Broadleaf and blackseed plantain Plantago major L. and P. rugelii Black seed and CBD oil are amazingly replenishing oils on their own, but we blended them for the ultimate health-promoting combo. Find out why it’s worth trying! Photos and descriptions of Black medic

Blackseed and broadleaf plantain

Family: Plantaginaceae (Plantain family)
Life cycle: Perennial, reproducing by seed
Native status: Broadleaf plantain is introduced to N. America, whereas blackseed plantain is native
Habitat: Turf, landscapes, waste areas

General description: Basal rosette of smooth, elliptic to oval leaves, up to 7 in long and 4 in wide. Leaves have prominent veins and usually inconspicuous hairs. As leaves mature the margins tend to get wavy. Flowers are inconspicuous, produced on a leafless stalk up to 10 in long. Flowers arranged in a spike that covers at least ¾ of the stalk. Has a fibrous root system.

Key ID traits: Rosette of oval leaves with prominent veins.

Similar species: Blackseed plantain can be difficult to differentiate from broadleaf plantain. Blackseed plantain usually has a red tinge at the base of leaf petioles and lacks hairs on leaf blades. Blackseed plantain has dull, black seeds whereas those of broadleaf are shiny and light to dark brown.

Miscellaneous: The plantains once were much more problematic as lawn weeds. They are much more susceptible to the growth regulator herbicides that are commonly used on lawns than many other perennial weeds. One reason for their greater sensitivity to herbicides than dandelion is the plantains have a fibrous root system rather than a taproot found on dandelions. The taproot stores more energy reserves than a fibrous root system, increasing the ability to come back from herbicide treatments.

Oval leaves with long, flat petioles characteristic of plantain. The red base of petiole suggests this is blackseed plantain.

Successful weeds adapt to stresses in the environment. This plantain is able to survive a mowing height of 0.5″ or less in a creeping bentgrass golf fairway.

Black Seed and CBD Oil: What is it and Why it is Worth Trying

Black Seed and CBD Oil by Nature’s Blends combines the health-promoting properties of black seed oil with the healing prowess of cannabidiol (CBD) oil.Our invigorating blend contains a replenishing mix of two potent plant-derived oils, both of which have their own restorative qualities.

CBD and black seed oil are fully compatible with each other. When combined, they work in conjunction with each other to boost our health and promote wellbeing.

Black Seed Oil

Black seed oil is one of the core ingredients of black seed and CBD oil food supplements. Black seed oil , also known as black cumin seed oil, is a natural oil derived from the seeds of Nigella Sativa (black seed) plant. Nigella Sativa is mostly grown in Eastern Europe, Southwest Asia and Middle East. It is a small plant with mellow purple, faded blue or white flowers.

Black seeds have been historically used as a medicinal remedy for many ailments. Considered a ‘cure-all’ in some parts of the world, black seeds as well as the oil derived from them was a common ingredient in herbal medicines.

Black seeds also pack a lot of flavour. Due to their distinct taste and aroma, black seeds are used in cooking and garnishing. They are commonly sprinkled in curries, used in pickling preserves and added to kneaded bread in some parts of the world. Similarly, pure black seed oil is a popular culinary ingredient and seasoning option in different regions.

Extraction Process

Black seed oil is derived from the seeds of Nigella Sativa. Best black seed oil retains its organic content and potent qualities. Since extremities in temperature can denature the natural compounds present in black seed oiland additives can reduce the overall volatility (and effectivity) of the produce, choosing the right extraction method is important.

Our Black seed oil is extracted from premium grade black seeds obtained from the fertile fields of Ethiopia. At Nature’s Blends, we ensure that no heat or preservatives are used in preparing our black seed oil.

Instead, we use the cold-pressing technique to extract oil from organic seeds. During the harvest, the output is examined, and the choicest seeds are selected for the oil extraction process. Then, black seeds are carefully cold-pressed (only once) within 24 hours of the original harvest to obtain pure and volatile black seed oil.

Benefits

Black seed oil caught the attention of researchers and scientists relatively recently, but several pre-clinic studies have been conducted to explore the potential of this ancient remedy. Day by day, we are finding out more about the health effects of this marvelous gift of nature. Here are some of the potential benefits of black seed oil:

  • Boosts the immune system
  • Improves liver function
  • Reduces swelling
  • Decreases the risk and severity of break outs, acne and eczema
  • Enhances brain health
  • Reduces cholesterol levels
  • Pain management and relief for arthritic patients
  • Improves blood sugar levels in diabetic individuals
  • Reduces cough
  • Helps with depression, mood swings and anxiety

CBD Oil

The other main ingredient used in making this blend is CBD oil. CBD is short for ‘cannabidiol’, one of the 104 natural compounds present in the Cannabis Sativa plant. While both hemp and marijuana shrubs fall into the Cannabis Sativagenus, hemp is used to make commercial products because it has a higher percentage of CBD (which is non-psychoactive) and negligible THC (psychoactive compound).

Cannabis Sativa has been with us for a long time. Historical records reveal that we have been cultivating hemp since 4000 BCE. In ancient China, hemp was considered a cash crop because of its economic importance. Hemp was used to make paper, ropes and clothes.

Cannabis Sativa extracts were also used as herbal remedy for a variety of disorders and ailments in different parts of the world. CBD enriched oils and plant extracts were used for pain and cramp relief. It was also a common practice to use Hemp CBD oil for relaxation because of its anxiety alleviating effects.

Extraction Process

CBD is extracted from green and purple tinted flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. Since hemp is an ultra-absorbent plant, cultivating hemp is a process that requires a lot of care and the right soil. If the soil has contaminants, the plant will soak them up and it will affect the purity of the produce. That is why a lot of care and caution should go into growing hemp and processing it for CBD.

At Nature’s Blends, we begin our harvest by identifying the best hemp plants in a lovely organic hemp farm in EU. The produce is examined, sifted through and only the best of the blooms are selected for CBD extraction. The flowers are then plucked, one by one and then left out to air-dry.

To obtain our full-spectrum CBD oil, we process our extracts with immense care. We use the powerful and efficient CO2 method to separate CBD from any impurities. CO2 is a particularly effective method of CBD extraction because it reduces the risk of contamination and ensures top quality.

Benefits

We have a long history with CBD oil but formal research on the properties of this natural remedy was initiated recently. Researchers began taking interest in this wonderful extract and began conducting in-depth studies about the effects of CBD oilon the human body. Though further research is currently underway, here’s what prior studies say about the potential benefits of CBD oil:

  • Neuropathic and inflammatory pain relief
  • Reduces anxiety and depression
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Substance abuse treatment
  • Combats insomnia by regularising sleep cycle
  • Minimises inflammation
  • Improves heart health
  • Reduces the severity and frequency of seizures for neurologic patients

Black Seed and CBD Oil

Black seed and CBD oil are great on their own but when they are combined, they form a power combo blend with the goodness (and benefits!) of both black seed oil and CBD oil. Our health-promoting black seed and CBD oil can be taken as a food supplement for an overall therapeutic experience.

Nature’s Blends black seed and CBD oil is a health-giving supplement. Here’s what makes it special:

Black medic ( Medicago lupulina )

Black medic is a low-growing summer or winter annual broadleaf plant that sometimes behaves as a short-lived perennial. It is found throughout California, except for deserts, to about 8200 feet (2500 m). Black medic is common in turf and inhabits agricultural land and disturbed areas. It is good forage for livestock and sometimes is cultivated for pasture or as a cover crop. However, black medic seed is a common contaminant in commercial alfalfa and clover seed.

Habitat

Grassland, pastures, vegetable and agronomic crop fields (especially alfalfa), orchards, vineyards, gardens, lawns, roadsides and other disturbed, unmanaged places.

Seedling

Cotyledons (seed leaves) are oblong, smooth, and about 1/6 to 1/3 of an inch (4–9 mm) long. The first leaf is oval and broader than it is long, with a smooth edge. True leaves are fully subdivided consisting of three egg-shaped leaflets with toothed edges and resemble leaves of the mature plant.

Mature plant

The main stem branches near the base. Stems grow prostrate or prostrate with tips pointing upward and can reach 1-1/3 feet (40 cm) long. The plant is hairy, especially the stems. Leaves are alternate to one another along the stem. Leaves are fully divided into three egg- to heart-shaped leaflets with somewhat toothed edges. Leaflets are about 2/5 to 7/10 of an inch (1–2 cm) long and finely toothed at the tip, which often bares a tiny, slender tooth. The stalk of the middle leaflet is longer than those of the lateral leaflets. Black medic is distinguished from California burclover by its hairy leaves; the latter has nearly hairless leaves. Also the small leaflike structures (stipules) at the bases of leaf stalks are not deeply lobed and have smooth edges or a few shallow teeth in black medic, whereas those of California burclover are deeply lobed, slender and curved.

Flowers

Flowers bloom from April through July. Usually ten to twenty yellow, slender, pealike flowers densely cluster to form a rounded flower head.

Fruits

Fruits are kidney-shaped pods about 1/12 to 1/8 of an inch (2–3 mm) long, strongly veined, and black at maturity. Each pod contains one seed, but does not open to release seeds.

Seeds

Seeds are oval to barely kidney shaped, smooth, yellowish to olive green, about 1/12 of an inch (2 mm) long, and have a small sharp point on the concave side.
