Can CBD Oil be Used to Treat Migraines?

Written by

There are certain medical conditions that to this day still baffle the medical profession as to how best to treat them. Included in this list are ailments such as migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions.

To be clear: We're not stating here that CBD Oil can cure or even treat such things as migraine, fibromyalgia & irritable bowel syndrome. However, people have used CBD oil and succesfully treated themselves for the above and many other ailments.

Let's take migraine as an example. In a medical study completed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information they state that migraine has numerous relationships to endocannabinoid function (link here) and that they display common clinical, biochemical and pathophysiological patterns that suggest an underlying clinical endocannabinoid deficiency that may be suitably treated with cannabinoid medicines

Interestingly... "may be suitably treated with cannabinoid medicines".

Do the research yourself. Discover more, and come back and comment.

Does CBD Work Without THC?

Written by

The basic question that a lot of people want to know, is “Does cannabis oil without THC work?” The answer? Yes it can. In fact, cannabis without THC can work wonders!

CBD and THC are types of cannabinoids found in cannabis. They are similar on a molecular level; however, they react differently with the cannabinoid receptors in our cells. THC imitates the neurotransmitter anandamide and activates the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptor that creates a high.

The two most well-known and recognized elements in the cannabis plant are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Both CBD and THC are compounds known as cannabinoids.

So, THC affects the entire human body and the mind, while CBD is more focused on reducing pain and achieving homeostasis. Obviously, CBD doesn’t have the same cognitive effects as THC, but the two can be taken together to create a balance. For example, taking CBD has been known to neutralize some of THC’s frowned upon side effects, such as paranoia and increased heart rate.

Medical marijuana has no health risks: WHO

Written by

From the UK in December 2017:

The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially given the checkmark of approval to cannabidiol, a relaxing compound in medical marijuana, ruling it is not a dangerous drug.

The ruling means that it should not be a scheduled drug – meaning that it is not a drug that has a high potential for abuse or is illegal to manufacture or distribute.

The organization is now set to launch a more complete review in May of next year to look into cannabis and cannabis-related substances.

Hows Does THC Work ?

Written by

Well, it just-so-happens to be a similar shape to a compound our bodies create naturally. Thanks to its shape, THC is able to tap into a network in our bodies called the endocannabinoid system. It’s this ability that gives THC it’s psychoactive effects. But, what is the endocannabinoid system and what does it do?

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) refers to a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. You can think of cell receptors like little locks on the surface of your cells. The keys to these locks are chemical molecules called agonists. Each time an agonist binds to a cell it relays a message, giving your cell specific direction.

The diversity of receptor locations shows just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function. They help regulate the following:

  • Sleep
  • Appetite, digestion, hunger
  • Mood
  • Motor control
  • Immune function
  • Reproduction and fertility
  • Pleasure and reward
  • Pain
  • Memory
  • Temperature regulation

People often joke about the herb’s ability to heal a wide variety of seemingly unrelated conditions. But, we now understand that these conditions are all regulated in part by the ECS. The medical implications of this finding are endless.

What is In CBD Oil ?

Written by

CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, these hemp oil products are non-psychoactive.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana after THC. In hemp, however, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic, it doesn’t cause a high. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits.

What Is CBD Oil ?

Written by

Within the swiftly growing cannabis oil industry is a new category of products seeing its own equally rapid rise in popularity: cannabidiol hemp oil, or CBD hemp oil.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. Its formula is C21H30O2 and it has a molecular mass of 314.4636. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for various reasons.

CBD oil is a cannabis oil (whether derived from marijuana or industrial hemp, as the word cannabis is the Latin genus name for both) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. Our CBD products and extracts are derived from industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp extracts” since they typically contain much more than just CBD. Again, cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana but is the genus name and general umbrella term which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we use for our CBD and hemp extracts is industrial hemp; we do not sell marijuana.
