Cannabidiol (CBD) is taking the medical world by storm. CBD has become the new buzzword in health. Since the cannabis industry requires more research, both the FTC and FDA have made it very clear CBD and possible health benefits have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
The human endocannabinoid system was first discovered in mid 1975, and research shows that the system uses cannabinoid receptors that work throughout the body to help regulate mood, pain, appetite, liver and muscular function, and more. This system includes two cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. CB1 is known to assist with your liver, balance, pleasure, and pain tolerances. CB2 has been shown to improve our immune systems.
The CBD will either be from the whole hemp plant called full-spectrum CBD and is known to be the most potent form. You can also use a CBD isolate derived from a specific cannabinoid set.
Surprisingly, physical pain is one of the largest issues facing those suffering from chronic and mental illness, as anxiety/depression often manifests in the body. Disorders including diabetes, arthritis, MS, chronic heart disease and others, can cause unrelenting pain that won’t resolve with the usual relievers.
Preliminary studies of how hemp CBD work with pain management suggest using CBD may be useful in helping increase the quality of life and the ability to rest without pain. Some research suggests CBD oils and edibles could be a great solution for those that are sensitive to certain medications.
Chemotherapy and radiation are common treatments for cancer; both of which are not designed to kill just cancer. Chemo can kill all bacteria including probiotics or good bacteria, which often leads to painful sickness, nausea, weakness and the immediate shutdown of all non-essential functions which includes hair and nail growth.
Research suggests CBD could be helpful for chronic pain as well as increased appetite. In June 2018 the FDA approved the first medicine with CBD included. It is said to help combat nausea. This is still in early trials and not available to the general public just yet. Newer studies are showing that the effect of hemp CBD, when used with traditional methods, may have a synergistic effect on each other.
Hemp-derived Cannabidiol (CBD), is becoming a potentially viable alternative to expensive antidepressant medications for the treatment of many forms of depression. Both hemp and cannabis have found throughout history as far back as 2000 BC for calming stress and anxiety. Untreated or ignored anxiety can become a debilitating disorder including panic attacks, depression, PTSD, OCD and even bipolar or schizo-type illnesses.
CBD has been touted as a bona fide anxiolytic, and possibly an antidepressant. Whether its social anxiety or generalized anxiety disorder, CBD may be the solution you’re looking for. If you’re considering using CBD as a replacement for your current mood disorder or mental health medication, first consult with your psychiatrist and/or physician.
Some smaller studies have shown CBD at bedtime could improve sleep, and a study on rats in 2013 showed CBD increased total sleep time. Concerning sleep apnea, a 2002 animal study observed the ability of THC to restore respiratory stability by modulating serotonin signaling and reducing spontaneous sleep-disordered breathing.
The compound terpene myrcene present in CBD acts as a natural sedative and improves the quality of sleep. When you have a high-quality sleep, it aids body repair, better cognition, and increased immunity.
CBD may significantly aid in the reduction of arthritic pain, including rheumatoid, osteoarthritis, gout and other joint diseases. CBD affects your immune system, which could naturally make it helpful for an autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Studies have also found CB2 receptors are found in unusually high levels in the joint tissue of arthritis patients. CBD may also fight inflammation in the joints by activating the pathways of CB2 receptors.
Seizures are exacerbated by epilepsy, tumors, head injury or may be idiopathic (caused by an unknown reason). A mass amount of research is starting to surface revealing hemp CBD may assist with the reduction of seizures, including frequency and length.
CBD may be a viable alternative to other medications. Furthermore, the side effects associated with using a potent hemp derived CBD are minimal compared to harsher medically approved seizure medications.
