Let’s set the record straight right here and right now, CBD is NOT THC. CBD works differently in the body than THC. CBD is completely non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive and is safe for almost everyone, according to a recent report from the World Health Organization. From children to pregnant women, as long as you are not ingesting trace amounts of THC (which many CBD products on the market have, but VitaFlore does NOT), it’s safe for almost everyone to take!
Receptors for cannabinoids are found in the digestive, reproductive, nervous, and immune systems and because cannabinoids interact with almost every system in our bodies, it helps regulate
CBD Health Benefits:
1. Helps decrease chronic pain –
Taking CBD can offer incredible pain relief. In fact, it has been approved in Canada for multiple sclerosis and cancer pain. Research reported in the Scientific Americanfound endocannabinoids are largely responsible for the natural euphoria or “runner’s high” that increases feelings of well-being and decreases the perception of pain. CBD doesn’t cause dependence or tolerance, so it’s also a great choice for those trying to stay away from opioids!
2. Lowers inflammation –
Chronic inflammation is a contributor to many non-infectious diseases such as Cancer, Autoimmune Disease, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, etc. CBD suppresses cytokine production and induces T-regulatory cells to protect the body from attacking itself, which can help autoimmune conditions! *Reminder that it’s also important to address gut health to manage inflammation.
2. Improves mood disorders –
CBD works directly on the brain receptors 5HT1A (serotonin) and GABA (inhibitory neurotransmitter). Low levels of these can cause anxiety and depression, which CBD can help with both. CBD has been shown to reduce levels of stress and anxiety helping with things like PTSD, social anxiety disorder, OCD, etc. CBD has been shown to reduce depression by enhancing both serotonergic and glutamate cortical signaling. *B12 deficiency may also be to blame for depression.
4. Helps treat seizures –
May relieve epilepsy in children. CBD has anti-seizure properties that have been shown to successfully treat drug-resistant children who have neurological disorders like epilepsy (with no side effects). Side note: Research is also showing that a ketogenic diet can be helpful for epilepsy, especially in children.
5. Fights bacteria –
Unsure why/how exactly, but researchers are discovering that CBD has an unusual ability to destroy drug-resistant bacteria. CBD seems to be a potent weapon against the antibiotic resistant “superbugs” that are becoming more and more of a problem today.
6. Reduces oxidative stress –
Oxidative stress is when the body has too many free radicals and can’t keep up with neutralizing them. CBD acts as an antioxidant and has neuroprotective qualities. It can reduce neurological damage caused by free radicals.
7. Supports healthy weight –
CBD can help maintain healthy blood sugar, stimulates genes and proteins that helps break down fat, and increase mitochondria that helps burn calories.
8. Improves heart health –
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. According to research. CBD can help reduce artery blockage, reduce stress induced cardiovascular response, and can reduce blood pressure. It may also reduce cholesterol.
As mentioned earlier, CBD oil is helpful in preventing oxidative stress and inflammation. Both of these are often precursors to heart disease.
