TELFORD, Penn., August 29, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The origins of hemp in healing and well-being date back over 10,000 years. More recently, in 1683, the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed a bill into law encouraging every farmer to grow hemp. By the early 1700s, Lancaster County was the hemp capital of America. Unfortunately, hemp got caught up in the canvas regulations on marijuana in the 1930s. After decades of misinformation and regulation, Bucks County based company, Elevate® CBD, is leading the movement to bring the many health and well-being benefits of hemp-derived CBD back to consumers.
In pre-Revolutionary America, hemp was grown for raw materials that were used to make thousands of goods; its fiber and stalks were used in clothing, paper, and construction products. Hemp seeds which are high in protein and noted for their Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids were used in recipes and pressed for oil. Hemp oil was used to treat pain, inflammation as well as other ailments.
Due to hemp's classification within the cannabis family, it was banned in the U.S. in accordance with the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act. Due to years of advocacy, increases in research internationally and better understanding into phyto- and biochemistry, opportunities were created for Elevate® CBD to advance education and availability of products that promote health and well-being.
Elevate® CBD has been engaged in the study of cannabinoids for over three years. Elevate® CBD is manufactured in a CGMP facility in Bucks County in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration guidelines. The CBD used in Elevate®’s products is sourced internationally today but 16 hemp growing agricultural pilots have been approved across the Commonwealth, including at Penn State University.
Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids which interact with the body’s systems to maintain balance and trigger healing. Scientists have been studying the potential connections between cannabinoid imbalances and pain signals. Hemp-derived CBD provides a boost to the cannabinoids produced by our body to support the body’s response to pain, inflammation, and healing.
Elevate® CBD is on the cutting edge of restoring access to an ancient plant-based remedy. As consumers continue to look for more natural, holistic paths to healing and balanced health, it’s time to look into hemp-derived products as an option.
