What we do use is an organic carrier oil because hemp concentrate is fat soluble and therefore “infusing with fatty acids is a must to maximize bio-availability”.* **
What is THC?
THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. It is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis that gets people high or stoned. Marijuana has THC in it and can get you high. Hemp does not have THC (or tiny trace amounts) in it and cannot get you high. Maui Majesty products are ONLY made from HEMP and CANNOT get you high.
What is Hemp?
Hemp is Cannabis. Cannabis is a plant genus commonly known as hemp and marijuana. The difference between hemp and marijuana is in the presence of THC.
Hemp plants contain less that 0.3% of THC (almost none).
Marijuana plants contain more than 0.3% THC.
Did you know that products called Essential Oils and Extracts are often processed using toxic solvents? Some examples of these solvents include carbon dioxide, petroleum ether, methanol, propane, even hexane. That is why at Maui Majesty, we make our products using only the plant itself and/or plant concentrates. Concentrates is the word that describes a true essence, with nothing else added or used in any way as a catalyst to produce its product. It is so important to us to make sure that our plants and concentrates are processed in only the purist, safest, and most beneficial way. We do not use any solvents, or any other substances whatsoever to cold press our plant concentrates.
Some say that the solvents are completely separated from the finished product and therefore all toxins are removed from the final product. While others say that it is impossible to remove absolutely 100% of the solvents. Even if it is possible to remove 100% of the solvents, the method used to remove the solvent is by heating it, usually at extreme temperatures. The extreme temperatures used to remove and/or process the solvent is therefore destroying many of the properties, such as the terpenes and enzymes. That is why we do not use solvents, period.
Did you know that extreme heat can destroy much of the health of the plant material when being processed? That is why at Maui Majesty we make sure that we press our plant material only using the cold-press method. This ensures that the plant concentrate that is produced maintains all its living enzymes, terpenes, and properties.
Cannabis researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical School compared an extract containing chemically isolated CBD to a full-spectrum cannabis extract and found the full-spectrum extract was much more effective at fighting pain and inflammation than the extract containing CBD only. “While the pure CBD [isolate] was still effective, the full spectrum extract—which contained a variety of other plant compounds like flavonoids and terpenes—resulted in better, longer lasting relief,” said Christopher Cole of Maui Grown Therapies. “As a pediatric neurologist, I have seen the powerful effects that oral administration of whole plant CBD can have for the treatment of neurological disorders without significant side effects,” said Gregory Yim, MD, Chief Medical Officer for Maui Grown Therapies and Associate Clinical Professor in Neurology at UH’s John A. Burns School of Medicine. The effectiveness of CBD in the treatment of neurological disorders gained national attention in 2013 through Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s television special report entitled Weed. In it, he highlighted a young girl named Charlotte Figi who made headlines when her use of CBD-rich medical cannabis helped her to overcome a rare and severe form of pediatric epilepsy.* **
“CBD” oil has gotten a lot of buzz lately for its healthy properties. The truth is that there are actually at least 113 known compounds in cannabis plants that provide profound effects including CBD, CBG, CBN,and many others.* **
“CBN as a Nueroprotectant
A rodent study by World Federation of Neurology Research Group on Motor Neuron Diseases (2005) found CBN to be beneficial in delaying the onset of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This is a rare neurological disease that involves the neurons responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement. Researchers found that the application of CBN over a twelve week period ‘significantly delays disease onset.’* **
The Antibacterial Properties of CBN
One area where CBN shows significant promise is in combating the problem of antibiotic resistance. An Italian study published in the Journal of Natural Products (2008) – suggested that CBN alongside other cannabinoids displayed ‘potent activity against a variety of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains of current clinical relevance.’* **
Pain and Inflammation
A study published in Faseb Journal (2012) indicated that CBN offers relief for both acute and chronic pain and inflammation associated with certain types of arthritis and fibrosis.* **
