Why are so many people getting positive results with CBD with low or no THC?
Because they find it helps with sleep, stress, pain, anxiety and overall feelings of wellbeing.
These are super important lifestyle challenges that can make or break your day…..or your night. We all know we must sleep, but over 50% of Americans experience pain that keeps them from a sound and restorative sleep.
Many people are using CBD for a variety of reasons these days, in different forms and at various strengths. Because of the broad ‘well-being’ affects, it has become an important part of a health and wellness routine. Physicians and nutritional consultants are also beginning to embrace these wellness solutions for their patients due to the high demand and positive results experienced.
Dispelling CBD myths:
CBD (Canna-Bi-Diol) is LEGAL in all 50 states.
CBD won’t get you high. There’s no THC in the Isolate form of CBD (the psycho active component)
CBD is NOT medical marijuana
You can’t FAIL A DRUG test while using the ISOLATE form of CBD.
Powerful ANTIOXIDANT & ANTI-INFLAMMATORY that works throughout your whole system
Supports a deep and regenerative sleep, and can help reduce pain meds
Support pain relief, anxiety symptoms and mood
Supports PMS symptom relief
Some prefer to take Full Spectrum form of CBD which can contain up to .3% of THC; the psychoactive component. Many find relief without the THC component in the Isolate form of CBD or ‘Cannabidiol’. Even without THC, CBD supports the Endocannabinoid system throughout your body. This system is often referred to as ‘ECS’. Please read on to learn more about why it affects so many functions.
Please understand that there is no 'high' when taking CBD oil from hemp; especially in the Isolate form, which is guaranteed to have no THC. THC is the psycho - active component in marijuana that creates the ‘high’. The Isolate form is very safe and can be taken long term at specific doses, preferably under the supervision of a practitioner who has clinical experience. Currently, no drug interactions have been identified but Hemp is metabolized through the liver similar to many medications and herbals.
What is the difference between the Isolate Form and Full Spectrum form?
· Isolate- No THC/ affect the CB1 receptors which are in the Brain + Central Nervous System
· Full Spectrum- can contain up to .3% THC, works on CB1 + CB2 (Immune system) receptors
You may ask ‘how can one herb have such a broad range of effectiveness across so many systems in the body?’ The ECS system (Endocannabinoid) has been around for 600 million years in our evolution and over 1,000 species on the planet have an ECS. We currently know that it regulates and modulates our nervous system and immune system.
This system is so important to our health that according to many scientists and clinicians, it is the main driver for regulating our body’s homeostasis.
What is Homeostasis?
Homeostasis is a very delicate balancing act that our body constantly strives to keep us in balance and in good health. When homeostasis is off kilter, we fall into a “dis-ease” state. Our body constantly communicates and coordinates with the other systems mentioned to keep a “balanced” homeostasis.
Please realize that the ECS can be supported by other nutrients as well as CBD. It comes from two sources - hemp and marijuana. Both sources get the same job done. Marijuana is illegal in most states, or requires a physician prescription, or you can get hemp sourced CBD oil, which is legal in all 50 states.
Cannabinoids have their effects on the body by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and the body that makes up the ECS. When the ECS is malfunctioning due to poor genes and or a deficiency in cannabinoids in the body, a dis-ease state follows, simply because homeostasis is imbalanced.
When there is an imbalance, many symptoms and conditions can present itself.
There are many conditions that may benefit from supporting the ECS:
Seizures, Migraines, Addiction, Multiple sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Gastrointestinal conditions, Arthritis, Insomnia, Anxiety, PTSD, Obsessive compulsive disorder, Depression, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, Autism, Acne, psoriasis, and other skin conditions
A healthy functioning ECS is critical to one’s health.
There are144 cannabinoids that are found in hemp and cannabis, but CBD is responsible for 80% of the medicinal benefits. Therefore, CBD oil is the work horse to getting your nervous system and immune system to function optimally.
What does the Research Say?
There have been over 245 studies in 2017 alone worldwide; showing pain relief and support for sleep + general anxiety.
Currently more than 500 clinical trials at www.clinicaltrials.gov involving hemp cannabinoids are available to review. Fifty of these studies involve pain related to cancer, lower back, acute or chronic pain.
“Current research shows CBD can influence the brain’s anti-anxiety chemicals including GABA and serotonin to reduce occasional stress, improve REM and deep sleep, modulate pain receptor response and decrease inflammation caused by overexertion to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.”
