The Capri CBD Mediterranean Blend & what a daily dose can do for you

With the Mediterranean as our influence, we chose organic ingredients from the region that would not only blend well with the hemp-derived CBD oil but deliver additional health benefits as well. 

Let's talk about what exactly is in our little bottles, and how this blend of ingredients can be of service.* 

Cannabidiol (CBD):  Our organic full spectrum CBD oil is made from hemp grown right here on the farm. These plants have a high cannabinoid content, but a THC content below the legal limit of .3%. This full spectrum CBD extract consists of a wide array of the hemp plant's beneficial alkaloids, in the proper ratios and amounts that nature intended. 

 "CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat."  (Harvard Health Review 2018)

Hempseed Oil: The organic hempseed oil has its very own list of benefits including a high ratio of Omega-6 to Omega -3 fatty acids, a balance that has been shown to not only promote proper cardiovascular function but also support brain health. These essential fatty acids derived from the hemp plant are one of the very few mercury free sources available on this planet! Hempseed oil can also work wonders on your gut flora, helping to balance the complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. 

Olive Oil, a staple in the Mediterranean diet, is an important part of our CBD oil blend as well. 

Cold Pressed Olive Oil: At harvest time, the olives are picked and washed with cold water. They are ground into paste and spun in a centrifuge which extracts the oil from the olive mixture.  It is known as the “first cold press,” though it’s actually spun instead of pressed. This process usually occurs within 24 hours from the time the olives are harvested.

Olive oil contains large amounts of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, beneficial fatty acids, and modest amounts of Vitamins E and K. Making it a favorable oil to combat brain, heart, and other health concerns.*

Terpenes: Fragrant molecules that provide the hemp plant with its unique aroma and flavor properties. Like Cannabinoids, terpenes can bind to receptors in the brain and stimulate effects like relieving pain, aiding sleep, and reducing inflammation.

To spotlight just one of the many terpenes in our blend:

Limonene, also found in peppermint and rosemary, is a primary terpene found in cannabis. Easily absorbed, it can affect the chemical production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, resulting in a positive mood and attitude. As sourced below in an article from the magazine, Terpenes and Testing, Limonene, "may block chemicals that form cancer and prevent cancer growth". 

Also abundant in the Mediterranean, this final ingredient completes our CBD blend by bringing you a warm citrus spice to each dose. The bergamot fruit is inedible therefore you can only really reap its benefits through an oil extraction of the rind. The zest and flesh of the bergamot fruit are used in Europe as a flavoring in cookies, custards, marmalades, syrups, and cocktails. We are excited to bring you this flavor in our CBD oil blend.

Bergamot: This organic essential oil is famous for the ever loved flavoring of Earl Grey Tea but it also contains a powerful antioxidant which is the main reason it has been incorporated as an ingredient in our blend. This specific anti-oxidant has been linked to desirable outcomes when it comes to disease management.* (Blog post about this coming soon). The benefits of Bergamot are surprisingly refreshing. Praised for boosting your mood by relieving stress and anxiety. Its properties help fight infection, aid in proper digestions, reduce pain, and lower blood pressure.

And there you have it.

We wanted to let you in on why we love our blend so much, hopefully, now you have a better understanding on what a daily dose of our Capri CBD can do for you or a loved one. 

 

And after all that insight, we want to explain that the benefits of these ingredients are not limited to the little paragraphs we have provided for your convenience. We highly encourage you to do some research and learn more about how each of these unique ingredients can benefit you.

With love, from our farm, our hearts, to your table.
