Hopefully, these people have found DirectHemp.com where we have taken the guesswork out of what products and brands are good or not. So now, the question is, how do I take CBD?  Continue reading

    CBD Isolate - Pros, Cons and Uses

    CBD Isolate - Pros, Cons and Uses

    There are many opinions when it comes to using CBD in isolate form. You will hear terms such as "The Entourage Effect" used to try and steer you towards a product that contains more than just isolate. While this does have merit, we believe that there is a time and place for isolated CBD to be used and there are studies to prove just that. 

    First, let's discuss what CBD isolate is...

    Element Apothec Brand Highlight

    Element Apothec Brand Highlight

    Element Apothec is an innovative and purpose-driven consumer brand focused on CBD-infused wellness and body care products which combine the healing power of nature with the ingenuity of science. They are passionate about formulating products that are healthy for your body, inside and out; advocating for higher standards; creating social impact; and empowering consumers via transparency and education, all while holding themselves accountable to unparalleled standards of safety and quality.

    Elēment Apothēc is a new, innovative CBD brand redefining the body care and wellness industry. They are a Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to the highest standards of transparency and trust with an unrivaled commitment to product safety and quality. Their “Never, Ever Promise” means they will never use any toxic, harsh, or bad ingredients in any of their products, ever. And all of their innovative and highly-effective formulations have complete oversight from medical and scientific professionals.

    We here at DirectHemp.com are big fans of Element Apothec and what they are doing to build a company and a brand that lasts. Not only are they Leaping Bunny certified (The Leaping Bunny Certification is a voluntary pledge that cosmetic, personal care, and/or household product companies make to clear animal testing from all stages of product development. Element Apothec enthusiastically makes this pledge.), they are pending the Certified B Corporation status and they also commit to donate the equivalent of 1% of gross sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind and approved promotional support directly to environmental nonprofits.

    Element Apothec is comprised of moms and dads – Ordinary individuals who didn’t know what they didn’t know about skincare and wellness products. They trusted an industry that, in some cases, cares more about money than people. As they used sunscreen, lotion and supplements, they assumed it was all good. Then they learned there’s a lot of stuff in the stuff we buy that’s actually banned in other countries — but that’s the second generation of the story.

    Their journey began a decade ago, when their co-founder — afflicted with eight auto-immune disorders — started creating custom body care blends that eased her pain, nourished her skin and helped her feel better. In time, she shared her creations with friends and family, expanding to more than 40 products, including lotions, body butters, roll-ons, tinctures and supplements.

    Today, those time-tested, artisanal formulations have found a new life as they have partnered with integrative practitioners to infuse new products with high-quality, organic CBD and other phytocannabinoids, and bring them to the masses. Element Apothec is committed to using the purest ingredients that truly add value to each blend they make. Because what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it.

    You can find our favorite products of theirs right here on DirectHemp.com! Their 1000mg Nourish lotion is an ultra-hydrating daily moisturizer that stands out of the pack with their carefully crafted CBD and CBG blend. While their 500mg face serum has quickly become a go-to for us in our daily beauty routines. The serum is a luxurious, balancing formula also created with CBD and CBG in combination with other beneficial oils like Sea Buckthorn, Moringa and Abyssinian.

    We are so excited to welcome Element Apothec to our family of brands on DirectHemp.com and we hope you, our customers, will love their products as much as we do. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

    Signs of Endocannabinoid Deficiency

    Signs of Endocannabinoid Deficiency

    Understanding Endocannabinoid Deficiency requires a basic knowledge of human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

    ECS is a cell communication mechanism within the human body. It is a complex system responsible for regulating a range of major body functions, including sleep, memory, reproduction, hunger and mood.

    Endocannabinoid Deficiency occurs when the efficiency of the ECS is affected. The theory of CED or Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency was first put forth by Dr. Ethan Russo.

    According to Dr. Russo, many medical conditions are a result of deficiencies in the body’s neurotransmitter systems (messaging systems that help the nervous systems communicate with the rest of the body). Dr. Russo suggests that increasing the activity of the ECS through the use of cannabinoid agonists can help address many health issues.

    How Long Does it Take CBD to Work?

    How Long Does it Take CBD to Work?

    How CBD Works in the Body?

    A common question that people new to CBD ask is about the time that the compound takes to show effect. CBD, on an average, can take 2 to 6 hours to show its effects. There are a variety of factors that influence this duration though.

    The time taken by CBD to work in the body depends on some key factors such as the form of CBD being used and the body’s absorption efficiency.

    CBD vaping products, for example, enter the lungs directly after intake. This immediate absorption into the body makes CBD available to the body’s ECS or endocannabinoid system within a very short time.

    Endocannabinoid System and Sleep

    Endocannabinoid System and Sleep

    The Endocannabinoid System or the ECS is an intricate system of cell-signaling within the human body. The cell-to-cell signaling facilitates the performance of a range of bodily activities. Proper functioning of the ECS is crucial for good sleep, memory, appetite, mood and reproduction.

    Recent and ongoing studies are examining the effects of CBD on sleep. Studies suggest that CBD brings about a positive impact in people with sleep problems by influencing the body’s ECS. There is a need for more exhaustive studies to reach conclusive results.

    Optimize Your Endocannabinoid System

    Our body’s endocannabinoid system helps keep your healthy, mentally and physically. Here’s what you can do to ensure this system works at peak performance.

     The endocannabinoid system or ECS is essential for our well- being. This cell signaling system has been found to regulate many critical functions including appetite, sleep, memory and mood. Two critical endocannabinoids are produced by the body as and when the need arises. These bind with either of two ECS receptors, CB1 or CB2, to prompt the ECS to take appropriate action.
