Did You Know?
Canola oil used to be called RAPESEED oil but the name was changed for marketing reasons

(NaturalNews) Olive oil comes from olive, grapeseed oil comes from grape seeds, peanut oil comes from peanuts and canola oil comes from... rapeseed. The plant known as "rape," from a Latin word for "turnip," is a domesticated crop in the widely cultivated Brassicaceae  family (also known as the mustard family, the cabbage family, or the cruciferous vegetables). Although the word has disturbing connotations today, during World War II people thought nothing of referring to "rapeseed," and the oil from those seeds was used for industrial purposes.

The real problem with the name "rapeseed oil" is that the oil was so toxic that  the FDA banned it for human consumption in 1956 . So when Canadian growers bred a new variety of rapeseed in the 1970s with a lower content of the toxic erucic acid , they decided they needed a new name for it.

Brain Cancer Patient Beats the Odds With a Therapy I Thought Was a Hoax  By Dr. Frank Shallenberger

Research has shown that our bodies actually make their own cannabinols. The cannabinols that we make are called endocannabinols. And in order for the body to use the endocannabinols it makes, it has its own cannabinol receptors. These receptors are special molecules that occur on the surface of cells that allow the endocannabinols to work. One absolutely amazing fact is that there are more cannabinol receptors in the human body than any other receptor system. That shows you just how important these molecules are for our health. 

Multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, neuropathic pain, cancer, atherosclerosis, stroke, diabetes, myocardial infarction, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis are just some of the diseases in which alterations in the endocannabinol system play a role. And that's where the magic of CBD works. CBD (and also THC) interacts with our cannabinol receptors.  In that sense, CBD works much more like a nutrient  than a drug. And what it does when it interacts with the  cannabinol receptors is nothing short of wonderful!

The receptors that CBD interacts with are found in large amounts in the peripheral nervous system, the internal organs, the skin, the muscles, the ligaments, and in the immune system. And when CBD acts on these cells, it decreases inflammation, decreases pain, decreases tension and anxiety, increases energy levels, and stimulates the immune system.
