Several weeks after a hysterectomy last spring, Bo Roth was suffering from exhaustion and pain that kept her on the couch much of the day. The 58-year-old Seattle speech coach didn’t want to take opioid pain-killers, but Tylenol wasn’t helping enough. Roth was intrigued when women in her online chat group enthused about a cannabis-derived oil called cannabidiol (CBD) that they said relieved pain without making them high. So Roth, who hadn’t smoked weed since college but lived in a state where cannabis was legal, walked into a dispensary and bought a CBD tincture.
Obesity and diabetes often result in your body developing insulin resistance, which triggers your body to store more fat. It’s likely a leftover trait from the Stone Age when humans would have to eat and store a lot of fat in the good season to be able to survive the harsh winters. However, in today’s society, where we have an abundance of food, it can be detrimental to our health.
Thank you for your questions. Marijuana and hemp are two extremely different strains of the same cannabis sativa plant that have been bred over thousands of years to have entirely different purposes. (Hemp is not the male version of the marijuana plant.) They both contain CBD. Hemp only contains CBD whereas marijuana contains CBD and perhaps a hundred or so other chemicals with a variety of functions, such as THC, the molecule that makes people “high”. Any medicine can have different effects on different people. For example, Benadryl makes some people sleepy yet can make others wide-awake. So, it is not inconsistent for a particular medicine to cause a symptom in one person and to help alleviate it in another. So while many people experience relaxation with CBD, so people do experience the “paradoxical” effect of irritability.
There are thousands of unique varieties of hemp. The cultivars used for CBD oil contain significantly higher concentrations of CBD than others. Using these uniquely potent plants, it is possible to extract cannabis oil that contains significant levels of cannabidiol, as well as essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
While CBD may be effective at treating some conditions, the exaggeration of claims results in a situation where it is bound to be called snake oil by some, and reasonably so. To be taken seriously, proponents need to start being real about what it has been shown to treat and what it has not. And we really must not allow one-off studies, rat studies, or anecdotes to be counted as real evidence.
It makes no sense to me that something that helps with anxiety has an irritability side effect – as a lot of my anxiety is co-mingled naturally with irritability. Further, I have noticed none of these side effects, given that if you become fatigued or sleepy, you adjust dose the next day. So I don’t call that a side effect – rather – an effect of taking too much.
To make matters more confusing, nine states (including California, Washington, and Colorado) let residents buy cannabis-based products with or without THC. Nearly two dozen other “medical marijuana states” allow the sale of cannabis, including capsules, tinctures, and other items containing CBD or THC, at licensed dispensaries to people whose doctors have certified that they have an approved condition (the list varies by state but includes chronic pain, PTSD, cancer, autism, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis). Sixteen more states legalized CBD for certain diseases.
However, there is an exception when it comes to the industrial hemp. In almost all states, one can ship freely, from one state to another, industrial hemp without worrying about breaking the law. It is legal to process, and transport industrial hemp provided it complies to the legal laws put in place. Industrial hemp is a product that is derived from Cannabis Sativa plant and contains not more than 0.3% of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. CBD also falls in this category.
There are many additional benefits offered by CBD Oil to bodybuilders. It can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, acheive better quality sleep and rest (important for muscle recovery and repair), increase appetite, help with strengthening bones and joints, manage stress, anxiety and depression, and (common for many bodybuilders) reduce constipation. Because CBD is a modulator it will work through the CB1 and CB2 brain receptors to respond to imbalances in the body systems.

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.
Protein intake is important for bodybuilding and hemp seed protein offers a lot of benefits. Most vegetable and grain derived proteins are ‘incomplete’ which means they lack one or more of the amino acids. Complete proteins are generally only found in animal products. Hemp protein, like hemp oil, also contains all 20 amino acids including the nine amino acids that our bodies don’t produce. The ratio of amino acid content is important in defining the quality of protein. Hemp seeds contain a ratio of amino acids closer than that of almost any other plant to the quality of animal-based proteins.
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.
It’s important to remember, though, that these areas of study are still very new and in their early stages. This makes it hard to predict just how far their reach and impact will be. Combined with lifestyle and dietary changes, prescribed cannabinoid use will very likely be a pivotal intervention in the future of obesity and diabetes management and recovery.
If your weight loss regimen entails a lot of hard and intense workouts, using marijuana might not be your first choice to make it easier. However, you’d be surprised by how many of CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits could be right for you. If you’re dealing with muscle soreness after a workout, having a strong and natural anti-inflammatory added to your post-gym smoothie could help you recover faster.
Also, please note that CBD should NOT be misunderstood as a miracle cure — and no reputable CBD seller or manufacturer should ever claim otherwise. Furthermore, if you are using CBD for weight loss purposes, don’t expect it to work if you eat fast food three times a day and your exercise routine consists of struggling to twist the cap off your bottle of beer!
"What is CBD oil" may be your first question, but the real question we have to answer is, "What does CBD oil do?" CBD interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). First discovered in the late 1980's, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body's homeostasis, or general state of balance. Like an acrobat on a highwire, as the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system "connects" by mediating our body's reaction to keep us level.
When you get home after your session at the gym, CBD products also help with sleep and reduce anxiety levels, so you can rest more easily. (2) Essentially, CBD products have many of the “chill out” effects associated with recreational and medical marijuana, but without the high. This means that you can use them throughout the day as it suits your plans.
No, that sounds like a fine theory, but compared to most other civilized nations, we actually are a top executioner as well; and where there isn’t execution, sentences are extremely heavy in the USA, increasing over time as people clamored for more proactive justice, mostly out of media induced hysteria. In the case of Saudi Arabia, I would say it has more to do with the population being more religious, tbh.
CBD Oil/THC is the ANSWER.

If people would get as involved with such deep investigation into their own human growth and potential rather than getting into arguments about what part of a plant a chemical comes from then this world would truly be a happier place and better for our children. Come on people be nice to eachother, do some deep spiritual healing without drugs. Use plants for healing instead of “not dealing with your own issues” hypnotherapy is side effect free and has permanent results
I have read about studies from Europe (not very specific I know) that suggest CBD might work better for some people if combined with some level of THC. Also, the getting high part can be helpful, although not for everybody, of course. A second point – I don’t hear very much about CBD eliminating or almost eliminating pain for people with severe pain. Helpful, but, so far at least, it doesn’t seem that CBDs can replace opioids or substantially reduce pain for all chronic pain patients. Maybe someday.
