CBD Hemp Oil

Prior to my collaboration with CBD Bio Naturals, I did know a little bit about CBD Hemp Oil and what it could be used for. I had taken Drugs, Brain and Behavior as one of my Psychology classes in college and remembered that THC could be medicinally beneficial to patients that were suffering from epilepsy, migraines, glaucoma, nausea, sleep problems, anxiety and depression. I remembered less about CBD but do recall learning that it's similar to a naturopathic physician's way of opting out of taking pain killers and could be used for similar symptoms like those mentioned above. I had also seen CBD lotion in a yoga studio that was marketed toward helping localized muscle and joint pain. 

I should also note that I had used CBD prior to our partnership with CBD Bio Naturals once, and not in the form of drops. I had gone to my primary care physician, seeking something to alleviate migraines I'd been suffering from. Prior to my moon cycle, I would often get debilitating migraines that lasted anywhere from four hours to two days. They made it impossible to eat, sleep, drive and go about my day-to-day life. My doctor prescribed me with a migraine medication which I was to take at the first start of my auras but he also encouraged me to check out the Apothecary and look into getting two things: Magnesium and CBD. I was able to find pure Magnesium tablets and was also encouraged to consider a CBD pen. It was a vaporizer that had mint flavored CBD oil inside. I found both the magnesium and the pen to be super useful supplements, sometimes in addition to medication, for treating my migraines. I can happily write this now and say we've been on the road since May 1st 2018 and I've only had to take my migraine medication once.

What is CBD?

We've all heard of the plant, Cannabis. Many of us are probably also familiar with it's two predominate compounds that make up it's chemical structure: THC and CBD. THC is Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol and CBD is Cannabidiol. THC is the compound that gives users "the high" effects after ingestion while CBD is more commonly known for it's medicinal value. The main difference between the two is that CBD does not give users the psychoactive experience that THC does. However, both provoke a response within our bodies. New findings surface daily about the medicinal benefits of this plant, the variety of ways it can be injested and the multitude of ways it can be used as a healer. 

How does CBD Work?

In July of 2018, Jon Johnson of Medical News Today wrote an article outlining the benefits, side effects and legality that surrounds the prominent use of cannabidiols in the U.S. today. Noting that in some states, medical marijuana is not yet legal but CBD oil as a hemp product is.

But how does CBD work? What are the pharmacokinetics behind it? "All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors," Jonhson writes, "the CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, among other factors. THC attaches to these receptors. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain."

Johnson goes on to explain the research behind how CBD can aid in the treatment of epilepsy, anxiety, type 1 diabetes, acne and Alzheimer's disease. But to my surprise, "researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor. Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids." 

Alternative medicine is on the rise. Holistically, as a society we are starting to view the practice of medicine as more integrative than we use to. More people, myself included, are seeking options without prescription medication and asking for home remedies, diet changes and lifestyle alterations as alternative treatments.

Our Experience with CBD Bio Drops

There's 250mg in our CBD Bio Naturals tincture but you can purchase up to 500mg at once. One serving size is up to you, I personally use 5+ drops. There's a lot of information out there regarding the dosing of CBD and from what I've found it's variable. The most consistent mg I've seen is anywhere from 2.5-20mg per serving but it depends on a lot of factors (what you're using it for: general health vs. chronic pain, height, weight, etc). You simply drop the CBD oil under your tongue, swallow and go about your day. 

There isn't really a taste, if anything, it's similar to a mint. There are no intoxicating effects and you are safe to operate machinery/drive post ingestion. Personally, it helped me with the following below:

  • Sleep - It really aids my sleep regulation and helps me get a full 8 hours without waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom
  • PMS cramps - My cramps are no joke and this helped alleviate them quite a bit
  • PMS Migraines - Similar to my CBD pen, it helped cope with my migraines and lessened the amount of times by 75% that I needed to use actual medication
  • Mood - Traveling is stressful. Living in an RV there's a lot of stop and go. Rarely we sleep in one place for more than two nights. Taking this in the morning helps me flow through my day stress free

All in All

Would I recommend it? Yes. Is everyones body different? Yes. Will you metabolism this differently than I did? Probably. Will you have the same symptoms going into it? No. Will you experience the same effects? It's hard to say. But in a society that turns to pills before alternative medicine first... I can genuinely say it's worth you give it a shot! You can't really go wrong when all of their ingredients are raw, organic, gluten-free, vegan AND made with NO refined sugar and ZERO THC. And if that's not enough for you, it's made with 100% non-GMO Colorado grown hemp plants that were farmed with strict organic farming practices.
