CBD warns… Asthma needs to be taught a lesson. I say proceed, your highness!

So one of my friends asked how it feels to be asthmatic? Apparently, my lungs didn’t like the question very much. The idiocy of the question literally gave the asthmatic attack of my life.

I really wanted to reply something rude, something that would stop him from repeating the doltishness. But I ended up taking a sarcastic jibe. Not sure if he understood it. I replied “breath-taking. Asthma simply feels breath-taking.”

Then I looked straight into his eyes and asked “Want to have it? No, No! You should also have the privilege to own this beautiful disease. It can break your breath cycle while you’re working, sleeping, or even having sex. What’s more beautiful than getting choked while making love with the love of your life?”

“Let’s do one thing! Let’s buy some smog for your lungs in the nearby polluted town. I’m insisting because it’s absolutely free! Even a stone-broke person of your lot can have it at zero cost and no-emi. And why should I have all the fun alone? Why don’t you buy nature’s cheapest disease plan? All you’ve to do is inhale some healthy flavored pollutants for a good ten days. And Voila! You’ve asthma.”

Believe me. The guy never showed up with stupid questions. But asthma kept coming.

Such is the intensity of asthma that it haunts me unexpectedly. I fear if I would run into another attack playing tennis or swimming and brisk walking. The episodes are so frequent, the symptoms are so irritating, and the medications are so ordinary that sometimes, the asthma attacks feel the new normal.

If you ask me how it feels to be asthmatic, I’ll put it in elementary words. Have you seen those clogged gutters where water tries to get out of the narrow opening? It throws away a lot of tantrums until the reservoir is done with the water. Or the water pressure blasts off the narrow opening until it streams out like a mighty fountain.

That’s daily life for asthmatic patients. Now replace the gutters with airway pipes and water with carbon dioxide. The struggle is quite real. In asthma, carbon dioxide/oxygen struggles to get out/in of the airway pipes because the openings have narrowed down.

Generally, asthmatic bodies have more problems exhaling than inhaling. Let’s say you inhaled X litres of oxygen and your body manipulated it like a mad scientist to produce carbon dioxide within the lungs.

Here’s the catch. Now you only exhaled X minus Y litres of air. So the remaining air remains trapped inside the lungs, breaking your breath cycle.

“But what makes these asthma happen? Is it a last-life’s sin?”

Well, I’m not sure what you did yesterday, let alone the last life. But in the current living dimension, asthma is a result of a hyper-immune system. What? Am I not supposed to beat asthma if my immune system is hyper-strong?

Good question! But you see… having a hypersensitive immune response comes with trade-offs. There’s no easy bargain. You might call yourself lucky to have a good immune response, but they often come with side-effects. One of the biggest issues is severe inflammation.

So when you sweat, sneeze, cough, or wheeze, everything is an immune response. Our bodies like to be in equilibrium. Inflammation is another immune response where our body feels swollen. Not many of us praise it, but it’s inflammation that keeps us alive.

Getting back to the point. Some bodies are not suitable hosts to external allergens and irritants. They dislike foreign immigrants. The only way our bodies jew-down allergens is by swelling-up the airway passage so that you sneeze, cough, or wheeze and throw away these particles from your system.

The idea is to hush-away these allergens from settling in the lungs. Beautiful idea! Isn’t it? But as mentioned, there’s no easy bargain. The inflammation in the lungs tightens the chest, puts pressure in the respiratory system, and causes asthmatic attacks.

Milder to dangerous: you can’t sum up asthma in one category

Life serves asthma in different varieties. Milder to dangerous, you just can’t keep it in a single bracket. You may have minor asthma today, and it’s also very much possible that it becomes a major problem tomorrow.

As if inflammation in the lungs were not enough, the respiratory viruses such as cold and flu make asthma more dangerous. You feel as if a heavy brick lays on your chest with the mucus web floating inside the lungs.

The mucus doesn’t like to be your system. It wants to get out of the systems. So that leads to excessive wheezing and coughing. Sometimes, as hard as your lungs would come out in the blow. Believe me; I never felt as tight in my biceps as I always felt with my chest. Not because I was Hulk Hogan, but the asthmatic mucus bloated my chest.

Anyway, the point is asthma is not good. You don’t want to be its victim. If you do: these symptoms might harass you.

Symptoms of Asthma

  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightening
  • Breathlessness
  • Chronic cough and mucus-full chest
  • Fatigue
  • Waking up tired

Signs of Emergency During an Asthma Attack

  • Regular episodes of breathlessness
  • No chest sounds at all
  • Inhaler seems like a useless device
  • Heavy gasping
  • Finding it hard to speak
  • Extreme shortness of breath
  • Lips turn blue

It turns out I was foolish. Never did I think beyond inhalers and traditional medicines.

When I discovered cbd treatment for asthma, I knew I was living in my limited pool of thoughts. Before the path-breaking discovery (no I didn’t discover it, it found me) I would avoid all the tasks that demanded physical work. Prolly, the reason why my spouse is never happy with me.

I often avoided romantic dates on our anniversaries. The times I couldn’t avoid were made great by my tiny-little savior: the inhalers. They would save my butt and make me sail through important days.

But… but… but! These inhalers behaved oddly when the asthma attacks would go wild. They simply wouldn’t work. Instead, they refused to supply any air when I needed them the most. Medicines were not helping either. The hypersensitivity to allergens annulled these medicines.

Later it turned out I was foolish living with limited options. I had ignored the effective means of treatment altogether. The organic ones! The ones that were naturally made and never had the impeding side-effects as those of manipulated drugs.

CBD for asthma: what is it?

Have you seen those air cylinders? Yes, the ones that are used to pump air into your body, the ones that have become the need of the hour in this pandemic flare-up? Yes? Great!

Cbd is not one of those cylinders. You might think cbd for asthma is a magical cylinder with an infinite air supply, but it’s not.

In fact, cbd has nothing to do with air. So what on earth is cbd? Stop rolling me around. Okay, okay! Well, cbd is cannabidiol.

Remember the times when you pulled out those weed strains from your pocket, rolled them in a paper, and dragged like a never-dying overcharged vacuum cleaner? Sure few of your friends and colleagues must have thought of you as Vito Corleone from the Godfather or the Hitchcock’s epic go-to cigarette model, James Stewart, puffing on the elements. But why did you do that?

So the strains that you pulled out of your pockets had thc— the recreational chemical in your marijuana. You burned and dragged them down for euphoric sessions.

This chemical makes what cannabis is commonly associated with: the naughty psychotropic-ness that gives you a high-quality universal ride without stepping into Northrop Grumman Cygnus spacecraft.

But did you know these herbs also have another chemical, the decent beta guy, who could never make up to your mind’s space? He is cannabidiol (cbd). Technically, cbd has more medical benefits than thc. I initially thought of it as a pseudoscience for most natural drugs talk more than they act.

Soon I realised there’s some link between cbd and asthma. Not that I’m cooking this story. Research is being carried out to find human-controlled observations and results.

Did CBD react the way I wanted to?

I forgot to mention. The same friend suggested cbd oil for asthma. Glad he survived my jibes this time around. Also, I promised not to kill him with my dark humor as his suggestion deserved a Nobel peace prize. At least, we made peace among each other despite his worst rhetorics.

So I was taking cbd oil for asthma attacks for three months. I tell you. I didn’t even bunk a weekend. Never did I show so much seriousness with any schedule. Reason? Dear, oh, dear! Cbd oil was working. He was effing working.

For the first three weeks, I thought it was just another facade with much hype as other organic compounds. Cbd felt like a stooge-doctor who never attended his primary classes but was asked to take this job. But he addressed three critical problems linked with asthma.

And within a few months, I was playing, sleeping, and mating. All— at my will without having to give a flying hoot about breathing condition. Don’t you worry! I will flat out clear them for you, so you get to make thoughtful decisions when it comes to buying cbd. So here are they:

#1 CBD oil and asthma: reduces throat inflammation

The negatives of asthma is: the throat inflammation worsens the condition. Just when you think inflammation in lungs is enough to break your breath-cycle, the strep-throat brings in more problems.

These “mah pipes, mah rules” kinda pipes need some profound lessons. Usually, our bodies are rich in pro-inflammatory cells. We call it cytokines, but for the sake of simplicity and to rule out my laziness, I would call it C.

So these C-cells go absolutely bonkers that causes inflammation in the throat. As a result, you have less air to pull with a tight and hoarse throat.

But cbd is an experienced campaigner. It knows how to control these pro-inflammatory over-enthusiastic cells. Cbd for asthma never felt real until the herb’s anti-inflammatory properties showed these “mah pipe, mah rules” their places.

#2 CBD oil and asthma: loosens-up chest muscles

So my chest tightened up like a gladiator in a battle every time I had to suffer from the asthma attack. The only difference was: I could barely pick up my weight, let those heavy swords and shields sink in. And it got so tight I didn’t need any shield.

Fortunately, cbd oils seemed to have managed chest-tightening very well in these months.

Here’s what happened before taking cbd oil: when the allergens or pollutants got in the body, the inflammatory messengers would go and knock the brain’s door. The sleeping genius would wake up and send an inflammation signal to the lungs. Bronchitis would shrink. The air would feel stuck, and you’ll feel tight on your chest.

But cbd oil prevents these inflammatory messengers from reaching the brain. These pro-inflammatory signals are negotiated mid-way by cbd, and the brain fails to send the inflammation signals.

As a result: cut signals = bronchodilation = clear passage for air flow.

#3 CBD oil and asthma: treats related-conditions

If only asthma was a loner. But it wasn’t! It got draconian when I hit the bed. The bloody breath-disorder led to insomnia. Insomnia further added to my mental misery.

So at the same time, life had dished three problems on my plate. Last time someone served me as strong as this was my neighborhood cafe: he offered triple chocolate blast sonic, and it was terrific. Coincidentally, I ate like a glutton until I choked (back to my usual routine).

But my cbd oil for asthma had suddenly taken a new role as cbd oil for anxiety and cbd oil for my insomnia. It definitely became a not-so-guilty pleasure for me. With asthma getting in check, the stress had dropped, the insomniac-eyes wanted to sleep again.

Even studies reveal that cbd manages asthma, that in turn, manages trains of thoughts to relax you at night. As a result, you sleep like sleeping beauty! A kiss from your love will only awaken you. 😉

How to use CBD oil for asthma. Truth. Be told.

  • Well! Well! It starts with not assuming yourself as a self-appointed expert. You can’t ignore asthma. Period! Don’t be a lazy bummer! Stop scrolling & searching in your favorite search engine. Get those experts to tell you more on cbd oil and asthma.
  • Don’t over-rely on cbd. It’s an alternative mean. But it doesn’t guarantee a permanent cure. Moreover, it may work on your neighbor, but not you. Who knows? Cbd might be biased. So don’t let things slip out of your hands.
  • Some people are allergic to cbd itself. Over-smart lads would have more cbd to treat their cbd allergies, not knowing cbd taste and smell trigger their allergies. So have cbd only when it’s kind and considerate towards you.
  • For all the hypersensitive and touch-me-not kids, please apply cbd to the back of your palm. See if it reacts well with your body. Any deviation from the expected result should invite discarding the bottle in the dustbin, just kidding! Use the charity on your siblings.
  • Cbd treatment for asthma is good, but not the only remedy. Lifestyle, exercises, and diet would combine with our herb oil for the greater good. Don’t ever miss on that.
  • Last but not least. The entire purpose of cbd is to treat asthma. Don’t vape cbd despite high bioavailability. Only a fool would pour more water in a drowning pool.

So let’s sum up everything about CBD and asthma.

  • Lesson number 1… no matter what asthma you have. Cbd oils have benefits over both allergic and non-allergic asthma.
  • Lesson number 2… no matter how Hogan you feel, cbd oils resolve muscle-tightening in the chest.
  • Lesson number 3… no matter how wide-awake you’re, cbd oils dilate your bronchitis and prepare you for a deep slumber.
  • Lesson number 4... no matter how hard inflammation strikes, anti-inflammatory properties of cbd oils will allow air passage and better breath cycle.

Is CBD Legal In India? Everything you need to know about the legal CBD States with a buying guide!

Is CBD Legal In India

Is CBD oil legal in India? The question is no sham!

When the clock strikes 12, and the moon drop bursts, a secret hand comes out from the door. You stand outside that door, and all you see is a person’s silhouette emerging from its slits. And then you go into an imaginative wishful world, asking yourself, “where’s your Santa?”

Had they been real, would they write beautiful and euphoric nights for you? Would they dispatch you to the ecstatic world had you requested them?

Drowned in thoughts, you ultimately stretch your arms forward, leaning towards the door.

And all of a sudden, you realize a packet of herbs falling on your palm. The shock is tough to absorb, but you’re happy having the food Lord Shiva had for ages! And then you quickly flee to your friend’s home, yank out the packet of your pocket, roll it up in a joint, in haste, and drag till both of you meet on the other side of the universal euphoria.

Sounds familiar? Well, this is the mental imagery I form when I think if “cannabis is legal in India or not!” Is hemp really legal in India? Or is it a big no-no? Is it illegally marketed? Or has the government gone soft on it? Here’s what you should know!

Cannabis is more common than you think and less common than the authorities think

Sounds confusing? Well, there’s a general misconception among people when it comes to hemp legality in India. They think it’s outrightly banned in the country when it’s not. But here’s the rub! The authorities think it’s more common among people than they have legalized.

Two contrary beliefs, but who’s right? I’d say both. Here’s the easy breakdown:

Is CBD oil legal in India?

  • Low-THC CBD oil: Legal
  • Bhang: Legal
  • Recreational cannabis: Illegal

If you think about why bhang has the righteousness over recreational cannabis, let me remind you— bhang has a cultural link with India and Indianness. It’s widely used in Hindu religious practices, festivals, and rituals. Though there are regional restrictions, bhang has the upper hand over recreational cannabis.

Coming back to CBD oil. There are two ways to have cannabis oil. Either you have them extracted out of the hemp plant, the plant with a low THC profile. Or have them crude out from cannabis plants, the green herb with high THC content.

Now, what’s the difference between the two?

And why is THC the deciding factor if CBD oil will be legal in India or not?

So cannabis and hemp are siblings. They’re often inter-used, but they are not the same. The brothers and sisters might look similar, but they have different properties regarding their internal chemical structuring.

THC in cannabis is psychotropic in nature. Yes, the very nature that makes you feel “high” when you drag a puff.

But the story is different for hemp plants. They have low-profile THC, which makes them safe for medical consumption. Don’t forget the calmness it induces. All thanks to CBD, which floods between 5 to 25%, depending on the strain type.

Now, why does THC decide the legality of cannabis in India or any place in the world, for a matter of fact?

Well, the in-built nature of THC is demonized in the world. It is believed the psychoactive nature alters the mind and prevents the brain from engaging in clear thoughts. It might also impair cognitive and motor sensation. So more often than not, you’ll find THC-ladened products banned in India.

Don’t forget CBD oil from cannabis is also not legal. It means… hemp CBD oil is the only weed product you can buy in India.

How is the political atmosphere around cannabis?

We’re surprised the Indian politicians took so long to realize the plant they’ve been thinking to pull out of the political misery that has served their cultures in the Vedic era. There’s plenty of history written on it, and cannabis and cannabinoids were considered sacred once.

But the latest changes in cannabis laws at the world level have changed a bit of India’s political spectrum. Maybe they didn’t want to be the last in welcoming essential changes. Anyway, the dramatic turnaround came post-2017.

Though many Indian politicians advocated the legalization of cannabis for medicinal use in 2015, the wind’s real change came in April 2017 when the Indian government nodded a yes license to the Ministry of Health and Welfare for growing industrialized hemp.

The Union Minister of Women and Child Development, Maneka Gandhi, suggested medical Marijuana be legal. The license was granted within a week.

India looks positive to incorporate industrialized hemp production, for the popularity in the CBD market will boost the economy and give people an alternative medical outlook.

If hemp is legal in India, can you buy it online?

buy CBD products onlineYou absolutely can! However, here’s the rub. If only laws were as straightforward. But they aren’t. So you can buy CBD oil India online, but you have to be a little careful at the center and state level.

It’s like… passing the criteria of all the nested rulebooks. You comply with one, the other stops you. You comply with the second; the first stop you. Since laws are ever-changing for Marijuana at federal levels, you have to be informed on your toes, so you don’t violate the rules.

Please investigate the marijuana rulebooks in your land once you’ve decided to make a purchase.

CBD oil India— is it legal to buy them offline?

Yes, you can buy CBD oil from recognized and licensed dispensaries in India. While we advocate online purchase more than offline ones, you must have clarity about the strain’s legality.

Please beware of fake licenses. Marijuana is a dicey product! You may be hearing them getting legalized in your town, but authorities might find reasons to push you to the receiving end.

Check out dispensaries that also have an online presence. This way, you’re reducing the risk of consuming counterfeited products and inviting any trouble. Since marijuana laws are yet to be fully implemented, your place may not be a suitable fit for selling and consuming Marijuana.

In that case, consider moving to places that have legalized cannabis in India.

When does CBD oil qualify to become illegal in India?

The Indian government seems to be following in the same footsteps as the United States. It means… you can only buy, sell, and use CBD in India if it comes out from industrial hemp.

Please note. No other marijuana family-like cannabis is legalized. The strains shouldn’t have more than 0.3% of THC content. The US has the same concentration limit. If you’re consuming anything more than it, the product deems illegal.

Is it legal for you to grow hemp in India?

Is Hemp Legal in India?You already know the answer to “Is hemp legal in India?” But apart from consumption, is hemp cultivation legal in India?

Well, as with the US, India allows growing hemp. The two largest democracies in the world have a very similar take on the plant.

However, it’s illegal to cultivate recreational Marijuana in India. Having said that, you can’t get out of your bed and start growing hemp in your leisure.

It’s not that simple. It’s mandatory to gain a permit and license for your cultivar. If you live in Uttarakhand, you should be amazed knowing it’s the first state to issue hemp cultivation permits.

Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh seem to follow the same steps as they nod for hemp production having THC content less than 0.03%.

Also, an important thing to note. Not all states have a favorable cannabis environment. Before launching a big project, consider data-backed decisions that should include information on the local environment, water availability, temperature, and factors that affect outdoor yield.

But you’ll be happy to know it’s possible to create an artificial growing environment for cannabis. Yes! There’s a massive fad in the United States regarding indoor cultivation.

Only a matter of time, your basement turns into a high-quality weed-making house. You can check on the internet how to grow indoor Marijuana.

Is India an amber country when it comes to marijuana cultivation?

Amber what? Well, that could be your first reaction. Fret not! I had the same reaction when I discovered more on hemp oil legality in India. So what’s the significance of it?

CBD fans in the United States have introduced a color-coding system that covers up cannabis legality in a nutshell. Think like a traffic signal.. What do you do when you see the red light? You know it’s time to stay on the signal. Right? Dare you move from the position.

Likewise, specific colors allotted to each state indicate people the law of the land regarding Marijuana quickly. So they can quickly decide if they really want to move on with consuming Marijuana or respect the law.

While CBD enthusiasts in America have devised this color-coding system for their simplicity, we can apply the same model across the world to uniformize the information on marijuana legality.

Or at least, with a minor adjustment, we can analyze how CBD interacts with a particular nation. It will also get more manageable for you to recognize “is hemp oil legal in India?

Take a look at these color coding:

  • What does the Green color say?

          All CBD products are legal without any strict laws or restrictions.

  • What does the Amber color say?

           Only hemp-derived CBD products are legal. And the countries are considering cannabis-derived products. Kind of… positive outlook towards cannabis extracts. This is where India falls where they’re considering cannabis-derived products for more research.

  • What does the Amber-red color say?

            Hemp-derived products are only legal for medicinal use. Furthermore, cannabis-derived products are stigmatized, and the countries have a negative outlook towards their use.

  • What does the Red color say?

The strictest of all, all CBD products are banned in the country. The offense could vary from milder ones like minor wrongdoing to extreme ones like death penalties.

Stay alert! Hemp seed oil is not equal to CBD oil.

Since hemp oil is legal in India, you might think hemp seed oil = CBD oil. You might as well fall for the trick. But should you? No!

Hemp seed oil comes from the hemp seed, whereas CBD oil comes from everything but the hemp plant’s seeds. It could be buds, leaves, and stems. But not seeds.

While both the oils have their share of advantages and disadvantages, they have various health benefits as well. Hemp seed oils are good for your body, but they won’t have the exact effect you’d want from CBD oils.

The reason is: hemp seed doesn’t have much cannabidiol. So you may not benefit from the anti-inflammation and anti-oxidative properties.

Be careful while buying CBD oil in India, even with big brands. They market hemp seed oils as CBD extract and can fool you into buying an ineffective product for your health.

Where can you buy CBD oil in India?

Both online and offline options are available for buying CBD in India. You might even feel tempted to get it offline in the nearest store, but trust us, CBD is not the same as buying vegetables.

You may want to touch it and feel it, but the quality can still deceive you. I would instead ask you to go for online buying with positive reviews.

List of offline CBD store in India

  • CBD Store India
  • Hemp Horizons Pvt. Ltd.

List of online CBD stores in India

  • Charlotte’s Web
  • CBDistillery
  • Endoca
  • cbdMD

The final call on CBD legality in India

Look! India is the next United States. Not just in terms of development, but the way it maneuvers CBD laws in the market. We have plenty of American history to learn how Marijuana evolved into one of the USA’s most oversized economic wheels.

The same can be applied to India! If not today, the CBD oil market is indeed booming in five years. You have a great opportunity not only to be a consumer but also a canna-entrepreneur.

Can CBD Save You From Lack of Nutrients?

Nutritional benefits from CBD & hemp

We’re not a big fan of calling CBD the “naked medicinal alternative.”


They’re way more than that.

Yes, our brains don’t think of these mind-soothing cannabis components as nutrient-giving stuff.

But you’ll be hell surprised knowing their nutritional benefits apart from general wellness.

Don’t worry! 

You all know everything about CBD wellness and nutrition in this post. 

We’ll break it down for you, right from scratch.

What is cannabis?

You’ve probably already heard of a big “no-no” leaf.

“Hey, kid, don’t go near that leaf.”

“They truly kill people, drive them crazy, and snatch their senses.”

But listen!

Everything you’ve heard is… the.. time… to… delete from your head.

Because these “high-giving” leaves are way more stigmatized than they should be.

The stigma feels weird because they’re not always psychotropic but also therapeutic. 

But you won’t hear the success stories as much as you’d hear the dark stories about it.

All hail propagandas!

So cannabis plants have two types: hemp and marijuana

There’s a reason why hemp makes it legal in all 50 states.

This variant of cannabis doesn’t have THC but high-quality cannabinoids called CBD.

And the reason why marijuana fails to make it to most states is its psychoactive properties (led by more than 0.03% of THC).

While you gain the health benefits of cannabinoids in hemp, you go blazing high with the cannabinoids of marijuana.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

When we say marijuana is rich in THC, it doesn’t mean the plant is devoid of CBD. 

It has the calming cannabinoids but in trace amounts.

Similarly, hemp has THC in tiny details. 

It’s kind of a miracle how cannabis has two variants acting utterly contrary to each other.

THC sends you to the universal euphoric rides.

But mind you! These rides can often turn intoxicating and intolerating for many.

On the other hand— CBD is intoxicating and well-tolerated by almost anyone.

You can think of both the cannabinoids as siblings annoyed with each other.

If you’ve overdosed THC, you can consume CBD to mute THC’s psychoactive effects.

When you take THC over CBD, the former also tries to regulate CBD’s calming effect.

Fortunately, medicinal hemp gets the better of recreational marijuana most of the time.

So it’s advisable when you go high, have the best cannabis products (cbd-dominant) to get your feet back to earth.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

So the entire cannabis game is played on the endocannabinoid pitch!

These pitches are dispersed all over your body, mainly in the brain and the central nervous system

The pitch has many players (receptors).

They play different roles, including pain-relieving, appetite modulation, mood upliftment, and memory-sharpening actions.

But these receptors need something to interact with as they don’t go triggered without any reason.

Our bodies produce cannabinoids to stimulate these receptors and help functions like motor and cognition.

But like any other system, the endocannabinoid systems need a break to rest.

Does that mean you don’t walk or have your pain suppressed? No!

In such cases, we introduce external cannabinoids from hemp and the best cannabis products.

So does your body produce cbd?

No, it doesn’t. But it produces a similar structure with that of the natural cannabinoids (anandamide).

When cannabinoids, mainly CBD, interact with these players, you feel the pain swept away.

The fact our bodies have endocannabinoid systems says we have been consuming cannabinoids for civilizations.

It falls as a strong argument presented by the pro-marijuana people.

Yawn? Yawn? Fret not! We’re finally covering CBD nutrition.

What is nutrition, and why do our bodies need nutrients?

When you run around the fancy vegetable, fruit, and meat stores for healthy food consumption, you’re actually trying to survive. 

It’s called nutrition!

Nutrition is nothing but the process of obtaining high-quality food for your growth and nourishment.

Every food has different levels of nutritional value— credits to the tiny-organic nutrients present in them.

Having nutrients is like giving nutritional therapy to your body.

Please don’t underestimate the sizes of this organic stuff, for they may look small, but you exist because they exist.

Nutrients are like breakfast and dinner for all the cells in the body.

Your cells need them— by hook or crook— to execute body functions.

Although our bodies are smart enough to manufacture many nutrients, they need some from external sources.

Take examples of proteins.

Proteins are vital nutrients for recovering your cells and tissues. 

When you run out of gas after an intense workout session, the protein nutrients recover the muscles and give you the needed energy.

But it would have been great if our bodies knew manufacturing these proteins. 

But they don’t!

So you give them using CBD nutritional supplement.

Does CBD have nutritional value?

spoon with nutritious food

It’s the question we’re trying to answer! 

If CBD diet has nutritional value, isn’t it healthy food?

Well! There’s no doubt we need more solid research on it.

But it doesn’t mean we don’t have any research so far.

Most of the plant-based diets are known to have essential protein and vitamins.

Cannabidiol got to have something, if anything, as it’s also a part of green herb.

Had it been Spinach or any other leafy food, we could have safely agreed to it.

But people are afraid to admit it firmly for CBD for the apparent reasons— they don’t want to end up in jail.

Imagine asking people to “eat spinach” and fearing for their lives. It only happens in dreams!

Now imagine asking people to “consume CBD” to get over their skeletal bodies. 

The feary-nightmare can knock on your door anytime (in the form of authorities).

What does the nutritional finding in CBD show?

No matter the limited research, CBD comes up as a brilliant source of amino acids.

You must be wondering: Amino acids are not nutrients.


They are not because they’re more vital than proteins. You heard it right!

Since they’re the building blocks of nutrients such as proteins, they’re far more critical than the nutrients themselves.

Actually, proteins are like necklaces having a series of beads.

These beads are nothing but amino acid molecules.

Now you know how crucial these beads are!

For healthy living, our bodies need 20 amino acids.

Each amino acid forms its individual chain, birthing different types of protein.

Imagine twenty types of amino-acid chains birthing different proteins and working in your body, synergistically, to give meaning to your life. 

Amazing how they work in cooperation! Isn’t it?

But here’s the rub! 

Our body only produces nine amino acids, eleven less than the required nutrients!

Ask yourself: who’s going to give the other eleven? You? Me? The government?

Hell no! The answer is any CBD product such as CBD oil.

Does CBD have amino acids?

benefits of enzymes

It’s no surprise the therapeutic genius has all the twenty amino acids.

Having all TWENTY amino acids is an achievement in itself.

It means you don’t have to look around, searching for these building blocks of proteins in multiple sources.

You get everything under one shed.

Try to have CBD either in your daily recipes or through pills or any other sublingual mediums.

It’s only a matter of time the body homes all the amino acids.

Look! An adult body needs 56 grams of proteins per day.

Are you giving yourself enough protein? 

They are for clotting your blood, balancing the body fluid, and activating the immune system.

If you don’t hear the nutrients’ call— you might have a hard time catching life.

Fortunately, cbd effects on body as a protein source have been studied for a long time. 

It solves a lot of problems.

Does CBD have vitamins?

Glass Of Water And Medicine Capsules

Unlike proteins, vitamins are micronutrients.

There’s a clear difference between the two. 

We need proteins in huge quantities— the reason why we call them macronutrients. 

But we don’t need vitamins as much as proteins.

Though we need all the vitamins for body function, their presence in micrograms is enough.

As with amino acids, sadly, we can only make a couple of vitamins.

What about the other 11 vitamins (there are a total of 13 vitamins)?

Again, CBD comes out as an excellent source for these additional vitamins required for our body.

To make a stronger case, CBD also offers certain minerals to balance the body’s normal functioning.

Here’s what you get with extracted CBD oils:

  1. Vitamin A
  2. Vitamin C
  3. Vitamin E
  4. Vitamin B6
  5. Vitamin B12
  6. And other B-complex vitamins
  7. zinc 
  8. potassium 
  9. calcium 
  10. phosphorus 
  11. iron 
  12. magnesium

If you’re a vegan or vegetarian looking to nail your nutritional diet without animal-sources— CBD can come in handy for you all.

So what did you learn, folks?

You learned… our bodies heavily rely on nutrients to survive. Unfortunately, animals and plants have more skills than we. They bloody know how to make all the essential nutrients on their own. We have limited skills at this level. So we need external nutrient sources like CBD to take care of our health.

You learned… we have a unique system in our nervous system and brain, named after cannabinoids— the endocannabinoid system. They’re useful for managing homeostasis and balancing our bodies.

You learned… we can’t produce all the amino acids and vitamins in the body. So we need something to rely on. And what is a better all-green solution than CBD products?

You learned… how marijuana and hemp differ from each other, also, how thc and cbd have contrary functions in the body.

How to Increase Focus and Energy Naturally

Natural Ways to increase focus and energy

It’s easy to get distracted and lose focus. Sometimes we can get back on track, and sometimes, we need a little help. If you’re stuck in a rut and not sure how to get your life back in focus, then try some of these tips.

Reduce Stress Levels

The first thing you must do to improve your focus is reduce your stress levels. Stress increases cortisol levels in your body, which affects your brain. This can detract from your ability to stay focused. When you’re stressed out, you consume tremendous amounts of energy. So, work on yourself. Most people can lower stress levels with a steady self-care routine, which includes moderating stressful activities, meditation, a healthy diet, and regular exercise.

Increase Regular Exercise

Exercise is a great way to drain toxins from your system, while also increasing your other chemicals to healthier levels. When you exercise regularly, your cells become better at circulating oxygen. In addition, your dopamine levels will increase, which translates into a great mood boost. With all of these things working in sync, you’ll find it easier to stay focused. And, regular exercise makes it easier for you to sleep through the night.

Optimize Your Sleep

Believe it or not, sleep optimization isn’t always about getting more sleep. Sometimes, it’s about focusing on quality, rather than quantity. If you spend too much time awake in bed, you’ll likely have poor quality sleep, and that results in less focus during the day when you need it most. In order to optimize your sleep, you need to figure out how many hours your body needs on a daily basis. So, do a small experiment. Avoid naps and cut back to just four hours of sleep on the first night. Then, on each consecutive night, add another 30 minutes of sleep and keep track of how you feel. The goal is to fall asleep quickly, sleep soundly, and wake up refreshed and focused. Once you find yourself laying in bed awake, dial it back a half hour and you’ve likely got the right duration. On the other hand, if you’re having trouble sleeping, then consider a sleep aid like CBD.

Moderate Caffeine Intake

Like any other drug, caffeine can be unhealthy when you overdo it. However, in moderation, it can help you to stay focused. One cup a day can trigger your mind into a focused state. Just keep in mind that if you drink coffee too late in the day, or if you consume too much caffeine, you could experience lots of side effects. For starters, you may lose that precious sleep and battle a case of insomnia. Eventually, your body could become dependent on caffeine. When that happens, you’ll have to consume it just to feel normal, rather than focused. And if you skip a day, you could experience headaches or other withdrawal symptoms. Instead of drinking coffee every day, consider alternating with a caffeine substitute.

Try Caffeine Substitutes

Caffeine isn’t the only mild stimulant that you can consider as part of your self-care routine. One alternative is kratom. It comes from the dried leaves of a tropical plant in the coffee family. A popular strain is super green malay powder and in small amounts, people report a mild stimulating effect. Just keep in mind that kratom is not approved by the FDA and there are very few peer reviewed studies on its efficacy and safety. So, make sure you do your research if you decide to explore it. There is a loyal community of kratom users who report that small doses will produce a stimulating effect, while larger doses will act more like a sedative. With that in mind, don’t overdo it with kratom, as too much can make you lose focus.

Moderate Alcohol Consumption

It’s fine to drink alcohol on occasion, but too much can be detrimental to your health, and your ability to stay focused. If you find that you’re losing focus, then try cutting back on your alcohol consumption. Not only does alcohol interfere with your ability to focus, but it can lower the quality of your sleep. And, too much alcohol can impact your physical health too. It can affect your organs and if it’s high in sugar, it can result in weight gain and obesity.

Eat Low Sugar Foods

High sugar foods are absorbed into your bloodstream quickly. In the short term, they can give you a boost of energy. But, you’ll quickly crash. Instead, aim for foods with a low glycemic index. This means that they’re generally low in simple sugars, and they’ll absorb into your system more slowly, to give you sustainable energy. Proteins, fats, and high fiber foods are great choices.

Explore Natural Ways to Increase Your Focus Today

Now that you know how to increase your focus the natural way, it’s time to get started. Pick out any of the items on this list and apply them in your everyday life. The more you practice self-care, the healthier you will become, and the more focused you’ll feel when it matters most.

Breastfeeding and the Usage of Cannabis

Breastfeeding and the Usage of Cannabis While Pregnant

Since the legalization of cannabis in many US states, consumption of the drug has skyrocketed across almost all demographics. In fact, a recent study reported that around 9% of American women now smoke marijuana regularly, where another survey conducted in California found 7% of pregnant women were cannabis users. This begs the question, should women be smoking cannabis while pregnant?

In addition to this, if you have recently become a mother and have managed to make it through pregnancy without consuming marijuana, you may be wondering whether it is now safe to consume during the breastfeeding stage.

Unfortunately, the research on this topic is relatively thin, and thus, the studies do not provide a concrete conclusion to the question. However, in this article, we have gathered the information available to answer whether it is safe to smoke weed while breastfeeding, what effects it may have on the child, and whether it is safe to use products containing CBD. Let’s get into it.

Is it safe to smoke weed while breastfeeding?

Although the studies on this subject are not extensive enough to make a proper judgment, it is advised by many doctors to avoid cannabis while breastfeeding. Why so? Well, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound in weed that makes you high, is stored in fat cells in the body. As breast milk is made from the mother’s body fat, it is believed that the THC is transferred into the milk, which is then consumed by the infant.

Studies have shown that THC remains present in breast milk even after long periods of time. One study that looked at the breastmilk of 8 women who were abstaining from cannabis for a six week period found that the breast milk still contained THC throughout the whole six weeks of abstinence.

Therefore unlike alcohol, which is excreted from the body within a few days, a mother’s milk may be affected detrimentally by cannabis use for a considerable period of time after the initial consumption.

Effects of marijuana on the infant

As cannabis is a mind-altering drug (thanks to the THC compound), it is believed to have an adverse effect on a child’s brain development. Some studies have shown that exposure to cannabis during the developmental stages of life can significantly change the brain. Reports have shown notable problems with motor skills, strength, intellectual development, as well as specific learning and memory tasks later in life, although these conclusions have been drawn based on results found during animal testing.

Another research study has suggested that early exposure of THC to the brain can affect cerebellar development. Since abnormal cerebellar development is associated with an increased chance of schizophrenia later in life, this could be a risk factor.

Consumption may also make the baby fatigue more easily, meaning it is likely to sleep more and consume less milk. This will result in a slower weight gain and slower development of the child. In babies that are premature or underweight, this is dangerous because the child needs as many nutrients as possible so that it can grow to a healthy weight as soon as possible.

There is also the chance that cannabis contains other harmful chemicals, especially in the case of street drugs. Even cannabis from a marijuana dispensary can potentially contain pesticides that may be harmful to a baby. It is, therefore, safer to avoid these products altogether.

Secondary issues

In addition to this, it’s important to consider secondary factors that can impact the child, such as the detrimental effects of second-hand smoking and impaired judgment of the caregiver.

Second-hand smoking is especially dangerous if the cannabis is smoked openly with tobacco, which contains substances that are known to be harmful and can cause illnesses such as cancer and other respiratory issues. Secondly, the cannabis user themselves will have impaired judgment once they become intoxicated, which can affect their ability to care for the child appropriately.

CBD oil and breastfeeding?

CBD oil, or cannabidiol to give it its proper name, is derived from cannabis and is a separate component to THC. Therefore, it does not make you high, although some CBD products have been found to contain traces of THC.

CBD oil is used for its medicinal purposes and is known to help control seizures, relieve anxiety, stress, and depression, and help with skin ailments such as acne.CBD oil products generally come in dab containers and are quite popular as they are designed for skin and medical application.

Again, the research on this is rather thin; however, many doctors believe CBD is unsafe for a developing child to consume because of the unknown effects it may have on their development.

In Summary

While the jury is still out on this one, it’s safe to say that the general consensus suggests avoiding all cannabis consumption while breastfeeding your child. Many doctors and medical associations, including the American Medical Association (AMA), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), agree that it is safer to stay away from marijuana during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The long-term effects of marijuana on your child are still uncertain, so when it comes to your child’s welfare, it is better to play it safe and avoid these products altogether.
