EVERYBODY GET YOUR ROLL ON… WHAT?

It may be hard to grasp the idea that rubbing or rolling on CBD on the neck and head can assist in alleviating symptoms of headaches and migraines, but growing evidence has been collected and the clinical trials have begun. Unfortunately at this point in the cannabis community, many are depending on anecdotal data. This is still very useful, but it is also disappointing to know the research has lagged behind.

People tire from repetitive use of pharmaceuticals. Or don’t even start them. Whatever the reason,  those turning to CBD each are here for the same reason. Relief.

Would one be more open to believing that there are many other essential oils in the world that can deliver headache relief as well? Like peppermint oil, or rosemary oil. Sometimes society fails to remember that ALL of these pharmaceutical medications that have been ‘proven to work with or without side effects’ or ‘a medical miracle’ ONCE started out from the earth. Sometimes completely by accident.

There seems to be better understanding on consuming CBD for headaches and the benefits of doing so, but growing in popularity are very solid concepts that CBD topicals can give relief within minutes for these disorders as well. Which means faster results, and/or less commitment. I guarantee once you get relief from something as simple as applying a CBD topical to your forehead, you’ll be convinced and ready to drink the Kool Aid. 

‘Dr. Stefan Kuprowsky, a Vancouver-based naturopathic doctor specializing in ethnomedicine and ethnopharmacology, agrees the theory of topical cannabis relief for headaches is sound, especially given cannabis’s known anti-inflammatory benefits.’ “Right now, topicals are most useful for joint-type pain, muscle pain and skin rashes such as eczema, acne and psoriasis,” he says. By extension, a cannabis product could also be helpful for headaches, which are often inflammatory in nature.

Fact of the matter is, headaches are caused by numerous problems. Some headaches are caused due to inflammation, or when the muscles tighten around the base of the skull. And other headaches are caused by blood vessels in the brain running berserk. Differentiating the exact cause of headaches can be seemingly impossible. And leaves us again, with the trial and error side of CBD. Kuprowsky says that other issues can be lessened using CBD too, like migraine pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.

The good part about not knowing which CBD product to try, is that you can start almost anywhere as long as the products are tested and trusted. The cannabis community isn’t throwing you into a cage and waiting on side effects. We’ve taken the tests ourselves, and didn’t need guinea pigs. Thousands of people are having very similar (and very different) results using CBD – and then you have the population of firm non-believers and/or failed ‘patients.’

These are all things you will have to decide for yourself. Everyone is different and what it takes to help one person may be on the complete opposite side of the spectrum for you. Another lovely fact about modern CBD is the prices are becoming more and more affordable. The extraction of CBD is expensive and done in a lot of different ways, and taken in different routes just like any medication. Many factors consider the price of CBD.

It may be to your benefit, that a simpler route of CBD consumption is what works. So that is the absolute best way to start. A lot of times, you can come into a reputable CBD distributor for FREE samples. Just like Charlotte CBD in Charlotte, NC and Columbia, SC.

Topical creams for headaches are gaining popularity, because of their clarity and simplicity. You aren’t orally consuming anything. Nor are you inhaling anything (which is one of the number one routes to take CBD- because of the instant relief and high bioavailability). There are HUNDREDS of CBD creams, oils, and salves to choose from. Now which one do you choose?

I like to recommend something that is a high strength potency and an actual oil rather than a thicker consistency cream, lotion, or salve. Creams and Salves would work well too, but are commonly used more for larger areas of the body, not to mention, thick creams can clog and block pores and can potentially cause breakouts – this does not mean you cannot use them, just do a patch test because she skin on your face can be very sensitive. CBD roll-on oils are usually smaller in size, but pack a large percentage of CBD. They are small and portable and fit into any pocket for a reason.

Topical roll on CBD manufacturers take many approaches to alleviate symptoms. They are created with a broad range of consumers in mind. Some companies use essential oil blends infused with CBD. These companies have identified the best herbs, terpenes, and cannabinoid mixtures to do very specific jobs.

Topical Roll-On CBD products can also be broad spectrum. This means there is much more than just CBD in the bottle. You can see specific cannabinoid content by viewing these product’s Certificates of Analysis or COAs. This will break down percentages of the different cannabinoids that are in the product. The most common cannabinoid that is in these products is obviously CBD, but other cannabinoids like CBG are gaining popularity for their specific benefits.

 In some cases, people respond better to different cannabinoids – but there is no way to find out which ones work best for you until you try them (unless you are a scientist that is!) I have even heard of DNA tests that can tell you which strains of Cannabis will help you the best considering your genealogy and your ancestors place of origin. But this is still a new concept (to me) and I’m sure there is much more research to be found on the topic.

Essential Oils come in to play with most CBD topicals. Whether it is for fragrance or actual beneficial attributes, is completely up to the creator of these products. Essential Oils can do both. Essential oils are often used in aromatherapy, a form of alternative medicine that employs plant extracts to support health and well-being. However, some of the health claims associated with these oils are controversial – just like cannabis. Some essential oils can be applied topically or even ingested.

When CBD and essential oils are mixed, they could potentially be working twice as hard. You get benefits from both separately. When combined this is considered ‘an entourage effect’. This is very common with different cannabinoids as well as terpenes. Every part of the mixture works together to maximize your benefits. 

I have included a list of some favorable CBD infused topical roll-ons. Each with a very beautiful and specific mixture of essential oils infused with CBD. Take a look at the differences between each roll-on and consider this as a starter product especially if you are looking specifically for topicals. This can go much further than headaches and migraines, but these are my #1 choice on the topic.

Does cbd/cbg interact with prozac?

Republished by Plato

Published

on

I've read that the ssri prozac and cbd/cbg/thc are metabolized by the same enzyme in the liver and can cause the ssri to build up in the blood stream and I was wondering if this is a proven fact. It's been very difficult to find research on this. I started taking Prozac but I want to smoke too. If what I've read is true then smoking or consuming any cannabis product will hurt me more than it helps and that means no more cannabis anything..

Not All Hemp Products Are Created Equal

What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Both Hemp and Marijuana are in the cannabis family. Human intervention has produced variation within the species in terms of THC and CBD levels. Simply put, hemp is designated by a man-made definition of THC levels at or below 0.3%. Marijuana is always harvested from female plants and typically has high THC levels with little to no CBD, although some strains can contain verifying levels of CBD/THC ratios. Hemp has over 10,000 known uses, which can be made from both the female or male plant depending on the desired product. Mana Artisan Botanics uses only female hemp plants in our products, with lab testing guaranteeing below 0.3% THC levels.

Hemp extract is the phytocannabinoid concentrate, created through some form of extraction process, most commonly either with supercritical carbon dioxide or ethanol. The extract’s potency will depend on the levels of cannabinoids in the plant, so each batch of extract will have different levels of cannabinoids.

Why should you care where your hemp is sourced from?

The demand for hemp extracts is rapidly increasing in the U.S. However, there is still limited supply of U.S.-grown hemp, resulting in high prices that cannot compete against imported hemp extract from places like China or Eastern Europe. Consumers seeking quality products may find a lack of transparency when it comes to the origin of the hemp extract in their products. And unfortunately, there is limited data behind the volume and quality control behind these imported hemp extracts.

At Mana Artisan Botanics, we take great care to source high-quality hemp that is grown in the U.S., with the specific intention to facilitate health and wellness.

Do hemp cultivation methods matter?

In the cannabis industry much of what is grown, unless it is organic, is sprayed with varying levels of pesticides and fungicides. Most consumers don’t realize this is a common practice. Given the increasing demand for hemp and cannabis, many conventional farmers are transitioning their fields to these high value crops. Yet, hemp’s cultivation environment is critical as it can act as a bio-remediation crop, absorbing contaminants from the soil while it grows. If the hemp was grown in poor or misused soil, that plant might contain toxins you won’t want to ingest.

This is why at Mana Artisan Botanics, we source our CBD-rich hemp extract only from farms that have never had any toxic agriculture on the land or use any harmful pesticides or fungicides. All our products are purity and potency tested at multiple lab facilities such as Steep Hill Labs Hawaii and Hawaii Pharm Labs for cannabinoid levels as well as pesticide residue, heavy metals and other contaminants. State of the art testing methods are used and THC levels are guaranteed to be under the federal limit of 0.3%. If you want to review the lab results, please contact us!

Do different hemp strains deliver varying results?

Many of the hemp products on the market derive their CBDs as a by-product from other types of hemp varieties such as fiber or seed for hemp food products. The levels of CBD-rich hemp extract in these products are lower and lack the diverse spectrum of cannabinoids one would ideally want for an “entourage effect” that delivers the possible synergies made available by whole plant therapies.

At Mana Artisan Botanics, the hemp we source is grown with great care to facilitate high levels of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

What is the entourage effect?

The “entourage effect” or “plant synergy” is the idea that cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids in cannabis interact synergistically to magnify the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.

Are whole plant extracts superior to single-compound alternatives?

Do you know the difference between isolates and whole plant extracts? “Whole plant extract” has a wide range of cannabinoids. Most scientists agree that there is between 80-120 cannabinoids plus additional terpenes, in addition to the better know CBD and THC compounds. With a “whole plant” extract you are getting access to the much wider spectrum of cannabinoids in your hemp infusion for that entourage effect.Isolates are not known to be effective as a whole plant extracts for that very reason. Additionally, isolates can be over processed, sometimes with added chemicals for purification.

Mana Artisan Botanics uses “whole plant extracts” only, with full range of cannabinoids making our infusions superior to single-compound alternatives.

Why does Mana Artisan Botanics include Turmeric in our hemp infusions?

Curcumin, the yellow pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa) is one of the most intensely researched natural products available today. With over 6,000 peer-reviewed studies, including clinical and scientific research, turmeric is shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. We add turmeric in our hemp infusions to further augment the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoids.

Why does Mana Artisan Botanics include Passionflower in our Hawaiian Sleep Hemp Tincture?

Passionflower extract has been shown in studies to be helpful for relieving general anxiety and improving sleep quality. We add passionflower in our sleep hemp tincture to further augment the anti-anxiety effects of cannabinoids.
