Natural Science

The origin of the CBD in your products is important, both in terms of how the hemp is farmed and how it’s processed. Harmful additives like pesticides, chemical fertilizers and heavy metals can undermine both the quality and safety of CBD.  

Using products from manufacturers who don’t care about how and where their CBD is sourced can undermine the reputation of your practice and potentially endanger the wellbeing of your patients. 

Because hemp is a hyper-accumulator, it readily absorbs everything, which is why high safety and quality standards need to be employed to protect your patients. Without proper safeguards, hemp plants can contain traces of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and heavy metals as well as highly inconsistent THC levels.  

Ensuring that the CBD in your products is ethically sourced, tested for quality and that the hemp is grown in compliance with the Agricultural Act of 2018, better known as the 2018 Farm Bill, are all factors to take into consideration when purchasing CBD products.

The Magic of Jojoba Oil

Natural science and natural products encompass a broad range of remedies and ingredients. These include non-toxic and oftentimes, plant-based ingredients, to soothe and relieve ailments. These include skin-soothing emollients, like jojoba oil, an oil that comes from the seeds of the Simmondsia Chinensis, a small bush that grows in hot, dry climates.  

Naturally-derived oils such as jojoba oil are used to soothe and moisturize the skin and can be found in topical products, including those of CBD CLINIC. The jojoba seed oil also enhances the absorption of active pharmaceutical ingredients and can also extend the shelf life of products. 

CBD CLINIC partners with Jojoba Desert, an Israeli company located in the Negev desert that is committed to sustainable growing practices and greening the desert. Jojoba Desert is a responsible leader in ethical business and makes 100% cold-pressed jojoba oil for use in topical products and cosmetics.

Jojoba oil can help increase moisturizing benefits due to its lipophilicity. Simply put, the chemical compounds in jojoba oil are able to dissolve in fats, oils, lipids, and solvents – this is what makes it so effective as an ingredient in natural science products, such as pain relief products.

CBD Overdosing And What You Need To Know

Safety is a primary concern when it comes to which pain-relief products you use in your practice. And as we continue to learn more about natural science and its benefits, it’s also important to look at the negatives that might be associated with natural science. 

Because of CBD’s association with marijuana, people may be hesitant to use products containing CBD, and may even worry about the possibility of overdosing.  However, when utilizing topical products with CBD, there is no need to worry about any THC interaction. All legal CBD products on the market are derived from hemp and contain trace amounts, 0.3% or less, THC. 

Additionally, a fatal overdose due to marijuana and THC is incredibly unlikely, but not impossible. Reports have highlighted cases where individuals have been hospitalized for the over-use of cannabis, but these are associated with THC. 

Generally, reports and studies have shown that CBD on its own is unlikely to be lethal, but it is possible that it may cause problems if the user has other health conditions,

When considering natural science for a holistic healthcare approach, asking patients about preexisting health conditions is extremely important. If patients have any underlying conditions, encourage them to consult a specialist before designing a holistic healthcare plan for them based on natural science products such as CBD.

CBD And Drug Testing

Drug testing is conducted for the detection of THC i.e. the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. Tests can be done in a variety of ways, including via urine, saliva, hair, and blood. Urine tests are the most common drug testing method as this is the primary way that THC is eliminated from the body. 

Because saliva tests are quick and non-invasive, these are also quite common. However, unlike urine, saliva can be a bit tricky, as there needs to be enough oral fluid to test and that’s not always possible. Plus, increases in the production of saliva because of food can affect the concentration of THC and disrupt the results. 

It is important to note that THC tests exist, but there are no CBD tests because of their lack of psychoactive effects.
