CBD Buyers Beware!

why-ctfo-cbd-oil

Did you know that over 70% of C.B.D HEMP Oils found in stores and online (especially, but not limited to, the less expensive ones) is, for lack of a better term, JUNK or as people call it “Snake Oil”? 

As what is in the bottle doesn’t match the label. Many products that have been tested do not even have C.B.D in them. That is so sad that there are companies out there that only want to make a buck and do not care about the customer.

Following are a few reasons WHY CTFO offers the best products available.

  • INGREDIENTS.. there should not be more than two ingredients. C.B.D is so potent that it needs a carrier OIL to get it into your system without the liver flushing it out of our system. Also, a natural flavoring to offset the taste of C.B.D. We use pure phytocannabinoid rich HEMP OIL and a mild natural flavor. You don’t have to shake it and it does not need refrigeration.
  • ORGANIC… a pure, chemical free environment.
  • GMP CERTIFIED… Good Manufacturing Practices Certified. Meaning the government monitors all processes and ensures what the label says is exactly what’s in the bottle. Not all CBD companies qualify to carry this seal.
  • INDEPENDENT LAB CERTIFIED… and these reports should be readily available. Our C.B.D is tested three times by Different Independent Labs. Our Certified Lab Reports are readily available on our website and for the asking.
  • CRUELTY-FREE… no animal testing
  • NO THC… the government classifies 0.3% THC as zero THC. Depending on which product you buy from CTFO we have between 0.000% THC and 0.2% THC. Well below the government regulation.
  • GUARANTEE… We believe so strongly in the Purity and Quality of our products that they ALL carry a 60 DAY EMPTY BOTTLE REFUND GUARANTEE NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
  • 10XPURE… we are also the only company with a worldwide EXCLUSIVE & PATENTED 10xPURE C.B.D HEMP OIL. Studies show that CBDA has as many health benefits as C.B.D. And our 10xPure gets BOTH CBDA & C.B.D to areas of the body it needs to be in.
  • GROWN & MADE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA C.B.D HEMP OIL

What Is CBD?

What-is-CBD

I am asked almost every day, what is CBD and how does it work?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic, non-psychoactive therapeutic chemical compound that comes from CBDa (Cannabidioloc Acid), it is found in cannabis and belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. Unlike the cannabinoid THC, CBD does not get you high and does not produce intoxication. CBD is one of many active cannabinoid chemicals found in the hemp plant (hemp plants are part of the Cannabis family but different than marijuana plants. CBD can be found in both plants but is more abundant in hemp) that targets specific receptors in the cells of your brain and body called the Endocannabinoid System.

CBD is referred to as a “smart” molecule, as it acts as an adaptogen, a regulator, and a modulator. Studies show CBD has a much broader impact on health than THC, as about 80% of the health benefits of medical marijuana can be attributed to CBD.

CBD is becoming increasingly popular among the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits. Research has shown that nonpsychoactive therapeutic cannabidiol may be used for both the treatment and prevention for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, addiction, inflammation and chronic pain, anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorders, depression, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD could even help treat acne.

Because you can’t get high with CBD, it is legal in all 50 states when it contains less than.3% THC, It is safe to consume, even in high doses, and is available without a prescription in all 50 states. For many people, CBD is becoming a healthy addition to their lives. I encourage you to do your own research, educate yourself, and then incorporate CBD into your daily life.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

People have been using cannabis as a medicinal herb for thousands of years. Despite its long history of use, our understanding of how it takes effect on a cellular level has only begun to develop very recently. The surface has only been scratched on what cannabinoids are, how they work, why they have such an affinity with the human body and mind, and how it possesses such an enormous number of potential health benefits.

Research on the medicinal benefits of cannabis has led to the discovery of a biochemical communication system in the human body called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). In the mid-1980s, a cell receptor for cannabinoids was discovered in the brain and central nervous system. It was appropriately named CB1 (cannabinoid receptor number 1). This discovery begged the question: why is there a receptor in the brain specifically for receiving the cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis? And, could it be that the CB1 receptor is actually there for receiving chemicals naturally present within the body? So the research expanded from only studying the cannabinoids in cannabis to looking for cannabinoid-like compounds produced within the human body that also acted on the CB1 receptor. Because the body’s own self-produced cannabinoids were endogenous, they were appropriated named “endocannabinoids.”

Eventually, a second receptor was found and named the CB2 receptor. Researchers speculate there may be a third cannabinoid receptor yet to be discovered. CB receptors are present throughout the whole body. CB1 receptors are predominately present in the brain and nervous system while CB2 receptors are more prevalent in the periphery of the body.

Endocannabinoids are believed to be integral to the immune system, mental function, stress management, as well as the body’s ability to achieve and maintain homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system is involved with regulating many basic functions of the human body, including appetite, metabolism, pain, sleep, mood, movement, memory and learning, immune function, inflammation, neuroprotection, cardiovascular function, and digestion, to name a few. Besides maintaining basic functions, the endocannabinoid system also acts in response to illness. But through stress, toxicity, poor diet, and lifestyle choices, there is a very real possibility that we can develop an endocannabinoid deficiency, meaning that the function of the endocannabinoid system may become impaired. This is why supplementing your diet with therapeutic cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant is wise and can be very beneficial, giving the body what it needs to heal itself and support the homeostatic process.

What is CTFO?

Changing The Future Outcome (CTFO) is a 3-year-old company based out of California that is committed to offering the highest quality, lowest priced and most effective CBD based products on the market.

What is unique about CTFO CBD?

Not all hemp is created equal and not all extraction methods produce the same quality. CTFO CBD is made from both the CBD isolate along with the full spectrum whole plant hemp oil. This combination provides a much higher potency of CBD while maintaining over 120 other cannabinoids and more than 400 phytonutrients that exist in the hemp plant, all of which have health benefits. CTFO’s extraction technology allows for the extraction of all of these nutrients, without using any heat or harmful solvents. The result is a whole food with exceptional nutritional qualities.

CTFO CBD is made from non-GMO, pesticide-free, CO2 extracted hemp oil using only organic ingredients. All CTFO products are manufactured in the USA in a registered GMP, cruelty-free facility. CTFO sources their hemp from Industrial Hemp farms that are fully compliant with the State Department of Agriculture regulations. These farms use only the best, highest quality, organic hemp. CTFO CBD delivers the purest and highest quality CBD, along with over 400 other phytonutrients, in a naturally synergistic, easy-to-use and easy-to-absorb form.

CTFO also has an exclusive 10x Pure CBD Oil. This amazing new patented product transports all natural and non-processed full spectrum oil throughout the bloodstream. As a result, it dramatically increases both potency and absorption into the body. The 10X Pure process removes the membrane from the oil molecule to create a covalent (molecular) bond, with all of the cannabinoids that our CBD Oil contains. In other words, the 10X Pure removes the entire oily film that surrounds the outside of each and every CBD molecule. This immediately exposes the molecule itself so it can penetrate any impenetrable cell. Currently, no other process or technology can do this!

BIOAVAILABILITY OF CBD & WHY IT MATTERS

BioAvailability1

The bioavailability of CBD is a widely discussed subject these days within the CBD arena. There are plenty of factors that decide on the final quality of Cannabidiol goods, from the source of the hemp to the extraction methods to the quality systems in place in manufacturing and third-party lab testing. But in the end, what matters is how much of the CBD your body will absorb.

That being said, it’s no wonder that the bioavailability of CBD is on people’s tongues right now. Once you figure out what the bioavailability of CBD is all about, you will finally get the answer to your question, i.e. “How do we get the most effectiveness out of our CBD?”

The Bioavailability of CBD – What Is It?

oil.jpg

As you may have noticed, CBD comes in many various forms. The list includes lotions, tinctures, oils, balms, e-liquids, capsules, concentrates, and even pet treats. Each of these administration methods requires different usage approach. Moreover, each full-spectrum product typically has a unique concentration of CBD and other cannabinoids.

If you’ve never used CBD or are not familiar with the industry, choosing between all these options can be overwhelming. We understand your confusion and hesitance; you just want to try CBD, but which form will provide you with the best effects? How much CBD should you take?

Addressing these two questions with answers about what the bioavailability of CBD actually means will help you understand how to proceed.

CBD Oil.png

Simply put, bioavailability is measured by the degree and rate at which a substance is absorbed into the bloodstream. By definition, when a substance or supplement is administered intravenously, its bioavailability is 100%. However, when the same product is administered via other routes (such as orally), its bioavailability generally decreases or may vary from patient to patient. Bioavailability is one of the essential tools in pharmacokinetics, as bioavailability must be considered when calculating the serving size for non-intravenous routes of administration.

Bioavailability is the third-most important factor, right after the amount and strength of a substance when it comes to getting the most out of your CBD oil. Bioavailability also helps calculate users their CBD dosage at the start.

The bioavailability of CBD can vary based on the concentration of CBD in the given product and the administration method, which brings us to another essential question, namely:

What’s the Most Effective Way to Take CBD?

Well, if you’re looking for the most effective way to administer CBD, this would be intravenous administration. In other words, CBD would be injected directly into the bloodstream through the veins.

This method ensures a 100% bioavailability of CBD, but it’s by far the least popular option. Now, if you don’t prefer to stick yourself with a needle, worry not. There are plenty of different methods of using CBD.

Let’s discuss them and see how each affects the bioavailability of CBD.

Oral Consumption

Pill.jpg

This ingestion method doesn’t need an introduction. By oral consumption, we mean consuming something through your mouth. When it comes to CBD, common oral consumption methods include CBD edibles, beverages, gummies, and capsules.

As much as we admire the benefits of eating CBD, the truth is that any substance consumed orally will have to pass through your digestive and metabolic systems, which will in turn drastically reduce the bioavailability of CBD by filtering out a large portion of the cannabinoids.

According to a 1986 study, the bioavailability rate of orally consumed products is 6%. However, another study (from 2009) reported this rate to be between 4% and 20%. While these two results differ significantly, both indicate that the bioavailability of oral CBD products is not at all impressive, with 20% being the most optimistic scenario.

How to Increase the Bioavailability of Oral CBD?

The well-described disadvantage of oral CBD consumption gives raise to the obvious question – can the bioavailability of CBD oil be increased when you take it orally?

Yes, and the solution is initially pretty straightforward. Recent studies have proved the theory that cannabinoids consumed along with vegetable oils have higher availability than if used alone. As a matter of fact, the presence of vegetable oil can increase the bioavailability of CBD almost threefold.

How does it happen? CBD Oil has a very high affinity to chylomicrons, which are particles responsible for transporting the lipids from the small intestine to the bloodstream through the lymphatic system. This allows cannabinoids to bypass the liver, and as a result, you deliver more CBD to the bloodstream.

To cut the long story short, the more fats or oil you consume together with your daily intake of cannabinoids, the larger the lymph flow will be, and the more compounds will be able to get into the lymphatic system in their unmetabolized form.

Now, let’s move on to other forms of CBD.

Sublingual Consumption (Oral Tinctures)

Sublingual Consumption.png

Technically speaking, this is some form of oral consumption, but with one major difference. When you use CBD oral tinctures, you apply them beneath the tongue. This is where a vein called the sublingual gland is located.

When you put a few drops of CBD oil to the sublingual gland, the substance will get absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Aside from oral tinctures, you can also utilize your sublingual glans by ingesting CBD lozenges and CBD sprays.

There are a couple of different factors that can affect the bioavailability of CBD for sublingual use, but the main determiner is hands down the quality of CBD. Reported bioavailability rates range from 12% to 25%, which is still more effective than traditional oral consumption.

10x.png

In addition, a patented brand-new product being brought to the market by the firm I represent shows very promising results. Our 10x Pure product is hydrophilic, which means that it is attracted to water. A full spectrum product, it is estimated that bioavailability of the product is between 80 and 90%.

Inhalation

Vaporization is the new trend for both recreational and medical users who like to use dry herbs and essential oils to improve the quality of their lives or solve different health concerns.

Vape Pen.jpg

Vaporization involves inhaling CBD right into the lungs, using a special device called a vaporizer or vape pen. Because the inhaled cannabinoids directly enter the lungs, the CBD can reach the bloodstream within seconds. This method ensures lower breakdown rates and the higher bioavailability of CBD.

Moreover, vaporization is by far the most efficient method of CBD consumption with the exception of our 10x Pure product. As numerous medical studies report, bioavailability rates of vaporized CBD are between 34% and 46%. Some studies even report up to 56% bioavailability.

If you’re looking for one of the safest and more effective methods of CBD delivery, you now have a choice between our 10x Pure or vaporization (vaping).

Other Factors Affecting the Bioavailability of CBD

All of the above methods are affected by the hydrophobic character of CBD oil. Typical CBD oil is not meant to dissolve in water (our 10x Pure product is the exception), and for that reason, it diffuses out of the bloodstream and gets stored in fatty tissues. This, in turn, cuts the concentration of active CBD in the endocannabinoid system. As a result, the oil is less bioavailable.

Still, there are two other factors that can affect the bioavailability of CBD, so let’s take a brief look at them.

Serving Size

The effects of CBD depend on the serving size, and the optimal serving may vary from person to person and bioavailability of the product. When trying CBD oil for the first time, start with the serving size that is lower than that recommended by your CBD company. If you don’t feel the desired effects after a week, or they are just too mild for you, increase the serving size for another week. Continue until you are satisfied with the results.

The Quality of CBD Oil

Last but not least, the CBD content depends on the quality of the CBD oil. Top-notch CBD products will be consistent and provide the exact level of CBD that is advertised on a company’s labels and website. Make sure you always buy CBD oil from a reputable source that is open about the third-party lab testing results and sources its CBD from the finest, organic industrial hemp. GMP practices in manufacturing is another requirement that you should stand firm on.

This way, you will minimize the risk of falling into the trap of false promises made by some manufacturers in the industry.

Did you know that coffee is a great source for antioxidants? Americans get more PJs Logo 2-19 Croppedantioxidants from coffee than from any other source of food. And if you drink your coffee black with no cream or sugar, coffee can be a good can be a good way to help give your health a little guilt free boost.

 

 

 

Now even though there are over 400 billion cups of coffee consumed every year around the world, not everybody likes to drink black coffee.  So how can you get the benefits of the high antioxidants in coffee? By cooking with it. There have been many great recipes created over the years that utilize brewed black coffee, whole beans and/or ground coffee.

But why should you care about antioxidants? What do they do? Antioxidants, help cells in your body from being oxidized by toxins, chemicals and inflammation. They can help with the management or prevention of some medical conditions, such as some cancers, arthritis-related conditions, and may even help with slowing Alzheimer’s disease.

Most people think about the health benefits they get from drinking coffee, not eating the coffee bean. You can actually get more antioxidants from eating coffee grounds than drinking coffee. Now I am not suggesting you should start buying coffee and just eat the Healthy Coffee Lifestyles, Joe Medrano, Benefits of Coffee, antioxidantsgrounds instead of making coffee.

What I am suggesting is, if you haven’t already, you should consider trying to cook with coffee. While there are a lot of recipes out there using coffee in deserts, there are also plenty of recipes for savory and healthy foods as well.

I have been trying different coffee recipes out and making modifications to some and also trying them with different types of coffee beans. And yes, believe it or not, some recipes you can tell the difference in flavor depending on the bean.

Being a coffee lover, I do have a preference for AA Arabica beans. AA Arabica beans have a fragrant aroma and rich body. And at PJ’s Roasted Bean Coffee Company we infrared roast the beans so the beans are never bitter, never burnt, always smooth and have a fuller flavor.

I know I sound like I am talking about wine (which I am a big fan of as well), but if you haven’t noticed, coffee has come along way and their are more specialty coffee companies popping up all over. You will find many coffee shops have tasting notes on their various coffees just like a fine wine.

However, approximately only 2% of coffee is infrared roasted worldwide because the process to roast costs a little more for coffee companies. We infrared roast all of our coffee because we believe in providing better coffee to our clients so they can provide a better cup of coffee to their customers.

We also believe in a healthy lifestyle and the infrared roasting process helps the coffee have higher antioxidants.

Over the next few weeks some of my blog posts will start containing recipes utilizing coffee in them. Some will be healthy, some will be less healthy, but all will be really good, especially the ones for those of us with a sweet tooth.

I might even include some videos. I hope you will join me on my continued journey of discovery of coffee, its health benefits, and living a healthy lifestyle. You might even see a recipe or two that you like.

And remember:

“Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep.”
