Inflammation and the Aging Effects

Inflammation and What Cannabidiol can DO

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil (FSHO) with VitaminCBD™ was grown by a retired Orthopaedic Surgeon in the organic fields of Maine and processed into a tincture with the main purpose of affecting the bone stimulation problem to combat OSTEOPOROSIS. This doctor’s research in bone stimulation goes back to 1975 when as a post-doctoral Orthopaedic Fellow at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Fast forward, transforming from Orthopaedic Surgeon to farmer under the 2014 Farm Bill, he named and trademarked the first Vitamin of the Endocannabinoid System, VitaminCBD ™ on December 20, 2018, the day the farm bill was passed making Hemp a legal crop for the first time in 49 years.

VitaminCBD™ (Cannabidiol) as I have defined it, is emerging as a powerful supplement with a significant effect on our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to fight inflammation. The ECS has been shown to have a strong effect on reducing inflammation in immune, cognitive and motor systems of the body. VitaminCBD™ is one of over 100 cannabinoids, natural compounds found in Cannabis sativa L known as hemp when there is less than .3% by weight of THC, which makes it a non-scheduled compound in accordance with the DEA.

The ECS is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, bones, and immune cells. Endocannabinoid receptors known as CB1 and CB2 are found in those same locations: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, bones, and immune cells. For each organ tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis or balance within that bodily system.

This cannabinoid has shown promising results in independent research and studies as a treatment for a variety of conditions including antiemetic, anticonvulsant, antipsychotropic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-tumoral, anti-anxiolytic/antidepressant, and more. With the growing prevalence of autoimmune diseases in the world, there is a huge need for therapies that improve and restore balance to immune function, without suppression. Cannabinoids found within FSHO have shown promising results for the improvement of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.

The word inflammation is the word that keeps coming up, over and over again. In the November edition of the AARP magazine the cover story is a five-page article on research linked to inflammation as a common link to nearly every critical disease of aging lifestyle, called “low grade inflammation”. The new research, which drew from the VITAL study, aimed to determine the biomarker levels of several inflammation indicators in people either taking or not taking vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplements, or fish oil for the purpose of reducing inflammation. There were no vital markers seen after one year thereby reducing inflammation.

So, inflammation is a key prognostic marker of multiple life-threatening conditions—especially those associated with aging and obesity. These chronic inflammatory traits include cardiovascular disease, heart failure, osteoporosis, some neurodegenerative conditions (including Alzheimer's disease), diabetes, and some cancers. FSHO and VitaminCBD™ fight inflammation.

FSHO with VitaminCBD™ is not a cure all and I make no medical claims, however it is the ongoing research which is pointing to the needed balancing of our ECS against inflammation which is critical for cellular health.

Many times, when we turn on the television or the radio now days, we are told to go read the report, or read the testimony, or read the article. No, I am not being political, I am being a doctor. Go read the article that is in this month’s November AARP magazine. It talks about inflammation and how it affects our aging process and our disease process. It talks about inflammation in the body in an easy way to understand.

As a doctor, I know about Inflammation and its different types. I have been trained to detect and treat acute inflammation. Sometimes it is even necessary for doctors to write prescriptions and treat people with antibiotics, rest, elevation, ice and/or heat or many other modalities for these acute episodes of inflammation. Here is the new spin—chronic inflammation is a key prognostic marker of several life- threatening and disabling conditions, especially those associated with aging and obesity and you do not know that you have this ongoing chronic inflammation.

Yes, obesity is considered a chronic inflammatory disease that will and can lead to the same endgame of acute inflammation that winds up being cellular tissue damage and death. Chronic inflammation can also impact cardiovascular disease, heart failure, osteoporosis, some neurodegenerative conditions (including Alzheimer's disease), diabetes, and some cancers. Wow!!!!!!!!

We have a bodily system which Americans are just starting to learn about and pay attention to called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This is a balancing and regulatory system within our bodies. We need to have external cannabinoids added to our diet when our bodies do not or cannot make enough. People have been dependent on getting these phytocannabinoids from their foods in the past, but our nutrient soil has been degraded dirt and no longer supplies these much-needed cannabinoids.

The renaissance of the plant Cannabis sativa L can supply many of these missing cannabinoids that help fight this chronic inflammation in our bodies. As the public re-enters this market, beware of where you source your Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. Many vendors are fractionating this full spectrum oil and taking out the components like THC and stripping out the entourage effect and presenting the public with an isolate which is not the answer for the ECS and the fight against chronic inflammation. As a doctor of 40 plus years, I went out and grew our product from seeds to sales. I know what I know and suggest you read more and learn more at You can also order HCI’s Full Spectrum Organic Hemp Oil with VitaminCBD™ created and formulated by me, the doctor.
