CBD is well-known for its many health benefits. Many people have found it can help reduce pain, anxiety, and provide more restful sleep. New research is showing how it may contribute to improvement in numerous chronic diseases and conditions and could help to reduce the side effects of certain prescription medications. We’re thrilled that Tree of Life Wellness Center now carries HEMPLETS®!

What is CBD?

CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. Cannabis is a universal term that includes two different varieties of plants called marijuana and hemp. THC is the major component of marijuana which gives people the psychoactive or “high” feeling. The hemp plant is lacking in THC and to be classified as hemp, a cannabis plant must contain less than 0.3% THC by volume; you won’t experience any high effects.

How CBD helps the body

The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which engages in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system and play an important part in regulating inflammation. Your ECS regulates how quickly neurotransmitters are being released, slowing them down or speeding them up as necessary to return to and maintain balance. According to a study, researchers found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain administered to mice and rats. In a different study using an animal model, CBD applied topically on the skin helped lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Researchers suggest CBD might counteract the hypersensitivity of cells surrounding nerves in people with chronic pain, including those with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender (trigger) points.

CBD holds promise for conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, psychosis, and Parkinson’s disease. New research published in 2021, “Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease”, CBD helped to restore the function of two proteins key to reducing the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaque, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, and improved cognition in early-onset familial Alzheimer’s.

How CBD is commonly used

CBD is commonly used for anxiety and insomnia. Many studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. CBD has also been shown to reduce levels of stress and anxiety in those suffering from conditions such as PTSD, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. CBD even reduced the stress and discomfort surrounding public speaking. Although numerous more medical studies are needed to determine the effects of CBD for a variety of health concerns, research has found no adverse health outcomes or abuse potential from CBD use, but rather several beneficial medical applications.

Tree of Life Wellness Center and CBD

The quality of CBD products makes a huge difference in experiencing lasting beneficial results! Tree of Life Wellness Center is very selective about the products they utilize in their practice and store. They strive to carry products from reputable companies with quality products to achieve the best results. Future Pharm’s HEMPLETS® caught their attention. The bioavailability of tablet and capsule forms of many supplements can be reduced for a variety of reasons. Most oral vitamins and micronutrients lose most of their potency through poor digestion, metabolism, and excretion, prior to reaching the intended target cells in our body. However, HEMPLETS® utilizes a highly advanced patent-pending liposomal technology to deliver high-quality CBD, in a convenient chewable dosage form. It is the only liposomal chewable tablet in the world that has a patent-pending liposome platform. Liposomal Technology is an innovative delivery system providing increased absorption and eight times greater bioavailability for CBD’s active ingredients. As a result, the CBD retains its quality! HEMPLETS® is designed to deliver a single potent dose that is THC-free in an oral tablet form. Liposomes are a protective lipid layer modified to carry either fat-soluble or water-soluble molecules. When the liposome merges with the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane, it can deliver its contents directly to specific cells in the body. The longer you take CBD the better the effects.

Future Pharm is thrilled that Tree of Life Wellness Center is now carrying our products. Look for HEMPLETS® the next time you visit their store or practice, or you can purchase HEMPLETS® through our online store.
