CBD Oil: The Elixir of Health
Now that nearly half the states in the nation have legalized or decriminalized cannabis for medical or recreational use, we have all heard of some of the many health benefits of the cannabis plant. Medicinal use of cannabis can be traced back centuries and continues to be beneficial to our health and wellbeing today. As more and more states embrace medical cannabis it is easier to obtain for private use, but still problematic or embarrassing for some. CBD oil derived from the cannabis plant is legal in all 50 and provides the health benefits without any undesirable psychoactive effects.
What Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol, shortened to CBD, is one of the main active chemical compounds naturally found in the cannabis plant. CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are two cannabinoid components that contribute to the many beneficial medicinal qualities of medical cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive side effects that cause you to feel “high”. While cannabinoids can be found in small amounts in some fruits and vegetables, the cannabis plant has the highest cannabidiol levels found in nature, and CBD oil is the most potent form.
How Does CBD Oil Work?
CBD oil is absorbed into the body orally through Elixicure brand drops, strips, spray, or vape oil. Once the CBD oil is ingested, it interacts with the human Endocannabinoid system, which is part of the immune system. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment. When the immune system is boosted by taking Cannabinoids the body has a better ability to fight, resist, and also cure many diseases common to the human body; this includes both common ailments and more serious chronic diseases.
CBD Now Endorsed by Doctors
Widespread interest in CBD oil has been catalyzed by CNN’s 2013 documentary entitled “Weed” aired on television. CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta documented the story of Charlotte Figi, a young girl suffering from debilitating seizures due to a severe form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome. Gupta showed how CBD treatment dramatically improved Figi’s condition and successfully reduced her seizures when no other medicines would. Charlotte’s story and treatment completely changed Dr. Gupta’s stance on medical cannabis, cannabis, hemp, and he now endorses CBD oil for life-changing medical treatments and its countless positive health benefits.
TV’s Dr. Oz has endorsed CBD and medical cannabis to treat chronic pain in place of prescription opiates. His guest Dr. Devi Nampiaparampil, Interventional Pain Specialist at NYU School of Medicine suggests that pain related to cancer, HIV and AIDS, and Multiple Sclerosis can be more safely and better treated with medical cannabis than traditional pain killers, as well as treating nausea or loss of appetite associated with those diseases.
Can CBD Oil Help Me?
Recent studies have shown CBD oil to have therapeutic potential to help treat many common ailments, including:
- Enhancing Overall Health
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Chronic Pain
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Autoimmune disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- And Others
CBD oil does not contain illegal amounts of THC so it is therefore legal and safe for consumption in all 50 states. CBD oil will not cause you to fail a drug test due to its molecular chemical structure and lack of psychoactive THC.
The many health benefits of CBD oil have been well documented through success stories like Charlotte Figi’s miraculous epilepsy treatment.
In a study of pediatric epilepsy patients who were treated with oral cannabis extracts at Children’s Hospital Colorado, 31 percent of the 58 children tested saw a 50 percent or greater reduction of their seizures.
In an Italian study of 102 patients with MS, treatment with CBD oil is proved to be “a valid answer to some of the unmet needs in MS patients, such as spasticity and other refractory-to-treatment symptoms.”
A January 2016 study shows that CBD induces antidepressant-like effects in the brain and plays a significant role in stress responses.
Anxiety, OCD & PTSD
In an October 2015 study, researchers found that “existing preclinical evidence strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder when administered acutely.”
In a March 2015 study of Schizophrenia and the anti-psychotic effects of cannabidiol (CBD oil) ”have antipsychotic properties, and thus may be a promising new agent in the treatment of schizophrenia.”
