Epilepsy is a neurological disorder associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain. This leads to sudden recurrent episodes of convulsions, loss of consciousness, or recurrent episodes of sensory disturbances. This condition can prevent people from caring out their daily tasks (driving, working, caring for others, eating, cooking, etc.) extremely difficult and can cause a person’s quality of life to become very low.
Most epilepsy patients are treated with anticonvulsants such as Tegretol, Keppra, Dilantin, Lamictcal, Topamax, Valproic acid, Phenobarbital, etc. which can have numerous side effects. Side effects caused from anticonvulsants include:
heart arrhythmia, toxicity, liver damage, dizziness, lethargy, depression, headaches, weight gain, nausea, etc.
These anticonvulsants aren’t 100% promising either. About 30% of patients who suffer from epilepsy are resistant to anticonvulsant treatment.
Cannabidiol (CBD) has been found to be an all-natural, safe, alternative therapy for epileptics. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that is found in the cannabis plant and has shown to have neuroprotective properties.
CBD oil has aided in controlling/reducing the frequency of seizures a person experiences who has epilepsy.
CBD is becoming very popular in the epilepsy community and has been found to be a very therapeutic alternative when treating epilepsy.
People who suffer from epilepsy may gain a significant benefit with the use of CBD and live a higher quality life.
Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory, thinking skills, and the ability to carry out daily activities. It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that slowly worsens over time and is caused by brain cell death. It is not 100% known how this destruction process occurs.
One thought of how this occurs is a brain protein fragment called beta-amyloid accumulates in the brain leading to a disruption of communication between brain cells and eventually leads to brain cell death. This is the theory of the potential cause of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is a devasting disease and continues to slowly progress over time until a person can no longer care for themselves.
Sadly, there is no known cure for this disease. However, new treatments with CBD oil has been found to possibly slow down the progression of the disease and decrease the process of cellular death.
Neurodegenerative diseases often involve inflammation of the neural tissue, leading to chronic neuronal deterioration. CBD oil works as an anti-inflammatory, therefore allowing the disease process to slow down.
Utilizing CBD oil could be a potential alternative medication to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s.
In addition, CBD oil acts as an antioxidant. The release of reactive oxygen and oxidative stress are both key components to Alzheimer’s disease and are linked to immune inflammation. Oxidative stress is caused by free radical production, which in turn generates inflammation in the body and damages cells.
An antioxidant helps to slow down the production of free radicals and the progression of cellular death. It would help aid in the progression of memory loss and other neurological symptoms which Alzheimer’s patients suffer from.
Alzheimer’s is a very difficult disease to live with for the patient and for family and friends. It can cause severe changes in personality which can be hard to cope with. A once loving, kind person can become mean, cold, and completely seem as if they are a different person.
CBD oil may be worth looking into for a person who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s to help improve their quality of life and an attempt to slow down the progression of this life changing disease.
CBD is the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory compound found in the cannabis plant. Painful symptoms of PMS have been linked to inflammation. Do you suffer from painful menstrual cramps, fatigue, irritability, breast tenderness, and mood swings? Then CBD may be the answer for you!
You can finally ditch the Midol and Ibuprofen once and for all. Over the counter medications used to treat PMS symptoms has the potential to cause other health issues.
CBD has been proven to be 60-100% more effective than the over the counter medications and is safer to take.
It will aid in relaxing the uterus and decrease uterine contractions and help alleviate mood swings as well. PMS symptoms can be debilitating for females. CBD can help increase the quality of lives for women.
Unlike the mind-altering effects of THC, you can take Hemp CBD in the morning and throughout the day when experiencing symptoms without feeling tired/groggy.
As with taking any medication, you can start low and slowly increase the dosage as needed until you feel relief.
In addition, you can use the CBD pain relief cream to rub on your pelvis to help relieve pain instantly when experiencing those excruciating cramps. You can apply as often as needed for optimal pain relief.
While pain killers can help alleviate migraine symptoms temporarily, you may be concerned about other side effects. Hemp CBD may be the solution for migraine/headache relief without any known side effects while still being able to function throughout the day.
Migraines/headaches may be related to a number of things, including stress, allergies, hormone changes, loud sounds, strong smells, physical exertion, genetics, food/food additives, changes in sleep pattern, medications, or changes in environmental factors.
A migraine attack can last up to 72 hours if untreated. The frequency of migraines varies from person to person. Migraines may be rare or can occur several times a month. When a migraine hits, a person may feel completely drained, dizzy, weak, sensitive to light/sound, moody, or confused. These symptoms can be extremely debilitating and really affect one’s quality of life.
Hemp CBD has been found to have numerous health benefits, and one of them is helping with chronic/acute pain, including headaches/migraines.
CBD is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD acts by preventing the body from metabolizing anandamide (a compound associated with pain regulation). High doses of anandamide in the body reduces your feelings of pain. CBD may help those who suffer from migraines/headaches and be the solution for migraine/headache treatment.
It is recommended to take CBD daily for optimal pain relief. You may also take CBD daily to prevent future migraine attacks from occurring.
CBD Hemp Oil helps aid in slowing the growth of cancer and/or cause death in cancer cells by blocking cell growth. CBD also has the ability in reducing some tumor cells from reproducing as well as reducing the spread of some types of cancer by preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumors.
Studies show that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting the normal cells.
The action of CBD that aids in cancer treatments is its ability to decrease inflammation and change how cells reproduce.
A study in mice showed that CBD may have the potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer by protecting the colon against inflammation.
Another study showed that in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancers it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells.
In metastatic cancers, cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.
When used with chemotherapy, it was also found to make chemo more effective by increasing the cancer cell death without harming normal cells.
It can also help with the side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea, loss of appetite, pain, and fatigue.

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in both men and women.
A major risk factor for cardiovascular problems is high blood pressure and can lead to early death. Blood pressure medication is commonly used to stabilize blood pressure and prevent further cardiac damage. The only issue is that most blood pressure medications have numerous side effects and will only work for short term. This can lead to an increase dosage of medication or an addition of medication to one’s regimen. Since most blood pressure medications are filtered through the kidneys, this can ultimately cause other problems, such as decreased kidney function/failure. Hemp CBD oil has been shown to help aid in lowering blood pressure naturally. This process works by reducing the tension in the walls of blood vessels. CBD has been found to promote vasorelaxation to aid in reduction of blood pressure and helps improve circulation in the body. In turn, this may help people decrease the amount of medications they take to regulate their blood pressure, or even help get rid of their blood pressure medications completely.
Increased blood pressure has also been associated with stressful environmental conditions. In addition, CBD helps to decrease stress in the body, which will naturally lead to a reduction of blood pressure.
CBD has also shown to decrease inflammation in the body. Inflammation is linked with various health conditions, especially hypertension and other cardiac disease. With CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects, CBD can help reduce blood pressure by reducing chronic inflammation in the body. CBD has also been shown to decrease inflammation in the myocardium (the muscle tissue surrounding the heart). These are just a few of the many benefits that CBD can have on cardiovascular health and help protect your heart.
CBD has emerged as a natural alternative to prescription medications for hypertension without any known side effects. Cannabidiol protects your brain and heart which can decrease risks for strokes and heart attacks.
Hemp CBD oil is able to improve mental health illnesses due to its ability to regulate function over the endocannabinoid system. This system is specifically important for managing mood, pain, the immune system and nervous system. CBD regulates the release of neurotransmitters, which changes the chemical production and absorption of serotonin/dopamine levels within the brain. CBD has been known to enhance the activation of serotonin receptors, which helps regulate mood, social behavior, appetite, digestion, sleep, memory, and sexual function. CBD also effects the dopamine receptors which is responsible for regulating behavior, cognition, and motivation. A dysfunction of neurotransmission in the brain, such as a decrease of serotonin/dopamine levels, could lead to mental health disorders. CBD oil aids in effectively influencing healthy functioning of the neurotransmitters within the brain and can be used as an alternative for many mental health disorders. This could be the solution to the mental health crisis that we are currently facing in the world today.
Neuropathy is nerve pain derived from irritated or damaged nerves. Symptoms include: paresthesia (tingling sensation in extremities), abnormal sensitivity/intense experience of touch, burning, weakness, muscle wasting, or nocturnal pain.
There are many causes of nerve pain. Some causes include:
1. Diabetic Neuropathy- nerve damage due to elevated blood sugar
2. Vasculitis- narrowed blood vessels that reduce oxygen flow to the nerves and lead to damaged nerve tissue
3. Stress- prolonged stress can lead to inflamed muscles and damage movement in the joints
4. Autoimmune Diseases- Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjogren’s syndrome are the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy. These diseases affect the connective tissues, joints, and organs by damaging nerve fibers or the sheathing surrounding them.
5. Chemotherapy/Radiation induced neuropathy- when treating tumors or cancer, chemotherapy and radiation can cause extensive nerve damage and severe chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy
6. Viruses- several viruses such as Epstein-Barr, West Nile, shingles, Herpes Simplex, and Lyme Disease attack the nerve tissues causing pain.
7. Traumatic Injuries- Injury to nerves from sports, accidents, falls, or surgical procedures can be minor or catastrophic and require prolonged management to restore optimal function.
Neuropathy can be quite painful and disabling. This is no solution or cure for neuropathy, but people who have nerve pain can experience relief using Hemp CBD.
Typical treatment for neuropathy includes Gabapentin, Lyrica, anti-depressants, over-the counter pain medications, opioids, steroid injections, or nerve blocks. These medications have the potential for abuse and addiction. There are also many side effects of taking these medications. Studies show that patients who experience neuropathic pain have benefited from cannabinoid (CBD) treatment. CBD has been found to suppress inflammatory and neuropathic pain by targeting a3 glycine receptors in the body. CBD has helped many patients wean off their medications completely or have helped them decrease the amount of medications needed in order to manage their neuropathic pain.
There are over 20 million people who suffer from neuropathic pain in the U.S. If you are one of the millions that suffer from this debilitating pain, Hemp CBD can provide a form of relief to improve your quality of life.
We offer a 5-star Hemp CBD oil to help manage your neuropathy and relieve your everyday pain. You will also benefit from the topical muscle/joint cream, which you can apply directly to any painful area.
Hemp CBD oil reduces pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort related to many health conditions. It is a great alternative to pharmaceuticals since it is non-addictive and doesn’t give you that “high/groggy” feeling. CBD works by stopping the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. Anandamide breaks down quickly in the body. As CBD halts the breakdown process of anandamide, this ultimately leads to increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream reducing the amount of pain a person feels. Hemp CBD oil is a great option for people who suffer from chronic pain and rely on more addictive medications such as opioids. In addition, it is also a great alternative for over the counter meds, such as NSAIDs or Tylenol, which can be hard on your kidneys/liver and have other side effects if used for a period of time. It has also been found that people did not build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD, therefore they did not need to continually increase their dose. There are also no known side effects of using Hemp CBD oil and is a safe, natural pain med alternative.
In conclusion, CBD oil will benefit people who suffer from chronic/acute pain, arthritis, and pain associated with autoimmune diseases.
