Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-intoxicating element of the cannabis seed which evokes remarkable healing properties in the body and mind. Researchers are employing CBD-rich products to support the body to heal conditions including chronic pain, tumors, Crohn's, diabetes, arthritis, PTSD, coronary disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant microbe infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and much more. Academic research centers in America and elsewhere are studying the effects of CBD on these and other health problems.
Cannabidiol is obtained from cannabis plants and can be used as an oil. CBD oil is extremely rich in natural chemicals called cannabinoids that bind to peculiar receptors in the brain, gut, and throughout the body. The most common cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) makes people feel “high” after using marijuana.
THC, however, is just one of the several cannabinoids available. Cannabidiol, or CBD, also forms a bond to these receptors but doesn't make one high, yet still has many therapeutic benefits without documented side effects.
Advocates and their research on cannabidiol confirm that there are several benefits of cannabidiol oil which ranges from slowing down the growth of cancer cells, removing plaque in the brain, decreasing inflammation, to improving mental health, particularly anxiety and sleep. They have also found that adding a very small amount of THC to the Cannabidiol activates it to work more effectively in the body but doesn’t have enough THC to create any intoxicating effect. This combination therefore increases its therapeutic benefits and can be used with children, elderly and pretty much anyone who is looking for natural healing with no negative effects.
A study also found that cannabidiol could reduce symptoms of social anxiety disorder (SAD). Brain scans of participants revealed changes in blood flow to the regions of the brain linked to feelings of anxiety. This study shows that cannabidiol improved participants emotional state and altered the way their minds responded to anxiety.
Consequently, the report warns that there is little data available on the long-term use of CBD oil. There is, however, much research strongly suggesting the role of cannabidiol in treating anxiety, epilepsy, depression, sleep disorders, pain and inflammation, Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders, and the list goes on and on.
Cannabis has been stigmatized for many years, but experts and most people can attest to the plant's substances, known as Cannabinoids, which naturally support the body’s healing ability to cure many health issues, as previously stated.
That said, CBD is relatively easy to find on the internet and in many stores and pharmacies throughout the country, as it is legal and doesn't need a prescription. The main concern is getting the right brand that has the most natural ingredients, highest potency, and sourced in the proper way for the best price. I have done my research and have found what I consider the best CBD products and my personal experience with these products as well as my patients testimonials, attest to my findings. The products I carry are topical ointments, body butters, patches, and sublingual drops in different strengths for humans and pets.
