We know that education is queen when it comes to CBD (cannabidiol). Much of our time is spent not just learning and keeping up with the research so we can formulate effective CBD products, but to continue to find and develop effective ways to communicate what we’ve learned. We are committed to passing on what we have learned to our customers to empower them to thoughtfully consider and consciously choose products that support their unique well-being.
We stay up to date with new research and studies that are published within the Cannabis industry. We also keep a watchful eye on the rapidly changing state and federal legislation.
We have created partnerships with local Colorado hemp farmers and have even visited the farms and helped pull "weeds". In addition, we created a 100% natural bug repellent to protect the hemp plants from predators like deer, grasshoppers, aphids, etc...
We've been formulating and handcrafting 100% natural body care products for over 15 years. So why re-invent the wheel?! We've taken our proven, highly effective product recipes and have integrated high-quality, Full Spectrum, third-party tested CBD oil. All our CBD Oil is sourced locally from Colorado farmers and extracted from non-GMO, pesticide-free Hemp.
We share with customers during their research and decision-making process what our CBD percentages and no-THC test results are, as well as other information relating to the ingredients and manufacturing process. We believe in the more the customer knows and trusts our products they are using on their bodies, the better experience and effective results they will have.
We've expanded our existing Good Manufacturing Practices to include our CBD line of products. So no matter which products we are making in our line, we can continue to handcraft consistent, high quality 100% natural body care products.
This is so important to us. Why take time from our lives to create a product line that just doesn't work? That doesn't help people feel good? Click here to read our Mission Statement and Values.
Many months ago, when we set out to learn more about cannabidiol (CBD) and its properties, we found ourselves confused over many of the related terms. And as we’ve talked with friends, family and our customers, we found that often times, people have a challenging time understanding how cannabidiol differs from cannabinoids, two commonly used terms that share spelling similarities and are often used interchangeably.
We decided to start with the basics, terminology. It’s helpful if you understand that cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid. In fact, it’s one of more than 100 cannabinoids found throughout the stalks, seeds, and flowers of cannabis plants like hemp. (We’ll talk more about cannabis vs hemp vs marijuana)
Cannabinoids are active chemical compounds found naturally in the seeds, stalk and flowers of cannabis plants. Phytocannabinoids, a term used to describe cannabinoids derived from plants, are able to interact with our body’s natural systems because their makeups and behaviors mimic endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are synthesized on demand by our own bodies. (We’ll talk more about the endocannabinoid system in the body later)
Our bodies are set up to interact with cannabinoids. Both phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids join with or influence cannabinoid receptors (cb1, cb2) throughout the body to alter the release of neurotransmitters and encourage balance in our systems. Cannabinoids are largely responsible for the natural effects that cannabis oils, such as CBD hemp oil, have on the body.
Scientists have so far identified over 100 phytocannabinoids found in cannabis plants like hemp. The two most abundant cannabinoids include cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
The cannabinoid composition of a cannabis plant is wide ranging and varies by strain. Some are higher in CBD and others contain more THC. Hemp is naturally higher in CBD and contains only trace amounts of THC (IF ANY). Our products contain 0% THC - Click here to see our test results
Cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid, it's known as CBD, and is among the most abundant of all the cannabinoids. It’s found in all varieties of cannabis, but dominates the makeup of Hemp plants.
CBD, along with other cannabinoids (research so far has idenified close to 100), account for a lot of the therapeutic characteristics of cannabis as a plant. It is one of the most well-known and well-studied cannabinoids, and is being investigated for its anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-seizure, and stress-relieving properties — just to name a few. This cannabinoid is the main ingredient in our Hemp CBD oil.
Studies have shown that cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, unlike THC. Therefore, consuming CBD won’t ever cause a high or temporarily inhibit cognitive functions. This makes CBD an appealing option for children or anyone looking to incorporate the balancing effects of cannabinoids without having to experience the fuzziness of a high.
CBD hemp oil is made from hemp that is naturally high in CBD and low (often 0%) in THC. Because hemp contains only trace amounts of the cannabinoid THC, hemp oil products are non-psychoactive.
Here at Alise Body Care, we use only high-quality, Full Spectrum, third-party tested Hemp CBD oil, locally grown here in Colorado and extracted from non-GMO, pesticide-free Hemp. We know the farmers and have visited the farms.
