Not all CBD tinctures are the same!!

Tinctures offer the best way to deliver nutrients in stable soluble form, optimal for assimilation. Tinctures retain volatile and semi volatile ingredients, usually lost in heat treated and especially reprocessed dry extracts. The importance of these ingredients for health beneficial action is hard to overestimate.

Due to convenient dosing, tinctures are one of the safest herbal preparations on the market

One of the things that people overlook when buying a High CBD tincture or oil is what is on the label! Make sure that the CBD content is listed so that you know how much of it you are getting and if you are paying a fair price. In liquid the CBD is measured in mg per ml. There is approximately 30 ml of liquid in a 1 fl oz bottle. If the label says for instance that there is 3 mg per ml of CBD, then there is a total of 90mg of CBD in that 1 oz bottle.  Some companies charge a high price for a very low amount of CBD content so it is important to shop around. With a higher quality tincture with a higher CBD content per bottle (250-300 mg) would mean you can take less of the product and get great results. 

Another number to look at is the ratio between the CBD and THC. Our tincture has a 22:1 ratio meaning there is 22 times more CBD than THC!

  1. Consider the condition you’re treating. For anxietydepressionspasms, and pediatric seizure disorders, you may do better with a moderate dose of a CBD-dominant remedy—look for a CBD:THC ratio of more than 14:1. For cancer or pain, you may need more THC, for instance, a 1:1 ratio.

So, just because a product says High CBD on the label, or Ultra High CBD, don't assume that's what it is.... Do a little research on your own and make sure they list the test results either on their label or on their website!!  It's a bit like our food industry, some labels say the product is all natural yet it is filled with junk!!

Painkiller overdoses reduced by Medical Marijuana Laws?

Just a couple of days ago, a new study was posted to the journal JAMA of Internal Medicine, and a very interesting article was written by Dr. Jamie Zimmerman, ABC News.

What they said was states that have legalized medical marijuana appear to have 25% fewer deaths from overdoses of prescription painkillers. As we all know painkillers are used and abused in this country and 100 Americans die EVERY DAY from narcotic painkiller overdose according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Quite shocking!

Dr. Marcus Bachhuber, a physician and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania and his colleagues analyzed the data on all 50 states between 1999 and 2010. While painkiller overdose rates climbed across the States, the states with medical marijuana laws climbed much slower and as the result those states had 25% fewer deaths from overdoses. They anticipated some differences but were very surprised at such a huge difference! 

The results from the study:  Conclusions and Relevance   Medical cannabis laws are associated with significantly lower state-level opioid overdose mortality rates. Further investigation is required to determine how medical cannabis laws may interact with policies aimed at preventing opioid analgesic overdose.

So the Medical Marijuana laws can protect those that want to control their pain with cannabis. Some people do not like the side effects of narcotic drugs and the potential for overdoses so they turn to a more natural remedy. Others might take prescription painkillers but also take cannabis which can lower the possibility of an overdose because they are taking less of the narcotics. Of course the question always is....what is causing the pain in the first place? If you can address that, then the pain can be resolved but if it is pain management that you are looking for, this study surely gives us other way of looking at pain control.
