When it comes to pain management, we are living in a world overflowing with choices. Flip on your media/information source of choice, and soon you’ll be hit with ads for prescription drugs, over-the-counter remedies, “as seen on TV” devices (socks, bracelets, braces, things to hold you upside down), and an entire Internet filled with offerings to cure what ails you. The value of these products can range from extremely useful to merely a waste of money. The sheer volume of these products on offer speaks to a desire found in many to find an answer outside of a prescription bottle. While there are many options out there for those seeking a solution in alternative medicine, there is an often misunderstood but scientifically promising one offered right here in Northern Utah.
Amanda Patcyk was looking for just such a solution.
“I was suffering from a lot of medical issues, and I was unable to receive access to medical cannabis. So, I found the next best thing which is CBD.”
After seeing such positive results for herself, Amanda decided to incorporate CBD oil into a variety of products and began selling them to her friends and family.
“Soon I was helping more and more people,” and in June of 2017, Amanda opened Mother Nature’s Recipe CBD.
So what exactly is CBD oil? CBD is the name of one of the compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant referred to as cannabinoids. The most well-known compound in cannabis is delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This THC is the most active ingredient in marijuana. THC is notorious for the mind-altering “high” it gives when broken down by heat and introduced into the body, such as when smoking the plant or cooking it into foods.
While THC and Hemp are psychoactive, CBD is not. It does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it. However, it does appear to produce significant changes in the body and may have medical benefits. Studies published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, Neurotherapeutics, Addictive Behaviors, Epilepsia, Current Pharmaceutical Design, and the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology point to uses in pain management, potential cancer treatment, anxiety disorders, and aiding in overcoming drug and smoking addiction*.
Offering a wide selection of pure manufactured CBD products (drops, pain salves, pain creams, chapstick, anxiety rollers, face scrubs, bath bombs, suckers, etc.), Mother Nature’s Recipe is bringing these natural benefits to Utah.
“I utilize an integrative and holistic approach to psychotherapy with an emphasis on identifying and addressing current stressors, exploring past experiences and family dynamics, and developing positive life patterns. I’m beyond excited! I have put all my time, effort and money into this because I love to help people. Just seeing and hearing about the change it’s made in people’s lives, it’s that simple.”
So if you’re open to the possibilities of a more natural path to health and wellness management, you should give Amanda Patcyk a call and Mother Nature’s Recipe CBD a try. They’re here to help.
