Is CBD safe for kids??

cbd oil, CBD Safe for Kids?

Is CBD safe for kids?? This is a huge topic especially for those parents with sick children and are at their wits end on what to try. Have a little read from the article I found on puregreen living and decide for yourself

Is It Safe?

CBD oil has been gaining lots of attention when it comes to helping children with autism, sensory processing disorders, anxiety disorders, insomnia, epilepsy and more, and there are many studies, as well as scientific evidence showing that CBD oil can be of benefit for various kinds of health issues affecting children.

Many sites document successful experiments in treating children using CBD Oil. Although more research still needs to be done, findings so far indicate that CBD is safe for children.

Children are actually exposed to external sources of cannabinoids quite frequently, even as early as birth through their mother’s breast milk which is an abundant source of endocannabinoids, and which assists with infant development. So cannabinoids are not new to the body system of a child, and it has had a huge role to play in child development.

CBD oil is known to assist the body in creating more of its own cannabinoids which in turn aid the body in operating properly. We should note that CBD is a form of Cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. It’s different from another Cannabinoid known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the ingredient that gives that high or stoned feeling when ingested.

Since there are no psychoactive properties in a true CBD hemp oil, children are not at risk of getting that “high” feeling associated with cannabis products heavy in the cannabinoid cousin THC. So you don’t have to worry about your children experiencing that high feeling, should you use CBD oil on them.

Existing CBD Use On Children

CBD oil has been used for children with health issues. In countries like the United States, Australia, Brazil, Israel, the United Kingdom and Ireland, success stories involving administering CBD oil for kids abound.

One of them is the famous story of Charlotte Figi who was given CBD oil to help calm her seizures. Charlotte was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome, a condition which causes seizures and paralysis in the body.  She was experiencing more than 300 epileptic seizures every week and she could neither move, talk nor eat on her own. When doctors ran out of solutions, her mother purchased CBD Oil at a local marijuana dispensary, and this totally changed their lives.

Charlotte’s seizures fell to fewer than one episode per week, and she stayed virtually seizure free throughout the entire first week of treatment. Due to the success in calming her seizures, the cannabis strain was named in her honor and it’s often used to treat chronic pain, anxieties, seizures, and stress among both children and adults.

Another is the story of Katelyn Lambert in Australia, whose grandfather was so thrilled by the effectiveness of CBD oil in lowering his granddaughter’s seizures that he donated $34 million (Aus) to medical cannabis research.

Then there’s the story of Ava Barry in Ireland, who like Charlotte was also diagnosed with Dravet syndrome. She had already been sent home by doctors, who had told her parents that there was nothing else they could do.  But her parents wouldn’t give up, and after researching on the internet, they started giving Ava CBD oil, which reduced her seizures by over 80%. Apart from the notable reduction in seizures, Ava’s parents also saw a noticeable improvement in her overall well being and cognitive ability.  “she was standing up straighter” her mother says. “She was making more eye contact and the next thing, in a family joke, Ava was giggling just like the other kids. She had never laughed like that before.

Final Thoughts

As of now, since research has not proven otherwise, there is absolutely no harm in administering CBD oil to children who really need it. It has been said to be completely safe as it doesn’t cause stunted growth either physically or mentally.

Studies have shown that CBD is a safe alternative for children who need medication. This was made official by the World Health Organization in December 2017 after conducting extensive research. The WHO stated that it found no adverse risks in using CBD, and proclaimed it as of “relatively low toxicity” and having “a good safety profile”.

For parents of sick children with seizures and other related disorders who seem to have run out of solutions and medications, CBD Oil drop is worth a try.

Buteyko Breathing

Breathing Techniques

Listening to Ben Greenfield at A fest give out some amazing hacks from ancient snd modern science about how to live life at an optimal level and one of his many many strategies is Buteyko Breathing.

So I started researching and practicing this type of breathing.

Bullet Proof Dave asprey had Buteyko therapist and author Patrick Mckeown on his podcast talking and demonstrating the techniques. It was such a fascinating podcast.

In the 1950s, Russian scientist Dr. Konstantin Buteyko identified over 150 disorders which could be resolved by normalising the breathing, and spent the next three decades developing breathiing exercises and strategies to achieve this.

The Buteyko Method of breathing re-training has now been taught over the past 20 years as a highly effective, drug-free education process which helps normalise and improve the breathing, reducing the symptoms of many common disorders. By learning the method, you can experience the medical benefits already enjoyed by thousands of people worldwide:

upto 70% less coughing, breathlessness & wheezing

reduced need for medication

improved sleep and quality of life

enhanced ability for exercise

How to do it?

A useful tool with Buteyko breathing is a simple concept called the control pause. The control pause provides feedback about your relative breathing volume. To obtain an accurate measurement, please rest for 10 minutes before measuring.

  1. Take a small, silent breath in through your nose and allow a small silent breath out through your nose.
  2. Hold your nose with your fingers to prevent air from entering your lungs.
  3. Count the number of seconds until you feel the first definite desire to breathe.
  4. At the first definite desire to breathe in, you may also feel the first involuntary movements of your breathing muscles. Your tummy may jerk and the area around your neck may contract.
  5. Your inhalation at the end of the breath should be calm.
  6. Release your nose and breathe in through it.

Remember that taking your control pause entails holding your breath only until you feel the first involuntary movements of your breathing muscles, or the first stress of your body telling you to “breathe.” If you had to take a big breath at the end of the breath hold, then you held your breath for too long.

A very good control pause amounts to 40 seconds, and a good control pause amounts to 30 seconds. A control pause of 25 seconds indicates room for improvement, while a control pause of 15 seconds or less is indicative of symptoms such as respiratory complaints (asthma, wheezing, coughing, chest tightness or nasal problems), sleep disordered breathing (insomnia, fatigue, snoring, or obstructive sleep apnea) or anxiety complaints (excessive worrying, high stress levels, poor concentration) or any other condition resulting from chronic overbreathing. The significance of the control pause for asthma is explained in the video below.

The good news is that you will feel better each time your control pause increases by five seconds, and the first step to increase your control pause is to learn to breathe through your nose both day and night.

Cbd oil for menopause.

CBD for Menopause and PMT

There are cannabinoid receptors in all areas of the female reproductive organs, including both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Given what we already know about CBD’s influence over these receptors, it’s a logical assumption to believe that CBD could help reduce the signs and symptoms of menopause through interaction in the highly concentrated areas of endocannabinoid receptors.

During menopause, women find it increasingly difficult to sleep. Hot flashes, mood swings and overall discomfort continually disrupt a healthy sleep cycle. Soon, this lack of sleep trickles down into other areas of a woman’s life and eventually increases the severity of all menopausal symptoms.

There is a growing body of research indicating that both CBD, THC and other cannabinoids are beneficial for improved sleep quality. While CBD itself may trigger a mild increase in wakefulness when taken before bed, CBD still facilitates a better and longer nights rest.

Bone Density Loss

Bone density naturally starts to decrease during menopause. In some circumstances, it can lead to future issues with osteoporosis and bone fragility. It’s common for doctors to prescribe ERT simply for the possible improvements to bone density. But, as we’ve discussed, ERT is not always a perfect long-term solution.

Cannabidiol, THCV, CBG, and CBC all are potential candidates for protecting against bone loss. In fact, these specific cannabinoids are known to stimulate bone growth. Cannabidiol, among the other cannabinoids, may represent a perfect alternative to ERT therapy for those women worried about bone density loss.

Mood Stabilizer

Alongside the inevitable hot flashes, the associated menopausal mood swings are an equally taxing part of hormonal changes. As hormones change, it changes the way women process and manage their stress levels. A woman’s body continues to operate as per usual, but with an endocannabinoid deficiency. Its suddenly not as easy to process stress, anger, and daily pressures.

Thankfully, cannabinoids are already making incredible inroads as a powerful replacement to traditional SSRI drugs. It’s a logical next step to bring the mood stabilizing capabilities of CBD, already evidenced for treating depression and anxiety, into the realm of menopausal women.

What is cbd Oil

cbd oil

CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular amongst the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits – due to clinical reports and mounds of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psychoactivity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC).

Order Now

Cannabidiol (CBD) is not only a major phytocannabinoid, it is the most concentrated form from the three main cannabis plants. The three main forms to use cannabis are Hashish, Resin, & Oil.

Phytocannabinoids

With our HempWorx line, our products utilize a Full Spectrum CBD formulated with Hemp Seed Oil. For the first time in 1964, CBD isolation was reported and it was the beginning of cannabinoid synthesisation. Originally, this synthesis started on CBG, but since CBG is present in most of the Cannabis types in small amounts, the majority of the research was concentrated on THC and CBD. Besides the Cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in nature, pharmaceutical companies have synthesized cannabinoid compounds in order to market leading drugs in the pharmaceutical market. Some of these chemically modified drugs do not have psychoactive effects, but retain some of the health benefits from the cannabinoid properties. However, some of these synthetic drugs can have a life-threatening adverse effect, or cause other issues in the human body. Phytocannabinoids, on the other hand, have been used for many years, and no life-threatening side effects have ever been reported. Find out more

How does CBD work in the human body?

CBD or cannabidiol is the main active compound in hemp, and unlike THC, it is not psychoactive, so it doesn’t make people high. As you know, inside the human body there’s the endocannabinoid system, with receptors spread throughout the brain and body.

HempWorx CBD Oil and Children with Migraines

HempWorx CBD Oil update from a child perspective. Jay always has headaches. Not a day goes by he doesn’t complain about his head hurting and begging for medicine (and he hates medicine). He gets bad migraines which I believe I passed on to him (sorry buddy). Today I gave him 4 drops of cbd oil and no headache, plus he likes the taste of it!

She’s had migraines since she was 10, but now she’s getting relief!

I’ve had migraines since I was 10 years old. Mine are the rare type that come with a severe aura. The pain is excruciating and the whole experience is very debilitating. The aura usually lasts over an hour (if I’m lucky enough to take my prescription at the onset)
and the pain can last for days. I also have extreme sensitivity to noise and light. Since starting HempWorx CBD oil in July, I have only had 2 migraines and they were both weather related. Not bad since I averaged 1 per week. Last night, I had a sudden fullblown 1-19-1.jpgmigraine. I would usually take one of two prescription medications: Maxalt or Naproxen 500mg. I decided to take only CBD oil to test the effect on my migraine. I took 20 drops of the 500 mg and a glass of water. The aura was full-blown with zigzags and
severe pain behind my left eye. The pain on my forehead and temples became very intense. I decided to rub some of the HempWorx Relief pain cream on both areas as well. Within 30 minutes (my daughter was checking for me), the aura had ceased and the pain behind my left eye was already dissipating. As I was lying in my dark room, I was aware that I had no nausea and that my temples were no longer throbbing. It was about a total of an hour and then I came downstairs to help my daughter get organized for school. My eyes were still sensitive but the pain had gone from a 10 to a 3! I was able to function and
my daughter was shocked and very happy. She has witnessed her mother suffer through these for years! CBD oil has changed my life. I will never be without it. I’ve also had fibromyalgia for 26 years and will soon be writing my personal testimonial for that. Let’s
just say that I have weaned off 4 out of 5 of my prescription medications and that was within 30 days! This stuff really works and I became an affiliate to share it with others so that they can stop suffering too!

Mindful Breathing

meditation

Mindfulness Breathing

Breathing is something that we all do, all of the time – yet we are often not aware of how it feels in the moment. By bringing our focus intentionally onto the breath we can ground ourselves in what is happening right now.

We can practice observing without reacting, experiencing each breath as it happens without feeling a need to change it.

You can do this exercise for just a few minutes, or for longer periods. Although the intention is to focus on the breath, you will begin to experience how unfocused our minds can be!

You may find that your mind wanders a hundred times, or just a few. It is okay for this to happen and it doesn’t mean that you are doing anything wrong. When you notice your mind has wandered, gently but firmly bring your attention back to the breath.

Mindfulness of breath

Preparation

Sit or lie in a comfortable position. You may choose to close your eyes or keep them open, if you are feeling tired it may be useful to let just a little bit of light in to keep you alert.

The Breath

Begin by gently moving your attention onto the process of breathing. Notice the sensations of each breath as it happens, whether you focus on the rise and fall of your chest or abdomen, or on the feeling of the breath at the nostrils. Really feel what it is like to breath, just observing it as it happens.

As you engage in this exercise you may find that your mind wanders, caught by thoughts or by noises in the room, or bodily sensations. When you notice that this happens, know that this is okay, and simply notice the distraction but gently bring your attention back to the breath.

Ending the exercise

Take a few moments to yourself, connecting with your experience in the present moment. Expand your awareness from the breath into the space around you, and as you feel comfortable to do so, opening your eyes and bringing the exercise to a close.

Reflections

Take a few moments to think about what your experience was in this exercise, and how you feel in the present moment.

CBD OIL FOR AUTISM AND ADHD

cbd oil

Have you tried HempWorx CBD Oil for Autism and ADHD? Could this be the product parents have been searching for as an organic alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals?

Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders, affecting 1 in 68 children in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s debilitating symptoms include impaired communication and social skills, along with compulsive and repetitive behaviours. Autism typically emerges in infancy or early childhood.

pizap-23ADHD and ADD involves, lack of attention, increased activity and difficulty controlling behaviour, among other things. 30-50% of children diagnosed with ADHD continue to have symptoms continuing into adulthood. Stimulant medication is often prescribed to children showing signs of ADHD. For any parent with a child diagnosed with ADHD and Autism, it can be frustrating to find something that helps them deal with every day struggles. Every trip to the doctor seems to lead to another prescription, thus resulting in more nasty side effects like lack of appetite, inability to sleep and sometimes even the appearance of being ‘drugged’.
It can be very difficult for parents of kids with ADHD and autism, due to a lack of resources, support and the fact that there is no cure. Parents continue to search for a natural product that will help their child without having the bad side effects of prescription drugs. Many parents have turned to CBD Oil because they have found it helps. CBD oil can be taken for a wide variety of health issues in kids, not just ADHD or autism.
HempWorx CBD Oil Review and testimonies for Autism and ADHD
Amazing results with nonverbal autism! Able to talk without any problems!
“My daughter was at one time diagnosed with nonverbal autism. I was told by 7 different doctors to institutionalize her and that I would never be able to care for her for her symptoms were too severe. She was very frustrated because of her inability to communicate, presenting unwanted behaviors that led to injury. She went from a 12 word vocabulary to not speaking over night and remained silent about 3 years. We tried many
things and once we found the truth about what is needed for the brain to function properly her speech recovered quickly AND she had retained all we continued to teach her through her non speaking years. She had retained it all.
Today my daughter is much happier and laughs a lot, due to the fact that she can finally express herself. Today, my daughter is very social, very verbal and would rather be surrounded by and engaging with others.
Dr. Giovanni Martinez, a clinical psychologist from Puerto Rico, looking to eliminate the symptoms of autism decided to check out the therapeutic effects provided by CBD oil. He is pleased to say that this treatment is providing great results. “In one particular case, after treating an autistic child with hemp oil two times a day, for three weeks, the child went from non-verbal to speaking his first words and, later on, developing excellent language skills.” Just like my daughter.
I love that Hempworx offers a full spectrum CBD (CBD, CBC, CBN, CBG) and contains almost no THC. It’s easy for my daughter to take and I love knowing that her ENTIRE Endocannabinoid System is being feed. We made other dietary changes designed to support the function of the brain, nervous system and muscles. This was a quick turn around for us as it was with Dr. Martinez’s patient mentioned above. Two years after my
daughter began speaking again she said to me; “mom, do you remember when I would talk to you and dad and you all could not hear me?” UGH…I cried. We got our girl back and you too can get you child back.”
Better attitude and less impulsive!
“Last night was make or break for my son. He has ADHD and normally does not like to be in situations involving people for an extended period of time. In fact, he NEVER does anything with friends because he says he doesn’t trust himself with his rage and anxiety outbursts. He’s been on Hempworx for 2weeks and in that time we’ve seen dramatic changes in his temperament and behavior overall.
Last night he was at a group sleepover, which for one he doesn’t get invited to and two, he doesn’t go cuz it usually ends in disaster. I was on pins and needles all night, but no call or text from him whatsoever. In fact his friend’s mom told me at one point in the night he was all giggly and having a great time. Long story short he ended up spending the night and stayed until late morning. When I picked him up he said he had an awesome time. My dream for him became reality, he’s finally able to live like a typical teenage boy. I cried. My son is forever changed because of Hempworx. Thank you for giving us our son back.
