What You Should Know About CBD & Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is a very popular way of staying in shape. Here’s how CBD can help that process. 

Intermittent fasting is one of the most popular ways to stay in shape right now, most of it due to the fact that it’s an easy method to follow. When fasting, all you have to do is spend 16 hours or more without eating; you set your schedule according to your demands and have free rein to eat whatever you want. Of course, the healthier you eat, the better your results. Still, sixteen hours is sixteen hours, and the fatigue and cravings for meals can make even the strongest-willed people break their fast. Here’s where CBD comes in.

Link Between Cannabis And The Munchies Is More Complicated Than You Might Think

The munchies are real — at least sometimes and for some people — and science has only begun to understand why.

Given the long shared history cannabis has with humanity, several associations have long endured. One of those connections is marijuana and “the munchies” — the increased appetite attributed to weed consumption.

It’s not a completely unfounded association. Many medical marijuana patients cite cannabis’s uncanny ability to induce appetite as a reason for its therapeutic use, yet many pot smokers will tell you they don’t experience an increased urge to stuff their pie holes at all. As it turns out, the munchies are real — at least sometimes and for some people — and science has only begun to understand why.

Lighting Up For Better Skin: Can Marijuana Help Acne?

In some studies, THC appears to ease inflammation inside and outside the body, therefore decreasing the threat of acne.  

While it is true that the cannabinoids in cannabis can have some effect on the skin and can treat itching and even skin diseases like psoriasis, marijuana’s impact on the skin adds a level of complexity to the debate. 

We know that marijuana increases testosterone, which may cause acne, at least in some individuals.

Marijuana For A Lean Physique? Science Weighs In

Researchers studying diabetes, metabolism and obesity have become increasingly interested in how cannabis may be an effective therapy for human systems out of balance.

Munchies. It’s an ongoing punchline by and about marijuana enthusiasts and it’s not all folklore. Marijuana can affect the mechanisms that trigger hunger in our brain. Don’t assume that’s a bad thing. In fact, it may just help you stay lean and mean … and high as well, if you want.

Cannabis Seems Good for Headaches, But Why?

Headaches are common, about half the population routinely suffers from pain coming from within the cranium, and so is using cannabis to seek relief.

But just like with other sources of chronic pain, as well as the nature of pain itself, exactly how cannabis provides relief is poorly understood, mostly because it’s understudied.

Cannabis Stocks Are Scrambling to Conserve Cash

A year ago, all expectations were that the marijuana industry would have investors seeing green -- and the first quarter certainly suggested this opinion was accurate. At the end of March, more than a dozen pot stocks had risen by at least 70% on a year-to-date basis, and Wall Street was touting some exorbitant sales forecasts by 2030, one of which called for up to $200 billion in annual sales.

Leukemia and medical marijuana: Here are the facts

Few experiences are more devastating than a cancer diagnosis. A leukemia diagnosis can be especially jarring, given that we typically hear of it in movies as a predator of children, even though the medical community has found that children have the highest state of remission at 94 percent, with adults at up to 40 percent after five years.

A cancer of the blood, leukemia affects the bone marrow, red blood cells, white blood cells and the cells that cause clotting. Its symptoms include chills, weakness, susceptibility to infection, weight loss, bruising, swollen lymph nodes and bone pain.

Demand For CBD Oil Could Lead To Christmas Tree Shortage

Growers are choosing to grow crops that are easier to take care of and that produce more money than seasonal Christmas trees.

Christmas trees take their time to grow and develop, which is why some growers are tempted to plant less seasonal and more profitable crops, such as hemp. This change could make it hard for those who are looking for a Christmas tree to find the option they want.
