Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid and nervous system to have various therapeutic effects. Ingesting cannabinoids through infused products is a healthier, more controlled, and more effective option than inhaling smoke or vapor.
Alto sources cannabis and hemp from Clean Green Certified growers in the United States. The hemp for our CBD Essentials is sun-grown in native soil using “beyond organic” methods including compost teas and biodiverse areas rich with beneficial insects and bees.
Every single-serving packet of Alto Essentials is carefully infused with 5 milligrams of cannabinoids: a gentle but noticeable dose for practically anyone to feel comfortable experimenting with.
Of course, many people who choose not to use cannabinoids still support their legalization. Legalizing cannabis reduces drug-based violence, provides tax revenue to fund public services and schools, and reduces some of the racial and economic prejudices built into our policing and legal systems.
Alto, a company which profits from the sale of legal cannabis and hemp, has a moral obligation to support the decriminalization of marijuana insofar as it is an opportunity for criminal, racial, and economic justice. We unequivocally stand for the clemency of all people currently incarcerated for non-violent, victimless drug charges. We support increasing controlled research on cannabis. Ultimately, we want people to consider cannabinoids as rewarding and acceptable tool to use in pursuit of a healthier, happier, elevated life.
