CBD: Past, Present, and Future

CBD: Past, Present and Future As CBD rises in popularity, we figured we would explore its rich history and how it has gotten to this point today.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant has two subsets, hemp, and marijuana. Hemp is defined as any plant that contains less than 0.3% THC (the most famous cannabinoid, known for its psychoactive effects), and marijuana contains over 0.3% THC, as defined through an article published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health. This distinction is important. Because these cannabinoids are both found within the same plant, they were, therefore, criminalized simultaneously, disallowing the research of either cannabinoid nor allowing them into the general public. The amount of CBD found within each plant is dependant on how its mother plants are bred.

According to an article published in the British Journal of Pharmacology titled, “Cannabinoid Pharmacology: The First 66 Years”, cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes dating back 5000 years. Through the 1900s, cannabis medications were prescribed by medical professionals for a variety of ailments.

Back then, cannabinoids were an unknown concept. After much interest taken by the scientific and medical community, the plant started being truly studied, and the cannabinoid system within the plant was discovered. However, CBD was not elucidated until 1963. Unfortunately, the act of cultivating hemp products became criminalized shortly after, in 1969. This is when President Nixon enacted the “War on Drugs”, and placed hemp products in schedule one- claiming it had no medicinal uses and is highly addictive. This also specifically included any facet of the plant, so the cannabinoid system in its entirety was off-limits and deemed dangerous. It remained in this category for years to come, according to the article Legal and Regulatory Issues Governing Cannabis and Cannabis-Derived Products in the United States.

Another interesting facet of the illegal status of cannabis relates to how widespread the usage of the actual hemp plant. The lumber industry was an advocate for placing cannabis products into schedule one illegal status, because of the potential disruption hemp was to their potential market. Hemp products can be utilized in place of any lumber product. Therefore, this previously established industry had a vested interest in keeping the revenue towards lumber, and away from hemp.

As the years continued, this compound became a fierce topic of division between people. The War on Drugs was still in full swing, but there was a massive part of the population that started using cannabis products, despite their illegal status. The rhetoric amongst this mass of people was consistently stating how these products alleviated many of their daily pains, including physical and mental. As the popularity of cannabis continued to rise through the 1960s and 1970s, this plant could no longer be ignored on a grand scale.

With California legalizing medical marijuana in 1996, and Oregon and Washington following shortly after, perspectives began to change throughout the United States. The more states that medically legalized marijuana, the more stories that surfaced claiming this to be a life-altering plant with countless benefits. Because people understood CBD to be different than THC, but many had no desire to experience a psychoactive effect and wished to simply alleviate pain, CBD companies began popping up in legal states.

The Farm Bill was passed in 2018, removing hemp from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act, according to the FDA webpage explaining its role in CBD. This was highly beneficial because it made this plant more viable to be studied for its medicinal benefits and hopefully helped it break away from the negative stigma it has through its association with marijuana.

This time period also marked a huge win for CBD, as the first plant-derived cannabis drug, called Epidiolex, was regulated by the FDA starting in June of 2018, according to an article published through the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health. This drug is intended for people who struggle with rare forms of epilepsy that does not respond to traditional medicines.

Today, it is entirely legal to purchase any CBD product, typically having no age limit associated. Technically under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is legally allowed to be transported across state lines. Although, this can be tricky, as some states decide to continue to follow their state’s legalities, where cannabis might not be legal in any form. Nonetheless, CBD is becoming a widespread health phenomenon for individuals across the United States, and its trajectory appears to continue to be on the rise.

CBD For Seniors

CBD For Seniors

Why The Senior Community is Opting Towards CBD

CBD, or cannabidiol, has quickly taken the pain-management market by storm. From products ranging from capsules to salves, this cannabinoid found within the hemp plant has been celebrated for its pain-relieving qualities. From children through the elderly community, CBD has found its home in numerous settings.

As more people search for natural, organic products across the board, CBD has found its rising popularity. According to an article published on Forbes titled “​Survey: Nearly Half Of People Who Use Cannabidiol Products Stop Taking Traditional Medicines”, people are starting to ditch pharmaceuticals like Advil or Vicodin and replacing them with cannabis-based products. This can be especially attractive to the elderly population, as pillboxes grow larger and larger to curb health problems that accompany aging. Even one less pill per day is entirely exciting to those who are prescribed numerous daily doses.

CBD does not produce the euphoric effects that its sister cannabinoid THC​ (Tetrahydrocannabinol) produces. CBD has been shown to be anti-inflammatory, analgesic,​ antineoplastic, anxiolytic and even chemopreventive, according to an article published through the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Each of these qualities seems highly appealing to the elderly community, as aging is synonymous with issues such as diabetes, joint pain, and cancer. And with the technology now available, these citizens are not left with only smokeable options- those with joint pain can enjoy a salve applied topically. There are now also encapsulated CBD products in which one can simply add to their pill regiment, while potentially eliminating one or more.

As more and more seniors are bombarded with a pill regiment that involves a pill for each problem their aging is facing, CBD can be an incredibly attractive option, because of its multi-faceted quality. CBD wears many hats. It can help facilitate someone with hip pain be able to maneuver around easier. It can also decrease stress accompanied by end of life anxieties. As cancer grows more common the older we get due to damaged or weakening cells, CBD has the potential to fight this occurrence.

Something to always be wary of when considering this option is the sourcing of said CBD product and proper dosage. If you are looking to start your CBD journey, it is more than likely coming from a place for the search for wholesome methods of healing. Therefore, ensuring a company’s transparency by acknowledging their sourcing their CBD through organic, non-harmful extraction methods is key. The more information a company is willing to share with the public, the less likely they have anything to hide.

Similarly, proper dosages are crucial. While there has never been a reported CBD overdose, there are monetary and body effects that overconsumption can cause. This cannabinoid can be used for a variety of reasons, such as sleeping, and if the CBD dosage is too high, one might end up staying asleep longer than originally intended. It is always recommended to start slow and work up to find what best works for your specific endocannabinoid system.

On a personal account, I recommended a CBD based salve for my grandmother years ago, who has arthritis issues, specifically in her hands. Dexterity proved harder and harder as she aged, which was difficult to watch. After much research, I found a product that I believed would help her with her day-to-day activities. Now after almost three years of a consistent CBD regimen, my grandmother is back to hand-writing thank you cards and finds playing Solitaire on her computer much easier.

As the perception of this cannabinoid is changing, more and more stories are coming to light about how this improved daily life for a wide variety of individuals. Here at Revexia, we are proud to offer organic, third-party tested CBD options in numerous administration options. We offer a CBD tincture, which is administered through a dropper under the tongue, allowing for quick delivery of relief. We also have encapsulated CBD, which is simply swallowed. We are​     also proud to offer topicals to target any joint or muscle pain. Check out our other products at our webpage https://revexia.life/shop​ to see what else we have that would fit into your CBD journey. And as always, feel free to give us a call at 833.223.9244 with any questions or inquiries.

CBD Benefits For Pets

CBD Benefits For Pets

“Continuing with this trend, more and more pet owners are exploring the
world of CBD, a plant-based relief for their pets.”

How Can CBD Benefit Your Pet?

It is difficult to watch your pet go through any sort of pain, especially because communication
between pet and owner is typically conveyed through belly rubs and bedtime snuggles. Knowing
exactly what to give your pet so they lead their healthiest, happiest life is really up to the owner
to know their pet’s behaviors and interpret what they mean. As more pet parents have gone
through traditional medicines and found little to worsening results, there has been a growing
demand in the CBD industry to have a product tailored to our four-legged loved ones.

Is CBD Right for My Pet?

Always wanting the best for our furry children, there has been a growing demand for organic,
pesticide-free products. Continuing with this trend, more and more pet owners are exploring the
world of CBD, a plant-based relief for their pets. A study completed by Frontiers in Veterinary
Science has shown that CBD is anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, anti-hyperalgesia and
antinociceptive, leading smoothly to aches and pains of aging animals.

With so many CBD companies, how do I choose?

Something important for consumers to focus on throughout their CBD search is sourcing. Cutting corners is common in any business, and the CBD world has not escaped this issue. Sourcing organic and pesticide-free product can be daunting, but highly beneficial to the health of your pet. Third-party tests are a smart thing to look for, as well as proper dosages based on the animal’s specific weight. These are key points that prove the company takes its product’s quality seriously, and therefore support an added trusting element.

Similarly, THC (the most common psychoactive cannabinoid) is a controversial cannabinoid found within CBD pet products, as it is highly regulated and still federally illegal. At this time in history, there is simply not enough information to determine how THC will affect pets, and in fact, is highly frowned upon by the veterinarian community due to its unknown nature. Therefore, THC-free is also something to look for as a pet owner. CBD, on the other hand, has no associated risk of overdose nor negative side effects and is much more welcomed within the veterinary community.
