ETST High Grade CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil: ETST High Grade CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil is natural and formulated using a wide array of cutting-edge technologies. ETST is capable of supplying and offering its High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil in all 50 states and over 40 countries as a nutritional and dietary supplement designed to support overall health and wellness. ETST's High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil is All Natural and derived completely from the federally legal industrial hemp plant. Industrial Hemp (Hemp) is not marijuana and will not get you 'high' and it does not require a medical license of any kind to authorize purchase. 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.
ETST is very encouraged with the recent positive preliminary test results on the effects of ETST Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD (Cannabidiol) 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. Chen was to investigate the effects of ETST Hemp oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol on animal breast cancer cells and on normal cells. If Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol has the same effect in vivo, it may help with cancer patients. However, further experiments are needed to investigate the effects of Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol on different cells, particularly on immune cells. ETST recently entered Stage 2 of Research on its Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD (Cannabidiol) on immune cells. On October 20, 2014, ETST entered into an Assignment of Patent Application with Dr. Wei R. Chen for assignment of a patent pending under Application number 62061577 entitled "Cannabidols Composition and Uses Thereof." ETST has secured, and was assigned, this new patent for Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD (Cannabidiol) and Hemp Oil Enriched with Proprietary Additives.
ETST invites all interested parties to contact the company directly at email@example.com in regards to securing its All Natural High Grade CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil for wholesale, resale, private labeling or distribution. Furthermore, ETST is now offering the availability for the Health and Wellness markets, consumers and its shareholders to try its High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil in small quantities at discounted prices online at www.earthsciencetech.com/cbd-rich-hemp-oil/. ETST is open to forming new strategic partnerships, joint ventures and/or supplying vendors, resellers and third party distribution companies with its High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil at wholesale prices in order to better help supply the health and wellness markets on a large scale. The company feels it can grow at a much faster pace by focusing on becoming a large wholesale distributor of its High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil and by aligning itself with key strategic partners and third party resellers that are already well diversified in the Health and Wellness markets.
