Why is CBD Important?

December 5, 2019GuidesNo Comments »

CBD otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is one of the most important therapeutic agents that we have to date!! CBD is a non-psychoactive substance, meaning you do not achieve a typical “high” when administered. While things such as pharmaceutical drugs work at the “symptom” level, CBD effects entire body “systems”, yielding a cascading effect of positive benefits. Though CBD was first discovered in 1940, we didn’t begin to realize the entirety of its positive effects on the human body until 1992 when the Endocannabinoid system was discovered by Dr. Rafael Mechoulam. Since then, the amount of anecdotal and clinical evidence for the effectiveness of CBD is ever mounting. The medicinal and therapeutic benefits of CBD are so undeniable, that the sale and consumption of Cannabidiol is now legal in all 50 States.

As humans, we all have an Endocannabinoid System. The system is composed of groupings of receptors on cells throughout several locations throughout our bodies. These receptors are specifically responsive to Cannabinol and aid in achieving balance or “homeostasis” within our bodies. CBD has been shown to affect and modulate the transcription of over 1000 genes, which are responsible for producing signaling molecules such as hormones, proteins, and cytokines. These receptors have been found throughout several systems including our:

  • Central Nervous System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Bone Marrow
  • Lymph Organs – Intestines, Spleen, and Bladder
  • Lymph System

Matter of fact, researchers have recently identified that we have more networks of cells with receptors for CBD than any other type of receptor. If our biology can tell us anything, it is obvious that Cannabidiol is an extremely important compound for human development and prosperity.

One of the most important functions of CBD is that it combats inflammation. It does so by increasing beneficial anti-inflammatory molecules while simultaneously decreasing detrimental inflammatory molecules. Inflammation is unavoidable for the vast majority of Americans and is mostly caused by things such as:

  1. Environmental Factors – i.e: Heavy metals, air and water pollutants, pesticides, and herbicides.
  2. Inflammatory Diet – i.e: Standard American diet including processed foods and sugar.
  3. Chronic Biological Infections – i.e: Bacteria, viruses, fungus, and molds.

Due to Cannabindol’s immense effect on achieving balance within the human body and ability to combat inflammation. Positive and therapeutic benefits have been shown clinically in two primary systems with further growing evidence and anecdotal reports. Due to CBD’s effect on “systems” not “symptoms”, its positive effects are usually vast and more encompassing. So far therapeutic benefit has been demonstrated for:

  1. Immune Inflammation:
    – Autoimmune Diseases
    – Rheumatoid Arthritis
    – Irritable Bowel Syndrome
    – Lupus/Thyroid Issues
    – Fibromyalgia/Multiple Sclerosis

    – Anxiety
    – Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
