CBD- One Size does NOT Fit All!

CBD- One Size does NOT Fit All!

The CBD industry is quickly becoming the most Alternatively Healthy TREAD in our country since Jack LaLanne and Juicing… Economically. the CBD Industry is soaring daily. The benefits have been reported off the charts and life-changing for so many, it’s wonderful to see & know. The testimonials are amazing, from extreme inflammation reduction to pain relief, lower blood pressure, relief of Opiate and pharmaceutical addiction, even reports of people coming off Thyroid Medication and other harsh medications with side-effects that could and sometimes do, kill us. CBD – Cannabinoidoils are now available in all 50 states because it’s a non-narcotic, so it’s legal.  So far it does not seem to show up in drug testing with its .03%THC…However, HempingtonPost is doing more research on this question, ‘Can straight CBD with 0.03 pass a drug test? DO we need to be worried about this?

Every BODY is different – not one size fits all

As I’m experiencing different CBD/Hemp Oil Product lines I can clearly say, our bodies seem to have all the same functional parts yet they appear to be very different in how they function. Not one size fits all and that’s true with most things in life! What may be great for me, may not be so great for You.

I say, commit to nothing until you’ve tried it out for at least 30 days or less if you don’t like how it makes you feel. I have gone from lethargic to anxious with various brands of CBD – I’m a tester, I settle for nothing. My body deserves only the best and I believe yours does too – It’s not easy finding the best CBD and we are worth the time invested in our self.

I have tried many CBD lines as I mentioned AND I love Randy’s Remedy. The taste, and for sure the feeling I get when I take the drops. Immediately I’m feeling clear, calm & creative, my three favorite ways to feel and my sleep is solid as a rock… and this is where my body feels optimal!

I encourage you if you are looking for a NON-MLM CBD that makes you feel clear & fabulous… with 03% THC, Randy’s is great and if you want to share it – they do have an affiliate program!

10 Cannabinoids You Didn’t Know About

10 Cannabinoids You Didn’t Know About

10 Cannabinoids You Didn’t Know About

Cannabinoids, huh?

Yep, we’ve definitely all heard of the two main terms related to our favorite herb – THC and CBD…

Acting as the two main “ingredients” in marijuana, they’re scientifically called cannabinoids.

But, little do most know, there are DOZENS, if not hundreds, of different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.

Today, we’re going to look at 10.

THC

cannabinoids - plant

Often known as marijuana’s “flagship” cannabinoid, THC is the poster boy of weed, and is scientifically named Delta(9)-Tetrahydrocannabinol.

As one of the “main” active ingredients in weed, this is what turns you from sober to stoned!.

Not only does it get you high, but it has medicinal values to it as well!s.

It can treat:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Neuropathy
  • PTSD
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Glaucoma
  • AIDS/HIV

THC is obviously quite diverse in its abilities to treat diseases, and is held in high esteem among cannabis lovers.

CBD

cannabinoids - cbd

As you can expect, after THC, there is CBD.

Known as Cannabidiol, this is the cannabinoid most associated with medicinal properties.

With it’s great healing capabilities, here are some of the illnesses or issues that it can help alleviate:

  • Pain relief and inflammation
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Anticancer
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anti-tumor
  • Anti-anxiety

There are even more benefits to CBD than what’s listed.

This video below will tell you everything you need to know about CBD.

CBC

cannabinoids - cbc

Unbeknownst to most, there are more than two ingredients inside of marijuana.

One of the more recent discoveries is a cannabinoid called Cannabichromene – CBC for short.

Although the average pot smoker is ignorant to the fact that this exists, CBC is the third most common cannabinoid in weed, and can even rival the amount of CBD content in certain strains!

CBC does NOT get you “high”…

The receptors that it binds to are linked to pain perception – the Vanilloid Receptor 1 (TRPV) and the Transient Receptor Ankyring 1 (TRPA1).

CBC has some of its own unique medical properties.

They include:

  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Antidepressant
  • Encourages new brain cell growth (neurogenesis)
  • Anti-inflammatory

There was a study done that says it even helps digestive issues associated with diarrhea and constipation.

While these benefits can be found within the cannabinoid CBC, they work even better in tandem with THC.

This effect is known as the entourage effect.

Essentially, isolating CBC and creating a product of just pure CBC would NOT be as effective without its other cannabinoid friends..

CBN

cannabinoids - cbn

CBN, or Cannabinol, can be found as a metabolite of THC.

Due to the oxidation of the plant’s chemicals, this means that it’s a byproduct of THC through the aging process..

Among having similar benefits that the other cannabinoids have, its most notable characteristic is that it promotes bone growth.

In most cannabis plants, THC can go up to around 30%.

In comparison, CBN RARELY exceeds 1%!

As for a more mainstream application of this cannabinoid, it would be best suited for its sleep aid properties.

When you’re feeling tired from smoking cannabis, it’s likely due to cannabinol.

CBG

cannabinoids - cbg

CBG, or Cannabigerol, is known to treat digestive issues, glaucoma, cancer, skin conditions, and acts as both an antiseptic and a neuroprotective.

As a precursor to THC, CBG converts into THC as marijuana matures over time.

Because of this, there is often a lower amount in most strains. CBG can usually be found in amounts up to 1% of the plant!

But without CBG, we wouldn’t have the weed we know and love today. It is the “mother cannabinoid” and we have it to thank for producing our desired THC and CBD molecules.

However, CBG has properties that can be utilized for medical purposes so growers and researchers are working on finding ways to increase the amount found in plants.

Since it’s a precursor, some breeders are experimenting with selective genetics and extraction of CBG in the earlier stages of cannabis growth.

THCv

cannabinoids - thcv

If you can pronounce this properly on your first try, you deserve an award.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin is a chemical structure that is very similar to that of THC, and will help potentiate the effects of it.

Similar to THC, THCv has some great benefits attached to it.

THCv is an anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, and more uniquely, it can even promote weight loss!

In this study, it shows that THCv has potential for reducing body fat and increasing energy levels.

Additionally, a study by GW pharmaceuticals showed promising evidence for THCv treating Type 2 diabetes.

It seems like the cannabis plant is just a gift that keeps on giving!

CBDv

cannabinoids - cbdv

CBDv, or Cannabidivarin, is to CBD what THCv is to THC.

Mostly found in indicas, this cannabinoid has powerful anti-convulsant properties and is shown to suppress the expression of genes associated with epilepsy!

GW pharmaceuticals actually began a Phase II for clinical studies of cannabidivarin in epilepsy in 2015.

They’re planning for CBDv to become “the next generation of standard epilepsy medication”.

Although it is a very confident statement, the future is looking bright for cannabinoids becoming legitimate medicines for a huge list of diseases and disorders.

Delta(8) – THC

cannabinoids - delta

Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is what we refer to as THC normally but, did you know there is a Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol as well?!

Although it is quite similar to Delta-9-THC, its potency is nowhere near as strong.

They do, however, have similar effects which include:

  • Antiemetic,
  • Appetite-stimulating
  • Anti-nausea
  • Anticancer
  • Antitumoral

The U.S. National Cancer Institute conducted research to confirm the benefits Delta-8-THC.

Even though these were studies conducted by the NCI, which is funded by the government, we’ve still seen these chemicals demonized by the same government and not approved by the FDA…

THCa

cannabinoids - thca

The last two cannabinoids (that you didn’t know about) are to be found in the plant substance before they’re decarboxylated.

This means that you don’t receive their unique benefits if you heat them up.

But what exactly are these benefits?

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antioxidant
  • Improves gastrointestinal functions
  • Neuroprotective
  • Antiemetic
  • Insecticide

The insecticide capabilities in THCa may prove to be useful by adding raw cannabis oil to lotions and creams for topical use.

These benefits present a good reason as to why individuals may consider consuming raw cannabis!

Some might even say… superfood!

CBDa

cannabinoids - cbda

As with THCa, CBDa’s benefits can only be redeemed if you eat them raw.

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antioxidant
  • Painkiller
  • Anti-proliferative

Anti-proliferatives help slow the spread of malignant cells in the body.

So combined with the other anti-cancer properties of the other cannabinoids we’ve mentioned, the cannabis plant in raw form could be a powerful cancer-fighting substance.

Conclusion about Cannabinoids:

Marijuana plays hosts to plenty of “ingredients” that can help with several different medical issues.

Researchers and growers are working desperately to extract certain cannabinoids to help with specific problems, which will eventually become a huge help in the medical field.

But for now, all we can do is wait until medical marijuana is a widespread and mainstream prescription!

CBD and Our Endocrine System

CBD and Our Endocrine System

Lately, many people have shared with me how completely exhausted they are for no reason.  Many have shared that their doctors say. their endocrine system is out of balance, not working properly and even shut down.  This is very concerning since I know our endocannabinoid system and our endocrine system are directly connected.  The challenge has been, over the past 80 years, not many people have been ingesting cannabis to feed their endocannabinoid system which balances the homeostasis of the endocrine system.  I’m no expert in this field, however, I have learned so much about our internal systems over the past few years in the hemp world that’s I’m excited to continue sharing this information with you.

Becuase we have experts in this area, I am turning to Linda & Tyler Struse to give us even greater detail on this life-enhancing and life-saving discovery!  take it all in – Darlene Mea, Producer, HempingtonPost

The Role of the Endocannabinoid System in Restoring the Endocrine System.

written by Tyler Strouse of RandysClub.org

Over the last few years, cannabis and the endocannabinoid system have emerged as a topic of interest among patients and those within the scientific community.

The endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS), named after the cannabis plant that led to its discovery, is one of the most important physiological system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors, CB1 and CB2,  are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the ECS performs different tasks with the goal of maintaining homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

The endocrine system is the collection of glands in the body that secrete hormones into the bloodstream to be carried towards distant target organs. The central neuroendocrine systems is the interface between the brain and the rest of the endocrine systems. The part of the brain that balances the release of hormones in the body is called the hypothalamus and sits right on top of the pituitary gland where it regulates stress, metabolism, growth, reproduction, and lactation.

All of these processes are regulated by the hypothalamus releasing or inhibiting the release of hormones by the pituitary gland. The release of pituitary hormones affects downstream physiological functions. Other hypothalamic neuroendocrine cells control water/salt balance, and lactation and childbirth, through the release of vasopressin and oxytocin. Together, these hypothalamic neuroendocrine functions enable the central nervous system to respond rapidly to internal or external environmental change, and to maintain a response through endocrine hormonal transducers. The ECS modulates the regulation of the neuroendocrine system, which regulates organ function and stress response and helps maintain a healthy balance across the neuroendocrine system and related physiological body system.

Targeting the Endocannabinoid System for Endocrine Regulation

Cannabinoids in cannabis have long been known to be able to affect the secretion of pituitary hormones. By way of the ECS we regulate our hormonal balance, both up and down, through a direct effect on the organs themselves. The stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is a crucial neuroendocrine response to stress and is dependant on CB1 receptor-mediated signaling. Activating the CB1 receptors in the hypothalamus results in a signaling cascade that ultimately inhibits overall neuroendocrine function. Stress is well known to affect endocrine function and a poorly regulated endocrine system can lead to major health problems. The endocrine response, as part of the HPA axis, is central to its regulation.

Up until a few years ago, the stimulatory effects of cannabinoids on the HPA axis was considered as an exception. The commonly accepted view of the ECS was that it played a general inhibitory role on neuroendocrine functions. We now understand that cannabinoids can have both stimulatory and inhibitory effects on the HPA axis which is how it’s able to modulate its regulation. These biphasic effects of cannabinoids, both stimulatory and inhibitory, are increasingly revealing themselves as we look closer at the interactions between the ECS and the endocrine system.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

This brings us to the cannabinoid du jour, cannabidiol or CBD. Long playing the second fiddle to the more active tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not interact strongly with either the CB1 or CB2 receptors. Instead, CBD is able to increase endocannabinoid tone by inhibiting fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) and enzyme that breaks down cannabinoids in the body.  FAAH inhibitors may be helpful for people with anxiety-related disorders because they appear to improve the regulation of the HPA axis. It’s unknown precisely how this happens, but it appears they help to modulate the sensitivity of the cannabinoid receptors in the body.

In addition to its stimulatory effects on HPA, the ECS also plays a critical inhibitory role in regulating HPA functions. Researchers found that endocannabinoid signaling negatively modulates the stress-induced activation of the HPA axis, confirming the notion that an increase in endocannabinoid signaling activity may constitute a novel approach to improving the lives of people with anxiety-related disorders.

Currently, the best way to boost endocannabinoid signaling, improve the regulation of the HPA,, and promote a healthy endocrine system is the use of a dietary cannabinoid supplement made from hemp. These products contain naturally occurring cannabinoids, including CBD, which have been shown to naturally increase ECS tone which helps to improve the regulation of homeostasis across the HPA axis. This will improve both the physiological and psychological responses to stress making us more likely to resist the cascade that leads to HPA dysfunction and endocrine-related health problems. Enjoy a cannabinoid supplement every day!

Independent Testing of European CBD and Hemp Oils Leads to Alarming Discoveries

Independent Testing of European CBD and Hemp Oils Leads to Alarming Discoveries

When choosing CBD for health, it’s good to be on alert and do your research. It’s not easy when there are so many variables in the CBD industries. We at HempingtonPost have a little help from our trusted business associates, while doing our own do-diligence, This is how and why Hempington Post is building our Trusted HEMP Product Marketplace with Made in America and Made with Integrity Hemp Products!

Comments from Robert Cronin of Red LLama Trading
Interesting study of oils from Europe. Turns out that only about 1/3 are safe and even that is suspect. Big problem is labeling: i.e., what is CBD oil from Hemp, and what is Hemp oil. Hemp oil is from hemp seeds, not the plant, and has no CBD’s in it. None. CBD oil from what is CBD oil fHemp, according to the US Gov and what they allow to be imported, MUST be from the stalk and the hart, not the flowers or leaves, and only from male plants not female plants. That, they say, is illegal to import.

A concurrative problem is the content of THC; often more than the allowable limits. I suspect that may be that European growers are starting to make their oils from female hemp plants doing full plant extraction. The female has more CBD and other cannabinoids. BUT, it also has more THC! This oil should is not legal to be imported since it is exactly against US Custom regulations, but it is being imported. It will continue until legality issues are resolved here in US.

Independent Testing of European CBD and Hemp Oils Leads to Alarming Discoveries
May 25, 2017 by Pavel Kubu 0 Comments

Independent testing on the quality and composition of CBDs and hemp oils offered on the European market has confirmed substantial deficiencies – and possibly even risks to consumers.

Results clearly indicate the need to introduce precise standards for the safe production and distribution of cannabis-based products – and systematically monitor their adherence.

The historically first independent testing of hemp oils and certain types of commercially available CBDs (i.e. materials from cannabis having no psychotropic effects) has taken place in cooperation with the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague (VŠCHT). Here, in the framework of the Department of Food Analysis and Nutrition, is Europe’s first laboratory certified by the Patient Focused Certification program also being used in training by Americans for Safe Access in the U.S.

The team led by Professor Jana Hajšlová tested a total of 29 oils containing cannabidiol and another 25 oils extracted from hemp seeds. All tested products were purchased on the European market in the last quarter of 2016. The International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute (ICCI), headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic, performed the final assessment of the results.

Besides verifying whether the content of CBD stated by the producer on the packaging truly reflects the reality, the quality of cannabis-based foods was assessed chiefly on the basis of two key criteria. The first to go under the microscope were multi-nuclear polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (e.g. benz(o)pyrene), which the International Classification for Cancer Research ranks among carcinogens. The ICCI director of research, Tomas Zabransky, warned: “These are substances whose carcinogenicity was proven experimentally on animals, and it has been proven in a great number of epidemiological studies. Mainly for ill persons trying to take advantage of the known beneficial effects of CBD, these hydrocarbons are undeniably dangerous, mainly upon long-term use.”

The second aspect that was given special attention during chemical analysis was the content of tetrahydrocannabinol – THC. “THC is another medically active substance from cannabis, but as opposed to CBD it is psychoactive,” Zabransky said. “So even relatively low amounts can cause changes in perception among more sensitive individuals, which can threaten their capacity to drive and make decisions in general – especially in case of being unaware of the possibilities of influencing one’s psyche by an external substance. Another problem among drivers could be testing positive during traffic controls, which can lead at the very least to losing one’s driving privileges.”

So what results did the analysis uncover? Worse results than the initiators themselves expected. In terms of the content of polyaromatic hydrocarbons, which can help cancerous growth, only 9 of the 29 tested CBD oils were satisfactory.1 That’s less than one third.

A bit better off were those hemp oils, which in reality came from seeds and not the plant. In this category, legislative limits were met in a full 92 percent of the 23 tested products.

The analysis also uncovered gaps in information that producers provide to customers regarding the composition of the product. Of 10 tested CBD oils, six did not state any THC content. This finding is alarming, especially when the consumer can realistically be punished for exceeding the permitted level of THC in the blood – whether during traffic stops or at work.

For a fourth of the tested oils, the user can be unknowingly exposed to this risk even when using the recommended dose. For another 10 percent of oils, this risk exists in relation to using the maximum dose stated on the packaging.

What comes next? The ICCI are contacting all manufacturers of tested cannabis foods, share the results and offer help when checking the safety and increasing the quality of the product. The list of those foods satisfying the limits in the analysis is available to all consumers at the website of PFC International.

Information will be provided to members of patient organizations associated in the international association IMCPC by means of the society KOPAC regarding the quality of a specific oil they are using, as to whether it was among those tested, and if so, with what results.
