I've been an online health writer for several years and have found CBD to be a beneficial tool in my every day life.

Good medicine is about treating people, not conditions. Since CBD is a very personalized supplement, it's worth taking into consideration as a serious treatment option. If you choose to try CBD, you must find the right amount and the right brand that will work best for the condition that you want to reverse.

I love playing CBD messenger. Check out the conditions it can help with and find out why you should be taking it whether you are healthy or not.

Conditions CBD Can Help With

  1. Anxiety
  2. Autism
  3. Autoimmune conditions
  4. C****r
  5. Cardiovascular problems
  6. Chronic pain and "Cells on Fire"
  7. Type II "D"
  8. Neuro degenerate diseases
  9. Insomnia
  10. Seizures
  11. CBD prevents premature aging

1. Anxiety

CBD inhibits enzymes that cause the release of chemicals that help maintain a healthy biochemical balance. This produces more long-term feelings of contentment.

2. Autism

CBD balances neurotransmitters, which are imbalanced in people with autism. It also helps to regulate and reduce gut inflammation and stress hormones. CBD balances Neurotransmitters and helps with inflammation in the gut by stopping over-firing nerves.

3. Autoimmune Conditions

CBD can help with several immune system imbalances and medical conditions, these include, imbalances in the immune system, imbalances in the Thyroid, autoimmune conditions such as when the body attacks the brain and nervous system, or when the body is attacking the colon, or when it attacks its own skin or joints. All of these conditions are due to imbalances in the immune system, which causes the body to start attacking itself. CBD has been proven to help regulate this system.

4. The Big "C"

Studies showed CBD caused cell death in c++++r cells, while leaving healthy cells unaffected. While the studies are preliminary, research scientists are excited by this finding and, as marijuana laws loosen, in the future more exciting studies are likely to take place that may reinforce these findings.

5. Cardiovascular Problems

Many cardiovascular problems are the result of more cells under fire. CBD can protect the vascular walls in a high heated environment. It's ability to reduce this condition has been well-known for over a decade.

6. Chronic Pain and Heating of Cells

Deep down, all pain starts with the heating up of cells, this condition irritates the nerve receptors. CBD regulates the immune system, so it reduces this chronic condition.

7. Type II "D"

CBD lowers blood sugar levels, thus preventing nerve damage. While you can't suddenly stop eating a healthy diet, CBD will help your body regulate blood sugar without any major side effects.

8. Neuro Degenerate Diseases

Many studies have shown that CBD helps prevent free radicals from damaging the cells in your brain. CBD protects the nerves and has an antioxidant effect.

9. Insomnia

Imbalances in the sympathetic nervous system, also known as the fight or flight response system, can be aided by CBD. This kind of imbalance results in overstimulation, causing the body to be incapable of calming down. CBD can help you relax and get a full night's sleep.

10. Seizures

CBD has a great anti-seizure affect. It has been used as anti-convulsant for years. CBD has been shown to work on people of all ages who suffer from seizures and other convulsant disorders.

11. CBD Prevents Premature Aging

CBD prevents premature aging. CBD is proven to have anti-oxidant affects. This means it can helps stop free radicals from killing cells. Free radicals are any atom or molecule with an unpaired electron. Unregulated free radical activity is a primary cause of cell destruction. Cell heating is the body’s way of initiating healing responses. However, the heated condition left unregulated can result in excessive free radical activity and tissue destruction.

"Cell heating" is the root cause of all ailments. CBD can prevent cells from overheating and imbalances from taking place and developing into all sorts of painful conditions. Consider taking CBD as a supplement to keep the body in balance before serious conditions occur.

What to Look for When Purchasing CBD

There are all kinds of CBD products, but be careful which one you choose, because they are not all made the same. You don't want to use low resin industrial hemp. This raises the risk of contamination. Make sure you know what to keep in mind when you are shopping for CBD.

Use CBD oil that is free from:

  • Solvent residues
  • Pesticides
  • Molds
  • Contaminants

A quality CBD doesn't have:

  • Propylene glycol
  • Corn syrup
  • Preservatives
  • Artificial additives
  • Trans fats

NOTE: The CBD must be verified "clean," if used for medicinal purposes.

The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana

Hemp is not the same as the high THC marijuana you often buy at a dispensary. Hemp refers to the variety of cannabis that has been bred to produce fiber which is to be used in clothing and other materials, including oils, lotions, seeds, and other foods. Hemp contains very low levels of the psychoactive compound THC.

On the other hand, Marijuana is the variety of Cannabis sativa that has been bred for its medical or psychoactive effects. This is the cannabis plant that produces those flowers laden with sticky, dense buds. Where hemp is used for fuel and fiber, marijuana is used to get you high or to treat specific physical or psychological ailments.

What Are Cannabinoids?

A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, a molecule in the cannabis plant. CBD is a very potent neuroprotectant and anti-oxidant. It has the ability to reduce the damaging affects of free radicals. It has even been proven to trigger neurogenesis (the growth of new brain cells).

Properties of CBD include:

Anti-tumoral properties

Anti-convulsive properties

Anti-spasmodic properties

Anti-addictive properties

Antibiotic properties

Antidepressant properties

Antipsychotic properties

Anxiolytic properties (anti anxiety)

Anti-analgesic properties (anti-pain)
