When it comes to healing our bodies, ‘Mother Nature’ knows best
Young Living does not have a CBD oil, HOWEVER, you’re actually in luck that there is no Young Living CBD oil!
The more we understand about how various natural compounds (i.e. CBD, THC & Terpenes) interact within our own bodies, the more we find ourselves craving more of these natural, pure products. We do not wish to put anything into or onto our bodies which shouldn’t be there, so we have started making our own recipes using organic products from brands we trust. Glori Blends CBD and Young Living are very similar due to the fact that both companies understand and leverage the healing powers of naturally occurring terpenes.
Glori Blends is what Young Living CBD will likely try to emulate when and if they decide to bring a CBD product to market. That being said, why wait for Young Living to create a CBD product? Glori Blends leverages terpenes for a product which is natural, clean and EFFECTIVE!
What are terpenes? Terpenes are the natural compound which gives plants their smell and taste and are equally as important as CBD and THC in regards to healing power — and CBD oils are packed with terpenes! Terpenes naturally bind to our cannabinoid receptors along with cannabinoids such as CBD and together have compounded effects. (Think 1+1 = 3)
