Where compassion and science meet
Unlocking the healing power of CBD botanicals
Informed by Clinical Experience
Green Earth Medicinals was born from a belief that cannabinoid-based medicine has a role to play in managing health and addressing serious chronic conditions. Dr. Christian Le, a board-certified physician with over a decade of experience in cannabinoid therapies, began consulting with patients who were choosing to add hemp CBD and medical Cannabis to their wellness regimens. He soon recognized that there was insufficient scientific data and product consistency in many of the hemp CBD products hitting shelves across the country.
Working in collaboration with our Chief Formulator, Dr. Jason Miller, Dr. Le sought to create a new standard of accountability for hemp CBD products in the marketplace. Doctors Le and Miller have applied their passion for wellness and their extensive clinical experience working with patients with chronic diseases to the creation of Green Earth Medicinals – a line of CBD botanical products with verified purity and potency.
A Standard of Excellence
We believe in the healing power of hemp-derived cannabinoids. We are committed to creating standardized, efficacious, medical-grade products that function in a clinical capacity. To that end, we source CBD-rich hemp from organic farms in southern Oregon. We employ cutting-edge extraction and refinement techniques under strict cGMP protocols to capture as much of the plant’s broad-spectrum matrix of phytochemicals as possible. We quadruple-test our products for potency and purity.
Broad Spectrum Medicine
At Green Earth Medicinals, we integrate traditional wisdom with modern science. For thousands of years, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have included the hemp plant in their apothecaries. Throughout that time, they employed a “whole-plant” approach to the use of hemp. Even if they had the technology to create CBD isolates devoid of terpenes, flavonoids, and trace cannabinoids, they would not have done so. They understood, and we have learned from them as well as from modern science, that CBD is most efficacious within its naturally-occurring matrix of phytochemicals. We use the term “broad spectrum” to describe this holistic approach to cannabinoid therapy.
The Synergy of CBD Botanicals
We believe in harnessing the accumulated wisdom of our ancestors with the aid of modern science and clinical experience. Our formulas go beyond CBD and the entourage effect of broad-spectrum hemp to include the healing potential of over 30 additional botanicals.
We add botanicals to our CBD formulas for three interwoven reasons:
To enhance efficacy: Botanicals can be added to CBD formulas to increase specific desired effects. For instance, our CBD Oral Spray contains kava (Piper methysticum), an herb revered in Polynesia for its mild sedative and euphoric properties. Kava helps to enhance those same calming and focusing properties that are found in CBD.
To increase absorption: CBD is a fat-soluble molecule that can be difficult for the body to absorb. The addition of tangerine (Citrus reticulata), which is an excellent source of limonene, helps open pores in the skin and mucous membranes to allow CBD to penetrate to deeper layers where it’s needed most.
To target specific systems: Certain herbs when combined with CBD can help direct CBD to specific body systems. An example of this is Asian corydalis (Corydalis yanhusuo), an herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to alleviate pain. When added to our Relief Cream, Asian corydalis helps direct CBD to the pain response system, amplifying its pain-relieving potential.
An Ethos of Integrity, Compassion, and Respect
At Green Earth Medicinals, we don’t cut corners in our quest to create the purest and most efficacious CBD botanical products. Our formulations are based on current research at every stage of conception and production. We insist on integrity in everything we do:
From the CBD-rich cultivars that our cultivation partners grow for us,
To the organic soils and methods in which our hemp is grown,
To the byproduct-free, broad-spectrum extraction methods we employ,
To the purity and quality of the botanical ingredients we source,
To the good manufacturing practices we follow at every stage of production,
And finally to the way we communicate openly and honestly with our customers and practitioners.
We created Green Earth Medicinals to meet a need, not to add more products to the crowded CBD category. Our CBD botanicals are consciously designed with wellness in mind. Our intention is to empower people to live calmer, better-rested lives with decreased pain and increased recovery. We created these products with a doctor’s spirit of compassion and care.
The hemp plant has a long and storied history of use as a source of medicine, food, and fiber for humanity. We honor its many gifts to us, and we are grateful to the countless pioneers who have steadfastly contributed to our knowledge of this plant throughout the millennia. We practice deep respect for hemp, for the many benefits it offers us, for the Earth in which it is grown, for the materials and processes we employ in our products’ manufacture, and ultimately to you, our valued customers. Our uncompromising commitment is to be forthright, conscientious, and diligent in every aspect of our enterprise.
