Understanding Cannabinoids: CBN vs CBD
While there are many cannabinoids that may enhance the therapeutic effects of hemp products, the most common renowned product is the phytochemicals in the Cannabis genus that contain the tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. This is the substance that is responsible for all of the psychoactive effects of cannabis. CBD has long been associated with the variety that offers up the best help benefits without offering up the high that the THC gives to users.

What’s The Difference Between CBD And CBN?
Cannabis has a number of cannabinoids in which the most abundant are the levels of THC. There are 9 tetrahydrocannabinol as well as CBD and CBN. This is the active ingredient that makes you high. The THC is in the plant and the CBD is the precursor and the CBN is the metabolite of the THC. As the cannabis ages, the THC level breaks down into the CBN.
This also leads researchers to believe that the CBD might give some protection against ecstasy-derived neurotoxins or long-term depletion of the serotonergic receptions. While this is still speculation, it’s investigating further. The CBD is usually present in significant enough quantities in such products as hashish or cannabis resins. However,r it’s also in the herbal cannabis referred to as skunk in smaller amounts.
Overall, the CBN is a great cannabinoid that offers up a varied range of therapeutic applications that work together with the rest of the “team” in order to offer up the best possible results. Clearly, more clinical trials are required to see how else it can benefit patients.

In a historic move, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency granted approval for a nonprofit to study marijuana's medical benefits on military veterans suffering from combat-related psychological disorders.
The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a California-based nonprofit that studies medical uses of psychotropic drugs, will conduct the clinical trial, which will be a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial using the whole plant (not an extract or pill version). The trial is the first in U.S. history to receive full approval from the DEA and FDA.
The study will examine whether medical marijuana can treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in 76 U.S. military veterans. The veterans have treatment-resistant PTSD and haven't found relief from other medications. The study will look into how different strains and doses of marijuana can benefit the veterans and look into potential side effects, a press release from MAPS says.
The trial intends to develop "smoked botanical marijuana into a legal prescription drug" approved by the FDA, MAPS says in a statement.
MAPS received a $2.16 million grant from Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to conduct the trial.
"We have been working towards approval since we opened the Investigational New Drug Application (IND) with the FDA in 2010," said Amy Emerson, executive director and director of clinical research for the MAPS Public Benefit Corporation, in a release. "We are thrilled to see this study overcome the hurdles of approval so we can begin gathering the data. This study is a critical step in moving our botanical drug development program forward at the federal level to gather information on the dosing, risks, and benefits of smoked marijuana for PTSD symptoms."
MAPS, which was founded in 1986, has raised over $36 million for psychedelic therapy and research and education in marijuana's medical benefits.
The Health Benefits of Hemp in Animals
As I travel quite frequently I really enjoy finding a local Thai Massage centre wherever I may be, and seeing how their service varies from the many I've experienced, and in particular how they compare with an authentic Thai Massage experience in Thailand. So on my last trip to NSW Australia, I thought I'd see if I could find a great experience of my favourite kind of Massage in Sydney.
Of all the forms of massage therapy that exist, none intrigue me so much as Traditional Thai Massage. Though I am a qualified massage therapist myself, the system that the Thais have developed still fascinates me more than any other. Possibly the only thing that fascinates me even more is how those rather small Thai women can manipulate a man of my size with such strength! That was certainly my experience in Thailand, I wondered if it would be the same if I got a Thai Massage in Sydney.
Thai massage interestingly began in India. It is a system utilizing both Meridian pressure points and stretching in tandem with an ancient breathing method known as "Pranayama." The breathing techniques cleanse and relax the muscles while at the same time strengthen the nervous system.
Many Asian massage systems are actually ancient healing rituals which were created and developed over hundreds of years in India and the Far East. Asian massage systems are becoming increasingly more popular in western countries. This is in conjunction with the west's growing interest in holistic forms of relaxation and exercise such as yoga and pilates.
I think that's one of the reasons I love Thai Massage so much, I love the history and culture that it stemmed from.
So back to my story. When last in Sydney I wanted to find a Thai Massage Therapy centre that was not one of the more commercial centers that I would find advertised in the daily paper. So I just asked around wherever I happened to be, and after a few days I was told, "you must try this little Thai Massage place not far from here". Ah ha, this could be what I was looking for.
Well, after finding it in the suburb of Burwood, not far west of Sydney CBD, I was greeted by a small lady, clearly a native Thai and I immediately felt very comfortable in this small buy very cosy place. I resisted the urge to go for the more relaxing oil massage or reflexology, and booked an hour long Traditional Thai Massage.
Needless to say, the experience was absolutely delightful and yes I was once again amazed at the strength of this small in stature woman. I will certainly go back on any subsequent visit to get my essential Massage in Sydney.
The one sad element to this story is in a conversation with the lovely Thai woman after the massage, she said that it's frustrating getting phone calls nearly every day from men looking for "special services" or "happy endings". This is clearly a genuine and legitimate business and everything on offer is strictly non sexual.
For a wonderful massage experience that is as close as you will find in Thailand, I could not think of a better place for a real Thai Massage in Sydney.
