Cbd discussionsCBD Benefits: How This Natural Compound Promotes Health and WellnessAre you interested in creating a vibrant body and mind? Have you begun to question the veracity of popular health advice? Or maybe you’ve heard people talking about CBD benefits for their wellness routine? CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant. While its structure and stereochemistry were explained in 1963, its ties to marijuana led to a distinct lack of research worldwide. Yet, recent legalisation has lead to a flurry of interest, availability, and research. Thankfully! Why? As the decades whizz by, ill-health continues its upward trajectory. Levels of cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic lung diseases, and diabetes continue to soar. In fact, the chances that one of these four will “take you out” is estimated at three in five. To make matters worse, around one-third of our population live with multiple chronic conditions. Clearly what we’re currently doing isn’t working! But death is not the only concern. Ongoing illness brings with it challenges including mobilityemploymentmaintaining a social lifeenjoying leisure activitiesand more. » Find the perfect CBD remedy for your condition - take free quiz Then there are the ongoing stressors, fatigue, mood disorders, and other health problems that come with the endless hustle and bustle of life. Present-day living, for most people, contributes both to disease and a life lived “less than”. People are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Through either personal struggle or watching loved ones suffer, many have decided to switch their focus and adopt a wellness routine. To flourish rather than flounder. To thrive rather than merely survive. This is where CBD for wellness routine vigour comes in… How CBD benefits your wellness routine? The therapeutic prescription of cannabis dates back millennia. Ancient Chinese texts report benefits for headache and pain, mood and insomnia, menstrual irregularities and anaemia, muscle tension and convulsions. But how might this be at all possible? Cannabidiol works through a biological network called the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. As we explain in our article, The Endocannabinoid System: How Does Cannabidiol (CBD) Work In The Body?… For the body to remain in balance (homeostasis), our cells must be able to “talk”. They do this via signalling… When a key [chemical] meets the right lock [receptor], magic happens; a process is unlocked, a signal can be sent. This allows a message to be amplified and passed along. Thus, a response can occur. In the ECS, the “keys” are cannabinoids like CBD. When a cannabinoid binds to its matching receptor, regulation of a range of bodily functions occurs… This may have benefits for sounder sleep, a healthy appetite, enhanced memory, optimal fertility, pain relief, and more. Via this mechanism, CBD produces a range of beneficial changes that may support your health-boosting wellness routine. How CBD benefits the four foundations of wellbeing There are foundation pieces we need to get right to live a healthy life; stress managementsufficient sleepa healthy dietadequate exercise Cannabidiol may help with the first two. And when you’re well-rested and relaxed, the second two become much easier. 1. CBD may help with stress management Oh, the joys of the modern age! If you’re not attempting to multitask or create extra time to finish your to-do list, enjoy! But if you are, welcome! You are not alone. But constantly having the pedal pushed firmly to the metal can be exhausting, overwhelming; yes, stressful! This ongoing pressure can take its toll on your physical and psychological health. Yet, there is hope. A review published in the journal, Neurotherapeutics, found that “Overall, current evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders.” Cannabidiol may be just what you need to calm nervousness and stress. 2. CBD may support healthy sleep and wake cycles Do you head to bed only to toss and turn? Do you wake during the night, besieged by incessant worries? Or do you rouse to the alarm feeling unrefreshed? Formulate Health’s, Insomnia Statistics UK 2021, found that 36% of UK adults have trouble falling asleep at least once every week. For 20% it’s a daily (or should we say, nightly) struggle. But if counting sheep isn’t working, CBD may offer sleepy respite. A 2019 study titled, Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series, found that sleep scores improved within the first month for two out of every three participants. As an added benefit, “Anxiety scores decreased within the first month in [79.2% of people].” It’s not surprising, then, that users report CBD helps to manage self-perceived anxiety, stress, sleep. 3. CBD can be included as part of a healthy diet You may have noticed that CBD has sky-rocketed in the dietary supplement food category. While hemp seeds and hemp oil have been touted for their omegas, CBD oil has little know nutritional value beyond its high antioxidant profile (which can help your body fight off free radicals, help you defend yourself against certain illnesses, and support healthy brain activity). That said, CBD is now required to be registered as a novel food in the UK, which could help thrust nutritional research forward. For the sake of this discussion, it is worth noting that CBD is generally combined with a carrier oil like olive oil, coconut oil, or hemp seed oil; which are loaded with ‘good fats’ that are essential to your diet. Just don’t overdo it if you want to maintain a healthy weight. 4. CBD can be incorporated into your exercise regime Then there is exercise to tie it all in together. For starters, preliminary research has suggested that CBD possesses anti-inflammatory activity, which could affect exercise-induced inflammation and related pain. So if this is true, you can certainly use CBD as part of your exercise recovery regime to discourage delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) or the likes. So if you need to get moving, CBD might just be your best friend. It goes without saying, if you have any concerns about CBD’s effects on your body, speak to a healthcare provider. What is CBD oil CBD oil is made by extracting cannabidiol from the Cannabis sativa L. industrial hemp plant. CBD oil that is extracted from hemp contains, by law, less than 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis. This means it won’t get you high. It is then blended with a carrier that then “carries” the functional properties, allowing them to be retained, easily spread, and even enhanced. Carriers include alcohol, or oils like coconut, olive, jojoba, grapeseed and sweet almond. A comparison of CBD oils: Why it matters legally? There are different types of CBD oil. The choice you make matters, particularly from a legal perspective. Full-spectrum CBD oil Full-spectrum CBD oil contains a range of compounds, including THC. While THC is regulated under UK law, many products inadvertently contain higher than legal levels. This can result in a positive THC drug test, loss of license, or a criminal record. Broad-spectrum CBD oil Broad-spectrum CBD oil contains a range of compounds, but no THC. This type of CBD is popular with users who want to take advantage of the additional compounds besides CBD in the plant, but do not want the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD isolate CBD isolate oil contains CBD-only. The absence of THC ensures you gain CBD’s health benefits without exposure to THC. This is the option we at Cannabotech incorporate so we can provide you with our Pure CBD Guarantee!

As with any new health and wellness routine, it is important that you speak to a trained healthcare professional if you have a specific condition you are managing. Choose the right CBD concentration and dosage for you We are each unique, as are our bodies and the way we respond to nature’s compounds. So, as with all nutritional supplements, trial and error may be required. The way you take or apply CBD also matters, as does the health challenge you wish to relieve. As a general rule, start with a small dose and work up to find the right amount for you. For internal use, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) advises healthy adults to take up to 28 drops a day of a 5% CBD ( 70 mg) unless recommended otherwise by your doctor.For external use, we suggest working starting with about the size of a pence for a small area (Just enough to rub in smoothly without leaving a thick film in the area of concern). Remember, it is best to speak to a healthcare provider if you are concerned about a specific condition. The CBD for wellness routine takeaway Growing insight into the many benefits of CBD has led to an overdue revolution. People are incorporating cannabidiol in their wellness routine en masse. Is it time you join this road to health and wellness too?
Cbd discussionsCan You Take CBD For Histamine Intolerance?Histamine Intolerance is a condition in which your body produces more histamine and inflammation than it should or has difficulty breaking it down, leading to increasing build-up over time. This causes a number of uncomfortable symptoms, both allergenic in nature and also relating to the digestive system. It would seem that CBD, being derived from cannabis (a pollinating plant that could be allergenic in nature), should therefore aggravate these symptoms. But is it as simple as that? How CBD and Mast Cells Interact With Each Other Mast cells, also known as mastocytes, are cells located in connective tissue that have high levels of histamine and are important to your body's immune system. In short, when a pathogen (allergenic or not) activates a mast cell, it releases inflammatory histamines to aid in the immune system's fight against the pathogen that activated it. Those with histamine intolerance tend to have overactive mast cells that release more inflammatory histamines than they should. It would stand to reason that consumption of pollinating flowers would cause an even more excessive release of histamines. However, studies show that CBD actually inhibits the release of histamines by mast cells. Thus, CBD would therefore be beneficial to those who suffer from histamine intolerance. That being said, it's not quite as simple. Final Thought: Counter-Intuitive CBD Use It's important to understand that the way you use CBD when dealing with something allergenic in nature should be carefully considered. Any method involving inhalation (be it through vaping or smoking dry herb) might give you the benefits of inhibiting histamine release by mast cells but will also still aggravate the lungs and airways. This could result in a counter-productive increase in inflammation. A better method of CBD usage would be the ingestion of oils or capsules. That way, you won't aggravate the airways and still reap all the benefits of CBD's anti-inflammatory properties.
Cbd discussionsHolistic Treatments for Polymyalgia Rheumatica (CBD Oil and Others)Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) is categorised as an inflammatory condition that leads to joint pain and stiffness, commonly affecting individuals older than 50. It is difficult to diagnose, and currently impossible to cure. The best pharmaceutical treatments for the condition involve combating the symptoms with low-dose corticosteroids, which is problematic as long-term use of corticosteroids can lead to osteoporosis. Recently, individuals are turning to various alternative treatments and natural remedies in an attempt to help symptoms of PMR holistically, which will be covered in this article. What are the Best Pain-Relief Treatments for Polymyalgia Rheumatica? Choose a Healthy Diet Although a healthy diet may not fix the problem outright, certain foods can definitely worsen the symptoms of PMR. When choosing what foods you should eat, consider sticking to the following guidelines: Anti-Inflammatory Foods such as nuts, fruits, leafy greens, whole grains, and green tea can contribute to a decrease in inflammation throughout the body.Foods rich in Calcium and Vitamin D, such as soybeans, spinach, cheese, fatty fish, eggs, and mushrooms can help maintain good bone health and counter the negative effect of steroids and corticosteroid medicines.Omega-3 Fatty Acids obtained from fish, seeds, and leafy greens can help counteract the immune system's further production of inflammation. In addition to these, you should stay away from foods that are deep-fried or contain poor-quality vegetable oils, refined carbohydrates and sugars, alcohol, and red meats. Take Supplements If certain foods are unattainable, they can be replaced with supplements in order to give your body the necessary nutrients that it needs. Consider Alternative Medicines Traditional Chinese Medicines have been reported to have varying effects in the holistic treatment of rheumatic conditions. Corydalis (Yu Jin) contains a pain-relieving compound called dehydrocorybulbine (DHCB), and Curcumae (Jiang Huang) has been noted to reduce chronic inflammation.Chinese massages have been known to free up stiff and sore shoulders (a common symptom of PMR), promote vigour and strength, and soothe pain.Acupuncture has been associated with relieving pains associated with arthritic and rheumatic conditions. Using CBD Oil for Polymyalgia Rheumatica Although CBD oil may not directly treat PMR, certain products can help with certain symptoms as there is scientific evidence to support the theory that CBD has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. CBD oils and tinctures can be taken to reduce general inflammation throughout the body over a longer period.CBD balms and creams can be applied topically to particularly inflamed or painful areas. Can CBD Be Taken in Conjunction With Corticosteroids (Prednisone)? CBD interacts with many drugs, and, unfortunately, corticosteroids are one of the most prominently noted. CBD and prednisone both are potent inhibitors of the cytochrome P450 enzyme CYP3A. Taking them in conjunction could lead to a decrease in the clearance of the corticosteroid, which is a measurement of the volume of plasma from which a substance is completely removed per unit time. This interaction is potentially dangerous as it could lead to increased side effects from prednisone, namely, among others: Weight gainMuscle weaknessLower resistance to infectionOsteoporosisAn onset of, or worsening of, diabetes and hypertension. A Final Thought: Can CBD Oil Replace Prednisone? Due to the potential for increased side effects, it is not advised that CBD oil and prednisone be taken in conjunction with one another. Since corticosteroids have the potential to cause osteoporosis in the long term, CBD may be considered as a potential replacement in the future, but there is currently no scientific evidence to support this theory. What this means for you is that you should consult directly with your doctor before deciding to end your medication as they can give you more insight and advice on the topic.
Cbd discussionsTaking CBD Oil Sublingually (Under the Tongue): Guide, Safety, and BenefitsSublingual application is the process of placing a substance under your tongue. This allows it sufficient time to diffuse through the surrounding tissue and into the bloodstream, which differs from regular oral consumption. This article will discuss all you need to know about using CBD oil sublingually, the benefits, how-to, safety, side effects, as well as some product recommendations. How to Correctly Administer CBD Oil Under the Tongue Though the method of taking CBD sublingually is very specific, it's also incredibly easy. Note that the substance must be held under the tongue as different areas of the mouth have different types of cells that might not be permeable enough for diffusion into the bloodstream. CBD oil needs to be put under the tongue and held for at least 60 seconds to allow sufficient time for the molecules to diffuse across the epithelial cells. This method remains the same regardless of the dosage or the form (oils or tinctures). There is no correct dosage or best time of day to do this as it varies depending on the person and condition being treated, but it stands to reason that higher doses might require more time to diffuse into the bloodstream. When taking higher doses, hold the CBD under your tongue for up to 2 minutes without swallowing to ensure complete absorption. Additionally, it's advised not to take the CBD during or directly after a meal as some of the oil may absorb into the food particles and not into the bloodstream. How Often Should You Take CBD Oil Sublingually? Although it varies, most individuals take CBD oil sublingually once or twice a day, either in the morning or a few hours before bed. Bear in mind you can also take it both in the morning and in the evening, and that you are not limited to these times. However, figuring out how often you should take CBD oil depends on the individual and relates to various factors such as body weight and the severity of the condition. Take Back Control Naturally Whether you're looking to unwind after a long day, manage stress, or improve your sleep quality, Relax Drops by Cannabotech may be just what you need. Contains pharmaceutical-grade CBD oilPacked with 3 types of functional mushroomsNo psychoactive ingredients, 0% THC The Relax Drops are designed to provide a calming and relaxing effect on the body and mind, thanks to their unique blend of natural ingredients and high-quality CBD oil. Benefits of Taking CBD Oil Sublingually Here are some of the biggest benefits of administering CBD oil under the tongue: Increased Bioavailability: Since sublingual application bypasses the metabolic process of digestion, far less of the raw CBD is lost. The term bioavailability refers to how much of a substance can be utilised by the body and differs depending on the method. As for CBD products, the only method with higher bioavailability than sublingual is inhalation.Faster to Take Effect: Similarly to increased bioavailability, bypassing the slow digestion process means that the effects of CBD tinctures taken sublingually can be experienced much faster. Whereas it can take upwards of 30 minutes to benefit from oral consumption of CBD, taking CBD oil sublingually can yield results in only a few minutes.Ease of Use: Not having to prepare the product or inhale smoke and vapour makes sublingual application easier. Just place a few drops under your tongue, don't swallow for a few minutes, and let your body do the rest. Is Holding CBD Oil Under the Tongue Safe? CBD is generally understood to be relatively safe compared to most substances. Taking CBD oil sublingually doesn't increase the risk of any CBD-related side effects compared to oral consumption. Let's take a look at some commonly asked questions: What Happens if You Accidentally Swallow CBD Oil? Accidentally swallowing CBD oil won't pose any risks to your body. However, once you swallow the substance, you are no longer taking it sublingually. Instead, you are consuming it, which means that it will have to be metabolised through your digestive system before your body can utilise it. Although this isn't dangerous, it does mean decreased bioavailability and slower onset of effects. Should You Take CBD With Food or an Empty Stomach? Since sublingual application bypasses the digestive system entirely, there's no need to worry about taking it with food or on an empty stomach. Neither will change the results. Can You Drink Water After Applying CBD Oil Under the Tongue? After the total time is up, the process is complete, and the CBD has diffused into your bloodstream. Drinking water or eating food now won't prevent the CBD from working, so you are free to do as you please. However, you might want to give it a few more minutes before drinking any water just to ensure that your body manages to absorb as much CBD as possible. Side Effects of Taking CBD Orally and Sublingually Aside from the general side effects of CBD, the potential side effects related to sublingual application are mild and uncommon, though some people have reported the following: Slight numbness under the tongueAversion to the texture of CBD oilAversion to the taste of CBD tinctures Sublingual CBD Myths Busted Despite the low risk of mild side effects associated with CBD, there are some unfactual claims about certain supposed side effects that simply aren't true. The most popular ones are: "CBD stains your teeth" This myth comes from the associations between smoking and stained teeth. Make no mistake, smoking tobacco products and cannabis alike will definitely stain your teeth over time, but simply putting a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue will not turn your teeth yellow. "CBD makes your breath smell" This myth likely also comes from the associations between smoking and bad breath or potentially from the relatively unpleasant taste of CBD oil. However, bad breath is caused by odour-producing bacteria in the mouth. On the other hand, CBD has antibacterial properties that can actually aid bad breath. If you're still worried about the potential effect of CBD oil on your dental hygiene, simply take it before bed or in the morning and brush your teeth afterwards, as this will not impact the effectiveness of the product. The Sublingual Route: Taking CBD Oil Under the Tongue is Safe and Effective Taking CBD tinctures sublingually is far more advantageous than oral consumption of tablets or oils. With its higher bioavailability and speed while not presenting any higher risk of side effects, sublingual application is one of the best and most effective ways of taking CBD. However, before including CBD in your lifestyle, you should consult your doctor, especially if you are on other medications.
