Top 5 Medicinal Herbs and Plants for Daily Wellness

Published

on

Plant medicine has been practiced for centuries by people in every area of the world, used to treat acute and chronic conditions, support overall wellness, and as a religious and cultural practice. If you are newly dipping your toes into medicinal herbs, you will likely have already discovered your options are virtually endless. Indeed, which can make narrowing it down a difficult task. In this simple guide, we will demystify some of the basics of medicinal herbs by sharing five of the most beneficial plants for supporting daily health and wellness. 

What are Medicinal Herbs & Plants

Since ancient times, people have been using medicinal herbs – long before we began writing down remedies and mass-producing pharmaceuticals. It was a time when families were passing down traditional methods of healing generation after generation. As such, medicinal herbs and plant-based medicines are varieties of what is known as flora. Flora is known to support human health and wellness. Some medicinal plants and herbs are only medicinal in part; for example, the plant’s roots. In comparison, specific plants contain therapeutic benefits and remedies in their entirety. 

While most plants – like fruits, vegetables, and greens – hold nutritional value, one must not categorize all as medicinal. For instance, an apple is rich in fiber and vitamin C, two essential nutrients for healthy digestion and general health. But, an apple tree is not a medicinal plant, nor is the apple itself since it doesn’t have the necessary compounds to treat specific ailments.

On the other hand, garlic contains more than 200 chemical ingredients, proving to effectively prevent cardiovascular disease and related ailments. Garlic acts as an antibacterial and antifungal treatment, an antioxidant, and an immune booster. It even contains antitumoral properties, proving an effective treatment against specific cancer cells. Most medicinal plants are distinguished according to their high concentration of disease-fighting chemicals (phytochemicals): alkaloids, flavonoids, polysaccharides, terpenes, tannins, and more. 

Essential Medicinal Plants & Herbs

While there are thousands of medicinal plants and herbs in existence, there is no need to worry about trying them all. Many plants contain similar compounds and offer the same benefits, so it is all about finding the right ones for you. While it ultimately comes down to personal preference, some medicinal herbs are widely considered essential for any herbalist’s medicine cabinet. Here are five amazing plant medicines to support daily health and wellbeing: 

Turmeric

Turmeric, a member of the same plant family as ginger, is native to India and other Southeast Asia areas where it became a key ingredient in Ayurvedic medicine. Turmeric root possesses a beautiful deep golden hue, making it useful for dying cloth. A slightly bitter and aromatic flavor makes it delicious in various East Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean dishes. 

As a medicinal herb, turmeric root is used to reduce inflammation, boost liver function, fight infection, and aid in healthy digestion. Specifically, many individuals use turmeric root to combat conditions like urinary tract infections, rheumatoid arthritis, menstrual cramping, loss of appetite, gastrointestinal distress, and various other ailments. To further enhance the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric root, combine it with the power of CBD. Turmeric CBD oil can be taken on its own, added to a meal, or mixed in with a cup of tea, a smoothie, or a simple glass of water. 

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is a nightshade plant – like tomatoes and eggplants – native to India, China, Nepal, and Yemen. Small burnt-orange fruits with dull green leaves, ashwagandha is primarily used for its roots. The ashwagandha roots have a distinctly horse-like odor, giving the plant its name, which derives from the Sanskrit ashva (horse) and gandha (smell). 

Individuals who practice traditional Ayurvedic medicine commonly use ashwagandha roots to create a remedial tonic. The ashwagandha roots offer diuretic properties to cleanse your body of toxins while reducing inflammation in the joints, stomach, intestines, and muscles. Also regarded as a stimulant, individuals can also take ashwagandha to improve memory, reduce the effects of neurological diseases, and treat stress.

To reduce stress at the end of a long day and to prepare yourself for a night of restful sleep, trying making ashwagandha infused Moon Milk:

  1. Warm 8 oz. milk of your choice in a small saucepan until just simmering
  2. Whisk ½ tsp. powdered ashwagandha root, ½ tsp. cinnamon, and ¼ tsp. ginger into the warm milk until combined
  3. Add 1 tsp. coconut oil plus 1 tsp. of your favorite natural sweetener (like honey, agave, or maple syrup), pour the mixture into a mug, and enjoy!

Hemp CBD

Hemp, like marijuana, is a variety of cannabis plants originally native to Central Asia before spreading throughout Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. Unlike marijuana, hemp does not contain the psychoactive compound “THC.” When one consumes hemp – or CBD – they will not feel the typical ‘high’ and psychoactive effect of weed. Instead, hemp is rich in a different cannabinoid known as CBD. Its scientific name is cannabidiol. CBD is known for the myriad of health benefits it has to offer, including anti-inflammatory, pain-reducing, anxiety-reducing, anti-tumor, and neuroprotective properties. Hemp CBD has even been used to alleviate the symptoms of debilitating epilepsy, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and other physically limiting conditions.  

Further, hemp can be taken in various consumption methods. For example, CBD can come in a pill form, edible, oil or tincture, or even a topical like body lotion. No matter how you use the herb, be sure to source yours from a trusted CBD company whose ingredients you can trust. 

As such, the most compelling evidence of direct sourcing is Mana Botanic’s full line of Hawaiin CBD products containing Hawaiin-grown hemp. Not only does Mana Botanic harvest their product using forward-thinking ethical practices, but they also formulate the products to have the ultimate bioavailability. Ultimately, allowing you to enjoy all of the potent effects and therapeutic benefits of CBD for a shyer price. 

Tulsi

While belonging to the same family as the basil plant, tulsi is a small, fragrant bush. Centuries ago, people were predominantly using tulsi in Ayurvedic medicine. Sometimes called ‘holy basil,’ tulsi is commonly used as a culinary herb, favored for its bright and peppery taste. 

Tulsi’s primary purpose is to promote balance in the body, reduce blood pressure, prevent inflammation, normalize blood glucose levels, and even protect vital organs from free-radicals in the body. Tulsi also contains several other beneficial compounds, including terpenes to reduce pain, flavonoids to flush out toxins, and vital compounds to promote mental health and wellbeing. 

Most commonly, tulsi is taken as a tea to reduce stress and address inflammation. To make your own tulsi tea, one can brew dried tulsi leaves in hot water with other medicinal herbs like chamomile and enjoy hot or cold. 

Comfrey

Native to parts of Asia and Eastern Europe, the comfrey plant is commonly kept as a decorative plant thanks to its beautiful bell-shaped flowers and deep green leaves. Underground and beneath the thick foliage, comfrey roots are large, long, and tuberous, appearing deep brown on the outside and snow-white on the inside. The first accounts of comfrey as a medicinal herb come from ancient Greece and Rome, where the plant was used to treat bruising and sprains. 

After more than 2,000 years of use, comfrey remains a popular herbal medicine used by people today to increase healing, reduce pain, treat scarring, and stimulate cellular regeneration. When used to treat acute pain or wounds, comfrey has proven effective in increasing the healing rate while reducing overall pain and discomfort. 

When applied topically, comfrey can treat muscle, nerve, and joint pain, increase blood flow to the area for rapid healing and eliminate lingering discomfort. Simply spread an herbal hemp balm infused with comfrey onto the affected area, and you’ll experience sweet relief in minutes. 

Final Thoughts

While knowledge of medicinal herbs has been passed down for centuries, you don’t need to be a master herbalist to enjoy plant medicine benefits. Plant medicine is for everyone. In light of a renewed interest by consumers in natural remedies, plenty of products are available today that can help you discover which medicinal herbs will work for you.

Holiday Marketing Tips for Cannabis Businesses

Cannabis Businesses Marketing Tips

The holidays are just around the corner. And for most businesses – including cannabis dispensaries and companies – the holiday season is the most exciting time of the year. This is because family and friends are starting to buy their gifts in time for Christmas. For business owners, this article will help you implement proven effective cannabis marketing tips!

Cannabis businesses are not exempt from the holiday rush. As a matter of fact, apart from the renowned Hallmark holiday for cannabis-loving individuals, Christmas and the rest of the holiday season also provide ample profits for businesses. Many businesses ramp up their cannabis & CBD content to drive more traffic to their websites and their product offerings.

If you have a cannabis brand, now is the best time to launch your CBD oil products on the market. Apart from meeting the demand for cannabis also supplying consumers with a range of cannabis-infused products for Christmas. Wondering how you can take advantage of the holidays to effectively market cannabis products online? Check this list out.

Cannabis Holiday Marketing Tips

Use Eye-Catching Packaging

Let’s start with the appearance of your product packaging. Your product may be just as (or even more) effective and safe than other brands but with bland packaging, your items are sure to be overlooked. This is why it is important to use attention-grabbing designs.

To do this, you need to conceptualize a design that not only conveys the message you want to send but also sells your brand. Because it is Christmas, you might want to release your items in a packaging that shows the merriment of the season. From including season’s greetings to including images usually associated with the holiday, you can definitely have these themed designs on your packaging.

Ensure Freshness of CBD Products

When you market your products you want to make sure that you emphasize that what you are offering is fresh and safe to consume. Now, keep in mind that one of the most important aspects of marketing is ensuring that what you claim about the product is true.

So, make it a point to pick or develop a packaging technique that ensures that the items are completely sealed, preventing external factors from contaminating it. To let consumers know how fresh your product is, make it a point to include the manufacturing date on the label.

Properly Label All CBD Products

You also want to make sure that your products are properly labelled and this covers the compliance to regulations. Regulators find it important to have easily readable labels that immediately tells consumers that the product is infused with cannabinoids. Moreover, it is necessary to make sure that the packaging cannot be easily tampered with.

In the United States, state laws state that such products need to be inside child- and tamper-proof packaging. Moreover, you need to make sure that your labels clearly state that the items are CBD- or THC-infused, and with what percentage of both. Canada also has similar regulations. In fact, the country even has a standardized symbol to make sure that consumers know that the product they are about to buy is legitimate and compliant with related laws.

Green is In

In the current climate condition, many people are switching to green options. From reusable packaging to biodegradable ones, manufacturers and consumers are finding ways to minimize their contribution to climate change. Besides, what better way to celebrate the holidays than with products that are environment-friendly?

So, consider packing your cannabis and CBD products using green materials. You can opt for reusable jars and bottles, as well as biodegradable wrappers such as paper. If you also run your own dispensary, you can even establish a refill program that allows your customers to refill their reusable packaging, as long as this is legal in your location.

With the upcoming festivities, your cannabis business can definitely ride the tide not only of the holidays but also of the growing cannabis trend. With these marketing tips, you can leverage the season to boost your business, thus helping the cannabis industry.

Product Review: Innovative Extracts Night Time CBD Gummies w/ Melatonin

Published

on

CBD for sleep

Nearly 1 year ago, I did a review on the 20 CBD Gummies for Sleep where I took a look at some of the industry’s top products specifically designed for helping you get those zzz’s. Since this time, I have looked into other products that help with sleep, and one that piqued my interest was Innovative Extracts sleep gummies. It was one product I found to be captivating specifically because not only does it have CBD as an active ingredient but also another well-known sleep aid, melatonin. 

CBD + Melatonin Gummies by Innovative Extracts

How did it measure up you ask? Here is what I discovered after I gave these a try for a full 7 days:

Taste

I found that the flavors of the gummies were not overpowering and tasted good. There are several different colors, indicating different flavors however, they tasted rather similar to me. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the worst, and 10 being the best, I would give these and 8.75-9 out of 10 on taste. Another facet of taste I considered was texture and the gummies were right on par in terms of texture. Very similar to the standard candy gummies you get at your local grocery store. A stellar 10 out of 10 on texture and they didn’t melt or stick together like some of the other gummies in the space.

Look

Simple “bear-shaped” gummies look great and the packaging was just as appealing. I also liked the variety of colors/flavors. No qualms here.

Effectiveness

The most important attribute for this review is just how well it helped me sleep. In general, I do find it hard to go to sleep and stay asleep for more then 3-4 hours at a time. I sometimes take CBD oil before bed or melatonin gummies, which both work well most times. For the Innovative Extracts gummies, and the combination of CBD+Melatonin, I can say is a fantastic combination. I was able to stay asleep for 5-6 hours on average after consuming 1 gummy before bed. I am now curious if I were to take my previous CBD oil and melatonin together if it would have the same effectiveness, but at this point, why bother? Innovative Extracts gummies are a one-stop-shop for better sleep.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I really liked the Innovative Extracts Night Time CBD Gummies with Melatonin and its effectiveness. I would give this product a solid 9.5 out of 10 and recommend others to try to help them get better sleep in a hurry!
