CANNABINOIDS

FUNCTION AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS

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.”

FAQ

CBD is cannabidiol. It is one of the two main cannabinoids found in Cannabis sativa. CBD is found in higher concentrations in industrial hemp and is non-psychoactive.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, CBD can be used as a neuroprotectant and antioxidant. These attributes are beneficial for inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and neurodegenerative diseases. CBD is useful in both treatment and preventative care.

Other research has linked cannabinoids to be helpful with addiction, anxiety, depression, brain trauma, PTSD, and cancers.

There are two main cannabinoids found in Cannabis (both hemp and marijuana). One is CBD or cannabidiol and the other is THC or tetrahyrdocannabidiol. CBD is non-psychoactive and is found in higher concentrations in hemp; whereas, THC is psychoactive and is found in higher concentrations in marijuana.
Buyer beware! Because of regulation and other market factors, there is a common misconception between hemp oil, CBD oil, hemp extract and CBD extract.

Technically hemp oil is cold-pressed from the seed; whereas, CBD oil is extracted from the flowers of the plant. However, some companies label CBD oil (extract) as Hemp Oil in order to navigate regulation. Before buying, it is best to consult the label and search for the terms “CBD” or “extract.”

Anything labeled as CBD extract or hemp extract should contain CBD because the “extract” is extracted from the flowers of hemp, which is where the cannabinoids are produced.

However, some CBD products are marijuana-derived and contain higher concentrations of THC. The sale of these products are only permitted in states with proper medical or recreational marijuana legislation. In these instances, marijuana-derived CBD is not permitted to cross state lines.

CBD comes in a variety of forms. Tinctures, salves, balms, capsules and patches are the most common. Dosages depend on the individual. It is best to start with smaller dosages and build to higher dosages. But please consult your physician.
CBD has an earthy tone. Depending on the processing technique and refining, flavor can vary. All natural flavors mixed with coconut oil offer an Olive Oil flavor; however, flavored tinctures offer the flavor of that brand.
From our experience, side effects from CBD may include nausea from over-consumption. If you have experienced other side effects from taking CBD, please let us know!

If you are taking other medication, please consult with your physician.

Because Full Spectrum CBD contains trace quantities of THC, it can trigger a positive drug test for “marijuana metabolites.” However, the detection depends on the quantity of product ingested on a continuous basis and the type of drug screening. If there is concern, it is best to purchase CBD isolate or notify the drug screener.
