Green Earth Medicinals
Where compassion and science meet
Informed by Clinical Experience
Green Earth Medicinals was born from a belief that botanical medicine has a role to play in managing health and addressing serious chronic conditions. Dr. Christian Le, a board-certified physician with over a decade of experience in botanical therapies, began consulting with patients who were choosing to add hemp and other botanicals to their wellness regimens.
Dr. Le soon recognized that there was insufficient scientific data and product consistency in hemp products hitting shelves across the country.
Working in collaboration with our Chief Formulator, Dr. Jason Miller, Dr. Le sought to create a new standard of accountability for hemp products in the marketplace. Doctors Le and Miller have applied their passion for wellness and their extensive clinical experience working with patients with chronic diseases to the creation of Green Earth Medicinals – a line of botanical products with verified purity and potency.
A Standard of Excellence
We are committed to creating standardized, efficacious, medical-grade products that can function in a clinical capacity. To that end, we source our hemp from organic farms in southern Oregon. We employ cutting-edge extraction and refinement techniques under strict cGMP protocols to capture as much of the plant’s full-spectrum matrix of phytochemicals as possible. We quadruple-test our products for potency and purity.
Full-Spectrum Plant Medicine
At Green Earth Medicinals, we integrate traditional wisdom with modern science. For thousands of years, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have included the hemp plant and other medicinal plants in their apothecaries. Throughout that time, they employed a “whole-plant” approach to the use of these plants. Even if they had the technology to create isolates devoid of terpenes, flavonoids, and other phytochemicals, they would not have done so. They understood, and we have learned from them as well as from modern science, that the medicines in plants are most efficacious within their naturally-occurring matrix of phytochemicals. We use the term “full spectrum” to describe this holistic approach to botanical therapies.
The Synergy of Botanicals
We believe in harnessing the accumulated wisdom of our ancestors with the aid of modern science and clinical experience. Our formulas go beyond the entourage effect of full-spectrum hemp to include the healing potential of over 30 additional botanicals.
We add botanicals to our formulas for three interwoven reasons:
To enhance efficacy: For instance, our RELIEF | Oral Spray contains Kava (Piper methysticum), an herb revered in Polynesia for its mild sedative and euphoric properties. Kava helps to enhance those same calming and focusing properties that are found in hemp.
To increase absorption: The addition of tangerine (Citrus reticulata), which is an excellent source of limonene, helps open pores in the skin and mucous membranes to allow compounds to penetrate to deeper layers where they are needed most.
To target specific systems: Certain herbs when combined with hemp can help direct compounds to specific body systems. An example of this is Asian Corydalis (Corydalis yanhusuo), an herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to alleviate pain. When added to our RELIEF | Topical Cream, Asian Corydalis helps direct the active compounds in hemp to the pain response system, amplifying its pain-relieving potential.
An Ethos of Integrity, Compassion, and Respect
At Green Earth Medicinals, we don’t cut corners in our quest to create the purest and most efficacious botanical products. Our formulations are based on current research at every stage of conception and production. We insist on integrity in everything we do:
From the cultivars that our cultivation partners grow for us,
To the organic soils and methods in which our hemp is grown,
From the environmentally friendly, full-spectrum extraction methods we engage,
To the purity and quality of the botanical ingredients we source,
In the good manufacturing practices we follow at every stage of production,
And finally in the way we communicate openly and honestly with our customers and practitioners.
We created Green Earth Medicinals to meet a need, not to add more products to the crowded hemp product category. Our botanicals are consciously designed with wellness in mind. Our intention is to empower people to live calmer, better-rested lives with decreased pain and increased recovery. We created these products with a doctor’s spirit of compassion and care.
