Should you turn to CBD for your sleeping issues? — January 1, 2019

Should you turn to CBD for your sleeping issues?

Everybody feels sleepy or, on the contrary, too energetic to fall asleep when the night has come. So you get into bed after you took a well-deserved bath. Your sheets are clean and the fresh smell of lavender coming from your laundry balm are the perfect conditions to help you get that so-needed sleep, after a hard working day. You fully stretch your body and you close your eyes, but what do you know? This is the moment your brain feels like it just woke up. You start to think about all the stuff you did during the day, during the last week, the last month and so on and so forth.

What is this? , you are asking yourself. Why is it that you simply cannot fall asleep? You have created the perfect environment for this to happen, so why are you still not sleeping? Well, the causes are various, starting from certain health issues you might be dealing with and which you have no idea about. Or you are simply passing through a stressful period in your life, which most likely leaves deep marks on the way your functioning system activates.

Ever thought about giving cannabis a try? More specifically, giving CBD a try? This chemical substance existing in some cannabis plant strains is firmly believed to have remarkable effects on supporting your body to better manage sleeping hours. I feel the need to set the record straight: CBD is the nonpsychoactive compound of the marijuana plant and so you do not have to worry about getting any of the high effects other strains might give you. THC, another important compound of this plant, is the one responsible for making you feel like you have been basically sedated.


How the two interact?


Many times, curious beginners in this whole cannabis consumption thing, have required more detail on the fact regarding how these two somehow opposite compounds interact. Considering the fact that one is non-psychoactive and the other is fully psychoactive, so to say, one can easily get the idea, right? Well, nothing to judge about that, but we need to also consider the amounts, which can significantly change the effects your body might feel.

In fact, science has revealed that CBD might have a thing or two to say about the effects that THC brings along. This means that the feeling you get after administering THC to your body can be very well controlled by certain CBD rates.

One study worth mentioning in this respect is the one focusing on how various amounts of these two marijuana compounds affected 8 young individuals. Researchers concentrated their whole work on observing how the human body reacts when it is administered various rates of combination between THC and CBD. The results they came to reveal how both cannabis compounds, in the highest dosages of 15 mg each, provided higher energy levels.

This immediately determined researchers to think about how the known sedative effect of THC can be decreased when CBD is added to the equation. Moreover, the study also suggested that low rates of CBD added to certain higher THC amounts made the patients go through the first phase of deep sleep. Anyone can easily figure out that by changing the CBD dosages in combination with THC, can lead to different effects on the human body.



Give up insomnia with high CBD amounts


Insomnia is quite an unpleasant experience to deal with, considering the fact that it is strongly affecting the way we rest our functioning systems. It is extremely important to have a healthy sleep during the night, as this is the time where your whole body kind of gives itself a sort of restart so that the next day it can work at its fullest potential.

The effects that CBD can have on insomniacs have been analyzed far long ago and we are talking about the year 1981, as the first moment when researchers focused on observing how this marijuana compound can influence insomnia.

The study was carried out with human patients and this should strongly deepen the veracity of the results researchers within this study came to. The individuals taking part in this experiment were administered various dosages of this nonpsychoactive cannabis compound and the results were in favor of CBD, as you might have already guessed.

In fact, it seems that the highest CBD dosage, of 160 mg was the one to accurately reveal how this chemical substance works on insomnia. Patients receiving this CBD amount stated that they were able to get a good night’s sleep, without any breaks or without waking up during the night.


Different effects with CBD


When you decide to give CBD a try for helping you solve your sleeping issues, you need to fully established what you really want this chemical substance to do for you. This is important because CBD, on its own, like being solely extracted from the cannabis plant, in certain amounts, can differently influence your sleeping times, in comparison with what a cannabis strain with high CBD rates can do for you.

Apart from consisting of high CBD amounts, such a cannabis plant also produces other substances, known as terpenes, the flavoring molecules. This is how your cannabis plant produces its specific smell and taste. Over the years, researchers have found out that certain such terpenes can have quite the relaxing effect on muscle tissues. So you can now understand how a cannabis plant, specific for its high CBD rate, can basically sedate you. Not to mention that if the plant also contains some worth mentioning THC amounts, you can figure out for yourself how you might feel after consuming it.

CBD Liquid vs Tincture – Know What’s Best For You — December 25, 2018

CBD Liquid vs Tincture – Know What’s Best For You

mario-dub-cbdMany times people felt confused on what would be the best way of administering CBD to your body. Specialists do not have a standard answer to this question, as each human body is bound to react differently to certain oils, tinctures, or vaping liquids. The general idea is that you need to fully be aware of the fact that there are some differences in how this chemical substance will influence your system’s activity. Therefore, depending on what your general health state is and what are your specific needs, you can choose either ingesting or vaping your CBD.

However, no matter what method you would turn to, there were some voices who stated that there is not much of a difference between those vaping liquids you use with your vaping pens and those CBD tinctures, as both seem to have kind of the same consistency and of course, some significant CBD amount in them. But is this true? Could you ingest a CBD vaping liquid, hoping to get the same effects as when you take your tincture?


The ingredients are the answer


Anybody with a little sense in their head would easily figure out that all this is resumed to the ingredients’ list. Even though both, the e-liquid and the tincture, contain high amounts of CBD, there are certain other comprising elements which make the whole difference.

When choosing to go for the vaping experience, as an alternative to administering CBD to your body’s system, you definitely need to go through the ingredients’ list. It is not only a matter of observing the differences between a vaping liquid and a tincture, but it is also something which has to do with going for the best product for your body’s needs.

In the majority of cases, a CBD vaping liquid will bring forward more than just your non-psychoactive amount of substance. You will also get glycerin if you are lucky the vegetable type, propylene glycol, and some natural flavors, as they say. So these could sound safe and sound for you to ingest them, right? I mean with a little research you can see for yourself that nothing toxic is going on in here. Therefore, why not give it a taste?

Well, even though in theory you could very easily give your liver some of this CBD vaping liquid, specialists highly recommend not to. The issue stands in the fact that one of the ingredients is considered to have some quite negative interactions with your guts and that is the propylene glycol. It seems that this substance, even though it is highly praised as having nothing to do with any toxicity, some recent studies have revealed exactly the opposite.

Even though there is still need for further work towards this respect, as some might consider it to be just a scam put together by “the opposition” of such vaping liquids brands, you could still take it into account as a warning. If it is made for vaping your CBD, why ingest it? Just let it do what it is supposed to do, right?


Oily tinctures do not go with your vaping pen


In comparison with the CBD vaping liquid, any tincture can be recognized by its somehow different consistency. It is not the same as an oil’s one, but considering the fact that it is made from a CBD oil, you get the picture. Some people seemed very confused through their online feedbacks, as they just could not wrap their minds around the fact that tinctures are not suitable for vaping.


Even though the consistency seems the same as the one of a CBD vaping liquid, well it actually isn’t. The thing is that such a substance, the CBD tincture that is, once exposed to high temperatures will not only change its chemical structure, but it will also not completely heat, in terms of releasing enough vapors for you to inhale.

So it is kind of like wasting precious CBD substance just for the sake of proving that tinctures can also be vaped. A CBD tincture is thought to be provided for the body through ingestion, that means you have to either swallow it or add it to some of your foods. By attempting to vape your tincture will definitely damage your pen and so more money to throw on the window.


Carefully choose your information



Never let yourself manipulated by the numerous online “voices” who claim to possess the truth. Just do a search on Google and you will find all sorts of stories coming from potential real individuals who have achieved “great” results after ingesting CBD vaping liquid. One simply cannot go for such gibberish, as scientific studies are starting to back up more and more the fact that that propylene glycol added to the e-liquids can seriously damage your body’s tissues. Some even stated that it can also cause some negative effects on your lungs through vaping it, but these seem to be only some rumors, for the moment.

Cannabidiol, this remarkable marijuana compound, is indeed a great alternative when traditional health recovery therapies seem to not work. However, whether you choose to ingest it or vape it, you do need to have a clear image of every single impact this substance can have on your body. That is why it would be extremely wise of you to let the vaping liquid to its thing and the CBD tincture, as well.

Maybe you want to experiment a little, maybe you do not have your tincture, but you have your vaping liquid, try not to mingle them. Each is thought to be good towards helping you to achieve a certain CBD amount, through a certain method. So just let them be!

Would You Trust CBD Products? — September 10, 2018

Would You Trust CBD Products?

The cannabis market has developed in such a fast way it’s no wonder why we can find all sorts of CBD products, such oils, tinctures, pills, gel capsules, and even gummies. Yes, you read it correctly: gummies. Does this sound a little weird to you? Well, it should not because it seems that the online platform is quite amazed by this product, at least this is what some feedbacks on this matter show.

One particular product that has caught a significant rate of interest these days is Awesome CBD gummy, a product which seems to be easy to handle, easy to take and easy to keep. The gummies are packed in a little cardboard box like mint gums are. However, would you spend your money on this thinking that you could get your CBD intake that your body needs?


CBD with a little flavor


This product, like many others being available on the present cannabis market, brings forward a whole other tasting experience, because you get the chance to provide the necessary CBD rate for your system, with a pinch of flavor in it. This particular product we mentioned earlier comes with a peach flavor, and the manufacturers say that this has nothing to do with any artificial additives or other such doubtful ingredients.

But how could one tell if such products are ok to be administered to the body because no flavoring adding process is nowhere near as being all natural and safe? This means that you cannot get positive benefits out of a flavored adding product, right? This is even more intriguing because we are talking about CBD, a healthy and health aiding marijuana compound, praised all over the world as being the revolutionary alternative for traditional prescribed drugs. Why dirt such a pure and natural health ally with a peach flavor?

Indeed, not everybody can cope with the taste, but eventually, after several servings, you can get used to it. I mean, if you genuinely wish to provide for your body a natural and safe substance, you could very well get over the taste, which is not that bad, in the end. Bringing forward the flavor factor is quite the marketing strategy, and this is something to make you think about whenever you are considering such CBD gums as a form of getting your nonpsychoactive compound intake.


Does chewing CBD can work for you?


cbd cherry chemistryWell, opinions are quite varied in this respect because you can find a whole range of feedbacks regarding CBD gums. Some people believe that it is the best alternative of administering CBD to the body, especially considering all the flavors that some brands offer. On the other hand, some clients are blaming manufacturers because the process through which gum is made has nothing to do with a healthy activity in which the body can take part.

Some studies show that while you chew gum, hence a CBD gum, you get to inhale excessive air amounts which can lead to abdominal pains and bloating. When you buy your CBD gums, you are planning to take them daily, as to get the best there is out of CBD, right? Daily chewing gum can also exploit your maxillary, and in time, through over solicitation in digestion, you can get teeth pains, headaches, and even ear ones. So, as one can easily observe, there are some aspects to be beard in mind when you are considering trying CBD gums.


What to expect from a CBD gum product?


Well, it does sound quite tempting to get your CBD intake from just chewing gum, right? Moreover, if it comes with a sweet peach flavor, you are a winner! But is it safe to daily chew and chew such gum?

Manufacturers of Awesome CBD gummy claim that you will notice the effects depending on how your body works, with its metabolism and

overall functioning processes taking place within your body. Therefore, it seems that there is not a standard time to say when you will get to feel the benefits. You chew your gum, and then you throw it when the fruity flavor is no longer intense, right? You cannot chew the same gum for a whole day, right?

So when do the effects show up? Well, we cannot tell and neither the manufacturers of the product we mentioned in the previous lines, but one thing is sure: once the effects kick in, depending on how you function and on how many gums you chewed, you will get to experience them for a period lasting between 2 and 8 hours.


How many gums are enough?


Because no standard amount is recommended by any scientific study carried out up until this moment, we would never say that it is up to you to decide how much you need. This is something that only a specialist can guide through, as your body has its specific way of functioning and so you need a specific amount of CBD. The majority of such products, like Awesome CBD gummy, are not FDA approved so this means that no dosage recommendation is valid coming from their manufacturers.

In fact, CBD gums should be seen only as a form of administering this non-psychoactive substance to your body, taking the whole range of risks and effects that this decision might bring along in time. It does indeed sound quite simple to chew gum and get your CBD intake, but always think of your whole health state, not only focusing on getting the substance into your system. It is essential to choose the best method of giving your body CBD, according to your needs and specific functioning activity of your whole body.

Why CBD is better than antipsychotic meds — February 23, 2018

Why CBD is better than antipsychotic meds

CBD, the cannabidiol found in the cannabis plant, has been proven to have so many health benefits that in the past few years a sort of avalanche of products containing it has taken charge of the medication market. People have at their disposal pills, soft gels and even oils consisting of this chemical substance and the feedbacks are mostly positive.

In fact, people are so excited about this new discovery within the medical field that the request for such products is higher and higher with each year that passes. As one can easily imagine, there are many companies that are taking full advantage of this high requirement and so certain businesses have been carried out. It is not necessarily a bad thing, but the fact that some of these products’ quality is sometimes questionable should make us choose them more carefully.

So CBD was mentioned earlier…ever heard about it? Well, you should know that it is a compound found in the cannabis plant and it has nothing to do with giving you any high feelings or other such effects. In other words, cannabidiol is the nonpsychoactive ingredient and experts say that it has a huge medical potential.


More effective than antipsychotic medication


psychotic-look-manScience is constantly developing so there is no wonder how we are hit with new discoveries almost daily. The same is valid for cannabis because researchers are permanently analyzing it and experimenting with it, as it is considered to have great potential. In recent studies, researchers were able to conclude that CBD, the nonpsychoactive compound found in cannabis can easily replace traditional antipsychotic medication, by bringing even higher effectiveness in the recovery process.

Moreover, scientists state that this chemical marijuana’s compound, CBD, could be far more effective than the top medication used in treatments aiming to cure psychotic disturbances, such as schizophrenia. This mental disease was mentioned because it represents one of the worst mental disorders there is and this should make you reconsider judging the cannabis plant, as it has the potential to support patients dealing with it.


Abnormal functioning system in schizophrenia


Everybody is familiar with what schizophrenia is all about, but nobody can actually relate to what this mental disorder brings along if they haven’t experienced it, either personally or as witnessing it. This mental disturbance affects many areas of the brain, depending on how severe it is. For instance, people dealing with schizophrenia have hallucinations and paranoia crisis due to certain imbalances taking place in their basal ganglia. Also, it is quite common for such patients to experience difficulties in organizing themselves and solving problems.

When hearing about the positive association between schizophrenia and cannabis, most people rapidly jump to conclusions that it might just another marketing scam aiming to sell some anonymous products. Well, things are not like this because researchers are hardly working to bring more and more evidence that one particular compound found in cannabis can greatly work on schizophrenic patients.


CBD can be a great psychotic ally


The active compound found in the cannabis plant is called THC and this has the capacity of inducing various mental imbalances for some individuals. Actually, for people who already experience such mental disorders, it makes all the sense that they should definitely not turn to such a substance’s consumption.

However, researchers focused on another cannabis’ compound, called CBD, the cannabidiol previously mentioned in this article. It seems that this nonpsychoactive substance has the capacity of basically inhibiting the THC effects and it also might have some quite important antipsychotic benefits.

One of the most recent studies reveals that researchers have evaluated more than 66 previous studies regarding the way CBD can work for the nervous system. The results they got were pretty amazing considering the fact that CBD seems to provide a whole range of advantages in comparison with the limiting possibilities offered by traditional medication.


Science says it all


cat-in-trhe-showsIn comparison with the great majority of medication aiming to support the recovery in schizophrenia patients, CBD seems to not bring along any side effects and no dosage can become lethal. Due to the fact that it is in the nature of the human being to question everything, researchers have brought forward evidence to back up the great health benefits that CBD can have on the human body.

One of the most important studies to emphasize this was carried out in 2012 and it involved 39 schizophrenic patients. 20 of them were administered CBD, while the rest of 19 got a traditional medication frequently used in this disease’s treatment.

After four whole weeks of therapy, those who followed the CBD treatment have shown the same recovery levels as those who followed the traditional treatment. What was most important in their discoveries was that no hormonal disturbances took place, such as gaining weight, which is a common side effect brought along by traditional schizophrenic medication.

This is just one of the many studies to back up the great potential that CBD has and everybody deserves to know more about it. Not only that it represents a cheaper alternative to traditional quite expensive medication, but it is also side effects- free. What more could you ask for? We have at our disposal such a great natural remedy, so why not take full advantage of it? Why not make room for it in our lives?

Are Cannabinoids number one remedy? — January 25, 2018

Are Cannabinoids number one remedy?

“Phoenix Tears”, having their headquarters in Colorado, is a foundation which brings together experts dealing with cannabinoids research. One of their main goals is to somehow figure out standardized treatments for certain patients struggling with various types of cancer. Along with this foundation stands the NGO “Patient out of time”, which comprises doctors and patients who have been trying for several years now to promote cannabis’ usage in medical therapies, so that all diseased individuals can have complete access to cannabinoids’ treatments.

Their struggle of proving people that these chemical substances, which nature puts to our disposal, are effective for the human body’s health, is constant and they are permanently bringing forward tons of real cases involving patients who have successfully treated themselves with the help of CBD oil.


The truth can no longer be hidden


In the beginnings, CBD oil has been processed as an alternative to traditional smoking and it was thought to represent a safe and healthy method of consuming cannabis, medically speaking. Some people were already using it so that, at some point, people were able to notice the great potential that this oil has for restoring our body’s balance.

A great example is the story of Rick Simpson, who was diagnosed with skin cancer back in 2002. After he turned to surgical treatments, he decided to give this oil a try due to the several studies he was aware of, which praised cannabis oil as having what it takes to basically destroy cancerous cells. The whole idea on which he based his decision of also trying this treatment had to do with the fact that researchers proved through the studies they carried out that THC, the psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, represents a revolutionary cancerous cells’ enemy. Rick Simpson was basically blown away by the results he got, considering the fact that his skin cancer was treated in just 4 days.

Unfortunately, the medical field was not very impressed with his experience because doctors who were contacted by Rick in order to make his discovery known simply rejected this whole cannabis treatment idea. One would think that every single doctor living on this planet would want to be aware of a cure for cancer, but it seems that things did not go as planned by Rick. The whole mechanism that the medical field applies is quite simple to be understood by anybody: cannabis oil is really forthcoming and this would lead to less medical consultations and so many medical clinics would simply burst-up.



Cannabis oil can cure many types of health disorders


cbd-vaping-penFor more than six years, Rick Simpson got to be known as “a miracle healer” because during this whole period of time he offered free amounts of this oil for those people who really needed it. Unfortunately, some “very well-intentioned” individuals announced the Canada police and so his plants were seized. Therefore he decided to continue making this plant more popular because all the studies which he lay his hands on were like real “gold” and more people deserve to know about this substance health benefits, many times he stated.

The thing is that after witnessing several successful cannabis treatments, Rick was able to notice how this plant can indeed work on various types of diseases. So, a lot of improvement was actually noticed in diabetes, various cardiovascular diseases, multiple sclerosis, disturbances in the immune system, various types of pain, mental disorders and many more. In fact, at some point, he was wondering if there are any diseases which cannot be treated with cannabis oil.

This man has been many times praised as that one particular individual who should be seen as an example of normality in such health-related cases. In comparison with other “impostors”, Rick has never based his activity towards making money. Actually, he lost huge amounts of money during the period when he offered free amounts of CBD oil to patients in need of it and so it would not be fair at all to blame him in some way or another.

His main goal, along with other foundations that have clung to his idea, is to let people know more about this plant and all the health benefits that it can bring along. The world needs to open their eyes and actually understand that nature has given us a remarkable plant which can be processed in many ways so that cheaper and more effective treatments can be carried out, no risks included.


Summing it all up


The main idea to be beard in mind is that more and more people need to have at their disposal all the information regarding how their health can indeed benefit from all this plant’s properties. We need to not let certain political interests stop us from healing our bodies without any of the expensive and, many times, not efficient, traditional treatments.

The medical field should constantly develop and so doctors should be the ones to permanently let their patients know about other curing alternatives, especially when the traditional ones seem to not work at all. It is all about helping people in need and when severe diseases are involved, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis or even diabetes, there is no need to waste any more time in nurturing certain personal interests.

The human body can be greatly healed with the help of this plant and if you do not live in an area where authorities allow this information to be spread, you need to study on your own and so give the cannabis oil, hence CBD oil, the chance to help you restore your functioning system’s balance.
