There has been a global change that has disrupted industries and economies around the world. It’s called the Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19, or SARS-CoV-2 . A respiratory virus that is wreaking havoc on a certain at risk group of us humans, typically those with pre-existing conditions and older in age.
CBD manufacturers know only a few key components as fact, with the research we are perpetually conducting through our partnered research institutions. In fact there is so much more we don’t know than what we do know, but it is an ever chasing stream of research and knowledge that we are uncovering about the benefits of CBD.
One thing we can contribute to cannabidiol within research studies, is that CBD has been known to boost your body’s T cells and in turn, decrease inflammation*. Manipulation of endocannabinoids and/or use of exogenous cannabinoids in vivo can constitute a potent treatment modality against inflammatory disorders*. In layman’s terms, it’s great at fighting general inflammation. This focus on the potential use of cannabinoids as a new class of anti-inflammatory agents with a number of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, is the main focus of our current work. *source
Why is this important? Because interestingly, the acute phase of SARS in humans is associated with a severe reduction in the number of T cells in the blood. Surprisingly, only a limited number of studies have explored the role of the T cell-mediated adaptive immune response in respiratory coronavirus pathogens. This means that the reduction of T cells lowers a patient’s immune system to fight the infection and other like symptoms associated with the disease**. In theory, CBD could eventually play a role in defending against Coronavirus. This is, however, hypothetical at the moment until more research is uncovered. **source
In no way are we stating that you should go out and stock up on all of the CBD you can. I will be the first to tell you that it is NOT a cure, it is NOT a treatment, but it MAY play a part in strengthening your immune system while it's in a vulnerable state, when coupled with the right group of suppliments. The key roles of vitamin and supplement intake can have a drastic effect on a persons susceptibility to be affected by infections like this one. We will always recommend, adding a well rounded vitamin and supplement regimen to your daily intake.
We’ve done some research and here’s what we are seeing that will help boost a person’s immune system and allow CBD to aid in the decrease of inflammation. The use of EpiCor, a consumable yeast-based immunogen has, shown drastic results in the decrease of inflammation in the human body. The selection of anti-inflammatory and lymphocyte activation assays were based on initial evidence for immunomodulating effects of EpiCor from an unusually low incidence of influenza among employees in a factory manufacturing EpiCor, along with a high oxygen radical absorbance capacity value. In the present study, EpiCor significantly reduced the production of reactive oxygen species by neutrophils (p<0.005)***. ***source
We are currently developing a product that blends CBD and EpiCor, to create a nano gelcap to aide in this global fight for relief. People are investing in themselves, as they find ways to boost immunity against the new strain of virus. While this product is not yet available, we are planning on releasing it as quickly as possible. Immunity boosters are going to play a big part in the future of medicine and preventative measures against new viruses such as Covid-19.
Another rising concern for individuals is the increased stress and anxiety associated with the shift in economic health. People are more often turning to CBD because they are under increased pressures with work, and the change of daily life. CBD has been known to decrease anxiety, and we are receiving more requests on what products we could recommend. While we can’t guarantee that CBD will have an effect on most people, we are suggesting a test of our 1000mg PCR Pharms Tincture. The fear of the unknown is inhibiting peoples ability to live stress free everyday and if we can offer any help, we will.
Here are some tips we have picked up throughout this crazy changing time-
Tip 1-Stay Healthy. People are home and anxious. By working in time to stay active, you can drastically boost your endorphins and limit the stresses of life. Set as daily goal to walk one mile, do 50 push ups, challenge our family members to do crunches, or even curl that wine glass 10 times before each sip. Purchase immunity boosters, vitamins, and supplement to have a back stock in place. Your health is the most important. Don’t forget about you.
Tip 2-Create a Routine. Many people become complacent with having to stay at home. By forcing yourself to get up in the morning, make your bed, prepare breakfast, you are ultimately creating positive habits which you can take with you when quarantine is over. Take this time to go in the yard and get some sun, catch up on those chores you’ve been putting off, or even pick up a new hobby.
Tip 3-Be Careful. There are many fears about our current situation. Are we doing too much? Are we doing too little? Learn about the current knowings of the CDC by staying commented to their website. When you’re traveling to the grocery store, be sure to take advice from professions. We are including a link by a doctor on how to take precautions at the grocery store.

Tip 4-Be Educated. Listen to the professionals and understand what the virus is, and how you can protect yourself and your loved ones. Remember, it’s only risky for a small percent of individuals. Be cautious of them. They are of course, who we are ultimately doing this for. Check out this video on what Coronavirus is, and how it's broken down so you can understand it the best way possible.

Tip 5-Take Time for Yourself. Don’t focus on todays situation. Don’t always have the TV on in the background. You need time to reset, detox, and find yourself. Overall, take care of yourself. Tune out the media and put your mental health first. Look out for you and your loved ones. We’re all doing our part, but sometimes we forget to think about ourselves in the process.
Leave us comments below on how you cope with todays concerns. Thanks for reading and remember to breathe. It’ll be over soon.
Hemp and CBD have been on the rise in privation in the united states, but they are becoming more imperative to the way farmers do business in 2019. The hemp farming act decriminalized CBD in 2018, giving farmers an opportunity to start growing freely under a limited contrast of regulation. In December 2018, the federal farm bill removed a ban that classified hemp as a controlled substance equivalent to schedule 1 drugs. The shift coincided with the sudden popularity of CBD, which some claim can soothe ailments from depression to inflammation. Many don’t know that its now on the verge of saving farmers livelihoods throughout the United States. When the trade wars occurred in 2018, many farmers were left stranded with nowhere to sell their crops.
President Donald Trump, as part of an effort to strengthen US economies, placed certain tariffs on goods coming into the United States from China. This led to a Chinese retaliation , or “trade war” which imposed tariffs on US goods exported into China. The major exports of the US into China, are mainly crops and raw materials. This ultimately took a huge hit on farmers who focus primarily on crops such as soybean and corn.
Hemp is a diverse product and can be used for many applications, however, a projected 87% of hemp crops will be used for CBD this coming year. People ultimately don’t understand what hemp really is. Hemp was previously grown in American fields until the early 1930s, when it was generally included in federal legislation that restricted marijuana. Even then, it was not eradicated: Wild hemp is often referred to as “ditch weed” and was something that was widely known to be a dry cellulosic nuisance, instead of a controlled substance.
Farmers who have been working with hemp such as Casey Mahoney, a mid 20’s man with a green thumb working on Pueblo Colorado hemp farm. He has been seeing the climb of CBD in the last few years in the surrounding area. “Many farms who produce products like corn, soybean, and alfalfa, have been switching to hemp as a means of supplementing their bottom line.”Mr. Mahoney states. Mr. Mahoney goes on to say, “We are being looked at under a closer microscope” as he references the department of agriculture who is focusing more on CBD than ever before. “As more crops come online, the DOA has an obligation to make sure these crops are produced in line with the federal regulation that has been put into place.” Hemp must contain no more than .3% THC when its in a natural state. This is tested by pulverizing the plant and testing chemical concentrations within the fibers.
If these tests come back above the .3% THC limits, the crop must be incinerated. Many farmers that get approvals from the DOA fall victim to this practice more often than they would like to admit. This year, just under 1,000 farmers in Illinois applied to grow fewer than 23,000 acres of hemp, according to John Sullivan, the director of the Illinois Department of Agriculture. These farmers are hopefully the hemp and CBD sales will help turn them a profit to meet their bottom line. Farmers state that every time they put corm or soybeans in the ground, it becomes a risk. Losing only 1 or 2 customers puts them in harms way while international economies continue to suffer. Farmers must adapt to growing trends or demands, or they risk losing their families farms and livelihoods.
Hemp has a number of great uses. One of which is taking processed fibers from the hemp stalks and sending them to the Florida everglades for use in construction materials. Hemp stalk is a very strong cellulosic fiber that can be used for roadways. Its laid down under rubberized asphalt and us showing tremendous results in resilience. The hemp fibers help strengthen the roads allowing them to move and shift as water levels fluctuate in the area. They are decreasing the man hours needed for repairs by up to 35%.
Customers who buy CBD should focus on the sources of their products when making decisions. US grown product will always be superior to foreign CBD, due to our highly regulated industry standards. Currently it is illegal to import CBD from out of the country, although many CBD oil companies choose to purchase from these sources. The reason is price. With a lack of regulations, these crops are able to produce outside go GMP standards.
Understanding what the direction for hemp oil and broad spectrum hemp products will be, is completely unknown. As for now, farmers are taking a risk and rolling the dice on hemp crops. Until the US economy stabilizes with Chinese markets, we will see fluctuations in the demand for other crops, giving way for hemp to prosper in US soil.
About 3% of CBD companies actually have a relationship with their hemp farm, and most of the 97% have no idea what country their products are actually coming from. Ask your CBD supplier for a department of agriculture certification so you know that your product is grown by one of our very own hard woking US farmers who is abiding by current US laws. At PCR Hemp Wholesale, we post all of our certifications on our testings page. Feel free to verify test results and federal requirements by following the links below.
Nano CBD is a term being loosely thrown around the supplement community. “Nano” is a math term. But, it doesn’t help a lot that it designates 10-9 or 0.0000000001. “Nano” has been attached to anything to suggest it is really small.
Nanotechnology refers to the manipulation of the things at the atomic, molecular, and supramolecular level. Nano medicine deals with creating medical devices, imaging processes, drug delivery processes, and pharmaceutical bio-availability. There is a world of scientific interest in leveraging these approaches to find and develop therapies for disease and physical conditions. It’s no surprise that nano has reached the world of CBD therapy and care. Still, you may wonder what’s in it for you.
What is Nano-emulsified CBD?
Now that we know what Nano means, we still don't know what an emulsifier is. Well as simply as we can describe it, an emulsifier is a substance that is known to dilate the pores, making them larger in size to more effectively absorb into the body. We have found a proprietary fern that is blended with our CBD that gives us this effect. We believe that the isolated CBD, also known as CBD Isolate, lacks the spectrum of benefits that other broad spectrum products have.
In the world of CBD science, nano suggests concentration, intensification, or enhanced. Nano Hemp CBD, for example, is amped up with an additional processing step. A step running the compound through a nano processor to effectively break down the molecule without damaging its effects. With that additional process, it moves faster through the body to deliver a more efficient effect.
Nano CBD is a new type of process for hemp and CBD extraction. The extraction process breaks down the molecule to smaller than normal. We also add an additional emulsifier to help expand the pores, making our products more effective that traditional CBD. Our processes help retain terpenes while extracting all THC. In the manufacture of nano CBD products, the process extracts oil through a CO2 process to eliminate impurities and toxins with no leave-behind chemicals. We then filter out the THC though a patented process called liquid chromatography, which slowly pills out the THC without heat. All of our processes are done under 205 degrees to ensure that no additional chemical reactions happen from the induction of heat. The extraction process is as pure and clean as it comes. The hemp oil can then be introduced into other carrier oils, topicals, and numerous other CBD products. The traditional micro-emulsion process divides the water and oil using a large amount of the fluid which also dilutes the quality. Nano emulsion uses much less fluid leaving a more potent and broad spectrum CBD product.
Benefits of Nano-emulsified CBD
Nano-enhanced CBD oil and its related products, work faster, making its bioavailability attractive to patients suffering from any one or combination of scores of medical and psychological conditions.It offers the same anti-anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmatic, and anti-nausea properties, but it delivers it faster. Unlike full-spectrum CBD, we have removed all traces of THC out of our products. We certify all of our products as 100% THC free, and guarantee potency through lab testing and 3rd party analyses.
Here are a few of the "terms" we are able to claim based on our production and processing styles-
100% THC Free
Made in the USD
Certified Hemp from the Department of Agriculture
It’s no doubt that CBD has an array of medical benefits, but what is it really that has the crowd going? Tinctures, pills, teas, gummies, pillowcases…. yes, I actually said pillow cases. There are really CBD pillowcases that are supposed to relax you and give you the best night sleep that you’ve ever had. Let’s be honest, most of these products are gimmicks to get people onto the bandwagon. But what is the big craze with CBD? It had to have caught on somewhere where it actually worked right? Right.
CBD is classified by the world health organization as a Vitamin. A clean, natural, supplement. Now what do we do with supplements? We ingest them to balance our bodies and nourish us. With much of todays foods lacking the necessary nutrients to successfully sustain healthy bodies and minds, we really need the additional help from vitamins more than ever.
Now what are some of the downfalls of CBD? Does it make you anxious? No. Does it get you high? No. Does it hurt your body? Absolutely not. In fact it does much of the opposite. It lubricates your brain, joints, relieves inflammation, and decreases pain. Now who wouldn’t love that everyday? So what’s the big deal with CBD you ask and why is it in almost every form? Because the corporate entities haven’t yet gotten their hands on it. One reason is because it’s simply too expensive to produce.
It’s no secret that CBD is going down in price. Just look at the array of products flooded on Amazon these days. You can get a 2 pack of “Hemp Oil” for 15 dollars. We also know in the industry that people also absolutely falsify information. Hemp Oil can literally be Hemp Seed Oil with 0.0% CBD in the entire bottle. Something you can get a gallon of for 26 dollars anywhere online. You also get what you pay for when it comes to CBD. There are numerous different types of CBD in the market. Check our next Blog for the the REAL cost of CBD.
Now what is the future of CBD? Well once prices come down, the big markets are going to take over. Companies like General Mills, and P&G will eventually start their production houses. Flash forward 15 years… What if CBD was in all of the food you ate? All day long you’re snacking on chips while fighting inflammation and pain. Well the future isn’t too far away. With the increased production and corporate awareness, it’s just a matter of time before your Wheaties are infused with this magical substance.
As for the next topic, we will get into who will make the cut and who won't. For now, CBD is a marketing game, but as time progresses, only the quality companies will hold fast and lead into the true miracles that are really to come. We will teach you the difference between the different types of CBD and how they effect your body.
CBD is used to correct a number of ailments, but lately the use of CBD oil has become more and more predominant due to the rise of opioid based product abuse. The most appropriate delivery system for CBD-rich hemp is one that provides an optimal dose for a desired duration, with as few unwanted side effects as possible. CBD-rich hemp oils varietals for smoking or vaping are available in some medical marijuana dispensaries, but many CBD patients prefer non-inhalable products made with hemp oil concentrates. As of recently, fully approved by federal law, measurable doses of potent CBD-rich hemp remedies are available in many non-smokable forms and can be utilized in various ways. The time of onset and duration of effect vary depending on the method of administration. CBD-rich hemp oil products can be taken sublingually, orally (as edibles, lozenges, beverages, tinctures, and gel caps), or applied topically. Concentrated hemp oil extracts can also be heated and inhaled with a vape pen. Inhalation is good for treating acute symptoms that require immediate attention; the effects can be felt within a minute or two and typically last for a couple of hours. The effects of orally administered CBD-rich hemp oil can last for four hours or more, but the onset of effects is much slower (30-90 minutes) than inhalation. Are there alternatives to the slow processing topicals and oral delivery methods.
Using a brand like PCR Pharms, a medical grade CBD producer, may drastically increase your bio-absorption by adding natural emulsifiers in with your daily use. An emulsifier is a substance that stabilizes an emulsion, in particular a food additive used to stabilize processed foods. In the case of hemp oil, the emulsifier helps to open up pores in your skin and will rapidly draw a substance into your bloodstream. Emulsifiers can be found in a number of places, but lucky for you, they mostly come from nature. PCR Pharms uses a fern from South America to dilate pours and increase effectiveness by up to 90%.
With the use of many different delivery systems, topicals are becoming more widely used throughout the CBD industry. Medically, salves and balms are used to treat skin inflammation and are becoming a better treatment regimen for some neurological disorders. Choose the best method for your need and allow some time to adjust to the product before you abandon its usage.
The Government and Pharmacuetical companies do not want you to know this information. The incredible benefits scare Big Pharma because their profits will suffer and the truth of CBD Oil embarrases the Government because they've been hiding the true scientific results.

In 2013, reports that a chemical called cannabidiol (CBD) had reduced the seizures of a 6-year-old girl from near-death levels to almost zero.
According to several media outlets, Charlotte Figi was suffering 300 grand mal seizures per week and had lost the ability to walk, talk, and eat. Existing epilepsy medication had failed her. But CBD—a component of cannabis that does not trigger the plant's characteristic high—reduced her episodes to a few per month, and, as her parents told reporters, ushered in a full cognitive recovery.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and the National Institute of Health discovered that CBD can provide treatment for acne. Researchers used cannabis-derived cannabidiol on the human sebaceous glands and came to the conclusion that CBD acts as a highly effective sebostatic and anti-inflammatory agent by inhibiting lipid synthesis.
PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
CBD is known to produce anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory effects when ingested by slowing everything down and calming the user. Those with PTSD are often overcome with anxiety and stress, so patients frequently find relief by using cannabidiol. The antipsychotic benefits provide a stable mental environment for those that need it most.
In 2012, a group of German researchers published a study in the journal Translational Psychiatry. The potent antipsychotic Amisulpride and CBD were compared between 42 schizophrenia patients. The two treatments were deemed effective, but the short side-effect profile of CBD out shined the pharmaceutical option.
Managing Alcohol-Induced Damage
Alcohol, especially when taken in large quantities, exposes organs like the liver and kidneys to likely extensive damage. CBD oil has properties suggested to protect these organs from damage induced by excess alcohol consumption. It does this by preventing the accumulation of fats and lipids in the liver that lead to serious problems like cirrhosis.
Some scientists say CBD could be an effective treatment for bowel diseases like Crohn's Disease. THC and CBD interact with the system that controls gut function in the body, something that Crohn's patients suffer issues with. The component of cannabis’ anti-inflammatory ability brings a lot of relief to those suffering from this condition.
Scientists at the Cajal Institute used animal models and cell cultures to find that CBD reversed inflammatory responses and served as durable protection from the effects of multiple sclerosis. Mice with 10 days of CBD treatment had superior motor skills and showed progression in their condition. Using this information, researchers concluded that CBD has the potential ability to reduce various aspects of MS.
One of the few side effects of CBD is tiredness, but for many, it’s what they seek out in the natural herb. Since pharmaceuticals for aiding sleep pose risk for addiction and leave you feeling groggy the next day, it's best to go the safe route with non-habit forming CBD. When searching for strains to combat insomnia, try staying with Indica and CBD-heavy strains to knock you out when you need it most.
And the list just keeps going ......
Pet Relief CBD Oil can be used for both dogs and cats for a variety of ailments including:
