  • On Friday, May 31st, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration all the first public hearing in history to receive public comments on CBD. Industry stakeholders say the FDA's forthcoming guidance will likely take aim at developing industry standards and regulating label claims. The hearing lasted nearly 10 hours, with over 100 speakers providing testimony regarding the best array of experiences and anecdotes from the industry.

    Some say the focus seemed off. Lawyers promise new future lawsuits, While others testified that their lives have been greatly improved by access to CBD.

    The agency's questions and remarks to speakers showed where its main concerns might like. It suggests we are going to see regulations about labeling and dosing inconsistency. In an unregulated market, there are products that don't contain the amount of CBD that they say they do, don't contain any CBD at all, or contain synthetic or other adulterants or other substances that shouldn't be in there.

    One of the FDA's main concerns, will likely be developing unified standards and regulations to weed out bad products.

    The hearing also emphasized the need for more research on the impact of CBD, particularly on special populations such as pregnant women and children.

    Concerns were also brought up about using a consistent vernacular and understanding of accepted terminology.

    The public comment window is open until July 2nd, and nearly everyone who testified at the hearing urge the FDA to act swiftly. It is unclear what the FDA's timeline is to create regulations for CBD.

  • Though you may not know exactly what they are, you’ve probably noticed the tiny hairs that cover the cannabis plant, giving it a crystal-like sheen and sticky feel. These glandular hairs are called trichomes, and they’re responsible for practically everything you love about cannabis.

    Trichomes are glandular hairs found on the surface of plants and are responsible for producing the cannabis plant’s cannabinoidsand terpenes. Trichomes contain resin glands that make the terpenes, flavonoids, THCA, CBDA, and other phytocannabinoids for which cannabis is known.

    The crystal-like sheen and sticky feeling of cannabis buds are caused by high accumulations of trichomes. While they’re most visible to the naked eye on cannabis flower, trichomes can also be found on the leaves and stems of the plant.

  • The endocannabinoid system in the human body is responsible for maintaining homeostatis, which enables all systems and organs to function optimally together including physiological processes – which is why cannabis also works well in treating emotional and mental imbalances. Each time you have an ailment or condition, whether it’s the common cold or cancer, it’s likely that this is a result of an instability within the endocannabinoid system.

    More people are taking cannabis as a form of prevention against disease and to keep the endocannabinoid system. By consuming cannabis regularly and following these tips, you can ensure that your endocannabinoid system is in top shape – and reduce your risk for disease:

    Stress management: Stress is one of the biggest culprits of both mental and physical diseases. Find ways of coping with stress in natural ways; perhaps you can combine cannabis with a yoga and meditation practice, or exercise more often. Engage in creative and artistic activities to get your mind off the problem. These ways will help you manage stress naturally and calm you down.

    Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids: Both of these acids aren’t produced naturally by the human body although they have significant health benefits, which is why we have to consume them from external sources such as certain varieties of fish or fish oil supplements. Both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids share similar therapeutic benefits as the cannabinoids found in cannabis, so making sure that you get enough of these fatty acids will double your chances of fighting inflammation, a root cause of many disorders including cancer and heart disease.

    Nutrition: Forget about the latest trends in “superfoods”; everything you need to keep yourself healthy and your endocannabinoid system in balance boils down to one simple thing: fresh and organic produce. There’s no need to shell out so much money on cold-pressed juices and the latest fads in healthy eating (by all means if you can afford it, go ahead); but just by consuming more greens and fresh fruit will do you good. Certain herbs and spices such as nutmeg, saffron, and turmeric contain potent therapeutic benefits that can aid in stimulating the endocannabinoid system, similar to the way cannabis does. Avoid foods that cause inflammation such as refined sugar and flour, red meat, and excessive dairy. Make healthy choices when you get the munchies!

    Sun exposure: Too much sun exposure without proper SPF protection will increase your risk for skin cancer, but a few minutes of good morning sun a day can help boost your endocannabinoid system. Studies show that sun exposure has a way of increasing cannabinoid receptors since UVA rays are a powerful inducer of nitric oxide, which has been shown to increase abundance of CB1 receptors in animal models.

    Exercise: Integrating cannabis with your fitness routine is now becoming more common, as people are increasingly learning the benefits of cannabis when it comes to fitness and even weight loss. Exercise helps your body get rid of harmful toxins, reduces stress, supports heart health, reduces inflammation, and helps you sleep better.

    Probiotics: Found in yogurt, kombucha, and other foods, probiotics is one of the foods that can help regulate the endocannabinoid system. Probiotics can increase CB2 receptors found in the intestinal cells, which can help keep stomach disorders at bay.

    Reduce alcohol intake: Drinking too much alcohol has been shown to reduce the efficacy of cannabinoid signaling in the body, which also means that it may dampen the sensitivity of cannabinoid receptors. Most of us enjoy a good alcoholic drink once in a while, but if you want to prevent disease or are already suffering from an ailment, limit your alcohol consumption.

    Take cold showers regularly: No matter what kind of climate you live in, an occasional cold shower has been shown to stimulate the cannabinoid system, a process called thermogenic activation. Aside from that, it can also be relaxing especially when you alternate it with hot water for a truly invigorating bath.

  • Anxiety and depression can be safely and effectively treated with cannabis. Unlike the the harsh pharmaceuticals, cannabis can offer long-term stress relief without the damaging side effects. Pharmaceuticals that are meant to combat anxiety such as Xanax could leave you with worse side effects than when you started. Many of these side effects include:

    -Worsened anxiety



    -Sleeping problems (insomnia)

    -Swelling in hands and feet

    -muscle weakness, lack of balance or coordination, slurred speech.





    -Upset stomach

    -Appetite or weight changes

    -Loss of interest in sex

    -Nausea/ vomiting

    -Memory problems


    One of the most natural and easy ways to curb anxiety is by using pure CBD oil. CBD oil doesn't have any psychoactive effects and can be taken sublingually (under the tongue). This is an ideal alternative to those who want to avoid THC which could be incompatible to those who suffer from anxiety. THC might induce undesirable effects that could increase anxiety in uses such as:

    -Rapid heart rate



    -Poor coordination

    -Trouble breathing

    -Panic attacks

    And in comparison to CBD, THC doesn't yield nearly as many benefits. Some of the key benefits that THC offers are:

    -Pain relief

    -Reduces nausea and vomiting

    -Suppresses muscle spasms

    -Stimulates appetite

    For many, these benefits aren't desired or necessary.

    For some conditions, cannabis users swear by combining CBD, THC, and multiple other compounds in marijuana. But when it comes to curbing anxiety, CBD should suffice when used by itself.

  • I've suffered with terrible stomach problems since I was 18 (now 35), and it started after I was put on antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and the birth control pill. These poisonous prescription medications eventually turned me into a zombie, I was having 10 seizures a day, I was unable to leave the house most days, and I always had terrible pain throughout my digestive tract and abhorrent constipation. I begged my "doctors" to please find alternatives, to take me off the meds. They refused. I quit them all cold turkey and went through hell for 3 months detoxing from them. That was in 2009. Gradually my health improved with better eating and sleeping habits as well as regular meditation. Recently I've gone through some very stressful life events which brought my stomach issues back ten times worse. I couldn't eat almost anything for months. It was found that I had cholecystitis, gallbladder disease, and gallstones. My seizures also started to increase. So i started taking CBD oil 3 times a day since mid-April. I was having at least 5 seizures a week, now I have only had 2 in the last 7 weeks since taking the oil. I had my gallbladder removed, and now between that and the oil, my digestive tract is finally almost back to normal. In early April a friend of mine gave me some of her dried marijuana and I was holding it and suddenly I heard the plant speaking to me. It showed me a vision of a beautiful field of very happy cannabis plants swaying in a gentle breeze under a bright blue and sunny sky. They were filled with happiness and joy, and said that they wanted to help me heal, and that they wanted to help heal mother Gaia and all of humanity. It was so beautiful it reduced me to tears. That's when I decided to take the CBD oil as I do not like smoking and feel the oil would be more healthy. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I recommend that everyone try CBD oil, or any kind of cannabis oil, and lets trust in these wonderful plants ability and eagerness to help us all heal.

  • With the recent legalization of Marijuana in California, many tend to think that the need to have their medical card is redundant. There are still a few benefits of having your medical card.

    What are the benefits of still having your Medical Marijuana Card after Legalization?

    ***For California ONLY***

    1. Lower Taxes

    The percentage of how much taxes you pay on cannabis depends on your medical status:

    Recreational: 25% more tax

    Medical Marijuana Patient: 13.5% more tax

    Patient with State Card: 5% more tax

    Since November 2016, holders of California’s official state-issued medical cannabis patient ID card have been exempted from state sales tax. Other taxes, like the excise tax and any local taxes, will still apply, but this exemption to state sales taxes for medical cannabis products will continue. The state-issued medical ID card is $100 (and $50 for someone on Medi-Cal). If you spend $100 or more a month on medical marijuana, the arrangement will pay for itself.
    Medical cannabis patients will be able to access topicals or tinctures with up to 2,000 mg of THC. And these medical patients will also be able to legally purchase otherwise contraband edibles. Products that don’t abide by the new 100 mg rule will be able to be sold in medical dispensaries until July 1, provided they’re affixed with a label identifying them as strong medicine.

    2. More cultivation and possession quantities.

    Recreational marijuana rules in California dictate that citizens can grow six plants at home and keep an ounce on them.

    Prop. 215, California’s medical-marijuana law, provides for patient access to as much marijuana as their medical need requires, though most cities and counties have set specific limits that are nonetheless more permissive than Prop. 64. Exactly how much more depends on where you live.

    3. Access to Stronger Medicine

    Medical cannabis patients will be able to access topicals or tinctures with up to 2,000 mg of THC. And these medical patients will also be able to legally purchase otherwise contraband edibles. Products that don’t abide by the new 100 mg rule will be able to be sold in medical dispensaries until July 1, provided they’re affixed with a label identifying them as strong medicine.

    4. Full dispensary access state-wide.

    Not every city and county with thriving medical-marijuana markets has passed laws allowing for adult-use sales on the first day of the year. To avoid running low and to avoid the disappointment of being turned away for lack of (medical) paper, best to keep yours active. At the least, you’ll walk away from the same dispensary as adult-use customers with a cheaper product.

    5. Receive medical advice and a check-up from a licensed MD.

    By getting an in-person examination, you can receive personalized medical advise from a knowledgeable and experienced doctor. Don't rely on dispensary employees to give you advice on how to best heal your ailments. Doctors at Organic Medirex can give you customized CBD dosing information and further information catering to your specific needs.

    Aside from these benefits, remember that in the eyes of the law it is always preferred to be viewed as a medical patient and not a recreational user. Think of how it will look if you were to get pulled over with Cannabis in the car or if you were to have to go to court. Try to have as much documentation to support your usage as possible and remember that Cannabis is still considered to be a Schedule l Drug on a Federal level- no matter if you're in a legal state of not.
