Alzheimer’s Disease: Can CBD Help?

Of all the potential issues that come with getting older, one of the most terrifying to consider is neural degradation, specifically Alzheimer’s disease. A mental condition in which memory and cognitive ability slowly fail to the point of an inability to function autonomously, Alzheimer’s disease is an unfortunate reality for an overwhelming amount of the populace. Recent studies indicate that 5.7 million Americans are currently living with the disease, with 1 in 10 seniors over the age of 65 being affected. Changes in motor and memory function and even personality can be scary for both the patient and their friends and family, and the lack of any cure or even a specific designated cause add to the terror of the disease. How can Alzheimer’s patients be helped? With so many being affected so much, it is natural to turn to any and all medication for aid, which is where CBD oil is introduced. Derived from the marijuana plant but lacking any THC (or the psychotropic properties it causes), CBD oil is currently working [...]

With the continuing influx of CBD into both medical and popular culture, it should come as little surprise that the legendary oil has begun to spread into other forms of relaxation. Lauded for delivering the benefits of marijuana without the psychotropic effects, CBD oil has been shown to help with anxiety, muscle pain, and dozens of other conditions. Now that the spread is in full swing, a new market for CBD-based drinks is exploding; from New York to Los Angeles, bartenders and patrons alike are clamoring for the fresh twist on existing beverages. What Kinds of Drinks Are There? The benefits of adding CBD to your drink of choice are numerous, both from a comfort and a culinary perspective.

Additionally, multiple users have reported that the presence of CBD actually helps mitigate the effects of the inevitable hangover. While it doesn’t destroy [...]

Researchers to Test if CBD Calms Essential Tremor

By |2019-02-25T21:30:06-07:00September 21st, 2018|CBD and ECS, CBD NEWS, CBD Oil|3 Comments

It’s thought that over 7 million people in the United States live with Essential Tremor (ET), roughly 2.2% of the population. And currently, there is limited research on treatments for ET; there is no one medication to treat the condtion. Beta blockers, anti-seizure medications, Botox injections, tranquilizers, therapy, and—in severe cases—deep brain stimulation, are used to treat ET, though each has its limitations. But researchers at UC San Diego’s Center for Medical Cannabis Research may soon learn more about cannabinoids’ effects on ET. The team announced that the DEA had given it the green light to import CBD and THC capsules from a Canadian-based company to conduct its study. The researchers will use high-dose CBD and low-dose THC (20:1, respectively) to determine if the cannabinoids relieve patients’ ET symptoms. CBD Oil Has Been Shown to Improve Numerous Conditions. Ours May Help with Yours. How Essential Tremor Affects the Body Essential tremor is a nervous system disorder that affects the body by generating involuntary shaking. The shaking can manifest in any part of the [...]

CBD Found to Deliver Sustained Anti-Depressant Effects

By |2019-02-25T21:34:26-07:00September 5th, 2018|CBD and Depression, CBD and ECS, CBD NEWS, CBD Oil|0 Comments

Cannabidiol has developed a reputation for being a cure-all, a miracle drug of sorts. While CBD has been shown to improve dozens of conditions, the limited research into how CBD affects these conditions leaves our understanding of its interaction with the body a bit blurred. This is especially true for CBD and depression. But researchers in São Paulo State and their Danish colleagues have discovered a breakthrough in CBD’s impact on depression—a breakthrough that drastically decreases the time it takes for those with depression to experience relief from their symptoms. Evidence is Mounting that CBD Improves Symptoms of Depression. Our Hemp CBD Oil May Do the Same. CBD Shows Quick, Sustained Effects on Depression Many people suffering from depression are prescribed different types of anti-depressants, most of which can take weeks to improve patients’ symptoms. But just 60% those on anti-depressants experience relief, leading many to discover they have treatment-resistant depression, a form of depression that does not respond to multiple treatments and is present in nearly two-thirds of those with major depressive [...]

Study Finds CBD May Help Offset Psychosis Symptoms

By |2019-02-25T23:25:15-07:00September 2nd, 2018|CBD and Mental Health, CBD and Schizophrenia, CBD NEWS|0 Comments

While not a disorder itself, psychosis is characterized by a set of symptoms of mental illnesses. These symptoms result in strange or bizarre thinking, uncommon perceptions of sight and sound, actions, and emotions. Psychosis’ severity is improved (or worsened) by environmental factors, including drug use and stress. Though the National Institute of Mental Health notes that, while there is no concrete number of people who experience their first episode of psychosis each year, incidence data from other countries suggest that roughly 100,000 Americans experience their first onset of psychosis annually. While there is currently no one cure for psychosis, researchers have recently found that CBD can improve psychosis symptoms by impacting three areas of the brain. CBD Has Been Shown to Improve a Number of Mental Health Conditions. Our Hemp CBD Oil may do the Same. How CBD is Thought to Improve Symptoms of Psychosis Researchers at King’s College London have found that 600mg of an oral dose of CBD can improve the onset of psychosis. The small study included 33 participants who [...]

Study: CBD Oil Significantly Improves Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy

By |2019-02-25T23:21:13-07:00August 12th, 2018|CBD NEWS, CBD Oil|0 Comments

A team of researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham has just revealed its findings from a study on how CBD oil impacts symptoms of those with treatment-resistant epilepsy. The team found that, among study participants who were treated with CBD oil, seizure frequency and other symptoms improved significantly. Moreover, CBD oil was shown to reduce both severity and frequency of seizures. The study’s findings add to a wealth of growing knowledge on how CBD oil impacts epilepsy—as well as when the world’s first CBD-based drug for treating epileptic seizures is set to enter the market in the not-so-distant future. Evidence is Mounting that CBD Oil Helps Improve Epilepsy. Our Hemp CBD Oil May do the Same. CBD Improved Conditions when No Other Treatment Would Patients who participated in the study were shown to have not benefited from previous therapies that sought to improve frequency and severity of epileptic seizures—known as intractable epilepsy. First begun in 2015 after the passage of what is referred to as Carly’s Law, researchers at the University [...]

Study Finds 80% of Children with Autism Saw Improvement with CBD

An Israeli team of researchers has found that high-CBD cannabis was effective in treating 80% of children with autism involved in the study. The study’s publication is forthcoming, and will be published in the journal Neurology. The children who were included in the study suffered from autism that had not shown improvement with other medications. The children were given the 20-to-1 CBD-THC medication (levels at which are comparable for many CBD oils and CBD products in the United States) for seven months, where roughly 4-in-5 saw marked improvement of their condition. CBD Medications and Products like our Hemp CBD Oil Has Been Shown to Help Treat a Number of Conditions. Autism Could be the Next. Promising Research for CBD Treating Autism Little is known about how cannabidiol may impact autism—which is why the study’s findings are so promising. The study relied on the participants of the children's parents as well. When the treatment period was completed, parents filled out surveys to report on any changes to their child’s condition. Researchers wanted to know [...]

CBD Could Soon be Sold as a Supplement in Mexico

By |2019-02-25T23:33:50-07:00August 5th, 2018|CBD and Pain, CBD NEWS, CBD Oil|0 Comments

Rather than being regulated like and made available as a prescription drug, Mexico is weighing whether or not CBD will be sold alongside other supplements—like vitamins, minerals, essential oils, and other common items customers may expect to find in their local homeopathic or health store.  The move comes shortly after rumblings of cannabis legalization were first mentioned at a press conference in January of this this year. And, on June 19, 2017 Mexico’s President, Enrique Peña Nieto, signed into law a bill that allows for the cultivation, production, and consumption of medical cannabis and cannabis products that are under 1% THC, the compound in cannabis that causes a “high.” The law spells potentially big news for those who need access to CBD oil and other cannabidiol products, as most CBD products are under the 1% THC cutoff. No Buzz, No High. Our Hemp CBD Oil Offers Natural Relaxation without the Intoxication Legalizing CBD and Medical Cannabis In the United States, CBD oil and other CBD products have for years existed in legal grey [...]

CBD, Chemotherapy Combination Tripled Pancreatic Cancer Survival Rate in Mice

By |2019-02-25T23:41:35-07:00August 2nd, 2018|CBD and Pain, CBD NEWS, CBD Oil|0 Comments

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer, claiming 80% of lives affected by any stage of the cancer after the first year—and only 5% survival rate after the fifth year. This expectancy rate has remained more or less the same for nearly half a century; there are few treatments available that can completely remedy pancreatic cancer. This is why a breakthrough from researchers at Queen Mary University of London is a potential godsend for those suffering from forms of pancreatic cancer. In a study conducted on mice, researchers found that when cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, was combined with chemotherapy treatment, the mice survived nearly three times longer than did mice treated by only chemotherapy. The findings complement previous research results that revealed that CBD helps curb nausea and vomiting—two common side effects of chemotherapy. Whether You’re Fighting Pain or Undergoing Chemotherapy, Our Hemp CBD Oil May Ease Your Symptoms How CBD May Help Cancer Survival Rates Beyond CBD’s known pain-relieving properties, it has been shown to offer [...]

Georgia to Allow Low-THC CBD Oil for PTSD, Other Conditions

By |2019-04-04T20:42:07-06:00July 24th, 2018|CBD and Autism, CBD and Pain, CBD NEWS, CBD Oil|0 Comments

On July 1st, Georgia expanded its strict medical cannabis laws to include additional conditions. House Bill 65 expanded use for those suffering from PTSD and “intractable pain,” among other conditions. In 2015, Georgia passed one of the strictest laws that allowed prescribed CBD oil to be used for those who suffer from seizures, advanced Alzheimer’s, late-stage cancer, and a few other conditions. HB 65 expands the 2015 law, making it legal for those with a prescription to possess up to 20 ounces of low-THC cannabis oil, including CBD oil. Georgia is among 29 other states that allow for medical cannabis prescription, and is included among 17 other states with laws pertaining specifically to CBD oil. No Grey Area Here. Our Industrial Hemp CBD Oil is Under 0.3% THC More Georgians Support Medical Cannabis, CBD Oil Access In January of 2018, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed poll results that show that that 75% of Georgians support expanding Georgia’s limited medical cannabis program—including hemp CBD oil. The poll included changing the law to allow for harvesting [...]
