 Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a compound that research suggests has significant medical benefits. It is the main active compound in hemp, and unlike THC (the main active compound in Cannabis) it is non psychoactive, and will not make you "high". CBD is a great option for persons looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, and other conditions without negative side effects, making it an incredible natural alternative to prescription drugs which come with a multitude of negative side effects.  

The Endocannabinoid System

 Within our body there exists a system called the Endocannabinoid System. Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

There is a lot of amazing scientific information available regarding CBD, how it works, and its benefits. Check out these articles below for more in-depth coverage:

What Can CBD Do For Me?

Pain/Inflammation

 CBD may just be natures greatest anti-inflammatory.  Research shows Cannabinoids are potent anti-inflammatory agents. Instead of masking pain, CBD goes straight to the source of pain and restores balance in the body, reducing inflammation and as a result reducing pain. 

Anxiety, Depression, & Mood Disorders

 CBD is a natural anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), and boosts serotonin and dopamine production in the brain. It also works to regulate stress responses in the body.  

ADD/ADHD

 CBD can help regulate mood swings, and support the sustaining of balance within the body.  Its boost in dopamine production helps memory and focus. Sleep comes easier, and in turn promotes concentration and reduced impulsiveness.  

Cancer Related Symptoms

 CBD has been shown to help soothe the symptoms of cancer or the side effects of cancer therapy like  pain (including pain caused by damaged nerves), nausea and vomiting, anxiety, and loss of appetite.  

Schizophrenia

  Schizophrenia and its symptoms can largely be affected by neurotransmitter imbalance. The benefits of CBD for schizophrenia are similar to all the benefits CBD has. It helps regulate the endocannabinoid system, thereby helping the body reach homeostasis. This helps normalize insufficient dopamine in the brain, which can be responsible for hallucinations, mood disorders, and more.  

PTSD

  Studies have shown CBD can lessen the emotional impact of traumatic events and helps patients to experience less anxiety and fear as well as improving their ability to sleep.  

Skin Conditions

 CBD is a powerful antioxidant and contains many vitamins and minerals. It protects your skin from UV, smoke, and other pollutants. Acne is preventable due to CBD's ability to adjust the level of oils in skin and hair. CBD also promotes skin and hair growth and repair. 

IBS

 CBD my help reduce pain and inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract by slowing the secretion of gastrointestinal fluid. As an anti-spasmodic, CBD soothes muscle spasms and creates a calming effect. 

Heart Conditions

 CBD may assist with relaxing arterial walls, reducing inflammation, protecting and repairing tissues, and even reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines. It naturally lowers blood pressure, and diminishes stress.  

Seizures

image11

 CBD has anticonvulsant properties. This means it may prevent or reduce the severity of epileptic fits or other convulsions. CBD targets different regions of the brain that trigger convulsions. This includes the receptor agonists, GATA transcription factors, sodium and calcium ion channels, and glutamine receptor antagonists.   

Immune Health

Cannabinoids are a type of immunomodulator, which means they may help regulate and influence the function of the immune system. Research shows they reduce inflammatory response for those with autoimmune diseases, and protect and lubricate systems for optimal function.
