What-is-Cannabichromene-1280x800

CBC… WHAT! Legal Hippie has more than just CBD.  The buzz word on the streets are all about CBD!  Well, what about cbc?  CBC is another cannabinoid that can be found in the cannabis plant.  Legal Hippie is a full spectrum oil and has shown CBC present in lab results.  What does this mean?  Let’s dig deeper!

Legal Hippie sciency talk is about to take off!  CBC like CBD is non psychoactive. Meaning, it will not get you high!  However it does do some amazing things for your body.  Poor little cbc binds poorly to your CB1 receptor in your brain.  But this is why it doesn’t get you high!  What it does do is attaches itself with other receptors in the body, such as the vanilloid receptor 1 (TRPV1) and transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1), both of which are linked to PAIN perception. So CBC can help with pain!  That’s not all!Researchers also think that it seems to work with other cannabinoids, a term known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect refers to how all the different cannabinoids work together in the human body.

In short CBC has promising effects to our endocannabinoid systems and our overall health.  Cannabichromene (cbc)….

  • A powerful cancer fighter
  • Block pain and inflammation associated with collagen-induced osteoarthritis
  • Has a positive effect on neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs), a cell essential to healthy brain function
  • Powerful acne fighter
  • Works in conjunction with both THC and CBD to deliver a trifecta of antidepressant properties.

So don’t forget about all the other wonderful cannabinoids!  Today we are just learning about our prized CBC.

5-hydroxytryptamine-1A….or for better terms Nausea Relief!  Yes, that is one big word and in full Legal Hippie honesty I am not 100% sure I am pronouncing this correctly in my head! Correctly pronounced or not CBD can help to alleviate Nausea. Lets Dig deeper!

CBD oil is a great treatment option for nausea.  As always this is about to get sciency but Legal Hippie loves the science behind cannabis.  It all comes down to a very special little compound known as 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A. I say little but when it comes down to nausea little is more like BIG!  There are many findings that suggest that CBD can and does activate this 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A.  Once this compound is activated it can help reduce the feelings of nausea and it also suppresses the vomiting reflex.

So next time you have a sour stomach try reaches for CBD and get those wonderful little BIG 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A activated!

Stick and Stones may break my bones BUT CBD can heal me!

Stick and Stones may break my bones BUT CBD can heal me!

Yes you heard that right!  CBD has been shown to strengthen and even to help heal broken bones and fractures.  So all you mommas and dads surrounded by those reckless crazy little munkins this summer keep this in mind!

Now lets dig a bit deeper! This is about get sciency but hey, CBD is practically its own science.  First, just so we all know how breaks and fractures heal, they heal through a process called callus formation, which creates cross bridges from osteoblast cell proliferation.  This whole process of bridge building per say involves stimulation of endocannabinoid receptors on bone cells.  In a study cannabis ligands improved the rate of bone healing. It was also determined the CBD significantly enhanced the mechanical properties and strength of the bone after 8 weeks.

Now to try to explain in a more layman’s term… Your bones also are affected by the endocannabinoid system which means your bones actually contain CBD receptors!!!  YES! You heard that correctly! Your bones are housing receptors made perfectly just to pick up on CBD.  Hence the term CBD receptor.  Just as it sounds!  CBD in return helps your endocannabinoid system to heal your bones faster and can even make them stronger.

No bones about… CBD has been shown to heal and make bones stronger!

My neurons are making their own marijuana… Guess What? So are yours!!!!

camille-orgel-551599-unsplash

My neurons are making their own marijuana… Guess What? So are yours!!!!  I would like to think that I could brag about my marijuana neurons but fact is your brain is creating this exact same compound.  Matter of fact marijuana can actually help you grow more neurons and in return you become smarter.  HUH…. much unlike the old dumb stoner jokes we have always heard isn’t it? Let me explain!

Marijuana can stimulate growth and even repair your brain cells! The compounds that your neurons are creating are their very own CANNABINOIDS! The cannabinoids are responsible for filtering what is coming and going into your brain.  If you are like me… I need some filtering. THANK YOU MARIJUANA NEURONS aka cannabinoids!  When your brain releases its own cannabinoids it has a very calming effect similar to what smoking marijuana does.  Marijuana in exchange actually mimics your own bodies response.  So in a game of…. Who got you high first, the plant or your brain, your brain is the winner!

Now why did I tell you all this? One reason is that is it awesome, the other is that studies have been shown that CBD or Cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant can treat stress due to neurogenesis.  Neurogenesis (birth of neurons) is the process by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. It plays a central role in neural development. Cannabis strains with high levels of CBD are typically known for relieving chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and a number of other conditions.  They have also been shown to reduce the stress of neurogenesis and aids in the production and the increase in neuron production and battle the effects of chronic unpredictable stress.

So there you have it! CBD once again can help your body do what needs to be done.  In this case, Neuron production! Sign me up!

Make Children’s suckers Illegal!

130610-food-dye-health-color-wheel

So this morning as I am drinking my cup of coffee I came across a news report stating that they had just finished a huge drug bust.  Well this “so called” drug bust was CBD laced candy!  GASP… followed by a hand over the mouth and silence.  Yeah… CBD laced! HAHA This is ridiculous.  The sheriff department even went as far to say that parents needed to be vigilant and watch their children to assure they did not consume these candies.  You know I would hate to think my child ingested this type of poison! Well in all honesty I will gladly hand over any CBD laced candy, oil, cream, etc. to my children.  In fact I promote it!  CBD or Cannabinoids are known for many medicinal properties. Below you will see a chart showing how amazing this plant is! Now be mindful that some of thHealth-Effects-of-Marijuana-Reducedese show that the THC is used to treat a particular ailment but we are not speaking of THC but the cannabinoids within the Hemp plant. CBD is non psychotic which means it WILL NOT make you high.  THC on the other hand WILL make you high and is considered illegal in most states today.  Now to back my statement that children’s suckers should be illegal let me explain.  Suckers and many other candies contain artificial food colorings.  Believe it or not a lot of the artificial food colorings that are allowed and cleared by the FDA are illegal in other countries.  The reason is because they are SOOOOOO bad for you.  Citrus Red 2, Red 3, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2 and Green 3, which include some of the most commonly used artificial food colorings have all been identified as being, or being contaminated with, potential cancer-causing chemical! This is according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest. And Blue 1, Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 are known to trigger reactions in those with allergies.  Artificial food color has been linked to brain tumors, bladder cancer, allergies, cancer of the adrenal glands and kidneys, thyroid disorders and even ADD and ADHD especially in children and more.  Now can anyone explain to me why in the twisted backwards thinking world is it considered safe to feed our children a cocktail of artificial food coloring and not a FREAKING PLANT?

What the What?

indica-vs-sativa-leaves-720x340

Ok most people have heard of Cannabis but may or may not have known that there are 3 different strains? The most common strains you will hear about are the sativas and the indicas.  Most people new to this whole CBD, Cannabis or Oil Boom as they call it will probably have no clue what in the world we are talking about.  So for a very quick installment and to educate you a little bit more, let me explain!

Besides the way the plant looks, the names behind the strains also explain how they affect your body.  The word “cannabis” is used to describe a genus of plant. And within that genus, there are three main species: Cannabis indica, Cannabis sativa, and Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis ruderalis is commonly known as hemp, and it’s very low in THC.  Hempworx CBD oils actually has their THC levels down to a .03%.  THC, as I have said before, is the product that makes you high.  To explain a little more the Sativa strains are more stimulating, while indicas tend to be more sedating.
The high from sativa strains is energizing and perfect for daytime use if you are into that. A feeling of well-being and ease is often associated with sativas, making them ideal for social situations. They are also said to promote deep conversation and enhance creativity.  While on the other hand Indica strains tend to have an opposite effect. They provide a body high that is well suited for nights when you just want to wind down and leave the stress of the day behind. Indicas are often used to relieve stress and aid with sleep.  Now most places in the United States still have marijuana as an illegal substance.  However, moving in the right direction, CBD oil which is derived from the Hemp plant is legal in all 50 states!  CBD or Hemp oil is a very strong anti-inflammatory!  CBD or hemp oil has a huge range of potential health benefits and uses, including reducing pain, soothing anxiety, fighting cancer, improving mood, eliminating depression, preventing inflammatory arthritis, protecting the immune system, balancing the metabolism, aiding sleep disorders, and healing the skin, among others. I mean there is so much this plant can do!

So there you have it!  This was a very basic run down of the Cannabis strains.  To order your very own very legal Legal Hippie oil click the link below!

CBD is Eliminating Junk Drawers

alex-loup-393847

CBD is Eliminating Junk Drawers!!! This might be the strangest title you have ever read…. but it has FOR REAL helped eliminate junk drawers in my home.  You see a little over a month ago I started taking Legal Hippie CBD oil.  As weeks pass I have found myself cleaning out drawer after drawer.  I am organizing areas I never thought possible! I am getting rid of clutter, becoming simpler and cleaner.  WHAT THE HECK!  My daughter, after about the 25th bag of junk (no exaggeration) said, “MOM, why are you constantly cleaning stuff out?”  I did not have an answer!  Not initially that is until it occurred to me.  I am focused!  I am able to attack a task! What is going on?  It must be the oil!

CBD oil is said to help with ADD and ADHD.  I have struggled my entire life to pay attention.  I would read paragraph after paragraph as a child all the while reminding myself to remember and to pay attention to what I read.  It’s been a struggle. My day dream game is strong! If that is a thing.  HA  So yes, CBD oil is helpful to those whom suffer with attention problems.  Let dig a bit deeper…….  Daily intake of hemp oil can control hyperactivity and impulsivity. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, better known as ADHD, is a controversial diagnosis marked by distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Adults are more likely to be diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, or ADD, which lacks this hyperactivity characteristic, but is similar in other ways to ADHD. More than one in 10 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, a figure that continues to grow!

There have been many studies to try to determine what exactly is the primary cause of ADD or ADHD symptoms. One main physiological irregularity of ADD/ADHD is the brain’s shortage of dopamine, a chemical neurotransmitter involved in cognitive processes like memory and attention. Common medications like Adderall and Ritalin stimulate dopamine in the brain which promote concentration, but come with so many side effects.  Cannabis on the other hand seems to increase dopamine in the brain WITHOUT all the nasty side effects.  The compounds found in cannabis, called cannabinoids, correct dopamine deficiency observed in ADD/ADHD patients. Even in its raw form, cannabis is able to provide the mental slowdown necessary for concentration in many patients. Boring tasks like cleaning out junk drawers become more manageable, and mood swings tend to level out. Now you can see why I am tackling the junk in my house!  It is the only variable in my life that has changed!

So if you find yourself having way to much junk in your life literally or metaphorically Legal Hippie CBD oil might just be what you need! CBD oil is great for treatment in children too!  If you are ready to clean out those junk drawers….

CBD HELP!!!! 2018 NO SMOKING ON THE WAY!!!!

steven-pahel-336432

It’s January 7 so if your New Years Resolution was to stop smoking and you are beginning to struggle CBD might just be what you need!!! You should stop smoking cigarettes and start smoking pot.  NO!!!! Totally kidding, you should not smoke pot but instead use CBD oil otherwise known as cannabinoil.  CBD is a substance found in Hemp that gives you all the wonderful medicinal help. A recent study came out showing that CBD cannabis oil can be an efficient aid in quitting smoking. The researchers at the University College London have published an article in the “Addictive Behaviors” journal which found that the non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis (by its scientific name “cannabidoil”, also known as CBD oil), could reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by smokers who wanted to quit. CBD has an impact of the memory portion of the brain.  You know the part that lights up when you might see someone else smoking.  That all to familiar twinge begins to come back and the craving seem almost unbearable.  One of the reasons why it can help you out is that it is a neuro-protectant that protects and repairs the brain from the damage that drug addiction may cause. In fact, it can help reduce neuro-degeneration by almost up to 48.8% and protect it from further damage.  So for a short Sunday evening installment of the pros of CBD you should consider adding it to you routine for health and to help aid in fighting addictions, including nicotine.

Don’t make me throw CBD biscuits in this office!

IMG_20171214_062905_530

To clarity, its a dog treat.  It is a vets office. Yes, they contain CBD.  I am talking about treats that contain CBD for your pets.  This past week I took in my so so stinking sweet Standard Poodle pup named Malone Gambino into the vets office for the dreaded vaccines. I allowed the 4 yr old to hold the leash. Malone is so good he even allows her to be the boss! I’m standing at the desk and see the BIGGEST German Sheppard I have ever laid eyes on.  My first thoughts were how beautiful this dog was. Second thought was how HUGE he was.  Literally the biggest one I might have ever seen. Third thought was….. OH SH*T.  Sorry for the asterisk language but as soon as I looked at that dog I noticed that dog just laid eyes on my poor little 3 month puppy and full sprint/lunge was on us!!!  I mean fast!  Lucky for me my husband had come home early from work and was able to stay home with the baby.  Otherwise my story would likely be a lot more severe.  Back to the originally Lunge… he pounced!  I grabbed the leash from my daughter so instinctively and started to go the other direction from her.  The dog grabbed my puppy twice as I turned my back a tried my hardest to be a barrier between my puppy and to place distance from MY CHILD!!!! I swear it felt like an eternity but I am sure it was a 3 second ordeal.  Between all the staff and the dogs owners they were able to get the dog off of us pretty quickly.  My poor pup 100% soaked himself in urine and is more than likely bruised but we all dodged a huge bullet.  Baby was home, My child unharmed, puppy with mere bruises and I had pee on my shoes from the puppy.  THANK GOD!!!!!!! But, if you don’t think that I wish I would have thought to give these people my card you are wrong.  They need help with their dog and THAT DOG NEEDS TO CHILL!!!!

How CBD Works Your Pet!

The cannabis plant contains a number of different chemicals, including CBD, phytocannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids. Humans and other mammals have specific cannabinoid receptor sites. These sites are primarily in the brain and central nervous system, and in peripheral organs, especially immune cells. They make up what’s called the endocannabinoid system.  Cannabis have anti-inflammatory effects, and can help with pain, tumors, seizures, muscle spasms, skin conditions, appetite stimulation, aggression, anxiety and neurological disorders.

So yes…. if you see me tossing treats to other dogs you know why!!!  If you and your dog need help click my link and check out Legal Hippie CBD oil for your pets and yourself!!!

CBD Me and see ya at the gym!

scott-webb-22537

CBD me and see ya at the gym!  I’m sure the entirety of this title seems to be contradictory in all ways!  Did I just say that CBD (Hemp oil) is good before a workout? Ummmmm… YES I DID!!!!  If you have ever played or dabbled in a little marijuana back in your days or heard the stories surrounding marijuana that statement is going to be confusing.   You see CBD is a non psychoactive meaning it will NOT make you high.  To explain this Hemp and Marijuana do actually come from the same plant.  Marijuana is made from the plant leaves and contains THC which is what causes the high so to speak.  THC is a psychoactive.  Hemp comes from the plant fiber, seed, and stalks.  Hemp contains less than .3% or has to legally contain less than .3%.  So in an easy explanation,  Marijuana makes you high and Hemp does not.

Cannabis does so many amazing things for your body.  From reducing inflammation to controlling diabetes.  For all you gym rats it’s a definite plus to your workout and healthy lifestyle to add CBD oil to your routine.  Cannabis is shown to raise your metabolism, aid in muscle recovery after a workout, reduce inflammation and can increase your endurance level but controlling an unnecessary anxiety during your life which in turn sneaks into your fitness life!

I personally use Legal Hippie CBD oil and swear by this product.  It is life changing to say the least!  #legalhippie
