Chicago, IL: Hemp for Fitness LLC., a leader in the growing CBD-rich hemp products market, is formally announcing the release of our own custom formulation of CBD vape oil with saffron. Together these two natural extracts combine powerful phyto-benefits that have shown in a flotilla of studies to be effective at alleviating the symptoms of both mild to moderate anxiety and depression, as well as helping to promote metabolic homeostasis.
Each 1.5ml CBD vape oil cartridge contains 90mg of potent whole plant hemp-derived CBD extract, less than 0.03% THC to adhere to strict US and EU standards, and a hearty dose of saffron for a synergy of health promoting cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant-based therapeutic compounds.
We believe that there’s no other qualified plant extract but saffron to match the nutritional might of hemp-derived concentrates. It’s also an ancient holistic alternative to conventional depression and anxiety medication that in both anecdotal and controlled human studies has led to a decrease in pharmaceutical usage.
In fact, in his highly cited article, A Safer Alternative for Managing Depression Michael Downey shows that after a series of efficacy tests,
“Saffron is a potent alternative to commonly prescribed antidepressants for treating depression—without the adverse effects.”
Neat! So far wherever cannabis is consumed we’re seeing 25% drops in pill culture as well. And,
“Evidence demonstrates that treatment with active saffron constituents known as crocins induces anxiolytic-like (anxiety-reducing) benefits without adverse reactions. Also, the saffron compound safranal demonstrates anxiolytic benefits and increased total sleep time—but without any negative impact on motor coordination.”
While researching the value of saffron it completely shocked us how similar these two plants are. As our medical understanding of the human endocannabinoid system grows, we believe saffron will become of more and more interest.
Saffron was not added to our CBD vape oil to increase or enhance taste in any way. While it definitely adds to the experience and smoothness of the vape, it’s not about that at all. Firstly, Marian (Owner & Founder of Hemp for Fitness) is from a traditional and close-knit Persian family where the appreciation and knowledge of saffron runs deep.
In fact, her father is a lifelong holistic medicine practitioner. Originally Marjan began adding saffron to the CBD cape oil to appease her father who takes it to help with his health issues. While there are countless CBD vape oil flavors popping up left and right, ours is the only one right now that adds 100% organic saffron to increase the overall effectiveness of the product.
Truth is, hemp CBD extract and fresh saffron are an amazing duo. Try one of our CBD vape oil cartridges with saffron today and see if you don’t fall in love.
