For those who are new to the subject… The cannabis plant is made up of male and female plants, with each offering their own attributes. The female, and most notorious, is the one that produces the flowers, which are known as marijuana. The female flowers are the ones that produce THC, the compound or cannabinol that makes you feel ‘high.’ The male plant does not produce flowers, but is responsible for creating seeds and is the producer of hemp. Within the male plant is a range of cannabinoids that have been proven to assist in a myriad of medicinal applications, like for sleep, eating disorders, seizures and more, which I will get into further in the next paragraph. Of these cannabinoids, CBD is extracted and can be used as a topical treatment, ingested as an oil or a tincture, and can be made in food or vaped, depending on one’s personal preference.
I recently reached out to Endoca to test their CBD formula, and they were kind enough to send over their Hemp oil which contains 15% CBD in their 10ml bottle, a total of 1500mg of CBD, and their 99% Pure CBD Crystals, a total of 500mg of CBD. The typical recommended dosage is 25mg per day, which totally depends on the person, the desired effects, and the ailments one wishes to treat. For me, I suffer from insomnia at times, from stress wear, and anxiety, and I found some relief with the help of CBD. So, for the past month, I’ve trailed Endoca’s CBD oil and I made some healing icy-hot salves with their pure CBD crystals, and found them both to work great.
The crystals were a lot of fun to work with, as they melt easily into butter, and can be used in food or in topical applications, so as I mentioned above, I made a salve, combining: Shea butter, beeswax, coconut oil, other carrier oils, essential oils, and the CBD crystals. I melted everything together in a double-boiler before pouring them into individual tins to setup. I applied the salve to my aching muscles and the pains that I regularly deal with in my neck and back, and I have to say that the effect was immediate as it helps me sleep and feel relaxed while easing pain. All in all, I came away very impressed with the quality of Endoca’s product.
