The human body has what is called an endocannabinoid system inside our brains and nervous systems. According to Wikipedia, “The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, pregnancy during pre- and post-natal development, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis.”
That’s quite a mouthful of technical and medical jargon, isn’t it? Here’s what it means in plain English: your body and central nervous system are actually DESIGNED to work with cannabinoids. Because of that, hemp is a true wonder of nature. No, we probably don’t need the THC found in marijuana (although it MAY have some health benefits), but we do need the benefits of the many cannabinoids found in hemp, especially CBD!
While CTFO refrains from making any medical claims for CBD oil, there is a large body of medical and scientific research extolling the many benefits of this natural product. Some people are reporting relief and help for a wide variety of health issues. We say, it’s GOOD FOR YOU. Try it and see if it helps with a problem you’re having. If it does, great. Tell your family and friends about it. We choose to let our CBD oil speak for itself. Our oils are of the highest purity and are independently tested for potency by an outside laboratory. We are even bold enough to post those lab results right on our website!
CTFO offers full spectrum oil (CBD plus all the other cannabinoids found in hemp, but with less than 0.3% THC (which means it is effectively THC free!). The full spectrum oil is taken orally under the tongue and comes in 300, 500, 750 and 1500 mg CBD strengths. We also have CBD isolate oil (completely free of all other cannabinoids other than CBD) in strengths of 500 and 1500 mg. These may be preferred by those who are required to take a drug test for employment. Please note that some drug tests do look for more than just THC, so CTFO cannot guarantee you will pass a drug test if using these products, including the Isolate products.
CBD oil is the hottest thing to hit the nutritional market in decades. According to Cannabis research firm Brightfield Group, the CBD market will be a $5.7 billion market by next year, and a $22 billion market by 2022. So not only is CBD good for your health… it’s good for your WEALTH.
CBD for pain
“Underdiagnosed and undertreated, chronic pain amounts to an unrecognized public health crisis afflicting more than 116 million adult Americans each year and costing the nation $560 billion to $635 billion annually in medical and economic expenses.” (Institute of Medicine report). This is not only an issue in the USA, but also in most western countries. Back, knee, joint… you name it – it hurts.
This is also a major factor in the current opioid crisis, because opioid drugs were over-prescribed in an attempt to control their discomfort. We have several CBD-based products that may help with pain.
First, CBD oil is favored by many people who are trying to deal with pain as well as reducing the intake of other often toxic forms of relief. Our full spectrum oil comes in multiple strengths: 300, 500, 750 and 1500 mg. It is taken in droplets under the tongue once or even twice a day. The full spectrum oil is guaranteed to contain less than 0.3% THC, which is the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. You will never feel any “buzz” from our CBD oils!
For those who have sensitive jobs and are required to take drug tests, we also have CBD Isolate oils in 500 and 1500 mg strengths. These oils are THC free.
In addition to the oils, CTFO has Ultimate Pain Cream with CBD and emu oil in two strengths: 60 and 150 mg. Ultimate Pain Cream is great for sore and aching muscles and joints. It may also help relieve pain from older injuries. Finally, CTFO also offers Pain Free-ze Rub with CBD oil. Each jar contains 50 mg of CBD plus menthol to give a cool sensation and help sore muscles.
All you need to do is pick the right pain approach for you. Or try two or three!
As we all know, the skin is the largest organ in the human body. Your skin can not only absorb harmful toxins from things you are exposed to – it can also absorb nutrients and healing lotions and oils. How do CBD and our CTFO products play into this phenomenon?
First, we have our Ultimate Deep Healing Pain Cream with Emu Oil. This salve is infused with either 60mg CBD oil (1 oz size) or 250 mg in the 2 oz size. It’s the perfect solution for painful joints and muscles.
We also have our Pain Free-ze Rub with 50 mg of pure CBD oil plus menthol for cold therapy. Especially good for aching muscles after a tough workout. There is also a roll-on version of this with 100 mg CBD.
You deserve a good night’s rest!
Melatonin, a natural occurring hormone in the brain, is released to promote sleep at night. Unfortunately, as we age, environmental factors, such as artificial light reduce the Melatonin our bodies are able to produce, resulting in lack of sleep. Our Sleep Support Spray is combined with a special blend of CBD, Melatonin & nutrients such as Valerian Root to help promote long and restful sleep.
This product is great for those experiencing difficulty falling or staying asleep. Simply spray two sprays under your tongue before bed and within minutes you will feel your body relax and your mind quiet as you drift off to sleep. Scientifically tested to be safe and effective!
Do you have a dog or cat with separation anxiety? Are they afraid of thunderstorms or other loud noises? Or does your pet just seem to “go crazy” sometimes when you want them to calm down? Maybe our CBD pet products are the answer. Because all mammals have endocannabinoid systems, CBD can have a positive impact on pets as well as humans.
Studies have shown that CBD can help pets with loss of appetite, anxiety, aging, aching joints, cancer, glaucoma, inflammation, seizures, aggression and neurological disorders. If you have an older pet, CBD may put new life into them!
CTFO offers chew treats for pets CBD sprays and oils, and a pet conditioning shampoo. If your pet is “like family,” you’ll want them to have the benefits of CBD just like you do.
Imagine how fantastic it will be for your dog or cat to be completely at ease around the house, even when you need to leave for work or errands. Imagine having your older pet “come to life” again. Pets experience anxiety and stress just like we do. CBD treats and sprays can help them cope.
Our immune system is what protects us from disease and attacks from harmful bacteria and viruses. So it’s really important to keep it strong. Good nutrition is one of the key factors in keeping your immune system strong.
Nutritional studies have indicated that SEVEN key “superfruits” are instrumental in helping to nourish the immune system. These are Mangosteen, Goji Berry, Acai Fruit, Amalaki, Pomegranate, Cranberry, and Blueberry. In addition, these superfruits seem to create a burst of energy.
Super7 is a delicious chewable combination of these seven superfruits. Just chewing two a day may help you maintain a stronger immune system. The chewables are naturally flavored and contain NO artificial sweeteners. They are also gluten-free. There is 325 mg of our proprietary superfruit blend in every one! Chew one in the morning and another in the afternoon for an energy filled day!
Imagine going through cold and flu seasons without having to worry so much about getting sick like everybody else around you. Feeling ready to go every morning as you take on your day. Super7 is what everybody needs.
It’s no secret. Obesity in the United States is a major health issue, resulting in numerous diseases, specifically increased risk of certain types of cancer, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, as well as significant economic costs. While many industrialized countries have experienced similar increases, obesity rates in the United States are the highest in the world. (Reuters report)
What do we mean by “obese”? If a person’s body weight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is between 25 and 29.9 you are considered overweight. If your BMI is 30 or over you are considered obese. (Medical News Today) Your BMI is your weight in pounds times 703 divided by the SQUARE of your height in inches.
It’s not just those who are truly obese. Increasing numbers of Americans are significantly overweight, exposing themselves to all the risks associated with obesity itself. The primary cause of this problem is a diet rich in simple carbohydrates (primarily sugar and white flour). Many people say they would like to lose weight, but they don’t know how. Or they have continuous CRAVINGS for sweet snacks, candy, donuts, cookies, ice cream… Sound familiar?
CTFO has found the answer to this problem. First, we created ChewOffs, a chewable snack that you can take between meals with a full glass of water. ChewOffs help fight those CRAVINGS for sweet stuff. Only 5 calories and 2 grams of carbs.
Second, CTFO created a complete MEAL REPLACEMENT shake called ShakeOff. It comes in two delicious flavors and is only 170 calories and 18 grams of carbs. (chocolate ShakeOff). You can replace 2 meals a day and fight your cravings while consuming only 350 calories. That’s the equivalent of a bowl of soup or oatmeal. If you following with one sensible, low-carb meal, you will start to see those pounds and inches drop quickly.
CTFO actually started out as a weight loss company. These classic products are the answer to one of the biggest health problems in most western countries.
