The Healing Power of Whole Plant CBD
Guest post by Robin & Chaos of The Farmaceuticals Co.
“I have to tell you, Robs – I took it and felt like, okay, I can do this. I can breathe again. I think I’ll go do some beading.”
Tears squeezed out of the corners of my eyes as I pulled my phone away from my face. I couldn’t believe I was hearing my mother say these magical words.
“Why are you crying, Robin?”
Darn, she heard me anyway.
“Oh mom, I’m just so happy that CBD helps you feel better.”
“Me too, Robs.”
We know we aren’t the only ones who want our moms to be happy and healthy. Our moms have struggled with chronic pain, depression, inflammation, and anxiety for as long as we can remember. We have seen first hand the horrible side effects that the pharmaceutical drugs have had on them – both on their bodies and on their spirits. So when we started The Farmaceuticals Co., we had tunnel-vision focus: We set out to create the most whole, most organic, most powerful, and most true-to-the-earth plant medicine we could possibly make – for our moms.
Most people know about THC, a compound in marijuana that has many therapeutic properties and is most well known for its intoxicating effects. Cannabidiol or CBD is another compound in cannabis that gets a lot of attention for its medical benefits and it is non-psychoactive. Because it’s non-psychoactive, products made with CBD – whether used externally or taken internally – are a great choice for patients looking for relief from pain, anxiety, inflammation and more without feeling “stoned” or lethargic. Research continuously shows the potential for CBD to help treat a wide range of ailments including depression, PTSD, arthritis, epilepsy, and chronic pain. And because of it’s neuroprotective effects, CBD’s anti-cancer properties are being studied across the globe.
What is Whole-Plant Extraction?
Like all plants, cannabis is much more than just a THC or CBD molecule. In fact, there are over 400 additional compounds, including other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids, proteins, enzymes, fatty acids, and sugars. These other compounds not only give the cannabis plant its scent and flavor, but research has shown that terpenes significantly enhance the therapeutic potential of CBD and THC. Scientists call this phenomenon in which all the constituents of the cannabis plant work together, the “entourage effect.” Utilizing an age-old recipe of whole-plant extraction passed down from generations of women healers, all of our products contain the full spectrum of healing benefits from the plant. Each drop of our products is crafted with love and scientifically triple-tested for potency, consistency, and purity.
Each batch of oil is hand-crafted in small batches. We like to use the analogy of a Micro-Brewery when talking about how we make our products. We pay attention to and are excited about the details that most people don’t even know are details. Each batch is a specialized infusion of healing cannabis, making us the cannabis Micro-Infusery you can trust.
Why Do We Care So Much About How Our Products Are Made?
We care because we are healers and we believe we are all connected. We are connected to the earth, to the plants and to one another. Our high-quality, natural, whole-plant extracted products proudly reflect this connection. By providing deep relief without the harmful side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, we help our mothers and patients like you put the Farm back in Farmaceuticals.
