Hannabis Release Lavender Bath Salts

RRP: £19.99

We are excited to kick off the new year with a brand new product release, which of course had to be a bath product because people just cannot get enough of CBD baths! But why did we choose lavender & why bath salts? 

The story behind choosing lavender is a pretty simple one… Our director Nicole is absolutely obsessed with lavender, she would live in a lavender field if she could. With the entire company kind of being named after Hannah as she was the founder of the brand well over a year before it became what it is today, it only seemed fair that we started to bring out products that we could dedicate to Nicole & her hard work within the company. This is how ‘Nicole’s Obsession’ (lavender bath salts) were born. We do also hope to bring out an entire lavender range under the umbrella of Nicole’s obsession. 

We chose to do bath salts first, even though there is a few different CBD bath salts available on the market, but all the ones we have ever tried either go clumpy in the package or do not dissolve very well in the water, we wanted to over come this & provide a product that didn’t clump & stayed in is grandy salt form & dissolved with ease because there is nothing worse than laying on a bed of salt in the bottom of your bath. 

Here is a quick break down of the salts, because in true Hannabis style we couldn’t keep them simple & only use one or two types of salt, then infuse that with CBD….

  • 200g bags – organic fair trade cotton
  • 200mg isolate CBD
  • Epsom salt
  • Dead sea salt
  • Pink himalayan salt
  • Lavender buds
  • Rose petals
  • Lavender essential oil
  • 1 x amethyst crystal

Why Isolate CBD?

We choose to use isolate CBD in our bath products because it actually dissolves into the water, where as an oil based product would just sit on the top & you would not get the full effects of having a CBD bath.

Imogen’s Life Has Changed

How CBD baths have changed my life

 

The first time I used CBD in the bath it changed my life. I have hEDS (Hypermobility Elhers  Danlos Syndrome) and PoTS (a type of dysautonomia) – with this I get various vascular problems and it hurts so much – varicose veins, heart palpitations from poor circulation, oh and I’ve lost count at the amount of times I’ve been checked for pulmonary embolism (blood clots that move round the body), my skin is described as ‘translucent’ (meaning you can see ALL the little tiny veins as well as the big ones!) So my blood and veins can cause a lot of problems are times.

After using the 50mg CBD bath bombs and the 200mg Bubble Bar I noticed a dramatic
difference in my veins. I’m usually getting out the bath with bulging veins and sometimes  they throb and hurt, you can see every little tiny one, on my hands and down my legs and honestly I hate it. But after using the CBD bath bomb and bubble bar.. they were no longer visible. After 2 days I was still having this experience and neither me or my partner could believe it!!

My skin is super soft by nature, another EDS thing, but getting out that bath I felt like SILK. It improved some stress spots that had come up on my back and neck and i was beginning to feel a lot more confident in my skin. I get rashes, swelling, andhives from allergies and even just temperature changes, so it was nice to see these being settled by my baths too! The only thing that changed was adding CBD to my bath and I cannot believe I didnt think of it before.

I took a trip to the CBD expo and had a nasty fall, noone had any bathbombs on them so I
was ran a bath with 300mg body oil put in as a substitute… oh my god. The pain had
dramatically reduced and by no means was I okay but in comparison to the pain I was
having prior to that it was a dramatic improvement. All I could think about was the lady from  one of the stalls earlier telling me how CBD in the bath was “a waste of time” and had no effects, oh how she was missing a trick and not realising what she had at her finger tips (she had many therapeutic bath products as well as CBD products). Therefore I was so happy to be asked to write on my experience on CBD in the bath, because let’s me honest, people need to know of this sorcery! To witness others not realise the benefits made me even more passionate to get this down onpaper!

CBD in the bath has changed my life!

Hannabis Plant Trees

You’ve been watching the countdown all week, now is the time! If you were luck enought to catch InfinityCBD’s announcment yesterday you’ll know that Hannabis is excited to be partnering with InfinityCBD and there new InfiniTree Project. But what does that mean exactly…

It means…

For every product you purchase from Hannabis with a value of over £10 we will pay for and plant a tree.

Yes! You heard it right, Hannabis are planting trees! and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’ve been following us for a while or had a chance to read our bio, you’ll know that we’re quite councious about the planet and what we can do to look after it. Where possible our packaging is eco-friendly and/or recyclable including our subscription boxes and christmas advent calenders where we use popcorn, instead of polistiren packing beads, that can be fed to the birds or thread onto some string and hung on your tree! 

Why Are You Planting Trees?

Not only do trees help clean the air we breathe (pretty important I’d say!) they filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!

On top of all that, trees can have a far-reaching effect in stemming global warming by removing huge amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. By planting trees we helping to save the planet.

Where are you planting trees?

While there many important sites that need planting, we’ve chosen Peru as our first focus. The Amazon rainforest covers more than 60% of Preu. The trees we plant with be planted alongside the charity One Tree Planted, who are aiming to restore the “Buffer Zone” between Tambopata National Reserve and the city of Puerto Maldonado where many of the wildlife there are at risk and need protecting. including over 10% of the worlds bird species, jaguars and hundreds of other species who live among the remaining forest.

Re-planting there will also go a long way to helping the local farmers who rely on the land. The trees will begin to help restore the degraded land and the local community will receive education, training and technical assistance to ensure the success of the project.

Can we be involved?

We welcome all our customers to continue buying your favourite products and we’ll automatically donate of cut of the profits (on products over £10) towards planting trees and saving the planet. 

If you run your own CBD company we’d love you to be involved too. As an up and coming industry, we have to learn from previous mistakes, we have to do things the right way. If you want to be involved, please email InfinityCBD and an email and begin the subject with “InfiniTree”

Thank you so much for reading!

Trees & Spirituality

Trees & spiritual practice

Trees have a very interesting role when it comes to spirituality, they have been seen as sacred in many cultures. They are both beautiful & symbolic & can have very powerful influences in our spiritual lives.

Most religious or spiritual practices involved trees in one way or another. Many mythologies around the globe have stories of world or cosmic tree. The roots, trunk & branches of a tree reperence the underworld, earth & heavens.

Biblical scripture also mention trees, “tree of life” & “tree of knowledge of good & evil” in the book of Genesis. Buddhism also has connections, especially to the Bodhi tree where Buddha was known to have reached enlightenment as he sat & meditated. Druids have been known to practice worship among sacred groves of trees. 

Tu B’Shevat is known as the birthday of trees, whichis the 15th day of the month of Aquarius, which changes yearly. In 2020 it will fall on Sunday 9th February & end in the evening of Monday 10th February. It is known as the 24 hour window in time where the trees receive their energy for the entire year-whether they will grow & whether fruits will grow from them. 

Trees are a souce of energy on so many different levels. They help people physically by providing oxygen & shade. They also provide shelter & habitats for animals. Some trees also give their fruit & wood to help ensure our survival.

The energy from trees can also affect our mental, emotion & spiritual bodies of energy. For example, the peace & serenity people feel when they sit under a tree or walk through a forest. The feelings of joy & excitment that children feel when climbing through a tree or the magic of spending time in a treehouse.

Like all living things, trees have an energy frequency or vibrations & an aura. With roots reaching deep into the earth & they have excellent grounding energy. Their vibrations are slower, deeper * more concentrated compared to some other living things. They give out the energy vibe of safety, secruity & stability. 

By coming into contact with a tree you will pick up these vibrations whether you are consciously aware of it or not. You begin to resonate with the tree’s energy & you become more centred & grounded. This can help explain the comfort many people feel when they are next to a tree. Tree hugging doesn’t seem so bad now, eh?


Working with trees for spirituality

Trees grow like we are supposed to: against our nature. What do I mean by that? Well essentially, our human nature is this Desire to Receive for the Self Alone. As we grow against it, we become like the Creator, who is all sharing, good, and completely infinite. As we become like the Creator, we rise above those negativities that hold us back from our potential.

As mentioned before, spending time among trees can help center your energy in a positive way. Sharing the beauty of a tree can be very healing and can help you reconnect with the sacredness of life and living things. Here are some ideas for working with trees.

Do the hippie thing and try physically hugging a tree. Visualize your scattered or negative energy travelling down the tree’s roots to be recycled by Mother Earth. Then you can picture the tree absorbing nourishing energy from Mother Earth up through its roots.

Consider taking it a step further by thanking the tree (mentally or verbally) for helping you to ground your energy. By doing this you not only raise your positive vibrations and the tree’s, you also raise the planet’s energy. It’s a lovely and simple spiritual and healing practice.

If you practice Reiki or some other form of energy healing, offer it to a tree. As living things, they can appreciate a dose of universal life energy too. It also benefits the giver by spreading good karma. If you don’t practice energy healing, then say a prayer, blessing or send positive intentions for the health of both the tree and yourself.

Planting Trees

Plant a tree if you have the opportunity. By doing so you are not only giving life to a tree, you are ensuring the life of the planet. Trees have so many wonderful benefits to the ecosystem. What could be more healing and sacred than that? If you can’t personally plant a tree, consider donating time or funds to a foundation that cares for trees.

A tree planted in someone’s memory is a living tribute that benefits present and future generations, and is perhaps the most fitting memorial gift of all. Your memorial trees planted in National Forests will be honorable monuments and active participants in nature’s plan for decades to come.

Plant a tree in someone’s name – a unique and green gift for events such as birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, new births, anniversaries, or any special occasion. Now you can pay tribute to your friends and loved ones while replanting our nation’s forests.

Next time you pass by a tree, remember its spiritual power and all the wonderful gifts it gives to humanity and the planet. Share its healing energy and enjoy all its beauty!

Hannabis VS The Industry

How are we making a difference in the industry

We are still surprised to see big CBD brands with non-compliant products all of the time, which we know we cannot put a stop to ourselves but instead we plan to be a part of educating the next generation of CBD sellers to do it the right way, and educate the people buying the products so they know who to trust. There isn’t much to being a compliant CBD company, if to mum’s living over 100 miles apart working from their kitchens can keep track of not only Hannabis, but of every single one of our affiliates. Larger CBD companies really have no excuse. There are only a few rules to follow in the UK, so if a company can’t abide by them, what else are they doing under the radar. If providing this education gives someone who already owns a CBD business (and are maybe not aware of all the rules) a chance to put things right then we know what we are doing is right.

Hannabis & We.CAN.nabidiol is here to make waves, educate, advocate & evaluate. We push to have official regulations in place to filter out the people that are selling illegal products or are jumping at the opportunity to get into an extremely fast growing industry. Whilst helping pull out the underdogs that have the true passion & belief behind the plant and hopefully be a We truly believe that all product based companies should be registered with a governing body such as the Cannabis Trades Association, all consumable products should be 3rd party lab tested & confirmed by the governing body they are registered with, as well as having all of their website checked over on a regular basis & their social media platforms. If we do not start to have regulations for absolutely everyone soon, we will no longer have an industry within the UK.

Companies that are not compliant within the industry are slowing destroying it from the inside, by either selling illegal products, lying to their consumers with false information & labels or producing poor quality products. Some people seem to think it’s okay to do something if another company is getting away with it, which again adds to destroying the industry piece by piece. It also gives the industry itself a bad reputation & makes consumers question all of the products, even the ones sold by the trustworthy companies that are doing things right.

One major thing in the industry that has been around from almost the start is not to make any medical claims, which has been ruled by the MHRA but yet there are still big brands making medical claims & going about selling CBD products in an illegal way. This is why We.CAN.nabidiol believe that education is key, education for the sellers & the consumers, if education is giving on both ends then the brands that truly care can correct their mistakes & the ones that don’t will soon fall because the consumers will not want to purchase from a brand that is not trustworthy.

All companies within the industry need to STOP pushing sells & push people to learn. Instead of seeing people as pounds, actually see them as people wanting help & trying to solve an issue they have. That is the only reason anyone is wanting to try CBD, although anyone can use CBD to just promote a healthy lifestyle, most people that are using it or wanting to use it have an underlying issue.

In our hopes to further educate others we also recently launched a podcast called We.Hannabis combining both Hannabis and We.CAN.abidiol as part of a twice-weekly podcast. Every other week landing on the 13th of every month at around 8pm we record a live interactive podcast on our Facebook page where we aim to educate listeners on CBD and Cannabis as well as discussing relevant topics from the media. Doing it live has helped us connect with our audience on a whole new level, answering questions instantly and discussing different points of view on a range of relative topics.

How does Hannabis choose their partners…

When Hannabis look for other companies to parnter with, there are a few things that come into play for us but here are the most important things.

At Hannabis we aim to be as eco-friendly as possibly & recycle as much as we can, we are not perfect & we do not expect our company partners to be perfect but we like to see some kind of effort to be made & always looking for ways to improve.

Another massive thing we look for is compliance, even though there are some big named brands out there, a few of them are still selling illegal products, so we like to take a closer look the products that are offered & make sure they fit our honest, reputable brand.

We love to offer products that are different to the ones we already have, bringing new things to our consumers all of the time. We also do not like to offer any conflicting products as we feel that it would confuse our consumers as to which is the better product as we are suppose to be providing them with the top quality that we can.

As a company we advocate for education & always put this as the most important thing for our consume, rather than their sale. So when we see another company with that same kind of passion, it is generally a match made in heaven.

Another thing we love to do is partner with our affiliates & be able to offer their services, or bespoke handmade products on our website. We currently have Full Spectrum CBD Soap, Bespoke Hemp Teas & Hemp Recipes, all provided by some of our amazing affiliates.

Hannabis Affiliates

What does the Hannabis Affilaites team have to offer?

 

Affiliates partnered with Hannabis have become like family, many of which have been growing with us since the very beginning and we often find ourselves creating additional free content based on what they need support in through-out  both their businesses and day-to-day lives. Every member receives access to extensive training, 24 hour support from each other via an online chatgroup, 1-to-1 support from their uplines, our regional managers and ourselves. There is no end of support through Hannabis proving increasingly helpful to those who suffer from chronic illnesses, who often find themselves stuck at home unable to do much or reach out to many people and other mum’s who are trying to make an extra income around young children. The training and support we provide aims to help them grow their own businesses and dispel the misconceptions about cannabinoids in order to change the discourse surrounding the cannabis industry. Hannabis inspires individuals to follow their own dreams, and have encouraged some of the affiliates to make their own products by teaching them how and supporting them through the whole process.

As our affiliate program has expanded over the months we’ve come to realise, like many others in the industry, that some of those entering the industry don’t always have much knowledge around Cannabis, CBD and the benefits of cannabinoids. If we are having newbies join us daily with little to no knowledge of CBD, imagine how many others have joined the industry with absolutely no clue. It is because of this we started We.CAN.nabidiol as a sister company to Hannabis where we focus on creating a solely educational platform. While we already share a lot of our knowledge with our Hannabis audience we’re keen to have We.CAN.nabidiol and all of the educational content we’ve put together under its own umbrella, we didn’t want it to be seen like a marketing tactic for Hannabis but instead its own stand-alone platform. Having had some time to witness the massive growth within the industry in such a short amount of time, we believe that the only way this industry is going to expand in a safe and sustainable way, is by educating as many people as we can about CBD and Cannabis as a whole.

“Being a Hannabis affiliate means being part of a family. There is always support when you need it and the education and training are exceptional. There are no targets or pressure, just encouragement and help to be the best version of yourself you can be. The company motto, family and health first, makes it stand out from any other company.” – Sally Downing

“Love being apart of Hannabis everyone is lovely such a supportive team to be with, both Hannah and Nicole are amazing they have put so much time and effort into everything they do for us, when it comes to trainning, products and there customers and everything else behind the scenes. hannah is always there to guide us and im so happy I have joined amazing company. I’ve been also trying the shampoo bar and it’s literally something I have never came across before it’s outstanding something I now will be using constantly, love the company, products and everything thing about Hannabis, I look forward to a long happy journey with everyone.” – Lynsey Morris

“Love being part of the Affiliate Team at Hannabis Ltd. A knowledgeable Team led by Hannah & Nicole offering friendly & supportive guidance and training with your business, not just at the start but ongoing. You get a fantastic network of other affiliates who support one another too.” – Sharon Emanuel

“As an affiliate of Hannabis I’ve only been apart of the team a few weeks but I’m absolutely loving it, get to run my own online business theirs no pushyness from above as such but we are all equal and made to feel it! no targets no cold sales.
For me this has been really good I’m a mum of 3 wonderful kids being 5yrs, 3yrs and 2yrs old so being apart of this company is amazing because I work it around me and my life so I still get ever moment I can watching my kids grow up I couldn’t ask for much more its helping with my confidence which feels amazing to be honest I can’t wait for what’s ahead thank you Hannabis” – Rabbiya Sadiq

Hannabis… Who are they?

How did Hannabis begin?

In January 2018, Hannabis began as from my (Hannah Wenn) passion to educate others on the benefits of CBD and the versatility of the cannabis plant, whilst still being at home to enjoy and provide for my family. I originally became involved with the CBD industry in January 2018, I’d partnered with multiple companies over 18 months, trying to find the right one for me but after attending the first HEMP & CBD Expo in March 2019, with some coaxing from my soon to be business partner (unbeknown to us at the time) I decided that if I wanted something done right then I should just do it myself. Hannabis became officially ‘born’ in January 2019 when I registered Hannabis as an official company and no longer just a blog. Back then Hannabis started with just 4 handmade scented lip balms.

In a short amount of time it became clear that two minds would be better than one and I teamed up with graphic designer Nicole Gore to push Hannabis to its full potential. We instantly began planning to launch our own range of CBD products which released in June 2019, with at least one new product release every month since. In the months that followed Hannabis quickly grew into a free affiliate programme open to anyone and everyone interested in starting their own CBD business from home. A couple of month’s had passed and as Hannabis began to receive more feedback we added more products. To include an original clothing range inspired by the CBD and Cannabis industry, designed by us, a number of self-development courses, spiritual items and a growing number bespoke handmade CBD cosmetic products – including the UKs first CBD shampoo bar with the hopes to encourage customers to reduce their plastic waste and become more consciously aware of their consumer impact.

 
What does Hannabis stand up for?


The Hannabis branding was born from our very own personalities, we’re everyday mum’s of two toddlers each, balancing family, business and being absolute queens in our own right. We created our crystal crown wearing queen as symbol of women empowerment amongst what we have found to be a very male dominant industry, it quickly became clear that this very niche style of branding was going to make us stand out from the crowd. Our ethos is inclusively about being one; with ourselves, with each other and with the world that surrounds us. We protect the lives we have been given and the world we live in by making everything as eco-friendly & recycling everything possible. Being a part of Hannabis means supporting, uplifting and empowering one another to be happy, love ourselves and enjoy life!

All in all, Hannabis is a truly unique company within the industry, our message is different to many others and our transparency has allowed both our affiliates and customers to feel at ease with the products we offer and the information we provide. Our branding allows us to stand out from the crowd and reach people that might not have previously thought about joining the industry or even trying CBD before. We do what we can to support the Cannabis Activists as much as we do anyone else, and we’re constantly finding new and innovative ways to help them reach new audiences and aid them in spreading their own important messages. Hannabis is about aiding everyone in the industry, from seed to sale, so that we can lift the entire industry together and not just leverage the parts of it that we know would make us more profit. We think it is for this reason Hannabis was recently nominated for the GHP Medical Cannabis Award 2019 which we are awaiting to hear the results from.

 

 

ABC – CBD

A: Anandamide

Anandamide, also known as ‘the bliss molecule’ is one of the two main endocannabinoids that our bodies produce, the other being 2-arachidonoyl glycerol.
Levels of anandamide increase naturally when we exercise, and it’s thought to be responsible for the rewarding feeling that exercise promotes, like the “runner’s high”.
Anandamide also plays a role in memory and motivation and helps to reduce our sensitivity to pain.
Anandamide breaks down quite quickly, and low levels of Anandamide are shown to correlate with pain and mental health issues.
CBD can help to maintain high levels of anandamide by inhibiting the enzyme that breaks it down so it stays active for longer.
This is the main reason why CBD is showing such positive results across physical and mental health conditions.

B: Bioavailability

Bioavailabilty, is the amount of an ingredient, that makes it into your bloodstream.
If something is injected directly into your bloodstream, you are going to receive 100% of that ingredient. This is in no way advised when using CBD.
If you swallow an ingredient (oral), in most cases it will have to pass through the liver first. The way the liver processes the ingredient, means that by the time it makes it into your bloodstream, the bioavailability has been greatly reduced.
Using a tincture under the tongue (sublingual) provides a quicker way of getting the ingredient into your bloodstream than swallowing tablets as it is absorbed through the mucosal membrane. This method is very popular with CBD users.
Combustion (inhalation) is the most effective way of increasing the bioavailability of an ingredient. Vaping is also very popular with CBD users, because it provides instant relief, but the effects don’t last as long. Results will also vary greatly depending on how the person inhales, the deeper the inhalation, the better the result.
Topically applying ingredients (creams/oils) has a much lower bioavailabilty, but is good if you want to target a specific area, e.g your knees.

C: Cannabichromene (CBC)

CBC was once the 2nd highest cannabinoid found in tropical cannabis strains, but modern breeding has changed this.
CBC works differently than other cannabinoids in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Unlike most other cannabinoids it doesn’t activate the receptors in the ECS.
CBC instead interacts with the Vanilloid Receptor 1 (TRPV1) and the Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1 (TRPA1), both of which are linked to pain perception.
When these receptors are activated, they increase the levels of endocannabinoids like Anandamide and 2-AG.
CBC is non psychoactive, however it has been seen to make the psychoactive effects of THC stronger, unlike CBD.
CBC has been studied on it’s own and together with other cannabinoids, it shows many promising therapeutic uses either way.

D: Dabs and Dabbing

Dabs are highly concentrated doses of THC or CBD, that are referred to as a wax or crumble.
Dabbing is the flash vaporization and inhalation of the wax/crumble.
CBD dabbing is noted for having quick therapeutic effects. It will not get you high as CBD does not act on the receptors in the brain.

E: Endocannabinoids

(Endogenous Lipid-Based Retrograde Neurotransmitters)
Endocannabinoids are natural chemicals produced by your body. These chemicals interact with your endocannabinoid system to regulate important body functions.Their purpose is to maintain homeostatis.
Endocannabinoid receptors are special receptors in your body, that endocannabinoids bind to as a way of signaling to the Endocannabinoid system that it needs to react. There are two types of receptors, B1 and CB2
Endocannabinoid enzymes are proteins that your body produces to break down endocannabinoids that have served their purpose in your body.

F: Full Spectrum

Full spectrum means that a product contains all the cannabinoids found in the plant, not just CBD. There are over a hundred different cannabinoids available in each plant.
Full spectrum products are linked to the entourage effect (different cannabinoids working together to increase effectiveness).
With a full spectrum product, you are getting the benefit of more than a hundred different cannabinoids, rather than just CBD.

G: GMO (Genetic Modification)

When purchasing a CBD product, you will want to make sure that it hasn’t been genetically modified.
You want to be looking for products made with organically grown hemp.
Hannabis products are made with organically grown hemp derived from the mountains of Colorado.

H: Hemp

Hemp is a crop grown for its oil, fibre and edible seeds. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into useable fibre.
Commercial items made from hemp fibre include paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastic, and food.
CBD products are made from hemp.
While hemp is in the same family as the cannabis plant, it does not have psychoactive effects, due to its very low THC levels.
Hemp has so many uses and is completely under utilized by modern society.

I: Ignorance

There is an incredible amount of ignorance when it comes to CBD and people need to be educated, on what it is and how it works in our bodies.
The two most common misconceptions are:
It gets you high 
It’s illegal
The CBD industry is not helped by people who make medical claims and advertise products that are illegal in the UK.

J: Jack Herer

Jack Herer was a Cannabis rights pioneer He was born in 1939 and died in 2010. He ran for U.S. President in 1988 and 1992.
He was the author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes first published in 1985.
His book was frequently cited in efforts to decriminalize and legalise marijuana and to expand the use of hemp for industrial use.
He also founded and served as the director of the organization Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP).
He also made this documentary: The Hempire Strikes Back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrJbd9Dy9Vw&feature=share

K: Kush

Kush is a strain of Cannabis indica. The origins of Kush Cannabis are from landrace plants mainly in Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and North-Western India with the name coming from the Hindu Kush mountain range.
Did you know that one of our CBD 2 in 1 E-Liquids is named after this?

L: Lab Tests

The Importance of 3rd Party CBD Lab Testing.
It may not seem like a big deal, but with any product that becomes popular rapidly, it’s easy to get duped by products that lie about what’s included.
By purchasing products that have been lab tested, you can feel secure that your getting what the label tells you.
When looking through a lab test report it’s important to focus on two numbers: CBD content and THC levels.
The cannabinoid potency test, will tell you how much of each cannabinoid is included in the full spectrum product. This is how you know whether or not a product is telling you the truth in saying a certain amount of CBD is included with each dose. On top of knowing how much CBD is included, you’ll see amounts of CBD, CBN, CBG, THC, and more.
With THC levels, you want to ensure that there’s less than 0.2% in a sample.
One of Hannabis’s lab test results is shown below.

M: Medical Claims

Any medical claims about what CBD can do for any illness, are strictly prohibited by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency).
The MHRA has classified CBD as a food supplement. As long as no medical claims are made and it is clearly marketed as a food supplement, then it is legal to possess, buy and sell within the UK.
Anyone advertising CBD products and making medical claims about those products is breaking the law.
No CBD products should be recommended to treat any medical conditions. Personal experience about the benefits can be shared but a disclaimer must be used.
The following disclaimers should be used:
* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration or the MHRA.
* This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

N: Neurotransmitters

Your brain uses chemical messengers known as neurotransmitters and their corresponding receptors, to pass signals between different cells.
Neurotransmitter receptors sit on the surface of neurons and other cells, waiting for the messengers to fire them into action.
Neurotransmitters are essential to your health, and imbalances in them are linked to many diseases and mental disorders.
Because of this a wide variety of prescription drugs (like antidepressants and painkillers) target your different neurotransmitter systems to try and balance them and make you feel better.
It has been proved that, CBD, impacts many different neurotransmitter systems, and studies have shown that it’s strongest effects are on the endocannabinoid and serotonin systems.

O: Oil

CBD Oil, can be used orally or as a topical.
Have you tried the Hannabis Pure Oil?

The oil is derived from hemp that is organically grown in the mountains of Colorado, resulting in a unique, full-spectrum product that contains a host of naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids.

P: Prescription Medication

One of the most common question asked, is if CBD is safe to take with other medications.
Due to the nature of the chemicals found in prescription medications, CBD can interact negatively with some of them.
CBD can reduce or increase the effects of certain prescribed medications by interacting with receptors throughout the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450.
Cytochrome P450 is a group of liver enzymes that are responsible for breaking down drugs and toxins that enter the body. By inhibiting the activity of this enzyme, CBD can temporarily deactivate its activity, which can alter how other compounds are metabolized.
Grapefruit juice interacts with drugs in the same way that CBD does — by inhibiting the cytochrome p450 enzymes. The difference is that grapefruit juice is more commonly referenced on medication labels.
As both grapefruit juice and CBD can inhibit the metabolic process in the same way, logically, any drug or medication that is advised to not be taken with grapefruit juice, should also not be taken with CBD.
For further reference, check out the list of some drugs that can interact with grapefruit juice that’s listed on Drugs.com:

R: Raphael Mechoulam

Raphael Mechoulam was the first scientist in the world to isolate tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
He discovered THC molecule in 1964, a year after he isolated the cannabidiol (CBD).
This launched a scientific revolution based on the study of cannabinoids.which are chemical compounds that occur naturally in the cannabis plant.
Raphael Mechoulam, is now 88 and although retired, still remains dedicated to healing. The esteemed researcher, has promoted the therapeutic benefits of CBD for years.
CBD is the primary non-psychoactive compound found in marijuana and demonstrates a broad range of potential medical applications. It was discovered in 1940 and re-isolated by Raphael Mechoulam in 1963, a year before THC’s discovery.

S: Strains

The term strain refers to the many variations found within plants. It also refers to the new plants that descend from cross bred plants (hybrids).
These plants are either produced by biotechnological methods or through normal breeding.Hemp is a strain of the cannabis sativa plant that is bred for industrial purposes. The high demand for CBD products has led to hemp being bred to create strains that are extremely high in CBD and low in THC.
Only hemp strains that have under 0.2% THC content are certified as legal by the EU.

T: Topicals

Topicals like creams or oils, are great because they can be applied to a particular part of the body. When applied, the CBD will enter the body by penetrating the skin and entering the bloodstream.
People with skin problems, or localised pain, have reported positive benefits from using creams infused with CBD.
CBD massage oils are also very popular and relaxing.
