What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 120 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).
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.
With our CTFO line of CBD products, we use PCR (Phytocannaiboid) rich 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.
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.
At CTFO (CBD Hemp Oil), our CBD products utilize the full spectrum Cannabis plant mixed with Hemp Seed oil. Not all hemp is created equal. Our CBD Oil is made from NON-GMO, PESTICIDE and HEAVY METAL FREE, CO2 Extracted Hemp Oil.
In our experience, a full spectrum plant gives the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) the full cannabinoid profile of CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, and a much broader nutrition content. We have over 120 cannabinoids in our CBD formulas which perfectly inhibits the CB2 receptors in the body. Other competitors claim to have a 99% purity which is usually in the form of “Isolate” or an “Extract” only. Although the purity level is higher, the body is only receiving CBD, not the full cannabinoid profile. CTFO (Changing The Future Outcome) has a highly potent blend of full spectrum, whole plant CBD hemp oil extract with an added boost of CBD isolate to make it one of the most powerful formulas of CBD oil available on the market today.

People with Diabetes are Turning to CBD for Help
Studies on diabetic mice conclude promising things about CBD as the title reveals: "Cannabidiol lowers incidence of diabetes in non-obese diabetic mice." Here is an excerpt from the abstract:
"We now report that CBD treatment significantly reduces the incidence of diabetes in NOD mice from an incidence of 86% in non-treated control mice to an incidence of 30% in CBD-treated mice. "..."Our results indicate that CBD can inhibit and delay destructive insulitis and inflammatory Th1-associated cytokine production in NOD mice resulting in a decreased incidence of diabetes possibly through an immunomodulatory mechanism shifting the immune response from Th1 to Th2 dominance."
Nearly 50% of the US population has been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or diabetes. Diabetes is a disease where the glucose (sugar) in the blood is not properly assimilated by the body. Glucose is the main fuel source for the functioning of the brain and cells and tissues. Diabetes means you have an excess of glucose in your blood. CTFO products are safe and organic and come with a 60-day money back guarantee (minus shipping). There is virtually no risk to give CTFO CBD Hemp Oil a try!
CBD and Pain Management in a Study Conducted by Dr. Sara Jane Ward
The following study was conducted at Temple University (Philadephia, PA) by Dr. Sara Jane Ward, Asst. Professor at the Center for Substance Abuse Research along with her research team. Dr. SJ Ward published a medical abstract on the experiments conducted. The study was done regarding chemotherapy induced pain in mice brought on from the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel (sold as the brand-name Taxol, among others) and using cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment on these mice for pain management.
An excerpt of the study:
Our preliminary findings therefore indicate that cannabidiol may prevent the development of paclitaxel-induced allodynia in mice and therefore be effective at preventing dose-limiting paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy in humans. . See study.
