Canine Health Foundation To Study CBD For Epilepsy

The Canine Health Foundation (CHF) has raised more than $2million to study epilepsy in dogs according to this article. Many people, and dogs, have been using CBD for epilepsy, and there are already many studies showing the benefits of it. This research is very important in animals as well, because epilepsy is the leading neurological disorder of dogs.

The Canine Health Foundation (CHF) has raised more than $2million to study epilepsy in dogs according to this article. Many people, and dogs, have been using CBD for epilepsy, and there are already many studies showing the benefits of it. This research is very important in animals as well, because epilepsy is the leading neurological disorder of dogs.

Because so many dogs are drug-resistant or acquire side effects that are not tolerable, it is even more important for these studies to be done. Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences will conduct this study led by board-certified veterinary neurologist Dr. Stephanie McGrath. The article states that, “up to 30% of dogs receiving standard anti-epileptic therapy remain uncontrolled for their seizures, and the side effects of the antiepileptic drugs are often unacceptable.”

This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover clinical trial study will help illustrate how effective CBD can be for these dogs that are not tolerating standard medication. “The timeliness and importance of research into the role of Cannabis in veterinary medicine cannot be emphasized enough,” stated Dr. McGrath. “With the changing public perception of Cannabis, it is time that we put science behind the stories and claims. We need to know if this drug is safe and if it works. If CBD is effective for treating epilepsy, it has the potential to save the lives of dogs around the world.”

New studies like this are occurring regularly for various issues, but it’s so early on, that very few of them are of this scale. Dr. Mary Smith, a CHF board member, and the Chairman of CHF’s Scientific Review Committee says, “This study has the potential to provide a much-needed new tool for veterinarians to treat dogs with epilepsy. A study of this scope is required to prove the efficacy of this plant-based therapy for dogs, and CHF is proud to take the lead on this research effort.”

During 2017, you can donate to this study by visiting the CHF Peilepsy Initiative donation page. All donations up to $250,000 will be matched by the American Kennel Club.

MindBodyGreen has recently published a few articles describing what CBD has been shown to do, as well as personal stories from people using CBD. This first article explains certain studies of how CBD has been shown to help people.

This study explains why CBD is commonly used for anxiety and insomnia. In short, CBD has been shown to act on serotonin receptors 5HT1A, regulating GABA and glutamate. GABA is involved with anxiety, and glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter. The way it does this is by acting on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which corresponds with the central nervous system and various neurotransmitters.

As with most supplements, the article above points out that every person’s body is different. Some may notice effects of CBD immediately, while it may take others a week, two weeks, or a month – and some may not notice any difference at all. It states, “Each person is different and will have a unique response to any new botanical supplement. It is important for people to be objective in observing the effects in order to find the right individual dose and whether CBD can be helpful.” It continues to say, “There are many factors to consider, such as where and how the plant was grown, how the product was processed and manufactured, and the route of administration used.”

Can you overdose on CBD? The science of this is discussed in depth in this article. “You cannot take enough CBD to kill yourself or damage organs. This is not practically possible. First, let’s discuss the LD-50 rating of cannabis, which is 1-20,000-40,000. This is the ratio between a therapeutic and lethal dose. Comparatively, the LD-50 for aspirin is 1:20. Two aspirin will take away a headache, 40 aspirin will kill 50 percent of the people who take that many.” The article does note that someone who takes “too much” may experience sedation, appetite loss, or diarrhea.

Interestingly, a second article by Mind Body Green references how That’s Natural’s specific products has benefitted one of their writers. What does she use it for? Achy feet, strain from old injuries, sunburns, sore muscles, and even period pain. As Andrea says, “I am a total convert – I can’t stop recommending the product to friends.”

Response to Media – That’s Natural Complies But Believes in Constitutional Rights for Plant Based Medicine

That’s Natural Corporate Statement:  We are excited about the opportunity to address the FDA’s Warning Letter by complying to their warning letter taking down the requested links to peer-reviewed journal articles on our site and social media. We have deleted our Facebook Page, our Twitter Page, and have taken down our Customer Testimonials as well as the other cited articles from the Warning Letter from the FDA #513302.

**************

From CEO Tisha Casida – This is the opinion of Tisha Casida and not that of That’s Natural Marketing & Consulting.

I am also excited about the opportunity to educate and empower consumer’s with pertinent information regarding cannabinoids that can benefit their health and wellness.

The FDA only approves ‘drugs’.  To be able to create and patent a drug – the molecule must be synthesized (at this point in time, thank God, it is impossible for companies to patent naturally occurring plants and naturally occurring compounds).   The CBD molecule that any large pharmaceutical company would have patented and approved by the FDA is going to be synthesized (not naturally derived) – that is the only way they can stop other companies from being able to ‘create’ something similar.   When companies patent a synthesized version of a molecule like CBD – they make it impossible for small producers like That’s Natural to be able to create anything that says “CBD” on it – even though our CBD and other cannabinoids are naturally derived and not a synthesized version of the CBD molecule.  This will also stop individuals from being able to source naturally plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD – this is a dangerous proposition for free people.

Cannabinoids like CBD are found in many plants beyond cannabis/hemp – CBD (and other cannabinoids) can also be found in: echinacea, electric daisy, liverwort, black pepper among others.

The Department of Health and Human Services has a patent (Patent #6,630,507) on cannabinoids, creating some hypocrisy among government agencies.

The patent’s abstract (via Google https://www.google.com/patents/US6630507) –   “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.”

Over the past 40 years, there have been over 20,000 journal articles on cannabinoids and their potential positive effects for disease – you can find many of these on the government website – the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These are peer-reviewed journal articles from researchers with the knowledge of what cannabinoids can do for people’s Endocannabinoid System – the applications are immense.  As a company, we think it is our first amendment right to publish links to government-supported media (NIH) where peer-reviewed journal articles exist.  It is taxpayer money that pays for many of these studies and for the ability to see these studies on this website.  In these journal articles, you will find claims made by researchers about the applications of cannabinoids, for example:

“Antitumor activity of plant cannabinoids with emphasis on the effect of cannabidiol on human breast carcinoma.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16728591

“Cannabinoids Modulate Neuronal Activity and Cancer by CB1 and CB2 Receptor-Independent Mechanisms.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29066974

“Anticancer effects of phytocannabinoids used with chemotherapy in leukaemia cells can be improved by altering the sequence of their administration.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28560402

“Cannabis and Cannabinoids for Chronic Pain.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28983880

Here we have both a government agency (DHHS) with a patent on cannabinoids for their use as neuroprotectants and a government agency (NIH) with peer-reviewed studies that talk about the applications of cannabinoids – it is hypocritical for the FDA to only support a synthesized version of cannabinoids (from pharmaceutical companies) but not ‘allow’ for people to seek out alternative, natural, and non-synthesized versions of cannabinoids that may benefit them as well.

That’s Natural grows only hemp products – our farmers are regulated by the Colorado Department of Agriculture per the 2014 Federal Farm Bill.  The DEA has been taken to court twice by the Hemp Industry Association (HIA) over the naturally occurring cannabinoids that exist in hemp – the Hemp Industry Association has won both times.

Hemp Industry Association v. Drug Enforcement Administration, 333 F.3d 1082 (9th Cir. 2003)

Hemp Industry Association v. Drug Enforcement Administration, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004)

That’s Natural sources its CBD-rich hemp oil products from local producers – supporting farming and local/biodynamic agriculture.  We have thousands of customers across the country who have experienced an improvement in their quality of life.  We ask that people stand up for their natural and constitutional rights to consume plant-based medicine.

That’s Natural believes it is individual’s natural and constitutional right to consume non-psychoactive cannabinoids (like CBD) from the hemp plant, or any plant for that matter.  Anything that comes naturally from a plant should never be able to be taken away from the people.  People have a right to grow and consume plant-based medicines without the approval of any government agency.  If the plant (echinacea, electric daisy, liverwort, black pepper, hemp) is non-psychoactive with no known negative side effects – regulatory agencies in the federal level of government should have a hands off approach.  There are bigger problems (opioid epidemic – thank you FDA-approved prescription drugs) for them to focus on.

That’s Natural will comply with the FDA’s request to remove certain verbiage, including the cited peer-reviewed journal articles that we have found on the NIH site, from the website and social media.  We ask for common sense when it comes to medicine.  All free people have a right to experience health and wellness from naturally derived cannabinoids.  We should not HAVE to only take FDA-approved synthesized drugs.  We should be able to experience natural plant-based medicine in its truest form – food IS medicine.  That’s Natural!

An Overview of What You Need to Know About CBD

There are a range of health problems and diseases that are a part of this research showing that cannabinoids - including the non-psychotropic cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol) can: fight cancer cells and tumors, improve brain function, help fight various neurological diseases, aid in the suppression of seizures, protect the body from inflammation, provide anxiety relief, improve sleep, and suppress overall pain in the body.

Before we jump into how CBD can help people, we must first understand what it is. CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol – a compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is completely non-psychoactive, but is responsible for many of the medical properties within cannabis.  As more and more people become aware (even the Today Show had a recent article on CBD for health) of the potential healing properties of cannabinoids, it is important to learn more about the people and process behind the product that you try.

What does it help with? There are studies showing that it may help with a variety of issues including: anxiety, schizophrenia, psychosis, opiate addictions, epilepsy, inflammation, and acne. For actual studies, you can view this page.

How should you take CBD? That’s completely up to you! However, many people use “tinctures”, or oils, under their tongue, while others may use topical products, and some companies have edible products like chocolate.

Is CBD safe? Although more studies are needed, there are not currently any known side effects that cause serious issues. Some people, if they “take too much” may become very sleepy/lethargic, may have a change in bowel movements, or may have some stomach pain, however in most circumstances, this is only for people taking exuberant amounts of CBD at a time.

How much CBD should I take? Again, that is up to every person to decide for themselves until further testing can be done. Most customers here at That’s Natural are taking around 10mg’s a day, however some take significantly more or less than that depending on what they are using it for.

Can my pets consume CBD? Absolutely. More and more people are giving CBD to their pets for issues ranging from anxiety to pain. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, owners don’t have to worry about their pets getting “high” or “stoned”. There are actually studies showing that CBD has a high protective index, meaning you can use a lot of it without causing any toxicity issues.

Israel Researching CBD As An Effective Asthma Treatment

According to this article, by the Jewish News Service, Israel now has funding to start researching CBD as a viable treatment for asthma. An estimated 300 million people worldwide suffer from asthma, and approximately 250,000 deaths each year are due to the disease. - That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

According to this article, by the Jewish News Service, Israel now has funding to start researching CBD as a viable treatment for asthma. An estimated 300 million people worldwide suffer from asthma, and approximately 250,000 deaths each year are due to the disease. Over the next eight years, it is expected that worldwide asthma cases may increase by as much as 100 million.

“The research project focuses on researching the effects of the non-psychoactive cannabis compound CBD and identifying its potential inhibitory impact on allergic airway inflammation that causes asthma attacks. According to CIITECH’s leadership, the study is expected to yield results within six months.” Because of the anti-inflammatory properties within CBD, it has long been a topic of discussion for asthma. Asthma is generally caused by inflammation of the airway.

Levi Schaffer, an expert in asthma research, says, “Most of the symptoms of allergic disease patients are controlled by either symptomatic drugs or corticosteroids. However, some patients are steroid-resistant and allergic diseases such as severe asthma have been labeled as unmet clinical needs by the WHO (World Health Organization), we believe our research will provide a novel and effective solution to treating this condition.”

Other studies, like this one from 2012, suggests that, “The endocannabinoid system is an important modulator of neuroinflammation and a possible drug target. In selected conditions, the activation of CB1 receptors in cerebral blood vessels can have beneficial antiischemic effects.” It also states that “The activation of CB2 receptors on mast cells has direct anti-inflammatory effects, causing decreased release of pro-inflammatory mediators by these cells. The activation of CB1 receptors on bronchial nerve endings has bronchodilator effects acting on the airway smooth muscle and may be beneficial in airway hyperreactivity and asthma.”

Although more evidence, research, and results are needed to be conclusive, the outlook for CBD as an anti-asthmatic medication seems encouraging.

The Main Cannabinoids in Our That’s Natural Hemp

The That’s Natural cannabinoids include: CBD (Cannabidiol), CBDa (Cannabidiolic Acid), CBC (Cannabichromene), CBG (Cannabigerol), and CBN (Cannabinol) - see more from Thats Natural at www.cbdoil.life and find us an our Life Force Market outside of Basalt in the Aspen Valley next to the Willets Gas Station #ThatsNatural #lifeforce #cbd #cbdoil

Hemp (a non-psychoactive strain of cannabis) can have many different cannabinoids and terpenes in it that can be beneficial to our health. If products contain these different elements, they are known to be full spectrum products. These full spectrum products help provide an entourage effect. The entourage effect occurs because of the cannabinoids and terpenes fueling our an endocannabinoid system, which every mammal has. So, what are the major cannabinoids in out That’s Natural hemp?

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most studied cannabinoid within hemp, and hundreds of stories have emerged about it helping with dozens of different conditions. CBD is filled with anti-inflammatory properties, and that is probably what it is most widely known for. However, there have been thousands of studies showing that it can help with diabetes, anxiety, acne, addiction, crohn’s disease, and epilepsy as well.

CBDA

Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) is really known to help two major conditions: inflammation and tumors. This study by Fundamental Toxicological Sciences discusses how CBDA slowed down the migration of human breast cancer cells. However, it also down-regulated the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9, the transforming growth factor inducible gene H3, and the parathyroid hormone-related protein significantly. These molecules were involved with the bone metastasis of breast cancer cells. Because CBDA becomes CBD when heated because of a process known as decarboxylation.

CBN

Cannabinol (CBN) is yet another cannabinoid that many people have seen benefits from. Its primary use is for insomnia. CBN has become known as the primary sedative in cannabis. This study by the National Institutes of Health goes into more detail about why and how CBN can sometimes be used to help people sleep.

CBG

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid often credited with being used for bacterial infections. According to this study, CBG showed potent activity against a variety of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Activity was “remarkably tolerant to the nature of the prenyl moiety, to its relative position compared to the n-pentyl moiety (abnormal cannabinoids), and to carboxylation of the resorcinyl moiety (pre-cannabinoids).

CBC

Cannabichromene (CBC) is being for several issues including: anxiety, stress, inflammation, viruses and tumors. However, two of the most studied areas of CBC are pain and brain growth. This study by the National Institutes of Health states that, “CBD and CBC stimulated descending pathways of antinociception and caused analgesia by interacting with several target proteins involved in nociceptive control. These compounds might represent useful therapeutic agents with multiple mechanisms of action.” Meanwhile, this study suggests that CBC can actually encourage encourage neurogenesis. Neurogenesis is the process known to continuously create cells that are responsible for memory and learning.

Bustle Writes About The Benefits of Hemp

Hooper Hemp Farm - That's Natural 2016 Harvest - 2 Large Hemp Plants with San Juan Mountains

The Bustle, an American magazine founded in 2013, wrote a recent article discussing what the health benefits of hemp are.

From Bustle:

“Hemp is becoming more and more known for its health and wellness properties, moving away from its once hippie-ish reputation to mainstream markets like Whole Foods. While not a cure-all, hemp-based products are known to offer relief for myriad medical conditions.”….” Reasons hemp is all the rage include its reported ability to reduce anxiety, sooth aches, manage chronic pain, relieve PMS symptoms, moisturize skin, and more — all without the worry of exposing yourself to toxic chemicals.”

Bustle interviewed Dr. Cass Ingram who said:

“In combating anxiety and depression cannabinoids play a significant role. These substances act as signaling agents, causing improved communication between neurons,” Dr. Cass Ingram, author of more than 20 books on natural healing, explains in an email to Bustle. “The anti-anxiety and antidepressant action of cannabinoids are related to enhanced neurotransmission as a result of their direct actions on neurotransmitter metabolism, including the induction of an increase in the synthesis of serotonin.”

Bustle then discussed the potential benefit of pain relief and cannabinoids. Bustle reports Dr. Ingram explaining that:

“Through their direct action on immune cells cannabinoids, especially the cannabis terpenes, help reduce and/or modulate the inflammatory response. This is through influencing and modifying the production of pro-inflammation mediators. Essentially, cannabinoids put into balance immune function, causing a reduction in immune-mediated pain and inflammation.”

The Department of Health and Human Services has a patent on cannabinoids – the Denver Post did an article on this.  You can search the National Institutes of Health or Google Scholar to find research for cannabinoids like CBD.

Did you know that cannabinoids like CBD can be found all throughout the plant kingdom?

At That’s Natural, we believe in your natural and constitutional right to consume naturally-derived cannabinoids and terpenes that exist in plants even beyond cannabis or hemp!  That’s Food and Medicine FREEDOM!

That’s Natural Team meets Dr. Raphael Mechoulam – The ‘Father of Cannabis Research’ at ICR Conference

That’s Natural Team and CEO Tisha Casida meet Dr. Raphael Mechoulam - The ‘Father of Cannabis Research’ at ICR (Institute for Cannabis Research) Conference

Pictured Above: Dr. Raphael Mecholam (the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’) and That’s Natural CEO Tisha Casida

I had the opportunity to present at the Institute of Cannabis Research (ICR) Conference at Colorado State University.  The ‘Father of Cannabis’ – the most well known researcher for compounds of cannabis, including CBD (Cannabidiol) – Professor Raphael Mechoulam was the keynote speaker.  Researchers from around the world presented their research and industry experts made contacts to further the understanding and applications of this incredible plant.

My presentation: ’That’s Natural ‘Legal Cannabis’ discussed the moral, ethical, and constitutional ‘legality’ of cannabis use, including:

1. Constitutional ‘legality’ of individuals’ freedom to consume plants for foods and medicine – American’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

2. 10th Amendment protections for States and individuals when the federal government oversteps its bounds and does not protect individuals’ rights.

3. Representatives ‘Oath of Office’ – meant to protect individuals’ natural and constitutional rights – like the right to consume plants for medicines.

4. Practitioners and doctors ‘Hippocratic Oath’ – meant to protect patients and ensure that healers protect health over motives for personal profit.

5. American’s active participation in creating laws, changing laws, nullifying laws (using the 10th Amendment), and breaking laws is what forms moral and ethical guidelines.

6. Stopping human suffering and helping people to heal is a moral and ethical obligation of all individual citizens but especially those that take an Oath of Office to defend the Constitution and the Hippocratic Oath to protect patients.

The Constitution – even from before its writing and ratification – has been a document that has divided government power to protect and preserve the individual rights of the people.  Individual rights – the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – as long as you are not infringing on other peoples’ life or property – are unique among Americans.  American citizens enjoy protections in the Constitution – which is the oldest living paper Constitution in the entire world.

America’s form of government is called a ‘constitutional republic’ although many people refer to it as a ‘democracy’.  A unique feature of the government is the separation of powers in government – in the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches of government.  Having these three different parts of government – the part that creates laws (Legislative Branch); the part that enacts and enforces laws (Executive Branch); and the part that interest laws (Judicial Branch) – is what is supposed to protect individual’s natural rights.

There is also a difference between ‘legal rights’ and ‘natural rights’.  “Legal” rights are those that are ‘given’ to you by the government.  “Natural” rights are those that are given to you by your Creator.  I believe that it is a natural (moral and ethical) right to consume plant-based medicines.  Just because something is ‘legal’ – in no way does that make it moral or ethical.  I believe it is moral and ethical to stop human suffering.  Cannabis can help stop human suffering.

At That’s Natural, we refer to this as “Food and Medicine Freedom” – your right to consume foods and medicines that can help heal you or prevent you from getting disease.  Growing your own foods and medicines, and being able to purchase and consume foods and medicines that you choose – we believe – is a natural and ‘God-given’ right.

The Constitution itself says nothing about cannabis – as a matter of fact – that Constitution says nothing about Agriculture, Healthcare, Energy, Social Policy, etc.  Agencies that have been created through laws passed in Congress may be funded by taxpayers – but their functions and actions may not necessarily be Constitutional.  The Constitution is supposed to protect individuals’ life and property.  “Laws” that stop people from being able to access plant-based medicines goes against protecting peoples’ life.  People have a right to be healthy and seek wellness – many government agencies end up interfering in their quest for foods and medicines that can heal them.

Because we have these checks and balances in government at the federal level – it affords Americans the opportunity to change laws that have been created that may have negative consequences for their individual rights.  And, new laws can be created to replace old laws that cannot be changes.  And, worst case – bad laws can be broken using States’ rights.

The 10th Amendment of the Constitution reads:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

When the federal government creates laws that fail to uphold the meaning and intent of the Constitution – State governments can protect their citizens.  Amendment 64 in Colorado effectively did this with the ‘legalization’ of cannabis.  Although this can create a lot of confusion and a ‘gray area’ – ultimately this is protecting individuals’ right to the pursuit of health.  Colorado’s experiment in ‘nullifying’ or ‘ignoring’ federal law is what is giving citizens’ access to new and innovate treatments with cannabis.  Although imperfect, this regulatory framework is proving to be an effective model and is allowing individuals to exercise their Constitutional freedoms.

Our representatives in the Congress and Senate take an ‘Oath of Office’ which reads:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Our representatives are supposed to put our natural and constitutional rights above their personal motives for profit.  Our representatives are charged with protecting us as individuals.

In addition to ‘leaders’ who write laws taking an oath – practitioners and doctors who are charged to help people with their health take the ‘Hippocratic Oath’.  By taking this oath they are swearing themselves to seek help for their patients above and personal motive for profit or gain.  Practitioners and doctors take this oath – and patients trust them to make decisions that are based on compassion – not on profit.

It is a crime that many of the people who create laws and people who write prescriptions are stopping the research and stopping the freedom for people to try and use natural non-psychotropic medicines that can give their body and mind PEACE.  It is against their sworn Oath of Office to protect and defend the Constitution and it is against the Hippocratic Oath taken to protect patients.  It is the citizens’ job to stand up to these unlawful and unethical practices and protect their fellow human beings.  We must hold not only our representatives accountable, but we must also hold doctors and practitioners accountable.  Individuals have a right to use natural, non-psychotropic (does not get you “high”) plants – whether that be hemp, elderberry, or echinacea.

I hope you will join me in protecting and promoting our natural and constitutional right to Food and Medicine Freedom!  – Tisha T. Casida

That’s Natural Cannabinoid & Ailment Guide

That's Natural CBD Oil - Cannabinoid Ailment Guide

At That’s Natural, we know how important it is to make an educated decision about what types of foods and medicines that you ingest.  Here is a ‘Cannabinoid and Ailment Guide’ to show you some of the various cannabinoids and what preliminary research had shown that these cannabinoids (or phytocannabinoids) are good for.

Our That’s Natural premium CBD-rich hemp oil is a full-spectrum and whole-plant product – meaning that there are minute amounts of other cannabinoids (like some of these listed on this chart) as well as terpenes – which we feel are an essential part of a premium and effective product.

You can see what are customers are saying with testimonials – and always know exactly where your product is coming from – Pure, Potent, Trusted – That’s Natural!

Hemp Isn’t Pot – It’s Just Not

Hemp Isn't Pot 1

That’s Natural was founded in 2005 as a marketing company with the desire to educate and inform consumers about their Food and Medicine Freedom.  As marketers and promoters, we know how it is possible for marketing and media to be used for nefarious means.  We aim to provide an alternative to that.

Along with the ‘Drug War’ that actually created more problems and more criminals for society, came the negative connotation of words associated with cannabis.  Marijuana (or ‘Marihuana’) was a name used to make the cannabis plant seem negative – another word that can get connected to cannabis is ‘Pot’ – automatically making many people thing of a psychedelic rainbow of colors encased in a cloud of smoke.

But let’s be honest – cannabis is a plant, and cannabis as a plant (and medicine) has been around for thousands of years in the world and hundreds of years in the United States.  Hemp is a word used to refer to the cannabis plant – especially when that plant is grown for its fiber or oil – not its THC, the cannabinoid that gets you “high”.  Hemp isn’t pot, or what is referred to as ‘pot’.  Hemp isn’t marijuana.

Hemp strains grown that are genetically superior, with higher amounts of CBD (versus THC) – are not ‘marijuana’ and are not ‘pot’.  You can see our hemp fields in Colorado, that are regulated by the Colorado Department of Agriculture – no guns, no DEA agents, no violence.  Just beautiful hemp plants growing – this is not pot – or what media may refer to as ‘pot’.

As more people decide for themselves to use their Food and Medicine Freedom, and consume cannabis as a product to enhance their health and well-being – we will see more words used to describe and explain this plant.  The important thing to remember is, what the plant really is.  And at That’s Natural, our plants are always hemp – high ratio CBD hemp plants (60:1 ratio), that are making an unbelievable difference in so many peoples’ lives.
