Some of the reasons people have been able to successfully use cannabis as medicine for multiple health issues is because it contains a compound called Cannabidiol (CBD). This CBD component is responsible for regulating many functions in the body. It seems that a lot of people, even the ones who use cannabis, are not always too familiar with what CBD can do for them to improve their health.
Here are 10 ways that CBD could improve your health:
1) CBD is an antibacterial and slows bacterial growth. This is significant for those who are dealing with an imbalance of bad bacteria which can cause health problems such as gum disease, heart disease, and intestinal issues.
2) When you take CBD, it does not cause the typical “high” associated with cannabis. In fact, CBD works as a partner with THC to balance its psychoactive effects. Peoples experience with high CBD medicines is that they leave me clear-headed, positive, energetic, and relaxed. They describe this state as feeling like themselves.
3) CBD reduces inflammation. Yes that's right CBD reduces inflammation!! Inflammation in the body causes disease. Less inflammation, less disease.
4) CBD promotes bone growth. How many people do you know that have a musculoskeletal deficiency who would benefit from a non-toxic, natural medicine for bone growth?
5) CBD reduces function in the immune system. If you suffer with an autoimmune disorder calming your overactive immune system down is vital for your continuing health. When peoples immune system is overactive all sorts of things happen: migraines, body pain, numb fingers and toes, and so on. Having a medicine that can help me regulate immune function is more valuable than the words can find.
6) CBD relieves anxiety. How interesting is that? CBD allows people to relax and feel like somebody who can handle the regular stresses of life during spells of anxiety.
7) CBD relieves pain. This is by far the most dramatic thing that CBD does. To be able to have relief from the pain that is debilitating you and locking you within your body feels like absolute freedom.
8) CBD suppresses muscles spasms.
9) CBD reduces blood sugar levels. High blood sugar can cause havoc in the body. Ask any person with diabetes and they will tell you that regulating your blood sugar is vital to one’s health and vitality.
10) CBD reduces seizures. People have been able to reduce and in some cases stop the seizures that they experience by using CBD.
11) CBD inhibits cancer cell growth.
We are just scratching the surface here of what CBD can do for the body but that is a pretty impressive list.
