Can you buy CBD oil on Amazon?

Can you buy CBD oil on Amazon?

The short answer is no. If you search for CBD oil on Amazon you will see a TON of products come up, and wow! those are a lot cheaper than other CBD oils you’ve seen right? The problem is, you’re getting hemp seed oil and not CBD oil. 

While hemp seed oil is good for you, it does not have the same benefits as CBD oil. Amazon does not allow the sale of CBD on their site. 

When looking for a good high quality CBD oil check out the ingredients list. It should have no more than 2 ingredients (3 if there is a flavor added.) CBD BioCare ‘s peppermint flavor ingredients label reads Full Spectrum CBD Oil, Hemp Seed Oil & Natural Flavor. (The natural flavor being organic peppermint extract in this case.) Stay away from products containing Sucralose! (Yuck!) 

As with most products/supplements the fewer ingredients usually means that’s the better choice. Stay educated my friends! 

What’s In Your CBD Oil?

I have been noticing lately a LOT of CBD companies popping up. In one respect that is awesome! It means that more and more people are learning about CBD and what it could do for them. On the other hand, it means that you, the consumer, need to be extra careful when buying CBD oil. 

Are you buying a full spectrum CBD oil? A CBD isolate? Is it actually CBD oil or just hemp seed oil? What are the “other” ingredients in the bottle? Where was the hemp grown? Where was it manufactured? Is the oil tested by an independent 3rd party lab? Why does this matter? 

First let’s look at why a full spectrum CBD oil is the best. Full spectrum means that the oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant. Not just the leaves, not just the stalk, not just the flowers, but the WHOLE plant. This means that you get the medicinal benefits that the whole plant has to offer. Cannabis has over 100 active cannabinoids aside from CBD. Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system that connects with these cannabinoids. This is a big part of why hemp and cannabis are becoming more well know for their healing abilities. It just makes sense that if you have all of those cannabinoids present your CBD oil is going to work better. 

The CBD industry is largely unregulated so therefore you need to do your research on where it came from. Was it grown in the USA? Manufactured in an FDA approved facility? Is it grown organically? What other ingredients are they putting in the oil? Is there a COA (Certificate of Analysis) readily available for you to read? 

Let’s talk about what else is in the CBD oil you’re using. CBD must have a carrier oil so it can be absorbed properly. What is that carrier oil? Is it hemp seed oil? Coconut oil? Sunflower oil? Olive oil? It just makes sense that the best carrier oil would be hemp seed oil. Why mess with a good thing right? What are the other ingredients? I have seen a lot of oils out there that actually have sucralose in them! What? Why would you ruin a great product by putting a chemical sweetener in there? In my opinion, the more ingredients in a product, the more likely it is that you’re getting things you don’t necessarily want or need. 

New Moon CBD has partnered with CBD BioCare to bring you the highest quality CBD on the market today. CBD BioCare regular flavor CBD oil has just 2 ingredients, full spectrum CBD oil and hemp seed oil. The peppermint flavor has 3, full spectrum CBD oil, hemp seed oil and natural peppermint extract.

BUYING THE RIGHT CBD OIL

For our purposes we are going to explain how to buy CBD oil because consumers are being misled or they do not understand the difference before they buy and then they are often unhappy with the results. Why are they unhappy? Were they looking for CBD and they bought a product that was labeled hemp oil and it was really hemp seed oil? If they were hoping for pain relief it is simply not going to happen with hemp seed oil. But the retailer can call it whatever they want, so this is why it is so important to know what you are buying. What the retailer can not mess with are the ingredients. But as you may be finding out, reading the ingredient list can be tricky. By law it has to state what is in the bottle. But this too is somewhat of a grey area.

UNDERSTANDING WHAT IT STATES ON THE BOTTLE

This is CBD BioCare’s 750mg CBD oil ingredient list. You may think it would read, CBD or cannabidiol, but that is not the whole story. It has 30 mg of phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil, (PCR). This means it has 30 mg of high CBD hemp oil per serving that is extracted from the whole plant and it contains all cannabinoids within that plant. Of that 30 mg of full spectrum oil, 25% is pure CBD. This is the best case scenario because you have all of the cannabinoids working together. If you have an oil with 99% CBD isolate it would be less effective.  In addition, they mix their  full spectrum CBD oils with hemp seed oil resulting in a 100% hemp plant product. In addition, the omega fatty acids in the hemp seed help with the absorption of cannabinoids in your system.

CBD BioCare’s hemp is grown in Kentucky at one of the only federally registered facilities in the United States and manufactured at a facility in Miami, FL. Their manufacturer is registered as a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice).  CBD BioCare tests their full spectrum CBD oil from plant to product. It is tested at the farm, during extraction, when it arrives at the manufacturing facility and once again when it arrives at CBD BioCare.  Scan here to see their COA. 

New Moon CBD has done the research for you, but please, do your own. Know what you’re buying.

What Makes CBD BioCare the Best Choice for Your CBD Oil?

My CBD Experience

Hi! My name is Lori. I wanted to let you know what CBD oil has done for me personally. 

My friend Stacey and her husband Matthew founded CBD BioCare in 2017.  Stacey came to me and asked me to try the Collagen Retinol face cream. I have used high end skin care trying to fight the aging process for years, so Stacey thought I’d be a good one to try it out. I had absolutely no idea what CBD was at the time. I can tell you that I fell in LOVE with that face cream! Any time I had tried Retinol in the past it made my skin so dry that I had to quit using it. This product didn’t! It is very moisturizing, (from the CBD oil) so it counteracts that dryness. I could see visible differences in my skin texture and fine lines within 2 weeks!

The more I talked to Stacey about CBD the more intrigued I became. I started doing my own research and decided I wanted to try the CBD oil as well. I had terrible trouble sleeping and thought it might help.

Of course, like a lot of people, I was afraid CBD would make me feel high, or weird. It didn’t at all! (0% THC so you literally CAN’T get high.) The first night that I took CBD oil before bed, was the first night I wasn’t wide awake between 4 and 6 am in years! 

I began taking CBD twice a day. I noticed that my anxiety decreased. As a matter of fact it has stopped anxiety attacks within minutes of me feeling one coming on! I also believe wholeheartedly that it has prevented some from happening at all! After using it for a couple of weeks I also noticed that my back and hands didn’t hurt as much. Come to find out CBD is an excellent anti inflammatory! 

I begged my husband to try it for months before he finally gave in. (Probably just so I’d shut up about it!) He was having terrible anxiety at work. It even started keeping him awake at night. My husband not sleeping? Definitely something wrong! (After all, I’d been listening to him snore between 4 and 6 am for years! ?) I won’t tell you that he is anxiety free at work now, who is? But he no longer wakes up at night worrying about work. He is better able to manage the stress while he’s at work too. He told me that CBD “quiets my mind, and gets rid of the excess noise, so that I can concentrate better while I’m working.”  He’s also using it twice a day and doesn’t miss! He swears by it! He has even turned his equally stressed out coworkers onto CBD. 

I began selling CBD BioCare at my nail salon too. I have many clients who swear by it! I have one who was on opioids for years for her pain. She is now completely off all opioids! She only uses CBD oil in conjunction with our pain balm. Her doctor can’t believe the change! 

In my next blog I will be posting testimonials from my clients so you can read what CBD oil has done for them too!

CANNABIS AND MEMORY

WHAT’S THE CONNECTION?

Cannabis and Memory-What's the Connection?

 August 2, 2018 Cannabis has been around for a very long time. There is documented evidence of cannabis being used as a medicinal herb across different cultures. It’s interesting to note that cannabis has found a special place in ‘The Ebers Papyrus’, one of the oldest finished medical textbook dating back around 1550 BC.

WHAT MAKES IT SO SPECIAL?

Cannabis contains over 400 different chemical compounds out of which around 85 are potent bio-active compounds called cannabinoids. Out of these THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are the two most well-known cannabinoids. These compounds together give the cannabis its magical medicinal properties and the famous ‘high’. THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for the ‘high’, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which is also known to counter the effects of THC thereby reducing the high. THC and CBD are found to engage with the receptors CB1 and CB2 found in the body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS in our body is a large complex network of cell receptors and influence many of our bodily functions such as mood, appetite, sleep, immune system, and pain. The ECS contains cannabis-like compounds, such as- Anandamide and 2-AG which helps in regulating the body’s functions and pain naturally. So when the cannabinoids in the cannabis engage with the receptors of our body it enhances the body’s ability to regulate the pain and inflammation. CBD is a versatile plant-based health compound which is proven to alleviate pain and inflammation and helps in relieving symptoms of many diseases.

IT’S GETTING POPULAR

This has made many patients fighting depression or suffering from ailments like arthritis, cancer, anxiety and many other chronic conditions to shift to cannabis as an alternative treatment or in combination with other prescribed medications. Many modern doctors have also started to prescribe cannabis along with other medications. According to UNODC an estimated 183 million people worldwide used cannabis in 2015 with a number of medical users rising steadily in the U.S.Cannabis can be taken orally, smoked, vaped or used as CBD oil. CBD oil benefits tremendously in arthritis and relieving joint pains. Moreover, raw cannabis seeds are a great source of protein and considered a superfood for various reasons.

CANNABIS AND MEMORY

With so many benefits of cannabis we know how it affects our body, now let’s find out its effect on our memory as well. Looking at the forgetful stoners it seems that cannabis and poor memory are somehow connected. Let us explore this further!

SHORT-TERM EFFECTS OF CANNABIS ON MEMORY:

THC- the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis is responsible for mind-altering effects on the brain giving the user a euphoric effect seems to affect memory in two ways:

  1. Cannabis makes it difficult to encode the memories: Encoding is the crucial first step to create a new memory. Encoding is a biological event beginning with perception through our senses. This perception gets converted into a construct and is stored within the brain which can be recalled later as a short-term or long-term memory. Thus, this event gets hampered under the influence of THC and the user is unable to form new memories.
  2. Makes it difficult to recall short-term memory: Short-term memory also known as working memory is like a ‘post-it-notes’ for the brain. It is basically the ability to remember and process information at the same time. Cannabis is known to affect this working memory while the user is under its influence, and possibly even little after the high wears off.

Fortunately, some studies suggest that many frequent cannabis users might become less sensitive to these effects over a period of time and the memory impairment in most of the users is temporary.

LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF CANNABIS ON MEMORY:

Long-term memory, also known as Verbal memory can be adversely affected by higher doses of cannabis in frequent users. An interesting long-term study conducted by UCSF researchers for over 25 years shows that long time (five years or more) users of cannabis develop a poor verbal memory recall. Researchers found that with every five years of marijuana use the person’s ability to remember words from a list of 15 words decreased by one. Although it did not seem to have any effect on other cognitive functions involving planning and focusing.  According to Reto Auer, the main author of the study, people who consumed cannabis for longer periods were at a greater risk of verbal memory loss by the time they reached their middle age. A study shows that cannabis with high THC and low CBD adversely affected memory, while cannabis with high CBD has no adverse effects on the memory. Interestingly, some studies suggest that higher level of CBD, due to its therapeutic properties and non-psychoactive behavior, may prevent or even reverse memory impairments caused by THC. So CBD might even help protect our memory. Written by Kathy CooleyKathy Cooley has been closely studying the cannabis industry trends for quite some time.

CBD OIL FIGHTS INFLAMMATION

CBD Oil Fights Inflammation

 August 2, 2018 

CBD fights inflammation, there is no doubt about it. In fact, studies are proving that CBD oil, which is extracted from cannabis is superior to many common drugs such as aspirin when it comes to fighting inflammation. This is a big deal because we know that inflammation is the root cause of most diseases and many of us would prefer to not take synthetic medicine. In addition to the medical research, there are more and more personal success testimonies by people who are using CBD oil to fight inflammation. But is CBD alone enough to do the trick or does it take all of the cannabinoids working together? According to one study published out of the Lautenberg Center of General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem the answer is clear. 

This study evaluated the effectiveness of CBD when it was isolated compared to when it was combined with the plants more than 80 cannabinoids. For your reference, the most commonly known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannibinol, or THC. You may recognize this acronym because it refers to the active ingredient in marijuana and causes users to get high when heated. The second most dominant is cannabidiol, CBD, which is non-psychoactive and can not get you high. Cannabis plants with high THC are normally referred to as marijuana whereas cannabis plants with low THC and high CBD are referred to as hemp. For this article we are referring to CBD oil which is extracted from hemp and has less than .03% THC, making it legal in all 50 states.

WHAT DID THE CBD STUDY PROVE?

The study was conducted on mice and concluded that the whole plant extract in which all of the cannabinoids work synergistically was much more effective in relieving pain and inflammation. Interestingly, the CBD by itself proved in most tests to be ineffective regardless of the dose. In contrast, the effectiveness of the full spectrum CBD continued to increase as the higher doses were given. The tests showed the greatest effectiveness was when the oil was taken orally. It also noted that the medicinal effects and dosages will be unique to each patient.

TEST SHOWS FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL DECREASES INFLAMMATION.

This particular test studied what’s called TNFa, which stands for tumor necrosis factor alpha. When TNFa is present in the body it leads to swelling from fluid in body tissue. So, researchers tested tissue reaction when full spectrum CBD oil was administered and they found it continued to suppress TNFa production to extremely low levels as the dosage was increased.

HOW DID FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL COMPARE TO OTHER ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS?

This test compared CBD with both aspirin and tramadol. Aspirin had a moderate effect on tissue swelling, while tramadol had little effect. The full spectrum CBD prevented swelling of the mice paw to a greater extent than either commercial drug. Both of the commercial drugs did more for direct pain sensation, but it was CBD that produced a decrease in TNFa or again the inflammation, which as we know is normally the source of pain. Therefore, the study concluded that cannabis has medical properties not found in common anti-inflammatory drugs.

In conclusion, studies like this continue to prove that cannabis is a relevant source when treating pain and inflammation, when the full spectrum of cannabinoids are present.

CBD for Hot Flashes???

CBD Oil Dosage

                           

One of the most common questions we receive in terms of our CBD oil is in regard to dosing. There are resources online, but we are providing this document as a reference only.

CBD-hemp oil comes in various forms. At CBD BioCare we currently only offer one product that can be consumed. This is our CBD oil that we offer in four concentrations, 500mg, 750mg, 1000mg and 1500mg.

Everyone Is Different

What you will find on this page is meant to be a guideline, a starting point of reference. The fact remains that everyone is different and will react differently to their CBD dosage. Furthermore, CBD is a supplement and is not FDA approved. It is considered safe and beneficial by many healthcare professionals. However, please read our disclosure at the bottom of this document. It is best to start small and gradually increase until you experience the desired result.

How to Take CBD Oil

CBD is most commonly taken orally. To take CBD oil first hold it under the tongue to be absorbed in the mouth prior to swallowing. This step is important because some of the CBD taken will be broken down by the digestive system.

Our physician recommends first taking half a dropper full to see how you respond. The following day take ten drops, or half a dropper every couple hours until the optimal results are attained. Some dose once a day and others take it throughout the day. The dose can be increased or decreased based on response.  CBD can also be absorbed into the skin. By taking it through the skin via oil, balms and creams.

Why is CBD great for your skin?

Why is CBD great for your skin?

CBD oil and creams are beneficial for skin for numerous reasons. More and more studies are being conducted and proving its benefits and the results are exciting for its anti-aging and medicinal properties. But what sets our skincare apart from others in the industry is simply quality.  

We believe that when this extract is infused into skin creams it is extremely effective in fighting wrinkles, minimizing sun damage, softening under-eye bags to providing relief for irritated skin.

Therefore, scientist have concluded that skincare products that target the endocannabinoid system are likely to be a fundamental element of next-generation skincare treatments.  

 

Anti-Aging

CBD is proving to reduce the signs of aging but it has may other healing benefits. According to a study in 2010 in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, it revealed that CBD is an antioxidant even more powerful than Vitamin C, E, A, or omega 3 fatty acids, which are all also present in our CBD creams and oil. Protecting the skin from free radicals, like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants, is critical in having younger looking skin. Free radicals in the atmosphere cause fine lines and wrinkles and antioxidants protect you from this damage.

Eczema

Atopic dermatitis, more commonly referred to as eczema has been shown to improve after using CBD oil. If you suffer from this irritating skin condition you know how uncomfortable it can be because it is often itchy, not to mention red and inflamed. It can also present as a rash that can spread. The skin does dry out significantly and may peel, flake or bleed. Preliminary research and user testimony leads to the conclusion that CBD has the potential to help eczema by reducing inflammation and by relieving itching.

Psoriasis

Like with eczema, researchers are unsure of the exact causes of psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes itchy, painful red patches on the skin. These red patches develop plaques, built up layers of skin. For some reason, the body begins to grow new skin cells more quickly than it can shed them. This causes irritating scaly patches to compile in various areas of the skin. Psoriasis is thought to be linked to problems with the immune system, specifically white T cells in the blood. Researchers have seen promise in using CBD to assist in the healing process.

Antibacterial agent

Bad bacteria is not good news for the body. In fact, many serious conditions, including gum, heart and intestinal diseases can develop if there is an imbalance. A study in 2008, “Antibacterial Cannabinoids from Cannabis Sativa” at del Piemonte University in Italy concluded that; the five major Cannabinoids, including CBD, showed potent activity against a deadly bacteria, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), a microorganism of great clinical importance.

 

Antioxidants

CBD is a powerful antioxidant, some believe it is even more powerful than vitamins A, C, and E in terms of combatting fine lines and wrinkles.    

Antioxidants are key to preventing skin damage caused by free radicals. UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants are “free radicals” and your skin is exposed to them each and every day. It’s exposure to these free radicals that damage cells and cause your skin to look visibly older.

Fights inflammation

CBD is also a strong anti-inflammatory, which is a win, win when it comes to skincare to combat puffiness, especially under your eyes. Coupled with CBD’s potent antioxidant effects, the herb’s strong inflammation-fighting abilities make it a good potential treatment for skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

Omega-3s

CBD contains omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. Not only do these healthy fats moisturize dry, dull skin, but when combined with other antioxidants it also protects your skin from the sun. In addition, it fights wrinkles and helps prevent potentially deadly skin cancers like melanoma.

What is CBD?

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is not yet a well-known acronym, but at CBD BioCare we believe that will change as more people learn about the benefits of this amazing cannabis extract. We are dedicated to bringing more CBD hemp oil products to the open marketplace.

We already know that there are many plants such as Aloe Vera, lavender, chamomile and many others that contain healing properties. So, it should not be surprising that the cannabis plant also has medicinal benefits.

Chemically, CBD is one of more than 80 chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant compound in cannabis, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. The first is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.

The Different types of Cannabis

In simple terms, cannabis that is grown to have high levels of THC is marijuana and cannabis grown with less than .3% THC and high levels of CBD is called hemp. In fact, the legal term for the hemp that is grown to produce our CBD oil is called industrial hemp. We extract from the whole plant, predominately leaves and flowers, to receive all the cannabinoids in the plant. The product is called full spectrum CBD hemp oil. Any oil extracted from marijuana plants are illegal in most states.

What types of cannabis oils are on the marketplace?

There are many different names including:

  • Hemp oil
  • Marijuana oil
  • THC oil
  • Cannabis oil
  • CBD Oil

 

Hemp oil
Hemp oil most often refers to oil derived from the hemp seed oil. No THC or CBD are present.

Marijuana oil – THC Oil and Cannabis oil
These names refer to oils that have been extracted from marijuana and high THC, making it illegal in most states.

CBD Oil
CBD Oil is a collective term for oils made from hemp, and contains less than .3% THC. But sometimes CBD oil only contains CBD and therefore is an isolate product. At CBD BioCare we offer a full spectrum CBD oil. Full spectrum means it contains all the cannabinoids, not just CBD.

What are the benefits of CBD?

Inflammation

Recently, many studies indicate that CBD may well be the most potent anti-inflammatory agent of all Cannabinoids. Literally hundreds of research papers find that Cannabinoids, the active molecules found in Cannabis, exert potent anti-inflammatory activities in many animal models. Inflammatory disease, including rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, liver inflammation, brain injury, neurological degeneration, and multiple sclerosis may all show improvement with CBD use. 

Bone growth

Dr Yankel Gabet at Tel Aviv University reports that rodents with broken limbs healed much faster when treated with non-psychoactive CBD. “We found CBD alone to be sufficiently effective in enhancing fracture healing. Other studies have shown CBD to be a safe medicinal agent, which leads us to believe we should continue this line of study in clinical trials to assess its usefulness in improving human fracture healing.”

Anxiety

Much research supports the claim that Cannabinoids can provide effective relief to people experiencing spells of anxiety and stress. A 2013 paper published in the International Neuro-psychopharmacology Journal explores, whether or not, Cannabidiol exert a therapeutically significant effect on human mental health; the inhibition of psychosis, anxiety and depression.  While the exact mechanism of CBD’s action was unclear to the research team, the findings support the claim that CBD is anxiolytic in effect.  In other words, CBD was found to be an anti-stress agent of importance and worthy of further study.

 

Pain Reliever

A wealth of research worldwide supports the claim that CBD, THC and other Cannabinoids are effective painkillers. In a 2008 paper by Ethan Russo. Therapeutic Clinical Risk Management Journal, “Cannabinoids in the Management of Difficult to Treat Pain”, the efficacy of CBD among other Cannabinoids were studied.  Findings include;

  • Cannabinoid painkillers are generally well tolerated in clinical trials observed
  • Side effects are few and manageable
  • Pharmacological use for treatment of pain shows great promise
  • CBD in combination with opioid therapy is a very promising, efficacious treatment

Muscles spasms and seizures

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently allowed epilepsy centers to prescribe and study CBD for compassionate use. FDA related studies focus on difficult epilepsies such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome in children. Results were presented at the American Academy of Neurology, April 22, 2015 in Washington DC. 

Study Parameters:

  • Test subjects ages ranged from 2 to 26 years, with an average age of 11
  • All subjects had epilepsy that did not respond to currently available treatments 
  • 18% had Dravet Syndrome (DS)
  • 16% had Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS)

Summary findings:

  • Seizures overall decreased by an average of 54%
  • DS seizures decreased by 63% decrease over 3 months
  • Improvements in seizure issues lasted six months while on medication
  • Atonic seizures decreased by 66.7% on average
  • 14 people withdrew from the study because it was not effective for them

Blood sugar levels

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the discoverer of Cannabidiol (CBD), postulated that the compound might work with many different receptors and could possibly be used to manage diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.  In subsequent studies and trials at the University of Tel Aviv, there is now substantial evidence that supports this hypothesis.

Study highlights:

  • Rats with infarcts (areas of dead tissue) due to a failure of blood supply were reduced by 30% when given CBD
  • Chronic inflammation is associated with insulin resistance – type 2 diabetes. As CBD reduces inflammation, there are indications that insulin resistance is reduced as well
  • Sugar metabolism and heart function all also appear to benefit from CBDs anti-inflammatory properties
  • Unlike insulin and other existing medications for diabetes, in some cases, CBD might suppress, reverse and cure the disease

Research is underway as you read this information. But it is believed that CBD has tremendous medical value, able to assist in healing dozens of conditions. Here is a short list of the conditions currently being studied:

The Federal Government currently owns US Patent 06630507, here is the Abstract Summary.

Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants
US 6630507 B1

ABSTRACT

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH3, and COCH3.

 

Scientific Research

There’s a scientific reason why CBD works. It has to do with our bodies natural cannabinoid receptors. It turns out that cannabinoid receptors play a host of vital roles in our bodies. Found in nerve tissue, lung, liver, intestine, kidney, lymphatic tissue, and the spleen, the CB1 and CB2 receptors play roles in our immune system and blood formation functions. Other processes they control include cognition, memory, anxiety, motor behavior, sensory, autonomic and neuroendocrine responses, Glucose metabolism and insulin resistance, inflammatory effects, control of the vomiting reflex, nausea, hunger, and appetite control. This system is also responsible for the pleasure we get from exercise.

Our bodies endocannabinoid system plays a major role in the body’s response to pain and injury. If your skin is damaged or irritated, your body’s natural endocannabinoids are there to help. When you apply a CBD infused cream or oil onto your skin it is able to interact with these receptors in a localized area and come to the rescue.
