CBD an abbreviation of its full name ‘Cannabidiol’ is used for multiple applications involving the human (or animal) body – both physical and mental. According to a recent study in the European Journal of Internal Medicine

Cannabis, or marijuana, may improve a variety of cancer-related symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, sleep disorders, pain, anxiety, and depression, conclude the authors of a 2960-patient observational study from Israel.

CBD is just one of the 100+ elements (known as cannabinoids) of the cannabis sativa plant, the other main element being THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is what makes cannabis in effect illegal throughout the world, owing to its psychotropic effects which causes the ‘high’ amongst cannabis users.

CBD is known as ‘the good guy’ as it seems to be wholly beneficial without any of the drawbacks of the THC. Indeed, for CBD products to be sold legally they must have less than 0.3% THC element and produced from the industrial hemp plant – NOT the marijuana plant.

It is believed that the Phyto-cannabinoid system of the cannabis plant works with the endocannabinoid system throughout the human body, which has cb1 and cb2 receptors, CBD is able to bring about a natural healing process – the full extent of which is still being studied by the medical profession.

The CB1 receptors mainly control the central nervous system, whilst the CB2 receptors mainly control the immune system, appetite, wound healing, and the gastrointestinal system.


Hemp Oil For Pain Management

Amongst the many uses for CBD oil is the treatment of chronic pain. Medical practitioners believe that CBD interacts with the receptors in your brain and immune system, creating anti-inflammatory and painkilling effects that control pain management in the body. This makes CBD hemp oil an attractive natural option for anyone suffering from pain such as…

  • Chronic back pain
  • Pain from IBS or Crohne’s disease
  • Arthritis Pain (Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Physical trauma pain
  • Sciatica pain management

This is of course a short-list of pain sources that afflict the human body. The anti-inflammatory qualities of CBD oil (taken either orally or as a salve to be rubbed into the area externally) also add to the whole pain management system.

CBD Oil For Disease Control

After years of denying the curative properties of cannabis oil or hemp oil, it seems that the medical establishment is finally coming to terms with the massive anecdotal evidence that points to the fact that CBD does indeed hemp heal or cure the human body.

Medical universities are producing papers with the positive results they are having with CBD oil tested on a number of subjects and diseases.

The headline grabber is of course ‘CBD cures cancer’ or ‘leukaemia cured by CBD oil’ Yet the fact remains that as controversial as these headlines may seem, there are thousands of personal testimonies that would agree with the.

Rick Simpsons ‘run from the cure’ video is largely credited with boosting public awareness to the ‘miraculous’ powers of cannabis oil (He did use actual cannabis plants rich in THC for his trials). But many others have had similar success against all types of cancers and other sickness such the ones listed below…

Tests are still being carried out in medical facilities and universities on a global scale to ascertain the healing potential of CBD against these and other diseases to numerous to list. However, many individuals who perhaps do not have the luxury of time on their side, are taking matters into their own hands and trying it for themselves – sometimes with truly amazing results!

Full Spectrum CBD Oil

For the sake of clarity it should be emphasised here that the CBD oil we are discussing is the ‘full spectrum’ CBD oil, which is extracted from the whole plant, and not the hemp seed oil which is extracted from the seeds only of the industrial hemp plant.

Hemp seed oil carries none of the cannabinoids essential for the purposes discussed in this document. More information as to the difference between hemp oil and hemp seed oil.

Recent tests carried out my eminent Israeli scientists at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical School, have discovered that the ‘full spectrum’ hemp oil is far more efficacious overall than the CBD Isolate.

The tests concluded that the full spectrum CBD in conjunction with all the other cannabinoids and terpenes, resulted in a longer lasting and more effective treatment.
