Introducing Lavendiol

ESPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR THE COVID-19 ERA

“Just take a chill pill,”our friends advise.  But it’s easier said than done.  Anyway, what kind of a pill can tame anxiety during times of great uncertainty like now?

 

Maui Grown Therapies’ chief science officer Andrew Weil, MD,

 

Maui Grown Therapies’ chief science officer Andrew Weil, MD, recommends a holistic approach to ease anxious feelings. Along with outdoor exercise, better nutritition, breathing exercises, and laughter, he also suggests adding botanical remedies to your integrative health regime.

Lavendiol is Maui Grown Therapies’ newest cannabinoid capsule,  formulated in response to patient requests for a calming product during the COVID-19 era. Each capsule contains 11 mg of full-spectrum CBD extract and a microdose of THC (1 mg.),  blended with a standardized botanical extract of organic lavender. This proprietary blend is mixed with virgin organic coconut oil and enclosed in enteric-coated capsules using precision technology to ensure uniform dosing.

Unlike CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD oil retains the plant’s bioactive cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and omega fatty acids. We extract our CBD using subcritical and supercritical CO2, to guarantee purity, free of solvent residues or additives. Our organic lavender undergoes the same process to extract active compounds including linalool, a terpene also found in cannabis, proven to improve mood and alleviate anxiety. 

Studies have shown that CBD is an effective treatment for a range of general anxiety disorders. German and American researchers also concluded that lavender extract delivered the same, or better, effects as anti-anxiety prescription medications and placebos.  The German study found lavender extract oil to be as effective in alleviating anxiety as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) like Paxil, and benzodiazepenes (Xanax, Valium) without the nasty side effects, including dependency and overdose risk.

To maximize its anti-anxiety benefits, we recommend taking one Lavendiol capsule with food during AM hours.  Studies show the effects of lavender oil are cumulative, so expect the full calmative experience after 14 days of daily use. For most users, the CBD will moderate effects of the minimal THC content. Most will experience a noticeable reduction in stress and anxiety, reduced  inflammation and more restful sleep.

For a limited time, a 20-day supply of Lavendiol will be offered to registered MGT patients at a special introductory price. ORDER LAVENDIOL NOW

LAVENDIOL Q&A

What is Lavendiol?

Lavendiol is our new capsule product formulated with full spectrum CBD extract blended with a standardized botanical extract of organic lavender and a microdose of THC.

What is a microdose?

Each Lavendiol capsule contains 1 mg. of THC.  Microdosed THC can alleviate anxiety, improve mood, boost focus and enhance clarity. A 1 mg. dose of THC rarely produces a perceptible ‘high’ when combined with a full-spectrum CBD extract.

Why did you make Lavendiol?

Many of our patients are reporting high levels of stress and anxiety in connection with the ongoing pandemic.  Patient requests for a calming product led to review of the medical literature and our formulation of Lavendiol.

What does the lavender extract do?

Clinical trials compared the effects of a standardized oral lavender oil extract with anti-anxiety prescription medications and placebos. Researchers concluded that the lavender extract provided the same, or better, outcomes as pharmaceuticals without the negative side effects of drug dependency and overdose risk.

What is full spectrum CBD?

Unlike CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD oil provides patients with bioactive cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and omega fatty acids. Studies have concluded that CBD is an effective treatment for a range of anxiety disorders.

How is full spectrum CBD made?

To preserve therapeutically valuable compounds, our full spectrum CBD oil is extracted using subcritical and supercritical CO2 technology.  Our organic lavender undergoes the same process to extract the active compounds including linalool, a terpene also found in cannabis, known to improve mood and relieve anxiety. All of our plant extracts are pure and contain no additives or solvent residue. These botanical extracts are blended with virgin organic coconut oil and inserted into enteric-coated capsules using precision technology to ensure uniform dosing.

What does enteric-coated mean?

Enteric coating enables capsule contents to bypass destructive stomach acids to be asborbed in the small intestine for better bioavailability and longer lasting relief.

How often do I take it?

We recommend taking one capsule a day, swallowed with food, during AM hours to maximize the anti-anxiety benefits. Studies found the effects of lavender oil are cumulative, so expect the full calmative experience after 14 days of regular use.

How do I know if it’s working? Will I feel high? 

Like all cannabis products, individuals will experience different effects, but for most people, CBD will tone down the effects of the minimal THC in the capsules. Most users can expect to feel a reduction in stress and anxiety throughout the day. Lavendiol may also promote more restful sleep, reduce inflammation and enhance mental clarity.

Are there any side effects?

A few people may experience a flower-scented burp or two, but that’s about it. Note that Lavendiol is not recommended for anyone with an allergy to lavender or linalool.

How much will it cost?

Similar to our existing capsule line, Lavendiol will be priced at $49 for a 20-day supply

When can I buy Lavendiol?

Lavendiol will be available to Maui Grown Therapies patients on Wednesday, August 12, 2020. Our patients will receive a special introductory $20 discount through the end of the month.
