Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin Tincture Used in Two Research Studies with Amazing Results

Twice this year Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin tincture has been used in research studies.  The tests revealed interesting and amazing results.  In February, a qEEG (brainwave test) was conducted.  The test recorded a patient’s brainwaves before and after the use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD.  A second research project was conducted over spring term at Indian River College in Florida.  This project took HeLa cancer cells and applied different strengths of Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD to the cancer cell samples.  Both tests had positive results.  A brief explanation and summary of each test follow.

February 2019 – qEEG Test Conducted Using Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD

An EEG or Electroencephalography measures the electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp, which reflects the brainwaves.  A qEEG or Quantitative Electroencephalogram goes further, measuring and analyzing electrical activity, creating a brain map of the activity, or a topical snapshot of brain patterns.  There are many studies published in the US National Library of Medicine suggesting that these maps can help aid in evaluating several medical conditions.

How is the test done?

An electro cap, containing small electrodes is placed on the head to measure the electrical patterns while the patient sits quietly with eyes open or closed.  For this particular test data was captured before the use of the product and after taking the Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin complex.  Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma waves were measured both before and after the use of the product.

How do brainwaves appear on a Brain Map?  As color-coded Z-scores! 

Using the Quantitative EEG or qEEG test, it is possible to measure neural patterns to see how the brain is functioning.  Results from a qEEG are presented as Z-scores.  These scores represent the difference in wave frequency using before and after snapshots.  The Z-scores are color-coded to show increased or decreased activity.  For instance, a score of 0 represents the norm and is color-coded green, red indicates excessive activity, orange, and yellow lessor activity, and blue shows decreased activity.  Below is one of the images taken from the results.

Brain Wave picture

The qEEG comparison report and video provide amazing results! 

The report in the video shows a significant change in brainwave activity and lowered z-scores after using Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin tincture.  Z-scores are indicators of activity, with zero being the norm or “mean,” the higher the z-score, the more noteworthy the health condition.  A lower or zero score is optimal.  Several conditions can be measured with this test, including but not limited to migraines, ADHD, Dyslexia, anxiety and depression, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, impaired memory, and more.

The following video provides a 15-minute summary provided by the lab, explaining the process, measurements, and remarkable results.

June 2019 – HeLa Cancer Cell Report / Research using Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin

This research performed by a team of students at Indian River State College is incredibly amazing.  The student’s hypothesis: “Application of CBD/Curcumin would inhibit the growth of HeLa cell culture because of CBD’s anti-proliferative effects on cancer types, and curcumin’s tumorigenesis pathway suppression.”

They followed the HeLa cell protocol before treatment, sterilized Murphy’s CBD/Curcumin complex and stored until needed for application, and then began treating each row [pictured below] with different concentrations of the sterilized complex.

You’ll see in the picture several columns, each well contained roughly 2 ml of HeLa cell culture, mixed with bovine serum for enrichment.  They filter-sterilized the Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/curcumin complex used before treatment.  The first column was the control sample, the second column was treated with 5 ul of the CBD/Curcumin complex, the third with 10 ul of the complex, and the fourth with 20 ul of the complex.  ul stands for microliter.

For clarification, according to the John Hopkins Medicine website, HeLa cells are:

Among the important scientific discoveries of the last century was the first immortal human cell line known as “HeLa”  — a remarkably durable and prolific line of cells obtained during the treatment of Henrietta’s cancer by Johns Hopkins researcher Dr. George Gey in 1951.

Although these were the first cells that could be easily shared and multiplied in a lab setting, Johns Hopkins has never sold or profited from the discovery or distribution of HeLa cells and does not own the rights to the HeLa cell line. Rather, Johns Hopkins offered HeLa cells freely and widely for scientific research. (1)

A little more detail about these “immortal cells.”  This is the oldest and most commonly used human cell line.  The line was derived from cervical cancer cells taken on February 8, 1951, from Henrietta Lacks, a patient who died of cancer on October 4, 1951. (2)

You’ll notice in the following images that the results showed visibly less HeLa cell growth and inhibition with the 20 ul concentration.  There was not much of a difference between the 5 ul and the 10 ul dosages.  The images below provide more detail, much more clear, and appear in the order of “control,” then from lower to higher CBD/Curcumin concentrations applied.

The first image – control:

The second & third:  you can see a bit of the tincture spots:

And in the last photo: you can see the difference in cell count:

Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin inhibited cell growth in the HeLa cancer cells.  The 20 ul dilution wells had visibly less cell growth in comparison to control, 5 ul and 10 ul wells.  The students assumed that the CBD/Curcumin may have silenced the Id-2 and Id-1 gene, which slows cancer development or inhibits the epidermal growth factor.

An interesting side-note, another group of students in the same class used CBD oil, but they had a hard time because it wasn’t water-soluble, [like Murphy’s Natural Hemp].  They eventually had similar results, but according to my source, they had to use a ridiculously high concentration of the oil!  So the Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin is much more efficient and effective.

Based on both tests, continuous research using CBD for medicinal purposes should be considered.  Before using CBD with any other medications you may be taking, consult your physician.  For more information regarding this research, or to purchase Murphy’s Natural Hemp products, go to http://www.murphysnaturalhemp.com.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin used in a HeLa Cancer Cell Experiment

In this interview, Khalila Haque, who just completed her Bachelor’s in General Biology at Indian River State College,  shares the exciting results obtained using Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin tincture in treating HeLa cancer cells during lab research.

Me:  Good Morning Khalila, thanks so much for doing this interview with me, I know you’re buried in starting GRE studies and wrapping up school at the same time.  The research from your Cell Biology and Physiology Lab, done with HeLa cancer cells and Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin is incredibly amazing.  I know you were excited to see the results and share it with us.  Would you walk me through the steps?  

Khalila:  Sure,  first let me add that I was part of a team, Myron Clemons, myself, and another student.  Our hypothesis was that the “Application of CBD/Curcumin would inhibit the growth of HeLa cell culture because of CBD’s anti-proliferative effects on cancer types, and curcumin’s tumorigenesis pathway suppression.”

We followed the HeLa cell protocol prior to treatment, sterilized Murphy’s CBD/Curcumin complex and stored until needed for application, and then began treating each row [pictured below] with different concentrations of the sterilized complex. 

So, you’ll see in the picture [below] several columns, each well contained roughly 2 ml of HeLa cell culture, mixed with bovine serum for enrichment.  We filter sterilized the Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/curcumin complex before treatment.  The first column was our control, the second column was treated with 5 ul of the CBD/Curcumin complex, the third with 10 ul of the complex, and the fourth with 20 ul of the complex.  ul stands for microliter.

Me:  And for our readers, I’m going to stop for just a moment to clarify what HeLa cells are.  According to the John Hopkins Medicine website:

Among the important scientific discoveries of the last century was the first immortal human cell line known as “HeLa”  — a remarkably durable and prolific line of cells obtained during the treatment of Henrietta’s cancer by Johns Hopkins researcher Dr. George Gey in 1951.

Although these were the first cells that could be easily shared and multiplied in a lab setting, Johns Hopkins has never sold or profited from the discovery or distribution of HeLa cells and does not own the rights to the HeLa cell line. Rather, Johns Hopkins offered HeLa cells freely and widely for scientific research. (1)

I found a little more detail about these “immortal cells.”  This is the oldest and most commonly used human cell line.  The line was derived from cervical cancer cells taken on February 8, 1951 from Henrietta Lacks, a patient who died of cancer on October 4, 1951. (2) 

Me:  Continuing on, Khalila, tell me about this series of slides.

Khalila:  Sure, you’ll notice in the images that follow that the results showed visibly less HeLa cell growth, and inhibition with the 20 ul concentration.  There was not much of a difference between the 5 ul and the 10 ul dosages.  The images below provide more detail, much more clear, and appear in the order of “control,” then from lower to higher CBD/Curcumin concentrations applied. 

The first image – control:

The second & third:  you can see a bit of the tincture spots:

And in the last photo: you can see the difference in cell count:

Me:  So the Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin inhibited cell growth in the HeLa cancer cells?

Khalila:  Yes, that’s what we concluded.  The 20 ul dilution wells had visibly less cell growth in comparison to control, 5 ul and 10 ul wells. 

For our project, we assume it may silence the Id-2 and Id-1 gene, which slows cancer development, or inhibits the epidermal growth factor.  What’s awesome about this is that another group used CBD oil, but they had a hard time because it wasn’t water-soluble, [like Murphy’s Natural Hemp].  They eventually had similar results, but they had to use a ridiculously high concentration of the oil!  So the Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin is waaaay more efficient and effective.

Based on our results, continuous research should be considered on the properties of CBD and its inhibition of cancerous cell growth.  Not only has CBD shown benefit by possibly inhibiting Id-1 and Id2 gene expression, according to other research we have done, it can also be used to relieve side effects from chemotherapy, such as nausea and vomiting.  In addition, research on Curcumin has proven its anti-inflammatory activity.  This in combination with CBD should be further tested as it may drastically reduce inflammatory factors that lead to cancer development (Shruti, 2018).

Me:  This is exciting research you’ve shared with us.  Is there anything else you’d like to add about your work?  Has this project in any way influenced your opinion of CBD and it’s health benefits?  

Khalila:  Personally, this experiment backed up my initial opinion of CBD, and it’s possible anti-cancer properties.  I have read studies that have come up with similar results as well.  It would be interesting to see future research testing and its effects on specific cellular pathways.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD & Curcumin Lowers Brain Map Z-Scores!

How does CBD impact brainwaves?

With the explosion of CBD products available on the market today, it’s important that you purchase a product that will produce results.  Earlier this year, Murphy’s Natural Hemp teamed with an FDA approved lab to measure the effects our CBD/Curcumin product had on the brain, and the results were amazing!  First, what is a qEEG?  What’s a brain map?  How is it done, and what can it show?

qEEG  

Perhaps you’ve heard of an EEG or Electroencephalography.  The test measures the electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp, which reflects your brainwaves.  A qEEG or Quantitative Electroencephalogram goes further, measuring and analyzing electrical activity, creating a brain map of the activity, or a topical snapshot of brain patterns.  There are a number of studies published in the US National Library of Medicine suggesting that these maps can help aid in evaluating a number of medical conditions.

What are the categories of brainwaves & how are they measured?

Brainwaves are produced by repetitive patterns in the brain generated by our neurons communicating with each other.   Over the course of a 24-hour period, an individual will have a mix of brainwaves throughout all the different areas of the brain.  The speed of how fast waves travel, which is measured in Hertz (Hz), divides the waves into categories, fast to slow, depending on what the brain is doing:

— Gamma is the high-performance wave that helps process information quickly.  Its frequency range is 40 to 100 Hz.  High levels of Gamma waves indicate excessive levels of anxiety and stress, low levels may be indicators of depression, ADHD, and learning challenges.

— Beta is the at-work and alert wave that allows you to focus and solve problems.  Its frequency is 12 to 40 Hz.  High levels may indicate anxiety, not being able to relax, increased stress, and adrenaline highs.  Low levels may be indications for depression, poor cognitive ability, brain-fog, and lack of attention.

— Alpha waves are indicators of the relaxed or reflective state.  The frequency range is 8 to 12 Hz.  If there are high levels of Alpha waves, there could be an inability to focus, letting the mind drift into constant daydreaming, or being overly relaxed.  Low levels are indicators of anxiety, OCD, and stress.

— Theta are the drifting off feeling drowsy waves you feel when slowing down, relaxing or meditating.  Its frequency is 4 to 8 Hz.  High levels are indicators of ADHD, hyperactivity, impulsiveness, inability to focus and depression.  Low levels may indicate anxiety, stress, and emotional challenges.  Theta waves are also associated with lack of understanding with social cues, Dyslexia (L brain), and Fibromyalgia.

— Delta are deep sleep waves which contribute to restorative REM sleep and assist in building a healthy immune system.  Their frequency is 0 to 4 Hz.  High levels of Delta waves could indicate brain injuries, learning problems, severe ADHD, and the inability to think or focus.  Low levels indicate the inability for the brain and body to revitalize due to poor sleep.  Delta waves are also associated with migraine and Fibromyalgia.

The qEEG comparison report provides amazing results! 

The report shows a significant change in brainwave activity and lowered z-scores after using Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin tincture.  Z-scores are indicators of activity, with zero being the norm or “mean,” the higher the z-score, the more noteworthy the health condition.  A lower or zero score is optimal.  There are a number of conditions that can be measured with this test, including but not limited to migraines, ADHD, Dyslexia, anxiety and depression, Fibromyalgia, neuropathy, impaired memory, and more.

Delta Brainwave Result – Before & After Images

The first image below shows a Delta brainwave Z-score of 7.8 before the use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble CBD/Curcumin, which according to the lab indicates that this patient could be experiencing increased symptoms with Fibromyalgia, migraine, thinking or focusing, ADHD, and more.

Now compare this with the second image of the Delta brainwaves after the use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble CBD/Curcumin.  The Z-score has decreased to 3.9!  Remember a decrease in Z-score is a decrease in symptoms!  The physician who conducted this test was very impressed with the results.

Theta brainwaves also showed a reduction before and after use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin tincture, from 7.2 to 4.0.   This is good news for individuals looking for natural alternatives to prescription medications.  (Always consult with your doctor before combining or adding natural alternatives to your health care routine.)

How to Identify Good Quality CBD – The Short List

Oil-based CBD vs Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin

You’ve seen the hype, read plenty of articles, have seen it on the news, and have decided CBD may be beneficial for you.  Now.  Who to buy from?  How do you identify good quality CBD products?  Here’s the short list:

First, what does the company promote, and is the research valid?

CBD is being touted as a remedy for a wide range of medical conditions, everything from skin rashes to insomnia to cancer treatment.  Know the product!  Check out the company before you buy from them.  Now that hemp farming has exploded, and product production skyrocketed, there are hundreds, if not thousands of CBD products on the market.  In fact, according to Statista, consumer sales in the U.S. are predicted to reach “around 1.8 billion U.S. dollars by 2022.”(1)

After reading through a vendor’s CBD product claims, check out a few of their sources.  I know, it’s work, but if you’re going to spend hard-earned money, why not spend it wisely?  There should be research sources behind the articles, with references easily available.  If you still have questions, contact the company.  Do they respond quickly?  Or did you get lost in the business shuffle?  Purchase from a company you can trust, like Murphy’s Natural Hemp!

Second, how was the CBD extracted and does it contain other ingredients?

Can you trust that what’s on the label is a true reflection of what’s in the product?  Over 2015 through 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration sent out warning letters to several companies that market products containing CBD.  The FDA tested the chemical content of the CBD compounds in some of these products and found that many were mislabeled.  They, in fact, did not contain the amount of CBD printed on the labels. (2)  Additionally, they’ve recently sent out more letters, and according to their April 2, 2019 press release have scheduled, “a public hearing on May 31, as well as a broader opportunity for written public comment, for stakeholders to share their experiences and challenges with these products, including information and views related to product safety.”(3)

Another thing to take into consideration is how the CBD was extracted from the hemp.  There are several ways to extract CBD from the hemp plants:

  • Co2 Extraction – Safe and provides a pure end product
  • Olive Oil Extraction – Safe, however, the end product is perishable
  • Dry Ice Extraction – Easy to produce, however low quality
  • Solvent Extraction – Straightforward process, however, strips plant wax and could generate oil that contains contaminants

Murphy’s Natural Hemp uses the CO2 extraction method to pull CBD from the hemp plant.  CO2 under high pressure, using low temperatures pulls out CBD isolating and preserving its purity.  Once the CO2 is no longer under intense pressure, it simply evaporates, leaving no traces on the extraction itself.  The CO2 extraction method ensures high quality and a chemical, solvent-free CBD product.

Know what you are ingesting!  Be an informed consumer.  Check to be sure the product has been tested for potency, pesticides, bacteria, and other contaminants.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp must pass a thorough inspection for heavy metals, (arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead), microbiological contaminants (bacteria, yeast and molds), and VOC’s (propane, isobutane, butane, methanol, ethanol, acetone, isopropanol, acetonitrile, hexane, and heptane).  Test results are readily available to the consumer.

Third, does the CBD contain any THC?

CBD products may be isolates or full-spectrum.  Full-spectrum will contain less than .3% or trace amounts of THC, which is not considered enough to provide a user with any side effects that they may experience using other cannabis products.  Simply put, you will not get “high” from either the isolate or full-spectrum products.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp products are isolates, meaning they contain no tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.

Lastly, is it oil-based or water-based?

One of the main challenges with CBD is guaranteeing bioavailability of the active ingredient, especially when it has limited gastrointestinal permeability.  Many CBD companies who claim to have water-soluble products that use nano technology for their products.  The compound consists of small nano-size clusters of CBD molecules combined within an insoluble oil.  Eventually, all nano products separate, like oil and water… and further they will not increase in bioavailability while moving through the body’s system.  Ask the supplier if they’ve tested the absorption rate.  What is the percentage of the product that is absorbed by the body?

What water-soluble means is that the CBD is able to blend into water, like sugar in your lemonade or coffee.  Water-based and oil-based products react differently when it comes to being absorbed by the body.  Your body is composed of over 60% water.  Reports show that the body uses less than 10% of the active ingredients in an oil-based product.  Compare this to Murphy’s Natural Hemp water-soluble products, which utilize 90% or more of the active ingredients.

In an effort to build continued trust, and provide transparency to customers, Murphy’s Natural Hemp offers this very telling video demonstration, which compares their water-soluble product with several other CBD oil and water-based products on the market. Murphy’s Natural Hemp is “clearly” the better choice.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp blends CBD and Curcumin Isolates Together

Murphy’s Natural Hemp blends CBD with the powerhouse spice Curcumin, to make it one powerful complex!  Curcumin is one of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, which is harvested from the turmeric plant by grinding up its root.  The root contains a number of substances, many of which are in a group known as curcuminoids.  Curcumin is isolated from these curcuminoids and used in combination with CBD isolate in order to reap an increased number of health benefits from both substances.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp water-soluble, all-natural tinctures are clean, pure, and more bioavailable than any CBD oil product on the market.  For more information or to purchase one of their high-quality products, go to http://www.murphysnaturalhemp.com

Beneficial Effects on Brainwaves: Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble CBD/Curcumin

Before and After Using Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble CBD/Curcumin

Murphy’s Natural Hemp teamed with an FDA approved lab to run a case-study using the qEEG test in order to measure the effects our CBD/Curcumin product has on the brain.  During this particular case study, there appeared a consistent drop in wave Z-scores across all areas of the brain, especially in Delta, and Theta waves (illustration below).  A reduction in Z-score is an indicator of a reduction in the symptoms associated with the particular brain wave.

Before & After Images

The first image shows a Delta brainwave Z-score of 7.8 before the use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble CBD/Curcumin, which according to the lab indicates that this patient could be experiencing increased symptoms with Fibromyalgia, migraine, thinking or focusing, ADHD, and more.

Now compare this with the second image of the Delta brainwaves after the use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble CBD/Curcumin.  The Z-score has decreased to 3.9!  Remember a decrease in Z-score is a decrease in symptoms!  The physician who conducted this test was very impressed with the results.

Theta brainwaves also showed a reduction before and after the use of Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin tincture, from 7.2 to 4.0.   This is good news for individuals looking for natural alternatives to prescription medications.  A brief explanation of brainwave categories follows, along with the lab’s amazing summary video.

How do brainwaves appear on a Brain Map?

Using the Quantitative EEG or qEEG test, it is possible to measure neural patterns to see how the brain is functioning.  Results from a qEEG are presented as Z-scores.  These scores represent the difference in wave frequency using before and after snapshots.  The Z-scores are color-coded to show increased or decreased activity.  For instance, a score of 0 represents the norm and is color-coded green, red indicates excessive activity, orange, and yellow lessor activity, and blue shows decreased activity.

CBD & Pain Relief

Last fall of 2018, another person in my neighborhood was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation and joint pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).  I spoke with her about the drug treatment she was prescribed, as well as other natural remedies that she’s decided to use.

sitting in pain by Imani Clovis

Interview with Sue:

Me: Sue, thanks for sharing your story with me today.   Tell me about your journey and being diagnosed with RA.  What are the major symptoms of RA and what prescription drugs have you tried so far?  

Sue: Well, it started with feeling tired and having stiffness in my hands and knees.  I thought I was just doing too much so I cut back on some activities, but it continued.  As time went on, the joints in my fingers started swelling, and I had quite a bit of pain.  When I couldn’t get by with over-the-counter pain relievers anymore, I decided I’d better see a doctor.  Last fall, I was diagnosed with RA, and started on Methotrexate, which seemed to be effective, but it made me feel sick all the time.  Kind of like I had the flu every day with nausea and vomiting.  After a few weeks, I had to stop taking it.  Just made me too sick to function.  

Me: And you’ve gone back to see the doctor about a different medication? 

Sue: Not yet, I looked into what other medications are available and they all have major side effects.  I’d heard about CBD helping with inflammation and pain and decided to give it a try before I go on to another prescription medication.   

Me:  Are you using an under-the-tongue CBD oil tincture? 

Sue: Actually, I bought a CBD topical cream that I can rub into my joints, and then also use an under the tongue CBD tincture.  It’s been helping.

Me: What would you like others to know about natural remedy use and effectiveness? 

Sue: I’m definitely getting some pain relief.  I did find that it wears off just after mid-day, so I’m working on dosage and when to reapply or use the tincture again.  After the experience with vomiting every day with taking the prescription medication, in my opinion, I feel it’s better to use these remedies for awhile to see if I can manage the pain and inflammation naturally.  If this doesn’t work for me, then I’ll go back to my doctor.  Maybe a combination of prescription and CBD would work, I’d have to check with him.  But for now, this appears to be working, I just have to find the correct dosage.  I’ll keep you posted!

Me: Thanks for talking with me today Sue.  I appreciate your sharing and look forward to knowing more about how these natural remedies are working for you.  Also, I’m going to leave you with a brochure from a company I buy from, Murphy’s Natural Hemp.  They combine CBD with Curcumin, which is also known as a natural remedy that helps with inflammation and pain.  I’d love to get your feedback on the products. 

Sue:  Thank you!  I will definitely give them a try, and I’d be happy to talk with you about the results and give you my feedback. 

I’ll be following up with Sue in a month or two to see how she’s doing with the natural remedy approaches.  Stay tuned!  Sue is one of many individuals around the world who are turning to CBD for pain relief in dealing with RA and other medical conditions.

According to a 2018 study, which looked at “who, how, and why individuals are currently using CBD,” nearly 62% of the individuals responding reported using CBD to treat a medical condition, with pain, anxiety, and depression being at the top.  What I found most interesting about this study was that almost 36% of the people who responded, reported that CBD was all they needed.  They had no need for any other medication to treat their particular medical condition other than the CBD.  Only 4.3% reported that the CBD did not work well for them.

In addition, this same study reported: “Respondents selected “Other” 362 times. The most common “Other” conditions reported were neuropathy (n=48), autoimmune conditions (n=38), and fibromyalgia (n=37).”(1)

Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin Products – an isolate or a complex?

Simply,  it’s both!

Murphy’s Natural Hemp blends CBD and Curcumin isolates together into high quality, water-soluble complexes.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin: Cannabidiol or CBD is one of 113 identified cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa or the hemp plant.  The CBD is extracted from the plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids.

Now, add the Curcumin powerhouse spice.  Curcumin is one of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, which is harvested from the turmeric plant by grinding up its root.  The root contains several substances, many of which are in a group known as curcuminoids.  Curcumin is isolated from these curcuminoids and used in combination with our CBD isolate to reap the number of health benefits from both substances.

At Murphy’s Natural Hemp, our products are labeled “CBD and Curcumin isolates” to recognize the quality of the ingredients.  Our water-soluble, all-natural tinctures are clean, pure, and more bioavailable than any CBD oil product on the market.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sleep Aid: Our Sleep Aid product takes these same high-quality CBD and Curcumin isolates, and combines them with Melatonin, 5-HTP, GABA, into a pure water-soluble complex.  Our sleep aid tincture will help you get to sleep easily and aid you in getting a deeper sleep, leaving you more rested and prepared for the upcoming day.  Since its water-soluble it will easily dissolve, entering your system faster and absorbing more effectively.

Oil-based CBD does not dissolve in water.  However, you’ll find the term “water-soluble” is being widely used throughout the medical cannabis industry.  What water-soluble means is that the CBD can blend into water, like sugar in your lemonade or coffee.  Water-based and oil-based products react differently when it comes to being absorbed by the body.  Your body is composed of over 60% water.  Reports show that the body uses less than 10% of the active ingredients in an oil-based product.  Compare this to our water-soluble products, which utilize 90% or more of the active ingredients.

To build continued trust, and provide transparency to our customers, we offer this very telling video demonstration that compares our water-soluble product with other market oil or water-based CBD products. Murphy’s Natural Hemp is “clearly” the better choice.

The Benefits of Murphy’s Natural Hemp Combined CBD/Curcumin Tinctures

Cannibus 2 by Jose Luis Sanchez Pereyra

With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, Hemp has exploded in growth, production, and consumer use.  The farm bill did several things.  It provided subsidies for American farmers, reinforced locally grown foods, expanded trade opportunities, kept SNAP in place, and legalized the production of the hemp plant.  CBD or Hemp extract is a natural chemical compound that comes from the hemp or cannabis sativa plant.  It is one of over 100 such compounds, known as cannabinoids, that are found in the plant.

CBD Benefits

Studies have shown this cannabinoid to be beneficial for many health conditions, in particular reducing inflammation, treatment for pain, combating arthritis, reducing anxiety, treating sleep disorders and more.  Further, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects, so it does not get the user high.  What this means is that you can use the compound, and reap the health benefits with little or no impact on your day-to-day functioning.

Now, take the health benefits associated with CBD and combine them with the power of Curcumin.  How is Curcumin beneficial?  Read on.

Curcumin Benefits

Curcumin, in both Ayurveda (the traditional medicine of India) and Chinese medicine, has become a major player in holistic medicine.  One of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, it is harvested from the turmeric plant by grinding up its root.  In addition to being a spice used in cooking, Curcumin is also proving effective as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever.

According to the US National Library of Medicine, research of curcumin over the past half-century has shown promising effects in patients with various pro-inflammatory diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, ulcerative proctitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel disease, peptic ulcer, gastric ulcer, gastric inflammation, psoriasis, and lupus to name just a few.  Further studies are being conducted on the benefits of curcumin for reducing the speed of Alzheimer’s disease, improving heart and circulatory system function, and more.

Water-Soluble CBD & Curcumin Combined

CBD tincture-bottle-600x600-1Murphy’s Natural Hemp combines CBD and Curcumin in a water-soluble form, providing you with the numerous health benefits of both compounds.  Oil-based CBD does not dissolve in water.  Oily substances are repelled by water, which forces a separation of the ingredients.  However, you’ll find the term “water-soluble” is being widely used throughout the medical cannabis industry.  What water-soluble means is that the CBD can blend into water, like sugar in your lemonade or coffee.  Water-based and oil-based products react differently when it comes to being absorbed by the body.  Your body is composed of over 60% water.  Reports show that the body uses less than 10% of the active ingredients in an oil-based product.  Compare this to our water-soluble products, which utilize 90% or more of the active ingredients.

In short, Murphy’s Natural Hemp water-soluble, high-quality CBD/Curcumin combined products have:

  • Increased bіоаvаіlаbіlіtу:  The increased bioavailability mеаnѕ lеѕѕ оf the product іѕ wasted when taken, and that more of the product is put to use in the body’s system.
  • Increased effectiveness:  Water-soluble CBD products are more rapidly absorbed into the body’s system because water constitutes 60 – 70%  of the body.  Water-soluble products take less time to become active in the body compared to their oil-based counterparts.
  • The ability to be mixed with beverages:  Thanks to the lab technologies utilized by Murphy’s Natural Hemp, the products can now bе mіxеd with wаtеr or any water-based drink.

High-Quality / Laboratory Tested

Murphy’s Natural Hemp water-soluble CBD products are sourced in the U.S., produced with the highest quality ingredients, and are continually tested to be sure they meet our high standards.

To summarize:  With our tinctures, you receive the health benefits of both CBD and Curcumin in a water-soluble form, providing you with increased absorption and quick relief.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp is the “clear” choice.  But don’t just take our word for it… see for yourself!

Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Soluble Sleep Tincture

Tech by Domenico Loia

Technological advances have allowed us to become more productive in both professional and personal lives.  However, along with all the conveniences come increasing demands and intrusions on our days, sometimes our nights.  Text messages, emails, video conferencing, smart-TV’s, smart-homes, smart-cars, smart-beds, smart-clocks, never-ending smart-tech… When it’s time to slow down to rest, our bodies and minds are still going strong.  Spending an hour or so before bed, being technology-free will help your mind slow down and in turn, help the body relax.  Other quieting activities could include listening to music, practicing meditation, reading, or doing a gentle yoga routine.

Natural remedies can also be beneficial in calming the mind and body to prepare for sleep.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sleep Aid Tincture is the holistic approach you’re looking for, without the side effects that typically come with using prescription medications or the over-the-counter quick fix.  Unlike oil-based products, Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sleep Aid product is pure and more bioavailable than any CBD oil product on the market.  As a  water-soluble formula, it is quickly and effectively absorbed by the body.

8.5x11 No FoldWhat’s the difference?

Water-soluble CBD has only recently risen to the forefront.  When we talk about a substance being water-soluble, we mean that it has the ability to be dissolved in water.  Oil and water do not mix.  When a substance is not water-soluble, the body is unable to absorb it easily.  Therefore, it may be necessary to consume large amounts of an oil-based product in order to get the results you’re looking for.  To improve solubility, and thus the therapeutic effectiveness of our tinctures, the Murphy’s Natural Hemp lab researched countless formulation strategies, including those that have already been largely tested.

It was a great challenge to find the correct solubilization tool, however, our lab has developed verifiable, water-soluble CBD and Curcumin complexes.  These products are formed with a pharmaceutical technology typically used where circumstances demand the increase of vital water-insoluble proteins for patients who are ill.  This water solubility makes it possible for our products to reach the body’s bloodstream in higher quantities while consuming less.

It makes no sense to pay the same or even more for an oil-based product when your body uses only 10% of their active ingredient, while you pass the rest as waste.  At Murphy’s Natural Hemp, our water-soluble products, allow your body to utilize a whopping 90% or more.  See the difference for yourself, watch this very telling video!
