Hemp Products From Global Xtracts
Global Xtracts is a new line of natural medicine derived from the hemp plant. Many people are confused when talking about the differences between hemp and marijuana. Although they are each part of the same genus, cannabis, each are grown for specific reasons.
Hemp is grown primarily for textiles, oil, topicals and construction. There are less than 3 percent of THC cannabinoids in hemp, making it neutral when it comes to the intoxicating effect. Hemp-driven medicine, then, is non-psychoactive, and can target skeletal and muscular pain without bringing on the “high” associated with marijuana and its increased THC levels.
There are over 110 identified cannabinoids in cannabis. Each of these offer a number of medicinal properties that scientists are using to create whole, natural medicine. Identifying and isolating individual cannabinoids is helping chemists create targeted medicine for very specific conditions.
Using full-spectrum, or a comprehensive use of most of the cannabinoids available in the plant, Global Xtracts offers a proprietary strain of organically grown hemp, rich in phytocannabinoid oil. Because of the full-spectrum products, CBD is not the only beneficial cannabinoid being used. The entourage effect is where all of the cannabinoids are synthesized together. This allows for a broad-range of helping and healing qualities, rather than individually targeted symptoms.
The Global Xtracts product line is of the highest quality and purity. It’s tested through chromatography, and having a third-party batch test ensures accurate high levels of phytocannabinoids and confirms the absence of THC.
Currently, the new line of medicine comes in three forms: tinctures, softgels and pain relief balm. CBD Tinctures (250mg, 500mg and 1,000mg) contain cannabidiol (CBD) oil in high concentrations and are created using full spectrum hemp oil that is combined with hemp seed oil, grape seed oil or coconut oil. Tinctures are intended for sublingual application. The CBD Softgels are pharmaceutical grade and contain 10mg or 25mg per capsule. They are available in original, melatonin and curcumin formulas. The high-potency CBD Pain Relief Balm is available in 300mg and 1,000mg and is created with beeswax and medium chain triglycerides, as well as essential oils. Balms are all-natural and are intended for topical application.
The growing popularity of alternative medicine, plant medicine in particular, ensures that new research and development of safe, healthy products will continue. As the country gains ground in the war on opioid use and addiction, it’s good to know that the options continue to increase when it comes to preventative and ongoing health care.
Because their products contain no THC, Global Xtracts ships products nationwide. Arizona medical marijuana patients may purchase Global Xtracts from Earth’s Healing Dispensary, in Tucson. Visit
