Finding your Zen with Hemp CBD oil

November 16, 2018

You have certainly heard about the medical benefits of marijuana. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the compound that has been found to help people with many ailments, and fortunately it is found in both the marijuana and hemp cannabis plants.

Why hemp?

The benefit of extracting CBD from the hemp plant is that it contains only trace amounts (if any) of THC, the psychoactive property which is abundant in marijuana. Hemp only has 0.3% THC and most hemp CBD oils are extracted to contain no THC at all. With this method you get all the benefits of the oil without any of the high.

Another benefit of hemp: It’s legal in all states. This means you don’t have to worry about how you get it, just, like all supplements, the quality of it.

Benefits of CBD oil

Treating ailments with marijuana is not a new thing. It has been used for thousands of years, of course we didn’t always know why it worked! For those that find relief with CBD oil, the benefits can be many:

  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Depression
  • Migraines
  • Epilepsy
  • Insomnia
  • Reduce side effects of cancer treatments
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes

You can find out more about the here, and we’d recommend you search online and talk to your doctor for specific benefits relating to your ailments.

Sourcing Hemp CBD oil

Just like sourcing your food, finding the best hemp CBD oil is equally important. If pesticides are used in the growing process, then those too will be condensed when the oil is extracted. Luckily, we have a lot of experience in vetting farms and producers for all the other foods we offer, so we put that talent to work when looking for the best hemp farm.

We found Ambary Gardens, a farm in Colorado that not only grows their own hemp according to organic standards, but they also process it themselves.

Ambary Gardens is all about organic growing techniques. A proprietary blend of essential oils replaces the need for pesticides. Our plants are never fed with nutrient blends. We re-amend on site and reuse our soil. Each plant is cared for by hand by cannabis growing professionals who have years of experience. A high CBD/low THC genetic allows for an extremely high production rate of non-psychoactive cannabinoids per square foot. Expert growers strive to make the entire system a closed loop. We reuse and recycle as much as possible in order to promote a culture of sustainability.”

Like all our farms, you can visit and tour it yourself if you find yourself in Colorado.

How we sell it

At Bon Vivant we sell CBD oil in two ways:

  • Hemp water from Ambary Gardens: this is a bottle of water that they have already infused with hemp cbd. It’s an easy, on the go, way to get the benefits.
  • 1 dose in a drink: We offer Ambary Garden’s Full Spectrum Water Soluble CBD extract. Just ask us to add one dose to your favorite drink. It’s as easy as that!
