Health Benefits of CBD Oil 
Until very recently, CBD has lived in the shadow of its infamous cannabinoid cousin, THC, which is widely known as the high-inducing compound in Marijuana. However, extensive research is now being conducted on CBD and its medical potential, which has opened the doors for antipsychotic, anticancer and antiinflammatory treatment options among MANY others. One after another, scientists are publishing studies that prove CBD is the most dynamic and useful of the cannabinoids as far as promotion of proper function of the systems of the body is concerned.

We have listed 5 of the most astounding medical benefits of CBD for cancer, pain, anxiety & more.

Inhibition of cancer cell growth

Various studies have supported this claim. Via Proapoptotic action, (apoptosis is biology’s specific method of killing off its own cells in the overall process of cell replacement) Cannabidiol, Tetrahydrocannabinol, Cannabigerol and Cannabichromene in that order were highly effective in reducing the growth of tumors in both rats and cancerous human prostate cells. Research is still being conducted, but the most popular understanding is that these cannabinoids stimulate the body’s natural process of killing cells that are not functioning at their highest potential or that are functioning improperly. Unlike traditional chemo, which is poison that kills both healthy and cancerous cells during a specific stage of replication, and thus only works as long as cancer cells are replicating more frequently than healthy cells, cannabinoids promote the body’s natural immune response to cells that are doing something other than what they should be doing normally, thus facilitating the eradication of tumors.

Reduces Pain

One of the most common reasons that people start using marijuana recreationally is because they recognize that in addition to its psychoactive tendencies, it also is a functional pain reliever. People who have issues with chronic pain especially are observed to rely on cannabinoid products to deal with their pain and eliminate the source of it, which is most commonly inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury, flooding the area with blood and nutrients to aid in its rehabilitation. However, inflammation opens a whole new range of secondary problems including pain and discomfort. By stimulating the affinity of nutrients to the area that is injured, CBD causes a negative feedback to the inflammatory reaction, because the nutrients that inflammation would bring to the injury are already present.

Anti-Anxiety

Anxiety and PTSD have affected over 40 million adults in the USA. CBD oils and other products are now preferred over what are essentially the tranquilizers Valium and Xanax to treat this health condition. The effects of CBD are observed thoroughly by experts and various studies have proved its efficacy as a dependable option for mental disorders, as it is an α2-adrenergic receptor agonist and a 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, the two receptors in the human brain responsible respectively for mediating Adrenaline and Serotonin, both of which are related to anxiety, depression, insomnia, and many other mental disorders when they are imbalanced.

Enhances the immune system

Phytocannabinoids have been found to possess enormous capacity to balance and augment our immune system. Cannabinoid products taken on a daily basis can do wonders to regulate the immune system through many mechanisms of action, most of which are related to increasing the body’s recognition of foreign and potentially dangerous entities, including cancer cells.

Suppresses muscle spasms

With chemically antispasmodic properties, CBD is hailed by athletes from every sport. Highly preferred as a supplement, CBD oils have been proven to suppress muscle spasms and overall soreness by “lubricating” the system of potassium and calcium pumps in muscle tissue.

There is an vast array of benefits of CBD, especially when it’s coupled with the entourage effect perceived when several cannabinoids enter the bloodstream simultaneously. Make sure you consult your doctor before treating diagnosed or undiagnosed diseases with doses of CBD. Diseases like diabetes, schizophrenia, epilepsy, etc. are some of the more severe diseases that can be treated by CBD, but only when it is used properly.
Legal Status
Laws regarding the cultivation and use of Cannabis and any products which contain Cannabis are hairy, to say the least. Under federal prohibition since 1937, Cannabis as a plant has hundreds of uses, the most popular of which are of immense medical value. The cannabinoid with the greatest therapeutic potential is Cannabidiol, which is found overwhelmingly in the species Cannabis Ruderalis, commonly known as industrial hemp, and notable for its inherently miniscule amounts of THC. For corrupt bureaucratic reasons, this prohibition has persisted, and it has evolved to garner the support of the popular opinion, which only recently has begun to swing back toward the side of logic and reason.

The progress of this movement is documented in our long-awaited blog series titled The Legal Affair. The series begins with several posts outlining regulations at the state level, organized by time zone, documenting where we stand currently. These are followed by daily updates on news regarding new legislation and testaments of evolving public opinion.

For context, the medical value of Marijuana is overwhelmingly recognized only in the primary or secondary treatment of a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its primary treatment that produces one or more of the following:

Alzheimer’s Disease; Autism; Cachexia or wasting syndrome; Cancer; Anxiety; Crohn’s disease; Glaucoma;

Intractable (chronic) pain, which is pain that has not responded to ordinary medications, treatment or surgical measures for more than 6 months;

Mitochondrial Disease; Multiple Sclerosis or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS); Parkinson’s disease;

Peripheral neuropathy; Positive status for human immunodeficiency virus or acquired immune deficiency syndrome;

Posttraumatic stress disorder; Seizures, including that characteristic of Epilepsy;

Severe and persistent muscle spasms including those caused by multiple sclerosis or damage to the nervous tissue of the spinal cord with objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity; and severe nausea.
Understanding CBD 
Cannabinoids have almost everybody’s interest in the country. Some have already mastered the subject while others are stepping into the cannabis world gradually. Relying on the internet to get as much information as you want on CBD is a great idea, but this is what will happen. You will fill your search box with a CBD query and thousands of results will come up and will not only have the word CBD in it, but every term related to it will flash confusing like never before.

To spare you that confusion on the terms related to CBD, we have explained a few basic and necessary terms for novices. Let’s make a one step transit from the budding CBD enthusiasts and step into the real CBD market where you will have no difficulty differentiating between CBD, hemp, oil, etc. Here is the glossary:

Cannabis Sativa: Sativa is the species of plant that is included in the genus cannabis. You may hear another term “Cannabis Indica” along with the mention of Sativa leading to confusion. Just like Sativa, Indica too is a plant belonging to the same genus, Cannabis. The difference between both is that Sativa is used to produce hemp fibres, which eventually extracts CBD with minimal THC levels. While Indica has higher THC levels and can cause psychotic behavior on consumption.

Industrial Hemp: After years and years of Sativa cultivation, the cross breeding lead to a version of Sativa which consists less than 0.3% THC levels naturally. This version of Sativa is termed as industrial hemp. We have CBD brands who grow their own hemp industrially to produce top notch CBD products.

Cannabinoids: Cannabinoids is the class of molecules found in cannabis which is usually used to represent the compounds of cannabis collectively. CBD and THC are two such compounds of cannabinoids.

CBD: CBD, just like mentioned earlier is one of the many compounds that make cannabinoids molecules. Also referred as cannabidiol, CBD is currently preferred over other medications and THC induced drugs because of its non-toxicity and non-psychotic stream.

Endocannabinoid System: You will see this term whenever and wherever there is a reference of how CBD affect humans. This is because endocannabinoid system is present in our body and it consists of receptors like CB1 and CB2 that are attuned to react the consumption of cannabinoids.

Entourage Effect: This is a biological concept which refers to the efficacy of CBD compounds when consumed with a combination of inactive compounds. Cannabinoids seem to act efficiently when they are combined with other cannabinoids rather than alone. Thus to put simply, the after effect of consuming multiple cannabinoids is termed as entourage effect.

There are many more terms related to CBD, but they are more inclined towards the type of products that are produced using CBD. We’ll soon talk about more CBD related terms and products that could help you understand better. Knowing these terms will definitely help you understand the research and studies conducted on the subject.
