My mother has been on pain killers for a failed diagnosis of lymphoedema. After the third day of using this topical on her right arm, the affected area, she has gotten rid of the pain killers and started sleeping better after 2 months of no sleep. She couldn't believe it and neither could I. I just ordered the oils and will most definitely post her successes. Truly satisfied with your product and I hope that the oils are exactly what she needs! ? thank you
There’s a growing body of scientific evidence to support the use of topical CBD products to ease pain, inflammation, and the symptoms of arthritis. One study using rats found that topical CBD has “therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.” More scientific research on humans is needed to confirm all of CBD’s benefits, but the initial research into topical use in humans is also promising.
Today, dozens of companies produce CBD in an array of forms. CBD can be inhaled through vape pens, applied in topical salves, ingested in edibles, or swallowed in oil-based tinctures. Oil has become the dominant CBD delivery method for kids with epilepsy, since it is easy to administer and ingest, and there is no shortage of it available for sale online. There are dozens of companies boasting names like Healthy Hemp Oil, Dose of Nature, and Natural Organic Solutions, each of them selling CBD products at prices ranging from trivial to dizzyingly steep. You don’t have to look hard to find them. If you have a PayPal account and $100 to spare, you could have a vial of hemp oil delivered to your doorstep.
FAAH breaks down and removes natural endocannabinoids. CBD stops this breakdown and in turn increases the natural endocannabinoids available to the body. Because endo- cannabinoids have a balancing and healing effect on the body’s numerous systems and functions, CBD’s ability to increase the amount of endocannabinoids available to the body may create a bevy of therapeutic benefits5
All available evidence indicates that long term use of PurCBD+ causes no side effects; however, PurCBD+ has only truly been available for pets for a couple years. The most common reason our customers cite for using CBD is to replace prescription drugs that have a known history of long term side effects. Always consult your veterinarian and use our dosing chart/schedule to coordinate the use of dietary supplements like PurCBD with prescription medications.
Despite the fact that marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, companies like HempMedsPx claim their CBD products are legal in all 50 states. According to a legal opinion written by Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s attorney and submitted to the New Republic, “HempMedsPx’s CBD hemp oil, containing naturally occurring CBD and miniscule amount of THC, is exempted from the definition of marijuana, is not a controlled substance, complies with the Controlled Substances Act, and is legal on the federal level.” The opinion is based in large part on a 2004 court ruling which allowed the importation of hemp food products derived from the mature stalks of cannabis plants.
i honestly didnt expect to feel anything i just wanted to give this product a try since my niece got me into vaping and it works amazing. it helps me relax and relieves the pain in my ankles. i used to take ibuprofen for my ankles but now i dont need to. thanks to cathy i just order 2 more flavors sugar cookie and colombian coffee. im going to order more for myself and my niece.
If you lean towards fruity flavors in your vape I highly recommend the honeydew melon. It reminds me of the Naked 100 Melon ejuice, but better! I also got the watermelon but haven’t tried it yet. Thanks for making these smaller bottles so us newbies can test them out before investing a lot of money into it. I just got mine yesterday so I don’t know that I’m feeling the effects yet, but I’ll probably go up to a higher potency when I’m done with these!
On the federal level, several bills currently before Congress seek to change the way the government treats CBD. One such bill, the Compassionate Access Act, would exclude CBD from the classification of “marijuana” and remove both from the DEA’s list of Schedule I controlled substances. Rescheduling CBD in such a way would make research and cultivation of CBD much easier.
The human body also produces cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids, in a bodily system known as the endocannabinoid system (or ECS). The ECS promotes homeostasis by regulating a wide range of functions, including motor skills, mood, appetite, and sleep. As we age, our ECS produces fewer endocannabinoids; they may also decrease due to physical injury or disease. Replenishing depleted endocannabinoids with phytocannabinoids like CBD can help restore balance to the body.
“I just wanted to thank you for making such a wonderful product. My 16-year-old Shih Tzu has only been using the product for a week and I already see an amazing improvement. She is experiencing early stages of dementia and PTSD from being attacked and blinded by another dog a year ago. She also has IVDD related pain. We tried anti-anxiety meds, anti-depressants, pain meds which all gave her terrible side effects. CBD has helped her mood, anxiety, and sleep patterns tremendously. She’s bright, alert, and happier than she has been in a long time. I can’t thank you enough!” Pandie
Though a CBD latte might not do much for you — at least not beyond what caffeine and the placebo effect combined can do, which isn’t nothing — it’s also probably harmless in most cases, says Carson, and may even have positive benefits we aren’t yet aware of. “I suspect there’s probably some antioxidant benefit to CBD like there is with coffee,” says Carson. “There’s tons of good things in coffee that we still don’t fully understand, and I think the marijuana plant is much the same way.”
Hemp and Marijuana come form the same plant family, but are completely different in function, cultivation and application. Marijuana generally has a high level of THC (a psychoactive compound that makes you feel “high”) and is used for medicinal or recreational purpose. Hemp contains a negligible amount of THC (but is high in CBD) and is used in dietary supplements, skin products, clothing and paper.
All of this makes CBD remarkably difficult for even the most dedicated health care providers to manage safely. Dr. Kelly Knupp, an associate professor of pediatrics and neurology at the University of Colorado, and the director of the Dravet Syndrome program at Children’s Hospital Colorado, said families of epileptic children have tried to bring CBD oils to the hospital for testing. “They’re just concerned that they don’t know exactly who’s growing [the hemp],” Knupp said. “They know it’s not being regulated.” But because CBD is a Schedule I controlled substance, high-tech, regulated laboratories, like those at the University of Colorado, can’t accept, store, or test CBD oils, lest they risk prosecution. “There is no such lab that can take that product,” Knupp said, which leaves any testing up to the unregulated testing centers that cater to the cannabis industry.
Generally speaking, most marijuana producers and sellers (especially on the black market) don’t test for contaminants (metals, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually more a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC, CBD and other cannabinoid content of the final oil always vary greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays.
It’s important that you are applying the CBD topical to areas of the skin that are unaffected by other skin-care products. Making sure that you are applying your topicals to clean, product-free skin ensures that your skin is effectively absorbing the oil in its entirety. Mixing CBD oil with other products will only dilute the effects and reduce its effectiveness.

Effective in January 2017, the DEA (which typically refers to marijuana by the plant’s scientific species name, Cannabis sativa, or the Reefer Madness-era spelling “marihuana”) made a rule stating its marijuana scheduling includes “marihuana extract.” In the rule, the agency defined “marihuana extract” as an “extract containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis”—which would include CBD.
Hemp-derived CBD definitely had an effect on me. At Caffeine Underground, I ordered a CBD oat milk latte—smooth and delicious with no trace of CBD flavor—and toast made with CBD-infused jam. After two hours plugging away on my laptop with full concentration, I was still so completely blissed out, the walk back to the train in 30-degree weather felt like it took no time at all.

In early June, I met with Penny Pennington Howard, a mother of three, who lives in Carrollton, Texas, about 25 minutes outside of Dallas. Posted in the glass of her front door are two signs you can’t quite make out from the sidewalk: one asking visitors not to smoke, as oxygen treatments are in use; the other a yellow diamond informing guests this is the home of a special needs child. Penny welcomed me inside, out of the glare of the sun, and led me through her living room into her kitchen, where her kids were gathered for lunch. Seth, then eight months old, was plucking cereal off the tray of his highchair, while Lily, seven, was darting back and forth between the countertop and table. Harper, a blond five-year-old with hot pink toenails, was reclining in her “tomato chair,” a molded plastic seat with straps to help keep her steady.
Fortunately for cannabis-curious pet-owners, the spread of legalization across the country is giving doctors enough resources (nerve) to take research into their own hands. In Colorado, Dr. Stephanie McGrath, a neurologist and assistant professor at Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, has completed two clinical studies since 2016 on the effects of cannabidiol in dogs with osteoarthritis or epilepsy. In January, the American Kennel Club granted Dr. McGrath $350,000 for her to begin a three-year crossover study of CBD for epilepsy in dogs. Legislation has been proposed in New York and California that would establish guidelines and allow veterinarians to legally discuss the use of cannabis products with their clients.

I had a dog with lymphoma that was extremely aggressive…she was 12 when she was diagnosed, but was an active breed, and it too, started in her mammary glands, and I noticed it very early. She was extremely active/athletic – we decided due to her age, we gave her an amazing life, she was the dog of a lifetime and was just amazing (we rescued her a year old from a pet rescue that was going out of business – whatever wasn’t adopted was going to whatever shelters in the state that had room – they were no kill – the others that they were sending to weren’t all no kill….she was the only dog left….she was with another couple, they decided not to get her and handed my husband the leash. We were discussing it – it was 5 minutes before they were closing the doors for the last time, and she laid down at his feet. I told him it was up to him, but if he wasn’t going to do it, he had to take her in bc I simply couldn’t do it. He said “ok then, tell her bye bc we don’t know what will happen”…he reached for the door, swung it open and yelled “she’s coming with us and no one else!”), anyhow (sorry, lol), we decided not to treat the cancer and make her more sick, put off the inevitable….but to treat her symptoms and keep her comfortable. We started with a round of antibiotics while she was still strong (you never would’ve known anything was going on. I found 2 bilateral small mammary lumps when she was completely stretched on her back and I was rubbing her belly – she was all muscle – not a single ounce of fat – so they were very noticeable to me), as a prophylactic treatment for 2 weeks, then high dose steroids for 2 weeks (which can lower the white blood cell count and make them prone to infection, hence the antibiotics prior), then maintenance steroids to slow the growth. She remain EXTREMELY active through it all. About 2 months later, I guess she kinda hit a rough patch and everything grew…all of her mammary glands became huge to where when she tried to jump on things, to stomach was to tight and stretched, she was in pain and would miss, so she would really eye it, rock back and forth and put a lot of effort if she wasn’t patient enough for us to help her. Our vet put her on Gabapentin and increased the steroids, which slowed everything and helped her pain. Then her lymphnodes completely took off…under her front legs, around her neck…but she still remain active, eating and no change in pain, as if nothing was wrong. We were able to keep her comfortable a total of 5 months until it began wearing on her, then she began having cardiac changes and distancing herself from us for 3 days (both together, I’m a paramedic, I noticed she was staying into congestive heart failure), so we took her to end her pain. The point of all of this, and I’m sorry it took so long to get there….is that I wish that there was as much emphasis on the use of CBD for our terminal pets and the safety and efficacy of it just a year and a half ago as there is now. I was crying the other day talking to my husband about this bc I feel that it, and we could’ve helped her be so much more comfortable…I feel I failed her. In my opinion, with you being in the same situation…I was 1,000% use this on your baby!!! If I had the information back then, i wouldn’t have given it a second thought!!! Best of luck to you!! Sorry this was so long! Prayers for you and your pup!!
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services suggests that consumers should prioritize eating a variety of nutritious foods over taking dietary supplements. No dietary supplement should take the place of a healthful diet. That being said, the agency does allow that some supplements can help support overall health and provide people with the nutrients they need. For instance, vitamin D and calcium help strengthen bones and omega-3 fatty acids may help some who have heart disease.
ANSWER: The full spectrum of cannabinoids in Hammer Hemp—headed up by cannabidiol (CBD)—influences and activates the CB2 receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. Research has shown that activation of these receptors greatly assists in significantly reducing aches and pain. CBD also influences a number of non-cannabinoid receptor systems in the brain, including opioid receptors, which play a role in pain regulation. It is extremely important to note that, unlike opioid drugs, the use of CBD does not have any dangerous dependence and/or tolerance buildup issues associated with it. Lastly, Hammer Hemp contains a broad spectrum of terpenes, organic compounds found in many plants that contribute to the color, scent, and flavor of the plant. All of these terpenes have properties that assist in reducing aches and pains. The primary terpene found in Hammer Hemp is known as Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP), which is the only terpene known to interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (the CB2 receptors) in producing pain-alleviating effects.
Part of the mystery around cannabis and animals is because of the fact cannabis is still federally illegal, so there hasn’t been funding or legal access to cannabis for potential projects. Without that research, the American Veterinary Medical Association can’t state that vets are allowed to even discuss cannabis as a possible recommended medication without risking their medical license. That being said, they released a document to members in February of this year titled “Cannabis: What Veterinarians Need to Know” to help doctors “advise clients and treat patients who may have been exposed to marijuana.”
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis and it’s this compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are just that … the beneficial CBD without the THC. And they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. In short, your dog won’t get “high” from CBD oil … he’ll get the relaxation without the intoxication.

Unfortunately, because this is a supplement we're not allowed to make medical claims regarding its use as a treatment or cure. However, this is the exact reason we began using this product on our own pets. (Our founding pets were diagnosed with cancer; one was 16 and the other was 8.) We used phytocannabinoidas palliative care for appetite and pain management.
Another field in which CBD is creating a buzz is in the area of mood disorders like anxiety and depression. Both conditions have been treated with a variety of medications, courtesy of Big Pharma, that have had varying levels of success. Again, the long list of side effects can be off-putting to someone who just wants to get through the day without the sweaty tension of anxiety or the gray haze of depression.
ANSWER: While they are derived from the same plant, they are two very different products that have completely different applications. Hemp Oil liquid that you find at retail outlets like health food stores is in the same category as flax seed oil, olive oil, and other plant-derived oils. It is a source of omega-3, 6, 9 fatty acids, and is primarily used in salad dressings or in smoothies to boost one’s intake of these healthy fats. It can also be taken in a softgel as a supplement. These products are made from the seeds of the hemp plant, which contains very little of the beneficial CBD content. Hammer Hemp is all CBD oil—it is CBD Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil—and is produced comes from the flowers and leaves of the plant. The phytocannabinoids in Hammer Hemp supply powerful recovery-enhancing benefits—helping alleviate soreness and pain, supporting the immune system, and promoting better-quality sleep.
First, let’s look at the differences between the plants that make CBD oil. To start with, the two plants look physically different. This is due to the different reasons that both of them are grown. Cannabis, grown for its flowering buds for reasons of smoking or THC extraction, are generally short and wide. Hemp, on the other hand, is tall and narrow as it is not grown for its buds. Hemp is low in THC and is often grown for a variety of purposes including the manufacture of materials.
It only exists because founder Devin Jamroz injured himself in a snowboarding accident and began experimenting with cannabinoid therapies to replace the pharmaceuticals he was prescribed. It was his morning routine of a tincture and cup of coffee that inspired the idea to infuse coffee beans, and after years of perfecting the technique, it is now available through mail order nationwide.
Remember: Do not ingest CBD topicals. They should be used externally only. If your skin symptoms have appeared suddenly or if they are very strong and painful, you should first consult your physician before using any supplements or salves. Don't use salves on open, bleeding wounds. Also, do not apply CBD topicals if you are pregnant, lactating, or suffering from a serious illness.
Some manufacturers ship CBD products nationally, an illegal action which the FDA has not enforced in 2018, with CBD remaining as the subject of an FDA investigational new drug evaluation and is not considered legal as a dietary supplement or food ingredient as of November 2018. CBD is openly sold in head shops and health food stores in some states where such sales have not been explicitly legalized.
I used it on my mother's feet (she's 90). She is great for testing anything because she's in an incredible amount of pain and absolutely NOTHING works for her. Two hours after I applied it, she came into my room and said, "I can't believe that cream actually worked. I still don't have any pain in my toes and the bottom of my feet. It worked so well, I forgot about the pain after you put it on..." Needless to say, she looks forward to an application every evening.
ANSWER: We offer two potencies/strengths of Hammer Hemp in softgels: 10 mg and 25 mg of Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil. We offer two potencies/strengths of Hammer Hemp in tincture form: 250 mg and 750 mg. One dropper (1 ml) of the 250 mg tincture supplies 8.33 mg of Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil. One dropper (1 ml) of the 750 mg tincture supplies 25 mg of Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil.
CBD interacts with the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. First discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response. Like an acrobat on a highwire, as the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system “corrects” by mediating our body’s reaction to keep us level.
