Chen showed the effects of its Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol (provided by Earth Science Tech, Inc.) on animal breast cancer cells and on normal cells. The results of this preliminary study indicate that with appropriate dose, in this case with ETST proprietary Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol dose, Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol can inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells more than that of normal cells. This purpose of the experiment with the University of Central Oklahoma and its lead investigator Dr. Wei R.

It is lab tested multiple times during the manufacturing process, from seed to shelf. This also includes being tested for CBD content, other Cannabinoid content, yeast/mold/fungus, and bacteria like E. coli to ensure safety and top quality. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of the hemp plant (seed, stem and stalk). It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp (cannabis), and is commonly used as a dietary supplement to support general health, immune system support, nervous system and much more. Research shows that many scientists and doctors think the cannabinoids work synergistically to support the whole human endo-cannabinoid system (internal and natural human cannabinoid system). Furthermore, many scientists and doctors believe the endo-cannabinoid system plays a fundamental role in the functioning of many of the major human physiological systems, including the immune and nervous systems. Hemp oil contains CBD -- a non-psychoactive compound of the plant. There are millions of hemp oil consumers around the world and this number is rapidly rising with an increasing number of reports and studies showing a variety of benefits of hemp oil. ETST does not grow, sell or distribute any substances that violate United States Law or the controlled substance act. ETST does sell and distribute hemp based products.
