Cannabidiol otherwise known as CBD is a compound found in marijuana. Though there are dozens of cannabinoids, which are the chemical properties found in marijuana products that create the effects linked with cannabis consumption, CBD is one of the most plentiful. It’s second only to THC.

On December 15 the DEA concluded their decision to add CBD oil to the Schedule 1 drug list, which means it must meet certain standards.

The federal government named marijuana a Schedule I drug in 1970 primarily for the psychoactive effects of THC. Prior to December, CBD remained in a regulatory gray area.

A Schedule I drug must meet three criteria to be included on the list:

1.The drug or substance has a high potential for abuse.
2.The drug or substance has no currently accepted medical use in the United States.
3.There is a lack of accepted safety standards for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

The CBD classification was made despite recent investigative studies that has preliminarily shown CBD to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic as well as anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects of THC.

Most of the investigative research is still in its beginning stages and opponents of the reclassification complain that CBD fails to meet the Schedule I criteria based on the initial discoveries.

Although CBD is a cannabis component, the CBD-specific industry is a little different from the larger cannabis industry.

“We do have THC-CBD products, but in the recreational industry we are not allowed to sell anything that doesn’t also have THC in it,” said Amanda Woods, Compliance Officer and Marketing Manager for Choice Organics. “So, a lot of the CBD products free-floating throughout the market were derived from hemp, which does not have the same regulations that cannabis does.”

Hemp is most commonly defined as a legal cannabis product derived from the plant’s stem. Hemp has been used for many different purposes from rope to textile fibers to nutritional supplements to medicinal oils. To be defined as hemp, the product must contain very little THC — less than one percent. For comparison, THC levels in medical cannabis are anywhere between five and 20 percent.

Hemp that contains minimal THC can still contain high amounts of other cannabinoids, like CBD. In Colorado and nationwide, you can walk into a gas station—not even a licensed dispensary— and find CBD products made from hemp. However, these products come from unregulated sources and may pose a public safety hazard.

“[Before December], CBD-only products derived from hemp could be distributed nationwide. You could send CBD in the mail and you could order it on Amazon,” Woods said.

Without the THC, hemp products avoided the strict regulations legal cannabis advocates have fought for.

“On one hand, the [rescheduling] is a step in the right direction in that it forces regulation of this gray market. Like cannabis, it will be up to the State to decide to regulate hemp like cannabis if there is to be an intra-state market. Regulation is good for everyone,” Woods said. “But it is also unfortunate because it was made into a Schedule I drug which only reinforces the federal prohibition on cannabis products… So, there was no real change for the cannabis industry in Colorado, but it has a major impact on the hemp industry.”

HempLife Today Renews its Popular Offer of Free Trial-Pack of CannazALL CBD GelCaps to the General Public

Company to give away 500 Trial-Packs per day

This free offer will be limited to the first 500 people who request it daily and this offer will continue on a daily basis. The Company may increase the number of free Trial-Packs offered daily and will announce this if an increase is made.

Everyone is eligible to receive a free trial size of six (6) CannazALL™ CBD GelCaps by simply clicking on the link or visiting www.HLTFreeOffers.com

This giveaway will continue on a daily basis so for those who are not in the first 500 the Company recommends they check back after midnight eastern the following day to see if they are eligible.

CEO James Ballas said, “Our last Trial-Pack giveaway in April was overwhelmingly positive but was so successful it crashed our site and many people did not have the chance to take advantage. But, by capping this giveaway to the first 500 requests per day we can manage the growth and those who get through will get their free Trial-Pack. This is a great way to get the word out about our products and let people experience them too.”

COO Luke Dreyer added, “After the site crashed last month the Company advanced the previous plan to move the HempLifeToday site to a larger server which was completed and announced on April 13th. Since then we have up to 500% more capacity with up to ten times faster speed, so we can now handle the volume of this offer as it grows and we encourage everyone to spread the word.”

The Company filled over 5,000 orders for its previous giveaway in April within the first 72 hours, and expects to easily be able to reach its limit of 500 per day under this ongoing daily campaign. The Company believes this new campaign will be a strong addition to its marketing platforms and add up to 15,000 customers to its data base monthly.

The Company reserves this offer to one free Trial-Pack per person and two per household, but otherwise encourages everyone to share this giveaway with as many others as possible.

Wisconsin’s legislators recently voted on a proposal that would allow patients with specific conditions to possess and use CBD oil with a physician’s recommendation. At the time there was only one vote against it out of both chambers, which was a big deal after prior legislation a couple years back had been significantly voted against. The proposal was then sent over to Governor Scott Walker, who has just finally signed the bill into law this week, making it official that CBD oil is legal for patients to use in Wisconsin. Walker stated, “Today, we’re making it easier for people in our state to obtain CBD oil without a psychoactive effect to treat a medical condition as advised by their doctor.”

Unfortunately, there are a few downsides to this particular law; the biggest one being a lack of in-state production and dispensing of the oil. The bill did not create any means for licensing cultivation facilities, processing companies or dispensaries; meaning it creates no legal access to the medicine patients so desperately need. It also doesn’t specify where patients are expected to obtain the oil, whereas some states with similar legislation in place have at least made a suggestion, even when that suggestion is to break federal law and cross state lines with the cannabis oil.

Parents with children suffering from seizure conditions may be able to rest easy about what would happen if they were discovered to have CBD oil. However, this bill really doesn’t make as much of a difference as legislators would like to think. Until there is a safe and legal way for patients to access the cannabis oil there will still be the question of how they are supposed to get the medicine once a physician finally gives them the go-ahead for treatment.

In states with CBD laws like this the only option is to get it illegally, either from someone in state on the illegal market or from a state that will accept out of state medical marijuana registration cards. This doesn’t save parents from having to be criminals just to medicate their children. It only provides protection once they are already in possession of the medicine and that’s just not enough. While it is a great thing to see legislators nearly unanimously make the decision to go against allow patients suffering from seizure conditions to use CBD oil, it is honestly not doing enough to really help these patients.

Marijuana may contain a chemical that can help people fight their addiction to cigarettes, according to a study out of Britain. Researchers at the University College London published an article in the journal Addictive Behaviors that discovered that a non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), given via inhaler could dramatically reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by smokers that wanted to kick the habit.

There is an abundance of solid evidence that proves one of the most harmful aspects of cannabis use is the inhalation of burnt plant material. It is not the plant itself that is the problem, it’s the way in which it is burned that causes issues. When marijuana is smoked, it is lit on fire, resulting in combustion at which point the flower or oil reaches almost 800°F or higher. There are two concerns with this. First, the actual heat is not good for the lungs since they aren’t designed to be taking in hot air or smoke. Secondly, when marijuana is burned, it releases cancer-causing compounds like benzene and can lead to tar deposit in the airways.

Vaporization of marijuana results from heating the cannabis plant or concentrate between approximately 250°F and 450°F, with different cannabinoids being released at varying temperature ranges within that interval. The heat level is 2 to 4 times lower than burning it without the benzene release. Celia Morgan, Ph.D. who co-authored the study, explained that CBD may help in a number of ways. One way could be how CBD affects memories, or cues, that hold the desire to smoke. “We found that CBD seems to reduce the salience of cues. It also can reduce anxiety and may affect a memory process called ‘reconsolidation,’ which is when a memory of the reward of smoking is re-activated by seeing someone smoking, it is rendered vulnerable to destruction.” While previous research suggests that CBD can help with a variety of drug addictions, the study was the first to investigate the effect of CBD on cigarette addiction in humans. Twenty-four smokers were recruited and split into two groups, receiving inhalers containing CBD or placebo. Both groups were told to use the inhalers whenever they felt the urge to smoke during a one week period.

The researchers found that while the placebo group showed no difference in their smoking habits, the group that received CBD reduced the number of cigarettes they smoked by almost 40%. Although treatments for cigarette addiction are available today, researchers are still searching for more effective alternatives. CBD seems to be a promising candidate, but Doctor Morgan says it’s hard to draw a direct comparison with other therapies based on the results of her study.

CBD is well-known for its health benefits, especially in treating rare seizure disorders. There are other reasons people try CBD products, also. A neurologist and psychopharmacology researcher, Dr. Ethan Russo, notes in a study that the therapeutic effects of CBD are broad, including: analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiemetic, antioxidant, anti-psychotic, anti-anxiety, anti-convulsant and cytotoxic in certain cancer cells. Typically, CBD products are primarily made from the concentrated extract of the flowers, leaves and possibly stalks of marijuana or hemp. Most CBD products are either oil-based tinctures or capsules that are consumed orally, or topicals applied to the skin. However, there is a growing variety of other products containing CBD, including those for pets.

To find out if CBD would show on a urine drug test, we consulted employment drug testing expert Barry Sample, who is the director of science and technology for Quest Diagnostics. Sample stated, “If the product contains only CBD and has had the THC removed, then an individual being tested would not be expected to test positive for marijuana or marijuana metabolite.” We contacted cannabis health and science researcher, Paul Armentano. Armentano stated, “Not unless those products also contain quantities of THC. Drug tests screen for either THC or the carboxy-THC metabolite, not for CBD.”

Both experts agree; as long as there is no THC in the CBD products, then a urine test would not test positive for THC. There may be minute amounts of THC in CBD products. An aspect in cannabinoid compounds that aids efficacy is the entourage effect. Coined by venerable Israeli cannabis researcher Raphael Mechoulam in 1999, the entourage effect is the belief that the compounds in marijuana work better together than if the compounds are isolated. CBD products, in addition to the CBD cannabinoid, may contain additional cannabis compounds, including THC, to purportedly increase the effectiveness of the product.

CBD oil, a hemp derivative, could be the next treatment for your chronic, acute seasonal allergies. For some time now, self-medicating people have been aware that CBD oil works as a powerful treatment for asthma and COPD by suppressing the symptoms that lead to an attack. Now there is a paper in the journal Pulmonary Pharmacology and Therapeutics to back them up: CBD treatments have proven to stop the decrease of airway flow and make breathing easier. Furthermore, when an allergen was introduced into the subjects, CBD oil helped control the production and behavior of mast cells; the white blood cells that freak out when an allergen enters your body and produce histamines, the part of our immune system that provide the classic effects of allergies: sneezing, rashes, itching, coughing, all the fun stuff.

Other benefits of cannabinoids for allergy sufferers: control inflammation, open the sinus passageways, relieve nasal pressure, manage pain, and induce calmness and sleep. Histamine production is also kicked up when we are super-active or stressed out, but it is mellow when we are mellow, and pretty much stops when we sleep. And remember, CBD is the compound in cannabis that doesn’t get you high, meaning there’s no reason it can’t serve as a regular treatment for these issues. However, if you have the day off, do consider the “entourage effect.” When THC and CBD work together, they both do a better, more complete job. CBD oils or edibles with as little as 3 percent THC will induce this effect without getting you too high.

If you are feeling the effects of spring already starting to kick in, consider blending some locally grown whole-plant CBD-rich oil with a hyper-local honey at a dosage level that allows you to take half a teaspoon a day. Antimicrobial and antibacterial, honey has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Hyper-local honey is created by bees in your city, maybe even your neighborhood, and it contains the pollens you are breathing in daily and possibly reacting to. Taking small doses of honey containing these local pollens can, for some, act as an inoculation against those allergens, reducing or eliminating your reactions to them.
