Why Our CBD Oil?

One of my most frequently asked questions is ‘why your oil’?

Firstly Our oil contains 88.97 % CBD

Our CBD oil contains CBDv = Kannabidiwarin (CBDV) this is one of the best cannabinoids an oil can contain, unique to hemp active substances with a wide range of health applications. Only found in high quality oils,

It’s not common to find cannabidivarin in strains you would come across at your local vape shop/health shop.

Next pro point to our unique oil is our oil contains CBG this is another cannaboid that is currently being tipped to be the next big thing,

I just want to point out that another reason why you should use our oil is we are one of the only CBD companies online sharing our 3rd Party lab results. Why is that ? Surely if your product is good and pure you would boast about it right? Clearly not ! This is what makes us special to the UK CBD market.

On with bragging about our list of active magic.

Potential Benefits of CBG

“Animal studies have shown that CBG stimulates receptors involved in pain and heat sensation and can also stimulate a2-adrenergic receptors in the brain and blood vessels, which are involved in blood pressure regulation,” says Dr. Mintz. “Thus, CBG might have a role in blood pressure regulation and pain. CBG may have some anti-inflammatory properties as well.

There has been animal studies showing that CBG may be beneficial in inflammatory bowel disease (like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) and Huntington’s disease (an incurable brain disease). Test tube studies have also shown CBG to have anti-bacterial properties and prevent colon cancer

In addition this has been proved to increase dopamine levels as well as support sleep and appetite regulation. CBG has also shown support for treatment with glaucoma, cancer, and MRSA. 

Then our oil contains another cannaboid a very important cannaboid CBN

What is CBN and how does CBN work in the body?

CBN interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, and it can affect the function of many hormones and neurotransmitters, which in turn influence mood, energy, cognition and focus, appetite, immune function, and pain.

Chemically similar to CBD, CBN has several of the same effects in the body, including relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and improving sleep.

Potential sleep and health benefits of CBN

To date, the research into therapeutic benefits of CBN is VERY preliminary. But it’s starting to heat up, as interest in the health benefits of cannabinoids surges, and the popularity of CBD continues to grow. Let’s take a look at the areas of health and disease treatment and prevention where initial scientific research suggests CBN may make a difference.

CBN as a sedative. There are indications that CBN is a powerful sedative. Research in mice has shown that CBN can prolong sleep time. Some research indicates CBN’s sedative effects are amplified when combined with THC. But there is, at this point, a lack of scientific research into the sleep-inducing properties of CBN. I’m hopeful we’ll eventually see some additional scientific studies that explore the sleep-promoting capabilities of CBN.

CBN as a pain reliever. Research indicates that CBN has analgesic, or pain-relieving capabilities in the body. CBN appears to influence the activity of neurons that are sensitive to capsaicin. (Capsaicin, you might know, is found in chili peppers, and an ingredient added to many topical pain relievers.) These capsaicin-sensitive nerves are important to the body’s pain signaling and perception.

CBN as an antibiotic. Research shows CBN has the ability to fight harmful bacteria. A 2008 study found CBN one of several cannabinoids (including CBD) effective in treating MRSA, a bacterial infection that is resistant to antibiotics.

CBN as an anti-inflammatory. Like CBD, CBN appears to have anti-inflammatory capabilities. Scientists working to better understand how the human endocannabinoid system affects the immune system. Cannabinoids, including CBN, are being examined for their possible therapeutic role in treating inflammatory disease.

CBN as an appetite stimulant. This is one area in which CBN behaves very differently from CBD. While CBD has appetite suppressing effects, CBN appears to stimulate the appetite. This may make CBN a therapeutic option to help increase appetite in people who struggle to maintain an appetite because of another illness, such as cancer, or it’s treatment.

CBN as a cancer fighter. There’s also some promising preliminary evidence that CBN may have direct cancer-fighting capabilities. Cannabinoids including CBN are being studied for their ability to slow or stop the growth and spread of cancer cells. CBN was one of several cannabinoids found to reduce tumor size in one form of lung cancer.

CBN as an anti-convulsant. One of the most promising therapeutic uses for CBD is in epilepsy treatment, because of this cannabinoid’s strong anti-convulsant capabilities. Though it appears to be less strong than in CBD and THC, CBN has also been shown to function as an anti-convulsant.

CBN for bone healing and growth. Research indicates cannabinoids including CBN can help to stimulate production of new bone, by activating stem cells to help make new bone cells. There are also indications that CBN and other cannabinoids may be helpful in healing fractured bone and helping reverse bone loss, making it of interest to scientists as a potential therapy for osteoporosis.

CBN as a glaucoma therapy. CBN is one of several cannabinoids that appear be effective as a treatment for glaucoma, as several studies have shown.

Now this is a lot of info to take in right?

Right!

Then we have our terpenes these terpenes are what makes us stand out!

First one being Caryophyllene Oxide.

Caryophyllene oxide is the oxidized form of caryophyllene (or beta-caryophyllene), one of the terpenes found in cannabis, as well as one of the major terpenes found in cloves, basil, hops, pepper, and rosemary.

Caryophyllene not only plays an important role in creating the telltale smell and taste of certain plants, but it also has the capability of binding with the human body’s endocrine CB2 receptors. It is believed to be the only terpene in cannabis that has the ability to successfully bind with CB2. This unique skill is believed to make it highly beneficial for medicinal uses such as an anti-inflammatory, local anesthetic, antioxidant, and perhaps in cancer treatment.

In the plant world, terpenes such as caryophyllene play a key role in the plant’s life. Terpenes create a plant’s telltale smell and taste, which are believed to deter herbivore and insect consumption.

In cannabis, caryophyllene is a sesquiterpene and is made of three isoprene units; this makes it one of the largest and most abundant terpenes in the cannabis plant. It is also the key terpene that gives cannabis a very distinctive aroma that is quickly detected by drug-sniffing dogs.

In addition to giving the cannabis plant its scent and flavor, caryophyllene oxide also serves as a natural insecticide and anti-fungal to further protect the plant.

And last but not least Delta 3 Carene

Another active benefical terpene. This one has yet another load of benefits to our bodies out of all he 200 molecule varieties called terpenes non are better at repairing bones and promoting bone growth,

Delta 3 carene provides significant qualities to combat systemic inflammationrepair diseased and damaged bones, and is said to promote mental focus and concentration. Strains of cannabis rich in the delta 3 carene have been found to benefit those with arthritis, fibromyalgia, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

Beyond the repair of bones, delta 3 carene is unique among terpenes due to its power to draw out liquids, This drying effect makes delta 3 carene a candidate for use as an antihistamine and in products targeting excessive menstruation or mucus production.

The Research

Research has revealed the medicinal efficacy of terpenes such as delta 3 carene since the 1980s. A 1989 study entitled “Comparative Study of Different Essential Oils of Bupleurum Gibraltaricum Lamarck” that was published in the journal Europe PMC investigated the anti-inflammatory properties of delta 3 carene, concluding “the essential oil of the Cázulas Mountains population was most active against acute inflammation owing to its high delta 3-carene content.”

Now trying to explain this in Layman terms is very hard so I hope you have read and understand the properties and difference our oil contains with my brief explanation.

Our 3rd party lab results on our website give you this info, showing you how our oil is all natural contains no heavy metals, toxic chemicals or crap basically is really is a premium special oil unlike others in the UK CBD market.

Can CBD help your pets this firework night

Can CBD help your pets this firework night ?

Everybody is well aware that people are using CBD for a variety of things from pain to anxiety and skin problems, but did you know that it can also be used to treat conditions similar to humans.

So why would pets need CBD?

Just like us, pets can live with common illnesses such as pain, anxiety, arthritis and many more conditions just like us humans and one of the most stressful times of the year for anxious pets is Fireworks night !

Fireworks for pets can cause severe anxiety, I used to own a beautiful springer spaniel and this time of year I dreaded it because the anxiety she got from the sound of the fireworks was just heartbreaking, the sudden loud bangs can release a stress hormone that causes adrenaline and what does adrenaline do to us? It tells us we are in danger causes anxiety and the feeling of running away! I should know I used to suffer anxiety until I discovered our CBD,

Unfortunately fireworks night is one of the worst time of years for dogs bolting and running off, lot of dogs run away and go missing over Bonfire night festivities.

With fireworks night drawing closer we have had many questions regarding the safety of CBD for pets and dosage.

Every dog will respond differently, which is why it’s important to start with a small dose, monitor your pet’s results, and adjust from there. Most products will offer dosing suggestions, but keep in mind that these are developed by the manufacturer.

Since CBD isn’t regulated, there’s no way to tell how much is safe and effective to give a dog.

Tips

  • Start with a low dose.
  • Monitor your pet’s reactions.
  • Increase doses slowly if needed.

Why Our oil?

Because the FDA doesn’t currently regulate CBD, there’s a lot of variability in products on the market. That means that certain CBD products for humans and pets are more effective than others.

A good rule of thumb when selecting CBD products is to look on the product’s website for “certificates of analysis” and other evidence of third-party testing. These certificates tell you things like if products are pesticide and heavy metal-free and if the quality is as advertised.

We have our 3rd party lab testing results on our website ensuring you are buying real CBD oil and an oil that is not unsafe. We are proud of our CBD oil. We love highlighting the fact we share our oils lab results and boast accordingly to having one of the strongest and safest oils on the market.

A lot of companies don’t share this hugely important documentation, in fact 90% of CBD companies I have come across online do not prove what is in their oil, which I would personally stay well away from.

How does CBD affect dogs?

If you give CBD to your dog, watch for signs of a positive or negative reaction.

For example, if you give CBD to your dog 20 minutes before a firework show and find them lying comfortably during the festivities when they’d otherwise be cowering under a bed, the CBD has probably been effective.

Or, if your dog’s arthritis has been causing mobility issues, and after about a week of CBD. they’re able to run and jump like they used to, chances are high it’s doing something.

As for negative effects, look for excessive panting, lethargy, vomiting, dribbling urine, and loss of balance. If your pet is exhibiting any of these symptoms, they may have consumed too much and may be experiencing toxic effects.

In this case, it’s best to visit your veterinarian. They’ll be able to help you regardless of whether they’re willing to discuss CBD with you. Or give us a shout and we can help you with dosage information.

Thank you and enjoy Fireworks Night.

About Cannabis coconut oil

About Cannabis Coconut oil

We love our natural combination at HIW natural, we use coconut to add to our CBD because of the science behind the two that work in harmony ✌️

Cannabis has a compound called THC-A, which converts to THC, a more powerful cannabinoid when it is heated. This THC is able to bond with fats, which is why creating cannabis butter is such a popular practice for those who use this substance. However, the fat content of coconut oil is much better than butter, allowing for a much more efficient binding with THC, and therefore a more potent cannabis oil. Adding to that the long list of coconut oil’s healthy properties, such as its ability to increase energy, boost metabolism, protect the heart, strengthen the immune system, and aid in weight loss, and you have a truly desirable oil with an impressive list of health benefits.

Cannabis has an unusual place in the medical world, because many of its healthy properties have been identified, and proven in medical studies, it is still considered illegal in many parts of the world, and is currently the subject of numerous legalization efforts around the world. However, in those places where it has been decriminalized or legalized entirely for medicinal or recreational purposes, it has already begun to prove its value.

Cannabis Coconut Oil Benefits

Let us look at some of the health benefits of cannabis coconut oil in detail;

Improves Heart Health

As per the USDA, coconut oil contains healthy fatty acids that can help lower your LDL or bad cholesterol levels in the body. THC is also known to lower blood pressure, making this combination an all-around boost for your cardiovascular health.

Reduces Inflammation

As per the book, “The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids: The Current State of Evidence and Recommendations for Research“, one of the main applications for THC and cannabinoids is inflammation associated with arthritis, injuries, and other conditions within the body. Similarly, coconut oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help it soothe the stomach, and when topically applied, cannabis-infused coconut oil can help clear up irritation on the skin as well.

Improves Metabolism

Coconut oil is able to stimulate the metabolism. Research has shown that energy expenditure is roughly 3-4% higher in those who regularly take coconut oil, which is equivalent to more than 100 calories every day!

A study conducted by the Oxford Brookes University suggests that coconut oil aids in weight loss as it has satiating properties so you do not overeat. Research has also suggested that the use of medical marijuana helps in controlling weight gain.

Boosts Cognition

A pilot study on the effects of “Medical Cannabis Oil for Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia” suggests that THC has long been associated with improving cognition, reducing oxidative stress in the brain, and even preventing the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Combined with coconut oil’s antioxidant properties, this can be a powerful boost to your brain.

Anticancer Potential

One of the most exciting developments regarding cannabis oil is its potential effect on cancer prevention. THC and other cannabinoids are being researched heavily in terms of their effect on the spread of cancer, as well as for pain treatment.

Relieves Pain

As mentioned in a recent research study, THC is considered an extremely effective painkiller with very few side effects, unlike pharmaceuticals and morphine-derived pills. Coconut oil allows more THC to bind to the fat cells, making the cannabis oil more powerful and better able to function as an analgesic.

Reduces Anxiety

The constituents in coconut oil can help regulate hormones, due to the release of ketones in the liver. Similarly, THC is closely linked to a reduction in anxiety and stress, and can also help with sleep disorders and insomnia.

Cannabis Coconut Oil Uses

The uses for cannabis coconut oil are endless.

  • Add it to your morning coffee or herbal tea
  • Stir it into your smoothie
  • Drizzle it over pasta
  • Add to sauces, salads, and dressings
  • Put it in soups or stews
  • Prepare meat dishes or even scrambled eggs

Basically, anything that you would normally use cooking oil for in your cooking can be switched out for cannabis-infused coconut oil.

However, it is important to remember that pure THC can be very powerful, and will give you the same effects as smoking marijuana. While adding this oil to your life can be hugely beneficial, as the list above shows, it is also a drug with mind-altering effects.

You should never operate heavy machinery or drive a car while you are under the influence of cannabis. It is also essential that you create a cannabis coconut oil that is safe to consume, so it must be in the proper ratios. Following a strict recipe is highly recommended, particularly if you are making cannabis coconut oil for the first time.

Mum stumbles across miracle cure

Mum left short of options stumbles across miracle cure!

Cheryl Halliburton a young mother began suffering with eczema after falling pregnant 4 years ago. The flare ups on her face and neck area were so bad it often left the skin red raw to the point she wouldn’t leave the house being so self conscious.

As a child cheryl had suffered with eczema but grew out of it and now believes that it stems from a hormone imbalance in her body which was then resurfaced as the pregnancy began leaving her skin sore and itchy.

“It would flare up every couple of days depending on what I was eating and it would be an uncontrollable itch and no cream I put on it would soothe it, in fact, it would often make it worse.
“I would feel like I wanted to rip my skin off. I felt like I couldn’t go on anymore as I was just not getting any answers from the doctors.

“On bad days I wasn’t even able to take my daughter to nursery or would be unable to work or leave the house and a combination of antihistamine and painkillers would make me drowsy.”

After being continuously given steroid tablets by her GPs they was still no closer to the route of the problem however finding it manageable, yet she feared going on nights out worrying if she was to drink alcohol or eat something she shouldn’t it could easily be brought back to the forefront.

Then on august the 2nd last year a flare up spiralled out of control. Cheryl’s husband Craig could not bare to see her suffer in such pain, with this he rushed her to hospital in elgin.

“I couldn’t move my face and neck and there were open wounds on my chest that were weeping. I was cold and shaky and felt like I wanted to be sick, and was placed on a drip overnight to treat the infection that had gotten into my skin”

“All my tests came back normal and doctors wanted to discharge me so I could be treated at home but I broke down to a nurse as I felt like I couldn’t go on”

“It seemed there was never going to be an answer.”

After seeing his daughter quickly running out of options Cheryl’s dad made the suggestion of maybe trying CBD. She gave it some thought and also researched it and decided to give it a go. After trying the oil she decided it wasn’t to her taste and found CBD in the from of vape liquid.

2 weeks had passed and Cheryl was left stunned, not only had her skin cleared up but the flare ups had stop also.

CBD is also believed to have anti ageing properties, along with many other benefits.

Gronkowski CBD sports recovery

(CNN)Alas, New England Patriots fans. That long-awaited announcement from your beloved former tight end had nothing to do with a comeback.

Rob Gronkowski, it appears, will remain retired from pro football after announcing Tuesday that he is partnering with a Rhode Island-based cannabidiol company to promote CBD products for athletes.
“I’m advocating for CBD to be acceptable for all players for recovery,” the three-time Super Bowl champion said, adding in true Gronk fashion, “You can just call me Mr. Recovery. You know you like that name. Mr. Recovery, baby.”
The five-time Pro Bowler, who announced his retirement in March, said he had been using CBD in his own rehabilitation process, and he was so impressed with the results that he is partnering with Abacus Health on a line of “all-natural, fitness-oriented recovery products.”
Rob Gronkowski spent nine years with New England Patriots.

In an Abacus statement, Gronkowski, 30, said he suffered numerous injuries and underwent nine surgeries during his nine seasons catching bullets from Tom Brady.
“I was in near constant pain and needed to make a change,” he said. “These products have helped me safely manage pain better than anything else I’ve tried.”
Proponents of CBD products say they can help athletes with pain, inflammation and even traumatic brain injuries, but because of CBD’s close relationship with its cousin, THC — the psychoactive drug in cannabis — CBD has seen itself banned in many pro sports venues. Unlike THC, however, pure CBD oil does not produce the euphoric “high” in its users.
While the World Anti-Doping Agency, which tests Olympic and World Cup athletes for drugs, has lifted its own prohibition on CBD, the US Anti-Doping Agency warns that taking CBD products is risky for athletes because it is difficult to extract CBD from a marijuana plant without also extracting some of the other 115 cannabinoids, including THC, that are found in the plant.
Gronk fulfills fan's wish
Those other cannabinoids can result in failed drug tests for marijuana, USADA says.
Several major sporting leagues, however, still have a total ban on the substance, including the NCAA, NASCAR, Major League Soccer and Major League Baseball, though punishments for a positive drug test vary from league to league.
It is also banned by Gronk’s former employer, but several former players have come forward urging the NFL to reconsider its stance. The NBA also bans the use of CBD, but former Commissioner David Stern has suggested it should be removed from the league’s banned substances list.
The National Hockey League tests players for marijuana use, but doesn’t punish them for failed tests.

CBD what is it?

CBD: What it is, how it affects the body and who it might help

Post Sourced from Cnet.com

If it seems like you’re seeing CBD products everywhere, that’s because you are. Thanks to the passage of the US Farm Bill in 2018, which legalized industrial hemp, and the legalization of medical and recreational cannabis at the state level, CBD products have exploded in availability and popularity over the last year.

This story discusses substances that are legal in some places but not in others and is for informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing legal advice. You shouldn’t do things that are illegal — this story does not endorse or encourage illegal drug use.

Depending on where you live, you can find them at CVS, your local gas station, pet stores — even Carl’s Jr. And the industry shows no signs of slowing down: Sales of CBD products are expected to exceed $5 billion this year, a 706% increase over 2018, according to the Brightfield Group, a cannabis-focused research firm.

The only thing spreading faster than CBD appears to be confusion over what exactly it is and who it’s for. Whether you’re already a user or are just CBD curious, this primer will help you cut through the misinformation and get up to speed.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabinoid family that naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. Scientists have isolated 108 different types of cannabinoids in cannabis.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is probably the best-known thanks to its psychoactive properties — it’s the one that gets you “high” — but CBD is quickly gaining ground due to its potential therapeutic benefits.

How does CBD work?

CBD (and THC) work by interacting with our body’s endocannabinoid system, a regulatory system made up of naturally occurring cannabis-like molecules. These endocannabinoids, as they’re called, work like neurotransmitters, shuttling messages through the body to help maintain homeostasis. Cannabinoids like CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system at two known receptors: CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are mainly present in the brain — where they’re involved with cognition, memory, motor skills and pain — but also in the peripheral nervous system, liver, thyroid, uterus and more. THC attaches itself to these receptors, inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters and possibly increasing the release of others, altering normal functioning.

CBD oil is one popular way people ingest CBD

Researchers once thought that CBD did the same thing, but with CB2 receptors — which are abundant in the immune and gastrointestinal systems, as well as the brain and nervous system. However, they no longer believe that to be true.

Although the exact way CBD affects our bodies is still unknown, scientists think CBD encourages the body to produce more of its own endocannabinoids, which may help reduce anxiety, pain and inflammation.

Is CBD legal?

Technically yes, but the answer isn’t quite so cut and dried.

The cannabis plant comes in many different varieties. For decades though, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) treated them all the same, classifying cannabis as a Schedule I substance. Schedule I drugs are considered to have “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse” and are thus illegal to produce or possess.

However, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (aka the Farm Bill) changed all that. The Farm Bill legalized “hemp,” which the legislation defined as cannabis that contains no more than 0.3% THC, nationwide.

Cannabis that contains higher levels of THC is know listed as “marijuana” and remains a Schedule I drug.

In other words, if a CBD product comes from a hemp plant, it’s legal; if it comes from a marijuana plant, it’s federally illegal, despite local laws. And even if does come from hemp plant, there’s often no guarantee it won’t contain THC, thanks to things like cross-pollination and the absence of industry regulation (see “What are the risks of taking CBD?” below).

The Food and Drug Administration is currently trying to figure out how to regulate CBD, which now falls under their purview. But in the meantime, experts recommend buying CBD products from companies located in states like Indiana and Utah that require cannabis products to be tested for potency and purity.

What are the health benefits of CBD?

CBD is being marketing as a bit of a cure-all, with manufacturers claiming it can do everything from relieving anxiety to stopping the spread of cancer. However, cannabis’s classification as a Schedule 1 drug has severely hampered American scientists’ ability to study CBD, making it hard to support or refute these claims. The studies that are available tend to be small or are done on animals or in laboratories.

That said, CBD is showing promise. Early experiments suggest that it may help fight anxiety, ease schizophrenia symptoms and reduce pain (though the latter is often done in conjunction with THC).

The strongest evidence of CBD’s effectiveness, though, is in relation to epilepsy. Last year, the FDA approved Epidiolex, a medication used to treat Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndromes, two rare and severe forms of epilepsy. It was the agency’s first approval of a cannabis-derived drug.

How is CBD used?

CBD is available in a variety of forms. Some of the most common delivery methods are listed below, but how it’s ultimately used depends on personal needs and preferences. The delivery method of CBD affects how quickly it works and what kinds of effects it has on the body.

  • Edibles are broad range of products to eat or drink, like gummies or chocolates. Edibles can take anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours to take effect.
  • Oils and tinctures are processed and concentrated forms of CBD that are often placed under the tongue using a dropper and absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Pills and capsules are ingested orally and look similar to the vitamins and/or drugs you’d find in a drugstore. They typically contain CBD oil or CBD isolate.
  • Topicals are CBD-infused oils, creams and lotions that are intended to be used directly on skin, hair or nails. They’re a popular way to treat localized pain, but are also used as skincare, haircare and massage oil as well.
  • Vaping, like e-cigarettes, involves inhaling a vaporized liquid that contains CBD oil. Nicotine is not usually present if CBD is, though it is possible to mix them.

What are the risks of taking CBD?

A 2017 World Health Organization report found that CBD, in its pure state, is safe, well-tolerated by humans and animals and not likely to cause physical dependence or abuse. And according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 1,500 mg of CBD has been safely taken by mouth daily for up to four weeks.

CBD oil is likely safe for anxious pets, but research has yet to prove it helps. R+R Medicinals/Unsplash

What is CBD and can it help me

What is CBD and can it help me
CBD refers to Cannabidiol, one of more than 70 known chemical compounds, cannabinoids, which are unique to the marijuana plant. Like THC, marijuana’s most well-known therapeutic compound,
CBD has significant medical effects, including anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic and anti-spasm properties.
Unlike THC, however,it is non-psychoactive –meaning that it does not make people feel intoxicated.
In fact, CBD can counter the psychoactivity of THC
What Does the Research Say About CBD?
Emerging research on CBD is quitepromising. Evidence of varying quality supports the use of CBD for a wide range of serious medical conditions, including
  • Alzheimer’s,
  • anorexia,
  • anxiety
  • atherosclerosis
  • arthritis,
  • cancer
  • colitis/Crohn’s
  • depression
  • diabetes
  • epilepsy/seizure
  • myalgia
  • glaucoma
  • irritable bowel
  • multiplesclerosis
  • neurodegeneration
  • obesity
  • osteoporosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • PTSD,schizophrenia
  • substance dependence
  • addiction
  • stroke/traumatic
  • brain injury
Medical marijuana growers and providers in Colorado have developed a strain of marijuana with a high amount of CBD and a low amount of THC , that is being used to treat children with a rare and life-threatening form of childhood epilepsy called Dravet’s syndrome.
The success of this treatment for pediatric patients has attracted significant media attention which has led families of children with epilepsy to organize around the country to advocate for access to medical marijuana.
Some families have relocated to Colorado to access the only treatment that may work for their children.
Our oil is shipped directly from colorado, we use a strain better than anything currently in the UK Market.

Amazing Testimonial

Fragile x syndrome learning disabilities with autistic traits and anxiety
Customer Testimonial
We had a customer come to us after reading about the positive effects of using CBD with such a condition as fragile X. The customer proceeded to send us an update the following week and the week after as she was amazed with the results.
We 100% stand by our products but hearing results back like this make it worth while.
As to keep the customers details private to her as Mrs B
UPDATE 1 Mrs B: After being picked on by the same child at school since pre school today my daughter stood for herself, my daughter doesn’t have a bad bone in her body and if she wanted to stick up for herself she would be more than capable however due to the fragile x syndrome she finds it hard to do so and the said bully knows this making it easy for them.
Well yesterday she came home so pleased with her self, the bully approached my daughter who was with her friends, the bully began showing off and picking on her as she done for so long, but to my surprise what she said next really had me shocked, my daughter went nose to nose with the bully and screamed in her face “bloody bring it on idiot, I’m not taking it no more.
As you can imagine it stopped the young kid in there tracks. My daughter was so chuffed with herself as she would never dreamed of doing that before.
UPDATE 2
Mrs B: Just another update on my daughters progress on the CBD oil. Not only has she stood up to the bully at school but yesterday she stood on stage in front of 200 people. Not only did she perform her school leavers play which in its self is a massive deal for her due to her massive anxiety issues. She also sang solo to the 200 people. I never ever thought i would see her overcome her anxiety and lack of self confidence like she has done today, she absolutely smashed it!!
Thank you Mrs B
