What is CBD?

Unlike THC in weed, CBD does not make you high. Many are calling it the “miracle molecule” because of its many benefits.

Some of the benefits include reducing Chronic Pain, Diabetes, Anxiety, Depression, Parkinson’s Disease, Heart Disease and much more.

Does CBD Get You High?
No! CBD is 100% non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t negatively impact your mind or mental process. In other words, CBD does not get you ‘high’ or stoned. There is no mental slowness or haziness caused by CBD. Seriously, none.

CBD vs. Opioids and Opiates
Opioid medication is frequently prescribed to treat painful conditions and injuries. However, this family of medications is often associated with addiction, withdrawal, and overdose. Cannabinoids may serve as an effective pain killer, and may have the potential to serve as a substitute for opioid treatments for pain. If this became a reality, it could have some life-saving outcomes, offering patients a far safer and perhaps more effective alternative.

The Dark side of Opioids and Opiates
The opioid epidemic or opioid crisis is a term that generally refers to the rapid increase in the use of prescription and non-prescription opioid drugs, particularly in the United States and Canada, beginning in the late 1990s. The increase in opioid overdose deaths has been dramatic, and opioids were responsible for 49,000 of the 72,000 drug overdose deaths overall in the US in 2017.

The opiate class of pain-killers consists of codeine and morphine, both potent pain-killing derivatives of the notorious opium plant. Both of these are highly addictive drugs. After WW2 and Korea, many GI’s returned with morphine addictions begun by combat medics treating battlefield injuries. Codeine was a common and potent ingredient in the days of unregulated patent medicine, addicting unsuspecting housewives and others in search of relief from pain or anxiety.

The opioid class includes heroin, vicodin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, demerol, and methadone. All opioids are synthetically manufactured chemical compounds that mimic the effects of opium derived drugs. All of these man-made drugs are highly addictive. Years of experience with opioids has shown the synthetic drugs to be even more addictive than naturally derived opiates such as codeine and morphine.

Both opiates and opioids, produce chemical dependency and the human body builds up a resistance known as tolerance. With dependency comes addiction. Over time constantly increased doses are required to achieve the same pain-killing effect. With increasing dosage comes the risk of a lethal overdose.

How Does CBD Work?

If you haven’t already heard, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive component of Cannabis that has a wide range of therapeutic benefits.

CBD is naturally occurring in the Hemp plant and according to the United States own government patent #6,630,507 it supports the nutrition of aging bodies.

The amazing thing about nature’s miracle drug is that it can either be taken sublingually (under your tongue) or used as a topical cream. There are different schools of thought with regards to how long it takes for CBD to take effect depending on the way you consume it. Some believe that sublingual consumption happens faster. If applied to the skin, the effects tend to last longer. When using CBD cream for pain, you’re taking advantage of the cannabinoid’s anti-inflammatory properties.

CBD interacts with the body in a variety of ways. One of the main impacts is the effect it has on the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating broad physiological processes. This includes mood, energy level, intestinal fortitude, blood pressure, glucose metabolism, immune activity, stress, hunger, and the experience of pain.

Cannabidiol is found to have particular benefits in regard to neuroprotection, for example in limiting neurological damage following stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neuro-degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

CBD oil is a carrier oil that contains a concentrate of cannabidiol extract. Different oils vary in strength and can be used to treat a variety of ailments. This oil is great for general relief for issues such as anxiety and gut problems. When consumed, CBD interacts with the cannabinoid receptors (CB1 & CB2), which interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) found throughout the body. The benefits are that it helps to combat anything that shouldn’t be happening in the body such as pain.

CBD and Pain Management
The government has weighed in on CBD and designated it totally fine for general consumption. You need to know about the pain-management effects.

CNN Doctor Sanjay Gupta, a neurosurgeon, medical professor, and an Emmy award-winning chief medical correspondent concluded, “The science is there. We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States. CBD Oil can help you.”

Dr. Gupta is not associated with any companies that produce, market or sell CBD products. That’s what makes his endorsement of CBD so powerful. For the first time, a nationally renowned and prestigious neurosurgeon is speaking out against the abuses of pharmaceutical drugs and educating consumers about the benefits of CBD.

The use of CBD supplements have skyrocketed across the US, and people of all ages benefit and are taking full advantage of its availability to buy it online while they still can and before it becomes a prescription.

CBD Oil Side Effects?

CBD is a safe pain relieving supplement. It works so well because our bodies already manufacture CBD compounds naturally.

These compounds are used by the endocannabinoid system or ECS. The ECS functions in the areas of the brain responsible for mood, sleep, and immune and healing response. The ECS also controls inflammation response to injuries or diseases.

The system can at times be overwhelmed by the stress of injury or chronic pain, such as arthritis and other age-related ailments. These can cause CBD deficiency. By supplementing the ECS supply of CBD, we’re merely restoring balance.

Because CBD is already naturally occurring in the body, we don’t have to worry about tolerances, and because it’s non-toxic and non-psychoactive, overdose or addiction are simply not possible.

We also learned that most scientists agree that decreasing stress levels play a part in battling cancer, heart disease and other stress related illness. Because CBD is derived from hemp, it does not contain the psychoactive ingredient THC, and gives its users a natural calming effect without any “high” or “euphoria” that is normally experienced with cannabis.
