A number of studies have suggested extremely positive results using CBD to treat anxiety and depression. CBD can help support a buoyant mood by positively interacting with the brain's dopamine and serotonin receptors, promoting feelings of well-being and cheerfulness.
CBD promotes a mental state of calm; it’s a powerful herbal tool for turning the volume down on anxiety, managing stress, and getting restful sleep.
CBD hemp flower legally cannot contain more than 0.3% THC, the component of cannabis that typically creates the intoxicating "high." That means you get the healing benefits of the hemp plant, while maintaining a clear, lucid mind.
Get it On
Humans have benefited from cannabis' aphrodisiac effects for thousands of years. Applied to the skin, CBD increases blood flow to the genitals for heightened stimulation and sensitivity. CBD's anti-inflammatory effects relieve pain and sexual discomfort, and its calming effects soften the mental barriers to pleasurable intimacy.
Ask the Priestess
First, let’s define our terms.
CBD: short for cannabidiol, a chemical compound naturally found in the hemp plant.
Hemp: cannabis that has less than the federal legal limit of 0.3% THC (the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that gets you high).
Full-spectrum CBD: CBD with all of the beneficial compounds that naturally occur in the hemp plant, like cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
We never use CBD isolates or broad-spectrum CBD because these are often created using harsh chemical extraction methods which separate the CBD from the other beneficial compounds in the cannabis plant. Instead, we use heat extraction to extract full-spectrum CBD from the whole hemp plant. This means that you get to experience the full benefits of CBD with the added "entourage effect" of the naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids (like CBN and CBG) found in the whole plant. As herbalists, we trust in the intelligence of the whole plant, and will almost always advise consumers to choose full-spectrum CBD over CBD isolates and broad-spectrum CBD. Like humans, the whole plant is also greater than the sum of its parts!
All of our products are formulated by an herbalist, using intuitive plant wisdom, generations of herbalist tradition, and the latest cannabis science to guide our recipes. We make every effort to be transparent in our labeling; while our formulations are proprietary, we believe in full disclosure of our ingredients so you can make an informed decision about what you put in and on your body. We source our materials from reputable suppliers of herbs, oils, butters, and waxes. When possible, we use certified organic ingredients and sustainable manufacturing, and all our products are tested for potency by a third party independent laboratory. Our small-batch process means that we closely monitor quality at each step of the process. Certificates of Analysis are available here and also by scanning the QR code on your product's packaging.
All of our packaging lists suggested doses, but for CBD oil drops we suggest starting with 15 - 20mg and adjusting based on how you feel. The more you experiment and stay attuned to your body’s responses, the more you’ll understand how much you personally need to support your wellness. As always, start small and work your way up—the good news is that it's impossible to overdose on this plant.
Start with you. Ask yourself, “How do I want to feel?” “How do I like to consume?” If you enjoy rolling up or vaping, we suggest trying our Herbal Smoke Blends. If you’re looking for the benefits of CBD without smoke, try our CBD Drops. Many of our products were designed to be consumed together for maximum benefits, like our aphrodisiac line: Enjoy our Pleasure: Hemp Flower Herbal Smoke Blend with your partner, then use our Rouse: CBD Arousal Oil during foreplay and our Drip: CBD Lubricating Intimacy Oil during the main event. For our friends managing menstrual discomfort, our Grace: Menstrual Support Hemp Herbal Tea and Relief: Menstrual Support CBD Herbal Tincture pair well together to manage cramping and discomfort.
THC and CBD are simply different compounds from the same cannabis plant, which interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system in different ways. THC is the compound known for the “high”; it produces mildly mind-altering psychoactive effects that are often appealing, depending on the consumer. CBD is non-intoxicating, but produces gentle psychoactive effects that can make you feel calm, relaxed, or sleepy (in higher doses). Since CBD is great for bringing you back down to earth when you get a little too elevated, we recommend including it in your cannabis consumption for a safer, more balanced experience. CBD also is a powerful anti-inflammatory when used topically or ingested.
Because plants love playing together! Plants have properties that are enhanced by being combined with other plants. When we make formulations from an herbalist perspective, we consider the formula’s purpose and the parts of the body/mind/spirit that it should affect, and we add supporting herbs to complement or activate the primary ingredients. In our Alchemy: CBD Oil Drops, for example, CBD oil alone would definitely help promote calm, reduce inflammation, and manage pain. But the addition of lemon balm—another nervine (an herb that supports the nervous system)—compounds the calming effects of the CBD, while the peppermint—also a nervine—acts both as a catalyst that helps drive the CBD throughout the system and also enhances the final flavor. (Since even the best medicine is no good if you don’t want to take it). The herbs we select boost the effects of the CBD, and help create more well-rounded results. Many herbs also have aromatic qualities for multi-sensory experience. Mixing and matching synergistic herbs is a really fun and interesting way to uplevel cannabis consumption!
