CBD Treatment for Diabetes

CBD Gold Oil 25%Hemp OIl Gel TubesFive-year study shows CBD oil helps treat diabetes

With CBD use on the rise, many doctors are questioning whether they should prescribe the plant compound for diabetes to help patients cope with the symptoms and even fight the disease itself.

Dr. Allan Frankel, an M.D. with Greenbridge Medical, wrote onOCCNewspaper recently about the experiences and successes he’s had treating his diabetes patients with CBD oil, concluding that it can help with both the treatment of the disease itself, as well as aiding the day to day management of diabetes related symptoms like inflammation and joint pain.

“For certain, it is worth a try.”

CBD Oil For Diabetes: What Do Patients Say?

We spoke to Pete Jarlett, a diabetes patient to get a personal view on how CBD oil for diabetes can be beneficial. He has been treating his diabetes with a combination of a Ketogenic diet (healthy fats) and CBD oil, on the advice of Dr. Joseph McCall and HoneyColony cofounder Maryam Henein.

“Overall, I feel a million times better, but everyone has to make their own decision. I feel strong and I’m getting my energy back.”

Jarlett even enjoys cooking with CBD oil although temperature is important to consider to not destroy the healing properties.

“You can even elevate the CBD oil at the pinnacle with other oils. Once you can work it into your diet it can be so easy.”

Diabetes: Relentless Rise

Diabetes refers to the group of metabolic disorders characterized by high blood glucose levels; almost 400 million people worldwide suffer from either type one or type two diabetes and it kills up to 5 million people every year. Type one diabetes is caused by an autoimmune attack on the islet cells in the pancreas (which produce insulin), while type two diabetes develops as a result of defective insulin production and insulin resistance.

Diabetes rates are on the rise, due in part to the high levels of sugar consumptionin today’s society, although other factors can contribute, such as Epstein Barr virus and toxins in our food and air supply. Because of the heightened burden on the medical infrastructure, there has been a bigger push towards innovative techniques to treat the disease, rather than simply managing it with insulin shots. CBD oil might be one such treatment. Since 2005 there has been an explosion in research surrounding diabetes and the use of CBD as a form of treatment; Project CBD is dedicated to compiling data and research relating to the effects of CBD on diabetes sufferers.

The 2005 research paper from the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC) lists numerous benefits that both CBD and cannabis can have for diabetes sufferers including:

  • Stabilizing blood sugars
  • Arterial anti-inflammatory properties
  • “Neuroprotective” effects that help prevent inflammation of nerves and reduce the pain of neuropathy
  • “Anti-spasmodic agents” help relieve muscle cramps and the pain of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders
  • Acting as a “vasodilator” to help keep blood vessels open and improve circulation
  • Lowering blood pressure — which is vital for diabetics
  • Helping calm diabetic “restless leg syndrome” (RLS
  • cbd for diabetesDiabetes is the name used to refer to a cluster of metabolic disorders characterized by the prolonged presence of high glucose levels in the blood. There are about 400 million of people that are affected by diabetes worldwide, and year after year, its prevalence continues to rise. Various treatments for diabetes are available. Recently, significant evidence was found suggesting positive effects of (Cannabidiol) CBD for diabetes.

    What is Diabetes?

    Diabetes or diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases targeting the metabolic processes and characterized by the high blood glucose levels. The two most common forms of diabetes is the Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.  In both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, the elevated blood glucose levels soon lead to metabolic and non-metabolic complications.

    • Type 1 Diabetes

    This type of diabetes is often diagnosed in individuals aged below 30. It often involves an autoimmune attack on the pancreas’s islet cells. These are the cells in the body that produces insulin. There are about 10% of diabetics suffering from Type 1 diabetes worldwide.

    • Type 2 Diabetes

    The Type 2 diabetes is more common compared to Type 1 diabetes. This type of diabetes mostly affects individuals who aged over 40 and those who are obese. Type 2 diabetes is mostly the result of insulin resistance combined with defective insulin production.

    CBD for Diabetes: Treatment for Disease and Symptoms

    CBD for DiabetesIn the recent years, numerous cannabis researches are being conducted so as to find its said health benefits. In all these researches conducted, it has been said that cannabis has many significant effects in various diseases including diabetes. There are millions of people that are affected by diabetes across the world.

    With researches and studies conducted saying that cannabis has significant positive effect in treatment and control of the disease, it is truly an interesting subject. Well then, what are these said positive effects of CBD for diabetes? How does Cannabidiol help patients suffering from the different symptoms of diabetes?

    Studies in mice have shown that the incidence of diabetes in non-CBD-treated mice was significantly reduced from 83% to 30% when treated with CBD. Treatment with CBD also shows a significant reduction in plasma levels of proinflammatory cytokines (IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha.)

    The production of Th1-associated cytokine from in vitro activated T cells and peritoneal macrophages was also significantly reduced in the mice treated with CBD. While the production of IL-4 and IL-10 (Th2-associated cytokines) was increased compared to mice not treated with CBD.

    The histological examination of CBD-treated mice on the pancreas showed significantly reduced insulitis. Sourcehttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16698671

    Controling Diabetes

    Diabetes is connected with high levels of the fasting insulin, insulin resistance and low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). In the past year, a study on cannabis’s effects on fasting insulin and insulin resistance shows that cannabis users have lower fasting insulin levels.

    This is compared to those that have never used cannabis before. In addition, those who have used cannabis long before but is not current users have similar but less pronounced low level fasting insulin. This indicates that the cannabis’ protective effect fades after some time.

    Excluding diabetics, researches still found that current cannabis users have reduced levels of insulin resistance and fasting insulin. This shows that not only cannabis helps in controlling the symptoms of diagnosed diabetics but also in preventing its occurrence in the first place.

    Insulin Resistance

    Insulin ResistanceWhen cells start to reject the body’s normal mechanism known as insulin, it is a condition called insulin resistance or IR.

    Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas and is essential in regulating glucose metabolism.

    Insulin resistance is linked with Type 2 diabetes where the insulin production is not affected, the cells cannot process it.

    With the cells becoming resistant to insulin, they become unable to absorb glucose which is needed in supplying the body with energy. When the unused glucose in the bloodstream builds up, this eventually leads to development of hyperglycemia. In the recent studies on CBD for diabetes, it has been found that cannabis users have blood glucose in significantly low levels compared to cannabidiol non users.

    Nerve Damage

    Nerve DamageAs a result of the disease, patients often experience nerve disorders.

    The nerve damage induced by diabetes often affects the extremities such as hands and feet.

    But they may also affect any organ or in any region of the body.

    Diabetes’s nerve damage can be symptomless but in most cases, there is pain, numbness and tingling that accompanies it.

    Treating diabetic neuropathy with conventional analgesics can be difficult. However, evidences were found that cannabis might also help in the treatment of diabetes-induced nerve damage. Cannabidiol extracts comes with pain-reducing effects and this was shown to have pronounced effect in neuropathy induced by diabetes.

    In the study conducted related to CBD for diabetes and neuropathy, it seems like repeated administration has positive effect on mechanical allodynia and was also found to restore normal pain perception. CBD was found to have positive effects on nerve pain, protecting the liver from oxidative stress and restoring nerve growth factor back to normal levels.

    Weight Gain

    Weight gain and obesity are both connected to diabetes risks. As obesity is associated with diabetes, many studies on cannabis’s effects on weight gain has been conducted. But these studies all have conflicting results that has made it difficult to establish how cannabis can help with diabetes in relation to weight gain.

    However, a recent study shows that after being exposed to organic cannabis extract, obese rats lost weight significantly as well as gained an increase in pancreas’ weight. This shows that the presence of cannabinoids protect the beta cells of pancreas. This may help in controlling the disease as an autoimmune response destroys beta cells in type 1 diabetes.

    Retinopathy

    diabetic-retinopathyMajority of diabetics acquire diabetic retinopathy after a long time of struggling with the disease. Diabetic retinopathy (DRP) is a complication wherein the cells of the retina become progressively damaged over time. The complication is related with breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier in the eyes preventing substances in the blood to enter the retinal tissue.

    The breakdown of the retinal barrier is induced by glucose and is the cause for the neural tissue becoming exposed to neurotoxins. In addition, the blood-retinal barrier’s breakdown increases the chance of retinal bleeding. There is evidence found that cannabidiol can help in diabetes retinopathy as it is capable of combating inflammation and oxidative stress.

    Both of these play a role in retinal cells’ breakdown. In the studies conducted in the relationship of diabetic retinopathy and cannabis, the results were quite positive in showing that cannabis is capable of significantly reducing neurotoxicity as well as oxidative stress. With that, the death of retinal cells as well as blood-retinal barrier’s breakdown can very well be prevented.

CBD IS AN HERBAL THERAPY THAT MANY ARE TURNING TO TODAY TO GET THE WELLNESS BACK IN LIFE.

It is the age of Information and many folks are waking up to the knowledge and science behind CBD Herbal Therapy.  When I first began taking CBD Hemp oil for my 4th Stage Kidney Failure it was 4 years ago. Wow! How time flys. We began our company due to the results I received from my use of CBD. I could not believe that anything would be able to give me back a good overall feeling in my body once again. But CBD surprised me!

For example, just to be able to stay up past 5 pm was amazing to me. Oh! but I was given so much more. My whole body got better over the longer I took CBD.

Talk about health conditions, UGH!

My Stress test was considered normal even though I have a pacemaker from the kidney failure. My LDL and HDL were normal and that had not happened for 8 years. I was unable to take the medicines the doctors wanted me to take to lower my Cholesterol. But after just one year of taking CBD Pure Hemp Oil gel in the tube, My Cholesterol, & Suger were within normal limits. The doctors were baffled.

Oh! It was not easy! I worked at it very hard. I did not want to live my life on dialysis. I wanted to be able to put off any surgery or dialysis for as long as possible. I researched, I followed a low protein diet. At Stage 5 kidney failure, I began to use other herbs I had researched from my acupuncturist. The Chinese herbs are what I chose as I journeyed through my 5th stage kidney failure. I was able to maintain my activity with this protocol.

I know that folks are tired of reading what other people have experienced with their health stories. It sometimes sounds like a heal all, Blah, Blah, Blah. But it has to be this way to show folks that CBD Hemp Oil is not a joke! It does and has worked as an herbal therapy for many, many years and many, many people! Wake Up! Check it out!

You can find a natural doctor who can help you understand what herbs are all about!

CBD Hemp Oil and Kidney Transplant

On November 11, 2017, I received a Kidney Transplant at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Alabama. At the time they called me for the surgery My general kidney function number was at 14 and my Creatinine level was at 4 which is really not that high. There are many folks that go in for a kidney transplant and their numbers are GFR 8 & Creatinine is at 9 or higher. I was truly blessed. The CBD Hemp oil I had been taking along with the herbs and diet had preserved my other organs so I was a good candidate for a Kidney Transplant.

Overall I had battled kidney disease since I was 50 years old. At the time of my surgery, I was 65 years old. I was so thankful my health was good for the surgery! Now I am back on my CBD again. Yep, the Pharmacologist at the hospital did a study for me. The best words I ever heard were when he came into my room and said: “Well, as it turns out, from what I found, CBD is good for transplants!” I think I could have jumped out of my bed and danced a jig. But I cheered instead!

So now I am in recovery and doing very well, I am taking my CBD 2 hours after I take my anti-rejection medicines, twice a day. On my 3-month clinic visit, they removed me from 3 of my medicines and that was not to happen until I was at least 6 months in recovery. I am working at my desk and sharing what I can with the Science of CBD Hemp Oil with others. The adventure continues……..

BE AWARE OF THE CBD HEMP OIL YOU PURCHASE!

There are many companies out there now selling CBD Hemp OIL products. Beware! Make sure you do your research on your purchase of CBD Hemp Oil Products before you buy. Things to ask.” How much CBD Hemp OIl is in this product?”Or: “Do you have Lab reports on your website?”. Another question is:” Is this Hemp OIl from Hemp seed oil or CBD Cannabis plants with low dose THC?” The Hemp Seed Oil does not contain the cannabinoids that are needed in the herbal therapy of CBD. It has been shown that Hemp seed oil does not have the same effect at the real CBD Co2 processed from the Hemp plant itself.

If you get a free sample card in the mail throw it away!

There is no free CBD Hemp OIL! One company is taking people’s information and set them up for a subscription. Then they take monthly payments out of your bank or credit card. Some folks have not even received the Products they paid for. No phone numbers can be found for the company that provided you the sample. This is a Rip Off for sure.! We have had over one hundred calls from folks that think that we are the company that provided them with their “free sample card or product”.  Because Wellnesshempoil.com sounds close to what name they are using. We have contacted the correct review companies to tell them the truth about this scam.

What Wellness CBD means to me.

Wellness Hemp OIL is a compassionate care company. We do our best to service our clients and provide research on their health issues for them to choose what they want to do. We do not play doctor. We will help folks find a natural doctor to see. We feel that an educated client is an empowered client and will make better decisions about their health care. Blessings to you and yours until my next adventure life awaits!

Study Finds Epilepsy Patients Feel Better After Daily CBD Regimen

Study Finds Epilepsy Patients Feel Better After Daily CBD Regimen

(AbzalovAyrat/iStock)

WASHINGTON DC — Patients with intractable epilepsy in Alabama felt better overall one year after initiating a daily cannabidiol (CBD) regimen, according to a study presented here, despite also reporting declining social support and more stressful events over the course of the year.

Epilepsy patients started taking daily doses of CBD. One year later, a significant number felt better.

The state-funded study did not directly assess CBD’s impact. “I can’t say that” CBD was a factor, said lead researcher Barbara Hansen, now a sociology professor at Henderson State University (Arkansas). She did confirm that every patient in the study was indeed administered CBD, when she spoke to Leafly.com at the American Epilepsy Society annual meeting earlier in December.

Intractable epilepsy is “a seizure disorder in which a patient’s seizures fail to come under control with treatment,” according to the University of Rochester Medical Center. The seizures are also referred to as “refractory” or “uncontrolled.”

Researchers with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (where Hansen was then a doctoral student) enrolled patients in April 2015 in an open-label study, distributing 100 mg/ml CBD solutions. The participants took initial doses of 5 mg of the solution per each kg they weighed every day, via twice-daily spoonfuls. Patients could increase their daily dosage by 5 mg every two weeks, up to a maximum of 50 mg per kg per day.

Heart Surgeon Studies CBD for a Career

Heart Surgeon quits Practice to study Cannabis

Dr. David Allen Is A Leader Called Upon By Other Leaders To Expose The Miraculous Discoveries “Happening Now” In Cannabis Science

 Who Is Dr. David Allen & Why Might He Be An International Authority In Cannabinoid Science?

After 30 years as a Board Certified (general and heart) surgeon, Dr. David Allen made a radical and life-changing decision.

From the age of 17, he consumed cannabis virtually every day. He didn’t know at the time, but his first “very special” experience with cannabis would soon lead him to an early retirement from heart surgery.

Once retired, he went into studying cannabis, full time, at the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS). His official title is Cannabinoid Research Scientist.

With a remarkable title like that, we now move forward to answer the following questions:

  • Understanding The Elementary Basics Of The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
  • Why don’t doctors know the truth about cannabis or the endocannabinoid system?
  • What Does Cannabis Have To Do With The Endocannabinoid System?
  • Should Emergency Situations (Heart Attack Or Stroke) Start With Consuming Cannabis?
  • Who Can Currently Legally Purchase Cannabis?
  • Can You Make Direct Contact With Dr. David Allen If You Have More Specific Questions About Cannabis Or CBD

Understanding The Elementary Basics Of The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

When the endocannabinoid system (ECS) was first discovered, in the early 90’s, doctors didn’t understand the significance. They went on to discover the ECS performs “miraculous functions” in the body. Dr. Allen says, “The endocannabinoid system handles homeostasis. It is a chemical system, not electrical”

What does homeostasis mean?

Homeostasis is the body’s ability to maintain itself and function in proper environments. Dr. Allen says that is it CRITICALLY important that future doctors understand the specific control mechanisms of the ECS. This control is important because Dr. Allen says, we will save more lives than are currently saved by surgery.

This system is SO important that if you were to “block” the endocannabinoid system, you can prevent sperm from entering the ovum. Through blocking the ECS you can literally prevent impregnation. Thus highlighting its extreme importance in the propagation of our species into the distant future generations and beyond.

Why Don’t Doctors Know The Truth About Cannabis Or The Endocannabinoid System?

Like everyone else, Dr. Allen admits that he didn’t really know the widespread applications of CBD. His basic understanding was that cannabis made you relax and feel good. It wasn’t until he achieved a high level “sophistication” that he started to understand. He went on to understand the pathophysiology (abnormal body function, due to disease or injury) and the mechanisms for how cannabis works and took action.

Early on, he performed a quick study to see how many medical schools were teaching future doctors about the endocannabinoid system (ECS). His study involved him calling all 157 medical schools, that exist in the United States, and asking the following questions:

  • Do you have a director of ECS sciences?
  • Is there an endocannabinoid department?
  • Are there any organized courses specific to the ECS?
  • How many times do you mention the ECS in any ancillary courses? (Courses like pathophysiology, pharmacology, or neuroanatomy).

What Dr. Allen found in this study were that no medical schools had a department or a director of endocannabinoid sciences. There were no organized courses that taught med students about the ECS. And. Only 13% of medical schools even mention the endocannabinoid system. Not knowing about the ECS is like your doctor not knowing there’s a circulatory or nervous system.

According to Dr. Allen, doctors graduating this year will not be knowledgeable about the ECS. In the same breath, he goes on to say the ECS is, “a control system that controls everything.”

What Does Cannabis Have To Do With The Endocannabinoid System?

Cannabis is a powerful antioxidant and works by stimulating cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptors are present in every cell of the human body. Thus making its anti-oxidation effects that much more powerful.

Being a powerful antioxidant means cannabis “scavenges” for oxygen free radicals that cause oxidation. If your cells become oxidized they can produce free radicals. Free radicals are a toxic byproduct of oxygen getting used by the body. These free radicals lead to a chain reaction that damage living cells. The damaging of living tissues, by free radicals, is a process called oxidative stress.

Dr. Allen quotes studies where they use oxidative methods to “try” and kill pancreas cells. When they use cannabinoids, while trying to kill them through oxidation, it protects the cells. This means, through “just smoking” cannabis, you can decrease the incidences of diabetes by 66 percent.And if you eat cannabis, in its raw form, you may be able to decrease diabetes even more effectively.

When you consume cannabis, you’ve magnified your body’s natural ability to heal itself. According to Dr. Allen, every method of consuming cannabis is medicinal. He expands by saying cannabis is virtually the key of life to the mythical Fountain Of Youth because it stops oxidation from occurring in cells. Many modern diseases, in the future, will simply be defects in either the creation or the decay of the endocannabinoids your body makes.

Should Emergency Situations (Heart Attack Or Stroke) Start With Consuming Cannabis?

Dr. Allen offered no hesitation when he provides doctors orders for emergency situations. If you are having symptoms of a stroke or heart attack, Dr. Allen personally recommends cannabis. By consuming cannabis, preferably high in CBD, you can potentially save your life. 

Dr. Allen says the cannabis patent the US government owns, 6630507, claims cannabis decreases the size of a stroke by 50 percent. What’s remarkable about this is there are NO OTHER chemicals that can even decrease a stroke by 2 percent.

Cannabinoids promote neurogenesis (creation of new brain cells) and Dr. Allen says if any of his family ever had a stroke, he would get as much CBD in them as he could. At least one gram.

If you are at high risk for stroke, there’s ample evidence CBD can prevent a stroke from occurring.

Who Can Currently Legally Purchase CBD?

GOOD NEWS is that you CAN buy CBD and it is 100% legal! It won’t get you in trouble nor make you fail a drug test.

CBD Hemp OIl & Kidney Disease: How they RELATE?

CBD & Kidney Disease How do they relate?

I am a now 5th stage kidney failure patient who has been on CBD Pure Hemp OIL 27% for over three years now. I am not on dialysis. My quality of life has improved a great deal in the last three years and that is why both I and my husband began our online company Wellnesshempoil.com. My relationship with CBD is my quality of life.

There is quality of life with kidney failure

We wanted to share what I had gained in my quality of life from CBD Hemp Oil with those who suffer. This has been our mission statement from the beginning of our company. We have learned bunches from the continued research I do on a daily basis for all herbal therapies. We know that an educated customer is an empowered person who will take responsibility for their health in a very positive way with proper action to improve their health. We are concerned that so many just decide to take pills and never look at Alternative Medicine as a way to heal their conditions or gain a great quality of life even though they may have a debilitating illness. Not to say that Parma meds do not have a place because they do too! But one must remember that they are a chemical based medicine and not a natural based plant.

WHAT CBD GIVE TO MY LIFE EVERYDAY

When it comes to kidney failure I have tried most methods to prevent dialysis now over the last 9 years. My labs are good because the CBD Hemp Oil has kept my other organs functioning and even helped my kidneys also. It has not healed my kidney disease, but it has awarded me great labs, and good energy now even though my numbers are down to 13% GFR. My CBD Hemp Oil along with the use of other herbs awards me with energy every day to get my work done needed to run our company with a joyful attitude. Anyone who is a kidney failure patient knows what a low GFR will do in side effects to your body and life. Mostly it is the fatigue, the itching, the twitching of muscles, and lack of sleep! Fatigue that is so bad you feel your head is just empty. Yes, these are the symptoms I have felt with my kidney failure. Along with a metal taste in your mouth so that you feel like you just ate a mouth full of metal. The Fatigue is the worse! You do not even feel like you are human any more.

cbd to the rescue!

Here is what I experienced when I first began to use CBD Pure Hemp OIl Gel. I use a 27& gel Tube. I have used most brands as I did my research and used myself as a trail. Now we manufacturer our Pure Hemp Oil so we know what works with no added herbs or solvents. But I am getting ahead of myself. At first, when I began taking my CBD I was doing the target range plan, increasing the dosage each week to find my range need for best benefits. I had just finished my third week of use when I turned to my husband and said” I do not think this is working for me. I have felt more fatigued and tired for these last three weeks that I have been taking this CBD Pure Hemp OIl.” I decided to try for one more week before I gave up because I knew this was an herbal treatment and it takes time to get into the body and cells. In my 4th week of my use of CBD everything changed! It was like a positive shot of energy. I was energized! I felt like going out and cooking supper and doing all sorts of things. Normally I was in bed by 4:00 pm with not doing much during the day. Now I was heading to the grocery store, shopping and visiting my friends. I even stayed up until 11:00 pm. I was like I was before I ever had kidney failure. Although, I knew when I pushed myself too far. I knew my target range now and what I needed. So I began to study CBD even more.

ANOTHER VIEW POINT ON CBD & KIDNEY FAILURE

I found this article and I wanted to share it with everyone. The information is great. Do not forget to look into sodium bicarbonate, and activated charcoal,and vitamins too. ENJOY!

CBD Oil & Kidney Disease-How do They Relate – CBDOILWIKI
Published on February 24, 2017

Kidney diseases are not only uncomfortable and serious, but they are also very expensive to treat and often they may not be cured at all and prove to be fatal. But, there is still something natural that can be the ray of hope; we are talking about the CBD oil extracted from hemp.

What Is Chronic Kidney Disease?
In Chronic Kidney Disease, also known as Chronic Renal Failure, you have a progressive loss of kidney functions. Most often, it happens gradually and may take a few months to few years. Chronic kidney disease often goes undetected till the disease is in advanced stages. Almost 14% of all people in the US suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease.

Symptoms
The main symptoms include:

Swelling of hands, feet, ankles – since kidneys do not function properly, the body cannot get rid of the extra fluid and swelling occurs.
Itchy skin – again this is due to accumulation of waste products in your body that the renal functions cannot get rid of.
Fatigue – EPO made by healthy kidneys help in producing oxygen-carrying red blood cells. With less EPO, there is less production of these cells, and hence, less oxygen reaches the muscles and brain which makes one tired quickly.
Blood in urine, change in the texture of urine and increase in urination frequency.
Loss of appetite
Feeling dizzy, out of breath and suffering from muscle cramps and twitches.
How Can CBD Hemp Oil Be Used To Treat Chronic Kidney Disease?
Hemp oil can work in many ways to help in the treatment:

CBD in hemp oil blocks the inflammatory cytokines which can adversely affect the kidney. It also reduces the activity in the pathway responsible for the expression of genes that aid in inflammation.
Cleanse digestive tract.
In a study conducted in 2002, 12 among the 15 involved patients showed a marked reduction in pain by the use of hemp oil.
In a study conducted, it is also seen to reduce the effects of nephrotoxicity, thus improving renal function.
Cannabis oil is also effective in reducing headaches which can be a symptom (Baron, 2015)
Research conducted by Pan et. al.2009 show that it does improve renal functions.
What Does It Mean For The Chronic Kidney Disease Patients?
From the above studies and available literature, it is proven that cannabis oil can help alleviate the symptoms of this disease and also the ones that cause you this chronic renal failure in the first place. According to Kidney Hospital China, there are many benefits of cannabinoid oil for the suffering patients like –

CBD enhances the functions of the kidneys
It is anti-inflammation thus helping your damaged organ to work well
You can sleep better and also relieve pressure
It keeps your heart safe and also maintains proper cholesterol levels
High blood pressure is also reduced
It strengthens your immune system which can help you fight infections
Ideal Dosage of CBD
Different persons need different dosages of hemp oil, but a mark to start is 25 mg. You can range your dosage between 20 mg to 40 mg to get the desired effects.

If the use of CBD is approved by a physician, States will consider allowing the patients of serious renal diseases to use them. Thus, hemp oil may prove to be extremely helpful in curing Chronic Kidney Disease before it turns fatal.

Dose Ratios: CBD & THC the Benefits

Mixing CBD with THC for the Best Benefits

Dosing questions are the most frequently asked by our customers! Pure CBD Hemp Oil is what we sell the most. When mixed with THC one has the choice of a stronger herbal treatment. Our Pure Hemp Oil has no additives! Nothing that is not plant based. No added herbs or Coconut oil. We have found that our customers get better results from our 27% Hemp Oil than with Tinctures. Why? Because most Tinctures are cut with other oils. Many companies have a propriety solution on the back of the bottle. That means that they have added herbs and other oils to the Product.  THC added oil to CBD is done in a ratio amount. It is funny to think that just a dose the size of a grain of rice can produce such quality in my life. Sometimes there is a need to combine CBD Hemp OIl with THC oil to increase the function of the herb for relief from serious conditions and pain. The following article says what I say to many of our Cancer customers and those who are in high level of Pain. ENJOY!

CANNABIS DOSING AND THC/CBD RATIOS

PERSONALIZED MEDICINE

Cannabis Therapeutics is personalized medicine. The right treatment regimen depends on the person and condition being treated. For the maximum therapeutic benefit, choose cannabis products that include both cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating compound, and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis. CBD and THC interact to enhance each other’s therapeutic effects. They work best together. A patient’s sensitivity to THC is a key factor in determining the ratio and dosage of CBD-rich medicine. Many people enjoy the cannabis high and can consume reasonable doses of any cannabis product without feeling too high or dysphoric. Others find THC unpleasant. CBD can lessen or neutralize the intoxicating effects of THC. So a greater ratio of CBD-to-THC means less of a “high.”

Finding your ratio is the first step to effective treatment.

FIND YOUR RATIO!

Although banned by federal law, dosed cannabis medicine is currently available in the form of concentrated oil extracts, infused sublingual sprays, capsules, edibles, and other products. Potent cannabis oil extracts have varying ratios of CBD and THC that are calibrated to suit the needs and sensitivities of each patient.

For anxiety, depression, spasms, and pediatric seizure disorders, many patients initially find they do best with a moderate dose of a CBD-dominant remedy (a CBD:THC ratio of more than 10:1). But a low THC remedy, while not intoxicating, is not necessarily the best therapeutic option. A combination of CBD and THC will likely have a greater therapeutic effect for a wider range of conditions than CBD or THC alone. For cancer, neurological disease, and many other ailments, patients may benefit from a balanced ratio of CBD and THC. Extensive clinical research has shown that a 1:1 CBD:THC ratio is effective for neuropathic pain. Optimizing one’s therapeutic use of cannabis may entail a careful, step-by-step process, whereby a patient starts with small doses of a non-intoxicating CBD-rich remedy, observes the results, and gradually increases the amount of THC.

In essence, the goal is to self-administer consistent, measurable doses of a CBD-rich remedy that includes as much THC as a person is comfortable with.

THE BIPHASIC EFFECT

Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties, which means that low and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate; large doses sedate. Too much THC, while not lethal, can amplify anxiety and mood disorders. CBD has no known adverse side effects at any dose, but drug interactions can be problematic. An excessive amount of CBD could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose. “Less is more” is often the case with respect to cannabis therapy.

Dosage Guidelines

  • Decide how you want to take cannabis. Cannabis oil is available in sprays, capsules, edibles and other products.
  • Find your ratio. Cannabis products have varying amounts of CBD and THC. A high CBD or high THC product is not necessarily superior to a strain with a balanced ratio. Find the proper combination to optimize your therapeutic use of cannabis.
  • Begin with a low dose especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis.
  • Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose.
  • Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount.
  • Don’t overdo it. “Less is more” is often the case with cannabis therapeutics.
  • Be aware of possible side effects. Cannabis is a safe and forgiving medicine. Depending upon delivery method and individual tolerance, it can amplify anxiety and mood disorders. Other possible side effects are dry mouth, dizziness, and faintness.
  • Consult your health counselor. Proceed cautiously, especially if you have a history of alcohol or drug abuse, mental illness, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
