Robin’s Write up

Hello fellow wellness friends and welcome to my first blog about this exciting topic, CBD oil and it’s benefits!

Let me first introduce myself.  I’m Robin McDonald, RPH, and have been asked to be a medical research advocate for True Oils, Inc.  My passion has been inspired a number of ways. But, personally, to have experience of the benefits of True Natural Oils is an absolute miracle.

Allow me to take you back almost two and half years ago. A lady (I considered her a good friend) who came to my pharmacy to fill her prescriptions began telling me about reducing her dosage of her seizure medication.  As any medical professional would do, I discouraged her from doing so. What if she had a recurrence of her seizure? What if she placed herself into danger?  But then she began describing how she started to take these drops of this new oil.  It’s was called CBD oil.   Pulling me over to the side of the pharmacy, she was whispering to me just how she was taking this new mysterious supplement.  I was instantly intrigued! She divulged to me that she had not had a seizure in over 6 months.  And this was with the reduction of her seizure medication.  How could this be?

My friend asked me to contact her personally when I was free to talk about it. So I did and she told me more about how she started to take this oil.  Her neighbor was distributing a CBD oil   product and knew

that she suffered from seizures.  Her neighbor gave her  some  CBD oil to try and within a couple weeks my friend felt the difference.   Not only was she no longer experiencing seizures, but she felt an overall sense of wellness.  No more were her joints aching or stiff. And no more was her thinking or thoughts cloudy.  She became more cognitively aware and clear.  All because she was placing 10 drops of the highest potency product in her morning coffee.  Or sometimes, just under her tongue.

 Now please let me share with you that my same friend has over 5 angioma, blood-filled, tumors on her brain.  This is the culprit for her seizures. Every time she experiences a change of cranial blood pressure, it results in a seizure. With the use of this miraculous CBD oil she is now seizure free.  And continues to be seizure free to this date.

You see, my wellness friends, it is experiences and stories such as these that I am delighted to share with you!  Please look forward for my next blog.  And as always, please reach out with any questions that I may answer for you.  I look forward to helping you onto a better pathway of Health!

FAQ: Does CBD Counteract TCH?

A study has showed that a single dose of CBD, administered orally in healthy volunteers, alters the resting activity in limbic and paralimbic brain areas while decreasing subjective anxiety associated with the scanning procedure.

In healthy humans, CBD reversed the anxiogenic (anxiety-inducing) effects of Δ9-THC and reduced anxiety in a simulated public-speaking task.

FAQ: What Does CBD Oil Taste Like?

CBD Oil can taste anywhere from grassy, nutty, or even chemically depending on quality and extraction method. True Natural Oils triumphs using pure full-spectrum CBD oil, USDA certified organic MCT coconut oil, and added organic flavors to complement the existing natural terpene profile.

True Natural Oils was able to retain the delicate terpenes in the extraction process, giving True Wellness the aromatic smell of mint, with refreshing hints of citrus. True Bliss carries hints of berry with added relaxing botanicals. True Fusion is our champion formula focusing on anti-inflammation and deep stress relief accented by hints of natural cinnamon.

FAQ: “…But why would I even take CBD??”

Our Blog is an info-packed one but I wanted to give a brief overview for those looking for a quick answer to a basic question- “Why would I take CBD?”

The whole point of taking CBD Oil is to bring homeostasis (balance) back to the mind and body via the endocannabinoid system. Virtually every organism on Earth has an endocannabinoid system moderated by cannabinoids like CBD.

However, this complex network of receptors is commonly starving, and experiencing a “Cannabinoid Deficiency” in today’s environmental conditions.

Studies have shown the Endocannabinoid system ⁣is most abundant in the brain and immune system, and is responsible for important functions such as sleep, relaxation, inflammatory responses, cognitive ability and an endless list of other major functions within the body. So naturally when our system is experiencing this deficiency, these normal bodily functions can become out-of-wack per se.

FAQ: Is CBD addictive?

Answer: No. In contrast to pharmaceuticals, CBD does not have addictive properties. Many have started and stopped taking CBD without any side effects. In fact, CBD is even being tested to help treat addiction due to its ability to work as a hedonic signal on pleasure receptors.⁣

So don’t be afraid to give CBD a try. You may have different experiences with CBD from your peers because each body’s biological makeup & balance within homeostasis is different.

What you can expect for sure is that the more you consume it, the more receptive your body will becomes to it. It might take some people a couple of months of continuous CBD consumption in order to fully experience the benefits of the compound.⁣

That being said, there’s no time than the present to better your health. Read on for more information or shop our lab-tested products now to start your healing journey!

Could CBD treat Covid-19?

CBD is derived from the hemp plant, a kind of cannabis which unlike marijuana does not have the psychoactive effects produced by high THC levels. Hemp has grown in popularity among farmers and health and wellness retailers in recent years. Its ingredients, including CBD, can be used in a variety of consumer products, including cosmetics, biofuel and food. CBD is purported to have various health benefits, including the reduction of depression and anxiety, but scientific research validating such benefits has been limited to this point.

CBD could help block ACE2, or the molecule that Covid-19 disease uses to enter a person’s cells and spread infection.

Evidence Keeps Grows for CBD

Mice that were treated with CBD experienced reduced expression of IL-6, which is an important factor for cytokine storms, as well as lowered levels of other proinflammatory cytokines. CBD treatment aided in reversing inflammatory indices and partially reestablishing homeostasis. Another exciting find of the study was that mice who received the CBD treatment also showed increases in lymphocyte levels in their blood, which are vital white blood cells that help fight off infections. Researchers of the study believe that CBD could play an immunotherapeutic role in treating other severe respiratory viral infections similar to COVID-19.

“The current data support the notion that the anti-inflammatory function of CBD may reduce cytokine storm and mitigate the effects of exaggerated inflammation” the authors explain (1). Further adding that, “considering all potential regulatory effects of CBD as well as the vast distribution of endocannabinoid system in the body, it is plausible that CBD may be used as a therapeutic candidate in the treatment of various inflammatory conditions including COVID-19 and other virus-induced ARDS.”

With this being an early study, more research needs to be performed, particularly on human subjects with COVID-19 related ARDS to validate and expand this therapeutic strategy. This evidence on the additional health benefits of CBD provides hope in the uncharted waters of not only COVID-19 but other illnesses as well, hopefully ending the stigma of this enlightening cannabis plant.

Researchers say CBD could provide vital treatment for coronavirus

As researchers and doctors rush to understand the novel coronavirus, sometimes new evidence contradicts old claims. Cannabis represents a main topic where scientists have spun 180 degrees in discussing how the plant interacts with COVID-19. Public health officials announced back in March that marijuana smokers and vapers were more at risk to contract and spread the coronavirus.

Lung health experts still don’t recommend inhaling any combustible material like tobacco or marijuana, due to the inflammation caused in your airways. However, cannabis has emerged as an unlikely candidate in preventing and treating COVID-19 symptoms.

One preliminary study suggests CBD may help to fight Covid-19

Following a study conducted at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, researchers believe that strong cannabis strains could prove valuable in preventing or treating coronavirus infections.

Their study led them to hypothesize that those extracts high in CBD could be leveraged to combat Covid-19 infections by modulating levels of ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme II) in certain “gateway” tissues.

These include lung tissue, oral/nasal mucosa, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, and testes. The researchers believe that modulating ACE2 levels in these areas with CBD could help to decrease people’s susceptibility to Covid-19. As the coronavirus can only enter a human host with a receptor, i.e. ACE2, targeting these could reduce the risk of infection significantly.

Its goal is to determine whether CBD can increase the effectiveness of corticosteroids (a key treatment for autoimmune illnesses) or allow for steroid dosages to reduce while enhancing their effect.

The research conducted by Stero Therapeutics and the University of Lethbridge’s team could open the doors to unexpected new ways to prevent, and treat, coronavirus. However, further studies will be required to verify the research and facilitate the creation of CBD-centric solutions suitable for COVID-19 patients.

Whatever the outcome, the need for an effective treatment is urgent.
