CBD Benefits

Now that you know the difference between THC that comes from cannabis (marijuana) and CBD which is derived from hemp, you may be wondering what exactly is a cannabinoid? These are chemical compounds that act on receptors found in your brain as well as in your body and produce various effect, such as the regulation of inflammation, mood, appetite and pain perception.

In fact, your body naturally produces similar compounds all on its own, called endocannabinoids, which explain the presence of these receptors in your body. The receptors involve movement and the emotion and thinking. THC (the psychoactive compound) attaches to these CB1 receptors.

The CB2 receptors are more commonly found in your immune system and are involved with pain and inflammation. Scientists used to believe that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors but now more current research suggests that CBD does not attach to either receptor, but simply allows your body to use more of your own naturally produced cannabinoids.

Because you have these cannabinoid receptors in place you can take advantage of products which contain cannabinoids and not have to rely on the ones your body produces. When you take a product that contains CBD, you can get the therapeutic effects of the cannabinoids without the intoxicating effect that comes with products that contain THC.

Let's look more closely at CBD and just a few of the ways in which this remarkable compound is being used:

CBD For Anxiety: A 2013 study in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology outlined CBD's many therapeutic effects, including its effectiveness in treating anxiety. Plus a 2015 review article in the journal Neurotherapeutics supported CBD's use in the treatment of anxiety and related disorders including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD.) This is especially interesting, as physicians will often advise patients not to take THC, as the psychoactive compound can set off feelings of anxiousness or even paranoia. CBD on the other hand, does not seem to have this detrimental effect.

CBD For Insomnia: Because CBD has the ability to reduce anxiety, this effect alone can help some people with insomnia, as anxiety is a mojor cause of sleep disruption. But CBD has been shown to increase sleep and improce insomnia in patients without anxiety. CBD is also useful in patients who suffer from diseases involving REM sleep disorders which is common in patients with Parkinson's disease as well as those who suffer from PTSD.

CBD for Joint Pain and Inflammation: One of the major problems with opioid medications in the treatment of pain, besides their addictive potential, are the unpleasant side effect associated with these medications, such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation and other distressing symptoms. A 2009 review article in the Journal of Opiod Management concluded that the pain relieving properties of CBD provide a welcome alternative to opioid medications. Another 2008 journal article reviewed CBD's effectiveness in relieving chronic, difficult to treat pain and concluded that the cannabinoids were safe, effective and showed great promise.

CBD for Depression: in addition to its effectiveness in the treatment of anxiety, CBD has been shown to be ffective in the treatment of depression, which often goes hand-in-hand with the anxiety disorders. CBD appears to help with both depression and anxiety because of its effects on the brain's serotonin receptors, the same receptors targeted by the antidepressant drugs manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies.

CBD is a safe and effective natural product that has tremendous potential to relieve a host of distressing symptoms as well as to provide effective treament for many diseases, especially when you choose a reputable, trusted company for your supplier such as Cali CBD/Pets4CBDs, who not only guarantees their products come from the highest quality sources but also provides test results showing the active amounts of naturally occuring CBD and their cannabinoids.

Cupid's Little Helper: CBD supplements and oils just might help you regain your mojo in the bedroom. There's been an explosion of sex-related CBD products, mostly targeted toward women. A 2017 Stanford University study found that cannabis use may encourage sexual activity. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties may ease pain during intercourse. For many, it can be a nonintoxicating way to relax mentally, while also enhancing pleasure and reducing pain. This is mainly due to CBD's calming properties and its ability to combat pain and inflammation, which many women report during and after sex. In addition, a connection has also been established beween secual arousal and the endocannabinoid system, which is the larger system in the body that CBD interacts with.

Cannabidiol has been shown to:

  • Inhibit cancer cell growth when injected into breast and brain tumors in combination with THC

  • Reduce or eliminate seizures and convulsions

  • Reduce vascular tension

  • Relieve anxiety

  • Be useful in the treatment of oxidation associated diseases including ischemic, age-related, and autoimmune diseases

  • Be neuro-protective, for example, limiting neurological damage following stroke and trauma

  • Be helpful in managing neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and HIV dementia

  • Lower blood sugar levels

  • Alleviate nausea

  • Be analgesic (pain-relieving), antibacterial, and antioxidant

CBD may not be a cure-all, but plenty of patients out there now consider CBD to be at least a "cure-a-lot." From cancer to stress to sports injuries, the list of issues it can potentially help with continues to grow. A classic rock 'N' roller. A family of physicians. An international corporation: more and more people, organizations and groups are getting involved to bring the power of CBD to those who truly need it. There's a growing consensus that CBD can help improve your personal health. And from sex to booze to shopping to your pets, it seems like it also might add to the quality of your personal life.

 

Before giving CBD a try, it's a good idea to learn as much as you can about this new "medical miracle," from how it works to where it's legal to the best ways to consume it. Always consult with your doctor before starting CBD treatment. Do plenty of your own research into CBD's benefits.

Few physicians are schooled in CBD, so doctors and patients are finding new ways to learn how it can help.

80% of U.S doctors say they have talked with their cancer patients about marijuana. However, only 50 percent feel they know enough to advise about how to to use it.

30%: The percentage of epilepsy patients who do not respond to conventional treatments to control seizures.
