What is CBD? How Can It Help Improve My Mental and Physical Health?

Over the last decade there have been significant discoveries concerning the cannabis plant and its medical uses.

Researchers have found over 100 compounds in Cannabis. One of them is called Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, which can provide powerful pain relief without the associated high of marijuana.

CBD can be extracted from both the cannabis plant and the hemp plant. If it is hemp derived it can be sold in states where medical marijuana is not legal.

The law requires that the hemp and final products not contain more than 0.3% THC. Currently there are 48 states with some form of legalization (CBD, medical marijuana or recreational marijuana).

Today, it is used to treat many different types of ailments from back pain to seizures and has improved the quality of life of many sick people across the country.

Below we cover the different forms of CBD available and how they can be beneficial for you!

Types of CBD On the Market:

How Does CBD Work?

Like its THC counterpart, CBD must attach itself to a cannabinoid receptor in the body in order to work.

There are two different cannabinoid receptors in the human body, CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are associated with many important processes like pain, memories, movement, mood and even thinking! While there are CB1 receptors in various parts of the body the majority of them are found in the brain.

When you use marijuana, the active ingredient THC works by attaching itself to the CB1 receptors.
CB2 receptors are associated with pain as well as inflammation.After much research, it was determined that CBD doesn't directly impact the receptors but causes the body to use its own naturally occurring cannabinoids more effectively.

Benefits of CBD On the Body

Now that we have discussed how CBD actually works, lets look at some of the ailments people have been treating with this new healthy alternative.

Anxiety: millions of Americans suffer from and deal with anxiety in their everyday lives. It can be overwhelming and in extreme cases can cause people to change the way they live. Some of the different types of anxiety disorders include PTSD, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, most of the medications used to treat anxiety like benzodiazepines can be extremely addictive and produce nasty side effects. CBD makes a great alternative because it is not physically addicting and does not produce a high.

While it is important to avoid THC if you suffer from anxiety or are prone to panic attacks, users have found CBD to alleviate sudden onset of symptoms.

Cancer: cannabis has been used to treat the negative effects of cancer treatment like nausea, loss of appetite, and insomnia for decades. However, CBD has been getting a lot of attention due to its lack of psychoactive properties and growing list of uses.
According to cancer.org, "scientists reported that THC and other cannabinoids such as CBD slow growth and/or cause death in certain types of cancer cells..."

Hopefully, now that the laws are starting to change regarding cannabis, more treatments will be discovered and used to help patients in need.

Epilepsy: CBD is being studied as a treatment for epilepsy because of its ability to prevent seizures. Research has also led scientists to believe that CBD can be effective in reducing a number of possible disorders resulting from the epilepsy, such as neuronal injury and neurodegeneration.

"Charlotte's Web" - One of the most famous cases of treating epileptic seizures with CBD came in 2010 in Colorado. Known as the girl who "changed medical marijuana laws across the country," Charlotte Figi was only five years old when she was first introduced to CBD. Diagnosed with a severe form of epilepsy called Dravet's Syndrome, Charlotte was suffering from over 300 seizures per week. Her parents decided to take a big risk and give Charlotte CBD tincture during one of her seizures. The CBD stopped it almost immediately. By 2014, four states including Florida, New Jersey, Colorado, and Utah had passed laws allowing cannabis-based tinctures to treat epileptic seizures.

CBD is a wonderful tool that can help you relax after a long day, relieve stress if you are feeling anxious, or simply keep your sanity during a lengthy stay at home.

Thinking of quitting smoking? Find out how making the switch to vaporizing cannabis could help!

Sick of smoking?

It's that time of the year, several weeks after January 1st when New Year's resolutions begin to soften. One of the most common resolutions by Americans is the desire to quit smoking. Despite all the knowledge about the dangers of cigarettes over the last few decades (and a steadily climbing death rate), millions of Americans are hooked on tobacco and want to quit.

There are dozens of sure-fire methods out there that claim will remove your desire to smoke and help you live a cleaner, healthier life but the truth is that many people struggle when forced tp go cold turkey and that often leads to relapse.

New studies show that using a crutch during the quit process can drastically increase your chances of successfully quitting smoking, and one that we have found works quite well is vaporizing cannabis!

Table full of different vaporizers Comprehensive Guide to Vaporizing

How to choose the right ROA (route of administration)

If you are seriously considering using cannabis then you should familiarize yourself with the process of vaporization, including all the devices that will best suit your needs as well as the steps to take to get started right away.

Today there are many different types of cannabis vaporizers on the market. In fact, there are dozens and with so many choices it can be overwhelming and confusing as to which is most appropriate for you..

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of vaping and why many people have chosen to stop combusting entirely!

Why is smoking pot harmful?

When marijuana is smoked (combusted), more than 100 toxins and compounds are released. Over time, these carcinogens can be harmful to your health and even cause cancer.

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH's) are the result of incomplete combustion and are prevalent in marijuana smoke.

Two of the most common ones are Benzene and Napthalene.

Chart of health benefits Smoking Vs. Vaporizing

How does vaporization help?

When using a vaporizer, combustion is avoided by heating the marijuana too much lower temperatures. Once the cannabis has been heated properly, cannabinoid rich vapor is released and can be inhaled directly from a vaporizer or collected in a bag first and then inhaled.

The recommended range is 180-220 degrees Celsius (356 F - 428 F), however, different temperatures will give you different effects (lower temperatures = more of a sativa/head high, higher temperatures = more of an indica/body high).

This process produces cannabinoids without most of the tar and unwanted by-products associated with smoking, which is why it has gained so much popularity over the last decade.

One of the most recognizable vaporizers on the market, the Volcano, has been helping medical patients worldwide since 2000!!

What type of vape should I choose?

Everyone has different needs and you must consider several things before you buy your first vape:

  • Where will I use it most?
  • At home or on the go?
  • Does it need to be discreet?
  • Will you have access to a power supply?
  • What is your budget?

If you do not plan on medicating outside of the house: A desktop vaporizer is the best choice because they are more powerful (not running on a battery pack) and offer more versatility, especially if you want to use it with glass or other types of attachments.

In general, desktop vaporizers have much more accurate temperature control systems, which can be very important when you are trying to vape at specific temperatures. The downside is that they must be plugged in all the time in order to work.

Keep in mind these devices can be very costly, with the Volcano (digital) currently retailing for $599.

Some cheaper options include the Vapexhale Evo, which retails for $319.99 and the Arizer Extreme Q for $169.99.

Desktop Vaporizer On A Table Vapeexhale Evo


If you plan on using it everywhere:

There are tons of portable vaporizers on the market, but they come at a price.

Because of the high/constant temperatures needed to efficiently vape cannabis, a large battery is needed to keep it running. This can limit the devices discreetness and effectiveness.

Portable vaporizers can also end up combusting marijuana quite easily due to cheap components and inaccurate temperature control systems.

The result is a market filled with lackluster choices, the majority of them made in China with unreliable parts that have been known to cause health issues themselves.

Fortunately, the company behind the Volcano, Storz-Bickel, makes two different portables that have been tested and approved for medical use of cannabis.

The Mighty and Crafty have been around since 2015, but are expensive at $349 and $279.

Two other popular portables on the market are the Arizer Solo 2($200) and the Pax 3($200).

Now that you have all this information, you can make an informed decision about the benefits of smoking vs. vaping cannabis and start living healthy today!

Infused Edibles Dominate Market In 2020

Check out our simple DIY guide

The popularity of edible cannabis continues to explode as legalization spreads across the country!

While smoking flower and dabbing concentrate oil are still the two most popular ways to consume marijuana today, the popularity of THC infused edibles is on the rise!

Due to the negative implications associated with smoking, many people have decided to eat their cannabis as a healthy alternative.

This has led to the emergence of a massive edible market where businesses hope to be able to vend their products in every state that allows recreational marijuana.

Currently, there are 12 states (plus Washington D.C.) with legal weed and more on the way!

In this article, you will learn how to consume edibles safely, while still receiving the medicinal benefits you are seeking.

Over the years, there have been numerous accounts of first time marijuana users eating edibles and absolutely destroying themselves because they did not know what they were doing.

Cannabis Infused Chocolate Praline Bites

When used properly, edibles can deliver the appropriate effect and be useful as a medication or for recreation. However, if you make a mistake and ingest a larger dose than you intend, you could end up being miserable.

Here are some of the most important things to consider before eating anything infused with cannabis:

Can you overdose on THC?

While there has never been a death associated with a marijuana overdose, the symptoms of THC overload can be quite uncomfortable and include nausea, profuse sweating, dizziness and paranoia.

According to Neil Young in his 2014 interview with Howard Stern, "Try black pepper balls if you get paranoid". A trick he claims will reverse the negative effects of too much pot.

Where do people go wrong?

One of the biggest reasons first time users end up consuming the wrong amount is because of the way edibles are packaged. A chocolate bar could be 10 doses, or 1, so it is important to read the packaging carefully!

Another mistake first time users make is deciding to eat more because they haven't felt the effects after 30-45 minutes.
Don't be this person!

It can take up to an hour before you even start feeling an edible, so be patient and give it time to work! Remember that you can always take more if you end up starting with too low of a dose!

What is a normal dose of THC?

Everybody is different and not everyones body processes THC the same way. For this reason, it is very important to start with a lose dose until you know your limits.

A Normal dose for THC edibles is 5-10mg.

In this range, you will experience the feeling of being stoned without any overwhelming negative side effects. Most of the states who have passed legalization laws limit individual edibles to 10mg in an effort to curb people from making themselves sick.

Once you have figured out your "sweet spot", you can devote your time to the fun part, eating and enjoying them!
