Post 2- FDA Compliance/ Disclaimer
As you may have gathered by now, I am not a doctor, pharmacist, or even a CBD or CBDV expert. I am simply someone who loves all things natural, appreciates a company who puts quality and integrity first, always looks for opportunities to educate myself, and has learned how to incorporate essential oils and cbd oil clear into my daily life, some days I like to use it with my dab pen device! Any information discussed in this event is for educational purposes only and has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has laws in place regarding the claims that we can make about essential oils. I know that Nature’s Ultra CBD and Young Living essential oils are powerful and can be life-changing, and there are other products like cbd infused gummies which can also help you feel better. However, since restrictions are in place about what we, as distributors, are able to recommend, claim, or suggest, it’s very important that you understand that guidelines are in place, and I cannot make specific recommendations for you and your health concerns. Rather than focus on what’s not allowed though, it’s exciting to know that YOU are in charge of your own wellness! Accept the challenge, and let the investigation begin. Use your oils, study your resources, and get to know your body! One AWESOME thing about becoming a member with Young Living™ is that the educational opportunities are endless, and ensuring that members know how to safely and effectively use their oils is very important to them.
Post 3- What is CBD?
CBD is a hot topic that everyone is discussing. Some are for it, others are against it, and many have no clue what it is and how it works. In order to empower yourself to make good choices for your health and wellness, it is important to have a basic understanding of this product. Let’s start at the beginning.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is a compound that comes from the hemp plant, also known as Cannabis sativa. This compound is part of a complex body system called the Endocannabinoid System. You can find the best cbd products at sunriver botanicals.
Post 4- Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a regulatory system in the body that helps with brain functionality and helps to regulate the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. White Sands Orlando uses CBD as a natural substitute to assist with things like digestion, pain modulation, reproduction, stress, appetite control, mood, temperature control, and even memory. This is a complex system that is undergoing further research. It has become the new frontier for plant-based medicines.
The ECS works by regulating messages that are sent throughout the body. When your brain wants to send a message to the body it releases a chemical called a neurotransmitter. This neurotransmitter is released from a neuron (pre-synaptic). Once this message is released, it must reach across a gap, called a synapse, to the next neuron (post-synaptic). When the message is received it excites that neuron, which then allows the message to continue moving from neuron to neuron until it reaches its final destination. People can look at this site for the best and organic legal marijuana products.
When the neurotransmitter excites the neuron, it interacts with cannabinoid receptors acting as locks that can only be unlocked with a specific set of keys. Two of the most well-known receptors in this system are CB1 and CB2. When the post-synaptic neuron receives a message, it activates these cannabinoid receptors and sends a message back in the opposite direction. It often limits the response of the first neuron so that less of the neurotransmitter is released. This action affects how the messages are sent, received, and processed, and it also helps to regulate the processes of the body creating homeostasis, or balance.
Post 5- THC vs CBD
One of the biggest concerns about CBD is whether it contains THC and if using it means they are using a form of marijuana. THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. It gives a euphoric feeling, often referred to as “getting high”. THC interacts with CB1 receptors, mainly in the brain and central nervous system.
CBD does not interact with the body the same way and has no psychoactive properties. There is no euphoric feeling or altered mental state. CBD works with CB2 receptors and has more of an impact on the immune, gastrointestinal, and peripheral nervous systems. Cannabis Sativa varieties with less than 0.3% THC by dry weight are considered hemp plants. Varieties with higher levels of THC are considered marijuana plants.
Post 6- CBD History
Historically, hemp has been grown and used for centuries for everything from cloth and paper to lamp fuels, ropes, industrial fiber, food, and even body care products. During Colonial times, everyone was mandated to grow hemp. Presidents Washington and Jefferson both grew hemp, and it was widely grown in the United States up through the mid-twentieth century. It wasn’t until 1970 that Congress passed the Controlled Substances Act and classified hemp as a Schedule 1 drug with strict regulations for its use and cultivation. In 2018, Congress passed the Agricultural Improvement Act that removed hemp and some cannabis products from the Controlled Substances Act, thereby making it more readily available.
Post 7- Full-Spectrum vs. Isolate
There are two terms you need to learn when understanding CBD. They are full-spectrum and isolate. A full-spectrum product still comes from the same cannabis sativa plant but must contain less than 0.3% THC. It is processed in a way that allows it to retain the terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids. The downside is the small amount of THC can cause a person to fail a drug test. Some individuals are also more susceptible to the effects of THC and may have a negative experience. The benefits of a full-spectrum oil are the terpenes that create a synergistic effect in the body when combined with CBD.
CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. Supercritical CO2 Extraction is used to remove everything from the product except the CBD compounds. This leaves you with a product with 0.00% THC. Because it is an isolate, there are no trace amounts of THC, which means it will not interact with drug testing. By isolating the CBD compounds we can ensure safety, purity, and therapeutic value of the CBD. In order to get a synergistic effect, we can use therapeutic grade essential oils to add terpenes back to the product thereby creating a controlled broad spectrum CBD. Synchronicity Hemp Oil is not held back by seedy extraction processes and poor plant matter sources. They bring to consumers not only a CBD product, but an entire process designed to make said CBD work as well as possible!
Post 8- What are terpenes?
Terpenes are the key to getting the synergistic effect with your CBD. Terpenes are aromatic hydrocarbons that are found in the essential oils of a plant. They effect the CB1 and CB2 receptors and neurotransmitters in the brain. Some of the most common terpenes are Myrcene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Terpineol, Menthol and Linalool. You can take 2 powerful products, CBD and therapeutic-grade essential oils, and make them even more powerful by using them together.
A therapeutic-grade essential oil is one that is tested for purity and potency and one that has the highest standards for sourcing. Young Living Essential Oils has been around for over 25 years and is the industry leader in essential oils providing therapeutic grade essential oils and oil-infused products. These terpene-rich essential oils have been used for centuries to increase overall health and wellness.
Post 9- Why use CBD?
You may be wondering the benefits of this powerful product. Science has a lot to say on this topic. One thing to consider when researching CBD oil is whether the study looks at CB1 or CB2 receptors. If a study is only looking at CB1 receptors, then the product they are testing is medical marijuana and the cannabinoid THC. Some studies test CBD and THC together to see the synergistic benefits of the combination on the body while others just test CBD.
It is important to remember that CB1 receptors primarily affect the central nervous system and the brain. CB2 receptors mainly affect the digestive and immune systems, as well as the peripheral nervous system. This means CBD can have a supportive effect on these parts of the body and can be used for daily maintenance. Many people have reported a decrease in their symptoms when using CBD daily, especially for supporting an individual with chronic health issues.
Because of the impact on the digestive system, CBD can increase serotonin and thereby increase mood and reduce occasional anxiety. This is a common symptom many women experience after giving birth, due to fluctuating hormones. Endocannabinoids can be naturally found in breast milk, and CBD isolate is generally thought to be safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers. CBD can also be used topically to soothe sore muscles and joints and to support a healthy skeletal system.
Post 10- How to use CBD
CBD is a versatile product that can be used in many different ways. Before dosing CBD oil for yourself, it is important to decide which application method will be best for your specific needs. Some application methods are more effective than others at targeting specific issues. There are three main application methods:
This method can be used for things like skin support and muscle or joint support. The CBD absorbs into the skin. However, very little, if any, absorbs into the bloodstream. It can be used by itself or partnered with oral application for an even bigger impact. CBD isolate can be mixed into lotions, creams, and salves for topical usage.
For most people starting a CBD regimen, it is best to start with a smaller amount and work your way up, increasing incrementally until you find your optimal dose. It is more important to take the product consistently than it is to take larger doses infrequently. Most individuals can start out with 5 drops (1/4 dropper) twice a day for a week. After this, the amount can be increased to 10 drops (1/2 dropper) twice a day for one to two weeks. The amount can be adjusted up or down based on your specific needs.

The amount of CBD a person needs will vary by individual. For individuals with more moderate health concerns, you would start with the lower dose and ramp up more quickly. For significant health concerns, you would start with a higher dose and gradually increase until you find your desired amount.
Post 11- CBD & Essential Oils
To increase the impact of CBD isolate, therapeutic grade essential oils can be added or used in combination. As with CBD dosing, you want to consider the application method that would make the most sense for your health needs. A good reference book for essential oils can help you to see which terpene-rich oils might be best for your specific needs and how to apply them. Therapeutic grade essential oils can be used in a similar way as CBD. There are three primary application methods: topical, internal, and aromatic.
Therapeutic grade essential oils can be applied directly to the skin. They can be used for skin support, muscle and joint support, and relaxation. Some oils may create a warm sensation on the skin and are best diluted with a carrier oil when applied. It is best to dilute oils when applying to young children as well. If you use essential oils with your CBD oil topically, the MCT oil in the CBD will act as a carrier oil. Using the carrier oil will increase absorption of the essential oils.
Therapeutic grade essential oils can also be used internally. For this method, I only recommend the use of Young Living Essential Oils (YLEOs). It is imperative that essential oils be tested to ensure purity. Young Living has a strict Seed to Seal commitment that guarantees the oils will be of the highest quality, tested for purity, and grown and harvested in a sustainable manner.
YL Vitality oils can be taken in capsules, added to food or drinks, placed under the tongue, or taken in oil-infused supplements. When taken with CBD, the essential oils will increase the effect of the CBD. For example, orange vitality can be taken with CBD to boost immunity, increase mood, support heart health, and aid in relaxation.
This method of application involves breathing in the essential oils. You can place a drop of essential oil into your hand and cup over your nose before breathing deeply. You can also use a diffuser to get oil molecules into the air.
When essential oils are breathed into the nose, they trigger the olfactory nerve which sends a signal to the limbic system located in the back of the brain. The oil molecules are so small they are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and have a positive impact on the brain.
Post 12- Conclusion
As you can see, there are a variety of ways to use both CBD oil and therapeutic grade essential oils in a safe and healthy manner. When used together, they create something even more powerful and life-changing. Scientists are now able to see why these plant-based products have been used for hundreds of years with very few, if any, side effects. I encourage you to make these products part of your daily wellness routine and experience the benefits first hand. Welcome to the new frontier of plant-based wellness!
