ETST is focused on researching and developing innovative hemp extracts and to make them accessible for consumers worldwide in order to help with overall health and wellness. We are thrilled with the performance and results Dr. Fernandez is achieving as well as all the new positive studies and research with Dr. Wei Chen and the College of Mathematics and Science at the University of Central Oklahoma. It demonstrates that our CBD Rich Hemp Oil may help enhance a variety of things within the human body.
Dr. Eric Fernandez is currently a key management staff and sports athlete with the ETST wholly owned subsidiary, Nutrition Empire, located in Coral Gables, Florida. He was previously a manager with GNC as well as MPC and prior to that he graduated as a dentist in Havana in 2007. Dr. Fernandez has been training and body building for 15 years and is focused on Sports Nutrition for athletes and personal training. He is currently a sponsored athlete by Physique Enhancing Science (PEScience). He started competing as men physique on Florida States circuit winning two National Qualifier NPC shows which were Southern States and Tim Gardner Extravaganza and placed second on NPC Florida States.
Dr. Eric Fernandez stated, "I have been taking a new all natural and organic product named ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil to help enhance my training, workouts, bodybuilding and to supply my body overall health and wellness. It is very hard competing and I have the biggest show of my lifetime coming up which is the 2015 Arnold Classic. Since I have started taking ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil daily I have notice many benefits to my body, physique and overall wellness. I have notice that by taking the ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil daily, it actually physically & scientifically amplifies and enhances the overall delivery of other sports nutrition supplements. This also includes how my body is now able to absorb and transport higher rates of the other sports nutrition supplements that I take daily for working out, training and bodybuilding. I have been studying and researching CBD Rich Hemp Oil because there are so many benefits for one's internal health and overall wellness. ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil contains hundreds of micronutrients (phytonutrients). Modern science has identified over 400 phytonutrients in various parts of the industrial hemp plant from the seeds right through to the roots. These include hundreds of Terpenoids, Essential Oils and Antioxidants but perhaps the most dynamic are a group of 80 compounds called Cannabinoids that are exclusively found in Hemp and one other place; our bodies. ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil contains all the synergistic Cannabinoids, Terpenoids, Essential Oils and other compounds of the original plant. There are roughly 80 different phyto-cannabinoids, most prominently CBD, CBC, CBG, CBN, and most likely others yet to be effectively identified. In addition to the cannabinoids present in our industrial hemp oil extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phyto-chemical compounds such as amino acids, sugars, vitamins, fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, alcohols, glycosides, pigments, hemp seed oil, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our CBD oils are Beta-caryophyllene, Caryophyllene Oxide, Myrcene, Terpinolene, α Bisabolol, α Pinene, Nerolidol, Ocimene and Phytol. Hemp oil contains more essential fatty acids than any other plant."
Dr. Fernandez went on to say, "I feel very strong that CBD Rich Hemp Oil awareness today is where Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids were 15 to 20 years ago. CBD Rich Hemp Oil is posed to be the most renowned and effective natural compound and botanical alternative introduced to the nutritional and dietary supplement industry in decades. I believe we will see many new cutting edge supplements using CBD Rich Hemp Oil as an enhancer or ingredient as well as the proteins fibers, and anti-oxidant, anti-microbial substitutes derived from the seeds and stalks of industrial Hemp. There are many benefits I have been personally experiencing which include the quality of enhancing my immune response, accelerated and better recovery rates, better deeper sleep, less stress, more endurance during my training as well lubricating my joints and making them stronger. The longer I am on the product daily the stronger, healthier and more flexible I feel. I highly recommended ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil and feel it's just matter of time before it becomes a top leading product for the natural industry of supplements. I really like that ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil has the ability to protect against cellular damage and contains superior antioxidant activity. Cannabidiol's strong antioxidant properties have been shown to play a role in the compound's neuroprotective and anti-ischemic effects. I am even more impressed with the ability of the cannabinoids to cross the blood brain barrier and exert their antioxidant effects in the brain. Taking ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil has allowed me to be much more focused in the gym, enhanced my breathing while training, helped inflammation pre/post workout, makes it so I don't get cramps, my overall skin conditions have improved, function of organs seem to be operating better overall and my stress levels are at an all-time low going into my biggest competition of my life being the 2015 Arnold Classic. I would to note, there are many other positive things I feel while using ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil. More importantly, is that not only am I feeling these things but scientific data shows it helps regulate energy levels and balance, maintain blood glucose levels, stimulate insulin secretion, immune and inflammatory reactions, CBD suppresses muscles spasms and helps with my muscle relaxation. A muscle spasm is an involuntary contraction of a muscle and can be triggered by muscle strain, loss of electrolytes and dehydration. Hemp has over 65 unique cannabinoids and as more research and scientific data is becoming available more and more people are deciding to include natural cannabinoids in their daily diets. I am very happy to see that ETST is doing a lot of research, studies, tests and clinicals with the University of Central Oklahoma in regards to its ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil. Consumers worldwide desperately need more effective and safe botanical alternatives to help them with their overall health and internal wellness."
CEO of ETST, Dr. Harvey Katz commented, "The endocannabinoid system (ECS) has sown to control pain sensation, appetite, temperature regulation, stress reactivity, immune function, and sleep as well as other processes. Even more interesting is that muscle and fat tissue also utilize these receptors to control their processes. Consumers should think of the endocannabinoid system as one of the body's main control and command centers for tweaking your metabolism's ability to react and adapt to the world around it. I believe the ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil as well as the hundreds of micronutrients (phytonutrients) and 80 different phyto-cannabinoids found in our oil is working in harmony with Dr. Eric Fernandez's body's own endocannabinoid system making a positive effect in his workout healing and balance. Furthermore he has noticed a decrease in fat storage and increase in fat burning which several studies also indicate this to be the case with use of Cannabidiol. Because of this and other scientific data I believe ETST High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil can be used as a possible fat loss mechanism. Humans are designed with a built-in Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It is your body's way of communicating with itself and properly regulating the way every other body system functions from your brain to your toes. Like many other nutrients in our diet, Cannabinoids can become exhausted and in need of steady dietary replenishment."
ETST is in the business of manufacturing and marketing products which utilize the CBD component of hemp oil for overall health, wellness, nutritional and palliative purposes. ETST goal is to help consumers Worldwide with their overall health and wellness through advanced formulations with its CBD Rich Hemp Oil and cutting edge nutraceuticals and dietary supplements.
On October 9, 2014 ETST announced positive preliminary test results on the effects of ETST Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol on Animal Breast Cancer Cells and on Normal Cells. ETST had previously announced that the initial report from the Sponsored Research Agreement with the University of Central Oklahoma and its lead investigator Dr. Wei R. Chen showed the effects of its Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol (provided by Earth Science Tech, Inc.) on animal breast cancer cells and on normal cells. The results of this preliminary study indicate that with appropriate dose, in this case with ETST proprietary Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol dose, Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol can inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells more than that of normal cells. This purpose of the experiment with the University of Central Oklahoma and its lead investigator Dr. Wei R. Chen was to investigate the effects of ETST Hemp oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol on animal breast cancer cells and on normal cells. If Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol has the same effect in vivo, it may help with cancer patients. However, further experiments are needed to investigate the effects of Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD-Cannabidiol on different cells, particularly on immune cells. ETST recently entered Stage 2 of Research on its Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD (Cannabidiol) on immune cells.
On October 20, 2014, ETST secured a New Provisional Patent for "Hemp Oil Enriched With CBD (Cannabidiol)" Filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). ETST entered into an Assignment of Patent Application with Dr. Wei R. Chen for assignment of a patent pending under Application number 62061577 entitled "Cannabidols Composition and Uses Thereof." ETST has secured, and was assigned, this new patent for Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD (Cannabidiol) and Hemp Oil Enriched with Proprietary Additives.
On January 16, 2015 ETST secured a Ground Breaking Second Provisional Patent for its CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil Because of its Findings with the University of Central Oklahoma and the Effects of CBD on Immune Cells. Under the sponsorship of ETST, researchers at the University of Central Oklahoma have been investigating the effects of CBD on immune cells with ETST using the ETST CBD Rich Hemp Oil. ETST would like to let the market and its shareholders know that this new patent (Patent Name is "Cannabidiol Compositions and Uses 2," Serial No. 62102538) was filed because of the positive ETST new findings under its sponsorship with the University of Central Oklahoma (as shown in the above Immune cell report and effects of ETST CBD Rich Hemp Oil on Macrophages). These finding are breakthroughs in this field and are a result of the ETST new relationship with its international raw supplier of a higher quality CBD Rich Hemp Oil and its sponsorship with the University of Central Oklahoma. With these new studies and test results, ETST has 2 provisional patents and inventions with its CBD Rich Hemp Oil (patent Serial No. 62102538 and patent Serial No. 62061577). Additionally, ETST has a total of ten (10) new claims for its Hemp Oil Enriched with CBD (Cannabidiol) and Hemp Oil Enriched with Proprietary Additives. Partial Abstract of new Patent Serial No. 62102538: A composition having cannabidiol, alone, or as a component of hemp oil, for use in treating or preventing cancer. The composition may include D-limonene, which contributes synergistically to the anticancer efficacy of the composition.
On January 26, 2015 ETST announced Positive Test Results of its Product CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil; In Collaboration with the University of Central Oklahoma, Test Results Demonstrate that CBD Rich Hemp Oil Enhances Immune Function. The results of this preliminary study indicate that with appropriate CBD concentrations, hemp oil can stimulate macrophages to produce TNF α (Figure 1) and can also enhance the TNF α production stimulated by LPS (Figure 2). The effects of CBD Rich hemp oil on immune cells may be used to improve cancer treatment. However, further experiments, particularly in vivo studies, are needed to determine the effects of CBD Rich Hemp Oil on inducing and enhancing anti-tumor immune responses. ETST received the results from the Sponsored Research Agreement with the University of Central Oklahoma, a public institution of higher education, showing the effects of its CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil (provided by Earth Science Tech, Inc.) on immune cells. The study illustrated that ETST CBD Rich Hemp was capable of Stimulating and Enhancing Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNFα) Production by Macrophages. Under the sponsorship of Earth Science Tech (ETST), researchers at the University of Central Oklahoma have been investigating the effects of CBD on immune cells with ETST using the ETST CBD Rich Hemp Oil. Led by lead investigator Dr. Wei R. Chen, the team found that ETST hemp oil solution used in appropriate CBD concentrations could stimulate macrophages, an important immune cell, through the production of TNF α. The cytokine TNF α is a key cell signaler in the recruitment of immune cells. Maintaining a healthy immune system is key in health and may help in the fight of cancer. Furthermore, they also found that the CBD was capable of enhancing TNF α production by macrophages initiated by other compounds. Dr. Chen's team believes that the effects of hemp oil enriched with CBD on immune cells may be used to improve cancer treatment, particularly in combination with other treatment modalities. In collaboration with Dr. Chen, ETST plans continued studies to determine the effects of hemp oil with CBD on inducing and enhancing anti-tumor immune responses.
Once again, ETST would like to thank Dr. Wei Chen and the College of Mathematics and Science at the University of Central Oklahoma for these recent reports, research, studies, tests and clinicals on the effects of ETST CBD Rich Hemp Oil.

This also includes being tested for CBD content, other Cannabinoid content, yeast/mold/fungus, and bacteria like E. coli to ensure safety and top quality. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of the hemp plant (seed, stem and stalk). It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp (cannabis), and is commonly used as a dietary supplement to support general health, immune system support, nervous system and much more. Research shows that many scientists and doctors think the cannabinoids work synergistically to support the whole human endo-cannabinoid system (internal and natural human cannabinoid system). Furthermore, many scientists and doctors believe the endo-cannabinoid system plays a fundamental role in the functioning of many of the major human physiological systems, including the immune and nervous systems. Hemp oil contains CBD -- a non-psychoactive compound of the plant. There are millions of hemp oil consumers around the world and this number is rapidly rising with an increasing number of reports and studies showing a variety of benefits of hemp oil.
