Happy 420 everyone! If you read my blog post from a few weeks ago (thanks Mom), you'll remember that I talked about one of the many uses of hemp, a derivative of the cannabis plant. In keeping with that theme, this week I'll be talking about cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, and its many beneficial uses.

If you haven't already heard of it by now, you'll probably going to start seeing more and more CBD products available on the market. Cannabidiol is one of the many cannabinoids, a class of diverse chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that act on receptors to repress neurotransmitter release in the brain. If you read my last article, you'll remember me talking about how anything associated with cannabis scares people because of the weed and drug association. Well CBD is no exception to that. In fact, I don't think it would be far reaching to say the idea of CBD might scare people even more than consuming or using hemp products.

Not to be confused with medical marijuana, which has been used to treat a variety of ailments and conditions since ancient times, the use of CBD dates back to the 19th century and is a prevalent topic in the medical field today.

Should You Hesitate To Try It?

If there's one marijuana-related compound you've heard of, it's tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the reason behind the marijuana craze and behavior -- it's what gets you high and the reason marijuana is smoked recreationally. The medical value of the cannabis plant, however, comes from CBD.

Kind of like the phrase "sex sells" in marketing, the THC is what sells when it comes to recreational users. CBD, a non-psychoactive component of marijuana, is popular more-so with people who want to reap the plant's wide range of therapeutic benefits. The whole point of CBD products is to remove the THC and leave nothing but the good.

Try CBD for anxiety, depression or pain management.

So, What's It Used For?

Brain Damage - The therapeutic potential of CBD was put to the test in a University of Kentucky study back in 2013. The study showed how CBD can prompt physiological brain changes, which could help offset the damaged caused by chronic alcoholism. The study found that administering CBD resulted in a 48.8% reduction in entorhinal cortex neurodegeneration.

Cancer - Scientists at the California Pacific Medical Center found that CBD "turns off" the cancer gene that causes cancer cells to metastasize or spread. While medical marijuana has been used by cancer patients for quite some time now to provide them with a bit of relief, this finding only helps add to the evidence that marijuana is one of the most beneficial things that a cancer patient could consume.

Mood Disorders - In a study published in 2011, CBD's impact on social anxiety was put to the test. The study found that those pre-treated with CBD prior to speaking publicly experienced significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort during their speech performance. The placebo group experienced noticeably higher levels of anxiety and discomfort. The authors of the study stress that CBD holds a number of advantages over standard social anxiety treatments like anti-depressants due to its quick onset of efficiency and absence of severe withdrawal symptoms or side effects.

Schizophrenia - A clinical trial in Germany found CBD to be as effective in treating schizophrenia as common antipsychotic medication with far fewer side effects. CBD, in and of itself, is what offsets the negative mental effects of THC alone, so any marijuana users with a history of mental illness should keep that in mind.

Epilepsy - CBD has also been known to help with Davet Syndrom, which is also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy (SMEI). The seizure that results from this type of epilepsy are often triggered by hot temperatures or fever. Dravet Syndrome is a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy and is life-long and debilitating. As an alternative treatment, families have reported that the use of CBD has been beneficial with both seizure management and cognition.

Pain Management - CBD use is increasing through the world as research suggests it to be helpful for seizures, anxiety, other aforementioned ailments and more. With pain management being one of the most costly factors to both treat and manage, research shows that cannabinoids (Cannbidiol/CBD) have been shown in preliminary trials to be effective in modulating the response to pain.

Is It Legal?

Drum roll please... YES. In the United States it's perfectly legal to have any number of CBD-infused products sent to your home in a safe and legal manner. It's available in the form of an oil, solution, edible, capsule, lotion, gum and the list goes on. We here at eVitamins have just started to delve into the world of CBD ourselves.
