This is the exact stuff featured in Ben Greenfield’s groundbreaking article “How To Get All The Health Benefits Of Weed Without Actually Smoking Weed“, which is a must-read to understand the complete science behind CBD.
If you’ve seen the host of research on this 100% legal form CBD, then you’ve no doubt heard of the benefits of CBD extracts and CBD oils for everything from athletic recovery, sports performance, sleeping, anti-inflammation, anxiety and much more. In addition to the article cited above, Ben Greenfield has explored both THC and CBD components of cannabis, hemp and marijuana in posts such as “The Effect Of Weed On Exercise: Is Marijuana A Performance-Enhancing Drug?” and podcasts such as “Is Weed Healthy? The Controversial Truth About The Science Of Marijuana.“. Although FDA regulations prevent us from making any health related claims as it relates to people taking CBD, you can do your own research. For example simply do an internet search for “CBD health” or visit the ProjectCBD website and you’re on your way.
You’re about to discover how CBD works, how to use it properly, and how to ensure you’re not wasting your money on CBD that is non-absorbable (which is sadly the case with most CBD).
Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulates everything from relaxation, to eating, sleeping, inflammation and even cognitive function. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout your body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in your brain and immune system.
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, a prominent naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in cannabis that comprises up to 40% of the plant and helps to regulate your ECS. After THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) – which is the psychoactive component of cannabis most often associated with marijuana – CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid, especially when it comes to medical benefits and addressing issues such as insomnia and anxiety. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
Despite popular perceptions of marijuana, cannabidiol is a cannabinoid devoid of any type of strange psychoactive effect, although it can help with cognitive performance, memory, focus, etc.. In other words, unlike THC, CBD won’t get you “high” (although CBD can actually help to counteract any unpleasant psychoactive effects of THC taking any paranoia edge off of marijuana) and CBD from hemp is 100% legal everywhere the USA, which means you can order it online, you can carry it on airplanes, and you can use it anywhere you’d like.
The problem is, CBD oil, capsules, powders, etc. are not easily absorbed by your body. They can spoil and become contaminated. They smell bad. They often taste bad too. And they’re not water soluble. Your body is composed of over 60% water, so what good is a product that cannot dissolve in water? This is why most CBD hemp oil products have an extremely poor bioavailability and you simply don’t experience or feel any of the effects of the CBD. Watch the video below to see what we mean:
Using an extraction process called “hybrid-nanoengineering”, which basically involves a combination of CBD with turmeric herbal extracts, it is actually possible to get a completely bioavailable and absorbable form of CBD. The way that hybrid-nanoengineering works is that the cannabinoids and terpenoids are extracted from the cannabis herbs and then blended in a lab with curcuminoids to create CBD particles that are on the nanoparticle size level. Nano particles (1/100 the width of a human hair) are easier for your body to absorb and transport to where they are needed within your body. This means that a hybrid-nanoengineered CBD is over 10x more bioavailable in the body than any other oil based CBD, CBD tincture or CBD capsule, and it means that just 10mg of a nano particle CBD is the equivalent of taking at least 100mg of oil based CBD.
The result of hybrid-nanoengineering with turmeric is a raw oil that is high in CBD, virtually free of THC (less than 0.05%,) and complete with a full spectrum of other cannabinoids and terpenes, which work synergistically to make CBD even more effective. The oil is then encapsulated, and the result is an extremely absorbable CBD capsule, along with all the benefits of curcumin. The video above demonstrates the absorption difference between water soluble CBD that’s been hybrid-nanoengineered, compared to regular, non-water soluble CBD.
You now know:
- CBD is the 100% legal and non-psychoactive form of marijuana, and can actually combat unpleasant effects of smoking weed, such as paranoia or over-excitability…
- CBD acts on completely different receptors and enzymes than THC, resulting in significant effects on anxiety, depression and stress…
- CBD is completely safe and non-addictive…
- Pharmaceutical companies can’t patent CBD unless they turn it into a synthetic chemical first…
- There are shocking demonstrations of the potency of CBD for several serious neurological conditions such as epilepsy, MS and cerebral palsy…
- CBD can also be used to balance hormones, reduce anxiety, lower inflammation and chronic pain, combat metabolic syndrome, and reduce obesity…
- It is very difficult for your body to absorb CBD, unless the CBD has been blended with curcuminoids and made bioavailable in a nanoparticle size… …
- You can legally purchase hemp-based CBD anywhere in America and in most countries of the world…
GreenfieldFitnessSystems has now partnered with the only company in the world that has patented the nanoengineering of blending curcuminoids with the cannabidiols and terpenoids in CBD to create the most absorbable form of CBD you will ever find. We call it “NatureCBD”.
Because NatureCBD is derived from hemp, you can take it through any airport, anywhere in the country, and also unlike weed, NatureCBD is not banned by any governing bodies of sport like USADA, WADA or the NCAA.
Three other things…
The hemp used to make NatureCBD is extracted from a special variety of sustainably raised, organic hemp that is specifically bred to contain naturally high concentrations of CBD, while still containing all of the natural cannabinoids, terpenoids, and other compounds of the original plant. The resulting oil then is strictly tested for cleanliness, and has zero pesticides or heavy metals.
The starch “filler” is from non-GMO brown rice grown in the fields in India, which is also where the organic turmeric comes from. The hypromellose vegan capsules contain no soy, no nuts, no sugar, no yeast, no gluten, no dairy, no chemicals, no artificial flavors, no artificial coloring, and are lab tested to be free from toxins and other solvents.
And just to enhance the peaceful, calm, focus that NatureCBD gives you, we’ve also added to this unique custom formulation two big de-stressing and focus enhancing agents…
Scientific studies support the Indian herb ashwagandha’s ability not only to relieve stress, but also to protect brain cells against the deleterious effects of our modern lifestyles. For example, in validated models of anxiety and depression, ashwagandha has been demonstrated to be as effective as some tranquilizers and antidepressant drugs. Specifically, oral administration of ashwagandha for five days showed anxiety-relieving effects similar to those achieved by the anti-anxiety drug lorazepam (Ativan®), and antidepressant effects similar to those of the prescription antidepressant drug imipramine (Tofranil®).
Stress can cause increased peroxidation of lipids, while decreasing levels of the antioxidant enzymes catalase and glutathione peroxidase. When ashwagandha extract was administered by researchers one hour before a daily stress-inducing procedure, all of the these parameters of free radical damage normalized in a dose-dependent manner.
Premature aging associated with chronic nervous tension is also related to increased oxidative stress, For example, in a remarkable animal study, examination of the brains of sacrificed animals showed that 85% of the brain cells observed in the animals exposed to chronic stress showed signs of degeneration. It is this type of cellular degeneration that can lead to long-term cognitive difficulties. Amazingly, when ashwagandha was administered to chronically stressed animals, the number of degenerating brain cells was reduced by 80%.
In one of the most complete human clinical trials to date, researchers studied the effects of a standardized extract of ashwagandha on the negative effects of stress, including elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The results were impressive, with participants showing increased energy, reduced fatigue, better sleep, and an enhanced sense of well-being…
…along with a reduction of cortisol levels up to 26%!
Using a validated model of damaged nerve cells and impaired nerve-signaling pathways, researchers have that demonstrated that ashwagandha supports significant regeneration of the axons and dendrites of nerve cells along with the reconstruction of synapses, the junctions where nerve cells communicate with other cells. This means ashwagandha extract helps to reconstruct entire networks of your nervous system, and has huge implications for any athlete using CBD to manage head injuries or chronic pain.
Researchers have also found that ashwagandha helps support the growth of nerve cell dendrites, which allow these cells to receive communications from other cells, and that ashwagandha helps promote the growth of both normal and damaged nerve cells, suggesting that the herb may boost healthy brain cell function as well as benefit diseased nerve cells.
Most ashwagandha supplements have failed review by ConsumerLabs, so we opted for a 100% water-soluble bioavailable formulation of ashwagandha, using the same nanoengineering technique as the CBD…
2. Lemon Balm
Lemon balm, AKA “Melissa Officinalis” was dedicated to the goddess Diana, and used medicinally by the Greeks some 2,000 years ago. In the Middle Ages, lemon balm was used to soothe tension, to dress wounds, and as a cure for toothache, skin eruptions, mad dog bites, crooked necks, and sickness during pregnancy, and as a medicinal plant, lemon balm has traditionally been employed against bronchial inflammation, earache, fever, flatulence, headaches, high blood pressure, influenza, mood disorders, palpitations, toothache and vomiting.
Because it provides the body with a calming effect, lemon balm is also used for nervous agitation, sleeping problems, functional gastrointestinal complaints, menstrual cramps and urinary spasms. It is thought that the volatile oils in lemon balm contain chemicals that relax muscles, particularly in the bladder, stomach, and uterus, thereby relieving cramps, gas, and nausea. Because of its calming effect without the potential to create the side effects of a sedative, lemon balm is also widely used to treat stress, anxiety and insomnia. This ability, along with lemon balm’s antiviral and anti-autoimmune characteristics have also made it useful for the treatment of thyroid issues chronic fatigue syndrome.
Recently, lemon balm produced an unexpected result: it greatly increased the ability to concentrate and perform word and picture tasks. In a study at Northumbria University in England, students were tested for weeks while using either lemon balm or a placebo. The students did significantly better on the tests after taking lemon balm and continued to post improved scores for up to six hours after taking the herb. The students taking lemon balm were noted to be calmer and less stressed during the tests.
Similar to the ashwagandha, the NatureCBD only contains lemon balm that is 100% bioavailable.
Here’s a comparison of the nanoengineered, turmeric blended, ashwagandha, lemon-balm blend NatureCBD to other CBD products:
