Did you know Island Healing now offers Hemp Oil Complex?
By now you have likely heard of CBD oil since it is the most talked about nutritional supplement at the moment.. and for good reason! CBD is one of the important cannabinoids present in Hemp Oil. Notice that it is ONE of the cannabinoids... meaning if you have a full spectrum Hemp Oil, you get all of the active ingredients and compounds that work together to naturally affect neglected and therapeutic pathways.
Will CBD get you high, is it Marijuana? No. Hemp Oil and most CBD comes from hemp plants, not marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are close relatives, but not the same. By definition, hemp contains no more than .3% THC - the psychoactive compound (substance that gets you high) that is found in higher concentration in marijuana. By contrast, hemp naturally has higher levels of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound.
What can Hemp Oil do? In June 2018, the country's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the prescriptive use of Epidiolex, a purified/modified form of CBD oil, for treating two types of epilepsy. Authors of a study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some mice and rats. The researchers suggested that the non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana, such as CBD, could provide a new treatment for chronic pain.
Other results people are reporting are a sense of calm and focus, relief from everyday stresses, help in recovery from exercise-induced inflammation and support for healthy sleep cycles! Maybe you can benefit as well!

Hemp Oil Complex™ is a unique formulation of ingredients, combined to provide a 3-in-1 benefit for the whole body – supporting the endocannabinoid system, inflammation response resolution pathways, and endogenous anti-oxidant pathways. Non-genetically engineered hemp (gluten-free) and a combination of natural omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA Calamari oil certified sustainable from the independent nonprofit group Friend of the Sea®
Hemp Oil Complex delivers essential fatty acids needed for the formation of specialized lipid mediators for a healthy immune response. Hemp oil and omega-3 oil may support the resolution phase of the inflammatory process by providing PUFAs which are known to be precursors to endocannabinoids. Additionally, Brassica (TrueBroc®) is an important phytonutrient providing antioxidant support by activating the Nrf2/ARE pathways.
Why support the endocannabinoid system?
Hemp Oil Complex™ contains natural, plant-based compounds called Phytocannabinoids that support the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Evidence shows that the ECS regulates various cellular, intestinal, immune response and stress response functions to support physiological balance in the body. This ranges from simple functions, like eating, sleeping and relaxing, to complex functions, such as neuroplasticity, metabolism and inflammatory processes. A well-balanced ECS encourages favorable conditions in body systems, impacting the body’s ability to manage metabolic stress and support overall health and well-being.
Supporting Systemic Balance Through Nutrition Physiological manifestations like stress, and poor diet may negatively impact other systems in the body via specific cellular processes. Nutrition plays an important role in preserving various systemic and metabolic functions by supplying the appropriate dietary needs to the body system. The nutrient signaling pathways are coupled to cellular processes, and the cross-talk between the two is critical in maintaining a well-balanced systemic function of the body. The systemic imbalance may occur under circumstances such as stress, and fatigue, which may trigger inflammatory responses in the body and inflammation may cause unwanted health conditions (Think heart disease, cancer and all diseases of aging). It has been shown that various dietary components may support key resolution pathways to inflammation, energy balance and metabolism via the ECS. Nutrients that may support healthy inflammatory response include omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, from a whole food matrix in the form of phytonutrients.
Key Ingredients Hemp Oil Complex includes calamari oil, dimagnesium malate, hemp oil (stalk and seed), TrueBroc®, and broccoli.
