Lisa Hamilton, a jeweler and doula in Brooklyn, NY, knows about the side effects. She recently tried CBD for the shoulder pain that plagued her five years after an accident. Her doctor certified that she was in chronic pain, which under New York State law allowed her to buy from a state dispensary. One Friday, she swallowed two 10-mg capsules, the amount recommended at the dispensary, then took another two on Saturday. “By Sunday, it felt like I’d gotten hit by a truck. Every muscle and joint ached,” Hamilton says. She cut back to one pill a day the following week, but still felt hungover. She stopped after that.
Because PharmaHemp’s first business is that of a supplier of raw materials, many of the micro brands you may have come across in Europe and beyond maybe white-labelling PharmaHemp’s CBD oil; in other words, they put their own stamp (branding and packaging) on PharmaHemp’s formulas or requested bespoke formulas. Why not just take it directly from the source? We like dealing with the main supplier directly, particularly in the case of PharmaHemp, who already has a very strong brand identity and ethos. We match their prices and import their products regularly to have the freshest batches of their stock available. Visit the PharmaHemp collection.

Secondly, you’ll need to know how to use CBD oil. You can use CBD tincture for weight loss. CBD tincture is usually administered sublingually or under your tongue. You would put a few drops there and allow it to absorb a little before swallowing. How much CBD you need will depend on the concentration of the tincture you purchased, your body weight, and a few other factors. You will need to make sure you read your particular brand of CBD oil directions to maximize your results. Some other CBD tincture benefits are that it can be put into capsules and taken as a pill, and it can also be added to a food or beverage if you don’t like the taste.
This method proved successful for years, but high-strength concentrates would sometimes crystallise and clog the very small orifice through which the oil was to be delivered. Recognising the issue and the fact that most customers needed a higher dose to be delivered quickly, CannabiGold further developed its packaging to launch a side nozzle. This pump can deliver a higher dose of the oil (4 times what it used to) in one go and do it very easily under the tongue, without having to use a mirror to ensure one is getting the right number of drops. The easy dropper technology has boosted the good reputation of the already popular cylinder bottles because they’re easy and safe to use wherever you go with no leaking and a very convenient pocket size. Each of their 12g bottles now contains 100 pumps (full doses) of CBD, making it the easiest and most convenient system available, truly suitable for all use, including travel. Visit the CannabiGold collection.
A survey of patients seen in a tertiary epilepsy center found that 21% of patients admitted to using marijuana in the last year, and 24% of patients believed marijuana to be effective for their seizures (10). While interesting, this anecdotal observation does not rise to the level of evidence needed to evaluate a potential new therapeutic modality.
The CB1 receptors are mostly present in the brain, but some are located throughout your body. These receptors deal with movement and coordination, emotions, thinking, memories, pain, mood, appetite, and other function. The CB2 receptors are mostly in the immune system. They affect pain and inflammation. CBD works in two ways. It attaches itself to these receptors while stimulating the body to produce more cannabinoids on its own naturally. Amazingly, CBD assists the body in learning to heal itself.
Hemptouch is a small family company from Slovenia specialising in topicals, namely natural creams and ointments that are CBD-rich and support skin health. Co-founder Silvija Špehar has a passion for natural skincare and saw the potential of CBD for topical use in synergetic formulas rich in essential oils and organic ingredients. When Hemptouch launched in 2014, Silvija’s formulas soon became popular via word of mouth and today has grown to become one of the most influential European CBD skincare brands. Widely retailed in the UK, Hemptouch offers the guarantee of overseeing the entire production process - from the growing of Cannabis Sativa L. in their own fields to the formulation and manufacturing of their products for topical use. Hemptouch also supplies a medium-strength 15% extract in an olive oil base. If you’re looking for quality CBD products from an ethical, small, European manufacturer, you’ll like Hemptouch.
 Arterial Ischemic Stroke occurs when blood flow in an artery to the brain is blocked due to narrowness of the artery or the formation of a blood clot. Neonatal (i.e. newborn) Arterial Ischemic Stroke grimly means there is a condition specific to infants. Woefully little is known about NAIS, but it can certainly lead to lifelong disabilities and/or brain injury. Currently, there is no effective treatment.
The reason so many people are interested in cannabis products that don’t make them high, proponents say, is that CBD helps with everything from pain and nausea to rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, Crohn’s disease, and dementia. CBD is anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, antibacterial, immunosuppressive, and more, says Joseph Cohen, DO, a cannabis doctor in Boulder, CO.
Cannabidiol has become a very popular supplement, but very few stores adhere to strict selection criteria to ensure the highest standards and purest extracts. These criteria warrants that the edibles, tinctures and sprays from the brands we stock are full spectrum, containing over 400 active organic hemp molecules, including CBDa, CBC, CBG, CBN, terpenes, alkanes, amino acids, aldehydes, ketones, omegas, flavonoids, and glycosides.
Scam CBD sellers tend to manufacture low-grade oils via ethanol (or other solvent-based) extraction, in what is little better than trying to do it yourself in your basement. The result is a liquid that contains a little CBD (along with some other cannabinoids and terpenes), but not in the quantities needed to be effective in terms of any legitimate medicinal function. Moreover, these solvent-based extracts can contain unnecessary and potentially harmful components — after all, scam artists are not going to reveal the REAL ingredients, are they?

When the founders of Love CBD, Phil and Dan Culbertson, saw the success of CBD oil in the USA, they saw an opportunity for launching a CBD business in the UK. This family-run business from Newmarket, Suffolk, realised that many of the CBD oils available in the UK at that time (in 2014) were of substandard quality and decided to become CBD connoisseurs and put together blends with what they considered to be the best hemp strains out there.
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.
