non-psychoactive CBD Oil from industrial hemp with zero THC

CBD - Cannabidiol  Helps Regulate :

* Pain     * Memory     * Motor Control     * Temperature

* Sleep     * Appetite     * Mood     *Immune Function     *Reproduction




Becoming "younger" ... healthier, happier, more energetic, enhanced virility, smarter, relief from joint and back pain.     (and I tell you what I mean about each of those words below) 

My Own Experience:  After being contacted by a trusted advisor in CA regarding his client successes with CBD / Zero THC oil, I read daily for a month, and began taking a 10mg dose of CBD tincture daily.  I read in a number of articles, that some realized a calming effect in as little as 3 days.  And others were saying it relieved pain in about 10 days.  In my personal experiment, after 10 days I didn't think it was doing anything, but had decided I'd give it a one-month trail and then decide if I should continue taking it.

After 14 days, I noticed one evening how good I felt.  It was 10 pm and I was working at my computer, with plenty of energy and clarity.  Then I became aware, that I had done the same thing the past 3 days ... yet for the prior couple years when at home by myself, typically I had been "ready to shut down" by 8:00. 

I've continued to use the oil, both capsules which I now take, and tincture for 3 months, and until / unless I find something better, my intention is to continue CBD supplements daily for the rest of my life.  I've become "a younger version of myself" ... enjoying more energy and clarity of thought.  Others who know me have noticed and commented. There are plenty of scientific studies and evidence that prove mind & body lifestyle practices improve wellbeing. 

Younger                        This is subjective - based on how I feel and how I'm thinking and acting.  Everything is connected, so I acknowledge improved lifestyle choices and practices as contributing also to my overall energetic wellness and performance.  But I can tell you that feeling better and having more energy seems like it was initially a function of adding CBD oil to my daily diet (with no other changes in routine).  I've eliminated a number of other supplements, with their cost more than off-setting what I spend on CBD oil.  

Healthier                       Would you consider yourself "healthier" if you began to have more energy and thoughts about improving your overall health ... and then took actions to improve both diet and exercise as a consequence of improved mental clarity with intentions that generated good action choices?  I do.  And I am.

Happier                          What improves your "happy states of being"?  We all probably know that a large percentage of Americans take prescriptions drugs for anxiety, stress, depression.  If there were an all-natural solution with no side-effects, wouldn't a supplemental herb make more sense?  If you'd like to feel like you're more in control of your emotions without in any way having them "numbed out" ... rather being able to actually feel the full spectrum of your divine emotions with the clarity of an inquisitive mind ... maybe you'd like to consider beginning your own experiment.

More energetic            At my age (currently 70 at this writing) it's nice to experience increased libido and overall energy.  I believe CBD oil definitely helped me, and that's why I'll continue to take it.  This is just my truth ... there seems to be overwhelming evidence to support these kind of statements, but you'll have to decide that for yourself.  The data is offered further down the page.  I seem to be sleeping more soundly with very few "negative thoughts" intruding, and that alone helps boost energy. 

Enhanced virility         When that little blue pill arrived in the marketplace, it seemed like a godsend for many, and of course it was an economic boom for drug companies.  What if there were natural products that worked as well or better?  Well, I wasn't taking Viagra or any of the others ... but over the past few months my performance has certainly returned to a more youthful state.  Reduced stress with a clear confident mind improve intimacy performance.  That "mental aspect" may be as or more important as any direct consequence of the supplement on the physical body.

Smarter                   Intelligence is sometimes measured by what we can remember ... like on a test.  With improved memory, it would then seem to follow in my mind, that I may be considered "smarter" ... or at least that is how others would perceive me when my mental state is "sharper" and more reliable.  I believe this helped in that regard. 

Pain Relief               CBD is my "go to" supplement now for feeling like I like to feel ... free of discomfort from achy joints and pain in my back.  I had already overcome those symptoms through other practices and supplements.  It's just that I realized I may no longer need to continue taking the other pills if I was supplementing with CBD oil, and that has proven to be true for me.  If you happen to be burdened with chronic pain, consider calling ... it's my primary area of expertise.

How it works

Forever, herbs and natural remedies of the Earth have been used to help man regulate the body.  I personally am most fascinated by our mind’s   ability to be trained toward self-regulation, and as a Wellness Educator  provide programs and processes for such, but if I’m going to supplement my thoughts with something I’d ingest … then I want it to be all-natural. 

Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body, giving them a wide variety of  functions. However, certain receptors are more concentrated in specific regions.   CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are more often found on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract, and in the peripheral nervous system.  The diversity of receptor locations shows just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function. 

When the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly, you are more susceptible to illnesses that affect one or several of the functions listed above.  Dis-regulation in the ECS is also thought to contribute to a wide variety of other conditions, including fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.

I believe that I may have the best thing to supplement the workings of what connects our mindbodies reaction to events.  “Hemp oil products help to relieve discomfort, support sleep, support the body’s interrelated signaling systems (the endocannabinoid systems) and promote an overall sense of balance and homeostasis to the body.”  I encourage you to view educational information including a 3-min video by Dr. Dustin Sulak at





Pain-Free  . . .  without Opioids!  and with no psychotropic "high".  No THC.

whole plant hemp and herbs in jars

All of these compounds working together is called the “Entourage Effect,”                                           a term created by two Israeli scientists in 1998 to describe their findings that taking                                        all of the natural chemical compounds found in hemp was more beneficial than                                       isolating a single compound like CBD.

CBD is certainly the star of the show, but the hemp plant contains a host of other                               compounds that all work together with the Endocannabinoid System to affect                                    processes like sleep, digestion, hormone regulation, inflammation and cognition.

We believe that nature got it right the first time, and that the hemp plant is perfect                               just like it is, so there’s no need to take part of it out or throw any of it away. In fact,                             though it was previously believed that CBD isolates were more potent than whole                                   plant CBD, a 2015 study proved that whole plant cannabidiol was far more effective                                    in treating pain and inflammation than isolated CBD, and the whole plant CBD had                                better results at lower doses than using isolated CBD.

While isolating desirable compounds is standard practice in western medicine,                                           we believe that taking a more holistic view of your health involves a more                                           (w)holistic approach to everything you put in your body. With that in mind, we use                                      the whole hemp plant to make our Clarify tinctures, capsules and salves so that                                      they, and you, can function as nature intended.

vintage school teacher and hemp history


Humans have long used hemp for a multitude of purposes, but our history with this highly versatile plant is a bit tumultuous. Fortunately, cultural perception is shifting, and more people and governments are recognizing the many benefits of hemp as plant medicine and an agricultural resource.

In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, hemp was used for clothing, sails, rope, plastics, paper, food, and even cars! It is naturally pest resistant, can be grown in almost any kind of soil, and requires very little maintenance. As a result, hemp was incredibly popular, but eventually became illegal. How did this happen?

The short answer is that financial magnates with names like Hearst and DuPont knew that the economy and versatility of the hemp plant presented a threat to their empires in tree-based paper and fuel.

These men knew that they’d never be able to ban hemp outright, as everyone appreciated its many uses and and benefits to the American economy. But, through some heavy political maneuvering and a bit of yellow journalism, these heads of industry began to associate the hemp plant with an obscure Mexican slang word “marihuana” – and began claiming it was responsible for everything from car accidents to immoral behavior of every flavor. They may not be able to ban hemp, but they could certainly get the American public to vote against something that threatened the moral fiber of society.

And so, despite thousands of years in the useful employ of humankind, hemp was recast as a menace, regulated as a narcotic, defamed, banned and its benefits largely ignored.

Until recently, when state and municipal governments have gone against the feds in recognition of hemp’s many benefits, and allowed this ancient plant to have a positive impact on modern society.



8000 BCE
The ancient Chinese domesticated hemp from a wild plant into a cultivated crop.

600 BCE
Hemp rope appears in southern Russia.

Hemp was deemed so valuable to young America that it was against the law to refuse to grow it during the 1600-1800’s. In fact you could be jailed in Virginia from 1763-1769 if you refused to farm hemp.(1)

These articles were used as part of the testimony Congress used to support the ban.

Hemp was dubbed the ‘Billion Dollar Crop’ by Popular Mechanics. It was the first time a cash crop was estimated to exceed a billion dollars value mark.

Henry Ford builds an experimental car body made from hemp fiber that ran on hemp ethanol fuel. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel.

Hemp is banned in the U.S.

The last hemp crop was harvested and processed.

The Controlled Substances Act is passed, prohibiting cannabis federally along with several other drugs and replacing the 1937 act.

1972The Shafer Commission urged that the use of cannabis be re-legalized, their recommendation is ignored.

President Carter and his assistant for drug policy, Dr. Peter Bourne, pushed for decriminalization of marijuana. President Carter asked Congress to abolish federal criminal penalties for those caught with less than an ounce of marijuana.
