What is the system that allows CBD and Cannabis to work? 

The Endocannabinoid System. 

The ECS is the boss of the whole body.  Did you know that?  Even over the brain and central nervous system.  And its a system that not even your doctors know or understand. Its hard to wrap your head around that!

Watch this incredible video by Dr. Rachel Knox, an Endocannabinoid expert and Certified Medical Cannabis Advisor explaining what it is, how it works and why our products help your body and mind.  

What goes into a consultation?

CBD consultations offer a focused assessment on the use of CBD (cannabidiol) as a natural and safe option.

Consultations offer complete, in-depth assessment of your unique needs and the ways CBD can be used as part of a treatment plan to help with your specific concerns. After the visit, you will feel educated and informed about CBD and how it is unique from cannabis.

Consultations are offered both in-person and remotely through phone or Zoom, and with options to have products shipped safely to your house.

These consultations are available to people living all over the United States and do not require a prescription or a medical marijuana card.  All the products we offer online and in person are similar to those sold in a dispensary or what we call “pharmaceutical grade.”

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many different compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are unique because they act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system found throughout the body.

Every being with a spine has receptors to activate and bind with cannabis! That means great for the whole family. And its the only plant in the world that can CLOTHE US, FEED US, HOUSE US and HEAL US!

Medical research shows us that CBD partnered with other cannabanoids found in the plant can offer incredible relief to symptoms associated with many ailments. The FDA has recently approved CBD in epileptic medicines and have many clinical trials, studies and patents.

According to a report from the World Health Organization“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

Client Success

Living with chronic discomfort, stress and mood issues for so very long had, in my mind, completely taken over taken me. It wasn’t until I met with Marlies, the owner of Indie Hemp Co, that I truly understood what Cannabis could do for me and how it works with my body. She takes so much time to educate and consult, making sure I’m comfortable and getting the results I need. I’m happily living my best life now and can’t stop telling others about the how this has turned my mind around.  I never knew how powerful this plant really is.
