Cannabidiol 101 - What is CBD, Why CBD & Benefits of CBD.

Cannabidiol is just one of the many cannabinoids found in hemp as well as cannabis! Wait… cannabis, like pot? Yes - CBD is one of the many elements to take away from the cannabis plant, however Inflamade® only uses pure CBD derived from Hemp - meaning there is no THC, and no psychoactive effects. The reason you get 
”high” effects is because of the other cannabinoids like Delta 9 THC mixed with CBG, CBN, Terpenes, THC-A, THC - V as well as about 110 others that are found in cannabis! Coming from hemp (not cannabis plants), our CBD was never even a part of this conversation- so rest easy knowing that you won’t fail any drug tests, get any unwanted highs, or experience racy thoughts with our products!

Why CBD?

Over the years, aside from ourselves, we have met many people, as well as their furry friends who are benefitting from the use of Pure CBD! It can have healing and anti - inflammatory properties that could leave your body in a better place than before you started using it! CBD is a non intoxicating compound. It’s applications are vast, and people from all walks and ailments use CBD to help ease the pain as well as a champion on the road to recovery and wellness!

CBD can sometimes be used for different ailments. You can see here what Harvard has to say about it. Although all of the research hasn’t been completed to prove such things- the vast usage across the wellness fields over the last few years speaks volumes. Google “kid seizure CBD” and have a field day. 

One of our favorite videos out there is this one:

See the kid smile almost instantly? It’s been used in mild forms as an uplifting property - not only reducing stress and anxiety - but sometimes acting as a mood booster in people and their pets alike.

One of our favorite stories is of a 18 year old cat! One of our friends said that the cat just was not the same without having its CBD. As the cat got older, it became more lethargic and would refuse to eat. Enter CBD, the cat is on its 10th life and better than its been before! Moving around with ease and eating like a growing kitten! It’s suggested that animals should have .5 - 5mg per 10lbs. Most pet care companies recommend 0.5 to 5 milligrams of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. 

Here’s a rundown of the recommended starting dose for your pet according to his or her weight:

  • 5 pounds: 0.25 milligrams
  • 10 pounds: 0.5 milligrams
  • 20 pounds: 1 milligram
  • 40 pounds: 2 milligrams
  • 60 pounds: 3 milligrams
  • 80 pounds: 4 milligrams
  • 100 pounds: 5 milligrams
  • 120 pounds: 6 milligrams

Start here and increase with .5-1mg per day after 3 days if you don’t see symptoms improve, and increase to find the sweet spot that your pet needs for optimal health! It takes pets and humans alike around 7 days to begin feeling noticeable health improvements internally (other than the mood boosting - stress relieving effects) so don’t get discouraged if your furry friend isn’t back to 100% after its first run-in with CBD! *These statements have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA. 

Like our pets, we were built with cannabinoid receptors in our brain and throughout our nervous system! This is paramount in explaining how our bodies react with this natural plant medicine! CBD can play a part in helping you on the road to recovery. Taking it nightly may combat inflammation. It's up to you to test the right amount of CBD to help improve focus, memory, as well as boost your mood!

Anxiety is an emotion that sometimes takes control of all of us. It's normal to worry and fear for the unknown. How about relieving the stress from some terrible times we may have experienced or are currently going through? For those that need help controlling their thoughts and their endless reactions to those thoughts, whether it is preparing for a big meeting, or thinking of all the things to do tomorrow before bed, CBD may divert you from your restless ways. It can help throughout those sleepless nights leaving you recharged and ready to take on the day in the morning! A small dose of our Pure CBD droppers (5-10mg) with coffee or tea in the morning should help you get on your way!

Try our Destress Capsules for other benefits including the help of GABA, Mucuna, L - Theanine, Ashwagandha, Kava Kava, Magnesium, and Theobromine. These natural plant based herbs have been shown to sometimes help everything from stress and anxiety, to improving blood flow, and lowering blood pressure, improving coordination, memory, strength, libido, and have given aid to some with premenstrual syndrome!*


CBD combats anxiety and stress and is safe to dose throughout the day for maintenance. In fact, sometimes THC can overexcite the neural pathway leading to paranoia. When this happens, CBD can reduce some of the THC High effects!*

CBD can also be a sleep aid, pain reliever, and a source for PTSD relief as well. 

Recent studies have been done on PTSD and concussion patients. By reducing inflammation and activating our Endocannabinoid system, it is said to help reduce the adverse effects caused by “bad memories.”

“Since the discovery of the involvement of the endocannabinoid (eCB) system in emotional memory processing, pharmacological manipulation of eCB signaling has become a therapeutic possibility for the treatment of PTSD. Cannabidiol (CBD), a phytocannabinoid constituent of Cannabis sativa without the psychoactive effects of THCl, has gained particular attention. Preclinical studies in different rodent behavioral models have shown that CBD can both facilitate the extinction of aversive memories and block their reconsolidation, possibly through potentialization of the eCB system. These results, combined with the currently available pharmacological treatments for PTSD being limited, necessitated testing CBD use with the same therapeutic purpose in humans as well. Indeed, as observed in rodents, recent studies have confirmed the ability of CBD to alter important aspects of aversive memories in humans and promote significant improvements in the symptomatology of PTSD” - NCBI. 

Trauma? Try CBD - it can potentially help to regulate your body - as a normal frequent to cannabinoids found in our immune system, it can help balance your body so that it can fight inflammation, and also help you forget and move on from a hard times past. 

With the right treatment of CBD one can hope to aid pain, feeling uplifted. CBD can sometimes help to bring inner peace and from those recovering from concussions, and once again anxiety, PTSD.* A great start is our Pure CBD / Sleepade Drops. It’s composed of Pure CBD, so dose accordingly to meet your needs!

Sleep issues? Try CBD - again helping one relax at night is a main part of how CBD can help. Taking the edge off, reducing those racy thoughts, and helping you stay asleep or fall back asleep in the middle of the night are just a few things CBD has done for people all over the world. We have helped people stop using Ambien for sleep - but natural CBD instead. Need that extra strength stuff? Well, our Pure CBD Melatonin Drops are a great place to start. Rest easy, live well.*
