Lumi is a retail company based out of Oregon that aims to relieve pain through their various CBD-infused products. As established by founder Ashley Dellinger, Lumi specializes in aromatherapy, setting it apart from other oil-based and edible options in CBD consumption. In recent years, inhalable essential oil options have gained traction in relieving stress and promoting positive health benefits. Dellinger followed suit in the health industry, adding CBD to the equation to enhance the therapeutic capabilities of each oil.
CBD and essential oils both stimulate the endocannabinoid system. Dellinger discovered that combing both types of oils compound the effects of each on this system; this is known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect, commonly used in reference to the additional cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, also applies to essential oils that act upon the endocannabinoid system.
Lumi promotes the inhalation of essential oils and CBD versus diffusing it into the air. Direct inhalation allows the oils to cross the blood-brain barrier effectively which results in a more prominent effect than if they were simply diffused into the air. Lumi provides several aromatherapy options for its consumers:
- Personal diffusers that are easy to stow and travel with
- Terpene cartridges with terpenes from different cannabis strains
- Vape pen additives for those who already use their own inhalation system
Lumi provides a unique method of consuming CBD, catering to those who wish to choose which cannabis strains they want their terpenes to come from. With or without the addition of essential oils, Lumi’s options for aromatherapy effectively deliver full-spectrum CBD.
