Sacred Oil Whole Hemp Plant Infusion
Sacred Oil is produced using only the highest quality, CBD-rich, bioavailable, organic hemp plants. Grown naturally outdoors, on soil untouched by either pesticides or artificial fertilizers, our oil is GMO, pollutant, and toxin free.
Using a timeless, natural water extraction process, we harness the full restorative potential of the hemp plant in our Whole Hemp Plant Infusion – essential for achieving what is known as the Entourage Effect. A Full Spectrum of beneficial and complementary compounds, including Cannabidiol (CBD) is present in every drop of our oil, creating a perfect balance, as nature intended.
Unlike CBD isolates – a stripped down, pure form of CBD – Sacred Oil Whole Plant Infusion is made using the whole plant, incorporating a full, vast range of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds.
The Entourage Effect
“The Entourage Effect” is a term first coined in 1998 by pioneering Israeli scientists Shimon Ben-Shabat and Raphael Mechoulam (the first scientist to determine the structure of CBD) and is designed to explain how the cannabis plant’s beneficial properties are more evident when all its compounds are present, their studies concluding that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
The Entourage Effect is an important reason our Sacred Oil Whole Hemp Plant Infusion works so well. Scientists have now identified over 100 compounds in the cannabis plant, each having their own unique therapeutic benefit. Combined they offer a synergy that amplifies the overall effect, making our infusion one of the best available.
Understanding the Difference Between CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum products
We believe taking isolates are better than no CBD at all, but you won’t experience the same range of positive effects that you’ll get with Sacred Oil Whole Hemp Plant Infusion. Full Spectrum CBD products, unlike CBD isolates, include the full range of cannabinoids present in the hemp plant.
Using the whole plant has two key advantages; firstly you gain the additional benefits of taking vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fibre. Secondly there’s the aforementioned Entourage Effect, a phenomenon that suggests the beneficial properties of the plant are better realised when the full range of compounds are present. This seems to have been proved by an important study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School in 2015, which concluded that full spectrum was more effective than isolated CBD. For this reason a growing number of companies in the CBD industry are switching to Full Spectrum products.
What Does Sacred Oil Whole Hemp Plant Infusion Contain?
While much has been written on THC and CBD, there are many less well known cannabinoids that we’re still learning about, with some interesting therapeutic effects.
One of the “Big Six” cannabinoids, the benefits of CBC are still largely unknown but are thought to have medicinal potential. Its main advantage could be in its synergistic effect with other cannabinoids.
Recent studies with CBG have been looking into its potential as a vasodilator and antibacterial agent, as well as its possible neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties.
When THC oxidises, you get CBN. Researchers have been investigating CBN’s potential.
Lesser known cannabinoids include:
Cannabicyclol (CBL), Cannabitriol (CBT), Cannabicitran (CBT), and Cannabifuran (CBF)
Terpenes are the chemical component within the cannabis plant that gives it its unique aroma and may play an important role in assisting the effects of cannabinoids.
Vitamins and Minerals
Sacred Oil Whole Hemp Plant Infusion contains vitamins A, C, & E along with complex B vitamins such as niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, beta-carotene, and essential minerals including zinc, potassium, iron, calcium, and phosphorus.
Essential Fats and Proteins
Sacred Oil Whole Hemp Plant Infusion also contains up to 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids. In addition you will find essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6 (in the optimal 3:1 ratio) which help promote better heart health.
