  1. Ibuprofen VS CBD

    Are you living with chronic pain? You’re not alone. 

     

    Treatment options can be limited, especially for severe chronic pain, leaving many people desperate and frustrated. Worst of all, many common medications for pain relief – both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) can be accompanied by all kinds of unwanted and unpleasant side effects.

    Take ibuprofen, for example. It’s one of the most common pain relief medications, and it’s considered to be very safe. However, regular and long-term ibuprofen use is associated with many side effects, some life-threatening, like increased risk of heart attack and stomach bleeding. It’s also unsafe to use for those with certain gastrointestinal problems, like stomach ulcers.

     

    Thankfully, there are alternatives, such as cannabidiol (CBD), which is quickly becoming a popular option for those seeking daily ...

  2. CBD Facts you need to know

    CBD Oil will Not get you high

    CBD does not cause the feeling of being ‘high’ that is often associated with cannabis. The ‘high’ is caused by THC. THC binds tightly with CB1 and CB2 nerve receptors in the brain and throughout the body. CBD does not bind the receptors and instead causes its therapeutic actions through more indirect means.

    Because CBD doesn’t make you feel intoxicated, it is a great option for workers, parents, children and for any one in their every day life.

    Many health conditions, both severe, both severe and not, are treated with pharmaceutical drugs. Unfortunately, many of these drugs have unpleasant or dangerous side effects. In some instances, CBD may offer non-toxic, virtually side-effects free, natural benefits for individuals who want to avoid or reduce the number of pharmaceuticals they are taking.

     

    CBD is a main Component of Cannabis

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a primary component of cannabis. It is one of more than 85 compounds unique to the plant and grouped under the umbrella term Cannabinoids. CBD undergone the heaviest scientific study.

    The Human body produces Cannabinoids and CBD Oil helps

    Phyto cannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from plants. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced naturally in the human body.

    This molecule activates the CB1 receptor.

    Benefits of activating the CB1 receptor are:

    • Lowering Anxiety
    • Lowering blood pressure
    • Relieving depression
    • Increasing myelin formation
    • Decreasing intestinal inflammation
    • Reducing fear and paranoia
    • Increasing BDNF levels
    • Increasing PPARy expression
    • Reducing GPR55 signalling
    • Lowering prolactin

    An enzyme in the blood known as FAAH is responsible for breaking down anandamide. CBD is an inhibitor of FAAH, meaning more anandamide to be available to the CB1 receptors.

    Anandamide has been shown to stop proliferation of breast cancer cells, promote anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects and increases...

  4. The most effective CBD Carrier oils

    As the usage of CBD increases, new products are emerging. There are a number of different carrier oils available to manufactures. However, just like any product, some base oils are better than others.

     

    In this blog from Mary Jane Labs, will cover the industry’s 3 most commonly used bases/carrier oils in detail and highlight their respective benefits. These are what are considered the most effective CBD Carrier oils.

    When buying CBD products, these base ingredients will most likely cross your path.

     

    Hemp Seed – Nutritious, Healthy Base Oil

    Hemp seed oil comes from the same Hemp plant as CBD. That said, Hemp seed oil is made from pressing the seeds. It does not contain any significant amount of Cannabidiol. However, numerous CBD manufacturers have chosen Hemp seed oil as their carrier oil of choice. Once purified, Hemp seed oil has a pleasant, almost nutty flavour and a golden colour. Without a doubt, it is among the healthiest of all the CBD carrier oils. This is because it contains high levels of Omega-3 and Omega-6. It is also abundant in other vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, it has a reputation for being a powerful antioxidant. Combined with CBD (Cannabidiol oil), the 2 ingredients work in synergy to produce a potent remedy.

     

    Olive Oil – An Effective Carrier for Cannabidiol

    Olive oil is something that we find in many kitchens. It is a liquid fat made from pressing whole Olives (Olea European). This oil is thick with a strong, fruity flavour and is pale yellow in colour. Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) are the main type of fat in Olive oil. These are healthy dietary fats and will provide significant health benefits. It is an anti-inflammatory and will reduce the risk of heart disease. Olive oil is probably the second most popular transport method for CBD oil tinctures. Importantly, it has high levels of bioavailability. This means it enters circulation quickly when introduced into the body and is able to have an active effect.

  5. How CBD is Extracted from Hemp – Two common ways

    Although there are several ways to extract CBD from the Hemp plant, the two that are most common are Ethanol extraction and CO2 extraction. Both have advantages and disadvantages and both are capable of producing a first-rate product, but its important to know the difference.

     

    Ethanol extraction:

    When extracting CBD oil from Hemp using Ethanol extraction, the first thing you should do is heat the plant material to achieve something called Decarboxylation (That’s the removal of carbon atoms from the carbon chain.)

    That then leaves you with a fine, green powder that is subsequently soaked in a solvent, which in this case is Ethanol. After a while, the solution is filtered, the liquid separates from the plant matter and eventually, the Ethanol evaporates.

     

    One of the arguments in favour of Ethanol extraction is that it maintains the chemical ratios that occur naturally in Hemp plants. So, you g...
