Indie Green Market is the sole distributor of St. James’s Well
At St. James’s Well, our lab’s vision is to create wellness and skincare products that are highly effective. To do that, we use scientifically proven ingredients at therapeutic concentrations. Many companies spend more money advertising than they do on research and development.
This is truly backwards. With over 20 years experience in prescription drug development, we agree the most time and effort should be spent getting the product right. We believe it is imperative to understand the science behind our products.
Every day your body works hard to maintain homeostasis. Homeostasis is a harmonious, stable, condition wherein you are best equipped to handle everything that life throws at you. This delicate balance between your body’s systems and its environment is no small feat. Sometimes we need help. Whether it’s getting more sleep, eating more purposefully, or managing anxiety, there are many variables that can make achieving homeostasis feel like a fairytale.
In the 1990s, scientists were researching the effects of cannabis on the human body and discovered that we have our own system of cannabinoids called “endocannabinoids.” Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that react on specific receptors in our body, specifically those receptors associated with appetite, sleep, and stress,(among others). So, “endocannabinoids” are these aforementioned chemical compounds that are created within our body rather than outside of it.
CBD works together with a bodily system that is already dedicated to using cannabinoids as fuel for maintaining homeostasis. This makes CBD a natural option for assisting your body in its endeavor to run as smoothly, happily, and healthily as possible.
Like details cobbled together after a night out, the specifics of the history of St. James’s Well changes depending on who you ask. What we do know is that across Ireland the rich Irish traditions of folklore and religion meet in physical locations such as St. James’s Well in Carlingford.
St. James’s Well – a location so idyllic it makes sense that old Irish diary entries mention the presence of fairies – is said to be the location of many patron saint feast days that culminated in visitors bringing vials of the water home to save for when a remedy was needed. Our company was inspired by centuries of people turning to the earth for healing. We hope to approach our brand with the same reverence as the people of Carlingford approached their Holy Well.
