Fibromyalgia and CBD

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Fibromyalgia, a debilitating disease affecting as many as 5 million Americans, interrupts the way the brain processes pain signals, amplifying these sensations to unbearable levels. It’s generally characterized by the presence of tender points on the body – sites on the shoulders, neck, arms, back, hips, and legs are hyper-sensitive.   Even the most miniscule of touches to these areas can be extremely painful.

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Updated 2/23/2018 New Studies   There is this concept that the only people who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are combat veterans, and while many vets do (and their sacrifices are greatly appreciated), it’s estimated that 70% of American adults have experienced an extremely stressful event at least once in their lives.

Is Cannabidiol an Option for People with OCD?

Posted by Seth B on

Most people, at one time or another, have decided that they needed to hit the lock button on their car key a second time, or have double-checked to make sure they locked the front door before leaving their home. Sometimes, though, certain behaviors can become compulsions that people feel they have to perform, sometimes even in order to prevent a catastrophe from happening to them or their loved ones. When a person can't control their disturbing thoughts or stop these behaviors, they may have a mental health condition known as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).   According to the International OCD Foundation,...
