HASHTAG ORGANICS

Hashtag Organics is an innovative and passionate industry leader specialising in the development of CBD products for the UK and International market.

“This is isn’t just a standard treatment with an oral tincture at the start, this is layered CBD experience, with each part of the treatment designed to increase the efficacy of the CBD and ultimately target any concerns covered by the client in consultation. There are up to 9 processes of CBD in the CBD Facial treatment, for example.

You could call this a ‘holistic approach to Spa business” as our focus is the benefit being delivered to the client but attractive economies being achieved for the business” — Emma, Director, Hashtag Organics LTD

WHAT DOES CBD DO?
CBD stimulates the Endocannabinoid System. This is the body’s innate balancing mechanism and the key to regulating everything in the body, including metabolism, fertility, immunity to sleep & pain perception. Client case studies from our in-house salon have shown one client suffering lupus (a form of leukaemia) was able to come off of medication she had been on for 6 years after her 4th CBD massage, alongside taking CBD Hemp Oil Tincture daily.

CIBTAC

CIBTAC has been producing graduates of the highest calibre since 1977, and sets itself apart through the quality of its industry-leading, globally-recognised qualifications. This is achieved through a rigorous ‘end on exams’ assessment ensuring salon-ready graduates in demand by the world’s top employers.

Letter to Parliament

LETTERS TO PARLIAMENT

We have asked the Government to allow the spa industry to reopen in line with very strict safety guidelines, but our calls have not been heard.

The longer spas, beauty and wellness facilities are forced to remain closed, the more jobs are at risk as many businesses may never be able to reopen their doors. I feel your fear and frustration and we won’t stop fighting for a date for you, but we need you to join us and make some noise (and I know how noisy we can be) to increase our share of voice at government level.

We recognise the spa, beauty and wellness industry as a serious economic player in the UK, not to mention the significant role we play in supporting the mental and physical wellbeing of the communities and people we serve.

The continued uncertainty around when spa, wellness and beauty businesses can reopen has caused heightened anxiety on the long-term future of the sector and the thousands of jobs it supports.

 

We now need to UNITE AND CHALLENGE the government, like never before, to reconsider the re-opening of the spa, wellness and beauty sector alongside hairdressers, and provide a SPECIFIC DATE ONE WHICH WE WILL BE ALLOWED TO OPEN.

We have worked alongside our industry partners within the Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing All-Party Parliamentary Group to create two template letters for you to use to support us with this mission.

Please see below links to download two template letters: a letter from your organisation to the PRIME MINISTER and a LOCAL MP letter for you to distribute to your guests, members, partners and stakeholders.
  1. Letter to the Prime Minister (DOWNLOAD LETTER)
Please feel free to amend this letter accordingly and include your organisation’s letterhead. You will see where we have signposted where to include background on your organisation.
We suggest making the final version a pdf and in your covering note explain why you are writing.
Send this letter to: pmpost.int@no10.gov.uk

 

  1. Local MP letter (DOWNLOAD LETTER)
Please distribute this template letter to your members and partners and ask them to send it to their local MPs.
They can find their local MP by typing in their postcode here: https://members.parliament.uk/FindYourMP
Spa and Wellness colleagues in Scotland
1.These letters can be amended and can be sent to the First Minister at firstminister@gov.scot
A couple of tips to pass onto to your stakeholders:

 

  • MP’s should be addressed as Mr/Ms/Dr/ e.g. Mr Bloggs
  • Include their name and address – MP’s only listen to concerns from their constituents, so they need their address and postcode to confirm they are a constituent.
  • Make it personal – using their own words to explain their contribution to the local industry and their concerns will have more impact.
Do let us know if you have any questions.

We are your trade association and we are upfront and fighting for you.

JOIN US and let’s get the doors to our industry back open again. Let’s get back to doing what we do best, the nation needs us. LET’S MAKE SOME NOISE!

Warm Regards

Wellness and CBD

 At a time were increased wellbeing seems to be of the greatest priority, we bring you these stats on CBD. 

Around the World, concern is growing over the Coronavirus and how it is or will have an effect on our everyday lives. 

At this time supporting our immune system along with our physical and mental wellbeing has never seemed so important, so with this in mind we have looked at how a community of people felt when looking to CBD to support both their body and mind. 

Hashtag Organics like to adopt a truly holistic approach to human health and with our pharmacy-based range being fully accessible to you at your local pharmacy, you too can explore CBD as a potential option for supporting you mind and body health. 

CBD is classed as a food supplement in the UK, therefore no prescription is required. It is fully legal in the UK and all Hashtag Organics products are 0% THC (THC is the psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant) so you can receive all of the benefits of the industrial hemp plant with none of the “High” 

“TLC not THC”

All Hashtag Organics products are also Organic, Vegan friendly and independently third-party tested for quality control. 

33% of our clients take our CBD tincture oils for pain or chronic pain-related illnesses and 30% of our clients take the tinctures for Mood disorders such as Depression and Anxiety. We also see a great interest in our topical application soothing balm for tension and to promote balancing relaxation. 

Here is what some of our clients said directly about the tincture oils: 

“Having had a brain injury a few years ago I suffered from frequent headaches which often made juggling family, work & life difficult. Within a few weeks of taking this oil twice a day my headache completely vanished. I’m no longer in strong painkillers and missing activities with my kids because stuff is ‘too noisy’! I highly recommend trying this product and finding out how much it could help you.” Anne, Glasgow 

“I’ve been taking CBD for about 6 months now and tried a few different brands before finding #Organics, I can honestly say it’s the best brand I’ve tried. I’ve had arthritis for 25 years and after taking #Organics oil for two months I had halved the number of pain killers and anti-inflammatories I was taking and was a lot less anxious about the pain and able to live a more active life again. I’m also diabetic so I avoid flavoured CBD oils, and #Organics oils taste much better than unflavoured oil from the cheaper brands I tried. Worth every penny.” James, Cardiff

The Arthritis Foundation recently asked CBD related questions in a survey, and more than 2,600 arthritis patients answered. People with many different types of arthritis responded — the majority of whom have been living with osteoarthritis (52%) or rheumatoid arthritis (45%) for 10 or more years.

pastedGraphic.png

1. Many people with arthritis are using CBD or have used it.

There is no cure for arthritis, but people with arthritis want to take control by managing their symptoms.

  • 79% surveyed are currently using CBD, have used it in the past or are considering using it.
  • 29% report they currently use CBD to manage their arthritis symptoms.
  • Daily use is reported by 63% percent of those currently using CBD and 26% use it several times per week.
  • Of those surveyed, 62% use a liquid form of CBD and 55% use a topical product they apply to their joints.

pastedGraphic_1.png

2. Patients are using complementary and alternative therapies to relieve their pain.

Most people currently using CBD report relief of pain, the #1 arthritis symptom.

  • 87% of those who are currently using it say they use CBD to manage their arthritis symptoms.
    • The primary reason for using CBD is to relieve pain (94%).
    • Several survey respondents indicated they use CBD products for pain because it seems less addictive than opioids; a few say they have also used CBD to help wean off opioids following joint replacement surgery.
  • 33% of those surveyed have never tried CBD but are considering it. Those not considering using CBD say their symptoms are managed by other treatments, primarily nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs.

pastedGraphic_2.png

3. Respondents report a variety of benefits beyond pain relief from using CBD.

While pain is consistently cited as the most oppressive arthritis symptom in all past surveys, the disease causes many troubling effects. Of those currently using CBD to manage arthritis symptoms, roughly 3 out of 4 report it was either effective or very effective in relieving several symptoms.

  • 67% report improvement in their physical function.
  • Over 30% say it provides relief from morning stiffness and helps get them moving.
  • Three-fourths report improvements in their ability to sleep (71%).
  • Over 30% say it helped relieve symptoms of fatigue.

pastedGraphic_3.png

4. People report improvements in overall well-being, too.

CBD may be beneficial for the body, mind, and spirit. People who have used or are currently using CBD report emotional and mental health benefits, in addition to relief of physical pain.

  • 41% report a better overall sense of well-being with the use of CBD.
  • Relieving symptoms of anxiety were reported by 77% of those currently using CBD.
  • 67% report effectiveness in improving depressed mood.

Arthritis Foundation Guidelines on CBD

The purported pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of the cannabis plant have been claimed for millenia. Indigenous to Asia, archaeologists have found evidence of cannabis use for both its medicinal and recreational properties across the continent dating back to 8000BC. 

 

Research into the effects and benefits of CBD and other products derived from the Cannabis plant are still in their infancy, and despite the overwhelming amount of anecdotal evidence there is still very little scientific conclusions about the health benefits of the plant. Studies in animals have suggested that CBD is beneficial in relieving pain and inflammation, but these have not been validated in human studies. 

 

Despite this, the Arthritis Foundation has recently issued new guidance on CBD for adult arthritis patients, citing the group as one of the biggest buyers of CBD worldwide.   

 

Arthritis is a condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint or joints. According to the NHS more than 10 million people in the UK suffer from arthritis, with the two most common types of arthritis being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Although it is often associated with old age, arthritis can affect people of all ages including children. 

 

As one of the world’s largest organisations representing those suffering from arthritis, the USA-based Arthritis Foundation welcomes “new treatment options because no single drug, supplement or therapy works for everyone.” and says “The more options available, the likelier it is that more people will benefit.” while urging the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expedite their studies into CBD products. 

 

 The key takeaways from the Arthritis Foundation’s guidance on CBD are:

  • CBD may help with arthritis-related symptoms, such as pain, insomnia and anxiety, but there have been no rigorous clinical studies in people with arthritis to confirm this.
  • While no major safety issues have been found with CBD when taken in moderate doses, potential drug interactions have been identified.
  • CBD should never be used to replace disease-modifying drugs that help prevent permanent joint damage in inflammatory types of arthritis.

How Anxiety Effects the Brain

The NHS describes anxiety as a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe.” Anxiety affects all of us at one time or another, for example before an exam or job interview, and everyone has different triggers for their anxiety. 

Feeling anxious on occasion in stressful or worrisome situations is completely normal, however, anxiety can become a problem when people struggle to control their worries and it begins to affect their day to day life. 

Anxiety can occur alone, known as Generalised Anxiety Disorder, or as a symptom of other conditions including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, and phobias. 

 

UK-based mental health charity Mind list anxiety as the most common mental health condition in the country, with 5.6% of the population suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder, and 7.8% suffering from mixed Anxiety and Depression. 

Research conducted in 2013 found that women were more than twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with anxiety, and 7.2% of children aged 5-19 years old had suffered an anxiety disorder. 

 

There is still relatively little known about the mechanics of anxiety, until recently, scientists believed that the hub of anxiety in the brain was the amygdala, and that an over-active or hyperactive amygdala was the cause of anxiety disorders. But it is now understood that anxiety is a network across different areas of the brain and no single part of the brain drives anxiety.

 

One of the most common treatments for anxiety is the prescribing of a type of antidepressants called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that carries signals between brain cell, after carrying the message to the cells serotonin is usually reabsorbed by the nerve cells – known as reuptake. SSRIs work by inhibiting serotonin reuptake by the nerve cells, so there is more serotonin in the brain to carry more messages around the nerve cells. 

Although it would be far too reductive to claim that anxiety and depression are caused by low levels of serotonin, elevated serotonin levels help to relieve symptoms of both conditions and make patients more responsive to other treatments such as therapy. 

 

SSRIs, and other types of antidepressant medications, can however have some negative side effects including nausea, dizziness, insomnia, stomach problems, and can even exacerbate symptoms of anxiety and depression, and in extreme cases lead to suicidal thoughts and tendencies. Medical researchers Eos Scientific found earlier this year that these negative side effects were some of the main reasons that sufferers were reluctant to seek help or take medication for mental health conditions. 

 

Those suffering from mental health conditions make up a large section of CBD users, finding it to be an effective alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals used to treat anxiety and depression. 

 

CBD affects the brain in a different way to serotonin and antidepressant medications. Where SSRIs work primarily on the central nervous system, controlling how nerve cells absorb serotonin, CBD affects the Endocannabinoid System – one of the human body’s major organ systems with receptors throughout the body.  

 

The Endocannabinoid System was discovered only 30 years ago and is responsible for regulating the body and maintaining homeostasis. Essentially, the Endocannabinoid System is the body’s internal balancing mechanism, and regulates many of our daily functions including mood, mental health, appetite, metabolism, inflammation, pain sensitivity, sleep, memory, and immunity. 

 

Unlike the body’s other organ systems the Endocannabinoid System is not an isolated structure, but rather a system with receptor sites throughout the body and on every major organ. This complex system of receptors – CB-1 and CB-2, actually has more receptors than all other neuromodulatory receptors combined. 

 

CB-1 receptors are expressed most densely in the central nervous system and are responsible for mediating the effects of cannabinoids in the brain, as well as cell regulation. CB-2 receptors are found most commonly in the immune system as well as peripheral nerve cells, and are responsible for managing perception and relief from pain. 

 

Different cannabinoids work on the Endocannabinoid System in different ways. Some cannabinoids, such as THC found in Marijuana, trigger the receptors and produce as different reactions – for example the ‘high’ associated with Marijuana use. 

 

CBD, however, doesn’t actually trigger the receptors in the same way as other cannabinoids. Instead, CBD attaches itself to the receptors and modifies them to enhance the way other cannabinoids bind to them and trigger them, including cannabinoids produced by the human body like Anandamide. These enhanced receptors boost the levels of cannabinoids in the Endocannabinoid System by helping the receptors to absorb more of the body’s own cannabinoids, which in turn help the Endocannabinoid System to better maintain homeostasis and promote a sense of balance throughout the body.

Opioid Painkiller Addiction Awareness Day

Many substances can be addictive, but opioid painkiller addiction is one of the most talked about in the media today. In the USA it has been deemed an epidemic, and there have been fresh warnings this week that the UK is dangerously close to suffering a similar epidemic


Opioid Painkiller Addiction Awareness Day (OPAAD) aims to raise awareness of addiction, reduce stigma and help sign post people to where they can get help. Misconceptions and myths still surround addiction, which can prevent sufferers from seeking treatment or even recognising symptoms of addiction in themselves or loved ones. 

 

Opioids are a family of medicines usually prescribed to treat chronic or long term pain for which over-the-counter painkillers are too weak, as well as for short term use to treat pain following surgery and other medical procedures. Opioids are synthetic substances which act on the body’s opioid receptors to produce the ‘morphine’ effect found in opiates, which are natural substances found in the poppy plant. 

 

Addiction is defined as being physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance or activity. Common addictions include medication or prescription drugs, illicit drugs, alcohol, caffeine, gambling, and exercise. 

 

Addiction is often misunderstood as being about ‘chasing a high’, be that the high of intoxication caused by alcohol and drugs, or the high caused by a flood of endorphins such as dopamine, released by the brain following exercise or winning when gambling.
However, while chasing highs is undoubtedly a large part of addiction, the brain also begins to associate times, places, people and experiences with an addictive substance or activity, therefore the substance or activity becomes a part of your routine, a habit. 

For example, if you routinely come home from work stressed and have an alcoholic drink to relax and chill out, your brain begins to rely on alcohol as a way to deal with other stressful situations as well. Your brain also begins to associate the time and place with drinking – at home after finishing work – develops the habit of having a drink when you come in from work, stressed or not.

 

Opioid medication is typically prescribed for severe or long term pain that weaker, over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen are not strong enough to treat. They are also often prescribed short term following surgery or medical procedures which cause severe pain. Opioids are classed as narcotics and come in various forms including pills, soluble tablets, liquid medicine and injections. 

 

Opioids and narcotics work by attaching themselves to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, reducing, or blocking completely, the pain signals being sent around the body and boosting feelings of pleasure. However, the very thing that makes these drugs an effective treatment for severe pain is also what makes them dangerous and addictive. When taken as prescribed, one of the most common side effects of opioid painkillers is drowsiness, as they slow down your breathing and heart rate, and lower your blood pressure. However, when taken more often than prescribed or in larger doses, opioid painkillers can slow down your heart rate too much eventually leading to death. 

 

In reducing pain signals in the body, opioids also create what is often described as a feeling of 

euphoric high, offering temporary relief from anxiety or depression or just a feeling of well-being and happiness. While this is a welcome relief for chronic pain sufferers, it can lead to dependency on and high tolerance to the opioid, with patients needing stronger doses to achieve the same level of pain relief, or explore other methods of pain management. 

 

In worst cases it is this euphoric high that can lead to addiction, and some patients are more at risk than others. 

 

There are many risk factors associated with substance addiction and abuse, one of which is pre-existing mental health problems. Chronic pain often has no obvious cause or diagnosis and therefore is frequently accompanied by feelings of anxiety or depression due to the impact it has on the patient’s life and lack of answers about their condition. Patients who suffer mental health problems are more at risk of developing an addiction to opioids, exceeding dosage, or turning to stronger illicit drugs than patients who do not have mental health problems. The highs and heightened pleasure associated with opioids also help lift patients temporarily out of depression or anxiety. 

 

This is not to say that everyone prescribed opioid painkillers who also has mental health problems will go on to become an addict or abuse stronger illegal opioids –  far from it – but it is something doctors should be taking more seriously according to those working with recovering addicts. Advocates claim it is a multi-faceted issue and that socioeconomic issues also contributing to the risk of addiction, with prescription rates highest in more deprived areas with high unemployment, and that doctors need to do more to check on vulnerable patients at risk of developing an addiction. 

 

The risk of dependency, addiction, and other negative side effects associated with opioid painkillers have led many to seek alternative ways to manage their pain. 

 

An increasing number of patients are turning to CBD to help them deal with severe and long term pain. While opioids work on the opioid receptors to block pain signals in the nervous system, CBD works on receptors in the Endocannabinoid System to maintain homeostasis and promote a sense of balance within the body. 

 

The Endocannabinoid System is the body’s internal balancing mechanism, responsible for maintaining a long list of bodily functions including pain sensitivity, inflammation, stress responses, immunity, sleep and mood. Cannabinoids are produced by the human body which trigger receptors in the Endocannabinoid System to maintain balance in the body. CBD does not trigger these receptors but rather manipulates them to help absorb more of the body’s natural cannabinoids. In turn this helps the body to better manage your responses to pain and inflammation, as well as maintaining positive mental health. 

 

Its use as an alternative to opioid painkillers for managing pain is not the only thing CBD has the potential to offer when it comes to addictive painkillers. 

 

Studies are now being conducted into how CBD could help to treat addiction, offering an alternative to the likes of methadone – access to which is usually much tighter regulated than access to opioid painkillers. There is still a lot of stigma attached to methadone treatment, with many associating it with heroin addiction, but CBD does not have the same stigma and is much easier to access than prescription only methadone. 

 

A small double blind study conducted in the USA found that CBD reduced cravings and anxiety in former heroin users when presented with triggers for heroin use, compared to the placebo group. The study consisted of just 42 participants, all former heroin users, and the research team are now working towards a larger study to develop CBD based treatments for opioid addiction. 

 

Many believe that they have to hit rock bottom before seeking help for opioid dependency or addiction, but that is not the case. If you, or someone you know, are struggling with opioid use, or are worried about your current pain management plan, contact your doctor to discuss other options.
