If you’ve ever suffered from chronic pain (such as arthritis), acute pain (an injury) or muscle soreness after a particularly tough workout, then you know you’ll do just about anything to find relief: ice, heat, compression, acupuncture, meditation, anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers and even prescription pain pills. While some of these treatment options are safe, others — namely, the medications — can cause a host of side effects.

In fact, more than 100 Americans die each day from opioid-related drug overdoses, such as OxyContin and Vicodin. Regular use of these medications can increase your tolerance and dependence, possibly leading to addiction. They also can negatively affect your respiratory and digestive systems, menstruation, weight and mental health. It’s no wonder that in 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency and announced a plan to combat this opioid epidemic.

So how can you find pain relief without popping pills? Cannabis.

What Is Cannabidiol (CBD)?

Now you may be thinking, “Whoa, I haven’t smoked pot since that one concert in college” or “I have a job and a family and can’t risk dabbling with drugs.” No worries. We’re actually referencing a completely different part of the cannabis plant than the one used for partying.

CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring molecule in hemp plants that provides a multitude of health benefits. On the other hand, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the molecule that produces the psychoactive high recreational cannabis users enjoy. That means, you can rely on topical CBD products (oils, creams, sprays and gels) for their medicinal properties without experiencing any intoxicating or mind-altering effects. As a result, CBDs are legal in all 50 states, with no restrictions on usage. Additionally, since they do not enter your bloodstream, they won’t show up on drug tests — a crucial component for elite athletes and most anyone with an employer.

It’s also important to note that not all hemp products contain high levels of CBD — in fact, most hemp oil and hempseeds found in grocery stores don’t contain any.

Natural Pain Relief Alternative

Though clinical research is still in its infancy, numerous studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that CBD can help alleviate an array of ailments.

“Topical CBD products are excellent for the management of aches and pains that can prevent you from doing chores and living the lifestyle you desire,” says Kersten Gaba, clinical research nurse and cofounder of Basic Jane, a company that uses plant-based ingredients to create natural remedies. “We have found excellent results with the elderly and people who use their bodies a lot, such as hikers, climbers and golfers.”

Specifically, CBD has been found to help with the following:

Pain. In one study, data indicates that topical CBD application has long-lasting therapeutic effects for arthritis pain and inflammation relief — and without any evidence of side effects.

Inflammation. Cannabinoids suppress inflammatory response and also may be beneficial in certain types of cancers that are triggered by chronic inflammation. Someday, they could serve as a new class of anti-inflammatory agents for various inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

Anxiety. Another study found evidence that strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Sleep. Preliminary research suggests that CBDs may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia. Plus, they may have short-term benefits for sleep apnea, REM sleep behavior disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness. Finally, CBDs may reduce nightmares associated with PTSD and improve sleep among patients suffering from chronic pain.

“Our customers like the idea of being able to target pain relief topically, without taking a pill,” says Jessica Tonani, a biotechnology professional and co-founder of Basic Jane. “For those living with chronic joint pain, a quick application to your knuckles, knees or wrists can allow you to enjoy the activities you love. We suggest gym-goers keep a topical CBD product on hand for use as a localized desensitization before or after a workout.”

While topical CBDs have not been found to cause any discernable side effects, expectant mothers should discuss usage with their physician.

CBD Oxygen Canister

In its “CANNABIDIOL (CBD) Pre-Review Report” compiled for last November’s 39th meeting of the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated, “In clinical trials, CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment for at least some forms of epilepsy,” and noted a wide variety of other conditions for which CBD has shown promise in treating or alleviating. The report lends credibility to the growing body of anecdotal evidence that CBD could have therapeutic benefits for people suffering from everything from Alzheimer’s to depression to chronic pain.

Oxygen And Cannabis

CBD is part of everyday life for those who already smoke or consume marijuana. But for people who cannot or do not want to use another widely known cannabis compound–tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid responsible for the high associated with marijuana, CBD has been just out of reach–until now.

Thanks to a new partnership between oxygen-and-cannabis aromatherapy pioneer CannaO2 and Seattle’s encapsulated CBD leader Haystack Caps, CBD infused oxygen is available for the first time in a small, palm-sized canister that fits in a gym bag, a purse, or even a pocket. Similar to an asthma inhaler, the new CBD-infused oxygen canister is tasteless, smokeless, and odorless. But it carries a therapeutic-grade dose of CBD derived from 100% organic cannabis, along with pure Aviators Breathing Grade Oxygen (ABO) for a clean, sustained energy boost with each inhalation.

“CBD-infused oxygen will revolutionize the way CBD is delivered,” explained CannaO2 CEO Tyler Slater. “When a person is having an epileptic seizure, for instance, it’s difficult to get the CBD tincture underneath their tongue. With CannaO2, you can literally place the mask up to their face, pull the trigger, and let them breathe normally.”

CBD Infused Oxygen

In states where medical or recreational marijuana is legal, some people may enjoy the effects of both CBD and THC but prefer not to smoke. For them, the new CannaO2 and Haystack Caps partnership will produce CBD infused oxygen canisters with or without THC from any strain of cannabis flower included via CannaO2’s proprietary technology.

The new CannaO2 CBD infused oxygen canisters were inspired, as most market disruptors are, by an unmet need. “We have had so many requests from people who have never tried cannabis and don’t want to smoke it, yet they need the benefits of CBD,” Slater stated. “Well, now we have something for them.”

The actual design of the CannaO2 CBD oxygen canisters will be revealed in the June 2018 issue of Marijuana Venture Magazine. Shortly thereafter, consumers will be able to purchase CBD-infused oxygen canisters for the first time ever.

About CannaO2

Founded in 2017, CannaO2 is a Dallas-based company that provides 95% Aviators Breathing Grade Oxygen (ABO) in a can infused with a proprietary blend of 100% organic cannabis-derived terpenes and normal ambient air. The unique smokeless marijuana alternative is legal in all 50 states and delivers up to 130 two-second inhalations from each canister. Ideal for servicing venues and non-medical situations where people can become oxygen deficient due to high altitude, overexertion or polluted environments, CannaO2 does not require a prescription. Along with its partnership with Haystack Caps to deliver CBD infused oxygen canisters, the company is currently developing a smaller can capable of 50 inhalations.

Canna02 looks to revolutionize how experienced and refined weed users get high. Thanks to its proprietary blend of 95% pure-grade oxygen and a cannabis-derived terpenes infusion, Canna02 delivers a pure and powerful marijuana experience that can legally be enjoyed anywhere. There’s no classier way to simulate smoking without the smoke.

CannaO2 and Haystack Caps CBD infused oxygen canisters with or without THC from any strain of cannabis flower is forever changing the way CBD is delivered.
