CBD & Pain Management

Did you know that more people struggle with daily pain and discomfort than patients suffering from cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined? Bodily aches and pains are a serious issue negatively affecting the lives of people from all walks of life, professions and social statuses. Of those people who report they struggle daily with pain a full 1/3rd of them describe their pain as completely debilitating rendering them unable to function normally at home, work or in their day to day lives.

When you struggle daily with this kind of overpowering physical discomfort the discovery of a safe and effective method of treatment can quite literally function as a lifeline allowing the patient to regain control over and find enjoyment in the minutia of their daily lives again. Without a constant focus on the displeasure and pain they are enduring the simple pleasures of life can be appreciated again and participation in the responsibilities of daily life becomes much less of a chore.

Many of the traditional medications prescribed to people who find themselves in this situation come with a host of unpleasant and unwanted side effects and in the case of opioids which are utilized in the most extreme cases the potential for developing a crippling physical addiction can be very high. By turning to CBD and THC based products instead people with pain management issues can reclaim some control over their lives without risking a dependency on a drug that has wreaked havoc in cities all over North America and beyond.

How Does CBD Help With Pain?

CBD or cannabidiol is an essential ingredient in the vast majority of most of the best known cannabis derived medicines on the marketplace today. The reason it has enjoyed some recent time in the limelight as an exciting new treatment for a wide range of health concerns including chronic pain is because of the natural interaction between the cannabinoids in marijuana and the endocannabinoid system found within every living person. The endocannabinoid system is partially responsible for the regulation of moods, the retention of memories and the way pain is experienced by the human body.

When you pair the effects of cannabis products on the endocannabinoid system all human beings posses with the natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities of the cannabis plant you end up with a powerful and potent pain reliever, mood booster and muscle relaxant ideal for the treatment of annoying physical aches and pains as well as psychological concerns like stress, anxiety, paranoia or general discomfort.

Knowing these facts it is no wonder that thc massage oil or cannabis massage treatments are taking the medical and health and wellness communities by storm. Weed massage oil is ideal for relieving bodily aches and pains, ridding the body of stress and anxieties while providing an overwhelming sense of well being and reinvigoration.

Cannabis Infused Massage Oil

If you are curious about using some weed massage oil yourself there are a few methods you can use to set yourself up correctly. The first and most simple method would be to purchase some tincture or another form of CBD and THC infused cannabis extract and add it to a simple massage oil. You will only need a small amount to add the beneficial effects of CBD and THC to your oil so a small bottle of tincture will last some time if you use this method! You can make a simple and easy to use cannabis massage oil at home with just these simple ingredients at any time by simply mixing them together in a bowl or bottle before use.

If you would like to have full control over every aspect of the production process you could look into the various methods for how to make cannabis oil for pain relief. Let’s take a brief and broad overview of the methods used to do this - if you’d like to learn more in greater detail the web is full of in depth resources for you to utilize!

First you will need to gather some essential oils - any variety you like is fine this is completely up to personal preference. There are a seemingly endless array of options available to you but as we are interested primarily in making a cannabis infused massage oil with relaxing and pain relieving properties eucalyptus, rosemary, frankincense and black pepper are great essential oils to start with.
Eucalyptus is well known for its potent cooling and soothing effect on sore muscles and natural pain relieving qualities. An excellent choice for reducing inflammation, pain and swelling. Rosemary also works well to reduce pain and inflammation giving your mixture an added boost. Frankincense improves moisture retention in your skin enhancing the oil’s ability to work and black pepper provides a warming counterbalance to the soothing cool eucalyptus which helps loosen up the body and reduces pain and swelling.

Simply add these essential oils in small amounts - 5 drops of each give or take should be about enough for a small batch - to an oil based cannabis concentrate that is rich in THC and CBD. Then you can use your new cannabis massage oil for your next massage session for yourself or your partner! A small jar or bottle should work great for storing any of the remaining weed massage oil but don’t worry about making a lot at a time. You can easily make more quickly and any cannabis you leave stored for long periods will begin to lose its potency gradually over time. Better to just mix up a quick fresh batch the next time it is needed!

Cannabis Massage Oil Effects

Why should you consider making your next massage a cannabis enhanced experience? The beneficial effects are many and when coupled with the already relaxing and rejuvenating experience of a great massage you set yourself up for a sensory experience that is out of this world! But this is not to be confused with the psychoactive euphoria produced by cannabis products when they are smoked or ingested. No matter how potent with THC your cannabis extract is it is not possible to absorb enough of it through the skin and into the bloodstream to produce the “high” mental and physical state cannabis is most famous for.

Depending on your personal outlook this news about cannabis massage oil effects is either a great relief or a disappointment! Regardless of your ideal goals with a thc and cbd oil massage treatment there are fantastic reasons to add it into your health and wellness routine. If you are not comfortable with the psychoactive euphoria cannabis can produce and are prone to paranoia or anxiety when it comes to cannabis use a massage oil treatment might just be the best point of entry into the world of medical cannabis. You can experience the deep healing and rejuvenation that THC and CBD products can provide without concern for losing control over your state of mind.

If you are a veteran psychonaut let down by the news that you can’t just slather on a bottle full of high powered THC concentrate and have your mind and body ascend to higher planes then the good news for you is that a CBD and THC enriched massage oil can help to catapult your next smoke out session or mid-trip massage into a hyperspace of new sensual and satisfying physical experiences while also providing your body with a powerful restorative.

This is because even though the THC and CBD do not cross into the bloodstream through the skin, human skin also contains the same CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the nervous system, brain and internal organs which act as binding locations for THC and CBD. Although the activation of these receptors does not result in the same euphoric mind and body state you may be familiar with, they are perfectly suited to compliment the practice of massage as they act in this case as muscle relaxants, pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. When added to a mixture with other soothing and invigorating essential oils you are in for cannabis massage oil effects that add up to a sensual, soothing, healing experience that will penetrate deep into your skin and leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!

If you’re shopping for high CBD or THC strains of cannabis to make an oil based concentrate, you can stock up with the many great AAAA craft cannabis strains available at Haute Health! Some great features currently available in store include AA Kief, THC Distillate, Afghan Hash and CBD Gummy Fish!

Coffee… for the majority of us, it’s the catalyst for how successfully we start our day.  The speed and efficiency at which we can get that dark liquid gold into our bodies can determine being on-time to work or school, help you find enough energy to hit the gym in the morning, or even boost your mind & body to the point of making that all-important Monday meeting.  Even if you’re one of those otherworldly beings who claims “they don’t need coffee”, you can’t deny that java is the morning lifeblood for many business professionals, athletes, students and people who live an active (and productive) lifestyle.

Cannabis… now there’s a word you don’t often associate with mornings.  Although there are some proponents of “waking and baking”, most people don’t look to this wondrous weed for a boost.  In fact, many stoners rely on marijuana for quite the opposite - to relax, to chill out, take the edge off, or aid them in having fun.  Where coffee and tea are typically preferred tools for improving productivity, motivation or energy (all work-related exploits), cannabis is mostly associated with socializing, personal time and recharging after a long day (obviously, personal-time and leisurely pursuits).

What if we told you that many Canadians are actually combining these seemingly divergent commodities? Marijuana infused coffee is quickly becoming one of the most popular trends in the world of weed.  Weed coffee is easy to make, customizable and can be a very simple way to get your daily dose of dro.  Not only can you combine any of your favorite lattes or cappuccinos with THC or CBD, but you can actually improve the jolt of energy you get from caffeine or cut down on the java jitters.

With companies like Starbucks & Tim Hortons essentially ingrained in our day-to-day lives, it’s only a matter of time until cannabis coffee makes its way into the mainstream of everyday mornings. Let’s take a look at the current and future trends surrounding weed infused coffee beverages in Canada.  Time to wake up, smell the coffee, and taste the buds!

CANNABIS INFUSED COFFEE

What exactly do we mean by “cannabis coffee”? Simply put, coffee beans brewed with marijuana infused water or adding THC/CBD tinctures to your cup of joe constitutes weed coffee.  The simplest way to have cannabis coffee is to brew or buy your favorite grounds, add in your desired level of THC or CBD through cannabis oil, and enjoy.  There are many other ways to brew a cup of mary java, but for the most part the idea is to combine cannabis infused oils with coffee or tea.

Why do cannabis infused beverages typically use cannabis oil? Cannabinoids like Tetrahydrocannabinol or Cannabidiol are not actually water soluble, so to introduce them into a beverage like coffee we need to combine them with a base like coconut or hemp seed oil.  Cannabutter coffee is an age-old tradition among veteran stoners, and it’s the same principle as weed coffees today, but we’ve learned how to optimize the potency, consistency and overall quality of our ganja java drinks.

For starters, we’ll provide a simple but timeless recipe for cannabis coffee that has been brewing for decades:

What you need:

  • 750 ml - 1 L of water (or as needed to fill your coffee pot)
  • Coffee grounds of choice (it’s all good stuff, man!)
  • Coconut oil, hemp seed oil (or your oil of choice, just make sure you enjoy the taste!)
  • Your cannabis strain of choice (again, it’s all good, pick the one that suits you best)
  • ½ - 1 gram of weed per 750 ml of water is a good place to start, but how potent your pot of pot-coffee is completely dependent on your tolerance, what strain of marijuana you’re using, or whether you have a medical need for cannabis or not.
  • Spices, additional flavors like chocolate syrup or caramel, whipped-cream… whatever you enjoy in your cup of coffee
  • How to make weed coffee (1 batch, 1-2 people):

    Before we begin, if you’ve never made cannabutter or cannabis infused oil before, check out our helpful blog on how to make your own cannabis infused coconut oil.  Alternatively, if you’re not a fan of DIY, you can buy cannabis oil or cannabis infused butter online.

    1. Once you’ve chosen a strain of cannabis, grind up ½-1 gram per 750 ml of water you’re going to brew into coffee (up the water to 1 L if you like a less strong cup of coffee)

  • Remember, you can increase or decrease the amount of cannabis you use, it is completely up to your personal tolerance and experience with cannabis edibles.  Make sure you know how edible cannabis affects you, and be sure you are familiar with the strain of cannabis you’re using.
  • 2. Pour 750 ml of water (or 1 L for less strong coffee) into a pot and bring to a boil

    3. When the water comes to a boil turn the heat down so it is at a rolling boil, add 30 ml of your oil of choice (2 tablespoons) to the water (up this to 3 tablespoons, 45 ml, if you’re brewing 1 L of coffee). Stir the water & oil thoroughly.

    4. Next, mix in the ground up cannabis (ensure it is ground up as finely as possible - the more finely it is ground, the better chance it will have of becoming soluble in the oil carrier). Stir the concoction thoroughly.

    5. Keep the water, oil and marijuana at a rolling boil for 30 minutes or so, stirring frequently to prevent the buds from sticking to the pot.

    *If you have your own cannabutter or you have some premade that you’ve purchased, you can skip steps 1, 3 and 4 (simply bring water to a boil and add the cannabutter or marijuana infused oil to the boiling water)*

    6. Next, remove the pot from the stove and pour the mixture through a strainer into your final container, pot or mug (make sure all of the plant material is caught by the strainer, pick out any chunks of buds from the final container with a tea-steeping spoon).

    7. Finally, use the cannabis infused water instead of regular H2O to brew your coffee.

    Some things to keep in mind:

  • If you’re using a traditional coffee maker, make sure you rinse out the water reservoir thoroughly after - the smell of marijuana will linger if you don’t, and you wouldn’t want any lingering cannabinoids to make it into the next unwitting person’s pot of coffee!
  • If you’re making coffee with keurig, tassimo or nespresso machines, you have to be extra thorough in step 6 when you’re straining - any plant material left in the mixture could potentially clog up the parts of your single-cup coffee brewer.
  • Just like many people have different cannabis needs, brew your coffee to your comfort level and taste preferences - this recipe should be used as a basic guideline, in no way is it the only measure of a good cup of mary joe.
  • HOW DOES WEED INFUSED COFFEE AFFECT YOU?

    Cannabis infused coffee is actually an edible form, and just like a pot cookie or weed brownie, it might take up to an hour or more to feel the cannabis kick in after drinking your weed latte or canna-cappuccino.  So, be careful when, where and how much weed coffee you drink, and always be cognizant of how caffeine and cannabis affect you separately before you try them together.

    You might be one of those cannabis users that supplements your health with CBD or THC tinctures, so adding a little bit of weed magic to your daily cup of coffee makes sense.  For most Canadians, cannabis is both a medicine and a feel-good part of their day - you don’t have to need marijuana for health reasons to enjoy it. In fact, the majority of Canadians report that they consume cannabis for recreational reasons first, deriving a variety of medical benefits from it as they learn more about its effects on their minds & bodies.

    Whether you’re a rec marijuana user or medically
    reliant on cannabis, weed infused coffee is a great way to benefit from the energy boosts of caffeine and cannabinoids.  Did you know that there are actually some synergistic benefits to combining caffeine and THC or CBD? First, we need to understand how caffeine and cannabinoids influence your biochemistry differently.

    Coffee, matcha, tea and other sources of caffeine are known for giving you a jolt of energy, but the chemical caffeine doesn’t actually imbue you with energy.  Caffeine is actually an inhibitor of the dopey, sleepy sedative-like neurochemical adenosine.  Adenosine occurs naturally in our bodies and is produced to cause us to seek rest and sleep.  Caffeine effectively blocks our receptors from receiving this neurochemical, therefore giving us the feeling of being awake, energized and freed from the shackles of sleepiness.

    Cannabinoids, on the other hand, interact with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is a complex nervous system and network of receptors inherent throughout our minds and bodies.  Cannabinoids bind to our ECS receptors and the resulting biochemical reactions from these interactions essentially lead to reduced pain, inflammation, nausea, anxiety and a number of other health benefits we’ve come to expect from marijuana.

    You could say that caffeine is an inhibitor, while cannabinoids like THC or CBD promote activity in certain areas of the brain and body.  So what do these very distinct compounds do to your body when you consume them together?  Many stoners love the idea of combining cannabis and coffee, but they might be afraid of the idea that coffee is an upper (wakefulness, cutting down on sluggishness), while cannabis is typically consumed as a downer (relaxing, sleep-aid, calming an overactive mind, etc).  These concerns are valid, and it is important to point out that combining any chemicals - even if they’re plant-based - needs to be carefully managed to avoid any adverse reactions.

    When it comes to how cannabis infused coffee makes you feel, it depends on the strength of the caffeine and the potency of THC, CBD or both.  Some proponents of CBD advocate for Cannabidiol infused coffee because it can help to take the edge off (less coffee jitters), or put your mind in a state of calmness that will amplify the effects of the caffeine (meaning you can consume less, for the same effect).  Alternatively, a lot of bud baristas brew coffee with THC-dominant strains to “enhance their high”.  As long as you’re a savvy stoner and you know how marijuana impacts you, combining coffee beans and cannabis can lead to a stronger high with more noticeable psychoactive effects. 

    Just like certain coffee grounds suit certain situations, you wouldn’t want to drink a medium roast coffee (high in caffeine) with a superchill, couch-locking hybrid like Northern Lights.  You can play mad scientist and mix the coffee and cannabis that you like best, but just always keep in mind that uppers and downers don’t mix well, so try not to dabble with competing kinds of java and ganja.  When you get right down to it, the combinations of marijuana infused coffee are almost endless and they will depend on the person who is sipping on it.  Your personal caffeine and cannabis tolerances might be vastly different to others, so until more research is done on the relationship between cannabis and coffee we’ll have to keep experimenting for ourselves. 

    START YOUR DAY WITH A CUP OF MARY J(OE)

    Next time you have a very important meeting at work, or if you’re looking to improve your creativity and mindfulness in the morning, try some weed infused coffee instead of just your average double-double.  Any caffeine drink can benefit from a combination of THC or CBD, especially those half-hot, one-pump, non-fat, soy milk, decaf espresso with sugar free caramel drizzle monstrosities.  Even if your morning joe sounds like an essay on modern dietary requirements, what’s one more ingredient on top? Particularly when that final ingredient could mean the difference between unlocking your coffee’s true potential?

    Cannabis coffee is a highly customizable, fun and tasty way to get your daily dose of weed and your dose of “woke”.  Whip up a foamy cannaccino or craft a creamy weed latte, the possibilities of marijuana infused coffee are endless.  Once you’ve perfected your own wake-and-bake ritual with weed coffee, check out our other blogs on finding the perfect edible for you.  Cannabis isn’t just good for mornings, but it sure makes for one heck of a start to your day.

This is no different when using cannabis to help with the treatment of fibromyalgia pain. Breaking the pain cycle is a important factor to consider when treating patients with fibromyalgia, pain can begin to creep its way into the body which then is followed by fatigue, non-restorative sleep or stiffness creating a list of worsening symptoms as body reacts to this painful disease. As one symptom worsens, another pops up and becomes just as severe, making it an all out losing battle for patients.

Having the ability to manage just one symptom can have great effects on helping bring down the severity of many of the other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Let’s dive deeper into the effective measures cannabis can have towards the treatment for fibromyalgia pain and its other ailments.

    Reduction of Pain

    Pain is often the most common ailment individuals suffer from when dealing with fibromyalgia and as we mentioned above it can bring forth a long list of other symptoms that make living with fibromyalgia a lot worse. When looking at the research there have been suggestions that those who suffer from fibromyalgia could potentially have a dysfunction to their endocannabinoid system. There has been a long history between cannabis use and endocannabinoid system and how cannabis is a great aid in boosting the endocannabinoid system when it isn’t functioning at its highest. Cannabis has been used for centuries as a pain reliever and it is no different for the treatment for fibromyalgia pain, if your looking to read more about cannabis and it's pain relieve power try our How Medical Marijuana Helps with Pain article.

    In a review conducted by Dr. Ethan B. Russo for Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research  he theorized that fibromyalgia could be related to Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency. Our endocannabinoid system is best described as the communications network that delivers messages between our brain, organs, connective tissues, glands and immune cells. Our endocannabinoid system’s main goal is homeostasis, helping the body create and maintain balanced inner workings. When the endocannabinoid system becomes abnormal or doesn’t function as it is supposed to, we begin to experience certain health issues. This can cause a variety of ailments such as sleep issues, mood imbalance, gastrointestinal health, muscle spasticity and much more. These symptoms that come with an out of whack endocannabinoid system are also similar to those symptoms experienced by individuals with fibromyalgia. In his review Dr. Russo wrote “If endocannabinoid function were decreased, it follows that a lowered pain threshold would be operative, along with derangements of digestion, mood, and sleep among the almost universal physiological systems subserved by the endocannabinoid system.” This ultimately doesn’t mean that restoring the endocannabinoid system will cure fibromyalgia but it does indicate that using cannabis to help boost the endocannabinoid system could reduce pain associated with the disease, further linking fibromyaglia and marijuana.

    Another study conducted recently in 2019 in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology was the first long term study on the use of cannabis for patients suffering from fibromyalgia. The study followed 367 patients, mostly middle aged women who consumed cannabis for 6 months. Each patient was given the option of 14 different cannabis strains, with both options of THC and CBD rich strains. The researchers conducted several questionnaires over the 6 months, along with asking patients to rate symptoms and report side effects. The results once the study was concluded proved incredibly positive:

    I think it’s fair to assume that you have a sweet tooth, why else would you be here looking to combine your favourite strain with your favourite candy. We all have our go-to candy, whether it’s fuzzy peach, coke bottles or cherry blasters, these sugary coated drops of goodness have been in your life since you were a kid. Now you are looking to take your candy eating experience to the next level. THC infused gummies are discreet, easy to consume and delicious making them one of the best way to get your daily dose of cannabis. Creating homemade cannabis edibles is a popular hobby among cannabis consumers, many enjoy baking edibles like cannabis infused birthday cake, cookies and brownies, they are easy to make and can be customized to your specific needs. Unlike cannabis baked goods though, weed gummies haven’t been around as long so their popularity and availability are only starting to meet the demands. Many who enjoy cannabis gummies sometimes find them difficult to find, or if you purchase from a licenced retailer you can only acquire THC infused gummes that have extremely low doses. So just like baked goods many are now looking to make their own cannabis gummies to save on costs and get the dosage they require. Here we’ll get into how to make cannabis gummies, how to add the proper dosage and everything else you need to know to make your favourite candy even better.

    How to make Cannabis Gummies

    Gummies Vs Baked Goods

    Gummies Vs Baked Goods

    For as long as we can remember, edibles have come in the form of baked goods. The ever famous batch of pot brownies, moms homemade cookie recipe with a psychedelic twist or that delicious birthday cake to make getting older easier. There are however disadvantages to cannabis baked goods, their potency can be misguided due to the unequal spread of cannabis and = they have a shorter shelf life because of the active natural ingredients involved. THC gummies on the other hand eliminate both those problems and add some additional bonuses. One of the main reasons people love THC gummies is the fact they taste like candy, not just any candy but all different types of candies, from Coke Bottles to Fuzzy Peaches, the options are endless when it comes to cannabis gummies. Along with the dozens and dozens of flavour options, cannabis edibles are the clear winner when it comes to storing and preserving over a long period of time. With less fresh ingredients then a baked good, weed gummies can last much longer, especially when stored in the freezer. The size of the gummies also makes it much more desirable, they are usually only a few centimetres in size allowing them to be more discreet and easily transferred around for easy dosing at any time. Gummies also provide extremely precise dosing options, each gummy can be crafted with a specific amount of cannabis to meet the appropriate needs and strength each user needs. Last but certainly not least is the fact that gummies kick is a lot quicker then other forms of edibles, this is especially true when you choose to slowly suck on the gummy which helps break it down into the bloodstream through the mucosal membranes in the mouth. The process of metabolization is skipped over allowing for the cannabinoids to take almost immediate effect.

    What You Need to Make Cannabis Gummies

    What you need to make Cannabis Gummies

    Unlike the process of crafting your cannabis to become suitable for baked cannabis goods, the process for gummies is much more complex. With baked goods it is fairly straightforward, you decarb your cannabis and then add it to a butter or oil for maximum potency. When creating cannabis gummies however the process requires extracting your cannabis into a form of concentrate, either a tincture or distillate is recommended. These require time, a specific knowledge and a required set of tools. We recommend you purchase either a CBD tincture or a CBD distillate from Haute Health, this will help speed up the process of making your own cannabis gummies and will ensure your concentrates comes from the highest quality buds in Canada. The more pure the concentrate is the better it is for your cannabis gummy recipe.

    Before you get started on how to make cannabis gummies, you need to make sure you have the right cooking utensils, here is a list of what is required before you get cooking:

    The ingredients listed can be alerted to meet your specific needs , especially if you have issues with certain dietary items. Here we’ve put a list of appropriate ingredients together to help get you started on how to make THC gummies:

    There are hundreds of ways on how to make THC gummies that have a wide variety of unique options, from degrees of potency to specific flavours, how unique you want to get with your weed gummy recipe comes down to you and your needs. The recipe we have put together is simple and easy, especially for beginners making a batch for the first time.

    The entire process should take around 45 minutes to an hour to complete your weed gummy recipe. Let use weed gummy bears as an example. Each weed gummy bear will contain around 20 mg of THC with around 50 gummy bears in total being made. If this is your first time eating edibles then we recommend dosing them to around 10 mg per gummy and if you feel you need them stronger then just eat more!

    Ingredients:

    Cooking process:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Storage

    After you've compalted your cannabis gummy recipe you’ll notice that the gummies will begin to sweat a bit, which is a normal occurrence. This will cause them to stick together, especially if you package them away straight after cooking. Allow for around 12-24 hours before adding sugar and storing in an airtight container. If you know you won’t be able to eat them all within a week or two, store them in the freezer and eat at your leisure for months on end.

    Quite possibly the oldest form of cannabis concentrate known to man the long and storied history of hash, also known as hashish, stretches back as far as the 12th century B.C in places like Nepal, India, the Middle East and parts of northern Africa. Even though many new and exciting forms of cannabis concentrates have been created and introduced to the market in recent years the popularity of hashish in its many forms and varieties still remains a celebrated option among cannabis users to this day in many parts of the world.

    How to smoke Hash

    Hash has existed for centuries in Asia and parts of Africa but with widespread recreational legalization in the western world it is becoming a more common sight in our stash boxes too. In the past the rarity of chancing upon a small block of hash to smoke forced more than a few smokers accustomed to cannabis flowers to wonder just what the heck they were supposed to do with the stuff. Over the years through persistence and experimentation people have discovered a wide range of effective methods for properly smoking hash products be they improvised or well known and tried and true.

    But what is the best way to smoke hash and how do you smoke hash in a pipe, joint or a bong?

    Home of The BC Bud

    A Dash of Hash

    Hash is created by isolating the trichomes from the cannabis flower and pressing them into a block of solid material. Because the resulting material contains only the portion of the cannabis flower which contains the cannabinoids and cannabis terpenes that provide the beneficial and psychoactive effects of the plant the resulting product is an extremely potent and powerful smoke intended for use in small amounts. Because of the wide variety of cannabis strains available and the different methods that can be utilized to produce hashish the material can range in appearance from a solid chalky substance to something more akin to a thick and gooey sludge.

    There are a vast number of varieties of hash available out there and each will have its own consistency, colour and best suited smoking method. Wondering how to smoke bubble hash? The same principle applies as with any other type of hashish. The consistency of the material will help you to determine the best method of how to smoke hashish you may happen to have on hand, regardless of its type or origin.

    When it comes to learning how to smoke hash a little goes a long way so be sure you are well aware of your tolerance limits and don’t dive in headfirst! One of the most popular methods for smoking hash is to simply add a little sprinkle of the material into a joint or blunt as you are rolling it. Be sure to spread the hash evenly throughout the roll to ensure that smoking it won’t produce too much resin and the cherry won’t hit a blockage or a big chunk and cause the joint or blunt to go out in the midst of your smoke session.

    A Dash of Hash

    Pick Your Favourite

    Wondering about how to smoke hash in a pipe or a bong? The principle is essentially the very same as when you are rolling it into a joint with ground up cannabis flowers. Simply pack yourself a small bowl - you don’t need to use much cannabis as you only really need it to provide a base upon which the hashish will burn. Packing too big of a bowl or adding in too much hashish will likely find you locked to the couch at best or greening out and feeling upset at worst.

    But what is the best way to smoke hash? When learning how to use hash properly it is always best to err on the side of caution and use only a little bit of it at a time. You can always pack a second bowl or roll another joint if you find the effects unsatisfactory but going beyond your tolerance and getting too high will only subside with time and could provide you with an uncomfortable enough experience to turn you off of using hashish or any other cannabis products at all in the future! The best way to manage this is by using a bowl like a pipe or bong to smoke your hash with just a little bit of cannabis flower as a base.

    Another passable method for consuming hash is to vape it. Using a cannabis vape with a small amount of ground cannabis flowers packed inside as a base you can sprinkle a bit of hash into the chamber for an extra kick or you could simply load your vape with finely broken up hash in a small amount and vape it directly. It is also possible to dab with hash, especially the thick and gooey kind. If you have one available to you, using a dab rig is also one of the best methods available for how to smoke hash oil products. If you don’t have access to a dab rig and wish to smoke hash oil you might want to add it to a bowl of ground flowers in a pipe or bong just as you would with solid hash material. Smoking hash oil in this way is probably one of the least effective and efficient methods but it will get the job done in a pinch!

    The Old Fashioned Way

    But what about if you don’t have any cannabis flowers available to you? Well if you find yourself in this circumstance you can always hop over to our online shop to pick some up! But while you are waiting for the mail or if you are unable to do so and only have hashish on hand you will still need a simple method to smoke it. You could pack a little into a pipe with a screen or into the bowl of your bong but unless you want to smoke a large quantity at once you may be better served with another method. Before the invention of specialized dab rigs for smoking cannabis concentrates in small amounts many people in kitchens around the world found a surefire improvisational method that still works great!

    Fair warning this method will require the use of a pair of silverware knives which everybody should have available to them at home however using them in this way destroys the knife for any other type of use. We advise you don’t go using your partner or relative’s favourite set of fancy knives! If you need to you can always pick up some cheap ones at your nearest home and kitchen supplies store.

    This method is called “hot-knifing” and is relatively easy to do. Apart from two clean table knives you will likely need at least one oven mitt to handle the knives after they have been heated up. First gather your materials and your hashish and break yourself off a tiny piece or sprinkle of the material. Depending on the style of your stovetop you will need to either thread the blade end of the knife into the heating element of the stovetop or simply place the tip over the open flame of your gas range. Unfortunately this method is not compatible with a glass surfaced electric stovetop so if yours is a little too nice and modern you may want to just invest in a dab rig.

    For the rest of us with old fashioned gas or electric stovetops the blade of the first knife should start to turn bright red at the tip after a short while indicating that it is hot enough. Be careful not to burn yourself when handling the hot knife - use an oven mitt! Take the hashish material you broke off for use and place it on the tip of the unheated cold knife. Press the red hot tip of the hot knife against the hashish on the cold knife and inhale the resulting smoke. You may wish to use a straw or a funnel (the top of a plastic soda bottle works well) to better draw in the smoke before it escapes and dissipates but whatever you do be careful not to melt the plastic or burn yourself in any way. It should also be noted that depending on the consistency of the material you use there may be a minor risk of bubbling which could cause an unexpected burn. Safety glasses aren’t a terrible idea if you have them.

    This is really only the last resort option of a desperate smoker with no other options on hand. If you are considering using the hot knife method but have access to pipes, bongs, vapes, or can roll a half decent joint and have cannabis flowers on hand your only real reason to do so would be for the experience and perhaps the nostalgia if you were ever a teenager who pilfered from the family silverware drawer!

    If you’re looking to buy hash online there is no better place to turn than your number one online dispensary Canada: Haute Health! Choose from our growing selection of cannabis concentrates, edibles and flower products including some great varieties of hashish! Happy smoking.

    For many people in Canada and across the world living with pain and health issues is a major part of their daily struggle. When these health issues are caused by an autoimmune disorder such as lupus, multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis relief from pain and discomfort can unfortunately become a focal point of a person's lifestyle. Thankfully with the legalization of cannabis in Canada relief is often more readily available to people than it ever has been before and it can be accessed without any need for consultation with a physician or first obtaining a prescription!

    Cannabis for Autoimmune Disorder

    That said if you yourself are suffering or suspect you may be suffering from a chronic autoimmune disorder you should always consult with your family doctor or physician before diagnosing and attempting to treat yourself. Cannabis has a long and proven track record helping people who are struggling with the pain and discomfort of an autoimmune disorder regain control over their lives and wellbeing but should only be used in this manner under the guidance of a trained medical professional.

    What Are Autoimmune Disorders?

    What Are Autoimmune Disorders?

    Autoimmune disorders are any type of body disorder that can cause irregular over or under activation of the body's natural immune defense system. In the case of over activation the immune system responds to a triggering stimuli which causes it to overproduce antibodies which, finding no threat to deal with, end up attacking the healthy tissues and organs of the host body instead. Healthy organs like the heart, brain, skin, eyes, digestive tract, nerves, lungs and joints are all susceptible to be affected by this issue. Where under activation is the concern the body struggles and fails to produce the necessary antibodies to battle with infections that actually are present in the body making the patient far more likely to suffer from illness and disease of other kinds.

    Put simply autoimmune disorders are a class of diseases which cause the human body to attack and cause harm to itself through either inaction or an overwhelming amount of unnecessary and harmful actions intended to protect the body from harm. The human immune system has been developed by evolutionary processes over many thousands of years to target viruses and other pathogens than humans are frequently exposed to. Typically these systems are equipped to tell the difference between an interloping invading bacteria or viral infection and your own healthy cells, however many people across the world suffer from conditions which make this process extremely difficult or sometimes even impossible.

    When this happens your immune system wages all out war against your own body and the effects can be absolutely devastating and often completely debilitating. As antibodies are sent out to attack healthy tissue, organs or skin the results often come hand in hand with extreme discomfort and pain.

    Some of the most common autoimmune disorders known to modern science include conditions like multiple sclerosis which attacks the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves and Crohn's disease which can wreak havoc on the human digestive system.

    Treatment for Autoimmune Disorders

    Modern science still doesn’t completely understand exactly why the human body suffers from the attacks of its own immune system under these conditions but a constant symptom of many of these debilitating disorders is inflammation. No matter the true cause of the disorder inflamed swollen redness, heat, discomfort and debilitating dysfunction can all be par for the course when you are struggling with an autoimmune disorder. Tragically there is no cure for any of these conditions known to modern medical science and treatment options are few and far between for most patients.

    Medicines typically prescribed to sufferers of autoimmune disorders typically work to reduce inflammation and also reduce the production of antibodies or suppress the immune system. Some extreme treatments referred to as immunosuppressant medicines can actually go so far as to stifle the entire function of the immune system allowing for the patient to experience a reprieve from the constant harm being inflicted upon them by their own body.

    Unfortunately the vast majority of these traditional medical treatments come with a wide range of their own unpleasant side effects which can range from mildly unpleasant to extremely dangerous. Disabling the entire immune system to prevent the body from attacking itself for instance comes with the extreme risk of exposing the patient to other forms of illness that they will be completely unable to defend against without any natural systems at the ready to dispose of it.

    Treatment for Autoimmune Disorders

    Marijuana and Autoimmune Disease

    For many years before legalization of cannabis in Canada and now especially since its use has become more socially acceptable and commonplace more and more people are choosing to experiment with seeking relief with cannabis for inflammation, aches and pains, nausea, discomfort, stress and anxieties among many other things. Many surveys have been conducted polling patients with disorders like fibromyalgia and psoriasis among others and the results often reflect a major reduction in symptoms such as inflammation, pain and discomfort coupled with a greater ability to fall asleep and properly rest throughout the night. This seems to suggest that thc and immune system disorders are a perfect match.

    The list of glowing testimonials from users all over the world who use cannabis for inflammation or other symptoms is certainly a strong indicator that marijuana and autoimmune disease sufferers could be an important pairing in the field of medical science. However a large amount of controlled scientific study still needs to be performed for the connection between marijuana and autoimmune disease symptoms to be totally understood.

    Some recent research seems to suggest that cannabis and the immune system interact with one another via the endocannabinoid system which plays an important role in the human body regulating immune system functions. Immune cells are known to have the appropriate receptors - CB1 and CB2 receptors - which the cannabinoids in cannabis naturally bond to and interact with. Creating a communicative connection between thc and the immune system the body allows cannabinoids to coax it from operating in overdrive and eases down operations to slow its aggressive attack on otherwise healthy cells and tissue.

    It’s an exciting time for cannabis science and much more study is being done every day in regards to cannabis and the immune system. As more and more research is done and more is understood about this fascinating interaction between cannabis and the immune system many thousands of people who struggle daily with inflammation, sore joints, unruly digestive systems and a whole host of other immune system related symptoms have already turned to cannabis to treat their conditions. A great many have also begun to spread the word far and wide that this miraculous plant has worked wonders in helping them reclaim their health and allowing them to regain a little control over their lives.

    As an alternative to immunosuppressive medications research on thc and immune system disorders provides a promising option for many people struggling with one or more of these debilitating conditions without requiring the repression or complete cessation of the body’s natural immune system functions. This allows the patient to regain a sense of lost security functioning out in the world as they are not forced to be at constant risk of catching other illnesses on top of the already overwhelming struggle they are dealing with.

    Marijuana and Autoimmune Disease

    What About Tolerance?

    It is natural for frequent users of cannabis to slowly build a tolerance to the drug and therefore over time the required dosage required to activate the natural anti-inflammatory and immune system regulatory effects of THC and CBD will necessarily need to be increased. It is possible that over time the psychedelic potency of the cannabis will subside slightly and you will find that it doesn’t hit you quite as profoundly as before however the medicinal ingredients of the cannabis plant will still take effect. It is not possible to become completely immune to marijuana however if your personal mileage and results using marijauna to treat an autoimmune disorder are noticeably reduced it is possible to remedy the situation by taking a short tolerance break or “T Break”.

    Tolerance breaks or “T Breaks” have been employed by recreational smokers and medicinal cannabis users for many years to reamplify the effects of the substance for themselves and thankfully due to the nature of the cannabis plant and the effects of THC on the human body most breaks are very short - sometimes a single weekend or a five day workweek can be more than enough to reset your system and have you basking in the glow of potent medicinal and psychoactive effects again in no time.

    If you take marijuana medically and are unable to take a break for any reason there are alternative methods available to you as well. Although you can’t become completely immune to marijuana the frustration of having your medicine slowly lose its effectiveness over time can be a struggle and a blow to an already compromised immune system. If you find yourself in this circumstance try switching to a product with a higher CBD to THC ratio. You may also wish to stock up on multiple strains and varieties of cannabis - perhaps a CBD heavy strain to use for medicinal purposes and a THC heavy strain for recreation and relaxation. By using only small amounts of the CBD heavy cannabis strain as part of your treatment routine you can save the pleasant and comforting psychoactive effects of your THC heavy strain for when it is time to unwind.

    By maintaining a tighter control over your doses or simply using cannabis less often - for instance cutting back on recreational use in favour of only using it in a medicinal capacity - you can also gain a strong foothold over your tolerance level, keeping it in check and making certain that your medication always maintains a potent level of effectiveness.

    You probably already know what a terpene is, not buy looks though, but my scent. Terpenes are an organic compound found in a number of different plants and is the key component which gives cannabis its trademark scent and flavors. On average a cannabis plants produce over 100 different terpenes, these terpenes are the organic hydrocarbons located in the essential oils of the cannabis plant. Terpenes can be broken down into 4 categories, sweet, sour, spicy and bitter with each category breaking down further when it comes to smells. So when you get that pungent bag of sour diesel or taste the spicy earthy flavor of pineapple express, it’s the terpenes that provide those heavenly smells and flavors. Here we’ll dive into the interesting world of cannabis terpenes and how they can influence your favourite cannabis strain in more ways then one.

    What are Cannabis Terpenes

    Terpenes and Where They Come From

    Terpenes and Where they Come From

    So, what is a terpene? You already know what a terpene is, you just don’t know that it’s a terpene. A terpene is what gives an orange its citrusy smell, a pine tree its pine scent and lavender its relaxing aroma. Terpenes are what give so many different plants their smells.

    Terpenes can be found in various plants such as cannabis plants, herbs and fungi. Cannabis terpenes are made within the trichomes of the plant, a trichome is a crystal that is a shiny, sticky mushroom shaped crystal found on the leaves and buds of a cannabis plant. Terpenes likely evolved millions of years ago acting as both a natural defense for plants and an enhancement for them to reproduce. Terpenes provides various smells and some of those smells are known to keep away potentially harmful pests from invading the plants and being destroyed. Other terpenes have the opposite effect but for the greater good, various terpenes have been known to attract things such as bees who can differentiate between plants due to terpenes. It is believed that as cannabis plants evolved they began to produce terpenes that would entice certain species and repel others, ensuring survival and the ability to thrive.

    Entourage Effect

    Entourage Effect

    Cannabis terpenes are well known for their flavor and scent qualities but research shows that cannabis terpenes also effect the particular high one can get off of certain cannabis strain. This is known as the entourage effect which correlates directly to the qualities of the cannabis plant. Cannabis terpenes support a variety of other molecules within the cannabis plant, this effects both the physiological and cerebral effect. The entourage effect comes from a synergy between cannabinoids and terpenes creating a unique effect, each strain of cannabis has a certain amount of terpenes, explaining why different strains produce different effects. Outside of THC and CBD, cannabis terpenes are the next factor when it comes to the entourage effect, though studies are limited certain terpenes have shown they can provide their own effect when it comes to consuming cannabis. For example the terpene Linalool which is a terpene that produces both a lavender and citrus scent is thought to have a sedating effect and can potentially help increase the relaxing effect of CBD. Or the terpene  β-pinene which is the terpene that provides a pine like scent is also believed to contain therapeutic properties. One particular terpene has shown the most promising effects when it comes to the entourage effect. Limonene is a terpene that is often associated with a citrusy aroma, it has been studied that when consuming limonene humans can have a lower heart rate. When limonene interacts with the brain it interacts with several neurotransmitter systems such as the adenosine system, GABA system and serotonin system, these systems in the brain control things like alertness, mood and thinking. A large scale study is currently underway so stay turned for further results on the power of limonene and other cannabis terpenes! Terpenes are a strong part of the entourage effect and how certain strains with certain terpenes can provide vast differences in the experience.

    Growing Cannabis and Terpenes

    Growing Cannabis and Terpenes

    With marijuana terpenes becoming more popular and further sought after by consumers who are looking to find the perfect strain for their ailments, the process of growing, harvesting and curing cannabis plants can influence how marijuana terpenes turn out. For the growers out there here are a few tidbits to remember to increase your weed terpene quality.

    When growing cannabis indoors there is more control over the factors of how the cannabis plant turns out, but it doesn’t necessarily mean growing indoors can influence the weed terpene quality. It comes down to growing in traditional soil that makes it more effective to generate a prominent weed terpene profile, growers also want to make sure they harvest at the right time, harvesting too early or too late can affect the terpenes. If you harvest too early there is a risk of the trichomes can become cut off from the production of cannabinoid and terpene products, if you harvest too late the trichomes may decrease in chemical potency. Other important measures to consider are things like temperature, you want to make sure you plant is around 25 degrees Celsius du Save & Exit ring the day and around 15 degrees at night.

    CBD and Terpenes

    CBD and Terpenes

    For a CBD to be classified as full-specturm CBD it needs the terpenes and cannabinoids to remain intact during processing, which helps influence how the body consumes CBD. When looking to buy CBD you may see CBD isolate as an option, but this means that the likes of terpenes are in fact not included as isolate CBD is strictly CBD. As we’ve spoken about before, the entourage effect is key to getting the best out of your cannabinoids, this is no different with CBD. When the terpenes are included in the full-spectrum process it means the health benefits are enhanced, this allows the cannabinoids and the terpenes to work together and produce the best possible effects that CBD terpenes can provide.

    Common Cannabis Terpenes and Their Effects

    Common Cannabis Terpenes and their Effect

    There are over a hundred terpenes found in the cannabis plant with some being more commonly found then others. Each terpenes has its own unique flavor and medically beneficial attribute. According to the terpenes cannabinoids chart here are a few that are the strongest and most commonly found in the cannabis plant.

    Myrcene

    This is the most common terpene found in the cannabis plant and makes up most of the aromatic oils in a variety of cannabis strains, it is also commonly found in hops, mangoes, thyme, lemongrass and basil. Mycrene has shown to have effects such an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial. sedative and pain fighting properties.  Mycrene has also shown signs of sedation, calming and a relaxing effect, it also has the ability to possibly increase the longevity of the euphoric feeling you get when you consume THC, allowing for THC and cannabinoids to connect with the blood brain barrier.

    Limonene

    This is the second most common terpene found in marijuana, Limonene gives off a citrus scent and is known for its strong anti bacterial and fungal properties. When limonene is consumed it enters the blood-brain barrier with ease, this leads to it effecting things like mental focus and a general sedation. Many other products on the market use limonene to help with ailments such as depression, stress and anxiety, it is also used as a natural insect repellent which is why some terpenes exist in the first place.

    Linalool

    Cooking With Cannabis

    Cannabutter

    Cannabutter

    When cooking with marijuana, cannabis infused butter is one of the most common ways to create cannabis infused food and you don’t need to have a PHD in cannabis cooking to do it. It’s important to know that when cooking cannabis flower it has to be heated at a very specific temperature to ensure the psychoactive compounds make its way out of the plant and into the food. Butter is commonly used in almost every recipe and is a great carrier for THC, the same can be said for other great carriers such as coconut oil, olive oil and any other fatty oils. But before we get to infusing the butter with the cannabis and how to cook with weed there is an all important step that needs to happen before going any further.

    Decarboxylate (Decarb)

    Decarboxylating weed before making edibles is arguably the most important step in the entire process of cooking with weed. Decarboxylate is the process of heating raw marijuana to turn THC-A into THC, this is the same process that cannabis goes though when we smoke or vaporize it, heat converts THC-a into THC to provide the psychoactive effects.

    When decarbing your cannabis you’ll want to follow these important steps:

    Cannabis Measurements

    Cannabis Measurements

    The last thing you want is to create a batch of edibles to find out they are either too weak or way too strong. When cooking with marijuana, one of the biggest obstacles cannabis chefs face is accurately measuring how much cannabis to include in your recipe.  Rule of thumb is generally 1 teaspoon of cannabis butter or cannabis coconut oil usually contains around 10 mg of cannabis. For those who have never had cannabis infused food it’s best to maybe start with half a teaspoon. As you cook more with cannabis you will have a better understanding of what your tolerance is and how much is the right amount. Always start off slow and gradually move your way up once you get more comfortable. Here are some tips on how to roughly calculate how potent your edibles will be.

    1. A gram of cannabis is roughly at least 100 mg of THC
    2. Take the amount of cannabis you used in your butter or oil, convert into milligrams then divide it by the recipe yield
    3. This should give you a per serving dose of THC

    An example would be if you use three grams of cannabis, that would equal 300 mg of THC. You then divide 300 mg of THC by let's say how many cookies you are baking, we'll say 60. This would mean that each cookie would roughly come out to 5 mg per cookie. This of course is all rough figures as some cookies may contain more THC then others. It's always important to start low and go slow when cooking and eating edibles. Make a trial batch with low amounts of cannabis and try them out. This way you will understand how effective they are how much more cannabis you need to add it to reach the perfect amount.

     

    Common Cannabis Cooking Mistakes

    Common Cannabis Cooking Mistakes

    For many cooking with cannabis will be a first time experience, and like anything you will make a mistake or two along the way. If you make too many mistakes however it could run the entire process. Here are a few of the most common mistakes made when cooking with weed and how to avoid them.

    Don’t over-grind your weed!

    When making your cannabutter or cannabis oil the finer your weed is ground up the more you’re going to lose when you pour it through the cheesecloth. Many recommend using things like a blender or a coffee grinder to break down your cannabis, this is not a good idea. When cooking cannabis you are trying to extract the plant’s trichomes which are on the plant and not in the plant. When you siphon the cannabis you don’t want the cannabis getting into your oil or butter, this will leave an unwanted flavor. Stick to using your classic handheld grinder or using the old scissors technique.

    Add water during the infusing process

    When cooking your cannabis with butter or oil there is always a chance it will burn, whether it’s on the stove-top or in a slow cooker. Adding water helps things infuse when the temperature is lower and helps avoid any burning. Adding water can also help remove some of that strong herbal cannabis flavor. The rule of thumb is to add as much water as there is butter or oil.

    Keep the temperature low

    When THC is cooked higher then 390 Fahrenheit it becomes completely useless and usually starts to degrade way before hitting 390 Fahrenheit . You always want to keep your temperature  just below the boiling point which is 212 Fahrenheit, this way you avoid any chance of losing THC potency. Also it’s important to note that when you do create cannabis butter or oil you should not fry or sauté it directly onto a pan, always make sure the butter or oil is inside the food.

    Don’t skip the Decarboxylate process

    The Decarboxylate stage is the most important stage of the cannabis cooking process, raw cannabis doesn’t have active THC. Raw cannabis contains THC-A (THC-acid). Cannabis needs heat for the THC to become active. It is heat that creates a chemical reaction that converts the THC-A into THC. Always make sure to Decarboxylate or your edibles will be virtually useless.

    Cannabis for Skin Care

    What is CBD Oil

    What is CBD Oil

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound extracted from the marijuana hemp plant, specifically the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. It contains low levels of THC that produces zero psychoactive effects and are often so low it cannot be detected if tested. Not to be confused with another great skin care product, CBD and hemp seed oil are not the same. Hemp seed oil comes directly from hemp seeds being cold pressed, whereas CBD comes from the hemp plant after it has grown from the hemp seed. CBD oil is rich in concentrated cannabidiol while hemp seed oil contains almost no cannabidiol. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body which sets off a series of reactions in the brain dealing with things like stress, anxiety, inflammation, pain relief and so much more. Here we’ll look at what cannabis sativa oil can do for different skin conditions and how it can help relieve or even cure various skin issues with cannabis sativa seed oil. Check out all the great CBD products Haute has to offer, with various products designed specifically for skin care.

    What is Cannabis Sativa Oil

    Skin requires specific nutrients to remain healthy and vibrant, many skin products contain two important ingredients essential fatty acids and vitamin E. Cannabis sativa oil is a key oil that produces both these ingredients in abundance.

Due to its high levels of omega-6 fattay acids cannabis sativa oil also helps with skin irritation and rashes.

    Both cannabis sativa oil and CBD are great sources for skin care, but CBD has become the more popular choice and have become widely available to the masses. Here we'll look at the skin conditions that CBD can not only provide relief for but also help eliminate all together.

     

    What Skin Conditions Can CBD Help With?

    What Skin Conditions Can CBD Help With?

    CBD and Skin Irritation

    One of CBD’s biggest benefits is that it targets the brains pain receptors while also reducing swelling and inflammation, this has lead many to use CBD against things like big bites, scratches, dry skin and other skin irritants. CBD acts as a relaxant and a soothing mechanism helping target skin irritants like rashes, and other more serious skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, also known as the most common type of eczema. Cannabis sativa seed oil also contains a high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids which is known to help with both itching and inflammation a direct issue for those suffering from eczema. The National Eczema Centre claims that “In a human trial for patients with AD, an endocannabinoid cream improved severity of itch and loss of sleep by an average of 60 percent among subjects. Twenty percent of subjects were able to stop their topical immunomodulators, 38 percent ceased using their oral antihistamines, and 33.6 percent no longer felt the need to maintain their topical steroid regimen by the end of the study”

    CBD and Acne

    Keeping skin lubricated comes down to an oily substance known as sebum, which comes from the sebaceous glands found underneath the skin. This oily substance comes through the hair follicles and comes through the skin via our pores, hair follicles shed dead skin which sebum helps get rid of. When the skin cells build up and too much sebum is released the pores become clogged, resulting in a build up of bacteria which in turn causes inflammation and spots. Cannabis sativa oil is packed with essential fatty acids which is known to provide skin with more hydration, a lacking factor in those who suffer from acne. Cannabis sativa oil also has major antibacterial properties which also helps those with acne which is common factor in contributing to acne. Cannabis sativa oil are also non-comedogenic which means they wont clog pores, contain anti inflammation properties and have an abundance of antioxidants. CBD oil has shown in multiple studies to regulate what is known as lipid production, this helps with dealing with overly oily skin, reducing pore build up and increased amounts of sebum. CBD also helps reduce the appearance of acne on the skin, with its natural anti-inflammatories CBD reduces the swelling and inflammation on the skin, helping ease the redness of the acne spots.

    CBD for Psoriasis

    Psoriasis is a both a skin disease and a sign of chronic autoimmune disease. Scientists believe that the cause of psoriasis is a disorder in the immune system which accidentally activates the reaction in the skin cells, in turn accelerates the cycle of the skin cells growth. Psoriasis is usually hereditary and passed on from parents to children. Psoriasis produces a dandruff like dry skin feature, commonly found on places like the elbows, knees and edge of the scalp. The anti-inflammatory action found in CBD and its ability to boost the immune system show promising signs of helping relieve psoriasis symptoms. Studies have shown CBD has the ability to inhibit the buildup of dead skin cells which is a rooted cause in psoriasis. Those studies are in the primitive stage, CBD is showing positive signs to helping with psoriasis.

    CBD for Protection

    Skin has a natural barrier and when you take CBD it naturally helps contribute both vitamin A and D, when this happens it stimulates the skins natural barrier functions cell regeneration results in more healthier and wholesome skin. When skin gets those added boosts of vitamins it helps strengthen the skin and results in protection form harmful things such as the sun, smoke and even air pollution. CBD also contributes to increasing fatty acids which helps add to the protective layer and strength of the skin, increasing both skin health and the radiance of the skin.

    CBD and Fighting Skin Infections

    Multiple studies have shown that CBD contains what is known as antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which are known to help fight infections. Infections such as cellulitis, boils, impetigo and folliculitis can be helped by the properties that CBD contains. Within some skin diseases there is a bacterium that makes infections difficult to treat known as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MSRA), CBD has shown signs that it can specifically fight this bacterium, whereas most antibiotics cannot. As science evolves so does bacteria, they begin to learn how to fight and become resistant to various antibiotics. CBD is a natural compound that can fight the extra proteins created by an infection like MRSA, when infections create more protein they become stronger and more resistant to man made antibiotics.

    CBD and Aging Skin

    Both vitamin C and E are known to be packed with antioxidants, but did you know both CBD and cannabis sativa seed oil are more potent then both of them? This is has lead researchers to believe that CBD is a powerful agent against wrinkles and fine line in the face with its high amount of natural antioxidants. It is also known protect both collagen and elastin in the skin by neutralizing free radicals which are known to cause damage to the skin and make it loose and older looking.
