Over the last two years, many of our patients have become regular users of the Healer line of tinctures developed by Dr. Dustin Sulak, one of the nations leading cannabis doctors. We are excited to announce the arrival of the newest products by Healer, Healer Hemp CBD & Healer Hemp CBDA, now available at Trilogy Wellness. These Hemp-derived tinctures are a great way to get friends and family to try using quality CBD products without the commitment of becoming a Medical Cannabis patient.
The same nano-filtration process that makes Healer tinctures so unique is present in this new line. This unique process aids in removing impurities and delivering more of the plants “entourage” of beneficial acidic & minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and complex phytonutrients.
While CBD and CBDA share many psysiologic properties, they also have some important differences:
CBDA is more easily absorbed when taken by mouth, compared to CBD.
CBDA and CBD both have anti-inflammatory properties but may act via different mechanisms in the body.
CBDA may be more potent than CBD for some applications based on studies of rodent models of nausea.
Early human research findings show that even small amounts of CBA, can have significant physiologic effects.
Which Formula is Right for You?
It is recommended that patients start with Healer Hemp CBD, which contains a 6:1 ratio of CBD to CBDA, and the Healer Spectrum. The Healer Spectrum consists of naturally occurring eight minor cannabinoids, twelve terpenes, flavonoids, and other important phytonutrients.
Healer CBDA might be the better product choice for you if:
You know that you respond better to CBDA than CBD
You have tried CBD in the past in moderate to high amounts (20-25mg) and have been unsatisfied with the results
You are currently using THC and you do not want your hemp product to decrease its effects.

First, what are tinctures?
Believe it or not, tinctures are nothing new. Tinctures were the age-old method of consumption before the cannabis prohibition was enacted. Tinctures are liquid concentrates created by extracting cannabinoids and terpenes into alcohol, glycerin or a high burning temperature oil (like MTC or coconut oil).
Tinctures have a slightly longer onset time than inhalation (typically 10-45 minutes) but provide longer-lasting relief (effects can last between 2-6 hours). Tinctures are discrete (no odor) and do not require any special devices; making them easy to administer when needed. Tinctures allow precise dosing and are taken orally which eliminates the respiratory irritation you might get from inhalation. Many patients report being able to attain higher medical benefit from lower dosages. If stored properly, they can have a very long shelf-life; making them more economical and sustainable.
What makes the Healer Tinctures so special?
These doctor-developed products are thoughtfully designed for all types of patients and all types of ailments. They are deliberately crafted to help prevent symptoms rather than chase them. Each of the tinctures come with a step-by-step dosage guide and response tracker to help patients find their optimal dose and frequency.
The Healer tinctures are produced from Natures Heritage cannabis and are crafted to maintain their complete range of medicinal compounds (entourage of acidic cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other minor constituents) and provide a high medical value. The extraction process provides whole plant medicine, not allowing valuable parts to be watered down or non-existent.
The Healer Tinctures come in four different versions:
These thoughtfully crafted tinctures are made for both new and experienced users. They range from impairing to non-impairing and include dosage suggestion plans for various symptoms and ailments including pain, anxiety, depression, lupus and dementia. Looking for focus and performance enhancement? These tinctures also have you covered! They allow for precision micro-dosing and offer better results at lower doses due to their potent entourage of cannabis extracts.

Did you know that our bodies are designed to interact with cannabis? All of us have a complex regulatory system that called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It is a group of receptors throughout the human brain, body, central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS creates and maintains our body’s internal stability (homeostasis) by adjusting the flow of neurotransmitters and regulating bodily functions including appetite, sleep, emotion and movement (just to name a few). The discovery of the endocannabinoid system has impacted nearly every area of medicine and sparked extensive studies into the pharmacological, biochemical, and clinical effects of cannabis.
Cannabinoids found in cannabis interact with the ECS and will either up-regulate or down-regulate a variety of physiological and cognitive processes. Cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD) bind to receptors in both our brain (called CB1 receptors) and body (called CB2 receptors). The CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain and spinal cord and mediate our psychoactive and physical effects, whereas CB2 receptors are predominately located in our peripheral nervous system and help to regulate immunity and inflammation.
Cannabis contains more than 100 types of cannabinoids which all have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to. Researchers believe cannabis is so effective in treating so many different ailments because of the versatile way the plant’s chemical compounds act on all parts of the body- not just the brain. Each product and strain has a unique cannabinoid profile that can be used to target specific symptoms and provide different types of relief. Ask our Trilogy experts which types of cannabinoids are best to treat your symptoms so we can recommend an appropriately suited product.
