Cannabidiol better known to the world right now as CBD is a super green, but not as you know it.
It’s everywhere, all over the press, with claims that it has stopped terminally ill cancer patients from dying of their cancers.
Can this really be true? Why not?
Ok, so CBD is from the marijuana plant, but before you panic, it won’t get you stoned or high. CBD is simply one of the 100+ chemical compounds found in the cannabis [marijuana] plant.
The stuff that does gets you high, that’s called THC [I'm sticking to the abbreviation as the full name is a real tongue twister hahahaha].
THC is removed from CBD so you don’t get ‘high’, but you still get the ultra-benefits from this leafy super green.
CBD oil is made by simple extracting the CBD from the cannabis plant and then diluting it into hemp seed oil.
So, that’s the 'what' it is...
Why has it become so popular so fast?
Reports of cancer curing and scientific reports that suggest it helps treat chronic pain and anxiety have thrust it to attention of most conscious of health.
From the research that we have studied, there are 5 massive benefits from taking CBD, but we’ll let you decide if it’s an option or not...
1. Has the ability to relieve pain
Pain like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, back pain and more have, in research, been relieved by CBD usage. Interesting, isn't it?
2. Reduction in Anxiety & Depression
These are the most common mental health issues today and the stats suggest the number of people being diagnosed with these issues have risen dramatically.
CBD has been found to reduce the effects on this part of the system more naturally better than medical interventions.
3. Reduction in cancer related symptoms
As above some reports suggest CBD has cured individuals of cancer, but that is one offs and not proven. However, CBD has shown in studies to reduce symptoms of cancer like nausea, vomiting and pain.
4. Heart Health Benefits
In recent studies, CBD usage has been linked to reducing blood pressure. A great study, that may pave the way for CBD to be a great natural alternative to conventional medicine.
5. Reduce Cancer Spreading
As with all these benefits, they are only backed by research and this benefit is no different. In animals CBD has demonstrated anti-tumour effects preventing the spread of tumours on the breasts, prostates, brain and lungs.
So, with no real documented side effects of CBD... What could you be missing?
It’s an interesting topic and a natural remedy with lots of benefits, but what are your thoughts?
