• Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is arguably one of the most complex and debilitating neurodegenerative diseases. It is generally characterized not only by neuroinflammation and oxidative stress, but also by the accumulation of amyloid-β and tau hyperphosphorylation. Because current treatments do not stop, reverse, or sometimes even slow the progression of the disease, more effective treatments are needed. A new study (February 2017) from Frontiers in Pharmacology, discusses how cannabidiol (CBD), which has demonstrated neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, is non-psychoactive and may be an effective treatment option for those struggling with...

  • Most neuro-inflammatory disorders like Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and multiple sclerosis have had more studies completed showing how cannabidiol (CBD) may help them. Because of the complexity of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), and the poor availability of animal models that are relevant to the human disease, this isn’t entirely true.  However, there are still several studies showing how beneficial the endocannabinoid system, and compounds like CBD can be. One study explains that a deficiency in CB1 receptors can cause an acceleration in AD symptoms. So, it can be concluded that by...

  • One of the best advocates for the power of CBD (Cannabidiol), a non-psychotropic cannabinoid that can be found in cannabis/hemp, are players in the National Football Leage (NFL).  The athletes who participate in this sport are well aware of the need for non-addictive, natural plant-based medicines that do not have the drastic and negative side-effects that often come with opiates.  From The Cannabist: “Cannabis has been proven to be effective for managing pain, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has held a patent since 2003 that suggests...

  • An increasing number of people are experiencing a range of neurodegenerative diseases - one of the saddest and most emotionally debilitating is Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). A non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid called CBD (Cannabidiol) has demonstrated in a multitude of research studies that it has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties.  Although many of these studies are done inside of a lab with test-tubes (in vitro), thousands of cases involving individuals can be documented - showing a wide range of potential applications for this cannabinoid (there are over 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis...

  • In an outstanding article by Prakash Janakiraman, the symptoms and effects of Alzheimer’s are related to the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).    “The role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in neurodegenerative disorders has been demonstrated in recent years. CB1 receptors are widely distributed in brain regions such as the cerebellum, cortex, hippocampus, and basal ganglia. The hippocampus is associated with learning and memory. These areas are often affected in the early course of AD. CB2 is sparsely expressed in the brainstem, cerebellum and microglia.” There is an explanation of how cannabinoids...

  • At That’s Natural, we understand how important it is to make an informed decision about the products that you take. 1. Our genetically-superior hemp, that tests at a ratio of 60:1 CBD to other cannabinoids, is grown in Colorado - regulated by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. 2. We use a food-grade supercritical CO2 extraction process that is much safer than many other methods that use dangerous chemical solvents that can leave residue in your product. 3.
