Sherry has spent approximately 55 years researching the properties of hemp CBD and the benefits to the body. In the 60s she bought her hemp from Amsterdam. Some studies have taken her back to the early 70’s when cannabis research was being conducted by alternative doctors. They wanted to learn about the effects on the brain and the body. Her doctor friends did studies with lab animals and found that tumor cells could not replicate in the body if CBD-A was present in the bloodstream. In 1974, everything was shut down by the U.S Government. All research was stopped, funding cut off, and it became a criminal offense to continue research in the United States. Her doctor friends were closed down completely, but they were using marijuana, not hemp.
Israel is 20 years ahead of the United States. They have taken over the research with human clinical trials, and they have made amazing discoveries only one year into their studies. They have confirmed anything affected by inflammation can be greatly improved with hemp CBD. In addition, scientists have discovered that hemp CBD can greatly reduce the risk of heart disease. Heart disease is linked to chronic inflammation of the arteries. The inflammation can be stopped with topical CBD, as well as tinctures, and, best of all, suppositories. The research team also discovered that with enough CBD-A in the blood stream, cancer cells are unable to replicate.
Sherry believes that applying CBD topically is generally best, because it goes directly into the bloodstream when rubbed into the skin, however, the most effective way is with suppositories. They are faster, more efficient, and bypass the liver and kidneys. When CBD is ingested, as with edibles or supplements, the stomach acid dilutes its potency, and changes the CBD depending on the stomach acids, which change constantly; depending on what you have eaten. Tinctures under the tongue are very effective, but because of FDA rulings, Sher-Ray™ is not licensed to do internal medicine, which tinctures technically are. However, many of our customers tell us that they use our Premier 15 in that way. Sher-Ray’s™ tinctures are all food grade, so they are safe to use sublingually.
All of Sher-Ray’s™ CBD formulas are tested twice by a 3rd party Oregon Certified Lab, once when we get the Full Spectrum CBD Extract, and again after the formula is finished to get the exact amount of CBD per milligram. Oregon Certified Labs are the gold standard for testing in the USA. Each bottle or jar has the batch number, manufacture date and milligrams per milliliter. They do vary slightly. All formulas are tested by Oregon state regulated labs. We test for potency, solvents (not required), pesticides, and terpenes. All raw ingredients are tested for radiation by a Geiger counter, not to exceed 60 clicks (the Government allows 100 clicks). Sher-Ray™ products have the purest & safest ingredients available. If you want the best, buy Sher-Ray™.
