Jenny Argie was sick of feeling sick. Surviving breast cancer and three active kids left her feeling worn out, without the energy she needed to not just thrive but survive. She started eating a plant-based diet and using healthy CBD in the form of full-spectrum hemp oil. While it was the start of her road to recovering her health, Jenny took it to the next step, creating Jenny’s Baked at Home.
Baked at Home Is About Food as Medicine
She found the market saturated with low-quality CBD. Every company was selling artificially flavored cannabidiol drinks or healthy CBD edibles filled with processed junk, and couldn’t find quality products to incorporate into her cooking. She took the ideas behind her plant-based diet to help inform the kind of hemp she was looking for. With that blueprint in mind, she formed a partnership with organic hemp farmers and extractors to create full-spectrum, organic hemp oil.
While you’ll find the more traditional tinctures, balms, and gummies on her website, you’ll also find real food, items like CBD-infused olive oil, coconut oil, and brownie mix. So what exactly are these healthy treats supposed to do for you?
Benefits of CBD
healthy CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids in hemp. Unlike its better-known sibling, THC, CBD does not have psychoactive properties that cause the “high” people associate with cannabis. cannabidiol, however, does have some of the same calming properties and is currently undergoing extensive scientific testing. Here’s what is known so far.
All cannabinoids interact with the human endocannabinoid system (or the ECS of any other mammal). The ECS is still being studied but it’s clear that it has a role in sleep, mood, memory, and pain processing. Autoimmune diseases are on the rise in the U.S. and while there are many ways they affect the human body, all are marked by inflammation. CBD has been shown to fight inflammation, with one study noting that cannabinoids “constitute a potent treatment modality against inflammatory disorders.”
Besides its anti-inflammatory properties, initial studies and anecdotal evidence suggest healthy CBD is helpful in treating anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness, as well as generally elevating mood. It’s even being studied as a potential treatment for seizure disorders that don’t respond to available medications. All of this without recognized side effects.
Benefits of Organic CBD
All of the benefits of CBD could potentially be undone if you aren’t making sure that the cannabidiol you use is organic. The USDA recognizes the “organic” designation to mean that it is non-GMO and free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Pesticides have been linked to everything from Alzheimer’s and ADHD to cancer and birth defects. You can understand why Jenny found it important to find organic suppliers. These farmers make sure you’re healthy, the plant is healthy and the environment is too.
Jenny says, “After using full-spectrum hemp oil with highly potent cannabidiol, I was surprised. I felt rejuvenated.” If you want to see the results of healthy CBD for yourself, talk to your physician. Like any other supplement, it can potentially interact with your current medications.
