CBD is fast becoming well-known for its many health benefits. Many people have found CBD oil to help reduce pain, anxiety, and more restful sleep. New research is demonstrating improvement in numerous chronic diseases/conditions and could help to reduce side effects of certain prescription medications.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant. Cannabis is an umbrella term that includes two different varieties of plants "cousins" called marijuana and hemp. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the major component of marijuana which gives people the psychoactive high feeling. The hemp plant is significantly lacking in THC and to be classified as hemp, a cannabis plant must contain less than 0.3% THC by volume. Which is why you can’t experience any high and/or mind-altering effects.
The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. It is literally a bridge between body and mind. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system and play an important part in regulating inflammation. They act like someone stepping on the brakes when inflammation begins. Your ECS regulates how quickly neurotransmitters are being released, slowing them down or speeding them up as necessary to return to and maintain balance.
According to a study published in the June 2012, “Journal of Experimental Medicine”, researchers found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain administered to mice and rats. In a different study from the “European Journal of Pain” showed, using an animal model, CBD applied topically on the skin helped lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis.
Researchers suggest CBD might counteract the hypersensitivity of cells surrounding nerves in people with chronic pain, including those with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender (trigger) points.
A new Michigan Medicine study published in the June 4, 2021 “The Journal of Pain”, the ravages of the opioid epidemic lead many to avoid these powerful painkillers. A significant number of people with fibromyalgia are finding an effective replacement in CBD-containing products. The U-M team found that more than 70% of people with fibromyalgia who used CBD substituted CBD for opioids or other pain medications. Of these participants, many reported that they either decreased use or stopped taking opioids and other pain medications as a result. CBD oil has been so effective in decreasing discomfort/pain, it has been approved in Canada for multiple sclerosis and cancer pain.
Researchers believe that CBD’s ability to act on the endocannabinoid system and other brain signaling systems may provide benefits for those with neurological disorders. In fact, one of the most studied uses for CBD is in treating neurological disorders like epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s.
In one study published in the May 2017, “New England Journal of Medicine”, CBD decreased the frequency of childhood Dravet syndrome seizures by 23 percentage points more than those taking a placebo. Recently the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived pharmaceutical “Epidiolex” which contains CBD for seizure conditions. A study in the 2019, “Journal of Clinical Investigation”, CBD also restored normal brain rhythms, which are commonly impaired in the neurodevelopmental condition Angelman syndrome.
Dr. Robert Carson, an assistant professor of neurology and pediatrics at Vanderbilt University who focuses on children with epilepsy stated, "In children, especially those with autism spectrum disorders, this may manifest as improved interactions with others.”
CBD holds promise for conditions including Alzheimer's disease, cancer, psychosis, and Parkinson's disease. New research published in the 2021, “Journal of Alzheimer's Disease”, CBD helped to restore the function of two proteins key to reducing the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaque, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease, and improved cognition in early onset familial Alzheimer's.
CBD is also commonly used for anxiety, and insomnia. Many studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. CBD has also been shown to reduce levels of stress and anxiety in those suffering from conditions such as PTSD, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. CBD even reduced the stress and discomfort surrounding public speaking.
Although numerous more medical studies are needed to determine the effects of CBD for a variety of health concerns, a World Health Organization report in February 2018 has found no adverse health outcomes or abuse potential from CBD use, but rather several beneficial medical applications.
Quality of CBD products makes a huge difference in experiencing lasting beneficial results!
As many of you know at the Tree of Life Wellness Center, we are very picky about the products we utilize in our practice and our store. We strive to carry products from reputable companies with quality products to achieve the best results.
The bioavailability of tablet and capsule form of many supplements can be drastically reduced. Unfortunately, most traditional oral vitamins and micronutrients lose most of their potency through poor digestion, metabolism and excretion, prior to reaching the intended target cells in our body.
HEMPLETS™ CBD 30mg (Future Pharm) utilizes a highly advanced patent pending liposomal technology to deliver high quality CBD, in a convenient chewable dosage form. It is the only liposomal chewable tablet in the world that has a patent pending liposome platform. Liposomal Technology is an innovative delivery system providing increased absorption and 8 times greater bioavailability for CBD’s active ingredients. As a result, the CBD retains its quality and once the target cells are reached, they are ready to start their action. Thus, you can get higher potency benefits for less money because you don’t need to take more pills!
HEMPLETS™ is designed to deliver a single potent dose of 30 mg CBD that is THC free in an oral tablet form unlike anything else. Liposomes are a protective lipid layer (very specific ‘vesicles’ or bubbles) modified to carry either fat-soluble or water soluble molecules. When the liposome merges with the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane, it can deliver its contents directly to specific cells in the body. Chew 1 or more tablets with 6 oz water between meals or before bed or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. The longer you take CBD the better the effects.
