What is DMSO?
DMSO, or Dimethyl Sulfoxide, is a topical anti-inflammatory/pain reliever that is currently the only FDA approved chemical to treat Interstitial Cystitis. Its properties provide for one of the best compounds in the world for penetrating the skin and accessing the bloodstream.
Why haven’t I heard about DMSO?
DMSO has been in use since the early 1950’s, both as a treatment for pain and as a preservative for organs during transplant surgery. The biggest proponent of DMSO was Dr. Stanley Jacob, head of the organ transplant program at Oregon Health Sciences University. Dr. Jacob believed that the capabilities of DMSO were far-reaching. However, because it is classified as an industrial solvent, in addition to its cost-effectiveness and wide availability, it is believed the FDA blacklisted this product due to lack of control and having not performed an adequate amount of testing. There have been no conclusive harmful effects of DMSO recorded.
Is DMSO safe for everyone?
Simply put, yes. On rare occasions, DMSO can cause moderate skin irritation. However, these instances are not common. We also include Eucalyptus as a preventive measure to maintain proper moisture in the skin.
How much CBD do I need to use?
The answer truly lies in the afflicted area. We recommend using the roller to draw a circle around the painful area, and to then “color-in” the circle. Utilizing this volume will likely prevent the need for reapplication.
How does CBD work?
Our bodies contain receptors throughout as a part of the endocannabinoid system. This system is involved in a great many physiological processes including but not limited to memory, pain, appetite, and many more. These receptors receive CBD through the bloodstream by way of a variety of delivery methods, such as:
- Tinctures (Mouth drops under the tongue)
- Creams or lotions
- Topical Oils
Is it Safe?
Simply put, Yes. CBD oil is manufactured in one of three different ways: solvent extraction, hot press, and cold press.
Solvent Extraction: Refers to the process of utilizing a solvent such as butane to blast plant matter and chemically strip CBD from the plant itself. This can be hazardous as the process for removing gases after extraction is not exact or measurable, nor is it currently a regulated course of action.
Hot Press: This is typically accomplished through the use of a hydraulic device that applies pressure under high temperatures to excrete a nectar-like substance from plant matter. This is effective but does not provide for complete retention of all cannabinoids and terpenes.
Cold Press: This is typically the preferred method for consumers, as no plant matter or compounds therein are lost, thus providing for a more thorough, pure, and potent endproduct. This process is similar to hot press, however instead of high temperatures, very cold temperatures are used. All terpenes and cannabinoids are preserved, creating the potential for the entourage effect.
911 is derived from cold-pressed industrial hemp. We obtain lab testing for every batch of 911 to ensure the highest quality ingredients.
What can I use 911 for?
The list of benefits is simply too long to capture! We recommend trying the product for yourself on your ailments, you won’t be disappointed.
