Mama Lou has long been dedicated to the pursuit of herbal healing, hailing back to the Oregon Medical Marijuana days before modern recreational legalization. If you take a peek back in the Oregon Leaf archives (exactly nine years), you’ll even see her on our cover in November of 2014 – first appearing in our pages growing CBD-dominant cultivars at Sweden Farms as a source for The CO2 Company.
Today, she’s developed a namesake brand under The CO2 Company umbrella, with four RSO options and a loving lineup of Cannabis and hemp tinctures containing complementary Ayurvedic herbs. Each bottle contains a base of MCT coconut oil and hemp-seed oil, with an organic cane alcohol, full-spectrum extract. The exact herbal ingredients depend on the particular blend.
We dropped a little of each under our tongue, but you can try it in a beverage or empty capsules that are often available in your local health supplements section. We prefer to drink it in something hot like tea to tackle any taste, speed up the solution and really drive the rate of relaxation. Self-care seems scarce for us modern adults (who knows, maybe we’re just doing it wrong), so you have to soak up that sweet serenity when you can! Let’s dive into the lineup and land on which Mama Lou’s will lend you the perfect pampering.
THC Energy Cannabis and Hemp Tincture
This uplifting option features 33.1mg THC and 0.8mg CBD per 1ml serving, with over 1,000mg of total cannabinoids in the bottle. A kick of energy comes from a special blend of flaxseed, turmeric, Celastrus paniculatus (also known as the intellect tree), bacopa monnieri (often called Brahmi or water hyssop), and pandanus (a palm-like, deciduous tree or shrub).
1:1 Wellness Cannabis Tincture
For a balanced bliss, you’ll find flaxseed, holy basil, ginger lily, spearmint, turmeric, lemongrass, ginger, amla (Indian gooseberry), Tinospora cordifola (a climbing shrub known as guduchi) and eclipta alba (also known as false daisies). A perfect potency of 17.6mg THC and 17.2mg CBD per 1ml serving settles in with a smooth dose of physical and mental repose.
CBD Relief Cannabis Tincture
The CBD Relief Cannabis blend contains 2.1mg of THC and 36.7mg of CBD per 1ml serving. Mama Lou’s recommends it for consumers looking to “support calmness and focus by reducing anxiety and targeting inflammation.” Relief relies on the aid of turmeric, ginger, Boswellia (a tree known for its fragrant resin), Celastrus paniculatus and vitex negundo (a large aromatic shrub).
CBD Sleep Cannabis Tincture
If the sweet release of sleep evades you, try this tincture. Its gentle blend of 5mg THC and 30.4mg of CBD per 1ml serving flings you into the fuzzy embrace of slumber, with the help of flaxseed, Valeriana wallichii, nutmeg, Celastrus paniculatus, bacopa monnieri, Cyperus rotundus, and gota kola.
CBG Calm Cannabis Tincture
The “calm” in this tincture trickles in from a 1:1:1 blend of CBG, CBD and THC, with roughly 11-12mg of each cannabinoid in every 1ml serving. Flaxseed, cardamom, cinnamon, ashwagandha, saffron and mucuna pruriens provide a pleasing palette in which to paint the perfect picture of tranquility.
