WHY WE LOVE THEM
A boost of cooling menthol immediately dissolves discomfort and increases blood flow. A long-lasting cooling effect calms tension, clears sinuses, and uplifts mood. The Menthol Rub can be used as a vapor rub on the neck and chest for sinus congestion, symptoms from asthma, seasonal allergies, or colds. It can also be used as a topical balm for muscle strain, injury or aches.
The Full-Spectrum Oil is an agricultural hemp extract that is abundant in naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, vitamins, omega fatty acids, trace minerals and other beneficial components, emulsified in organic, cold-pressed hempseed oil.
The extraction method used to make our oil yields a full-spectrum extract that contains more than 80 different compounds. Many other types of nutritional constituents present in this oil include amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omegas 3 and 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta carotene, chlorophyll, flavonoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, and terpenes.

THE ALLERGY ASSIST RITUAL
Seasonal allergies are part of the spring time territory for most of us. We've put together the perfect pair of products to assist your mind and body when pollen is out and about so that you can be out and about too!
Findings from a 2009 study showed that cannabinoids are capable of slowing the activation of T-cells, a specific kind of white blood cell, in mice. CBD may be able to inhibit antibody responses and reduce allergic symptoms by impairing the release of these cells.
Another study from 2014 demonstrated that terpenes, specifically alpha-pinene which is commonly found in cannabis sativa, can also help to lower antibody levels. Researchers observed that the mice rubbed their eyes, nose and ears less frequently after exposure to alpha-pinene. The mice also had lower levels of immunoglobulin E, a compound that releases histamines which are responsible for allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, itching, and swelling of the nasal cavities.
Additionally, a 2005 study showed that certain cannabinoids may actually prevent heightened histamine responses by suppressing the activation of mast cells which trigger histamine release. Inflammation plays a key roll during the onset of allergies and as we know, CBD has been shown to reduce overall inflammation. A 2019 study showed that CBD can also help reduce inflammation in the airways which can be helpful for those who also suffer from asthma.
We believe the best way to combat inflammation is with a daily dose of CBD. Ingest 5-10 drops of the Full Spectrum Oil twice daily. For best results, try morning and evening or as needed throughout the day. After a 30 day period, how do you feel? If you are having intense seasonal allergy episodes, you can increase the dose.
To assist you at the onset of seasonal allergies, nothing works better than the Menthol Rub. Apply to neck and chest, even a touch under nostrils if you are having trouble clearing the nasal cavity. A boost of cooling menthol immediately opens up the airways and reduces sinus congestion. You can use the Menthol Rub as needed for relief throughout the day and before bed each evening. If you are experiencing tension headaches from allergy symptoms, you can also use the Menthol Rub on the back of the neck and temples for relief.
