cbd benefits

CBD (Cannabidiol) is the non-psychoactive ingredient found in Cannabis Hemp. Second, to THC in a race for popularity, CBD is quickly becoming known in the mainstream media, doctor’s offices, dispensaries, and online websites hoping to create a following for the good of them, their customers, and society as a whole.

Cannabis hemp has been praised for decades for its vast array of uses, but more recently, discoveries about CBD and the health and wellness benefits associated with regular use have gotten the attention of our society. How much proof do we need? How many children need to be healed? People need to realize the fact that cannabinoids are a necessary part of the human (and animal) diet for a healthy body. Different than THC, the non-psychoactive compound plays a different role. Although combined together, THC and CBD complement each other. CBD does the opposite of THC when it comes to euphoria. CBD is probably responsible for many first-time smokers’ ability to “keep it together” while the THC gets you high. CBD will counter the effects of THC by returning the user to its previous state of sober mind. One day hospitals will use high doses of CBD to counter the acts of THC in an overdose of edibles situation. Currently, it’s not available for hospitals to dispense at their leisure. [1]

The Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has always played a significant role in our “self-healing”…producing small amounts of cannabinoids for our CBD receptors to use in the fight against free radicals. [2]

With ideas like Monsanto, GMO, Dirty energy sources, Prescription pill tap water, fast food, faster pre-packaged foods, preservatives, etc our Endocannabinoid system is overloaded with free radicals. It needs help. It needs CANNABIS HEMP. The ECS consists of two types of receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB1 is primarily in your brain, where CB2 receptors reside more in your gut, where 70% of your immune system sits. These receptors will latch onto the gifted Cannabinoids, and strengthen the receptors so may go hunt free radicals in the body, eventually finding them, and destroying them. This paves the way for healthy cells to divide, inflammation to decrease, and pain to subside. Thus, creating Health, Wellness, and Balance in our bodies, so we may self heal like we did centuries ago.

CBD has been known to provide a line of defense against many diseases and ailments. Among these, Cancer happens to have a personal relationship with CBD, where it has a way of telling the cancer cells to commit suicide, meanwhile choking off tumor blood supply, and keeping it from dividing further. CBD can latch onto the cancer receptor and communicate with it using enzymes to send messages, slaving the cancer cell.

CBD Oil has been used to alleviate symptoms associated with anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, and colitis, diabetes, epilepsy, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, nausea, Parkinson’s disease rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, inflammation of the liver, side effects of Alcoholism, PTSD, Neurological disorders, Ulcers, Headaches, and ADHD.
