timeless wisdom from the one and only Green Baker.
Avocados have had a rich history of providing nutritional and medicinal benefits. Abundant in healthy fats and Omega oils, the avocado has become one of the most sought after fruits by those who are looking for a way to supplement their nutritional intake and improve their health.
In this blog, we will cover some of the well known, and not so well known health benefits of Avocado, Cannabis as medicine, and why we combined the two natural remedies to create our line of small-batch Avocado Oil Cannabis Tinctures.
Before we start diving into why Avocado Oil Tinctures can be so helpful for so many, let’s cover some of the known benefits of avocado oil.
Avocados are jampacked with what are referred to as monounsaturated fats, or fats that are more complex and bond the organic compounds that make up the avocado oil. These fats are extremely good for your body, and when combined with the extremely low levels of saturated fats, Avocado oil has been shown to increase LDL levels in users, in turn, lowering the levels of “bad” cholesterol.
Rich in Vitamin E and Potassium, Avocado oil has been shown to help increase blood flow and decrease the high blood pressure in some users. Because avocado oil helps the body absorb nutrients, the Vitamin E and Potassium can be quickly absorbed by the body and processed to extract access sodium. This greatly affects blood pressure and has been shown to greatly decrease this in many users.
One benefit that is often discussed is the detoxifying benefits of avocado oil. High in chlorophyll and magnesium, avocado oil aids the body in processing the many toxins that we ingest on a daily basis. The body processes these toxins and the magnesium and chlorophyll work together get rid of anything that may be harmful to the body.
Without getting too technical, avocado oil has specific organic compounds called, “pro-inflammatory cytokine molecules”. This is really just a fancy way of saying that in the same way that avocado oil works to reduce blood pressure, it also allows for more blood flow to help decrease inflammation and has been shown, in some cases, to curb bone degeneration and help reduce arthritic symptoms.
Avocados contain both Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids. Omega 9 fatty acids, in this case, Oleic Acid, has been proven to have significant anti-carcinogenic properties, that in some cases have been shown to prevent or slow cancer cells from growing and spreading. Avocado oil also provides additional anti-carcinogenic antioxidants.
High in good fatty acids, low in saturated fats, avocado oil is one of the up and coming supplements in the health and wellness space. Oleic acid, the Omega 9 fatty acid helps increase blood flow to muscles and promotes a normal, healthy digestive process. Avocado oil also works to stimulate the enzymes that break down fats and aid in fat storage. Adding avocado oil to your daily fitness routine, or post-workout beverage can help to burn fat.
Throughout this blog, we have touched on this topic, but avocado oil is truly like the HOV lane for other nutrients to be absorbed into your body. The fatty acids break down and allow for all of the nutrients like Vitamin E, Magnesium, and Potassium to be easily absorbed once ingested, or absorbed through the skin.
Finally, avocado oil is filled with Lutein. Lutein is a protein that has been shown to drastically slow the degenerative effects of Glaucoma and other degenerative eye diseases. Instead of listening to the old wive’s tale that carrots are best for your vision, reach for the avocado oil instead!
Cannabis has long been used as a medicinal option in holistic practices. Even though these claims have not been proven by the FDA, and we are still working on studying the full medicinal effects of cannabis, here are a few ways that cannabis has been shown to have a positive medicinal effect.
Because of the many cannabinoids found in the full-spectrum plant, its chemical composition makes it very useful for helping to treat pain in many users. The cannabinoids in the plant work with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help reduce pain and alleviate many of the associated symptoms.
Weight gain and laziness are two of the most common misconceptions with cannabis users. Yes, cannabis has been shown to increase appetite in many users, but it has also been linked to increased regulation of insulin levels in users that are managing their caloric intake.
Cannabinol, commonly referred to as CBD, has been shown to have positive effects on the healing of broken bones. A study conducted at Tel Aviv’s Bone Research Laboratory concluded that bones that were treated with CBD healed at a faster rate and once healed were stronger and much harder to break.
At Green Revolution, we believe in creating products that help you live a healthier, more positive life. With that in mind, we took on the task of creating a cannabis tincture that was unlike any other. Our product development team, researchers and production team aimed to create a line of products that not only provided a new way for adults to elevate their daily moments with cannabis but also to enrich their lives with vitamins and nutrients that their typical diets were missing.
As a result of that research, we created our line of small-batch Avocado Oil Tinctures. Made using full-spectrum cannabis flower and extracted using our innovative Ultrasonic Nano-Emulsification Technology, we have created a tincture that provides the user with highly bioavailable cannabis, but also those Omega 9, Omega 3 fatty acids and nutrients that avocado oil provides.
But why bring these together?
We have already covered that avocado oil helps ease the process of your body absorbing various nutrients. By combining cannabis, we have created a tincture that provides your body with the terpenes and cannabinoids in a highly bioavailable way, making it one of the most effective, trusted, and powerful ways to consume cannabis.
