How to Choose a Healthy CBD Product!

When selecting CBD products, make sure you’re getting the Healthiest.  That means finding a source that puts quality first in every step of the process.

How your CBD is grown, processed, and extracted affects how it works in your body.

Small family farms like Northeast Kingdom Hemp don’t compromise quality for profit.  They only make the Healthiest CBD oils.  Use a source you can trust. North East Kingdom Hemp is a family farm producing full-spectrum CBD oils and other hemp products in Barton, Vermont.  Four generations of family farmers – all born and raised in Vermont – lovingly tend all the hemp on our USDA Certified Organic farm.  We follow sustainable practices to grow pure and healthy hemp plants.  We do all the processing of our hemp, including small-batch supercritical CO2 extraction which preserves and captures the more than 80 active compounds naturally found in hemp.  The result is pure, great tasting, healthier CBD oils that are teeming with naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that are largely lost by more industrial extraction methods. Because we perform the entire process from planting to bottling right on the farm, we know that every step is done right to give you the purest and healthiest CBD oils.

Improving the Quality of Our Sleep

Given the problems with conventional soporifics, medical scientists have been exploring other ways to improve sleep by targeting the endocannabinoid system (ECS). As the primary homeostatic regulator of human physiology, the ECS plays a major role in the sleep-wake cycle and other circadian processes.

Italian scientist Vicenzo DiMarzo summarized the broad regulatory function of the endocannabinoid system in the phrase “Eat, sleep, relax, protect and forget.”

How we fall asleep, stay asleep, wake up, and remain awake is part of an internal biological process regulated by our circadian rhythms and our endocannabinoid system. Circadian rhythms govern a diverse array of actions in the body, including hormone production, heart rate, metabolism, and when to go to sleep and wake up.

The way we fall asleep, stay asleep, wake up, and remain awake is regulated by our circadian rhythms and our endocannabinoid system.

It’s as if we have an internal biochemical timer or clock that keeps track of our need for sleep, guides the body to sleep and then influences the intensity of sleep. This biological mechanism is affected by external forces such as travel, medication, food, drink, environment, stress and more.

Does your dog suffer from Osteoarthritis?

New Research Backs Canine Cannabis Use For Osteoarthritis. Forbes July 2020

Is your dog suffering from canine osteoarthritis? A new study suggests that CBD may help dogs with this painful arthritic condition. 

Canine osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition marked by pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility. And it can leave dogs lethargic, irritable and reluctant to play, run or jump. Unfortunately, the condition is all too common in dogs. Researchers estimate that it affects at least 20% of all dogs older than 1 year old, with higher risk for older dogs. 

The recent study, published in the journal PAIN, looked at whether different doses and formulations of CBD might help dogs suffering from osteoarthritis – and the results suggested that it could.   

Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine worked in collaboration with the CBD brand Medterra on the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. The 4 week study included 20 large dogs diagnosed with osteoarthritis who were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or one of three different CBD options. The dogs were evaluated before and after the regimen by both veterinarians and their owners on factors related to their mobility and pain. Details about the amount of CBD each dog was taking was kept from the owners and veterinarians so that it wouldn’t influence their evaluations. 

While the placebo group and the low CBD group showed no improvement, by the end of the one month period, the group of dogs who took higher doses of CBD or used CBD in a liposomal formulation saw significant improvement in their mobility and quality of life. 

“I openly admit that I was surprised at how quickly we saw such large results” says Matthew Halpert PhD, Faculty with the Department of Pathology and Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine and Senior Scientific Advisor for Medterra. “I would not have expected to see too much of anything in just one month.”

Halpert, who designed the experiment, explains that in the placebo and lower dose groups, the owners reported their dogs to be “just as miserable as before” and veterinarians didn’t see any improvement in the dog’s mobility. But in the two higher dose groups “almost every dog saw significant improvement in their conditions, in regards to reduced pain and increased ability to move around. And the dogs seemed happier and were able to do more.”

Even two weeks after the dogs stopped taking the CBD, those in the higher dose groups were still showing improvement. “This would tell us that the CBD was in fact addressing the underlying inflammatory issues” Halpert explains. “It wasn’t just masking the pain”

CBD For Your Face! Yes!

Whether you are struggling with acne, eczema, or psoriasis, or looking to firm and smooth fine lines, CBD oil has been found to be monumentally beneficial. Firstly, hemp oil has the perfectly balanced 3 – 1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential fatty acids. This is important because these fatty acids have been shown to smooth and firm the skin, improve the structure of skin cells, remove waste products from the body, and leave skin feeling silky and smooth. Additionally, CBD products are a great source of skin friendly Vitamins. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that promotes the growth of healthy skin tissue. Vitamin C is a building block of collagen, which helps skin elasticity, skin tone, and brightens the skin. Finally, the presence of Vitamin B6 which lends itself to skin firmness.

Curcumin and CBD for Pain Relief

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 20190722_143001.jpg

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in Tumeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and is a very strong anti-oxidant (much like CBD). Why is this important? Because inflammation is the main cause for almost every chronic, “Western” disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and various degenerative conditions, just to name a few. By combining CBD with Curcumin in a soft-gel form, people are finally finding relief from pain like never before!

Lowering Blood Pressure Naturally With CBD!

Thanks to a growing body of research into the health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids, a picture is beginning to emerge of the numerous biological processes that are influenced by these incredible compounds. Additionally, scientists are starting to realize that many of these processes follow daily cycles, which means that using cannabinoids at different times of the day or night can have a major impact on their efficiency. Accordingly, new research shows that taking CBD just before bed significantly increases its capacity to lower blood pressure and treat hypertension.

Harnessing The Body Clock

At the cutting edge of medicine is a relatively new and incredibly exciting modality called chronotherapy, which takes into account the body’s natural rhythms in order to ensure that medications are administered at the most appropriate time of the day. Also known as the circadian rhythm, the body’s daily ebb and flow is produced by the temporary activation of many different genes at various times of day, and controls everything from the sleep-wake cycle to blood pressure.

High blood pressure – also known as hypertension – is one of the most pressing health issues in Western societies, and is a major cause of heart attacks and strokes. Numerous studies have found CBD to be effective at lowering blood pressure when taken in the morning, although a newly published PhD thesis by Aidan Murray from the University of Guelph indicates that taking CBD at night is considerably more beneficial.

In Murray’s study, mice were given CBD at different times of the day, with results showing that those who received the cannabinoid just before going to sleep experienced the biggest reductions in blood pressure. In fact, when taken at night, CBD was found to lower blood pressure to the same degree as common pharmaceutical drugs for hypertension.

Please read the study by American Society of Clinical Investigation: A single dose of cannabidiol reduces blood pressure in healthy volunteers in a randomized crossover study.
