Thyroid Support with CBD! Yes you seen that correct!  Scientists have discovered that there are cannabinoid receptors located on cells on the thyroid gland.  Of course there needs to be a lot more research but as the entire Cannabis plant becomes more mainstream and available the research will be greatly advanced.  We at Legal Hippie CANNOT wait for the day.  As for now we are finding that the human body is basically made to absorb Cannabinoids.  Evidence is even showing that CBD and other cannabinoids can be beneficial for managing the symptoms commonly associated with thyroid disorders. Such as pain, depression, dry skin, inflammation and anxiety.  This is huge due to the fact that in the U.S. alone an estimated 20 million people have some type of thyroid disease, and up to 60 percent of those people are unaware of their condition. In particular, women are five to eight times more likely than men to experience thyroid issues.  Lets dig deeper into how CBD or Cannabinoids can help!

When learning about CBD you will hear time and time again about the endocrine system.  CBD plays directly with this and helps to place your body back into homeostasis.  This is very important to survival due to the fact that it is the self-regulating process by which biological systems tend to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival.  For instance…. Keeping your internal body temperature around 98 degrees when the outside environment could be around 105 plus in mid summer. The thyroid gland is a very important organ found within the endocrine system. So you can see the connection!  The 2 main thyroid hormones actually regulate your body’s temperature and more!  Including your metabolism and heart rate.

So how does CBD help?  People who are suffering with a thyroid disease or thyroid issues often experience uncomfortable symptoms like pain, depression, dry skin, inflammation, and nervousness/anxiety. Management of these symptoms are vital to those suffering. Many individuals are able to use CBD and other cannabinoids to find relief.  Research suggest that CBD and other cannabinoids can provide effective relief to common thyroid symptoms including the ones listed above.  Plus as it helps to balance your body and helps your endocrine system to work properly and in turn can aid in the thyroid working properly as well.  CBD’s potential benefits for helping treat thyroid disease consist of delivering anti-bacterial, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties. So in conclusion we are seeing that CBD does and can help with the symptoms associated with thyroid issues.  As we continue to move forward we hope to find more and more research of the treatment of thyroid conditions plus many many other ailments.  The research seems to be a bit unlimited when it comes to the Cannabis species.

If you want to try CBD your endocrine system will thankyou.  Also lets just going ahead and send those receptors on the thyroid a little bonus of cannabinoids as well.

Yes… Under your tongue

There are many different ways to use or even consume CBD.  From edibles to capsules to vaping, topically and my personal way of using, Sublingually.  Today for a Legal Hippie installment I just wanted to briefly go over the sublingual method.  When you hear the term sublingual it literally means under your tongue.  Taking CBD by first holding under your tongue is a great way to get the cannabinoids right into your body! Let dig a little bit deeper and explain how this is beneficial.photo-1525849573460-8b8cd66819a1.jpeg

Legal Hippie CBD, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid extracted from hemp plants. Within your body is your very own Cannabinoid system.  This is system is responsible for keeping your body in Homeostasis which is very important due to the fact that this is how be keep our body balanced!  Lets just say that when you consume Legal Hippie CBD your endocannabinoid system gets very excited and begins to scoop up all the cannabinoids that you just provided. Under your tongue is one of the best way to use CBD. By placing the drops under your tongue and holding for at least 30 seconds you allow the active ingredients of CBD oil to be directly absorbed through the mucous membrane in the mouth.  Yeah…. mucus membrane might sounds like a gross term but science is science.  If you haven’t noticed yet that Legal Hippie LOVES the science behind our oils than you soon will! There are many capillaries or otherwise known as tiny blood vessels under the tongue which transfer the CBD directly to the bloodstream. When absorbed under the tongue the CBD is able to bypasses the digestive system and processing of the liver.  By doing this the effects of CBD oil are not decreased by digestion. Plus it allows CBD to quickly enter the bloodstream and interact with that  endocannabinoid system. Which is the sole purpose of using this amazing oil!

So next time you reach for a bottle, Legal Hippie CBD tincture bottle that is, place the drops under your tongue, hold for at least 30 seconds and swallow.  Now if you are ready to ignite your very own endocannabinoid system click the link below.

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

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!

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!

Nixon and Cannabis sprinkled with a little racism equals Class 1 controlled substance for a plant

nixon_president_marijuana

You know sometimes it is absolutely insane if you know the history of our laws.  The laws we follow today have a bit of a strange beginning at times.  You see Nixon made Cannabis a Class I Drug.  I would naturally assume that it had something to do with how dangerous this “plant” is.  Well that is not it.  Basically Nixon might have been slightly racist! Lets did a bit deeper.

If you agree with the laws that make Cannabis illegal you can thank President Nixon, the DEA & US Prison Industry for Classifying Cannabis as a Schedule I Drug.  The year of 1970 Nixon placed cannabis as a Class 1 drug.  This placement was only meant to be temporary while he begin to have it studied. Class 1 is a classification for the most dangerous controlled substance. THE MOST DANGEROUS!  Not quite.  Cannabis has not always been illegal.  It has been around for centuries.  It’s been used to treat many ailments and most commonly used as an anti-inflammatory.  Chinese Emperor Fu Hsi once recommended marijuana as medicine. The Hebrews once wrote of it as a ‘holy anointing oil.’ The Egyptians used it as an anti-inflammatory agent; the Indians, an anesthetic. Of course after the effects of the cannabis plant was tested it was suggested in 1972 by the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse, that cannabis prohibition end, which would remove it from Schedule I. President Nixon knew what the evidence showed BUT he refused to remove it as a Class 1 controlled substance even though his very own appointed commission said otherwise.  Cannabis is still today in the same classification as heroine and cocaine.  Now if you are like me you are wondering why in the world if he knew that the evidence showed this plant to be beneficial why would he not release it for the public to utilize. Well the answer is…………… Nixon’s war on drugs targeted the hippies and the blacks.  So today in 2018 we are still following a law that literally makes a plant a Class 1 controlled substance. There you go, now you know.  While Marijuana is still today a class 1, CDB which comes from the Hemp plant is not.  The reason being is it contains less than .3% THC.  To order your LEGAL full spectrum cannabis oil and to move towards a bigger awareness in the right click the link below!  We are on our way to legalization and I personally cant wait for this day!
