Question: What is cannabis CBD and what does it do?
Answer: CBD is short for Cannabidiol a non-psychoactive molecule found in every cannabis plant including industrial hemp and Echinacea. Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid. We all know most about “THC” because of the illegal aspect but each cannabis plant has 140 known cannabinoids and THC and CBD are just two of the 140.
CBD is what parents are using for their children who have seizures, autism, and behavior disorders instead of prescription drugs. CBD tames the psycoactivity influence of the “THC”, allowing patients to focus on the THC’s therapeutic powers at higher concentrations.
CBD attaches primarily to the CB2 receptors in the blood that control your organs and immune system. Numerous studies have shown CBD affects diseases of the mind and body, particularly neurological diseases, inflammatory illness, and cancer.
CBD may be useful to prevent nerve damage associated with alcohol poisoning providing neuroprotection. CBD appears to calm autonomic responses to stress by engaging receptors that select serotonin to achieve a calming effect. Therapeutic potential for psychological disorders are based on its antipsychotic, anxiolytic, and antidepressant effects.
Here is a short list of what CBD can treat:
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, Anxiety, Appetite, Arthritis, Asthma, Cancer, Cardiovascular Function, Depression, Digestion, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Headaches and Migraine, Huntington Disease, Immune Function, Inflammation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Liver Disease, Memory, Metabolism and Energy Homeostasis, Multiple Sclerosis, Nausea and Vomiting, Neural Development, Neuropathic Pain and Chronic Pain, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid, Osteoporosis, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Parkinson’s Disease, Psychiatric Disease, Psychomotor Behavior, Schizophrenia & Psychosis, Spinal Cord Injury & Disease, Stress & Emotional State Regulation, Tourette’s Syndrome, Wake/Sleep Cycles, Wasting Syndrome in AIDS and Cancer Patients.
CBD is also known to control certain cancers, anti-tumor effects, stimulates bone growth, stops growth of bacteria, suppresses muscle spasms and convulsions, reduces blood sugar levels, reduces the risk of artery obstructions, decreases pressure in blood vessel walls, reduces risk of nerve damage, and decreases the social isolation caused by THC.
As mentioned above this is the short list! People using cannabis are healing themselves, restoring their health, taking fewer toxic prescription drugs, fewer doctor and hospital visits, and report a better quality of day and life.
Science says cannabis is a whole food with 489 distinct compounds that all vertebra: Mammals, birds, fish, and reptiles, require for homeostasis- mental and physical wellness.
As a society we should not legalize cannabis we should decriminalize cannabis (stop arresting people for cannabis) treat it like the food that it is and allow people to be healthy and well. Read the science, science always wins!
