Millions of Americans struggle with getting proper rest despite how essential it is for our health. It is no secret that our bodies need sleep to keep our brains and other organs fully functioning, our memory and cognition in good shape, and in order to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. 

As we all know, this doesn’t always happen. Whether it’s a night here and there, or a chronic or recurring issue, it can leave us feeling drained, affecting our overall quality of life. In fact, missing out on sleep can be downright dangerous, and prolonged insomnia can lead to long-term health issues such as diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, depression, and more. That is a startling fact, to say the least.

However, if you are someone who struggles with sleep, don’t worry! We have some amazing products lined up from our cannabis dispensary in Port Hueneme, along with our other locations, that we recommend to help you get the rest you deserve.

How CBD Can Help You Manage Your Anxiety

If you are the one in thirteen people around the world who suffers from anxiety, you know that it isn’t a fun thing to handle. Restlessness, sweaty palms, stomach aches – none of these symptoms are pleasant to deal with. According to the World Health Organization, anxiety is the most common mental health disorder worldwide.

For those who live with anxiety, finding a safe method to help manage it can be a huge concern. Some prescription medications, like Xanax or Valium, contain substances that can be addictive. While other medications, such as Prozac, can help decrease symptoms over time but don’t work for everyone.

So what does that leave? Don’t feel like you’re out of options – turn to CBD! CBD is the new rising star in helping people with anxiety by decreasing symptoms and creating an all-natural remedy. Keep reading to learn more!

 

Does CBD Really Work?

If you’re just beginning to take a look at CBD, you should know that it is a viable option for helping those with anxiety and has been gaining traction over recent years. Evidence has been accumulating in its favor, pointing to the medicinal benefits it has as well as its therapeutic potential. 

In a 2019 study conducted in Japan, 37 teenagers with social anxiety disorder, or SAD, received either a 300 mg dosage of CBD oil or a placebo each day for four weeks. The teens were then assessed with surveys used to diagnose and measure SAD symptoms. According to the reports, the anti-anxiety properties of CBD was able to reduce the symptoms that are associated with the disorder, proving that it was able to effectively offer aid. This is comparable to Paroxetine, a prescription medication that is often used to treat SAD.

In another study out of Fort Collins, CO, researchers took a look at 47 patients who reported having concerns with anxiety. Over the course of three months, the majority of those patients were given 25 mg of CBD in addition to their daily standard treatment. After the first month, almost 80% experienced an improvement in their anxiety symptoms. After two months, 78% of patients reported continued improvements compared to the previous months. 

 

Different Ways to Consume CBD

When you’re looking to get started with CBD, getting familiar with the various types of products that are available is a crucial first step. There are pros and cons with each option, and it is important to determine which one would best suit your needs.

Tinctures and Oils

If you are looking for an option that is quick, easy, and accurate to consume, then opting for CBD tinctures and oils would be the best route. Most tinctures contain CBD as an alcohol base. CBD oils often have CBD extracts that are infused with a carrier oil. For this, think along the lines of coconut oil or hemp seed oil. 

For this method, you can either add drop sublingually with a drop under your tongue or choose to mix it in with your favorite herbal tea. When consumed sublingually, the cannabis enters the bloodstream at a quicker rate, kicking in as fast as about ten minutes and lasting anywhere from three to four hours. 

CBD Vape Oils

In recent years, vaping has been a huge cause for concern due to some of the health issues that have popped up. However, based on reports from the Center for Disease Control, these issues were linked to illicit-market THC vape cartridges that contained vitamin E oil, making them dangerous. 

When purchasing from a legal, state-licensed cannabis dispensary such as From the Earth, you can rest assured that all of our products are highly regulated and safe to use. If you have any questions, be sure to ask one of our helpful staff members while in store!

Edibles

One of the best things about CBD is that it can be added to just about any food you desire. Gummies, chocolate, baked goods – doesn’t matter! This is an especially good choice if you are someone who finds comfort in food.

An important thing to note about edibles, however, is that it can take about an hour to feel the effects of CBD, so tread lightly, especially if you are new to edibles. Because CBD has to pass through your gastrointestinal tract, it slows things down a little bit.

Dosing for Beginners

If you read through the studies that were linked above, you will notice a key difference between the amounts that those in the trials were given. The students in Japan each were given 300 mg daily, while those patients at the Colorado facility were given 25 mg. At this time, there is no recommended ‘perfect’ amount for CBD. 

However, this isn’t necessarily an indication that CBD is unsafe. In fact, existing studies suggest that it appears to be a safe and well-tolerated treatment option. If you are considering experimenting with CBD, here are some basic factors you should consider.

  • Body weight
  • Metabolism
  • Concentration of CBD
  • Severity of your anxiety

Keeping these things in mind should help you when choosing which products to purchase. Once again, if you have any questions, stop into one of our locations. We would love to help you find the right fit for you and your needs. 

No matter what, don’t let anxiety keep you down or stop you from enjoying the things that really matter. Tincture, edible, vape – doesn’t matter! Harness the natural power of CBD and get to feeling better ASAP!

3 Things You Should Know About Full-Spectrum Cannabis Extracts

Jars containing live cannabis resin

Jars containing live cannabis resin

Full-spectrum cannabis extracts have been gaining in popularity recently with the topic becoming talked about more and more. But why is that? More than likely, the answer is because full-spectrum extracts, also known as whole-plant extracts, contain the whole cannabis profile as opposed to just one. Rather than getting the benefit of just a single cannabinoid, whole-plant extracts contain a wide variety, ranging from THC, THCa, CBD, CBDa, CBG, and CBN. 

Also, with full-spectrum extracts, you are able to access a wider berth of terpenes, as well as other components, such as flavonoids, proteins, esters, and more. This feels like you are getting more bang for your buck and gives you access to a host of benefits from each, rather than just one or two. 

So, what are a few things you should know prior to looking to get started with full-spectrum extracts from a local weed shop in Port Hueneme? Keep reading to find out!

 

1.) The Entourage Effect

 

One of the main reasons that these extracts are becoming a desirable cannabis option is because of the multiple uses it has from a medical and therapeutic perspective. When cannabis compounds work together, it creates what is known as ‘the entourage effect’. This is the theory that when used in tandem, the different components of the plant combine to create an enhanced experience, increasing the active substances, such as THC and CBD. 

Think of it like ordering your favorite meal at a restaurant. Sure, your main dish is great, but getting to enjoy all the sides and flavors at once makes it truly an experience worth remembering. The same concept applies here, only with cannabis instead!

 

2.) Extraction can be difficult

 

However, if there is one thing that is true about full-spectrum cannabis extracts, it is that they are extremely difficult to produce. This is because while you want to harness as many of the desirable compounds as possible, you also want to purge anything unnecessary. There are some refinement techniques that you can do to help with the process, however, they often strip extracts of some of the more desirable features, such as terpenes and flavonoids.

Here are a few extraction methods. Keep in mind that each one is different and is used to achieve a different goal. As an example, a live resin extract taken from a fresh cannabis plant will have a totally different profile from one taken from dried plant material. 

 

  • Hydrocarbon Extraction:

    For this method, butane or a butane/propane blend is used to create full-spectrum extracts. By doing this, the extraction can be tweaked a little. Hydrocarbon gas is cooled and then liquefied before being passed over raw plant matter. From there, the desirable compounds from the plant are dissolved and the resulting solution can be refined further using different techniques, including winterization and dewaxing.

     

  • Supercritical CO2 Extraction:

    Temperature and pressure play a huge role in supercritical CO2 extraction. This method creates phase changes in CO2, altering it from a gas to instead taking on qualities indicative of both a gas and a liquid. It can easily seep into porous solids thanks to its gas-like viscosity and low surface tension.

    By making some modifications to both temperature and pressure, you are able to adjust the CO2 to create the exact environment needed to extract only the most desirable compounds of the plant. Though this method does call for some complex pieces of equipment, it requires little to no post-processing, which is an added benefit in contrast to some of the other extraction methods.

     

  • Pressure:

    The whole purpose of full-spectrum extracts is to take out any unwanted components. This can include plant lipids that have a negative effect on flavor or even the quality of vapor when using a vaping device. On the same hand, however, concentrates containing lipids, such as rosin, can be considered full-spectrum. Rosin is created by squeezing resin from starting material using both heat and pressure.

    The main upside of this extraction method is that it doesn’t require the use of a solvent and therefore, is considered to be a relatively safe option. However, since heat is still involved, some worry that the desirable components of the plant will be lost during the process. 

 

3.) Where to buy full-spectrum cannabis products

 

If you have your internet browser pulled up your phone or laptop and you search for ‘weed shops near me in Port Hueneme’, without a doubt, our location at From The Earth will pop up. In our shop, we sell a wide array of quality cannabis products, including those made with full-spectrum extracts!

One of our top picks is Moxie’s Dream Queen resin badder. As a brand, Moxie is world-renowned for creating the highest quality products on the market by implementing only the best techniques, technology, and procedures out there. By adding this to your cart, you are sure you get a great high. 

Or, if you are someone who enjoys vaping, grab a live resin cartridge from Alive and Well. This gives you the same effect as the resin badder, only this time in a convenient and discreet vape cartridge. This is the perfect addition for any vape enthusiast! 

Another great option for a potent, full-spectrum product is by opting for terp sauce. Terp sauce refers to the runny, terpene-rich concentrate that comes from when cannabinoids and terpenes separate from one another, leaving behind a watery mixture of aromatic terpenes. It resembles a substance that is a bit less dense than honey, pouring out like sauce.
