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!

What is CBG?

When discussing cannabinoids, THC and CBD tend to be the frontrunners, as they are the most commonly seen in products and prevalent within the cannabis community. THC and CBD exist in thousands of products, ranging from traditional flower to edibles to massage oils.

However, did you know that there are over one hundred different, unique cannabinoids out there? This includes CBG. While it is lesser-known, it is worth learning about for a number of reasons. 

And why is that? Well, first, we need to explore what CBG is and what it means.

 

What is CBG and how is it made?

CBG is short for cannabigerol and it is present in most cannabis strains, though it is usually only about 1%. That is why it is considered a minor cannabinoid. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerol acid (CBGA), which serves as a precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: THCA, CBDA, and CBCA.

Specific enzymes work together within the plant to break down CBGA and route it to the three lines. Once those acids are exposed to elements such as heat or ultraviolet light, they become the cannabinoids we already know: THC and CBD. 

Recently, breeders have begun experimenting with genetic manipulation and cross-breeding plants in order to get a higher yield of CBG. By zeroing in on the best extraction time, scientists have been able to extract even higher amounts of CBG. Typically, the best extraction time is about six to eight weeks within the flowering cycle.

Potential Medical Benefits

Now that some of the technical talk and science is behind us, let’s explore why it’s important to look closer at CBG: the possible medical benefits. 

The human body is equipped with the ECS, or better known as the endocannabinoid system. The ECS works to keep the body balanced and achieve homeostasis, which is physiological equilibrium. 

In general, the endocannabinoid system helps to perform various functions specific to each area of the body, from the brain to the skin. As an example, when you are injured and suffering from inflammation, the ECS can help regulate immune cells to help limit inflammation and pain. 

  • Eye structures: Endocannabinoid receptors are especially prevalent with eye structures. CBG is thought to be particularly helpful with issues such as glaucoma because it reduces intraocular pressure. It is also a strong vasodilator and comes with the added benefit of a neuroprotective.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease: In a study conducted on rats, CBG was found to help decrease the inflammation characteristic of IBS. IBS affects over 200 thousand Americans each year and can have a debilitating effect and keep them functioning within normal life. By exploring CBG for IBS, it could make treatment more readily available and prove relief. 
  • Nerve Cell Degeneration: Huntington’s disease is a well-known degenerative disease that affects the brain. In a 2015 study conducted on mice with Huntington’s Disease, CBG was shown to protect neurons in the brain. This could mean new opportunities for older adults who have a predisposition to Huntington’s due to genetics.

  • Cancer Fighter: Great promise has been shown for CBG as far as its ability to aid in fighting cancer. Specifically, studies have showcased CBG’s ability to block receptors that can cause cancer cell growth. In a study conducted on mice, CBG was shown to inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells, therefore slowing colon cancer growth. CBG inhibited tumors and chemically-induced colon carcinogenesis.

  • Anti-bacterial agent: Ever since the 1950s, topical formulations of cannabis have proven to be an effective solution for skin infections, even if at the time researchers were unaware of the plant’s chemical make-up. Evidence has shown that CBG is also effective as a means of an antibacterial agent, especially against the aggressive and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or better known as MRSA. This is a huge breakthrough as many microbial strains have evolved and become resistant to several classes of drugs.

  • Appetite inducer: While being an appetite-inducer is also a health benefit of THC, harnessing CBG can be a non-psychoactive way of achieving such a benefit. Cachexia is the metabolic mutiny that occurs in cancer patients who see major weight loss and muscle mass deterioration. Research has shown that a form of purified CBG was able to be an appetite stimulant in rats.

  • Bladder Disorders: When five different cannabinoids were put to the test against bladder contraction, CBG proved to be the front-runner and inhibiting muscle contractions. Because of this, it could be the future of preventing bladder dysfunction disorders.

 

As more and more research is conducted on CBG, we could very well see new products featuring this particular cannabinoid so that it is more readily accessible to the public. Being able to include CBG could mean more advances in cannabis for medical use and an all-natural way to treat some of the disorders that we explored above.

Overall, CBG is also worth exploring because of its non-psychotropic characteristics. A psychotropic is any drug that has an effect on behavior, mood, thoughts, or perception. This would make CBG a great candidate for potential use as an antidepressant, treating psoriasis, and even for pain relief.

What is CBN and What Are its Benefits?

Cannabis produces many types of cannabinoids. In fact, there are more than one hundred different cannabinoids that are found in cannabis plants. Though the two you may be most familiar with are THC and CBD which you are most likely to find for sale at your local cannabis dispensary. 

Cannabinol or CBN is a minor cannabinoid found in cannabis. CBN has a multitude of its own added health benefits and due to the entourage effect, works best when paired with other chemical compounds found in cannabis. This can include other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids. 

So what exactly is CBN, and what are its benefits? Let’s find out!

 

What is CBN?

To answer this question simply, CBN is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages. The degradation of THC can be accelerated depending on how your cannabis is stored so you’re likely to find high amounts of CBN in older cannabis. Some might view ‘old weed’ as a bad thing and a turn-off, but utilizing aged cannabis to access the effects of CBN is a good thing!

What are the benefits?

While CBN and its potential benefits are currently being explored through research, the following benefits have come up in recent studies. 

Antibacterial 

Some strains of bacterial infections are resistant to traditional antibiotic medications due to the prolonged prescribing of traditional antibiotics. This means that treating certain bacterial infections can be very difficult and leaves the individual feeling sick for a longer period of time.

In a recent study, CBN was tested on strains of MRSA bacteria that have been proven to be resistant to traditional treatments. Researchers found that CBN was actually a potent agent in combating these resistant strains. Maybe soon, CBN will be the go-to for physicians when trying to treat bacterial infections, especially those that are resistant and difficult to treat. 

Neuroprotectant 

As a credit to the social media challenge a few years back, the average person is now aware of what ALS is and just how debilitating the neurodegenerative disease can be. While this disease can be scary to think about, we may have some hope in CBN. In a study conducted on rodents, CBN was shown to delay the onset of the condition. While there have been no human trials as of this time, the evidence suggests that CBN may be a powerful tool in the future to utilize as a neuroprotectant.

Appetite Stimulation

If you are someone who would rather opt to avoid THC due to its mind-altering effects, but you need help with appetite stimulation, then choosing products with CBN would be an excellent choice. In rodent studies, CBN was shown to increase the amount of food that the subjects ate, which is a good indicator that it increases appetites. Although further studies are needed, CBN could be a great alternative for those who don’t want to get high, but still want to eat more. 

Glaucoma

Due to a recent study conducted on rabbits that showed CBN decreased intraocular pressure, the cannabinoid may very well be the future in glaucoma treatment. This intraocular pressure is the biggest cause of glaucoma. 

THC has been known to help treat this as well, but for individuals who don’t want to feel the high sensation associated with THC, CBN may be the next available option. However, human trials have not yet been conducted with CBN for the treatment of glaucoma.

Anti-Inflammatory

Just like CBD, CBN is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. In a rodent study, CBN was shown to reduce arthritis in the animals tested. While more research needs to be conducted, CBN very well could be another natural solution for those who suffer from joint pain and arthritis, as well as other degenerative diseases.

Why It’s Important to Know the Difference Between CBD and THC

Two tinctures one says THC the other says CBD, with cannabis leaf sitting next to them on table

Two tinctures one says THC the other says CBD, with cannabis leaf sitting next to them on tableSince its widespread legalization, the rapidly growing industry of hemp and other cannabis products has raised continuous questions among consumers who plan on visiting a cannabis dispensary. As the market grows and expands, it is important to become educated, as there is still some confusion on the difference between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products, what they do, how they are used, how they are legally different, and what potential benefits they may have. 

CBD and THC are two natural compounds found in plants of the Cannabis genus. CBD can be extracted from hemp or cannabis, both of which come from the Cannabis sativa plant. In order to be recognized as federally legal, hemp must contain 0.3% of THC or less. CBD is non-intoxicating. It works naturally with our bodies by binding to receptors in our endocannabinoid system. Popular CBD products are sold in the forms of topicals, gummies, oils, extracts, flowers, and more. 

Gummies, such as the pomegranate gummies manufactured by From the Earth, are easy, chewable gummy tablets and can be used to provide relief for anxiety, depression, and pain.

Other products, such as the ReLeaf Balm, are a topical balm that can be applied to sore or overworked muscles and is great for providing relief from inflammation and stiffness.

The main psychoactive compound in cannabis is THC, which is responsible for producing the ‘high’ sensation when you consume cannabis. Our bodies absorb THC & CBD whether it is smoke, eaten, or applied as a topical to our skin. Cannabis legalization has opened the door to a growing list of products including oils, edibles, tinctures, capsules, topicals, drinks, and more.

At From the Earth, you can buy a variety of THC products Nighttime Tablets are a sleep aid that can help provide a good night’s rest without the groggy, hangover feeling that some over-the-counter meds can cause. 

While THC and CBD, have a few things in common, they also have some staunch differences and knowing those are essential to being a responsible consumer. 

 

CBD vs. THC: The Chemical Makeup

Though CBD and THC differ in many ways, at their core, they have the same chemical structure: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms.  slightly adjusting how these atoms are arranged has varying effects on the body. 

Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, which are molecules that help our internal functions run smoothly. Our endocannabinoid system is the bridge between body and mind, it’s what keeps our bodies in homeostasis. CBD and THC have very similar chemical makeups to our naturally occurring endocannabinoids, allowing them to interact with our cannabinoid receptors. When this interaction occurs, it triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are the chemicals responsible for sending messages between cells, and also have an effect on pain reception, immune function, sleep, stress, and more. 

 

CBD vs. THC: Psychoactive Factors

Even though they share a similar chemical structure, both CBD and THC have very different psychoactive effects. CBD is classified as psychoactive, meaning  CBD is proven to help with issues like anxiety, depression, and seizures but it doesn’t produce the same ‘high’ experience that THC does.

In order to produce a high, the THC consumed will bind the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. However, CBD forms a very weak bond, if one ever forms at all, to these receptors. Without THC, unwanted psychoactive effects such as sedation or euphoria won’t happen. So in other words, without this bond, there is no high. 

 

CBD vs. THC: Legal Issues 

As the current situation in the United States stands, the legality of cannabis-related products is constantly changing and shifting.  36 states, 4 territories, and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis at varying degrees for adult and medicinal use. The 2018 farm bill legalized hemp-derived CBD, this means it cannot contain more than .3% THC. Although this bill does legalize hemp-derived CBD, any CBD that was derived from a cannabis plant is still deemed illegal under federal law. 

Before purchasing any CBD products, it is important to educate yourself on your state’s laws. Should you possess cannabis-related products when they’re illegal, you could face criminal or legal repercussions. 

Currently, 33 states and the District of Columbia have ruled medical cannabis with high levels of THC legal when prescribed by a licensed physician. Some states have taken it a step further and passed laws legalizing the recreational use of cannabis. To read up on the legality of these products as well as a cannabis dispensary in your state, check out this resource.

CBD vs.THC: Potential Benefits

Due in part to their similar chemical makeup, CBD and THC share similar medical benefits as well. Some of the various health conditions CBD helps with are listed below.

 

  • Seizures
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Psychosis or mental disorders 
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Nausea
  • Migraine
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 

In turn, THC helps with the following conditions:

  • Pain
  • Muscle Spasticity 
  • Glaucoma 
  • Insomnia
  • Low appetite
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety 

As indicated by their lists, they help aid with many overlapping medical conditions. However, CBD doesn’t have the aftereffect of getting high.

 

CBD vs THC: Side Effects

The consumption of any sort of chemical has a side effect. THC and CBD are no different in this regard. However, what exactly these effects entail do vary between the two. CBD is well tolerated, even when used in high dosages. 

Potential side effects of THC:

  • increased heart rate
  • coordination problems
  • dry mouth
  • red eyes
  • slower reaction times
  • Impaired thinking or concentration
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia 

CBD side effects may include:

  • appetite changes
  • fatigue
  • weight loss
  • dizziness
  • Diarrhea

These side-effects are a direct result of the compound’s psychoactive properties. And while neither compound is fatal, excessive use of THC may have a connection to long-term psychiatric effects, especially in teens who consume the product in high amounts. 

 

Conclusion

Overall, THC and CBD infused products have designated medical benefits and are considered safe to use. But as with any drug, over-the-counter, or prescription, your medical history, and current medications should be taken into consideration prior to use. This is an important factor to ensure that you are using cannabis-based products as safely and effectively as possible. Before use, consult your doctor or physician to make sure you are using the correct and legal products.

 

What You Need to Know About CBD Oil in Beauty Products

CBD oil, marijuana leaves and CBD tinctures, CBD beauty products

CBD oil, marijuana leaves and CBD tinctures, CBD beauty products

Walking down the beauty aisles at any retail store you will start to notice CBD taking over the shelves. Thanks to the loosed regulations in the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD oil, so long as it is extracted from an industrial hemp-based plant, labeled correctly, and has lower than 0.3 percent THC, is legal to use. 

 

One of the most asked questions about CBD beauty products, or anything containing CBD in general, is “will it get me high?” The answer is no. Because these products are to have lower than 0.3 percent THC, you cannot get high from CBD infused products. THC is the cannabinoid that, in high percentages, will produce euphoric properties and creates a head high. CBD, the other main cannabinoid, has more health benefits and calming effects.

 

Thanks to the loosened laws and the latest scientific studies coming out about CBD and how it can offer many health benefits, CBD is here for beauty, and you should be too.

Add it in as part of your nightly routine or whenever you feel your skin is needing a little extra moisture. Cannuka also has other skincare products you can use alongside its healing balm that all contain CBD. From the Cannuka Hydrating Lip Balm to the Cannuka Harmonizing Face Cream, you can have your entire skincare routine include CBD for an overall calming feeling. While CBD beauty products are great for their calming effects, as we have discussed, they also include many other benefits for our skin. CBD is great for reducing inflammation which can cause dry skin, acne, and wrinkles.
