From Seed to Shelf, We Control the Entire Process

At our farm in Winston-Salem, N.C., we grow, harvest, process, and manufacture every Southern Soother product. Frank Sink is a life-long horticulturist with over 30 years of experience. He owns and operates one of Winston-Salem’s most respected nurseries – Frank’s Perennial Border, Inc.

Frank brought his love of plants and years of scientific understanding to the world of hemp growing and processing to create the Southern Soother line of products. He spent over four years perfecting the growing, processing, and formulating every Southern Soother hemp-derived product.

Hundreds of different hemp varieties, each with its own genetic makeup, are used throughout the industry. Frank has found a unique variety that provides a valuable combination of cannabinoids and terpenes. Along with his proprietary extraction processes, he creates clean, highly effective products.

One important thing to note is that people and pets each can have differing results from hemp-derived products. For example, some may benefit from smaller doses, while others may require more to achieve their desired effect.

CBD: Educate Yourself and Understand What You’re Putting in Your Body

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS): All animals, including humans, dogs, and cats, have a neuromodulatory system in their bodies that is referred to as the Endocannabinoid System.

This system plays important roles in the central nervous system as well as the immune system. The ECS is comprised of cannabinoid receptors that engage with endocannabinoids produced within our bodies. Cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, and THC are produced by the cannabis plant but will also engage with the cannabinoid receptors in our bodies.

Many studies show that these externally produced cannabinoids help to boost the ECS when it gets out of balance (homeostasis).

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant in its early stages of development. It begins as CBGA, which is the acid form of the molecule, but as the plant matures, these molecules convert primarily into CBDA and THCA. Through a process called decarboxylation, the acid forms of these molecules are converted into CBG, CBD, and THC. Once in this form, they are more readily available to the Endocannabinoid System in our bodies.

Based upon animal studies with mice, CBG shows promise in treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome, glaucoma, and bladder dysfunctions. It has also been shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington’s disease and inhibit the growth of cancer cells in mice with colon cancer.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a significant cannabinoid within hemp plants. However, unlike THC, the other primary cannabinoid found in cannabis that makes you high, CBD is non-psychoactive.

Terpenes are naturally occurring compounds found in the essential oils of plants. Terpenes have beneficial effects and work synergistically with cannabinoids, called the “entourage effect.” This effect, which you may realize with all Southern Soother full-spectrum oils, includes creating a sedative-like effect, reducing pain, relaxing muscles, reducing inflammation, limiting nausea and vomiting, and calming anxiety and depression symptoms.

The “Entourage Effect” is the theory that all the naturally occurring compounds in the hemp (cannabis) plant work in a synergistic manner to provide maximum benefit to your body.

Full Spectrum CBD products have numerous beneficial cannabinoid compounds and low levels of Delta-9 THC (below 0.3% by weight). This low quantity of THC is not potent enough to cause the “high” that people typically associate with cannabis use, but if you are subject to drug testing, you should probably refrain from using Full Spectrum products.

Isolates are produced by further refining hemp extract and separating out individual cannabinoids such as CBD or CBG. These isolates can be nearly 100% pure and free of THC, making them an excellent option for consumers who cannot use products containing THC. These products may still provide relief from pain, anxiety, depression, etc., but Full Spectrum products may work best for maximum benefit.

Our current product offerings. which are available in varying strengths include:

  • Full Spectrum Hemp CBD tinctures
  • Isolate CBD, CBG, Delta-8 THC, and Delta-10 THC Tinctures
  • Salves
  • Edibles

Southern Soother – From Seed-to-Shelf

When our hemp plants are harvested, we move them into our on-site production facility for processing.
Everything we produce is third-party tested for purity and to ensure the dosages are accurate.

Once processed, we mix the extracts into tinctures, edibles, and salves in different volumes and strengths that
you can purchase from us at our farm on Clemmonsville Road in Winston-Salem.
