Ummm…. Did you say CBD did NOT work?

Ummm…. Did you say CBD did NOT work?  Well guess what?!  Maybe it didn’t work for you.  We believe you!  Our passion for health and wellness have helped so many but in all honesty some people just do not find relief.  Let’s explore a few reasons why you might have not seen success while using CBD.

CBD is an absolutely amazing oil but it does not perform miracles. Yes… Legal Hippie just said that CBD is not a miracle worker!  There are many factors that could play into rather or not you are seeing improvement while using CBD.  First things first, check your brand! CBD is not regulated.  This means that a product could say that they contain CBD but when lab tested they actually do not!  Shocking I know but this happens time and time again.  Until CBD becomes regulated you need to be able to see all third-party testing for your oil.  Any reputable company will always have lab reports.  Legal Hippie of course has reports!  While you are at it, check those ingredients.  To many ingredients, additives and even artificial flavoring can be found in CBD’s.  A bit counter productive if you ask me!

Next on the list… Check your dose!  Are you taking enough?  A good and easy guideline you could follow is

  • 2.5mg a day to increase appetite in cancer patients.
  • 2.5 – 20mg daily to alleviate chronic pain.
  • Up to 400mg a day for epilepsy.

Every single individual will need a different amount. It just isn’t as easy as saying between a certain weight take this amount.  This is a time that requires you to pay attention to your body and increase until you notice results.

Another reason people are not seeing results is they are impatient.  CBD takes times.  You HAVE to take regularly and consistently. Some see results after 3 to 4 days while other might not find relief for a couple of weeks out.  CBD is not here to numb away your fears, worries, and pains. It is fuel for your body and heals you from the inside.

Another common reason for people to not see results is GENETICS!  Yes, it even deals with genetics.  What causes CBD to work is how it works within and with your own body.   CBD works with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and some of us are born with more endocannabinoids than others.  If you are lacking endocannabinoids you will and are more capable of seeing an improvement due to your body getting exactly what it is lacking.  Studies are even showing that some people suffering from fibromyalgia could be suffering due to a lack of endocannabinoids.  Back to those lucky individuals that have an abundance of cannabinoids, there are around 20% of Americans that have a genetic mutation that increases the natural endocannabinoid level in the body. If you are one of the lucky ones to have this, you’ll feel less anxious than a normal person but on the flip side since you have extra cannabinoids already, CBD may prove ineffective.

Biology also plays a role.  If you are a female you are actually more sensitive to thc and even our favorite here at Legal Hippie CBD!  Men on the other hand tend to need higher doses of CBD due to their biology including the size of a man.  They are typically larger than women and will need bit more!

There are still so many factors that determine rather or not you will see relief while using CBD.  Your fitness level or physical health, psychological health, your tolerance, and the strains used along with the entourage effect.

Overall CBD derived from Hemp is making a come back and we at Legal Hippie are thrilled.  We see countless testimonies of people finding relief and being able to move forward in life. Which makes our hippie hearts so happy!

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!

CBD for your mermaid… Mermaid hair that is!

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 your tolerance… Reverse tolerance that is! CBD vs. Your Morning Coffee

coffe

I have been asked time and time again if CBD is addicting.  Hemp or marijuana have received a bad name over the years but truth be told it is NOT addicting.  Now with this being said you can in fact build a tolerance to the compound THC.  This means that the more you use it the more you will need in order to achieve the same affect.  Similar to your morning cup of coffee.  If you are like me I no longer drink just one.  I graze that coffee pot like a snack.  A cup here, a little warming fill up and than another. HA  CBD on the other hand is the opposite.  Hence the term, REVERSE TOLERANCE.  In fact you could start of needing 20 drops twice a day of CBD but as your system begins to be placed back into homeostasis you will actually need less!  CBD, which is naturally found in Hemp or Marijuana is also the compound that fights the high that occurs with the THC.  CBD is actually sobering!  So for a short installment to my Legal Hippie site this freezing cold Sunday afternoon you can now rest assured that you can take your CBD without concern!  It is indeed safer than your morning cup of joe you little coffee addicts.

If you would like to try a little reverse tolerance in your life….

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?

Post traumatic stress help!!! CBD to rescue!!!

nik-shuliahin-251237

Be prepared for this to the become super “sciency” but after all science is how we learn how it all works! Post traumatic Stress disorder can be absolutely debilitating.  It is a debilitating anxiety disorder that occurs after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event.  The most common form of PTSD you will here of is from our veterans.  This is often called shell shocked.  It is much more than “shocked” it is life changing!  Now it is not just our veterans but many people that have suffered abuse including sexual abuse, addictions, witnessing traumatic events, abused children, etc etc etc.   The most common side effects off PTSD are intrusive thoughts recalling the traumatic event, nightmares, flashbacks, efforts to avoid feelings and thoughts that either remind you of the traumatic event or that trigger similar feelings, feeling detached or unable to connect with loved ones, depression, hopelessness, feelings of guilt (from the false belief that you were responsible for the traumatic incident),  irritability or angry outbursts, hypervigilance (being overly aware of possible danger), hypersensitivity, including at least two of the following reactions: trouble sleeping, being angry, having difficulty concentrating, startling easily, having a physical reaction (rapid heart rate or breathing, increase in blood pressure), headache, disrupted sleep and insomnia.  After the entirety of this list you understand the degree of how debilitating and life changing this is.  Now, can CBD help? Yes! Absolutely Yes!!! Let me explain….  CBD is a non psychoactive compound to cannabis.  When ingested CBD oil can help with the following:

Decrease feelings of anxiety
Improve symptoms of depression
Reduce hypervigilance often experienced by PTSD sufferers
Improve sleep quality
Eliminate aggressive reactions
Improve personal interactions
Reduce Flashbacks
Relieve Headaches
Reduce Irritability
Help Relieve Eye Strain From Light Sensitivity
Eliminate Sudden Twitching While Sleeping
Calm Restless Sleeping Habits

Now how is this list and the treatment of PTSD using CBD related?  CBD treats the conditions of the list and the conditions of the list are some if not all associated with these conditions!  CBD has the ability to effect the endocannabinoid system.  The stimulation of the endocannabinoid receptor with CBD is responsible for the treatment of PTSD symptoms! Researchers found that people with PTSD have lower levels of anandamides.  Anandamides act as a messenger molecule and plays a role in pain, depression, appetite, memory, and fertility.

The interesting thing about anandamides is that they are also a naturally endogenous (internally occurring) cannabinoid found in the human brain and nervous system that plays a role in the feeling of an overall well-being.  The word “anandamide” means “the bliss chemical” because it is released while we are feeling great.  CBD increases anandamide levels in the brain! I could go on and on and explain for days how CBD can help PTSD.  But in a short installment to my legal hippie site you should definitely consider CBD over conventional prescriptions medications!

For an alternative natural treatment of PTSD consider trying CBD.  I personally use Legal Hippie CBD for my own personal anxiety disorder.  If you want to try for yourself click the link below.  If you want more anandamides click the link below! If you need morw bliss click the link below!

CBD me and see you in the morning!

kinga-cichewicz-402025

CBD me and see you in the morning is exactly what I said.  Huh…. once again another amazing benefit of CBD oils!  Everyone needs sleep!  If you are like me I can be a totally different person when lacking some sleep.  It’s essential to your well-being. It’s science! Research has shown that after people sleep, they tend to retain information and perform better on memory tasks. Our bodies also require long periods of sleep in order to restore and rejuvenate, to grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesize hormones.  Sleep can be and is a matter of life and death when it comes down to it!  Now how can taking CBD help you sleep?  Lets dig a bit deeper….

CBD or Cannabinoids has been shown to help insomnia and sleep disorders.  Believe it or not there are an estimated 70 million people who suffer from sleep disorders in the United States.  If you know anyone, you know someone if not yourself that struggles in the sleep department.  CBD might just be the ticket to a good nights sleep.  Now to slightly contradict myself for a little fun it is actually a myth that CBD oil is sedating.  It is actually the opposite!  If you take CBD in modest doses it is alerting just like drinking a cup of coffee!  CBD triggers the same part of your brain that caffeine triggers.  Now of course this sounds contradicting as I said but let me further explain.  CBD has a very positive influence on the central nervous system, including relaxation and mood.  CBD tends to calm anxiety which is many cases will help with the ability to sleep soundly! CBD also has the ability to regulate sleep cycles, helping to decrease activity in the brain and lead you to a restful, relaxed state of mind.

This is great news to the world of insomniacs!  If you are ready to try something new to help in the very essential sleep department consider CBD oil.  I personally use Legal Hippie CBD oil!
