What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) has some of the best healing properties in the marijuana plant. CBD is the non psychoactive part of the plant, which means it doesn’t medicate you like the THC in the plant does. CBD was discovered in 1940 by a scientist named roger adams. Today there are about 113 different cannabinoids known. The three main categories are THC, CBD, and CBN. Today CBD has a variety of healing properties ranging from pain management all the way to reducing the amount of seizures people have. Why use CBD vs. Other types of medication? The biggest reason I use CBD is there are no harmful chemicals to be ingested. If the CBD is extracted properly, you will see a 99% pure product. You can take CBD in a variety of ways today. Just to name a few, there are l, tinctures, topicals, edibles, and dabs. Topicals are the lotions, you rub the lotions on the area that is causing you pain. Within 45 minutes to an hour the healing effects will start to take place for the lotions. I take CBD in edible form, this can take up to, or more than 90 minutes. I was prescribed a medical marijuana card in 2014 to see how medical marijuana helped my pain management vs using anti-inflammatories. I have found CBD helps nearly every type of pain I’ve cone across. One of the greatest things I’ve seen  CBD do is help a child who had seizures nearly all day every day. His father gave his son CBD in a video while the son of having a seizure. Amazingly,  in just a matter of seconds his seizure had went away. He went from have up to 100 seizures a day to a mere 3 to 5 a day. Today the studies of what CBD helps includes, anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. If you have been taking anti-inflammatory drugs your whole life (aspirin, tylenol, etc.) Maybe it’s time to try CBD. what people are calling the miracle medicine. Today CBD is sold all around the country. Even if you live in a state where THC is illegal you will still be able to get your hands on this incredible medicine. CBD works in different ways for different people. It all depends on how your bodies cannabinoid receptors are in your body. My doctor told me that my cannabinoid receptors don’t align correctly for me to digest THC or CBD. So edibles will not work for me. If you try one way of taking CBD and it doesn’t help, Try another way. For me topicals and dabs work wonders for my body.
