Cannabinoids For Neuropathy

CBD, Cannabidiol, CBD for neuropathy, peripheral neuropathic pain, PNP, cannabinoids, terpenes, entourage effect, legal in all 50 states, That's Natural, Thats Natural, nerve protection - Full Spectrum CBD-Rich hemp oil from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life, cbdoil.life, thatsnatural.info, www.thatsnatural.info

Over 16 million people in America suffer from neuropathic pain. This pain stems from either nerve injury, disease states, or toxic insults. A study from the National Institutes of Health researched whether cannabinoids, like CBD, could be used to address this unmet need. The results are pretty remarkable.

In this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group study, it was analyzed whether cannabinoids could help peripheral neuropathic pain (PNP) treatment.  For 15 weeks, the group study was analyzed and investigated. Over 300 people with peripheral neuropathic pain. This pain was associated with allodynia because it poses a significant clinical challenge.

Of these 303 people, 128 were randomized to cannabinoids, and 118 to placebo, in addition to their current analgesic therapy. Not only was there a statistically significant treatment difference favoring cannabinoids, but there was also a reduction in mean PNP scores in both treatment groups. However, the reduction was greater in the ones taking cannabinoids. Additionally, sleep quality was measured and improved greatly in favor of the cannabinoid treatment.

The study concluded by saying that these findings demonstrate that, “in a meaningful proportion of otherwise treatment-resistant patients,” there was improvement in pain, sleep quality, and Subject Global Impression of Change (SGIC). It also noted that the cannabinoids were well tolerated with no new safety concerns identified.

So, although this was only a study of 300 people. It did appear that cannabinoids were effective in treating, or at least diminishing the neuropathic pain experienced by these people.

A different study, examined whether cannabinoids would suppress chronic inflammation and neuropathic pain. In short, again, it found that they do. It states that:

“The cannabinoids significantly potentiate glycine currents in dorsal horn neurons in rat spinal cord slices. The analgesic potency of 11 structurally similar cannabinoids is positively correlated with cannabinoid potentiation of the α3 GlyRs. In contrast, the cannabinoid analgesia is neither correlated with their binding affinity for CB1 and CB2 receptors. NMR analysis reveals a direct interaction between CBD and S296 in the third transmembrane domain of purified α3 GlyR. The cannabinoid-induced analgesic effect is absent in mice lacking the α3 GlyRs. Our findings suggest that the α3 GlyRs mediate glycinergic cannabinoid-induced suppression of chronic pain. These cannabinoids may represent a novel class of therapeutic agents for the treatment of chronic pain and other diseases involving GlyR dysfunction.”

CBD For Bone Growth

CBD for Bone Growth from That's Natural, V2

That’s right. CBD may promote bone growth and healing! Be it a broken bone, or something else, CBD may be solution you need!

The Journal of Bone and Mineral Research published a study regarding CBD and it’s ability to enhance fracture healing and stimulate lysyl hydrozylase activity in osteoblasts. Cannabinoid ligands help regulate bone mass. With over 6.3 million bone fractures a year, the following research is very promising for those suffering from one. Although they all vary in severity and placement, one thing they almost all share is immobilization and discomfort.

One of the most more serious bone fractures are femoral fractures. This study from the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research reports that CBD enhances certain biomechanical properties of healing rat mid-femoral fractures. CBD was shown to increase the maximal load and work-to-failure, but not the stiffness of femurs. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) did not share this effect.

Using micro-computed tomography, CBD was shown to transiently reduce the fracture callus size after just four weeks, but took 6-8 weeks to reach control level. The density of the callus material was not effected.

Lysine hydroxylation is involved in collagen crosslinking and stabilization. So, what does CBD have to do with lysine hydroxylation? “CBD stimulated mRNA expression of Plod1 in primary osteoblast cultures, encoding an enzyme that catalyzes lysine hydroxylation”. CBD was shown to also increase the collagen crosslink ratio, which is believed to contribute to the improved biomechanical properties of the fracture callus.

The study concluded by stating: “Taken together, these data show that CBD leads to improvement in fracture healing and demonstrate the critical mechanical role of collagen crosslinking enzymes.”

Although there is more research needed to conclusively state whether CBD helps with these issues, this anecdotal research is a great step in the right direction.

CBD For Bone Growth

CBD for Bone Growth, CBD for Osteoporosis, Cannabinoids for Bone Health, Full Spectrum CBD-Rich Hemp Oil from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life and www.thatsnatural.info - Pure, Potent, Trusted Colorado CBD products

A lot of people are curious as to how CBD can impact their bones. It turns out, that anecdotal research shows that it may impact them dramatically – at least in mice. According to this study, the endocannabinoid system, has been implicated in the regulation of bone metabolism.

Cannabinoids interact with type 1 (CBD1 and CB2) cannabinoid receptors and the GPR55 receptor to regulate cellular function through various signaling pathways. The study points out that endocannabinoids are actually produced in bone, but it is unknown how the mechanisms regulate their production work.

“Mice with CB(1) deficiency have high peak bone mass as a result of an osteoclast defect but develop age-related osteoporosis as a result of impaired bone formation and accumulation of bone marrow fat. Mice with CB(2) deficiency have relatively normal peak bone mass but develop age-related osteoporosis as a result of increased bone turnover with uncoupling of bone resorption from bone formation. Mice with GPR55 deficiency have increased bone mass as a result of a defect in the resorptive activity of osteoclasts, but bone formation is unaffected.”

The study goes on to say that cannabinoids are also produced within synovial tissues (a specialized connective tissue that lines the inner surface of capsules of synovial joints and tendon sheath. It makes direct contact with the synovial fluid lubricant, which it is primarily responsible for maintaining.) Preclinical studies show that cannabinoid receptor ligands are effective in treatment of inflammatory arthritis. “These data indicate that cannabinoid receptors and the enzymes responsible for ligand synthesis and breakdown play important roles in bone remodeling and in the pathogenesis of joint disease.”

Restless Leg Syndrome – Can CBD Help?

CBD for RLS, CBD for Restless Leg Syndrome, Full spectrum cannabinoids and terpenes from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life and www.thatsnatural.info

Dr. Allan Frankel, MD,  of GreenBridge Medical wrote his experience with CBD and restless leg syndrome  with his patients. Some people question whether Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is real – Dr. Frankel says it is, and that “millions of Americans suffer from some form of RLS”. It is typically characterized by leg discomfort or pain that is partially relieved by moving ones legs.

Dr Frankel became interested in testing out CBD for RLS because of it’s complexity and the difficulties that accompany it’s treatment. He started five patients on CBD with RLS. He says they take 4-6mgs a day, under the tongue, and quickly notice a difference. Of these five patients using CBD, three of them had nearly complete cessation of their symptoms and the other two had marked improvement.

Dr Frankel says his patients take the CBD before going to sleep, and some will take it in the morning when they awake. He goes on to say that it is important to consume a product that is full spectrum, containing a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes. “It is never just a one molecule deal”, he says. “It is the enourage effect of all of natures medicine working together, not just CBD. Always look for whole plant CBD.

Another study is occurring in Israel regarding CBD and it’s treatment of RLS. ““We are excited to be able to contract with an Israeli CRO to conduct a pre- and a clinical proof-of-concept study for this unmet medical need condition. Israel is in the forefront of clinical cannabinoid research and we are thankful for having this opportunity. RLS is a prevalent condition affecting between 3.9-14.3% of the US population. The available treatments are not very effective and often cause severe side effects,” said George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and Chief Executive Officer of AXIM Biotech. “We hope that our proprietary treatment modality utilizing cannabinoids and gabapentin in functional chewing gum will prove to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of RLS.””

CBD As A Treatment For Schizophrenia

Brain Health - Full Spectrum CBD-Rich Hemp Oil from That's Natural, V2

A study in December of 2017 was published by PubMed discussing how effective CBD might be for those suffering from Schizophrenia. The study was done in both animals and humans and indicates that CBD has antipsychotic properties. This is important because not many studies have involved humans.

So, exactly how did they do this? In a double-blind parallel-group trial, “patients with schizophrenia were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive CBD (1000 mg/day; N=43) or placebo (N=45) alongside their existing antipsychotic medication. Participants were assessed before and after treatment using the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS), the Brief Assessment of Cognition in Schizophrenia (BACS), the Global Assessment of Functioning scale (GAF), and the improvement and severity scales of the Clinical Global Impressions Scale (CGI-I and CGI-S).”

The results? After 6 weeks of treatment, the CBD group had far lower levels of psychotic symptoms than the placebo group. They were more likely to be rated as improved, and not as severely unwell by the treating clinician. Additionally, although it was not of statistical significance, the patients receiving CBD also showed greater improvement in cognitive performance and functioning than those receiving the placebo.

One of the best reports from this finding were on the side effects. It is stated that “CBD was well tolerated, and rates of adverse events were similar between the CBD and placebo groups.”

The study concluded by saying that these findings suggest benefits for patients with schizophrenia. CBD’s effects do not appear to depend on dopamine receptor antagonism – which means CBD probably represents an entirely new class of treatment for the disorder.

As more studies emerge, it becomes more and more clear that CBD may be the future of medicine. Although this is anecdotal evidence, it suggests that CBD may be an effective treatment for schizophrenia, with no side effects, and in a way no current medications work. That’s pretty exciting!!

Why Can’t You Count Sheep? CBD May Help!

Cannabinoids for Sleep - Full Spectrum CBD-Rich Hemp Oil from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

CBD may not actually help you count sheep, but it may help you sleep! This article by the Sleep Doctor (Dr. Michael J Breus), explains what he has discovered about CBD.

He explains that it is still a process in understanding exactly how CBD works for calming effects, pain-reducing effects, and anti-inflammatory effects in the body. He says that CBD is known to interact with a variety of receptors, proteins, and chemicals in the brain. He notes that CBD appears to affect a lot in body, including sleep-wake cycles and emotional regulation, to other health issues like inflammation, pain perception, and seizures. The endocannabinoid system makes their own form of cannabinoids. Research is showing that CBD may actually play a role in the growth of new brain cells, a process known as neurogenesis, and also having anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities.

As for sleep, Dr. Breus explains that CBD works for sleep because of its ability to reduce anxiety which is helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. He says that CBD has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain. In small doses, CBD stimulates alertness and reduces daytime sleepiness – enhancing people’s daytime performance. He says that CBD helps reduce REM behavior disorder in people with Parkinson’s Disease. Typically during REM, the body is largely paralyzed, known as REM atonia. With REM behavior disorder, this doesn’t occur, preventing sleepers from resting without moving. He states that CBD may also improve REM sleep abnormalities in people with PTSD.

Dr Breus continues on with the potential benefits of CBD including depression, pain, epilepsy, addiction, neuroprotection and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and more. He suggests a dose as small as 10mgs per day – noting that everyone’s body is different. He says that CBD is generally well tolerated by adults, but side effects may include low blood pressure, sleepiness, dry mouth, or lightheadedness.

CBD and Diabetes – Insulin Resistance

Can CBD Help Diabetes from That's Natural, V1

CBD and diabetes is a growing topic of discussion. Diabetes affects approximately 400 million people worldwide and is responsible for more than 5 million deaths per year. In America alone, over 30 million people have diabetes. It’s important to note the difference in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks the islets of Langerhans, destroying the insulin producing cells. The body no longer produces any insulin. Type 2 is far more common, and is caused by insufficient insulin being produced. This often slows metabolism and increases blood sugar levels.

Certain organs, the brain, specific glands, connective tissue, and immune cells have endocannabinoids and their receptors. The purpose of this is to always reach homeostasis.

Regardless of Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, the issue is the person is not getting enough insulin. Cannabinoid receptors, according to this article, have been found present in insulin producing cells, and the activation of the CB1 receptor has been linked to insulin production. A five-year study, released by the American Journal of Medicine showed that people using cannabis had a mean insulin resistance of 1.8, as compared to 2.2 for previous cannabis users, and 2.5 for those who never had used cannabis.

CBD’s use as an anti-inflammatory agent has been documented more than probably any other use for CBD. This is important with diabetes because chronic inflammation can play a role in the development of insulin resistance. Decreasing inflammation can also help the metabolism of the body.

Secondly, this article refers to CBD and its improvement on metabolism. A study in 2013, according to the article, found that cannabis users were found to have lower BMI, despite higher-than-average everyday consumption of calories. This is believed to mean that cannabis increases metabolic rate and helps the body process calories faster and more efficiently.

Finally, it should be noted that most of this research is strictly anecdotal. The evidence shows that diabetics can be greatly helped by CBD, but many Western Medical Doctors are still reluctant to encourage patients to use it.

CBD, The Endocannabinoid System, and Impacts on Alzheimer’s Disease

CBD for Alzheimer's Disease - Cannabinoids for Dementia - Research and News on the Endocannabinoid System from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

Most neuro-inflammatory disorders like Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and multiple sclerosis have had more studies completed showing how cannabidiol (CBD) may help them. Because of the complexity of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), and the poor availability of animal models that are relevant to the human disease, this isn’t entirely true.

However, there are still several studies showing how beneficial the endocannabinoid system, and compounds like CBD can be. One study explains that a deficiency in CB1 receptors can cause an acceleration in AD symptoms. So, it can be concluded that by feeding our body more cannabinoids, like CBD, these receptors would be more efficient. It states, “the findings indicate that CB1 deficiency can worsen AD-related cognitive deficits and support a potential role of CB1 as a pharmacologic target.”

In a more specific example of the endocannabinoid system, this study describes its role with alzheimer’s disease. It claims that as with the other neuro-inflammatory disorders, the endocannabinoid system may play a similar role. It states:

“the available data indicate that endocannabinoids are likely to play in this disorder a role similar to that suggested in other neurodegenerative diseases, that is, to represent an endogenous adaptive response aimed at counteracting both the neurochemical and inflammatory consequences of beta-amyloid-induced tau protein hyperactivity, possibly the most important underlying cause of AD. Furthermore, plant and synthetic cannabinoids, and particularly the non-psychotropic cannabidiol, might also exert other, non-cannabinoid receptor-mediated protective effects, including, but not limited to, anti-oxidant actions.”

It goes on to say “This might open the way to the use of cannabinoid receptor antagonists as therapeutic drugs for the treatment of cognitive deficits in the more advanced phases of this disorder.”

Although more research is needed to say conclusively whether it has a major positive impact on those suffering from AD, the evidence that does exist seems very promising.

That’s Natural’s products are full spectrum, and contain a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes. Each person has an endocannabinoid system, which is fueled by these cannabinoids and terpenes.

Why Cannabinoids May Be An Effective Treatment For Glaucoma

Cannabinoids for Glaucoma, CBD for Glaucoma - Research and News from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

Glaucoma is the second leading cause for blindness globally, and according to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, most never see it coming. Around 50% of the people that have glaucoma don’t know they have it. That means over 30 million people worldwide don’t know they have a disease that may cause them to go blind. Interestingly, blindness only came after cancer and heart disease as people’s major fear.

Glaucoma can often occur without any symptoms, and only 20% of people knew that it was related to elevated pressure within the eye. While these are some scary facts, cannabinoids may be an effective treatment according to this study. The abstract from this study states that:

“Cannabinoids effectively lower the intraocular pressure (IOP) and have neuroprotective actions. Thus, they could potentially be useful in the treatment of glaucoma. The purpose of this article is to provide the reader with an overview of the latest achievements in research into the potential use of cannabinoids for glaucoma.”

Remembering that glaucoma is caused by an increased pressure within the eye, the fact that cannabinoids effectively lowered the intraocular pressure is very encouraging.

Another study tested over thirty different cannabinoids and their ability to reduce intraocular pressure. All compounds were given intravenously, and a few were given topically. It also concluded that cannabinoids were active in reducing intraocular pressure, and nearly all of them had some measurable activity.

Each person has an endocannabinoid system, which is fueled by a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes. Because our products have these cannabinoids and terpenes, they are known to be full spectrum products. These full spectrum products help provide an entourage effect.
