We are proud to offer our patients Ultra Premium Hemp Oil Supplements! With surging popularity in the media, you may have heard of some of the uses of CBD, or hemp oil, supplements. Choosing a proven and trusted, as well as legal, physician-backed and 100% THC free product was of utmost importance and we are proud to carry Pure Cannaceuticals brand. Pure Cannaceuticals PCRX line, created specifically for health care professionals, is in a class of its own with full-spectrum, zero-THC products enhanced with 99% pure Cannabidiol (CBD) and 99% pure Cannabigerol (CBG).
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis. It is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in hemp plans, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.
How Does CBD Work?
Cannabinoids, both those produced by the human body and those from the Cannabis plant, bind to receptors in the body’s Endocannabinoids system (ECS) to produce their effects. The two main receptors identified in the endocannabinoid system are CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are concentrated in the brain, central nervous system, connective tissues, glands and organs. CB2 receptors are found in peripheral organs and the immune system. CBD works, not by acting on CB1 or CB2 receptors directly, but by increasing the body’s ability to use its own Endocannabinoid, anandamide.
What Can It Be Used For?
Some of the benefits of CBD include: pain relief, reduced inflammation, reduced muscle spasms, stimulation of immune system, reduction of blood sugar levels, prevention of nervous system degeneration, treatment of psoriasis, reduced risk of artery blockage, slowed bacterial growth, anti-fungal effects and bone growth stimulation.
We carry the full line of Pure Cannaceutical’s medical grade hemp oil products including oil tinctures in both trial and full size, topicals in both trial size and full size, and gel capsules. Talk to Dr. McSpadden or Dr. Sharkey at your next appointment about how you might benefit from the use of hemp oil supplements!
