If you ever had a question about CBDs??

CBD’S Are only as good as what they are suspended in!!

CBD’s are lipids, (they cannot be suspended in a water-soluble without changing the molecular structure). So it only stands to reason companies would use fat/glycerin as a carrier for the CANNABIDIOL.

STOP THE MADNESS! Be informed, Ask Questions

1.) SOLUBLES such as glycerin, MCT OIL (Medium Chain Triglycerides )and other fatty oils can and will exacerbate patient symptoms!! *Patient diagnosis such as Diabetes, Cancer, Gene Mutation, Epilepsy and other seizure disorders have cells that thrive on fat and sugar and allow them to split and divide on a much stronger and faster level!

LOOK FOR CBD PRODUCTS THAT ARE SUSPENDED IN PURE PROTEIN! This will ensure safe dosing for any patient with dietary restrictions

2.) BEWARE OF MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON LABELING!

Cannabinoid And Cannabidiol Are Not The Same. Know The Difference Because This Matters. If the label says “Product contains 500mg” Ask 500 mg of WHAT? Look for specificity on ingredients. If it doesn’t say “500 mg of PURE CBD” chances are you are getting 500mg of CANNABINOID NOT CANNABIDIOL, which is what patients seek and comes from the Medicinal Part Of The Cannabis Plant.

3.) BEWARE OF FLAVOR ARTIFICE!

Companies want to SELL, SELL, SELL, some at no matter to the patient. Beware of products that have artificial flavoring extracted from alcohol. For example; cinnamon or peppermint. The burning sensation under the tongue does not allow the patient to sustain for maximum benefit. Thus resulting in less absorption of CBD into the system and decreased relief for the patient. Look for a product that is ALL NATURAL! NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORING OR SWEETENERS!! (Vegan-friendly is best)

4.) EXTRACTION REACTION!

Find a company that spares no expense for clean extraction. (critical CO2 for example). Many companies use ALCOHOL, BUTANE, ETHER, EVERCLEAR and other harsh chemicals to extract the maximum CBD for the least amount of money. Trace amounts of chemicals remain in the product. ANY amount of ETHER in your system is too much. These are poisons and chemicals not meant for human ingestion.

How Does CBD Work In The Body

The human body is a complex machine, and the way it interacts with any compound, including Cannabidiol (CBD) can be even more so. We’ve only known about the system in our body that cannabinoids are part of since the 1990’s so there is definitely so much more to learn! Nonetheless, here some of the basic science we do know.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 60 compounds found in hemp and marijuana. It’s the second most prevalent compound (second only to THC) in cannabis. CBD belongs to a class of molecules called phyto-cannabinoids and isnon-psychoactive.This is the part of the plant that keeps you healthy, not high.

So how does CBD actually work in our body?

When someone takes CBD, the compound goes into your system and to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is made up of receptors throughout the body and brain.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a very interesting and varied role within the body. At its most basic, the endocannabinoid system is a huge network of cannabinoid receptors which are spread through the body. The human endocannabinoid system releases cannabinoids that interact with receptors found in virtually all of the tissues in our bodies. You can also take in phyto-cannabinoids (CBD) in addition to those compounds that your body produces to help boost this system. The role of the endocannabinoid system is to bring balance to our tissues, including the heart, digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems. In short, it’s working to keep you in neutral. Neutral means different things in different areas of your body, which is possibly one of the very best things about the compound – it can have a different impact on different receptors in your body.

Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the human body embedded in the cell membranes that are responsible for regulating multiple processes that we experience daily including mood, appetite, memory and pain sensation. When they’re activated, it can be by naturally occurring endocannabinoids, as well as by the phyto-cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis. There are two major cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2 (Researchers speculate there may be a third cannabinoid receptor waiting to be discovered.) CB1 receptors are concentrated in the brain and central nervous system but also sparsely populate other parts of our bodies. CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs especially cells associated with the immune system.

With this endocannabinoid system in place, it seems that we are biologically designed to make use of the cannabis plant.

Are CBD Hemp Extracts Legal In All 50 States?

Domestically grown CBD oil extracted from hemp was legalized by the federal government as part of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, 2014. Properly imported CBD oil from hemp was confirmed as federally legal by the 9th circuit court in 2004. The only caveat in both of these is that the hemp must contain less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. As marijuana and hemp are both cannabis plants, the amount of Tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) is the primary factor that differentiates the two.

What Is Industrial Hemp?

So what exactly is Industrial Hemp? For most people, the first thought which comes to mind when someone mentions “industrial hemp” to them is – marijuana. But, industrial hemp is very different from marijuana, specifically in terms of the potential to get someone “high”, as it contains very small amounts of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC – the psychoactive chemical).

Hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa and is of the same plant species as marijuana, yet , hemp is genetically different and distinguished by use and chemical compound makeup. The Industrial Hemp Program registers growers of hemp and samples the crop to verify that the THC concentration does not exceed 0.3% on dry weight basis, while Cannabis grown for marijuana can contain anywhere from 6 or 7 % to 20% or even more. That’s the long answer on the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana. The short answer is that you could consume a field of organic hemp and wouldn’t be high.

So, if it’s not psychoactive, what exactly is hemp used for? Ever since the Neolithic Age when farmers in China first cultivated this plant, the use of hemp grew in order to fulfill many different needs people had through history. It is now used to make clothing, biofuels, foods, health products, body care products and even plastic composites. One source suggests that this “magical plant” is currently used to create more than 25 thousand different products – as many as petroleum. The U.S. hemp industry was estimated to be worth around 500 million USD in annual retail sales in 2012, and this number is quickly trending upward, according to Hemp Industries Association.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular amongst the masses for having a wide scope of benefits – due to clinical reports and mounds of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psychoactivity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC).

Cannabidiol (CBD) is not only a major phytocannabinoid, it is the most concentrated form from the three main cannabis plants. The three main forms to use cannabis are Hashish, Resin, & Oil.

Differences & Similarities Between Endocannabinoids and Phytocannabinoids

The complexity of cannabis can be overwhelming. Its many components and the variety of benefits users can experience is in-depth. Although people often associate cannabis with THC and/or CBD, there’s much more to the plant.

How our body processes CBD or other cannabinoids is where the magic lies.

Phytocannabinoids are naturally-occurring and concentrated in the oil resin of the cannabis leaves and buds. Whereas, endocannabinoids are cannabinoids that our bodies produce internally.

Endo= body

Phyto= plant

Explanation of Phyto-cannabinoids:

The cannabis plant and other plants produce cannabinoids, which interact with our body’s receptors. These plant cannabinoids are known as phyto-cannabinoids. Phyto is a prefix that means “pertaining to derived from plants”. They are categorized as any plant-derived natural product with the capability to directly interact with the body’s cannabinoid receptors or share chemical similarity with cannabinoids.

Furthermore, phytocannabinoids from cannabis have significantly influenced research on the endocannabinoid system. So far, phytocannabinoids like THCA, CBD, and CBN have become widely known for their medicinal properties in recent years. In particular, the cannabis plant contains over 400 chemical entities, and more than 60 of them are cannabinoid compounds, which have varying effects.

Moreover, phytocannabinoids are just one of the cannabis plants’ active ingredients. Some would say that phytocannabinoids are known as the main cornerstone of your cannabis’ effects. Aside from the most well-known cannabinoids, THC and CBD, there are other major phytocannabinoids. These include but not limited to; THCA, CBDA, CBN, CBG, CBC, and THCV.

Importance of Finding the Right Phytocannabinoids For You:

As compared to other medicine and forms of cannabis, trial and error is often necessary to find out which phytocannabinoid(s) are the best for you and your specific condition. However, the only way to know the exact phytocannabinoid content of your medicine is to have it lab tested. Unfortunately, though, cannabis lab testing is underutilized and under-regulated. Regardless, lab-tested products are a critical and essential part of consuming your desired medicine.

Linkage Between The Endocannabinoid System, Endocannabinoids, and Phytocannabinoids:

Everybody has an endocannabinoid system, and this system has three basic components. The system includes the endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and hydrolytic enzymes that break down the endocannabinoids. In general, cannabinoids are classified as molecules produced by cells that contain activity similar to THC and other phyto-cannabinoids. Surprisingly, endocannabinoids are not only found in human bodies, but in animal bodies as well.

Throughout every human body, endocannabinoids and their receptors, such as CB1 and CB2, are found within our brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. Additionally, endocannabinoids are found at the intersection of the body’s various systems. This allows for communication and coordination between different cell types.

Both endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids act with CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. It has been discovered that a functional endocannabinoid system is essential for our health and well-being.

The Influence Endocannabinoids and Phytocannabinoids Have On Our Lives:

To some people’s surprise, endocannabinoids are able to influence an individuals’ relationship with their external environment. For example, phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids can alter human behavior through promoting humor, creativity, and sharing. Endocannabinoids could even directly influence an individuals’ open-mindedness and ability to move beyond initial limiting thought patterns and behavior from previous situations.

On a similar note, it has been found that small doses of cannabinoids, like CBD, can signal the body to produce additional Endocannabinoid and cannabinoid receptors.

The Role Phytocannabinoids Play:

Have pain?

You might have a deficiency in cannabinoids. When you experience pain where you shouldn’t, you have a cannabinoid deficiency. By providing your body and endocannabinoid system with phytocannabinoids, you can help to restore the system and body to optimal health.

Phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids go hand-in-hand.

Cannabinoid Deficiency

We know the wide variety of effects that cannabis help but what relevance do these cannabinoids have with our body? Cannabinoid deficiency might explain how our endocannabinoid system impacts our health.

The theory of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency explains; if you do not have enough endocannabinoids you have pain where there shouldn’t be pain. You develop a cannabinoid deficiency when our bodies do not have enough endocannabinoids.

The Endocannabinoid Sytem

Endocannabinoid System Balance

Many of us realise the important of balance in our lives. Balancing work and play is critical for physical and mental health. Nutritional scientists have shown that balancing Omega-6 fats (which are generally, but not always, pro-inflammatory and therefore considered the bad guys) with Omega-3 fats (the good guys) can impact a multitude of health outcomes. For example, replacing Omega-6 rich processed foods (e.g., French Fries, potato chips, and pastries) with Omega-3 rich healthy alternatives (e.g., salmon steak, sardines and fresh leafy vegetables) improves cardiovascular health, brain health and metabolic wellness. A similar analogy can be used when discussing endocannabinoids (first defined in 1995 as 'endogenous substances capable of binding to and functionally activating the cannabinoid receptors') and endocannabinoid tone/balance.

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The ECS is a group of specialised lipids (an important part of living cells, together with carbohydrates and proteins, the main constituents of plant and animal cells; cholesterol and triglycerides are lipids), their receptors and the enzymes (catalysts for organic biochemical reactions) that produce and degrade them. Through direct and indirect actions, endocannabinoids are known to modulate and influence a variety of physiological systems, including appetite, pain and inflammation, thermo-regulation, intra-ocular pressure, sensation, muscle control, energy balance, metabolism, sleep health, stress responses, motivation/reward, mood and memory.

The Benefits of CBD

The Benefits of CBD

As you can see from above, the cannabinoid receptors and other enzymes are involved in an increasing number of pathological conditions. When we are feeling stressed and run down or we are experiencing less than ideal sleep patterns, our system is out of balance. Unfortunately, some of us know too well how things like sleep, anxiety, pain and stress are all tied to one another. When one thing like anxiety is present, so too is insomnia or chronic pain. This is were CBD can help to restore the balance. As more and more research emerges, it is thought we will find even more benefits to supplementing with CBD oil. Though individual results may vary, here is an overview of how CBD can be helpful for the following:

benifits

• Anxiety relief
• Pain relief
• Stress Management
• Improving symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• Helping improve sleep
• Anti-seizure
• Immune health
• Acts as a neuroprotective (which is important for the following conditions: Alzheimer’s
disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease)
• Anti-acne
• Weight loss

CBD is safe for the whole family and the latest research continues to validate this fact. Unlike synthetic pharmaceuticals, there are no safety issues to cause concern when taking CBDs.
