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!

CBD Me and Get off this high!

sharon-christina-rorvik-233131

Did I just say CBD me and get off this high? Yes I did!  To explain further,  in my past installments per Legal Hippie I have broken down the Cannabis plant.  This plant contains so many components and treats so many different ailments.  It is an absolutely incredible plant.  Well did you know that CBD is second in comparison to the THC in cannabis.  Incredibly it’s like the plant just gave you a fix to the high.  THC is what makes you high while CBD is what fights the high!  Thank you Cannabis!  This is why certain strains containing THC will make you more disoriented or high than others.  It has everything to do with the THC per CBD ratio.  Just like a chocolate milk for instance.  The more chocolate you have the stronger the chocolate taste is.  On the flip side if it has a lower ratio of chocolate per milk the more it taste like white milk.  Way to cover all the bases my plant friend! HA!  Back to the plant itself…  The reason Cannabinoids or commonly known as CBD fights the high is due in part to the fact that it is an anti psychotic!  CBD is very helpful in fighting anxiety stoned or not stoned!  So the next time someone tries to tell you that Cannabis is good for anxiety remember that CBD is great for anxiety! THC… poor guy, this just isn’t always the case.  THC can actually cause paranoia and intensify anxiety! SO if you live in an area where the full Cannabis line is legal and you partake a tad to much consider reaching for Legal Hippie CBD!  If you are struggling with anxiety or restlessness also consider reaching for your Legal Hippie CBD! Everyone should consider CBD.  It is, simply put, a miraculous 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….

These Hot Flashes Though… CBD to the rescue!

thomas-hafeneth-244903

CBD for menapasue… I swear this stuff will forever amaze me.  Did you know that England’s Queen Victoria herself used to eat hash candies to ease menstrual cramps? Marijuana has been around for FOREVER!  Afterall it is literally a plant.  A PLANT!!!

Back to menopause. It is so funny to me how us women gripe and groan over our periods for years. Literally years!!! I myself have been complaing for some 26 years now.  Wow that is a long time!  Let me just add to this and say that once I no longer have to deal with the ever dreaded period I will continue to gripe and groan over not having one.   With this comes hot flashes, depression and anxiety, fatigue, and sleep problems which can last for months or even years pre- and post-menopause. Ummmmm no thanks! But if I am lucky enough to continue with life this is in my future. So can CBD be beneficial to menopause? Why Yes! Let’s dig a bit deeper.

As we may or may not know CBD has been shown to help with sleep and anxiety.  But Menapause includes more than just this.  It includes increased risk of breast cancer, bone loss, dry skin and hot flashes.  Lucky for you the compounds in CBD actively interact with the sex hormone estrogen, which is a key culprit behind menopause symptoms! This takes us right back to the endocannabinoid system! As I have explained in previous installments on my Legal Hippie site. This system is responsible for placing the body into homeostasis.  Homeostasis is very important to our bodies.  It is the balancing system. For example, it is what is responosble for keeping your body around 98 degrees even if it is 100 outside.  This is important! It is a checks and balance system that is necessairy to survival!  Your body being in Homeostasis is the key to the endocannabinoid system to help regulate things like body temperature, immune function, mood, sleep, pain, appetite and energy metabolism, and finally the Reproductive cycles.  Endocannabinoids are like the body’s own cannabis. Breastmilk even contains cannabinoids!  Just a little tid bit of fun facts for you. Compounds in the cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids) directly interact and engage with the endocannabinoid system. When it comes to women’s reproductive health, endocannabinoids and estrogen are right there in the same race!  When estrogen peaks, so do your levels of endocannabinoids. In fact, prior to menopause, women are most sensitive to psychoactive THC right before ovulation! So if you live where THC is legal… girls be careful when ovulating! HAHA This is when estrogen levels are at there highest.  Estrogen directly engages endocannabinoids. In fact, the enzyme that breaks down certain endocannabinoids (enzyme FAAH) is regulated by estrogen. As estrogen levels begin to drop, endocannabinoid levels change. So the best thing you could do for your menopausal body is to help it balance itself right back out.  I stand behind Legal Hippie CBD oil.  Its a full spectrum oil grown here in KY!

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!

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.

Antibiotics are Weakening… CBD is Strengthening. Lyme Disease Help!

thGYIPOPQG

Lyme disease (and chronic lyme disease) becoming one of the fastest spreading illnesses in the world, alternative medicines like CBD oil and silver are garnering more attention, especially since antibiotics are becoming increasingly less effective! Yes I said it and science backs it….  Antibiotics are becoming increasingly less effective. Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease characterized at first by a rash, headache, fever, and chills, and later by possible arthritis and neurological and cardiac disorders, caused by bacteria that are transmitted by ticks.  Did you notice the word used again, INFLAMMATORY!!! OVER AND OVER AGAIN.  Inflammation is the root of ALL disease.  How does CBD oil help? It is an anti-inflammatory. Now lets dig deeper!  The bacterial infection known as Lyme disease affects around 300,000 individuals in the U.S. each year. Studies have started to show that cannabis contains antibacterial properties and the actual cannabinoids may assist people who have Lyme disease in a way to manage their symptoms.

Drs. say that CBD could actually CURE Lyme disease. The leading cause of death complications from Lyme disease is not what you think.

“The leading cause of death in Lyme disease is suicide — the depression is that bad.” – Dr. Murakami

Concrete evidence has also indicated that cannabis is helpful for relieving symptoms that are linked to later stages in Lyme disease. The primary cannabinoids in cannabis which is THC and CBD are related with anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving properties. In particular, cannabinoids have been proven to improve pain which has been shown to be refractory when compared to the traditional treatments. In the way of interacting with the endocannabinoid system in the body, THC and CBD have demonstrated that they play a significant role in the way of suppressing the inflammatory responses and the regulation of the immune system.  Sadly in the state of Kentucky, THC is still considered illegal.  However, CBD is not.  Hempworx CBD oil is well below the legal limit of THC. The legal limit is .3%. Legal Hippie CBD is a FULL spectrum oil that continually test THC level at .03% so it is well below the legal limit.

To Follow up with CBD and Lyme…. Cannabis is effective at killing bacteria, viruses, and fungus. All 5 major cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN, CBG, and CBC) has been shown to kill MRSA, known as the “flesh eating virus.” Less studied cannabinoids such as 8-hydroxycannabinol have potent antibacterial properties, and single extracts may provide new targets to kill the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.
Cannabis may also be effective at treating the later stage symptoms of Lyme disease. Cannabis can help reduce pain, spams, headaches and nausea. Dr. Sanjay Gupta stated that cannabis is one of the safest and effective treatments for peripheral neuropathy, a crippling symptom most Lymies (patients with Lyme disease) suffer from. Many Lymies take opiate pain medication to deal with their pain, which can be ineffective, addictive, and can even end in overdose. Every 19 minutes a patient dies in the United States from prescription drug overdose.

Try CBD oil… what do you have to loose at this point? I believe in the benefits of this oil and will continue to promote and study for you all.

CBD Love From the Heart… High Blood Pressure Help!

nasa-90395

High Blood Pressure is something I hear of often.  One in Three adults today have high blood pressure. Time and Time again my family complains of high blood pressure.  It almost seems to be an epidemic the older I get.  I hear it over and over and over.  This is definitely something that should not be taken lightly.  Over time high blood pressure can cause many health issues including aneurysms, damaged and narrowed arteries, damage to kidneys, heart disease, heart failure, stroke, dementia, eye damage, sexual dysfunction, etc etc etc.  I mean the list is virtually endless.  There are a number of factors, including poor diet, stress, physical inactivity, alcohol, and tobacco use which increase the risk of developing hypertension.   So can CBD help with high blood pressure.  Once again…. Science says Yes!  If you haven’t noticed there are a lot of YES’ attached to this oil.

Here is how……..  According to the abstract from the, “Journal of Clinical Investigation”  Preclinical studies show CBD has numerous cardiovascular benefits, including a reduced blood pressure (BP) response to stress.  After testing male adults data showed that a single dose of CBD reduces resting blood pressure and the blood pressure response to stress, particularly cold stress, and especially in the post-test periods. This may reflect the anxiolytic and analgesic effects of CBD, as well as any potential direct cardiovascular effects.  Evidence also suggest that CBD oil may be beneficial in dealing with some of the cardiovascular ailments such as hypertension. The studies show how CBD is a vasodilator which means it allows a healthy flow of blood in the vessels to normalize blood pressure.  (Anti-Inflammatory) CBD provides neuroprotective effects that protect the heart against any cardiovascular conditions and even stroke. The studies have also shown how CBD can create normal heart rhythm after an ischemic attack and an improved heart performance immediately after a heart attack.  INFLAMMATION… once again is a huge cause.  ALSO STRESS!!!! Time and Time again stress and inflammation continue to be the root of a lot of  ailments in our bodies.

Consider treating your blood pressure with CBD oil.  Its a natural way of treating and regulating your body!!!  To order your FULL SPECTRUM CBD oil click the link below!
