Use cannabidiol for cellulite

access_time14.October 2019personEditor 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 oilCannabidiol 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 CBD improve the sex life?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor Testovací

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?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor 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 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.

How does cannabidiol help against tension?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor Testovací

Countless reports and studies have confirmed the beneficial effects of cannabidiol, or CBD, for many ailments. And because of the experimental mood that people are developing when using extracts, crystals or oils that are now readily available online or in stores, more and more complaints are coming up on the list of diseases that CBD can help with. What are tensions and where do they come from?Hardly anyone will call tension a disease, and yet it is the pain and unpleasant sensations that can diminish the quality of life, and, above all, affect a large part of the people sooner or later.Almost everyone, regardless of whether they do physical work or have a desk job, is tense due to wrong or too little exercise, overuse, but mostly due to incorrect posture while sitting, at some point in life. Because of the frequency with which tensions due to malposition also occur without other physical overload, she was formerly called "secretary's disease". The musculoskeletal system is over-stimulated and causes discomfort. Usually the shoulders and the neck are affected, but the hyperacidity of the cells, which leads to the hardened muscles and ultimately to the tension, is possible in each one-sided loaded muscle. How does cannabinoid CBD generally work?Anyone who researches the effects of CBD will quickly have reason to hope for a positive influence of the cannabinoid on tension. Generally, cannabidiol is known to have a relaxing effect on the body, and this may not be wrong in the case of muscle hardening. The circulation-enhancing effect should also improve the oxygenation in the tense muscles and thereby additionally relax them. And also as a painkiller CBD can be used here. Since the symptoms often lead to the patient unconsciously moving into so-called postural conditions, which aggravate the tensions and can trigger other illnesses, the analgesic function is of short-term as well as long-term importance, because alleviating acute symptoms such as headache Dizziness also creates a situation that will allow the patient to relax first.Which is the right kind of application?CBD can therefore be versatile against tension. And just as versatile are the ways in which CBD can be administered. Of course, oils, extracts or crystals for internal use are a good base for supporting healing. But Cannabidiol can also be excellently applied and massaged directly onto the affected part of the body. Is CBD sufficient as treatment alone?If the patient has severe and permanent pain from the tensions that affect his quality of life lasting, then the way to the doctor is the only correct. For really extreme tensions, injecting a painkiller directly into the body part may be the way for some. However, whether for these serious cases or for all people suffering from tension, CBD can support and accelerate the healing process in a variety of ways. Of course, patients should take into account that the causes of tension must also be eliminated, for example the malpositions. With its wide range of effects and applications from the acute to the chronic area, CBD can be integrated into the everyday life of people with tension free from unwanted side effects. Such a lot of positive effects and easy availability make CBD a valuable tool that you might want to give a place in the medicine cabinet. Source: KLAUS GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus Glasmann.

How does CBD work? - An overview

access_time24.October 2019personEditor 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 analgesicThe 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-inflammatoryCannabidiol 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 anorexicCannabinoid 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 antiemeticThe 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-kineticSeveral 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 effectCBD 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 neurolepticCBD affects the nervous system and has been shown to reduce the loss of reality, hallucinations and delusions. CBD is antiepilepticThe 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 antispasmodicCramping and tension can be resolved by CBD. Especially in MS-induced spasticity the cannabidiol shows a promising effect. CBD is anti-insomniacAs 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 immunosuppressiveCB2 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-diabeticScientists 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 neuroprotectiveA WHO report on the effects of CBD also mentions the neuroprotective effect.  ConclusionThe 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.

POSSIBILITIES AND EFFECT OF CBD IN REGULAR PAIN

access_time24.October 2019personEditor Testovací

Many girls and women suffer from severe discomfort during their days. Abdominal cramps, headaches and general malaise are not uncommon. Sometimes the symptoms are so severe that it is difficult to cope with everyday life. Cannabidiol, also called CBD, has been used for millennia as an effective remedy for menstrual problems. CBD for menstrual pain you can take in different ways and thereby provide relief for menstrual problems. THE CAUSE OF REGULAR PAINTo understand why women and girls often suffer from menstrual cramps and why CBD can help against menstrual pain, we first need to look closely at the processes in the female body. In the course of the female cycle, which lasts for an average of 28 days, the uterus forms a heavily perfused and thick mucous membrane. If you became pregnant, this layer of mucus would serve as a breeding ground for the fertilized egg to keep it safe. However, if there is no fertilization, the body repels this mucous membrane again. This mucous layer is thus eliminated with your period. For this process to happen, the muscles in the uterus work and create contractions. The previously heavily perfused tissue is then less supplied with blood. It comes to menstrual cramps. These cramps are perceived differently by every woman. For some, this pain can be very strong - to the point of unbearable - fail. CBD for menstrual pain is now used by many women to relieve the symptoms of menstrual cramps. Why? You will find out here. CBD IN USE FOR MILLIONSAccording to cannabinoid researchers, the beneficial effects of hemp have been known since antiquity, especially in gynecology. However, the first written document comes only from the 11th century. In an Old English herbarium hemp is recommended as a remedy for painful breasts. Fleetwood Churchill, an English physician, writer and obstetrician, first recommended cannabis for use in the cervical area in 1849. Indian hemp has also been used to stimulate and improve uterine contractions at birth. Against regular pain, the mode of action of this Indian hemp was repeatedly used and proven. Especially the pain-relieving and pain-preventing effect of hemp has been highlighted in many gynecology and obstetrics textbooks, such as those by Grailey Hewitt. Likewise, a whole collection of studies dealing with hemp against gynecology led Dr. Russo, recommending the use of hemp with feverfew. This combination should be taken before and during the period to relieve symptoms. The fact is that the analgesic effect of cannabidiol has been known for 4,000 years. HOW CBD WORKSThere are natural cannabinoids in every human organism. These fulfill the function of messenger substances, which take over the communication between the cells in the nervous system. If you use CBD as a medicine, the drug will affect these endocannabinoids. Because the molecules of CBD adhere to those receptors that are responsible for the transmission of pain signals. These are blocked so that the sensation of pain is reduced. The result is the relaxation of the muscles and the natural release of cramps. In this way, the painful symptoms of menstruation are alleviated and the well-being increased. Incidentally, according to the current state of research, no side effects of CBD have yet been detected. HOW YOU CAN TAKE CBD AGAINST REGULAR PAINTo take CBD for menstrual problems, you have different options to choose from. On the one hand, there is the CBD oil that you just dribble under the tongue. Furthermore, there are capsules that contain crystalline CBD or preparations that act by massaging the lower part of the abdomen. However, pay special attention to the dosage in order to obtain the desired effect. INJECTION AND DOSE OF CBD OILCBD oil you get in different concentrations. For beginners are 5 percent in the oil. But there are also oils with a CBD content of up to 25 percent. In most cases, the vials are equipped with a pipette, with which you easily drip the oil on or under the tongue. In this way, the active ingredient of CBD gets directly into your body. After a quarter to half an hour, the effect unfolds completely. CBD oil is best used in the morning and in the evening. If necessary, you can also often resort to the oil. THE RIGHT DOSAGE OF CBD CAPSULESAlso in capsule form you get CBD in different concentrations. Unlike the oil, the effect of the CBD Ka occurs  Source: MÖGLICHKEITEN UND WIRKUNG VON CBD BEI REGELSCHMERZEN. 1 [online]. 16 Oct, 2019.

GPR55 - The new cannabinoid receptor

access_time24.October 2019personEditor Testovací

His discovery is actually almost 20 years back, but only today he gains attention and importance. Meanwhile, the receptor called GPR55 also becomes CB3, the third relevant cannabinoid receptor in the human endogenous cannabinoid system. Endocannabinoid systemUntil quite some time ago, we knew that THC, which resembles the endogenous cannabinoid anandamide, binds to receptors in the brain, and as a result has an effect on our body. In the meantime, we know about the endocannabinoid system, which allows humans to use endocannabinoids, which the body itself produces, to perform a variety of health and immune functions. This system also harnesses the cannabinoids that we infuse from the outside by taking cannabis. The CB1 receptorSo far, two receptors are known, which are simply described with CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptor can bind to both THC and CBD. Because they "compete" for the CB1 receptor during the effect of cannabis in the body, and CBD is not known to be psychoactive, CBD cushions the "high" effect of THC. These receptors are found mainly in the central nervous system, thus affecting the sensation of pain and also the motor skills, but also emotions, memory and appetite. The CB2 receptorThe CB2 receptor is found in organs of the immune system, mast cells and lymphocytes. While cannabis is believed to affect the immune system, the assumption that CBD interacts directly with the CB2 receptor is outdated. Rather, it seems that the cannabinoids cause the body to use more of its own endocannabinoids. CBD, GPR55 and cancerThe receptor GPR55, which was discovered in 1999 and can be found in the brain and peripheral nervous system, seems to be able to work with many different cannabinoids. It has differences to CB1 and CB2, but is 13 percent identical in construction to CB1 and 14.4 percent to CB2. One might now assume that cannabidiol (CBD) might dock specifically to the CB3 receptor. However, this does not seem to be the case, CBD even blocks the receptor. But this does not mean that CBD is useless for the receptor or for the medical influence of it, on the contrary. GPR55 signaling is said to be associated with the development or progression of cancer. Thus, the use of CBD targeted to block the signal transmission inhibit the growth of some tumors. CBD, GPR55 and epilepsyAlthough the diseases do not resemble each other, the apparent effect of CBD in epilepsy can be explained by the same principle as cancer. Among other things, GPR55 also occur in the hippocampus, the area of ​​the brain in which spatial orientation and long-term memory are located. CBD has shown significant improvements in the intensity, quantity, and duration of seizures in some forms of epilepsy. CBD, GPR55 and irritable bowel syndromeCBD also has a positive influence on this intestinal disease. Fast and permanent improvement of well-being and relief of symptoms is reported. And again, this is associated with inhibition of signal transduction from GPR55. But in irritable bowel syndrome, it is also the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, the help in the most chronic stomach and intestinal disorders. Only the beginningMany details about the CB3 receptor and the role it plays in our health are still unclear. But this concerns the whole endogenous cannabinoid system and its receptors, the cannabinoids, whether endogenous or supplied, and the terpenes and their many interactions and possible interactions with our bodies. But with every new insight, the accuracy with which we can use the properties of the cannabis plant for our health increases. Source: KLAUS GLASMANN, Dieter.

CBD gegen Hautkrankheiten - nÃttzt Cannabidiol der Hautgesundheit?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor Testovací

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/

Is CBD suitable for children?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor Testovací

Cannabis contains many pharmacologically interesting properties, which are primarily responsible for two groups of substances, cannabinoids and terpenes. Among the cannabinoids, Δ9-trans-tetrahydrocannabinol, THC for short, has been of particular interest over the last decades, especially in the area of ​​consumption. Only a few years ago, a second cannabinoid has been recognized by science and the public, making it the most interesting agent of hemp for many people today, especially for those who do not want it intoxicating. Of course we are talking about cannabidiol (CBD), a molecular compound that can have a lot of medicinal functions without the psychoactive effects that THC has. Cannabidiol is harmless and healthy at the same timeSince CBD has proven to be very useful and harmless, legal cannabinoid has made it into a variety of health-promoting agents for external and internal use. Whether for consumption in food or dietary supplements, or even applied to the skin by ointments, tinctures or creams, CBD has become the trend of the health and wellness industry. In addition, it remains interesting for medical research and practice. Epilepsy, sleep disorders, anxiety disorders, ADHD and many other diseases can be treated successfully with cannabidiol. The contradictory treatment of CBDSome of the conditions for which CBD promises relief, such as epilepsy and ADHD, affect children in particular. Entering specialty stores whose product ranges are CBD cannabis products, however, may generally be entered only from the age of 18 years. Thus, it is quite understandable that some people are unsure about whether CBD can cause harm to children. If it is not psychoactive and harmless, can it then be administered to a child on a private basis, so that it also benefits from the health benefits? Do you have to hide your CBD products from your children, or can you keep them accessible to them? How compatible is the safety of cannabidiol with the age restrictions that CBD shops are subject to? Cannabidiol in public and legal perceptionTo understand these circumstances, one has to take a closer look at several factors. The legal situation that exists for CBD is due to the fact that cannabidiol is still an active ingredient derived from cannabis. This and the THC content which is often present in CBD products, even if in very low concentrations, justify the age restrictions for CBD shops. Of course, the fact that they mostly sell smokers and smokers in addition to CBD oils and Co. is also a good reason not to let minors into the shops. Thus, the legal position for CBD could change in parts insofar as an assortment includes only products with no THC content and no goods associated with smoking or other non-intoxicating cannabis applications. Health food stores or pharmacies offering hemp products are not subject to such age restrictions. It is therefore also a question of the milieu, with which the CBD products surround themselves, whether they are perceived as health-promoting or as questionable. Safety of CBD is confirmed by WHOAfter intensive research into the substance, the World Health Organization WHO has declared Cannabidiol safe to use. No adverse health effects or risks associated with the use of CBD could be identified during the studies carried out by the WHO itself. This means in plain language that you could not prove any side effects or the like. This makes CBD safer than most drugs that are available in the pharmacy over the counter. So who would give his child an ibuprofen in pain or aspirin, which should also be able to safely administer CBD, if the child has a condition that can be positively influenced by CBD. Is CBD suitable for children only as a remedy or as a nutritional supplement?The fact that CBD can help children suffering from epilepsy, for example, or other serious ailments has been proven by numerous studies and is now also relatively well-known through reports that have become public. However, many people may believe that they need to keep their CBD products away from their children. This is not the case, because CBD is also excellent for children for general health promotion. For example, if children are sleeping badly, or are suffering from anxiety, or are generally tormented by restlessness, cannabidiol can help them relax and sleep well. Even in children diagnosed with ADHD, CBD can be used effectively to prevent treatment with Ritalin. CBD can easily be integrated into a child's everyday life without the impression of medication. Many of the very natural products can be used to prepare drinks and food. Source: GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus.

Hemp protein for muscle growth - what are the benefits?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor 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: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.

What is Cannabis Drug (CBC)?

access_time24.October 2019personEditor 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 CBCIn 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.
