For many years, Quarter Moon has carried candles, lotions, lip balms, essential oils and other personal natural products that soothe the senses and promote well being. We carry Earthly Body, a natural brand of hemp oil based lotions and lip balms which we love. Some of our customers asked about other hemp products, especially CBD oils for their many health benefits and so we began investigating the possibilities.
We are proud to announce that we were recently approved to carry Charlotte’s Web CBD Products. Hemp CBD oil is completely legal as it is derived solely from hemp plants. There is no prescription required. It is not psychoactive-i.e.–it does not get you high.This full spectrum oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant, known for its exceptionally nutritious and rich healthy fats, protein and many minerals.
Quality CBD is an effective form of alternative natural treatment to many ailments and illnesses including depression, anxiety, muscle inflammation from exercise and arthritis. Most users of CBD find that it gives them a sense of calm. We chose Charlotte’s Web as it leads the industry in quality, safety, consistency and social responsibility. We carry oils, capsules and topical balms. We hope for good health to be more accessible and so we are offering 15% off any Charlotte’s Web products when you mention this blog post.
Following is Q & A information about Hemp CBD from the Stanley Brother’s website:
Why does hemp extract work?
Hemp extract comes from the aerial parts of the plant – stems, leaves, flowers. It’s here that we find beneficial phytocompounds called phytocannabinoids. One phytocannabinoid in particular- CBD or cannabidiol – gets a lot of attention for its benefits to the human body. That is because CBD and the other phytocannabinoids integrate into an internal system called the Endocannabinoid System. The purpose of this network of receptors in the bodies of all mammals is to keep them functioning and in good health. Our body can produce its own cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) to help keep everything in balance, but external toxins, poor diet, and different lifestyle factors can affect how they work in the body, so supplementing with a phytocannabinoid is an easy way to keep up good health.
How does Charlotte’s Web work?
CBD can assist in many healthy processes within the body, and pairing cannabidiol with its fellow phytocannabinoids —all naturally occurring in hemp — can support the body even further. Scientists named this “The Entourage Effect.” This means that while taking CBD on its own can help support health, additional phytocompounds work synergistically to maximize the positive benefits within CBD in the body.
Will it work for me?
Yes. The reason we can say this with such certainty is because of some basic human biology. Hemp extract and phytocannabinoids integrate with our internal Endocannabinoid System. This network of receptors exists in our immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs to support major bodily processes. Hemp’s phytocannabinoids, like CBD, fit into the cannabinoid receptors of the Endocannabinoid System, much like a key fits into a lock to “unlock” health benefits.
What do people use Charlotte’s Web for?
The benefits of CBD hemp extract are many, though our bodies are unique, as is the ways that we treat them — from the food we eat to the way we sleep, rest, and work — everyone experiences something a little different. Some of the most common uses for Charlotte’s Web are for relief from everyday stresses, help in supporting restful sleep, recovery from exercise-induced inflammation, and to bring about a sense of calm and focus.*
What is in Charlotte’s Web CBD hemp extract?
In short, good things from the earth. We use limited, select ingredients to ensure you have the absolute best hemp extract supplement possible. Every one of our products contains a broad range of phytocannabinoids and other phytocompounds (like terpenes and flavonoids) to support your body fully, making Charlotte’s Web more than just CBD.
