We are now making truffles with a little panache! Our newest truffle is made with a white chocolate ganache, Ploughgate Creamery Butter, Rosemary and Lemon infused with CBD Oil. We are also infusing our Chamomile Lavender Truffle with the oil. With the increasing awareness of CBD Oil, we have teamed up with Elmore Mountain Therapeutics to create these delicious truffles dipped in dark chocolate. The list of possible health benefits from CBD Oil is remarkable. As stated on the informational PDF provided by Elmore Mountain Therapeutics: Many users report CBD’s substantial efficacy when treating inflammation, pain, anxiety, seizures, digestive issues, cancers, autism, arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, IBS, multiple sclerosis, PTSD and stress, just to name a few.
But what is CBD Oil? CBD is the name of the compound found in the cannabis plant, as explained in an article from Medical News Today, written by Jon Johnson from April 29, 2017. Johnson continues to tell the reader that, It is one of numerous compounds found in the plant that are called cannibinoids. Researchers have been looking at the potential therapeutic uses of CBD. Oils that contain concentrations of CBD are known as CBD oil, but the concentration and uses of different oils vary. Most of the CBD used medicinally is found in the least processed form of the cannabis plant, known as hemp.
Is it legal? Ashley Reynolds of Elmore Mountain Therapeutics informs us that Yes. Hemp derived CBD products are legal in Vermont. Under Vermont Law Title 6, Chapter 34, strains of cannabis with THC level of 0.3 percent or lower qualify as hemp, and therefore, as an agricultural product which may be lawfully grown as a crop, produced, possessed, and commercially traded in Vermont.
Another question that often arises is will the CBD Oil make you “high” like THC? Johnson in the Medical News Today articles clarifies that CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it. However, it does appear to produce significant changes in the body, and it may have medical benefits listed earlier in this article.
Note: Each truffle is infused with 13mg of CBD oil, this is considered a half dose. Therefore, 2 truffles would be equivalent to one dose of CBD oil.
