The reason certified organic is so important is because cannabinoids are fat soluble and easily pick up toxins and impurities during the growth and extraction process. Thus, growing CBD hemp organically helps keep Ancient Nutrition’s products free of those toxins and impurities to provide consumers with the cleanest and most potent products possible. Ancient Nutrition’s Organic CBD products meet the highest quality standards and are tested for harmful chemicals and toxic substances, including pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. , Sept. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Ancient Nutrition has announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind product line designed to support one’s holistic wellness routine: USDA Certified Organic CBD Hemp oils, powders and caplets. This new line of Organic CBD products with clear and clean potency is the result of over four years of rigorous research and development. Ancient Nutrition is among the first to offer CBD that is USDA Certified Organic. This new line also introduces the first-ever CBD hemp products made with fermented hemp as well as half a dozen botanicals, some of which are clinically-studied. The line first launched at local natural health stores across the US on April 26 , which can be located here, and is now available for online purchase at shop.ancientnutrition.com.

Ancient Nutrition products are made from real food nutrients and are Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, grain-free and nut-free whenever possible. Ancient Nutrition’s Certified Organic CBD Hemp products are currently available at local retailers and for direct-to-consumer (DTC) purchase.

Ancient Nutrition’s Organic CBD Hemp line includes:

"Ancient Nutrition is a company focused on bringing ancient elements into the modern world in a convenient form, and since hemp has been around for thousands of years, used by many of our ancestors in a variety of ways, it’s only natural for us to help bring Organic CBD (derived from agricultural hemp) to everyday people in modern, functional and convenient formats," shares Dr. Josh Axe , Co-Founder of Ancient Nutrition and founder of DrAxe.com. He adds, "What makes our Organic CBD hemp products unique in the marketplace and ideal for consumers is our intentional and innovative combination of herbs and ingredients derived from Ayurvedic practices, such as holy basil, turmeric, black pepper and bacopa."

Ancient Nutrition’s Organic CBD Hemp line is entirely sourced from Certified Organic hemp plants grown in the U.S. on family farms in Tennessee and Colorado . Each product combines full-spectrum organic hemp plant and extract with a powerful combination of organic botanical herbs, oils and extracts. Ancient Nutrition’s full-spectrum CBD contains not only CBD but may also contain cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG) and terpenes.

Ancient Nutrition will showcase the collection at Natural Products Expo East on September 12 – 14, 2019 at booth #3845 and in the Hemp Pavilion at booth #5006.

"CBD is a potent inhibitor of CYP450 enzymes, which work to metabolize prescription drugs and eliminate toxins from the body. This means that using CBD while taking prescription medications may alter the body’s ability to metabolize or break down the drug."

Ultimately Dr. Axe recommends steering clear of mixing those prescriptions with CBD as they may have adverse interactions. "Any medication that’s metabolized by CYP450 enzymes shouldn’t be taken with CBD."

Something to keep in mind is that unlike pharmaceuticals, there hasn’t been enough clinical research on CBD to fully determine exact dosing guidelines.

Finding the perfect dose:

Most gummies and other edibles are typically made from an isolation of the CBD compound, a.k.a. pure CBD — unlike oils, which are made from the entire hemp plant. The effects of edibles won't set in for about 30 to 90 minutes. 

You already know this if you've ever smoked weed, but "the major difference between the two compounds is that CBD is a non-intoxicating compound that will not leave you feeling high. THC, on the other hand, does have intoxicating and euphoric effects, especially when it’s taken in higher doses," Dr. Axe explains.

In other words, CBD seems to be very important and effective at maintaining balance between interdependent elements in the body and acts as a mediator when things start to go haywire.

"One of the most popular ways to use CBD oil is by placing it under the tongue and swallowing. You simply place the oil under the tongue, let it sit for about 15 seconds and swallow. This can be done with tinctures too."
