The complete CBD guide Part 2

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a powerful natural chemical

RELIEVES PAIN

Studies suggest that cannabinoids may be a new class of drugs for the treatment of chronic pain. Cannabidiol, especially in combination with THC, has shown promising results in the treatment of postoperative pain, chronic pain associated with multiple sclerosis, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and neuropathic pain. We have cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, but the first type - CB1 - is very dense in the pain pathways of the brain, spine, and nerves. The second type - CB2 - is more important for the immune system, but is also involved in inflammation. By acting gently on both pathways, our internal cannabinoids and CBD can balance pain and inflammation.

BENEFICIAL FOR RHEUMATOID POLYARTHRITIS

Because of its anti-inflammatory effect, CBD can relieve joint pain and swelling - and decrease joint destruction and the progression of the disease. CBD produces significant improvements in the intensity of pain when moving and resting, the quality of sleep and inflammation. No serious side effects have been observed. The administration of CBD protected the joints from severe damage, decreased progression, and produced an improvement in arthritis in dogs.

RELIEVES THE NAUSEA AND INCREASES THE APPETITE

CBD oil helps reduce food sensitivities and, according to the National Cancer Institute, CBD increases appetite by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body. Low dose CBD decreases nausea and vomiting produced by toxic drugs. For cancer patients, a balanced combination of THC and CBD may be the best option for increasing appetite and reducing nausea. THC high is usually too strong, and CBD can help reduce these psychotropic effects but does not reduce

REDUCING THE INCIDENCE OF DIABETES

Cannabidiol can inhibit and delay the destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic cells and the production of inflammatory cytokines in diabetics. One study of 4,657 adult men and women found that current marijuana use was associated with a 16% drop in fasting insulin levels and a reduction in waist circumference, a factor linked to diabetes. Researchers say CBD works by inhibiting and delaying insulin. These data reinforce the hypothesis that CBD, which is known to be safe for humans, may be used as a therapeutic agent for the treatment of type 1 diabetes at an early stage of the disease.

IMPROVED HEART HEALTH

Studies show that CBD reduces heart rate and blood pressure in response to anxiety or stressful situations. CBD has also influenced white blood cell function and platelet aggregation. It is even found to be therapeutic in cases of stroke. Several preclinical studies have also proven beneficial effects of CBD in a range of disorders of the cardiovascular system.

CBD decreases cardiovascular stress response after a single dose of CBD (600 mg) However, more work is needed to prove the ability of CBD to prevent the development of heart and vascular disorders in humans.

PROMOTES BONE GROWTH

Although much less known, our bones also have little-studied cannabinoid receptors. CBD could improve the healing of broken limbs in mice. The CB1 receptor regulates maximum bone mass through the effects of osteoclasts, bone resorption, and age-related bone loss. This means that the CBD administered helped strengthen the fracture callus, the cartilage that regulates the fracture. The CB1 receptor is therefore unique in that it regulates maximum bone mass by an effect on osteoclastic activity, but protects against age-related bone loss by regulating bone cells. CBD and THC have been tested, but only the CDB-activated genetic pathways that also increase the structure of collagen.

TREAT DEPRESSION

Studies have shown that the anti-depressant effects of CBD are fast, continuous over time, and comparable to that of a common tricyclic drug, imipramine, also known as Tofranil. CBD could also be useful for treating psychiatric conditions involved in impaired coping mechanisms, such as depression.

TREATMENT OF INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES

Studies show that CBD may be a good candidate for normalizing bowel motility in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. The combination of CBD and THC can reduce inflammation and relieve symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. CBD can reduce the severity of intestinal inflammation by activating the gamma receptor. This activated by proliferative peroxisomes (PPAR-gamma).

PROTECTION AGAINST BACTERIA

The CBD has shown some antimicrobial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a bacteria that causes infections that are difficult to treat.

CANNABIDIOL CAN PROTECT AGAINST MAD COW DISEASE

Studies show that cannabidiol inhibits prions, the proteins that cause fatal neurodegenerative diseases like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and mad cow disease. In the study, the survival time in mice increased by several weeks.

REDUCES DYSKINESIA

CBD (combined with a TRPV-1 blocker) reduced symptoms of dyskinesia in mice. CBD reduces the production of inflammatory markers. Dyskinesia causes involuntary movements. Compared to the benchmark, CBD decreased the amounts of key enzymes that cause dyskinesia. CBD, combined with a TRPV-1 antagonist, reduces dyskinesia by acting on the gamma CB1 and PPAR receptors. In short, CBD reduces the expression of the inflammatory markers COX-2 and NF-kB.

HELP IN THE TREATMENT OF INSOMNIA

Research suggests that taking CBD before bed improves sleep in people with insomnia. It could help sleep thanks to its relaxing and anxiolytic effects.

CBD seems to have benefits over THC, which can worsen sleep quality in the long run. Cannabis users with insomnia prefer much higher strains of CBD as a sleep aid and are less likely to become addicted.

TREATMENT OF ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRINKING DISORDERS

Studies suggest that CBD may be therapeutic for alcohol and other drug use disorders. CBD is effective against mental and psychological health disorders, including "harmful" addiction. Drinking lots of alcohol for many years causes alcoholic liver problems by constantly elevating levels of inflammation. Alcohol abuse is about drinking too often. Addiction is the inability to stop drinking. In most cases, addicts end up consuming more alcohol throughout their lives. So it seems that cannabis (and CBD) only partially protects. The more you drink, the less cannabis can help. The anti-inflammatory properties of THC and CBD predict that cannabis use could reduce the inflammation caused by alcohol, and therefore help prevent the development of the liver disease.

HELP STOP SMOKING

Research suggests that inhaling cannabidiol for a week could reduce the number of cigarettes smoked by about 40%, without increasing the need for nicotine. The CBD is so effective in quitting smoking that many online communities offer advice and recommend its use. CBD is polypharmacological. Which means it can affect multiple and different pathways in the body at the same time. The main receptors are involved in stopping smoking, and this can be considered brutal. And, of course, CBD will present itself as the perfect candidate as a palliative for nicotine and therefore for cigarettes.

PLAY A ROLE IN PSORIASIS

CBD reduces the growth of skin cells (keratinocytes), playing a potential role in the treatment of psoriasis. There are several independent studies, conducted by third parties, that have shown that CBD-infused topicals can help relieve the itching, swelling, and redness associated with eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions. Research has repeatedly shown that CBD oil can help many skin conditions.

CAN TREAT ACNE

CBD decreases lipid synthesis and the proliferation of human sebaceous glands and has an anti-inflammatory effect on sebaceous glands, thus having potential as a therapeutic agent in the treatment of acne. CBD thus effectively controls potential breakouts.

DOSAGE AND SIDE EFFECTS

CBD is generally well tolerated and safe at high doses, and its use is chronic in humans; however, large doses of CBD can mimic serotonin, which appears to increase the psychoactive effects of THC. And at very high doses, CBD can cause anxiety (via activation of TRPV1 receptors). The dose of CBD can vary from 100 mg to 3 g per day, depending on the targeted health problem. 150 mg of CBD oil and twice a day relieves anxiety and inflammation. To protect the brain (as in Alzheimer's disease) and reduce inflammation and muscle contractions (SP), doses of 100 to 600 mg of CBD have been used in clinical studies. 300 mg per day was enough to reduce anxiety in clinical studies. But above 400 mg, CBD becomes less effective for anxiety but better for pain relief.

Doses of up to 800 mg of CBD per day have been used to treat psychosis and schizophrenia. The highest doses of CBD used in the studies were up to 3.5 g of CBD oil per day for very severe seizures in children and young adults with epilepsy.

without undergoing any side effects such as combustion: the product is isolated and its effects are therefore more intense.
