The Health Benefits of Cannibadoil (CBD)

Cannabidoil (CBD) is a non-intoxicating  chemical compound found in the cannabis/hemp plant.  It is one of about 113 cannabinoids that have been isolated in cannabis/hemp to date. [1]  CBD plays a role in promoting the bodies natural healing processes through stimulating the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a system within the body that aids in the overall balance and well-being in the central nervous system, immune system, and the periphery. [2] Through CBD’s therapeutic effects within the body, it has become revered as an important natural herbal therapy around the world.  Reviewed research of CBD shows a favorable safety profile. [3] This is good news for those wanting to incorporate a natural herbal therapy into their health care routine with little to no known negative side effects.

Some of CBD’s known therapeutic effects are as follows: anti-anxiety,  anti-seizure, promotes bone healing, promotes alertness, anti-psychotic, anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, and immunomodulatory actions. [4] Obviously with the health promoting benefits mentioned above alone, we begin to have a deeper understanding into the importance of cannabinoid therapeutics such as CBD.  The anti-inflammatory aspect of CBD is an integral part of it’s therapeutic action. Since disease and it’s symptoms are correlated with inflammation, CBD can assists in lessening symptoms, flareups, and even aid in prevention.  The inflammation action may also assist in lessening pain and gastrointestinal symptoms and flareups.

Through anecdotal evidence and testimonials, it’s clear that people are finding CBD to have many benefits both physically and emotionally.  Personally I find that a high quality CBD preparation and or product gives me energy, clarity, calm, and pain relieving actions. These seem to be a common effects from others whom also use cannabinoid therapeutics that I know personally, and from testimonials that I read about on a daily basis.  Mother nature is one of the best healers on the planet, and if we can begin to incorporate natural herbal therapies into our daily lives, we may just experience a greater sense of health and wellness!

As with all herbal therapies, before incorporating them into your health care regiment, please talk to your health care providers.
