A Mom's Take on Summer...

"As I reflect on the magic of summer - the easier days, the later nights, suntans and beaches - I acknowledge that not all of us are able to experience summer like that. For many of us these summer months can make life more stressful and complicated. School is out, but life, work and commitments go on. No surprise then, if you are experiencing anxiety, sore muscles and insomnia. Let me tell you, from experience, that CBD Oil is just what you need! Proven to relieve anxiety, help you sleep, treat soreness and acute pain (and so much more) - CBD oil is something I keep in my family’s first aid kit and cannot do without. And with that in mind, this month we are offering you special deals on all the Living Nutritional’s Hemp Oil (CBD oil) products!


First let me clear up a few misunderstandings about CBD Oil: No, it cannot get you ‘high’ or change your state of mind, but it influences the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively. While both THC and CBD are cannabinoids, THC is the psycho-active compound that creates the “high” associated with marijuana. CBD has an entirely different effect on the body. CBD is safe and non-habit forming. "


DID YOU KNOW? All mammals produce cannabinoids and have an abundance of receptors!


CB1 receptors are extraordinarily abundant in the brain. They are more abundant than most other G protein-coupled receptors and 10 times more abundant than mu opioid receptors, the receptors responsible for the effects of morphine.148

Cannabinoid receptors have been studied most in vertebrates, such as rats and mice. However, they are also found in invertebrates, such as leeches and mollusks.156 The evolutionary history of vertebrates and invertebrates diverged more than 500 million years ago, so cannabinoid receptors appear to have been conserved throughout evolution at least this long. This suggests that they serve an important and basic function in animal physiology. In general, cannabinoid receptor molecules are similar among different species.124 Thus, cannabinoid receptors likely fill many similar functions in a broad range of animals, including humans.




Along with limiting inflammation in the brain and nervous system, which may benefit people experiencing pain, insomnia, and certain immune-system responses, CBD is also being used to treat smoking cessation and drug withdrawal. Other uses include: Treating seizures and epilepsy, anxiety, reducing some of the effects of Alzheimer's- as shown by initial research and antipsychotic effects on people with schizophrenia. Plus there are applications in combating acne, type 1 diabetes, and cancer to name a few.


Since passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD has risen to the forefront of American consciousness as an alternative health and wellness supplement, and research finds that a growing number of consumers are using it to replace their prescription and over-the-counter drugs. How wonderful is that!


Fighting Cancer:


Some researchers have found that CBD may prove to combat cancer. Authors of a review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found evidence that CBD significantly helped to prevent the spread of cancer. The researchers also noted that the compound tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction. They pointed out that CBD has low levels of toxicity. They called for further research into its potential as an accompaniment to standard cancer treatments. Although more research is required to confirm some uses of CBD oil, it is shaping up as an incredibly promising and versatile treatment, and as we have been sharing with you- there seems to be no end to the incredible testimonials from user’s own personal experience.


And on top of all that good news: People are even giving CBD to their pets! It’s not hard to find anecdotal stories of CBD having a positive impact on their beloved dogs and cats, and ailments like separation anxiety, arthritis, joint pain and aging. That said, it’s important to understand the benefits and precautions when giving CBD to your dog or pet.
