Our MD CERTIFIED CBD Gummies contain a proprietary blend of pure CO2 Extracted CBD Isolate and pure CO2 Extracted Terpenes to deliver unparalleled CBD benefits. What are Terpenes and why do I want them? Read on!
For years researchers believed that CBD in its isolated from was more effective than Full Spectrum CBD; however, in 2005, this theory was debunked by a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem.
In the study, researchers found that test subjects administered with full spectrum CBD were provided with higher levels of relief, compared to subjects administered with CBD isolate. In addition, the results showed that full spectrum CBD provided enhanced effects with higher dosages, while the effects of CBD isolate did not increase with increased dosages.
The downside to Full Spectrum is CBD is that it contains 30% of the actives of CBD Isolate and its purity and potency can vary widely from batch to batch.
After evaluating the research it became clear to us that the optimum approach to delivering the maximum benefits with CBD was to combine a pure CBD Isolate with Pure Isolated Terpenes! Genius! By recombining them we have 100% control and can deliver the best of both worlds, pure, potent CBD isolate, with pure, potent terpenes in a consistent, optimized ratio. We call this LEAN Spectrum™ CBD and no one else has it!
This innovation makes LEAN Nutraceuticals Gummies the most effective over the counter (OTC) gummy that we are aware of. As with all of our MD Certified products the formulation, raw materials sourcing and manufacturing are all done with physician oversight.
The potential benefits of CBD are enormous and well-studied. Here are links to some of the more interesting of the over 1000 articles on the US National Library of Medicine’s website regarding CBD related research.
Cannabis Pharmacology: The Usual Suspects and a Few Promising Leads. – Discusses the synergistic relationship between terpenoids and cannabinoids referred to by researchers as the “entourage effect”.
Phytocannabinoids as novel therapeutic agents in CNS disorders. – Investigates the role non THC cannibinoids including cannabidiol (CBD) could play in helping to ameliorate Central Nervous System disorders such as epilepsy and neurodegenerative diseases.
Opportunities for cannabis in supportive care in cancer. – Discusses the benefits of THC and CBD in the supportive care of cancer, for example reducing the side effects of chemotherapy.
Quality Traits of “Cannabidiol Oils”: Cannabinoids Content, Terpene Fingerprint and Oxidation Stability of European Commercially Available Preparations. – Presents findings regarding the low quality and purity of many commercially available CBD oils. This is why it makes sense to purchase your CBD products from a trusted supplier like LEAN Nutraceuticals.
Potential Clinical Benefits of CBD-Rich Cannabis Extracts Over Purified CBD in Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy: Observational Data Meta-analysis. – Documents the benefits of using a CBD-rich formulation containing terpenes vs. a pure CBD isolate in the treatment of epilepsy.
Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects. – Discusses the “Entourage Effect” and the unique therapeutic benefits that accrue from combining CBD with terpenes. Particular focus is placed on phytocannabinoid-terpenoid interactions that could produce synergy with respect to treatment of pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, addiction, epilepsy, cancer, fungal and bacterial infections.
That is a great question. The reason quite simply is that Amazon PROHIBITS the sale of CBD! (Just search CBD on that page and you will see for yourself!
Yes, Amazon does allow the sale of "Hemp" Gummies and will even return search results for "CBD Gummies" but, despite what the shady sellers want you to believe, Hemp Gummies ARE NOT CBD GUMMIES!
What is CBD Isolate?
The term isolate is used to describe the purest form of a compound, which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its source material and isolating it from all other compounds. In the case of LEAN Nutraceutical’s CBD, our isolate is the purest form of CBD which is produced by selectively extracting the CBD using CO2 (instead of dangerous organic solvents) leaving behind all the other compounds found in the hemp plant such as terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids.
Full Spectrum CBD is CBD that has been extracted along with all the other naturally occurring constituents including terpenes, essential oils and other cannabinoids. It CAN contain traces of THC and is therefore NOT recommended as a constituent in gummies or other orally ingested CBD products as it can product positive drug tests.
Broad Spectrum CBD is Full Spectrum CBD that has had all but trace amounts of THC removed.
In the early days of CBD research it was believed that CBD in its isolated form was more effective than Full Spectrum CBD; however, in 2005, this theory was debunked by a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem.
In the study, researchers found that test subjects administered with full spectrum CBD were provided with higher levels of relief, compared to subjects administered with CBD isolate. In addition, the results showed that full spectrum CBD provided enhanced effects with higher dosages, while the effects of CBD maintained consistent with increased dosages.
LEAN Nutraceuticals CBD Gummies with LEAN Spectrum™ CBD contain both CBD Isolate and Terpenes to provide the enhanced “entourage effect” benefits of Broad Spectrum CBD with zero variability from batch to batch and gummy to gummy. Our unique approach packs our gummies with “entourage effect” benefits
Proponents and users of CBD believe that it can help a wide variety of health issues, ranging from everyday ailments to chronic medical conditions. Research already supports many of these beliefs and more research is being conducted every day.
Some of the issues that CBD shows promise for include:
It’s also said that CBD can promote sounder sleep, reduce inflammation and pain, fight oxidative stress, improve heart health, support weight loss, and protect against some forms of cancer.
While every situation and individual is different there is no research to suggest that consuming CBD in concert with alcohol should be problematic. In fact, according to one paper published in Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology, Vol 27(4), Aug 2019, 359-369 “Preliminary preclinical findings suggest that CBD may protect against some of the harmful effects of alcohol, including excessive consumption, relapse, and organ damage.”
However, according to the authors “Currently, there are too few human studies to draw any inferences about CBD and alcohol interactions.”
As with any nutritional supplement, if you're considering trying CBD, it's important to discuss potential side effects and adverse reactions with your physician. CBD can have a powerful impact on the human body and your physician or healthcare provider is in the best position to provide guidance.
Children and women who are breastfeeding or pregnant and any individual with an existing medical condition should NOT consume CBD or any supplement without first consulting with their physician or healthcare provider.
