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.

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!

Psoriasis and Other Skin Issues SOLVED – How Cannabidiol (CBD) Heals Your Skin

Psoriasis, CBD for Psoriasis, CBD Topical Balm, CBD Skin Cream

When a product becomes so hyped up, it’s often just hot air. But when it comes to cannabidiol (CBD), that is not the case. Why? Because there is actual science researching its effects. And while many people have personal experience with CBD, myself included, the rest of us like to see proof. The scientific method offers us the best proof possible, but let me first tell you about my psoriasis. Bottom line: I had psoriasis for over 20 years, and nothing worked. Nothing. But CBD completely eradicated it. I wish I took pictures, however, I have friends and family members who have witnessed the transformation.

At one point, my psoriasis was so bad that it looked like a flesh-eating bacteria. It was embarrassing wearing shorts. And in the hot and dry southern California weather, shorts are a must. That said, I started trying out CBD products at the beginning of this year (2018). But it was mostly for mild anxiety, and it worked better than anything else I have ever tried. So all the research of it being a powerful anti-inflammatory were true!

I was heavily into CBD research. One of the most recent research done this year was on schizophrenia– a severe mental illness debilitating many individuals and lacking any true remedies. The research concluded:

These findings suggest that CBD has beneficial effects in patients with schizophrenia. As CBD’s effects do not appear to depend on dopamine receptor antagonism, this agent may represent a new class of treatment for the disorder.

How CBD Works

It is now an accepted fact that most diseases originate from inflammation. Headaches, muscle pain, epilepsy, anxiety, cancer, and auto-immune diseases. EVERYTHING stems from inflammation. And this is where CBD comes in.

CBD naturally signals our bodies in multiple ways to decrease inflammation and encourages homeostasis. The science is conclusive and exhaustive, but for a quick summary:

  • After studying why THC has such a powerful psychoactive effect on humans, researchers discovered the Endocannabinoid System.
  • The Endocannabinoid System (ES) is found in all invertebrates.
  • The ES consists of two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2
  • CB1 is found in the central nervous system (brain). THC targets this receptor.
  • CB2 is found in blood cells and the immune system.
  • CBD is found (targets) both CB1 and CB2 receptors, hence the benefits for using it for mental and auto-immune disease therapy.
  • CBD sends signals to our cells to reduce inflammation and get into balance (homeostasis)

That is a very oversimplified explanation of how CBD works. I just want you to know that there is real science behind the experiences. So when I tell you that this CBD topical cream cleared up my psoriasis, I am not pulling your leg. Is it a sales pitch? Partly. Will you benefit? Definitely.

Not all CBD Products Are Created Equal

As in all free market economies, one must practice personal responsibility and take measures themselves to assure quality. We don’t want the government overregulating this industry, or else we will have monopolies as we do in other government regulated industries.

Just this week, the FDA approved Epidiolex, a big-pharma drug made mostly of CBD. The FDA also asked the DEA to reschedule the drug (Epidolex specifically, not CBD) as a Schedule V drug. That means all the other CBD products out there are still classified as Schedule I drugs since they didn’t pay 100s-of-thousands-of-dollars in government fees and bureaucracy to get approved. See where we are going with this?

Nonetheless, do your own due diligence and make sure that the CBD products you buy have been tested and verified by independent 3rd party laboratories. The CBD Online Store makes sure that all our CBD products come from manufacturers that can provide this information to us. So far, only Elixinol has passed our strict procedures. But we are looking at others. Make sure to check out our products and contact us if you have any questions.

Disclaimer: We are not medical doctors, so make sure you ask your physician before beginning or changing any regimen, as it may affect your current medication. CBD is a powerful compound and will interfere with your current medication.

Before we get into the different CBD delivery systems and methods, let’s quickly go over why CBD is so beneficial.

Despite the mainstream narrative, there are thousands of scientific journals studying the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) on humans. The vast majority of the studies show conclusively that CBD helps in the management of many psychological and physical ailments–most notably anxiety and epilepsy. These are disorders that traditional science has not been able to get under control without triggering other problems, i.e. “side effects.” Why is that?

That is because pharmaceutical drugs tend to laser-focus on a single symptom, and are designed to fix it. The problem is that another issue then arises, which will need another laser-focused drug to fix it. Before you know it, patients are on a number of pills to manage their health. This becomes cumbersome and expensive. And while the pharmaceutical industry has done wonderful and miraculous things to progress humanity, nothing is wrong with a reassessment. Reassessments allow us to perfect our perspectives and processes. So why does CBD work so well?

The Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is ancient and is present in all invertebrates. The cannabis plant has been with us since the dawn of civilization and has been used as far back as 5000 years ago in China. But it wasn’t until modern science came along that helped us discover and understand the endocannabinoid system.

When Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) was discovered in the 1970s, it led to many other cannabinoids and phytocannabinoids being discovered. It finally led to the discovery of a cannabinoid receptor named CBR1. Then shortly after that, another cannabinoid receptor was found and it was named CBR2.

The Cannabinoid Receptors

CBR1 was the first to be discovered because of the study of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC and its effects on the brain. CBR1 is a cannabinoid receptor found in the central nervous system (CNS), and is “the most widely-expressed receptor protein from the GPCR family in the brain.”

CBR2 dominates the immune system, but there are traces found in the brain and many other systems. Evidence points to CBR2 being active in neurological functions also. So, CBD can be found in the brain (CBR1) and immune system (CBR2), which means both can benefit from the anti-inflammatory qualities of cannabidiol. Why is an anti-inflammatory so important?

Inflammation and Disease

Research shows us that all diseases stem from some sort of inflammation. For example, anxiety happens because of inflammation in the brain causing irregular behavior. Epilepsy is also a disease stemming from inflammation(s) in the brain (CBR1). CBD was first recognized for easing the symptoms of epilepsy. And there are countless research reports done on the healing qualities of CBD on epilepsy.

On the other hand, auto-immune diseases are inflammations in the immune system (CBR2). Arthritis, for example, is inflammation in the joints. CBD has shown to decrease pain in Rheumatoid Arthritis and many other auto-immune diseases. So now that we have established that CBD can help with a wide variety of diseases, how can one ingest it?

Available CBD Delivery Systems and Methods

Although CBD can be consumed by smoking cannabis that contains high amounts of CBD, it usually also contains THC. And for those that don’t like the psychoactive effects of THC, there are hemp oil extracts available that contain high amounts of CBD.

The CBD Online Store carries these types of CBD products. Each one contains CBD/Hemp Oil extracted using the CO2 extraction process. That means you are getting the purest CBD possible. The cannabidiol is extracted from specially grown organic hemp plants and is verified by 3rd party laboratories for purity and potency. These are the available CBD delivery systems and methods:

  1. Capsules – These CBD capsules contain 15mg of CBD in each capsule. People like these because they can take them with their daily vitamins regiment. 1 to 2 capsules should help with any inflammation you think you are having. Not a very quick delivery method, since you have to wait for the digestive system to dissolve the capsules before it enters your bloodstream.
  2. LiposomesCBD Liposomes is high tech medicine applied to the cannabis industry. CBD (and all cannabinoids) like to be stored in fat cells in our body. So injecting CBD into fat cells (liposomes) it can survive the gastric process. This allows the CBD to be delivered to your cells undamaged. It is a quicker delivery system than capsules, especially under the tongue. Read more about liposome technology here.
  3. TincturesCBD Tinctures gives users the opportunity to measure out how much CBD to take. It also allows patients to mix CBD with liquids or food recipes as needed. Each serving (1/2 a tincture) contains 5mg of CBD. Under the tongue delivery is a quick delivery method.
  4. VapingCBD Vape Juice is sold under the Respira name. This CBD product is extremely versatile, and can be taken under the tongue, mixed in liquid or food, and can be vaped by placing it in a vape cartridge. Vaping is the quickest delivery method out of all of these.
  5. Balms and Creams – Patients that suffer from arthritis or other muscle pains, strains, etc. can benefit from the CBD Topical Balms. Just message the cream into the affected area and feel the amazing anti-inflammatory effects of cannabidiol.

Even our pets have an endocannabinoid system, so they too can benefit from the effects of CBD. Many customers have thanked CBD Pet Treats for treating their pets’ pain and anxiety (bad behavior) issues. CBD is becoming more accepted in the medical community, and the government is slowly getting around to the fact that the cannabis plant is very beneficial to humans (and their pets).
