CBD Fights Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria!

images.jpeg

That’s right CBD Fights Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria! Incredible isn’t it?  I can read and study and read and study and continue to be amazed at what something as simple as a cannabinoid from a plant can do.  The amazing part of this is that as we continue to be able to utilize the Cannabis species we will continue to be able to study and learn more and more about this little power house plant and all the amazing benefits that it can offer.  Now back to the previous statement, CBD is showing promising hope that it can also help fight many different drug resistant bacterias.  Let’s dig a bit deeper!

We at Legal Hippie love the science around this plant and are incredibly thankful that we are not the only ones.  Researchers have now discovered that cannabinoids (including CBD) have a very unusual ability to destroy bacteria (especially drug-resistant strains). Of course as with the onset of all the ability to use our God given plant again researchers are needing to do a bit more research and need to study this deeper.  Back in 2011 there was a study that found that CBD can even slow the progression of tuberculosis in rats. This is absolutely amazing but there is science behind this!  Legal Hippie science ignite!  The reason CBD seemed to have this ability is due in part to the ability of CBD to inhibit T-cell proliferation rather than having an antibacterial property. Immune function is helped by two kinds of white blood cells. The “B cells” (so-called because they develop in bone marrow) produce antibodies. The “T cells” (so-called because they develop in a small organ called the thymus gland) are responsible for a variety of other immune responses. T cells are extremely sensitive to TCR binding while protecting against the inappropriate activation of potentially dangerous effector cells. In a legal hippie what the what statement, CBD seems to have a way for destroying bad bacteria and is also a weapon against the antibiotic resistant superbugs that we are all becoming to fear today.

Since I am Legal Hippied up my anxiety is under control and this is not an extreme fear of mine but knowledge is power.  I might as well treat my anxiety all while fighting those little superbug bacterias. HA!

Hemp or Cannabis CBD oil? What are they and are they the same?

photo-1518292806887-e50c8ca5a844.jpeg

The buzz of CBD and the uprising of holistic health uses are putting a lot of questions into the CBD world.  So quickly lets discuss… WHICH IS BETTER?!? Hemp or Cannabis CBD oil?

The answer is…. One is not better than other! They are different.  You see Hemp oil or CBD derived from the Hemp plant is currently legal in all 50 States.  Hemp oil has a high CBD and a low THC ratio.  Laws state that the THC level has to be below .3%.  CBD is a wonder cannabinoid and the question you might ask is what does this oil NOT do.  It’s truely amazing!

Flip side, Cannabis oil has a high THC ratio.  Typically between 5 to 10% THC.  Currently THC is only legal in certain states.  So if you live in an area that THC is still considered illegal you will not be able to purchase Cannabis oil “legally”.  Cannabis oil, still does have the powerful cannabinoids but also the THC.  Wonderful little THC will however make you high.  Regardless of the head change, it can also be used for many things and has great medicinal benefits.  However some conditions such as anxiety can worsen after using THC.

So I hope this clears up the cloud of smoke surrounded Hemp oil vs. Cannabis oil! If you would like to purchase some legal, below .3% THC, hemp cannabinoids or CBD click the link below!

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.

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….

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.

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!

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!

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!
