CBD oil or Cannabidiol is a constituent of agricultural hemp, a plant belonging to the genus Cannabis class. It is a coarse bushy plant with palmate leaves and clusters of small green flowers. One of the unusual features of CBD is that it has a non-psychoactive property which is in contradiction to the wide variety of variants of Cannabis which is loaded with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

The absence of the recreation element in CBD oil and the fact that it does not have negative impacts on cognitive functions combined with its therapeutic qualities have grabbed the attention of medical and business communities. There is substantial evidence suggesting that the miraculous oil derived from CBD can be used as a safe method to address long-term chronic pain and a range of other medical conditions. While researchers are interested in the hidden benefits of CBD, the business community has already started offering CBD in oil, tablet and, spray forms.

One of the unusual features of CBD is that it has a non-psychoactive property

While some people are nervous to use a product which contains cannabis, as it is a banned substance in most of the countries, the bottom line is that the oil derived from cannabis boasts extremely low percentage of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). However, the potential health benefits of CBD have started an exciting wave of debate across the globe, especially in the U.S. While cannabis in its classic form is legally out of the reach of ordinary people, its THC free cousin has generated admirable attention. However, there is still a lot of confusion when it comes to the question of cannabis legalization.

Because it belongs to the family of cannabis, most governments, especially the U.S states seem apprehensive about freeing it from the drug schedule. Some of the cannabis variants and their extracts are listed as a schedule I drugs because of their potential for abuse which may ultimately lead to severe psychological and physical dependence.

The growing popularity of CBD has given birth to several questions, the most common being; what is CBD? As mentioned above, CBD oil is derived from agricultural hemp which is high in CBD and low on THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), and it also possesses certain therapeutic constituents which are used to treat ailments such as arthritis, angina, seizures, genetic disorders, and epilepsy. The debate whether it actually helps treat these illnesses is beyond the scope of this post. However, one thing is very clear. CBD does not contain mind-altering property.

Although the benefits of CBD are still under observation through extensive research, it has been proven that CBD is effective in treating children with rare seizure disorder. Yet another area where CBD has proven its mettle is epilepsy. CBD also holds a lot of promise in treating several other ailments such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, psychosis, Parkinson’s disease and in providing general pain relief.

Today, the market is flooded with CBD products such as CBD tincture oil, CBD infused e-juices, tablet and spray forms.


These CBD products contain very low amounts of THC, impressive medicinal constituents such as cannabinoids and terpenes and cause few side effects. In fact, around 43 states have legalized the use and transport of CBD and it looks as though it won’t be too long before it is legal in all 50 states.

However, you need to be cautious as CDB and its health benefits are still undergoing several clinical tests around the world. As a buyer, you should check the label on the package. Does it give the name of the medical adviser? Is it certified by a renowned drug agency and finally, check the cannabinoid content before demanding an invoice.

You can also make your homemade CBD oil while extracting it though marijuana seeds. Make sure to buy organic seeds from trusted dispensaries and various online stores like, etc.

Here are five reasons why CBD oil is the miracle many people have been waiting for.


1. It Can Stop Seizures in Their Tracks

It has been proven that those who use CBD-based medications experience 42% fewer seizures than those using a placebo, making this the most promising study ever conducted. Previous studies have shown CBD oil effective in treating other types of epilepsy, as well. The vast majority of users reported fewer seizures after their initial doses.

2. It Can Stop the Spread of Cancer

Scientists say that there is sufficient evidence that CBD can stop the growth of existing cancers. This means that patients with cancer may be able to use CBD oil to slow or even stop the spread, making their current treatments far more effective and valuable than before.

3. It Can Ease Anxiety

A study focused on CBD’s effect on the brain in patients who had been previously diagnosed with social anxiety disorders. In one of their trials, they gave participants a dose of CBD and then asked them to give a public speech. The results showed that the treatment improved their discomfort, cognitive impairment, speech, and anxiety – all with just one dose.

4. It Can Relieve Pain

Numerous studies have been conducted on CBD oil’s ability to relieve pain. In fact, a study proved that it was four times more effective than aspirin at relieving pain caused by inflammation, and in Canada, it’s possible to get a CBD drug by prescription of CBD dosage for pain. Scientists believe that CBD works on the vanilloid receptors in the body, which are responsible for pain perception, bodily inflammation, and even body temperature.

5. It Can Help People with Certain Mental Disorders

Antipsychotic drugs are a huge part of the overall pharmaceutical industry. Although they can work for many patients with significant mental disorders ranging from schizophrenia to bipolar disorder, they are fraught with side effects and often leave patients lethargic. Studies have shown that CBD oil can complement these therapies and provide a further improvement in symptoms.


CBD oil is a true elixir. Scientists, researchers, and even pharmaceutical companies around the world are studying it very closely. It’s already legalized in numerous states, and even where it isn’t, there are various other options available.

Swallowing supplements is part of everyday life for workout fanatics. From energy bars to protein shakes and so much more, it gives them the added boost they need to achieve their fitness goals. However, more and more, people are confessing to consuming cannabis before their exercise routine, making marijuana the hottest new workout supplement. From bodybuilders to professional sportspeople, it seems near everyone is now using cannabis at the gym.

From bodybuilders to professional sportspeople, it seems near everyone is now using cannabis at the gym.

Marijuana is now one of the most used substances for fitness junkies across the United States. Proudly calling themselves “cannathletes,” they insist that pot improves their entire workout experience. A doctor at Massachusetts General Hospital and contributor to the Harvard Health Blog, Dr. Peter Grinspoon, puts this into some perspective for us:


“It is a weird phenomenon, but it is an increasingly common phenomenon. The fact that a lot of people are saying it helps them cannot be ignored.” – Dr. Peter Grinspoon


While the average American may associate weed with lazy days on the couch scoffing a pantry full of Doritos, different cannabis strains affect people differently. Sativa strains, in particular, can provide a much-needed dose of energy, while improving mental focus at the same time, both of which are highly valuable to anyone wanting to complete a workout successfully.


Furthermore, marijuana has powerful painkilling properties that can greatly diminish the burn people feel not only during hard exercise, but afterwards as well. This makes it possible for people to persevere and overcome barriers in their routines that they otherwise would not be able to do. Of course, this is all anecdotal evidence, but with so many people saying it, even scientists are now taking notice.

Cannabis can help improve performance at the gym, during training and on the playing field

Effects of Cannabis on Exercise


Although research is scant in this area, the little there is seems to support this phenomenon well. Weed is now so popular in the fitness world that people are actually offering marijuana workout services. You can find cannabis yoga classes in most states where recreational of medical marijuana is legal, and California even hosts the 420 Games, where stoned participants compete in the activities amid much skunky sweat.


What does the science say? How exactly does weed help athletes?


·         Pot Increases Metabolism


Research shows some strains of marijuana speed up metabolism. This makes it easier to shed weight, as it maintains the metabolism at a steady high that guarantees a fat-burning workout. In fact, it helps burn fat even when you are not exercising. It also tricks the brain into feeling hungry. This makes it easier for bodybuilders to bulk up before lifting sessions, as well as to swallow their six meals a day.

One study, published in Men’s Journal, suggests that, “The compounds THCV and cannabidiol found in marijuana may help raise metabolism, speed fat loss and lower cholesterol.” A more recent Canadian study, published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, delved into the metabolic effects of smoking pot. It found weed smokers with notably lower Body Mass Indexes, or BMIs, and lower insulin levels.

This suggests that pot lovers are processing sugars at healthier rates than non-users, and that they carry significantly less fat too. They are also unlikely to develop Type 2, or adult-onset, diabetes, a known cause of obesity. Simplified, this means a Sativa strain taken before exercising can trim inches off waists, or for bulkers, an Indica strain will make you hungry and more able to load yourself on carbohydrates.


·         Ganja Lowers Anxiety and Improves Stamina


Marijuana can motivate even the laziest of sods to get up and going. It will pump you up before a workout session, getting you there even on the longest, most stressful days. It heightens awareness, making one alert, while, at the same time, eliminating the stresses of gym and making you not care how well others look or perform. No more of the anxiety comparing yourself to them can cause.


It also focuses the mind, which boosts stamina. Professor at Stanford Medical School, Keith Humphreys, explained, “We have cannabinoid receptors throughout our brains, and when THC hits those receptors, it triggers a system that reduces anxiety. That you would feel more aggressive is a natural reaction to the drug.”


Pot also releases the feel-good chemical, dopamine. It regulates brain activity and, as shown in recent lab tests on subjects given high doses of weed for weeks, there is no decrease in productivity or motivation. In fact, the U.S. National Library of Medicine proves the opposite true: Subjects have more focus, alertness, and are “in the zone,” completing feats of stamina they would not achieve without it.


·         Weed Aids Muscle Recovery


Cancer patients use medical marijuana in droves for a reason: The U.S. National Library of Medicine explains how it is a strong painkiller able to relieve even most chronic of muscular pain. Athletes swear that they can do more squats high than not, and they feel less pain. Accidents also do not hurt as much, and muscular burn becomes near insignificant. It also aids in the recovery of sore and damaged muscles.


Athletes typically treat sports-related injuries with some nasty, addictive drugs prescribed by their doctors. These include analgesics, opiates, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, or NSAIDs, and even muscle relaxants. Side effects are dangerous, potentially lethal. Weed is much safer and it is just as effective, if not more so.


Marijuana can greatly reduce muscle soreness associated with the buildup of lactic acid. Athletes experience notably less stiffness after an intense workout. Instead of spending days recovering from sore and stiff muscles, they are smoking a spliff and getting straight back into their fitness routines, without any pain or side effects.


·         Herb Improves Performance


Colorado gym owner, Clifford Drusinsky, who frequently holds training sessions with stoned gym members, told Men’s Journal in an interview that, “Marijuana relaxes me and allows me to go into a controlled, meditational place. When I get high, I train smarter and focus on form.” Weed distorts perception, including perceptions of pain. This increases a person’s pain threshold.


In high contact sports especially, such as lacrosse, wrestling, football and rugby, not feeling pain allows players to continue playing, even performing better. One particular runner explained, “If I do not smoke before a run, I am constantly thinking about the miles and how much further I have to go, rather than just enjoying the experience.” Weed allows her to cover more miles without even realizing it.


According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, studies are underway to determine the effects of weed on athletic performance. Although still unclear, results do show some athletes performing well long after they would otherwise collapse. More and more, sportspeople are using cannabis to relax themselves so that they can narrow their focus into doing what they love. Logic dictates it must help.


Conclusion: Marijuana is the hottest new workout supplement


Getting high means just that. Several studies show that ganja can induce the same feelings of euphoria that exercising can, as it activates the same pathways in the brain as working out does. The endocannabinoid system has the job of easing pain, relieving stress, controlling appetite, influencing mood, and even affecting perception and memory, and cannabis regulates the endocannabinoid system.


Puffing a joint can increase the amount of energy you are able to expend, as it increases blood pressure and heart rate, and it does so for several hours at a time. It is no wonder that more and more sportspeople worldwide are turning to weed for help, supplementing even their other supplements for this powerful, miraculous plant.

Marijuana is a widely debated topic among criminal justice advocates, politicians, and recreational users alike. Over the last decade, sweeping forward movement has taken place in the legal arena in regards to legalization of the drug for medicinal purposes. However, there is a lag in creating more lenient laws and regulations surrounding recreational use. While many have personal opinions about why marijuana should – or should not – become legal across the United States, one thing is clear. Support for legalization is growing in noticeable ways, for a myriad of reasons.  Here are 10 Reasons Why Support for Legalization of Marijuana is Increasing in the United States.

#1 – The Gateway Drug Myth

One of the reasons leading up to nationwide prohibition against marijuana use on a recreational level was predicated on the belief that the drug was a gateway to other, more harmful illegal substances. Marijuana users were thought to be far more likely to use cocaine, heroin, and other substances than those who had never tried pot. While this has some truth behind it, recent reports show that correlation is not the same as causation. Just under half of Americans have tried marijuana, but less than 15% have taken cocaine, and only 2% have tried heroin. The update to the gateway drug myth has led many to shift toward supporting legalization.


#2 – Enforcing Criminalization is Expensive

According to a Human Rights Watch study in partnership with the ACLU, an estimated 600,000 people were arrested for marijuana possession in 2016 alone. Criminalization of the drug costs American taxpayers a hefty amount each year in keeping these “criminals” behind bars (in jail) or moving through the court system. Legalizing the drug could mean less money spent on these efforts, and more funding used for other criminal justice initiatives.


Marijuana Industry Growth

The Marijuana Industry is Poised to Create jobs and 11 Billion Dollars in Revenue

#3 – Americans Widely Support the Move

Early in 2018, Canada announced a plan to legalize marijuana use recreationally by the middle of the summer, which offers some boost to the number of Americans supporting the move in the US. A recent Pew Research study reveals that nearly 57% of adults in America believe that marijuana should be legal, with 37% feeling strongly that it should remain illegal. As countries make unprecedented moves to legalize marijuana use, many individuals are likely to follow suit.


#4 – Potential for Economic Growth

One glaring reason for the increase in support for legalization is the potential for economic growth over time. Looking at states that have already taken steps to legalize marijuana for recreational use shows great promise in terms of monetary gain. Colorado, for example, generated $750 million in the first half of 2017 from legal pot sales, a portion of which goes to licensing and bonding fees that benefit the state and its residents. Other states legalizing the drug may have similar results which lay the groundwork for increased job numbers, lower unemployment, and strong economic environments on a local and state level.


#5 – Increased Tax Revenue

Following economic growth, tax revenues generated from legal marijuana sales also show incredible promise, especially for cash-strapped state and local governments. Keeping Colorado as an example, between July 2014 and June 2015, the state received $70 million in taxes from legalized pot. While that’s impressive, it doesn’t compare to the following fiscal year which brought in an estimated $200 million in tax revenue.


#6 – Decrease in Violent Crime

Research shows that legalizing marijuana sales on a state level does not correlate with an increase in violent crimes. In fact, taking away the gang and cartel-related activity from the criminalization of the drug may ultimately reduce violent crime in states where sales are legal.


#7 – Positive Health Benefits

Aside from crime reduction and positive economic effects, the legalization of marijuana also has known health benefits. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine published a study that there is definitive evidence that marijuana use is an effective treatment for individuals with chronic pain. It is also known to relieve muscle spasms, menstrual cramps, migraines, and treat glaucoma in some patients.


#8 – Mental Health Support

Above and beyond physical health benefits, marijuana use is also known to provide positive mental health effects. For example, researchers share that weed may relieve anxiety when taken in small doses, and it may prove beneficial in jumpstarting the creative process for many. While these benefits are less advantageous than physical health advantages, they are adding to increased support for legalization.


#9 – Less Lethal than Other Drugs

Another reason legalization of marijuana is growing in popularity is the revelation that other drugs currently legal to use within the United States are more harmful than pot when used on a regular basis. Alcohol and tobacco cause more than 500,000 deaths each year, and they lead to several illnesses and injuries that have a widespread impact on society. Marijuana, or cannabis, the English language name for the drug, is a non-toxic substance that has never caused a fatal overdose.


#10 – Lower Addiction Rates

Compared to widely used pharmaceuticals, including painkillers and anti-anxiety medications, marijuana is known to be less addictive. The lower addiction rate to the natural drug means less of an impact on society as a whole, and far lower costs for medical care among users and non-users alike.


Each of these reasons alone or in combination with the others offers a glimpse into why the legalization of marijuana is becoming more accepted among adult Americans. Over the next several years, time will tell if the increased interest in legalization has enough to stand on in state and federal courts.

Since I posted these Jay Leiderman Law Shirts two days ago on Instagram (pix below), I’ve gotten a lot of emails and messages asking for these shirts to be sent around the Country. I can’t afford to send that many all over the place, though I’m happy to give the shirts away for free. I’ve been told to ask for what our typical postage is; to ask for $5 for postage for one shirt, $7 for two and apparently it’s going to cost $11 for 3. I think it’s tacky but I don’t have a choice. Please send to my PayPal: but email me first to see if I can work it out with no postage.  Again, I’m happy to send the shirts themselves on me. I can order more, as I’m sure to run out.
