The health benefits of olive oil and CBD have been utilized around the world for generations and have become increasingly more recognized and celebrated in modern society. Here at House of Spain we are excited to share these wonderful health benefits with you.

From ancient days, olive oil was the oil of the gods. Of the sacred. Bathe in it. Anoint with it. Burn it in praise. Today, olive oil is the paragon of health foods. The golden foundation of the Mediterranean diet.

What makes CBD infused olive oil the healthiest oil?

Our body's endocannabiniod system is responsible for regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes that are necessary in maintaining a variety of functions including fertility, pregnancy, pre and postnatal development, appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory. Sufficient Omega 3 intake is necessary to repair and replace our CB1 endocannabinoid receptors so that our body is able to utilize both cannabinoids like CBD and endocannabinoids (ones our own body produces) which regulate homeostasis in the body.* Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is high in Omega 3 as well as polyphenol antioxidants, vitamin E, K and many other beneficial components which make this marriage of a super food with a super molecule so beautiful.
