Who can benefit from CBD?

The World Anti Doping Agency announced on the September 2017, that CBD (Cannabidiol) will no longer be banned from use, effective January 1st, 2018. 

In June 2018 the U.S. Senate Votes To Legalize Hemp After Decades-Long Ban Under Marijuana Prohibition

We believe that everyone can benefit from CBD! Now, with the ability to embark on a journey of research and science, the medicinal benefits of CBD are more sought out than ever! Cannabinoids promote neuroplasticity and mediate homeostasis through various bidirectional pathways. Everyone should have the right to consume a powerful and naturally occurring substance like cannabis.

The American Epilepsy Society has confirmed that CBD stops epileptic seizures. A study titled, “Efficacy and Safety of Epidiolex (Cannabidiol) in Children and Young Adults With Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy,” found that cannabidiol (CBD) was effective in reducing both the frequency and severity of seizures in both children and adults.

The study began in 2014 with children from epilepsy treatment centers nationwide. The leaders of the study have been outspoken about its findings. Elizabeth A. Thiele, M.D., Ph.D., a lead author of the study talked about the study’s findings at a press release.

“For many children with treatment-resistant Dravet syndrom, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and other epilepsies, CBD appears to be an effective – sometimes extremely effective – treatment that is safe and well-tolerated overall,” Thiele stated.

Adding, “It is not a silver bullet, but there are children who benefit from this more than they have from other treatments.”

Anyone who has trained in an endurance sport knows how hard the aftermath can be.  Intense workouts, not only impacts your muscles, but creates pain, and can also affects your immune system.

When you exercise, your body naturally produces a number of chemicals called endorphins and neurotransmitters known as Anandamide. Anandamide, (including 2-AG) is classified as an endocannabinoid, confirming that “natural” cannabinoids are produced by the body. When anandamide binds to a cannabinoid receptor, it creates a calming effect.

CBD interacts with a receptor known as TRPV-1. This is a receptor which mediates pain perception, inflammation, and body temperature. It also activates the Adenosine receptors. This plays a big role in cardiovascular blood flow and function.

Grateful for
all the brave men and women
who serve our country.

Veterans have the right to discuss medical cannabis as a treatment option with their Veterans Affairs doctors in states where it is legal. There have been many studies showing that cannabis use, along with the use of CBD, has provided relief for many of the symptoms that veterans suffer from. In fact, statistics show that many veterans have been self-medicating with cannabis. For those who do not live in a state that voted medical cannabis legal yet, CBD isolates are an option, containing absolutely no trace of THC. Using a CBD infused product that does not contain THC is an alternative.

Scientific research highlights the important role of the endocannabinoid system in protecting against post-traumatic stress disorder. Researchers found that people with PTSD had lower serum levels of anandamide, a neurotransmitter classified as an endocannabinoid that plays a role in pain, depression, appetite, and memory. It has been determined that the cannabinoid receptor known as CB-1 mediates a broad range of physiological functions. The normal signaling of CB-1 deactivates traumatic memories; therefore, low serum levels of anandamide results in the hallmarks of PTSD.

Most veterans suffering from PTSD take prescription anti-psychotics, and painkillers for their physical injuries. Many of these medicines come with risky side effects and severe dependence has led to the current overdose crisis in the US. Our veterans deserve an alternative that does not risk fatal consequences, as some pharmaceuticals can be taken incorrectly or without precaution. CBD is a natural alternative that may treat ailments without the side effects that synthetic drugs can cause.

The United States government has reported 0 deaths due to consumption of herbal/natural medicine. On the other hand, doctor prescribed medicines and over the counter drugs kill millions. “Over two million Americans are estimated to have a problem with opioids.”

CBD is thought to modulate various neuronal circuits involved in drug addiction. Taking an alternative approach allows to targets the cause of the disease without the risky side-effects and dependence that synthetic drugs can cause. Natural alternatives feature elements that are natural to the chemical makeup of the human body. Medicinal herbs, including cannabis have compounds that work together in enhancing the positive qualities of the other. This is called the “Entourage Effect.”

Alternative medicine takes the whole-body approach and is meant to accompany, not replace, standard medical practices.

CBD is non-psychoactive and safe for your pets! Like humans, animals produce endocannabinoids that act on specific receptors that are found throughout the body. These sites, which make up what’s called the endocannabinoid system, are primarily in the brain and central nervous system, and in peripheral organs, especially immune cells. The primary messenger cannabinoid in dogs is anandamide and 2-AG, which activate CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain as well as other regions. CBD binds to these receptors for a longer duration, and evokes long-lasting therapeutic response without causing toxic effects.

There are many studies that have promising findings, including that the endocannabinoid system and cannabinoids could prevent immune and inflammatory allergic disorders, including skin problems, in dogs. It can also help with pain, tumors, seizures, muscle spasms, appetite stimulation, aggression, anxiety and neurological disorders. Having anticonvulsant and anti-epileptic properties, CBD has high effect, compared to anticonvulsant drugs. These studies give hope when treating your pet for a chronic condition.

Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

Mitochondria, and the endoplasmic reticulum are two structures in most cells that sustains life. It was found that the cell generates lipid molecules that disrupts the mitochondria the cell when THC hits the receptor. This closes off energy for the cancerous cell. This kills the cancer cell due to the very small shift in the mitochondria. The primary job of CBD in the cancer cell is to disrupt the endoplasmic reticulum. This occurs when calcium is pushed into the cytosol, wrecking the calcium metabolism and resulting in cell death. Caspase Cascade is another pathway for CBD to effect cancer cell death. In this pathway, proteins and peptides in the cell breaks down. When this happens, the cancerous cell cannot survive, leaving the normal cell unaffected. Announced by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), this was a breakthrough for cancer research.
