This is my CBDfx Chill Shot review. I needed a pick me up at work today on this day of 4/20. It just seemed fitting. So, I took this around 12:00pm in the middle of the day. Around this time, I’m already somewhat bored and need a perk up. I grabbed the CBDfx Chill Shot out of the fridge and gave it a go.
It has a natural citric smell that's not overbearing. It also has a lemony taste to it. If you have tried other shots like red bull you will notice a difference. The CBDfx Chill Shot was like taking a punch. The taste really hit you. After taking CBD tinctures over the past few months I slightly enjoyed the different flavor that hit me for the first time.
Half hour later I feel a rush of energy. I can feel my body energized. It's an awesome rush. Imagine the feeling about being around people who are all excited and you are feeding off each other.
There's a body of research showing that painkiller abuse and overdose are lower in states with medical marijuana laws. These studies have generally assumed that when medical marijuana is available, pain patients are increasingly choosing pot over powerful and deadly prescription narcotics. But that's always been just an assumption.
Now a new study, released in the journal Health Affairs, validates these findings by providing clear evidence of a missing link in the causal chain running from medical marijuana to falling overdoses. Ashley and W. David Bradford, a daughter-father pair of researchers at the University of Georgia, scoured the database of all prescription drugs paid for under Medicare Part D from 2010 to 2013.
Last week on the blog, we noted that there are 480 identified chemical compounds in the cannabis plant, and we told you about one class of compounds that make cannabis an effective medicine: cannabinoids. This week, we wanted to dive deeper into the healing properties of cannabis by examining another group of medicinal chemicals found in cannabis: terpenes.
Unlike cannabinoids, terpenes are found in many plants; they’re the chemicals that give a plant its aroma and flavor. Different levels of terpenes in different strains of cannabis are what give it a more earthy, fruity, or skunky smell and taste. In addition to stimulating our senses, many of these terpenes have medicinal effects. There are 120 terpenes found in cannabis, but let’s just look at the top 5 terpenes that help your body heal:
Introducing the brand new, State of the Art CBDfx Vape Kit!
An infant is back home after traveling with her family to Colorado, where she became the youngest patient to be treated with a controversial cannabis oil.
Amylea Nunez suffered from frequent and debilitating seizures that sometimes prevented her from waking up for a full day, and she was diagnosed shortly after her December birth with a rare form of epilepsy, reported KRQE-TV.
“There’s times were she would only wake up every other day,” said her father, Ernie Nunez. “Just sitting there while she’s having a seizure, it’s horrible and there’s nothing you can do. The worst one was an hour long.”
An acute brain insult can cause a spectrum of primary and secondary pathologies including increased risk for epilepsy, mortality and neurodegeneration. The endocannabinoid system, involved in protecting the brain against network hyperexcitability and excitotoxicity, is profoundly dysregulated by acute brain insults. We hypothesize that post-insult dysregulation of the endocannabinoid signaling may contribute to deleterious effects of an acute brain injury and potentiation of endocannabinoid transmission soon after an insult may reduce its pathological outcomes. Effects of an acute post-insult administration of the endocannabinoid receptor agonist WIN55,212-2 on early seizure occurrence, animal mortality and hippocampal cell loss were studied in the lithium-pilocarpine status model. A single dose of WIN55,212-2 (5mg/kg) administered four hours after the end of status epilepticus (SE) reduced the incidence of early seizures during the first two post-SE days though did not change their duration and latency. Brief 4-6-Hz spike-wave discharges appeared de novo in the latent post-SE period and the acute administration of WIN55,212-2 also reduced the incidence of the epileptiform events. A single dose of WIN55,212-2 administered soon after SE improved survival of animals and reduced cell loss in the dentate hilus but did not prevent appearance of spontaneous recurrent seizures in the chronic period. Thus, a brief pharmacological stimulation of the endocannabinoid system soon after a brain insult exerts beneficial effects on its pathological outcome though does not prevent epileptogenesis.
A multidisciplinary team including researchers from the Montreal Neurological Institute has improved our understanding of how cannabinoids, the active agent in marijuana, affect vision in vertebrates.
Scientists used a variety of methods to test how tadpoles react to visual stimuli when they’ve been exposed to increased levels of exogenous or endogenous cannabinoids. Exogenous cannabinoids are artificially introduced drugs, whereas endogenous cannabinoids occur naturally in the body.
Cannabinoid receptors play a vital role in our bodies; several vital roles, in fact. While the government likes to tell us that “stimulating our receptors” is bad for us, the truth is exactly the opposite. Let’s take a look at their history and why these receptors are so important.
The history of cannabinoids
In 1964, a study of the cannabis plant by Raphael Macheoulam, an Israeli professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Natural Products at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel uncovered for the first time the active substance THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), in addition to CBD, CBG, and other compounds.
New Law on "Liquid Nicotine Containers" Requires Certificates from Each Manufacturer/Importer of E-Liquids

On July 26, 2016, the Children's Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act (CNPPA), Pub. L. 114-116, 130 Stat. 3 (Jan. 28, 2016), will become effective and will require manufacturers of nicotine-containing e-liquids to comply with the child-resistant packaging and testing requirements set forth in the Poison Packaging Prevention Act of 1970 (PPPA), Pub. L. 91-601, 84 Stat. 1,670 (Dec. 30, 1970).
Specifically, the law applies to "liquid nicotine containers," defined to include "package[s] from which nicotine in a solution or other form is accessible through normal and foreseeable use by a consumer and that is used to hold soluble nicotine in any concentration." Thus, bottles of nicotine-containing e-liquid sold directly to consumers for use in refillable "open-system" vaping devices are covered. For more background on the CNPPA, see here.
