We pride ourselves here at Daily Mom on always finding the most unique products and brands to introduce to our readers. So when we stumble upon items that are unconventional and dare we say controversial, we jump on them! We believe in accepting, challenging, and educating ourselves on everything that is out there, because you never know when you might find the next best thing, or the next best thing for your best friend, your mom, or your crazy neighbors.
With that mild disclaimer out of the way, our Daily Mom Spotlight today is featuring Lord Jones, the Los Angeles based brand who brings the world the finest cannabis infused products, whether you “need” them (the research DOES say…) or you just want to relive your college days in a more legalized, accepted, and refined manner – hey, no judgement here!
The Lord Works in Mysterious Ways
More than half of the United States now have laws legalizing marijuana in some form or another, usually on the medical side. The taboo is slowly fading, and world-wide scientific research is indicating that there are actually some incredible health benefits that come from this still disputed-over plant. In addition to possibly improving lung health (yeah, we were surprised about that one too!), controlling seizures, slowing the progression of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease, treating and alleviating symptoms of bowel disease, muscle spasms, arthritis, skin conditions, and Lupus, weed can also eliminate nightmares, help ease anxiety, make you a bit more creative, and protect your brain. And that’s not it… there are even more positive aspects of lighting up a joint now and then.
Sounds sort of like the magical cure-all potion, but of course, as with anything, if you abuse it, it’s not so great. Despite where you fall on the “What I Think About Pot” spectrum, you can’t deny the research and the numbers that show it’s an incredibly effective natural substance that can help heal the body and mind. Lord Jones believes it, and that’s why they are out to bring consumers a variety of products that are infused with pure California-grown cannabis extract.
The 411 on the 420
Marijuana is thought to have at least two active chemicals that serve as healing properties when used for medicinal purposes. The main differences between the two are…
CBD : cannabidiol
- Won’t get you high
- Anti-psychotic properties
- Can actually counteract the effects of THC (see below)
- More appealing treatment for medicinal use
THC : tetrahydrocannabinol
- Will get you “high” (in large enough doses)
- Psychoactive properties
- Still has medical benefits, although CBD is preferred for medical purposes
What Lord Jones thinks…
“Researchers theorize that cannabis various terpenes activate cb1 receptors in the brain and cb2 receptors throughout the body to make use of cannabidiol (cbd) and tetrahydrocannabinol (thc) along with the plants other unique compounds, known as cannabinoids. Scientists believe that when cbd and thc are combined, the result is greater than any single cannabinoid used in isolation, a phenomenon they describe as the Entourage Effect. We have developed our Lord Jone’s formulas to harness the Entourage Effect using the finest sourced ingredients.”
What you Can Get from the Lord
Lord Jones offers cannabis infused body lotions, a variety of edibles, and t-shirts of course, because what good brand doesn’t offer tees?! We’re especially interested in the topicals, so we’ll chat about those today.
There are two different concentrations of lotions offered, 5:1 and 1:1, depending on how much pain relief you are in need of.
The 5:1 brings you 100 mg of CBD and 20 mg of THC, which if you refer back to the 411 above, you’ll see that the medical professionals prefer CBD, so this only makes sense, of course. This lotion packs a punch, serving as an extra strength formula for the ultimate in sore muscles, joint pain, and skin conditions – such as the ever infamous eczema. The vacuum pump is essential in bringing you equal amounts of both CBD and THC in just one pump, which dispenses 1 ml of creamy, cooling lotion each time. This easily absorbable lotion doesn’t smell medicinal either, but lets off a fresh, minty citrus scent.
If you use as directed, you won’t be strung out, but you will enjoy less aches, pains, and inflammation, which is a satisfying feeling knowing you used the natural goodness from the Lord to get there.
Just to give you a frame of reference, the 1:1 concentration boasts 20 mg of CBD and 20 mg of THC, making it a more everyday formula, perfect for normal moisturizing and tension relief, as well as an ideal lotion for massage therapy. The only difference is a bigger size bottle and different amounts of the cannabis chemicals. You’ll still enjoy Lord Jone’s signature scent and the convenient vacuum pump delivery system.
