currently to order some and see if we would have noticeable benefits
from it while using it on a daily basis.
The results were
CBD oil is something we definitely recommend everyone
take as part of a preventative health regimen, or as part of a
treatment for certain ailments.
What Exactly is CBD
There are over 500 compounds in the cannabis plant, around 100 are
cannabinoids and over 125 are
terpenes (fragrant oils that give
cannabis its aromatic diversity).
Many of these chemicals have been
discovered to have some sort of therapeutic value. One of those 100+ cannabinoids is cannabidiol.
Interestingly, our bodies
have cannabinoid receptors all over

Until recently, the only
cannabinoid most people had heard about was tetrahydrocannabinol
(THC), the psychoactive compound found in the flowers of the
Although THC can be found in very high
concentrations in this very well-known plant, so is CBD, which is
non-psychoactive (it doesn't get you high).

There's continually more research being done on cannabinoids so the
list of benefits may grow even more but for now, here are 33
ailments, diseases, or health issues that CBD oil has been proven to
effectively help with:
CBD is a Cancer Killer
This is one of the most incredible benefits possible, given how
many people die from cancer these days.
Any claim for
something to have the power to kill cancer cells is a bold one;
yet there is quite a bit of evidence from research done in
recent years that has found that CBD oil does, in fact, kill
this study, CBD was found to have the ability to inhibit the
proliferation, adhesion, migration, invasion, and angiogenesis
of tumor cells.
According to this
study, CBD (as well as THC) extracts inhibit cancer cell
growth and induce apoptosis (death) in cancer cells.
This study, along with
this one, demonstrated that human leukemia cells exposed to
cannabidiol led to tumor killing by induction of apoptosis.
Next, we have
this study which found that CBD BDS and CBD inhibit colon
cancer cell proliferation, but not in healthy cells.
this study, as well as
this one, found that cannabinoids possess anti-tumor
properties. CBD was able to produce significant anti-tumor
activity both in vitro and in vivo, suggesting a possible
application of CBD as an anti-neoplastic (prevents, inhibits, or
halts tumors) agent.
We also have
this study, along with
this one, showing that cannabidiol induces programmed cell
death in breast cancer cells by coordinating the cross-talk
between apoptosis and autophagy.
this study found cervical cancer is no match for the powers
of CBD and promptly goes on to destroy the cancerous cells.
To put all this
into a list, the amazing anti-tumor properties have been found
to obliterate cancer cells in the following nine conditions:
Leukemia (Blood Cancer)
the FDA in late 2017 issued warning letters to some companies
selling cannabinoid products online that claim to prevent,
diagnose, treat, or cure cancer, saying that there is no
evidence to support these outcomes.
They either missed all the
studies that have been done, some of which we have referenced
above, that found evidence contradicting their statement, or
they are intentionally putting forward such a statement for some
other reason, perhaps at the behest of
Given that the FDA has decided to give its unique
opinion concerning CBD's ability to disintegrate cancer cells,
we will put out the standard PSA that the statements in this
article have not been evaluated by the FDA.
We are simply
providing information based on the medical studies that have
been done using the scientific method, learning that cannabinoids have the potential to significantly hurt the bottom
line of multinational pharmaceutical corporations.
CBD Reduces Inflammation and Pain
looking for a natural and effective painkiller, this is it.
Perhaps the most commonly known benefit of CBD (and the reason
it's used most often for) is reducing inflammation and pain.
study found CBD significantly suppresses chronic
inflammatory and neuropathic pain without causing apparent

half of those with MS, being able to take a safe and affordable

By activating the endocannabinoid system, CBD acts
as a neuromodulator for a number of physiological processes.
this study has suggested that through its analgesic and
anti-inflammatory properties, CBD oil can also reduce the pain
in arthritis, as well as fibromyalgia, as
study has uncovered.
Unlike opiate painkillers, which only
mask pain and which the body builds up a tolerance to, CBD
doesn't lose its effectiveness over time.
Since CBD is
anti-inflammatory, it helps is a number of ailments, including
things like inflammatory bowel disease, as

of CBD being a cancer killer, the claim of it being able to
promote the formation of new brain cells seems like an

anxiety, and stress since these conditions are all related to a
lack of adult neurogenesis.

neuroprotective antioxidant vitamin C or vitamin E.
CBD Can Reverse Cognitive Decline from Alzheimer's Disease
cannabinoids being able to protect from neurodegenerative
this study found that cannabidiol has been shown to reverse
cognitive deficits of mice with Alzheimer's Disease and exert
neuroprotective, anti-oxidative, and anti-inflammatory
properties in vitro and in vivo.
This study provided evidence
that CBD is able to have potential as a preventative treatment
for Alzheimer's Disease with a particular relevance for symptoms
of social withdrawal and facial recognition.
CBD Can Reduce Psychosis
CBD has been

to be a helpful treatment for psychosis.
It appears to have a
pharmacological profile similar to that of atypical
antipsychotic drugs. Additionally, CBD prevents human
experimental psychosis and is effective in open case reports and
clinical trials in people with schizophrenia with a very safe
There has been a number of studies looking into
this interesting use for CBD, as
this one show, in regards to alleviating the negative side
effects of schizophrenia.
While current antipsychotic
medications can produce major side effects, CBD has been shown
to be safe and well tolerated in humans.
CBD Can Reduce Anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress
who have post-traumatic stress usually get anxiety, taking a CBD
supplement daily will quell that anxiety.
This study found that repeated CBD administration prevents
long-lasting anxiety effects.
As for those with pathological

with speaking in front of crowds? CBD can help with that.
this one found CBD decreased anxiety after a test was given
to measure social anxiety. CBD can also take away the anxiety
someone feels from its cousin, THC.
Also, if you're one of the
3% of people that exhibit OCD-like behaviors, cannabidiol can
help with that as well.
CBD Prevents Diabetes
Around half the

insulin-producing pancreatic cells and the production of

Prevents the Formation and Accumulation of Terrifying Prions
prion is an
infectious agent causing those diseases consisting only of
protein, with no nucleic acid genome. (All previously known
pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses, contain nucleic acids,
which enable them to reproduce.)
Think things like
disease. Prions cannot be destroyed by boiling, alcohol, acid,
standard autoclaving methods, or radiation.
In fact, infected
brains that have been sitting in formaldehyde for decades can
still transmit spongiform disease. Enter CBD. Cannabidiol has
been shown to halt prions in
study and may represent a promising new anti-prion drug.
Since the incubation time for prion diseases is anywhere from
5-20 years or more, it's best to start taking CBD right away,
particularly if you eat beef.
Makes Broken Bones Heal Faster
found that broken limbs healed much faster when treated with CBD.
People with osteoporosis, where bones become brittle, fragile
and therefore susceptible to fractures, are also able to benefit
from taking cannabidiol, since CBD stimulates greater activity
from osteoblasts (bone forming cells) and supports the process
by which collagen repairs fractures.
Gets Rid of Nausea
