Joy Salve Resized

JOY ORGANICS CBD SALVE

What Is It?

JOY ORGANICS CBD SALVE is USDA Certified Organic. It contains 1000mgs or 500mgs of Broad-Spectrum CBD (We carry both sizes). It is a topical herbal treatment. Topicals are applied directly to a part of the body for their healing properties. The three primary kinds of topicals are salves, infused oils, and creams or lotions. A salve is different from an oil or cream due to its density. Salves are more solid, and feel like a wax, though typically softer than balms. JOY ORGANICS CBD SALVE is meant to be applied to the skin, and rubbed in thoroughly as needed throughout the day.

What’s In It?

    100mg (or 500mg) Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract

– Hemp Extract can be a confusing term for CBD newbies, but the term is simply interchangeable with CBD when it comes to this product. Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract means that this product does not contain THC, but still contains all the other cannabinoids that come from the Hemp plant. CBD’s medicinal properties include reduced anxiety and inflammation.

    Organic Beeswax

– Beeswax is a naturally occurring wax produced in bee hives by honey bees. Beeswax is used to give salves the base for its harder texture, and add the benefit of skin health. According to a double-blind study conducted in August 2018 beeswax is good for sensitive skin and it also hydrates the skin. In a clinical trial conducted in December 2003 the combination of beeswax, natural honey, and olive oil helped improve skin condition caused by dermatitis or psoriasis. Beeswax has also been linked to reduce cholesterol and fungal skin infections, but according to WebMD there is no good scientific research to support these claims. In my own research I was not able to find any scientific evidence to dispute WebMD’s claim, so for now lets just conclude that beeswax is best for skincare.

    Organic Essential Oils

– The two organic essential oils used in JOY ORGANICS CBD SALVE are Lavender and Eucalyptus. Lavender is a flowering plant in the mint family. There are many benefits to using Lavender, and the most common is the inhalation (aroma therapy) of it for anxiety and depression. When Lavender is used topically it has shown results of reducing pain, as indicated in a clinical trial conducted in 2013. Eucalyptus is a flowering tree and the inhalation of its minty aroma reduces pain and inflammation, as shown in this June 2013 randomized clinical trial.

What Is It Best For?

The best use of JOY ORGANICS CBD SALVE would be for inflammation and pain if you need pinpoint accuracy. Whether you have chronic knee pain or a bruised elbow this salve can be applied to give you the relieve you need in that area. The CBD and the essential oils take care of the pain. The added bonus of this product is that it is also good for skin health.

This product has health benefits in abundance, just like all the products sold in the Pharm Stand CBD Wellness Store and on our website. Our goal is to give our customer products that are beneficial for overall mind and body wellness. This JOY ORGANICS CBD SLAVE fits the bill. Enjoy!

HATH BETTER DAYS CAPSULES

Whats Is it?

HATH BETTER DAYS is a 25mg. full spectrum capsule. The capsules are meant to be taken everyday, similarly to other dietary supplements. A dietary supplement helps assure that you get enough of the vital substances the body needs to function correctly, and that is exactly what HATH BETTER DAYS capsules do.

Whats In It?

25mg. Full Spectrum Hemp Extract– Hemp Extract can be a confusing term for CBD newbies. Some customers seem to be comforted by the word CBD appearing on the Box. In the case of HATH BETTER DAYS, full spectrum hemp extract is interchangeable with full spectrum CBD. This means the product contains CBD and traces of THC (less than 0.3%). If you would like to check what is in HATH BETTER DAYS capsules it has been independently tested by a third party lab, and every box contains a QR code which shows you the results of the independent test. I scanned a random box of these capsules and the results show that there is 23.5mg of CBD and 0.14% of THC, making it a full spectrum capsule.

500mg Tumeric– Tumeric is a flowering plant and the root of that plant is considered a superfood. Superfoods are particularly beneficial for health and well being. Tumeric is used in many Indian cuisine; it gives curry its yellow color and mustard-esque aroma. The benefits medicinally come from a compound in Tumeric called Curcumin which contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties among numerous other health benefits.

10mg. Black Pepper Extract– Considered one of the most used spices in the world (Fun Fact- peppercorns are fruits). Black pepper is not well known for its healing benefits, though it should be. Black pepper is loaded with a compound called Piperine which has medicinal properties; it is good for brain health, inflammation, cholestoral, and has several other benefits. Check out all the science backed health benefits here.

An added bonus of having black pepper extract and tumeric in the HATH BETTER DAYS supplement is that they work well together. Piperine in black pepper enhances the absorption of the Curcumin found in Tumeric. According to a clinical trial piperine increases curcumin absorption in the body by 2000%. This greatly increases the likelihood that the benefits of curcumin will be felt addressing your needs.

What Is It Best For?

The best use would be for inflammation. All three ingredients in HATH BETTER DAYS (full spectrum CBD, Turmeric, Black Pepper Extract), have anti-inflammatory properties. This combination makes this product a great buy for chronic pain caused by inflammation. Inflammation can be brought on by heart disease, cancer, arthritis, or just daily bumps and bruises. If you have any of these ailments this product is for you. In addition,  Full Spectrum CBD is also great for generalized anxiety, so this product has benefits in abundance, just like all the products sold in the Pharm Stand CBD Wellness Store and on our website. Our goal is to give the customer products that are beneficial for overall mind and body wellness. HATH BETTER DAYS capsules fits the bill. Enjoy!

 

 

 

CBD 101: The Basics

No matter where you look, those three letters are seemingly everywhere! Whether it be in a gas station, retail store, or specialized shop, products labeled with the letters CBD are taking over left and right.
But what does it all mean? It may seem overwhelming to take it all in at first, but learning from the ground up can make it much more manageable.

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring chemical. It is found in the Cannabaceae family of plants, specifically in the genus of flowering plants known as Cannabis. These plants have a rich history of medicinal use due to its therapeutic profile, and the research regarding the benefits of cannabis has gained momentum within the last 10 years.
Cannabis plants produce unique chemicals called cannabinoids. Our bodies have natural receptors for these substances in the endocannabinoid system, and it can be activated by phytocannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids found in cannabis). The affected endocannabinoid system is involved in multiple physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory.
The two most abundant and commonly researched cannabinoids include cannabidiol and perhaps the most famous cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Will it get me high?

Because CBD is associated with cannabis, many people assume that using a product infused with CBD will have the same effects as smoking cannabis. This is not true!!
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the chemical compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis such as: a possible sense of euphoria and relaxation, heightened sensory perception, altered perception of time, and an increase in appetite. While THC may provide relaxation to the user, there is evidence to suggest that it is short-term relief and higher doses of THC have an anxiogenic effect (works to increase anxiety).
Cannabidiol does not share the same psychoactive qualities as THC.
  
It does not cause a “high” in users, and has been associated with the same sense of relaxation and pain relief that THC can provide.
Unlike THC, studies suggest CBD is an anxiolytic compound (it reduces anxiety) at both low and high doses. There is even scientific evidence that CBD be used to counteract the anxiogenic characteristics of THC (Niesink & van Laar, 2013).  When used in conjunction with THC, CBD will regulate cannabinoid stimulation in the brain and weaken the overall strength of the mind-altering substance.

Is it safe to take CBD?

CBD is normally very well-tolerated, but there is always risk of side effects when putting any form of substance into your body. Although very mild, CBD can cause side effects such as dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue.
More importantly, CBD can also interact with other medications you’re taking, such as blood thinners. It is always important to consult with a medical professional before beginning a new treatment.
In a review of CBD, the World Health Organization stated, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
This is contrary to findings involving THC.
Although it is debated heavily among users, there is substantial evidence in clinical studies that indicate THC dependence exists (Budney, 2006; Budney and Hughes, 2006; Copeland, 2004; Roffman and Stephens, 2006).

How much modern research is being conducted?

CBD is still a budding research topic and recent events (such as the legalization of hemp) have made it widely available for all forms of clinical research. The beginning findings have been optimistic, as there has been evidence found to suggest CBD could be used to relieve physical and mental ailments, such as anxiety.
According to ClinicalTrials.Gov, there are over 100 active clinical trials involving the study of cannabidiol. Although anecdotal evidence is promising, CBD can become even more legitimized as a treatment as contemporary scientific evidence continues to accumulate!
