Another cannabinoid that will not get you high...with laser specific healing capacities. As with CBD, it is anti-inflammatory, a natural analgesic, antibacterial, anti-convulsive, a brain cell stimulant, antidepressant, anti-proliferative, aids with sleep and tends to increase appetite.
Look for full spectrum hemp extracts with a higher profile of CBG to treat:
Does CBG Have Any Side Effects?CBG does not have any side effects when taken in therapeutic doses. The key words there are “therapeutic doses.” You can experience negative side effects if you consume too much of any substance…even water.
Thankfully, CBG only becomes a problem when taken in excess of 300 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.
For a 180-pound person, that means they would have to consume 54,000 milligrams of CBG for it to become dangerous. To put that in perspective, a 180-pound person suffering from severe pain should take, at the most, 25 milligrams to feel relief.
How CBD Can Helps Sleep Disorders
If you are part of the 80% of Americans who say they have trouble getting to sleep at least weekly, you may want to try CBD as a sleep aid. Instead of getting a prescription for potentially dangerous or addictive prescription drugs, try using this natural supplement known to help many users with sleeping. Cannabidiol is found in both cannabis and hemp. The compound does not have any psychoactive effects and, instead, is used by many to cope with pain and other health issues.
Common Sleep Disorders
Many people are affected by sleep disorders. One of the most common disorders is insomnia, which refers to difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. Insomnia can be caused by physical or mental reasons, and even by lifestyle reasons such as an inconsistent work schedule. Sleepwalking and sleep terrors are other disorders that can affect sleep, and both have a wide range of causes. Sleepwalking refers to physically moving through your house while asleep, and sleep terrors are characterized by screaming and short, violent bursts of terror that differ from nightmares. The benefits of CBD for sleep disorders are mostly linked to the calming effects of CBD. CBD can reduce anxiety and pain for many users, two major sleep deterrents.
CBD as a Restful Sleep Supplement
One of CBDâs appeals is how many ways there are to take the supplement. From edible candies to oils and tinctures, there are appealing options for everyone. In one survey, 60% of users reported taking CBD to help with sleep. Some studies suggest that cannabinoids can help regulate the sleep cycle. The CBD Therapy strain is designed specifically to help with difficulties sleeping since this is one of the most common uses for the CBD compound. To find the right dosage, start off with a standard dose, and adjust as needed according to the effects you experience. Studies suggest a a high dose is beneficial for getting the full effects as a sleep aid.
When To Take CBD for Sleep
The best time to take CBD oil to help with sleep is typically between 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime. Putting drops under the tongue is one of the fastest ways to get the effects of CBD, so this is a good choice for administering the oil. If you would prefer a slower release of the compound, the drops can also be mixed into food. Pre-measured capsules are another ingestion method, but these are slower to take effect, so should be taken hours before you plan to sleep.
After reading this industry article, click here, I began thinking what I would like to see the FDA do for our CBD industry. My wish list has to do with labeling, as I hear about other products, being cheaper, not working at all or only a little, and I see CBD bottles people bring to our store. So here goes...1)Many do not contain labels that clearly say what is in the bottle. I'm talking about what is the CBD form, is it Full Spectrum, Isolate, Distillate or Blend? 2)Next, many bottles do not say how many milligrams of CBD is contained in bottle. I've even seen in the number of servings, errors that do not calculate correctly with the total number of milligrams in the bottle! 3)Thirdly, country of origin needs be stated. I'd personally like to know the State, because lets face it some USA States have a multitude of toxic environmental concerns. 4)None of the bottles I have examined contain a traceable batch number. Every one of our CBD Nutritional Hemp Extracts has always had a batch number, so one may download the 3rd party lab analysis results from this website. Click Here
5)And number 5 if the product is a Hemp Blend, I would like to see the % or milligrams of each type of Hemp product, ie; Full Spectrum, Isolate, Distillate. I don't like that companies are able to put as little as 1 drop of a Full Spectrum Hemp product and call it Full Spectrum, when it contains 99%+ isolate. And worse they charge a true Full Spectrum price for an isolate hemp product, which is a much cheaper hemp product. Of course I could go on and on, but I'll step off the soap box for now.
Research points toward cannabinoids having an adaptive, immunomodulating effect, rather than just suppressing immune activity.
Some studies suggest that cannabinoids like THC and CBD are immunosuppressant, which can explain the relief experienced by medical cannabis users with autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation.
It gets even more complicated when we consider that the effects of cannabis are mediated primarily by the endocannabinoid system, which scientists believe interacts with all biological activity, including our immune system.
Endocannabinoids are produced on demand, travelling backwards across chemical synapses and modulating cell activity. This partly explains why the ECS has been termed a homeostatic regulator – continually working to maintain a state of biological balance.
The ECS regulates a plethora of physiological processes, including immune function and inflammation. Both CB1 and CB2 receptors can be found on immune cells, although there are between 10-100 times more CB2 receptors than CB1. Endocannabinoids act upon immune cells directly through the CB2 receptor.
CB2 receptor activation creates an anti-inflammatory effect and is therefore a therapeutic target for autoimmune disorders and neurodegenerative disease.1 However, any ECS immunosuppressant activity is thought to be transient, and can be overridden when necessary in the presence of infection.2
CANNABIS AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEMWhen we talk about cannabis, we’re dealing with upwards of 400 different molecules. These include the more frequently studied cannabinoids like THC and CBD, more than 100 other minor cannabinoids, dozens of terpenes, and a host of flavonoids – the combination of which varies according to the cannabis strain.
CBD, despite little binding affinity with cannabinoid receptors, is also considered to be immunosuppressant, reducing cytokine production3 and inhibiting T-cell function4.
But that’s only part of the story. A new wave of research and mounting anecdotal evidence points towards cannabinoids having an adaptive, immunomodulating effect, rather than just suppressing immune activity.

Celebrities & CBD
Interestingly how people will follow others who are socially known rather than family members or even best friends who recommend something. I want for everyone to feel comfortable with your decision to try CBD, so I am including this list of Hollywood celebs who are endorsing CBD to entice you a little more.;-)
