A Few Facts on CBD for You and Fido

Industrial Hemp is not the snake oil of the twenty-first century. It is the ancient herb that will transform the twenty-first century.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil contains naturally present non-psychotropic cannabinoids and diverse synergistic terpenoids, with less than 0.3% THC, as required by law. It is derived from Industrial Hemp, not marijuana.

In 2003, The Federal Health and Human Services attained a patent for use of CBD as a treatment for various neurodegenerative and inflammatory disorders. Read the full patent here: 
US6,630,507 – Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants And patents are not granted for things that do not work.

The federal government does not allow retailers to advertise nutrtitional or medicinal claims of hemp products on their websites or in stores. This is the same government that granted US Patent 6,630,507 and the newest, granted on December 4, 2018, US Patent 10,143,755 for hydrogels and dermal patches, some containing HEMP Oil (CBD). So, this blog reviews hemp products and shares hemp’s health benefits. Only products with scientifically tested, not visually tested or claimed to be tested, with ‘excellent’ Full Profile’ Certificates of Analysis and full transparency are on the ‘Welcome List.’ CBD Girl Next Door is your CBD Watchdog.

An important breakthrough was in 1990, when government-funded research led to the identification of endocannabinoid receptors, the most abundant neurotransmitter receptor of the brain, the CB1. A second cannabinoid named CB2 was also identified at this time, which is throughout the immune system and nervous system. All mammals have CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD doesn’t bind to these receptors, but instead interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. All mammals are designed to receive CBD, via the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Yes, you and your pets can live a full copacetic CBD life.

CBD, Cannabidiol, occurs naturally in cannabis plants. 

The ECS is involved in regulating the homeostatic functions of sleep, appetite, pain and the immune system response. The body produces endocannabinoids and has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. Research has discovered that CBD may work to reduce pain in two ways: by changing the way your body interprets the pain from your brain, and by lowering and preventing inflammation in the body.

More information on The Endocannabinoid System, including “Extensive preclinical research—much of it sponsored by the U.S. government—indicates that CBD oil has potent anti-tumoral, antioxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsive, and neuroprotective properties. CBD directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-anxiety effect, as well,” from the website, Project CBD. 

Full Spectrum CBD Oil has been used as a dietary supplement, like other herbal remedies for a range of uses from health and wellness to pain management. According to the scientific research, CBD is shown to increase anandamide, a molecule which aids in reducing anxiety and pain – to keep us copacetic and relieving stress is the first steop to relieving a host of issues. It is so effective that CBD is used for epileptic patients to help relieve muscle spasms while having an overall positive effect on the immune system. Read the complete FDA statement on Epidiolex (CBD oral solution), the epilespy drug.

CBD Oil’s earthy fragrance is from its numerous terpenes. Terpenes are powerful molecules with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. 

The receptors are part of the body’s endocannabinoid system and are found throughout the digestive tract, central nervous, cardiovascular, immune and other systems, according to an article from Dr. J. Michael Bostwick, a psychiatrist at the Mayo Clinic.

Nutritionally, hemp is exceptional. Hemp is 33% protein and contains both omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, and antioxidants – vitamin E and carotene, and chlorophyll. It also contains magnesium, calcium, sulfur, phosphorous, iron and zinc. Hemp oil’s nutty flavor makes it a great substitute oil. Use it in salads, dips, soups and smoothies. CBD Oil uses include cooking, but heat will reduce effectiveness. Do not expose to heat over 300 degrees. Add to smoothies but avoid highly acidic citrus juices like grapefruit as acid can also alter the effectiveness.

It is not wise to use a product without full transparency. Insist on a verifiable full profile COA with any hemp product. Identify the testing lab with a header on the lab work. Do not accept a lab report without identifying language and contact information. Identify that COA with a correlating batch number.
