CBD TEST: The Wonder Oils That Will Save Us from the Pharma Devils
I had just finished my hardest climb of the summer, my shoulder, weakened from an ancient AC sprain, feeling like it was gonna fall off. But going home I stayed away from the Ibuprofen (given my family history with heart problems and the link now between NSAIDs and heart issues). Instead, I turned to CBD gummies to fight the inflammation and the pain. And as I sat down, I no longer noticed anything in my shoulder. To the point where I completely forgot about it as I cooked dinner for the family, even took my son for a quick lap up our garage climbing wall and that’s really the key. CBD is a modern miracle.
What is CBD, and What Does it Do?
CBD is cannabidiol, the part of the cannabis plant that doesn’t get you stoned — it’s not psychoactive, though it has strong effects on the nervous system, among others. It’s known for its pain-killing abilities, as well as for its value as an anti-inflammatory. It’s been used to help treat anxiety and even been posited as an aid in battling withdrawal while struggling to overcome addiction.
But it’s also been shown to help treat epilepsy, suppress cancer cells, help with diabetes inflammation, even slow the onslaught of Alzheimer’s. Most recently, our editor administered CBD to a close family member to fight Parkinson’s, to great results. A long list of its many positive effects can be found here [https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/317221.php ]. But on top of its potency with humans, CBD oil has been shown to be a huge help with man’s best friend.
CBD for Dog Seizures & Arthritis, Anxiety and More
We run a pet-sitting service out of our house. That means we get all sorts of dogs in all sort of conditions. But the worst are the dogs feeling separation anxiety. We recently had a black lab overfilled with energy who ran around the house, nervously picking up our son’s toys, who spent all night pacing, who just couldn’t relax. But since I’d just received a few containers of Hemp Bombs and Nature’s Script, I administered a few drops of Hemp Bombs which allowed the dog to relax, curl up, and enter a fitful sleep. He woke up the next day considerably more comfortable and familiar. To think of how many times my friends have had to postpone adventures, or cut them short due to a nervous dog they knew was pacing around the house. And you can’t reason with an animal, can’t talk him or her down. But with this all-natural simple oil, boom, dog’s comfortable, you’re comfortable, and all is copacetic.
As I said, I recently tried both Nature’s Script and Hemp Bomb gummies and oil. I didn’t notice much of a difference between the two. But they both helped assuage my soreness and pain after big missions, and all without putting money into the hands of the greedy pharma beasts. But also there are some nights when you have an early wake-up and the brain just won’t shut up. Ambien is a huge and hideous drug given like candy to any and all people who have trouble sleeping, another big Pharma money grab leaving countless negative stories in its wake. But CBD oil has similar effects without all the addictive properties or the psychotropic effects associated with Ambien. My wife and I tried a few oil drops one night before bed and fell asleep easily and slept soundly, without any of the side-effects that come from the usual suspects (the grogginess of NyQuil, the pain and poison of alcohol, the frighteningly long list of side effects from Ambien, or even the difficulty waking up early I’ve noticed from straight up THC).
Despite having had a medicinal card in L.A., I didn’t try much CBD oil, and it’s not even necessary to have a script for CBD — it’s legal. Order it to your house, even in ignorantly-conservative Idaho. Still, Nature’s Script and Hemp Bomb are two great brands. Nature’s Script has a huge variety of products, giving seemingly countless options to use the product to treat countless ailments for both you and your pet. Its clean bottles and design give them that air of medicinal wellness for you upstanding folks still under the pharma propaganda belief that anything associated with marijuana is the tool of the devil. And Hemp Bomb, with about as wide a product line, has the look and feel of the products we outdoorspeople have traditionally preferred as alternative medicine, the green THC kind that is. https://hempbombs.com
LifeElements has that whole organic, ethically sourced bit on lockdown. They use honey (which they harvested from their own environmentally conscious hives) and from that, they’ve rolled out a couple interesting alternatives to oil and gummies (though they still have oils). One thing I love is their bath bombs, especially when you’re seriously aching. Another is their CBD and honey skin care products, from ache and pain relief ointment to lip goo and skin repair. https://lifeelements.com/
Finally there’s Quicksilver Scientific’s Liposomal Colorado Hemp Oil. That “liposomal” part means they basically modified the hemp oil to maximize their benefits and reduce (or at least somewhat control) any nonbeneficial aspects. Basically it means it’ll be more effective and quicker-acting. According to Quicksilver, the “Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ phospholipid encapsulation system bring the power of intravenous delivery into convenient oral ingestion.” As CBD exploration increases, some companies are tweaking the effects on your system (more than 1,000 genes are differentially upregulated by cannabidiol). When it comes to isolating and perfecting CBD’s benefit distribution, Quicksilver Scientific is leading the charge. https://www.quicksilverscientific.com
