It seems as though there are half a dozen “National <insert name here>” days for each day of the year. It can be somewhat annoying hearing about this day and that day, but we at VH believe it’s actually quite exciting. Yesterday was National Fresh Breath Day (which should be every day) and today is National Purple Heart Day (which should also be every day; thank you all for your sacrifice and service). But tomorrow, August 8th, is National CBD Day, which is of course a big deal for us. But why? What IS the deal with CBD and why is it so popular?
For the sake of my time and your sanity, I’m not going to completely cover CBD, its functions on the body, and all that jazz (at least not in this article). Instead I’m going to highlight why we at VH love CBD so much and why others feel the same way.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 112 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It’s impact on the endocannabinoid system results in an overwhelming amount of benefits with seemingly no risks or adverse effects. There are many ways to extract CBD and many ways to make a usable product. Through trial and error, we believe we’ve found the best way for both. For us, the extraction lab uses food grade ethanol to separate cannabinoids from the hemp plant to create a full-spectrum compound comprised predominately of CBD. That compound is then added to high quality extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) for our orally ingested products. EVOO has been found to have superior absorption for soft-tissue applications (i.e. tongue and cheek). As a final, touch we add some flavoring for a variety of tincture options to better suit everyone’s taste.
It’s not hard to find a list of CBD benefits online and that’s because CBD has helped so many people! As owners, we regularly use our own products to actively combat chronic back pain (you vets know where I’m coming from) as well as bouts of anxiety and other ailments. The benefits we experience fuel our motivation to create products that others could also enjoy. Our customers have reported a range of benefits spanning from the “best sleep in ten years” to “reduced tremors caused by Parkinson’s.” Pets even benefit from the effects of our Full Spectrum CBD Pet Tinctures as well, with observably less anxiety and better temperament!
In celebration of National CBD Day, we would like to introduce three new products! Available starting today is a lovely moisturizing CBD face and skin serum, a manly CBD cedar beard oil, and, for those of you who don’t like the taste of cannabis, Full Spectrum CBD gel capsules. We believe in our products so much that we’re applying killer discounts across the site from 8/7 through 8/11.
We invite you to try some (or all) of our products and hope that you take advantage of these discounts while they last. As always, if you are ever unsatisfied with our products or services, reach out to us and we’ll do everything we can to make it right. Happy National CBD Day!
