WHY CBD & FITNESS GO HAND-IN-HAND

There are 100 cannabinoids hemp plants, and CBD is one of them. It is known as a cure for so many health problems. There are various CBD products in the sector. However, it is essential to find a good one as health is the most crucial thing in our lives. CBD and Pain CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system and has been shown to manage a wide array of symptoms including pain and inflammation. CBD acts on CB1 and CB2 receptors to decrease pain signals from the brain to the body, as well as reduce localized inflammation. One of the most common complaints during exercise is pain. Whether it be due to an injury from years ago, daily aches and pains or chronic pain, CBD can help manage discomfort during exercise. Many individuals are using CBD during exercise to manage pain, as opposed to traditional Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatories (NSAIDS), because there are minimal side effects. CBD products, such as CBD water, acts to rehydrate the body, decrease inflammation and decrease pain signals, without upsetting the stomach or causing gastric damage (i.e. ulcers). Due to its non-psychoactive properties, CBD is a great choice for managing pain and inflammation during exercise as it will not interfere with cognitive functioning or safety. Unlike products which contain CBD and THC, pure CBD products will not make you feel “high”. CBD and Recovery If you’ve ever over-exercised a muscle group, you know that it can be an uncomfortable experience. Pain, swelling and muscle spasms are [...]

THE LEGAL STATUS OF CBD

CBD products are getting more and more popular over the years. However, people started to ask if this is a legal medicine. It is hard to say yes or no for this questions as laws are different in every country and even from state to state. There are different rules that the companies need to be aware of if they want to create a new CBD brand. Hemp CBD vs. Cannabis CBD There are two different plants that CBD can be extracted from: the hemp plant and the cannabis sativa plant. Hemp is defined as any plant containing less than .3% THC. Therefore, CBD extracted from the hemp plant contains only trace amounts of THC while CBD extracted from the cannabis sativa plant contains higher amounts of THC up to 30%. In other words, CBD extracted from hemp plants will not leave you feeling “high” after consumption. Industrial hemp is currently used around the world in paper products, clothing, automotive parts and cleaning products, and is fully legal. CBD produced from hemp plants is legal in the UK, Canada, United States and several other countries around the world. The thinking is that because hemp CBD does not get the user “high” it is considered a health and wellness product similar to vitamins. Benefits of CBD CBD has been shown to be effective on a wide array of symptomology. CBD provides relief from pain, inflammation, nausea, stress and anxiety. It may also help in the management of more severe disorders such [...]

NOT ALL CBD IS CREATED EQUAL: WHAT TO LOOK FOR

We all need to be aware that all the CBD brands in the sector are not equal. So, self-education is pretty crucial if you want to buy a CBD product. Now, CBD is legal in so many states and different countries. Because of this, so many companies started to create their products. However, quality is not the same for all of the products. Consumers have to be aware of and educated enough when they buy CBD products. CBD Extraction CBD can be extracted from both the hemp and cannabis plants, although hemp-based products are the only available products being sold outside of a Licensed Producer (LP). CBD extraction is an expensive and complicated process, with the two main avenues for extraction being CO2 and ethanol extraction. CO2 Extraction CO2 extraction looks like a crazy science experiment. Hemp plants are exposed to different temperatures and pressures to isolate CBD and other cannabinoids such as terpenes and flavonoids. The set-up for this type of extraction is budget-busting, as it requires expensive equipment and a large space for set-up. The results of CO2 extraction produce isolated cannabinoids, such as CBD, with 90% efficacy. This is not a good method for full-spectrum or large-volume production. Ethanol Extraction Ethanol extraction involves submerging the hemp plant in high grade ethanol, which extracts a full-spectrum of cannabinoids, including terpenes and flavonoids. Ethanol extraction is less expensive and is widely used for large scale production of full-spectrum CBD products. CBD Living’s Nanotechnology CBD Living uses a proprietary extraction [...]

NANOTECHNOLOGY AND CBD

Nanotechnology has great importance when it comes to CBD products. Some CBD companies use Nanotechnology to create their products. Before you buy a product, you should educate yourself and check the brand if they use this technology in their products. What is nanotechnology in CBD? In simple terms, nanotechnology is the scientific process used to create more easily absorbed particles of CBD. It may sound easy, but it is a highly scientific process that occurs on the molecular level. In this process, scientists extract CBD from hemp plants and then create nanoparticles, which are significantly smaller than what was originally extracted. These particles are so small that they can pass through the bloodstream much easier, creating a product with better bioavailability (bioavailability refers to the amount of CBD actually absorbed by the body, as opposed to excreted as waste). Anubhav Pratap Singh, PhD, is an assistant professor of food processing at the University of British Columbia. When referring to nanotechnology he has said,  “As the particles get smaller and smaller, the microparticles still behave very similarly to the macroparticles, but as we reduce the particles to a few hundred nanometers, some properties of the particles are completely different than the old particles…[for instance], they can pass through gaps that they were unable to [pass through] before. So we try to take advantage of this in different forms.” Dr. Singh confirms that cannabinoid nanotechnology hasn’t been widely studied, but he says much research is being done right now, and the results look [...]

CBD AND PREGNANCY: WHAT DOES RESEARCH SAY?

Pregnancy is not easy for every woman. So that is why some of the pregnant women tries to find a way to reduce their pain during the pregnancy. Also, they have to be careful when they take any medicine as the side effect can cause more problems than a normal person. At this moment, CBD has not been proved as an efficient medicine. However, there are some reports about it. One study performed on women from Jamaica showed that high cannabinoid consumption in pregnant mothers produced better test results in children measured at 3 months old. The study concluded that although test scores were better in children of heavy cannabinoid users, there was likely a social and cultural component at play, rather than the effects of cannabinoids use during pregnancy. However, it was concluded that there were no negative side effects for mothers who used cannabinoids during pregnancy. If you are debating whether or not to use cannabinoids during pregnancy, speak to your licensed healthcare professional. They will be able to guide you to making the smartest decision for you and your family. CBD as a Muscle Relaxant There is a study published in the Journal of Reproduction that utilized synthetic CBD on cells outside the human body to look at their role in managing contractions. The research, completed in 2010, concluded that CBD helps with oxytocin-induced uterine contractions. While this is not a human study, or even a solid case study, this study is paving the way for future studies on human subjects. [...]

THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT: WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

CBD and THC come from the Hemp plant. Today, CBD is used mainly to reduce health-related symptoms. Like, anxiety, depression, ADHD, stress, and more. Rather than healing the problem, it helps to restore homeostasis to neurological and immunological pathways. There are two forms of CBD, one of them is isolated CBD, and the other one is full-spectrum products. The Endocannabinoid System The endocannabinoid system is found in all mammals and is responsible for regulating important functions in the body, such as sleep, appetite, sex drive, and mood. Cannabinoids act on CB1 and CB2 receptors found all over the body. CB1 receptors can be found in the brain and nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found throughout the immune system and related organs. Other compounds found in the cannabis and hemp plants, such as terpenes, also act on endocannabinoid receptors in a similar way and work to regulate homeostasis. What is the Entourage Effect?  The Entourage Effect refers to the synergistic action of different cannabinoids, flavonoids, fatty acids, and terpenes when acting on receptors in the endocannabinoid system. When multiple components of the cannabis or hemp plants act on CB1 and CB2 receptors, stronger effects are produced. Many CBD products on the market today are isolated compounds, meaning that they contain only one or two cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC. Full-spectrum compounds include multiple cannabinoids, as well as other compounds from the plant such as terpenes and fatty-acids. It is important to understand the product that you are buying. CBD [...]
