Just want to sleep better? One study reported by The Permanente Journal reveals that it may help with sleep, especially given how anxiety and pain can keep people up at night. While another study suggests it may have a more direct effect by interacting with receptors and transmitters in the brain that control the way in which the sleep cycle works. Ongoing research is vital to completely understand how effective CBD hemp oil is at helping people get to sleep and stay asleep but there are plenty of good reasons to be hopeful.

People are turning to CBD oil and other hemp-related products for a variety of reasons including as a sleep aid. The consensus seems to be that for some people, it definitely does help. This is great news for people looking to make sleep easier without resorting to short-term chemical solutions. At the very least, it’s an alternative that just may work and possibly improve your wellbeing in other ways as well.


Millions of people in the United States suffer with being overweight. One report states “that addressing the obesity epidemic remains imperative for ensuring the health of the nation”. Obesity-related conditions include type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease and a few types of cancer and are some of the leading causes of early and preventable death.

The human body produces its own natural cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids react with two types of receptors in the body called the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB2 receptors are found in many fat cells and regulate how they burn or preserve fat. CBD appears to help in breaking down the “bad” white fat cells, into the more desirable, brown fat cells. White fat cells are stubborn fat cells which accumulate around organs and prevent them from working properly. The breakdown of brown fat cells is more rapid and burn off more energy, leading to a loss of calories, which aids in weight loss.

CBD also interacts with CB1 receptors which regulate appetite. Unlike THC, which stimulates these receptors to make people feel hungry, CBD blocks them off, suppressing the urge to eat and preventing overeating in some people.


Anxiety disorders are the single most common type of illness in the United States, affecting roughly 18.1 percent of all adults.  Symptoms of anxiety and depression often go hand-in-hand. Some of the different types of anxiety disorders are:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) or Social Phobias
  • Panic Disorder

Treatment for most chronic anxiety is generally a prescription for medications like serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which have been known to cause nausea and sexual dysfunction. People with obsessive compulsive disorder, or OCD, are often treated with tricyclics, which tend to cause drowsiness, dizziness, and weight gain. Psychoactive drugs called Benzodiazepines have also been used to treat anxiety but have become tarnished for being highly addictive.

There are a number of at home remedies to help alleviate or decrease the physical symptoms of different types of anxiety disorders. The following are just a few of the simple effective ways that can help people cope with anxiety.

  • Consume less caffeine
  • Exercise
  • Breathing and Yoga
  • Balanced, nutritious diet
  • Regular sleep schedule
  • Avoid alcohol and other recreational drugs


As of January 1st, 2018, CBD was officially removed from the list of banned substances by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency). An important move as it now provides athletes with a natural solution for the relief they seek, as opposed to using effective but additive alternatives (i.e., opiates).

Athletes across the globe are turning to CBD to help them fight the aches and pains associated with overexertion or constant repetitive motion.  An article published by Medical News Today, sites a study performed on mice and rats that found CBD significantly reduced the effects of pain and chronic inflammation. The fact that some of the world’s greatest athletes use CBD to recover post-exertion, is now garnering interest by individuals and hobbyists who take part in some sort of physical endeavor on a less intensive level.

Bliss Molecule

Studies have shown that a natural cannabinoid named anandamide, facilitates our feelings of happiness. This so called “bliss molecule” is broken down by an enzyme called FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase) and stops the sensation of happiness. CBD inhibits FAAH, thus allowing the anandamide to stay in the body longer, facilitating our feelings of joy and contentment.

We have all heard of the mind/body connection but what does that really mean? Well one type is when your body responds to the way you think, feel or act. When you are stressed, anxious, sad, or depressed your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something is wrong. For instance, your blood pressure may elevate, or you might have a stomach ache. CBD works with the ECS to help balance and maintain significant levels of “the feel good” chemical thereby accelerating the feelings of wellbeing.


Worried about the potentially dangerous and controversial ingredients that typical sunscreens contain? Then CBD oil might just be what you are looking for. Sunscreen formulas that contain CBD are a more natural choice. Did you know CBD oil has a sun protection factor of 6 which makes it the ideal additive to sunscreens. CBD hemp oil contains essential fatty acids and amino acids that help protect against the sun’s harmful rays. With naturally occurring vitamins, like Vitamin E and other antioxidants it helps fight free radicals and repair damaged skin from over exposure to intense light.

Did you know that 1 out of 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 70?  That’s pretty alarming, to say the least. The best way to protect yourself from skin cancer is prevention. The Mayo Clinic recommends some easy ways you can decrease your chances of hearing those dreaded words… “its cancer”.

  • Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
  • Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs.
  • Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
  • Wear sunglasses that wrap around and block both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, and both UVA and UVB (broad spectrum) protection.
  • Avoid indoor tanning.

If you already have a burn, then using CBD hemp oil may help to keep it clean. When skin is damaged, it is critical to keep the area clean in order to prevent bacteria from penetrating the weakened skin, as this could cause an infection. Cannabidiol has been shown to have antimicrobial qualities, and  particularly potent against MRSA, which is one of the most dangerous pathogens known to affect wounds. Using CBD oil on your wounds can keep them from becoming infected while also helping to reduce swelling and pain associated with burns.

Our body’s largest organ, the skin, has its own endocannabinoid system and CBD interacts with the ECS to promote balance and homeostasis within this critical organ, responsible for creating a protective barrier against harmful environmental elements.

Many people undergoing radiation treatments for various medical conditions often suffer from burn-like irritations. Dryness, itching and peeling skin can be an annoyance or a serious problem. CBD oil aids the body, through the Endocannabinoid System, in protecting and repairing skin. 


What exactly is the ECS or Endocannabinoid System? In the early 1990’s scientists began discovering this little-known system and the role that cannabis plays. Cannabis mimics, the natural cannabis-like molecules, called endocannabinoids, produced naturally by the human body. The ECS’s main function is to maintain bodily homeostasis or bodily harmony in response to changes in the environment.

It was first assumed that  endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the nerves and brain, however, it was later found that the receptors are present throughout the body, which includes our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, With further research we now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of  many physiological and psychological processes like pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, reproductive function and immune function.

The three components of the endocannabinoid system are:

Cannabinoid receptors found on the surface of cells

Endocannabinoids are small molecules that activate cannabinoid receptors

Metabolic enzymes break down endocannabinoids after they are used

These can be found within almost every major bodily system. When something occurs to upset the system on a cellular level, then these three components are enlisted to biologically return the body to its balanced state.  CBD interacts with numerous and different receptors of the ECS in the brain, than our body’s own endocannabinoids, and therefore have specific and distinct effects. As mentioned earlier it also slows the breakdown of the “feel good” molecule which may be why it helps with anxiety.
