nflammation in the body is at the root of most disease and discomfort. The over-abundance of sugar and processed food in the standard diet is a main contributor to this.

Premium Hemp Oil Now Available
atural Living Organic Food Co-op in League City is now offering an increasingly popular supplement, Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Extract Oil. This oil is made from medicinal grade industrial hemp organically grown in Colorado and processed only using carbon dioxide (no chemicals), which makes the finished product 100% THC-free (so it is non-psychoactive). The recently discovered endocannabinoid system is a biochemical communication system in the body that plays a crucial role in regulating physiology and mood. Industrial hemp-derived cannabinoids are nonpsychoactive compounds that directly interact with the cannabinoid receptors throughout the body. Extensive preclinical research indicates that these cannabinoids have potent anti-tumoral, antioxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsive, and neuroprotective properties. As with all nutritional supplements, each person should do their own research and consult with their licensed medical provider before use. Location: 219 N Michigan Ave., League City.
