Why We Use White Willow Bark in our Alleviate Products

Why We Use White Willow Bark in our Alleviate Products

White willow bark extract is another superstar addition to our CBD products for pain and inflammation.  It is the synergistic ingredient in our Alleviate line to add further anti- inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-oxidant power.

White willow bark, or Salix Alba, has been used by cultures for over a thousand years for aches, pain, and fever, especially back and joint pain and headaches.  Many are familiar with one of its compounds, salicin that turns into salicytic acid in the body, the precursor to the widely used aspirin developed in 1899. Similar to many plant-based remedies, white willow bark contains many other identified and unidentified compounds than just the isolated salicin that add to its effectiveness. These compounds include other salicylates, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamin B12, iron, potassium, and tannins.

A review of available research shows the effectiveness of white willow bark for lower back pain, joint pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and mild to moderate acne. The pain reducing ability of white willow bark is related to its ability to regulate inflammatory prostaglandins.  There are few robust clinical trials on white willow bark, as for the majority of natural plant remedies with low profit margins.  Many countries in the European Union have approved the sale of white willow bark for rheumatic symptoms and other pain conditions.

White willow bark is generally considered safe if consumed in moderation and is an excellent alternative to commercially produced aspirin that uses isolated salicin with fewer side effects than aspirin or NSAIDS. It is not advised for those allergic to aspirin, who have gastric ulcers, or are pregnant or breast feeding, although little research on side effects is available.

Additional uses of white willow bark based on its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-oxidant, anti-pyretic, and immune boosting properties include reducing headache pain, menstrual cramps and PMS, tooth pain, and the fever and aches and pains of the flu and colds. With its wide variety of nutritional compounds and known uses for pain and inflammation, white willow bark is the perfect addition to the pain and inflammation properties the raw, organic, hemp-based CBD in our Alleviate line of products. We appreciate your positive feedback on the helpfulness of our enhanced CBD Alleviate and hope to hear more of your experiences.

CBD for Pets

CBD for Pets

Everyone understands that an animal ingesting any amount of THC or marijuana can have undesired effects for our furry friends. However, some of us are questioning whether CBD for pets can be helpful for a variety of ailments the way it is for humans. CBD (cannabidiol) is found in hemp and unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) it does not have any psychoactive properties.

Since CBD is so new to America, modern medicine has to catch up with their research as millions of pet owners share their experiences of how CBD has positively affected their pets’ lives. Just as humans, many pet owners have reported CBD to have improved arthritis, seizures, pain and even noise phobia within animals. Fourth of July, for instance, can be very stressful for your pets – click here to read how to ease your dog’s anxiety on the 4th of July with CBD.

CBD has also been known to ward off cancer cells by slowing the cell growth and blocking the ability to produce energy. It’s been reported as a sort of anti-tumor effect that can actually increase tumor cell death. 

At 101 CBD, we have bacon CBD oil for dogs. As with our other product lines, we use only organic products with raw, full-spectrum CBD which drastically increases the number of ailments that can be healed, as you can see on our 101 CBD Cannabinoid Profile

Of course, when it comes to CBD for pets, always make sure to do an extensive amount of research on the product and company before treating your pet with CBD for any reason.
