1. The Endocannabinoid
System in your body
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system that regulates many key human functions and helps the body maintain homeostasis, a state of balance and stability needed to operate properly. The ECS regulates functions such as sleep, memory, appetite, mood, and fertility.
2. Cannabinoids and
Since the cannabinoids found in cannabis, such as THC and CBD, are chemically similar to the endocannabinoids found in our bodies, they can interact with the receptors in the ECS and produce beneficial outcomes such as pain reduction and sleep aid.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive compound that is used to help with symptoms like spasticity, low appetite, and insomnia. Cannabidiol (CBD), which doesn’t produce a psychoactive effect, is often used to help manage symptoms like seizures, inflammation, pain, and anxiety.
High-CBD formulations have much higher CBD content by weight – up to 20 times the amount of THC. Clinical research suggests that High-CBD formulations can have a positive impact on symptoms associated with the following conditions: Epilepsy (and other seizure disorders) and Autism.
Balanced formulations have relatively similar levels of CBD and THC by weight. Clinical research suggests that balanced formulations can have a positive impact on symptoms associated with the following conditions:
Autism, Multiple Sclerosis, Spasticity, Terminal Cancer, ALS, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
We develop our medicine in tincture form and spray form, both applications serving a specific purpose. Your physician can also help you determine which method of delivery is best for you.
Tinctures are designed to efficiently and quickly deliver the dosage to your system. We recommend taking your dosage by applying the dropper under the tongue or in the cheek pouch, allowing the medicine to soak for 1-2 minutes before swallowing.
ORAL MOUTH SPRAY
Sprays are an alternative to delivering the medicine when sublingual tinctures present a challenge. Patients seeking a more reliable delivery, with a decreased risk of spillage, have reported this is a much easier method to administer to younger children.
Lozenges reduce the oil intake while mitigating dexterity challenges caused by a traditional dropper for patients suffering from movement disorders. To take the lozenge, insert it into your mouth and allow it to fully dissolve without chewing, crushing or swallowing.
