FAQ: How “Safe” is CBD?

“Several studies suggest that CBD is non-toxic in non-transformed cells and does not induce changes on food intake, does not induce catalepsy, does not affect physiological parameters (heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature), does not affect gastrointestinal transit and does not alter psychomotor or psychological functions. Also, chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated in humans.”⁣

CBD FAQ: Can You Build a Tolerance to CBD?

Answer: No.

In 2000, there was a study published by The Kennedy Center of Rheumatology titled, “The Nonpsychoactive Cannabis Constituent Cannabidiol is an Cral Anti-arthritic Therapeutic in Murine Collagen-induced Arthritis”. The study ends by summarizing, “all of this suggests that CBD may be valuable in the treatment of other chronic inflammatory diseases as well.”

What’s even better, this study also reports that “prolonged treatment with CBD does not induce tolerance, a phenomenon often observed by cannabinoids”. This means that in contrast to many Pharmaceuticals, you will not develop a tolerance, or a reduction in efficacy as you use Cannabinoids in the treatment of your ailments.

New Product Alert! Golden Bee Hemp 1000 mg Extra Strength Pain Salve

We have been working with Golden Bee Hemp for years now, and we are excited to announce the launch of their new product- 1000 mg Extra Strength Pain Salve.

We have been working together to develop the best formula for their new product, and it’s finally available for purchase!

Robin, our Research & Product Development Specialist, has helped formulate it so that it could be the most effective in relieving pain. It now features 1000 mg of Broad Spectrum CBD, and Organic Terpenes handpicked by Robin to best combat body pain.

In addition, it also features Arnica & Menthol. Arnica flowers have been used for centuries because they are known to support circulation, thus allowing oxygen to reach injured cells faster. In terms of bruises, sprains, and other injuries, this means that healing time is decreased, and recovery comes faster.

Menthol is known as a counterirritant. It works by causing the skin to feel cool, and then warm. These feelings on the skin distract you from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles and joints.

Golden Bee Hemp is Vegan, Cruelty-Free & Ethical. Also a Laguna Beach company, they strive to support the support the community by sourcing local ingredients when possible, and also support fair-trade practices, as they ensure fare wages are met for labor. In addition, they also donate a portion of proceeds to support the declining number of bee colonies!

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.

Study: CBD and Terpene Formulation Effective Against COVID-19 Symptoms

A study led by Israeli research and development firms Eybna and CannaSoul Analytics suggests that a combination of CBD with terpenes is three times more effective at preventing cytokine activity than corticosteroid dexamethasone, Forbes reports. So-called cytokine storms are one of the symptoms of COVID-19, causing inflammation, swelling, pain, loss of organ function, and can cause the immune system to kill the body’s own cells.

The study investigates Eybna’s NT-VRL – a proprietary terpene formulation which aims to treat inflammatory conditions such as the cytokine storm syndrome experienced by some COVID-19 patients. The product contains 30 individual terpenes that may be anti-inflammatory agents and are generally considered safe for consumption, the report says. Dexamethasone was found in a recent United Kingdom study to reduce mortality by one-third in COVID-19 patients on ventilators.

Researchers used a “Cytokine Storm Assay” from Cannasoul, whose founder Dr. David Meiri indicated is well-established and allows for evaluation of cytokine storm syndrome. Using human blood cells, the assay helps researchers assess the effect of different treatments on cytokine secretion, which drives the storm in severe COVID-19 patients.

CBD alone inhibited around an average of 75 percent of the cytokines, while the terpenes alone inhibited around 80 percent, while NT-VRL inhibited around 90 percent. Dexamethasone inhibited around 30 percent, the report says.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injury affects a high number of young adults and their hospitalization is still a significant public challenge. During neuronal damage a complex series of mechanisms becomes activated. Energy failure leads to calcium overload, depolarization of neurons and release of neurotransmitters with consecutive excitotoxicity, induced through overstimulation from excitatory receptors like NMDA receptor.

Injured neuronal tissue releases pro-inflammatory cytokines leading to migration of inflammatory cells to the damaged site and inflammation.  Cannabinoids (CBD) positively affect cellular and molecular processes during ischemic or traumatic brain injury and were shown to be protective mostly via microglial cells.

The number of damaged neurons was significantly reduced after treatment with endocannabinoids, like N-arachidonoyl dopamine, (2-AG) or PEA associated with altered microglial cell number.  2-AG was shown to induce protection after neuronal lesion and to reduce the amount of tumor necrosis factor α released from LPS activated microglial cells.

What CBD oil is good for

If you follow cannabis news, you’re bound to have learned about a slew of conditions CBD oil is good for, including chronic pain and anxiety. But there are other uses that you may not have heard of yet.

Quitting smoking is one of the most difficult tasks for someone with a habit. Now anecdotal evidence shows that CBD can help not only with the depression and anxiety associated with quitting, but if you use a CBD pen in lieu of a cigarette or nicotine vape pen, the hand to mouth motion helps with that part of the addiction. Many people trying not to smoke find that they don’t know what to do with their hands during times when they crave a cigarette or e-cig, so a CBD vape pen is a perfect solution on many levels.

Did you know that CBD may have an effect on high blood pressure? Though you are always advised to talk to your doctor about treatments and to not stop any other treatment plans, adding CBD oil to your list of supplements couldn’t hurt. It is an innocuous component of the cannabis plant and has no psychoactive properties whatsoever when under the 0.3 percent THC mark. The fact that CBD also combats anxiety means that you shouldn’t be nervous to add it to your daily regime.

Talk to a medical consultant at True Natural Oils about dosages, milligrams and delivery systems.

CBD is often used for anxious pets

The increased demand for wellness and self-care products during the coronavirus pandemic has made more people curious about trying CBD, even though it has yet to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Separate from the actual virus, quarantine itself brings its own share of ills, such as anxiety, depression, sleeping problems, muscle pain from inactivity and, of course, crippling boredom. Although CBD is on its way to be clinically proven to reduce anxiety, reducing anxiety is a key selling point for CBD, so it makes sense that in a time of public uncertainty more people would be open to experimenting with it.

As many of us are home with our beloved pets, Animals also have an endocannabinoid system, CBD is often used for anxious pets. Many CBD product lines now include items specifically for animals; there are also CBD brands dedicated entirely to them, including Natural Pet Oils , which has separate product lines for dogs, cats and an array of pets.
