WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a special type of molecule, known as a cannabinoid, which is found in plants including Flax, Azaleas and Cannabis/Industrial Hemp. It is legal in all 50 states and does not contain the psychoactive “THC” component.

Research and Information about CBD
The United States Department of Health and Human Services holds patent 6,630,507 titled ‘Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants.’ In this patent, the authors claim that:
Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.
Cannabidiol has been studied as an antiepileptic (Carlini et al., J. Clin. Pharmacol. 21:417S-427S, 1981; Karler et al., J. Clin. Pharmacol. 21:437S-448S, 1981, Consroe et al., J. Clin Phannacol. 21:428S-436S, 1981). Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.
The Body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
Each of us have been created with an ECS. The ECS in our bodies have two basic types of receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB! receptors are in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 receptors are dispersed throughout our immune system all over the body.
Generally these function to support or enhance:
- Pain reduction (analgesia)
- Autonomic nervous system
- Balance or Homeostasis
- Immune function
- Stress reduction
- Thermoregulation (body heat and cold)
Numerous peer reviewed journal articles document CBD’s effectiveness as:
- ANTIEMETIC – reduces nausea and vomiting
- ANTICONVULSANT – suppresses seizure activity
- ANTIPSYCHOTIC – combats psychosis disorders
- ANTIOLYTIC/ANTI-DEPRESSANT – combats anxiety and depression
- ANTI-TUMORAL/ANTI-CANCER – combats tumor and cancer cells
- ANTIOXIDANT – combats free radical damage
- ANTI-INFLAMMATORY – combats inflammatory disorders
