Liposomal CBD Tinture
100% USDA Organic Hemp Derived
Made in the USA
In our manufacturing process, liposomes are created through a process called sonication, in which cannabidiol is introduced to coconut MCT oil. Sunflower lecithin is then additionally added to further strengthen the emulsion. Once all three elements are together in specific amounts, ultrasonic frequencies are transduced throughout the solution, breaking down all the molecules in a uniform manner, and agitating them into forming new lipid spheres. These lipid microspheres protect the CBD molecules from enzymatic degradation, improving effectiveness.
Topical CBD is available as an add-on to Integrative Body Therapy. Learn more below about how CBD works and why it is integral to maintaining a balanced state in the body.
The body has many physiological systems that work harmoniously with one another. Well known systems being the digestive system, nervous system and reproductive system to name a few. Surprisingly a recent discovery has uncovered a new system in the body! This system is called the endocannabinoid system, often called the “master regulator”, this system’s function is to maintain homeostasis in the body. When there is stress or trauma in the body this system helps to regulate other body systems and bring them back into a balanced state. The endocannabinoid system can likened to a symphony conductor or even an air traffic controller, cuing other systems to perform. Ultimately, it keeps us on an even keel, modulating how we experience pain, stress, hunger, sleep, mood, metabolism, memory retention, and much more.¹
CBD and the Body
CBD (aka cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid - a chemical compound that acts on the body’s receptors in the endocannabinoid system. CBD is non-psycho active and is the second most prevalent naturally occurring active compound found in the cannabis plant. Several anecdotal Benefits to note about CBD claim that CBD is well suited for:
Reducing Pain and Inflammation²
Reducing or eliminating seizures³
Fighting the growth of tumor and cancer cells⁴
Reducing muscle spasms and spasms of small intestines⁶
Protecting the nervous system⁷
Processed CBD: What You Should Know
CBD processed from hemp must have less than 0.3% THC and is manufactured in three ways:
Full-Spectrum CBD: In full spectrum CBD products, cannabis plants are processed to retain all of the elements of the plant (cannabinoids, terpenes, favanoids and trace amounts of THC)
Broad Spectrum CBD: A product where THC is eliminated from the spectrum but everything else is left behind.
CBD Isolate: This is what remains when all plant material except CBD is removed in the processing of cannabis. Considered the purest form of CBD, users like the isolate’s quality control factor and lack of THC.
Evolved Wellness CBD products use 100% Organic Isolate grown in the USA for all of their products and tinctures.
