Different Ways to Take CBD Oil

Published

on

Nowadays, many people want a healthier lifestyle with natural products. It can be difficult to find alternatives to products that you can buy at the drugstore, but luckily we have discovered many benefits of harnessing the natural properties of the cannabis plant. One compound that has gained a lot in traction is cannabidiol (CBD). Unlike the THC found in marijuana, CBD has no psychoactive properties. This way, you can reap the health benefits without feeling “high”.

Many people have used CBD to help regulate their sleep patterns, and its use enables your body to get the rest it needs without affecting your mental state. Here are some ways you can consume CBD to help your health.

You can smoke or vape CBD

Smoking cannabis has always been the most popular way to consume it, but we know that smoking too long is not good for your lungs. An alternative to this method is CBD vape oil. Smoking through a vape allows you to smoke CBD in a more discreet way as it does not have the typical scent associated with cannabis. Coupled with the quick dissolution and great flavors, the effects are largely the same.

Food or drink


One of the easiest and healthiest ways to take CBD is through ingesting food or drink. Since it is easy to get CBD oil, many people have experimented with the properties and flavors to come up with different CBD recipes. There are also different beverages that have been infused with different types and flavors, be it water, tea or soda. Everyone’s potency can vary, so it’s always good to start slowly.

These products allow you to get the effects of CBD quickly without enduring an unusual taste. Everyone reacts differently to the use of CBD, so taking it is not a universal approach. It’s best to start in small amounts and work your way up to see how you feel.

Take CBD topically or sublingually

If you are taking CBD for medicinal purposes, it is possible to add it to your daily medication or vitamin routine, such as the capsules offered by Hemmfy CBD products. Some people just put a few drops under their tongue with an eyedropper before bed, which is an easy way to get them into your system. There are many topical options for people with skin problems or inflammation. If you have neck pain, you can try rubbing oil, cream, or rolls fortified with CBD onto your skin. Some of these options are also fortified with other natural elements such as eucalyptus or peppermint.

Over time, we’ve discovered the benefits and uses of CBD oil and this industry is not going anywhere any time soon. There are products for everyone, including pets, that can help relieve anxiety and other physical symptoms. There are many options as the industry continues to innovate, so do your research to determine which product is best for you.

Natural Remedies for Everyday Ailments

Published

on

Plants have been used to treat infections, relieve pain, and cure disease for millennia. Pharmacists were the chemists of antiquity. They mixed up all kinds of herbs to formulate medicines. Botanists, witch doctors, shamans, and other healers routinely try their hand at herbal remedies for all types of ailments. Many modern medicines are made from plant extracts and organic compounds. Indeed, regulated drugs in use today contain organic material in processed form.

Various herbal remedies for preventing and curing diseases have gained popularity in recent years. This billion dollar market contains all kinds of valuable nutritional supplements including protein, creatine, L-glutamine, and others. A growing chorus of researchers in the established medical community are now advocating certain mushrooms because of the tremendous health benefits they offer. Mushrooms have long had tremendous healing properties as one of the most important superfoods in the world. They are especially useful for strengthening the immune system, with accompanying health benefits for joints, muscles, bones, mood, sleep, and stress relief.

World-class research scientists from Cannabotech – a botanical pharmacy – have formulated powerful patented solutions from high quality traditional mushrooms to boost the immune system. By mixing the nutrient-rich elements in high-quality mushrooms with pharmaceutical-grade CBD oil, far-reaching benefits can now be achieved. These include health maintenance, immune system benefits, sleep support, stress relief, improved muscles and joints, and bone support. This company’s research team focuses on different types of mushrooms, in particular:

  • Oyster mushrooms – Pleurotus ostreatus, these mushrooms require high humidity and offer exceptional nutritional value, with benefits for the immune system and heart health. They are rich in anti-inflammatory agents and have powerful antioxidant effects on the body.
  • Reishi mushrooms – This popular mushroom is known for its cancer-fighting abilities and immune system boosting properties. It was reported that in a specific cancer study of 4,000 breast cancer survivors, 59% of them ate reishi mushrooms. There is promising data to suggest that these mushrooms are an effective food for fighting cancer.
  • Enokitake mushrooms – Also known as enoki mushrooms, these superfoods are the mushrooms of choice for soups, risottos and stir-fries. This edible mushroom looks like a pile of pasta. They are common across Japan and contain many ingredients such as iron, copper, phosphorus, selenium, potassium, niacin, calcium, and fiber.

These edible mushrooms have tremendous medicinal properties, especially when combined with high quality CBD.

Why are mushrooms considered such an incredible biopharmaceutical breakthrough?

According to the NCBI, the rudimentary mushroom has been consumed since ancient times. It was the Greeks who encouraged their soldiers to eat mushrooms as they believed it would strengthen them in battle. In fact, the Romans named mushrooms as the food of the gods. Further afield, to the east, the ancient Chinese regarded mushrooms as the “elixir of life”.

For millennia, the basic mushroom has met the nutritional, health and wellness needs of mankind. In addition to being low in calories, these foods are also rich in nutrients. Mushrooms have no cholesterol and are extremely low in sodium, carbohydrates and fats.

Carmiero et al (2013) published a report on the composition of edible mushrooms. Popular mushrooms like Pleurotus sajor-caju contain 37.4% protein, 1% fat, 6.3% ash and 55.3% carbohydrates. Other types of mushrooms such as Agaricus bisporus contain 14.1% protein, 2.2% fat, 9.7% ash and 74% carbohydrates.

Although the numbers vary from edible mushroom to edible mushroom, it is clear that these superfoods are very useful forms of nutrition. About 100+ medicinal properties are evident in mushrooms and mushrooms. These include a wide range of protective immune-boosting properties, in particular:

  • Antiviral
  • Antifungal agent
  • antioxidant
  • Anticancer
  • Antidiabetic drugs
  • Anti allergic
  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-parasitic
  • detoxification
  • Immunomodulating
  • Anticholesterolemia
  • Hepatoprotective effects
  • Cardiovascular protection

Mushrooms are ideal foods filled with bioactive compounds thanks to their high protein and high content of minerals, fiber, vitamins and low fat. Sucrose and fructose are found in small amounts in edible mushrooms, while trehalose, mannitol and glucose are abundant.

It is the bioactive proteins in mushrooms that have pharmaceutical value. The biological activities include ribosomal inactivating proteins, ribonucleases, fungal immunomodulatory proteins and lectins. All of these are powerful ways to fight cancer. The polyunsaturated fatty acids have been linked to lower cholesterol levels, and the phenolic compounds also have antiallergenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Mushrooms may be small, but they definitely deliver!
