Are you tired? Anxious? Running out of steam?
How about illness? Chronic pain? You’ve been to a hundred doctors and none of them can help?
Check out our list below to find out why hemp is being considered a miracle worker in medicine.
CBD Normalizes Body Functions
Medical research in recent years has discovered a body system called the Endocannabinoid System, and its primary function is to regulate physical, mental and emotional reactions in the body and keep you in homeostasis.
All that mumbo-jumbo basically means that your entire body contains receptors for chemicals called cannabinoids that keep you feeling the way you were built to.
While most people associate the word cannabinoid with marijuana, hemp is a healthier and more powerful alternative.
Marijuana and hemp are two different plant species in the same family, and while marijuana contains high amounts of the chemical THC (the psychoactive chemical that makes you feel high), the real health benefits are derived from the chemical CBD, which is found in much higher amounts in the hemp plant- and it doesn’t get you high.
2. CBD Has Anti-Cancer Properties
Research has shown that CBD has anti-tumor mechanisms that decrease or prevent the growth and spread of cancer cells. The chemical also helps to strengthen anti-tumor drugs and relieve extreme pain.
CBD fights cancer in other ways, too. It puts your immune system in full attack mode and helps to target the invader cells more efficiently.
Even better, CBD doesn’t have ANY crappy side effects like chemotherapy or radiation therapy, and can even help relieve the side effects that those drugs cause when used in conjunction.
3. CBD Can Help Treat Anxious and Depressive Disorders
CBD has been found to help treat various conditions of anxiety, including PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, OCD, Panic Disorder, and even depression.
As previously stated, the Endocannabinoid System bridges the gap between the physical and mental/emotional parts of the body and operates much like the system that controls and regulates hormones. When hormones like serotonin (which makes you happy) get out of whack, in some cases, this can trigger anxious or depressive reactions. CBD, the great regulator, can help to stimulate your body’s serotonin receptors to increase your mood and calm down the fight-or-flight response commonly associated with anxiety.
Additionally, CBD helps to counteract the negative effects of THC like sensory overload, panic, and paranoia.
All the more reason to toss out the medical marijuana and make room for hemp.
The potential benefits of CBD oil in hemp are nearly endless. There are hundreds of medical reports of miracle cures for epilepsy, cancer, chronic illness, autoimmune disorders, multiple sclerosis, neuro-degenerative diseases, and so on.
I am a high-stress person who has suffered from phobic anxiety in the past, and I try to avoid medications and synthetic ingredients as much as possible. High-quality natural CBD oil tastes really, REALLY bad, so I take it in an organic green drink.
It’s handy because I can take it on the go with me, and it’s made with whole plant hemp, plus the super greens give an added nutritional boost.
