Another marker of obesity and diabetes includes damage to liver cells. The liver is a major organ in the conversion between stored energy forms and useable energy forms in the body. Overburdening that system, such as with high fructose intake, can have disastrous effects. Inflammation within the liver indicates the onset of dysfunction, and possibly non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Anyway as you may have guessed, I’m back to lifting weights. I’m not lifting anywhere near the tonnage I lifted prior to the accident, but then again I’m not getting any younger either. LOL. In all honesty though, I feel way better now than I’ve felt in a long while and I can’t wait to see what another month’s worth of CBD oil under the tongue will bring.
This is likely why CBD is capable of stimulating appetite among people that are in dire need of nutrition (such as cancer patients on chemotherapy), while at the same time suppressing appetite in those who need to lose weight. The active compound helps keep the body in balance, so if you need weight gain it can help you eat, but if you are overweight, it may be able to help curb your desire to chow down.
But isn’t that because we are more willing to break our laws? Think about it. Saudi Arabia, for example, has much stricter laws than we do governing every aspect of life. Why aren’t they and countries like them the #1 incarcerators? I’m thinking either because their citizens are more law abiding by nature or are just plain scared of the barbaric punishments.
Unlike THC, which primarily binds to CB-1 receptors located in the brain, CBD works in the body by manipulating receptors throughout organ tissues, the immune system, the pain response system, the hormonal system, and other whole-body regulatory systems. Basically, since its receptors have been found to exist in virtually every cell and tissue type in the body, CBD is believed to work on every aspect of human health and behavior – from the subcellular level to the whole-body leve and beyond.
CBD oil is good for bodybuilding and muscle growth in the sense that it eases inflammation, helps with muscle recovery, and reduces pain after workouts. This makes it easier for you to increase your muscle mass without putting your body under too much stress. The naturally relaxing and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD help your muscles to recover more quickly.
Bluebird Botanicals is a liquid extract oil blend. It contains a variety of hemp extracts. This formulation includes both CBDa (non-decarboxylated) and CBD (decarboxylated) forms of cannabinoids using a 1:1 ratio. The hemp extract is steam distilled which ensures that all the beneficial terpenes remain intact. It also contains a variety of ketones, aldehydes, and organic extra virgin olive oil.
There are some important points to keep in mind, though. The recent passing of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 changed the classification of hemp from a Schedule I substance to an “agricultural commodity,” paving the way for hemp and hemp-derived substances to be bought and sold legally. It’s also worth pointing out that the DEA recently reclassified some CBD (with a THC content <.0%) from a Schedule I, illegal substance, to the less-restrictive Schedule 5 drugs, as long as an item has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Lastly, the Farm Bill lifted restrictions on sales and transportation, as well as possession of CBD derived from hemp as long as the hemp:
Since the loosening of legal policy around cannabis and the growing evidence in support of its health benefits, CBD oil has become an integral part of a lot of peoples supplement stack, used as a recovery aid by helping to improve sleep and reduce exercise-induced inflammation. Personally, I’ve been taking it for a few weeks have felt real, tangible improvements in my sleep quality.
Furthermore, a study published in the Journal of Neuroendocrinology has suggested that the ECS is capable of stimulating specific areas of the body involved in metabolism, such as the skeletal muscles and GI tract. This happens due to the presence of anandamide and 2-AG, which are two naturally-occurring compounds in the body that interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Green Gorilla marks itself out by simply blending its flagship line of CBD oils with organically produced extra virgin olive oil – and nothing else. And, as the company states, there’s a benefit to this beyond assuring the product’s purity. In particular, olive oil “has synergistic effects in combination with CBD,” and according to Green Gorilla’s website, it’s “also able to deliver the CBD to the parts of [the] body that need it most.” The products are certainly affordable, too: its 150 mg pure CBD oil comes in at $25.99, for instance, making it a smart choice for new users. And anyone still uncertain about the potential effects of Green Gorilla’s products may have their questions answered by the convenient “science” section of the manufacturer’s website, which neatly explains the difference between THC – the cannabinoid that makes people “high” – and CBD.
