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!

What Cannabidiol (CBD) Is Not

What CBD is Not, CBD, CBD Online Store, CBD-Online-Store

The CBD industry is on the rise, and that comes with a lot of noise. Everyone is doing their best in telling you what CBD is, how it works, and what you can use it for. However, nobody is telling you what CBD is not. Here are the 5 things that CBD is not:

CBD Does NOT Get You High

The CBD molecule is non-psychoactive, which means that it does not get you high, nor does it impair your motor skills. On the contrary, CBD has been shown to improve mobility and motor skills. That seems to go against what we humans have experienced with medicine. For example, if we don’t want to feel pain, we end up taking medication that impairs our thinking and motor skills. Also, if we are feeling tired, we consume products that end up affecting our physiology. CBD, however, naturally signals and interacts with our endocannabinoid system, so we are left feeling better without unwanted side effects. There are many different CBD delivery methods which you can read about here.

CBD is NOT Dangerous

Contrary to what you may read about CBD being a Schedule I controlled substance with the DEA, it is not dangerous. In fact, zero reports of overdose or death resulting from CBD consumption. Quite the opposite, actually. According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health,

Here, the most commonly reported side effects were tiredness, diarrhea, and changes of appetite/weight. In comparison with other drugs, used for the treatment of these medical conditions, CBD has a better side effect profile. This could improve patients’ compliance and adherence to treatment.

Furthermore, the DEA just rescheduled a drug named Epidiolex –which contains pure isolated CBD– from Schedule I to Schedule V, meaning that it is harmless.

CBD is NOT from the Cannabis Plant

The cannabis plant is not the only plant that contains beneficial cannabinoids. We always tend to forget about its cousin, the hemp plant. Hemp has been used throughout human history for textiles (clothes), rope, and paper. The US Constitution is written on hemp paper. Our founding fathers, including George Washington, was an avid hemp farmer. The hemp plant only has 0.3% of THC. A minuscule amount that is acceptable by all testing authorities. As usual, it was lobbying, in this case, the cotton lobby, that demonized hemp and coerced our federal lawmakers to outlaw it. We are much better educated now, so these archaic laws can now be overturned at the federal level.

CBD is NOT Illegal

Despite CBD being a controlled substance at the federal level, it is legal in all 50 states. That is because CBD has been shown to the be the only cure for childhood epilepsy. Therefore, doctors, families, and politicians worked together to legalize CBD to bring comfort to children suffering from this otherwise incurable disease. Even the most conservative states have legalized CBD. However, the CBD must be extracted from hemp plants and not from the cannabis plant. That would make the legality of the product more difficult to argue. So, make sure the CBD you are getting is derived from hemp plants, just like the ones found in the CBD Online Store.

CBD is NOT Regulated

The CBD market is still a relatively new market and remains unregulated by government authorities. That means that we must rely on the industry to regulate itself. That also means that you must do a lot of research before choosing your CBD products. We at the CBD Online Store make sure that the companies we source from have the strictest manufacturing processes implemented. We also require that testing is carried out by independent 3rd party laboratories. This way, we can be sure that you are getting the purest most potent CBD.
