The mechanism of action of CBD is multifold

Two cannabinoid receptors are known to exist in the human body: CB1 and CB2 receptors. The CB1 receptors are located mainly in the brain and modulate neurotransmitter release in a manner that (1) prevents excessive neuronal activity, thus calming and decreasing anxiety; (2) reduces pain; (3) decreases inflammation; (4) regulates movement and posture control; and (5) controls sensory perception, memory, and cognitive function.

Let our products help you with 1-5. Our CBD oil is lab-tested as soon as it is extracted to ensure an accurate amount of CBD.

Good afternoon my fellow CBD followers. It is now the beginning of March and it is no surprise that the circulation of continuing sickness and colds are still upon us even this time of year! Since I have been taking CBD oil on a regular basis, I would like to exclaim that I have not had any significant episodes of colds or sickness in the last two years!

  However, recently my
husband came down with a cold while we were traveling this past New Year’s.
Despite giving each of us extra doses of True Fusion 3000 mg, the rhinovirus
won this time!  But, I have to declare we
feel that the cold did not take hold of us to the degree that it would have had
we not been treating ourselves with CBD oil. 
The immunological support of CBD oil is remarkable!  CBD oil has an affinity for CB2 receptors
that cause a signaling to the immunological components of our bodies.
Supporting these components is, essentially, what keeps us well!  Even though I have very mild symptoms such as
a couple of sneezes and a little tingling in my nose, I feel the symptoms are
entirely suppressed by the continued dosage I’m giving myself of CBD oil. To
equate my dosage for you, I am taking 300 to 400 mg at least twice a day if not
three times a day.  Typically, I would
take 300 mg twice a day. But I try to increase it if there is a presence of
sickness.  I am going to do further
research on reports in clinical format on this exact topic. I look forward to
sharing the research with you!

 Hope you all have
wonderful, cold- free, continuations of your new year!

Hello again and happy new year 2020. I trust your February is going well and continued wellness is flowing to you effortlessly!

I know how many of you understand that using CBD oil or lotion on your skin has many healing properties. It has been shown to improve acne, eczema, rashes, etc. My research also shows that it has many healing structural changes to the skin complex itself. Mainly through the mechanism of inflammation topically.

I want to share with you that I have recently used it on a bad burn from cooking during the holidays and it made a dramatic difference!

What happened is this,  I was reaching into a baking roaster oven to remove a beef roast. In doing so, the soft part of my forearm touched the edge of the 400° roaster oven. It left a 1 X 1.5 inch burn mark immediately! And hurt tremendously! I went in to the drawer to get my bottle of True Fusion 3000mg oil.  I put it directly on the burned area and it almost immediately removed the pain. Then, in the days to come, I placed the oil on the burn and left it open without a bandage. Eventually, it began to heal and did require bandaging. But my biggest point is that the CBD oil dramatically improved the healing of the burn and took away the pain!  Again, another testimony to the healing properties of this amazing oil!

I will also let you all in on a big secret! I am personally applying it under my eyes to determine whether it has an affect on wrinkles. This will be a personal ongoing study in which I am conducting on myself – one subject. I will be looking forward to relating the results to you in the weeks and months to come! Until next time, be well and enjoy every day to the fullest!

CBD Oil, Skin Care, Inflammation and Pain relief

Most cannabinoid skin-care products are designed to help achy spots or surface issues such as eczema. But those applications are just the tip of the iceberg as CBD Cannabis oil seems to give you an extra layer of protection, helping your skin fight against everyday wear-and-tear and some nasty diseases.

Did you know that cannabis oil contains all 21 known amino acids? Plus it’s rich in essential fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6 which are vital for our internal body and skin. These acids help combat daily problems that our skin is the first to take on, whether it be from inclement weather, sun exposure, dry climates, UV or other daily factors. Problems that can lead to a variety of medical issues such as eczema, psoriasis and even skin cancer.

But wait, that’s not all. The major component in the oil known as CBD, is an antioxidant that is even more powerful than Vitamin C,E,A or omega 3 fatty acids.

A recent study in the British Journal of Pharmacology found that CBD and cannabigerol (CBG), can control cell proliferation and differentiation, meaning they can be used as treatments for skin diseases like cancer or allergies.

CBD is also known to be anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antispasmodic, cell-regenerative, and anti–cell proliferative for bad cells. This means that CBD is a potential therapy for a range of medical conditions.

CBD topical application is considered the latest breakthrough in managing joint pain and inflammation. Together with its highly effective pain relieving properties, it possesses systemic absorption as well. CBD is absorbed through the skin where it binds to the body’s own CB2 receptors. Once it connects with these receptors, CBD has a pain relieving an anti- inflammatory effect on the body at the site of application.

While CBD is the compound popping up in beauty products, it’s not the only one within the cannabis plant to be aware of. 

Real talk: There are a lot of chemicals within cannabis, and our body has an entire system that regulates them. All of this comes into play when you slather the plant’s extracts on your skin.

If you just have one cannabinoid, such as CBD, you’re missing out on the over 100 additional cannabinoids that work together to produce the entourage effect.  We really believe in the whole plant, full-spectrum extract or oil, with added terpenes, as the active ingredient in skin-care products.  In other words, you want the whole system working together. 

Your body’s endocannabinoid system has receptors, the full spectrum of cannabinoids work in concert more efficiently and effectively than one on its own—hence it’s good to look for the whole plant’s extract infused with the helpful terpenes.

Topical CBD was also found effective in alleviating the symptoms of the following conditions: seizures, spasticity, weakness, pain, anxiety, insomnia, trigeminal neuralgia, autism, ADD, peripheral neuropathy and fibromyalgia.

The best proven site for application is at the back of the neck. This area is rich with Hundreds of thousands of free nerve endings below the skin surface. No other location has such a magnitude of afferent neural input accessible through skin nerve endings. This source of application of CBD is beneficial in treating symptoms of a number of neuropathic and psychiatric conditions. Topical CBD therapy is overall well tolerated. For example, studies performed by scientific researchers, through the route of topical back of the neck CBD application, found complete seizure freedom achieved in a number of patients with previous intractable epilepsy on multiple drug regimen.

Dosing frequency of topical application range from once daily to three times daily depending on severity of condition. The duration of treatment with topical CBD range from several days to as needed.

CBD: Topical vs oral administration

ORAL DOSAGE VIA BUCCAL MUCOSA

“A common problem associated with ORAL transmucosal administration via the buccal route (in cheek or under tongue), is swallowing the dose due to the continuous secretion of saliva in the mouth. This contributes to decreased absorption of CBD in the body if not properly administered.  For optimal CBD delivery the buccal and sublingual gummies and Oils must remain in contact with oral mucosa for 60 – 90 seconds to allow for the absorption of the CBD. More specifically, the dosage form must not be washed away by saliva into the gastrointestinal tract. Most importantly the formulation of oils or gummies must be designed so that the cannabinoid is optimized in its transmucosal permeation. 

TOPICAL

Dosing frequency of topical application range from once daily to three times daily depending on severity of condition. The duration of treatment with topical CBD range from several days to as needed. For chronic conditions such as neuropathy continued daily application therapy may be more necessary.

Overview how CBD oil can help with pain, anxiety and sleep issues

Sleeping CBD Oil

The endocannabinoid signalling system was discovered because receptors in this system [ CB1 and CB2 ] are the targets of compounds In CBD oil.  It has been determined that cannabidiol has high affinity for these receptors.  Endocannabinoids are implicated in numerous physiological and pathological processes such as neuromodulation and inflammation. The current development of endocannabinoid signalling and how this complex system could be pharmacologically manipulated is at the forefront.  

Let’s talk about the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and how the  CB1 and CB2 receptors play a role in signaling.   This system consists of the endogenous lipid ligands  (anandamide; AEA) and (2-AG) which activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors. The (ECS) regulates functions throughout human body; including neurological , cardiovascular, autonomic, metabolic, and inflammatory states.   The complex cellular interactions modulated by the ECS suggest  prevention of many disease states by changing central nervous and immune cell endocannabinoid signaling.

The following is an in-depth description of how CBD plays a role in the anti-inflammatory process in the body.  Both CB2 receptor agonists and antagonists have been reported to induce anti-inflammatory immune cell responses. And peripheral immune CB2 receptor  activation is anti-inflammatory. PEA has been investigated for its involvement in the control of both excitatory and inhibitory transmission in the murine striatum, a brain region strongly modulated by the ECS.   By  electrophysiologically recording the transmission within neuronal synapses,  it shows that PEA modulates inhibitory synaptic transmission through activation of GPR55 receptor.  GPR55 receptor, an orphan G-protein-coupled receptor, which is involved in processes of inflammation, might be a third cannabinoid receptor.  Furthermore, PEA, acting on GPR55, enhances GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)  transmission in the striatum, and triggers a parallel synthesis of 2-AG (2-arachidonyl glycerol) at the postsynaptic site.  This in turn acts  to inhibit GABA release through stimulation of CB1 receptors at pre-synaptic sites. Because CB2 activation dampens inflammatory responses, it has the potential to serve as a molecular target for diminishing  inflammation linked to pathogenic disorders such as MS, ischemic/perfusion injury following an induced stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and osteoporosis pain. 

Electrophysiological and neurochemical studies have provided  evidence that endocannabinoids suppress nociceptive (pain) transmission, especially peripherally and at the level of the striatum of the spinal cord.
