CBD, or cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. It is now legal in the entire United States, and it does not have the same effect on you as marijuana. The CBD market has grown rapidly since the government has made CBD legal in just the last 5 – 10 years starting with the states.
Benefits of CBD and CBD Oil
While it might come as something of a surprise to many out there, cannabis has been shown to reverse cancer or stop it completely in what is known as cell apoptosis, or death of the cancer cell itself. It can no longer spread to new areas as it simply stops.
Yes, Harvard has known about this and reported it for years. So have other Universities in Spain and even Tel Aviv. The simple fact is, the cancer treatment industry is billions and trillions of dollars and cannabis is essentially a weed that you can grow in your backyard.
Hope for Kids With Autism and Seizures
CBD is the ultimate fear of big pharma, the medical insurance companies, and all medical monopolies over some of the most gruesome conditions and their treatment. For long cancer alternative treatments have been kept on the sidelines due to corruption in the government bureaucracy and its revolving door of CEOs that “serve” in a public capacity from time to time. Some kids that did not respond to traditional anti-seizure meds have been almost completely seizure free once they started treatment with CBD.
If it’s good for the kids, then it’s gotta be legal, right? Well, I wish it were that easy, but you already know it isn’t. The fact is CBD is good for so many things and can even help patients on existing medications to regain their appetites or sleep better at night, reduce pain, etc. While the government and doctors are very slow to acknowledge any real benefit of CBD or cannabis, it is rooted mainly in their own self-interest to control access to cures and treatments.
Conditions that CBD can help
CBD is great for treating chronic pain because it is natural and not opiate or opioid based, not addictive, and the body does not create a higher tolerance with each use.
CBD is great for anxiety/depression, IBS, restlessness and sleep disorders, migraines, inflammation of joints, and many other conditions.
My personal story with cannabis
Personally, I have used both CBD and cannabis with THC, and I can speak very highly of them, no pun intended. With cannabis I can actually sit down and calmly mete out work on my computer, I can have some directly before a long run, and it reduces my interest in consuming alcohol. On top of that, it gives me a feeling of general ease and relaxation that lasts for a long time even if I don’t necessarily feel “high” that I lack without it.
I have a history of anxiety and depression, and cannabis just seems to shut out a lot of the negative recurring thoughts that I have on a regular basis. At the end of the day, only you can determine if CBD oil is a benefit to your life. With nothing to lose, what would you gain if you tried it and it made your life better? Good luck
