Reading a CBD Label: How to Find a Quality Product

Maybe you’ve been considering taking cannabidiol (CBD), to see if it eases symptoms of chronic pain, anxiety, or another condition. But reading and understanding CBD product labels can be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to CBD. Understanding CBD labels is made even more complicated by the fact that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)Trusted Source hasn’t approved any nonprescription CBD products. Instead, it’s up to you, the consumer, to do your research or rely on third-party testing to determine the quality and contents of a particular CBD product. CBD is either hemp-derived or marijuana-derived. Depending on where you live and the laws in your state or country, you may be able to buy both marijuana-derived and hemp-derived CBD products.  Knowing the difference between marijuana...

What Are some more Benefits of CBD?

Does CBD work?                            “It’s promising in a lot of different therapeutic avenues because it’s relatively safe,” said James MacKillop, co-director of McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research in Hamilton, Ontario. Last year, the F.D.A. approved Epidiolex, a purified CBD extract, to treat rare seizure disorders in patients 2 years or older after three randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trials with 516 patients that showed the drug, taken along with other medications, helped to reduce seizures. These types of studies are the gold standard in medicine, in which participants are divided by chance, and neither the subject nor the investigator knows which group is...

More than 60 percent of CBD users have taken it for anxiety, according to a survey of 5,000 people, conducted by the Brightfield Group, a cannabis market research firm. Chronic pain, insomnia and depression follow behind. What is CBD? Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the lesser-known child of the cannabis sativa plant; its more famous sibling, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the active ingredient in pot that catapults users’ “high.” With roots in Central Asia, the plant is believed to have been first used medicinally — or for rituals — around 750 B.C.,...

CBD For Pain Relief

BY Admin, “Underdiagnosed and undertreated, chronic pain amounts to an unrecognized public health crisis afflicting more than 116 million adult Americans each year and costing the nation $560 billion to $635 billion annually in medical and economic expenses.” (Institute of Medicine report). This is not only an issue in the USA but also in most western countries. Back, knee, joint… you name it – it hurts. This is also a major factor in the current opioid crisis because opioid drugs were over-prescribed in an attempt to control their discomfort. We have several CBD-based products that may help with the pain. First, CBD oil is favored by many people who are trying to deal with pain as well as to reduce the intake of...

Feeling Cannabissly

  CBD And How It Works In Our Bodies The human body has what is called an Endocannabinoid System inside our brains and nervous systems. According to Wikipedia, “The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, pregnancy during pre- and post-natal development, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis.” That’s quite a mouthful of technical and medical jargon, isn’t it? Here’s what it means in plain English:...
