Why Are People Turning to CBD For Help with Their Health?

CBD is just one of the 104 chemical compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike other compounds of the plant, CBD is non-intoxicating and non-hallucinogenic. It is believed to have many therapeutic benefits that promote health and wellness in the body and mind.

CBD products have no intoxicating effects on the mind. It does not cause a high or euphoric feeling making it safe to use on a regular basis. The therapeutic effects of CBD have been studied by researchers and have been corroborated by consumers who swear that it helps them with everything from chronic pain to insomnia and anxiety.

There is an uptrend to using CBD nowadays, and people are making the CBD choice. The following are just some of the reasons why people are turning to CBD for help with their health.

1. CBD Provides Relief from Chronic Pain and Inflammation

Fibromyalgia is a condition wherein there is widespread muscle pain. Along with the pain are fatigue, memory, and mood issues. People who use CBD find that they get massive relief from fibromyalgia. CBD also helps keep the nervous system from further degeneration.

Chronic inflammation is bad for the body, and it can promote the development of more serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and type 1 diabetes. CBD decreases inflammation and can be seen as giving the body protection against serious illnesses.

2. CBD is seen as an alternative to Ibuprofen

People who do not use CBD Oil use NSAIDs for their pain management. NSAIDs are also called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and are available without a prescription. Examples of NSAIDs are Ibuprofen and naproxen sodium. However, NSAIDs have side effects. Regular use of NSAIDs can damage the kidneys and can cause heart attacks and strokes.

CBD has the same effects as NSAIDs in relieving pain symptoms but without the negative side effects.

3. CBD is an effective cure against epilepsy

Some people have drug-resistant epilepsy, and CBD is seen as an alternative medication that can help control seizures. In 2018, a drug, Epidiolex, was prescribed to people who are suffering from two particular types of epilepsy called Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) and Dravet Syndrome (DS). These two types of epilepsy don’t respond well to anti-seizure medications, but CBD has been proven to help control it.

4. CBD helps treat mental and behavioral disorders

Anxiety and other neuropsychiatric conditions is a growing health problem worldwide. Many health professionals will advise against the use of cannabis to treat mood and mental disorders because it will only exacerbate it. However, CBD has non-psychoactive properties and is non-hallucinogenic, making it safe to use. CBD can be used to treat a lot of mood and behavioral disorders such as Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), General anxiety disorder, Panic disorder, Social anxiety disorder, Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and Substance-abuse disorders.

5. CBD can help treat heart ailments

Heart disease is a global problem and is one of the main causes of death. Having a healthy lifestyle, which includes proper diet and adequate exercise, can help stave off this disease. CBD is also an effective therapy against heart disease, according to studies. CBD has preventive factors against the buildup of oxidative stress and inflammation, which is the main cause of heart diseases.

In a study, a group of participants was given a placebo while the other group was administered with cannabidiol. The cannabidiol group had significantly lower blood pressure compared to the placebo group prompting researchers to conclude that CBD’s stress-fighting features are effective.

6. CBD helps with skin conditions

The beauty world has embraced CBD and has infused it in various creams, serums, and gels to help promote healthy skin. CBD is known to treat acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles due to its antioxidative properties. CBD also helps in treating serious skin conditions such as eczema. CBD regulates oil production on the skin by lowering the production of sebum.

7. CBD can help people with withdrawal symptoms

People who have been addicted to a substance will have withdrawal symptoms, which include nausea, pain, insomnia, and mood disorders. People who have opioid, cocaine, and other psychostimulant addictions will find that using CBD can vastly improve their recovery.

Smokers who smoke regular nicotine are also smoking less when they use inhalers with CBD.

Final Thoughts

CBD is a safe and natural way to heal many ailments, and its popularity has a reason: it does work. Unlike other medications, CBD is said to have fewer side effects. CBD has many therapeutic benefits, and more research should be done to exploit the many features and benefits of CBD further so people can use this substance not only for recreational but also for medicinal use.

Dying for a better life: South Koreans fake their funerals for life lessons

SEOUL (Reuters) – A South Korean service is offering free funerals – but only to the living.

More than 25,000 people have participated in mass “living funeral” services at Hyowon Healing Center since it opened in 2012, hoping to improve their lives by simulating their deaths.

“Once you become conscious of death, and experience it, you undertake a new approach to life,” said 75-year-old Cho Jae-hee, who participated in a recent living funeral as part of a “dying well” program offered by her senior welfare center.

Dozens took part in the event, from teenagers to retirees, donning shrouds, taking funeral portraits, penning their last testaments, and lying in a closed coffin for around 10 minutes.

University student Choi Jin-kyu said his time in the coffin helped him realize that too often, he viewed others as competitors.

“When I was in the coffin, I wondered what use that is,” said the 28-year-old, adding that he plans to start his own business after graduation rather than attempting to enter a highly-competitive job market.

South Korea ranks 33 out of 40 countries surveyed in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Better Life Index. Many younger South Koreans have high hopes for education and employment, which have been dashed by a cooling economy and rising joblessness.

“It is important to learn and prepare for death even at a young age,” said Professor Yu Eun-sil, a doctor at Asan Medical Center’s pathology department, who has written a book about death.

In 2016, South Korea’s suicide rate was 20.2 per 100,000 residents, almost double the global average of 10.53, according to the World Health Organization.

Funeral company Hyowon began offering the living funerals to help people appreciate their lives, and seek forgiveness and reconciliation with family and friends, said Jeong Yong-mun, who heads the healing center.

Jeong said he is heartened when people reconcile at a relative’s funeral, but is saddened they wait that long.

“We don’t have forever,” he said. “That’s why I think this experience is so important – we can apologize and reconcile sooner and live the rest of our lives happily.”

Occasionally he has dissuaded those contemplating suicide.

“I picked out those people who have asked themselves whether … they can actually commit suicide, and I reversed their decision,” Jeong said.

The message of personal value resounded with Choi.

“I want to let people know that they matter, and that someone else would be so sad if they were gone,” he said, wiping away tears. “Happiness is in the present.”

Police ordered to pull their weight as Indonesia fights obesity

MOJOKERTO, Indonesia (Reuters) – An Indonesian province has put 50 overweight police on a crash program of aerobics, swimming and jogging, telling them they’d better shape up for the job.

The officers in East Java are being closely monitored on the two-week program and also get guidance from nutritionists and medical experts, said spokesman Frans Barung Mangera.

“We think all the selected personnel don’t have the ideal body weight,” said Mangera.

The police force had determined that the ideal weight for an officer in kilograms should be their height (in centimeters) minus 110, Mangera said.

Indonesia has seen a spike in obesity in recent years and the World Health Organization in 2016 estimated that at least 28 percent of Indonesia’s 250 million people were overweight.

A 2018 health survey of 300,000 families concluded that about one in five adults was obese, media said. A sedentary lifestyle as well as a diet often rich in oil and sugar have been blamed.

During one part of the training, the police punch their fists in the air and twist their waists to music blasted from loudspeakers.

“Being overweight makes us less agile when we are on duty and we often fall sick,” said officer Iwan Sutanto. He claimed to feel healthier after losing 3.5 kg (7.72 lb).

Police spokesman Mangera said the program was likely to be extended to the entire province of East Java.

“Body shape determines whether the officer is fit to serve the public,” said Mangera.

Parents Who Belittle Their Children May Be Raising Bullies

MONDAY, July 22, 2019 — It’s a vicious cycle: Teens who are belittled and demeaned by their parents are more likely to be bullied and to bully others, a new study suggests.

“Inappropriate interpersonal responses appear to spread from parents to children, where they spawn peer difficulties,” said study co-author Brett Laursen, a professor of psychology at Florida Atlantic University.

“Specifically, derisive parenting precipitates a cycle of negative affect and anger between parents and adolescents, which ultimately leads to greater adolescent bullying and victimization,” he explained in a university news release.

“Our study is important because it provides a more complete understanding of how parents’ belittling and critical interactions with adolescents thwart their ability to maintain positive relationships with peers,” Laursen said.

He and his colleagues followed more than 1,400 teens from ages 13 to 15 and found that derisive parenting can cause significant harm.

Derisive parents use criticism, sarcasm, put-downs and hostility when dealing with their children, and they rely on emotional and physical coercion to get their children to do what they want, the researchers explained.

They found that teens who are subjected to derisive parenting can develop dysregulated anger, often a sign of difficulty controlling emotions. This type of anger presents itself in negative emotions, hostility, and verbal and physical aggression.

Dysregulated anger puts teens at greater risk for bullying and for becoming bully-victims (bullies who also are victimized by other bullies), the study said.

Previous research found that bully-victims are at high risk for poor mental health, behavioral problems and suicidal thoughts, according to the study authors.

“Implications from our study are far-reaching: Practitioners and parents should be informed of the potential long-term costs of sometimes seemingly harmless parenting behaviors such as belittlement and sarcasm,” said study senior author Daniel Dickson, from the department of psychology at Concordia University in Montreal.

“Parents must be reminded of their influence on adolescents’ emotions and should take steps to ensure that adolescents do not feel ridiculed at home,” Dickson said.

The study was published recently in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence.

AHA News: Who’s Helping Smokers Quit? Probably Not Their Heart Doctor

FRIDAY, June 28, 2019 (American Heart Association News) — Smoking doesn’t just wreck the lungs. It’s a leading cause of heart disease and stroke, and a new study says most cardiologists aren’t doing enough to help patients snuff out their cigarettes.

“We know that smoking is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and that cessation leads to decreases in cardiovascular disease and the risk of death,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Mayank Sardana, a cardiac electrophysiology fellow at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine. “But only a minority of smokers are receiving counseling in cardiology clinics and assistance in trying to quit.”

Only 1 in 3, in fact. The study analyzed data collected between 2013 and 2016 from 348 cardiology practices associated with the National Cardiovascular Data Registry, which documents treatment provided to patients. Of more than 328,000 patients classified as smokers, only 34% received smoking cessation assistance, according to the study published Friday in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

That assistance, Sardana said, ranges from assessing a smokers’ readiness to stop and counseling them about the health benefits of doing so to recommending cessation programs and prescribing nicotine patches and drugs to help them quit.

The study did not examine reasons for the low rate, but Sardana suggested two possible factors: lack of time during a doctor visit and the assumption the primary care provider, not the cardiologist, should take the lead in discouraging smoking.

“We need to work with cardiologists and primary care providers to understand the problem and come up with a practical solution,” Sardana said.

The JAHA study follows a groundbreaking report last December by the American College of Cardiology urging health care providers to take a bigger role in promoting smoking cessation and setting out a detailed pathway for cardiologists to address the issue with patients.

Dr. Nancy Rigotti, a professor of medicine and internist at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital who served as vice chair of the group that wrote the ACC report, said every doctor taking care of smokers should do whatever possible to help them quit. She hopes the new study will bring more urgency to the issue and draw attention to the ACC recommendations.

“My experience has been that for cardiologists, tobacco has sort of been the forgotten risk factor,” said Rigotti, who directs the hospital’s Tobacco Research and Treatment Center.

“They’re aggressive about taking care of high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and we have medicines that are very effective for that,” she said. “But with smoking cessation it’s more of a chronic problem that takes a long time to work. It’s not a simple fix.”

The timing of a visit to the cardiologist can make a big difference, Rigotti said. “Someone who has newly diagnosed heart disease or just had a heart attack may be scared and willing to make behavioral changes that maybe they didn’t think they needed to do before.”

Rigotti said many smokers she has counseled associate smoking more with lung cancer than cardiovascular disease. But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking wreaks cardiovascular consequences ranging from damaged arteries and lower levels of “good” cholesterol to sticky blood that’s more prone to clotting.

Smokers, the American Heart Association reports, are two to four times more likely to have a stroke than nonsmokers or those who quit more than a decade ago. And almost a third of deaths from coronary heart disease are caused by smoking and secondhand smoke, according to the AHA.

The good news for all doctors to emphasize, Rigotti said, is that “if you quit smoking you reverse the extra risk relatively rapidly.

“It’s never too early to quit,” she said. “But it’s never too late to quit.”

5 Ways Men Can Take Charge of Their Health

SUNDAY, June 23, 2019 — Many men need to do a better job of looking after their health, and it only takes a few simple steps, experts say.

“It’s common for men to avoid going to the doctor until there’s a serious health concern,” said Dr. James Heckman, a primary care physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. “Staying healthy may just be a matter of changing habits.”

Those habits start with regular doctor visits.

“Seeing your doctor regularly means that you have a baseline for important screenings,” Heckman said in a medical center news release. “This includes everything from cholesterol to cancer screenings and osteoporosis.”

Then, make sure you’re eating right. A diet low in fat and high in fruits and vegetables can help lower the risk of certain cancers, including prostate cancer.

“For good prostate health, eat your fruits and veggies,” Dr. Aria Olumi, chief of urologic surgery at Beth Israel, said in the news release.

Don’t smoke. Along with harming your heart and lungs, smoking is linked with roughly half of all bladder cancers.

“Bladder cancer risk factors like age, gender, race and family history can’t be controlled,” Olumi said. “But quitting smoking can definitely lower your risk.”

Get enough sleep. That means at least seven hours a night.

And remember that mental health is connected to physical health. Protect it. Mental illness affects both men and women, but men may be less likely to talk about their feelings and get help.

“Mental health symptoms often appear to be physical issues — like a racing heart, tightening chest, ongoing headaches or digestive issues,” Heckman said. “Talking to a professional or a loved one about stress or other challenges can be very helpful.”

Carl Jones and Brian Ash Chat About Their New Show ‘Sugar & Toys’

Whatever happened to the poorly animated Saturday morning TV shows of the ‘80s and ‘90s?  An irreverent new series called Sugar & Toys puts a mad spin on those toons, offering timely culture parodies, commercial spoofs and PSAs, and even satirical live-action bits. The 10 x 30-minute series, which is created by Carl Jones and Brain Ash of Black Dynamite and The Boondocks fame will debut this month on Fuse TV. Bookended by segments featuring rapper/actor Kyle (The After Party), Sugar & Toys promises to bring a lot of timely absurdist humor to the toon table.

Carl Jones, who is also exec producer on the new Adult Swim show Lazor Wulf, says the origins of the show go back years ago, when he and a network executive where talking about Saturday morning cartoons. “We were wondering what happened to those old cartoons which disappeared because people became more aware of the problem of childhood obesity,” he says. “The only reason these cartoons existed was because these big companies wanted to sell their sugar-coated cereals and candies and toys to children on TV. Even the toys they sold were toxic. So Brian and I started kicking around this idea of doing a parody cartoon block which had the aesthetics of the cartoons from the ’80s and ’90s, but with an adult audience in mind.”

Ash says he and Jones have always been driven to shows that serve up hard-hitting humor and social commentary. “Mad Magazine was a big influence on us,” he notes. “It’s the kind of humor that if you get all the cultural references, you get rewarded. But even if you’re young and don’t get them all, you discover a lot of cool things about culture via these parodies.

Sugar & Toys

Sugar & Toys

Fast, Furious and Funny

Jones and Ash point out that because the way animation is consumed online these days, it’s easier to produce and deliver fast-moving byte-sized parodies. “We can jump all over the map,” says Jones. “We also had this fun notion of mixing in live-action segments with the cartoon parts, so we can explore all kinds of possibilities. We have spoofs of commercials and have these quick bits, just like Chappelle’s Show. We’re also lucky to have segments featuring Kyle, directed by Nich Goossen.”

While having so many different moving parts, Sugar & Toys has been a very fast-and-furious production. The team only began work on the series over a year ago. “In the beginning, we thought we were only doing a pilot,” recalls Ash. “But then we got the greenlight for six episodes, which then got extended to ten. Fuse got behind our show in a big way and let us go to town. We hit the ground running. We wrote the pilot in October, and we’re airing in June. We’re used to longer development time. The Boondocks took 18 months to two years to do, so this has been incredible.”

The show’s animation is being handled by a St. Petersburg, Florida-based studio Echo Bridge, led by Esteban Valdez. “They’re the best kept-secret in the world of animation,” says Jones. “They do Flash, Toon Boom Harmony, even some CG, and fit the needs of our show perfectly. The overall style of the show is old-school Hanna-Barbera Saturday Morning show, and Echo Bridge does a great job with it.”

Overall, about 70 percent of the show is animated and the remaining parts are live-action. A typical 21-minute show features about 12 to 13 fast-paced sketches. The longest sketch is called “Lost Dreamers” and follows the misadventures of a Latinx character who is deported on Cinco de Mayo, and has to time travel to escape ICE, ending up in ancient version of San Bernadino, Calif.

“It’s like a taster’s menu at a restaurant,” says Ash. “Some sketches come back because we have more to say, and we have the production experience, building and rigging of the characters. It’s a lot like Saturday Night Live with a much more truncated schedule. The beauty of a sketch show is that if you have a favorite bit that is funny, it will probably come back. And if there’s something that you don’t like, well, it only lasts a minute or two, and you’ll be enjoying a new sketch in no time!”

Jones and Ash have learned a lot during this process. “It almost feels like we’re going two shows at once—one animated and the other live-action,” says Jones. “It’s quite a task to navigate as there are lots of moving pieces. But we’re very proud of the entire team cross the board. You are producing these really short form originals, and you may never see these animated characters again. We also have an amazing ensemble cast handling all the voices, and Fuse has been very supportive of our creative vision. The content is going to be definitely disruptive. It’s going to shake things up and cause a lot of conversation. We are presenting very honest material, and it’s amazing that they let us do what we do!”

Ash agrees. “One of the challenges of the format is to address youth and hip hop culture and to stay relevant,” he notes. “We want to speak to what is going on around us, and speak to this culture in a contemporary way. Over the last few years we’ve had this renaissance of rappers doing some interesting work. We run into these young talented people who grew up watching Boondocks and Black Dynamite. There’s this audience whose conversation is informed by things we’d done before. And their work is informing what we are doing with this show. To influence and be influenced by these young people is very important to us. We do come from a sincere place, so even when do shocking humor, these things matter to us. Animation and comedy let us expose some uncomfortable truths around us.”

The creative producers are also both quite pleased with what animators of colors have been able to achieve over the past few years. “I feel really good about it overall, but we still have a long way to go, “ says Jones. “It was so refreshing to see the new Spider-Man movie. It just blew me away, because I never imagined I would see the Spider-Man brand contextualized that way. There are so many talented, writers, directors, animators and people of color in this space who haven’t had the opportunity or voice or platform. But to see so many people of color at Comic-Con or on a panel, for example, is wonderful. It’s great for young people to see that and have all this original content speak to the directly. That’s moving the culture forward.”

He also mentions that there still needs to be a lot more visibility for women of color in the animation world. “There’s more to be down for women of color,” adds Jones. “There are some amazing storytellers and artists out there that are not being recognized. Many of these women are working on male-drive shows. We need to see the floodgates opened for more. These characters are universal, and they speak to everyone.”

Sugar & Toys airs Sundays at 11 p.m. on Fuse TV.

“The content is going to be definitely disruptive. It’s going to shake things up and cause a lot of conversation.”

CBD Edibles and Their Overall Benefits For Your Health

CBD or cannabidiol is a product of cannabis plants, but unlike THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, CBD doesn’t give a psychotropic high. Moreover, it is beneficial for a lot of reasons, especially when it comes to your health. Because of its popularity and positive effects, CBD products can come in many forms such as CBD oil, edibles, pills, and many more.

For CBD edibles, the following are the health benefits:

  1. Great for Internal Organs

CBD edibles can come in various forms such as beverages, baked goods, candies, gummies, and much more. Aside from they’re fun to eat, good to taste, and discreet to be taken, they are suitable for the following organs:

  • Lungs – CannaHealth recommended CBD gummies as an alternative to smoking or vaping CBD oil as per their review and ratings. While vaping CBD has its health effects, its side effects mostly affect the lungs. CBD edibles such as gummies don’t irritate or inflame your throat and lungs. So you can continue improving your health through it without worrying about your throat or lungs.
  • Intestines – Crohn’s disease and IBS or irritable bowel syndrome are examples of intestinal diseases that can be cured through CBD edibles. CB-2 receptors are affiliated with CBD and are also found in the cells of the intestines. When these receptors are attached to the CBD, it reduces pain and increases metabolism rate.
  • Stomach – Eating CBD edibles are not only satisfying, but it also decreases the symptoms of stomach ulcers. Through the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, it can also heal ulcers. CBD attaches to damaging cells or radicals, and these molecules become harmless.
  1. Gets Rid of Mood Swings

Mood swings can be a symptom of depression, anxiety, and stress. Although there are a lot of causes that can cause mood swings, one of the reasons for such is the chemical imbalance resulting from the deficiencies of the endocannabinoid system or ECS.

But CBD can help in balancing the ECS and as a result, relaxing the body and mind. It can help people with panic attacks to manage their anxiety when CBD is taken. CBD can also help people suffering from depression to manage their extreme emotions by taking in CBD edibles. As a result, you’ll have balanced emotional well-being.

  1. Strengthens Immune System

The immune system is stimulated by the cannabinoids through the ECS. It is responsible for perceiving if there is something wrong with the cells in the body. When it senses an error, the ECS intervenes by creating cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids. But because of many factors such as lack of exercise, presence of pollutants, and a bad diet, the ECS slowly degenerates, causing it to malfunction, thus unable to fight off cell problems.

With the help of cannabinoids present in CBD edibles, the ECS is rejuvenated. The immuno-cannabinoids present in the immune system performs better as the cannabinoid receptors change how the immune cells behave.

Cannabinoids or CBD edibles can strengthen the immune system, especially for the following:

  • Cancer – Patients with cancer have a weakened immune system, but with CBD edibles, it can fight off cancer cells. Although CBD cannot cure the disease, it can help in slowing down the growth of cancer cells. As a result, the spreading of cancer is decreased. Moreover, it helps prevent cancer patients from experiencing nausea and vomiting.
  • HIV/AIDS – individuals who have HIV have a suppressed immune system, causing them to succumb to infection. With the help of CBD, it boosts the immune system of HIV patients as it increases T-cells numbers while decreasing the viral loads. The T-cells’ function is to destroy pathogens. Moreover, the cannabinoid has the ability to stop HIV from turning into AIDs by suppressing the growth of pDC or Prolonged Plasmacytoid dendritic cells. pDC is responsible for making HIV develop into AIDS.
  1. Manages Pain

Inflammation can be caused by various factors such as heart diseases, neurological disorders, chronic inflammatory diseases, metabolic disorder complications, and bone diseases. These pains become more manageable and bearable thanks to CBD edibles. Because of the immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory components of CBD, pains can be reduced. It works by attaching to the CB2 receptors.

Here are some of the pains that CBD edibles can relieve:

  • MS or multiple sclerosis – Affects the brain and nerves by causing muscle spasms. These spasms cause severe pain, but CBD could reduce spasticity levels of MS patients.
  • Chronic pain – Whether caused by injuries or chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS or fibromyalgia, CBD edibles are dosed, so just by eating an edible infused with CBD, you’re discreetly keeping the pain at bay.



CBD edibles are easy to use and are a discreet way to consume CBD. Not only does it come in delicious foods such as brownies, chocolates, or gummies, but it can have a general effect on your overall health. It helps in curbing your emotional problems, as well as relieving your physical pains. Moreover, regular intake of CBD enables you to improve your immune system.
