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.
While overstimulation of the CB1 receptor may lead to symptoms such as high blood pressure and abnormally high cholesterol levels, CBD is a CB1 antagonist, so it is not likely to cause such issues. Furthermore, the World Health Organization has recently issued a global report on CBD, claiming that it has a good safety profile and minimal adverse public health effects.
Hemp laws have not changed yet, they may like the states later but so far they have not. People are sick, in the states they found so much junk from non-regulater or illegal online cbd products like cough syrup. The biggest issue with government oils comes from the carrier oil simply because pestisides are allowed in higher amounts on foods you eat but luckily no one vapes oil, well anyone using it properly. Vegetable glycerin luckily inst used in any oils, mainly grape seed and medium chained triglyceride coconut oils.
Moreover, Murray Mittleman, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, explained to Time Magazine in 2013 that weed users had lower fasting insulin levels and were less resistant to insulin produced by the body. He was referring to research from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which analyzed 4,600 men and women over a five year period from 2005 to 2010. 48% of them used marijuana at least once in their lives, and 12% were current weed users.
Success stories like Oliver’s are everywhere, but there’s not a lot of data to back up those results. That’s because CBD comes from cannabis and, like nearly all other parts of the plant, is categorized by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as a Schedule 1 drug—the most restrictive classification. (Others on that list: heroin, Ecstasy, and peyote.) This classification, which cannabis advocates have tried for years to change, keeps cannabis-derived products, including CBD, from being properly studied in the U.S.
Hemp derived CBD oil with a THC level OVER 3% is legal in Canada with a prescription, from a licensed supplier or dispensary. CBD oil with a THC level BELOW .3% is legal in Canada, for personal use only, without a prescription. However, it is not approved for resale without an NPN from Health Canada. So you can NOT sell it, unless they have a number. So... if you want it without a prescription... you have to import it from a US company. I like this one...
CBD (cannabidiol) is a Cannabinoid – a molecular compound found in the cannabis plant. There are 85 known cannabinoids and they have a variety of effects on the body, particularly around mood, sleep, anxiety and appetite. The research is largely in its infancy, but so far the overwhelming evidence is that there are a lot of recovery benefits to CBD oil.
While overstimulation of the CB1 receptor may lead to symptoms such as high blood pressure and abnormally high cholesterol levels, CBD is a CB1 antagonist, so it is not likely to cause such issues. Furthermore, the World Health Organization has recently issued a global report on CBD, claiming that it has a good safety profile and minimal adverse public health effects.
Unfortunately, THC needs to be removed from its schedule 1 status before we can study the full relationship and extent of the entourage effect. The line of thinking is there exists a perfect ratio between THC, CBD, and the rest of the phytocannabinoids — this ratio could only cause a slight and manageable high, or still none at all — high levels of CBD will counteract THC’s psychoactive properties.

CBD Isolate is the purest supplement available. It’s a 99% pure CBD supplement derived from hemp oil. Despite its concentration, CBD isolate effects are similar to other CBD concentrates, and it can be used in a variety of ways. It can be consumed itself, added to foods and beverages, or vaporized. You can also add it to other CBD products to increase their potency.

The endocannabinoid system appears to have an essential role in regulating basic human functions like sleep, eating, metabolism, and more. When this system is not functioning correctly, weight gain can occur. CBD helps to restore homeostasis to the cells of the body and can be very useful in reducing fat accumulation and subsequent health risks related to excess body weight.
CBD oil is good for ​bodybuilding and muscle growth in the sense that it eases inflammation, helps with muscle recovery, and reduces pain after workouts. This makes it easier for you to increase your muscle mass without putting your body under too much stress. The naturally relaxing and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD help your muscles to recover more quickly.

Our bodies are thought to produce endocannabinoids by the billions every day. “We always thought the ‘runner’s high’ was due to the release of dopamine and endorphins. But now we know the euphoria is also from an endocannabinoid called anandamide,” its name derived from the Sanskrit word for bliss, says Joseph Maroon, MD, clinical professor and vice chairman of neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. We produce these natural chemicals all day, but they fade quickly because enzymes pop up to destroy them. That’s where CBD comes in: By blocking these enzymes, CBD allows the beneficial compounds to linger.
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.

I recently was a guest at a medical marijuana educational event that highlighted the work of researcher Michael Backes. During his presentation he made a statement about CBD that I have never heard anywhere else that CBD is “regulating” (my word) the effects of THC. I asked the Nurse Practitioner at the event, Ivy Lou Hibbitt of Certicann.com, what he meant by that and she said it was her understanding of Michael’s comment that he takes CBD to reduce the psychoactive effects of THC. Has this property of CBD, that it can lessen psychoactive effects, ever been researched elsewhere?

Dr. Cohen has found that chronic conditions including autoimmune diseases and pain syndromes can be helped with a 6-mg under-the-tongue tincture (the fastest delivery system) or a 25-mg capsule taken twice a day. Dosages for topical products like lotions are especially hard to determine—there’s no clarity on how much CBD gets into the system through the skin.
How does CBD oil work? CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in your body. How taking CBD oil for weight loss works involves this system. CBD stimulates different components in your body to help your body break down more fat, it helps burn more calories all the way down to the cellular level, decreases lipid production, suppresses appetite, and increases your metabolism. Currently, there is still a lot to learn about CBD and weight loss, but the results we’ve seen for far go to show that this is a great option for anyone who needs weight loss help.
I use this for my anxiety and for my arthritis. The topical works great for my chronic neck pain. The best way to go is to get your own raw, tested material and use it in whatever form you like. It’s quite easy to make your own extract. This has worked better for me, rather than relying on a purchased, untested product – where some seem to work and others are a waste. But even with those that work, of course the cost is ridiculous and not affordable, thanks to all these corporate-pleasing laws in place, not there for the people – don’t delude yourselves.

A complicated question. Only CBD oil sold by MMPR registered companies is legal for sale inside of Canada. However, this oil is often in low supply and of low quality due to inexperience and a heavily over-regulated federal system that is not conducive to the production of good product at a decent price. Funnily enough, the companies with the most experience and best track record for making quality CBD oil have been those selling their product in Canada’s “grey area” dispensary market, as they have been doing so for over a decade while the federal program has only been allowed to sell concentrates for the passed year.
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.

All in all, current research shows us that we will experience the most significant degree of therapeutic relief when all the cannabinoids and the terpenes —  essential oils that produce the plant’s aromas —  are in the oil. Even adding just a little THC in CBD oil can greatly improve the medical properties because of the phenomenon known as the entourage effect.


Alicia Salazar, a New York state board certified health coach, uses CBD with her clients to maximize their health outcomes. “I don’t look at CBD as a magic bullet for weight loss,” she said. “But CBD along with a healthy diet – one that contains healthy fats, whole grains, grass-fed meat and dairy, and plenty of greens, without processed foods and sugar – sets the tone for a healthy weight. And for some, that can naturally include weight loss.”
What’s all the hype about CBD????. First off I absolutely LOVE CBD oil. The most common questions I get: Is it marijuana? No it doesn’t get you high (no THC). The syringe you use is NOT a shot or an oil you rub on your skin. You put the drops of CBD under your tongue. . CBD oil has a ton of benefits. Research has proven it helps with anxiety & depression, pain reduction and reduces inflammation. In addition to these I have also noticed I feel more calm and less stressed 🤗….in turn I’m able to clear my head, that has helped a ton with my sleep. I’ll do another post soon about friends and family that are seeing benefits of taking CBD. . @gainsinbulk sells their pure CBD oil for $54 with my code BeckyL10 (60 servings). Let me know if you have any questions⬇️
In addition to acting on the brain, CBD influences many body processes. That’s due to the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which was discovered in the 1990s, after scientists started investigating why pot produces a high. Although much less well-known than the cardiovascular, reproductive, and respiratory systems, the ECS is critical. “The ECS helps us eat, sleep, relax, forget what we don’t need to remember, and protect our bodies from harm,” Marcu says. There are more ECS receptors in the brain than there are for opioids or serotonin, plus others in the intestines, liver, pancreas, ovaries, bone cells, and elsewhere.

Another marker of obesity and diabetes includes damage to liver cells. The liver is a major organ in the conversion between stored energy forms and useable energy forms in the body. Overburdening that system, such as with high fructose intake, can have disastrous effects. Inflammation within the liver indicates the onset of dysfunction, and possibly non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Why bother and tell anyone what you’re doing let alone…mailing?? IT’S NOBODY’S BUSINESS PERIOD what you mail. It doesn’t smell, won’t explode or catch fire and is undetectable. So just make sure you do a good job wrapping it so it won’t be bouncing around inside that small shipping box you would be using to ship it where ever you want. You don’t tell anyone and nobody will know. Trust me. There’s lots of things shipped via the USPS that if they knew might get one into trouble. The saving Grace? You’d hardly be the first to do such a thing. Nor will you be the last.

While Hemp CBD oil has skyrocketed in popularity, it will hit the mainstream in 2019 as the few barriers holding it back are going the way of the Dodo. Within the next two to three years, we will see waves of clinical in-vivo research pouring in, and it will be fascinating to see if we discover anything new about the molecules that make up the oil and the plants themselves.
Scott Shannon, MD, assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado, recently sifted through patient charts from his four-doctor practice to document CBD’s effects on anxiety. His study, as yet unpublished, found “a fairly rapid decrease in anxiety scores that appears to persist for months,” he says. But he says he can’t discount a placebo effect, especially since “there’s a lot of hype right now.”
