Excellent info, Jack!
I truly believe that mixing cannabis oil with black seed oil (BSO) is going to be a boon for many reasons.
One, cannabis oil (CO) is expensive so if you infuse it with, maybe, a 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, or 1:5 ratio of CO:BSO I think this will create a powerful synergy while reducing costs by creating a higher yield formulation.
And the good thing is this…
If you want a mild or close-to-zero cannabis “THC high”, then obviously you’d use a higher CO:BSO ratio like maybe 1:4, 1:5 or higher until you find that perfect balance FOR YOU.
I’ve started experimenting on myself. I’ll post my feedback in a month or 2. Right now, I’m in “Mad Scientist” mode.
Alicia, I can emphatically claim that mixing cannabis oil (THC) with black seed oil together is an EXCELLENT combo. As I mentioned above, by playing around with different ratios, every individual can find a good combo that works for them. But in general, I find a 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 CO:BSO ratio is a fantastic way to get a good steady mental buzz while still benefiting from the win:win SYNERGY these 2 oils bring to the table.
I have also been experimenting with an unrefined organic cannabis sativa hemp oil (low or no THC) I get from a herbalist with a DIY cannabis THC oil from another herbalist in a 1:1 ratio. Fantastic stuff, great vibe!
No getting overwhelmed with the THC — especially on hot days. You just feel “steady” and can go about your day accomplishing all tasks at hand. I enjoy putting about a half teaspoon under my tongue to get the show on the road before I head out the door.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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:
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.
