Proponents claim that CBD oil can treat a wide variety of health problems, including: Acne, Anorexia, Anxiety, Chronic pain, Depression, Drug addiction and withdrawal, Epilepsy, Glaucoma, High blood pressure, Insomnia, Muscle spasms, Parkinson's disease and more. These claims are not supported by the FDA and is not intended to treat any illness. Despite the growing popularity of CBD use, CBD oil remains sorely under-researched. As such, some of these claims are better supported by studies than others.
Studies on CBN have found that it may be a potent antibacterial agent. In lab settings, CBN was tested on strains of MRSA bacteria that are resistant to traditional antibiotics. Researchers found it to be a potent antibacterial agent against these resistant strains. Perhaps in the future, we will see CBN being used to fight off bacterial infections that our usual antibiotics can’t heal.
CBN may also be a powerful neuroprotectant. In one rodent study, researchers used CBN as a treatment for ALS and found that it was able to delay the onset of the condition. While human studies need to be done, this suggests that CBN may provide a powerful tool in the fight against ALS and other neurodegenerative conditions.
In rodent studies, CBN increased the amount of food that rat subjects ate, suggesting that it could be an effective appetite stimulant. Since some avoid THC (another well-known appetite stimulant) due to its intoxicating effects, CBN could potentially offer an alternative for those seeking the munchies without the high—but more research is needed.
CBN may also be helpful for those suffering from glaucoma. One study on rabbits found that CBN (as well as THC) reduces intraocular pressure—the biggest risk factor for glaucoma. Still, research is in early stages and CBN hasn’t been shown to be superior to other glaucoma medications. More research is needed to know if cannabinoids could ever effectively replace any traditional treatments for glaucoma.
CBN may also be a potent anti-inflammatory agent capable of helping those with rheumatoid arthritis. In one rodent study, CBN was shown to reduce arthritis. While more research needs to be done, this could end up being an incredible help to those suffering from this debilitating condition.
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid typically most abundant in low-THC and high-CBD cannabis strains, including hemp. Like THC, CBG reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBG, however, acts as a buffer to the psychoactivity of THC by working to alleviate the paranoia sometimes caused by higher levels of THC.
CBG works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells. Research has shown it also significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. Strains high in CBG will be beneficial treating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and cancer. These statements have not been approved by the FDA and is not intended to cure any disease.
THC has been the main focus cannabinoid for many ailments. Although THC is considered psychoactive and can cause the user to "feel high", it can be very beneficial to our health as well. THC can assist in subsiding pain relief, vomiting and nausea, protectant in brain cells, acts as an effective sleep aid, assists in ptsd, promotes brain growth, increases appetite, enhances senses, can be antibacterial, can act as an antioxidant, is anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant and more! These statements have not been approved by the FDA and is not meant to cure any diseases.
MCT oil is a supplement often added to smoothies, bulletproof coffee and salad dressings.
As the name suggests, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are linked to the way your body processes these fats.
MCT oil is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. These fats are also found in many other foods, such as palm oil and dairy products (1Trusted Source).
Four different types of MCTs exist, of which caprylic and capric acid are most commonly used for MCT oil. In some cases, these specific types have unique benefits.
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in the gut, preventing their absorption (2Trusted Source).
The charcoal's porous texture has a negative electrical charge, which causes it to attract positively charged molecules, such as toxins and gases. This helps it trap toxins and chemicals in the gut (2Trusted Source, 3).
Because activated charcoal is not absorbed by your body, it can carry the toxins bound to its surface out of your body in feces.
It's important to understand activated charcoal should be taken in small doses and recommended weekly intake or in cases such as: food poisoning, help flush kidneys, antibiotic poisoning, acetaminophen poising and more! Read more about how to add activated charcoal to your life.
For now, as research into terpenes continues to advance, there are already a handful of uses for terpenes. Most commonly, terpenes are found in essential oils, which are themselves often utilized in aromatherapy and other forms of holistic healing. Similarly, terpenes have also found their way into the fragrance industry, being used in perfumes, colognes, and other scented products.
And within the cannabis industry, terpenes are often added to concentrate cannabis products to produce new flavor combinations, to enhance the natural scent and flavor profiles of a strain, or to replace terpenes that may have been lost during the plant extraction process. For example, with full-spectrum cannabis extracts, producers strive to preserve the full cannabinoid and terpene contents of the raw cannabis plant without altering them.
An additional factor contributing to the entourage effect could also be that cannabinoids and terpenes hit different targets, and the combined activity at those targets (receptors or other cellular pathways) results in a better outcome. For example, multiple molecules attack inflammation at multiple sources of said inflammation. It’s also plausible that terpenes could enhance our bodies’ ability to absorb or process cannabinoids.
Salmon Oil For Pet Tincture
Fish oil has been found to reduce the heart’s vulnerability to developing an irregular heart rhythm, called atrial fibrillation. Additionally, it can act as an anti-coagulant and prevent blood clots from forming in cats with heart disease. Giving fish oil to pets with allergies may reduce their itching by decreasing their body’s production or release of potent stimulators of inflammation, called cytokines. In failing kidneys, fish oil may lower elevated blood pressure, decrease undesired protein loss in urine, and reduce the production of pro-inflammatory substances that aggravate kidneys. Fish oil decreases the production of potent prostaglandins that stimulate inflammation in the joints. Arthritic dogs and cats given fish oil are more comfortable and agile than those not supplemented.
