Since I was young I have lived with muscular pains that have progressed in intensity, I have accepted pain as part of my life, I have exhausted all the options: analgesics, physiotherapy, acupuncture, radiofrequency, ultrasound, trace elements, suffering in the end leads to a terrible depression because it's like having the myalgies of a viral process every day affects those around us because it affects our mood until I started Cannabidiol therapy a month ago from the beginning I saw pain improvement, a restful sleep, without any effect Secondary undesirable, until you can experience 2 consecutive days without pain or any limitation .... who does not suffer from fibromyalgia does not imagine how great it is to spend a day without pain, I hope that muscle pain will progressively disappear or diminish significantly.

Yobelma Nassiff (62 years old) Doctor, diagnosis: fibromyalgia for 30 years.

I wanted to comment that my 8 year old son in the autism spectrum has been 3 weeks taking CBD oil, I have seen that you have more willingness to talk and communicate, has increased words and is executing complex orders, resolves situations and I have noticed when I ask you something now your answers, although brief, are more accurate, although it has Been a little sensitive, positive things are heavier. By the way its pleasant taste makes Easier you want to take it. Thank you for responding and being aware of my evolution. son! 100% recommended.

Take CBD (cannabidol) for muscle recovery and improve my sleep. I practice a lot daily sport and based on the anti inflammatory and relaxing effect of this, it helps me sleep better and recover my muscles quickly to train the next day; just being muscle aches after strenuous training and to tell the truth I had not slept so well in a long time, since I use CBD I have a much deeper sleep and with less interruptions

Mignonne Aal 36 Personal trainer & Pilates instructor

The CBD helps me to better performance and fast recovery in sports that I practice, I feel much more energized when I wake up and it helps me sleep much better. I feel active throughout the day. The recovery after training in the mountain has been impressive since in other opportunities after 5 hours of mountain my legs were left with pain, this recovery had not experienced before

Sergio cabello (40 years -surfer & kiteboarder)

I gave myself the opportunity to try the CBD, I could feel the improvement in the quality of my night rest. Despite not having trouble sleeping, I used to have a light and shallow sleep. Thanks to cannabidol, I lie down and awake rested, it also worked very well for muscle recovery

Alejandro Coronil (yoga teacher)

Madre de Gerónimo E Barrera (5 años)

"Since I take the CBD oil I can focus more on things, enjoy more concentration and feel more relaxed. "When I take CBD I feel much better, it has made a difference in my life."

José Corona (21 años)

"Since my husband took the CBD capsules I noticed that he sleeps until the next day, which he did not do before. In the day he says to be with more energy and more focused and I always see him in a good mood despite the conflicts that may arise at work. In general they have fallen super good."

Conditions treated with cannabis

What is cancer?

Cancer is the name given to a collection of related diseases. In all types of cancer, some of the cells in your body begin to divide without stopping and spreading to surrounding tissues. Symptoms vary widely depending on the type of cancer, but often include pain, fatigue, nausea and unexplained weight loss. Almost 40% of people will have a cancer diagnosis in their life.

Millions of Americans now have access to medical marijuana. When it comes to cancer treatment, the plant can have an incredible impact when used in concert with traditional therapies. Beyond helping with the nausea of chemotherapy, there is strong scientific evidence of a deeper benefit of using cannabis with conventional therapies. Cancer cells can become extremely sensitive to THC and CBD after being exposed to radiation or chemotherapy.

What is an anxiety disorder?

Anxiety disorders are characterized by excessive nervousness, fear, fear and worry that are out of proportion to the real danger. OCD, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and phobias are considered anxiety disorders. Symptoms include nervousness, tension, panic, feeling of fate, increased heart rate, sweating, fatigue and / or difficulty concentrating. Nearly one in three adults in the United States experience an anxiety disorder at some time in their lives.

Cannabis use has been commonly reported not only to reduce anxiety but also to improve mood and cause euphoria. In fact, data from preclinical animals suggest that THC (at lower doses) and CDBA both produce antidepressant effects. This suggests that cannabis use may be effective in reducing depression; However, reports on cannabis as an antidepressant are contradictory. Self-report questionnaires examining the reasons for cannabis use found that 22 percent of their sample used cannabis to reduce depression. In fact, a questionnaire about depressive symptoms in a survey of about 4,500 people revealed fewer depressive symptoms in cannabis users than in non-users.

What is pain?

Pain is a physical suffering or an annoyance typically caused by an illness or injury. Chronic pain is defined as any pain that lasts more than 12 weeks. It may persist for months or years. Opioids are the most common treatment for chronic pain, although important research shows that they are not effective. About 60% of people who suffer from chronic pain are women.

In the last two decades, several studies have demonstrated the anti-inflammatory benefits of phytocannabinoids and terpenoids, compounds that abound in the cannabis plant. The plant's cannabinoids have many different mechanisms of action in their anti-inflammatory properties, including blocking of pro-inflammatory compounds that occur in the body as a result of an injury or disease. CBDA, cannabidiolic acid, the crude psychoactive cannabinoid precursor of CBD, showed a significant blockade of the COX -2 enzyme compared to placebo, two NSAIDs and other cannabinoids.

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder associated with generalized pain in the muscles and bones, areas of sensitivity and general fatigue. There is no clear known cause, and fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed as another disease. Between 75 and 90% of patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women, although men can also suffer from the disorder.

* After a decade with prescription painkillers, an older person grew his own cannabise made a tincture of olive oil with olive oil infused with CBD of a complete plant from a cultivar with high CBD / THC content.
* A patient with chronic pain was able to decrease his opioid regimen by ingesting a CBD-rich tincture.
* The vaporizer and cannabis juice helped both withdrawal symptoms and fibromyalgia outbreaks, with the added benefit of allowing restful sleep.

What is Parkinson's disease?

Parkinson's disease, or PD, is a neurodegenerative disorder. Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects its movement. Symptoms begin gradually, sometimes they start with a barely perceptible tremor in one hand. The disorder also usually causes stiffness or slowing of movement. Less than one percent of people have Parkinson's. It is more common in men than in women.

Scientists at the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Kentucky have identified a previously unknown molecular target of cannabidiol (CBD), which may have important therapeutic implications for Parkinson's disease (PD).

Depletion of GPR6 has been shown to cause an increase in dopamine, a critical neurotransmitter, in the brain. This finding suggests that GPR6 may have a role in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, a chronic neurodegenerative disease that leads to the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons (dopamine producers) and the consequent impairment of motor control. By acting as a ``reverse agonist`` at the GPR6 receptor, the CBD increases dopamine levels in preclinical studies.

What are migraines?

A migraine is a recurring throbbing headache that usually affects one side of the head and is often accompanied by nausea and altered vision. Symptoms may include sensitivity to light, sound, smell or touch, nausea and vomiting, dizziness and blurred vision. About 12% of people experience migraines (including children). It is more common in women than in men.

Greg Gerdeman:
The use of cannabis or other sources of cannabinoids for rheumatic diseases shows a lot of preclinical promises due to the importance of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of inflammation and the adaptive immune response.

Many of the players involved in rheumatic diseases such as macrophages, infiltration and release of proinflammatory cytokines, the release of interleukins that are pain sensitizing and help lead to chronic inflammatory pain associated with rheumatic diseases, these inflammatory cytokines are moistened by receptors CB2 cannabinoids present in lipocytes, present in synovial fibroblast-like cells.

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is an inflammation of one or more of your joints. There are many different types, which include osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Symptoms may include joint pain, stiffness or swelling. Approximately one in five people has arthritis. It is more common in women and in people with heart disease or diabetes.

The study examines current knowledge of the physiological and clinical effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) and presents a rationale for its combination in pharmaceutical preparations. The effects of cannabinoid and vanilloid receptors, as well as non-receptor mechanisms, such as the ability of THC and CBD to act as anti-inflammatory substances independent of cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibition, are explored. It was shown that CBD antagonizes some undesirable effects of THC including poisoning, sedation and tachycardia, while providing analgesic, antiemetic and anticancer properties in their own right.

¿Qué es la inflamación?

Inflammation is the process by which the white blood cells of your body protect you from infections. Unregulated inflammation, however, becomes a disease. If the inflammatory process lasts too long or if the inflammatory response occurs in places where it is not needed, it can be problematic. Symptoms include redness, swelling, pain and stiffness. Chronic inflammation has been linked to diseases such as heart disease or stroke, and can also lead to autoimmune disorders.

Some studies suggest that cannabinoids such as THC and CBD are immunosuppressants, which may explain the relief experienced by cannabis users with autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation. Other studies have shown that regular cannabis use can increase white blood cell counts in immunodeficiency disorders such as HIV, which suggests an immunological stimulation effect.

What is asthma?

Asthma is a respiratory condition marked by spasms in the bronchi of the lungs, which causes difficulty in breathing. Symptoms may include difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest or pain, coughing, wheezing or difficulty sleeping. About 8% of people have asthma.

Coffee and cannabis are two of the most widely used psychoactive substances in the world. While cannabis is often consumed to relax the body, improve perception and stimulate creativity, coffee, such as tea and other caffeinated beverages, is normally used to energize and help people concentrate, especially when exhausted. .
