CBD has attracted a lot of attention in recent years, but one under-explored area of this subject is the unique synergy that can come about through the use of this product: how it interacts with other herbs, and amplifies their healing effects. In our Winter 2020/21 issue, we spoke to Cara Long of Alta CBD to find out more.
Amplify your body’s healing potential
Relieve, Repair, Restore
by Alison McEvoy
I spoke with Cara Long of Alta CBD recently. Cara began her CBD journey when she was left in chronic pain from an accident. She suffered whiplash and tendinitis for some time before finding her relief in CBD.
“I used a topical cream and almost overnight, I could see the difference. I was also able to get a deeper night’s sleep immediately. It really helped me, but it was hard to find. I started making my own topical cream, combining CBD with other herbs. I found that the CBD actually amplifies the healing qualities of the herbs.”
The range supplies high-quality salves such as ‘Muscle Mend’, a fantastic blend of CBD with herbal terpenes such as arnica, wintergreen, frankincense and peppermint, specifically formulated to ease muscular aches and pains. They also boast a wonderfully restorative range of CBD tinctures which support the body’s ability to FOCUS, REPAIR and REST, to name but a few.
What makes Alta CBD unique is the healing, herbal synergy at work within the products. The CBD highlights the various actions of the plants so that they become even more effective and powerful. This, in conjunction with their use of broad spectrum CBD, which not only has CBD but also the other beneficial cannabinoids, creates an entourage effect.
CBD, a.k.a. cannabidiol, has been studied and shown to be: anti-inflammatory, analgesic (relieves pain), anti-spasmodic (may relieve seizures and migraines), anti-anxiety and neuroprotective. So, if you are looking for a way to naturally support your body through pain relief, recovery from injury or relief from anxiety, Alta CBD offers a truly fantastic range of products.
