Cannabinoids like CBD and THC are hydrophobic, which means they are oily and tend to repel water or fail to mix with it. With the help of a little science, we can make CBD form that is nearly water-soluble. CBD water is made using a process called nanotechnology, which uses sound waves to break up CBD clusters into micro-sized particles that are smaller than 100 nanometers. The nano-sized nutrients available in CBD water soar past the blood-brain barrier and penetrate cells immediately, allowing for nearly 100% bioavailability and absorption.
Portable electronic vaporizers or "vape pens" are becoming increasingly popular because they are a convenient, discreet, and presumably benign way to administer cannabinoids like CBD. Vaporizing CBD has many benefits, including increased bioavailability and the faster onset of the effects, but what if any are the risks? Do you know what you are actually inhaling?
In this article, we discuss vaporizers, what CBD is and it's benefits, and the benefits and risks of vaporizing CBD.
Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is a medical disease that usually impacts adults over the age of 50. It causes a loss of vision in the macula (the center of the visual field) because of the damage that has occurred to the retina. The early stages of age-related macular degeneration may be experienced without any noticeable symptoms; however, a gradual or sudden change in the quality of your vision may be the first sign of the condition. While multiple FDA treatments exist, there may be serious side effects associated with their use. Correlations have been cited between the healing power of CBD and the workings of age-related macular degeneration. Can CBD be used to treat age-related macular degeneration? Can CBD relieve the symptoms of age-related macular degeneration?
In this article, we discuss age-related macular degeneration, the commons symptoms of age-related macular degeneration, common triggers for age-related macular degeneration, conventional treatments for age-related macular degeneration, what CBD is, and treating age-related macular degeneration with cannabinoids.
Osteoporosis is a very common medical condition that afflicts at least 54 million people, and there are 3 million new cases in the United States each year. The condition causes bones to become weak and brittle. When osteoporosis occurs, the creation of new bone doesn't keep up with the removal of old bone. All races are affected by osteoporosis, but white and Asian women, particularly older post-menopausal women, have the highest risk. CBD has been shown to improve bone metabolism and therefore help to replace old tissue with new tissue at a healthy rate, which is important for maintaining strong bones.
In this article, we discuss current treatments for osteoporosis, improving bone regeneration with CBD, and the scientific support for using CBD as a treatment for osteoporosis.
