Full Spectrum Living With CBD

Adriane Polyniak and Jessica Charles, co-hosts of The Full Spectrum Living with CBD show, introduce you to your endocannabinoid system. Previously unknown to modern medicine until only recently discovered, they explain what it is and how it works. Watch and learn about the chemical reactions which govern human physiology as well as the ways this sensitive balance can be affected by external forces such as lifestyle choices or medicinal treatments.

More information about what was discussed in Full Spectrum Living With CBD Episode 5

Endocannabinoid System

Many people are asking: “How can CBD offer such a wide variety of powerful results for things ranging from anxiety, and neurodegeneration, to even auto-immune disorders?” Specifically, the answer lies not so much in CBD (Cannabidiol) itself but in how CBD is working to augment the Endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The Endocannabinoid System (endo meaning ‘within’) is a biological system focused on mediating physiological balance, fundamentally known as homeostasis. Similarly, some of the first homeostatic functions we often hear from clients are a better night’s sleep, a regulated appetite, and reduced anxiety. Surely, these are a few of the first indicators CBD is kicking in and starting to help boost our natural production of endocannabinoids.

An Endocannabinoid System can be found in all living beings with vertebrae. Scientists have estimated that the ECS, bridging mind and body. Although the ECS is seemingly ancient, modern man has just started to scratch the surface in this arena of health and science. READ MORE ABOUT THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM HERE

CBD Oil Effects

The best advice we can solicit to you is to give our product a true chance for you to see how it may help you.

What do you mean by a true chance? Really try. CBD is not something that will take effect the first serving you consume (although some of our customers have said it has). Take our CBD oil, or CBD extracts as we also like to call it, as suggested on our bottles: 1ml twice daily. Consistency is key when it comes to CBD. So consistent you must be. We recommend starting with a 4oz bottle, taking it consistently until the bottle has been depleted.

Notice how we say try our product. If you want to take the time to do research – you’ll find there’s not another CBD product out on the market like ours today (if you find one, please feel free to comment below with the product name so we can check it out). That’s why we insist on giving our product a try. We have created our CBD oil based on what science and studies have proven to be the most therapeutic.

Time it takes to experience CBD oil effects

Some of our customers have reported the CBD helping them as soon as they take it, others it has taken anywhere from 3-6 weeks before they started noticing a difference. This is because we all have an Endocannabinoid System and depending on the state it is in when you start taking our CBD oil consistently will determine how soon you’ll reap the benefits.

Full Spectrum Living With CBD ep5 Transcript

All right.

Welcome back to your next episode

of Full Spectrum Living with CBD.

I am Meredith, your Cohost.

And I am here with your host, Jessica and Adriane.

And today we’re going to talk

about how CBD can help you.

So, Adriane, you were telling me some really amazing

stories about some of the clients that you’ve worked

with and some of the things that you’ve seen.

What’s one of the most memorable cases

that you can think of where CBD

has really helped change someone’s life?

Yeah, absolutely.

And it still brings a smile to my

face because I can still picture this video.

So we had a gentleman who suffered from COPD, and

he had taken our product for one or two weeks.

And his sister recorded a video

of him running across a field.

And as he’s running, he was just so excited.

You could hear the laughter of everybody that was there

and around there as he’s running, he bites it.

I mean, he just slips, falls,

jumps up and keeps running.

And then into the fence, he

turns around and he’s cracking up.

But everybody was so excited because he was

at a point with his COPD where even

walking upstairs was so difficult for him.

All that inflammation in his chest and just from

taking a CBD product, from taking our product for

a couple of weeks consistently saw a level of

health that he hadn’t seen in years. Wow.

That’s incredible.


That’s awesome. Seeing that video.

Adrian showed me that video when she received it.

And you really just brought tears to your eyesa.

You just saw the joy that he

had from his newly regained abilities.

It really transformed his daily experiences, I think.

And so that’s probably what you’re seeing, right?

You’re not saying that CBD is treating his COPD.

You’re saying it’s helping to increase his quality

of life and reduce that inflammation that he

has and allow him to do something that

he previously wasn’t able to do. Yeah. It’s not a cure.

It’s again, it’s focused on the symptoms

and the things that you’re seeing from

these conditions that you have.

If it’s going to reduce inflammation in a COPD,

it can do the same thing for arthritic joints. Right.

So I personally take it for a wide variety of reasons.

Getting old, like sucks.


But one of the things is early onset

arthritis and bone spurs in my neck.

So depending upon the day, I can have a worse

case of arthritis than I do on other day.

It’s just that inflammation and a joint.

But taking it consistently really helps me.

I find that if I go somewhere and I

forget my CBD for a few days or forget

to take it, then I start feeling that stiffness

coming back in my joints, and it’s pretty painful.

You want to get back to taking it pretty soon, right?

I think one of the best ways that’s been described

to me was in store in Lexington, a physician, a

retired physician whose son was also a physician.

They take our product and they came in the store and

they were both the Sun, I think was 50 plus.

So they both had some aging

related chronic pain and arthritis.

And how they described it was just it

felt that their joints were better lubricated.

And when they got out of bed in the morning, they

just had a much easier time getting up out of bed.

When they took you don’t make good what

people call, quote, unquote, the old people noises.


Best CBD Gummies


Sitting up or getting up.

Like sometimes when you get up out of

a chair, you’re like and you’re thinking, no,

I should be making this noise now, right? Yeah.

So it helps with that. Got it.

So inflammation is a big one, right.

And we hear about that all the

time in so many different places.

So great to know that that’s one area.

So what else are you seeing?

Is there anything in relationship to, like, mood

or sleep where you’re helping people with that?

I think when you just say mood and

ask for any kind of testimony to that.

Hands down, most powerful testimony I’ve ever experienced

with a woman calling us to let us

know that she had been really suffering from

clinical depression and anxiety for years.

It had reached levels that she

did not wish to continue living.

And she had scheduled a

medically induced suicide overseas.

And two weeks after taking our product, she called

to let us know she had canceled it. Yeah. Wow.

That one still brings tears to my eyes.

It really does. Yeah.

That was one of the ones

where we stopped our entire day. Oh, my gosh. Sorry.

We stopped our entire day and really

put the attention that that needed. Right.

We really wanted to celebrate that and

her and what she had experienced.

And sadly, she’s not the only one out there.

But that was probably the most amazing one.

I mean, just life after life changed from

the use of CBD for anxiety and depression.

I’ve said this recently a lot because I’m feeling

this more strongly, but this is my personal opinion.

I feel hands down, anxiety has to be the

single most likely condition to respond to CBD.

I mean, I think they’re all really likely.

But of course, there’s a percentage of people

that don’t respond to anyone treatment for anything

but or not treatment, anyone solution.

But with anxiety, it’s really rare to find

someone where it just doesn’t work for them.

Those people exist.

Genesis Blend CBD Oil for  Stress


But hands down, in my opinion, it just

seems like the best most likely result you’ll

get from CBD is reducing anxiety.

If that’s an issue for you and then depression, but

not even that severe, you can even go back.

I don’t even remember Jess in store where we

had this married couple come in, and I think

she was going through the change of life or

she had other things that were going on.

And so her mood was, as one would

expect, probably a little irritable on some days.

And they came in and they were jokingly

but very seriously saying, you saved our marriage.

He was essentially saying, I

couldn’t handle this anymore.

She was upset.

It was really breaking us up.

And since she started doing the product, they

were like, yeah, this is definitely helping.

And that kind of account has come from a lot of people.

I think that’s not the only couple who said,

you say because of stressors and the way they

were each other from what they were going through.

A Family’s Full Spectrum Journey

But one thing that pops out in my

head about that as well is another story.

The whole family who discovered CBD, they

unfortunately lost, I think, their grandmother.

And they were gathering at her funeral.

One of the cousins in this group of

adults had just recently discovered our vape products.

And they said it totally changed his attitude from

being very like type A upfront and just going,

going easy to anger, easy to stress out.

It just changed him to be really mellow.

And his cousins were asking what he had been doing.

And so they’re there after the wake and passing around the

CBD rate, we had three different groups of a cousin and

their spouse come in our store within a week and buy

products because it was something that I think they found comfort

in, the fact that a cousin that they cared for and

respected had seen benefits with that.

And in their time of extra additional stress to their

family, it was something that worked well for them.


And I think right there is a good opportunity


for you just to insert like a quick little

sound bite that there’s a difference between the products

that have the high THC and those that don’t. Right.

And so when you’re saying CBD here and

you’re saying someone’s vaping, that we’re not talking

about somebody passing around a marijuana joint, right.

At this family event, everybody literally getting

high the way people may think.

Of course, I think that was like part of the

humor that they found in that was that it’s a

cannabis product, but hence, of course, they weren’t getting high.

I think people still connect to it that way.

And so for them, even though they knew they weren’t doing

that, it still felt like this kind of comical way to

just kind of get a laugh and a bit of joy

and an unfortunate and hard mood a little bit well.

And I think that’s really cool, because what you’re saying there

is that this is a way for them to have received

some reduction of anxiety and some relief from the way that

they were feeling, but in a way that’s not altering them

the way that we think of that people would tend to

abuse or have an issue with. Exactly.

I think it’s not seeking to numb

pains through alcohol or getting high, whatever.

But to actually help your body to just process what

you’re going through and maybe just help you to reframe

it in a way that you can function through more.

My personal experience with CBD is that if I’m going

through any strong periods of anxiety and I use CBD,

then it helps me to feel that I’m not overwhelmed

by my anxiety, but I still have those stressors there.

I recognize them.

CBD for Anxiety

But that physical connection that tends to just

completely emotionally overwhelm people, that is let go,

and that makes it possible to move through.

I had a consumer say, and I thought it was

really interesting, and it kind of put a picture to

it was essentially it filed everything in her brain.

So gave her the sense of mental clarity to where

she had all these thoughts swimming around in her head.

But essentially she was like she said, I

could feel and see everything being filed.

And so it was easier for her to concentrate, to

go about her daily business because she knew exactly which

file to go to at that point instead of everything

just kind of swimming around, which I thought it was

kind of an interesting way to look at it.

Okay, so we talked about inflammation.

Sorry, Jessica.

Bluegrass Hemp Oil

And we’ve talked a little bit about mood, but

you also are seeing that people are having are

having luck when it comes to even neurological conditions

that they may be trying to manage.

Can you share a story with us about that?

Well, my story, I guess, my son’s story,

I mean, honestly, we talked about before, of

course, is always going to be my personal

favorite, but even going above and beyond that.

So just thinking of me personally and there’s a

lot of migraine sisters that I have here in

Lexington who all take the products for migraine relief.

I used to get them on a daily basis.

Thankfully, I don’t anymore.

And again, I attribute that to my CBD intake.

But there’s a lot of women here who will

take CBD for their migraine relief, and it’s debilitating.

I used to lose vision.

You get physically ill.

The migraine hangover from the next day is still as

excruciating, and I don’t get any of that anymore.

If I feel a migraine coming on, I’ll take an

extra serving two, sometimes three just depends upon what I’m

feeling and how bad I think it’s going to be.

CBD for Pain

But I keep my vision.

I don’t get nauseated.

I feel the pressure still.

I can still work with pressure.

I can drive with pressure.

So that’s not an issue for me.

And I don’t get the migraine hangover.

And that’s what I’m seeing, essentially, with all the women

that I speak to on a daily basis because there’s

so many women are coming in store looking for migraine

relief, and they’re seeing the same thing.

And it’s just as impressive because now

they can go about their daily lives. Awesome.

Just to, like add my I’ve got so many

favorite stories, but yeah, I think I mentioned this

already on maybe the first episode, but our veteran

friend who had the eight year migraine level eleven,

he ranked it and he saw complete pain relief.

He still got the pressure and discomfort from

that periodically, but he got complete pain relief.

And I think that’s extremely common autism, which

is what brought me to the company.

CBD Oil for Kids

My sister is another I think the category that

would fall under would certainly be neurological condition.

And although we don’t have great understandings of

autism, it seems that CBD’s impact on it

is really dramatic for a lot of people.

So myself, my family and my cousin and her son, to

name two, have been really I mean, just lives changed.

It’s a fact for our autistic children.

And then another story client of ours recorded her son,

who was three or four, I think, and had autism.

She recorded him, I’ll never forget.

She recorded him for weeks, and she would send

us clips, and she did this whole posting on

all the benefits she was seeing and how quickly.

And she really documented it

on video really effectively.

But one thing that stood out to me was her recording

her son just a day or so before starting CBD at

a play place in Lexington public playing area with other kids.

And he’s just facing away from the crowd,

just sitting there, not engaging with anyone.

And that was his standard at the time.

And then a week later, she videoed him

again at the same play place, actually playing

with children for the first time.

That was a really cool thing to see. And it was a week.

It was one week later. Right.

Well, and then there’s also

things like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s. Right.

So we’ve seen a lot of people see relief with

their tremors to where they couldn’t write their name or

sign a check or do any of that.

But after consistently taking it, they’ve been

able to start writing again where you

can actually read their penmanship.

We actually had a gentleman drive.

I believe it was 8 hours he came down.

He’d been taking our product.

He was up I don’t know

where he was from, Michigan, Ohio. He was somewhere.

But he said he drove 8 hours straight down.

He wanted to buy product.

He’d been taking it and ordering it,

but he wanted to see the company.

So he happened to walk at the

door the same time my husband did.

My husband gave a tour of our extraction facility, and

he was telling some really impressive stories about him and

some of his friends in the Parkinson’s group, how they

were seeing such relief with their CBD products.

Yeah, I know someone that had

a similar experience, too, with Parkinson’s.

And CBD has provided a lot of relief for him, too.

So what about autoimmune?

Because that’s another area.

I think there’s kind of these areas

out there that are broad classifications of

conditions or symptoms that people are managing.

And we hear lots about autoimmune from

like Crohn’s to thyroid stuff to Epstein

bar, all sorts of things like that. Yeah.

I think its effect on autoimmune conditions is going to

be something that really saves a lot of lives or

at least improves quality of life in mass.

To understand why it’s effective for CBD, it’s good

to understand that what CBD is doing in the

body is to help regulate your responses to stimulus

and your body’s communication within itself.

For homeostasis, for balancing and generally, autoimmune conditions

would be categorized as an over response or

under response within the body in your immune

system, and many of them being over responses.

Cbd is highly effective at just calming

down the body when it’s over responding.

And for a lot of conditions like fibromyalgia and

rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s, those are conditions where that’s

what the body is doing, it’s attacking itself.

It’s causing a lot of side

effects and pain for that person.

And CB just calms things down and you get

a huge reduction in flare ups in intensity for

most people, the overall frequency of days that are

more intense symptoms versus days that are not it

makes a huge difference for a lot of people.

I think fibro would be one where there’s

not a lot of things that are really

helping people with fibromyalgia right now.

There are not a ton of options.

I have a lot of people in my family

with fibro, and they’re at a loss for options.

And CBD is a really good one for many people now.

Got it. Okay.

And so I think when it comes to Chrome’s and

I hate to be and I’m not going to give

you a family story here because I feel like I

have it or my family has it, but it’s unfortunate.

But we do have a personal story.

So my husband does suffer from Crohn’s,

and he’s great relief with it.

But even more so than that, we had

a customer kind of come in one day.

She was a woman.

She actually came through us through another

business relationship and came in just to

thank us for completely changing.

She was at the point where she couldn’t leave her

house because of the fact that she didn’t know when

she was going to have a clear up.

And when you have crowns, it literally is one of

those things where from 1 minute to the next, you

can just completely ruin your clothes, your shoes, and everything

because you just cannot control your bowels.

And it’s extremely painful with all the ulcers

and inflammation that you have in the gut.

And so she was so thankful she went back to work.

She was working normally on a regular basis.

Again, it’s not a cure.

So she still had to manage her stress.

She still had to watch her diet.

So she wasn’t eating Taco Bell every day.

But nobody should be eating Taco Bell every day.


Nobody should be eating Taco Bell every day.

So you still have to kind of watch those things.

But it still brought her back a quality

of life that she just wasn’t experiencing anymore.

And for that, she was so grateful. Right.

Everybody’s experience and the way that they see

improvements in their life is going to vary.

And it’s not going to be the

end all be all to everybody.

But it can definitely be a step

or several steps in the right direction. Right.

Pointing out her ability, the freedom that allowed her

to be able to leave her house and go

and do things more comfortably than she had been.

That’s a consistent trend for a lot of people.

I mean, people who just their ability

to walk is limited and then improved.

Or we’ve had people come in the store in

a wheelchair or with Canes or something like that.

A gentleman who we still hear from really often,

who he came in barely able to walk, his

wife essentially almost having to just carry him.

And then he came in by himself a few weeks later to

let us know of the updates because he was able to drive

by himself for the first time in a long time. Okay.

So it just gives a lot of people more

freedom to do the things that they want.

We had a woman who hadn’t left her house

from intense social anxiety for years who was able

to finally leave her house for the first time.

And it’s freeing first time.

So you brought up Adrian, your husband’s Crohn’s.

And that’s a significant autoimmune condition. Right.

But it made me think about digestive health.

We keep hearing.

I mean, if I’m just thinking of all of the

things we’re being told now that medical science is getting

better and whether you love it or hate it, there’s

kind of this common theme around gut health and digestive

health and making sure to maintain that.

Does CBD play a role in

those kinds of conditions at all?

We’ve definitely seen some

definite benefits from customers.

And again, it goes back to IBS.

Ibs is actually there’s a study that

shows that IBS is directly linked to

an endocannabinoid deficiency within your body.

So taking a CBD supplement or

a cannabinoid supplement is largely beneficial.

When a person over 80 was taking it, I

think she tried to take it for her or

was trying to take it for her arthritis.

But for several years, every day of

her life, she struggled with diarrhea.

She didn’t know what was causing it.

She couldn’t fix it.

Again, she only reached out to CBD because she

thought, I don’t want to try for my arthritis.

Her first day taking it, she called us

and said, I didn’t have diarrhea today.

And we were like, oh, awesome.

But this is the first time we’ve

heard this, this is fantastic, right?

And she kept calling back and every time that she would

order, she’s like, this has been the best thing ever.

And we’re like how’s it working for your arthritis.

She’s like, it’s working, it’s great.

But I don’t have diarrhea.

So when you think about her quality of life in

that standpoint, that became the most important thing to her.

That’s something that she wasn’t

even expecting to see results.

But again, those digestive issues fixing what’s

kind of wonky my type of term.

Sure, I’ve heard similar stories, but in the opposite way,

but with constipation, where people have told me that it’s

really made a big improvement in that regard.

I think with opioids causing constipation for so

many, that’s extremely beneficial because not only are

you likely to be able to hopefully directly

impact the constipation that they cost, but also

maybe reduce the amount of opioid consumption by

supplementing with cannabis and reduce that as well.

So, yeah, I’ve heard conservation in

diarrhea, but also acid reflux.

I’ve had a few people who’ve taken it for

other things and found big improvements for reflux.

And I think it goes back to balance.

It’s calming digestive irritation and then

helping to maybe reduce the overproduction

of some of your digestive secretions.

Maybe that’s what’s happening.

I mean, it seems likely, but we get a lot of

different feedback from that and then it’s a fact on appetite,

I think should be kind of tied into this because a

lot of people want to know, will it make me Munchy?

No, I think my mom is

the only person who’s claimed that.

She told me it made her hungry, but.

Well, I have had one other person say that as well.

They felt that they were more hungry

but more satisfied by their meals.

So although they were eating a little bit

more frequently, it was smaller meals, and according

to some, that’s more ideal anyway. Right.

On that note, we’ve also had people say

that they’ve lost weight, and although people say

that they’ve gained weight, so those that needed

to lose weight, they found it stopped their

unnecessary snacking, eating whatever was bringing it on.

And on the flip side, those that gained weight

were those that actually physically needed to gain weight.

Maybe they weren’t eating enough, maybe

they had an eating disorder.

I remember one gentleman, I think they were

followed by almost back to back, a gentleman

came in saying that he lost £14.

And then the next day a lady came in saying she

gained ten, but that was actually what her body needed.

And it was kind of amazing.

It was one of those things where in

store we were like, wow, it’s interesting how

it really works differently with every person.

Well, and I think that gets back to what

you’ve shared with us from the beginning, that this

is really about helping people to achieve balance in

their body and that means something different for everyone.

So I love that we’ve been able to touch on these

broad topics and I imagine that we’re going to have a

chance to dive into some of these a little bit more

deeply and really because I think the next questions people have

can you tell me more about how that works and specific

to these areas that I’m concerned about for my health.

So I’m really looking forward to more

episodes of Full Spectrum living with CBD.

But until then, if people wanted to find

out more information, where would be the best

place for them to go to do that? Yeah, absolutely.

Visit our website bluegrassinfoil.com you can read reviews

there, hear other people’s stories from themselves.

You can also find our videos there’s

video testimonials, too, so check those out. Awesome.

I think to add to that, Facebook is a

great way to read some of the reviews there’s.

I think 150 some five star reviews on

there currently and a lot of people find

comfort in reading something that sounds like their

own story where someone has gotten benefit. Awesome.

Well, for this episode of Full Spectrum living with CBD,

I’m your cohost Meredith here with your host Jessica and

Adriane and we will see you all the next time. Bye.
