Medical Marijuana Alternative? Green Flower Botanicals Announce New Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Strains with Terpenes

Valrico, Florida – Green Flower Botanicals, a nutrient and botanicals company announces their new strain specific, hemp oil tinctures and vape products.

If you have ever visited a medical marijuana dispensary you will be familiar with the many different strains available to treat a variety of conditions. Names like ACDC, Watermelon Kush, Grandaddy Purple, and AK-47 are just a few of the strains available in most marijuana dispensaries.

In the world of medical marijuana, one strain will be preferred over another because of the effects that particular strain might have in treating a specific type of condition. Some strains are more suited for daytime use, while others are better for nighttime. Certain strains work well to relieve anxiety, while others may be preferred for headaches, nausea, chronic pain or even fighting cancer.

Green Flower Botanicals is among the first companies in the hemp oil industry to manufacture a line of strain specific, full spectrum hemp oil products. Rich Carey, the co-founder of GFB explains. “We formulate our strain specific hemp oils by analyzing the terpene profiles of some of the most popular medical marijuana strains and then recreating them by adding specific plant terpenes to our full-spectrum hemp oil.”

When asked about the benefits of this new hemp oil, Carey states, “when many people think about marijuana, they automatically think about getting high because of THC. But in reality, there’s a whole lot more to this plant than just its psychoactive effect. Cannabis has over 400 active compounds besides THC that work in concert to create the many healing effects that people are experiencing.  This is largely due to the modulating effect it has on our endocannabinoid system, which regulates many of the other systems in our bodies. Some of the most medicinal compounds found in cannabis are terpenes. When you are talking about certain cannabis strains, for the most part you are talking about the specific terpene profile of the plant.”

Carey continues, “the whole essential oil craze that’s happening right now is really an awakening about the power of terpenes. Natural medicine practitioners have long recognized that many of these terpenes have healing properties of their own.  We have found that by tweaking the terpene profile of our oil, we can potentially customize the benefits the end user may experience by using our products.”

Carey talks a lot about marijuana, but don’t be confused by the comparison. Green Flower Botanicals does not sell marijuana, but is part of an industry that is capitalizing on marijuana’s sister plant, hemp. Hemp is part of the cannabis family and shares most of its genetics and compounds with the marijuana plant. In simplistic terms, the main difference between hemp and marijuana is that hemp contains very minimal amounts psychoactive THC in its make up. Current federal law states that hemp must have a THC content no higher than .3 percent or less or it is considered marijuana.

Low THC cannabis oil made it into the national spotlight when Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, introduced the world to a little girl named Charlotte Figi in his popular documentary titled “WEED”. Charlotte was experiencing over 300 gran mal seizures a week due to an illness named Dravet Syndrome. Just before authorizing a medically induced coma to try and save her life, Charlotte’s family tried a controversial therapy they found on the internet – low THC cannabis oil. The results are now famous – Charlotte went from 300 seizures a week to 2-3 seizures a month, and her life and the lives of her family were forever changed.

Since then, many claim to have found significant relief from a surprising number of ailments – from seizures, PTSD, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and even cancer, with the help of low THC cannabis oil. If you live in a state where medical marijuana is illegal, there is hope for you.  Hemp products are sold as food supplements, and full-spectrum hemp oil can be purchased legally in all 50 states.  For many people, hemp oil is their only option to legally experience the health benefits of cannabis while waiting for legalization of medical marijuana in their state.  Many others, who are concerned about failing drug tests or anyone who wants to avoid the psychoactive effects of marijuana but want the health benefits found in cannabis also find that full spectrum hemp oil is a great alternative.  The motto over at Green Flower Botanicals is, “All Health – No High”.
