Why CBD Doesn’t Work

Almost everyday, we hear from who have had frustrating experiences with . Maybe you’ve had similar experiences, especially if you:

  • Took CBD as an oil, gummy, or other edible
  • Tried a generic CBD formula
  • Quickly stopped CBD after not seeing fast results
  • Chose a cheap, low-quality CBD brand

If that sounds familiar to your experience, you’re in luck! These are common pitfalls that CBD customers often fall into, but there are ways to avoid these issues entirely. Below, we’ll discuss these issues (and more) in detail, why they prevent a fully satisfying CBD experience, and what you can do to make sure you get the full benefits that CBD has to offer.

Problem #1: Using CBD Products with Low Bioavailability 

The biggest problem customers face when trying to use CBD products is the lack of bioavailability. In short, bioavailability refers to how easily medicine or other substances  (including CBD) can be absorbed into your body. If you’re using a CBD product with low bioavailability, then you may not have had enough CBD absorbed into your body to feel the active effects.

Factors that Affect Bioavailability

Not sure what impacts CBD’s bioavailability? There are several factors that can increase, or decrease, CBD’s ability to absorb into your bloodstream:

  • Method of Use: Patches or inhaled forms of CBD usually have higher levels of bioavailability because in this delivery method, the CBD avoids the digestive system. Ingestible forms of CBD, like oils or capsules, usually have low levels of bioavailability, since your digestive system destroys most of the CBD.
  • Product Purity: If your CBD product has ingredient fillers or contaminants, you’re not going to get the levels of absorption you would with pure CBD products.
  • Product Design: Certain CBD products may be specifically designed from the beginning to increase bioavailability (like PhenoLife). This is especially important for ingestible forms of CBD, since it has to survive harsh stomach acids. 

Problem #2: Using the Wrong CBD Formula

Another common issue we see customers face is getting the wrong kind of CBD formula. If you don’t get a CBD formula that’s a good match for your challenge, then you may not get the results you were hoping for. Let’s take a look at the different kinds of CBD formulas that you’ll commonly see on the market.

Broad-Spectrum CBD

Broad-spectrum CBD is the same as full-spectrum CBD, except the trace amounts of have been removed. This may allow customers to still benefit from the entourage effect from other cannabinoids and present in the products while avoiding THC.

CBD-Isolate

Products made with CBD-isolate will contain only CBD. None of the other cannabinoids or terpenes present in the sourced hemp will be present. This means customers won’t be able to benefit from the entourage effect, and customers will generally pay a premium price, since isolating CBD requires extensive processing.

Catered Formulas

Many CBD brands create CBD formulas that include other active ingredients to help target specific health challenges. Choosing a CBD product that’s targeted to help soothe anxiety when you’re looking to manage chronic pain might not give you the results you were hoping for. 

If you are trying to hone in on a targeted health challenge, a catered, full-spectrum CBD formula is the best choice for maximum results.

Problem #3: Inconsistent or Improper CBD Dosing

This is one of the most common problems we see with customers that say that they felt some effects from CBD but never got the results they were looking for. It’s a confusing issue because most customers will feel CBD the very first time they take it, but they won’t get the best results on the first dose

To start, your first dose is not likely to be the amount of CBD you take forever. Regardless of what CBD product you use, we usually recommend our customers start with low doses and slowly work their way up as they understand how a specific product will make them feel. Starting with a huge CBD dose can cause uncomfortable side-effects.

CBD Needs Consistent Dosing To Work

Not only do you need to work up to your ideal dose of CBD, but you need to regularly take it to begin to feel the best effects. Usually, this takes up around 10 days of daily CBD dosing of any product you choose. We’ve noticed many customers take CBD for just a few days and quit without giving the CBD enough time to fully saturate the body. 

Give yourself time to find the ideal dose and then consistently take that dose for the best effects.

Problem #4: Choosing the Wrong Delivery System

As we mentioned in the previous point, different forms of CBD offer different advantages for customers. Certain delivery methods of CBD are better for helping to manage certain health challenges, and a delivery mismatch can make it feel like CBD isn’t offering the benefits it’s supposed to. Here’s a quick overview of the primary kinds of CBD and what to expect during use:

Inhalable Forms of CBD

Forms of CBD that you can inhale will enter your bloodstream the fastest, and since it bypasses your digestive system, the bioavailability of inhaled CBD is generally high (around 30%). This form of CBD is great for sudden, unexpected problems, like acute pain or a attack, but the effects don’t last very long compared to ingestible forms of CBD or transdermal patches.

Transdermal CBD Patches

Transdermal CBD patches allow for consistent CBD dosing for up to 8 hours, and with bioavailability levels at 80%, they are perfect for consistent, long-term dosing. However, it can take a while for the CBD to absorb through your skin and reach your bloodstream, which makes patches a poor choice for sudden, unexpected issues. 

Also, transdermal patches are not the same as topical CBD lotions. Topical lotions may provide some local relief directly where applied, but they are not designed to deliver CBD into the bloodstream. That means using lotions to help with widespread pain or anxiety will never provide the results you want.

Ingestible Forms of CBD

Finally, ingestible forms of CBD, while popular, have notoriously low bioavailability levels. Most ingestible forms only have 6% bioavailability, which means products like oils, tinctures, or capsules need extra , consistent doses to be effective. Ingestible CBD tends to have longer effects than inhalable forms of CBD and will usually take effect faster than transdermal patches.

Problem #5: Fraudulent CBD Products

In the UK, the CBD isn’t regulated by a formal government body. That means it’s up to CBD brands to police themselves to provide pure, high-grade products. Some less reputable brands will add fillers to their CBD products (and not disclose it), or they may be lying about how much CBD is in their products. 

This is a common issue. A study performed by the National Institute of Health showed that, from their sampling of CBD products, 26% contained less CBD than advertised, while 43% contained more CBD than advertised. This same study also showed that 21% of these products also contained THC levels above the legal limit, which was “enough to intoxicate children.”

Your CBD product may not have worked because it didn’t have the amount of CBD as advertised.

How PhenoLife Makes CBD That

If you think that you’re ready to give CBD another try, then take a look at how PhenoLife resolves these common problems with CBD

PhenoLife Products Offer Superior Bioavailability

We have crafted our products specifically to increase bioavailability. First, our products like the PhenoPen and the PhenoPatch have naturally high rates of absorption. Next, our PhenoGel capsules use advanced microencapsulation technology to offer superior bioavailability to traditional CBD ingestible products. 

PhenoGel capsules are made with a protective coating that prevents CBD from being destroyed by your stomach acid (and that protective coating is dissolved from a specific enzyme released from the pancreas). Then, the microbead technology releases our CBD formula in a controlled dose, which gives your body a chance to absorb more CBD (while also helping the effects last longer).

PhenoLife Uses Full-Spectrum, Targeted Formulas For Superior Results

PhenoLife uses full-spectrum CBD in all of our products, since we want our products to provide the best results possible. We’ve also created targeted formulas for the three most common health challenges that CBD has the potential to help manage: 

  • Body for managing pain 
  • Mind for soothing anxiety 
  • Sleep for encouraging a full night of

All three of our formulas are available with PhenoPen, PhenoGel, and PhenoPatch.

PhenoLife Offers the Best CBD Delivery Systems

PhenoLife has developed three primary methods of taking CBD, each that have their own pros and cons of use:

PhenoPen

PhenoPen creates a vapor that is inhaled by users, which quickly delivers CBD into the bloodstream. This form of CBD is ideal for fast-acting relief for acute, onset challenges (like unexpected pain or an anxiety attack). However, the effects are short-lived, which may present an issue for customers looking for a longer-lasting option (like for help sleeping).

PhenoPatch

PhenoPatch is a transdermal patch that is applied directly onto your skin to deliver a slow, controlled dose of CBD. The patch lasts up to 8 hours, which makes it a great choice for customers wanting to use CBD to help get a good night’s rest, or for customers that want an all-day CBD solution. 

However, it can take 45 minutes to an hour for customers to feel the effects of the PhenoPatch, which makes it a less optimal choice for trying to manage acute pain or a bout of unexpected stress.

PhenoGel

PhenoGel is a slow-release gel capsule specifically designed to enhance CBD absorption. The effects of the capsules take longer than the PhenoPen, but the effects will last longer than inhaling vapor. PhenoGel capsules will begin to take effect faster than the PhenoPatch, but the effects last a few hours less than the patches. 

PhenoGel shines as a convenient way to take CBD regardless of where you are. If you want a discrete, easy way to take CBD (without having to manage a patch), then PhenoGel may be your ideal choice.

Combined Solutions

We encourage customers to combine PhenoLife products if there doesn’t seem to be a single product that meets their needs. This is a common practice for customers who struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep, who want to manage chronic pain consistently but also experience acute pain spikes, or who want to keep general anxiety low while also being prone to panic attacks.

PhenoLife Takes CBD Seriously

We want our customers to trust us, but we understand that trust has to be earned. That’s why we perform third-party lab testing on all of our products, which demonstrates:

  • The amount of CBD labeled on products is accurate
  • The amount of other labeled cannabinoids is accurate
  • The lack of contamination from heavy metals

We also work to educate customers on the best way to take CBD, including ideal initial doses, how to step up to more potent doses, and techniques to follow if the desired results aren’t being experienced.

How CBD Lab Testing Works & Why It’s Important

When customers start shopping for ideal products, they’re often overwhelmed by the enormous amount of products and brands to choose from. While we encourage customers to find CBD products that fit their lifestyle, there is one quality that should never be compromised on: third party lab tests. 

Independent, 3rd party tests are the first thing you should look for in any CBD product.

Let’s discuss how works for CBD products, and why it’s so important to make sure any CBD product you buy has been tested.

How Works: The Process

The process of testing CBD is simple. A brand will send a sample to an independent, 3rd party lab, and that lab will run a test to see all the compounds or impurities that might be in the product. For CBD products, a lab result will show:

  • All cannabinoids and naturally present in the sourced hemp
  • Any impurities present, like heavy metals or pesticides

Most brands have lab available on their website for easy viewing, while others will have information on where to see lab results on their product packaging. Often, brands may incorporate both to make sure that customers have easy access to lab reports.

What is 3rd Party Testing

Third party testing means that the lab that is testing the CBD products is not affiliated with the brand or the CBD industry in any way. The separation of the lab from the entire CBD industry helps remove any potential conflict of interests, and customers can fully trust the results from the lab.

The Importance of Testing

Third party testing is crucially important to making sure your CBD product is pure and safe. Most countries (including the USA and the UK), don’t regulate the CBD industry, which means there’s no legal consequence for a brand to lie about how pure their product is. 

If your CBD product isn’t pure, you’ll run into issues with trying to get the best results. If there’s simply less CBD in the product than claimed, you’ll run into issues with absorption and the relief you’re looking for. If there’s heavy metals or pesticides present, the product could be a danger to your health, and could even exacerbate the health issues you’re trying to manage.

What Companies Test & Why

  • To confirm purity: This is the primary reason for third party testing. It confirms that there is only hemp-derived materials in the product (or the only ingredients present are the ones advertised). It also confirms the concentration of CBD, which can be helpful for dosing. 
  • To avoid heavy metals and pesticides: The presence of heavy metals and pesticides can be harmful, and it also indicates a fundamental problem in the manufacturing process. 

Lab Testing: What to Look For

There are a lot of different kinds of third party tests a brand may conduct. Depending on what you want to avoid (or what you want to make sure you have), you may want to make sure that a specific brand conducts a specific kind of test:

Chromatography (or LC)

Liquid chromatography (or high-performance liquid chromatography, shortened to LC or HPLC respectively), is the test that is conducted to show what kinds of cannabinoids are present in a CBD product and what concentrations they have. 

This test is important if you are trying to use certain kinds of cannabinoids (for example, if a brand claims to have an added concentration of a minor cannabinoid, LC will prove that the cannabinoid is present at those higher concentrations). LC will also show which cannabinoids are lacking (which is important if you are buying CBD isolate, which only contains CBD).

Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR)

Polymerase chain reactions (or PCR) tests are used to make sure there isn’t contamination of bacteria, fungus, or other foreign biological substance. This test won’t tell you anything about what kinds of cannabinoids are present, but it will help to ensure there aren’t any harmful biological contaminants that you should avoid. 

For CBD products, the PCR test makes sure that the hemp was harvested and stored safely (mold can be a significant issue with harvested cannabis).

Mass Spectrometry (MS)

Finally, mass spectrometry, or MS, testing is used to confirm that there are no heavy metals present in your CBD product. Poor manufacturing standards are what most commonly cause heavy metal contamination, and heavy metal poisoning can cause severe health issues. 

Some brands may use MS testing to determine what cannabinoids are present, similar to LC. This is another common use for MS testing, though both LC and MS testing will provide the most accurate cannabinoid profiles.

Who ’t Do it & Why

Since testing is so important, it may be confusing why a brand would skip the testing process. 

  • Testing costs money and is optional: Since the market is unregulated, brands don’t have to test their products. So, if one is interested in trying to make as much money as possible instead of providing a consistently pure, high-quality product, they may skip the testing phase. 
  • New to market: A brand may be brand-new to the market and not yet able to get tests back on their products. This could be an innocent mistake (maybe the brand is still learning how to best safeguard the purity of their product). Regardless, this is not a good reason to skip lab testing.
  • Communication : It’s very possible that a brand does conduct third party testing, but they don’t offer the lab results on their site. This is a frequent occurrence, especially for brands that may not rely heavily on online sales. If you come across a brand that looks great, but you can’t find the lab tests, ask! Almost any brand will provide lab results when requested (if they are getting lab tests to begin with).

If you come across a brand that seems suspiciously inexpensive, check to see if they offer third-party lab results. If they don’t, that’s likely why they can offer such cheap prices, and you should choose a more trustworthy brand.

PhenoLife: Third Party Tested with Certificate of Analysis

Our primary focus is to make sure that PhenoLife products are pure, safe, and easy to absorb. That means we take third party testing seriously, and we have performed it on all of our products since our inception. 

Customers can look at our certificate of analysis (or COA) which shows the results of third party lab reports we request. You’ll be able to see:

  • The full cannabinoid profile of our products
  • The concentrations of each cannabinoid present
  • Results showing no biological contamination 
  • Results showing no heavy metal contamination

If you have questions about our COA, the kinds of lab tests we request, or anything regarding the purity of our products, please ask! We’ll make sure that you can confidently buy knowing that PhenoLife is provably pure and safe.

Trick or Treat: The CBD facts (or myths) explained.

In the spirit of Halloween, the experts at PhenoLife want to dive into the tricks or treats of using . The following six statements will either be a CBD (something that is true) or a trick (something that is not true about CBD).

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Gets You High

There can be a lot of confusion about how CBD affects you. After all, it comes from cannabis (which is famous for getting high), and many customers are concerned that using CBD will get them unexpectedly or uncomfortably high. 

So, is this a trick or a treat?

CBD Gets Your High: Trick

This is a trick. While CBD is found in cannabis, it is not intoxicating. The compound responsible for the traditional high associated with cannabis is THC, which is a restricted substance in most countries. However, CBD is unrestricted in most countries, largely in part to the fact that it doesn’t make you high. 

However, just because CBD doesn’t get you high doesn’t mean you won’t feel it. CBD can make you sleep and can affect your mood, and there’s a small percentage of people who won’t tolerate the effects of CBD well. However, the vast majority of customers that use CBD will avoid some of the uncomfortable side-effects, especially if they start with low, comfortable doses.

TRICK or TREAT: All CBD Products is the Same

The market is full of CBD choices, and while there’s a difference in how you can take CBD, there’s not a difference in the CBD itself, right?

All CBD is the Same: Trick

This is a huge trick. There are enormous differences between CBD products (aside from products being oils, capsules, etc.). First, the kind of CBD used can be . Customers are often surprised (and a bit confused), when they discover that there are three kinds of CBD:

  • Full-spectrum CBD: This is the least processed form of CBD. It contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp, which may help the CBD product be more effective. PhenoLife products use full-spectrum CBD in all of their products. 
  • Broad-spectrum CBD: This form of CBD is slightly more processed. It still contains many of the natural cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp, with the noticeable lack of THC. Some customers may want to avoid THC, even legal, trace amounts, but also take advantage of the other natural cannabinoids and terpenes present in the hemp.
  • CBD isolate: This is the most processed form of CBD. It contains only CBD (so no other cannabinoids or terpenes).This form of CBD is usually the most expensive, since it requires far more effort to make sure that only CBD is present. 

In addition to the different kinds of CBD, there’s a difference between the same kinds of CBD. Most countries don’t regulate the CBD industry at all, which means companies can lie about what kind of CBD is in their product, how much CBD is in their product, and whether or not there’s something else in their product besides CBD.

This is why you should always make sure that any CBD products you buy are tested by a third-party lab, and that you have access to those . Third-party testing is a common practice by high-end CBD brands, and it’s the only way you can know for sure what is and is not in your CBD product.

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Helps with

Anxiety can be difficult to manage for many people. Some may have trouble getting access to healthcare to get prescriptions, while others may struggle to handle the side-effects of anti-anxiety medications like Zoloft or Prozac. Even medications for acute anxiety, like Xanax, are hard to use while you need to go about your normal day. 

So, can CBD help with anxiety?

CBD Helps with Anxiety: Treat

Treat! While the research into CBD is still pretty early, the research that we have strongly suggests that CBD can help to manage all kinds of anxiety disorders. A 2015 study suggests that CBD may be able to treat a wide range of anxiety disorders without harmful side-effects. 

Another 2019 study showed that 79% of participants reported lower anxiety in the first month of using CBD, and those positive results continued to be reported the months that the study was conducted. If you have anxiety , and you want to stop taking traditional anti-anxiety medications (or you can’t take them or don’t have access to them) CBD could be an option.

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Helps When You’ve Gotten Too High

If you have legal access to THC products, you may have experienced a situation when you’ve gotten “too high.” While this won’t create a medical emergency, it can still be an uncomfortable experience that lasts for hours. 

There’s several purported home remedies (like sucking on a lemon or chewing peppercorns), but several people have begun to say that CBD might be able to help, too. So, can CBD help when you’ve gotten too high?

CBD Helps When You’ve Gotten Too High: Treat

Treat! There’s some early research that suggests CBD can help you from getting too high and can soothe a high that is too strong. Since THC and CBD with your endocannabinoid receptors the same way, if CBD attaches first, it will block THC from attaching, so you won’t get as high or for as long. 

CBD can also help soothe the negative side-effects of THC, especially increasing anxiety or stress. As we’ve already mentioned CBD can help to reduce anxiety, so it can help to level out your high if you begin to feel stressed or panicked. 

Research into how THC and CBD interact is still early, but if you have legal access to THC and accidentally get too high, then CBD might be able to help!

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Can Be Absorbed Through Your Skin

Most people know that you can inhale or ingest CBD to get results, but there are several different kinds of products that are now available on the market.. There are CBD-infused bath bombs, lotions, and even patches, all claiming to be able to deliver CBD into the bloodstream. It’s natural to be skeptical about this claim, so can CBD be absorbed through your skin?

CBD Can Be Absorbed Through the Skin: Treat

Treat! CBD can be absorbed through the skin, but there’s a bit of nuance that customers should be aware of. Topical products, or products like creams that are placed on the skin, will not pass into your bloodstream. They can provide where they are placed (for example, rubbing a CBD lotion on sore muscles), but you won’t get the benefits that you would from inhaling or ingesting. 

However, if you look at transdermal products, the story changes. Transdermal means that a substance passes through the skin into the bloodstream. Transdermal CBD products are usually patches (like the PhenoPatch), and they deliver CBD into your bloodstream like ingesting or inhaling. 

Transdermal CBD products have an enormous advantage in absorption. Since they stay on your skin for hours, and the CBD will completely bypass your digestive system, your body has the time to absorb the vast majority of the CBD present. For example, the PhenoPatch has 80% bioavailability, the highest of PhenoLife’s CBD products. 

CBD can be absorbed through the skin, but if you’re looking to get the same effects as ingesting or inhaling CBD, make sure you get transdermal CBD products, not topical.

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Is Addicting

There’s a lot of people that still don’t know much about CBD or cannabis, which can lead to some confusion about how CBD impacts the body. A common question (or belief) is that CBD is addicting, so let’s take a look! Is CBD addicting?

CBD Is Addicting: Trick!

There is no research to indicate that CBD is addicting. In fact, it’s possible that CBD may help resolve addiction to other harmful substances. Regardless, you can rest assured knowing that CBD is not addictive, nor is there currently evidence of harm due to long-term use.

Conclusion

There’s a lot to learn about CBD, and a lot of easy ways to get confused about what CBD really does. To wrap up some our tricks and treats, we learned that CBD:

  • Doesn’t get you high
  • Exists in several forms and may vary in quality and purity from brand to brand
  • May help to manage anxiety
  • Might help soothe intense highs caused by THC
  • Can be absorbed through the skin via transdermal patches
  • Is not addicting

Choosing the right CBD product from a trustworthy brand is important. If you have questions about how to choose the right CBD product for you, then ask the experts at PhenoLife! We love answering questions from customers and making sure that they get a CBD solution that is a perfect fit for the health challenges they are facing. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

No Smoking Day | Smoking OUT – Inhale IN

Time to discover the real between smoking, vaping,

and inhaler.

“No Smoking Day” 2022 takes place on 9th March. As part of our vision as a company to increase awareness for a healthier life, we thought you may find this article interesting.

We’re no stranger to the dangers of smoking. Most smokers had their first cigarette under 18, likely due to peer pressure, and haven’t stopped since. The tingling, burning sensation in the throat felt by first-time smokers is the body reacting to foreign and dangerous substances.

Tobacco contains toxic chemicals like nicotine and cyanide, which are lethal in large doses. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are toxins found in coal, oils, and gasoline. PAHs are emitted the combustion process of lighting a cigarette, creating problems associated with secondhand smoke. Short-term effects of smoking might be bad breath, asthma and increased risk of illness and injury. Lung damage, stroke, cancer, gum disease, skin problems, pulmonary and heart disease are some of the debilitating long-term effects of chronic smoking.

stop smoking

E-Cigarettes – What you’re friends don’t know, but should

A common misconception is that e-cigarettes are a safe alternative to tobacco and similar to vapes. However, there is very little research on the long-term safety of E-cigarettes. A meta-analysis of 800 studies from the National Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine concluded that e-cigarettes emit several toxic substances such as acetaldehyde, acrolein, and formaldehyde.
These chemicals may cause asthma, coughing, and wheezing in young adults and increase the risk of disease in the long term. Secondhand smoke inhalation from E-cigarettes contains emissions found in engine exhaust and heavy metals. There is also no FDA evidence that using e-cigarettes can help individuals quit smoking.

Vaping – What’s in the ?

A lot of vape extracts contain additives like PG, VG, and artificial flavors to avoid the bitter taste of hemp. Propylene glycol (PG) is a petroleum-based, sugar found in a wide range of medical and beauty products, toiletries, and pet food. PG is colorless, odorless, and easily absorbs nicotine and flavoring, making it an ideal base for vape pens. () is the sweet-tasting, oil-based chemical responsible for creating big ‘clouds of smoke’ due to its density.
VG is smoother compared to PG, which leaves a gruff sensation on the throat. PG and VG are typically mixed in equal proportion and enhanced with nicotine, CBD, , and artificial flavorings for consistency and taste. PG and VG are relatively safe but long-term effects are unknown, and other problematic ingredients like Vitamin E acetate have been known to make their way into vape solutions. An alternative, healthier oil called MCT (coconut oil) can be used in place of PG and VG, but these products are harder to find.

Is CBD Safe to Smoke?

Inhalation is the most efficient way to consume CBD since it enters the lungs instantly and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream. CBD alone is not toxic, but lighting a CBD cigarette stimulates combustion and releases PAHs, leading to the same respiratory concerns as smoking tobacco. Vaping is a better alternative to CBD flowers and is also more cost-effective since only a small dose is needed for a powerful effect. But not all vape devices are created equal. The best way to avoid harsh or unfamiliar chemicals is to use 100% pure hemp-based inhalation devices. These contain no PG, VG, solvents, toxic metals, or additives. The CBD is absorbed just as fast without any burning or combustion process.

What is so special about the PhenoPen inhaler?

PhenoPen may be the best solution for those who are looking for a 100% pure hemp extract with zero additives, solvents, and chemicals. Our potent formula contains 75% total cannabinoids and is cost-effective compared to other methods.
How so? Our PhenoPen utilizes an inhalation-by-evaporation method, so unlike cigarettes, the PhenoPen does not require a combustion process. This means no harsh chemicals are released and more CBD is conserved since no burning takes place. The temperature is much lower and targeted to preserve the active ingredients over time and maximize bioavailability, the amount of CBD absorbed by the body. 
The CBD extract is purer, more durable, and economical since evaporation requires the use of less CBD in order to have the same effect.

Our highly concentrated solution is naturally hemp flavored and since CBD fumes are odorless, the device can be used in enclosed spaces. If you’re looking to finally kick the habit, anxietypaininsomnia, or simply unwind when you get home – this device is for you!

The Verdict

For those wanting to vape medicinal elements of cannabis and hemp, it’s worth looking out for CBD products that are made from 100% pure hemp extract. Avoid using nicotine, tobacco, or any delivery method that includes a burning process. Look out for any additives in your extract to make sure you’re the best CBD without any unwanted short or long-term effects.

How to use CBD for Anxiety

Anxiety is a serious mental health condition that negatively impacts physical and emotional wellbeing. It can be caused by different factors that include stress, environmental triggers, or genetics.

No matter the cause, Anxiety is not something to take lightly. It’s one of the most common mental illnesses in America. CBD can positively impact your anxiety symptoms because it contains compounds that naturally work with your endocannabinoid system. Learn more CBD today and how it can help you feel less anxious tomorrow!

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound that can be taken as an oil, a tincture, or edible. It’s extracted from plants and ’t contain the psychoactive chemical found in THC. CBD is known for helping to anxiety and stress levels.

It’s important to note that CBD does not have any intoxicating effects like other medications with psychoactive properties.

How does CBD work?

It’s essential to understand how CBD works with your endocannabinoid system. When you take CBD, it stimulates receptors throughout your body to create a sense of balance. This is called the “endocannabinoid system.” Your endocannabinoid system regulates things like mood and appetite. Many people think that CBD helps them feel less anxious because it balances their hormones.

What are the benefits of CBD for Anxiety?

There are many benefits of CBD for Anxiety. CBD has a calming effect on the body, which can help reduce feelings of nervousness, fear, and general unease. It can also help promote better sleep and alleviate pain.

Research has shown that CBD is as effective as traditional medicines when it comes to reducing anxiety symptoms. This is likely because it interacts with your endocannabinoid system–a system in your body that helps regulate mood and stress responses. The compounds in cannabis (both marijuana-derived CBD and hemp-derived CBD) naturally work with your endocannabinoid system to bring you relief from your anxious feelings.

Learn more about how CBD can be an effective treatment option for you!

Why choose CBD for Anxiety?

CBD is an all-natural substance that works with your endocannabinoid system to help it function more optimally. This can positively impact many aspects of your health, including a reduction in anxiety symptoms. CBD is always a good choice for people who don’t want the side effects of prescription medications that are often used to treat Anxiety. With CBD, you get relief from Anxiety and all the benefits of this hemp without the adverse side effects and risk of addiction that come with pharmaceuticals.

**Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or anxious for no reason; it’s a serious mental health condition that negatively impacts one’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

Dosage considerations

CBD can have a positive impact on your anxiety symptoms. But, the correct dosage is key to success.

The recommended starting dose for CBD is one drop of CBD tincture under the tongue, two times daily. Slowly work your way up to higher doses if necessary. For example, you can start with two drops three times a day and gradually increase as needed until you find the perfect amount that helps alleviate your anxiety symptoms.

CBD has no known side effects, but it’s essential to remember that everyone reacts differently to CBD.

Side effects and of CBD for Anxiety

Although CBD is generally considered safe, there are some potential side effects, including dry mouth and diarrhea. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid using CBD.

CBD can also with certain medications because it affects the levels of certain chemicals in your body. You must consult your doctor before making any changes to your current medication routine if you’re taking prescription drugs.

Another risk of using CBD for Anxiety is that it might not work for everyone. Some people find that CBD has a calming effect, while others might experience the opposite and feel anxious when they take it. The difference in how we all react to CBD is due to our endocannabinoid system and what needs it’s trying to meet.

Drug interaction with CBD

CBD is a natural supplement. It’s derived from the hemp plant and contains no psychoactive compounds. Although CBD won’t produce the same effects as traditional anxiety medications, it can help with anxiety symptoms.

However, there are still some drugs that may interact with CBD and cause negative side effects. Before taking any drug, speak to your doctor about what you plan to do. If you want to take for your anxiety, talk to your doctor about how it might affect your current medication or health condition.

CBD interacts in different ways with different drugs and supplements. For example, heart problems or diabetes could affect what kind of CBD product you take (or don’t take).

Although many people use CBD oil for Anxiety without problems, it’s essential to talk to a doctor before beginning a treatment regimen or adding any other supplements or medications into your routine.

Risk for addiction

Reports show that people who use CBD to manage their Anxiety are less likely to develop an addiction than those who take prescriptions like Xanax. However, there’s still a risk of developing an addiction to CBD because it comes from the cannabis plant. People with a history of addiction may want to consult their doctor before starting on any medication or supplement.

How should I consume CBD for Anxiety?

CBD can be consumed in many different ways. The most popular way is to use CBD oil tinctures taken orally with a dropper. You can also consume CBD through edibles, topicals, or . The effects will take hours to kick in when you consume CBD orally. However, when you use it topically or through vaping, it should take effect within minutes.

To find the best way to help relieve your anxiety symptoms, experiment with different consumption methods until you find what works best for you.

CBD Oil for Panic Attacks: Can It Help Treating This Disorder?

The incidence of anxiety disorders in today’s society is disturbing. In recent years, the number of books on anxiety has increased by 25%, and the illness affects roughly 284 million individuals worldwide.

It is known that panic attacks occur due to a specific serotonin receptor in the brain; however, these episodes can be caused by other factors as well. To completely control anxiety, doctors have been prescribing different medications that only treat the illness’s symptoms.

This is where oil for panic attacks may help those who suffer from this disorder.

What do you need to know about Panic Attacks?

A panic attack is an intense feeling of fear and anxiety that causes one to have a hard time breathing, shaking the body, excessive sweating, and other unpleasant side effects. These attacks occur due to the brain sending signals which provoke fear responses even though isn’t any danger at hand. The part of the brain that regulates such responses is called the amygdala, and it is responsible for sending signals that cause fear to take over.

In most cases, panic attacks are caused by a specific serotonin receptor in the brain known as 5-HT1A. It was found out that CBD oil for panic attacks works best when this receptor is activated.

Common Symptoms of Panic Attacks Include:

  • Feeling lightheaded, faint, or dizzy
  • Trouble breathing or hyperventilation
  • Choking sensation or smothering feeling
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea or stomach distress
  • Headache, tingling in the body, shortness of breath, turning red or hot flush

Other Specific Symptoms of Panic Attacks include:

Agoraphobia is the fear of being in places or situations from which escape might be difficult. It is a type of anxiety disorder that has a greater effect on women than men.

Anticipatory anxiety is the future fear of situations or events that may be likely to happen; however, this is chronic and does not seem like anxiety at all in some individuals.

Phobic avoidance is the most common anxiety disorder characterized by an intense fear of situations or events that avoid them. A person suffering from phobic avoidance feels anxious for any cause, and it can lead to extreme changes in lifestyle.

What Causes Panic Disorder?

Doctors believe that both hereditary and environmental factors contribute to panic disorder. They claim that certain people could trigger the episodes by exposing the patient to stressful situations or provoking negative emotions.

Some of the primary causes of panic disorders include; withdrawal from certain drugs, stressful life events like the death of a loved one, and major changes in lifestyle such as moving to another country.

How does CBD Oil for Panic Attacks Works?

CBD oil for panic attacks is helpful because it can target the serotonin receptors responsible for sending signals that provoke fear. The substances present in CBD oil also help regulate stress hormones and neurotransmitters that cause feelings of anxiety and fear.

According to a report, CBD oil for panic attacks activates 5-HT1A receptors which promote parasympathetic responses in the body. These are normally induced during relaxation or states. It also reduces the response of the brain’s hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis by decreasing the production of cortisol, a stress hormone that can trigger “ or flight” responses.

In addition to this, CBD oil reduces the insula and anterior cingulate gyrus activity, which are brain regions associated with panic disorder. It also activates CB1 receptors, which provide a calming effect on both the mind and body and reduce the release of histamines which trigger allergic responses.

How to Use CBD Oil for Panic Attacks?

CBD oil for panic attacks can be used in different ways. Using it as a suppository is highly recommended because this method allows the substance to target the part of the brain responsible for triggering fear and anxiety. The other methods include;

  • CBD capsules
  • CBD tincture
  • oil
  • CBD wax or dabs
  • CBD edibles or candies

Latest Studies on the Effects of CBD for Panic Attacks

A study published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics examined the effects of CBD on anxiety and compared its effects and those caused by – (tetrahydrocannabinol). The participants were divided into three groups. One group was given normal saline, another group was given a 2 mg dose of CBD, and the last group was given a higher dose of 10 mg of CBD.

The results showed that anxiety levels were reduced in all the participants, but those who received the higher dose reported being less anxious than those given a placebo. They found no difference between the two cannabinoids on comparing it with THC.

Another study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology revealed that CBD oil for panic attacks helps reduce anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort in public speaking. The study also concluded that CBD does not increase or decrease anxiety levels when given to people suffering from social anxiety disorder with panic attacks.

How to Use CBD for Panic Attacks

CBD Oil for Panic Attacks

CBD oil for panic attacks is helpful because it can target the serotonin receptors responsible for sending signals that provoke fear. The substances present in CBD oil also help regulate stress hormones and neurotransmitters that cause feelings of anxiety and fear.

CBD Capsules for Panic Attacks

Cannabidiol capsules and edibles (e.g., gummies) are taken via the mouth. They must pass through the digestive system before being released into circulation. As a result, CBD capsules and edibles might take up to 90 minutes.

CBD Vape for Panic Attacks

Cannabidiol vape oil can be used in a vaporizer. They are absorbed faster than CBD capsules and edibles, so they take effect sooner.

CBD for Panic Attacks

CBD oil dosage varies depending on the individual and their needs. Always consult your physician or a medical professional before trying CBD for the first time.

Here are some general guidelines:

  • Vaping CBD oil is preferable for treating anxiety, panic attacks, and other similar conditions.
  • The dosage of CBD vape oil starts from around 40 to 80 mg per day. However, it would be best to start with the smallest possible amount to assess how much your body can tolerate.
  • Capsules are usually available in 10 or 25 mg, and you can start with one or two capsules after breakfast.
  • CBD edibles such as candies, gummies, and other products are usually available in 5 to 20 mg dosage. It is advisable to start with a small amount of the edible and then increase the dosage if necessary.

CBD VS. Traditional Medicine for Panic Attacks

CBD oil for panic attacks is not a sedative and does not cause drowsiness. Unlike the traditional antidepressants, it does not interfere with your daily activities such as driving or working. Also, CBD oil does not have side effects usually associated with most common anti-anxiety medications. However, some users have reported mild side effects such as dry mouth or diarrhea.

Which Substances should you Avoid during Panic Attacks?

A panic attack is the result of an excessive release of stress hormones. These substances are released by your body to prepare itself for a “fight or flight” response, which you may have noticed during intense physical activity.

However, these hormones can be harmful when secreted in excess, so it is advisable to avoid caffeine, alcohol, and other stimulatory substances such as nicotine.

Conclusion

CBD oil for panic attacks is effective and has shown positive results in the intensity of anxiety and discomfort caused by this disorder. The potential side effects are mild, and CBD edibles like candies, gummies, and other products can be taken regularly without causing any problems.

Although CBD oil might not work for everyone, it can help treat panic attacks. The results vary depending on the person and the dosage used. Consult your physician before trying this method to understand which form is for you.

Huff, Puff and Inhale Your Worries Away…Can CBD Treat Anxiety? 

CBD and Anxiety- the plant that’s taking the mental health world by storm.

Cannabidiol, or CBD is a chemical compound naturally found in the Cannabis Sativa or hemp plant. CBD has been used for generations to symptoms of chronic illness, pain, anxiety and insomnia. , or tetrahydrocannabinol is CBD’s sister compound found in hemp that creates psychogenic effects or the feeling of being ‘high.’ Individuals concerned unwanted side effects or safety have experienced , from CBD interventions without any compromise on safety. Current research indicates CBD is quickly taking its place in the medical spotlight as a promising, safe to aid in the and prevention of various medical conditions.

So how does CBD actually work in our bodies? Attached to our cells are multiple receptors, chemical structures made up of proteins that receive and transmit various signals to stimulate reactions within the body. CBD binds to receptors CB1 and CB2 in our central and peripheral nervous system. While the exact mechanism is not fully understood, CBD interacts with receptor activity and can change serotonin signaling patterns.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain, composed of the amino acid tryptophan. Serotonin is responsible for mood regulation, sleep patterns, appetite and behavior changes. Low levels of serotonin are often found in individuals suffering from depression and anxiety. Typically, these mood disorders are treated with prescription SSRI’s- selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors like zoloft and prozac. With proper medical supervision, CBD is becoming an alternative option to help manage anxiety and mental disorders.

Studies involving mice indicated improvements in behavioral and physiological symptoms of anxiety when given CBD. Another 2011 on individuals with social anxiety disorder (SAD) found that adults given 400 mg of CBD experienced lower levels of anxiety compared to the group receiving a placebo. CBD, either on its own or combined with interventions such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and medication may be highly effective in treating generalized anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety induced insomnia.

 A recent study found CBD may have antipsychotic effects in schizophrenic adults, without the negative side effects of antipsychotic medications. More in-depth, controlled studies are needed to determine CBD’s ability to manage and treat mental disorders. In the meantime, discuss alternative options with your healthcare provider before adding or changing your current medication regimen.

Finding the correct dose may be a challenge. Experts claim that most commercial CBD products do not contain anywhere near the concentration necessary to achieve a clinical effect. The few dosage studies performed on adults with anxiety concluded that participants receiving a dose too high (600 mg) or too low (150 mg) did not feel therapeutic effects. The ‘sweet spot’ seemed to be approximately 300 mg, but the correct dosage will vary based on the individual and must be discussed with a doctor.

CBD is very safe and generally causes little to no side effects. However, some individuals may experience changes in weight/appetite, fatigue and diarrhea. CBD may also negatively interact with dietary supplements and medications such as blood thinners. Any medication with a ‘grapefruit’ label not be taken alongside CBD. CBD and grapefruit act on the same enzymes involving drug metabolism, and CBD may inhibit the medication’s absorption or effectiveness inside the body. Never cease medications you take regularly before consulting a doctor. Doing so may result in withdrawal, with symptoms including nausea, dizziness, irritability and brain fog.

How can you obtain CBD? Depends where you live! Hemp based CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are federally legal, but may be illegal in specific states. In some areas, CBD is allowed only to treat medical conditions like epilepsy and you would have to obtain a license from your physician to buy CBD oil. If you live in a cannabis friendly state, CBD can be purchased online or in cannabis dispensaries and clinics. 

Overall, studies so far may lack some credibility but are overall very promising. With supervision and a proper care plan, CBD may be an excellent supplement or alternative to treat anxiety. As research highlighting CBD’s health benefits continues to surface, we’re likely to see CBD become legalized and readily available in many more parts of the USA and across the globe.

Nature in Treating Anxiety

In the United States, are the most frequent mental illnesses, affecting an estimated 40 million adults over the age of 18 each year, or 18.1 percent of the total population. Anxiety disorders, which are widely accepted as highly curable, are only received by roughly 37% of those who suffer from them. Misdiagnosis, lack of access to health care, or antipathy to standard therapies may be to blame for this.

As anxiety problems become more prevalent, researchers, doctors, and patients alike are becoming increasingly interested in the medical use of cannabis to treat them. Anxiety has risen to the top of the list of permitted disorders as more states allow medicinal cannabis and other jurisdictions reexamine their medical usage policies.

That was made feasible by research into the endo system (ECS) and its function in homeostasis. Cannabis is being used by professionals as a first-line and adjuvant therapy in the treatment of anxiety in patients with varying degrees of efficacy, even though no specific dosage or timing guidelines exist.

Anxiety

It is both a physiological and emotional response to perceived threats. Anxiety is defined by a wide range of emotions and bodily responses, ranging from a racing heart to frantically fleeing from the source of the threat. For anxiety to be categorized as pathological, the emotional response must be excessive in terms of duration, frequency, or intensity.

A condition defined by excessive worry and emotions of fear, dread, and uneasiness that lasts six months or more,” begins the ICD-10 definition of a generalized anxiety disorder (code F41.1). 3 People who have anxiety will tell you it’s not as simple as just a pill.

For some people, anxiolytic symptoms are episodic while for others, they might be long-term. anxiety can cause physical symptoms like abdominal pain and headaches, and emotional reactions like being unable to get out of bed or limiting social interactions if left untreated.

Symptoms of anxiety

Phenomenons such as GAD and panic disorder can be classified into several diagnostic groups: SAD, SAD, specific phobias, PTSD, OCD, MDD, and persistent mood disorders. Major depressive disorders can also be classified into these diagnostic groups. It ’t matter what the diagnosis is; regardless of the severity and duration of the mental and physical symptoms, they are all the same.

Anatomy of Nerves: Neurotransmitters such as adrenaline and cortisol are released by the brain when it senses a threat, no matter how little. Constant exposure to these substances may create anxiety, difficulties concentrating, and even panic attacks in those who are already prone to these symptoms. Anxiety-induced weight gain, , and suicide are all possible side of chronic exposure to these hormones and neurotransmitters in the body and brain.

Inhalation and exhalation: During a manic episode, rapid, shallow breathing can be caused by the release of stress hormones in the body.

The cardiovascular system: Anxiety can cause heart palpitations, which can feel like a throbbing sensation in the chest. They are most commonly connected with panic episodes, but they can also occur with anxiety in general. Anxiety can cause a rise in blood pressure. Hypertension can develop if the condition is not addressed.

The body’s defense system: When stress hormones are released into the body regularly, the immune system is weakened, increasing the risk of bacterial and viral infections and resulting in more illnesses.

Anxiety Disorders and their Treatment

Anxiety, if left untreated, can cause major problems in one’s day-to-day activities, such as difficulty concentrating, completing daily duties, and forming or maintaining intimate connections. Anxiety can make it difficult for some people to leave the house or even get out of bed. It has been related to more problems like depression, suicide, and substance misuse as well as a physical illness if it is not addressed.

Anxiety disorders can be treated a variety of approaches, each tailored to the patient’s specific symptoms and degree of severity. Medicine (covered in detail below), therapy, complementary and alternative medicine, and transcranial magnetic stimulation are the most common techniques that have been shown successful (TMS).

Antidepressants and antianxiety medicines are often prescribed in conjunction with therapy or other supportive treatment for anxiety disorders. A treatment strategy should take into account all available options, including the use of cannabis.

Therapy

It is the most frequent and effective form of anxiety therapy, which focuses on identifying and modifying one’s thinking and behavioral patterns. Anxiety-controlling ability can only be learned through active participation by the patient in therapy. In the past, patients could only communicate with their therapists in person, but now, thanks to technological improvements, they may do so over the phone, video call, or even text messaging.

TMS

When medicine and other treatments have failed to alleviate the symptoms of depression, TMS may be a safe, effective, and non-invasive alternative. Electromagnetic coils that send pulses through the scalp create a magnetic field that induces a tiny electric current in a specific area of the brain. Treatment using TMS has approval.

Medication for treatment for anxiety

The use of anti-anxiety drugs for short- or long-term treatment of anxiety disorders can be done on its own or in conjunction with other approaches. Finding the drug that best treats the symptoms of a patient usually needs the patient’s patience and time.

One in six Americans, according to the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey from 2009 to 2010, takes an antidepressant or sedative medication. Using these medications, we may be able to learn more about how cannabis impacts our neural system. Anti-anxiety medications can be divided into four main types.

Selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are antidepressants that prevent some brain nerve cells from reabsorbing serotonin (citalopram, escitalopram, fluoxetine, paroxetine, and sertraline). Both venlafaxine and duloxetine (SNRIs) have a dual mode of action, which is an antidepressant. Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake into brain cells is their main goal of theirs.

One of the most used medications for treating anxiety is benzodiazepines, which include lorazepam, alprazolam, clonazepam, and diazepam. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GAB) is a neurotransmitter that has been shown to have anxiolytic (de-anxiety) properties. It has been found that three of the earliest antidepressant medications-amitriptyline, imipramine, and nortriptyline-increase norepinephrine and serotonin levels and block acetylcholine’s function.

Anxiety and the ECS

To keep things stable, no matter how much the external world changes, the ECS does a variety of things. Numerous biological processes, cognitive processes, and stress reactions, including anxiety, are influenced by the extracellular matrix (ECS). Antagonisms of the CB1 receptor and inhibitors of AEA hydrolysis both boost serotonin-producing neurons’ firing rates. It has an anxiolytic-like effect when serotonin neurotransmission is increased.

CBD has been demonstrated to reduce the activity of the enzyme that breaks down AEA, resulting in higher levels of AEA and increased serotonin activity, both of which have anxiolytic-like effects. The release of norepinephrine is stimulated by THC’s effect on cannabis receptors. With the addition of CBD and THC, an SNRI-like effect can be achieved.

Cannabis’ Biphasic Nature in Treating Anxiety

Anxiety is a typical side effect of medical cannabis use, and panic episodes of paranoia have been observed following high amounts of THC ingestion. Many patients use medicinal cannabis to relax, but anxiety is also a prevalent adverse consequence.

No wonder cannabis has both anxiogenic and anxiolytic properties when considering the role of the ECS in regulating a patient’s response to stimuli. Generally, modest doses have anxiolytic-like effects, but high doses have the opposite effect.

CBD Oil to Treat Anxiety Disorders

As a non-intoxicating cannabinoid with the potential to treat a wide range of symptoms and illnesses, Cannabis oil has recently claimed attracted considerable attention. Anxiety is the most common of these. When asked why they wanted to try CBD oil, more than 2,000 Americans said it helped with relaxation, anxiety, and better sleep.

Symptoms of social anxiety in patients with SAD were reduced in a small 2011 research that used cannabis. Participants’ brain scans revealed alterations in blood flow to brain areas connected to anxiety. Participants in this study felt better, and their brains reacted differently to worry as a result.

Cannabis oil has the potential to treat a wide range of anxiety disorders, including GAD. To be clear, the majority of the study to date has focused on the effects of acute CBD delivery, therefore further research into the long-term effects of chronic calming cannabis dose is needed before any form of clinical advice is made.

Conclusion

If you’re a health care practitioner, you must understand the basics of cannabis to confidently and effectively respond to patient questions. To avoid this, patients will seek advice and affirmation from others in their social circles as well as the internet and their local marijuana dispensary. When used as part of a customized treatment strategy, cannabis can be an effective first- or second-line treatment.

Is Cannabis a Potent Treatment for Anxiety Disorders?

The use of in managing various medical conditions such as anxiety is still in its infant stage, and more research is required. There is no clear data on how cannabis can manage anxiety disorders. Ideally, preliminary research also shows that cannabis may even worsen the symptoms of the condition and, in some circumstances, interfere with some types of treatment, such as exposure therapy. Thus you should use medical marijuana with caution.

But other research states that cannabis is a treatment for anxiety disorders. For looking to find out if cannabis is an alternative to reduce anxiety, using medical CBD is the most method. However, the usage of medical CBD should be closely monitored by a mental health professional and medical provider.

The popularity of medical cannabis makes many wonders about its effectiveness in managing various medical conditions.

What is Cannabis?

Cannabis is also referred to as marijuana and is made up of various cannabinoids, compounds in this plant. Multiple cannabinoids such as CBD and THC interact with multiple cannabinoid receptors in the brain and make up your endocannabinoid system. The system controls various physiological processes such as appetite, mood, pain, and .

Ideally, CBD is famous for its medicinal value and is most preferred as it does not have any psychoactive properties. On the other hand, THC is known for its psychoactive properties and will make you feel ”high”.

There are various species of cannabis, with the primary being Sativa and Indica. Cannabis Sativa has higher concentrations of THC compared to the cannabis Indica.

Cannabis Facts vs Fiction

Many misconceptions and false data about cannabis are available in the news or other published media. Some of the common fictions about cannabis primarily include:

  • Cannabis is a very harmful drug that can cause various medical conditions such as lung disease and psychosis.
  • Cannabis can lead to substance use
  • It is a very addictive drug

It is also important to note that there can be misleading data about the medical use of cannabis in the market. Medical cannabis substances are not regulated by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as they are considered dietary supplements. Thus, most manufacturers produce illegal products and make false medical claims about the products.

Some misconceptions about the use of medical marijuana in managing anxiety include:

  • There is enough evidence that medical marijuana is a potent treatment of anxiety.
  • There are minimal side effects of marijuana
  • Cannabis is safe to use in the long term
  • What Research Says About Cannabis

According to some preliminary research, THC is helpful in anxiety-inducing, and CBD is effective in anxiety.

People using cannabis for recreational use can lead to some health risks and increased chances of anxiety, which often occurs after withdrawal. According to other studies, patients who use medical cannabis have reported reducing anxiety symptoms.

However, it is essential to note that research is still inconclusive. It is pretty challenging to conclude the effectiveness of medical cannabis in managing anxiety and other conditions such as and PTSD.

Do you have any Marijuana Use ?

According to reports, there are positive benefits of using medical marijuana for managing various medical conditions. However, the studies are still not conclusive, and it is difficult to determine how the product can be used in managing anxiety. For instance, cannabis has both anxiety-reducing and anxiety-inducing effects. Thus it is correct to state that THC and CBD have opposing effects.

Thus it is difficult to determine whether medical cannabis effectively manages anxiety due to the controversial studies. According to a conducted in 2019 that examined 72 patients, it was found that CBD helps to reduce stress and various sleep concerns.

Legality of Cannabis

After discovering cannabis as a treatment modality, the government started to place various sanctions on the cultivation and sale of cannabis in 1937. Since there are multiple concerns about its psychoactive properties, it was placed under Schedule 1 drugs in 1970. The government still prohibits the use and sale of THC substances. However, state laws are legalizing the use of CBD products with a THC concentration of less than 0.3%.

Since there are federal regulations of various cannabis products in the United States, it is essential to check the different state and federal laws before purchasing any medical marijuana products. Remember that the research on the use of CBD in managing anxiety is still in its infancy stage, and more research is required.

Before purchasing any medical cannabis products, it is essential to contact your doctor. You need to inform them about the current medications you are taking since medical cannabis can interfere with the therapeutic effects of certain drugs. Some of the common factors that you should check before purchasing medical marijuana products from online stores primarily include:

  • The certificate of analysis created by an independent third-party laboratory; the COA should have important information about the potency of the product and how it was processed.
  • Only purchase from reputable brands; for instance, you can check various online reviews about the company’s credibility before making any purchase.
  • Also, ensure that you purchase CBD products with a THC concentration of less than 0.3%
  • Ensure that the brand does not make false medical claims about its product.

Conclusion

It is important to note that cognitive behavioral therapy is the best method of managing anxiety-related issues. Using marijuana without close supervision from a doctor can cause interference with other therapeutic interventions and may even worsen the symptoms. If you consider incorporating medical marijuana to manage anxiety symptoms, your doctor should review the history of substance use and any psychiatric issues.

You should not use medical marijuana as the only treatment option for anxiety-related conditions. If you are already using this product, ensure that you consult a mental health professional. It is also important to note that cannabis can have mild side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting, and dry mouth. Remember that medical marijuana can be used to manage other medical conditions such as chronic pain, arthritis, depression, and manage symptoms of cancer.

CBD vs. THC: What’s the Difference?

As the legal use of hemp and other cannabis products spreads, consumers are becoming more aware of their choices. Two natural chemicals found in plants of the Cannabis genus are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While both are cannabinoids, the two have very different effects on your body.

CBD vs THC: What’s the Difference?

are three types of Cannabis plants that are most commonly used medicinally or recreationally: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. Each plant has different concentrations of CBD and THC; in fact, cannabis grown for recreational use in the U.S. is typically very low in CBD and high in THC, whereas hemp used industrially is just the opposite.

CBD has been identified as a medicinal product with zero psychoactive compounds, while THC, on the other hand, is a psychoactive chemical known to induce euphoria. Both substances have been found to have very different effects on the human body given their differing compositions, which is why the debate of CBD vs. THC rages on.

CBD VS THC: Their Chemical Structures

CBD is antipsychotic, neuroprotective, and can reduce seizures. It counteracts the psychoactive effects of THC by blocking the pathway that allows for tetrahydrocannabinol to induce its psychomimetic effects in the . CBD oil has been used to treat chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety , muscle spasms, seizures, insomnia, depression, lack of appetite, among other things.

Ideally, CBD and THC have the same molecular structure; the only difference is that CBD has a hydroxyl group attached to its chain. THC’s hydroxyl group is replaced with a carboxylic acid ring which causes it to produce psychoactive effects that are more intense than those of CBD.

CBD and THC are similar to your body’s endocannabinoids, a type of neurotransmitter. These chemicals help regulate homeostasis in nearly every mammal. In humans, endocannabinoids affect appetite, mood, and pain. They’re also involved in regulating , growth and development, immune function, management and much more.

CBD VS THC Psychoactive Properties

THC is one of the most well-known cannabinoids because it has psychoactive properties. While, CBD is not a psychoactive .

These two chemicals depend on several factors, but one of the most important distinctions is that THC directly engages with the ’s CB1 receptors. Because it engages with the endocannabinoid system, THC has several effects on the body. The main chemical component in marijuana is delta-8 THC, which binds to receptors in the brain. It causes a sensation of euphoria. CBD poorly binds CB1 receptors. CBD does not bind at all to CB1 receptors.

CBD VS THC Legality

CBD oil is legal in some states, whereas THC products are not federally legal. To be legally sold in all 50 states, CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC by volume, according to the 2014 Farm Bill. This bill also legalized hemp growing under certain circumstances in the U.S., which can be a source of CBD.

Different states have different laws the legality of cannabis products with higher levels of THC. For example, in Massachusetts, any product that contains more than 0.3% trace amount of THC is considered marijuana and is therefore illegal to sell and possess. There are legal limits on how much THC can be contained in cannabis products in other states such as Colorado, Washington, and California.

CBD VS THC Medical Benefits

Although CBD and THC have been studied extensively, little research highlights their medical benefits. However, cannabis with higher levels of THC is effective in treating things like chronic pain, nausea, loss of appetite, and insomnia.

Thc can help relieve symptoms like pain, inflammation (like arthritis ), stress, depression, anxiety, addiction, and epilepsy. Many doctors prescribe thc to help with nausea after chemotherapy because it can reduce vomiting. It’s often used to increase appetite in people who’ve lost weight or are severely ill.

CBD is associated with several medical benefits, including treating seizures, inflammation, pain, anxiety disorders, addiction, and nausea. It has also been used to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy manage psychotic disorders, and it can even help treat severe mental conditions like schizophrenia.

The Food and Drug Administration ( FDA) approved Epidiolex, a CBD medication, in 2018 to treat seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy.

CBD VS THC Side Effects

The side effects of THC are often associated with feelings of euphoria, anxiety, and trouble concentrating. CBD is not known to have these adverse side effects. CBD is known to cause side effects such as dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, drowsiness, and fatigue.

Cannabis has been used medicinally for thousands of years. As modern research uncovers the benefits of cannabis, more people than ever before are turning to natural remedies like hemp and cannabis oils. As the legalization of cannabis spreads, more and more people will find relief from their ailments through its unique properties.

CBD VS THC Drug Testing

Both THC and CBD are fat-soluble. This means they are stored in the body’s fatty tissue, not water-soluble like other molecules. Over time, the body will continue to hold onto these cannabinoids regardless of whether or not a person is actively using cannabis products. Frequent use may make it difficult for people looking to pass drug tests.

It is important to note that not all drug tests have the capabilities to detect CBD. Drug testing laboratories must determine the concentration of THC metabolites in a person’s system. This is not possible for CBD due to its low concentration and non-psychoactive nature.

However, most drug tests will be able to detect traces of THC either in blood or urine. Frequent cannabis users may have high levels of THC in their system for a couple of weeks or more. This could result in a positive drug test even if the person has stopped using.

Conclusion

Both THC and CBD are valuable parts of the cannabis plant. They each hold medicinal benefits that can be helpful to people suffering from different medical conditions, but it is essential to understand the differences between the two compounds. The critical difference between THC and CBD is how each interacts with our bodies’ cannabinoid receptors. While THC directly engages these receptors, CBD does not. Some people prefer CBD oil to THC oil – they get all the benefits, with fewer side effects.

Are There Risks Associated With Vaping PG and VG?

Time to know what is PG and VG and what you should know about it

THC is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis and it can be mixed with vape liquids to be taken in a vaporizer. However, the vape pods which led to the are thought to have contained another additive called Vitamin E acetate. It’s unclear why this , which is clearly not safe for vaping, was put into the vape , although some have suggested that it’s to do with consistency. We’re taking a closer look at the primary ingredients in vape liquids; namely PG, VG, and MCT.

What is PG?
 
PG stands for Propylene Glycol and it belongs to the chemical class of additives but is non-intoxicating. PG, like VG, is considered to be sugar alcohol and is found in a range of everyday products. PG is a petroleum-based liquid that has no color or smell. It makes for good nicotine (or THC, CBD) carrier and is associated with the “throat hit” that many vapers enjoy. PG also carries any flavorings in the vape liquid well. PG is found in toothpaste, medical products, pet food, and beauty products.
 
For the time being, no one knows the effect of inhaling PG and certainly not the long-term effects as vaping has only been around for around a decade. Most people who vape PG have no issues with it, however, there’s no getting away from the fact that PG is a chemical, and is oil-based, and that is certainly a concern for some people.
 

What is VG?

VG stands for and is a chemical extracted from vegetable oils as the name suggests. VG is used in vape liquids to produce dense clouds of vapor and has a sweet taste. VG is also much thicker than PG, making the vape liquid appear more appealing. The other between PG and VG is that VG is smoother on the throat and some vapers even vape 100% VG-based liquids. PG and VG are usually mixed in a 1:1 ratio to make vape juice, and then the nicotine, THC, CBD, or flavorings are added into the mix.

Vaping products exist on the market that contains MCT, also known as coconut oil. MCT is rare to find in vaping products but it is available and some people consider it to be safer than PG or VG.

With that said, for those interested in , there are products that contain neither PG, VG, or MCT.
