What is Hemp?
Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses as its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants. It has dozens of uses and has hundreds of compounds.
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the over 60 cannabinoids that are unique to the cannabis plant and has many well-understood benefits. CBD tends to be the most prevalent cannabinoid in cannabis, but there are over 400 compounds in cannabis, and our products bring you the full spectrum. We do not use CBD isolates, and our own hemp is custom-refined to bring you CBDa, CBN, CBGa, CBC, and CBDV. Each of these cannabinoids has specific benefits.
Does CBD cause feelings of "being high?"
No, our products do not contain measurable quantities of THC-9, the compound associated with the psychoactive properties of marijuana. Hemp grown in Montana cannot contain more than 0.3% THC.
What are the benefits of using CBD products?
Hemp contains phytocannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD), which supports our natural endocannabinoid system- responsible for maintaining homeostasis (balance and calm) in the body. Exercise, overuse, and age can leave you with sore muscles and joints. CBD and camphor keep your inflammatory response in line so use can move easily. You can count on this organic CBD extract to work when you need it. It's enhanced with essential oils and coconut oil for quick and easy absorption.
How does topically applied CBD get into our bodies?
Human skin absorbs CBD more effectively when it is applied with oils that contain polyunsaturated fatty acid, or PUFAs, such as Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. We use PUFA rich oils in all of our products, including hemp oil produced from our organically grown hemp grain. Yellowstone Herb Company products also contain proprietary blends of essential oils. Essential oils are critical to helping CBD and other hemp-derived compounds enter the blood stream and penetrate nerve receptors.
How should I use your product?
Each of us reacts differently to CBD and the other natural hemp-derived compounds that are found in Yellowstone Herb Company products. There are many variables that affect how our bodies absorb CBD and these other compounds. YHC products contain a certain concentration of CBD. Our personal and our clients' experiences have shown that microdosing is an effective method to safely and consistently obtain the benefits of CBD. When you first apply our product to the affected area of your body, apply a small amount and massage the area for a few minutes. Wait 20 minutes while paying careful attention to your body. Are your symptoms subsiding? Do you feel better? If you feel better, then you have found a good dosage for you. If your symptoms still persist, repeat application, working in 20 minute increments while monitoring your body. When your symptoms have been alleviated, your body has reached the desired results with the CBD. Wait for an hour, and then reapply the product. As you become more experienced using our products, you will be able to better determine a good interval between applications that works best for your symptoms.
Your symptoms and application rates are unique to you. Others that use CBD may have different application rates with different concentrations that work best for their symptoms. Take your time with the product and slowly adapt and change your dosages to alleviate your symptoms.
