Can CBD help us ?

CBD Blog

As a holistic therapist I often get asked about CBD oil.

This feels a big subject to answer and I always try to come from my own personal experience when answering and to the best of my knowledge.

Personally, I have used CBD oil, I have hemp CBD Capsules that I use daily or at least when I remember! This has helped me with stress, anxiety and other symptoms related to the peri-menopause.

I have given my dogs CBD oil for the last five years at least, and I really think it has made a big difference in fighting of cancer, increased energy and movement and keep them well.


From my understanding CBD works naturally with our body system to create balance where it is needed, heal our bodies and block pain.

I read a while ago that Cannabis finds the rogue cells we don’t want in our body and suffocates them from oxygen, so they die, which is why I have always had the belief that CBD in whatever form kills cancer.


I have done a little research for my blog to help me get the information as correct as I can, I am sure some of you may be able to add to this information


The basic information on CBD


Researchers are still learning about the impact on our body although been around for thousands of years.

What is it?

CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol found in marijuana and hemp, it is a naturally occurring substance and used in lots of products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm

Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is another compound found in the cannabis plant that makes you feel high as is psychoactive.

Full-spectrum CBD still shouldn't cause you to feel “high.” though, this depends on the product's potency and your dosage.


The plant Cannabis sativa has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but there's a much higher percentage in hemp, which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of THC compared to marijuana.


When people talk about hemp oil, they're referring to oil extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. There are no cannabinoids—CBD or THC—in hemp oil. This ingredient is packed with healthy fats and often appears in beauty products for its moisturising benefits.


CBD oil is considered to be a medicine in the UK

The UK has permitted CBD oil sale as a ‘nutritional supplement’ for a while now. However, recently CBD oil was reclassified to be a “medicine.” So, the British government has started to recognise the many health benefits of CBD products like CBD oil.


Research

Our CB2 receptors.

Our CB2 receptors are in the peripheral nervous system, influencing pain, and inflammation.

CBD influences (activates) our cannabinoid receptors in some way, the enzymes break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids look to bind with receptors.


Turns your frown upside down

cannabis binds to the receptors in your brain that promote anandamide, making it a great antidepressant. (chocolate does this to)


Cannabis & Cancer

Cannabis has shown promising results with its ability to kill cancer. It has been shown to treat not just the symptoms of chemotherapy that most people think of, like vomiting or loss of appetite, but it actually treats the cancer symptoms.


It can control pain not just of cancer but of cancer meds. It has shown potential to kill the cancer cells themselves. It's not yet on the market as an FDA approved or internationally approved medication, but cannabis can kill one of the biggest health concerns in the world and soon enough, it just might be a simple prescription.
