“CBD-enriched health foods, tinctures and oils are the next revolution in food and medicine” – so says Reality Sandwich author Allan Badiner http://www.realitysandwich.com/high_health_cbd_food_supply.
CBD = Cannabidiol
There currently is an explosion of entrepreneurial activity and creativity around making up for lost time with CBD. LA-based cannabis physician Allan Frankel explains: “up until this past year it was nearly impossible to help patients using CBD. Cannabis growers were focused on the ‘stoniest’ weed’, hence CBD, which is non-psychoactive and mitigates the effect of THC, was nearly lost in this community”.

Our experts are still in the early stages of understanding the synergistic effects of all the extracts from the hemp plant that are known today. More and more extracts are being found each year with now over 400 cannabiniods being listed http://dixiebotanicals.com/about/hemp-history/ .
The overall, combined effect of certain cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavenoids and perhaps another 200 molecules – all working together and carefully balanced (as in nature) produces what Dr Ethan Russo calls an “Entourage Effect”.

Hemp Seed Oil and Skin Care
US Hemp Oil’s Chris Boucher has been a long time hemp advocate and has a few tips for our readers who may have “problem” skin. Chris would suggest a two part program where one applies the hemp oil directly to the skin, particularly on those “problem” areas. The ingredients in hemp seed oil help to soothe problem areas while promoting the appearance of soft, radiant looking skin. The second part of the program involves taking two teaspoons of natural, organic hemp oil per day as a nutritional supplement. Hemp seed oil has a number of beneficial ingredients, including essential fatty acids and essential amino acids. These essential elements cannot be synthesized by the body – they must come from your diet. Try Chris’ program for 4 – 6 weeks and see if your skin looks better!

CBD or Cannabidiol is a natural constituent of the hemp plant that has shown significant health and wellness benefits – CBD promotes and supports the dietary and nutritional health of aging bodies (US Government patent # 6,630,507).
The endocannabinoid system within the human body is one of science’s newest and most exciting discoveries. Here there are two receptor sites on cells of the brain, internal organs and digestive tract (CB-1 and CB-2) that have been shown to be the largest neuro-transmitter system with the entire human body. This neuro-transmitter system regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping and even cognitive function. Phyto-cannabinoids or plant based cannabinoids, such as CBD can assist the body’s health and wellness.
