CBD – Green Pain Relief

CBD – Green Pain Relief

Dear Friends,

There is a revolution occurring in the drug therapy world. The lowly hemp plant – so famous for strong rope in the days before nylon and Dacron – is surfacing as nature’s very potent anti-inflammatory. This is promising news for many of those suffering from diseases with inflammation as their root cause. Control the inflammation and the symptoms, as well as the suffering, go away.

Enter our CBD Hemp Oil Products, a legal dietary supplement. Our products are Pharmaceutical Grade Dietary Supplements containing hemp oil derived from the whole medicinal hemp plant, which delivers healthful benefits, without the psychoactive or “high” effect associated with this type of botanical. There is ZERO THC in our CBD Hemp Oil products so urine drug test screens are negative and this product is safe for those with THC allergies. This makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria some experience from High THC Cannabis.

Our Hemp Oil Oral Tinctures are light, oily liquids that are to be delivered orally by dropper and come in a variety of strengths. The CBD Oral Spray is for intermittent use when feeling particularly stressed or anxious throughout the day. The Hemp Balm is applied to painful areas and is perfect for rashes or wounds like shingles or psoriasis. There are over 30 examples of health conditions we found that show benefit from CBD use including ADHD, arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, Chronic Pain, PTSD, depression, osteoporosis, epilepsy, and more.

Dr. Margaret Gedde, a Stanford-trained pathologist and award-winning researcher, said "It has been a real boon to have CBD available … CBD is not only non-psychoactive, it is remarkably non-toxic. Far less toxic than even over-the-counter medications that are commonly used.”

How is CBD different from Marijuana?
• Cannabidiol – CBD – is a chemical compound extracted from the medicinal hemp plant and is one of a class of molecules called cannabinoids
• Non-psychoactive; does not cause intoxication and does not result in feelings of euphoria
• Contains ZERO THC

Human Endocannabinoid System
• Network of cell receptors - CB1 and CB2 - found all over your body: brain, skin, connective tissue, glands, immune cells, digestive tract and reproductive organs.
• THC has a strong affinity for CB1 receptors found in high concentrations in the brain, which cause the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
• Plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis and human health
• “Although the endocannabinoid system has been known to interact with other systems... its interaction with the opioid system is now well established. These two systems share neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and pharmacological characteristics.”(9,10)

Gedde stated, "When I started hearing the results patients were getting, I realized that the reason why [marijuana] could do so many different things in the body without being toxic is because it is acting through this natural endocannabinoid system in our bodies. That's when I said 'Wow. This is huge. There's nothing like this in medicine. There's nothing that I can prescribe that comes close to what this can do for people.'"

The human endocannabinoid system strongly suggests the human organism is actually designed to make good use of the cannabis plant. In other words, the marijuana plant triggers something that's been inside us since the dawn of mankind. The endocannabinoid system exists in other mammals as well, suggesting it is a truly an ancient biological system.

List of Conditions Where CBD has Shown Benefit:

ADHD • Antibiotic resistant infections

• Appetite Stimulation • Atherosclerosis • Autism • Cancer / Anti-proliferative / May inhibit cell growth

Anxiety / Depression / Mood • Crohn’s Disease • Diabetes

• Drug & Alcohol Addiction (and Smoking) • Energy Levels may be increased

• Epileptic Disorders / Seizures • Fibromyalgia • Glaucoma • Hypertension

• Immune Function • Inflammation (deactivates NF-kB the initiator of inflammation)

• Insomnia / May Aid Sleep • Memory • Metabolic Syndrome • Migraine Headache

• Multiple Sclerosis • Myocardial Infarction • Obesity • Osteoporosis / Bone Growth

Pain / Chronic / Neuropathic • Parkinson’s Disease & other Neurological Disorders

• PTSD • Psoriasis • Reproductive Health • Radiation Therapy - may reverse damage

Rheumatoid Arthritis • Schizophrenia • Spasticity • Stroke • Tourette’s Syndrome

CBD has been studied for its antiemetic, analgesic, antiepileptic, and immunomodulatory effects. CBD has also been studied in settings of mood disorders (1,2,3). CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United states and around the world.

Broadly, the effects turned up cell stress responses – including anti-oxidant defenses and detoxification genes – and down-regulation of many inflammation-mediating genes (11). These effects, combined with CBD’s NMDA-receptor-stabilizing effects, reveal great promise for its use in calming the neuroinflammatory responses that accompany neurotoxic and chronic-disease states.

Gedde added, “So many pain medications are damaging to the stomach, to the gut. The cannabis doesn't hurt the gut. It helps heal the gut. People are so relieved … There's nothing else that does that. It won't hurt the organs. It won't hurt the liver. It won't hurt the kidneys. Ibuprofen … people can't stay on that for months and years. They can stay on cannabis. As we know as well, there is no known lethal dose for cannabis, whether it's THC or CBD. A person couldn't die from it even if they were trying really, really hard. There's nothing you can say that about. It offers so much to people on a medical level."
