Using CBD

Cannabidiol (or also known as CBD) has been used for medicating, stress and pain relief for such a long time now. However, people who are new to cannabis should know that there is a significant difference between THC and CBD. These two are the main components of the cannabis plant, but contrary to THC, CBD has been proven to be non-psychoactive, it has neuroprotective properties, and has been praised for the amazing medicinal benefits, like being an excellent antioxidant, as well as an anti-inflammatory agent. CBD has become pretty popular today and has been used in the food and drink industry, as well as the therapy and beauty industry. CBD has been used for healing for such a long time now, providing fantastic health benefits without dealing with THC's psychoactive effects. 

And are some of the most popular uses of CBD:

Cancer - CBD does not cure cancer, but cancer patients could still benefit from CBD. Although there are so many different types of cancer, most of the time, they share some common symptoms, like constant pain, weight loss, tiredness, and fever. CBD has a function of stimulating apophatic pathways in the body to eliminate cells that are not functioning correctly, which can help prevent tumors from growing as cancer cells are abnormal and die out. 

Anxiety Disorder - Anxiety is not harmful or dangerous unless it turns into a condition that interferes with the standard quality of life and social and mental functionality. CBD helps to lower stress levels and makes this condition more bearable. It helps to relax the person, calm them down and bring them out of a psychotic state. 

Chronic Pain - Pain becomes chronic if it lasts for at least 12 weeks or more. Unfortunately, many people rely on heavy medications in the hope of a sense of relief, while CBD offers a safer and healthier option because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It also protects our neurons and acts as an antioxidant. It's been proven that it is safe to use for patients suffering from pain related to cancer, as well as terminally ill patients.

Strokes - Medically explained, a stroke happens when a blockage in the arteries and blood vessels occurs in the brain. This then causes inflammation and free radicals are released that are very harmful. CBD is very helpful as it helps counter certain brain actions while also reducing inflammation and removing the dead brain cells.

Diabetes - There are two types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2. They require different treatment approaches, but they share one common factor - too much glucose in the blood. When insulin production is lowered or stopped altogether, it leads to inflammation in the cells, and we know that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. It also protects the cell walls against further damage caused by the lack of sufficient insulin levels.
