MORE LIFE began exploring the healing and medicinal properties of the hemp plant and its use as an alternative or addition to Western medicine over a decade ago. We use our own products and have seen proven results!
Through years of research, we have created a unique collection of all-natural organic wellness products based upon our proprietary 99% pure CBD Hemp Extract formulas found and extracted from organic non-GMO hemp farms. Our products are non-psychoactive containing no pesticides, heavy metals or toxins, and can be sold in all 50 states and in many countries worldwide.
We source raw materials from multiple qualified U.S. Agricultural Hemp suppliers based mainly in Oregon, Colorado and Kentucky to ensure continuous availability of qualified raw materials. COAs for isolate and full spectrum raw material currently in production are available upon request.
One thing people are always shocked to learn is that CBD is similar to a compound that our bodies produce naturally, and from birth, called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids aren’t just found in the cannabis plant, they’re also naturally occurring in nature (in kale and broccoli!) but they are the most potent in cannabis.
When we consume cannabinoids, they stimulate the endocannabinoid system, a system of receptors throughout our central nervous system and almost every organ of our bodies (our skin, digestive tracts, etc.). Cannabinoids are the keys that unlock these receptors and this system is incredibly important to our health because they can help with our immune systems, protect our brains, help us manage stress and even keep our bodies in balance (“homeostasis”).
We like to think of CBD like a vitamin. For example, we’re born with calcium in our bones and as we age, our natural reserves of calcium deplete. Much in the same way that we’re encouraged to start taking calcium supplements to keep our bones strong, we also need to supplement our natural reserves of CBD as we get older to help keep our bodies in balance. CBD is a major non-psychoactive component of cannabis which helps shrink inflammation and reduce pain without inducing the euphoric effects of THC*.
As with any herbal supplement, the effects (and the amount you need to experience those benefits) can vary based on your own body constitution (prakriti) but here (see below) are some of the proven researched effects of CBD. Our Ayurvedic herbal formulas can be combined with our CBD products to enhance the purpose of your healing and to promote your yoga practice.
CBD side effects? There have been no significant central nervous system side effects, or effects on vital signs or mood among people who use CBD either slightly or heavily.
How fast does CBD oil work?Dependent on formula, dosage, the disease process, and the expectations. Some people notice the calming and relaxing effect of the CBD within 15 minutes when administered orally under the tongue. If you use CBD for other reasons, the medical effect may take longer. For the healing of more chronic or long term symptoms, results can take up to two weeks.
If you don’t already know, CBD is derived from marijuana which was actually mentioned in the sacred texts of India known as the Vedas. India has long been regarded as a land of healing and especially in the development of using herbs for their medicinal purposes. Combining herbs and CBD has potentially played a part in creating sacred soma’s or elixirs thousands of years. Soma’s contain remarkable healing properties that promote longevity and the expansion of awareness. Mas Vidal considers combining CBD along with our unique ayurvedic formulas as specialized alchemy that promotes healing beyond the body and into the mind as expanded awareness and spiritual sensitivity.
Author and Vedic scholar Vamadeva Shastri states…The Atharva Veda (AV XI.6.15) specifically mentions five great plants of which Soma is the best, including marijuana, barley, and darbha (kusha or durva), showing that many plants had Soma-like qualities. Here Soma is again connected with another type of reed (darbha, Saccharum cylindricum), which could have easily been pressed to get a juice, much like sugarcane. Soma is also connected with marijuana, suggesting that mind-altering plants were regarded as different types of Soma. Soma is in other places connected with kushta (Saussurea lappa), a kind of spicy nervine, and with the Ashvattha fig tree and said to grow in the Himalayas in the Atharva Veda (AV XIX.39.5, 6).
