Despite the stigma put on cannabis, the cannabis plant is much more than a psychoactive drug that the “stoners and hippies” use to get loaded. In it’s raw form the leaves and buds are filled with a compound called cannabidiol (CBD). It is a non psychoactive, antioxidant, anti inflammatory, and anti cancer nutrient compound that has proven itself to be a miracle superfood capable of preventing or reversing a plethora of chronic illnesses.It has unique immune regulating abilities.
We are born with a built in endogenous cannabinoid system and cannabinoid receptors. Adding CBD from marijuana helps regulate the body’s cell communication and proper immune functions.
The way that CBD works is, in laymen terms it bridges the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system, including in the brain by providing a two way system of communication that completes a positive feedback loop, as opposed to a one way transmission, which can promote chronic inflammation of healthy tissue, the unique two way transmission system engaged by marijuana CBD’s mimic the body’s own two way communications system.
People who have compromised immune systems, cellular dysfunction, chronic inflammation, cancer cells and a plethora of other chronic illnesses can derive a wide variety of health promoting benefits by simply consuming CBD.
