The Hemp & CBD Stigma
Many believe hemp and marijuana are one in the same and this subject still seems quite taboo around the dinner table. There's a lot of stigma around cannabis use and if you don't know the difference it can be overwhelming and scary. Here's what you need to know about cannabis and it's many uses. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants, along with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. As of 2019, clinical research on CBD included studies related to anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. The lower the level of THC, the less high you get and the more it leans to the medicinal aspect of CBD as a whole, hence our selection of THC FREE products. The history of cannabis and its usage by humans dates back to at least the third millennium BC in written history, and possibly further back by archaeological evidence. For millennia, the plant has been valued for its use for fiber and rope, as food and medicine, and for its psychoactive properties for religious and recreational use. The earliest restrictions on cannabis were reported in the Islamic world by the 14th century. In the 19th century, it began to be restricted in colonial countries, often associated with racial and class stresses. In the middle of the 20th century, international coordination led to sweeping restrictions on cannabis throughout most of the globe. Entering the 21st century, some nations began to take measures to decriminalize or legalize cannabis. History of cannabis - Wikipedia When you think of Hemp and CBD, our minds most likely lead straight to 'weed' and 'getting high'. Did you know that CBD comes from the hemp plant and hemp has a multitude of uses from clothing and accessories, to building homes with natural FIREPROOF insulation concrete blocks? Yes, there is such a thing as hempcrete used to aid in the building of homes and is stated to lend a ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT annotation to its use! I don't own a home with hempcrete, but I can attest to owning a few purses made of hemp and they do not get me high when I smell them (It's like finding a good leather bag and smelling it). Just the simple fact that hemp has a zero carbon footprint means not only are you helping mother earth when using it, you are leaving this world better than you found it. In my opinion, that should be each and every human's life goal to insure the future for generations to come. If I asked you if you would choose a natural additive of herbs to your family dinner or a powdered synthetic, which would you choose? What about food coloring, would you choose natural food coloring made from natural resources or would you choose the chemical squirt bottles with dyes banned in European countries because of their detrimental effects on the human body? Well, I can say that as a woman, mother, and wife I will always choose the most natural choice given for myself and my FAMILY! Although CBD still isn't FDA approved, CBD's health benefits are increasing with each year as research shows CBD can and is used as an amazing therapeutic and medicinal application. It is also cost efficient unlike a lot of synthetics that are made to only mask the problem, not cure it. We need to educate ourselves and everyone around us that CBD has many more uses than most people know about. CBD isn't just for getting high, it's for getting HEALTHY!!! Until next time..... https://www.greenhausbtx.com/
Crushing The Opioid Epidemic with Cannabis
Today, professional athletes are looked upon as not only inspiration and role models, but as a goal in life. Something as simple as going to sporting events and seeing how an athlete resonates with their fans, can have a huge impact on a child to want that same lifestyle. The age for children to start competitive team sports is as young as kindergarten. This gives that athlete over a decade of skills so they can attain that dream of athletic fame. Here is where injuries come in. It happens, and it happens all the time. The toll of high-injury sports creates a vicious cycle of playing, pain, and medical treatment for relief that has led athletes to abuse medication. When the overuse of drugs like Tylenol and Aspirin don’t cut it, opioids are introduced. In 2018, The opioid crisis exceeded prior epidemics, including AIDS, and was deemed a public health emergency by the President of the United States. More than 140 Americans were dying daily from an opioid overdose according to the Centers for Disease Control. This might not seem to have much to do with young athletes, but high intensity sports produce a high number of severe injuries needing longer than wanted recovery time. Between 2006 and 2013, surgeries for sport-related injuries in youth increased by 55 percent (1). In another study, opioid prescriptions for adolescents doubled between 1996 and 2007 (2). As these athletes age, their perseverance and competitive nature do not go hand in hand with time needed for injuries to heal. For example, a study of youth participants stated football and wrestling have approximately 50% higher odds of nonmedical use of opioids compared to same-age students who did not participate in these sports. Male athletes were twice as likely to be prescribed painkillers and four times as likely to misuse or abuse their prescriptions. I’m not saying that all youth athletes will misuse prescription drugs, I’m not saying all athletes will become famous either. I’m just saying that as a mom of four youth athletes, I have been the one to give Tylenol and Aspirin to fix a hurt. I have taken them to the hospital numerous times and then given them prescription drugs because the pain was bad enough to warrant it. I am sure that everyone would agree with me when I convey that all of us parents of athletes just want to support our children and do what is best for them. This is where I introduce you to CBD for pain managements and relief. We already know “CBD” is the abbreviation for the specific cannabis-derived compound, Cannabidiol. A naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a Phyto cannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants, along with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. Occasionally, you will see people misuse the term CBD to refer more generally to cannabinoids, which would include not only Cannabidiol, but other cannabinoids like Delta-9 THC, cannabigerol (CBG), Delta-8, etc. CBD is non-habit forming, natural, and has no adverse side effects that can cause any damage to internal organs when using it. You cannot overdose on CBD either. Did you know that even though some CBD oils have trace amounts of THC, there are CBD oils and topicals that are completely THC free, yet still give amazing results? Check out our CBD items for pain management and let’s teach our athletes that there are other ways to recover and break the vicious cycle of opioid abuse.

Benefits & Tips for Using Cannabis Tinctures
The latest Cowen & Co. consumer survey shows that at least 7% of adults in the U.S. use cannabidiol, or CBD. Based on this surprising level of consumer awareness, Cowen “conservatively” sees CBD use growing to 10 percent of U.S. adults or 25 million consumers by 2025. The Cowen survey found that CBD use is highest among consumers aged 18 to 34. Tinctures, or liquid extracts, accounted for the biggest chunk of the market at 44 percent, followed by topicals at 26 percent, capsules at 22 percent and beverages at 19 percent. There are lots of benefits that come with using cannabis tinctures over other forms of cannabis. Some of their greatest benefits include the following: Faster Effects - When placed under the tongue, it’s absorbed into your bloodstream right away which means you’ll experience effects very quickly. Longer Shelf Life - Due to their alcohol base which helps to preserve the plant compounds, they remain effective for long periods. When stored properly, they can last for several years. Different Cannabinoid Options - Various cannabis tinctures contain different amounts of cannabinoids. You can buy tinctures that are high in THC or high in CBD. You can also purchase tinctures that contain high concentrations of other useful cannabinoids, such as CBC, CBN, and CBG. Discrete/Ease of Use - Tinctures are a discrete alternative for those who want to use cannabis but don’t want people in their business. There’s no lingering odor, and it’s easy to place a few drops under your tongue when you need relief without people noticing. Low Calorie - Need I say more? Additional tips for using tinctures the right way: If you don’t like the taste, dilute them with a bit of juice or flavored water. To avoid contamination, keep the dropper clean and avoid touching it to your mouth or bare hands. After taking your tincture, avoid eating or drinking for at least 15 minutes. Remember, when mixing tinctures with drinks or food to make them more palatable, it will take longer for you to experience the effects. Premium CBD | Best Prices | Free Shipping (greenhausbtx.com)
Can Cannabis Relieve Parkinson's Symptoms?
Parkinson's disease is a chronic degenerative disease that affects 1% of the population over the age of 60. Globally, an estimated 9 million people may be affected by 2030 in the world's 15 most populous countries. Could cannabis help relieve Parkinson's symptoms? The main symptoms of the disease are motor: tremors at rest, stiffness, unstable posture, and slowing of movements. But it does not only affect the elderly: there are some cases of juvenile minority Parkinson's that occur in people under 40 years of age. Read also: Can CBD Be Mixed with Antidepressants? What factors cause Parkinson's disease? Surely in 5% of cases, it has a genetic explanation. The other 95% remains a mystery. Research suggests that in addition to genetic causes, there could also be environmental factors that would favor the development of the disease, although it is not yet clear what these factors would be. Parkinson's is an incurable disease. It causes the death of neurons in the area of the brain responsible for producing dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter essential for neurological signals to travel properly through the brain. The lack of dopamine caused by Parkinson's alters the area of the basal ganglia, which are responsible for controlling movement. Therefore, the main symptoms of Parkinson's at first are motor, although, over time sleep problems, depression, anxiety, cognitive impairment, and in the final phases, dementia may also appear. Read also: Cannabis and Autism: a way of hope Why can cannabis help relieve Parkinson's symptoms? Currently, the only possible treatment for Parkinson's is levodopa (L-dopa). This medication is used to make up for a lack of dopamine, but it stops being helpful after a few years and has irreversible side effects, such as involuntary movements (dyskinesia). That's why researchers are looking for a drug that can be effective in the long term and without side effects. Could it be cannabis? Cannabis is composed of 85 phytocannabinoids, of which cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the main ones. The properties of CBD and THC have been the most studied to date and are the ones that have the greatest medicinal effects. CBD is non-psychoactive and its relaxing, anxiolytic, antipsychotic, and neuroprotective effects are known. THC is primarily responsible for the psychotropic effects of cannabis. The phytocannabinoids in cannabis act in our body thanks to the ability to associate with the cannabinoid receptors we have in our nervous system. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. The basal ganglia of the brain, which are the most affected by Parkinson's, have a significant amount of cannabinoid receptors. That is why cannabis could be a possible medicine to treat Parkinson's movement disorders.

The combination of CBD and THC has been shown to be more effective as a treatment for some diseases, as CBD has the ability to modulate the side effects of THC. CBD inhibits the psychotropic effects of THC and improves your tolerance. Recent studies have shown that Parkinson's patients who used cannabis improved symptoms by 46%. These symptoms included bradykinesia (slowing of movement), muscle stiffness, and tremor. Cannabis use also improved dyskinesia (involuntary movements), the long-term side effect of levodopa. An improvement in sleep quality and pain relief caused by muscle stiffness could also be observed. Recent reviews also suggest that cannabis use could improve symptoms of depression and improve mood. The combination of THC and CBD could be a therapeutic alternative to improve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. More studies experimenting with a larger number of patients are needed for these cannabis compounds to find acceptance as a treatment among the medical class. Studies cannot be carried out massively as long as cannabis continues to be considered a drug of abuse in many countries.
How to do a relaxing back massage with Cannabis CBD?
The back is the area of our body where stress and emotions accumulate the most. Jobs with great physical exhaustion, bad postures, stress, and negative emotions often translate into muscle stiffness and contractures that cause us more or less intense pain. A relaxing massage with Cannabis oil with CBD will relieve these pains quickly and safely. Most of us dare not perform massages for fear of making the pain worse or causing an injury. But if there is no muscle or neurological injury diagnosed by the doctor, we can safely practice a relaxing massage with CBD massage oils or gels. CBD is especially indicated for these cases. In addition to being a totally natural product without side effects, the application of CBD topically has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects that will enhance the mechanical action of massage and relieve pain more quickly. Read also: Quality Cannabis and the Science of Designing an Experience Technique to do a back massage Use a small amount of slightly warm oil and spread it evenly throughout your back. It is not necessary to use large quantities, just enough to be able to work the fabrics comfortably. Perform the massage at a constant pace, without changing the intensity or speed of the movements and, above all, without causing pain. 1- Effleurage: With your hands open, start the massage on the lower back with slight pressure and go up, in the direction of the heart, to finish on the outside of the back. Do not press when you are heading down to restart the movement. This process can be repeated for 3 to 5 minutes to warm up the muscles of the back, shoulders, and neck. 2- Petrissage or kneading: Start with shorter, more pressured circular motions than before. You can use your palms, fingers, or knuckles. This technique can be applied in 2 to 5 minutes and will help us improve deep circulation. 3- Percussion: Perform percussion movements with cupped hands, all fingers together at one point, or hands closed in a fist for 2 to 3 minutes. These movements help stimulate and decompress the tissue. 4- Elevation: Start the technique of lifting the muscles: with the fingers closed and the thumb separated, apply pressure with rotating lifting movements. Use both hands alternately. Apply this technique starting at the lower back and heading up 2 to 3 times. 5- Fan: To perform this technique, you have to stand at the head of the table or stretcher where you perform the massage. With your thumbs just below your neck and on both sides of your spine, perform a fan movement with your thumbs outstretched, pressing gently toward your lower back. You see alternating the pressure of the thumbs, making movements in the direction of the hips. Be careful to massage the muscles next to the spine, not the spine directly. Read also: Why MDMA-Assisted Therapy Has Gone Mainstream And to finish, place yourself again next to the person you are performing the massage with, put one hand on the hip opposite you and the other on the hip nearby. It makes a fluid movement by approaching the opposite one and moving away from the nearby one so that they rub in the center. Repeat this movement up your back until you reach your shoulders at least 3 times. Once the massage is over, remind the person you have practiced it on not to get up abruptly from the table or stretcher. The relaxation produced by massage could make us lose our balance and fall to the ground! Where to get CBD massage oils and gels? CBD massage oils and gels are formulated with natural products based on hemp seed oil and CANNABIS CBD extract, combined with other natural essential oils. Hemp seed oil is cold-pressed to extract all medicinal properties, oils rich in Omega3 and Omega6, beta-carotene, and vitamins E, A, and C. Cannabis CBD extract has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing properties. All these products combined, in addition to helping us relax the muscles, will moisturize the skin of the back and increase its elasticity. In addition, you can use them to relieve other pathologies.

Can CBD play a part in your skincare regime?
Many cannabinoids have natural anti-inflammatory properties, so it makes perfect sense that CBD skincare products are becoming all the rage. It is true to say that all of us suffer from acne to some degree at some point in our lives. Whether it is a few spots or a more significant amount, it can cause a lack of self-confidence and scarring to some people. It often develops during our teenage years but can also affect people who are older as well. Acne occurs when there is a build-up of oil that has been made by the sebaceous gland. This often occurs when hormone levels change in the blood, leading the sebaceous gland to produce more oil – known as sebum. The build-up of this oil, along with the skin’s inability to properly shed dead skin from the pores can cause a blockage, resulting in blackheads or whiteheads. Sebum is normally good for our skin as it helps to protect it and keep it healthy. However, when it is in excess, it can start to cause problems. The bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes is present on the skin and also doesn’t usually cause problems, but it can breed in the excess sebum oil, causing the body to produce puss-filled or red spots. It is well established that CBD has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Researchers believe that this means that CBD might be able to help with numerous health problems, from some autoimmune diseases to pain relief. Acne is known to be an inflammatory skin condition, meaning that inflammation could be one of the causes of acne, as well as a factor in making it worse. It stands to reason, then, that CBD could prevent, reduce or calm acne.
