Why are disposable CBD vaporizer so popular?

As the research on CBD becomes more open and in-depth, people’s knowledge of CBD is gradually clear.

Helping sleep, anti-anxiety, relaxation, and anti-inflammatory are the main topics we hear from users. Compared with opioids, the dependence of CBD is particularly critical. Although we cannot descript it with words of cure or treatment, the results show that CBD can indeed give people what people need most in some ways, and it is purely natural without side function.

The pursuit of health is the consistent purpose of all people, but for a new thing, we believe that more people will maintain an attitude of experimentation. Based on these opinions we decided to launch a CBD vaporizer that can be affordable and easy to use. Simple operation, portable size, and trusted quality are what ALD’s doing.

Vapor safety, especially heavy metals, has always been a common problem in the vape industry. Compared to some non-famous manufacturers, ALD always put the quality of hardware in the first position. Under the production environment of ISO9001 and GMP, all ALD’s products will pass rigorous testing, and only vaporizers that approved the safety standards will enter the market then come to every family.

Meanwhile, ALD believes the application of food-grade material such as PCTG and 316S stainless steel is a very important part of the R&D project, which allows the extract(CBD) to avoid the production of heavy metals and harmful substances during the vaporizing process.

To be proud of ceramic heating elements, this is the most successful field of ALD. The market effect we bring to the amazing brand “STIIIZY ” is incredible. We always believe that the future field of CBD vaping must also be based on the ceramics element. This is due to the high-temperature resistance, leakage prevention, and the advantage of pure tastes.
As we know, CBD extract is currently illegal in China, which means that the brander needs to fill the device locally. For this reason, we designed the Nati series which can be filled easily out of the factory. For more, we also can offer an automated filling machine system to match the larger needs. Even you wanna do a trial business or extend your existing business, ALD always is your partner.

Vaping makes people’s life colorful and meticulous, it is a great thing. ALD has been in this field for more than 11 years we believe that life needs quality, and quality comes from every step every attitude.

CBD Offers Cigarette Smokers a New Way Out

Tobacco and nicotine addictions are still a major healthcare issues around the globe. In fact, according to data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), the tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing more than 8 million people a year around the world. More than 7 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. The WHO also indicates that over 80% of the 1.3 billion tobacco users worldwide live in low- and middle-income countries, where the burden of tobacco-related illness and death is heaviest. To this day, tobacco use contributes to poverty by diverting household spending from basic needs such as food and shelter to tobacco. In recent years, electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) and electronic non-nicotine delivery systems (ENNDS), commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, have become very popular. However, e-cigarettes are particularly risky when used by children and adolescents as nicotine is highly addictive and young people’s brains develop up to their mid-twenties. TAAT Lifestyle & Wellness Ltd. (CSE: TAAT), British American Tobacco p.l.c. (NYSE: BTI), Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE: PM), Universal Corporation (NYSE: UVV), 22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE: XXII)

After the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized production of industrial hemp, transforming it into a mainstream agricultural product, numerous categories of CBD products started to appear. Now, the growing awareness about the therapeutic benefits of cannabidiol has influenced people to buy such products, even at relatively high costs. As a result, mainstream retailers are now focusing on selling CBD-based products, as these have a higher profit margin. Perhaps not surprisingly, hemp and CBD products are potentially stealing market share from other markets, such as tobacco for example. According to data provided by the Brightfield Group and published by Hemp Industry Daily, a survey of more than 5,000 CBD users in the U.S. reveals that 24% have used it to help quit smoking and quitters are often replacing cigarettes with either smokable hemp or vaping. And, 41% of quitters have entirely replaced tobacco with hemp CBD.

TAAT Lifestyle & Wellness Ltd. (CSE: TAAT) announced last week breaking news that, “it has entered into a letter of intent dated July 10, 2020 to acquire Redwood Reserves Ltd. (“Redwood”), one of the largest and best-established U.S. hemp cigarette brands, for an acquisition price consisting of $1,155,000 and 2,390,000 common shares in the capital of TAAT. This strategic acquisition is intended to provide more cost-effective manufacturing capacity to TAAT, in addition to gaining an established direct distribution network through which Beyond Tobacco™ cigarettes are planned to be supplied to Redwood’s extensive network of retailers. As Redwood’s product line is currently being sold in more than 1,600 U.S. smoke shops and convenience stores, carried by several distributors, and sold through Redwood’s online store, the Company will realize cash flow from Redwood’s continued business activities following the proposed acquisition. Additionally, the Company believes that Redwood’s product offerings can complement TAAT’s Beyond Tobacco™ product upon the planned Q4 2020 product launch.

Subject to a definitive agreement, which the parties have agreed to proceed with diligently and in good faith to negotiate and settle the terms for execution on or before July 31, 2020, TAAT will acquire 100% of Redwood, resulting in Redwood becoming a 100% subsidiary of the Company. The acquisition of Redwood is subject to customary conditions of closing, including without limitation, the satisfactory completion of due diligence by both parties and the receipt of applicable regulatory and governmental approvals.

Founded in Portland, OR in 2019, Redwood produces hemp products that are characterized by an organic growing process, and the unique horticultural properties of Oregon’s Willamette Valley which are said to yield hemp of remarkable quality. Its “seed-to-smoke” production chain allows for complete visibility into every step of a Redwood hemp product’s journey to maintain the high standard that has earned Redwood a sterling reputation in the hemp industry. Aside from its flagship proprietary blend hemp cigarette products sold in a “stick” format and cigarette-style packaging (shown below), Redwood also offers pre-rolled hemp in a “joint” format, as well as “kief”, and various varieties of single-gram “dabs” and flowers in 3.5g and 7g units. Redwood has developed three proprietary hemp strains to include Carolina Dream, Golden Redwood, and Wild Bourbon. All proprietary strains, as well as the Redwood Reserve blend have undergone separate laboratory tests conducted by Confident Cannabis, to provide users a comprehensive overview of their respective qualities. Redwood’s laboratory reports can be accessed at the following link: https://redwoodreserves.com/lab-reports/

 CBD Offers Cigarette Smokers a New Way Out

To date, Redwood has established a presence in more than 1,600 U.S. retail stores to include stores in major markets such as New York CityLos AngelesDallasChicagoBoston, and San Francisco. In the past six months, Redwood has formed agreements with more than one dozen national and regional distribution firms to supply Redwood hemp products to retailers throughout the United States. Redwood presently has open dialogues with additional distribution firms in which new distributorship is being contemplated, to potentially further expand Redwood’s retail market reach.

Through strategic search engine optimization, Redwood has gained significant online visibility, even without the use of pay-per-click advertising. As of this writing, Redwood’s website benefits from top-level visibility in the Featured Snippets section of Google search results for search terms to include “benefits of CBD cigarettes” (shown below). Moreover, sales volumes on Redwood’s online store experienced notable recent growth, with June 2020 sales 421% higher than sales for the month of November 2019, following the online store’s launch in October 2019.

‘We’re enthusiastic about acquiring Redwood for many reasons’, said Joe Deighan, Founder of TAAT. ‘Their organically-grown proprietary strains of hemp have earned Redwood a loyal base of followers, in addition to strong relationships with retailers and distributors. Aside from that, having access to their production capacity can improve our production timelines for Beyond Tobacco™ and reduce costs considerably. Thus, bringing Redwood under TAAT’s umbrella is both an operational play for the Company itself, in addition to a marketing play to capitalize on the brand recognition of a proven and successful seed-to-smoke hemp company under great leadership. I believe Beyond Tobacco™ can prosper in combined marketing and distribution efforts with Redwood’s product line, which is already highly sought-after. We look forward to exploring these synergies as we get closer to the planned Q4 2020 launch of Beyond Tobacco™.'”

Universal Corporation (NYSE: UVV) announced last year, that the Company’s subsidiary, Universal Leaf Philippines, Inc. (“ULPI”) will be increasing its purchases of leaf tobaccos in the Philippines, as part of a new leaf supply arrangement for the Philippines with Philip Morris International Management SA (“PMIMSA”). Previously, PMFTC, Inc. (“PMFTC”), an affiliate of PMIMSA, purchased certain quantities of leaf tobaccos produced by their own contracted grower base and processed that tobacco in their own facility. Starting with the 2019 crop, PMFTC will purchase processed grades of tobacco from ULPI. The new arrangement is expected to provide important supply chain efficiencies and is indicative of PMIMSA’s and Universal’s strong commitment to the grower communities in the Philippines and PMIMSA’s intent to remain a major purchaser of Philippine-grown leaf tobacco. Universal initiated operations in the Philippines in the late 1960s. George C. Freeman, III, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Corporation stated, “We are very excited about this new opportunity to continue to meet the evolving needs of one of our long-standing global business partners, while expanding our leaf purchasing and grower support services in the Filipino grower communities.

22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE: XXII), a leading plant biotechnology company in reduced nicotine tobacco and hemp/cannabis plant genetics research, announced on March 11th, that lead scientists from 22nd Century Group and KeyGene had assembled a high quality genome sequence of two hemp/cannabis lines and established a new, proprietary hemp/cannabis bioinformatics platform. Both are believed to be among the highest quality, hemp/cannabis reference genomes in the world. “These exciting, new developments are already enabling the rapid breeding of new and proprietary hemp/cannabis plant lines with truly remarkable and potentially novel medicinal cannabinoid profiles,” said Michael Zercher, President & Chief Operating Officer of 22nd Century Group. “Our research partnership with KeyGene will bolster our existing, proprietary hemp/cannabis plant lines and accelerate our molecular breeding work focused on the creation of valuable, new hemp/cannabis plant varieties and related intellectual property. We congratulate 22nd Century’s science team as well as our partners at KeyGene on these very exciting achievements, and we look forward to even more exciting and valuable results in our hemp/cannabis plant genetics research,” Zercher concluded.

4 Best Ways to Consume CBD Products

Are you planning to use CBD for your daily workout? Do you wonder how to consume it? If yes, then this article is perfect for you. Read on to find the best and most effective ways to consume CBD.

CBD has managed to get limelight from all around the world with the recent legalization and popularity. The major growth in the cannabis market in the last few years shows the impact & outreach of the CBD on a global level. The high growth rate indicates the change in customer perspective towards CBD-based treatments as well as accepting CBD-infused products into their everyday lives.

CBD or cannabidiol refers to one of more than 480 cannabinoids present in the cannabis (marijuana) plant. It is directly derived from the hemp plant which is a member of marijuana family. Cannabidiol is surpassing the popularity of other naturally occurring compounds because of its amazing beneficial properties.

CBD is a non-psychoactive component which contains a very small amount of THC. That means it doesn’t induce any high in users and you can enjoy all the benefits of CBD without worrying about any “High” effects. CBD is more prevalent than its counterparts like THC & CBG,  because It does not initiate any psychoactive effects in the users and is responsible for several incredible health benefits. CBD can treat skin conditions, depression, stress, anxiety, muscular pains, seizures, cancer and many physical & mental health problems.

How can you consume CBD in the most effective way:

There are several methods to integrate CBD into your health and wellness routine, including:

1.VAPING

Vaping is one of the most effective gift from technology to the mankind. If you are looking for a quick way to get the effects, then vaping CBD is the easiest way. Many studies shows that vaping is safer than smoking due to zero presence of combustion and other toxic materials. E-cigarette aerosol also doesn’t include all the contaminants in tobacco smoke.

Vape or e-cigarettes are the battery-operated devices come in many forms and exactly look like conventional cigarettes, pens or other tech gadgets. You can vape cannabis bud, CBD oil, isolate, and even wax by investing in a particular device.

You can easily purchase CBD vape oil and vaping devices from a reputed marijuana dispensary. These are used to inhale the CBD oil. When the vapor is inhaled, it goes through your lungs and finally into the bloodstream.  Vape are quick in delivery & its effects can be felt in a few minutes. The only drawback is that its effect doesn’t last for a long time.  A CBD dosage calculator can help you determine the suitable dose based on your body weight and the strength of the CBD oil for vaping.

  1. CBD EDIBLES

Edibles and infused drinks blend perfectly with mindfulness practices. Edibles come in many forms such as baked goods, CBD-infused teas, CBD gummies, brownies, candy, chocolate bars, cookies, drinks, pills, snacks, spreads and more which have CBD infused in them. CBD is sold in the form of capsules, drink powders, popcorn, and coconut oil. The effect of edibles depends on various factors like the type of the edibles you are using, your tolerance, your immunity, and the amount you’ve had to eat.

CBD taken in the form of drinks or food have to undergo digestion which means it may take some time for you to feel the effects. One of the best things about CBD edibles is that the effects will last for about eight hours, making them ideal for extensive workouts, exercise or yoga practice. We can say that for a convenient way to consume CBD, you won’t go wrong with the CBD edibles.

  1. CBD Topical

CBD topical has achieved a special place in the heart of CBD users. Nowadays, there seems to be a topical product with CBD everywhere. These CBD-infused topicals include lotions, salves & creams, that are applied on the skin for relief on the surface or even deeper in muscle tissue.

The application of CBD-infused topicals can greatly help with yoga & workout. When you apply CBD cream, gel, oil, or lotion on your skin, it’s absorbed and penetrates the skin to muscle tissues, thus offering relief. CBD topical products are helpful for people with eczema and psoriasis. These products also ease tension in your arteries and help with muscle soreness.

4.  CBD Oil:

If you’re looking for the most convenient form of consuming CBD, then CBD oil can give the best result for you. The oil offers the best benefits for treating various ailments due to the Entourage effect. CBD oil has proven effective in treating several chronic pain conditions such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

The strength of the CBD oil used influences dosage levels. The dosage will vary if the strength of your CBD oil varies. Understand your requirements before you leap to shop for any products.

You can put a few drops of it under your tongue, hold it for 40-60 seconds and then swallow. The bloodstreams inside your mouth under the tongue absorb it quickly and give you instant effects.

Things To Consider Before Taking CBD In Hongkong

CBD is legal in Hong Kong. Consistent with several official government press announcements, CBD (cannabidiol) isn’t classified as a dangerous drug and is not controlled under the damaging Drugs Ordinance.

It’s vital to notice that THC and its derivatives are illegal in Hong Kong, and anything containing these substances is prohibited. When purchasing CBD products, it’s essential to review labels or ask the vendor to ensure you’re purchasing broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate-based products to avoid unintentionally breaching the law.

Cannabidiol (CBD) may be a compound found within the hemp plant, referred to as a phytocannabinoid. While there are over 100 phytocannabinoids, just one is psychoactive. That might be tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), or the one that creates you high. On the other hand, CBD is non-psychoactive and has even been counteractive to THC’s psychological effects.

What’s the Difference CBD And Hemp Oil

CBD is extracted from the entire hemp plant (flower & leaves) and is most ordinarily available in drops, tincture, or vape (oil) form, which is why you’ve adequately heard people mention CBD oil.

Hemp oil is different from CBD oil. Hemp oil, most ordinarily referred to as hemp seed oil, doesn’t contain CBD or THC. While it does come from the hemp plant, hemp oil is extracted only from the seeds, whereas CBD may be a compound derived from the entire plant (see above). Highly nutritious and an excellent source of Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, hemp oil is usually utilized in food as a dressing and in skincare/ cosmetic products for its moisturizing properties.

Hemp is within the Cannabis family; the difference between hemp and marijuana is that the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD levels. Marijuana bred for recreational use usually has high THC content (up to 20%), which makes it psychoactive, hemp features a generally low THC amount (under 1%).

Does CBD Contain THC?

CBD features a wide selection of therapeutic properties; it is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective. It also helps relieve pain management, sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression. Extensive scientific research also shows that CBD can benefit patients affected by Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, and cancer.

 

There are three sorts of CBD:

Full Spectrum CBD may contain a trace amount of THC (0.2% to 1% counting on its origin) since all other compounds extracted from the plant are included.

Broad Spectrum CBD, which contains NO THC but does contain other compounds; and

CBD isolate, which contains only CBD, meaning only a single compound.

Ideally, this information should be provided on the product label. Still, the truth is that a lot of CBD products today are marketed as dietary supplements, which suggests they’re not regulated rigorously. Therefore, the labeling requirements are still relatively opaque. As a consumer, it is often confusing when buying a product, which is why it’s vital to get CBD products from a store/brand you trust, preferably one where you’ll ask questions. A reputable seller will happily provide lab reports on demand, which will indicate the cannabinoid contents and percentages.

In general, look out for words like CBD/cannabidiol/cannabinoid extract/hemp CBD/marijuana extract/CBD isolate when you are looking to get a CBD product. CBD also can be obtained from freshly rolled joints over glow trays for smoking.

Is CBD Safe?

As per the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD has been deemed a secure, non-toxic, and non-addictive substance. Here’s what they need to say: “CBD is usually well tolerated with an honest safety profile.”

CBD has few known side effects, and once they occur, they’re typically minor and non-threatening. A recent report by the National Cancer Institute–a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)–notes that overdosing on CBD is virtually impossible. Therefore, the same is true of THC and marijuana. Per the report: “Because cannabinoid receptors, unlike opioid receptors, aren’t located within the brainstem areas controlling respiration, lethal overdoses from Cannabis and cannabinoids don’t occur.”

Can I Travel With CBD?

Traveling with CBD is feasible, but it also depends on your final destination and which CBD product-base you’re carrying. Hence, it’s worth familiarizing yourself with the allowed percentages. For instance, the US will allow a THC level under 0.3%; the United Kingdom and most EU countries, under 0.2%; Japan (like Hong Kong) is at 0%. However, some Asian countries, like Taiwan and Thailand, classify CBD as a regulated medication; only a 1–2-month supply is tolerated. In Singapore, CBD is prohibited by law.

Traveling with CBD can definitely be complicated due to the controversial history of cannabis, to be safe and always check local laws before deciding to bring any CBD products with you.

How Will CBD Make Me Feel?

Since CBD isn’t psychoactive, you won’t get a robust feeling from it. It’s more of a subtle effect to balance the imbalances that exist within your body. The calming effects tend to be more noticeable if you’re experiencing anxiety or depression. If you suffer from chronic pain, you’re likely to feel quick relief because of CBD’s strong pain-relieving properties.

How Does CBD Work?

The Endocannabinoid System exists in mammals, including humans and animals (this includes our pets). It plays an essential role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience. In other words, the system may be a master regulator for all other systems of the body. The research on cannabis led to the invention of this previously unknown biochemical communication system in our collection and, therefore, the discovery of receptors that answer cannabis, also because of the identification of the endogenous cannabinoids released in our bodies that bind to those receptors. This binding brings on therapeutic effects, and ingesting CBD can activate the receptors to boost signal, making it safer than most pharmaceutical drugs on the market when treating anxiety or other conditions.

Can Everyone Enjoy CBD?

Absolutely! Since CBD is non-intoxicating and proffers relatively few known side effects (dry mouth, fatigue, nausea, change in appetite, drowsiness), it’s safe for all ages. There are known cases of adults using CBD to treat epilepsy in their children, or older adults using it to alleviate Parkinson’s symptoms. CBD is right for anyone who doesn’t want to experience THC’s psychoactive effects but enjoys the therapeutic effects of the cannabis plant.

Pre-clinical research indicates that CBD has potent anti-tumoral, antioxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsive, and neuroprotective properties. CBD directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-anxiety effect. People who are handling the following health conditions may enjoy CBD: anxiety, stress, depression, sleep disorders, pain, inflammation, acne, addiction, muscle spasms, and epilepsy.

Bottom Line

Keep in mind that CBD can interact with certain medications metabolized by the liver on ingestion. Confirm this and discuss how best to proceed with your GP/family doctor. Infants and pregnant women aren’t recommended CBD as there isn’t enough research on its effects on fetus development.

Were you thinking of dosing your cat/dog with CBD? Why not? CBD is safe for humans and for the ones you love, your pets. They need an ECS system inside their body as much as we do, and CBD works in the same way as it does on us. Just ensure that you regulate the dose according to their body size (and ask your vet to be sure).

Will cannabis be unbanned by United Nations soon?

Although the new coronavirus epidemic is not over, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) will proceed as planned. And they’ll vote on if to lift the ban on cannabis.

Attitudes of some countries

Supporting nations

● The EU regrets that “the vast majority of countries are not ready to vote” and hopes that they will be ready in December. The attitudes of other European countries, Mexico and Uruguay are consistent with the EU statement.

● South Africa stated that “this recommendation is comprehensive, fair and based on rigorous review based on scientific evidence” and therefore “will serve as an important guide for member states to list cannabis in domestic legislation”.

● Jamaica expressed concern that “the continued extension of voting will affect patient access and improve palliative care”.

● Canada’s opinion is that “the two proposals were originally prepared for a substantive vote and may be adopted today”, but “in the spirit of compromise we are willing to postpone the vote”.

● Mexico said that postponement of the opinion vote “will weaken our role as the main institution for solving the global drug problem”.

● Switzerland is “ready to vote” and regrets “some member states are not ready yet”. The representative of Switzerland stated, “We need to show the world… that the international management system is credible and adaptable to the future.”

● The United States called the “differences in national conditions” and “viewpoints” an “important component” of the (review and voting) process, and urged other countries to use the next few months to prepare for “effective” voting in December jobs.

● The UK stated that it is “ready to vote…but respects the joint decision to postpone the vote”, saying that the December vote will be “necessary to maintain the authority and credibility of the international regulatory system.”

Opposing nations

● Russia is pleased that the vote has been postponed, saying that it has not seen a “convincing basis” to support this proposal, saying that cannabis is “the most abused drug in the world”.

● Singapore stated that this proposal would significantly relax the international community’s control over cannabis, leading to “widening public access to cannabis” and possibly “causing serious public health and safety issues”. In addition, Singapore does not “see any strong evidence that can justify this recommendation”, nor does it believe that it is necessary to change existing policies in order to permit the medical and scientific use of cannabis.

● Japan stated that “all member states’ unanimous opposition to drugs will be the most important policy to be maintained”, so it welcomes the delay in voting.

● Nigeria expressed “serious concerns” and believed that “the basis for this recommendation is insufficient”. The representative of the country was “very worried about the global perception” because the adoption of this recommendation “may be seen as support for the legalization of non-medicinal cannabis”.

● Egypt stated that the six recommendations “need to be discussed as a whole rather than separately.”

● Iran welcomes the postponement of the vote, saying that the proposed evidence is “inadequate”, “uncertain” and “definitely defined”, so implementation “may lead to confusion and confusion”.

● Kenya is happy to see that it can have “more time” and said that adopting the proposal will “lead to uncontrolled cannabis abuse and misuse”.

● China hopes that “WHO will continue to strengthen research on the harm and risks of cannabis abuse”.

In fact, the voting on cannabis held by the United Nations is more than twice, but each time it will have a great impact. After all, the right to speak is there, and this meeting has not started first. A series of phenomena all show the results of this meeting may be what people want. If the restrictions on hemp are really relaxed, the hemp industry will definitely have unprecedented grandeur.

Unspoken rules of cannabis extraction technology

As industrial cannabis gradually became the focus of the capital market, commercial giants scrambled to enter, and the value of industrial cannabis extract, cannabinoids, was quickly tapped. There are many types of cannabinoids, and the molecular structure is complex. The extraction technology has become a technical barrier for the industrial cannabis industry, and it is also the core weight of the company’s strength and competitiveness.

Cannabinoid refers to the active ingredient found in Cannabis cannabis, and its receptor system (endogenous cannabinoid system) is present in both mammalian nervous and immune systems. At present, there are more than 130 known cannabinoids, mainly cannabidiol CBD, tetrahydrocannabinol THC, cannabis dilute CBC, cannabidiol CBN, and cannabidiol CBG.

Taking CBD and THC as examples, the physical and chemical properties of the two are very close, and the extraction process is very difficult; the CBD oil products that people often use, only 5% -19% of the active ingredients can be absorbed. In order to achieve better product use, the extraction method of cannabinoids is essential.

How to extract cannabinoids?

CO2 extraction

Carbon dioxide extraction method is divided into supercritical, subcritical and “medium key” categories, does not involve the use of chemical solvents to achieve the purpose of protecting CBD and other beneficial compounds.

CO2 extraction

Solvent extraction

Solvent extraction usually uses ethanol and butane as solvents and extracts from the cannabis plant adjuvant. The combination of the two is good, simple and easy to operate, and can be operated at home. This method uses solvent extraction throughout the process to ensure the extraction rate and purity, avoiding the use and residue of toxic organic solvents such as petroleum ether, and ensuring product safety.

Solvent extraction cbd

Olive oil extraction

Heating the plant at a specific temperature for a period of time activates the plant’s chemicals, adds olive oil, and heats for a period of time to finally obtain cannabinoids.

Olive oil extraction

Dry ice extraction

Cut the cannabis plant into chunks and put it in a bucket, cover with ice, invert, and then filter the mixture multiple times with a mesh bag to finally dry the extract until it becomes a powder. This method requires time and effort, but can also be operated at home.

Drikold extraction

In addition, there are many ways to obtain transgenic cannabis, biosynthesis, and chemical synthesis to obtain cannabinoids. The above four are conventional extraction methods.

The goal of cannabinoid extraction technology is to improve the extraction rate and purity of cannabinoids, remove THC residues as much as possible, avoid the use of toxic organic solvents, ensure product safety and environmental protection, and reduce costs as much as possible. In the current method of obtaining cannabinoids, technically sophisticated extraction methods still occupy the mainstream position, and biosynthesis and chemical synthesis are the main directions for obtaining cannabinoids in the future.

Are there advantages and disadvantages of extraction technology?

The extraction of cannabinoids must go through three steps: rough processing, precision processing and purification.

Rough processing refers to the extraction of all cannabinoids (including THC) from industrial cannabis, commonly known as “crude extract”, which cannot be used directly; filtering the crude extract, filtering out THC and other cannabinoids, and obtaining accurate cannabinoids according to demand The refined cannabinoid products can basically meet the market demand; if you want to obtain a higher purity cannabinoid single product, you can carry out the purification operation, through the process of crystallization-purification-recrystallization-repurification, and ultimately get very high purity cannabinoids single product.

Next, let’s take a look at the extraction effect of the solvent extraction method (PS: cannabinoid content is highest in female flowers and leaves in hemp plants).

[Experimental conclusion] According to the high-performance liquid chromatograms of the above-mentioned cannabis floral medicinal herbs and cannabis floral medicinal herbs extracts, after extracting the cannabis floral medicinal herbs through the ethanol solvent, all the five effective components of cannabinoids were proposed, and other impurities The ingredients are not extracted, and the extraction method is efficient and stable. Therefore, the extraction method using ethanol as a solvent is a reliable extraction method.

What about other extraction methods? Please listen to the experts:

Ernie DeMartino, CEO of ASA Process Solutions, headquartered in Texas, USA, has been involved in the design of various system equipment. He has 45 years of experience in the field of industrial cannabis extraction methods. Ernie DeMartino said that the extraction method depends on the amount of cannabis processed and the cannabis terminal For the product, if the quantity of the mosaic raw material to be treated is small, the carbon dioxide extraction method can be used, and if the quantity of the mosaic raw material to be treated is large, the solvent extraction method can be selected. Either way, as long as it can ensure the best results of extracting products, it is economical and practical.

What technology is commonly used in the industry?

At present, the extraction methods commonly used in the industry are carbon dioxide supercritical extraction and solvent extraction.

Carbon dioxide supercritical extraction is the use of supercritical carbon dioxide to dissolve cannabinoids under pressure and temperature to selectively extract components with different polarities, boiling points, and molecular weights. The extracts obtained corresponding to each pressure range are not necessarily single, and then the supercritical fluid is transformed into ordinary gas by means of depressurization and temperature increase to precipitate and purify the required cannabinoids. In the field of industrial cannabis, this extraction method is suitable for individuals, households, or small-scale extraction companies; large-scale specialized extraction factories often use solvent extraction methods, because their technology is stable and suitable for large-scale operations, and the solvents used are food grade Of ethanol is the most healthy and economical.

5 Ways CBD Can Make You Sleep Better

Sleep is one of the most critical survival activities that help maintain our physical and mental well being. Without a proper sleep cycle, the body may so much so that it becomes restless, fatigued, and may lead to health complications. Some of the health complications in severe cases can even lead to death.

There are many sleep-related disorders. These complications have become more and more prevalent. Every year millions of people are diagnosed with sleep-related ailments and are suffering to a grave extent. It has become one of the biggest challenges for medical professionals and researchers to find treatments that are customized to cure these widely ranged sleep-related diseases.

Various sleeping agents and other sedatives come with a high number of adverse side effects that can bring changes that might potentially damage the human body. Recently in the quest for a more effective treatment, CBD or cannabidiol has emerged as an up-and-coming contender. Many studies on CBD and its effect on sleep have shown positive results that indicate a high potential of CBD in helping people sleep better. Also, with the advent of many different companies and corporate houses coming up with a variety of different quality CBD products such as shatter Canada, has made it a feasible option to consider for treating sleeplessness. Let’s delve into more specific details as to how CBD can help people catch up with some sound sleep.

Anxiety Reduction Capability

Many suffer from an anxiety-related issue that prevents people from having a night of good sleep. Often they wake up several times during ]the night or even undergo the torment of seizures during sleep. People suffering from these commonly have lower hormones such as Cortisol. CBD Canada helps to enhance the stress-controlling hormone, Cortisol. It boosts the production of this hormone and impacts the non-REM sleep helping the person fall deeper into sleep. With the help of CBD, the hormonal balance of the body is restored even under immense external stress and can provide better sleep without any worry.

Relaxed Body State

Cramps and muscle pains are often the biggest reasons why people normally don’t sleep properly. One might have heard people complaining about muscle pulls, destroying their sleep cycles, not only for a day but for weeks. CBD is, however, known to ease muscles in the body and relax them, which helps them cool down. For those who suffer tremors from Parkinson’s or the torment of Huntington’s disease, regular consumption of CBD resulted in significant improvement without muscle pain while being provided with better sleep.

No More Nightmares

Despite any concrete studies to prove that CBD can reduce nightmares, it has been reported that people who take regular doses of 2-2.5 mg of CBD regularly have experienced lesser disturbance from nightmares. Nightmares usually happen to those who suffer from complications that arise from the REM sleep cycle. With CBD, however, the REM sleep stage is altered with more sleep receptors helping people sleep deeper. This drastically reduces the frequency of nightmares and helps people sleep better at night.

Trauma Relief

Sleep problems as a result of trauma, both mental or physical, affect many people. Post-traumatic stress disorders  (PTSD) can lead to insomnia and improper sleep cycles. These disorders usually disturb all sleep stages in emphasis to the REM cycle. Their mental function is compromised in this due process, and sleep becomes scarce. In fact, CBD has actually been able to help people with PTSD. It reduces anxiety, traumatic stress, and regulates the flow of rich blood to the brain for better cognitive function. It even helps people with different types of trauma by providing regulated proper sleep cycles that result in accelerated recovery.For instant relief,shop for CBD oil online at CBDfx.com and reap the benefits.

Lesser Somnolence

The sleep and wake receptors of the body are very crucial in maintaining proper cycles. In the case of their deficit, it would lead to an imbalance of sleeping trends. Imbalance in sleep can be day-sleepiness and insomnia, which can wreak havoc for many people. CBD helps to regulate the sleep receptors to prevent the same from happening and also prevents the hindering of productivity and stops  health complications that may arise from these erratic sleep cycles. Overall the biological clock that runs within the body is properly functional. This maintains the regular life activities of the person in an intact state.

Other advantages, such as the ability to relieve pain and anti-inflammatory properties that aim to suppress pain instead of providing a sedative effect, along with its close to none side effects, have proclaimed CBD as a savior for many. In all, to what extent CBD can fight the battle against sleep disorders may vary. However, due to the few reasons mentioned above, CBD has shown promise to relieve those who suffer from adverse and dire symptoms of different sleep disorders and help them go to sleep at night without any worry

Young people whose lives are ruined by insomnia, CBD can help

According to statistics from the World Health Organization, the global rate of sleep disorders is 27%. The sleep survey results published by the China Sleep Research Association in 2016 show that the incidence of insomnia in Chinese adults is as high as 38.2%, and more than 300 million Chinese have sleep disorders, and this data is still rising year by year.

Nowadays insomnia is more and more common among young people, but there is no fundamental solution. From listening to light music, counting sheep, drinking milk to sleeping pills, in order to fight insomnia, you simply do not know how hard this generation of young people are. In recent years, melatonin seems to have become the last life-saving straw for modern insomniacs, but this straw has been reminded by CCTV that it may increase the burden on the body.

Melatonin has been pulled down from the altar – limited effects and with side effects

Melatonin is a natural hormone secreted by the pineal gland of the human brain. In the environment with little light at night, melatonin secretion increases, helping to fall asleep. When the light is sufficient in the morning, it will inhibit melatonin secretion. The basic principle of melatonin health products is to regulate sleep by increasing the secretion of melatonin.

Melatonin health products can not regulate all insomnia, and have certain effects on the following two situations:

Old people with simple sleep disorders: With the increase of age, the amount of melatonin secretion in the body will gradually decrease, so old people often have sleep disorders or disorders, in this case.

People with jet lag: Melatonin is suitable for sleep disorders caused by shift work or jet lag.

Melatonin sleep

However, clinically, melatonin is mostly used as a dietary supplement or health care product to adjust jet lag, and can only play an auxiliary role, and does not mean that it has a therapeutic effect. Moreover, the effect of melatonin in improving sleep is mainly reflected in helping to fall asleep. There is no significant improvement in problems such as poor sleep quality during sleep, easy to wake up, and short sleep time.

In addition, it is even more vigilant that the long-term use of large amounts of melatonin is harmful:

Increase the risk of stroke, leading to diseases of the central nervous system: The elderly are not recommended to take, because taking high doses of melatonin may promote cerebral blood vessel contraction, increasing the risk of stroke.

Infertility: Some studies have pointed out that some melatonin products on the market are too high in dosage. Long-term large-dose use may cause hypothermia and release too much prolactin to cause infertility.

Affect the secretion of hormones in the body: Since melatonin itself is also a hormone, and comes from the secretion of the brain, long-term or large-scale, non-standard use of exogenous melatonin will affect the secretion of melatonin and may cause the entire endocrine System disorders cause other diseases.

Is it insomnia?

Before treating insomnia as a serious physical distress, it is necessary to judge whether it is really insomnia. The “Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Insomnia in Chinese Adults” establishes diagnostic criteria for insomnia in Chinese adults:

Insomnia shows difficulty falling asleep, and the time to fall asleep exceeds 30 minutes;

Decreased sleep quality, impaired sleep maintenance, awakenings ≥ 2 times throughout the night, early waking, and decreased sleep quality;

Total sleep time time is reduced, usually less than 6 hours.

It is also accompanied by daytime dysfunction, including:

Fatigue or general malaise;

Attention, attention maintenance ability or memory loss;

Decreased learning, work and / or social skills;

Mood swings or irritability;

Sleepy during the day

Decreased interest and energy;

Increased tendency to make mistakes during work or driving;

Tension, headache, dizziness, or other physical symptoms related to lack of sleep;

Over-focus on sleep.

Fatigue or general malaise;

How to deal with insomnia?

If the judgment is indeed insomnia, non-pharmacological treatment can be given priority.

Good habits: Find out bad life and sleep habits, establish good sleep habits, and create a comfortable sleeping environment. Even if you are not sleepy, go to bed regularly, and set the alarm clock to wake up regularly, do not drink strong tea and coffee, do not eat enough before bed, do strenuous exercise, do not watch TV or play mobile phones, computers, you can read, write, draw, and do some relaxing Let yourself relax.

Sleep restriction: shorten the bed time of night sleep, increase the continuity of sleep, improve sleep efficiency, and increase the fatigue of the night by prohibiting daytime naps, and gradually extend the night sleep time after the symptoms improve.

How to deal with insomnia?

Stimulation control: Whether it is difficult to fall asleep or wake up prematurely, do not stay awake for a long time in bed, but get up to do something else. Reducing the time to awaken while in bed can eliminate the negative link between the unconscious bed and the undesirable consequences of depression and worry, and rebuild the positive and clear link between bed and sleep.

Music therapy: Soft and soothing music can reduce sympathetic nerve excitement, anxiety and stress response, and can also disperse attention from the difficulty of falling asleep, so that people can relax and improve sleep.

Insomnia and anxiety always happen together

Where does insomnia come from? The Mayo Clinic divides the causes of insomnia into the following:

Mental health disorders such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression

Caused by drugs, some drugs being taken may interfere with the sleep cycle

Physical conditions such as chronic pain and restless leg syndrome can affect sleep

Caffeine, especially caffeine intake before going to sleep at night

Environmental factors, such as noise or uncomfortable beds

Among the many factors that cause insomnia, environmental factors can be improved by hardware facilities, such as comfortable beds, shaded curtains, etc., but the state of anxiety and stress is not easy to adjust.

How to deal with insomnia?

Poor mental state during the day caused by insomnia caused by anxiety and stress may in turn increase the stress before going to bed, and I hope to get a good night’s sleep, so as to fall into a vicious circle.

Studies have found that patients with chronic insomnia are more likely to suffer from mental illnesses such as anxiety or depression. According to the World Health Organization’s 2017 data, the number of people suffering from depression in China exceeds 54 million, and insomnia is the biggest commonality of depression patients. The proportion of depression patients complaining of sleep problems is as high as 80%.

A new wave of CBD-assisted sleep is emerging in Europe and America

In Europe and the United States, the use of CBD oil to help sleep and relieve stress has become a new trend. Many people understand or try CBD. According to the National Representative Consumer Reports survey in the United States, more than 1/4 of Americans have already tried CBD, and about 1/7 users use CBD daily.

A new wave of CBD-assisted sleep is emerging in Europe and America

Many people use CBD because of anxiety and sleep disorders. According to a sample survey submitted to the FDA by the market research agency ValidCare in December 2019, 22% of the respondents chose CBD for mental problems (75% of them said they had anxiety and stress problems), and other reasons for use included solving Problems with the central nervous system, digestion, sleep disorders, cancer, etc.

The investigation did not find any CBD damage to health. More than 2,000 Americans participated in the survey, ranging in age from 19 to 82 years (average 48 years). 70% of the respondents believe that CBD has a positive effect, 20% said that CBD has achieved unexpected positive effects (such as pain relief, mood improvement and sleep, etc.), and only 5% said there are side effects such as sore throat and digestive problems.

How to deal with insomnia?

Research on CBD (cannabidiol) has only emerged in recent years. Despite the short research time, there are still some studies that have shown that CBD can help solve problems related to insomnia.

1. Reduce anxiety and improve sleep

A paper published in 2019 investigated whether CBD can improve sleep or reduce anxiety. The study involved 72 subjects, of which 47 were anxious and 25 had poor sleep. In the study, the subjects were given 25 milligrams (mg) of CBD in capsule form daily. In the first month, 79.2% of the patients reported a decrease in anxiety level, and 66.7% of the patients reported getting better sleep.

2. Relieve pain and help sleep

Chronic pain may also affect sleep and cause insomnia. A 2018 research review from Frontiers in Pharmacology pointed out that there is substantial evidence to support the claim that CBD relieves pain. The authors point out that by reducing chronic pain, CBD can improve sleep.

3. Higher quality during sleep

In addition, studies have shown that CBD can affect the sleep cycle. In 2014, a research project from a trusted source studied four patients with Parkinson’s disease and found that CBD improved the symptoms of RBD (rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder). (RBD is a sleep disorder, a sleep disorder characterized by dreams and physical activity during REM sleep. Violent behavior at the time of the attack can cause injury and disrupt sleep to the person who shares the bed.)

A 2017 research review also pointed out that CBD may be helpful in the treatment of RBD and shows the potential for treating excessive daytime sleepiness.

Sleep problems are essential to physical and mental health, however, melatonin has limited effect on insomnia problems and has side effects. CBD has proved to be effective in solving insomnia caused by stress, anxiety, pain, etc. at the research level and user survey level. It can also play a role in RBD sleep disorders. For patients with insomnia, it may become a major aid in sleep.

6 Different Stages (life Cycle) Of Cannabis Plant

Cannabis or marijuana is gaining a lot of popularity after its legalization in many states. Some states allow them to buy it from a licensed physician, whereas others let you cultivate it. Marijuana is expensive, and therefore, growing it is a much cheaper deal than buying.

Cultivating marijuana can be tricky, especially for first-time growers. You don’t know what to expect during its lifecycle. A cannabis plant life cycle categorizes into six different stages. In this article, we will go through different life cycles of the marijuana plant to support you to grow the best cannabis plant at your place.

1. The seed and germination

7 Untapped Benefits Of Hemp Buds

Choosing the right marijuana seed is the most crucial step. You must analyze its shape and color to understand if it is a healthy one or not.There are two kinds of seeds. One that germinates into a male plant and the other that evolves into a female plant. The female cannabis plant offers all the real stuff that leads to vaping, smoking, and ingesting. The male plant fertilizes the female plants, which can affect the quality of your cannabis buds. You should try to separate these plants to ensure a higher yield for cannabis buds. The female cannabis plant, once fertilized, focuses on increasing seeds instead of developing buds. Segregate female seeds and label them after removing them from the plant.

After you choose a female seed, it is time to germinate them. The seeds need air, water, warmth, and moisture. Dip the seeds in water and lay them in a moist napkin. The humidity and heat make the seeds sprout. It is the first stage of the marijuana plant life cycle. This step of crack opening the seed into two tiny stems is called germination.

2. Seedling Stage

6 Different Stages (life Cycle) Of Cannabis Plant

A seedling grows from the embryo of the seed. It starts just after the germination of the marijuana seed. You will start noticing the sprouting of seed with two seed leaves. In this stage, the seed grows many leaves with one ridged leaf. By the end of this stage, this seed will start growing mature, bright green colored marijuana leaves. The roots of the plant are small, so avoid overwatering the plant. Give the seedling a clean environment as they are vulnerable to any mold attack. The rate at which a seed grows out of the seedling phase tells you the general growth speed of the plant.

3. Vegetative stage

6 Different Stages (life Cycle) Of Cannabis Plant

When the plant starts its vegetative stage, you will see that the plant is developing thick stems, new nodes, and getting taller. It will start producing new branches with fresh leaves. Throughout this phase, you should provide it with enough nutrients and room to develop along with lukewarm water to prepare the plant for the following stage. Throughout this phase, it requires a lot of sunlight for photosynthesis. In case it receives less sunlight, then its further growth takes a pause.

Take good care of the plant with irrigation too. As the plant has a reasonable rate of growth and gets taller very fast, make sure that you don’t dehydrate it. With the right sunlight, within two to three weeks, you will notice a considerable difference in the plant. A small seedling will grow into one meter-tall tree. Germinating this plant may take a longer time and to reap similar effects one can consume Weed Gummies for a while.

4. Pre-Flowering

It is the stage that reveals the sex of the cannabis plant. In approximately five months, the pre-flowering stage begins with the growth of a pistil or a small pollen sac. A white pistil means a female plant, and a pollen sac represents a male plant.

Some of these seeds may develop hermaphrodite characteristics. These plants are harmful to your marijuana buds as they fertilize on their own and stop the future growth of marijuana buds.

To stop over-fertilization, separate the female plants from male and hermaphroditic plants. If they are too close to females, they pollinate and fertilize the females, leading to the growth of seeds instead of buds.

5. Flowering stage

After segregating the male and female ones, the females are getting ready for the flowering stage. To start seeing flowers with medicinal qualities, you need to reduce its exposure to light. If you are growing it outdoors, then expose it to few daylights, and if you are growing them indoors, then adjust the fluorescent light time. It may sound like a lot of hassle. Therefore, it is a smart choice to go for auto-flowering seeds.

The light exposure rule doesn’t apply while using auto-flowering seeds. These seeds will grow and flower automatically rather than waiting for a specific light cycle. Unlike regular seeds, the reduction of light plays a crucial role in this stage. You will see the display of trichomes on the buds, which changes its color in the harvest phase.

During this stage, the plant begins to generate a sticky substance called resin on its leaves edges. The resin collects at the center of the buds. The resin has high concentrations of THC, which is a psychoactive element, and the buds will grow long white fibers. The duration of this stage varies from strain to strain.

6. Harvest

The harvest time varies for every strain of marijuana. Approximately eight weeks post flowering, and you can begin harvesting your plants. The trichome color starts to change to an orange color. That is the time for harvesting, and if you delay it, then the color would change to dark brown, which is not advisable.

You can start cutting and wiping the buds to use it for various purposes. The leaves and stems of the plants act as tea ingredients.

Conclusion:

The above are the six stages of growing cannabis. Key takeaways will be keeping the males separate from females and going for auto-flowering seeds to avoid dependency on light conditions. Be wary of the harvesting time. So, go ahead and try growing your marijuana plant. Alternatively, you can get lab tested CBD gummies online and relax while your cannabis plant germinates.

7 Untapped Benefits Of Hemp Buds

The use of marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes is becoming commonplace nowadays. However, there is a mixed reaction from people when they hear the word cannabis or marijuana. The dark side of marijuana, i.e., the “high” and the “drug addiction,” has led people and governments to behave in a closed manner in the use of cannabis, even though research shows numerous health benefits of cannabis.

That is when hemp buds can come to rescue. The bad rep of marijuana or generally available cannabis is the concentration of a chemical called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that causes the infamous high and addiction in consumers. However, the other chemical present in cannabis, CBD (cannabidiol), is exempt from any psychoactive effects but has numerous health benefits. The good news is hemp buds have the goodness of marijuana without the “high” component. Hemp buds are flowers of the hemp plant (a variety of cannabis plant) that has a high concentration of CBD but a meager (<0.2%) THC content.

In this article, we have compiled seven untapped benefits of hemp buds.

1. Hemp buds for anxiety:

Stress is a part of our daily life. Whether it is meeting the deadlines at the last minute at work or the pressure of the household, our body comes under constant stress. If you are continuously under stress, you can become fearful and develop chronic anxiety. Anxiety can lead to hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.

The high concentration of CBD present in hemp buds decreases the release of the stress hormone cortisol. It stimulates the release of the good mood chemical dopamine and serotonin in the body. Therefore, smoking hemp buds might help you reduce stress and anxiety. When looking to smoke weed, search only for organically grown weed online.

2. Hemp buds to support weight loss:

Weight gain affects a large part of the population, irrespective of the ages. A primary reason for weight gain is reduced metabolism due to abnormal glucose levels as a result of unhealthy food choices.

A Men’s Journal article states that CBD curbs food cravings and regulates blood glucose levels. By improving insulin levels, CBD can help maintain optimum fat metabolism and aid in weight loss. To administer CBD into the body, smoke hemp buds to get an instant effect. The CBD in the hemp buds activates upon heating and enters the bloodstream directly when you inhale the smoke inside the lungs. Therefore, hemp buds might be an excellent choice for supporting weight loss.

3. Hemp buds for pain management:

Pain is an inflammatory reaction inside the boy to deal with any physical stress. Pain may appear in various forms like headaches during highly stressful work, joint pains after massive physical efforts or exercises, or pain may arise as a body ache when a cancer patient undergoes chemotherapy.

According to a study, CBD activates the CB1 receptors in our body to suppress inflammation. The analgesic properties of CBD helps to manage severe chronic pain. Smoking hemp buds or vaping finely ground hemp buds can give you a concentrated dose of CBD. It might be useful to assist in pain management for patients undergoing chemotherapy or for people suffering from knee joint pain due to arthritis.

4. Hemp buds to help in skincare:

As we age, our skin loses the cementitious material collagen and starts to produce aging signs like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging features. Also, the external damage factors like sun exposure, pollution, and junk food take a toll on the skin cells leading to skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and in worst cases, skin cancer.

A Forbes article found that CBD might have healing properties for one of the largest organs in the human body, the skin. Vaping finely ground hemp buds or drinking tea made from hemp buds can give you access to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD that protect the skin from stress. CBD shows promise in preventing acne by reducing the secretion of sebum from the skin. Therefore, look out for quality hemp buds for youthful skin.

5. Hemp buds for better sleep

One of the most significant potential benefits of smoking hemp buds is to relax your mind. According to a study, people who smoked hemp buds before a night’s sleep had a better quality of sleep. Hemp buds have a high quantity of CBD in comparison to THC, and this shows a contributing effect to improving the sleep cycles i.e., an enhanced REM sleep (dream phase) and an increased deep sleep cycle. An increased deep sleep is an indicator of the high quality of sleep. Vaping hemp buds can also help in reducing insomnia tendencies by inducing serotonin release that reduces the chances of nightmares and aids in proper sleep for patients with chronic pain.

6. Hemp buds to aid with exercises:

For active people, athletes, and people who want to maintain a fit body, hemp buds might have good news. In fact, according to an article from Nature magazine, CBD can help achieve and elongate the feeling of Runner’s high during high-intensity workouts. CBD helps in the release of serotonin in the body, which elevates the mood of a person during a workout. It lets you enjoy the exercise rather than the pain of the workout. As a result, smoking hemp buds an hour before a workout might help you stay motivated and give 100% to your exercise. Also, the article said that CBD could aid in post-workout muscle recovery and prevent you from taking long breaks between workout days. Thus, you could consider hemp buds for your next workout.

7. Hemp buds provide a holistic approach to consuming CBD:

Finally, hemp buds are probably the most beneficial way to consume the wonder compound CBD. Unlike other methods like tinctures or CBD isolates, hemp buds give you not just CBD but associated natural chemicals like terpenes that add amazing flavors to the vaping or smoking experience and flavonoids that are phytochemicals which act as antioxidants. Most other methods of taking cannabis concentrate only on CBD and miss out on the other helpful natural ingredients.

Final Thoughts:

Hemp buds come as a great package to provide you with a whole lot of health benefits. They are natural and devoid of any known ill effects. When it comes to using them, you can either smoke them or vape them by grinding and putting the mix in a vaping device. Either way, make sure you consume or inhale hemp buds that are organically farmed and devoid of any harmful toxins.
