As i spent my morning studyinh CBD oil and i said id let you all know so here is what i learned.
Most people have heard of a chemical called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. But recently, attention has shifted to another compound, called CBD, and has been causing quite a buzz among medical and scientific community, and for good reason as CBD oil extracted from the cannabis plant is being hailed as the “super healer” of our time.
WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL?
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in both cannabis and industrial hemp. It is present in both plants although the prevalence or total composition of CBD can vary greatly from strain to strain.
Unlike THC (the other prevalent cannabinoid), Cannabidiol is non-psychoactive while having the potential to possess a variety of therapeutic properties for many medical conditions including cancer, epilepsy, anxiety, pain and many others. THC and CBD have an inverse relationship, the more CBD, the less THC and the reverse also holds true. Scientific and clinical studies continue to underscore CBD’s potential as a possible treatment for a wide range of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
CBD works well for such a wide variety health challenges because it enhances your Endocannabinoid system. This is the system within your body which regulates proper functioning of your cells,and so much more!
It is applied to the skin either as a rub, vaped or ingested as drops under the tongue and it tastes very bitter ! I actually took some to research the topic and its effects. There are hundreds of online suppliers and CBD oil shops are springing up everywhere, the oil is captivating the publics interest and for very good reason.
My college is offering a course on CBD oil so i may look into it and learn as much as i can but my priority is to get my qualification first then expand on that.
