It is now legal in all states and some countries. The rise of cbd can be attributed to a few main factors. The passing of the Farm Bill in 2016 as stated and the discord with big pharmaceuticals with their increasing greed.

What Are The Many Benefits Of Regular CBD Use?
Reduces Inflammation and helps with autoimmunity
CBD is among the best for pain associated conditions and inflammatory conditions. More also, CBD may limit or stop Th2 and Th1 dominance. It is a test of asthma treatment both for Th2 and Th1 as the various reactions are minimized by treatment by CBD. It is one of the best anti inflammatory agents on the market currently,with little to no side affects. Chronic inflammation or CID is the root cause of most common diseases.
Let’s look at the Government’s own patent on CBD:
“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new-found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemis, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH3, and COCH3.”
That’s right CBD is a potent antioxidant!!! It only makes sense that it would benefit those suffering from CID.
Protects Against Neurodegenerative Diseases
CBD has been shown to prevent the harmful impacts of extreme oxygen types and neurotransmitters present in the brain, thus preventing the death of brain cells. CBD is also showing greater results on antioxidant activity then that of vitamin E and vitamin C. A lot of peer review studies have started to show CBD for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease are having extremely good results. Likewise, it may end up protecting the brain, especially in cases where there is the minimization of blood flow. It basically fights free radicals and oxidation within our bodies.
Anxiety and Stress Relieve
This is a big one. CBD helps with stress and anxiety. If you suffer from anxiety, you are not alone, according to the National Institute of Mental Health:
- 19.% of US adults had an anxiety disorder in the past year
- 23.4% female’s vs 14.3% males
- 31.9% of adolescents had an anxiety disorder
- 22.8 % of adults with anxiety disorders had a serious impairment.
What seems to be a common sign in people with anxiety and even P.T.S.D. is that they have increased levels of CB1 receptors,but decreased levels of endocannabinoids. Taking CBD helps to increase one’s own production of endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids bind to the receptors, and the appearance of PTSD-like behaviors and anxiety is decreased.
Better Skin Through CBD
If your skin is damaged or irritated, your body’s natural endocannabinoids are there to help. When you apply a CBD infused cream or oil onto your skin it is believed to possibly interact with these receptors in a localized area.
There’s a scientific reason why CBD is growing in popularity. It has to do with our body’s natural cannabinoid receptors. It turns out that cannabinoid receptors play a host of vital roles within our body. Found in nerve tissue, lung, liver, intestine, kidney, lymphatic tissue, and the spleen, the CB1 and CB2 receptors play roles in our immune system and blood formation functions. Other processes they control include cognition, memory, anxiety, motor behavior, sensory, autonomic and neuroendocrine responses, Glucose metabolism and insulin resistance, inflammatory effects, control of the vomiting reflex, nausea, hunger, and appetite control. This system is also responsible for the pleasure we get from exercise.
Made For CBD
The human body possesses specific binding sites on the surface of many cell types for cannabinoids, and our body produces several endocannabinoids that bind to these cannabinoid receptors and activate them. Together they constitute the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays a major role in the body’s response to pain and injury.
If you do not fully understand all the scientific research and things behind CBD, that is alright. Our bodies are built for CBD. By adding CBD to your daily regimen it is helping you to gain hemostatis or balance.
Give it a try today. Your body will thank you for it.
