Current research suggests that cannabis that contains THC is unsafe for developing brains.
Grateful Goddess Organics only use hemp oils derived from 100% organic non-GMO, therapeutic grade CBD that has zero THC. Our products are considered Full Spectrum as it contains 75 additional terpenes that work together to synergistically promote wellness.
The FDA and other agencies have generally recognized terpenes as “safe.” Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters; they are prone to combine with or dissolve in lipids or fats; they act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”). However, more specific research is needed for improved accuracy in describing and predicting how terpenes in cannabis can be used medicinally to help treat specific ailments / health conditions.
We recommend that you take a daily journal for the next week or so. Record your discomfort level while on the product, and record your level while not on our product. The product takes about 48 hours to wear off. Most people say they don’t feel anything, but in reality, their body just adjusts very subtly that they don’t notice the difference until they use a journal.
“To date, the FDA has not approved any drug product containing cannabidiol, for any indication, meaning none of these products have been determined by FDA to be safe or effective for their intended indications,” agency spokesman Jeff Ventura tells U.S. News. “FDA has grown concerned at the proliferation of therapeutic claims being made about an increasing number of products, for sale in all 50 states, purporting to contain cannabidiol,” he says. “The marketing and promotional materials for many of these products indicate they are intended for the use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of diseases, including, for example: cancer, various infections, psychiatric disorders, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and diabetes.” Ventura says the FDA “has not issued guidance or an opinion on these kinds of products, [but] the agency reserves the right to take action when appropriate to preserve and protect the public health.”
No parent should have to weigh the TRUE AND ACTUAL suffering that your child is experiencing vs. the potential possible risk of a natural plant based product that contains no THC. That said, there is no evidence to suggest natural organic hemp oils pose any dangers to children.
However, for liability purposes, we can not actually say that “the product is safe for children.”
We have also created two products: Drops for Life – Lite, and Drops for Life – Pets. These have a much lower concentration of hemp oil so you can adjust dosage accordingly.
Effects vary depending on your condition, severity of your symptoms, your body mass, etc. Generally, we suggest testing the product at the lowest recommended dosage and then increase the dosage until you feel the benefits.
We designed our product to last approximately 1 month.
Other hemp oil products typically do not contain the extra terpenes that: act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”). However, more specific research is needed for improved accuracy in describing and predicting how terpenes in cannabis can be used medicinally to help treat specific ailments / health conditions.
We have pioneered a process that we call our “harmonic synchronization process” which amplifies the therapeutic effects of our products. When comparing our product side-by-side with just pure hemp oils, our users have reported a “night and day” difference in potency.
Homeostasis is your body’s natural position/condition when it is in perfect health. Imagine, if you will, a product that can help guide your body to “find it’s true North.” In other words, you cannot over-align your body “too North.” Once it arrives at “true North,” it cannot really become more “true.”
If it is an 80 pound pet, then you might start at a dropper and a half or even 2 droppers full.
