Thankfully this doesn’t apply to me personally, but studies have shown that CBD oil can be very beneficial to those who suffer from Diabetes. It does this by decreasing insulin resistance. The exact science behind this is still being researched, but some scientists believe that it is related to a cannabinoid called THCV, which has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity.
There are more than 80 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, with THC being the primary one, followed by CBD. However, in the hemp plant, which is a different strain of the species Cannabis sativa, CBD is the main active ingredient, and THC is barely present, making its use and legality more widespread. The reason that CBD is such an effective form of support for human health is due to the body’s endogenous cannabinoid system. This regulatory structure of the body has millions of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system, which react not only to plant-derived cannabinoids (such as hemp and marijuana) but also to natural cannabinoids produced within our body. When hemp oil is used and processed by the body, it is effectively boosting the function of the endocannabinoid system, helping our body regulate itself in many different ways.
Biopurus features a large range of concentrates, from the 5% CBD whole-plant extract to the strongest 30% CBD oil. The only caveat with this whole-plant extract (which is beyond full spectrum) is that it has a stronger, thicker texture than a regular CBD oil, and needs to be stored in an upright position to avoid any leakage. A Biopurus extract is not suitable for travelling or bringing along to the commute, but if you’re happy to keep it in your cupboard and have it before breakfast and dinner, in our opinion, this is by far the best range of organic CBD oils you can get.
Correcting a calorie excess with a calorie deficit sometimes works for weight loss, but it can be difficult. First of all, reducing calories leaves people feeling hungry, which can be incredibly uncomfortable. Second of all, weight gain can cause changes to hormone levels and balance, metabolic patterns, inflammation status, and balance within the endocannabinoid system.
Sub-lingual CBD drops have helped me enormously with sleeping and with radiation damage pain. I have a cancer that spread from the pelvic area to my sacrum and sciatic nerve and whilst the chemo and radiotherapy saved my life I have been taking MST (morphine derivative) for nerve pain ever since. My tumours are presently all quiet and last March I decided I wanted to stop taking the pain relief drugs, fearing dementia. CBD oil was recommended by my son who has arthritis and, for me, it really works. It’s so good to read an article that isn’t put out by a CBD sales site – I wish it could be properly prescribed and regulated (I’m in the UK) in order to have confidence with purity and dosage.

Unfortunately due to the disappointing and down right inaccurate position of the federal government in classifying Cannabis as a schedule one drug, most research institutions risk federal funding if they conduct real research on Cannabis. This has dramatically limited the potential for real research by real scientists to be conducted. That research is critical to better understanding the multitude of therapeutic effects of the various chemical constituents found in Cannabis.
Fat cells in your body take on the identity of being “white colored” fats or brown and beige colored fats. Your body’s white colored fats will be the ones that will store energy while the brown fats will be the ones to burn the fat. CBD helps aid your body in this process by turning more of your white colored fats brown, amplifying your body’s ability to burn fat.
The increased activity of the pancreas in an attempt to secrete additional insulin can cause inflammation throughout the gland. That chronic inflammation can actually destroy the beta cells which are the sites that secrete insulin. This downward spiral diminishes the body’s ability to make insulin at all – a dangerous path that can lead to diabetes.
CBD and other cannabinoids attach to specific receptors in the body found within what is referred to as the endocannabinoid system. In fact, up until recently, scientists didn’t know that these cannabinoids are actually naturally produced in humans and most animals. Some researchers speculate that an endocannabinoid deficiency may be the cause of many disorders and conditions. When CBD is introduced into the body, it binds to receptor cells called CB1 and CB2 receptors.
PharmaHemp is another gem of a company to come from tiny, green Slovenia. Their hemp fields are also open air, organic and drop-dead gorgeous. They are based in micro-locations in Eastern Slovenia, the Gorenjska region and Croatia. Areas that traditionally grew cannabis before its prohibition. All these locations continue to grow organically. Founded by Andrej Susnik in 2011, engineer and entrepreneur who has worked in the field of cannabis extraction since 1964, PharmaHemp is a solid European player with the leverage of experience and a great focus on organic production. By using supercritical CO2 extraction, PharmaHemp ensures that all their extracts are full spectrum, i.e. containing not only CBD (cannabidiol), but also other cannabinoids, terpenes, amino acids, essential fatty acids (omega oils), bioflavonoids and many other phytonutrients. Their cutting-edge production facilities are matched with very slick packaging and design.
