CBD and Inflammation

One of my favorite properties about CBD is it’s anti-inflammatory effect on the body. While inflammation is apart of the body’s immune response, it isn’t always perfect. It can be beneficial when, for example, your knee sustains a blow and tissues need care and protection. However, sometimes, inflammation can persist longer than necessary, causing more harm than benefit. People with chronic inflammation are susceptible to asthma, tuberculosis, arthritis, Chrones, various types of cancer, and in some cases Alzheimer’s. Additionally, our environment can be causing inflammation in ways we don’t even realize. Are you eating an all organic diet? Are you breathing in factory fumes or car exhaust on a daily basis? Do you drink a lot of soda? Because of these exposures, inflammation is likely running rampant in your body, and more importantly, your brain. Luckily for us, CBD can counteract this effect.

We have a variety of pain management topicals available for you to sample for free.

CBD 101 — What is CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis and hemp plants.  As well as CBD, the Cannabis plant contains between 70- 100 other cannabinoids.  CBD interacts with your body through your endocannabinoid system (ECS) the vast system that controls your body’s general state of balance or homeostasis.  The ECS regulates everything from mood, memory, the immune system, pain signaling and inflammatory response.  CBD has shown to help support functions such as appetite, mood, immune response, pain, sleep and many many more.  By supporting your ECS through CBD, we are returning our bodies back to it’s optimal state. 

Come visit us at 12 Rogers Street Friday, Saturday, Sunday 11-4 and try some free samples of CBD oil and topicals.  Free samples, free consultations by CBD certified specialists.  978-985-4592 Please support all local business! We need you!

Free Samples of CBD Pain Management/Anti-Inflammatory Topicals

12 Rogers Street Gloucester 978-985-4592

We tend to get a lot of questions regarding the most effective way to manage pain. Is a topical treatment better than supplementing with the oil? Is there a certain amount I should be using? How long will it take to kick in?

Firstly we would like to note that the best way to treat pain is typically by attacking it from both sides (an external application as well as an internal application). This can be achieved by pairing a low to moderate dose of oil under the tongue in addition to applying a pain cream to the affected area. The benefits of using both oil and cream is that you will need much less of each product to achieve pain relief. Additionally, when using the oil, it enhances the effect of the topical treatment so as to make it more potent, and last much longer.

That being said, it is possible to achieve positive results by simply supplementing one or the other (the oil or the cream). The rule of thumb here is that a topical treatment will be more effective in the extremities, such as the hands, wrists, feet, knees, neck and shoulders. Alternatively, a pain cream will be less effective for pain management in the core of the body, such as the chest, gut, back, and pelvis. Therefore, for the core, supplementing the oil under the tongue would be most effective. When using just one of these methods, it is important to remember that the CBD may need to build up in your system for a few days before you start to feel relief. This means that consistency in dosing is key. Start with a moderate amount, and work your way down.

We are currently featuring several different pain creams as FREE SAMPLES, so please come down and try them out. You literally have nothing to lose!!!

Can CBD Help with Depression?

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that depression effects 300 million or more than 4% of us, making it the planets #1 source of disability. And that count it probably significantly understated given the stigma surrounding this illness. As with anxiety disorders, CBD has become a source of hope.

Recent research points to some potentially anti-depressant effects of the compound- and a link between depression and low endocannabinoid levels. One study showed that CBD can boost levels of the body’s natural “bliss” molecule anadamide. Another connected CBD to higher levels of serotonin in the brain; this enzyme is known to have an anti-depressant effect. Others have suggested positive impacts to mood-improving processes in the hippocampus, and to CBD’s value in reducing neuron damage and brain inflammation.

In addition to clinical trials, anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD can be effective either in conjunction with or in place of traditional anti-depressant treatment. A survey of 2400 HelloMD community members, for instance, found that 80% of those polled found CBD extremely effective at treating their illness and 42% stopped using traditional medicines in favor of using CBD. While this data is promising, it can’t be taken as anything close to proof. Depression is an extremely complex illness, and more research is needed.
