  1. Once every two weeks you replace a bottle? That seems like it might be a bit often. Is it twice daily or more?
  2. On August 11th, 2019 online payment processing returns to Heartland Hemp Inc and Heartland CBD.
  3. Welcome to the NutraCare CBD portion of the message boards. Here you can submit your comments or get support for your products. Feel free to create your own topics, reply to other topics and engage in conversation.
  4. My CBD blends tend to last me roughly 3.5 weeks on average. How often do you find yourself replacing your CBD? If it's too often, you might need to consider increasing your CBD per dose to reduce your oil consumption!
  5. Personally, I am a fan of the pinene group of terpenes. I like how they are able to assist with my breathing and energy as well! What are some of your favorite terpenes and why?
  6. Are You Mixing CBD With Your Medications? Are you using full spectrum or isolate hemp extracts and using them within the same time frame as a medication? If so, which medicines are you mixing it with and what do you notice with and without the additional CBD? For myself, I use albuterol inhalers. When using my personalized cbd blend, the terpene content tends to assist the steroid provided by the albuterol inhaler. I don't notice any jittery feelings or anything like that. Now I would like to mention that albuterol inhalers are not interactive with cytochrome p450, which is why I felt fine mixing these two things. And just because albuterol doesn't directly interact with CP450, doesn't mean there isn't risk with mixing medications with your albuterol. If you take albuterol, be sure to reference this guide: Albuterol Inhalation Interactions with Other Medications To understand more about mixing medications with your CBD, and knowing weather or not it may be safe, be sure to check out our article: "CBD and Drug Interactions"
  7. Hello Mr. McMullin, Thank you for your service, your time, your business, and of course for this amazing review! I have just created and moved your topic into our new Heartland CBD reviews. We also have added a review button to our homepage as well that takes you over to Google :) Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
  8. This topic has been created for others to respond too! We can now all talk without losing place of what was said.
  9. Recently in the news, I have seen many stories about how hemp CBD isn't always consistent with the labeling. This is growing in number!
  10. NEWSLETTER MAY 24. 2019 May 24, 2019 Introduction: We at Heartland Hemp Inc. want to spread the science behind the CBD explosion, and the importance of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). So here are a few selections regarding the ECS from www.verywellhealth.com and What Is the Endocannabinoid System? by Adrienne Dellwo published and medically reviewed in April 2019. “To understand the ECS, it first helps to understand what homeostasis is. Basically, homeostasis is your body’s efforts to keep everything in the right zone. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what’s going on in the environment around you. Think of all the gauges in the dashboard of a car or airplane. Those all tell the operator whether things are—or aren’t—operating in the proper zone. Just like the electronics in a car or plane, your body works continuously to monitor important levels and functions in your body. Is your temperature too high, too low, or just right? Are your hormone levels what they should be? Is your heart beating too fast? Do you need fuel or rest? Is too much of something building up in your bloodstream or inside of your cells? When something is operating outside of the right range, your body activates the ECS to help correct it. So when you’re really hot and begin to sweat, thank your ECS for working to cool you down. Stomach growling? That’s your ECS helping remind you to eat because you need fuel. The ECS does this via cannabinoid receptors found in select tissues. We have (at least) two types of cannabinoid receptors: · CB1 which is in the central nervous system (brain and nerves of the spinal cord) · CB2 which is in the peripheral nervous system (nerves in your extremities), the digestive system, and specialized cells in the immune system Cannabinoid receptors are believed to be among the most plentiful in our central nervous system, and some researchers hypothesize that we could have a third, undiscovered one, as well. Through those receptors, the ECS helps regulate a lot of important functions, such as: · Appetite · Mood · Memory · Digestion · Sleep · Motor control · Immune function · Pain · Reproduction/fertility · Inflammation, including neuroinflammation · Pleasure/reward · Temperature regulation Your body activates the ECS with precision so that it impacts only what it needs to. For example, if your reproductive hormones are out of whack, it will work to regulate them without altering your digestion or immune system. Then, once the endocannabinoids have done their job and brought things into balance, certain enzymes come along to break them down and prevent them from going too far and upsetting the balance in the opposite direction. It’s a precise response. That’s different from what happens if someone smokes marijuana and floods their system with cannabinoids. Then the drug has wide-ranging impacts on physiology, some of which may be beneficial while others may be harmful. Homeostasis is essential to our health and survival, so when the ECS isn’t working properly, it can cause a lot of problems for you.” “As medical science has learned more about the ECS, it’s also discovered several conditions that appear to be related to dysregulation of the system, which is called clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD). CECD isn’t a disease itself but is an umbrella term encompassing conditions with this common feature. The CECD conditions include: Fibromyalgia, Migraine, Irritable bowel syndrome These conditions are sometimes called “functional conditions” or “central sensitivity syndromes.” They tend to be resistant to most treatments, so researchers are looking into cannabis-based treatments. These conditions also generally involve more than one system—which makes sense when you look at the areas influenced by the ECS. For example, fibromyalgia involves the central and peripheral nervous systems, the immune system, the endocrine (hormonal) system, and even the digestive system. It’s also been linked to premature perimenopause, problems with conception, and early hysterectomy. Temperature sensitivity and poor memory are common symptoms. That seems like a grab-bag of unrelated problems until you think about homeostasis and the ECS. We’re still early in the process of figuring out how to correct endocannabinoid deficiency, but the increasing availability of medical marijuana and CBD products has been largely embraced by the patient community and we’re likely to see a lot more research in that area.” (https://www.verywellhealth.com/what-is-the-endocannabinoid-system-4171855 ) By now, most people have heard about cannabinoids such as Delta-9 THC and CBD. While these compounds have a range of medical benefits, they are only part of what makes cannabis therapy so effective; and have proven to be less effective on their own than when combined with other phytochemicals like terpenes. Both cannabinoids and terpenes affect receptors in the endocannabinoid system which is what allows cannabis to act therapeutically in the human body. “The endocannabinoid system is involved in a host of homeostatic and physiologic functions, including modulation of pain and inflammation. The specific roles of currently identified endocannabinoids that act as ligands at endogenous cannabinoid receptors within the central nervous system (primarily but not exclusively CB1 receptors) and in the periphery (primarily but not exclusively CB2 receptors) are only partially elucidated, but they do exert an influence on nociception. Exogenous plant-based cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) and chemically related compounds, like the terpenes, commonly found in many foods, have been found to exert significant analgesic effects in various chronic pain conditions. Currently, the use of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol is limited by its psychoactive effects and predominant delivery route (smoking), as well as regulatory or legal constraints. However, other phytocannabinoids in combination, especially cannabidiol and β-caryophyllene, delivered by the oral route appear to be promising candidates for the treatment of chronic pain due to their high safety and low adverse effects profiles. This review will provide the reader with the foundational basic and clinical science linking the endocannabinoid system and the phytocannabinoids with their potentially therapeutic role in the management of chronic pain.”(The Endocannabinoid System, Cannabinoids, and Pain, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3820295/) It is the terpenes in cannabis which modulate (modify or control) the effect that the cannabinoids within each sample will have on the user. This is why different strains of cannabis effect each user uniquely. For example, if you have 2 different types of cannabis and both have equal amounts of cannabinoids, but one gives you energetic effects and one gives you sedative effects, this is largely due to the different terpene profiles of the strains. Cannabinoids and terpenes have their own independent effects, but in combination they have been known to be vastly more effective than in isolation. The term “entourage effect” has become an easily identified piece of vocabulary in the cannabis community to describe the basic relationship between terpenes, cannabinoids, and other phytochemicals (chemicals made by plants) which are responsible for the vast therapeutic potential of cannabis. We at Heartland feel that the term “ensemble effect” better describes the individual importance that each cannabidiol and terpene brings to the effect. Instead of CBD acting as the most important single entity with everything else hanging on the edges, we see it as a conductor of the orchestra. Without CBD, each instrument (terpene) is trying to work on its own, but with CBD the sound changes from chaos to a beautiful piece of music. To explore that concept we will spotlight a terpene within each newsletter, including quotes of testing information from medical studies. We will also include the terpene profile of essential oils that have the particular terpene in them. IN THE SPOTLIGHT Spotlight Terpene: Beta-Caryophyllene Sources: Black Pepper, Copaiba Resin, Cloves, Hops, Oregano, Lavender, Rosemary Why this Terpene: Beta-Caryophyllene is important for several reasons but the primary reason is because of its size and molecular structure it has also been identified as a dietary cannabinoid. “Due to these properties, Beta-Caryophyllene is able to activate several receptors in the body, including CB2, which is usually activated most by CBD” (True Terpenes, 2019) Being able to activate the CB2 receptors within the endocannabinoid system similar to CBD lets this terpene enhance the benefits of CBD within the Gastrointestinal system, the Immune system and the Peripheral nervous system. “Although the CB(1) receptor is responsible for the psychomodulatory effects, activation of the CB(2) receptor is a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of inflammation, pain, atherosclerosis, and osteoporosis. Here, we report that the widespread plant volatile (E)-beta-caryophyllene [(E)-BCP] selectively binds to the CB(2) receptor (K(i) = 155 +/- 4 nM) and that it is a functional CB(2) agonist. Intriguingly, (E)-BCP is a common constituent of the essential oils of numerous spice and food plants and a major component in Cannabis.” (Gertsch et al., Beta-caryophyllene is a dietary cannabinoid, 2008 Jun 23, Epub) www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18574142 The terpenoid beta-caryophyllene has also been shown to inhibit the development of gastric lesions evoked in rats. As a possible protective agent within the gastric system many are using copaiba oil as an herbal remedy for stomach issues. However, like the majority of terpenes beta-caryophyllene has also proven to be a potent anti-inflammatory which is a primary source of chronic pain. This combination of natural benefits is slowly gaining ground as a homeopathic remedy for a multitude of issues. doTERRA a leader within the essential oil industry has this to say about this particular terpene: “Beta-caryophyllene is primarily known for its presence in the essential oils extracted from black pepper, clove, melissa, and rosemary, but the best source is the lesser-known oil copaiba. GC-MS assessments have shown that many sources of copaiba essential oil are composed of more than 50% beta-caryophyllene, and not surprisingly, the properties of this oil extracted from the oleoresin of Copaifera species trees is becoming a popular topic of research. There have been over 70 peer-reviewed studies published in scientific journals in the last handful of years evaluating the benefits of copaiba, several of which focus on its CB2-binding properties and the associated health benefits.” (Rodriguez D., Beta-Caryophyllene: Squashing the Essential Oil Debate with Science, harcourthealth.com) In conclusion our high levels of this particular terpene could be a contributing factor regarding our particular blends of CBD Hemp oil within our tinctures and topical products.

  15. Philip Blair, MD, Col. (ret.), U.S. Army P&T® • April 2019 • Vol. 44 No. 4 Hemp-derived cannabidiol, used with concurrent standard treatments or alone, may be highly effective for alleviating posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), according to an open-label pilot study among combat veterans. The greatest improvements, said Dr. Philip Blair, whose interest in PTSD arose from his experience as a combat physician during the Gulf War, were in reductions of repeated disturbing memories, thoughts, and feelings associated with a stressful military environment. Common PTSD symptoms include avoidance, negative moods, re-experience, and anxiety. Prolonged activation of the stress responses can produce physical symptoms that compromise the body’s internal stability, resulting in physical dysregulations, decreased immune function, and chronic illness. Veterans with mental health issues also have an increased risk of suicide. Meeting Highlights: Integrative Healthcare Symposium Current standard PTSD treatments include antidepressants, anti anxiety agents, behavioral therapy, and sleep aid medications. Beyond recurring memories, many patients have chronic pain, opioid dependence, and musculoskeletal disorders that lead to additional drugs and therapies, Dr. Blair said. He pointed out that although marijuana relieves the painful thoughts of PTSD, it does not seem to help recovery. Furthermore, for many people, the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) component of marijuana has disabling effects including lethargy, drowsiness, and memory impairment. The very low THC levels in cannabidiol derived from industrial hemp (= 3%) make it non-psychoactive with respect to these adverse effects. On the other hand, cannabidiol has been shown to modulate fear memory, emotional reconsolidation, memory processing, and the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis of hormone production (see Figure 1). Also, cannabidiol appears to rebalance the endocannabinoid system by acting on endocannabinoid receptors CB1R and CB2R, and by inhibiting fatty acid amide hydrolase, the enzyme responsible for degrading endocannabinoids.1 In an interview at his poster, Dr. Blair emphasized that cannabidiol seems to inhibit the reconsolidation pathways behind repeating memories and open up the extinction pathway that allows one to forget these same memories. The 30 study participants (aged 24–70 years), all veterans with PTSD diagnosed by the Veteran’s Administration, had continuing and chronically persisting symptoms. Lack of active medical management, however, was not an exclusion criterion. None of the participants had suicidal ideation nor a history of suicide attempts. Subjects completed the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist for DSM-5 (PCL-5) along with a brief clinical history. No changes in medications or therapies were recommended, and they were encouraged to continue their course of therapy. Each participant received liposomal cannabidiol in liquid form and was instructed to take 5 mg sublingually twice daily, and then to adjust the dose as needed to control PTSD symptoms. Subjects repeated the PCL-5 checklist at weeks 2 and 4, and were asked to keep a daily log using the PCL-5 numerical values. The average self-dose of cannabidiol was 15 mg/day. After two weeks, at mid-study, the average PCL-5 total score among 22 respondents was 57, down from the pre-cannabidiol treatment average score of 66. After four weeks of treatment, the average total score dropped to 41, with the most severe score down to 72 from an initial 100, and the lowest score down to 27 from 55. The average symptom score decreased by 67%. At the pre-treatment evaluation, 50% of participants had rated themselves as being “extremely” affected by repeated memories/thoughts/feelings. After treatment, no subjects rated such symptoms as affecting them “extremely” and only 28% said they were affected “quite a bit.” Pre-treatment, none of the participants selected “not at all,” whereas post-cannabidiol treatment, 28% of them selected “not at all.” With the permission of their primary medical providers, several participants discontinued using other prescription medications (including antidepressants and antianxiety drugs) during the course of the trial and have not restarted since its conclusion. Cannabidiol was well tolerated by all veterans, with no significant adverse events, hospitalizations, suicide attempts, or known emergency treatments. Dr. Blair also commented that, in some veterans, the rapid symptom decreases on first dose may indicate a specific endocannabinoid deficiency that is highly responsive to cannabidiol and that could be identified immediately in a clinical setting. He concluded that these preliminary results support a specific role for cannabidiol from industrial hemp for modulating PTSD physiology and indicate an “imperative need for more research.” REFERENCES 1.
