Hemp/Cannabis

The most common use for Cannabis/Hemp in the United States is for pain control. While Cannabis isn’t strong enough for severe pain (for example, post-surgical pain or a broken bone), it is quite effective for the chronic pain that plagues millions of Americans, especially as they age. Part of its allure is that it is clearly safer than opiates (it is impossible to overdose on and far less addictive) and it can take the place of NSAIDs such as Advil or Aleve, if people can’t take them due to problems with their kidneys or ulcers or GERD.

Organic Olive Oil (First Cold Press)

First cold pressed is the only true way to make delicious high purity extra virgin olive oil. Producers of low-quality olive oils will press their olives multiple times at high heats. This kind of extraction approach yields more oil out of the olives. However, this process also destroys a lot of the nutrition in the olives and creates a lower quality olive oil. Manufacturers who take this approach are looking to sell an inferior and cheaper product to generate higher profits. They are not focused on creating the best olive oil for consumers.

  • “First pressed” – means the olives were crushed and pressed only one time. The olive oil extracted from the first pressing is of the highest quality and purity.

  • “Cold pressed” – means that the olives never exceed a certain temperature during the entire pressing process– around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping the olives cooler ensures maximum quality. Heating produces lower quality olive oil.

Associated benefits for Olive Oil (First Cold Press)

  • Source of Antioxidants and Healthy Fats

  • Great Vitamin Content (Vitamin A, D, E, and K.)

  • Antibacterial Effects

  • Moisturizing effects

  • Helps improve Blood functions

Essential Oils

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. The oils capture the plant's scent and flavor, or "essence." Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence. Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing. Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that's ready for use. There are more than 90 types of essential oils, each with its own unique smell and potential health benefits.

Here's a list of 10 popular essential oils and the health claims associated with them:

  • Peppermint: used to boost energy and aid digestion

  • Lavender: used to relieve stress

  • Sandalwood: used to calm nerves and help with focus

Alfalfa Plant

The plant, which grows 30–90 cm (1–3 feet) tall, arises from a much-branched crown that is partially embedded in the surface layer of soil. As the plant develops, numerous stems bearing trifoliolate leaves (compound leaves with three leaflets) arise from the crown buds. Racemes of small flowers arise from the upper axillary buds of the stems. In sunny regions with moderate heat, dry weather, and pollinating insects, these flowers can abundantly produce corkscrew-coiled legumes containing two to eight or more seeds. Similar to many other members of Fabaceae, alfalfa plants house symbiotic soil bacteria (rhizobia) in their root nodules to “fix” nitrogen from the air into the soil, thus making it accessible to other plants. When grown as a cover crop or as part of a crop rotation, alfalfa improves the soil nutrient levels and lessens the need for synthetic fertilizers.

Associated Benefits for Alfalfa Plant:

  • Appetite Suppressant

Cinnamon

Cinnamon (/ˈsɪnəmən/ SIN-ə-mən) is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snackfoods, tea and traditional foods.

The term "cinnamon" also is used to describe its mid-brown colour. Cinnamon is the name for several species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae. [1] Only a few Cinnamomum species are grown commercially for spice. Cinnamomum verum is sometimes considered to be "true cinnamon", but most cinnamon in international commerce is derived from the related species Cinnamomum cassia, also referred to as "cassia".[2][3] In 2016, Indonesia and China produced 75% of the world's supply of cinnamon.

Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is an essential oil with a fresh camphoraceous odor and a colour that ranges from pale yellow to nearly colourless and clear.[1] It is derived from the leaves of the tea tree, Melaleuca alternifolia, native to Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. The oil comprises many constituent chemicals and its composition changes if it is exposed to air and oxidizes. Commercial use of tee tree oil began in the 1920s, pioneered by the entrepreneur Arthur Penfold. As of 2017 the global tea tree oil market was valued at US$39 million.[2] As a traditional medicine, it is typically used as a topical medication in low concentrations for the attempted treatments of skin conditions, but there is little evidence of efficacy.[3][4][5] Tea tree oil is claimed as useful for treating dandruff, acne, lice, herpes, insect bites, scabies, and skin fungal or bacterial infections.[4][5][6] However, there is not enough evidence to support any of these claims due to the small amount of research conducted on the topic.[4][7] Tea tree oil is neither a patented product nor an approved drug. [5] It is poisonous if consumed by mouth, and unsafe to use on children.

Valerian is most commonly used for sleep disorders, especially the inability to sleep (insomnia). Valerian is also used orally for anxiety and psychological stress, but there is limited scientific research to support these uses. In manufacturing, the extracts and oil made from valerian are used as flavoring in foods and beverages. Valerian (Valeriana officinalis), also known as all-heal or garden heliotrope, is a flowering plant native to Europe and parts of Asia. Since ancient times, the root of this plant has been used to treat insomnia, nervousness, trembling, headaches, and heart palpitations [1]. In the US, valerian root is mainly sold as a sleep aid, while in Europe it is used to treat restlessness, tremors, and anxiety. Valerian flowers have a delicate scent once used in perfumes. Valerian root, however, has a very strong, earthy smell. This is because of the volatile oils and other compounds responsible for its sedative effects

How does it work? 

Valerian seems to act like a sedative on the brain and nervous system. Alternative practitioners believe that valerian root can treat a variety of health conditions, including insomnia, anxiety, headaches, digestive problems, menopause symptoms, and post-exercise muscle pain and fatigue​

Ashwagandha Root

Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine practiced in India can be traced back to 6000 BC . For most of these 6000 years Ashwagandha has been used as a Rasayana. The root of Ashwagandha is regarded as tonic, aphrodisiac, narcotic, diuretic, anthelmintic, astringent, thermogenic and stimulant. The root smells like horse (“ashwa”), that is why it is called Ashwagandha (on consuming it gives the power of a horse). It is commonly used in emaciation of children (when given with milk, it is the best tonic for children), debility from old age, rheumatism, vitiated conditions of vata, leucoderma, constipation, insomnia, nervous breakdown, goiter etc.

In Sanskrit, Ashwagandha means “smell of horse”. Meaning this herb imparts the strength and vigor of a stallion. Ashwagandha helps protect your central nervous system. And is a promising alternative treatment for a variety of degenerative brain diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

As an antioxidant, Ashwagandha seeks out and destroys free radicals. Free radicals have been implicated in many age-related diseases. There’s even some emerging evidence that Ashwagandha offers anti-cancer benefits.

 

How Ashwagandha benefits your brain -

  • Reduce Stress: Ashwagandha helps reduce anxiety and depression. It reduces the stress hormone cortisol, lowers blood sugar levels, and improves lipid profiles.

  • Neuronal Regeneration: Ashwagandha helps regenerate axons and dendrites of brain nerve cells. And helps reconstruct synapses, the junctions where nerve cells communicate with other cells. Boosting memory and restoring neural networks affected by neurodegenerative disease.

  • Neurotransmitters: Ashwagandha extract inhibits acetylcholinesterase. The enzyme responsible for breaking down the key neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Boosting memory, learning and cognition.

  • It is used as an ancient medicinal herb.

  • It can reduce blood sugar levels.

  • It might have anticancer properties - There’s currently no human research that suggests ashwagandha has anti-cancer properties, but animal and test-tube studies are worth mentioning because they’re so promising. The programmed death of cancer cells (or any other cells) is called apoptosis, and one study found that withaferin, a compound in the Ayurvedic herb, makes cancer cells less resistant to apoptosis as well as disrupting their growth (Nishikawa, 2015).

  • It can reduce cortisol levels - Cortisol is known as a stress hormone given that your adrenal glands release it in response to stress, as well as when your blood sugar levels get too low.

  • It may help reduce anxiety and stress - Ashwagandha is perhaps best known for its ability to reduce stress. Researchers have reported that it blocked the stress pathway in the brains of rats by regulating chemical signaling in the nervous system (16Trusted Source).

  • It may reduce symptoms of depression.

  • It can boost testosterone and increase fertility in men - Sperm count and motility increased in infertile men treated with ashwagandha powder in one study that included 75 fertile and 75 infertile men, and their oxidative stress, an imbalance between damaging free radicals and health-boosting antioxidants in the body, also decreased (Ahmad, 2010). Subjects’ testosterone levels also increased.

  • It may increase muscle mass and strength - Although it was a small study, another showed that supplementing with ashwagandha may prove beneficial to those on a weight lifting regimen (Wankhede, 2015). At the end of the 8 week study, participants taking the supplement had increased their bench press by 176% more than those taking the placebo.

Black seeds and their oil have a long history of folklore usage in Indian and Arabian civilization as food and medicine. The seeds have been traditionally used in Southeast Asian and the Middle East countries for the treatment of several diseases and ailments including asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases. Its many uses have earned Nigella the Arabic approbation ‘Habbatul barakah’, meaning the seed of blessing. Externally the oil is used as an antiseptic and local anesthetic. Roasted black seeds are given internally to stop the vomiting

A key component of black seed oil, thymoquinone, has demonstrated antioxidant properties that may help relieve inflammation. Many advocates of black seed oil use it on their hair.

Improve Hair And Scalp Health

Regular application of sativa oil may significantly improve scalp health by combating dandruff and scalp irritation. It is also known to prevent and even reverse graying of hair by preserving pigmentation in hair follicles.

Fights Skin Infections

Common skin infections, particularly psoriasis and eczema, can be resolved by applying the oil on your skin. This is because the oil has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and may also soothe irritation on the skin, leaving it soft and moisturised.
