Spontaneous Healing with CBDs
Let me start by saying, I haven’t smoked pot since college. I’m a straight edge mom, no more than occasional microbrew for me. Then, I caught this wicked flu going around this Winter, worst sickness I’ve had in years. Body aches, horrific headache, fever, hot & cold at the same time but the worst part was I could not sleep, even after taking a sleeping aid, didn’t sleep a wink, felt awful all night long. Next day, in a moment of sickness and desperation, I asked my husband to go to Oregrown to find a CBD product to induce sleep. A client told me she takes CBDs for pain relief and to sleep. The staff were so friendly & informative on my husband’s first experience in a pot shop. He came home with Hypnos tincture (SunGod),included CBD’s, Lemon Balm and hops designed to promote sleep. One dropper full under my tongue, it tasted sweet, herbal and soothing. Thirty minutes later I was finally out, deep asleep, having a magnificent dream that I was an Eagle soaring over Smith Rock, felt like I slept forever. The true miracle came when I awoke the next morning, my flu illness was GONE! Completely Gone! I’ve known several people who had this bug going around & said it took weeks to a month to get over it, but all my symptoms were gone after one night of CBD induced sleep. I felt great, completely reborn, better than ever. I am a believer! I’m also a migraine sufferer, I’ve since used this tincture during migraine and it relieved the pain. Unlike THC, CBD’s do not get you “high”, it’s more of a body relaxant, pain reliever than a party. My results convinced me, CBD’s are powerful medicine! I spoke to Aviv Hadar of Oregrown about CBD’s. He is an inspirational business leader. He said he is humbled by the support of the Bend community for Oregrown. He equally supports Bend back by sponsoring our Athletes, check it out at Oregrown.com
CBD: Gateway to Health and Healing
by Aviv Hadar, Co-founder of Oregrown
Most people have heard of THC, Tetrahydrocannabinol, a naturally occurring chemical compound in cannabis associated with feeling “high,” scientists have identified more than 80 other cannabinoids that play a beneficial role in health. Best known of these is Cannabidiol, or CBD. Scientists learn more everyday about this powerful healing compound that has no psychoactive effect. Studies using animal models show CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and can inhibit the growth of some kinds of tumors. Research suggests CBDs may be helpful in treatment of depression. This is not news to people who use CBD regularly for a variety of health problems. People who swear by CBD say it helps them avoid addictive painkillers and unwanted side effects of over-the-counter and prescription drugs. CBD in topical creams, lotions or transdermal patches such as formulated by Mary’s Medicinals, can provide relief from pain associated with injuries, sprains, strains, as well as neuropathy and chronic pain from rheumatoid arthritis. CBD helps with anxiety and sleeplessness. Even pets can benefit from CBD. In my own dogs, I’ve observed CBD reduces or eliminates noncancerous fatty lipomas older dogs are prone to and provides relief from arthritis and muscle injuries.
