CBD a NEW ERA
After trying a few drops from CBD oil, I instantly felt the effect. At this moment I was a bit stressed, tired and with no will of working. In the next minutes after holding the oil under my thong, I started to feel calmer and a peaceful state of mind quickly embraced me. The problems were taking distance and I was feeling less tired and more focused. I continued to work for hours and I was very happy with the result as before taking the CBD oil I was just thinking to watch a movie and go to sleep.
After 1 month of taking CBD oil daily, I could definitely feel the benefits at mind and body level. I took it for 2 months as a treatment. Now I only take it when I feel i need it. Seeing this great effect on me I started research in the cannabinoids world willing to get more information about the benefits of it and to spread it with my friends and readers. Going deeper in the research I saw that, with the 21-century problems and all the pollution we have to endure around us, CBD might be one of the answers to help us survive in this environment.

First to understand what is CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s not psychoactive.
The Legal Situation of Hemp, Marijuana, and CBD in the EU in 2019
Unlike THC, CBD is legal in Europe (with the exception of Slovakia), and its therapeutic effects have been demonstrated by scientists around the world in recent years. As such, many farmers saw an opportunity to make considerably more money through CBD than by growing hemp only for seeds and fiber. According to EU law, CBD products cannot contain more than 0.2% THC.
The differences between the Cannabis, Hemp, and CBD oils
Cannabis Oil – can contain high concentrations of THC or CBD
Hemp Oil – comes from the seeds of hemp plant. Its also called Hemp Seed Oil
It contains a minuscule amount of CBD.
Promotes healthy skin, ingested orally, reductions in skin dryness and itchiness.
It has many essential nutrients like protein, vitamin E, magnesium that is responsible for insulin resistance, heart disease, osteoporosis and Omega 3 that improves our mood.
CBD Oil – made from the whole plant and flowers of the hemp plant
Balancing the body endocannabinoid system that exists in all body’s physiological systems.
Balancing the levels of serotonin that is responsible for changes in mood.
Supporting a positive state of mental health.
Known for its ability to improve and increase sleep.
Why it’s CBD important?
If you live in urban cities you are INFLAMED. We are assaulted by:
- Environmental Toxins (Herbicides, Insecticides, Heavy Metals)
- Chronic Biological Infections (Bacteria, Viruses, Fungus, Molds)
- Inflammatory Diet / “leaky gut”
All off this lead to Immune and Brain Inflammation.
Immune Inflammation is responsible for:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Rheumatoid/ Arthritis / Lupus / Thyroid
- Fibromyalgia / MS
- Skin / Psoriasis / Eczema
- Chronic Infections
Brain Inflammation is responsible for :
- Brain Fog / Migraine/ Epilepsy
- Anxiety / PTSD
- ADD/ ADHD/ Autism
Because CBD has anti-inflammatory effects is able to help us with the health conditions and various chronic diseases mentioned above.
Health is a balance between opposites – YIN YANG
What CBD is doing? Balancing all body systems.
Cell surface are cover with CBD receptors (studies show since 1992). When CBD bind to this cell it sends a message to it. The message goes to the Nucleus, to the chromosomes (our software) and it transmits the homeostasis the information (what was in the beginning).
Are more CBD receptors in our body than any kind of receptors.
- Central Nervous System
- Cardio Vascular ( Immune Cells)
- Bone Marrow ( Cells are manufactured)
- Immune organs ( Intestines, Spleen, Bladder)
- Lymph System
We also make our own cannabinoids, the Anandamide (https://www.royalqueenseeds.com/blog-what-is-anandamide-and-what-role-does-it-play-in-our-bodies-n507) also called “bliss molecule” and is produced when we meditate. The second one is 2AG molecule and is associate with “runners high”. That moment when you pass the tiredness when you run and a fulfill sentiment is taking over.
Extensive scientific research and mounting anecdotal accounts from patients and physicians highlight CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of maladies, including (but not limited to):
- Autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis)
- Neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury)
- Metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity)
- Neuropsychiatric illness (autism, ADHD, PTSD, alcoholism)
- Gut disorders (colitis, Crohn’s)
- Cardiovascular dysfunction (atherosclerosis, arrhythmia)
- Skin disease (acne, dermatitis, psoriasis)
Benefits of CBD one by one :
1.Insomnia – CBD makes us utilize the serotonin in the brain depend on the needs. Serotonin helps to produce naturally MELOTONINE that helps you get to sleep.
2.Pain and Inflammation – The frontal-limbic distribution of CB receptors in the brain suggests that cannabis may preferentially target the affective qualities of pain [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6222489/). Furthermore, cannabis may improve neuropathic pain reducing the low-grade inflammation consistent in the pathology. Considering as a whole the problems of chronic neuropathic pain syndromes, which has a poorly understood pathogenesis, a complexity of symptoms and the lack of optimal treatment, the potential of a therapeutic strategy centered on cannabinoid system appears really quite attractive.
3. Anxiety and Depression – anxiety is a condition characterized by restlessness and excessive worry. Those of us who are dealing with it have a hard time making decisions, speaking in public, tolerating criticism, or asking the boss for a raise.
From social anxiety and panic disorder to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and agoraphobia, anxiety comes in many ‘shapes and sizes.’
But regardless of the type of anxiety, you might be dealing with, a dose of cannabidiol can help you cope with the unpleasant symptoms associated with this condition.
By bringing your serotonin to normal levels, CBD-based supplements can significantly reduce the symptoms of anxiety.
CBD can alleviate PMS symptoms by interacting with the receptors in our endocannabinoid system.
Based on the findings from several studies, CBD may provide relief for those suffering from hormonal imbalance. In one study investigating the effects of CBD on plasma prolactin, growth hormones, and cortisol, researchers found that CBD helped to regulate the secretion of cortisol, the stress activating hormone.
CBD can maintain cholesterol levels.
5. Promotes detoxification – All around us toxins surround us. In the air we breathe from pollution, in the food we eat from pesticides or processed food, and even in beauty products we use every day. Many people will go through a cleanse or diet detox to help fight against the toxins trying to damage the inside of the body, but CBD oil may be a better option for detoxing.
While some detoxing regimens, such as diets, may just give your body a break from excessive toxins and let your body catch up, CBD oil may actually be able to help destroy the toxins. Studies have shown that cannabidiol (CBD) is a potent antioxidant leading scientist to believe that it can help with oxidative neurological disorders.
CBD oil goes a step further than diets and smoothies and has shown in studies to reduce cell death. Because of CBD hemp oil’s protective effects in the body, researchers believe that it detoxifies at a higher degree.
6. Helps with Stress, PTSD, Social anxiety disorder, Obsessive-compulsive disorder.
CBD is thought to cause pleasure hormones in the body to be released. These particular hormones are incredibly powerful, as they are responsible for inducing feelings of calm, reducing stress, and eliminating underlying anxiety.
The hippocampus is the part of our brain that is basically an emotional control center. CBD interacts with receptors in the hippocampus to stimulate positive emotions and the necessary chemicals to provide us with therapeutic comfort.
A daily dose of CBD oil has been found to reduce cognitive impairment.
7. Reduce acne: CBD oil may help reduce various types of acne thanks to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum. Sebum is a waxy, oily substance the skin makes. CBD oil as I mentioned above also has anti-inflammatory properties.
8.Improve heart health :
Cannabinoids have been shown to sustain a direct effect upon the vascular system. Here, CBD is capable of inducing vasorelaxation, or a reduction in the tension of blood vessel walls.
One of the cardiovascular benefits of CBD is its ability to reduce resting blood pressure, as well as blood pressure when faced with stressful stimuli.
High cholesterol is one of the many conditions that could be treated by CBD-rich strains. When you purchase a high-quality CBD oil, you also increase the efficacy of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. A study* by Dr. Ivan Tancevski et al., published in Cell Metabolism in 2014, determined that Omega-6 fatty acids reduce LDL cholesterol levels.
9. Promote bone growth and healing:
Due to our skeletal endocannabinoid system, CBD is able to send signals to our bone cells. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle while your bones are healing so they can heal properly. CBD helps with bone growth to strengthen the bone by triggering osteoblasts.
Once you get older your bone will begin to deteriorate causing your bones to become brittle, making it easier to fracture. Old age can also come with bone diseases that create a block in bone growth. Getting through life with a bone disease like osteoporosis typically means relying on medications to provide relief. Prescription medications can come with harsh side effects that make you feel even worse. Turning to a natural cannabinoid will eliminate having to take medications that provide poor side effects. Research shows a direct correlation between CBD and bone growth.
In one of the most recent studies, results show that CBD alone specifically helps with healing bone fractures. Tel Aviv University specifically examined bone health with isolated CBD or a combination with THC; a group of mice was administered CBD or THC and CBD. Results concluded that isolated CBD has better effects than when the two cannabinoids were in combination.
10. May lower diabetes risk
Chronic inflammation has long been known to play a key role in the development of insulin resistance and therefore type 2 diabetes. The researchers believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD could treat this inflammation and therefore improve the body’s metabolism.
ISA Scientific, an Israeli company, recently signed a worldwide collaboration and licensing deal to establish therapies containing CBD.
In a statement, ISA Scientific Chief Executive Officer Mark J. Rosenfeld said: “The licensing agreement is very well timed because our Phase 1 clinical trials on dosing and safety are now underway in Israel, and arrangements for Phase 2 trials on treating diabetes and chronic pain are in process.”
“Unlike insulin and other existing medications for diabetes, CBD may actually suppress, reverse and perhaps cure the disease,” Rosenfeld added.
11. Calm childhood epilepsy
According to Dr. Angel Hernandez, of the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich., the results of the study he made prove that pharmaceutical-grade CBD helps suppress seizures and “increases our options to treat many of these patients with very, very difficult-to-control epilepsies.” Hernandez is a division chief of neuroscience at the hospital.
“We’re talking about types of epilepsy that are extremely difficult to treat with medication,” he said. “Most of these children and adults do not respond to normal pharmacological treatment.”
Inflammation and oxidative stress are intimately involved in the genesis of many human diseases. Unraveling that relationship therapeutically has proven challenging, in part because inflammation and oxidative stress “feed off” each other. However, CBD would seem to be a promising starting point for further drug development given its anti-oxidant (although relatively modest) and anti-inflammatory actions on immune cells.
The research in terms of medical application of CBD is expanding dramatically, and with good reason. As a natural, plant-derived anti-inflammatory, CBD joins other familiar players in this arena like turmeric which is derived from curcumin, as well as ginger and many others.
13. Improve skin condition
CBD oil can be used topically to treat skin conditions. Studies show CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions like eczema by encouraging abnormal cell death. It can also help regulate the skin’s oil production, reducing acne. CBD also contains many nutrients like vitamin E that help improve and protect the skin.
14. Can boost Focus, Motivation and Productivity
There are two properties in CBD that can increase focus, motivation, and productivity.
Neuroprotective Properties. CBD has been widely studied for its neuroprotective properties. Neurotransmitters are responsible for the way in which our brain functions on a daily basis. There are many reasons why they may be damaged. Chronic stress, emotional trauma, and certain injuries can all cause our brain cells to die prematurely, resulting in poor cognitive function. That’s why CBD may be able to stimulate cognitive function in a gentle, natural way. It simply helps the brain rebuild itself so that it may function better.
Another common cause of poor motivation, focus, and productivity is low serotonin levels in the brain. Many of us are aware that depression can be caused by depleted levels of serotonin in the brain. CBD can help boost serotonin levels back to where they must be in order for our minds to function at the proper level throughout the day.
CBD’s antidepressant properties can give a person the motivation that they need while increasing mental stamina, concentration, and productivity. Unlike popular stimulants like caffeine, CBD won’t make a person feel edgy or shaky after consumption.
15. Can Kill Bacteria
CBD has been shown to have antiseptic properties when used orally or topically. This natural compound, nearly free of negative side effects, could be highly effective in killing bacteria and fighting infections, without the resistance commonly encountered with common antibiotics and other treatments.
16. Anti-aging effect
CBD oil also has antioxidant properties that contribute to the research indicating it can help lessen the visible signs of aging skin. By counteracting free-radical damage, CBD anti-aging creams may be able to help visibly diminish issues like wrinkles, skin dullness, and ruddy skin tone.
Another benefit of CBD oil is that it has been found to have significant soothing properties. Its substantial skin-calming and skin-normalizing effects can help minimize issues related to skin sensitivity, including redness. Even if you don’t think of your skin as “sensitive” per se, all skin types are affected by environmental stressors, so CBD’s soothing mechanism can help keep skin in check.
17. Increase restful sleep
There are two thoughts about how CBD works to aid in sleep. One is that CBD helps relieve anxiety and pain, both issues that can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. The other is that CBD interacts directly with receptors in the brain that govern the body’s sleep and wake cycle.
Anxiety is one of the many causes of sleep issues. If you struggle to turn your mind off at the end of the day, CBD might be what you are looking for. Stresses throughout our day, such as demands from work, tense relationships, horrible traffic, and constant distractions from social media are very common in today’s society. For some, all these stresses pile on and lead to anxiety.
CBD works by interacting with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a series of receptors in our body that help create homeostasis and perform other regulatory functions, such as appetite, memory, sleep, mood, and perception of pain. When we ingest CBD, the cannabinoid goes to work to help improve the brain’s capacity to deal with stress. The result is a calmer mind, which leads to the ability to fall asleep faster and stay asleep.
So, to put it simply: CBD helps you sleep by calming the mind.
18. Promotes healthy weight
The aiding of weight loss by CBD works on the premise of brown fat. Brown fat helps to convert white fat into the brown variation, which is also the same concept known as “fat browning.” Aside from achieving that when exercising, and exposing yourself to cold temperatures, the browning of fats can also be facilitated by CBD. Cannabidiol (CBD) aid the fat browning in various ways, such as decreasing the presence of those proteins that stimulate fat cell growth, and by stimulating the proteins and genes in immature fat cells, which triggered the breaking down fat instead of storing it.
The last but not the least of the feasibility of CBD in promoting weight loss is the suppressing of appetite. It does that by regulating or controlling the intake of calories.
The intake of Cannabidiol (CBD) would aid in the regulation of the cravings to eat more. It makes you more mindful of your food consumption, such as not eating between meals, and eating large amounts of food at a go to suppress the cravings for more food thereafter.
19. CBD as antibiotic fighting superbugs.
The threat of superbugs is nothing new – it is a growing global concern in healthcare since 2015. Bacteria have mutated into these superbugs by becoming resistant to drugs, making many antibiotics ineffective. This means that these antibiotic-resistant bacteria have become nearly impossible to treat.
The researchers, at the University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience, discovered through a series of test-tube experiments that CBD is capable of killing numerous strains of bacteria, even the ones such as VRSA, VISA, and MRSA.
Due to CBD’s ability to disrupt the layers of liquid around bacteria cells – called biofilm – which antibiotics had difficulty in penetrating, it’s obvious that it’s very unlikely to cause resistance, but only to some extent.
Australian researches discovered that CBD is effective against Gram-positive bacteria strains which cause conditions such as pneumonia and skin infections.
CBD is available in several different forms. This allows people to tailor their method of use to their specific needs. Here are the most common forms of CBD:
Oils and tinctures
These liquids, usual oils, are infused with CBD and placed under the tongue with a dropper. The oral mucosa is full of tiny capillaries that absorb the compounds quickly.
Oils and tinctures are a good choice for anyone who can’t take pills or capsules.
CBD oil can be extracted from the whole plant of a CBD-heavy strain of marijuana using a variety of solvents. It’s important to look for an oil that’s not extracted using neurotoxic materials, such as butane, which may leave dangerous residues in the final product.
One of the best methods for CBD oil extraction is through the use of CO2, which uses low temperatures and high pressures to create a potent and pure oil. Ethanol and coconut oil are also used in the extraction process, depending on what the intended use for the oil is. CBD oil can be taken directly or it can be put into capsules to be taken like regular pills.
CBD oil can also be mixed into different food items such as smoothies, or it can be baked into edibles. CBD oil, whether in the form of an edible or in its pure state, can be a great option for people who desire to have a discreet administration method for their medical cannabis.
Tinctures are alcohol or vegetable glycerin-based cannabis extracts that tend to be less concentrated than oil. Tinctures are normally found in dropper bottles and come in many different concentrations of CBD to THC. Tinctures can be made at home or purchased. A tincture can be taken through a dropper directly into the mouth or mixed into food or drink. Much like oil, tinctures can be a very discreet method of administration for cannabis, making it a good option for patients who need doses throughout the day when they may be in a more public setting than their homes.
Creams and lotions
CBD – Topical products can be applied directly to the skin. CBD topicals can provide anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Topical products are non-psychoactive, no matter their concentration of THC or CBD. CBD topicals can aid in reducing inflammation, which can particularly help people who suffer from conditions such as arthritic joint pain or muscle aches. They can also treat some skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis.
Capsules and pills
CBD capsules and pills are used for systemic treatment of seizure disorders and digestive issues. The U.S. Food and Drug AdministrationTrusted Source recently approved the first high-potency CBD drug to treat seizure disorders.
There’s one drawback with capsule forms, though. The time from ingestion to the onset of effect can take a while.
Gummies are one of the ways to take CBD. They’re affordable, portable, discrete, and tasty. There’s also no guesswork involved: You know exactly what dose you’re taking.
Inhaling vaporized CBD oil, like e-cigs for CBD, is the fastest way to experience effects. Compounds are inhaled and absorbed directly from the lungs into the bloodstream.
The jury is still out, though, on whether vaping does damage to delicate lung tissue. Proceed with caution if you choose to vape CBD.
How much CBD oil to use?
Start with 5 mg per day, to release pain. This way a 20 ml bottle will last for one month.
Test it for 3 – 4 days, increase if you need until you get the desired result.
Max 10 mg one time.
Wait 30 min before taking more. Take more often than one time per day.
If you feel anxious or stressed take 4 drops under the thong and count till15 before swallow it. It will make you feel like in a chill Sunday in a short time.
You have too many thoughts and you can not sleep in the night? The same, 4-5 drops will help raise the melatonin level in your body so you can sleep like a baby.
The urge to drink a beer or any alcohol doesn’t help you quit drinking? Take the sublingual drops at least for one week and the craving for alcoholic drinks will drop dramatically.
CBD helps with balancing all the systems in the body. If we are balanced we can sleep well, feel to eat better, take care more of the body and soul, becoming more healthy, relaxed and balanced.
CBD side effects
Some reported side effects of cannabidiol include dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and drowsiness. Signs of liver injury have also been reported in some patients, but this is less common.
