What is CBD?

CBD is a short term for cannabidiol, an essential component of medical marijuana. It is extracted directly from the Hemp plant, which is a close relative of the marijuana plant.

The main difference is with hemp, you won’t get a “high” or enter a mind-altering state. CBD does not change a person’s state of mind when they use it.

The CBD industry is booming and we are all aware of the media coverage it has been getting the past year. If you live in a state where CBD is legal, you may notice that the product is all over the place.

From CBD gummies, facials, coffee, lotions and vape, CBD has been infiltrating almost every aspect of the health and wellness industry.

What is Hemp

Hemp has been getting a bad reputation for being a “cousin” and look-alike of marijuana. It comes from the cannabis Sativa species while marijuana often comes from the cannabis indica species.

Hemp is a very useful crop which can be used as a material to make various products like clothes, paper, shoes, animal feeds and building insulation to name a few.

History of Hemp

We have been cultivating hemp for more than 10,000 years now. Hemp seeds and flower tops were popular during the Roman period when they were used to treat various ailments.

Hemp was an essential crop in North America in the early 1600s. During the 1900s, Henry Ford had a vision of creating a car that was manufactured and fueled by hemp.

In 1938, an article was written in Popular Mechanics describing hemp as a “billion-dollar crop.” It showed close to 25,000 uses of the plant but the sad news was just a year earlier in 1937, The Marijuana Tax Act was passed which made it illegal to produce marijuana and any plant type that was in the cannabis family including Hemp.

Many countries followed suit and have banned its cultivation in the 20th Century.

Hemp Production increase since 2018

In the United States, hemp was outlawed by President Richard Nixon and it was only in December 2018 that the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 was signed into law by President Trump.

Since the law was passed, hemp production has soared and the focus is now on CBD production because this is where most profits can be made.

Consumer education is vital to making the hemp industry reach its full potential.

Based on stats from New Frontier Data, sales of hemp products in the US reached $1 billion in 2018. Sales in America is projected to hit $2.6 billion by 2022. The global sales for hemp products were $3.7 billion in 2018.

Environmental Benefits of Hemp

Hemp helps preserve the environment because they grow fast and need small amounts of water to thrive. They need less irrigation compared to other crops like wheat, corn, and soybeans.

You can expect a high yield because they can be planted in close proximity to one another. They grow twice as tall as marijuana and have bigger leaves. They grow well in various temperatures and humidity.

CBD for Child Epilepsy Treatment

CBD has become popular due to numerous health benefits. The strongest scientific evidence has shown effectiveness in the treatment of childhood epilepsy syndromes like LGS(Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome) and Dravet syndrome.

Both of these conditions are known for being non-responsive to anti-seizure medicines. Many studies have shown that CBD was able to reduce seizures and in some cases stop them altogether.

The FDA has just approved Epidiolex, the first cannabis-extract medicine meant to treat childhood epilepsy syndromes.

CBD can treat patients who are experiencing anxiety and insomnia. Studies have shown that CBD can help people fall asleep and sleep longer. If you want to sleep better you can try out two of our best CBD products that we highly recommend our Gold CBD Oil Extract (250mg to 2500mg CBD) and Entourage Hemp CBD Softgels

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and How It’s Connected to Wellbeing. 

Endocannabinoid, put in simpler terms, means cannabis-like substances that are found inside of us. ECS has three parts: receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes.

The main function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis. Homeostasis is how our bodies keep everything at the right level. Our internal environment is kept stable no matter the external situation is. They can be compared to gauges on a dashboard of a car or plane. Our bodies monitor critical levels and functions inside of us for example, our heart is beating too fast or our body temperature is too high. When something is not right like in these instances, our body activates the ECS to help correct it.

The ECS can do this with the help of receptors found in select tissues in our body.

The system is involved in many processes which include memory, pain, mood, stress, appetite, sleep, metabolism, immunity and reproduction.

Endocannabinoids are known to be the most versatile and widespread signaling molecules that we ever encountered.

Cannabis products can stimulate the activity of our ECS which is why they are being used in a lot of treatments nowadays. This explains the huge demand for CBD products since hemp production has been legalized.

CBD for Weight loss and Fat Burning

Weight loss and fat burning are two of the goals many people aim for. Whether it’s for health reasons or just to look good, a product that can help achieve a thinner waistline is surely going to be a hit in the market.

CBD is becoming popular in the health and wellness industry and some believe that it can help you lose weight and burn fats.

We are already familiar with the ECS system and how it responds through two types of receptors. CB1 receptors can be found in the brain but in obese people, they can be found in fatty tissues as well.

Overactivation of CB1 receptors in the fat tissues could lead to obesity and metabolic risks

CBD may either block off or activate receptors which may play a role in weight loss or other vital metabolic functions.

When CB1 receptors are blocked by CBD, the risk of obesity is reduced.

CBD Fat Burner

A study made in 2016 showed that CBD plays a role in how the body deals with fats. It acts as a stimulant to break fats down quickly and helps convert white fat cells into brown fat cells. White fat cells are “bad” fat which may increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes while brown fat helps the body burn calories.
