Dr. Ahmed Jamaloodeen and Dr. Regina Hurley are both Health Professional Council of South Africa (HPCSA) Licensed Medical Doctors, they have both been advocates for the use of safe CBD by the masses since 2017. Their interest originated when they became founding members of the American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association (AMMPA). They have strived to become the leading authorities of hemp-derived CBD globally. Dr. Jamaloodeen has become a pivotal partner with Government to ensure safe agricultural practices. Dr. J, as he is known to everyone, Leeds Boerdery is the first pilot program to plant, harvest, and manufacture hemp products in South Africa using the farms zero-waste model. He works closely with National and Provincial Government officials as well as international Government officials to guide the way forward globally. Dr. Hurley has continued to educate medical professionals and the public on the many uses of Hemp-derived CBD, As a certified Cannabis Physician in the United States and an American Board-Certified Specialist anesthesiologist, Dr. Hurley uses medical knowledge to guide others on the safe use of hemp-derived CBD. She is also the former Head of Department for Amajuba District Anaesthesia Department, a current practicing specialist anaesthesiologist at Mediclinic, Chairperson of Hospital Clinical Performance Committee at Mediclinic, and Covid commander at Mediclinic. Both doctors have excelled in the production of safe Hemp-derived CBD for use as a health supplement. CBD is beneficial in several health issues such as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure, and diabetes. As well as, a popular general health and wellness supplement.

Due to both doctors’ dedication and hard work, they have formulated a Hemp-derived CBD supplement like no other. They are both involved from seed planting to dispensing, with all steps supervised. The Hemp seeds are planted and organically grown under the strong South African Sun by professional permitted master growers. All harvesting and processing are done by hand by local African Zulu women. Thus, providing income for their families. These women have excelled in the field of processing hemp. The biomass is extracted with food-grade ethanol and processed in ISO/CE certified machines to produce a pure Full Extract Hemp-Derived Cannabis Oil. This unique full-spectrum oil is quickly becoming a household supplement due to its many benefits. This extract differs from other CBD oils found for sale in local pharmacies in that this oil retains all the benefits nature has provided, the “whole whole-plan contains everything the hemp plant contains: CBD, Flavonoids, Fatty acids, Terpenes and other Cannabinoids with trace amounts of THC. All of these naturally occurring elements have their own important therapeutic value. Full-spectrum products are most beneficial due to the “Entourage Effect”. All the naturally occurring elements work together with your inherent biological system known as the “Endocannabinoid System” to “help your body heal itself”. Other CBD products contain pure CBD isolate- where all the naturally occurring beneficial elements have been removed.

Nature provides the Hemp plant with nutrients that will work together. Dr. Hurley and Dr. Jamaloodeen have harnessed this organic hemp product to its “Fullest in its” purest form. Everyone is entitled to add a health supplement to “help their body help itself”. Start healing today with locally grown, processed, and manufactured Hemp-derived CBD.
