We Think CBD is FTW!

We Think CBD is FTW!

One thing Six Fishes strives to do is look towards natural methods for treatment. Our patients expect high quality, tested safe herbs. Now, we’re excited to include CBD to Six Fishes’ holistic medicine.

So what exactly is CBD? CBD is shorthand for Cannabidiol, a group of compounds found in hemp seeds with non-psychoactive properties and significant medicinal benefits. 

CBD is not an illegal or recreational drug. Regulated by the USDA, these hemp products predominantly contain CBD, not THC, found in cannabis. It doesn’t induce a feeling of being high. Instead, it alleviates pain and helps reduce spasms, inflammation, and anxiety, making it an excellent choice for anyone who suffers from chronic pain, seizures, MS, autism, and ADHD. CBD is packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, and antioxidant properties that could help fight neurodegenerative disorders. 

We carry a variety of CBD products to help reduce pain and inflammation. We trust the quality of products from Elixinol, which meets our high standards. We carry their capsules, liposomes, and extract drops. Their founder, Paul Benhaim, traveled all over the world in search of the best hemp after realizing the potent power of the fatty acids found in hemp seeds. Their products are distributed globally, where they are researched and developed by medical professionals and undergo rigorous pharmaceutical testing. 

In addition to CBD that is taken internally, we also use it topically for different kinds of pain, ranging from migraines to back pain to neuropathy. We also offer therapeutic massage using CBD infused almond oil. It’s our new gold standard for pain-relieving massage. Blue Ridge Hemp Co. is based out of Asheville, NC and provides us with our massage oils, gels, and salves. We love their icy-hot balm, and we can barely keep it on the shelves!

Have you ever tried CBD products for pain relief? What was your experience? If you’re curious, Six Fishes invites you to try a CBD massage, and book an appointment! Talk to our practitioners to see what CBD products they would recommend for your needs.

For the past two years, our founder Cara Frank has attended the World Cannabis Business Conference in New York City and returned with a wealth of knowledge on the properties of CBD. She was deeply moved by her conversations with parents of severely ill children. Please check out the non-profit group The Realm of Caring, which helps provide cannabis to adults and children suffering from a multitude of diseases such as epilepsy, cancer, and Parkinson’s who cannot afford the treatment themselves.
