El Dorado has a new business that sells CBD products.
Sacred Leaf, 2348 W. Central, Suite A., sells a variety of products that contain cannabidiol – CBD for short – which are becoming more and more popular as medicinals to treat everything from anxiety, to joint pain to seizures.
CBD comes from the hemp plant, which although related to the marijuana plant, does not contain THC, the ingredient that has psychoactive effects. Hemp and marijuana are different plants.
Along with CBD extraction, hemp is grown as a fiber to make clothing, rope and building materials.
For decades, hemp had been classified as a controlled substance by the federal government.
The new farm bill, recently signed into law, removes this designation and reclassifies hemp as an agricultural product.
“I’m a believer,” stated store owner Garen Parker, “I was an electrician for years and the pain in my knees was constant.“
CBD is favored by many people as an alternative to typical pain medications, explained Parker. “These products are so beneficial.“
A lot of study and research also went into his decision to open the store. “Not only was I helped, but now I’m enjoying seeing others receive the same help.“
Parker also shared his 78 year-old mother-in-law’s story of being addicted to painkillers.
“She was on narcotics and had high blood pressure,” he continued, “After taking CBD, she’s down to a half of a Lortab at night and her blood pressure has stayed down.“
He has many stories from customers who have shared their benefits from the CBD products.
Sacred Leaf’s products are all natural with no gluten or GMOs, and comes from industrial hemp, with no THC, but powerful enough to give all the medical benefits of the Cannabis family.
CBD’s main function is to return your body to balance, meaning it will help reduce inflammation thereby relieveing pain, it will lower anxiety and cortisol levels to ease your mind and it will work with your medications to make them more effective, thereby resulting in you needing less.
Parker shared a few evidence-based CBD oil benefits:
He further explained that the human endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors found virtually everywhere: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.
Many of us are cannabinoid deficient, a syndrome which has been linked with everything from chronic fatigue to fibromyalgia to early onset dementia.
“Hemp was taken out of our lives and routines many years ago and we’ve been fighting with man made drugs. CBD returns the calm and orderly nature without damage.“
There are several delivery methods ranging from dropping oil under your tongue, to drinking drops in water, to topicals to edibles. Response will depend on how you take or where you put it.
Pain cream/lotions – If the pain radiates from a particular spot, begin with the cream. If the pain is arthritis in a specific area, apply the cream directly to that area and feel relief in 10-15 minutes.
Liquid capsules – Capsules are portable and convenient. They offer full body relief in 30-45 minutes and more reliable than a typical edible.
Edibles- Edibles can be a great addition to your daily regime, after you get your body calmed and back to a homeostatic point.
VG – Vegetable Glycerin is an excellent carrier for CBD. Placed under your tongue, added to a drink or smoked in a vape pen, it provides a fast response and recommended for migraines, panic attacks, sinus issues, and as a sleep aide.
The store also carries CBD products for dogs and cats. The products can help with arthritis or anxiety.
Parker explained that CBD products are sold at a lot of “trinket stores”, and it’s hard to know what’s in it exactly.
“That’s why you should choose Sacred Leaf. What we sell is strictly GMO-free, organic, and 100 percent natural with every ingredient extracted from hemp grown right here in Kansas.“
