Finding a Comfort Zone with CBD
By Berkeley Brooks
As Cannabidiol, or CBD, is fast becoming one of the most popular homeopathic remedies, Rye’s Paul and Jacqueline Covello have worked to provide CBD tincture products that people are comfortable using.
“People want to know the provenance of the product — who planted the seed and where it was planted and in what kind of soil — and that every precaution was taken to provide an organic, small-batch result,” said the Covellos. The Rye couple recently teamed up with close friend and fellow Woodstock native Phil Spinelli, transforming his organic vegetable farm into a hand-crafted hemp farm. Upstate Aura, the name of both the 40-acre farm and the product, is tucked beside the Catskill foothills in Medusa, New York.
“The desire to protect Mother Nature and consume organic, sustainable food and remedies is integral to life in Woodstock,” noted Spinelli. “Our hemp is carefully grown to simply help you feel like you’re relaxing in the Catskills on a perfect autumn day.”
People seek out CBD for a variety of reasons, among them: relief for chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, depression, neurological conditions, metabolic syndromes, neuropsychiatric illnesses, gut disorders, cardiovascular dysfunction, and skin diseases without harmful side effects.
The partners recognize that educating consumers, helping them overcome any fears and concerns they have regarding cannabis is vital to their success.
They gave us a quick education: Cannabis is the mother plant of hemp and marijuana. The former contains low levels of THC and high levels of CBD, the latter the reverse. Upstate Aura’s full-spectrum CBD tincture brings its THC levels down to a safe 0.3 %, eliminating any “high”. The owners believe in the “entourage effect”, that a miniscule amount of THC is necessary to allow for all the cannabinoids in the plant to intertwine for a more valuable, therapeutic experience.”
Paul Covello suggests newcomers “start low, go slow”: begin with a low quantity and consistently, slowly increase the dosage until the desired benefits are reached.
