CBC… WHAT! Legal Hippie has more than just CBD.

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.

hair.jpg

As you might have guessed I am about to tell you CBD or Hemp oil is beneficial to hair growth.  So here goes… CBD IS GREAT FOR HAIR GROWTH!  If you are like me I am struggling with hair growth due to chemicals.  I might have had a few to many color removers and bleaches over the last year or so.  Ok… I, for sure, had to many!  So I have been introducing CBD into my hair routine.  I NEED my healthy hair back.  CBD is helping!  Not only this CBD has been shown to help with people suffering from alopecia also.  Let me explain!

CBD is an excellent sourse of vitamin E. Vitamin E has an amazing softening effect for your hair.  CBD is also a very good natural miosterizer.  When applied to your hair and scalp it boost the health of your scalp and increases circulation which in return decreases hair loss.  Since CBD oil also promotes a better blood flow to your scalp it helps in quicker expansion of the hair follicles.  Hence… reduced hair loss!

CBD is also a great source of omega fatty acids.  The three most prominent ones are the omega-3, omega-6 and the omega-9.  The fatty acids found in Hemp oil or CBD have been shown to improve the quality of the tissue on the scalp.  In return it increases hair growth!

Last but not least it helps in adding the necessary protiens back into your hair.  It fortifides the strands by proliferating the protein within the hair.

This doesn’t just apply to women and that mermaid hair but it also applies to men who are wanting to thicken the hair on their heads or their faces.  YES! IT DOES HELP WITH GROWING THAT PRIZED BEARD!

So if you are in the market for some stellar mermaid hair, manly head of hair, or even a super manly mans beard…..

CBD and Fertility Help!

alexandra-gorn-331551-unsplash

CBD and fertility help?!!? Yep!  Studies are showing that CBD can indeed help with fertility.  Now when it comes to fertility issues most fingers immediately are pointed at the female but believe it or not it is pretty even in the fertility area. Roughly 35% of fertility issues are within the male, 35% within the female, 20% are within both the make and female partners and the remaining 10% can remain unknown.  Now that we have cleared this up let’s move forward with how CBD might be able to help with fertility.  Let’s dig a little deeper!

Of course let’s start with bringing up that all so wonderful endocannabinoid system!  This endocannabinoid system is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.  Sounds super sciencey but this system is responsible for pretty much YOUR ENTIRE WELL BEING!  The endocannabinoid system can also play a important role in procreation.  The human brain is wired to accept cannabinoids as a signaling mechanism for sex hormone production.  Now to take this further the endocannabinoids can also help men’s… ummm you know…. (throat clear) Ha but it can help cells synthesize endocannabinoids, which in turn help create the right conditions to produce sperm.  This balance is a very necessary key to sperm livelihood so to speak and even sperm mobility.  Now don’t get excited you pot smokers…. on the other hand. THC has been shown to a decrease the number of sperm.  It is all about balance people!  Homeostasis even! Sperm produced without endocannabinoid signaling has low mobility and less probability of fertilization once at the egg.   So CBD looks like it could be a nice little addition to fertility.  Of course as the oil is gaining popularity more and more studies will be completed. But for now… My favorite little oil, CBD, is at the adorable infant stage.

BREAKING NEWS!!!! 77% of Moms are giving their infants Cannabinoids!

liv-bruce-361672

77% of new moms are giving their infants cannabinoids?!?!  YES!  Believe it or not this is the truest and most absurd statement you might read today.  Now let me explain!

Cannabinoids, like those found in marijuana, occur naturally in human breast milk! As of 2017 it was estimated that around 77% of new mothers were choosing to breastfeed. So as breastfeeding begins to become the norm in our society, which it should, the release of cannabinoids are flowing freely to our babies!

The reason that human breast milk contains cannabinoids is due to the fact that our bodies are actually hard-wired to receive it and it vital to infant development.  The human body is a very complex system of proteins known as cannabinoid receptors that are specifically designed to process cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the primary active components of marijuana.  As it turns out and perfectly designed, human breast milk naturally contains many of the same cannabinoids found in marijuana, which are actually EXTREMELY vital for proper human development.  I know, in a round about way, told you this twice but IT IS EXTREMELY VITAL TO DEVELOPMENT.  Ok…. hopefully I have made my point!  The cannabinoid compounds act as neuromodulators that stimulate the suckling process by activating oral-motor musculature, which helps teach children to eat. (similar to adults getting the “munchies”) These nutritive cannabinoids within the milk also play a critical role in protecting cells against disease, boosting immune function, protecting the brain and nervous system, and relieving pain and disease-causing inflammation, among other things.

So for a quick installment to your education on Cannabinoids this Saturday you now can see why mothers everywhere are freely providing cannabinoids to their children.  You also have just one more proof as to why we are meant to consume CBD and how we are all connected to this amazing frequency filled world.

If you want some good ol cannabinoids to support your own well-being but not to fond on the idea of finding a breastfeeding mother to share the gold click the link below to order your very own CBD! HA!

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?

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 and That Coveted Youthful Glow

caju-gomes-388937

Ok to take a break from the health benefits of CBD lets looks at the vanity behind using CBD.  Totally kidding… kind of. HA I mean CBD is in fact a wonderful Anti Aging product but it still has everything to do with health.  Let’s dig a bit deeper!

You see CBD is what you would call a immune modulator.  An immune modulator is a component that either increases or decreases the effectiveness of your immune functions and cells. There are many reasons why this process is used, and there are many benefits to using immune modulation instead of antibiotics or other drugs. In dealing with CBD oils as a modulator it is a powerful anti aging supplement that promotes well being to your entire body.  Meaning THE ENTIRE BODY!!! Including and not exclusive to your largest organ called your skin!  To explain even further Modulation means having an aggressive immune system, available for pathogens and foreign cells to be destroyed (i.e. cancer) but also turning off and not hyper-reacting to commonly occurring foods, allergies, environmental organisms and chemicals. Immune modulation is a balance between removing toxins and not over reacting. So the less toxins your body has the better your skin will be!  Anti aging is not just skin though.  Anti aging includes brain health, bone and joint health, and much more.  Yes we all want to be beautiful forever but I’ll be happy to exchange some wrinkles for some time or a lot of time with grandkids one day!  I’ll be that grandma! But back to vanity it still helps in the reduction of wrinkles!  And to dig even further let me explain…

CBD is a major component of the hemp oil. This herbal extract is loaded with several other nutrients. Of them, vitamin C and E are the ones which play a major role in skin care.  Both of these vitamins are strong anti-oxidants, that protect the organ internally from harmful effects of free radicals, as well as externally from the sunlight. UV rays and free radical damage accelerate the aging process, and so, when protected from these factors, the natural liability of the skin is secured. Among the CBD oil benefits for skin stands the most important one- vitamin A. Vitamin A is crucial in the growth and differentiation of skin cells. It also helps inhibit excess oil production by the skin glands. Side note, when you control the excess oil production acne is controlled but that topic is for a future blog. So stay tuned!  Hemp oil also contains vitamin D, and this together with vitamin A helps in preventing the skin from going dry and flaky.  CBD oil is also vital to balancing your endocrine system.  The endocannabinoid system is pretty essential for regulation of the skin aging process. As we know or might not know yet, cannabinoids act on the CB-receptors, hence, the herb may be able to slow down the skin aging course by controlling these receptors.  So there you have it!  I mean how many more things can a simple plant do??!!??  When choosing a CBD oil for skincare purposes remember to opt for a good brand.  I myself use Legal Hippie CBD oil!  A few notes to stand by are
1.  They should contain zero THC
2.  Should Score 80 percent or higher in terms of purity                                                       3.  Should contain organic ingredients
4.  Should have 100 percent USA oil (Legal Hippie is KY Grown)
5.  Non-GMO

Sometimes I choose to just rub my face with pure oil!   To order your powerhouse of anti aging Legal Hippie CBD click the link below!

A Keto Diet with a dash of CBD

brooke-lark-229136

A new “trend” in the dieting world is the Keto diet.  The keto diet is one that is based around placing your body into ketosis.  You achieve this by strictly limiting your carb intake and eating healthy fats and proteins with leafy vegetables and berries for example.  Ketosis is when the body begins to burn your own fat for fuel.  When you consume carbs your body uses them for fuel instead of your stored fat and converts them into glucose.  But let me first say, to me, it is not a trend as some would say but a lifestyle change.  Sugar is terrible for the body and even promotes the growth of cancer cells and creates a tidal wave of other health conditions.  Limiting your sugar intake also benefits your body by reducing inflammation.  I stand behind the fact that sugar is an evil to our bodies.  If you need sweets you can get it from all the wonderful fruits that God created.

A second “trend” in holistic health care is CBD oil.  I personally stand behind Hempworx CBD oil.  I use it twice a day by applying 5 drops under the tongue morning and night.  CBD oil is made from strains of cannabis that contain low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), THC is what makes marijuana psychoactive.  Meaning the THC compound is what makes you high.  CBD oil is high in cannabinoids, a group of phytochemicals found in the cannabis plants. Cannabis has been used all over the world to treat various illnesses and diseases.  CBD is also an amazing anti-inflammatory!  If you didn’t know inflammation is the root cause all pretty much any disease out there!

Now lets combine these 2 “trends” and you have a super cyclone of health benefits! Including a super cyclone of anti-inflammatories!  Wow! The combination of diet and natural pain relief is also transformative.  It’s like peas and carrots! Only you don’t need a lot of either one of those vegetables on the keto diet. HA

Here is a list of a few things that both CBD and a keto diet help!

  1. Epilepsy
  2. Depression and Anxiety
  3. Inflammation
  4. Schizophrenia
  5. PTSD
  6. Alcoholism
  7. Addiction
  8. ADHD and more!!!

From personal experience being in a state of ketosis has given me so much drive during my workouts.  My mind is clearer and my energy levels are actually higher!  It amazes me.  I am currently working on getting my own body back into ketosis.  I have slid out of ketosis more times than I care to remember recently and WOW I can feel it.  I am struggle bus with my body and mind trying to power through the workouts. Both CBD and the Ketogenic Diet help with your bodies inflammation (you will hear this a lot, sorry not sorry) which causes pain and helps with mental clarity by reducing the bodies inflammation and aids in clearing your mind from worries. Who in their right mind would not want this!  SIGN ME UP!

Now that I am mixing the 2…  OH MY GOSH I am feeling extra good!  I mean the 2 together are becoming my saving grace for anxiety, joint pain, sleeplessness, and muscle building during my workout!  CBD AND KETO… YES YES FREAKING YES!!!!  Let me add to this and say Hemp oil is a powerhouse of nutrition when it comes to healthy fats. And it is better than flaxseed oil, which in itself is a reputed source of omega – 3. Hempseed oil is more than 40 % oils , and 80 % of these are essential fatty acids ( EFA ). Can I say healthy fats!!!  Yes I can!

Cannabis and Alzheimer’s

lotte-meijer-142578

If you know anyone in life you will at some point hear the medical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.  My own personal family has been riddled with this diagnosis.  It is so incredibly hard to see someone you once knew change and have no idea who you are. Alzheimer’s is a disease that is a irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks.  Things like normal daily task such as brushing your teeth become unfamiliar.  In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s.

At current times, in the state of Kentucky, THC is still considered illegal.  When it becomes legal, THC in Marijuana can be very useful in helping and even controlling the progression of this disease.  THC is shown to begin to remove the plague buildup in the brain.  Beta amyloid is a toxic protein that builds up in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, forming what is called plaque.  Scientist believe that the plaque contributes to the debilitating symptoms of Alzheimer’s.  Now until THC is legalized, where we reside, CBD can be helpful also! You see Cannabinoids reduce in the inflammation in the cells.  It is a very powerful anti-inflammatory.  When beta amyloid accumulates in neurons, the brain has an inflammatory response. This inflammation contributes to the disease’s progression and remains the main cause of Alzheimer’s-related damage. The study published in Nature: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, also showed that cannabis is known for treating many types of inflammation including the inflammation in the brain and aids in preventing nerve cell death.

AMAZINGLY there was a team from Neuroscience Research Australia that indeed published the first evidence suggesting that CBD can actually reverse some of the cognitive impairments caused by the Alzheimer’s disease, and this may be due to CBD’s ability in promoting the growth of new brain cells, or neurogenesis. In case you didn’t know Neurogenesis is the process by which new nerve cells are generated .  This is huge in the Cannabis and science world! Heck it’s huge in my world!

So if you know someone that you love that is showing early signs Hempworx CBD is a full spectrum oil that can be extremely beneficial.  It contains over 120 different strains of cannabinoids.  Not only will it or can it aid in slowing the progression of this terrible disease it can also treat some of the symptoms.  Lack of appetite, depression and aggression for instance can all be treated with CBD.
