CBD and Epilepsy: A Fresh Look at New Studies

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Epilepsy, which affects more people than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson's combined (yet receives fewer Federal dollars per patient than each of these), seems to be one of the most well-known examples of anecdotal evidence regarding CBD, especially if you live here in Colorado. Whether it’s Charlotte’s Web (we’ll touch on why it’s named that a bit later) or the droves of out-of-staters coming here to seek relief, chances are you’ve at least heard about the effects of CBD on epilepsy and other similar diseases. Despite the fear that CBD-rich marijuana extracts can potentially increase the risk...

Can CBD play a role in Diabetes?

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Diabetes mellitus is a group of autoimmune diseases characterized by defects in insulin secretion or production resulting in hyperglycemia (an abnormally high concentration of glucose in the blood) – and it affects approximately 8.3% of the US population and 6.8% of Canadians. In 2007, diabetes contributed to over 200,000 deaths in the US alone. Although the early development of insulin medications has made diabetes treatable, no cure exists and symptoms tend to worsen as the disease progresses. A growing body of evidence, however, points to medical marijuana as a promising therapy. In fact, research shows that marijuana – both CBD...

CBD may be helping hand for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

In the United States, about one in ten people live with some form of arthritis – painfully damaging the joints of roughly 30 million sufferers each day – making it the leading cause of disability in the US. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and occurs when a person’s cartilage simply wears away. It can affect the knees, hips, lower back, hands, and neck.

Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful...

5 Autoimmune Disorders CBD Has Shown Great Promise In

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is making huge strides throughout the country for those with autoimmune disorders. Instead of gulping down piles of blue, yellow, and purple pills that only address symptoms – and probably don’t even work, coming from someone who has an autoimmune disorder – sufferers can simply ingest a part of a plant. Cannabis, more specifically CBD, can benefit patients suffering from a wide range of autoimmune disorders because, coincidentally, the compound activates a system of receptors inherently present in the human body that regulate inflammation and immune cell activity. There’s a lot to be learned about all the different cannabinoids found...

CBD and Crohn’s Disease

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Crohn’s Disease, a severe form of IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, as well as one’s own immune system. It can be a painful, uncomfortable and often debilitating disease with no cure. Crohn’s afflicts the digestive tract of more than half a million people in the US – resulting in abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloody stool, severe vomiting, and extreme weight loss. It can even result in skin and eye conditions, as well as arthritis. Cannabidiol, better known as CBD and primarily found in hemp – now legally available in all fifty states with the passing of the...
