If you happen to consume too much of an edible, you can be in for a long journey that can seem overwhelming and unpleasant. Research and experience has shown the following remedies that may help expedite the process.
BLACK PEPPERCORNS CAN REDUCE YOUR HIGH
If you don't normally keep whole black peppercorns on hand, add some to your emergency stash. Just sniffing them is enough to calm some people's anxiety and paranoia. If that doesn't do the trick, chewing on them is like a magic bullet for runaway highs. Try it—I swear it works, and the research agrees. Just like cannabis, black pepper contains terpenes that can bind to the endocannabinoid receptors in your brain. When the pepper ties up all those receptors, it locks out the THC. As your brain becomes less activated by THC, your high starts to drop. See, it's science!
BURN IT OFF
Racing thoughts won't let you relax? Instead of fighting it, get up and do something instead. Just leave the driving and operating heavy equipment alone until you feel like yourself again. As long as you stay within familiar surroundings and you're not dizzy, you're good to go for a run, take a walk, or enjoy a little yoga.
Not only is exercise a great distraction; the same chemical process that's responsible for the legendary runner's high can chill an edible high that's out of control. Exercise triggers your body to produce an endocannabinoid called anandamide, which can help much like the black peppercorns. Plus, all that breathing and blood flow helps speed up your body's natural ability to clear THC from your system
CBD IS KIND OF LIKE A THC ANTIDOTE
Science and experimentation have proven that CBD works directly against THC. Cannabis with low CBD and high THC will naturally give you a more mental high. As CBD content starts to increase in relation to THC, the reverse happens. The effect becomes more calm, soothing, physical and much less psychoactive.
If you're feeling way too high, try taking some CBD oil . You could eat an edible containing mostly CBD, but that'll take hours to bring you down just like it took you hours to get too high. Instead, keep some CBD oil on hand for such occasions.
Restless leg syndrome, or RLS, is a disorder that affects millions of people. Although it may not necessarily hurt, it makes the legs feel very uneasy. RLS feels like an irresistible urge to move, which can be accompanied by uncomfortable sensations in your lower limbs that are unlike normal sensations experienced by someone without the disorder. The sensations in your legs may feel like aching, throbbing, pulling, itching, crawling, or creeping.
If you're one of the millions of people affected by Restless Leg Syndrome, you've probably tried everything to help get rid of this syndrome that can keep you up at night. But did you know that RLS may be alleviated naturally with the aid of essential oils.
Below is the list of essential oils we use in our Restless Leg Syndrome Spray.

If you want to cook with cannabis and don't want to infuse your flower, you can masserate your decarboxylated product in a food processor and grind it down to a fine dust to make Cannabis Flour.
Cooking with Cannabis flour involves consuming the whole plant. We don’t use the stems, but we use all the leaves and buds. Not only is it a fiber boost and loaded with great nutrients and medicine, it’s a super simple preparation. The only downside might be the taste. If you have an aversion to cannabis flavor, this might not be the method for you. That said, with the right amount of sugar and spice you can mask the taste fairly well.
To use, replace up to ¼ (25%) of the flour the recipes calls for with your cannabis flour. Sift the regular flour and cannabis flour together right before using in your recipe to blend the two together. Sifting together is very important for consistent dosing throughout your baked goods, so take your time and mix well.
When cooking with canna-flour, do not exceed temperatures of 340°F. Since the plant has a strong flavor, you may need to increase the other strong flavors in your dish to balance out the taste, such as sugar and spices.
After the process is completed use immediatley or, you can store any leftover flour in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for several months or store in the freezer to preserve the potency of it for a longer period of time.
Cannabis flour, how to cook with cannabis
CANNABIS OIL POWDER
Are you looking for a new cannabis infusion method to make tasty edibles that can kick in quickly, in just 15-20 minutes? Make your own water soluble Cannabis Oil Powder. Made with simple ingredients this powder can be added to any dish without affecting the taste, smell, or flavor. If you've turned your nose up at edibles in the past, this might be a good solution for you.
Add it into your favorite recipe or mix it with water or any other beverage for a quick, easy-to-measure dose of cannabis. Unlike cannabis flower or concentrates, cannabis powder is water-soluble, meaning it allows you to infuse recipes or drinks not necessarily rich in fats. Does not mix in *perfectly* with drinks, but is a great option to try out. No cooking required. Just mix, use, or store.
One thing to note, this recipe requires a large amount of maltodextrin to oil ratio to make the infusion - meaning your final product may not be as potent as you want it.
Supplies You Need:
Step 1: Add the maltodextrin powder and sunflower lecithin to a medium-sized bowl and whisk together.
Step 2: Gradually add in the cannabis oil while you continuously stir the powder with a spoon or whisk until the oil blends with the powder.
Step 3: Once the powder and oil have combined well, run the powder through a fine mesh sieve or flour sifter for a finer end product.
Store the prepared powder in an airtight container, like a mason jar, in a cool dark place, until ready to use.
All-Natural & Nutrient DensePure Mango Butter is a completely plant-based ingredient made from pure mango. The process uses a special cold-pressing and steam-refinement method that helps to preserve the butter’s most precious and beneficial components. Loaded with vitamins like A and E, essential fatty acids, and natural antioxidants, Mango Butter can be extremely nourishing to both the hair and skin.
Just as your body is nourished from within by eating healthy food, your skin is best cared for by the application of high-quality ingredients. Pure plant-based butters, like Mango Butter, can help to supplement your skin with the conditioning and nourishing components it needs to stay its healthy, beautiful best.
Light & Non-GreasyMango Butter has a remarkable texture that is light and non-greasy but also creamy and highly moisturizing. This smooth butter glides on easily and absorbs into the skin and hair with ease. The consistency melts so beautifully- you’ll love it!
Surprisingly RichNaturally, pure Mango Butter is much richer than commercial body butters that have been blended with fillers and additives like water, alcohol, preservatives and other chemicals. When used as-is, Mango Butter will feel more like a body oil on your skin than a lotion. If you are new to using pure butters, this may take a little getting used to, but you’ll quickly fall in love with how soft and happy your skin feels after moisturizing with Mango Butter.
Long-Lasting MoistureRemember those additives we just mentioned? Well, commercial moisturizers are usually packed with them. Fillers, like water and mineral oil, are used to bulk up products like lotions and hair conditioners – but these ingredients do very little to benefit skin or hair. Additives, like alcohol, silicone, and synthetic fragrances all help make lotions feel like they are helping to hydrate your skin but the effects are usually both brief and superficial. They can even be damaging at times.
Like junk food, highly processed skin care products are often enjoyable to use, but barely nutritious. Sometimes they are even toxic! Pure Mango Butter, on the other hand, gives your skin nothing but an intense boost of moisture that will help keep your skin happy and hydrated with lasting benefit.
Great for All Skin TypesMango Butter is non-comedogenic. That means that it won’t clog pores or aggravate acne-prone skin. This makes Mango Butter a great choice for moisturizing almost any skin type. Dry skin will love the highly-moisturizing emolliency of Mango Butter, while those with sensitive skin will adore using a butter that is 100% pure and free of irritating additives and fragrances.
Mango Butter contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants that make it a wonderful choice for mature skin as well. The rich, nourishing nature of Mango Butter can even help benefit those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Stash-FriendlyPure Mango Butter is naturally free of preservatives, yet remains fresh and stable for up to one whole year as-is. This means you can stock up on your favorite ingredient without worrying about it spoiling. Just be sure to store your butter in an airtight container and keep it away from extreme temperatures, direct light, or moisture.
One of the ways that we holistic healers treat a symptom is similar to the theory of the "hair of the dog that bit you". Expose
To understand the ECS, it first helps to understand what homeostasis is.
Basically, homeostasis is your body's efforts to keep everything in the right zone. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what's going on in the environment around you. Think of all the gauges in the dashboard of a car or airplane. Those all tell the operator whether things are—or aren't—operating in the proper zone.
Just like the electronics in a car or plane, your body works continuously to monitor important levels and functions in your body. Is your temperature too high, too low, or just right? Are your hormone levels what they should be? Is your heart beating too fast? Do you need fuel or rest? Is too much of something building up in your bloodstream or inside of your cells?
When something is operating outside of the right range, your body activates the ECS to help correct it. So when you're really hot and begin to sweat, thank your ECS for working to cool you down. Stomach growling? That's your ECS helping remind you to eat because you need fuel.
The ECS does this via cannabinoid receptors found in select tissues. We have (at least) two types of cannabinoid receptors:
Through those receptors, the ECS helps regulate a lot of important functions, such as:
Then, once the endocannabinoids have done their job and brought things into balance, certain enzymes come along to break them down and prevent them from going too far and upsetting the balance in the opposite direction.
It's a precise response.
That's different from what happens if someone smokes marijuana and floods their system with cannabinoids. Then the drug has wide-ranging impacts on physiology, some of which may be beneficial while others may be harmful.
Homeostasis is essential to our health and survival, so when the ECS isn't working properly, it can cause a lot of problems for you.
Because cannabis products can stimulate activity of the ECS, they're obvious targets for potential treatments, and a ton of research is going on around the world. We also have medications made from synthetic (lab-created) cannabinoids, such as the drug nabilone.
We're already seeing a lot of research on cannabinoid-based treatments and we're likely to see more as we gain a better understanding of the system and the substances. Changes in legal status have also driven research.
Copaiba esssential oil is a great natural solution for pain relief, infections and skin health. The Copaiba tree grows up to 100 feet tall. Tapping a single tree can give up to twelve gallons of gum resin a season.
Studies have found that the main compound found in this ant-inflammatory and anti-septic essential oil is beta-caryophyllene, a pain killing agent, and a terpene found in cannabis.T est results have identified bcp as a non-psychoactive cb2 receptor.Research has found the this helps to block the detection of painful or injurious stimulus.
Not only a pain reliever, but Copaiba can also help to reduce liver tissue damage caused by acetaminophens. Research has shown that it is also helpful in acting as a natural acne cure, as well as speed up skin healing.
We use Copaiba in all of our products to not only add its own healing properties, but to enhance the healing properties of the other ingredients.
In the mid-1990s, renowned Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechaoulam, professor of Medicinal Chemistry at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, made an exciting discovery that would forever change how we look at our biological relationship to plant medicine. Dr. Mechaoulam discovered a subtle system within the body that seemed to have a balancing effect on every other system. He called it the Endocannabinoid (EC) System and it can be found in all mammals, including humans.
The EC system consists of a series of molecular receptors that are designed to receive cannabinoids. In particular this includes cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as well as other related substances such as cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabinol (CBN).
Prior research in the 1980s led Mechaoulam and others to pinpoint two main receptors for cannabinoids − cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2). Researchers at the time also defined the natural substances called endocannabinoids, which our body produces on its own in a similar way it produces endorphins. Phytocannabinoids (namely THC, CBD, and their variants), on the other hand, come directly from the cannabis plant.
Cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 are designed by the body to be specific targets for THC, while our natural endocannabinoids help to synthesize it. The process of THC-cannabinoid receptor binding and what this does for the body is what researchers have been studying for over two decades. They are doing this in order to find out exactly how cannabis works in healing cancer.
Microbiologist Dr. Christine Sanchez of Compultense Univeristy in Madrid, Spain has been studying cannabinoids and cancer since the early 2000s. She was the first to discover the antitumor effects of cannabinoids.
“We now know that the endocannabinoid system regulates a lot of biological functions such as appetite, food intake, motor function, reproduction and many others and that is why the plant has such a wide therapeutic potential,” says Dr. Sanchez in a video interview for the web-based cable channel Cannabis Planet.
