Can CBD improve the sex life?

Nowadays, there are countless products that are supposed to boost the sex life and bring momentum back to the bedroom. From sex toys to slippery games to underwear, the industry delivers almost daily new ideas for more fun in bed. While such games can have a positive effect on sex life, couples usually have more profound problems as to why the fire is not burning as it used to. Many problems with sexuality can be attributed to mental or physical causes, which in turn make sure that it does not go around properly in terms of sexuality. We do not feel fulfilled and that can nag your self-confidence. Cannabidiol has many useful properties, and recent scientific research suggests that CBD may be an alternative treatment for problems with sexual performance, be it mental or physical. How can CBD improve the sex life?Healthy sexuality is part of a healthy lifestyle and what could be better than expressing affection for one's partner with physical closeness. For some people, however, the thought of such intimate moments can lead to anxiety and panic. Especially in the midst of romantic moments, it is possible that one is surprised by his feelings. Anxiety, physical insecurity or doubt can quickly turn such events into an unpleasant experience. Although CBD appears like a newcomer in the wellness industry, there are already many studies that hint at the great potential of cannabidiol to relieve anxiety. So why could not cannabinoid help with anxiety management in the bedroom? Erectile dysfunctionErectile dysfunction is a sexual disorder affecting millions of men in German-speaking countries. Women can suffer as well. Central to the onset of erectile dysfunction is the fear of sexual failure. At this point, the therapeutic potential of CBD comes into play. With its stress-relieving and relaxing effects, CBD could take away such worries and provide more relaxation. CBD against inflammationCannabidiol has an anti-inflammatory potential and experts consider inflammation as a reason for decreased sex drive. In response to an inflammation, our immune system responds with white blood cells that attack the inflamed areas in our body to clear ship again. Not only do people with chronic inflammation often suffer from pain, they also struggle with circulatory problems. Especially for men, this can be a real problem. Circulatory disorders can cause erectile dysfunction. Man can no longer maintain an erection properly - or it does not even get that far. Due to the remarkable therapeutic properties of cannabidiol, cannabinoid may relieve the inflammation and pain that may be a potential cause of erectile dysfunction. CBD for painFor many people, pain is a major reason why the desire for sex disappears - understandably. Quickly you are inclined to resort to conventional drugs that promise immediate relief. Unfortunately, many analgesics have a lot of side effects that can affect your libido. There are scientific reports analyzing the use of CBD in chronic pain. It has been found that there is strong evidence to support the theory that cannabis (including CBD) is an effective treatment option for chronic adult pain. And thanks to the safe use of cannabidiol, you do not have to worry about side effects affecting your sexual function. Sex is all about relaxation and CBD has the potential to naturally reach that state. So far, no side effects are known in studies, there were only slight interactions with drugs. Although seemingly safe, the use of CBD for improved sexual function, when combined with other drugs, should be discussed with a physician. Source: BOEDEFELD, Christian.

Can cannabinoids help in the treatment of rosacea?

Also called copper rose or fin, rosacea often occurs in adulthood. In the chronic inflammatory skin disease of the face especially the fine vessels of the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin are dilated and the skin is particularly red in these areas. Even the eyes can be affected. However, there are indications that cannabinoids and cannabis seeds can relieve the symptoms of the disease. Rosacea - explained brieflyThere are different forms of rosacea. Depending on the severity, various areas of the face are affected by the non-infectious, chronic inflammatory skin disease. Typically, especially the fine veins of the facial skin in the areas of the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin are widened and the facial areas are correspondingly reddened. Other signs may be bumpy pimples. The nose can also change as the disease progresses. Rosacea occurs in adulthood, usually between the ages of 30 and 50 years. Women are more affected than men, but the symptoms are usually more pronounced. Causes of rosaceaAbout the causes of rosacea can give no final information. Genetic factors seem to play a role in their development, since many sufferers of family members report the same symptoms. A role also seems to play the damage to the facial skin by UV rays. Solar radiation affects the connective tissue as well as blood and lymph vessels and makes a significant contribution to vascular dilation and inflammation. According to recent findings, dermatitis occurs as a result of a defective innate immune response. Factors that favor the symptoms of rosacea include stress, alcohol, sun exposure, warm drinks or spicy foods. The chronic course of the disease requires regular visits to the dermatologist. Care should be taken to avoid the above-mentioned factors that favor the disease. Typically, rosacea is treated with medication. In addition, it is extremely important to protect the affected areas from UV rays. This is where our endocannabinoid system comes into play. Among other things, the receptors of the regulatory system also occur in the skin and play a major role in the protection and regulation of our largest organ. Cannabinoids in the treatment of rosaceaBy regulating the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids can make a significant contribution to alleviating the symptoms of rosacea. The receptors of the regulatory system also occur in the skin and can affect the growth, functionality and balance of skin cells. Scientists have been able to show [1] that cannabinoids have a positive influence on the receptors of the skin and can promote anti-inflammatory or antioxidant properties. Meanwhile, various manufacturers are offering creams and ointments enriched with cannabis or hemp plant ingredients to help treat various inflammatory skin conditions with symptoms similar to rosacea. Clinical trials and laboratory studies [2] have shown that the anti-inflammatory effects of THC and CBD can help relieve redness and irritated skin. In addition, topical application of THC has been shown to reduce symptoms of allergic inflammation. In addition to cannabinoids, hemp seed oil has promising properties that may be of interest for the treatment of rosacea symptoms. Hempseed oil contains unsaturated fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid and oleic acid, which can reduce the inflammation of the skin. Polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6 can promote blood circulation and provide healthy vessels. After all, stress is considered a major factor that aggravates the symptoms of rosacea. With regular use, CBD can provide more balance and well-being, which could positively affect the course of the disease. Our skin and the endocannabinoid systemScientists have observed that inflammation of the skin or other irritating stimuli strongly increases the concentration of endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG in the skin. It is believed that the body thereby tries to reduce pain and inflammation. In addition, it was observed that pain and inflammation could be alleviated by the suppression of enzymes that degrade endocannabinoids. Through the production of anandamide and 2-AG, our body seems to be trying to circumvent the degradation of endocannabinoids and maintain their effect longer. In addition, the two endocannabinoids influence the development of skin cells. Especially for the epidermis, the uppermost skin layer, the endocannabinoid system seems to play a role with the receptors CB1 and CB2. Source: BOEDEFELD, Christian.

CBD against circulatory disorders

A number of problems an organism can develop in the course of a lifetime are associated with impaired blood flow and inadequate oxygenation of body parts and organs. These include minor cramping of the muscles in the extremities as well as stroke, in which areas of the brain are underserved and long-term brain damage can remain. Disturbed blood flowBlood flows through every part of our body, only dead cells such as hair and fingernails are not traversed by vessels that transport all imaginable nutrients to the smallest angles. Since our diet and our lifestyle also pollutants, fats and the like can enter our bloodstream, the blood flow in many parts of the body can be disturbed by deposits. In addition, with aging, the flexibility of our veins subsides, but also environmental influences and harmful habits like smoking can constrict the vessels. Small tingling and big risksRegardless of the causes of a circulatory disorder or where it is located, it is commonly referred to as ischemia (low blood flow). In the arms or legs show slight circulatory problems, in which the foot or leg begin to tingle, also cramps of the muscles are possible. The death of parts of the body, for example the well-known smoker's leg, can also be the result of a circulatory disorder. In even worse cases, ischemia threatens the heart or brain, and can lead to strokes and heart attacks, and thus become life threatening. Canes for ischemia?The fact that smoking is harmful, narrows the blood vessels and takes away their flexibility, many potheads regret, after all, it remains to this day, the most popular form of cannabis. On the other hand, the example of glaucoma, which is related to the intraocular pressure and blood flow of the eye, has long been proven that cannabis can improve hemodynamics, ie blood flow. Cannabidiol (CBD) has several effects on blood circulation. Both the soothing, relaxing effect that lowers blood pressure and the vasodilation effect may be important here. In the genesis of ischemic strokes, remarkable results have already been achieved through the use of CBD. In admittedly unsightly tests on rats, CBD has been able to minimize brain damage by 17 percent. CBD inhibits arteriosclerosisArterial calcification and deposits in the blood vessels are one of the main causes of ischemic diseases. Here cannabidiol is medically particularly interesting. Research from Switzerland now assumes that CBD can slow down the progression of arteriosclerosis caused by high blood sugar levels. This prevents ischemic diseases or influences existing ones positively. Since smoking cannabis (especially mixed with tobacco), even if it is a high CBD variety, is rather counterproductive, CBD oils and extracts, which are available as a dietary supplement, are suitable. What to look forOf course, if you suffer from a serious circulatory disorder, going to the doctor is not only compulsory but also the only sensible thing to do. The risks are too big here to carry out self-experiments. But of course you can certainly discuss the use of CBD products with the doctor. When choosing the product one should always keep in mind the entourage effect, according to which the effects of cannabinoids and terpenes favor and enhance one another. This also makes sense for ischemic symptoms, as the cannabinoid cannabigerol (CBG), for example, has an effect on blood pressure. It is therefore advisable to always use CBD products with the full spectrum of cannabis, ie full-spectrum CBD oils or full extracts. Manufacturers who work with rich raw materials and deliver quality will surely mark this on their labels. If only CBD is indicated on the packaging of an oil, and the oil may still be colorless, it can not necessarily be assumed that it contains an extract of all the active ingredients of the hemp plant. Source: KLAUS GLASMANN, Dieter.

CBD gegen Hautkrankheiten - nÃttzt Cannabidiol der Hautgesundheit?

CBD and skin diseases: Does cannabidiol help with atopic dermatitis?Atopic dermatitis is considered a particularly onerous skin disease, as it often occurs already in infancy. The face and scalp of the baby are already covered shortly after birth with the characteristic milk scab; on the insides of knees and elbows arise so-called flexion eczema. The scaly and weeping eczema on the skin is accompanied by tormenting itching, which robs those affected of their sleep and makes any skin contact - even wearing clothes - painful. In adults, the symptoms usually culminate in spurts, the triggers of which are often not clearly identified. Atopic dermatitis flare-ups occur when the affected immune system over-reacts to internal or external irritants. The triggers can be both specific foods and stressful situations. The idea of ​​using cannabidiol for the treatment of atopic dermatitis is obvious because the nerve fibers of the skin possess cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids have been shown to be involved in the regulation of the immune system. Cannabinoid ointment relieves eczema symptomsThe first attempt to treat atopic dermatitis patients with cannabinoids was undertaken by Munich scientists in 2008. They administered 2456 participants a skin cream with the cannabinoid N-palmitoylethanolamine (PEA). As a result, 60 percent of the subjects were able to reduce itching, redness, and flaking areas of the skin. More than half of the atopic dermatitis patients were also able to do without cortisone medication.  ObCBD as cannabinoid could achieve comparable effects in people with neurodermatitis, has not yet been investigated in clinical trials. Its anti-inflammatory effect, which can suppress excessive immune system responses, has been confirmed in animal studies. On the basis of previous findings, scientists call CBD and cannabidiol containing preparations as a possible future remedy for skin diseases such as eczema, but also acne, contact allergies, psoriasis and itching.  CBD for common skin diseases: Does cannabidiol have an effect on acne?To call acne a skin disease, many people consider exaggerated. In fact, statistically, around 75 to 90 percent of teenagers worldwide suffer from acne-like skin changes. In about 10 percent of those affected, however, this symptom persists in adulthood and causes physical and mental discomfort. In the process, acne does not result from unhealthy diets or poor hygiene - in fact, the pimples and pustules are the result of dysregulation of certain skin cells: both the sebaceous glands and the horn-forming cells appear overactive here. While sebum is increasingly produced, the horny cells close the exits of the sebaceous follicles. The skin fat does not drain, but offers bacteria such as the Propionibacterium acnes a breeding ground and it comes to inflammation. CBD regulates the activity of certain skin cellsAt least, laboratory tests suggest that CBD, through the activation of the type 4 vanilloid receptor, reduces both the productivity of the sebaceous cells, as well as the horn-forming activity through other mechanisms Cells (keratinocytes) inhibits. Both effects could have a positive effect on the symptoms of acne. Also in psoriasis, which is also characterized by an overactivity of the horn-forming cells, the regulative action of CBD could possibly be beneficial. However, clinical studies that would confirm a positive effect on acne or psoriasis are still missing at this time. Cannabidiol for severe skin diseasesHowever, concrete case reports on the effect of CBD on skin diseases are available elsewhere: Epidermolysis bullosa is a serious inherited skin disease that can even lead to death. Those affected suffer from painful wounds, scars and adhesions that limit the range of motion. The symptom picture is sometimes called "butterfly skin" because the epidermis of the patient seems to be as sensitive as the wing of a butterfly. Could CBD be useful here? An indication can be found in the medical literature. Here is the report of 3 epidermolysis bullosa patients who used CBD oil on the skin. All reported better wound healing, less blistering, and reduced pain from the therapy. One of the patients was even able to do without the opioid painkillers he usually took for the symptoms.  CBD on the skin - does it work in the entire organism?If you use CBD oil or cream, you should be aware that the ingredients are not only local, but also absorbed into the bloodstream. Cannabidiol even reaches the blood 10 times more effectively via the so-called transdermal passage than the psychoactive ingredient THC.  CBD oil or cream - what is best for the application on the skin?While CBD oil is dripped under the tongue, taking cannabidiol through the oral mucosa into the bloodstream, CBD cream and CBD balm develop their effect directly on the skin. Quality products are characterized by the fact that they are based on a full-spectrum extract. In addition to CBD, this contains other cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes, and in this way favors the so-called Entourage effect. Scientists assume that different cannabinoids increase each other's beneficial effects. High-quality CBD creams also contain no artificial preservatives, dyes and fragrances. Only vitamin E, which acts as an effective antioxidant, prevents the cream from spoiling on contact with oxygen. Natural oils and vegetable fats such as shea butter or mango butter additionally help the skin to retain its own moisture and make it supple. Source: CBD gegen Hautkrankheiten – nützt Cannabidiol der Hautgesundheit? 1 [online]. 21 Aug,2019, Dostupné z: https://fivebloom.de/blogs/cbd-news/cbd-gegen-hautkrankheiten source photo: https://pixabay.com/cs/

Hemp protein for muscle growth - what are the benefits?

Children in growth, strength athletes and seniors - for some people, proteins in the diet are particularly important. An increased need supports those affected best with protein powder. But instead of powder from animal raw materials, herbal products can provide the desired nutrients. Hemp protein is currently very much in vogue here. What are its advantages, you will learn in the following: Who needs extra proteins at all?Proteins are the building materials of our body and, above all, form our muscles. No wonder then that strength athletes and bodybuilders have an increased need. While an unsportsmanlike person manages with about one gram of protein per kilogram of body weight every day, the human powerhouses need about 1.8 to 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram. To meet this amount, a 90-pound bodybuilder would have to eat 800g of beef steak a day. On the other hand, the increased protein intake works lighter and healthier with protein powders from whey, soy and hemp. What's so special about hemp protein?About 100 years ago, the German nutritionist Karl Thomas developed the model of the biological value of protein. It generally ranked animal foods higher than herbal foods and stuck in the minds of consumers for a long time. Today researchers know that this equation does not correspond to reality. The WHO is using the amino acid index (PDCAAS), currently a completely revised scale, which shows that plants such as soy exceed beef in their biological value for the human body. But also hemp has a comparable protein quality as soy. In particular, the following amino acids contain hemp seeds in a high proportion:isoleucineleucinelysinemethioninephenylalaninethreoninetryptophanvalineHemp or soy - what makes the difference?Even in the body-building scene you can find the trend towards a vegan diet. Not surprisingly, considering how much cholesterol and fat it brings with it to try to meet high protein requirements with animal products. Not to mention dubious housing conditions. Therefore, strength athletes like to choose soy products as a vegan protein powder variant. But this raw material has its own disadvantages. Since today's soybean varieties are optimized for beef and pork fattening, it has often been genetically modified. In addition, soybean cultivation is ecologically dubious if it falls victim to huge rainforest areas in South America. Which ingredients are still in hemp protein?Although the hemp seeds are degreased for the production of hemp protein, the powder still contains about 10 percent fat. Hemp is particularly rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6. In addition, both fats are contained in hemp seeds in a particularly favorable ratio. Today, research knows that many inflammatory reactions in the body can be attributed to an overhang of omega-6 fats. It could thus be an essential risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases. In the western diet, we sometimes take in 15 to 20 times the amount of omega-6 fatty acids compared to omega-3 fatty acids. On the other hand, a ratio of 5: 1 is recommended. Hemp seeds are even slightly lower with a ratio of 3: 1 and help to compensate for nutritional errors. Which dose is recommended?As already recommended: If you practice weight lifting intensively, you should consume 1.8 g of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. And not just on training days. Ideally, you use a nutrition calculator to calculate how much protein your daily meals will provide. What is missing then, you can balance with hemp protein powder. The powder tastes best with its nutty and earthy flavor in smoothies, shakes and cereals. What do I have to look for when shopping?You should buy hemp protein only in organic quality and pay attention to a certified cultivation and regular pollutant examinations. Since hemp protein contains around 10 percent fat, you should store the powder in the refrigerator after it has opened so that it does not turn rancid. Source: GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus.
