Plant-Based Defense

Green and spiky agave plant

When we bought our first home my wife was 7 months pregnant, the home needed a full renovation and you couldn’t step into the backyard because the landscaping was so overgrown. When we started digging through it all we discovered agave plants.  These plants are as beautiful as they are dangerous. Why?  Because at the end of each leaf is a sharp pointy spike that really hurts when you back into them ?

Reflecting on my painful encounters…got me thinking about how plants defend themselves. For example, Nettles keep animals away by releasing little hairs that cause pain and discomfort.  Some plants release chemicals that attract birds to eat the insects that are eating them.  The Hemp plant contains terpenes to help defend itself.  Terpenes have a distinct aroma that you will recognize if you’ve ever smelled marijuana, (we said smelled and not smoked so it’s OK to admit it ?).  These terpenes go far beyond keeping bugs away, they form a part of what’s called the entourage effect.  The entourage effect is when all the compounds of the plant come together in synergy and create Full Spectrum Hemp Oil.  

This allows us to harness the plants natural defenses to help relieve:

  • Anxiety
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Strengthens the immune system

The following was taken from The Guardian and looks at how rare cannabinoids like CBG are proving more effective at killing MRSA:

 “Scientists screened five cannabis compounds for their antibiotic properties and found that one, cannabigerol (CBG), was particularly potent at killing methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), one of the most common hospital superbugs.”

We previously posted how to help improve the immune system because we know people are concerned about the FLU and Corona Virus.  We recognize that some of the research is preliminary…but wanted you to have the information to make an informed decision for yourself.  

We passionately believe that the rare cannabinoids, (<1% of the plant) like CBG and CBC are the next evolution and that’s why we developed TRIPLICITY.  

We will get through these times together and as we all know by now, frequent hand washing is a must, like mom always told us.  

We believe more can be done and that means going on the offense with a plant-based defense.  Read the articles we’ve hyperlinked above and take the first step by ordering TRIPLICITY.  

Everything we sell ships free, is backed by our return policy, and offers up to 25% off for veterans, first responders and Senior Citizens.
