Substances that work to prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules the body produces in reaction to internal and external factors.
Auntie Dolores (hidden meaning)
Our name, conceived in San Francisco’s famed Dolores Park, has significance beyond the person and the place. In Latin Dolore means pain. With Auntie before it, Auntie Dolores = Anti-Pain, so Auntie Dolores is the remedy.
The most therapeutic cannabinoid found in both cannabis and hemp. This safe, non-toxic and non-addictive compound has been studied for more than 50 years and is recognized for instilling calm, normal emotional balance and ease; supporting a healthy digestive tract and strong immune system; and promoting healthy joints, flexibility, and a normal inflammatory response.
A group of naturally occurring chemical compounds present in both animals and the plant genus cannabis, which includes both hemp and cannabis.
Auntie Dolores employs a deep cryogenic extraction process that creates a superior-grade oil. It starts with ethanol, an FDA-approved Class 3 solvent. During the cryogenic process, the ethanol is frozen to -80°C, making the solvent much more stable and effective. We then go a step further, using a thermal separation technique that increases purity, while destroying any and all pathogens and contaminants. Finally, our oil is distilled which removes any residual solvent and creates a clear oil, all while protecting the cannabinoids, terpenes and other natural compounds.
Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from within our bodies (and the bodies of all animals with the exception of insects). This biochemical communication system regulates the peripheral and central nervous system (including the brain), immunological system, organs, and vital physiological functions. It promotes homeostasis, ensuring the major systems of the body work synergistically. When there is a deficiency of endocannabinoid production, the ECS’s multiple receptors utilize the addition of phytocannabinoids to help create calm, ease, and balance and provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring.
This group of plant chemicals, found in nearly all fruits and vegetables, work as antioxidants to help protect the body against free radicals, toxins and stressors. Along with carotenoids, they are responsible for the vivid colors in fruits and vegetables.
Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
Indicates hemp oil that is sourced from the whole plant, which includes a rich cannabinoid, terpene, fatty acid and antioxidant profile, rather just isolating one or two compounds Together, these compounds create what is known the entourage effect, meaning that all work synergistically to produce the greatest benefits.
Both hemp and cannabis are members of the plant genus cannabis, flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae. However, they have different chemistry and characteristics. Hemp contains high levels of the therapeutic cannabidiol (CBD) and less than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for the ‘high’ associated with cannabis. Hemp is generally defined as Cannabis sativa L. plants.
The prefix phyto means plant. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from plants.
Organic compounds that provide aroma and flavor in cannabis, hemp, hops, oregano, clove, black pepper and many other plants. Terpenes are a very important component in hemp and cannabis as they influence beneficial effects by interacting with cannabinoids.
