Medterra CBD + Manuka Cream, 125mg, 1oz
Medterra has combined 99.6% CBD with Manuka Honey for a rich and soothing experience. Manuka honey comes from New Zealand. Through a natural process the Manuka honey transforms into Methylglyoxal (MGO), a unique property with antimicrobial elements. This cream is blended with over 20 organic botanical ingredients.
Medterra combines two of nature's prized products in a relaxing cream
If you are a fan of CBD, you'll be sure to enjoy it in an organic cream blended with Manuka Honey. If you have not tried CBD this topically applied formula could be your entry-level product. Because Medterra's CBD + Manuka is applied to skin, it is directly absorbed and less likely to circulate through the entire body. Apply it only where you think you need it.

What does Manuka Honey do?
Manuka Honey is US FDA-approved for use topically to mitigate ulcerating wounds, particularly related to diabetes and thick 2nd degree burns, and donor sites.1 Its benefits include antibacterial properties and a thick viscosity that keeps the wound moist.
Manuka honey is produced by bees after they pollinate the Manuka Bush in New Zealand. The bees pollinate the Manuka Bush only once a year for several weeks. The bee nectar turns into Manuka Honey. Then Manuka Honey changes to Methylglyoxal (MGO), a compound that has unique natural bacteria-fighting properties.
One of the ways Manuka Honey quality is measured is using the UMF grading system which measures the amount of MGO, Leptosperin, and dihydroxyacetone (DHA) a precursor to methylglyoxal and determines the overall MGO levels.
Medterra only uses honey that scores UMF rating of 12+. This score is considered very high quality.
What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid, called cannabidiol. It is a chemical compound naturally found in the hemp plant. It is one of more than 100 cannabinoids that have been discovered in the hemp flower.
Research proves that humans have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that works in unison with cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) that the body makes naturally. Plant-based cannabinoids, called phytocannabinoids are thought to boost the body's endocannabinoids.
Scientists and medical experts say they have just scratched the surface identifying the potential benefits of hemp's cannabinoids.
Medterra is a manufacturer of industrial CBD and certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority. All products are made and grown in the USA. Products are third-party tested and certificates of analysis are available for each batch. They are guaranteed to be 99.6% pure CBD, non-GMO and THC free.

What is isolated CBD?
CBD isolate is made by extracting cannabinoids from the hemp flower and filtering out all other cannabinoids including THC. Hemp-CBD products that do not isolate any phytocannabinoids are called full-spectrum. To be legal full-spectrum hemp-CBD products and CBD isolate products must contact less than .3% THC.
Is CBD FDA-Approved?
CBD is an active ingredient in the FDA-approved prescription drug Epidiolex. Epidiolex is prescribed for adults and children to reduce seizures caused by Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) or Dravet syndrome (DS). That is the only FDA-approved use of CBD. However, under the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD is legal if it meets strict criteria established in the bill.
Can CBD make me high?
No, the cannabinoid CBD found in the hemp plant cannot make you high. Although hemp and marijuana are part of the cannabis plant family, hemp is naturally low in the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and naturally high in CBD. Marijuana is naturally high in THC and low in CBD. CBD is also known to cancel out the psychoactive properties of THC. Medterra CBD products contain zero THC. Federal law requires that all hemp products contain less than .3% THC.

Is Manuka Honey FDA-approved?
It is approved topical use in the treatment of wounds, ulcers, burns and infections caused by the staphylococcus bacteria. Among its mechanic of actions is to draw water out of the bacterial cells, and its acidic pH ranging from 3.2 pH to 4.5 pH may help promote healing. Its acidic pH helps break down enzymes that inhibit proteins and peptides necessary for skin healing.
