About Our Products

The Whole Plant Approach

Mary Jane’s Medicinals was founded on the belief that the wisdom is in the plant!
Instead of using a concentrate made from extracting just one or two compounds from the cannabis plant, we use an infusion process to make our cannabis topicals. This technique involves utilizing the whole plant in a gentle process which maintains a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes.

Our plants are sun grown—which is better for the environment and makes for more aromatic terpene profiles (we typically choose floral rather than “skunky” terpene profiles since our clients will be lathering the final product on their bodies!). The plants are grown using organic compounds, never chemical pesticides.

There are a myriad cannabinoids, terpenes, and other phytochemicals contained in the cannabis plant (see below for details) that can get lost in the extraction process. These chemicals all work together in a symbiotic way, which is also known as “the entourage effect”— the compounds interact synergistically to increase the medicinal impact.

When all of these chemicals and compounds that naturally occur in the plant are allowed to be present at the same time so that they can work together, they are significantly more effective than when they are isolated and left to work inefficiently on their own.

Produced with care and passion, Mary Jane’s Medicinals cannabis topicals have been conscientiously crafted using the whole plant in order to help your body heal itself.

The Science Behind How Our Products Work

The Endocannabinoid System
Endocannabinoids and their receptors are neurotransmitters found throughout the body — including in your brain and other organs, your glands and connective tissues, and at the cellular level in your immune system. Endocannabinoids control homeostasis, which is the way your body stays balanced and healthy, even when it’s faced with extreme external stresses and changes. The receptors comprise the endocannabinoid system (ECS) located in the central and peripheral nervous system, and they are responsible for regulating pain, emotions, motivation, and cognition.

Phytocannabinoids
Mary Jane’s Medicinals products contain phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant, which are naturally occurring cannabinoids that are chemically very similar to the endocannabinoids your own body produces. You may already be familiar with some of these phytocannabinoids, such as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — the main psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis plant — as well as cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN). More than a hundred individual cannabinoids have been isolated in cannabis, and it’s estimated that there are at least another hundred yet to be identified.

When you rub our cannabis topicals on an area of discomfort or injury, the phytocannabinoids will bind to the endocannabinoid receptors in your peripheral nervous system which occur in abundance in the layers of your skin. They then send a message through your nervous system to stimulate your body’s natural healing process.
Basically this helps us humans get to our happy homeostasis place — that physiological place of harmony and healing.

This is why our products work so well for a wide variety of ailments. The cannabis plant’s phytocannabinoids stimulate balance in a similar way to your body’s own naturally occuring chemicals. Mother Nature sure is fascinating!
