High on Health: CBD in the Food Supply

High on Health: CBD in the Food Supply

Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found within the human body. They've been there for 600,000 years or more, but we've only just noticed it! One of the remarkable things about endocannabinoids is their striking similarity to the active ingredients of cannabis called phyto-cannabinoids. In fact, it was the effort by scientists to understand the exact mechanism by which cannabis works in the body that led to the discovery of the Endocannabinoid System little more than a decade ago.

The science of endocannabinoid medicine has progressed to a dizzying degree in the past few years. There is wider awareness that the 'endocannabinoid system' is the largest neurotransmitter system in the human body, regulating relaxation, eating, sleeping, memory, and, as noted by the Italian scientist Vincenzo Di Marzo, even our immune system.
Cannabinoids promote homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite external fluctuations, at every level of biological life, from the sub-cellular, to the organism. For example, endocannabinoids are now understood as the source of the runner's high.  The endocannabinoids naturally found in human breast milk, which are vital for proper human development, have virtually identical effects as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Amazingly, the mechanism at work after smoking or eating cannabis, when adults get the "munchies, is essentially the same as what causes breastfeeding babies to seek protein-rich milk.

Universally accepted following its discovery in 1995, the endocannabinoid system asserts it power to heal and balance the other systems of the body by turning on or off the expression of genes. Cannabinoids hold the key that unlocks receptor sites throughout the brain and immune system triggering potent healing and pain-killing effects.
The endocannabinoid anandamide, (Ananda = bliss in Sanskrit + amide = chemical type) a naturally neurotransmitting lipid compound made by all mammals, is basically a self-manufactured "natural THC" circulating within. Anandamide and THC act through the cannabinoid receptors and have similar effects on pain, appetite, and memory, etc.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in the body -- the CB1 receptors found primarily in the brain and the central nervous system, and the CB2 receptors that are distributed but primarily found in the immune system. These receptors respond to cannabinoids, whether they be from breast milk, or from a cannabis plant.
Aside from the cannabinoids produced by the body and those found in cannabis, there are numerous substances that interact with the endocannabinoid system, such as cacao, black pepper, echinacea, tumeric and even carrots. But it is the Cannabis plant that produces the most powerful cannabinoids mimicing most closely those produced by the body. No downsides, no side-effects, no drug interaction issues, and so far, no giving up your hard earned funds to big pharma.

Make no mistake, I'm not referring to THC, of which Americans smoke more of per person than any other people on Earth, but rather the "other," non-psychoactive cannabinoid called Cannabidiol (CBD), a prominent molecular component of the cannabis plant.  While CBD does not bind to either the CB1 or CB2 cannabinoid receptors directly, it does stimulate endogenous cannabinoid activity by suppressing an enzyme that breaks down anandamide. CBD is also a counterbalance to the action of THC at the CB1 receptor, mitigating or muting the psychoactive effects of THC.  Weed enthusiasts would be wise to keep some CBD on hand for when things get... out of hand.

If just 10% of what research doctors are now saying about CBD is true, then this is a discovery with significance similar in medical impact to the discovery of antibiotics. Myriad serious scientific peer-reviewed studies in Europe have pointed to CBD as having almost unprecedented healing power over an extraordinary variety of pathologies. Even the stodgy National Cancer Institute has referenced this on their website.
Surprisingly, there is still little awareness of this outside of the medical research community.  Surely an unknown plant newly found in a remote rainforest with the same medical profile would be heralded as a miraculous cure. But in the last half-century, this particular plant has been better known as an intoxicant than a medicine.
The stigma that obscures wider awareness of its beneficial nature has been carefully cultivated. For decades, Hearst newspapers bombarded Americans with images of Mexicans and African Americans led into vice and violence by the evil weed. In the public mind, cannabis was transformed from an obscure ingredient in patented medicines with pharmacy sales rivaling aspirin, to an intoxicant the use of which would lead inevitably to decline and debauchery.

In a spectacular confluence of politics, racism, corporate greed, and political corruption, the federal government managed to outlaw cannabis for all purposes in 1937, with medical research becoming virtually impossible in the U.S.
Now, in California and around the country, research doctors are peer-reviewing the recent explosion of clinical studies from abroad, as well as conducting their own pre-clinical research without humans. Persuasive evidence abounds that CBD is effective in easing symptoms as well as reversing of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections, neurological disorders, and muscular dystrophy.
CBD has no side effects and becomes very effective as an anti-psychotic when given in larger doses. With more antioxidant potency than either vitamin C or E, CBD has consistently demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is, by all accounts, enormous. Sean McAllister, PhD at California Pacific Medical Center said "CBD could spell the end of breast cancer," and claims it could render chemotherapy and radiation a distant 2nd and 3rd options for cancer patients.
Don Abrams M.D. at UCSF says the studies point to "a remarkable ability of CBD to arrest cancer cell division, cell migration, metastasis, and invasiveness."  The vast impact of the endocannabinoid system on human health explains and validates anecdotal reports of cannabis used effectively for a wide range of health conditions. Studies on the efficacy of CBD treatment are already driving the design and development of precision targeted single-molecule medicines. Indeed, we are hard-wired for cannabinoids.

The US government may not admit the medical efficacy of cannabis, but the global pharmaceutical industry has been researching it for many years. Some 350 scientists from drug-company labs including Merck, Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Bristol-Myers Squibb, AstraZeneca, and Allergan (maker of Botox and silicone breast implants) regularly attend meetings of the International Cannabinoid Research Society. They are all trying to develop synthetic drugs that confer some of the health benefits of cannabis without the psychoactivity. "It's a foregone conclusion," says Julie Holland, M.D.,"that the next decade will see a new generation of Big Pharma medications based on cannabis."  
According to Martin A. Lee, author of Smoke Signals, vitamin D combined with CBD could become "the killer public health app of the post-prohibition era." A new CBD/THC medicine for cancer pain called Sativex from the British company, GW Pharmaceuticals, is finishing the final FDA-approval process. While there is no time limit on enduring prejudice, as science reveals more about how the cannabinoid system works, the stigma associated with cannabis use is expected to fade.

CBD-enriched health foods, tinctures and oils are the next revolution in food and medicine. There is currently an explosion of entrepreneurial activity and creativity around making up for lost time with CBD. LA-based cannabis physician Allan Frankel explains that, "up until this past year, it has been impossible to help patients using CBD. Cannabis growers were focused on the stoniest weed," hence, CBD which is non-psychoactive, was nearly lost. Now, more CBD rich strains are turning up, in part because there are laboratories that can accurately assess how much of which cannabinoid is present and check for mold and pesticides.
We are still in the early stages of understanding the synergistic effects of all the cannabinoids, not to mention the terpenoids--the sticky aromatic terpenes that give cannabis its characteristic smell. Research, as well as results in the field, shows that the presence of some THC and other cannabinoids in smaller amounts potentiate the healing effects of CBD. The combined effects of the cannabinoids, terpenes and perhaps another 200 other molecules all working together and carefully balanced in nature is what Dr. Ethan Russo calls an "Entourage Effect".

The burgeoning edible cannabis industry until recently was focused on making food items so radically THC dominant that you could easily become catatonic 3 hours after ingestion.  Anecdotal evidence suggests while most people enjoy these powerful treats, many people have had challenging experiences, replete with anxiety, panic, and functional psychosis.
Fortunately, for seekers of good health or for those targeting disease, there are now CBD-rich edibles that don't make you high, such as raw organic cacao from the Green Cacao Company, multi-flavored CBD dominant lozenges CBD-OOS, and other similar products delightful to the palate as well as therapeutically effective. 
As the health benefits are better understood, the huge market potential of non-psychoactive CBD-foods will likely be recognized. CBD-rich tinctures, such as Dew Drops Hemp Oil from Denver based Dixie Botanicals sells their industrial hemp oil over the internet with no medical marijuana permit required. Before long, there will be a plethora of food products rich in CBD, essentially creating a new food sector more legitimately called "health food," than what is currently found in natural foods stores.

CBD-rich foods need not make any health claims thus avoiding issues with the FDA. Imagine creamy CBD enhanced peanut butter, cooking oils, cereals, and beverages. Don't be surprised that in a few short years, you will be hearing doctors (not just cannabis physicians) advise their patients to "exercise, and get your CBD." Obtaining enough CBD to make a medically significant difference requires edible, vapor, or sublingual delivery thus avoiding the health risks associated with smoking.

In this fast and fanciful look forward, one should not leave out the inevitable resurgence of large-scale cultivation and production of fiber hemp, a versatile, ecologically sustainable plant with more than 25,000 known industrial applications--everything from hemp clothing, cosmetics, and foods (hemp seeds are a powerful source of protein), to oil-free plastics, hemp surfboards, insulation, and car panels.  
Practically speaking, CBD, or what Robert Louis Stevenson called the "golden oil," is but a by-product of the non-psychoactive hemp plant. As you read this, thousands of industrial hemp farms are stripping the CBD-rich leaves and stems from the desired fiber and composting them. It's reasonable to suppose that the tragedy of losing all that medical value for victims of cancer and other maladies will not be lost on those that follow us.  
If the cannabis plant hasn't done enough for us--providing wellness for the body and change for the mind, it can also help us pull the petroleum out of our economic jugular, possibly giving rise to a healthier vegetable-based organic life-support system for our children.

Cannabinoids & Breast Milk: Do Cannabinoids Play A Larger Role In Our Life Than We Thought?


|   February 13, 2013

Research into the workings of the endocannabinoid system has yielded significant discoveries for scientists attempting to learn more about pre and post-natal development.

It is apparent that endocannabinoids, chemical compounds produced in the body that are similar to the psychoactive ingredients in marijuana, act as a catalyst for early embryonic development and development thereafter into maturity. The same compounds have also been found at incredibly high concentrations in maternal breast milk, suggesting that cannabinoids are more important to our successful growth than was ever thought before.

All Humans Are Born With Cannabinoid Receptors

The European Journal of Pharmacology published an article back in 2004 that claimed the messenger RNA of CB1 (the abbreviation for a group of specialized proteins known as cannabinoid receptors) can be found in the human embryo just fourteen weeks after gestation. Subsequently in the 20th week, growth of cannabinoid receptor activity in several areas of the brain starts to accelerate at a rapid rate. Observation of the embryo at this stage indicates that the cannabinoid receptors are functional and active during this early stage of development.
“Endocannabinoids and their receptors are abundantly present from the early developmental stages, and are therefore likely to be important in the maturation of the nervous system and its functions.”
Earlier studies proved that two endocannabinoids, anandamide and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, are both present in the early stages of a human embryo. Anandamide has been proven to start out in low concentrations in the embryonic stage, gradually increasing throughout time until the eventual levels that we reach in maturity are attained.
Interestingly enough, it is exactly the opposite for 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, which starts at its highest concentration levels in the embryo and gradually decreases over time.

Endocannabinoid Production in Human Breast Milk

breastfeed1The discovery of endocannabinoid production in human breast milk is certainly another nail in the coffin for those who subscribe to the theory that marijuana belongs in the same category as other class-1 narcotics. The occurrence and role of cannabinoids in breast milk has been the subject of multiple studies, and it is the belief of researchers that cannabinoids play an integral role in how babies learn to latch onto their mother’s nipple for sustenance.
It is theorized that, since cannabinoid activity has already been proven to be linked with appetite stimulation in adults, cannabinoids in breast milk are what first stimulate a nursing baby’s appetite. Cannabinoids, combined with other nutrients in breast milk, also provide the newborn with protection from viruses, bacteria, and cancer causing factors. This means that cannabinoids are quite literally essential in the development of infants.
These types of findings make the continued prohibition of marijuana seem utterly ludicrous. Cannabinoids are an integral part of our development and well-being from the time we are in our mother’s wombs, throughout the entirety of our lives. Their presence in a mother’s breast milk jump starts the newborn’s appetite for the first time (this process can be seen in a different scenario when adults smoke marijuana and get the munchies). The health benefits that cannabinoids offer can be seen time and time again; whether it’s in the developing nervous system of an unborn child, the breast milk of a nursing mother, or even in a chemistry of a simple plant

  • Reduction of many degenerative diseases through preventative measures
  • Miracle Source hulled hemp seeds are Non-GMO, Gluten-free, Herbicide & Pesticide free, Peanut free, THC and Tryspin Inhibitor free, Vegetarian approved & Kosher certified.
  • Our Certified Organic seeds have the highest organic certification from USDA and OCPP/Pro Cert Canada. What’s the difference between Certified Organic & Conventional hemp seed?
The nutritional composition of a hemp seed is incredible! In it’s perfect organic natural state hemp seed is considered by many to be the safest, most digestible, balanced, natural and complete source of protein, amino acids, and essential fats found anywhere in nature.
  • Hemp seed is 33% protein
  • Hemp seed is 35% essential fatty acid (Omega 3, 6, 9 and GLA)
  • Contains all 11 essential amino acids
  • Contains 6.2 x more Omega-3 than raw tuna
  • Contains an abundant source of GLA
  • Rich in trace minerals
  • High in dietary fiber
After consuming only one serving of hulled hemp seed many people feel an elevated sense of awareness, mental clarity, and pure abundant energy that lasts all day.
Hemp seed is a beneficial and healthy food for the elderly, middle aged, teenaged, children, infant, and especially nursing mothers.
For best results consume 4 – 5 tablespoons with breakfast each morning for increased physical and mental energy that lasts all day.
One serving (4 tbsp – 42 grams) contains:
Shelled  or hulled hemp seed has a wonderful nutty flavor that can easily be incorporated into your diet while providing a powerful daily supplement. Hemp seeds contain approximately 33% protein, 35% essential fatty acid (in the form of nutritious hemp oil), and 12% carbohydrates (mostly from fiber), in addition to an excellent array of vitamins and minerals.
The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the lesser desired saturated fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) contained in hemp seed oil are deemed essential because our bodies do not naturally produce them. This means that they must be obtained from the food we eat.
Most health organizations agree that the human body needs a 3 or 4:1 balance of omega 6 over omega 3. Hemp seed is the only seed where this ideal balance occurs. It does not occur in flax, almond, walnut, soybean or olive oil. Daily use of flax seed can lead to dangerous imbalances since flax seed oil has a balance of 1:4 instead of a healthy 4:1 omega-6 over omega-3.
EFAs are involved with producing life’s energy throughout the human body and without them, life is not possible. In general, North Americans have a high dietary deficiency in EFAs due to their high intake of processed foods and meats.
Extensive studies have demonstrated that many common illnesses are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body. Symptoms are often related to a lack of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and their derivatives, the postaglandins.
Hemp protein is also a complete source of all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) which our bodies cannot produce. Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seed is made up of the globulin protein Edestin and is found only in hemp seed. Edestin aids digestion, is relatively phosphorus-free and considered the backbone of the cell’s DNA. The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites. Hemp protein is free of the tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas.
It has been proven in several clinical studies that dietary supplementation with EFAs or their metabolites (such as GLA) may often prevent or even cure many forms of illness.
Hemp seed also provides an excellent supply of antioxidants (Vitamin E), carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), phytosterols, phospholipids and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc. Hemp seed also provides a good source of chlorophyll.
There are no known allergies to organic hemp seed, making it perfect for those who have nut, dairy, and gluten or wheat allergies.
Miracle Source hulled hemp seeds are the highest quality seeds available.
All our seeds, both conventional and certified organic are grown in Canada without the use of herbicides or pesticides. They are also Non-GMO, Gluten-free, Peanut free, THC and Tryspin Inhibitor free, Vegetarian approved and Kosher certified.

Steve Beshear Asks Obama For Help With Hemp

Story From
In a shift toward embracing a potential new agricultural industry, Gov. Steve Beshear has written to President Barack Obama asking for help with hemp.Govenor Steve Beshear- Hemp Advocate
“While experience in Canada tells us that the economic opportunities in the hemp industry are still largely unknown, we want to explore any and all opportunities that have the possible potential for job creation and enhancing rural economies in areas of our state,” Beshear wrote in a June 7 letter to the president.
In a nod to concerns of law enforcement, Beshear asked that the U.S. Attorney General, the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture “work with the Drug Enforcement Administration to identify economic opportunities in the hemp industry that do not negatively impact our drug eradication efforts.”
During the 2013 session, the Kentucky General Assembly passed a bill to allow farmers to grow hemp if federal regulations are changed to allow it. At the time, Beshear said he shared the concerns of Kentucky State Police that legal hemp would be hard to distinguish from illegal marijuana.
Beshear allowed Senate Bill 50, which will set up a licensing framework, to become law but did not sign it.
The governor, in his letter to Obama, indicated he now wants to find a way to work around those legal issues.
“The governor hasn’t changed his position at all,” spokeswoman Kerri Richardson said. “The letter merely indicates his desire that we explore any opportunity for growing industrial hemp, if law enforcement concerns can be satisfied.”
State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer, who championed the issue, hailed Beshear’s involvement.
“I welcome the governor’s partnership in this effort and for bringing this important issue to the president’s attention,” Comer said in a statement. “We have to start talking very seriously about job creation in this state, and I think we are going to have to look for new, creative ways to help our farmers and agriculture community. And if we are going to move Kentucky forward, Republicans and Democrats will have to work together.”
Last month, Comer and former state Treasurer Jonathan Miller, a Democrat, met with lawmakers and administration officials in Washington to urge them to distinguish hemp from marijuana.
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Bowling Green, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Louisville, tried unsuccessfully to insert pro-hemp language into the federal Farm Bill, which is coming up for a vote in the Senate.
Paul and McConnell, along with most members of Kentucky’s congressional delegation, also have sponsored a separate bill to make hemp cultivation legal again.
The senators issued a joint statement Thursday: “Although we’re disappointed in the lack of consideration of our industrial hemp amendment, it is only the beginning of our legislative efforts. We are committed to continuing to look at all options to win approval of this important legislation for job creation in Kentucky.”
The Kentucky Industrial Hemp Commission meets at 1 p.m. Thursday in Frankfort at Comer’s office to elect a new chair and discuss developments in Washington.

Colorado: Governor Signs Law Regulating State Hemp Production

by Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy DirectorJune 14, 2013

Governor John Hickenlooper has signed legislation, Senate Bill 241, into law creating a new program within the Department of Agriculture to oversee the regulation of commercial hemp production. Hemp is a distinct variety of the plant species cannabis sativa that contains only minute (less than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
Senate Bill 241 classifies cannabis possessing no more than three-tenths of one percent THC as an agricultural commodity and establishes a 9-member committee within the state Department of Agriculture to oversee the creation of regulations governing the licensed cultivation of hemp for commercial and research purposes. The Department must adopt regulations for the new program no later than March 1, 2014.
Unlike similar laws enacted in other states, SB 241 does not mandate farmers seeking state-issued hemp cultivation licenses to also seek federal approval. The federal Controlled Substances Act makes no legal distinction between marijuana and industrial hemp.
Federal legislation, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2013, to amend the Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana is currently pending in the US Senate and House of Representatives and has been sponsored by prominent politicians such as Senators Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell. You can click here to write your federal officials in support of this legislation. Recent efforts to attach this legislation as an amendment to the US Senate Farm bill were unsuccessful.
The United States is the only developed nation that fails to cultivate industrial hemp as an economic crop, according to the Congressional Resource Service

Thank you NORML For this Great Information on Industrial Hemp!
America needs this Cannabis Hemp plant as a Sustainable Resource!

Industrial Hemp Has the (EFA's) Our body Needs ~ High in Protein, Vitamin A,D,& E

Hemp Oil comes from the Hemp plant. The unrefined hemp oil, which comes from the seeds of the hemp plant, is green in color and has a nutty taste.
It has anywhere from 30 to 35% oil per weight, which equals about 80% fatty acids, and is a very high resource for getting those essential fatty acids that everyone needs in their regular diet.
Hemp seeds contain 25% protein which act as antibodies and enzymes. In order for a protein to be considered as a complete protein, it has to have 10 amino acids in order to have the quantity that is needed for the body.
Amino Acids help to break down protein through the digestive system, and hemp protein contains 20 of the 10 that is necessary for one’s body. Hemp oil is phosphorus free oil that contains two types of protein, which are only found in hemp seed. Edestin, which helps in food digestion, has 65% protein make up, and Albumin which is also found in egg whites.
Hemp oil is proven to have around 80% polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are considered to be the fats that are good for our bodies, and yet our bodies do not produce these acids; they have to be taken into the body through a person’s diet. It contains substantial amounts of Omega 3 and Omega 6, which are necessary in producing fatty acids.
It also contains high amounts of vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, in the form of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta tocopherol and alpha tocotrienol, as well as vitamin A, chlorophyll, phosphorus, iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium, and potassium, as well as vitamin D.
Hemp seed oil helps to block and reduce the possibility of having an upset stomach and in preventing gas pockets. It doesn’t have the inhibitors that cause upset stomachs as the case with soy protein.
People that have taken hemp oil on a regular basis have been found to have more healthy skin and a strong immune system. Because of the high content of Omega 3 and Omega 6, hemp is a large contributor in preventing heart trouble, and also lowering the cholesterol level. It helps in the treatment of cancer, such as prostate, colon or breast cancers. It is proven to reduce dementia (Alzheimer’s), as well as the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
The high content of vitamin D helps in treating and in preventing osteoporosis, inflammation, eczema and psoriasis. Hemp is needed in very high quantities to promote healthy growth in children. Proper enzyme formations come from the sulfur containing amino acids that are produced from hemp seeds.

It would benefit everyone to take hemp oil as a dietary supplement to produce the good fatty acids that our bodies desperately need, but do not produce on its own. Almost everyone suffers from one or many forms of the ailments as described above and desperately need to help their own bodies to produce satisfactory results.

Industrial / Nutritional Hemp in America, America Needs this Crop, Americans Need this Crop!

                   Industrial Hemp Can Help Feed our Nation

               The Nutritional Benefits of Industrial Hemp :
Hemp foods contain 35% carbohydrates, 30% fat, 35% fiber, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, and in particular vitamin E, and only 8% saturated fat, or less.
Hemp's nutrients are the most important things we can get in our diets, and we Americans are not getting enough. As of now, 90% of Americans do not get enough EFAs into their diet. This is critical because a deficiency in EFAs will result in changes in cell structure (cancer), brittle and dull hair and nails, plus dandruff, allergies and possibly dermatitis.
Hemp foods and oils are a rich source of complete protein and essential fatty acids.
Hemp food products range from cereals and pastas to frozen waffles with new foods being developed constantly. The fresh leaves can also be eaten in salads.
Hemp seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal or flour, sprouted, made into hemp milk, as a protein powder, prepared as tea, made into hempnut butter, and used in baking. Pet and livestock foods can also be made from hemp.
Hemp foods could help reverse Americans' negative eating habits Serving Sizes
and make us healthier. Hemp could help us maintain our cholesterol levels while we continue to eat large amounts of animal products. We need EFAs to break down the cholesterol we ingest, so we don't get strokes and heart attacks.
