What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound derived from the cannabis plant. CBD has many benefits in humans, and is often used to promote a feeling of wellness or calm. Unlike its cousin THC, CBD does not get you “high,” and is a safe and non-addictive substance. More information about the history and uses of CBD can be found here.
*How Does CBD Work?*
CBD works through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is primarily responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body. Just like Goldilocks, our body doesn’t want its temperature to be too hot or too cold, blood sugar levels too high or too low, and so on. Cannabinoid receptors sit on the surface of cells and “listen” to conditions outside the cell. When these conditions become out of balance, the ECS kickstarts the body’s response and bring us back to the Goldilocks zone. The ECS has been shown to help maintain homeostasis in a huge range of bodily functions, including those tied to sleep, stress, memory, inflammation, appetite, metabolism, the immune system, the cardiovascular system, liver function, skin health, reproduction, pain, reproduction/fertility, exercise performance, and more.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of organic compound found in a variety of plants, fruits, vegetables, herbs, hemp and cannabis. Referred to as “the smell molecules of the world,” terpenes provide both smell and flavor which is why they are a major ingredient in essential oils. Terpenes have many therapeutic benefits of their own and affect the absorption of phytocannabinoids. For example, the terpene linalool is responsible for both the smell and calming effect associated with lavender. The terpene limonene is found in the skin of citrus fruit and is associated with the antifungal and antibacterial properties of citrus extracts. AMMAs products contain over a two dozen beneficial terpenes.
What is Broad Spectrum+?
Broad Spectrum+ is a new designation for hemp-derived products created by AMMA Healing. Until Broad Spectrum+ was invented, there were 3 main categories of hemp-derived products: Broad Spectrum, Full Spectrum, and CBD Isolate.
Broad Spectrum+: AMMA Healing’s extraction method is designed to remove 100% - yes _all_ - THC from our products without the use of solvents or heat. This preserves all of hemp’s other beneficial compounds in their natural form, unlike other Broad and Full Spectrum extractions which damage these compounds. This perfected method means you are getting the maximum benefit possible from a safe, pure product. It’s a difference you can feel.
CBD Isolate: This extract is 99-100% CBD only and removes all of hemp’s other beneficial compounds including THC.
Broad Spectrum: This extract removes THC and contains some or all of hemp’s beneficial compounds including CBD. However, most Broad Spectrum extraction methods involve harmful solvents and/or heat degradation of the beneficial compounds claimed to be in the final product. This means that the product is less effective and may be full of harmful chemicals.
Full Spectrum: This extract contains all of the hemp plant’s beneficial compounds including both CBD and up to 0.3% THC. Similar to Broad Spectrum, most Full Spectrum products suffer from similarly flawed extraction methods involving harmful solvents and heat degradation. In addition, the presence of THC can cause unwanted psychoactive effects and cause the user to fail drug tests that check for THC.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex collection of cell receptors, discovered by researchers in the early 1990s. Experts are still exploring the full significant of the ECS, but so far we know it plays an important role in regulating many functions, including sleep, mood, appetite, immunity, metabolism, and memory.
The ECS is primarily responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids which work with the ECS to regulate our bodies and support homeostasis. Our body doesn’t want its temperature to be too hot or too cold, blood sugar levels too high or too low, and so on. Cannabinoid receptors sit on the surface of cells and “listen” to conditions outside the cell. When these conditions become out of balance, the ECS kickstarts the body’s response and bring us back to homeostasis. *Se*
What is the Entourage Effect?
The Entourage Effect is a description for the phenomena in which the spectrum of cannabis compounds work synergistically to provide greater benefits than each compound individually. Each unique strain of the hemp plant contains a variety of beneficial compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. While each of these compounds has benefits when consumed individually, the entourage effect proposes that when combined together, the resulting benefits are much greater than the sum of their individual parts. This is why AMMA’s products contain over 140 of these beneficial compounds, all working together to promote maximal healing.
What is nanoemulsified CBD?
Nanoemulsions are an advanced delivery system designed to improve the absorption of beneficial compounds and decrease any side effects.
Nanotechnology is proven in numerous published scientific studies, researched by pharmaceutical companies and so far over 60 nano drug applications have been approved by FDA. Nanoemulsified CBD is created by exposing CBD to ultrasound waves, as a way of making the CBD particle size much smaller. This decreased particle size allows CBD to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the mucous membranes of your mouth and esophagus, and allows you to begin feeling the effects much faster. Normal CBD tinctures are absorbed in the small intestine and need to pass through the liver. This longer absorption process results in less absorption of the product, and can take between 30 minutes and 2 hours for you to feel the full effects.
Will it Get Me High?
No. The cannabis plant has two main cannabinoids: CBD and THC. THC is the cannabinoid associated with the feeling of being “high,” while CBD is non-intoxicating and has no unwanted psychoactive effects. All of our products contain 0.0% THC, and are certified by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. So while many of users users report our product gives them a feeling of relaxation and overall well-being, it will absolutely not get you high.
Will AMMA products Show Up on a drug test for THC?
Likely not, but we are legally unable to confirm the outcome of any drug tests while using our product, and individuals should always exercise caution if they are concerned about triggering a false positive result. Recreational drug tests are testing for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, THC-COOH, or its metabolites). Because all AMMA products contain 0.0% THC, they will not cause your test to show positive for tetrahydrocannabinol.
Barry Sample, senior director of science and technology at Quest Diagnostics, the largest administrator of drug tests in the U.S. has stated “[T]here isn’t going to be a laboratory analytical false positive confusing CBD with a THC metabolite.” However there is at least one 2012 study showing that outdated lab tests could not differentiate THC and CBD with 100% accuracy. So while AMMA’s products will not show positive for tetrahydrocannabinol, as with all hemp products there is a chance that consumption could trigger a positive drug test and you should make your own decision in consultation with your doctor or employer if this is a concern.
How do I Use your PRoduct?
1. Using the dropper, drop the proper amount of oil under your tongue (the correct amount for your particular product is listed on the bottle). 2. Wait 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow the phytocannabinoids to absorb sublingually, which allows for faster absorption. 3. Swallow and let the oil work its magic.
Apply AMMA Salve to the desired area of the skin. Only apply the salve topically, do not ingest it, and keep away from the eyes and mucous membranes.
AMMA Soft Gels:
We recommend taking the curcumin and melatonin softgels together—one in the morning, and one in the evening. Our formulas combined are designed to work synergistically to provide a perfect daily dose of wellness.
Curcumin: Take one capsule daily in the morning Melatonin: Take one capsule daily before bed. the timing for taking the product depends on your goals. If you have trouble falling asleep, then consume 30-45 minutes before bed. If you are a night owl who wants to begin falling asleep earlier, then consume 1.5-2hrs before bedtime. This product will work more effectively when combined with proper sleep hygiene. You will want to avoid eating or drinking (especially alcohol) close to your bedtime. Your sleep will also improve if you limit exposure to artificial light (especially from TV/Electronics) before bed. Finally, you want to sleep in a room that is completely dark, and set to a cool temperature.
