CBD Oil For Cancer, Seizures, Mental Health, And So Much More

 

 

Just for the record we are going to be talking about cannabidiol oil. (CBD).
It is NON- psychoactive meaning
IT WILL NOT GET YOU HIGH, EVER, non- addictive, and 100 percent legal.

As researchers continue to study CBD, more and more benefits of this
cannabinoid are being discovered. A lot of these studies are very impressive.
Just a fraction of these studies will be placed through out this article, please look into them.

Many people are starting to take note on this particular cannabinoid
that comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant. There are a number of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant
but the two most widely known
are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannbinol. (THC)
The effects these two cannabinoids produce couldn’t be more different.
THC is the main psychoactive part of the cannabis plant.
CBD actually works to counteract the psychoactive effects.
CBD “opposes” the action of THC.  Both CBD and THC work in the endocannabinoid system but,

quite differently. More about the endocannabinoid system after we find out what CBD is.

What is CBD?

CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol is a compound of the Cannabis sativa plant.
It has numerous medical benefits!
It has been reported that there are over 100 cannabiniods in the Cannabis sativa plant and cannabidiol,
a major phyto-cannabinoid  accounts  for up to 40 percent of the plants extract.
It is known to be an  anti-psychotic compound.
CBD is a dietary supplement that is quickly increasing in popularity for it’s many health promoting properties and nutrients.
Since gaining popularity it is being found in many quality health stores.
It has been safely consumed by pets, kids and adults, but as always, check with your family physician first.
Many pet owners are using CBD oil for their pets with tremendous results in regards to seizures, cancer, and separation anxiety.
In the pet world, particularily cats and dogs, CBD oil and cancer seems to be a rising topic that is only gaining popularity.
Something worth looking into.

 

What Do Cannabinoids Have to Do With Our Endocannabinoid System?

To understand more about cannabinoids and how they work in our body we must first take a look at the endocannabinoid system. This system is a biological system made of endocannabinoids, enzymes, and receptor sites and helps to regulate a number of physiological and cognitive processes such as appetite, pain-sensation, memory, moods,and fertility.

Endocannabinoids are naturally produced in our body and they have phyto-cannabinoid like compounds that are used to stimulate cannabinoid receptors.  Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found all through out our body in places like our brain, glands, immune cells, organs, and connective tissues.  This system performs different tasks in each tissue but always with the same goal, homeostasis in which it helps to maintain a stable internal enviroment inspite of all the changes in the external enviroment.

The endocannabinoid system includes 2 main types of receptors that bind to cannabinoids CB1 and CB2.  CBD (cannabidiol) does not fit into either one of these receptors very well but instead it stimulates activity in these 2 receptors without binding to them like THC does. CBD is capable of minimizing activation of certain receptors that can be activated by THC, thereby counteracting the psychoactive effects of THC. It activates neurotransmitter receptors like the  5-HT1A serotonin, along with other receptors such as  vanilloid, adenosine, and TRPV1. These receptors play a role in mediating your body temperature, moods, inflammation, immune system, and pain sensation.

CBD Helps With: 

Migraines- I have witnessed first hand how CBD oil has helped someone with a chronic migraine.
This person had the migraine for 4 months, and at times it became an occular migraine.
One day she decided to try CBD oil after hearing what is does for pain.
After she took a dose, 10 minutes didn’t even go by and she said that the migraine was completely gone
and that she actually felt great.  I know this is a true story because I was right there when it happened.

 Inflammation- Another person I know personally who has suffered with chronic pain and inflammation issues for many years
started to take CBD oil to see what it could do for her.
Within 1-2 days she reported that she felt a lot better and was able to function without all the pain. People with arthritis, neuropathy, and back pain have used CBD oil with very good results and have been able to avoid strong pharmaceuticals that have dangerous side effects.

See studies #1, #2, #3, #4, #5,

Seizures-  It seemed to turn a few heads when it was discovered that CBD can cause a drastic reduction in seizures and in some cases stop them altogether!  The non-psychoactive CBD oil is helping children and adults alike
get off of the psychoactive pharmaceutical drugs they are on that have failed in stopping the seizures!
See this study
 and this study, and See this study

If you or a loved one have epilepsy, please watch this incredible video showing CBD’s powerful properties when it comes to seizures.

 

 

Mental Health-  CBD is becoming ever more popular when people testify how it helped them get off drugs for anxiety, depression, PTSD, and ADHD.  I can testify personally how CBD has helped me when dealing with severe anxiety and social anxiety.  I took about 25mg. full spectrum CBD oil under the tongue and held it there for about 30 seconds then swallowed.  I kid you not, in about 20 minutes, anxiety was near gone and I stayed calm the rest of the day.  See these studies, #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8

Auto Immune- This seems to be another area where this impressive oil shines ( no pun intended )  🙂  CBD plays a big role  in reducing inflammation, a major contributor to auto immune diseases.  When dealing with an auto immune disease I wouldn’t hesitate to take something that is not a pharmaceutical that has the ability to reduce or eliminate inflammation.

Inflammation-  Cannabidiol has a special way of interacting with our unique endocannabinoid system and research is encouraging  when it comes to therapeutic applications with regards to inflammation.   Let these studies speak for themselves.  Study #1, study #2, study #3, and study#4

Insomnia- Many including myself can testify to CBD’s  powerful ability to combat insomnia.  I remember not to long ago I suffered a severe panic attack just before going to bed.  I am familiar enough with panic attacks to know that I would not get sleep any time soon. I have had many a night when all I could do is lay in bed and my mind was racing, my heart was  pounding because I was so wound up.  I don’t know about you, but a true blue panic attack is one of the most frightening things I have experienced. I tried having my husband give me a back massage and it didn’t do anything. I ended up taking about 25mg. Full Spectrum CBD sublingually under my tongue and in about 30 minutes not only was I fast asleep but I slept solid until my alarm went off ( my 3 chihuahuas ) at 7 am.  🙂  I did not feel groggy whatsoever.   See these studies #1, #2, #3, #4

Cancer- There are studies being done on CBD’s role in preventing cancer cell growth and they look very encouraging. Cbd’s ability to moderate inflammation and change how cells reproduce is also looking quite impressive.  What about “apoptosis” aka programmed cell death?  Other research has unveiled that the main job of cannabidiol in the cancer cell is to disrupt the endoplasmic reticulum by destroying the calcium metabolism thereby pushing calcium into the cytosol, this results in cell death every time. Another way CBD causes cell death is by using caspase a protease enzyme to break down the proteins and peptides in the cell.  The cell can’t survive when this takes place. Both of these processes of cell death are specific to cancer cells only and not normal cells. See this study here.  A few more studies herehere, here, here, here, herehere, herehere ,here, and here  🙂  I could practically fill this article on CBD studies that’s how many there are.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ********There is much controversy on CBD vs. THC for helping in the fight against cancer. Here’s the bottom line, Yes, THC has also proven to be a powerful tool in the fight against cancer but not everyone wants to be “stoned” every waking minute while they are trying to heal and it’s not legal to obtain in most states and making the oil is not for the novice.  So, for many, the THC route is not even an option.  What to do?  That’s where CBD comes in.  If you are second guessing CBD’s role in fighting cancer then you haven’t read the studies. There are way more studies than listed in this article, but after reading these studies you will see for yourself CBD is a powerful adjunct when fighting cancer.***********

I have heard some powerful testimonials on CBD and cancer but add to that countless STUDIES regarding CBD and cancer and it should raise some eyebrows.  It doesn’t stop there.  What do most cancer patients have in common?  Anxiety and depression. This is also where CBD shines.  Just getting depression and anxiety (negative emotions) under control will go a long way in tackling cancer. Another thing that is powerful for negative emotions is prayer.

What To Look For When Choosing A Quality CBD Product

 

Quality, potency , and extraction method is everything when choosing a CBD oil to use.

Whether using CBD for health maintenance or health challenges, don’t mess around with just any CBD oil, get high quality and high potency, yes it will cost more because this is a great example of “you will get what you pay for”.  We are talking about your health here.
I have spent countless hours researching what is out there.
I found this one to be of exceptional quality, the best and strongest one on the market to date. I believe this is the gold standard when it comes to high potency full spectrum CBD oil. Those that know me know how VERY picky I am about product. If I use something it has got to WOW me, meaning that it actually does what it says it will do and it is high quality and priced fairly.

What also impressed me is the customer service. Jonah, the owner of this company knows his stuff, you have a question, he will answer it and he was very patient and polite with my many questions. 🙂 They have a lot of educational resources on their website, it is treasure trove of information.  Right down my alley.  I love to know EVERYTHING about the product I am going to put into my body.  They offer several different potencies of the sublingual full spectrum hemp oil extract with CBD and many other different hemp products, but what turned my head was exactly what I was looking for, the strongest potency of CBD I have ever seen in the industry.  Are you ready? They carry a product with a whopping 7,000 mg. of CBD per 30 ml. bottle!!!!!!!! That’s almost 12mg. of CBD per drop! There is 25% total cannabinoids in this tincture and I thought their 3000mg. was strong!  Another thing, many CBD oils out there claim to be full spectrum but only from the stalk of the plant, this CBD oil is full spectrum from the whole plant. I was looking for something strong and that’s exactly what I found. Ok, so it’s strong, but what about quality? This is pharmaceutical grade A hemp oil from the Sativa L strain that is grown under the DOA Pilot Program and derived by using WHOLE hemp plant extract by CO2 extraction and then dissolved in MCT oil.  It is a complete WHOLE plant extract with terpenes, flavonoids, and over 40 trace elements for maximum health benefits to create the entourage effect.

We have worked with Jonah to be able to get our website readers a discount on their CBD products.  Use the coupon code :  WELLNESSTWINS10  to save 10 percent off any and all purchases, this is not a one time use but every time you place any order now and in the future as long as you use the coupon code.  🙂  Click here to find out more about these high end CBD products and if you decide to try any of them, save money by using the coupon code mentioned above at checkout.

***Note*** I have found that for me personally when treating migraines, menstrual cramps, and anxiety that 3,000 mg will more than suffice.  If you are battling cancer you may want to talk with your doctor and inquire about adding the 7,000 mg CBD to your cancer fighting protocol.  There are many studies about its use in the fight against cancer but always check with your doctor first.
