Cannabis for Constipation

Affecting millions, constipation is an uncomfortable and inconvenient condition that can be a problem for people of all ages. There are many reasons we become constipated, with the usual suspects being a low fiber diet, repeatedly ignoring the urge to go, not drinking enough water or a lack of exercise. Other causes include overuse of painkillers and supplements or diseases such as hypothyroidism, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and Parkinson’s.

Constipation is generally defined as not having a bowel movement in more than three days or two or fewer bowel movements in a week, hard stool, straining and / or incomplete evacuation for 25% or more of the time. Symptoms of constipation include: infrequent or difficult bowel movements, swollen and / or painful abdomen, vomiting and just a general feeling of blah.

As cannabis becomes more accepted, people everywhere are discovering one of the positive side effects of using this remarkable plant on a regular basis. Cannabis has anti-emetic and powerful muscle relaxing properties which not only eases nausea, but has being shown to alleviate the constipation of intestinal reflexes. Constipation was one of the original uses for the herb as a medicine, cited by Shen-Nung five thousand years ago. Smoking cannabis works to produce the fastest result, often within minutes. In China, cannabis seed / hemp seed oils are widely used as laxatives and Ayurvedic practitioners mix raw hemp leaves with milk, sugar and spices to treat constipation.

A daily dose of cannabis along with a healthy diet and exercise can go a long way to preventing constipation. If inhalation is your therapy of choice, we suggest the following strains: Cheese – Berry White – Pink OG – Grapefruit Kush or Equinox.

For non-smokers, using any of our tincture offerings or drinking our raw cannabis juice on a regular basis is a good choice for both treatment and prevention.

Terpene Profile: Humulene

There are hundreds of compounds in a cannabis plant including cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenoids (commonly referred to as terpenes). Many people select their cannabis based strictly on cannabinoid levels, usually THC and more recently CBD. But there is an even more important component to consider: The terpene profile.

Terpenes are a group of essential oils natural occurring in cannabis plants. The terpenes are secondary metabolites biosynthesized in the glandular trichomes of the leaves and flowers and accumulate in the exuded resin. Many terpenes will act synergistically with each other, as well as other compounds in the cannabis plant. It’s these terpenes that are responsible for the characteristic aromas, flavor and effects each strain induces.

Humulene is one such terepene. It is an isomer of b-Caryophyllene, another very therapeutic terpene. This means that these terpenes share the same chemical formula, but differ in structure. Humulene is evident from its strong earthy, woodsy aroma. It is also found naturally in hops, sage and ginseng. Strains rich in Humulene will potentiate the effects of b-caryophyllene on anti-cancer activity. Humulene has very potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Those looking for relief from chronic inflammation or pain should look for this terpene. In addition, those battling fungal infections, cancers or looking to prevent both can benefit from its anti-proliferative properties. See a study from 2007 found here.

The final bonus of Humulene for many, is that it is a natural appetite suppressant. So if you find that cannabis induces your appetite too much, selecting strains rich in Humulene may help curb those cravings.

Selecting strains based on terpenes rather than just cannabinoids brings an entirely new dimension to the cannabis consumer and something we strongly promote. Not only will you find synergistic results for remedying a myriad of conditions such as pain, inflammation, insomnia, depression, anxiety, addiction, epilepsy, cancer, fungal and bacterial infections, you’ll also be able to intelligently select new strains that are best for your body, based on matching up the terpene profile, when your favorite strain is not available

Moxie Meds 100% Organic Tincture

Introduced in late 2015, Moxie Meds tinctures are a revolutionary all natural cannabis medicine grown, produced and thoughtfully designed specifically for women by women, from the organic cannabis farms to the research and development lab. The tinctures are formulated in a Relief 1:1 and Recovery 4:1 -CBD to THC ratio- to aid in relief of severe menstrual cramps, hormonally-related stress, menopausal symptoms and other reproductive concerns.

Robbin sat down with founder Jessica Peters to learn more:

WHAT MAKES MOXIE MEDS DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER TINCTURES AVAILABLE TODAY?
Several things set us apart. First, we start with 100% organic ingredients. To us, organic is a critical component and our growers in the Emerald Triangle and beyond deliver the best organically grown flowers available. Next, we use a full plant alcohol extraction. Then we combine the cannabis oil with fractionated coconut instead of just the MCT, which is typically used, along with added terpenes that enhance the therapeutic properties. The entourage effect of the oils and terpenes make for a more consistent and effective formulation.

BETA-CARYOPHYLLENE (BCP) IS PRESENT IN BOTH FORMULATIONS, WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE?
BCP is a naturally occurring terpene in many strains of cannabis as well as many foods. It has a host of properties including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anxiolytic and anti-depressive; all of these are similar to the suite of properties produced by CBD on its own. In addition, BCP is a CB2 agonist. This means it actually helps bind CBDs into our cannabinoid receptors, which is where the real science of our endocannabinoid system comes into play. The more I learned about BCPs, the more it seemed a natural approach to combine this into the tincture. We spent many months testing the theory and the results revealed that the increased BCPs definitely improved overall efficacy.

HOW ARE MOXIE MEDS BEST USED?
We educate those using our products to approach them take a chronic vs. acute need. Simply put, instead of using Moxie Meds as a quick fix, take it in small doses on a daily basis. That way the key ingredients go to work in your body, activating your natural cannabinoid receptors. Those with higher tolerances to THC, or who suffer debilitating monthly cycles, will benefit from taking a small amount of our Relief 1:1 formulation daily. They can always take more as needed during the menstrual onset. The Recovery 4:1 formulation is ideal for women who have lower tolerance to THC, suffer from anxiety & depression, as well as menopausal symptoms. For most of my life, my period was a BIG problem. This medication resolved my own endometriosis condition and was created for patients like you by patients like you.

WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON?
As the regulations in California take shape, we plan to continue to build our presence in California and reach out to the Eastern states to introduce quality medicine to those who need it most.

Jessica Peters is a cannabis clinician focused on pediatric patients and women’s reproductive concerns, as well other under-addressed patient populations. Formerly the CBD Specialist at Harborside Health Center, she works with components of the cannabis plant currently left untouched by the broader industry and also has a focus on the interactions between cannabis and other phytonutrients.

Ask a consultant for more information about how Moxie Meds tinctures can go to work for you.

Cortney’s Corner: Say Cheese

Cheese is a uniquely relaxing strain that originated around 1988. The story most often told is that one unique female phenotype out of a packet of Sensi Seeds Skunk No. 1 grown somewhere in the U.K. started everything. This one plant produced impressively large buds and had a very distinctive cheesy odor. It was later crossed with Afghani resulting in a powerful mix of two pure indica and sativa options. The resulting hybrid is now well-known for its relaxed, happy effects that gently ease you into a blissful state of mind. Because it is so well balanced with the C cannabinoids and balancing terpenes, Cheese is an ideal option for those with lower tolerances.

My personal experience echoes the description above. I didn’t know much about Cheese on my first sampling but was elated to find my new favorite hybrid. I have found it to be a perfect strain for my yoga practice, walking my pup and easing muscle pain.  Aches and pains are cut in half yet focus on the task at hand is elevated. The crisp euphoria provided is undeniable. It helps me to feel more “in my body” in a wonderful way.

Be Elevated.

Thanksgiving with the Family

Thanksgiving evokes many emotions. And good, bad or indifferent, we understand that sadly, sometimes those emotions aren’t always pleasant. But keep in mind you are not alone and more importantly that your medicinal cannabis can be your best friend. Here are some top picks for products to help you cope when the day gets bumpy.

Durban Poison or SFV OG delivers some nice alertness, clarity and focus, while allowing the stress to melt. Bhang 1:1 hash oil for your vape pen is a great alternative when you need to be discreet. Just step outside or in another room for a puff and this mellow blend of THC and CBD induces a mellow and calming but not sedating relaxation.

Choose Green Monkey CBD Energy for a nice boost to both the mind and body without the psychoactive effect. Nibble in 5mg does throughout the day for maximum and long lasting effectiveness. CBD Relax has all the great effects of CBD Energy, without the caffeinated ingredients. I personally never go anywhere without a pack of Bhang CBD Gum. This non-psychoactive option delivers quick relief from high anxiety and stress, while making you feel “better” all over. If you need a little buzz, Edipure ORGANIX Gummies taken in 5mg micro-doses as needed can be a nice option.

Finally, our featured tinctures can deliver some fast stress reduction without any fuss. CBD Alive 10:1 or Moxie Meds 4:1 are excellent options if you want a non-psychoactive result or pick a 2:1 or 1:1 if you prefer a little euphoria.

Except for the flower, all these products travel well. Sadly, it’s still federally illegal to cross state lines with your medicinal cannabis, so be sure to visit our Traveling with Cannabis post for some tips.

Want to share your knowledge of how cannabis can be used medicinally with your family members? Download our new book The One Minute Cannabist. This is a terrific resource for those new to the world of medicinal cannabis. RX-C members receive 50% off retail of $19.99, contact us for a promo code.

Remember to clean and charge your pipe or vaporizer before you head out for the day and please keep all your medicinal cannabis products locked and out of reach of children.

From our family to yours, be grateful and enjoy the day.

“In the moments we are awake to the wonder of simply being alive, gratitude flows,
no matter our circumstances.”
