(Newswire.net -- January 19, 2016) Salem, UT -- There are many misconceptions about medical marijuana, especially for those uneducated about it’s medical benefits. Utah based company, Yew Life is striving to change that. Through the use of advanced technology and our understanding marijuana’s medicinal application, they have been able to harvest it’s most powerful component, Cannabidiol, also known as CBD. Many people know that marijuana can produce a high, but what they don’t understand is that thanks to modern science, we can breed plants that are high in Cannabidiol which has powerful medicinal uses and low in THC, the chemical that produces a high.
Yew Life has been able to accomplish this through the use of hemp which is also a Cannabis sativa plant, similar to marijuana. Because hemp is legal to sell in all 50 states, they are able to extract high levels CBD and sell it in an oil form. Hemp products have already been on the shelves of major retail stores for years, which is how Yew Life was able to get into the Utah market. But there is more behind Yew Life than just selling products. They are committed to helping people improve their health through the use of natural and alternative medicine.
Zane Gray, founder of Yew Life, originally became involved in the medical marijuana industry as a consultant in the state of California. A father had contacted them because his son had Tourette’s syndrome and was suffering from 400-500 myoclonic seizures a day. They had tried everything and were afraid his 5 year old son had only a few weeks left to live. His child was still eating baby food, had to wear a diaper, and could barely talk.
Although results vary with each patient, this young boy saw a difference in the first day of using their product. After one day of using CBD oil this boy experienced his first day without seizures in 5 years. Day after day, this boy was doing better and better.This improvement in his health also allowed him to reduce the pills he was taking from 22 pills per day down to 2 pills per day. This is how Zane Gray became very interested in the benefits of CBD.
With a lot of research, the company discovered that CBD worked really well with intestinal issues, especially those suffering with Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Because Gray’s wife was having digestive medical issues, she went to California so she could try CBD drops to see if it would help with her issues. Not only did it improve her digestive issues, but it also helped improve other medical issues she thought were unrelated. About this same time there were debates on Utah’s Capitol Hill on whether they should allow children with seizures to use CBD oil. It was at this time that Gray began to look into alternative sources of CBD oil and how to get involved in making it more available to the public.
With hemp being a great alternative that also produced CBD, the research started. It is still illegal to grow hemp within the United States. So Yew Life found a company in Canada that grows hemp and extracts the oil from the hemp plant before it is imported to the United States. Because Yew Life has been able to identify a process that makes the distribution of CBD legal to distribute in all 50 states, they are making access to this oil available nationwide. Because their products are natural, they are considered to be dietary supplements, in which case they are not allowed to make any medical claims. However, there is an abundance of research to show that it has helped people with different types of ailments.
There are other companies that also make CBD from hemp. But what makes Yew Life different is that they have researched where to buy their hemp so it isn’t filled with heavy metals, pesticides, and other materials that could be harmful when ingested. They test their product throughout the entire production of processing from beginning to end to ensure the integrity of their oil. Good carrier oils are also used, like coconut because it also has great medical benefits. Small amounts of yew oil are also added because of its supporting research regarding the improvement of cancer patients. This is also how they decided on the company name, Yew Life.
One of Yew Life’s biggest goals is to educate the public about the benefits of CBD. Gray was brought up in a very conservative environment where he had been taught that marijuana was bad and causes negative side effects in people’s brains. It was initially a hard decision for Gray to make before agreeing to consult with the California based company. Doing his own research and educating himself, was the only way for him to know whether or not this could be helpful to others.
Because Yew Life products are organic, natural, and only have high levels of CBD, you couldn’t get high from it even if you drank 50 gallons of it.
At Yew Life, they love to hear from people who have truly felt a difference from using their products. In order to make their product more accessible, they have put CBD into several different forms for consumption. Yew Drops contain the CBD oil, Yew Juice puts CBD oil into flavored drop form that can be easily added to any drink. And Yew Chews, which puts CBD into a delicious chocolate chew.
Gray strongly urges people to do their own research on the benefits of CBD. There are doctors across the globe that have documented patients results while using CBD with ailments from breast cancer, prostate cancer, autism, and tumors, to stress, and anxiety.
