Subject: Here is why cannabis oil is being used more and more in beauty products





Cannabis oil is increasingly being used in health products. Political decisions have made it easier to research cannabis. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive drug that is found in the cannabis plant with only a little amount of THC, which is the ingredient that is known to make people high in marijuana. Studies have shown that CBD can actually help those dealing with acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, and dry skin due to it's ability to lessen sebum production.

Key Takeaways:

  • The writer ponders over the fact that the recreational use of cannabis is a criminal activity yet it is used extensively in oils, serums, masks, and moisturizers.
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) products are having a huge impact on the market because recent legislative changes have allowed them to experiment more on the benefits of cannabis.
  • Cannabidiol oil, according to experts, is a non-psychoactive compound in the hemp plant and it is extracted from the seeds and leaves.

"“Cannabis, which until not too long ago was taboo, has now started to emerge as a significant element in the medical and wellness sectors,” says Hugh Winters, CEO of Australian skincare company MGC Derma."

Many dog owners notice that their canine friends are experiencing similar issues, and begin to wonder if CBD could also be beneficial to man's best friend. Fortunately, research is showing that since CBD contains little to no traces of THC, the odds are pretty high that it is safe for canine consumption within reason.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some dog owners are wary of CBD oil because it comes from the marijuana plant.
  • Owners of elderly dogs report that CBD oil is effective in reducing pain and anxiety in these dogs.
  • CBD oil can replace phenobarbital as a treatment for dogs that have seizures.

"The final product includes very little to no THC trace, giving your dog all the benefits with the least potential for risk."

CBD oil reduces chronic illness pain

One of the compounds in marijuana is cannabidiol (CBD), whose interactions with the endocannabinoid system of the human body can produce a number of beneficial health effects, including helping with pain control. CBD is a safe, non-addictive, non-narcotic compound with few side effects that can reduce inflammation and pain in patients with fibromyalgia, intestinal complaints, multiple sclerosis and other conditions. We are just starting to understand CBD and the endocannabinoid system, and there is an urgent need for more research into this emerging field of medical knowledge.

Key Takeaways:

  • Human beings have an endocannabinoid system, which CBD oil interacts with when taken internally, thereby positively affecting pain levels.
  • Considered an agonist, or promoter of the endocannabinoid system, CBD oil, is beneficial to those suffering from fibromyalgia.
  • It's been shown that antagonists, that work against the human endocannabinoid system, exert a detrimental effect in fibromyalgia sufferers.

"CBD oil, in particular, is growing in popularity, for its ability to treat a number of ailments without the psychoactive effects typically associated with regular cannabis."

Can CBD Help with Chemotherapy Treatments?

The potency of chemotherapy has long been considered a mixed blessing for cancer-sufferers, because while it can obliterate cancer cells, sometimes very effectively, it also has the effect of annihilating healthy cells along the way. Because of the unintended second effect, users often experience nasty side issues, including nausea, hair-loss, swelling of the extremities, and diarrhea.

Canabidiol is a derivative from the hemp plant. Unlike oil culled from its relative, marijuana, the hemp derivative is not an abundant source of THC, the psychotropic element that gives marijuana its buzz. Good news for cancer sufferers undergoing chemo, because study suggests the oil can mitigate many of the bugbears affiliated with chemo use. Gains were seen across the side-effect spectrum, in fact. Study showed nausea was ameliorated, swelling contained, weight loss prevented, pain mitigated, and a better mood induced.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chemotherapy is known to kill off healthy and cancer cells effectively and without discrimination.
  • This capability can lead to an array of side effects for chemo-recipients, including hair loss, nausea and swelling of extremities.
  • CBD oil has been shown to positively impact many of these side effects, including weight loss, depression, nausea and swelling.

"Fortunately there are studies which suggest that cannabidiol (CBD), one of the chemicals derived from cannabis plants , can actually help manage the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy."

CBD oil: the cannabis supplement taking the wellness world by storm

Cannabis oil, despite having proven medicinal properties, is currently illegal in many parts of the world, because it also has high levels of an intoxicating substance. The same cannot be said for cannabidiol oil, which unlike cannabis, which comes from the marijuana plant, is a derived from hemp.

Cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil, affects neural receptors in a positive way, boosting brain chemicals, like serotonin, but without psychoactive elements. This makes the oil a boon for those suffering from various forms of anxiety, as well as PTSD and panic attacks. CBD oil is anti-inflammatory and it promotes REM sleep, which makes it invaluable for joint-pain relief and insomnia.

CBD oil is generally sold as both a capsule and an oil-specific product. It's recommended that users start with small doses, building up slowly. 6.4 mgs 3x a day is a good amount to enhance overall health. However, to address specific concerns, up to three times that amount many be needed. Again, one should only take such a high dose after taking the time to build up to it in increments.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is one one of hottest remedies right now for a wide variety of issues.
  • Unlike marijuana, CBD oil does not come with mind-altering side effects,
  • Although some users experience dry mouth, decreased blood pressure, and sleepiness, such reactions are rare.

"Cannabidiol (CBD) oil (derived from the stems and leaves of hemp plants) is currently flying off shelves at the moment due to its wide range of purported health benefits that include better sleep and the relief of joint pain, stress and anxiety."

CBD may help smokers quit cigarettes, finds new study

Humans have what is called a electrochemical system that can be directly impacted by substances referred to as endocannabinoids. One of these is cannabidiol (CBD). CBD oil was given to 30 participants in a 2013 study, and it showed that it helped them successfully reduce the amount of cigarettes that they smoked by 40%. More studies have to be done to determine a direct correlation, but this is good news for those who are continuously struggling to find natural ways to quit.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cannabinoids in marijuana can trigger an electrochemical signaling system, the endocannabinoid system, in the body which can also be activated by natural cannabinoids.
  • Using 30 nicotine-dependent smokers, some given a placebo and others CBD, the researchers sought to find out if cannabidiol (CBD) influenced tobacco cravings or withdrawals.
  • The study showed great promise but more research needs to be done to fully explore cannabis effectiveness as an aid to helping smokers stop.

"In 2013, a study published in the journal Addictive Behaviors found that smokers who were given a CBD inhaler reduced their cigarette consumption by around 40% compared to those given a placebo."

CBD is being used in a variety of ways. One of the most popular is to treat drug addiction, which means it may be the key to ending the opiod crisis. CBD is being used to treat chronic illnesses as well as for pain management. It contains cannabindiol, but not the THC for the 'head high' but rather a 'body high' that relaxes muscles, relieves inflammation, and has even been credited with relieving gastrointestinal issues.

Key Takeaways:

  • Because cannabidiol (CBD) doesn't contain the psychoactive drug tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) it cannot make changes to the mind of the user.
  • Americans have adopted CBD widely, buying an estimated $100 million worth of CBD products although they do not have clear cut idea of its effects.
  • Dr. Blessing, a New York University (NYU) researcher, affirms that CBD does have an effect on the brain but this is in more medicinal ways.

"New York University (NYU) researcher Dr. Esther Blessing states that CBD shows potential as a means of treating addiction and anxiety. She adds that full clinical trials will be needed to determine its effects."

Then the grogginess and a crushing feeling replaced the warm and fuzzies. Through a grueling withdrawal period, he quit Oxycontin. The pain from is crushed legs endured. Luckily through Brazilian jiu-jitsu training partners, he learned about a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and cannabis called cannabidiol (CBD). Despite not containing THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, adaptation of CBD oil has slow. However, it is starting gain notice and momentum. In 2016, CBD oil has been legal in the UK and it's showed promise in several studies. One thing for sure, it helps Richard Holt.

A company, called Kings Royal Biotech has decided to partner up with a Chinese industrial hemp development company, in order to open the largest cannabidiol (CBD) processing plant in the United States. CBD is a substance that is extracted from the hemp plant, but it is not psychoactive. In fact, CBD has been shown to be useful in treating a variety of medical conditions, including epilepsy and chronic pain. THC, on the other hand, is the substance in marijuana that can give a user a psychoactive effect. King Royal intends to grow hemp that is free of THC, so that the CBD could be isolated and utilized for medicinal purposes, without the risk of giving the user a psychoactive effect. Additionally, this means that the products are completely legal, in accordance with the laws of the federal government of the United States.

Key Takeaways:

  • This plant being built in Kentucky will be they largest in the country to produce CBD
  • It is a partnership with a Chinese company that is the only current manufacturer of this pure product.
  • It is the first approved in the US to make this product with hemp instead of cannabis.

"Under Federal Law industrial hemp cannot contain more than .3 percent THC, so there is no chance of any users having an altered state of mind from this product."

Subject: Can your dog be arrested for using a cannabis extract?





Thomas McDermott, a Democrat and the Mayor of Hammond, Indiana, brought up the legality of using cannabidiol oil (CBD) for treating his Labrador retriever's arthritis at the BGD Legislative Conference in Indianapolis. At the conference was Republican Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill who last month stated that the use of CBD was illegal in most circumstances in his state after a bill passed to allow epilepsy patients to legally use the oil for seizures. McDermott questioned Hill using a story about his dog that suffered from arthritis, noting that his vet recommended using CBD oil to treat the pain. He mentioned that the oil allowed his dog to move around more easily, had more energy, and had improved appetite. McDermott thought aloud that Hill was "grandstanding" on CBD, but Hill simply stated he was following the law as it was written. When McDermott asked if his dog was breaking the law, Hill responded that the Mayor himself was breaking the law - not the dog. McDermott was upset afterwards that Hill accused him for being a criminal for treating his dog with CBD, and he has no plans to change the therapy for his dog.

Key Takeaways:

  • The owners dog currently used CBD and that is restricted in Indiana for use.
  • The dog is currently on it due to arthritis and it seems to cure his condition.
  • The final conclusion was that the owner was breaking the law, not the dog since the dog has no agency.

"The question Thomas McDermott wanted answered Wednesday doesn’t get asked often during policy discussions in Indiana: Could his Labrador retriever be breaking the law by using a pain remedy extracted from cannabis?"

He states that CBD is legal and is used by as many as 25,000 people in the UK. The author argues that further development of this product as an alternative to opioids is hindered by the perception of cannabis as dangerous.

Key Takeaways:

  • CBD oil is non-addictive and can treat chronic pain as well as insomnia
  • More research could create data needed to promote cannabis as an alternative to opioids but the government is reluctant to fund this research

Subject: CBD Success Stories: How Cannabidiol Improves Lives





The cannabidol plant (CBD) is something that not every person knows about. The human body naturally produces CBD and has CBD receptors in the brain. CBD based products have been shown to have use across a variety of medical contexts, including relief from severe pain caused by migraines, nerve injuries and menstrual cramps. CBD has also demonstrated its effectiveness in combating skin problems and helping individuals sleep, without the same hangover type effect caused by THC. CBD has proven to be a much more effective alternative to traditional pharmaceutical pain killers, without the harmful side effects caused by those medicines. Finally, CBD has been used as an ingredient in massage oil and lubricants to aid with the process of relaxation, and in some cases, romance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cannabinoid receptors are already present in our bodies from birth.
  • Our bodies can create our own CBD from birth, which will attach to our cannabinoid receptors.
  • Use of cannabinoid oils allows for a more natural approach to pain management, as our bodies already have receptors ready to deal with an influx of cannabinoids.

"As lucky as we are to live in Colorado's cannabis haven, it's important to arm ourselves with knowledge about CBD and its healing effects."

Subject: Could Cannabidiol Be Used to Treat ASIA Syndrome?





Auto immune disorders are on the rise worldwide. While many are of unknown origin, one such disorder - ASIA syndrome, seems to be brought on by the use of adjuvants, which are compounds that are added to vaccines to boost their effectiveness. This allows you to use a lesser amount of the vaccine substance, but can cause other problems. One solution that is being explored is the use of cannabidiol (and other cannabis related products. Cannabis related compounds seem to suppress the production of cytokines common to immune reactions, which in turn helps suppress the immune response.

Key Takeaways:

  • Autoimmune disorders are on the rise, one of which is ASIA Syndrome.
  • Research indicates that CBD's are a safe way to treat ASIA Syndrome because of its anti-inflammatory treatment abilities.
  • Because it is successful as an anti-inflammatory treatment with ASIA Syndrome cannabis studies should be done to see if CBD's would be successful in treatment of other autoimmune diseases.

"Cannabidiol (CBD) is known to safely treat a huge array of ailments and disorders, the most recent being ASIA Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that is steadily increasing in developed countries."

Researchers have discovered that treating mice with CBD can block later symptoms of fear and anxiety from being close to a predator. These findings are highly indicative that cannabis may be a useful tool for treating anxiety in people. This can seem in contrast to some people's experience with cannabis causing them anxiety and paranoia. Researchers are prevented from fully exploring this anomaly by government regulations, but they suggest that many factors can play a role in this including environment, the tolerance level of the user, and the strain of cannabis. Read on for more details into this study.

Key Takeaways:

  • A recent study looked into the effect of cannabis compound cannabidiol (CBD) on anxiety.
  • A lot of people suffer from paranoia or anxiety when smoking cannabis.
  • Scientists believe too much THC could be behind cannabis induced anxiety and paranoia. If CBD should be used to treat anxiety, it should be done with professional oversight.

Cannabis is the same as marijuana. It has a lot of properties which are conducive to healing. Many people swear by it. This is an example of it healing. If you believe this you might think about trying cannabis for yourself. Many people use it for pain and for other problems as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • Since the human body already contains a built-in endogenous cannabinoid system, complete with cannabinoid receptors, inputting CBD from marijuana can help normalize the body’s functional systems
  • The way CBDs work is that they bridge the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system, including in the brain, by providing a two-way system of communication that completes a positive “feedback loop”

5 Reasons the DEA's Marijuana Ruling Is Absurd and Indefensible

Subject: 5 Reasons the DEA's Marijuana Ruling Is Absurd and Indefensible





On December 14, 2016, in the Federal Register, DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg made cannabis a Schedule I controlled substance by making it illegal to use. People suffering from medical issues often use cannabis (CBD) and CBD oil in their treatment. Opponents to the new classification argue that cannabis should not be included in Schedule 1 drugs. For starters, they say it’s not psychoactive, addictive, or dangerous. Also, the US government has conducted research on the drug and concluded that it has medical benefits. In addition, it has been helpful in treating other coditions, like seizures and schizophrenia.

Key Takeaways:

  • That last bit about treaty provisions? That’s the justification for the move. It’s meant to make the United States more compliant with treaties and agreements involving drug and narcotics control.
  • It’s an extract that has promising medical value, and by placing it under the Schedule I umbrella, the DEA is doing more harm than good.
  • They’re basically taking medicine from sick people with this move. It’s really hard to justify. Maybe even an indefensible move.

"While it’s possible to abuse marijuana (along with anything else), dependence and addiction are rare."
