Use cannabidiol for cellulite

access_time14. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

Our skin is a big and very important organ of the body. It also partially reflects our internal health. That is why the skin is also a topic that the developers of cannabidiol-containing products are concerned about. There are now plenty of CBD creams, ointments and lotions on the market for daily care, for speeding up the healing process of minor injuries or especially for various skin diseases. Of course you can also provide your skin with the helpful cannabinoid by applying the same CBD oil that you also take orally. The health benefits of CBD oil Cannabidiol is a natural and largely harmless substance derived from the cannabis plant. This is done by means of different extraction methods. The extract thus produced is added to a carrier oil, usually this is an olive or hemp seed oil. A good extract contains a complete extract of the active ingredients of the cannabis plant. Thus cannabidiol and the other cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes can exert all the positive effects on the endocannabinoid system and the whole body for which the plant has long been known: pain relief, reduction of depression and anxiety, protection of nerve cells and much more. In addition to the effects on the internal organs can also cure many skin complaints with CBD oils. What can CBD oil do for cellulite? Cannabidiol is an all-rounder for skin care and the treatment of skin diseases. It can be used against inflammation, itching or for wound healing. It should even support the positive course of treatment of skin cancer. The entourage effect, as the interaction of the cannabis active ingredients is called, is particularly noticeable in the application for the skin. CBD acts as an antioxidant for the skin, it binds free radicals, which promote skin aging, diseases and also cancer. For cellulite, another feature of CBD comes into play. Because it promotes blood flow in the vessels, the whole skin is better supplied with nutrients and pollutants removed. How best to use CBD for the skin? Whether you prefer to use a cannabidiol-containing care product or swears rather on the CBD oil, everyone must decide based on his experience and preferences. In general, the use of CBD oils on the skin also works very well, but this can be quite expensive when applied over a larger area of ​​skin. Therefore, the topical use of a CBD oil is particularly suitable for the treatment of small wounds or irritated skin. For general care, CBD beauty products are best. The CBD oil does not have to be set aside for that. Because applied internally, so ingested, cannabidiol works everywhere in the body, thus in the skin cells.   Source:  GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus Glasmann.

Can cannabinoids help in the treatment of rosacea?

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

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 briefly There 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 rosacea About 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 rosacea By 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 system Scientists 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.

The anti-oxidative properties of CBD

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

Many nutrition experts and counselors point out how important antioxidants are to our health and well-being. But what exactly is behind these substances? What qualities do they possess and how can our bodies benefit from them?   Simply put, antioxidants are substances that inhibit oxidation and reduce the associated so-called oxidative stress. During oxidation, waste products are formed in our body and free radicals are formed.   The body's own antioxidants, such as glutathione, are usually insufficient to prevent the production of free radicals. This is especially the case with increasing age, as the oxidative stress increases with increasing age. That is why it is important to supply the body with antioxidants from the diet.   Actually, oxygen is associated with life. That's true, of course, but in this case our body produces the already mentioned free radicals by oxidation of other substances (reaction with oxygen).   From them, a kind of chain reaction can occur in which molecules, cells or tissue can be damaged or irreparably destroyed. By reacting with them, antioxidants protect against free radicals.   CBD as an antioxidant For a long time, vitamins such as C and E were among the most powerful antioxidants. In terms of mode of action, cannabidiol does not really differ from an antioxidant. The chemical structure of the cannabinoid contains an oxygen atom that can be released to free radicals and thus neutralizes them. This free oxygen compound is responsible for the antioxidant effects of CBD.   Several studies even confirm that the cannabinoids THC and CBD have a significant neuroprotective effect as antioxidants, which is many times stronger than for vitamins C and E.   Conclusion Antioxidants are extremely important to our body. Without them, free radicals can cause immense damage. By providing oxygen atoms, antioxidants can neutralize the harmful compounds, making a vital contribution to our health.   In addition to vitamins C and E, cannabidiol has become a good source of antioxidants. Although more research is needed in this area, the results obtained to date are quite promising and provide insight into the antioxidant potential of CBD.   In addition, CBD could also keep neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's at bay. The potential of cannabinoid is huge. Unfortunately, it is difficult to make general statements and the effectiveness of CBD is best tested by yourself.   Every organism responds differently and should be slowly accustomed to using CBD as a nutritional supplement. Although no serious side effects of CBD are known, consult a doctor if you have any concerns about taking it.   Source:  BOEDEFELD, Christian.

How does CBD work? - An overview

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

Cannabidiol is a versatile drug with a wide range of uses. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. This means that it has no intoxicating effect on our central nervous system and does not affect our perception.   CBD has a calming effect and can help fight inflammation, pain, cramps, anxiety, nausea and general wellbeing. Somehow or other, the effect of CBD is often described. The effect is mainly due to the activation of our cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. Today it is proven that cannabinoids have a therapeutic benefit in various diseases. Nonetheless, the question of the actual effect of CBD often crops up. How does CBD actually work?   CBD is analgesic The analgesic effect of cannabidiol has been demonstrated in numerous studies. By activating certain receptors, CBD influences pain perception. The spectrum of impact is very versatile. CBD can help with pain caused by an inflammatory condition such as arthritis. In addition, the cannabinoid is able to inhibit chronic pain, migraine or menstrual cramps.   CBD is anti-inflammatory Cannabidiol can reduce acute and chronic inflammation in the body. For this reason, CBD is also often used to treat inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, in asthma or arthritis. Also, for chronic inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis, the topical application of CBD may be helpful.   CBD is anorexic Cannabinoid CBD reduces appetite and can help you lose weight. The appetite-suppressing effect is also interesting in the context of a conscious lifestyle. This mechanism of action is due to the blockade of a specific receptor of our endocannabinoid system and is used, for example, to treat obesity.   CBD is antiemetic The effect against nausea and nausea is interesting in many ways. Not only is CBD a perfect traveling companion to help against travel sickness, it can also reduce the nausea associated with chemotherapy. As with the anorectic effect of CBD, cannabinoid receptors of our endocannabinoid system play a crucial role.   CBD is anti-kinetic Several clinical studies provide evidence for the sedative effect of CBD on the gastrointestinal tract. A disturbed digestive system can decisively affect our well-being. Not to forget that the gut plays a crucial role in our immune system and general well-being.   CBD has an anxiolytic effect CBD can relieve anxiety and the symptoms it causes. CBD binds to adenosine and serotonin receptors in the spinal cord, which are activated by drugs in mental illness. Including depression and anxiety. The anxiety-calming and soothing effect can help to look at situations from a different angle and reassess them.   CBD is neuroleptic CBD affects the nervous system and has been shown to reduce the loss of reality, hallucinations and delusions.   CBD is antiepileptic The effective effect of epilepsy has been confirmed in some studies, many of which benefit. In conjunction with other antiepileptic therapies, seizure frequency has been reduced in patients with previously refractory epilepsy forms.   CBD is antispasmodic Cramping and tension can be resolved by CBD. Especially in MS-induced spasticity the cannabidiol shows a promising effect.   CBD is anti-insomniac As it turns out, the active ingredient CBD also seems to serve as a sleep aid. Many users report a significant improvement in sleep when taking CBD on a regular basis. This is not least because of the calming effect. It can make it easier to fall asleep and sleep through the night.   CBD is immunosuppressive CB2 receptors affect our immune system and are involved in a variety of functions such as immunosuppression. So far, there are only animal studies, but these show an effective effect of CBD in allergies and hypersensitivity.   CBD is anti-diabetic Scientists suggest that CBD could prevent diabetes and reduce consequences. Inflammation of the pancreas in type 1 diabetes affects insulin production. Due to the anti-inflammatory effect CBD can be used there. Due to its additional effect on circulatory disorders, CBD is also of interest in type 2 diabetes.   CBD is neuroprotective A WHO report on the effects of CBD also mentions the neuroprotective effect.    Conclusion The endoannabinoid system of the human body consists of a network of receptors that are distributed throughout our body and not infrequently, an imbalance of this system is responsible for complaints. Cannabidiol can restore homeostasis. The primary receptors CB1 and CB2 are transmitters and receivers of messenger substances and can be activated and stimulated by cannabinoids. While the CB1 receptor is responsible for controlling the nervous system, the CB2 receptor affects our immune system.   The spectrum of action of CBD is huge. In any case, it should be noted that substances vary from person to person and that general statements on dosage and effects are difficult. Important is the regular intake of CBD. It is best integrated into everyday life as a dietary supplement in order to best benefit from the medical potential of cannabinoids.   Source:  BOEDEFELD, Christian.

CBD against circulatory disorders

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

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 flow Blood 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 risks Regardless 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 arteriosclerosis Arterial 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 for Of 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 for the treatment of brain tumors

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

Recently, new study results were published in a research project at St. George's University of London in collaboration with the Dove Clinic. Dr. Julian Kenyon, dr. Wai Liu and Angus Dalleish demonstrate a reduction in the size of ependymomas, both in childhood (pediatric) and adults, through the medical use of cannabidiol.   Ependymomas are defined as certain types of tumors that make up about 5 to 10% of all brain tumors (gliomas). In children, they are the third most common cancer of the central nervous system. As ependymomas of the cerebrum, they appear at any age, while in the posterior fossa they occur mainly in childhood, and in the spinal cord more in adulthood.   Strong decline of tumor cells A number of case studies of cancer patients were examined, including brain tumor patients. These were administered pharmaceutical grade quality oil based on a synthetic form of CBD. Data were collected and evaluated over four years as part of the treatment of 119 cancer patients at the Dove Clinic. In 92 percent of cases, CBD medication was seen to improve upon repeated brain scans. Either in the form of a reduction of the tumor cells that cause metastases (circulating tumor cells), or in the form of a reduction in tumor size. However, in brain tumors of adult patients who had lost their size due to CBD, the tumor continued to grow after discontinuation of cannabidiol, which then resumed treatment with the drug. According to the researchers, this study should not be entitled to comprehensive findings. It should rather be an impetus for further investigations, which are undoubtedly justified by the results. If convincing evidence is provided, pharmaceutical grade CBD oil can be made more widely available and cheaper, researchers hope. In the research on cannabis as a medicine, and on the therapeutic use of CBD in particular, there is still a lot of work to be done to understand which type of CBD oil is most effective and in which dose it can best produce the best effect , The many synergy effects with other treatment measures need to be further explored, as well as the effects of diet and lifestyle habits.   Increased chances of survival In another study conducted by British biopharmaceutical company GW Pharmaceuticals, cannabis (1: 1) agents were administered to one group of brain tumor patients, one to another. Both were given in addition to the respective standard therapy in patients with particularly poor survival prognoses (the patients had relapsing glioblastoma multiforme, called GBM for short). While almost half of the patients in the placebo group did not survive the following year (47 percent), the drug group had a survival rate of 83 percent over the same period. On average, one patient survived the drug group for 550 days and one member of the placebo group only 369.   No "do-it-yourself" medicine The cautionary note, which I already pronounce for less severe illnesses, is all the more important in the case of cancer and similarly serious illnesses. If you have a bad illness, first of all you should consult the specialist for his diagnosis. In the case of illness, it should be refrained from experimenting on its own with any CBD oils around. The study's leaders expressly point out the differences in the qualities of various oils, so it is by no means advisable to self-medicate without consultation with the doctor.   Source:  GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus.

How does CBD affect the irritable bowel?

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

The so-called irritable bowel syndrome (RDS) is actually no exact name of a specific disease. Rather, this term collects a number of inflammatory bowel diseases of different causes and manifestations.   There are variants such as Crohn's disease, which actually go beyond the symptoms of RDS, because in Crohn's disease, the small intestine is affected, while the classic RDS occurs only in the colon. Nearly half of all cases in which a patient is referred to the gastroenterologist (gastrointestinal specialist) are related to the widespread disease.   How is the irritable bowel syndrome diagnosed? Unequivocally diagnosing irritable bowel syndrome is a complicated affair. Often the symptoms can also be associated with other diseases, therefore, confusion often happen. This can often be avoided by having a good and detailed history that the doctor should really take time to do. It includes information about the period of the disease, About changes in the toilet habits and the like, which can lead the doctor on the right track. If the suspected diagnosis is in the first place, various blood tests, colonoscopy and other imaging techniques, as well as the examination of a stool sample are necessary to ensure a reliable diagnosis.   How is irritable bowel syndrome treated? Since the irritable bowel is a widespread widespread disease, there are a lot of funds available, with which one can provide relief. For mild symptoms, a diet that dispenses with a range of short-chain carbohydrates and polyhydric alcohols can help. Depending on whether the condition is more likely to be constipated or diarrhea, a laxative or anti-drainage drug may be administered. In general, the increased intake of fiber is recommended. Psyllium husks and barley have proven to be particularly useful. Camomile, myrrh and coffee charcoal are also considered to be very effective in relieving symptoms. To restore a healthy intestinal flora, the use of so-called probiotics (bacterial strains) was helpful.   Although the pharmaceutical industry has also developed some products for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, these are often associated with side effects that do not justify their use for many people. The natural alternatives are clearly to be preferred here.   What Can CBD Do For Irritable Bowel Syndrome? In 2004, the neurologist and former president of the International Association for Cannabis as Medicine, Ethan Russo, linked irritable bowel syndrome to the endocannabinoid system or deficits in a publication. Russo points to studies showing that malfunctions in the endocannabinoid system can cause inflammatory bowel disease. Consequently, cannabis can effectively remedy this situation. At first, it was claimed that cannabidiol (CBD) alone was not enough, but THC was also needed. This claim has since been revised, and it has been found that CBD is an important agent in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, which can both fight inflammation and regulate the function of glial cells (cells in the nervous tissue, but which are not neurons) , The immunomodulatory properties of CBD have been shown to positively affect disease progression and symptoms in studies. CBD can be of great help even in the severe Crohn's disease, and most recent research has yielded very promising results, making CBD a real hope for many gastrointestinal patients.   Source:  GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus.

Hemp protein for muscle growth - what are the benefits?

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

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: isoleucine leucine lysine methionine phenylalanine threonine tryptophan valine Hemp 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.

What is Cannabis Drug (CBC)?

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

Cannabis Cirrus (CBC) is one of over 100 cannabinoids. Although the phytocannabinoid itself has no analgesic effect, it is believed to play an important role in relieving pain and inflammation.   Besides CBD and THC, cannabis is a less well-known cannabinoid. CBC is not psychoactive and it is believed that it can significantly enhance the effects of other cannabinoids. Thus, it could play an important role in the entourage effect.   In 1966, science first became aware of CBC. Although the drug is not receiving much attention, the potential of CBC is quite promising. Researchers believe it plays a key role in the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of CBD and THC, and that CBCA is formed from the acid.   How does CBC work? Like all other cannabinoids, CBC interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of our endocannabinoid system. In addition, cannabis bromide also affects the receptors TRPA1 and TRPV1. These channels play a central role in signal transmission and the sensation of pain.   CBC is considered to be one of the most abundant cannabinoids and is the third most common phytocannabinoid after THC and CBD - a strong argument for more intensive research into its potential.   The meaning of CBC In cannabis, the combined effect of individual cannabinoids, also referred to as the entourage effect, plays a crucial role. This means that cannabis chromosomes can make an important contribution to the effects of THC or CBD as well as other compounds. This is also the reason why patients with full-spectrum extracts have the best experience.   It's not that there's no data on the medical potential of cannabis chromosomes at all. In 2016, the Journal for Experimental Dermatology published a study ) examining the efficacy of CBC and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids in the treatment of acne and other skin problems ,   The data collected suggest that CBC, CBDV and THCV may inhibit the onset of acne. In addition, all cannabinoids showed a promising anti-inflammatory effect.   CBC  In the 1970s, it was found that CBC was found mainly in Indian landrace varieties. By crossing and creating new varieties with a high THC content and altered genetic make-up, it may now be difficult to find plants of comparable value to those of the past.   Analysis results of medical strains such as Bedrocan, which is issued in German pharmacies, show how small the proportion of CBC is still. In the case of Bedrocan, the analysis shows a level of 0.01-0.12% CBD.   Source:  BOEDEFELD, Christian.

What are phytocannabinoids?

access_time24. october 2019 personEditor Testovací

Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced by plants. Mainly these agents are found in cannabis plants. However, there are also indications that phytocannabinoids are also formed by other plants. Just like endocannabinoids, they activate our cannabinoid receptors.   The plant genus Cannabis Sativa contains more than 100 phytocannabinoids, which belong to the group of so-called terpephenols. The best-known phytocannabinoids include THC and CBD. This group of substances has not been discovered in any other plant. Phytocannabinoids activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system and thereby produce their characteristic effect.   The active ingredients are agonists (that is, the occupation of a receptor activates a process) or antagonists (the activation inhibits a cell process) of the CB1 or CB2 receptors. Phytocannabinoids have a high potential for use as medicine.   The counterpart to this are endogenous cannabinoids. They are produced by our bodies themselves and are involved in metabolic processes and other important tasks. The two most important endocannabinoids include anandamide, 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG).   Our endogenous cannabinoid system consists of countless receptors distributed throughout our body. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain, while the immune system and central nervous system are mostly CB2 receptors. It is believed that our endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining the balance in the body and plays an important role in our well-being.   The most important phytocannabinoids Tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) THC is probably the best-known phytocannabinoid and provides the psychoactive effect of cannabis use. This is precisely the reason why cannabis is considered illegal in many parts of the world. It can affect mood and appetite and is known for its anti-inflammatory effects.   Cannabidiol (CBD) At least as well known is CBD. Cannabidiol is valued above all for its therapeutic properties, which as a dietary supplement is an ideal enrichment to the daily diet. It is not psychoactive and is legally available in many countries in the form of oils or creams.   Cannabigerol (CBG) CBG is considered the precursor of most other phytocannabinoids. The cannabinoid is thought to have a variety of therapeutic uses, with studies suggesting that it is even more effective than CBD in certain conditions. Over time, enzymes from the plant convert cannabigerol into other cannabinoids, which is why the level in the "finished" plant is relatively low.   Cannabidivarin (CBDV) CBDV is another non-psychoactive cannabinoid. The chemical structure is very similar to CBD and the use of cannabidivarin in the treatment of epilepsy is currently under investigation.   Cannabichromene (CBC) CBC is a cannabinoid that could be of interest for its medicinal properties. Studies give an idea of ​​how CBC produces antigens in tumor cells by activating CB2 receptors that are cleared by immune cells. In addition, the use of cannabichromene in Alzheimer's therapy is discussed.   Of course, these are just a small selection of the most popular phytocannabinoids. Currently, more than 100 phytocannabinoids of the cannabis plant are known, which unfold their unique effect, the entourage effect.   Phytocannabinoids play an important role in our endocannabinoid system. Although some progress has already been made in research, more efforts are needed to unlock the full potential of these compounds.   Source:  BOEDEFELD, Christian.
