The Potential Therapeutic Benefits of CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is taking the world by storm and being celebrated as a "miracle supplement."  While the FDA prohibits Native Remedy and other supplement companies from marketing specific therapeutic claims on their product, much of the existing and ongoing research has found CBD to be a promising potential therapy for many illnesses that medical professionals have previously thought to be untreatable.  Many studies, professionals and patients have suggested:

  •  CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory and regulator of gastric motility, which makes it a potential therapy for IBS, Crohn's disease, and colitis.
  •  At high doses, CBD activates the 5-ht1A receptor which helps regulate anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea, and vomiting.
  •  CBD is a powerful antioxidant, which makes it a preventative of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and ALS.  Its antioxidant properties also make it an age-reduction skin therapy.
  •  CBD's anti-inflammatory quality has been found to alleviate the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. 
  •  CBD is a positive allosteric modulator of the mu and delta opioid receptors. This means it enhances the ability of these receptors to receive endogenous enkephalins which can increase quality of life and naturally reduce chronic pain in patients with conditions ranging from fibromyalgia to arthritis to cancer.
  •  CBD's antipsychotic properties make it a viable alternative to pharmaceuticals for schizophrenic patients.  Generally, CBD is a great alternative for pharmaceuticals used to treat a host of diseases.  CBD activates PPAR-gamma receptors. PPAR-gamma receptors are located on the cell's nuclei and play a role in lipid uptake, insulin sensitivity, dopamine release and the degradation of beta-amyloid plaque.  This is why CBD has been found to have natural value for individuals with diabetes, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease.
  •  CBD has been found to not only effectively treat insomnia, but to create stable sleep patterns and consequently, long term relief from sleeplessness.
  • CBD's interaction with the endocannabinoid system helps to reduce nausea, particularly in chemo patients. Studies show that CBD actively destroys cancer cells, which makes it a potential non-toxic, painless alternative to chemotherapy.
  •  CBD also antagonizes GPR55 receptors which are widely distributed in the brain and help to control bone density and blood pressure.  When activated, GPR55 promotes cancer cell proliferation.  This antagonizing action helps explain the natural value of supplementing with CBD in individuals with cancer, osteoporosis, and high blood pressure.
  •  CBD had potential to impact adults and children with epilepsy.  Individuals who were experiencing dozens of seizures daily have found that CBD can dramatically decrease these numbers and find near instant relief from attacks.
