Combining Hemp and Adaptogenics

Combining Hemp and Adaptogenics

There’s been a lot of buzz over the last few years about cannabis and its products, such as hemp, especially in regards to their legality and use. As restrictions have lifted, we’ve been able to study hemp, especially in conjunction with other herbs and ingredients to observe the effects it’s had. Given the increasingly widespread use of cannabis and its derivatives, that can only be a good thing. What we’ve found is that hemp oil synergizes well with different herbs to help all sorts of people support a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.

Herbs for Health

It’s a well known fact that various herbs have been used as natural remedies for all sorts of ailments for centuries. Today, many of them are known for being used as supplements as well. Some of the most well known herbs that are used as health supplements include Echinacea, Ginseng, Ginkgo biloba, Elderberry, St. John’s wort, Turmeric, Ginger, Valerian, and Chamomile. Echinacea is commonly used to support respiratory health.* Ginseng is used to support healthy immune function, brain function, and activity levels.* Ginkgo biloba is traditionally used to support healthy memory and heart health.* Elderberry is used to support healthy immune system function.* St. John’s wort is often used to support healthy moods.* Turmeric is used for its ability to support a healthy inflammatory response.* Ginger is well known for its capacity to support healthy digestion.* Valerian is sometimes called nature’s Valium and helps support healthy sleep.* Chamomile has been used for a whole host of benefits, from supporting healthy digestive function to healthy moods.*

Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice

Because we believe strongly in the natural ability of herbs and hemp to support healthy living, we’ve developed our Adaptogenic line of Hemp Oil products. These blends feature hemp, herbs, and all-natural sweeteners. We use hemp extract, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil in the form of organic fractionated coconut oil, various pure essential oils, and Rebaudioside A powder, also called Reb A powder in all of our Adaptogenics blends. They all come together to create our hemp blends that support healthy sleep, balance, mobility, anti-aging, and immunity.*

These ingredients can have some impressive effects. Hemp extract has been used to support all sorts of healthy functions from skin to mood.* We use hemp isolate powder as our chosen form of hemp extract. MCT oil is easier for you to digest, thanks to being a smaller molecule than a lot of the fats you typically consume. This means it is usable energy. Reb A, a natural sweetener, comes from the stevia leaf. In fact, it’s the sweetest of all the natural compounds that can be derived from this leaf, coming in at a whopping 240 times sweeter than sugar.

Then there are the extracts and pure essential oils we add. The Adaptogenics blends feature unique combinations of ingredients that include extracts and pure essential oils. The Adaptogenic MOBILITY Blend features Turmeric, Black Pepper, and Ginger essential oils, combined to help support healthy skin revitalization, mobility, and joint health.* The Adaptogenic SLEEP Blend doesn’t have pure essential oils. Instead it has melatonin powder, a supplement that supports healthy sleep cycles.* Adaptogenic IMMUNITY combines Echinacea Purpurea extract powder, Reishi Mushroom extract powder, and Orange essential oil with vitamins D3, K2, and E to support healthy immune function.* Adaptogenic BALANCE offers a combination of Ashwagandha extract powder and Grapefruit essential oil to help support healthy moods.*

Why It Works

So how does it all work? Let’s start by looking at cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid, which is a type of chemical that targets the cannabinoid receptors of the brain that form the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system influences the regulation of the nervous system, cardiovascular system, immune system, brain chemistry balance, and pain management. Part of why everything in our blends work so well together is because of their ability to mix and combine. The featured ingredients are all oils or fat soluble molecules, which makes it easier for everything to mix together better. For example, the vitamins found in the IMMUNITY blend are all fat soluble vitamins, which means that they are more easily dissolved and absorbed when combined with fats, such as is the case with oils like coconut oil. Additionally, the fact that these products are oil based means that they tend to absorb more slowly, extending the longevity of their effects.

Adaptogenic substances are those used in herbal medicine, such as is often the case with things like pure essential oils and supplements. Given how the effects of the herbs that supply us with vitamins, nutrients, and supplements, help us deal with stress and find balance in life synergize with hemp oil, it makes sense to capitalize on that effect. Using a combination of hemp and herbs could be the solution you need to help you find your way to supporting a better, healthier lifestyle.
