Do you know the ABC's of CBD?
“Keep Calm and Carry On” while still a good motto, may not be as easy as it sounds, these days. Heightened worry, fear, and anxiety are understandable responses to the uncertainty, disruptions, and challenges we are currently experiencing in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re doing our best to keep you active and connected through our online barre classes, but there are a lot more hours in the day, and we care about your wellness — mind, body and soul. To that end, we’ve partnered with Brandon Family Farm (home to Kingston Hemp Co.), an awesome family owned and operated organic farm, located in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, to sell their certified pure grade CBD oil.
How can CBD help you to manage your overall health and well being in these unsettling times (and probably in any times)?
Read on to learn the ABC’s of CBD:
CBD is A safe remedy for a wide variety of health conditions
CBD hemp oil is the product derived from the hemp plant, which is high in CBD (cannabidiol) and low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). As more is being learned about CBD, and its potential effects on health, it is becoming more and more accepted as a legal and safe remedy for a wide variety of health conditions, such as: chronic pain and inflammation, arthritis, sleep disorders and insomnia, anxiety, stress and depression, skin conditions, chronic diseases, low appetite and poor metabolic function. Since it has a minimal amount of the psychotropic compound THC, use of this oil does not result in a traditional “high”, so its effects are generally considered therapeutic, not mind-altering.
It does a Body good
CBD is an effective form of support for human health, due to the body’s endogenous cannabinoid system. This regulatory structure of the body has millions of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system, which react not only to plant-derived cannabinoids (such as hemp and marijuana) but also to natural cannabinoids produced within our body. When hemp oil is used and processed by the body, it is effectively boosting the function of the endocannabinoid system, helping our body regulate itself in many different ways. Not only does true CBD hemp oil contain high levels of cannabidiol, but it also vitamins, nutrients, minerals, volatile acids, and antioxidants that will further supplement your health.
It Can take the “edge” off
CBD hemp oil is well known to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, as well as prevent depressive episodes by increasing the levels of “positive” hormones and neurotransmitters in the body. Although some people claim that marijuana makes them “paranoid” or anxious, that is largely due to the psychotropic THC found in cannabis.
Available in orange and peppermint flavors.

Why we chose Brandon Family Farm, to be our new BFF
ONE COMPANY FROM SEED TO BOTTLE
Brandon Family Farm (BFF), producer of Kingston Hemp, is an organic farm and processing company that is completely vertically integrated. They control every step from planting seeds in their rich organic soils, to infusing the hemp flower into oils and bottling. They ensure food safety and quality control every step of the way.
All hemp is grown in a field of fertile Loess soils in West Kingston, Rhode Island. These soils have been managed organically for over 15 years. BFF believes top quality hemp oil is made from top quality hemp flower and takes great care in all aspects of cultivation. Being organic vegetable growers since 2014, they know how to grow great plants and the 2019 hemp crop was no exception. BFF hand harvests the tops of the plant and dry the flower indoors under low temperatures to preserve the valuable terpenes.
NATURAL LIPID INFUSION FOR A PURE, EFFECTIVE PRODUCT
To create a truly “Full Spectrum” CBD product, BFF infuses whole organic hemp flower into certified organic MCT coconut oil directly, skipping any extraction and “purification” process. Lipid infusion is a traditional technique and captures all the cannabinoids, and terpenes present in the hemp plant. Isolates and distillates, which are highly refined extracts of hemp are used by almost all other companies, making their products much less likely to have the diversity of BFF’s product.
EVERY BATCH LAB TESTED AND VERIFIED
Every hemp crop, and oil infusion is lab tested by the highly respected R.I. Analytical lab (New England’s leader for environmental services) for cannabinoid potency and terpene content. These numbers prove the effectiveness of BFF’s methods and determine dosage guidelines, which you can work out yourself, or seek the advice of your health care provider.
BFF is proud that the efficiency of their process and vertical integration allow them to sell high quality hemp oil for a considerably lower price than their competition. They offer one of the highest quality products in the United States at perhaps the most affordable prices anywhere, based on a dollar per mg basis.
ORGANIC INGREDIENTS ONLY
Kingston Hemp Co. oils are made with certified organic hemp from the Brandon Family Farm.
Added flavorings and MCT oil are certified organic as well.
Kingston Hemp Co., hemp oil contains 1500mg or more of CBD, about 25-28 mg per ml in each batch, about 1 mg of THC and approximately 0.5 mg of CBG per ml, both of which may contribute beneficial effects.

As with any supplement it is best to ask your doctor or health care provider for your best recommendation of dosage.
