The SIMPLE answer is… IT WORKS!

Thanks to CBD proponents, this amazing plant compound is coming out of the shadows and into the mainstream for pro athletes to benefit from. Our very own NEWYOU CBD Experts have worked extensively with NFL Retired Players’ Association and others. This is in an effort to help them better understand the role CBD can play not only in helping athletes regain their health, but also perform at their optimal level.

Now, current and former pro athletes in multiple sports have even founded organizations such as Athletes for Care that promote the use of CBD. Also they support further research in this area.

By Greg Montoya

The support behind CBD by pro athletes is massive and growing. Especially with continuing research into its benefits for pain management, inflammation and sleep; since the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officially removed CBD from its list of banned substances in 2018.

The Human Body is Literally Hardwired for CBD

It’s no wonder, when you see the research coming out about the benefits of CBD and how it interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Just recently, German researchers have shown the brain’s ECS may also play a role in producing what’s called a “runner’s high.” This is not just from endorphins as was previously thought; it solidifies the fact that the human body’s ECS is literally hardwired for CBD.

In a recent article in Men’s Health about the growing use of CBD by athletes, former NFL player Ryan VandenBussche recounted his life before CBD,

“We were given opiates by our team doctors. Looking back after years gone by, I’m surprised I’m still alive.” 

Today, Ryan and others are on a CBD crusade. So, every athlete, professional or not, will have access to and understand the many benefits of CBD.

CBD Truly is a Blessing From God

Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how blessed we are to live in a time where athletes can fully utilize CBD and receive all the benefits it offers… I only wish I had CBD products like DROPS or CB2 when I was in my martial arts, wrestling and boxing heyday. Thank God we now have access to this powerful healing plant derived molecule!

CBD a Game Changer: 2018 FIFA World Cup First to Allow CBD Use for Competing Athletes

newyou pro athletes soccer cbd

More and More Pro Athletes’ Organizations are Becoming Receptive to CBD

Times are changing as the 2018 FIFA World Cup becomes the first sporting event that allowed competing athletes to use CBD-based products. This comes in the wake of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officially removing Cannabidiol, commonly known and sold as CBD, from its banned substances list. 

CBD Will Not Get You High

CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant and is chemically different from THC… which means WADA can distinguish between the two substances when tested; WADA still bans THC.

Athletes, professional and weekend warriors alike, are heralding this change. Many suffer from ongoing joint inflammation and pain. Athletes say having more access to CBD-based products gives them more options when it comes to addressing these debilitating issues naturally instead of relying on pharmaceutical pain medications which often accompany many unwanted side effects. With the opioid problems looming, the news at the 2018 FIFA World Cup put a welcoming spotlight on CBD and its positive health benefits.

Ongoing Research on CBD is Very Promising 

When it comes to assisting the body in managing and even reducing chronic pain, as well as supporting the ECS, the scientific community has noted that the ECS is the most important system within the body to maintain health and well-being. 

A properly functioning ECS is essential to our health and well-being. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. These include the:

  • Brain
  • Blood
  • Organs (e.g., pancreas and liver)
  • Connective tissue
  • Bones
  • Adipose tissues
  • Nervous system, and
  • Immune system

CBD & Your Immune System – Nothing To Sneeze At!

Research Shows CBD May be a Power Player in Defending the Immune System… Good News when it comes to using NEWYOU Products and Staying Healthy during the Flu, Cold and RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection) Season!

by Greg Montoya

Whether it’s a flu, common cold or something more virulent like COVID-19, science is showing that it’s not always the virus that proves fatal. But, rather the body’s own immune response that produces the marked symptoms of infection. 

Recently, NEWYOU’s Pualani Armstrong, a CBD Research and Development industry professional, answered some questions during an interview about the valuable role CBD plays when it comes to our Endocannabinoid and immune systems. 

Wintertime Immune System Concerns!

The headlines in the news are often scary, very real and everyone should take precautions suggested by federal, state and local health authorities.

NEWYOU: We know every winter, people are always concerned about the next type of virus or flu, but it really begs the question: 

  • Can CBD help optimize the immune system? 
  • What does that look like as far as our health is concerned? 
  • Before we dive into that can you take a few minutes to explain to us in layman’s terms how viruses work? 

ARMSTRONG: Absolutely! Well, this is a very exciting time. There has been a lot of research coming out regarding the Endocannabinoid System, the immune system, cannabinoids and specifically, plant derived phytocannabinoids like CBD and their therapeutic potential against pathogens like viruses. 

How Viruses Work & Your Immune System

It’s really helpful to understand how viruses work in the first place before we discuss our immune response and further how the Endocannabinoid system plays a role regarding your immune function. 

Viruses are truly fascinating tiny life forms and they are one of, if not, the most abundant life forms on the planet. In fact, I recently learned that there are many more viruses than there are bacteria. 

They are pretty much everywhere and are unavoidable. Viruses by themselves don’t have their own cellular bodies, so they’re kind of like little genetic syringes that contain their own DNA and they’re looking for a host cell that they can inject their DNA into in order to replicate, proliferate, and ultimately survive.

For some more virulent viruses like the Coronavirus this hostile takeover can actually happen very quickly inside the human body, and many times the rate of replication in the body can outpace the immune system’s response. 

NEWYOU: We’ve heard that in many cases it’s not the virus itself that causes the most damage, but it’s actually our immune system’s response to the virus that results in the underlying health problems?

ARMSTRONG:  That’s correct. In many instances it’s our own body’s immune response that causes the potentially fatal secondary effects and the common symptoms of infection. Modern science is still trying to understand the many complexities of the immune system and immune response. We are starting to see that in addition to how quickly the virus can replicate versus how fast your body can respond there is another really important factor to consider when it comes to how you will be affected by a viral infection. 

Importance of the Immune Response

It’s often the strength of the immune response that determines how well we will fare against a virus. So, of course, someone who already has a compromised immune system is going to be more susceptible to viral infection and secondary complications than someone whose immune system is functioning at optimal levels. 

But whether or not you become really sick, deathly ill or simply get a tickle in your throat is very much determined by how fast your immune system can respond and to what extent. 

Sometimes, however, the pathogen can actually trigger your own body’s immune response to be so destructive that in addition to going after unhealthy viral cells it actually starts to destroy healthy cells and healthy tissues which can lead to a lot of problems.

NEWYOU: What you’re saying here is that this could result in an autoimmune response by the body?

ARMSTRONG:  Yes, autoimmunity is when your own body starts attacking itself. When this happens the body really struggles to move into a state of healing. An overemphasized immune response is where things can really start to fall apart, especially when you come up against a really hostile virus like Coronavirus. 

Of course, you want the full force of your immune system engaged; your T-cells, white blood cells and macrophages. But sometimes your immune system can actually overreact and incorrectly differentiate between the good cells and the bad cells. 


It sounds like it’s important to manage the immune response, so it’s strong enough, but not too strong, when the body is confronted with a virus. Now, it’s important for people reading this to know that we now know that the immune system is regulated by the Endocannabinoid System. Some people may not be familiar with the Endocannabinoid System.

NEWYOU: Can you tell us a little bit about that and why it is vitally important as it relates to fighting off viruses like the Coronavirus and others?

ARMSTRONG: As far as discoveries go the Endocannabinoid System is a fairly new discovery. So, we are just now starting to see more and more research coming out that indicates how critical this particular regulatory system is. 

Understanding The Endocannabinoid System

We’ve heard of the endocrine system and the immune system, etc., but the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is what connects them all together and helps them talk so to speak. It regulates and balances many of the body’s core processes including the immune response, communication between cells, appetite, metabolism, memory,  pain, and more. 

The ECS is based on cell signaling and communication. Throughout the body, we have specific receptor sites called CB1 and CB2 that respond directly to cannabinoids. These two receptor sites are found on many different types of cells throughout the body including immune cells. 

What is Homeostasis?

When they meet, the cannabinoids and their receptors form what’s like a lock and key. Ultimately, the result is a cascade of processes that allows the body to maintain a state of homeostasis…a big fancy word that means balance. 

Basically, the Endocannabinoid System exists to help regulate, oversee and make sure that all the other bodily processes and functions are happening as they’re supposed to. It ensures that your body is balanced and healthy.

Now, back to the immune response. You don’t want it to be too strong, or too weak…

This is where the Endocannabinoid System seems to come into play according to research. Our immune response has everything to do with how dangerous a virus will be to any person.  Viruses are eager to live and will do anything they can to survive. In some cases, will even turn off and override our own natural immune response, so that our immune system doesn’t respond the way it’s supposed to.

Don’t Make Your Body a Home for Viruses 

In something like Coronavirus the virus actually makes its home in the lungs and respiratory tract, resulting in a ton of inflammation. Secondary complications in the form of respiratory illnesses as the body attempts to fight the infection. New research is showing that the Endocannabinoid System working together with the immune system is one of the many ways that our body can protect itself from viruses and other pathogens. 

The body naturally produces endocannabinoids that bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptor sites located on immune cells. Fortunately for us, we are able to help boost the body’s natural store of cannabinoids by supplementing with phytocannabinoids or plant cannabinoids like CBD that can act just like your natural endocannabinoids do and engage the receptor sites on our immune cells. 

NEWYOU: Please remind us again exactly how CBD works with the Endocannabinoid System to influence the immune system?

ARMSTRONG: Sure, earlier I mentioned that the Endocannabinoid System is all about maintaining balance. It’s really good at overseeing that communication between all the other systems in the body to know if something is out of balance, and if so it begins to modulate and bring everything back towards optimal balance and function. 

Fighting a Viral Infection – Influence on the Immune System

When we’re fighting a viral infection, we really do want a very strong immune response so our body can respond quickly with its fighter cells. But, simultaneously you want to avoid an autoimmune response that is too strong that would result in killing healthy cells and quite possibly actually killing us in the process. The Endocannabinoid System makes sure this doesn’t happen. 

 New research is showing that CBD in particular is powerful in supporting immune function and specifically, can directly influence the immune system and promote antiviral activity by modulating immune responses helping to determine what is too strong of a response and what is too weak. 

Controlling the Strength of the Immune Response is Critical!

Modulating is a fancy science word, but it really means the ability to influence or control the strength of the immune response. Like other adaptogens, CBD can work in either direction to help restore balance. It’s the reason why CBD and the Endocannabinoid System are so powerful when they are combined. 

Inflammation is one of the clear signs of an immune response and we’re seeing with Coronavirus in particular that the inflammation of the respiratory passages is especially dangerous and possibly fatal. CBD can help the Endocannabinoid and immune systems work together to deliver the proper immune response thus helping to control dangerous inflammation levels. This is really a key piece of information especially when it comes to fighting dangerous pathogens. 

Inflammation is Directly Related to Disease and the Immune Response

You mentioned inflammation. Most people are familiar with inflammation and have heard that inflammation is a precursor to many disease states.

NEWYOU: Does CBD’s ability to target inflammation help it determine what is a sufficient amount for the immune system? 

ARMSTRONG: Many of us live with high levels of subchronic inflammation simply due to our diet, environment or lifestyle and that can be really taxing on our immune systems. To help people understand inflammation a little better I like to use a visual… 

I grew up in the Virgin Islands where I was out in the sun most of the time. I’m very fair skinned and prone to getting a sunburn. A sunburn is a visible example of an inflammatory immune response. When you get too much sun your body is triggered to have an immune response to deal with the damaged cells and that immune response is the inflammation you see and feel in the form of heat, pain, and redness. Sometimes, there’s even the peeling of the skin, which means that those cells were specifically targeted and killed by programmed cell death because they were not healthy enough to live properly. This is your body’s way of saying that there was significant cellular damage.

CBD, Inflammation & Your Immune System

What’s so special about CBD  and inflammation is that because it is able to modulate the immune system and immune response it is also an incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It’s also really special because unlike other chemicals and drugs, CBD has the ability to work in two directions, to upregulate or downregulate other processes as necessary making it super responsive to the needs of the body. 

This means that you’re not going to fully see CBD working in a linear fashion like you can with traditional pain-relieving anti-inflammatory agents. Because it lessens the effects of something or increases something, it can turn one process off or it can turn something on. It’s always sort of fluctuating in between to find that state of balance. 

What the research is showing is that CBD is basically coordinating all these other cellular processes. Meaning that it’s adaptive

NEWYOU: So what you’re saying is everybody’s experience with CBD may differ because it’s so adaptive.

ARMSTRONG: Anecdotally, that’s what we are seeing. Depending on your age, or the disease or condition you’re trying to  help with CBD, responses can vary from person to person. I think the most important thing to remember is that one of CBD’s greatest features is its ability to restore balance. 

Balance, or homeostasis, is unique to every single person and their own body’s needs and that determines the effect CBD will have. We found some amazing snippets of research that actually showed how differently the effects of CBD can be depending on what imbalance was. 

CBD Effect on Cells 

For example, when they introduced CBD to a healthy cell with low levels of inflammation the CBD didn’t really seem to do much to the inflammation levels, which is what you would expect. The cell was healthy and there wasn’t much inflammation. Then they introduced CBD to a healthy cell that had high levels of inflammation and the result was a reduction in the inflammation and the CBD had a very strong immune suppressive effect. 

Finally, they took a cancer cell and introduced it to CBD and the results were actually increased inflammation, which seems counterintuitive but since inflammation is an immune response it means that the CBD was signaling to the immune system to respond in a more pronounced way. Which is pretty amazing because it shows how adaptogenic CBD can actually be. 

But in general, when it comes to an immune response, CBD is actually very calming which is why it has such a profound anti-inflammatory effect. It is really going to kind of calm down and tone down the immune system.

NEWYOU: Besides helping to manage the immune response is there any other way CBD works with the immune system?

ARMSTRONG: The immune System is very complex, evolving over many years to handle new bugs, pathogens and foreign Invaders. While there’s still a lot of research that needs to be done concerning the Endocannabinoid System, immune function and CBD, we are seeing a lot of promise concerning the CBD’s effects on the immune system specifically when it comes to pathogens like viruses. 

Unhealthy Infected Cells

What’s really interesting is that CBD appears to be able to selectively trigger cell death for unhealthy infected cells while leaving healthy cells alone. That is really profound because a lot of chemicals and drugs out there are kind of working on everything, so it’s just completely scorched earth. They get rid of everything. 

It also appears that CBD can increase certain immune signaling molecules or decrease the secretion of these immune signaling molecules. If you need a more profound immune response, it can actually regulate how the cells are sending these sorts of chemical signals to each other. 

Overally, the key to optimal immune function depends on maintaining a healthy Endocannabinoid system and the best thing we can do to guard ourselves against things like Coronavirus or common flus, colds or nasty bugs is to support our bodies by supplementing with vital phytocannabinoids like CBD. 

One thing we can say for certain is that CBD definitely has a profound impact on the immune system and the research looks very promising. I only expect that we’re going to be hearing more about its positive benefits with each passing year. 

BEST Holiday Practices and Tips to Stay Healthy to Keep Your Immune System Strong!

As it relates to staying healthy, my advice is: 

  • Drink lots of water

It’s Time to Give Some Healthy Props to Hops

Hops is actually a healthy botanical “cousin” to Cannabis. 

Yet despite no other plant being as closely related to Cannabis as Hops, Cannabis has been the illegal black sheep of the family, while Hops has been the darling of the two as a key ingredient in beer brewing.

by Greg Montoya

The benefits of Hops are numerous. Here’s a few examples:

1) Helps Protect The Brain – Hops is rich in flavonoids, Xanthohumol (XN) being one of the most abundant. Increasing XN can dramatically help with neuroinflammation and can help slow down aging of the brain. It can also help with neuroinflammation due to its binding to GABA-A receptors and stabilization of calcium levels in the brain.

2) Helps Reduce Anxiety – Separately of GABA activity, XN can calm anxiety by inhibiting glutamic acid decarboxylase. For example, a 4 week clinical study using Hops supplementation showed a reduction in depression, anxiety and stress symptoms.

3) Helps Reduce Insomnia – Hops can help with insomnia by enhancing circadian rhythms. By stimulating melatonin receptors, Hops can help reduce body temperature, helping improve sleep.

4) Helps Reduce Obesity – XN can inhibit adipogenesis (increase fat cell death) and as a result can be helpful in preventing obesity. For example, in animal models being fed a high-fat diet with hop extract, XN showed a reduction in weight gain. XN has also shown to curb overeating, as well as reducing the accumulation of white fat.

5) Improves Mitochondrial Function – By reducing oxidative stress on the mitochondria, XN can stimulate mitochondrial function and metabolism.

6) Helps Control Diabetes – XN enhances the metabolism of glucose and uptake of glucose into cells. For example, in obese mice XN supplementation in high doses could reduce weight and increase glucose metabolism. By acting on the farnesoid X receptor (FXR), XN can even help prevent diabetes.

7) Enhances The Vascular System – Higher HDL cholesterol levels are associated with lower risks of cardiovascular disease, such as atherosclerosis. By inhibiting cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) and enhancing apolipoprotein E (ApoE) activity, XN may be able to increase HDL levels. For example, in Western-type diet-fed ApoE-deficient mice, XN was able to reduce plaque formation.

8) Protects The Gut – Hops can help to protects the gut. Tetrahydro iso-Alpha Acids (THIAA, which is found in Hops) can even help prevent leaky gut by increasing zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1) and occludin, two key tight junctions proteins.

9) Supports The Liver – Hops may help protect the liver from developing Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. Hops can protect the liver from oxidative stress and oxygen-deprived damage. XN inhibits the synthesis of triglycerides in the liver. It also produces some of its benefits on cholesterol synthesis in the liver by its ability to bind to the liver X receptor. This can also reduce liver scarring in animal models of Type 1 diabetes. 

10) Improves Kidney Function – Flavonols in Hops may help with gout, as they can reduce uric acid levels. 

11) Enhances The Skin – By reducing inflammation, Hops can improve:

  • Acne
  • Allergic contact dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Melanoma
  • Skin Aging
  • Skin Infections
  • Skin Structure (collagens, elastin, and fibrillins)
  • Sun Protection 
  • Wound Healing

12) Hyaluronic acid – (HA, found in Hops) promotes collagen synthesis, repairs/hydrates tissues, and helps prevents wrinkle formation.

13) Has Antimicrobial Properties – Hops has anti-microbial activity which can help prevent food poisoning.

14) Acts On The Immune System – Hops has immunosuppressive effects and may help with arthritis.

15) Protects Bones – Hops may help prevent bone disease including osteoporosis.

16) Effects Sex Organs and Hormones – XN can reduce growth of tissue in endometriosis. Hops can inhibit aromatase, an enzyme that converts androstenedione and estrone to estrogen. XN inhibits bone resorption (osteoclastogenesis) and collagen loss.

17) Helps With Thyroid Health – XN can stimulate the uptake of iodide in thyroid cells. XN can also reduce T4 levels.

NEWYOU Hops Beer CBD

Today, these two wonder plants are proving they have a lot more to offer than their noteworthy contributions to a buzz. And, although Hops like Cannabis contains CBD (Cannabinoid), a well-known non-psychoactive compound that naturally occurs in that plant and may offer some relief from:

  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Seizures
  • Sleep problems
  • And many other health issues

Additionally, there are other terpenes and phytonutrients in Hops that are equally as therapeutic in supporting the Endocannabinoid System.

Here are just a few of the ADDITIONAL Cannabis ingredients used in NEWYOU CBD products…

XANTHOHUMOL – An Antioxidant Powerhouse!

When it comes to antioxidant properties, it appears grapes don’t hold a candle to Hops thanks to a powerful prenylated flavonoid called xanthohumol. This amazing phytonutrient is said to be 200 times stronger than the highly regarded antioxidant resveratrol found in red wine. 

Impressive for sure, but not many people realize Hops’ polyphenol activity is also higher than that of green tea according to some reports. Beyond being a powerful antioxidant, recent research on xanthohumol at Oregon State University shows it can “lower cholesterol, blood sugar and help prevent weight gain.” 

Also, noteworthy research suggests xanthohumol has strong cancer fighting and HIV inhibiting properties, as well as neuroprotective benefits.

HUMULENE – Does a Body Good

When people think of Cannabis, they think of getting the “munchies”. It’s true that certain phytocannabinoids (THC and CBG) act as appetite stimulants. However, there are terpenes in Hops like Humulene that can actually suppress appetite. 

Numerous studies have shown that Humulene significantly reduces hunger, which could make it appealing for those looking to lose a few pounds. Humulene also contains strong anti-inflammatory properties and may be beneficial in reducing systemic inflammation as noted in a 2007 study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology. This particular research found Humulene to be as effective as a popular steroidal anti-inflammatory called dexamethasone. 

Used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years, Humulene has a proven record of health benefits for a wide variety of issues.

8-PRENYLNARINGENIN (8-PN) – A Woman’s Best Friend

Another prenylated flavonoid found in Hops, 8-PN may offer a natural solution for women who are going through symptoms associated with menopause like hot flashes, low libido, moodiness and insomnia resulting from a decline in estrogen levels. 

It’s one of the most potent phytoestrogens found to date, 50 times more potent than genistein in soy, and research indicates it helps women with relief from many menopausal symptoms. 

Research on this incredible flavonoid shows it also has strong anti-diabetic potential and may play an important role in protecting against osteoporosis and certain cancers.

BETA-CARYOPHYLLENE – A Cannabinoid by Another Name

Beta-Caryophyllene, derived from Hops, is getting a lot of attention lately because of research showing its powerful benefits as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial compound and much, much more. 

Simply google the benefits of Beta-Caryophyllene and you’ll see dozens of potential benefits that range from longevity to cardiovascular health. It’s a terpene, but researchers suggest it should be classified as a Cannabinoid because its properties are extremely similar. 

Beta-Caryophyllene has been shown to specifically bind to the CB2 receptor, one of the main Cannabinoid receptors in the body’s Endocannabinoid System.

CAUTION – There Are “BREWSKI” Limitations!

While it would be nice to “drink in” all the benefits of Hops in a 6-pack of your favorite beer, unfortunately many of these powerful compounds are lost during the brewing process… 

NEWYOU CB2 Plus Hops

However, the GOOD NEWS is you can find 50 mgs of pure Humulus (Hops) in NEWYOU’s CB2 Plus Canna-active Tincture, along with 500 mgs of full-spectrum Phytocannabinoids…

THAT’s Twice the Benefits in Just One Bottle!

We love our pets, and we love giving them lots of TLC, “Tender Loving Care”.

So, let’s explore why Pet Owners are now enthusiastically looking at another important component to add to their pets’ health and well-being – CBD.

by Greg Montoya

Why CBD for Pets? It Has Everything to do With the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Some people look like their pets, it’s funny and sometimes true. However, you share more in common with your pet than you might think. Like you, animals have an Endocannabinoid System. Therefore, they can benefit from Cannabinoids in many of the same ways that people do. 

The Endocannabinoid System, often referred to with another three letter acronym, ECS, is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors (CB1 Nervous System and CB2 Immune System) are found throughout the body. These include the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. 

With receptors in so many places in the body, research shows they play a significant role in regulating many bodily functions in you and your pet like: 

  • Sleep
  • Weight loss
  • Mood
  • Appetite
  • Immunity
  • Pain
  • Cognition 
  • And more! 

So, when your pet is feeling anxious or has some aging aches and pains just like you, CBD may help them like it helps you.

What the Science Says

Animals continue to suffer from many of the same health issues that we do like anxiety, pain, skin sensitivity, seizures, obesity and more. While most pet owners treat their pets like family, many of them have no idea that their pets can benefit from CBD. 

Emerging research shows it can! According to one on-going study being done at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Phytocannabinoids like CBD can reduce anxiety, pain, and seizure disorders, as well as reduce aggression. 

Another clinical study completed at Cornell and submitted to the 2017 American College of Veterinary Surgeons Summit, indicated that as little as 2 mgs of CBD oil twice daily increased the comfort and activity in dogs with osteoarthritis.

So, when it comes to CBD and your pets, the science is welcomed news.

Potential Benefits of CBD for Pets:

  • Anxiety – CBD is thought to ease nervousness and provide calmness.
  • Pain – Studies have shown that CBD helps reduce joint inflammation which relieves osteoarthritis aches and pains in pets.
  • Skin Sensitivity – CBD may help with noses, paw pads and toe sores which can get irritated, dry, and sensitive.
  • Seizures – CBD may help prevent nerves in the brain from firing too much by lowering the excessive number of electrolytes believed to have a role in seizure conditions.
  • Sleep – Chronic pain, environmental stress and anxiety can all have negative impacts on your pet’s ability to sleep. As with people, CBD may also help your Furry Friends with getting to sleep.

Get the Right CBD Product for Your Pets

When it comes to finding the right Cannabidiol (CBD) products for your Pets there’s just a couple things to keep in mind:

  • For daily use, many pet owners are looking for CBD products that are THC-free.
  • They also want CBD products that are high quality.
  • And, are easy to add to their pet’s diets.

NEWYOU’s DROPS for PETS could potentially help all of these conditions and more:

  • It’s so easy to use – just squirt it into your pet’s water daily!
  • One-stop solution.
  • The product is THC-FREE.
  • Comes in a pet friendly 50 mg dosage.
  • It is tasteless so you can add to anything your pet consumes. Even the pickiest of Pets love NEWYOU DROPS for PETS.

Life can be as “RUFF” for our furry and non-furry friends as it is for us. So, it’s nice to know that there’s some natural relief for them, too. Birds of a feather DROP together, as do Cats, Dogs, other Mammals and even Reptiles, too. Keep the animals you love in tip-top shape from head to tail.

Hemp Seeds and Hemp Seed Oil – What’s the Difference?

There are many terms that get thrown around when you’re first learning the in’s and out’s of hemp seed oil products.

by Greg Montoya

When you go to Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, there are lots of products containing hemp seeds and hemp seed oils. For example, you can buy hemp seeds for salads, or soaps and lotions containing hemp seed oil, as well as good ole’ hemp oil to cook with. 

But the garden variety of hemp oil you see in most products comes from the industrial hemp plant; and the oil from this type of hemp is cold-pressed from the seeds to extract the oil.

Not to worry, here are some of the basics to help you navigate this new ground.

Hemp seed oil contains ZERO cannabinoids, as there’s NO CBD and NO THC. So, you won’t get the healthy benefits of CBD.

However: 

– Hemp seeds are very nutritious and high in protein,

– The oil is high in unsaturated fats,

– Both the seeds and oil are high in antioxidants, and

CBD – Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil – The “Motherload” of…

This is where you can get a motherload of CBD!

CBD oil is extracted from a phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) flowering strain of the industrial hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa) known as PCR Hemp oil. 

NEWYOU only uses PCR Hemp. Why? Because:

  • It’s extremely high in Cannabidiol,
  • It contains NO negligible amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), and
  • These strains of plants also have a very high concentration of CBD. 

Cannabis Sativa (PCR Hemp) does NOT “bud” like its high THC counterpart, Cannabis Indica. Cultivators do not grow PCR Hemp to produce buds, so it lacks the primary component that forms the marijuana high. Instead, they grow it in compliance with the Farm Bill Act to produce higher concentrations of Cannabidiol Oil. 

CBD oil can then be mixed with hemp seed oil, MCT, avocado or other types of carrier oils, to activate further bioavailability and digestion. CBD oil-containing products come in many different forms: tinctures, capsules, salves, serums, food and beverages.

4 KEY Components You’ll Want to be Familiar With When Talking About CBD Oil:

1) Full-Spectrum CBD Oil

Full-Spectrum CBD Oil retains all the original concentrations of cannabinoids, essential oils and terpenes as found in Nature. Full-Spectrum CBD Oil has some filtration and distillation to remove undesirable components… It’s as close to raw as you can get.

2) CBD Isolate

The most pure form of CBD is Isolate. The purification process removes all the ancillary terpenes and other phytocannabinoids and isolates CBD into solid crystals that are colorless, tasteless and odorless. 

NEWYOU goes beyond standard CBD Isolate by using a  Nano-Amplified™ technology to reduce the CBD isolate particle size into nano-size water molecules, making our CannaBD™ not only water soluble, but more bioavailable and potent than competing products on the market.

3) Full-Spectrum vs CBD Isolate: What’s the Difference?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of the many exogenous Cannabinoids found in Cannabis Sativa or Industrial Hemp. There are hundreds of other cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in Hemp; and when you select a Full-Spectrum version you are getting all these beneficial compounds in the same ratios as God intended. 

Experts Believe a Full-Spectrum Version Provides an “Entourage Effect”

Simply, this effect occurs when all the components of the hemp plant work synergistically together to multiply, enhance and activate each other, thus increasing the health benefits and improving the functioning of your Endocannabinoid System. 

Full-Spectrum oils tend to cost more than their CBD isolate counterparts as they contain all the plant compounds. NEWYOU offers a Full-Spectrum Canna-Active product called CB2 Plus.

CBD Isolate is Just That—The Isolated CBD Compound 

While CBD from Cannabis Sativa or Industrial Hemp, may have some negligible amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), when CBD is isolated any and all trace amounts are removed, as well as other ancillary plant materials, giving you the “purest” form of CBD available! 

Isolating CBD Yields Higher Concentrations of CBD Using Smaller Amounts

Many CBD enthusiasts and health professionals believe CBD isolates amplify the healing properties of the Cannabinoid. That’s why NEWYOU uses CBD isolates in many of our products.

4) Cannabis Oil

When you hear the words “Medical Marijuana” this is where cannabis oil comes into play. Cannabis oil is extracted from the Marijuana plant called Cannabis Indica. It contains high levels of THC or Tetrahydrocannabinols, the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological or “psychoactive” effects. This type of oil also has very low levels of CBD.

Cannabis oil is regulated in most states, either as medical marijuana or recreational marijuana.

The Bottom Line…

Just remember Hemp is not “Marijuana” and Hemp Seed Oil and CBD oil come in many shapes and forms. 

So be an educated consumer and enjoy the MANY wellness benefits that hemp and CBD have to offer… Your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) will thank you!

CB2 Plus Gold

And if you’re looking for the best Full-Spectrum CBD Oil on the market that will give you all the many benefits of the Hemp Plant and more, there’s no need to look further than NEWYOU’s CB2 Plus, The Gold Standard of CBD Oils!

NEWYOU‘S Proprietary Nano CBD Technology Makes CBD 10X More Effective Than Standard Tinctures. Here’s How…

In the marketplace of CBD, the word Nano gets thrown around a lot, creating unnecessary confusion for consumers.

by Greg Montoya

So with the help of NEWYOU’s Product Development and Procurement Expert, Pualani Armstrong, our goal here is to debunk that confusion, and clear the air on: 

  • Why size is extremely important, and why smaller is better when it comes to Nano CBD, and
  • Why NEWYOU’s Nano-Amplified™ technology that creates extremely tiny micro-sized particles has CBD consumers and experts buzzing with excitement!

What is Nano and Why is it Important? 

ARMSTRONG: “Nano” or Nano-Technology is the science, engineering, and technology of making things extremely small.

Specifically, we’re talking about bringing the size of something down to the Nano-Scale, which is in the range of about 1 to 100 Nano-Meters.

Nano-Technology may sound scary, but it’s used extensively by the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries for many reasons.

By Nano-Encapsulating active ingredients, and then creating an advanced delivery system using Nano-Emulsions, companies can dramatically increase the bioavailability and stability of their products. Also, in some cases it can offer a controlled release effect. 

“Ultimately, the goal is to protect active ingredients, make them more bioavailable and get them to the appropriate delivery points quickly and efficiently.”

What Is Nano CBD? 

ARMSTRONG: Using proprietary Nano-Encapsulation technology (NewYou’s Nano-Amplified™ technology), we enhance the bioavailability of Cannabidiol (CBD) by reducing the particle size and converting the CBD into a water-soluble delivery form. This is more easily assimilated by the body so that we can achieve maximum efficacy and greater health and wellness benefits… the end result is Nano CBD!

Why Use Nano CBD?

ARMSTRONG: Nano-Encapsulation is the “best way” to guarantee maximum bioavailability of any active ingredient. It also opens the door to a range of new formulations by creating a water-soluble ingredient. When it comes to absorption, research has shown that we may lose up to 90% of active ingredients by way of conventional delivery. This is via the GI tract and through the liver where active ingredients are broken down for assimilation.

Nano CBD Benefits The Body by Offering a Direct Path to Cells… 

Because in a Nano-Encapsulated form the CBD can cross the blood-brain barrier more quickly, bypassing the GI tract entirely. Essentially it gets CBD to the cell receptor sites as quickly as possible, with minimal loss along the way. 

The reason “Nano-Amplification” is important is because CBD by itself is an oily resin. It’s made up of large particle clusters of millions of individual CBD molecules. Since these particles are so large, they typically have to follow the usual path of digestion. This is going from the mouth, to the stomach, to the liver, so they can finally be broken down and assimilated by the body –  this process can result in a lot of waste and in reality is a very inefficient process..

Our Nano-Technology Makes Us Much More Efficient In How We Deliver CBD… 

Meaning that it safely breaks down each CBD particle cluster into its smallest form first. This is without affecting the molecular structure so that we can achieve higher bioavailability, targeted function, and ultimately a more powerful therapeutic effect. 

I like to use an analogy here…

  • IMAGINE that we are on a soccer field and a CBD particle cluster is the soccer ball and your cell membrane is the net designed to stop the soccer ball. Like the net, our cell membrane is a highly selective barrier designed to stop things from passing through. If we wanted to get the ball through the net, we could try reducing its size first.
  • Then IMAGINE, If we were to replace the soccer ball with a softball we might have a better chance of getting it through the netting. Now how about a golf ball? Better yet… What if instead we could throw handfuls of marbles at the net? If we threw marbles, there’s a good chance most of them would make it through that netting.

Well that’s essentially what’s happening with the body when we use a Nano CBD product. The CBD is still CBD, however we are reducing its size so it has a greater chance of permeating the cell membrane… just like those marbles! 

We know now that:

  • Bioavailability of Nano-Emulsified CBD molecules is somewhere around 7-10 times higher than that of traditional CBD, and
  • Has absorption rates of 80-90% when in the bloodstream compared to about 35% in conventional form. So, this is truly where the benefits lie. 

What Are Some Common Misconceptions About Nano CBD? 

ARMSTRONG: There is a common misconception that Nano-Processing affects the molecular structure of the CBD or impacts its efficacy negatively.” But that’s not correct, as we are not affecting the molecular structure of the CBD molecule at all. 

The CBD remains CBD and retains all its molecular  properties and health benefits. Instead, we are making each individual particle cluster of CBD significantly smaller. This way it can be broken down very quickly so that the individual CBD molecules can quickly reach the CB receptors, which really is a very good thing.

It’s Taken Years of R&D to Get it Right. When Your CBD is Nano-Amplified™ You Can be Assured it’s Reaching its Target – Your Body’s Cells.

Since we have so many more individual molecules now we also have the added benefit of greater surface area. So, each molecule can do more work. NEWYOU’s proprietary Nano-Amplified™ technology is really one of the best Nano processes in the industry.

So, How Do We Do It? 

ARMSTRONG: Well, without sharing too much of NEWYOU’s  “intel” we use concentrated energy waves to break apart the large particles of CBD. This reduces their size down to the Nano-Scale. At this point, we have to prevent the individual molecules and particle clusters from finding their way back to each other.

So, to keep those CBD molecules from bunching up again we use a proprietary blend of natural encapsulating agents to wrap the oil loving CBD molecules in a bubble like membrane. That has an affinity for both water and fat. 

The process of encapsulation is very critical as it protects and keeps the CBD in its smallest particle form. Also, results in a water soluble solution of CBD that is “Nano-Amplified” and can be used in any liquid based formula.

With every Nano-amplified™ CBD product created there’s a certain level of “good vibrations” added so to speak.

Why Did NEWYOU Choose to Use Nano-Amplified™ CBD? 

ARMSTRONG: As a manufacturer, we are always looking to create value for our customers and create products that are not only effective, but that won’t break the bank. We started with the end user in mind. Also, we knew that we had to create products that were most importantly effective, easy to use, and that tasted great.

Using our Nano-Amplified™ Technology allowed us to be incredibly efficient with how we use CBD in our products. More importantly, opened up so many options for the type of products we could create. 

When working with traditional CBD you’re really limited to oil based products. This is because as we all know oil and water don’t mix well so  using a traditional CBD oil or isolate in a water based product really isn’t a good solution so we knew we had to come up with something better.

By Increasing the Bioavailability of Our Products and Limiting Unnecessary Waste We Were Able to Bring Down Our Product Costs to the End Consumer…

By using less CBD than what would typically be required to achieve the same results. 

You’ll see that our Nano CBD products contain less mgs of CBD per unit than the standard CBD oil products. This is because we know our Nano CBD will be more bioavailable. Meaning, you need less of it to achieve the same results.

Nano CBD products on a mg-mg basis can be slightly more expensive than traditional CBD. But, typically Nano CBD products really are more cost effective in the long haul  because you need less CBD to achieve the same results. So there is definitely a cost savings as well. 

What are the Benefits of Nano CBD like Nano-Amplified™ to the User?

ARMSTRONG: Nano CBD bypasses the blood brain barrier without needing to hit the GI tract before it can be assimilated by the body. This means a more rapid onset and faster relief. Since Nano CBD is water-soluble there are many more product options available to consumers now. 

This new delivery system has really allowed users to find products that fit into their daily routines so they can get all the benefits of daily CBD supplementation from products that are convenient and easy to use. 

When it comes to health and wellness and making real life changes to become a “NEW YOU” you have to have products that you enjoy using. So that you’ll stick with them and really reap the long-term benefits.

Is There a Difference Between “Water-Soluble” and “Nano?”

ARMSTRONG: Yes… Definitely. There are many ways to convert CBD isolates and oil extracts into “water-soluble” forms. Nano-Encapsulation like our Nano-Amplified™ technology is one of the ways of achieving this. But, while Nano CBD is water-soluble, NOT all water-soluble products have been Nano-Encapsulated.

Concerning absorption and bioavailability, they are very different materials. You won’t get the increased absorption and the benefits of the greater bioavailability with a standard water-soluble CBD. 

How is Our Nano Different From Those of Our Competitors? 

ARMSTRONG: Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad science concerning CBD in and of itself. And, even more concerning, Nano CBD products. There are various processes that can be used to Nano-Encapsulate active ingredients like CBD. But, unfortunately many of these processes use questionable chemical encapsulates that are questionable at best. It took NEWYOU a long time and many years of Research and Development to perfect and create.

We were able to stay true to our mission of bringing health and wellness to the world and create our proprietary Nano material. It utilizes 100% natural encapsulating agents and truly maintains all the health and wellness benefits of CBD without unnecessary loss.

Plus, all NEWYOU products including our Nano-Amplified™ CBD products are made from pure hemp oil extracts – from registered US farms. Our hemp oil extracts are naturally processed using CO2 super critical extraction and tested (and retested) for potency and safety at a third party accredited laboratory.  

Can You Get High From Our Nano CBD? 

ARMSTRONG: No! We utilize a pure CBD isolate to make NEWYOU’s Nano-Amplified™ CBD. This means it is still THC-Free and can really be used by anyone anywhere. To support our quality pledge all of our raw materials undergo rigorous lab testing before being introduced into any product.

Once the final product is produced we conduct another round of testing to ensure that the CBD potency on the label matches what’s in the bottle. You can find these results on our COAs.
