About Enriched Nutraceuticals
Nutraceuticals – More Bang
A nutraceutical is a pharmaceutical and standardized nutrient. In the US, “nutraceuticals” do not exist as a regulatory category; they are regulated as dietary supplements and food additives by the FDA under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources that are purported to provide extra health benefits, in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foods. Depending on the jurisdiction, products may claim to prevent chronic diseases, improve health, delay the aging process, increase life expectancy, or support the structure or function of the body.
Companies offering CBD/THC or hemp oil only products are focused on the endocannabinoid system and the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Combining hemp oil with specific ingredients provides more ‘bang for the buck.’ Over-the-counter supplements can improve health and wellness, but enriching with hemp oil optimizing effectiveness.
Laughing Frogs uses a best-of-shelf strategy for nutraceuticals developed by our team. These are products that are superior to existing products you might find in any health foods store or market like Whole Foods. Think of viewing the dozens of natural solutions, for say sleep, on a shelf, picking the most effective, best-seller, with clinical test results, and then enriched with a full spectrum of hemp extracts. These elements each have a tailored approach to consumer needs. With Laughing Frogs, you have the premier Hemp Enriched Nutraceuticals available anywhere.
We take the guesswork out of organic supplements. Our solutions always focus on total homeostasis and may be found in a wide range of vitamin, grocery, cannabis, and small retailers nationwide. You may order our products online with a 15-day money back guarantee with our assurance you are getting the optimal solution for a specific ailment or to meet your health and wellness needs. Laughing Frogs is a brand you can trust.

Cannabis: Marijuana vs. Hemp vs. CBD
It can be confusing talking about this exciting revitalization of marijuana and hemp in discussions of medicine, products, legality, distribution, and education. Here’s a simple way to view it–IT’S ALL CANNABIS! Hemp has been grown globally for uses like clothing, building materials, and the plant’s extract value for organic healing. Marijuana plants go back thousands of years and have hundreds of varieties, are female plants that are thicker, juicier, and fuller than hemp.
Marijuana contains large amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) the psychoactive ingredient and CBD (cannabidiol) non-psychoactive, with various cannabinoids (CBD, CBC, CNB, CBG, CBDA, and CBL). They can be a Sativa (uplift) or an Indica (relax) plant. Hemp plants are taller, thinner, Sativa male plants with little or no THC, but an abundance of CBD. They are not as juicy as marijuana, and it takes more plant to make oils than marijuana, but it is cheaper to grow.
Hemp has been cultivated more widely in the last few years, at a lower cost, with less licensing and legal issues surrounding it. It is generally considered legal in the U.S. since it does not have the psychoactive (high) issues for users, states, and federal regulations. Product companies are using hemp oils to create a wide range of solutions for health and wellness. CBD will not get you high and is known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties.
So, when you use the term hemp oil, it designates oils that have less than .3% THC. All Laughing Frogs products are made with organic, quality hemp oil with no THC.
When do I need CBD and/or THC?
Since Laughing Frogs is not in the recreational marijuana business, we do not offer THC-based products under the Laughing Frogs brand. Our approach is a nutraceutical (food containing health-giving additives) base, focused on specific health and wellness values, enriched with hemp oil to accelerate the base.
For example, our Laughing Frogs Sleep™ product contains melatonin for peaceful sleep like many sleep aids, plus hemp oil to reduce inflammation that may be causing pain and lack of sleep. In advanced cases for migraines, appetite stimulation (post-chemo), Parkinson’s, cancer, Chron’s, and others, you will need CBD/terpenes +THC and other elements associated with the marijuana plant to be effective. As your mom would say, “Eat right, exercise, and think happy thoughts,” are big steps in balancing your life and body.
But, if you have issues like arthritis, joint pain, gout, IBS, skeletal, endocrine, or muscular issues our Hemp Enriched Nutraceuticals can work quite well. Cannabis companies are forbidden from making medical claims, so educating yourself on how cannabis works is your best tool, plus always consult with your doctor. Going to a cannabis dispensary will get you recreational advice since they can’t make medical claims either. Educate yourself online, then find a brand you trust, start low and go slow, and become your own caregiver.
The ‘Cure-All’ myth claims of how cannabis can cure cancer, Alzheimer’s, etc. While cannabis is a great organic alternative to big pharma, and can have some amazing results, it has limitations. Can cannabis cure cancer? NO! Can cannabis help with cancer related issues like appetite stimulation for chemo patients, reducing tumors, YES. Always consult with your doctor or knowledgeable cannabis experts before trying any ‘miracle’ cures.
The approach is homeostasis. If your body is in balance (non-acidic), then cancer and other chronic diseases have less of a chance of attacking and growing. We make our Hemp Balance Daily Softgel Tablets for everyday use which is a good regimen to follow as a preventive measure. Things like Rick Simpson Oil and other THC-based products can reduce cancer tumors and help with cancer treatments, but it does not cure cancer. Educate yourself on what hemp and THC/CBD can and cannot do.
Bottom-line: Total Body Homeostasis through daily use and specific uses can improve your health and wellness dramatically.
