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

Interview with Perry Moore ~ Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sales Team Member

Number two of our three-part interview series with the Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sales Team.  Say hello to Perry Moore.  Perry joined Murphy’s Natural Hemp in late 2018 after the company was formed.  He was called upon to lead the sales team, which freed up CEO Michael Shepard to attend to the company’s day-to-day operations.

Married, with two grown children, Perry lives in Murphy, North Carolina with his wife Joyce.  Along with representing Murphy’s Natural Solutions and Hemp products, Perry is an insurance agent, is active in the church, and enjoys working with the youth group.  In his free time, he enjoys hunting, golf, fishing and spending time with his family.  Oh, and he’s a huge, life-long Alabama RTR fan.  Interviewing Perry, it became obvious to me that he takes great pride in working with Murphy’s Natural Hemp, representing their quality products.

Me:  Welcome Perry, thanks for taking the time out of your busy week to do this interview with me.  I’m curious about what drives people to represent products in this particular industry.  What inspired you to become a sales team member with Murphy’s Natural Hemp?

Perry:  The idea of helping people feel better appealed to me.  I had used these products myself and knew that they worked.  Why not share my experience and the product with others?

Me:  So, you have first-hand experience with the products.  Great! That’s a good testimonial.  With all the CBD products on the market, what do you feel makes Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD unique?  What sets this company apart from the others?

Perry:  The water-solubility of the products, and the additional ingredient, Curcumin, is what sets our products apart from the rest, as well as knowing that the manufacturer is dedicated to producing the highest quality product on the market.

Me:  Not everyone knows what CBD is, or what water-soluble means when you are working with customers, how have you gone about educating them with regard to CBD, and its health benefits?  I imagine that’s part of your role as a representative for Murphy’s Natural Hemp, providing education and good information.

Perry: Research… with all the information we have at our fingertips, folks will read up on the products before using them.  Most everyone has heard of CBD oil.  I take it a step further, explaining how Murphy’s Natural Solution products are far superior to oil-based products because of their bioavailability to the body.  And, you get more for your money.  Because these products are highly bioavailable, less is required to get the desired results.  With an oil-based product, because it is not easily absorbed, the dosages required to get the same effects are higher, so in the end, you spend more.

Me:  That makes perfect sense!  Obviously, the water-based product is the better choice.  Who wants to spend more money?  With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, Hemp products have increased exponentially.  Tell me about some of the challenges you face in representing Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD products in an exploding market?

Perry:  With all the products on the market, it can be a challenge to stand out.  We keep moving forward with confidence because we know inferior products will not weather the storm.  Regulation is coming, and it will weed out the bad products… because of our quality and commitment, Murphy’s Natural Hemp will still be here.

Me:  What makes the customer come back again and again?  What do you yourself strive toward with regard to customer service?

Perry:  We make ourselves available!   Being there to answer questions customers may have, either by email or picking up the phone, is key to our success.  We work hard to be sure our customers know that we will be there for them when they need us.

Me:  Excellent approach, providing that kind of security and building trust.  So, what about feedback?  Have you received good reports from your customers about the products?

Perry:  Feedback from our customers has been very good.  We have all types of folks managing a variety of health challenges… Fibromyalgia, anxiety, restless legs, muscle pain, and the like.  All have reported success using Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD products.

Me:  Perry, what’s next? What do you see in the future for CBD products?  Being at the forefront, what trends do you see shaping up?

Perry:  Our quality and the effectiveness of the products we carry will continue to move us into the future.  I see CBD becoming more and more mainstream in the coming days, months and years.  Murphy’s Natural Solutions, with its high-quality products, is a company that will be here to see that future unfold.

Me:  Thanks again for being with me today Perry, is there anything else you’d like to share with me today before I let you go?

Perry:  Yes.  I would like to encourage people to try our products, see the benefits, feel better, and very possibly enrich their lives in the process.

Water Soluble CBD

Perry talked with me about water-soluble CBD.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp products are truly water-soluble, and not based on nanotechnology like other CBD products on the market, who also advertise as “water-soluble.”  The nanotechnology they use only grinds the ingredients down to microparticles, which can still ride through, and out of the body.  The process they’ve developed creates a product that is not only truly water-soluble but significantly increases the bioavailability of the product to the body’s system.

Be sure to check the ingredients, and integrity of the company you’re buying CBD products from.  Education is very important in understanding not only the benefits of CBD but also in understanding the different qualities of CBD, along with whatever other ingredients you may be buying when purchasing a CBD combination product.  Unfortunately, what might be advertised on a product label, may not be the true contents.

VIDEO:  Murphy’s Natural Hemp Water-Based CBD vs Oil-Based CBD

Oil and water don’t mix.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp is an all-natural water-soluble source of CBD plus Ayurvedic herbs that have more bioavailability to the body than other hemp oil products on the market.  But don’t just take our word for it… see for yourself!  Obviously, Murphy’s Natural Hemp is the “clear” choice.

At Murрhу’ѕ Nаturаl Hemp соmраnу, the ѕсіеntіfіс lab рrосеѕѕеѕ that led tо our 100% wаtеr soluble CBD рrоduсtѕ has provided nаturаl options, with lіttlе tо no аdvеrѕе ѕіdе effects, аnd hіghеr bіоаvаіlаbіlіtу еffесtѕ on thе bоdу’s ѕуѕtеm.  Onе of thе major challenges іn drug аdmіnіѕtrаtіоn іѕ effective аnd еffісіеnt delivery throughout the system.  With our рure 100% water-ѕоlublе CBD рrоduсt, this challenge has bееn reѕоlvеd.  Yоu receive full CBD mоlесulаr nutrіеntѕ with еvеrу drop оf our wаtеr-soluble product.  A wаtеr soluble сurсumіn blеnd іѕ also аddеd to the CBD tincture tо furthеr improve thе еffесtіvеnеѕѕ and bioavailability on thе body’s gаѕtrоіntеѕtіnаl ѕуѕtеm.

Interview with Justin Chumley ~ Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sales Team Member

Over the next week, I’ll be sharing interviews I’ve been able to snag with each member of the Murphy’s Natural Hemp sales team.  These are some incredibly busy individuals!  Today,  Justin Chumley’s in the hot seat.  Justin’s from Eastern North Carolina and has been with Murphy’s Natural Hemp since November, 2018.  He’s known and worked with Michael Shepard, CEO of the company, for upwards of 15 years.  If he has quiet time, which is rare given the booming CBD industry, you’ll find Justin off trout fishing with Diesel his trusty sidekick (pictured), or hanging with family.

Me:  Justin, thanks for agreeing to be in the hot seat today.  What inspired you to become a sales team member with Murphy’s Natural Hemp?

Justin:  I’ve enjoyed the sales industry my entire life, and was excited for the opportunity to sell a product that would enrich consumers’ lives.  Also, it’s not every day you get to work with your best friend.  (Michael Shepard CEO).

Me:  And what do you feel makes Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD products unique?  What sets this company apart from the others?

Justin:  Murphy’s Natural Hemp is unique because it’s water-soluble and more bioavailable than other products on the market… and just as important is the additional ingredient in our products.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD also contains Curcumin, which enhances the benefits of the CBD.

Me:  Justin, what are some of the challenges in representing these products in an exploding industry? 

Justin:  There are a lot of products in the market that take shortcuts. For example, many products claim they are water-soluble, but they are actually made with nano technology.  

Me:  For us lay-people, how is Murphy’s Natural Hemp different from the nano technology companies?

Justin:  There’s no nano complex in our solution.  Nano-complexes disperse tiny clusters of CBD molecules in an insoluble mixture.  Use oil and water as an example… there’s no bioavailability to the body’s system.  Eventually, all these nano products separate just like oil and water.  Our products are made with 100% purified water, no oils, and that’s what makes our products stand out among the rest.  99% of our product is absorbed by the body, compared to the leading oil-based products, which have only shown a 10% absorption rate.

ME:  Impressive!  Tell me about working with the customers.  What goals do you strive toward with regard to customer service?

Justin:  I strive to always be a resource for those curious about the benefits of our products.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp always has an open line of communication with our customers.  We’re ready and available to answer questions and provide up-to-date, accurate information about our products.  We pride ourselves on being a company with integrity and people you can trust.

ME:  And so far, what feedback have you received from your customers about the products?

Justin:  Recently, I had a customer contact me to report that our products helped alleviate her anxiety, and more than her previous prescription medication had.  She was thrilled to no longer have to rely on prescription medication in her daily life.

Me:  That’s right in line with some of the other reviews I’ve read regarding Murphy’s Natural Hemp products.  Good stuff!  What excites you most about the future of CBD products?  Being at the forefront and out working with the public, what kind of trends do you see taking shape?

Justin:  I am excited to see how the science behind CBD will shape future CBD products to become more inclusive of different needs.  CBD products are becoming widely available in big retail stores.  My wife was just talking about how she’s begun receiving marketing emails from beauty retailers for CBD beauty products.

ME:  Thanks Justin.  This wraps up my questions.  Is there anything else you’d like to share with me today?

Justin:  No, business is calling – gotta go!

CBD for anxiety

Anxiety - StressAnxiety on the rise

Anxiety, that feeling that something is horribly wrong.  Maybe you have panic attacks, can’t sleep, experience heart palpitations, or suffer from other symptoms like nausea, trembling, and racing thoughts.  Maybe just the word makes you anxious!

You are not alone.  According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 300 million people around the globe live with an anxiety disorder. (1)  And, it’s on the rise.  A 2018 poll conducted by the American Psychiatric Association indicates a five-point jump over 2017.  The poll rated U.S. participants’ concerns surrounding health, safety, finances, relationships, and politics, with Baby Boomers experiencing the greatest increase in anxiety. (2)

Treatment

There are a number of prescription medications used to treat anxiety disorders.  Along with those medications come a big-bundle of side effects that could include:

  • blurred vision
  • headache
  • nausea
  • dizziness
  • fatigue
  • sleep problems
  • increased blood pressure
  • weight gain
  • depression
  • and the list goes on…

CBD – the natural alternative

cannabis sativaCannabidiol, or CBD, may offer an alternative method in managing anxiety.  It is a chemical compound that comes from the cannabis sativa plant, an annual herbaceous flowering plant.  Cannabidiol is one of over 100 such compounds, known as cannabinoids, that are found in the plant.  CBD does not have any psychoactive effects and has a good safety profile.  It does not get the user “high.”  The cannabinoid has become increasingly popular over the last several years for treating patients with a range of medical conditions, including anxiety.

There are a number of research studies published from 2015 through 2019 that indicate CBD may be beneficial for those living with anxiety disorders.  A January 2019 study by Shannon, Lewis, Lee, and Hughes stated, “The results of our clinical report support the existing scientific evidence.  In our study, CBD appears to be better tolerated than routine psychiatric medications,” and “Furthermore, CBD displays promise as a tool for reducing anxiety in clinical populations…” (3)

Should you give this natural alternative a try?  As always, it’s important to talk with your doctor when adding supplements to treat any health condition you may have.  And what about the dosage? Ingredients? THC content?  Here’s the short story:

Dosage and integrity of ingredients

  • Since there’s no one-dose-fits-all CBD amount, it’s best to start small with just a couple of drops, and then increase or decrease dosage as needed.  Something else to take into consideration, how long the effects of the dosage of CBD lasts.  In the beginning, you may need to do some tracking to adjust your dose as necessary.  Document when you took it and how long it lasted to determine personal need and increase or decrease dosage accordingly.  Figuring out how to correctly dose CBD will be important in maximizing the benefits of this natural remedy.
  • Be aware of the additional ingredients in your CBD!  I have allergies to olive oil and soy products, so I searched and purchased what looked like a safe product, only to find out later that I had purchased CBD that contained soy.  The company did not have it listed on the products site description.  It was only after being delivered and the package opened that I discovered in a product pamphlet that soy was one of the other ingredients contained.  I again thoroughly researched and purchased a pure water-based product.  Sometimes you have to dig around on CBD websites to find out what the other ingredients might be.  Some contain soy, others contain olive or coconut oil, and still others may contain vitamins.  Be an informed consumer.
  • Do you have concerns about overdosing with CBD? My research indicates that the most it can do is make you super-sleepy, so start small and work up to the dose that works for you. Ultimately, finding the correct CBD dose is important so that you can maximize the effects of the compound while using the minimum amount needed, which will save you money.  Water-soluble CBD’s are found to be more effective as you will use less since it will enter your body’s system quicker and easier than an oil-based product.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp CBD/Curcumin

Murphy’s Natural Hemp pairs the benefits of CBD with the powerhouse spice, Curcumin.  Curcumin is receiving worldwide attention due to its multiple health benefits, which appear to act primarily through its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms.  It is one of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, which is harvested from the turmeric plant by grinding up its root.  Curcumin has shown promising effects in patients with various pro-inflammatory diseases including arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel disease, ulcers and more.

Does it contain any THC?

We use the CO2 extraction method to pull CBD from the hemp plant.  It is viewed as the safest way to extract and guarantee a pure end product.  Murphy’s Natural Hemp products are isolates, meaning they contain no tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.

Other market products may be full-spectrum CBD.  These will contain less than .3% or trace amounts of THC, which is not considered enough to provide a user with any side effects they may experience using other cannabis products.  Simply put, you will not get “high” from either the isolate or full-spectrum product.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp Products are Water-Soluble

One of the main challenges with CBD and Curcumin is guaranteeing the bioavailability of the active ingredients, especially when they have limited gastrointestinal permeability.  To improve aqueous solubility, and thus the therapeutic effectiveness of these compounds, we researched countless formulation strategies, and were successful in finding a solution!  Murphy’s Natural Hemp products are designed with pharmaceutical technology that is typically used where circumstances demand increasing vital water insoluble proteins for patients who are dealing with illnesses.

Unlike other CBD formulas, there is no nano complex in our solution, which only disperses small nano-size clusters of CBD molecules in an otherwise insoluble mixture. Eventually, all nano products separate, like oil and water… and, they show no improvement for increasing bioavailability.  And our products are made with 100% purified water, unlike oil-based CBD products offered by other companies.  This is what makes our products stand out among the rest.  99% of our product is absorbed by the body.  Only 10% of CBD is absorbed using the leading oil-based products.

Does your CBD actually contain what the label says it does?

CBD Products by Kimberly Nanney

Serving Up CBD

CBD products have increased exponentially on the market.  There are now literally thousands of products available from oil tinctures, to vaping oils, body creams, salad dressings, food additives, dietary supplements, and depending on where you live, the local barista will add it to your favorite drink!  Ah, but do you know anything about what you’ve purchased?  What’s on the label?  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.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp Pairs CBD & Curcumin for increased health benefits

Murphy’s Natural Hemp pairs the benefits of CBD with the powerhouse spice, Curcumin.  Curcumin is receiving worldwide attention due to its multiple health benefits, which appear to act primarily through its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms.  It is one of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, which is harvested from the turmeric plant by grinding up its root.  Curcumin has shown promising effects in patients with various pro-inflammatory diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel disease, peptic ulcer, gastric ulcer, gastric inflammation, psoriasis, and lupus.

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 Cannabinoid Wheel

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are the naturally occurring chemical compounds found in the cannabis and hemp plants.  Both plants have been vastly researched and reported as being beneficial for several medical needs, pain, sleep, gastrointestinal illnesses, mood and behavior disorders, neurological disorders and more.  The illustration and key descriptions below provide a guide to the major cannabinoids and how they may prove helpful with a variety of medical conditions.

CBD-THC Medical Use Wheel

The Cannabinoid Wheel Key:

  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinolic (THCA)
  • Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)

CBC

Just like THC and CBD, Cannabichromene or CBC comes from the stem of the cannabis plants cannabigerol acid (CBGA).  It is produced through heat or ultraviolet light.  Getting techie here, so we’ll move on to the benefits.  CBC does not get the user high and has shown potential in treating pain, inflammation, and acne.  Studies are being conducted on its benefits in treating cancer and depression.

CBD

Cannabidiol or CBD is harvested from both the cannabis and hemp plants.  It is known largely for anxiety and pain relief as well as muscle-relaxing properties.  As an isolate without the THC component, CBD becomes a non-psychoactive compound, producing zero to .03 percent THC.  In addition, studies have shown this cannabinoid can be beneficial for a number of health conditions, in particular, inflammation reduction, treatment for pain, combating arthritis, reducing anxiety, treating sleep disorders and more.  Research and clinical studies continue, so it looks as though there will be more information regarding practical and medicinal uses with this natural remedy in the future.

CBG

Cannabigerol or CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid much like CBD.   It is produced when the heat is applied to cannabigerol acid.  I know, getting super-technical again.  The short story is that this is proving effective as a pain reliever, anti-convulsive, as a sleep aid, an anti-inflammatory and increases appetite.  There is a wide variety of research, as well as several articles available to find out more about how this cannabinoid works with each health challenge, on the Internet and in the National Library of Medicine.

CBN

Cannabinol or CBN is a result of THC being exposed to oxygen over a period of time.  Simply, cannabis left out in the open is more likely to have higher levels of CBN.  Studies show CBN’s properties benefit those dealing with pain, insomnia, inflammation, and lack of appetite.  Additional research is being conducted with this cannabinoid as an anti-consultant and anti-bacterial component.

CBDA

Cannabinoids actually begin as cannabinoid acids (CBDA) that are activated when they’re heated.  Although research is minimal, early lab studies show Cannabidiolic acid or CBDA is a potent compound that may help with inflammation, nausea and vomiting, and as an anti-cancer agent.  Ongoing studies are being conducted.

THC

THC, the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, is the primary cannabinoid responsible for creating the high associated with recreational cannabis use.  A variety of studies have shown that THC may help deal with a number of medical challenges such as the side effects of chemo, lessening tremors due to spinal injuries, nausea, and vomiting, digestive health, chronic pain, and inflammation.

THCA

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid or THCA is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid.  It is the acidic form of THC.  Individuals have shared how they’ve experienced relief in symptoms due to inflammation, arthritis, lupus, muscle spasms, and pain.  In addition, an international study reports that THCA may be helpful for patients living with MS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s disease. (1)   Ongoing studies are being conducted.

THCV

Tetrahydrocannabivarin or THCV has psychoactive effects like THC.  It may be useful in treating anxiety and panic attacks, as an appetite suppressant, and may help with diabetes.  From what I could gather in the available research and articles, there are low amounts of this compound in the general cannabis plant.  So before purchasing, read up on which plants will produce a generous amount of THCV to get the desired effect.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp Combines CBD With Curcumin

Murphy’s Natural Hemp takes the highest quality CBD cannabinoid and combines it with the holistic spice remedy Curcumin.  Curcumin, one of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, 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, as well as showing promising effects in patients with ulcers, arthritis, irritable bowel, psoriasis, lupus, and more.  Further studies are being conducted on the benefits of curcumin for reducing the progression of Alzheimer’s and improving the heart and circulatory system.

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 standards.

Water-Based CBD

CBD tincture-bottle-600x600-1Oil-based CBD does not dissolve in water.  Oily substances are repelled by water, which forces the 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.  For more information or to purchase Murphy’s Natural Hemp, go to https://murphysnaturalhemp.com/.

Should you decide to use CBD products for pain management, or for any other medical condition, always contact your doctor first to be sure there are no interactions with medications you may be taking.

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!
