By now you’ve probably heard about CBD oil. Between television, radio, magazine, and the Internet, it’s pretty hard to miss. Touted as a natural cure for (almost) whatever ails you, there’s even alleged advantages for Fido!
CBD oil is the concentrated liquid extract of the marijuana plant, also known as Cannabis sativa. Like other herbs, the chemicals in the oil vary depending on how the extract is made and what chemicals were present in the plant.
Marijuana plants contain thousands of compounds, most notably cannabinoids. Of these, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are the best know. While THC offers the high, CBD contains less than .3% of THC, which means there are no psychoactive effects and it’s legal to consume and sell.
CBD is one of many phytocannabinoids found in hemp, while the human body produces endocannabinoids, which support proper functioning of bodily systems such as the digestive, central nervous and immune system. CBD binds with the human endocannabinoid receptors to further support proper functioning of these body systems.
TWINE CBD products include medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which boast benefits of their own. MCT oil is used by individuals wanting to lose weight or boost endurance during workouts. MCTs, found in coconut oil, are passed through the stomach to the liver where they are used as energy or turned into ketones. Ketones are produced when the liver breaks down fat and can be used by the brain for energy instead of sugar. This makes the calories in MCTs less likely to be stored as fat. Ketosis is when the brain uses ketones for energy instead of glucose.
Marijuana has been used as an herbal medicine as far back as 500 B.C., but CBD oil wasn’t discovered until 1940. Medical experts are hesitant to report on CBD oil because it’s relatively new and there haven’t been long-term studies. Because it’s a Classification 1 drug, marijuana is hard to obtain for research purposes, but that’s changing. Thirty-three states have legalized the drug for medicinal purposes and eleven states for recreational use.
Today it’s being used for:
- Pain relief
- Stress relief
- Improved sleep
As with any new product or service, consumers should educate themselves about CBD oil: find a trusted source, know exact percentages of cannabinoids in the oil, and start with a small dose to determine effects.
And speaking of a trusted source, you need look no further than twinecbd.com. Twine was founded by two friends Missy Rosenkampff and Angie Barlow. It all started when Missy began having unexplained back pain. She didn’t want to use the strong drugs prescribed by her doctor. Having heard about CBD oil she decided to give it a try. Amazingly the pain went away shortly after starting the oil.
She and Angie began hearing success stories from friends and family. Coupled with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, they decided to create their own line of CBD oil for the specialty retail market.
Initial research showed that it was difficult to verify the source, quality, and safety of the existing products. So, they decided to construct a business to business model that would ensure these very things for their retailers.
