CBD FOR PETS

CBD FOR PETS

It is well known that CBD can be used for pain in people, but did you know that your pets body responds similarly to yours in regard to how CBD works to relieve pain. Much like people, pets have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that is used to help maintain balance in the body. The ECS works naturally with CBD to initiate the desired responses in the body. In 97, there was a study published that showed the ECS was deeply involved in pain relief.

CBD can help manage pain in a number of ways; it can stop the absorption of anandamide ( a chemical the dulls pain signals in the brain) and is also used an anti-inflammatory ( which is the cause of a lot of pain in the body).

With all the information provided it is safe to say that CBD can be helpful to our pets for a number of reasons without any side effects. Our pets that are suffering from anxiety, pain, inflammation, digestion issues, or seizures do not have to suffer any longer. The science is there, the evidence is in your pet can benefit from the wonders that CBD has to offer!

CBD Clears Brain Fog By Treating The Cause

CBD Clears Brain Fog By Treating The Cause

There are many factors that can cause this feeling of brain fog; stress, sleep, hormonal changes, diet, medications, and several medical conditions. Knowing what we know about CBD, can we say that it can be useful to treat these causes? Let’s take a look at the science…

CBD is proven to be effective in treating many of our bodies systems. It works with our natural systems to balance the body. There are many factors that can cause this feeling of brain fog; stress, sleep, hormonal changes, diet, medications, and several medical conditions. Knowing what we know about CBD can we say that it is useful in treating these causes?

CBD BALANCES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

CBD BALANCES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Cannabis in different forms has been used for its medicinal and nutritional purposes for thousands of years. Archeologists are discovering evidence of cannabis oil and seeds in ancient Chinese food dating as far back as 6000 BCE. Although the Chinese used the plant for a variety of reasons, its main purpose was medicinal. Ancient civilizations around the world, including Egypt, Europe, Africa, Asia, India, Greece, the Middle East, and Rome, believed CBD balances the immune system and used it for medicinal and nutritional purposes. Simply put, these civilizations used cannabis to keep their bodies in balance weather currently sick or not. So, like a vitamin? Sounds like it.

Today, scientists are trying to understand cannabis on a molecular level.  For example, the makeup of cannabis and how it interacts with the complexity of our biological system. With all the science that has been done so far, we still know fairly little regarding the cannabinoids and the immune system.

However, the studies we have now indicate that cannabinoids are immunosuppressant. This is great for patients with autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation. On the other hand, research shows us that cannabinoids are effective in increasing white blood cell counts in immunodeficient patients. Wait, it gets even more confusing when we talk about how cannabinoids interact with endocannabinoid system. Scientists believe this system interacts with all cellular/biological activity in the body, including the immune system.

Bottom line, there is so much that still needs to be learned about CBD balancing the immune system. Let’s take a look at what we know.

CBD USED FOR MIGRAINES: THE HISTORY

CBD USED FOR MIGRAINES: THE HISTORY

CBD oil was the treatment of choice for migraines in 2000 BCD and continued through 1937. Unfortunately, the science to support its use has not caught up to historical evidence yet. But, I for one will not let that stop me from trying something that was used successfully for thousands of years. Many people are choosing not wait for science to catch up and are trying this treatment for themselves. The results are in! As more people continue to use CBD as a treatment for migraine, scientists can begin to collect data to support its effectiveness.
CBD research has established that it is affective at treating inflammation. Knowing what we know about CBD, it is not unreasonable to suggest that the use of CBD will help soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of acne breakouts and redness.

Research has also suggested there is a potential of decreasing excess oil production. Data is indicating that this is due to the balancing (homeostasis) effects on the cells.

Scientists have said they need more studies to conclusively confirm these results.

CBD OIL BENEFITS SKIN

CBD OIL BENEFITS SKIN

There are two types of acne; inflammatory and non-inflammatory. If you have, what most of us know, the red swollen blemishes, you have inflammatory acne. Now, there are many different types of inflammatory acne. There is the relatively mild with a few red blemishes. Then there is more serious forms; cystic, nodular, and nodulocystic acne.

CBD HELPS INSOMNIA BY TREATING CAUSES

CBD HELPS INSOMNIA BY TREATING CAUSES

According to a study done by Harvard, “CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.” CBD helps insomnia by addressing the root causes of insomnia. Many clinical trials on sleep and CBD include giving the people between 25 mg to 1,500 mg of CBD per day. However, for you, we recommend starting with a low dose and increasing as needed.
CBD, cannabidiol, is one compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD works with your endocannabinoid system to help maintain many functions in your body, including appetite, mood, and even sleep. What is the endocannabinoid system? Well, this system has a network of cannabinoid receptors in the brain/nervous system that work to maintain homeostasis (balance) in the body. So, how does CBD help? Firstly, we need to look at the causes of insomnia.

Let’s talk inflammation and CBD. All of us have had the privilege of experiencing the joys that inflammation brings. Firstly, pain can come from a disease or disorder exacerbated by inflammation. However, we are all here to say we feel your pain. Like you, we like to know what is best to use to give us some relief.

HOW CBD HELPS DIABETES

HOW CBD HELPS DIABETES

Diabetes, is an unfortunate and often misunderstood disease.  We can relate to that as CBD is often quickly judged for its THC counterpart and heavily misunderstood. While I will get into what Diabetes is and how it works, firstly, let’s talk about the relationship CBD has with the treatment of Diabetes. The FDA has one CBD oil approved drug on the market. It is used to treat two types of Epilepsy. Therefore, there is no prescription for CBD oil to treat Diabetes. However, that is like saying water isn’t technically prescribed to treat dehydration. If it works, you don’t need the FDA to slap a label on it right?

Maybe you have found yourself avoiding all situations that make you feel uncomfortably social.
