• Celiac disease has recently become a well-studied idiopathic disorder. According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, 1 in every 100 people is at risk for celiac disease.  Worse, first degree relatives of someone with celiac have a 1 in 10 chance to develop the disease. Around 80% of people with celiac disease don’t know they have it and may be asymptomatic or underdiagnosed. So, how can cannabinoids impact those struggling with the disease? One study shows that those with celiac disease, and are untreated, have a much higher level or cannabinoid...

  • "I have had celiac disease for almost four years. The first two years, I was getting sick from cross contamination every 6-8 weeks and would be sick for about a week each time. Even with the smallest amounts of gluten imaginable, I would get sick for 7-10 days with headaches, blurry vision, nausea, stomach cramps, irregular bowel movements, and insomnia. Then I started taking That's Natural's CBD rich hemp oil. Over the past two years, I have only been sick twice (from family making spaghetti with wheat noodles for me)...

  • There has been various research on the Endocannabinoid System, and the cannabinoid receptors that exist in the human body that react to both endocannabinoids (that are produced inside of the body by itself) and cannabinoids (that can be introduced be internal or topical applications). More and more people are becoming sensitive and even intolerant to gluten. Whether they struggle with gut health issues, IBS (irritable bowl syndrome), or even Celiac Disease, people's digestion has takena  toll in the last decade because of diet and environmental factors.. Exciting research and new...

  • The many benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol) may seem like a wide variety, maybe even too good to be true… until you learn more about our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Through our ECS, all humans (and mammals) are pre-wired to be responsive to cannabinoids.  As a matter of fact, we already make endocannabinoids inside of us (endogenously).  Many of the cells that have receptors for cannabinoids are in the nervous system and immune system. Many ailments, and much of our pain, comes from nerve degeneration and/or inflammation.  Whether it is...

  •   We are learning more about the complex inter-relationships between the Endocannabinod System (ECS) and other systems in our bodies. We naturally make ‘endocannabinoids’ within us - these are compounds that are known in the body and a part of every human being.  Since our body is ‘pre-wired’ to be responsive to cannabinoids (through CB1 and CB2 receptors), there may be many symbiotic benefits to taking various cannabinoids (or phytocannabinoids) for health. In a 2007 study, it was found that an increased administration of a probiotic increased the number of...

  • You may have heard of ‘the gut’ being your body’s “second brain”, or at least felt how much your mood and emotional well-being is affected by how your digestive system operates.  Our gut microbiota, consisting of about 100 trillion cells and about 160 species, is at the forefront of how we feel.  And emerging evidence shows that our gut microbiota is intertwined with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).   Humans’ bodies, through the ECS, are pre-wired with cannabinoid receptors.  Endocannbinoids, which are bioactive lipid-based hormones made endogenously in our bodies -...

  •   Cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids, may have profound effects on our health.  Inside of each of us, we naturally produce 'endocannabinoids' already in our body - and have what is called an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). A big issue for many people is inflammation of the intestines - known by many names, and affected by varying triggers.  Whether it is gut pain, irritable bowl syndrome (IBS), colitis, and others - our digestion (sometimes our 'gut' is considered our "second brain") can affect our mood and overall well-being. Here's a link to the journal...

  • "I had been thinking of cbd's for some time, and wanted to learn more about them. I've had a number of chronic health issues for years. All of them require meds, which typically make at least one of the other conditions worse. There is a  long list of side effects that come with each of them as well. A friend uses this product so I decided to get serious and research it more, and then tried a bottle. My results were not immediate, but amazing once it started working. I'm...

  • Here's a link to the journal article "Cannabis finds its way into treatment of Crohn’s disease" - which highlights the use of cannabis/hemp for the treatment of inflammation of the intestines.  Cannabis, or hemp, is a plant that has been around for thousands of years, and used as medicine for the same amount of time - dating back to 2,700 BC in the world’s oldest pharmacopoeia, compiled in China - which indicated uses for cannabis including for rheumatic pain, intestinal constipation, disorders of the female reproductive system, and more. From the abstract: In ancient...
