Bióloga y curiosa de origen, los recientes años los he dedicado a investigar los efectos medicinales de la marihuana donde encontré mi pasión, dedicándome actualmente a la consultoría y terapia en base al cannabis. Creo que una sociedad con conocimiento es una sociedad empoderada. Mi deseo; ayudar en esta causa acercando el saber cannabico a quien esté interesado.
CBD’s action within the brain and body is quite complicated. To date, scientists have discovered more than a dozen different mechanisms of action, or ways that CBD affect us. It’s very likely that the beneficial effects of CBD are a result of the total of its activation of all of these biological pathways, not a single one in particular. Much more research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms by which CBD relieves ailments such as anxiety and seizures.
De manera adicional, nuestro aceite pasa por un proceso de tres pasos que se encarga de eliminar por completo el poco THC que contiene la planta y cualquier residuo que haya podido filtrarse durante el cultivo y cuya presencia pueda resultar perjudicial para la salud. Además el proceso de extracción del cannabidiol de nuestro aceite es mediante CO2 supercrítico que no usa solventes adicionales que pudieran ser tóxicos y no deja residuos en el producto final.
In 2014, President Obama signed the Farm Bill of 2014 into law. This law contained a section that removed hemp from Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act. It also created a legal structure that made cultivation and research of hemp legal in states that wanted to initiate “Pilot Research Programs” into the cultivation and marketing of hemp and hemp-derived products.
Scott Shannon, M.D., assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado, recently sifted through patient charts from his four-doctor practice to document CBD’s effects on anxiety. His study, as yet unpublished, found “a fairly rapid decrease in anxiety scores that appears to persist for months,” he says. But he says he can’t discount a placebo effect, especially since “there’s a lot of hype right now.”
Many people say that you should scrub your body with leftover coffee grounds because the caffeine helps get rid of cellulite. (It is actually well documented in medical literature.) But if you feel weird about dipping into the coffee machine at the office, try this CBD-infused coffee scrub, made with coconut oil and shea butter for extra moisturizing benefits, instead. I like using it when I need a little bit of medication with my exfoliation (which the coffee grounds are for)—plus, the strong scent of coffee will wake you up if you use it in the morning. If you live with anyone else, just make sure to clean the shower afterwards—coffee scrubs can be messy and staining.
