We really take for granted the age we live in; this age of convenience. We shop online, get free delivery, and find the answer to any question in the blink of an eye. We communicate with loved ones thousands of miles away and watch 360-degree videos of visits to Antarctica. Every day we hear about new scientific discoveries and advancements that propel humanity to the stars.  But, do we ever stop and be thankful? Thankful for this civilization of abundance and convenience?

What we should really be thankful for is the ability to enjoy the healing properties of an ancient plant making a come back from prohibition: cannabis/hemp, or more specifically, cannabidiol (CBD). This Thanksgiving, let’s celebrate these 5 reasons to be thankful for CBD.

Thankful for CBD Healing Epilepsy

For many years, Epilepsy in children has been a mystery. In fact, there has not been any modern treatment that is able to help stop epileptic episodes from happening. However, CBD has always been shown to stop most episodes from ever occurring. If it wasn’t for this healing power of CBD, mother’s pushing for its legalization, and empathizing politicians, we would have never seen the legalization of medical cannabis in this country –or the world. For that reason, we are thankful for CBD healing Epilepsy.

Thankful for CBD Easing Anxiety

Anxiety is another ailment that modern medicine is not able to fix without bad side-effects. Take for example the “fine print” we see and hear in pharmaceutical commercials on TV and Radio. Who wants to risk any of that? CBD is shown to naturally help ease the effects of anxiety. It has been the subject of many scientific studies, available in official scientific journals, which we have shown here. For that, we are thankful for CBD easing anxiety for many individuals.

Thankful for CBD Healing our Pets

For many years, our pets shared our access to modern medicine. And for the most part, they benefitted greatly. But they are vulnerable to pharmaceuticals for the same reasons that we are and are prone to the same (or worse) side-effects. There is a reason why we are so close to our pets. For one thing, we share many of the same genes. We also share the Endocannabinoid System (ES). This same system is why CBD and other cannabinoids work naturally with our bodies. For more information on CBD and the ES, read more here. And to give your pet the gift of healing, shop here for these CBD Pet Treats.

Thankful for CBD Healing Psoriasis/Eczema

CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory, so it only makes sense to try and use it on skin inflammations such as psoriasis and eczema. Although we haven’t seen any scientific studies done as of yet, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence seen from everyday people. These individuals report that their psoriasis is gone after 6 weeks of applying a CBD infused skin cream, such as this CBD Topical Balm.

Thankful for CBD Speeding Up Athletic Recovery

The sports industry is always trying to take advantage of modern techniques to increase speed, agility, and strength. Athletes are extremely competitive and love to win. So, if that win is in the form of a pill or shake, they are taking it.

CBD is a very powerful anti-inflammatory, and athletes are reporting that it does wonders for post-workout muscle recovery. No wonder that there is an entire industry now growing with CBD infused shakes and pills to help speed up recovery. For that reason, we are thankful for CBD speeding up athletic recovery. If you want the purest most potent CBD Capsules, check out these ones in the store. This one from Sweat CBD was designed with recovery in mind. Check it out here.

There are many other reasons to be thankful for CBD, but we found the above to be the most prevalent. This Thanksgiving, be thankful for the activists and politicians working to decriminalize and legalize a plant that has been with us for centuries. And be thankful to the researchers and scientists progressing the healing effects of cannabinoids, such as CBD. Be thankful that we live in a country that laws are changed because of the will of the voters. And for that, we are thankful to the American people. Happy Thanksgiving 2018!

Our Veterans Deserve Cannabidiol (CBD) To Be Legal

World War I ended on November 11th, 1918. Actually, history says that the war ended on the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th-month in 1918–precisely 100 years ago. Ever since then, we have been celebrating this day in remembrance of our fallen heroes as Veterans Day. But you know what would really celebrate our veterans? The gift of healing.

The Maltreatment of our Veterans

It is not a secret that our country mistreats veterans.  Despite him missing the Veterans Day Observance at the Arlington Cemetery, Donald Trump made a promise to give our veterans the attention and care that they deserve. An Alice in Chains song (heard below), “Rooster”, speaks about a Vietnam-era veteran that experiences mistreatment with the lyrics, “they spit on me in my homeland.” The movie Born on the Fourth of July, starring Tom Cruise dealt with this issue also. There is an abundance of evidence that our veterans are not treated as well as they should.

Veterans Support Cannabis Legalization

Last year, WeedUpdate reported that the American Legion, which is an organization created by Congress in 1919 to take care of our beloved veterans announced their support for rescheduling/de-scheduling of cannabis from the Controlled Substance Act (CSA) list so that more research can be done. Their support came after the conclusion of a national survey regarding veterans and their experience with medical marijuana. According to WeedUpdate, these were the results of the survey:

  • 92% support research into medical cannabis for PTSD and chronic pain.
  • 82% support that medical cannabis becomes a federally legal treatment option.
  • 83% support that marijuana becomes federally legal.
  • Only 22% of respondents said that they already use medical cannabis for treatment.
  • Only 40% lived in a state where they have medical marijuana laws.

We need to listen to our veterans, give them the gift of healing, and legalize cannabis at the federal level.

CBD Treats Ailments that Effects Veterans

Veterans suffer from many different ailments. Tinnitus and hearing loss top the list, but Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a close third. PTSD has been linked with developing auto-immune diseases, anxiety, sleeplessness, and depression. Cannabidiol (CBD), which is one of 113 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant can scientifically treat many of these ailments. Why?

CBD is a natural and powerful anti-inflammatory. Inflammation, especially chronic inflammation, has been linked to every single disease. Cannabis, in general, is a powerful anti-inflammatory, but CBD cures “incurable” diseases like epilepsy, which is caused by inflammation in the brain. Anxiety and other mental ailments are also caused by inflammations in the brain. The FDA just approved Epidiolex, a pharmaceutical with CBD as its active ingredient, to treat epilepsy. Shortly after that approval, the DEA rescheduled Epidiolex to a Schedule V drug, as in, harmless. However, it did not reschedule CBD in general, just Epidiolex. Does that make any sense? All this evidence and all this support, yet the federal government drags its feet on this issue. Cannabis is now legal in Canada and Mexico, yet we still classify it as dangerous as heroin and ecstasy. Something is very wrong with that.

The CBD-Online-Store Supports Veterans and the Sacrifices They Have Made

We owe our entire global system to our veterans. Without their sacrifices, our country and our corporations would not be in the position they are today. It is time that we listen to their needs and give them what they want. Congress should listen to the demands of the American Legion and allow them to research cannabis and CBD to help them better treat and take care of our veterans.

CBD is legal in all 50 states, and the CBD-Online-Store has free shipping in the domestic United States. If you are veteran or know a veteran suffering from PTSD, sleeplessness, anxiety, or depression, give them the gift of healing. Shop now or contact us here if you have any questions.
