and more extracts are being found each year with now over 400 cannabiniods being listed http://dixiebotanicals.com/about/hemp-history/ .
The overall, combined effect of certain cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavenoids and perhaps another 200 molecules – all working together and carefully balanced (as in nature) produces what Dr Ethan Russo calls an “Entourage Effect”.

Did you know that one acre of hemp sequesters 2 tons of carbon from our atmosphere? So says US Hemp Oil’s Christopher J Boucher. Chris was the first American to plant a hemp crop in over 50 years back in 1994 at the USDA Research Station at Imperial Valley California. Chris has helped our developmental team source and produce a CBD cultivar of hemp seed and stalk.

Hemp Seed Oil Topical Benefits
Hemp Seed Oil contains many beneficial nutritive items that assist with problem skin. Some of these items include: Vitamin E, Chlorophyll, Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, GLA, phytosterols, phosspholipids, carotenes, calcium, magnesium, potassium and antioxidants. Hemp oil is non-greasy, absorbs readily into the skin’s pores and carries moisturizing benefits for the skin. In addition to topical application hemp oil taken internally compliments an overall skin care regimen. US Hemp Oil’s Chris Boucher recommends taking 2 teaspoons daily – mixing in protein shakes or use on salads. Combined with the topical application – many with problem skin have seen results in an improved appearance.
Hemp Seed Oil replenishes our EFA's (essential fatty acids), which helps our skin hold moisture, making it a natural humectant. The effectiveness of our barrier function is what determines the moisture level of our skin, thus the softness and smoothness. EFA's specifically Omega 6, Omega 3 and Omega 9 preserve this barrier.
