How can CBD help with anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling and emotion felt by most people, a fact further accentuated by the frantic pace at which our modern societies advance. An increasingly common ailment that can have different degrees of impact on our mental and physical health. It can, for example, cause depression. And when we know that Europeans, and more particularly the French, are among the top-consumer of anti-depressant, CBD comes to impose itself as a miracle solution much healthier. So what are the benefits of cannabidiol against anxiety? How to consume it to effectively fight anxiety? Tutoarduino answers all these questions below.

How to define anxiety?

First of all, it is important to describe a little more precisely how anxiety can manifest itself and impact an individual in his daily life. Anxiety is defined more as a feeling, as an emotion rather than as an illness. It results from an accumulation of conscious and unconscious stress. In more severe cases, it can manifest itself in the form of panic disorder, obsessive disorder, phobia, social disorders, as well as post-traumatic stress from an accident or shocking experience. More pronounced forms can cause breathing problems, aches and pains, dizziness, severe headaches, but also tachycardia or strong heat rises.

It is also interesting to note that anxiety can itself be a symptom of so-called higher illnesses. Anxiety known as secondary anxiety can result from bipolarity, hyperthyroidism, depression itself or even major psychiatric disorders or hypertension. So many symptoms and diseases on which CBD has had promising impacts since science has decided to focus on its virtues.

How can CBD alleviate anxiety

At present, a whole bunch of pharmaceutical drugs are marketed with the aim of alleviating anxiety in people who suffer from it. But their major problem is that these same drugs can have several side effects, but also, and especially, caused an addiction in its consumer. This is where CBD comes in as the safest and healthiest alternative for human beings. Because in addition to effectively fighting anxiety, cannabidiol has proven itself against certain serious skin diseases such as multiple sclerosis, but also on Parkinson’s disease, and even on certain forms of cancer.

Not to be considered as a full-fledged drug, CBD can be an excellent ally against anxiety. Indeed, it acts and dissipates completely in our body thanks to the natural presence of our endocannabinoid system, and thus on the CB1 and CB2 receptors. A process that generates the creation of serotonin and its influx into our brain. This hormone acts directly on the mood and on the feeling of well-being and happiness. A proven result, since proven by several international studies in recent years.

Benefits that have boosted its image among new consumers of legal cannabis. Because unlike its cousin THC, cannabidiol has no psychotropic effect. This could accentuate certain ailments such as personality disorders, bipolarity by promoting hallucinations and paranoia for example. But even if the CBD does not represent any danger for the health, it is important to dose its doses so that it acts in the most optimal way.

What dosage to choose ?

First of all, it is important to know that CBD will have a different degree of effects in each person, as they do not all react in the same way. For that, it is important to find the mode of consumption which pleases you the most. The cannabidiol in herbal tea remains surely the most adequate to the good and complete dissipation of the benefits of our magic molecule in our body. The e-liquids and the flowers consumed under specialized vaporizer are also an excellent way to take advantage of the CBD, even if the time of the effects will be less than those caused by the consumption of an herbal tea. CBD oils as well as massage balms are also a good way to benefit from the virtues of cannabidiol, especially when it comes to local applications. CBD honey can also be just as effective as infusions, since it spreads directly into the bloodstream, and therefore, impacting in a beneficial way the whole of our organs.

In short, it is important to find the right dose and the most pleasant way to enjoy CBD, it will take care of the rest. We advise you to consult your doctor beforehand to discuss the subject with him. An expert eye will surely help you make a more informed and serene choice.…

sleeping disorders

Smoking a cannabis joint to fall asleep might not be a very good idea

A recent study conducted over more than a decade has delivered a novel conclusion. Indeed, it established a link between cannabis use and sleep disorders. Smoking cannabis would cause more difficulties to fall asleep, to stay asleep and would make smokers sleep too much.

Does cannabis impacts the quality of sleep?

Smoking cannabis in the evening to sleep better is a habit that concerns many people around the world. According to the followers, this plant would help to relax and would allow to sleep well. However, a study published on December 6, 2021 in the BMJ Journals states that this is just a preconceived idea. The study was conducted by the University of Toronto (Canada), in collaboration with various health organizations in the United States.

The researchers tried to understand the possible relationship between the use of cannabis on the moment and the duration of sleep by integrating no less than 21,729 volunteers between 2005 and 2018. They took into account many factors such as ethnicity, level of education, age, number of hours worked per week and other health-related criteria. Of course, the researchers also included information on sleep quality and cannabis use.

The study placed participants in three categories based on the length of their night’s sleep. The first category was for short nights (less than six hours), the second for “optimal” nights and the last for long nights (nine hours or more).

Smokers with sleep problems

The scientists asked the volunteers about their possible difficulties in finding sleep or staying asleep. They were also asked to find out more about sleeping for too long. Next, the participants were again divided into two groups: cannabis smokers who had used in the past month and those who had not. The 3,132 smokers in the sample included moderate smokers (less than 20 joints per month) and heavy smokers (more than 20 joints per month).

According to the results, 34% of moderate and heavy cannabis users reported sleeping less than six hours per night and 56% more than nine hours. In general, they reported having more problems falling asleep or staying asleep. Others also confirmed that they slept too long.

According to the researchers, heavy cannabis users are more exposed to both extremes of sleep duration. The study results are believed to be related to an unknown consequence of repeated exposure to cannabis. It may also be a reflection of underlying sociodemographic or health factors. The scientists believe that it is possible that as the body becomes accustomed to cannabis, it becomes more susceptible to sleep disturbances.…

Argentina legalizes self-cultivation of medical cannabis

Argentina legalizes self-cultivation of medical cannabis

Personal and network cultivation is allowed for Argentine researchers and patients who register with the National Cannabis Program.

The Argentine government has legalized the self-cultivation of cannabis for therapeutic use as well as the sale of medicinal oils and creams in pharmacies, according to a decree published Wednesday, November 11, 2020 in the Official Gazette. This is a revision of the law passed in March 2017 allowing the medicinal use of cannabis oils but maintained the prohibition of self-cultivation and possession of seeds in individual or collective form.

Sale of oils and creams produced from cannabis allowed in pharmacies

The decree, signed by President Alberto Fernandez, aims to allow “access and protection (…) to those who need to use cannabis as a therapeutic tool”, says the text. Thus, personal and network cultivation is allowed for researchers and patients who register with the National Cannabis Program, which had been created by law but was not operational. The sale of oils and creams produced from cannabis is also authorized in pharmacies.

Patients and families of children with serious pathologies who produced their own oil to improve their quality of life demanded to get out of the illegality. “Today, we cry with joy because we started this fight for our children (…). We are one big family fighting for the same right, the right to quality of life. We are going to cultivate our medicines without fear” (…) We are not criminals”, the collective “Mama Cultiva” said on social networks.

Alleviate the effects of Parkinson’s disease

Cannabis oil is administered to treat epilepsy as well as for the palliative treatment of pain in people with cancer, fibromyalgia or to mitigate the effects of Parkinson’s disease. The Argentine state also intends to embark on the public production of medical cannabis to ensure access to patients who lack medical coverage. In 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to pass a law allowing the cultivation of medical and recreational marijuana, the formation of growers’ clubs and the supervised purchase of marijuana in pharmacies.…

swiss legalisation cannabis

Cannabis: Switzerland prepares for legalization

After the National, the State Public Health Commission has largely agreed to regulate the cannabis market.

The way is clear: parliamentarians can now prepare the law that will “lift the prohibition of cannabis and completely revise the regulations on its cultivation, production, trade and consumption”. The Committee on Public Health of the Council of States voted 9 to 2 in favor of the parliamentary initiative to regulate the market, a few months after a (closer) vote of the same committee of the National.

Put an end to the black market

The committee of the States wants to treat the problem in its entirety. “It will be necessary to ensure that the black market is contained and that only cannabis whose quality has been controlled is available,” it said in its statement issued Tuesday afternoon.

The initiative accepted by the commissions speaks indeed “to introduce a tax and regulate advertising, to dry up the black market by removing the prohibition and to supervise the production for personal use”. The protection of minors must be considered a priority, the text says.

From now on, the National Health Commission will have to work on writing the law, which will then be submitted to both chambers in plenary. Given the votes of the elected representatives of the commissions and the positions of the different parties, the proposal has the potential to be accepted.

Times are changing

First to react, the Young Socialists “welcome the clear decision of the commission and hope that the chambers will quickly deal with this object”. The Swiss Greens had also called for acceptance of the solution in the previous vote. The FDP is somewhat divided, but some sections are advocating the decriminalization of all drugs.

The Centre and the SVP have been rather sceptical in the past, but it should be noted that the parliamentary initiative was tabled by Heinz Siegenthaler from Bern, who sits for the PBD, i.e. in the parliamentary group of the Centre, and that he is a former member of the SVP.…

strong cannabidiol

What is the strongest CBD available?

For thousands of years, cannabis has been known by many cultures. To this day, it remains the hot topic of discussion, and it is common to confuse cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD), which are two different substances in terms of their health effects.

CBD is beneficial to health and its use is constantly growing in the medical field, as it is mainly used to calm pain and intervenes in other disorders. It is now legalized in some countries because of these therapeutic effects.

In this article, we offer you the selection of the variety richest in CBD and its importance on the body.

The strongest cannabidiol

There are several varieties of CBD offered by brands. Generally, medical cannabis consumers are looking for weed that is present in high amounts of CBD. However, choosing to find the strongest strain is a bit difficult.

Candida (CD-1)

Candida (CD-1) is genetically made up of Indica and Sativa, presents a cross between the two varieties AC DC and Harlequin. This variety contains the highest content of CBD and the lowest content of THC, moreover it does not produce psychoactive effect.

In fact, this variety is favored by people who wish to obtain medical benefits, because its level of THC is less than 1% which means, that it does not give any considerable psychoactive effect, contrary to what you can find in other varieties of cannabis the rate of THC is very abundant and produces thus, a high effect.

The medical potential of this strain is enormous, because its concentration, very high in CBD which goes from 11 to 20 %, allows him to treat a great number of disorders such as the anxiety, the insomnia, the epileptic seizures, the disease of Alzheimer. Candida (CD-1) is considered a true medical relief, while having little or no psychoactive effect.

The effects of the strongest CBD on the body

In order to project the importance of the strongest CBD, you must first know its benefits on the human body:

  • Reduces inflammation and calms pain.
  • Relieves epileptic seizures.
  • Helps fight depression.
  • Reduces stress and anxiety, as it has a relaxing effect.
  • Helps to reduce the side effects of cancer drugs.
  • Beneficial on mental disorders.

The functioning of CBD is based on its interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), it has two receptors:

  • CB1: present in the brain and central nervous system.
  • CB2: present generally in the whole body.

For the mode of action, CBD influences indirectly on the receptors which gives, thereafter, a soft response which will be treated by the ECS, moreover it acts on the receptor (5-HT1A) to secrete serotonin and melatonin, which enters the regulation of the mood and the sleep. The medical use of CBD requires high intensity, but the choice of the latter is based on your needs.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis that refers to a plant named hemp, and in botanical language called Cannabis Sativa. It is essentially, a very complicated plant to demonstrate with respect to these little known constituents. Nevertheless, CBD is the major constituent of the cannabinoid.

CBD is the prevention of cannabidiol, according to an etymological study, this name is composed of two independent parts and each of them gives information on the meaning of CBD :

  • Cannabi: comes from cannabis which means a plant from which the molecule is derived.
  • Diol: refers to a chemical substance displayed under the name of glycol.
  • CBD: the composition of the chemical substance present in the molecule, also including oxygen and hydrogen.

In its natural state, this molecule is very abundant in cannabis, once the molecule is extracted from the plant, its name will change to cannabidiol, moreover thanks to this extraction the molecule can be presented as an essential oil. Finally, CBD has become very popular for its adaptation in electronic cigarettes, but also for its benefits in therapeutic use.…

when to consume CBD

Is there an ideal time to consume CBD?

You want to consume cannabidiol “CBD” and you want to know how and especially when to take it?

You will first have to choose which product you want to consume CBD with, as there are several. It is possible to vaporize CBD with an e-cigarette or to inhale it in a traditional way, the legal cannabis with a high content of CBD and almost 0% of THC is legal to sell.

There is also CBD oil, which is used for several reasons including weight loss, and cannabidiol can also be found in lozenges or candy.

In this article, we will tell you when to take CBD for each of the cases mentioned above.

Knowing when to take CBD depends on how you use it

As we said, CBD can be present in e-liquid, and in this case, it is used for vaping. Otherwise, you may want to consume it in lozenges or in oil form. The body will consume cannabidiol in different ways, depending on how it is administered and the medium that is used. The duration of the effect of CBD is also influenced by this.

When to smoke CBD or vaporize it?

In order to have very fast effects of cannabidiol on your body, inhaling it or vaping it with an e-cigarette will provide you with this speed, because the CBD will go directly through the lungs, and more precisely the alveoli of the lungs which will accelerate its arrival to the blood.

If you have pains or crises, this method is preferred for its very fast and effective effects, otherwise, for long-lasting effects, prefer CBD oils or capsules.

When to consume CBD edibles like candies or capsules?

Cannabidiol capsules or lozenges are convenient to have on you at all times, and there is nothing to prepare, it’s like medicine that you have, if you feel like consuming it, just open the box and take it. The good thing is that there is a precise dosage in mg and when we know our habits and how much CBD we want, this dosage is perfect to suit everyone’s needs.

Nevertheless, the effects of this alternative, unlike vaping or smoking, are longer, and go from one hour to several hours (about 6h) because they pass through the stomach and must be digested.

When you are looking for quick relief from pain, this is not the best option.

It is however, advised to take these lozenges or capsules during your meals for a better assimilation of CBD by your body.

When to take cannabidiol oil?

All over the world, this alternative is the preferred one, composed of a vegetable oil which reinforces the assimilation of CBD as well as a little hemp which is very rich in CBD. A few drops on the tongue, the mucous membranes assimilate the cannabidiol oil very well and it diffuses quickly in the body. In addition to the speed of assimilation, it is the safest and most convenient way to take advantage of the benefits of CBD that make it :

  • A pain reliever.
  • An anti-inflammatory.
  • An anxiolytic.
  • An anti-epileptic.
cbd and lungs

CBD, an ally in the management of lung cancer?

As more and more physical and online stores offer cannabidiol (or CBD) for sale in recent months, research continues to determine whether this naturally occurring compound in cannabis has therapeutic benefits.

In addition to its relaxing and sleep-enhancing effects, studies have found that CBD may be effective against lung damage caused by Covid-19 infection or delay the formation of beta-amyloid plaques, which cause Alzheimer’s disease.

In an article published in BMJ Case Reports, researchers suggest that CBD oil could be used as a potential treatment for lung disease.

A 76% decrease in tumor diameter

The cannabinoids found in CBD oil can interact with signaling pathways in cells, including cancer cells. Although other studies have shown conflicting results about their effectiveness as a primary treatment for cancer, this new work is encouraging.

It results from the follow-up of an 80-year-old patient diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. She also suffered from mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), osteoarthritis and high blood pressure. She was a smoker and consumed more than a pack of cigarettes per week (68 packs per year).

At the time of diagnosis, the patient’s lung tumor measured 41 mm and could be treated conventionally with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. But the woman refused treatment. So she was placed under surveillance, with regular CT scans every 3 to 6 months.

The scans showed that the tumor was gradually shrinking, from 41 mm in June 2018 to 10 mm in February 2021, an overall reduction of 76 percent of the maximum diameter.

When contacted in 2019 to discuss her progress, the woman revealed that she had been taking CBD oil as an alternative self-treatment for her lung cancer since August 2018, shortly after her initial diagnosis: 0.5 ml of oil, usually three times a day, but sometimes two.

Other than loss of appetite, no other side effects have been reported. The patient also made no changes to her prescribed medications, diet or lifestyle. And she continued to smoke throughout.

More research needed

The researchers caution that this article is not a clinical trial. It is only a case report, with only one other similar case reported. They explain that they don’t yet know exactly what ingredients in CBD oil may have been effective in decreasing the size of the tumor. “Although there appears to be a relationship between CBD oil intake and the observed tumor regression, we are not able to conclusively confirm that the tumor regression was due to the patient’s intake of CBD oil.”

“Further research is needed to identify the actual mechanism of action, routes of administration, safe dosages, its effects on different types of cancer, and any potential adverse side effects when using cannabinoids,” they conclude.…

cbn cannabinoide

What is CBN? What you need to know about this cannabinoid

Over the past couple of years, CBD has invaded the beauty, food and beverage, and wellness industries in the form of everything from bath salts to fruit gum, seltzer, chocolate, and oil drops.

However, there is a new cannabis-derived chemical that is soon to become as popular as CBD, thanks to its ability to promote a good night’s sleep. Meet CBN. It’s a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that offers relaxing and sleep-inducing properties, which means your sleep could be more restful after consuming CBN gummies or oil drops.

What is CBN?

Cannabinol, aka CBN, is derived from hemp plants. “CBN and CBD are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but they have different chemical structures,” explains Dr. Elizabeth Ardillo, director of medical education at Green Thumb Industries.

When THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main active ingredient in cannabis, is heated and exposed to Co2 (oxygen), it turns into what is known as CBN. What makes it the latest and greatest cannabis-derived product? “CBN products are popular right now because they promote a better night’s sleep. They have a relaxing effect,” she adds.

But what about CBD?

They’re only one letter away, so what’s the difference between CBD and CBN? CBD, which is a Cannabidiol, is found in cannabis and hemp plants. In contrast, CBN is created by exposing THC to light. Biology aside, CBN has mild psychoactive effects, unlike CBD-based products; you may feel a high when taking a CBN-based product, but it won’t be as intense as the one you would feel when consuming THC. See also: The differences between CBG and CBN

The benefits of taking CBN

Research on the effects of CBN is limited since this cannabinoid is difficult to synthesize. Most of the studies that exist are still in preclinical phases, but we can retain some interesting potential effects:

  • It helps to reduce anxiety
  • It acts against certain bacteria
  • It increases appetite, without psychoactive effect
  • It has a soothing effect on inflammation
  • It promotes sleep and a better sleep

Researchers are particularly interested in its effect on appetite, since it seems to stimulate hunger behaviors like THC. Its main advantage? Unlike the latter molecule, it does not produce undesirable and psychoactive side effects.

As with CBD, the benefits of taking CBN include improved sleep quality, pain relief and anti-inflammation. However, CBN is much more potent when it comes to sleep. “CBD is not as useful as CBN when we’re talking about these relaxing properties,” says Dr. Ardillo.

After taking a CBN supplement, the average consumer can expect to feel the effects within 30 to 180 minutes. “We don’t want someone to take one dose and after 15 minutes take another because they don’t feel any effects. It’s very important to understand how these products work to ensure your health and safety,” she says. If you don’t feel the effects of CBN, wait at least an hour before taking another dose.…

Cbd And Cytokine Storm

One primary biological event which occurs in patients with the case of serious acute respiratory distress from the COVID-19 is called a “cytokine storm.” This is where your body will experience an increase in proinflammatory cytokines. The cytokines are a category of proteins, and the cytokines involved in a cytokine storm increase inflammation.

Multiple Studies That Support CBD And Its Cytokine Storm Fighting Properties
There are a lot of research studies that have concluded that cannabis can block a cytokine storm in patients suffering from COVID-19.

An example is a mouse-model study carried out in the year 2020 which found out that CBD, being an active cannabinoid compound from cannabis, has the effect of reducing proinflammatory cytokines, it also can improve the clinical symptoms of the mice with symptoms similar to the COVID-19
The study will also suggest that CBD works as part of COVID-19 treatment by protecting your lung tissue inflammation and reducing the cytokine storm.

How Else Could CBD Help In Treating COVID-19?

Cannabis is showing a great potential to decrease inflammation as well as scarring in the patients with COVID-19, how else can the cannabis assist the patients suffering from COVID-19?

Pain Relief

With COVID 19 symptoms, which include sore throat, body aches, pain relief, and headaches, will be experienced by many patients.
Cbd has shown great potential in relieving pain, it is capable of increasing the effects of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter inducing pain relief.

It can be very stressful to find out that you have COVID-19. This is because it is e31highly infectious nature, patients are isolated from friends and family. The serious and scary nature of the illness can also take a serious toll on your mental health.

Compounds found in cannabis have indicated an impressive quality of reducing anxiety. Especially CBD. CBD which is a cannabinoid compound can assist in reducing the symptoms of anxiety and stress. CBD will increase the activity of serotonin and also lower the level of cortisol.

Reducing the chemicals is very important for managing anxiety as serotonin will help in reducing anxiety, additionally, cortisol is a stress hormone often found in higher levels in patients with depression and anxiety.
In a double-blind placebo trial in 2019, CBD was also found to reduce anxiety in teenagers with social anxiety disorder.

Is Inhaling Cannabis Smoke A Good Idea For COVID-19 Patients?

Since the most common way you can consume cannabis is through inhaling the smoke of the cannabis flower, this is not the only way you can consume therapeutic compounds can be consumed. A lot of research where cannabis is involved uses oil extracts, such as CBD oil.
Cannabis oil is normally consumed by vaping, ingestion, topical application, or nasal sprays. Various delivery mechanisms do not involve your lungs and will leave out the potentially harmful substances which come with inhalations of smoke.

Cbd has indicated a great potential in the fight against COVID-19, this is due to the anti-inflammatory properties it possesses. A recent study which is published in Aging indicates that cannabis can greatly improve your condition if you are suffering from COVID-19. It can reduce a cytokine storm as well as protect your lung tissue from inflammatory damage.
Cannabis and its Cbd compounds hold several other important therapeutic properties, including pain relief and anxiety reduction.
