CBD vs Inflammation - a better, safer alternative to NSAIDs

With there being so many different varieties of CBD available, there's a method for nearly everyone looking to benefit from CBD's many medicinal properties. From left to right, there's CBD in the forms of crumble, capsules, refillable vape, topical cream, tinctures & a pre-filled CBD cartridge for vapes.

Inflammation: What causes it? 
•Inflammation is defined as: a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.

•Inflammation is our body’s natural response to harmful cells and pathogens. It acts as a protective measure against the initial damage suffered by the immune system. The condition is divided into Acute & Chronic categories. Acute pain comes on suddenly & from something specific. Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for 12 or more weeks. It can be caused by an injury, disease or something unknown.  

NSAIDs vs Our Bodies: What are NSAIDs?
•Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are the most common pharmaceutical treatment for inflammation. They include:
* Aspirin
* Ibuprofen
* Celebrex
* Naproxen

•One of the main issues with NSAIDs such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen, in particular, is that people turn to taking them regularly without realizing the formidable range of side effects such nausea, abdominal discomfort, heartburn, rash etc.

•More serious side effects include possible liver and kidney failure, ulcers (which is why I can not take them) & prolonged bleeding after sustaining an injury or after surgery. Even more worryingly, NSAIDs increase the risk of potentially fatal strokes and heart attacks.

How CBD Combats Inflammation 
•CBD is long associated with anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive qualities, & the clamor for this cannabinoid has increased significantly since the FDA approved it as a food supplement.

Arguably the most exciting studies relating to CBD and inflammation have shown that it is the strongest of all anti-inflammatory options, beating off stiff competition from Omega-3, vitamin C & various antioxidants. Several compounds within marijuana help reduce inflammation, but CBD is arguably the most effective

The two main cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system are CB1 and CB2. While THC is more effective when dealing with CB1 (controls perception, mood, sleep, memory, and appetite), CBD has a greater impact on the CB2 receptor (affects the immune system). Since inflammation is an ‘immune response,’ it is important for any compound to focus on the CB2 receptor to reduce inflammation. While CBD is not the only known cannabis compound to activate the CB2 receptor, it is the most abundant.

•While NSAIDs provide you with reasonably fast-acting relief, the positive effects are only temporary and are often accompanied by awful side effects.
In contrast, CBD is all-natural and it comes in a variety of forms including; oils, gummies, edibles, tinctures, ointments and more.

Royal Review: Alpen Organics 1000mg Extra Strength CBD Tincture

ROYAL REVIEW: Alpen Organics 1000mg Extra Strength CBD Tincture Like every product I’ve received from Alpen Organics, my 1000mg Extra Strength CBD Tincture arrived VERY quickly & 100% perfectly intact.  The day it arrived, I’d yet to dose my 1st round of daily CBD, so I began then & there, around 12:30pm. Due to the fact that I do medicate with CBD multiple times daily, my tolerance is high. This particular product is a VERY high dose, which has been absolutely perfect for me since the 1st time medicating with this tincture.  I’ve been medicating with Alpen Organics 1000mg CBD Tincture by putting my desired dose under my tongue & holding it there for 10-15 seconds (recommended use) as well as putting it into my homemade, healthy smoothies, as the tincture is completely tasteless, making it ideal for adding to beverages! ☕️🥤 🌤 Along with a healthy eating style & therapy, starting my days with a sublingual dose (under the tongue) of Alpen Organics 100

Royal Review: “The Stash Pipe”

Royal Review: “The Stash Pipe” Hello & welcome to today’s review, Royal Fam, I hope you’re all having an excellent day, so far! Today’s Royal Review is about a unique little product. What is it, you ask? It’s “The Stash Pipe”, handmade by Colorado artist CagwinManchen! A pipe & stash jar combined! My Royal Review  I looked at this piece a lot before I finally ordered it. I saw it on CagwinManchen’s Etsy store ( click here to visit their store on Etsy)while ordering the ashtray that was the prize for my Pride Giveaway. After thinking about this piece for a bit, I decided to give it a try! My royal blue, handmade stash pipe arrived in perfect condition two days after I ordered it. The Stash Pipe features an authentic cork that fits perfectly snug for your nugs! It’s made of ceramic with lead-free glazing & is dishwasher safe (though hand washing is recommended). The Stash Pipe’s actual pipe is connected to the stash jar, but the smoke DOES NOT com

ROYAL REVIEW: @legalshemp CBD Hemp Flower

  Plenty of  Legals Hemp. Hello Royal Family! Today I’ll be reviewing Legals Hemp CBD Hemp Flower...& what a review! I’ve tried quite a few strains by Legals Hemp. Everything from their small batch reserve, Cloud Nine to Secret Sauce, which is en route to my castle currently. I’ll start with the small batch reserve, Cloud Nine. First of all, good luck finding it! Due to the fact that it is a small batch reserve, not many were released. I was lucky enough to find it at a local store. I enjoyed half of it when getting home. I was on cloud nine! It gave me a great synergetic burst of energy without being over the top. I’d compare the feeling to a cup of coffee without the unwanted side effects such as the jitters. I felt energetic & my muscles felt great due to the CBD. Elektra was very similar to the small batch reserve, Cloud Nine, in my opinion. It’s a hybrid with beautiful orange & red hues. It smells & tastes like red wine, chocolate & citrus. Elektra was actual
