What do you really know about hemp?
I’m sure that you don’t know that hemp has been used as a medicinal plant for centuries. The one who has discovered the essential ingredients of cannabis is called Raphael Mechoulam and they are called cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC). These are just two of the one hundred cannabis ingredients and they are called herbal remedies.
Let’s talk about CBD
Cannabidiol is arguably the most curative ingredient of the plant and there is no documented research to prove the contrary. In fact, there are plenty of scientific studies, as well as human testimonies of people with serious illnesses, that demonstrate how beneficial CBD is to us. This one that makes cannabidiol so special and beneficial is that it has the incredible ability to interact with receptors in the cells of our body. It activates the function of these receptors within us and acts as a messenger for endocannabinoids, protecting them from threats and contributing to their optimal functioning, resulting in the proper functioning of our body.
You understand, therefore, that cannabidiol’s contribution to the human body is vital and its close association with it makes it capable of regulating processes, such as:
- The temperature control
- Pain control
- The appetite
It has been proven through hundreds of studies that cannabinoids have therapeutic properties that originate in the body’s core. This is where the cannabidiol comes into contact with what we call “homeostasis”. Homeostasis is essentially the maintenance of balance between biological functions, without being affected by external factors. The contribution of cannabidiol is so significant that it has been shown to provide therapeutic properties in the treatment of chronic pain, cancer and even HIV.
A small proportion of diseases where cannabidiol has pharmacological action:
- For the various side effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea
- In epilepsy
- For multiple sclerosis
- Depression and anxiety
- In anorexia
- In asthma
- In convulsions
- It is used to treat alcoholism
- For insomnia
- For memory loss
- Pottery relaxant
- For rheumatism
The huge potential of cannabidiol in modern medicine
As you may have already guessed, the use of cannabidiol is truly a startling breakthrough in medicine and health. It is the most promising method for dealing with a multitude of diseases while being a completely natural, non-toxic substance with no side effects. Its enormous potential goes far beyond the stigma of cannabis use and there is certainly much more to be discovered about it.
