CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol which is a chemical compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. It contains untraceable amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive element in marijuana which means CBD will NOT get you “high.” In addition, you will not fail any drug tests since these tests do not detect such low levels of THC. Over the past four decades, there have been numerous studies conducted that highlight the potential benefits of CBD.
Hemp goes back as one of the oldest crops in human history. Why is it so popular? For starters, it requires half the water (even less for some crops!)  of wheat and can be grown without pesticides. For health enthusiasts or anyone generally considerate of the environment, this is a great news. This crop can then be used for nutrition as a great fiber source! The whole seeds are healthy for complete proteins and omegas, concentrated antioxidants, vitamins, and other healthy nutrients. Outside of the United States, hemp is grown as an industrial crop on a large scale. In Europe, for example, we reviewed over 3,000 cultivars before selecting the right farm for us. 
In psychiatric social work there are three distinct groups. One made up of the social workers in psychiatric organizations and hospitals. The second group consists members interested with mental hygiene education and holding designations that involve functioning in various mental health services and the third group consist of individuals involved directly with treatment and recovery process.[85]
Re Brandon16210 and the FDA warning list. I found the FDA warning list (2016) one of the most useful things I have read on CBD. It seemed the FDA were fussing about labelling and claims more than anything. They sent warning letters to CBD companies about non-compliance in this regard. However, they also, very kindly, published a list of test results for quite a few popular companies. Some had no CBD at all in their CBD oil. This seemed to be of no interest whatsoever to the FDA (again, they were in a tiz about the labels) but it is very useful for us consumers. Charlotte's Web was in trouble for the claims they make and for their 'Realm of Caring' website not being transparent about its commercial connections. Personally, the one and only thing I care about in regards to buying CBD products is - what is in the bottle. And, dear Consumer Lab, this is hopefully where you will come in, and give us some guidance. The sooner the better. Please.
It’s also important to select CBD oil products based on your concentration preferences. Some forms of CBD oil – such as vapors and tinctures – normally have higher-than-average concentrations, whereas sprays and topicals tend to have lower concentrations. Remember: higher concentration means more pronounced effects, but not necessarily mean higher quality.
Mental health is conventionally defined as a hybrid of absence of a mental disorder and presence of well-being. Focus is increasing on preventing mental disorders. Prevention is beginning to appear in mental health strategies, including the 2004 WHO report "Prevention of Mental Disorders", the 2008 EU "Pact for Mental Health" and the 2011 US National Prevention Strategy.[39][40][page needed] Some commentators have argued that a pragmatic and practical approach to mental disorder prevention at work would be to treat it the same way as physical injury prevention.[41]
For legal reason I can’t make any claims that our product will treat or cure your neuropathy or any other medical diagnosis. However, If you do your research on google you may find a tie between full spectrum hemp oil and Neuropathy. Our product is great for assisting with pain, inflammation and stress. If you are feeling pain or experiencing inflammation you should try our product. Now if you have serious pain I would suggest our premium hemp oil drops at 5x strength.

Psychiatric social workers conduct psychosocial assessments of the patients and work to enhance patient and family communications with the medical team members and ensure the inter-professional cordiality in the team to secure patients with the best possible care and to be active partners in their care planning. Depending upon the requirement, social workers are often involved in illness education, counseling and psychotherapy. In all areas, they are pivotal to the aftercare process to facilitate a careful transition back to family and community. [88]


The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services suggests that consumers should prioritize eating a variety of nutritious foods over taking dietary supplements. No dietary supplement should take the place of a healthful diet. That being said, the agency does allow that some supplements can help support overall health and provide people with the nutrients they need. For instance, vitamin D and calcium help strengthen bones and omega-3 fatty acids may help some who have heart disease.
Routine diagnostic practice in mental health services typically involves an interview known as a mental status examination, where evaluations are made of appearance and behavior, self-reported symptoms, mental health history, and current life circumstances. The views of other professionals, relatives or other third parties may be taken into account. A physical examination to check for ill health or the effects of medications or other drugs may be conducted. Psychological testing is sometimes used via paper-and-pen or computerized questionnaires, which may include algorithms based on ticking off standardized diagnostic criteria, and in rare specialist cases neuroimaging tests may be requested, but such methods are more commonly found in research studies than routine clinical practice.[79][80]
Activity therapies, also called recreation therapy and occupational therapy, promote healing through active engagement. Making crafts can be a part of occupational therapy. Walks can be a part of recreation therapy. In recent years colouring has been recognised as an activity which has been proven to significantly lower the levels of depressive symptoms and anxiety in many studies.[70]

This article has many errors. “Hemp” means cannabis grown for fibre, but it also means cannabis grown for seed. So while it is true that fibre hemp “looks similar to bamboo,” hemp grown for seed has big buds and looks just like “marijuana.” Seed hemp is grown in a similar manner to marijuana, with plants more spaced out. These plants produce much more resin, at comparable levels to any other outdoor-grown cannabis. If these “hemp” strains for seed production were grown exactly the same as they are now, but they were not fertilized by male plants, they would be an excellent source of resin for CBD and also other cannabinoids. Even when they do go to seed, they still produce plentiful resin with a good level of cannabinoids.

Depending on which hormone is stimulated, cannabis can boost or suppress appetite. For this reason, cannabis oil can help patients with eating disorders or be a natural way to treat obesity. This manipulation of the cannabinoid system is becoming popular, and more research is being done to determine its efficacy for patients with weight concerns. (6)
Marijuana-derived CBD products, on the other hand, don’t enjoy the same luxuries. Because it has been derived from THC-rich marijuana, marijuana-derived CBD, even its isolated from, is considered as a byproduct of marijuana and is judged accordingly. In some states, marijuana-derived CBD is completely legal, while in others, it is completely illegal, but in most states, its a bit of a mixed bag, each state having CBD-specific laws.

On Apr. 11, 2014, Gov. Steve Beshear signed SB 124 into law, making Kentucky the third state to legalize CBD oil. On Mar. 12, Kentucky's Senate unanimously approved the bill, sponsored by Republican Sen. Julie Denton. On Mar, 26, the House did the same. The new law alows the University of Kentucky and University of Louisville med schools to conduct research into CBD oil and provide it to patients enrolled in the trial program.


According to the case report, it was charted by the girl’s oncologist that the patient “suffers from terminal malignant disease. She has been treated to the limits of available therapy … no further active intervention will be undertaken.” She was then placed in a palliative home care and told to prepare for her disease to overwhelm her body. She was expected to suffer a stroke within the next two months.
CBD does not appear to have any psychotropic ("high") effects such as those caused by ∆9-THC in marijuana, but may have anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic effects.[10] As the legal landscape and understanding about the differences in medical cannabinoids unfolds, experts are working to distinguish "medical marijuana" (with varying degrees of psychotropic effects and deficits in executive function) – from "medical CBD therapies” which would commonly present as having a reduced or non-psychoactive side-effect profile.[10][59]

This legal ambiguity can cause problems. In April, Shopify, an e-commerce site, dropped Treatibles, a company that sells phytocannabinoid products for pets. Treatibles sent out notices to customers via email and social media, encouraging them to write letters, citing the 2014 Farm Bill as evidence that “phytocannabinoids from hemp are legal to produce and ship across state lines.” (That statement directly contradicts what the DEA told me.)

The situation isn’t much better in the UK; there are so many legal grey areas surrounding cannabis in hemp and CBD form that nobody knows the full extent of the law today. CBD oil is completely legal in the UK, but there is apparent illegality surrounding the possession of hemp flowers. This article is a good read for looking at cannabis laws (including hemp and CBD) in the UK


The recognition and understanding of mental health conditions have changed over time and across cultures and there are still variations in definition, assessment and classification, although standard guideline criteria are widely used. In many cases, there appears to be a continuum between mental health and mental illness, making diagnosis complex.[35]:39 According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over a third of people in most countries report problems at some time in their life which meet criteria for diagnosis of one or more of the common types of mental disorder.[108] Mental health can be defined as an absence of mental disorder.
It is not always clear when a problem with mood or thinking has become serious enough to be a mental health concern. Sometimes, for example, a depressed mood is normal, such as when a person experiences the loss of a loved one. But if that depressed mood continues to cause distress or gets in the way of normal functioning, the person may benefit from professional care. Family or friends may recognize changes or problems that a person doesn’t see in themselves.
Our CBD oil is lab-tested as soon as it is extracted and then again by a third party lab (Steep Hill) in Berkeley, California, to ensure an accurate amount of CBD.

We use cutting-edge testing and world-class equipment to ensure that our products are safe and healthy. Please contact us for current lab test results.
Some states offer cannabis for medical conditions, and this may require a medical note or proof of injury and illness. You can also join a collective, which is a group of patients who grow and share medical cannabis with each other. If you are using cannabis oil, it’s so important to make sure it’s purchased through a reputable company that sells pure and lab-tested oils. If you’re wondering how to make cannabis oil, you should first make sure this is legal in your state. Some people also like to make cannabis coconut oil, which is basically cannabis-infused coconut oil.

Ancient civilizations described and treated a number of mental disorders. Mental illnesses were well known in ancient Mesopotamia,[123] where diseases and mental disorders were believed to be caused by specific deities.[124] Because hands symbolized control over a person, mental illnesses were known as "hands" of certain deities.[124] One psychological illness was known as Qāt Ištar, meaning "Hand of Ishtar".[124] Others were known as "Hand of Shamash", "Hand of the Ghost", and "Hand of the God".[124] Descriptions of these illnesses, however, are so vague that it is usually impossible to determine which illnesses they correspond to in modern terminology.[124] Mesopotamian doctors kept detailed record of their patients' hallucinations and assigned spiritual meanings to them.[123] The royal family of Elam was notorious for its members frequently suffering from insanity.[123] The Greeks coined terms for melancholy, hysteria and phobia and developed the humorism theory. Mental disorders were described, and treatments developed, in Persia, Arabia and in the medieval Islamic world.
“Every day, I get a pitch or two for new CBD products,” says Rosemary Donahue, Allure magazine’s wellness editor. In recent months, she has seen the products start to shift away from supplements and toward “beverages, like coffee and seltzers, and even chocolates.” These products provide an easier point of entry for the casually curious: You may not want to order a vial of weird-tasting oil from a company you’ve never heard of online, but spending $3 to squirt some CBD into your daily latte feels pretty low-stakes. Even Coca-Cola is reported to be looking into the CBD-beverage business.
Our products are made by infusing extract from hemp into them.   Many brands use only cbd that has been removed from the extract.  It is much less inexpensive to use CBD Isolate in the making of products.  (“CBD Isolate” is cbd that has been removed from the extract)  However, Highland Pharms CBD Hemp Oil products receive only Full Spectrum CBD Extract.  This means you get the CBD  –  PLUS all the other cannabinoids  –  when you use our products.  Full Spectrum means that the full spectrum of cannabinoids (like CBC, CBG, CBN, etc) along with all the hundreds of phytonutrients are still in our products.

New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg has written 13 novels and five nonfiction titles, and has produced multiple documentaries. He has also served as a communications advisor for a number of U.S. and Israeli leaders, and is the founder and chairman of global Christian organization, The Joshua Fund. Drawing on his heritage, depth of studies, and political experience in the Middle East, Joel Rosenberg has crafted numerous gripping thrillers including his upcoming release, The Persian Game.


The reason why hemp oils would not be expected to contain much CBD is that hemp oil is typically made from hemp seeds (i.e., hempseed oil), which contain little CBD. CBD is not found within in the seed (although some may contaminate the surface); it is principally found in the flowers and, to a lesser extent, the upper leaves of the hemp plant. A "CBD oil" product is typically an oil, such as from hemp seed or other sources, to which a CBD extract (from hemp flowers) has been added (Mead, Epilepsy & Behavior 2017). [NOTE: In February 2018, ConsumerLab.com published its Review of CBD and Hemp Oils and Pills, providing tests, comparisons, and reviews of popular CBD-containing supplements, such as oils and capsules, for people and pets, and updated information about CBD. CL also tested hempseed oils as part of its review of seed oil supplements as sources of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.] 
Starting an extraction business comes with the same hurdles as any weed company. This means creating a supply chain management system, grappling with banking difficulties and navigating strict real estate regulations. Plus, extraction comes with the added price tag of buying the right equipment. A CO2 extraction machine typically costs a minimum of $150,000. Combined with rent and other equipment requirements, starting an extraction business has more than half a million dollars in startup costs. 

As we’ve outlined, Cannabidiol, or CBD, has receptors throughout your body, called the endocannabinoid system. Human beings can supplement this CBD system to aid and strengthen the immune system and other functions. Just like you may take vitamin c from an orange to supplement your health, CBD intake improves your endocannabinoid system and overall health. The increasing prevalence of CBD oils for the management and treatment of various illnesses has inspired cannabis breeders to propagate certain strains. The goal of manufacturers is to yield hemp plants with higher CBD to THC ratios to minimize, if not, eliminate, the psychoactive side effects caused by THC. According to research, the best source of high-quality CBD derives from organically grown cannabis with up to 20% CBD concentration by dry weight.
Although it’s a relatively new product in the CBD hemp oil industry, CBD isolate extraction and CBD isolate ingestion is taking the cannabinoid market by storm, becoming increasingly popular with retail customers, formulators, and wholesalers alike. Its many uses and applications in this unmodified form are almost endless and its versatility unparalleled. Plus, you are put in complete control of exactly how much CBD goes into each serving but not matter how much you use it will not get you high.

Anyone who wants a safe, natural health supplement can use CBD. Some people take it just to boost their body’s systems and balance their general health. Others take it to treat specific ailments, such as anxiety, pain, inflammation, and even epilepsy and some nerve and muscle afflictions. While the FDA has approved CBD oil and it shouldn’t be considered a medicine, an increasing number of people all over the world have discovered the healing properties of high CBD liquid. Everyone wonders what the future may hold. We will soon find out.
The market is rife with misinformation even when CBD is sold as a relatively simple oil or supplement. When it’s squirted into a latte or baked into a cookie, CBD’s uses and effects get even more opaque. The chemical’s loudest advocates make health claims far beyond the current scientific evidence, and its harshest critics often dismiss the compound entirely as just another snake oil in America’s long tradition of health scams. Journalists are starting to get a handle on what CBD actually does and what is actually known about it, but along with researchers and regulators, we’re still playing catch-up when it comes to the people who have pushed the compound into what feels like mainstream overnight success: entrepreneurs.
There are concerns that a handful of less-than-reputable companies are tarnishing the industry as a whole. For years, the FDA has been sending warning letters to companies selling CBD while making unsubstantiated health claims. According to the FDA, one company had claimed on its website, “Scientific research by doctors have shown it (CBD) actually kills cancer cells and provides a protective coating around our brain cells.”
