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 pain relief wi...
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 b...
Can CBD help me if I’m a health human?
The answer is yes! CBD can only help you. CBD can NOT harm you!

Hemp Seed – Nutritious, Healthy Base Oil
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.
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...
