Liv Tyler Takes CBD oil Daily

Liv Tyler, 42 reveals that she is a regular user of CBD oil and takes it everyday to treat her anxiety, as she confesses she suffers from severe nerves that are easily triggered by her ‘stepping out of the comfort zone’. 

 

  • Liv Tyler revealed she uses CBD oil tincture every day to help calm her nerves and keep the anxiety levels in check. 
  • She said the cause for her anxiety is her job 
  • Liv shared her personal favourite brand for CBD oil, Lord Jones, which describes itself as a creator of one of the finest CBD products
  • The CBD oil that Liv takes contains 1,000mg of CBD, costs $100 for a 30ml bottle. It can also be used as a taste enhancer in foods or used as topical. 
  • The actress also shared earlier this month that she is undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy, a treatment that aims at improving mental health

 

The actress opened up about her battle with anxiety and admitted that taking CBD oil regularly helps in treating her nerves. Tyler, who lives primarily lives in London with her three children and her partner shared her personally adopted remedy while creating a beauty routine video for Vogue.com

 

She talked about how she takes a CBD oil tincture every morning to manage her stress and anxiety levels in check. Tyler also mentioned that the CBD doesn’t get her high or anything so it is not a product that would get you stoned in anyway. 

 

She admitted to the camera about her anxiety before delving in deep and confessing that most of it comes from her job and what she is required to do. She said that her job is a bit scary and it becomes difficult to not be nervous sometimes. It is just like public speaking or any other activity that falls out of your comfort zone, said Liv. 

 

However, Liv has managed to deal with her anxiety levels and nervousness on a daily basis- she uses a dose of CBD oil from a brand known as the Lord Jones. The company describes itself as one of the finest creators of the world’s most supreme quality CBD products. 

 

Liv held the bottle of the CBD oil close to the lens and said ‘I know everyone is talking about CBD oil and I have one here that’s from this company called Lord Jones, it’s really good’. She then used a pipette-style dispenser to put the CBD oil under her tongue carefully and said that it doesn’t make you feel stoned or anything. 

 

CBD has gained immense popularity over the last few years, especially after the governments all around the world began tweaking their policies to incorporate CBD as a legal substance. Many people have turned to CBD based products and found it helpful in treating their ailments at a larger scale as compared to traditional prescription based drugs. 

 

People use CBD for numerous reasons, right from treating stress and anxiety to improve their sleep patterns, CBD is believed to be a one-stop solution for many common diseases. It has even been linked to treating epilepsy in children. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows only one CBD based drug named Epidiolex, which is used for treating two rare forms of epilepsy in children. The agency has invited public comments that will help form the basis for a regulatory framework for CBD products in the U.S.  

 

CBD is an anti-inflammatory and non-psychoactive component which does not produce any mind altering chemicals that can get you stoned. Contrarily, another substance that is derived from cannabis plants known as THC or tetrahydro cannabidiol is a psychoactive compound that is responsible for triggering hallucinations and causing the “high” that people feel while smoking pot or weed. 

 

Liv pointed out the same, saying that CBD might come from a cannabis genus plant but that doesn’t mean it causes any high or have similar effects as that of THC. Currently, the most widely popular means of taking CBD includes in an oil form, the one that Liv is taking. A bottle of CBD oil of 1,000mg Royal Oil from Lord Jones costs at about $100 per 30ml bottle. 

 

According to Lord Jones, apart from taking the CBD oil orally as a tincture, it can also be used as a topical or taste enhancer in foods. The product consists of just 2 ingredients as claimed by the company – ‘broad spectrum CBD’ and grape seed oil – and it is not flavoured, with the brand noting that it retains the natural aroma of the cannabis plant. 

 

The website description of the brand reads that they have created their Royal Oil to engage people who are looking for an ultimate supplement, flavourless, colourless and pure.

California welcomes Cannabis Restaurants and Cafes with ‘flower’ and ‘budtender’ service

Cannabis restaurants are coming to California

Just like any good chef planning to open a brand new restaurant, Andrea Drummer wants to get her work done just right. But her plantain-mango salsa with lamb chops will not be matched with beer or wine. 

Instead, a “budtender”- widely popular in the industry as ganjiers, as in ganja sommeliers- will assist guests at the soon-to-open Lowell Farms cannabis cafe to pair their meal with the perfect amount of farm-to-table cannabidiol. 

Drummer said that a kush is slightly bit more pungent, so it tastes better with a stew or a meal like meat or beef product. A lightly lemon profile goes well with a fish. One of her personal favourites, Blue Dream, tastes really good with both sweet and savory. Drummer tells that she has done done it with bread puddings, and with ice cream, but she’s also tried it with octopus. 

When the vintage-like, rustic, hemp-filled cafe with 220-seat capacity will open, it will be the first of its kind in the United States: a cozy place for tourists and locals to relish high-quality meals and smoke a joint in public. Other restaurants are soon to follow. 

But if they are planning to incorporate weed on the menu, restaurateurs in the city will have to work their way through a complicated workflow of regulations. The progressive city had approved an ordinance in 2017 and allowed businesses for this purpose. 

Jackie Subeck said that they are building the boat as they’re on the water, with cannabis. Subeck plans to launch a cannabis cafe, spa, clinic and serves as the chairwoman of the cannabis legislative subcommittee for the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. 

States that have legalized cannabis for recreation will watch the town pull it off. In Mayallowing cannabis lounges, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed a bill. Cannabis restaurants may eventually become as normal as wine bars if legalization remains apace.

Sean Black, the co-founder of Lowell Herb Co., the cannabis organization launching the cafe said that whatever West Hollywood will be doing now will be followed by other blue states, three years later. 

According to the proposition 64, cannabis is legalized in California, but consuming cannabis in public is still banned. 

When a research session on the subject was held by the West Hollywood City Council in 2017, it was determined that access to locations for smoking was an issue of social equity.

John Leonard, the city’s community and legislative affairs manager said that many people in the city are renters, and they may not be allowed to smoke cannabis in their apartments. These people who stay on rent are forced to smoke in their cars or public places, and run a higher risk for getting arrested for that. 

But this wasn’t the only reason why cannabis was legalized for smoking in public by the council. 

Leonard said that people enjoy the nightlife in West Hollywood, so the cannabis legalization was sort of a natural evolution, that people can easily enjoy while staying in the West Hollywood in a hotel, or they could go out to cafes or bars to smoke a joint, and now they can go for cannabis consumption as well.  

Cannabinoid, a hemp-derived compound was legalized from the federal government in December 2018 under the Farm Bill Act. The substance was removed from the list of Controlled Substances and made legal for production, processing, distribution and consumption. 

CBD is widely popular for its medical benefits. From treating stress, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness to reducing acute pains, aches, inflammation, swelling, irritation, CBD has been used by numerous people for various health ailments. 

There are public places for marijuana use elsewhere in California and Colorado, but there are many lounges connected to dispensaries or vape clubs that resemble a dingy cellar. These places are quite different from what West Hollywood had in mind when it launched applications for 16 on-site consumption licenses in May 2018. 

The process drew a lot of attention and more than 300 applicants, who were scored on multiple factors such as social equity and innovation. The top eight participants in each of the five categories were permitted to proceed. 

Drummer’s application was amongst the highest scorers in the category for cannabis consumption in lounge (vaping, smoking and edible), featured a “bright and airy oasis” with tableside “flower” service- hand-rolled cannabis buds into joints. Drummer also called for a full-fledged menu infused with cannabis, which Drummer has been creating for several years as  a private chef for her clients including comedian Chelsea Handler.

HOLY SMOKE Nate Diaz puffs cannabis oil with fans before UFC 241 fight

The fans favourite Nate Diaz makes his octagon return on Saturday competing with Anthony Pettis, his old rival in his home of California. Diaz hasn’t fought since August 2016 when he lost to Conor McGregor in a majority decision at the UFC 202. The Stockton native reminded his fans of his unique personality by smoking a cannabidiol on the stage. 

After his rematch defeat to The Notorious, Diaz infamously smoked CBD oil-which was banned by the United States Anti-Doping Agency at the time. However, the USADA has made cannabidiol legal in and out of the competition. 

Diaz took advantage of the updated rules by producing his own Game Up Nutrition CBD line. The UFC also signed an agreement with Aurora Cannabis to assist fighters in taking supplements after a fight to treat aches and pains.

Diaz told ESPN that he was the pioneer for the UFC fighters to have the once prohibited drug legal.

Diaz said if they saw how he landed a great CBD deal for the UFC. He further stated that CBD is now present in every sport and athletic competition- from football to basketball to wrestling rings, CBD is legal and UFC is paid out!

He added that everyone has jumped on the CBD bandwagon because of him. He apparently started the CBD movement, says Diaz. 

His brother Nick was given a five-year ban after he failed the post-fight drug test for marijuana metabolites after his loss to Anderson Silva in 2013. 

In a pre-fight drug screening, Silva tested positive for oxazepam, drostanolone, temazepam and androstane, and the fight was proclaimed a no contest. Nick spent about four months appealing his failed marijuana test and gradually got it reduced to 18 months with a £82,000 fine.

However, the MMA veteran has not battled since the middleweight battle at UFC 183 after all the time spent appealing the decision. Because Nick failed to pay his NSAC penalties, in his high-profile battles with McGregor he was not qualified to corner his brother.

What is CBD? 

CBD or cannabidiol is a hemp derived compound which is an anti-inflammatory chemical with healing capabilities. There are many medical benefits of using CBD, as claimed by several patients who have used it to treat their anxiety, inflammation, stress, depression and other ailments. 

The federal government in the United States legalized hemp-derived cannabinoids under the Farm Bill in december 2018, thereby removing CBD from the list of controlled substances. According to the federal regulations, CBD products are legal for production, processing, sales and consumption, however the maximum limit for THC is 0.3% per unit. If any product contains traces of THC amounting to more than 0.3%, the product will be considered illegal. 

Many states have legalized hemp derived CBD, but there is still some hesitation among consumers about the safety and effects of CBD. There is not much evidence that backs up the medicinal claims of CBD. 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a public meeting in May to discuss the regulatory framework for CBD and its other products. The meeting was attended by several renowned scientists, researchers, law enforcement officials, consumers, business leaders and many others. 

The agency is yet to declare any official statement about CBD’s regulatory framework, however it has warned companies not to market or advertise their CBD products as a treatment to prescription drugs or with medicinal benefits. 

It recently issued a warning letter to Curaleaf for advertising their CBD products claiming medical benefits, which is strictly prohibited by the agency. A spokesperson from the FDA said that the agency is highly concerned about the health of consumers and want to ensure that CBD is a safe product to consume in any form. Till the time the agency clears off CBD as a safe substance, companies have to take additional precautions to ensure they are not violating any regulations laid out by the FDA.

John Isner to Endorse New CBD Sports Drink

CBD oil has exploded in the past eight months, especially after the federal government legalized hemp-derived cannabidiol. The farm bill in December 2018 removed cannabinoid from the list of controlled substances, thereby making it a legal compound to be used in different products. 

Companies have been using CBD in a wide variety of products including gummies, coffee, tea, mocktails, chocolates, pizza, burgers, drinks, popcorn and what not. From wellness and beauty to health and lifestyle, CBD has created a buzz all over the market place. 

Consumers have started relying on CBD heavily for treating their ailments, starting from the basics like cold, flu, acute pain to severe diseases like cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s. Although there is not much science to back up the medical claims that CBD comes with, many people have reported that CBD has helped them improve their health by a significant margin. They feel healthier and better now. 

The marijuana extract has been associated with helping people alleviate mental health problems like anxiety, depression, stress and sleeplessness. Since CBD is devoid of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, it doesn’t intoxicate the user with hallucinations or the ‘high’ they get while smoking pot or weed. 

A new drink company is planning to roll out CBD products to bring some of the medicinal benefits to the sports community. Defy is the first mainstream CBD beverage that will be targeted at athletes. Launched in collaboration with Denver Broncos great Terrell Davis, each bottle of the Defy contains 20mg of high performance spectrum hemp extract, and other ingredients like coconut water, B vitamins and electrolytes. 

The label recommends consumption of the CBD oil before, during or after the exercise. The formula is intended to enhance athletic performance by increasing focus and effort during physical activities, while speeding up the recovery process from any injury caused earlier. 

Despite that research on CBD benefits is still in its nascent stages, John Isner is all out to promote CBD products for their health benefits. The top-ranked American and world’s no. 15 male, Isner is the first pro tennis player to endorse Defy. The collaboration was announced in Atlanta at the BB&T Open. 

Isner explained that he plays a sport where even a slight point off can make a huge impact and draw a line between winning and losing a match and Defy seems to be the perfect product which is specifically aimed to help athletes perform well at all points.  He further added that it’s been great knowing Defy as a company and that he looks forward to working with them to assist people in achieving high performance through CBD. 

Defy is currently available in 3 different flavours: Orange Mango, Mixed Berry and Lemonade. A six-pack costs nearly $48 which means the product is decently priced but not cheap. 

CBD is being widely infused in topicals, ointments, creams, oils, and in many other forms. After its legalization, celebrities have started using CBD heavily for their acute pains, injuries and stress. From the beauty mogul Kim Kardashian West who threw a CBD-themed baby shower to welcome her fourth child with husband Kanye West, Jennifer Aniston, the popular actress from the world famous TV series FRIENDS who uses CBD for stress, anxiety and acute pains, everyone seems to be relying on CBD for their daily needs. 

Despite the popularity, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have not allowed CBD in food and dietary supplements. According to the agency there is no solid scientific proof which supports the medicinal benefits claimed by CBD and allowing consumers to use such a product is straight away dangerous. 

The agency has been working on regulating CBD products that have already flooded the consumer space. Public health and safety is the first priority of FDA, says a spokesperson.
