“Our mission is to provide American made, all-natural CBD Oil products, utilizing the highest quality organic raw materials while conveying maximum value, education to the client and exceptional customer service.”
Hemp products also carry the potential to reverse a tragic trend seen in recent years: the falling American life expectancy. While rising in almost every country, the US life expectancy fell from 78.7 in 2016 to 78.6 in 2017. This is the third year in a row that it has dropped. The causes of this problem are rising rates of suicide and drug overdose. Suicides have increased by 33 percent since 1999 to 15 suicides per 100,000 people. Drug overdoses are up by 255 percent to 25 per 100,000 people. There were 6,600 more drug overdose deaths in 2017 compared to 2016, which were often related to both prescription and recreational opioids.
It is clear that prescription drugs are killing people by the thousands. Official estimates count over 40,000 opioid overdoses in 2016 alone and roughly 64,000 drug overdoses in total. In 2015, the number of deaths from all prescription drugs was estimated to be 443,900. Some of these fatalities were caused by misuse, but many were the result of the drugs being prescribed and taken correctly.
Conversely, nutritional supplements are associated with zero recorded deaths. The 35th annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers, which was just released, shows zero deaths from vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, niacin, pyridoxine (B-6), or from any other B-vitamin, all of which are popular nutritional supplements. There have been no deaths associated with CBD either.
The Many Benefits ofCBDOil
CBD and other phytochemicals in hemp, such as CBG, CBC, and terpenes such as beta-myrcene and D-linalool, can help relieve chronic pain through reducing inflammation and providing a direct analgesic effect. Inflammation directly causes pain, and when it is chronic, leads to tissue damage. Nerve pain — which can be excruciating — often results from nerve damage, but CBD has neuroprotective properties and can increase levels of the nerve growth factor.
What’s more, CBD can not only help heal the chronic pain that leads to opioid use, but it can also help people to recover from addiction. A small study on heroin addicts compared three days of CBD treatment to a placebo for its effects on cue-induced heroin cravings, general cravings and cue-induced anxiety. The CBD mostly prevented the cravings that would normally be triggered by cues and put a halt to cue-induced anxiety.
One day after their first CBD dose, the participants’ general craving scores dropped approximately seven points, and one week after their last dose, their craving scores were 15 points lower than before treatment.
Vitalogy Naturals CBD has successfully addressed absorption deficiencies with its proprietary Technology. The enhanced solubility created with this technology (shown in the graph above) sets the stage for greater Total Bioavailability, resulting in a maximum desired response.
Total Bioavailability means the degree to which an active ingredient becomes available for its desired purpose after entering the body. It has two components:
Typically, as much as 95 percent of ordinary CBD is destroyed on its way to the bloodstream. Then, only a fraction of what gets there yields any effects. Without efficient Total Bioavailability, ordinary CBD products
are of limited use.
Studies show that CBD coupled with our exclusive Technology does not degrade in the stomach, as does ordinary CBD. Also, our patent-protected technology greatly enhances the transport of CBD to the bloodstream and then to sites in the body where it can achieve the desired response.
Vitalogy Naturals CBD and its vastly superior Total Bioavailability multiplies the strength of our products far beyond the reach of competitors. The profound advances made by doing credible science have positioned us to be the global leader in setting industry standards for quality, performance, and Total Bioavailability. The implications of our advances for transforming CBD use are beyond calculation.
Nanotechnology (“nanotech”) is manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. It is therefore common to see the plural form “nanotechnologies” as well as “nanoscale technologies” to refer to the broad range of research and applications whose common trait is size.
IMPORTANT: CBD AND DRUG INTERACTIONS ARE NOT A JOKE. IF YOU WANT TO START TAKING CBD AND ARE ALREADY TAKING OTHER MEDICATIONS, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST!
While CBD is safe to use, it can potentially mess with other medications you may be taking. This quick guide should be all you need to safely use CBD even if you have other medications you need to take.
Yes. The way that CBD is metabolized by your body can interfere with how your body normally metabolizes other drugs you take. If those other drugs aren’t metabolized properly, they can hang around and stay in your system longer than you want. This can cause negative side effects and complications.
One kind of drug you should pay special attention to is a blood thinner like warfarin. Taking CBD with warfarin can make the warfarin stay in your system for too long without being broken down.
CBD drug interactions aren’t always bad. They can actually be a good thing. CBD can make other drugs more effective, so much so that you can reduce the dosage of those other drugs and thus have less negative side effects to deal with.
The GrapefruitTestis all you need
Thank you to Martin Lee of Project CBD for inspiring the Grapefruit Test. If you haven’t been to Project CBD yet, make sure to check it out. They are running a great site with lots of useful information about cannabis medicine.
As Lee explained in his class CBD 101, CBD interacts with other medications in your body in the same way as grapefruit, only even stronger.
Have you ever been told not to take your medication with grapefruit? This is because compounds in grapefruits can interfere with the metabolism of many medications.
CBD does the same thing. But as I said above, the effect is even stronger with CBD.
Do the grapefruit test with your doctor or pharmacist. Ask them: “Should I avoid eating grapefruits or drinking grapefruit juice with this medication?”
They will know exactly what you are talking about. If they say yes, you should avoid grapefruits with your medication, you now know you need to be careful about mixing CBD with those same meds as well. Talk to your doctor about CBD and tell them about it if they say you should avoid grapefruits with your medication.
Alternatively, you can skip the Grapefruit Test and just directly tell your doctor you want to use CBD.
We always recommend you do this anyway, even if your doctor doesn’t work directly with cannabis. Medical schools typically don’t educate physicians about the endocannabinoid system, the most widespread receptor system in the human body. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t educate them about it!
If your doctor is aware of your CBD usage, he may decide to monitor your blood work more closely or tell you to avoid taking CBD at the exact same time as your other medications.
Play it safe and keep CBD safe.
If you take other medication, speak with your doctor before you start taking CBD.
Are CBD Products Legal?
There is no short answer. Vitalogy Naturals CBD products have 0.00% THC in them and are non-psychoactive. Our products can be legally shipped and consumed in all 50 states.
Will CBD Oil Show Up On A Drug Test?
Drug tests are looking to find traces of THC, not CBD. Vitalogy Naturals CBD is THC FREE. Therefore, our CBD Oil will NOT show up on a drug test and will not produce psychoactive effects.
What Will I Notice When I Take CBD Oil?
Depending on several factors ranging from dosage to body weight and health status, each individuals dosage varies. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not produce a high. You will not experience significant changes in mood, awareness or state of mind.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Despite numerous studies of a wide variety of dosages of CBD, no side effects have been reported. However, it is always recommended to consult with your health care provider.
