A Beginner’s Guide To CBD Oil: What It Is & How It Works

The last few years have seen a soar in popularity of CBD oils. They’re all over the news, and it seems like many people are using CBD oils for a range of different conditions. But what exactly is CBD oil? And how does it work?

To help you answer any questions, we’ve written a beginner’s guide to CBD oils. In the post below, we’ll cover everything you need to know about the latest trend in medical and therapeutic treatments.

What is CBD oil?

CBD refers to cannabidiol, a chemical compound that is found in the cannabis plant.

Cannabis contains a number of these chemical compounds — known as cannabinoids — that affect the body in different ways.

There are many different cannabinoids found in the plant, and scientists have managed to isolate 113 of these and are currently investigating the properties of each. However, there are two main compounds that people are usually referring to when they speak about cannabinoids: THC and CBD.

THC refers to tetrahydrocannabinol — the chemical compound that we associate with smoking marijuana and “getting high.” THC is psychoactive, which means that it affects our brain function when we smoke it, resulting in temporary changes to mood, perception, and behavior.

On the other hand, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive chemical. If taken, CBD cannot get the user “high” or affect brain function — it has a more therapeutic effect on the body instead.

CBD oil is an oil derived from this compound that comes in a variety of different forms (tablets, creams, vapes etc) and different strengths. CBD oil and other CBD products are legal to buy, possess and use in all US states, as well as many countries across the world.

How does CBD oil work?

CBD oil works by interacting with receptors in our body.

The human body actually has a biological communication system called the “endocannabinoid system,” which contains receptors that cannabinoids interact with. The two receptors that make up this endocannabinoid system are CB1 receptors (which are found in the nervous system, organs, and tissues) and CB2 receptors (found in the immune system).

Cannabinoids like CBD work almost like a switch, turning this system “on” and activating these receptors to carry out their normal jobs more effectively. This could be in terms of regulating pain or decreasing inflammation (among other things).  

What are the benefits are CBD oil?

CBD oil has a wide range of benefits, and can be effective at treating the following conditions and illnesses:

Chronic pain

Cannabidiol has natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been shown to alleviate chronic pain and reduce inflammation for a number of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes, and arthritis. This helps MS and arthritis patients to better manage the symptoms of their conditions. For example, CBD can help to improve sleep and help with MS muscle spasms and stiffness.

Depression and anxiety disorders

CBD regulates the amygdala (the part of your brain that controls fear) which means it can be used to help reduce the symptoms and behaviors of anxiety disorders such as social anxiety, PTSD, OCD and panic disorders.

CBD can also be used as a natural alternative to synthetic antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, which can come with severe side effects. Instead, CBD interacts with the body’s serotonin receptors, regulating the user’s mood and reducing anxiety.

Epilepsy

CBD oils can be used to reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures, and may even prevent seizures and cause improvements in the sufferer’s overall condition. The uses of CBD in epilepsy and other seizure disorders are still being investigated by researchers.

Cancer

CBD could possibly help to combat cancer, suppressing the growth of cancer cells and helping to destroy them. Clinical research trials still need to be carried out studying the effect of CBD on cancerous cells, so if you are thinking of using CBD oil to help with cancer symptoms, we suggest talking to your healthcare team.

Are there any side effects?

Like any medication, there are side effects to using CBD oils.

However, the side effects that CBD causes are minor and rare. Some users have reported drowsiness (the most common side effect of using CBD oils), as well as changes in appetite, mild stomach upset and diarrhea after using CBD products. CBD can also cause dry skin and a dry mouth.

As you can see, none of these side effects that users experience are severe, and most users do not experience any at all.

CBD can interact with some medications, so it’s advisable to check with a physician to see if CBD will either increase or decrease the effects of the medication you already take.

How do you use and buy CBD oils?

As a medical supplement, CBD can be taken in a variety of ways, such as tablets or capsules, creams, vapes and even gummies. However, CBD oil is one of the most common forms, and is taken by placing a few drops either under the tongue or on your gums.

Over the last few years, the popularity of CBD has increased dramatically, and there are now many different ways you can purchase it. CBD products are completely legal in the US (as well as many other countries over the world) — to buy, possess and use.

The best place to buy CBD oil is online, with suppliers like Sol CBD offering a variety of strengths and flavors. Flavored CBD is a good idea because CBD oil on its own can taste quite bitter (or alternatively, you can combine CBD with honey to make it taste sweeter).

If you’re just starting to use CBD oil for the first time, you may want to start on a small dosage and take it at the end of the day, just in case you suffer from any mild side effects like drowsiness. We’d also recommend speaking with a medical professional for some personalized advice on how to use CBD to treat your specific condition.

Conclusion

CBD oils have a wide range of benefits for users dealing with varying conditions or health issues — and the products come with very few side effects too. If you’re new to the world of CBD oils, you might want to think about consulting a medical professional before you start to use it as a treatment.

This Week in Low Carb News – Taubes and Guyenet on Rogan

Every week my browser fills up with tabs of stories I want to talk about. I never get to them all so this is everything I think is interesting in the Low Carb/Keto/Healthy Diet field from this week.

Taubes/Guyenet Debate on Rogan – This was easily the biggest thing in this space this week. It had so much potential but we couldn’t get past the personalities of the debaters to engage in the arguments. I posted some thoughts on twitter here but in the end I’m not sure it matters what camp you are in. As long as you avoid highly processed foods high in both carbs and fat, you will generally get thinner and healthier.

5 Ways We’re Powerless Against Junk Food Marketers – I’m always of 2 minds when I see articles about this topic. I believe anyone can remove all junk and fast food from their diet just by avoiding them but I also know that it is so tasty, cheap and ubiquitous that it is tough to avoid. This is where my innate Libertarianism comes into conflict with my desire to fix the problem, I’m not sure what the solution is besides more education.

How Big Tobacco Hooked Children on Sugary Drinks – This is a must read article about how the same tactics that convinced people to smoke cigarettes were used to hook people on sugar. The obvious common thread here is both tobacco and sugar are addictive but with sugar, you can get someone addicted almost immediately after weaning them instead of having to wait 18 years.

Could the high consumption of high glycaemic index carbohydrates and sugars, associated with the nutritional transition to the Western type of diet, be the common cause of the obesity epidemic and the worldwide increasing incidences of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes? – It’s a shame this paper didn’t get a mention in the Rogan debate.

Low protein diets produce divergent effects on energy balance – I am becoming more and more interested in the role of different protein levels on satiety and body composition. This is definitely something I would like to experiment with.

The Calorie Myth – A great article looking at the history of the calorie. The same author wrote a sequel here that is also interesting.

Eggs linked to increased cholesterol, risk of heart disease in new study – Ho hum, another day, another Vegan propaganda study. Yes eggs can raise cholesterol but no, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Death of the Calorie – Another look at how years of CICO has failed us all.

How diet became the latest front in the culture wars – Another look at that terrible EATLancet study and its attempted impact on culture.

Calcium in arteries is shown to increase patients’ imminent risk of a heart attack – No duh but it’s good to see it studied.

Extended Ketogenic Diet and Physical Training Intervention in Military Personnel – The effect of diet on the military is absolutely terrifying. SO glad to see someone looking at how to repair the damage.

Veganism, vegetarianism, bone mineral density, and fracture risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis. – Want your bones to crumble to dust? Easiest way to do that is to go vegan!

3/20 Weightloss Wednesday: Cut the Cheese

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday! As of this morning I am at 240.4 lbs so same ole, same ole.

After the test results I got last week made me feel a lot better about my blood pressure, I was able to get back on the horse as far as my exercise goes. I really cut back because I was afraid of spiking my BP and causing some damage but it looks like I didn’t have much to worry about.

I am back to my old routine of a 10 minute DDP Yoga warm up, Dr McGill’s back exercises, 5×5 Stronglifts or Kettlebell swings, and then a little jump roping. It’s nice to get back into that groove.

I have been considering making a small change to my diet as an experiment and then just yesterday I recorded a new episode for my podcast that won’t come out for a few weeks but really got me motivated to make this change. I interviewed Nick Paterson from LIHF Living and learned a ton about the effect of dairy on inflammation. I don’t want to give away the punchline (you will need to listen to the interview for that) but long story short, I am cutting out all dairy in April to see what happens. I’ve kind of tapered off a bit starting now as well but absolutely cutting it totally out next month.

Of course, I’ll keep you guys apprised of what happens but I’m excited to see the results. How did you do this week? Let me know in the comments below!

Does L-Arginine Supplementation Lower Blood Pressure?

In the last few weeks, I talked about how I worked to lower my blood pressure with the Ketogenic Diet and Magnesium. The next stop on my lengthy journey was to find out if L-Arginine supplementation would lower blood pressure.

Studies That Suggested L-Arginine Lowers Blood Pressure

There were 2 studies I found that suggested I was on the right track. The first was a very small study from May 2000 that was published in the American Journal of Hypertension. It assigned 6 people through 3 different isocaloric diets in random order; Diet 1 was a control diet, Diet 2 was one with L-Arginine enriched natural foods, and Diet 3 was the control diet with an added L-Arginine supplement. A small drop in blood pressure was recorded with both Diet 2 and 3, or the L-Arginine rich diets. Diet 3 which included the L-Arginine supplement even recorded a small drop in blood glucose levels.

There was another study published in the American Journal of Cardiology published a study where patients with angina where treated with L-Arginine supplements and it resulted in decreased angina and lower systolic blood pressure. Both of these studies convinced me that I needed to find out more about what L-Arginine was and how it worked.

The Link Between L-Arginine and Nitric Oxide

I found out that L-Arginine is a precursor to a molecule called Nitric Oxide and it is Nitric Oxide that works to lower blood pressure. It allows the endothelial layer of the blood vessels to relax, allowing for easier blood flow through the vessels.

My Conversation with Dr Peiper

My next step was to track down Dr Howard Pieper, an expert on Nitric Oxide who wrote a very popular book on the subject, Getting to Know NO, for my podcast. He was able to walk me through how to supplement L-Arginine and what foods I should be including in my diet in order to maximize the amount of Nitric Oxide I could produce.

Best L-Arginine Supplements

He recommended something called Munogen which is supposed the Rolls-Royce of Nitric Oxide supplements but it was well out of my price range. I found Dr Emil’s brand and was pretty happy with those. They are 1000 mg each and 90 pills per bottle. You are supposed to take 3 a day but I just took one and it seemed to work.

Best Nitric Oxide Producing Foods

The best foods for increasing Nitric Oxide levels in the blood are Red Spinach (something I had never heard of before my conversation with Dr Peiper), Beets, Garlic, Dark Chocolate, other leafy greens, citrus fruits, pomegranate, Nuts and Seeds, watermelon, red wine, celery, parsley, fennel, cabbage, and turnips.

Testing Nitric Oxide Levels

Unfortunately, there is no simple blood test you can do to figure out the direct effect of L-Arginine supplementation or eating certain foods has on your Nitric Oxide levels. The only thing you can do is adjust something and then test your blood pressure after a few days. If your BP goes down, you may be on to something.

My Results with L-Arginine

I wish I could tell you with some authority that I saw a drop in my BP but unfortunately, I was doing so many things to adjust my BP at the same time that it is hard to tell what happened as a result of just the L-Arginine supplementation. All I can tell you is it seemed to help a bit and it definitely didn’t hurt anything so I would definitely say L-Arginine supplementation lowers blood pressure.

Have you tried L-Arginine supplementation? I would love to know in the comments below!

What is Sugar Free and Keto Friendly at Cheesecake Factory

We are continuing our look at What is Sugar Free and Keto Friendly at Restaurants (<- Click that if you want to see the full list!) with a look at What’s Sugar Free and Keto Friendly at Cheesecake Factory. It has been YEARS since I’ve eaten here but there is one down the road a bit so I wanted to see what the options were in case I ever found myself in there.

The good news is that there are tons of options which figures because their menu is about the same size as your average Bible. The bad news is I couldn’t find a single sugar free cheesecake on the menu which kind of sucks. I mean, I make sugar free cheesecake every Thanksgiving, they are pretty simple to pull off.

So a few notes on what you can expect. If a salad says it comes with a vinaigrette, you will need to replace it with another dressing. They don’t appear to have a simple oil and vinegar option so Ranch dressing or Bleu Cheese might be the best thing to do there. Also, be sure to replace any carby sides like rice or potatoes with a vegetable like asparagus or spinach.

Now before we get to the full list of what is sugar free and keto friendly at Cheesecake Factory, here is a link to their website and to their menu.

3/14 Weightloss Wednesday: My Test Results are Back

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday! As of this morning, I am at 240.8 lbs so no movement on that front but I want to talk about the other aspects of my health.

Last week I talked about my fears about my blood pressure going up and how I thought I had a blocked renal artery. Well now I can say that is probably not the case. My kidney function is totally normal so a very low probability of any damage due to decreased blood flow.

When I went to get my blood pressure checked at the Dr, I was fully prepared for the very normal occurrence of a nurse checking my BP, freaking out because it is so incredibly high, and being sent to the hospital. That has happened enough times that I pretty much just stopped going to the Dr because what was the point. Medicines didn’t help and doctors didn’t want to do anything else.

This was my big surprise of the day, when I got my BP checked, it was only 161 over something. I know that sounds high but keep in mind that my home unit had been giving me Systolic numbers of north of 200 so that was a big change. When I discussed this with my new doctor, she said home units are notoriously unreliable, especially for men because the cuffs are too small. I got to thinking about what I was seeing and the sit down at the local pharmacy I was using to double check my numbers has a cuff so small I really have to jam my arm in there to get it to fit. Also, my BP started to increase once I started adding curls to my weight lifting routine so possibly the problem was that as I was growing my bicep, it was becoming too large for my little home BP checker. I mean, I would love to blame all this on my massive arms so I’m going to go ahead and say that’s what was going on.

However. let’s discuss all the other markers that came back because they are pretty stunning. An A1c of 5.3 which correlates to an average blood sugar of 105, both of which mean my blood sugar levels are low enough that I’m not damaging my pancreas but that 105 means that I am still a little insulin resistant. I’m wondering if I really commit to a weight lifting regimen if I can get that A1c down into the 4s. I’m also going to discuss taking Metformin prophylactically with her next time because of the data I’ve seen that says it is an almost universally advantageous drug.

Now let’s look at that cholesterol. What a mixed bag. Total cholesterol is 273, the doctors want it less than 200. I think that is a crazy low number and am not spending a second even thinking about that. I believe the marker that most correlates to possible cardiovascular disease is Trig:HDL where you never want your triglycerides to be more than double the HDL. Well my ratio is 1:1 with an incredibly high HDL of 89 and an incredibly low trig count of 88. That is amazing and a powerful testimony to what a long term Ketogenic diet can do.

And then that LDL. Docs want it lower than 130, mine is 166. Should I be concerned? I have really spent a lot of time looking into this, reading what Peter Attia and Tom Dayspring have to say and then looking at what people like Feldman and Kendrick have to say. While I think Attia and Dayspring would disagree with me, I’m going to say it’s not that big a deal. All other markers are good and heading in the right direction, my cholesterol is obviously in pattern A and there is no reason to think that this is an atherogenic level of “bad” cholesterol. Could be wrong, could drop dead of a heart attack tomorrow but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Also, my doc prescribed a calcium channel blocker for my BP but I’m not sure what it is doing to my BP because I don’t trust my home BP checker. I’m going to go back in a month to look at a few more things so I’ll let you know then what happens. The only thing I know for sure is that these results have put my mind at ease enough that I am going to get back to my regular exercise routine. I had pretty much tapered all that off because I was afraid I was going to give myself a stroke.

So how are things going for you this week? Let me know in the comments below!

How Magnesium Lowers Blood Pressure

Last week I talked about how a Ketogenic diet lowered my weight and blood pressure but I also talked about the fact that it didn’t lower my BP into the optimal range of 120/80 that I am shooting for. This week I’m going to discuss the other thing I did that had an effect on my blood pressure, taking a Magnesium supplement. Let’s see how Magnesium lowers blood pressure.

Magnesium Lowers Blood Pressure

Probably the best study that looked at the effect of Magnesium on Blood Pressure was a meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Hypertension in 2002. It looked at 20 studies that gave Magnesium doses of between 180 to 720 mg of Mg. he results on average were a very modest drop of 0.6 mm/Hg in the Systolic BP and 0.8 drop in the Diastolic. However, they also saw an addition drop of 4.3 mm/Hg in systolic and 2.3 mm/Hg in diastolic for each additional dose increase of 180 mg of magnesium per day. In short, the more you take, the better the results with an apparent cap at about 720 mg per day.

This is roughly in line with what I saw in my own blood pressure as I take about 400 mg per day and say about a 5-10 point drop in my BP. I also don’t seem to need to take it every day because I can skip a day or two and not see a rise in my BP but I haven’t done enough experimentation to see exactly what the limits of that are.

How Magnesium Lowers Blood Pressure

The exact mechanism magnesium uses to lower blood pressure isn’t known but it appears to work by relaxing the muscles around the blood vessels, allowing more freedom of movement with the vessels. This allows the vessels to expand to greater extent as the heart pumps. The decrease in resistance allows the heart to do less work, which lowers the pressure in the vessels.

How I Supplemented Magnesium to Lower Blood Pressure

The supplementation was a little tricky because I learned that just grabbing the cheap Magnesium Citrate from the grocery store did nothing for me. I needed a wide spectrum Magnesium supplement and I found one from Pure Vitamin Club that worked amazingly well. It’s cheap and I can get a subscription so I don’t have to remember to buy a new bottle every 90 days.

Another method I used that worked very well was pouring 2 cups of Epsom Salts in a warm bath and soaking for about 20 minutes. Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer so ending the day with a warm Epsom salt bath could also help you go to sleep faster and sleep more soundly.

Have you seen any success with Magnesium supplementation? I would love to know if you’ve seen Magnesium lower your blood pressure. Tell me about it in the comments below!
