Our whole plant hemp CBD oil consists of the entire hemp plant including the root, as well as all of the beneficial 400 chemical entities of which more than 60 of them are cannabinoid compounds. This includes hundreds of compounds like cannabidiol (CBD), secondary cannabinoids, terpenoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. All of these compounds work together to increase the beneficial effects of CBD.

Fact: The Chinese have been using Hemp roots since the third millennium BCE. The root was juiced then used for its diuretic properties and would slow the bleeding during childbirth. The Romans boiled hemp root in water and drank the contents, believing it reduced joint stiffness and inflammation, as well as gout.

Plant medicine is nothing new, “modern herbalists recognize that the healing power of a plant lies in the interactions of all its various components. All of these compounds working together is called the “Entourage Effect,” a term first used by two Israeli scientists in 1998 to describe their findings: That taking all of the natural chemical compounds found in hemp together was more beneficial than isolating a single compound like CBD. CBD is certainly one of the most important compounds, but the hemp plant contains a host of other compounds that all work together with the Endocannabinoid System to helpfully affect processes like sleep, digestion, hormone regulation, inflammation and cognition.
