CBD is used for Healing
Since ancient times people have known CBD is used for healing. There have been tribes of humans who had the knowledge that Cannabis has healing substances.
They have been using CBD for healing since ancient times and now in recent times scientists have discovered exactly how the healing effects work. Modern science explains Cannabis is predominantly made up of two molecules; CBD and THC. These are molecule groups, which then break down into more parts.
CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol and modern science explains there are 113 in cannabinoids in existence. The interesting part is the human body naturally creates an endocannabinoid system within itself by the age of 3, so we already have cannabinoid receptors built inside our bodies.
CBD vs THC
Between the two molecular groups one has psychoactive effects, THC. And the other has physical healing effects, CBD. This is a general statement and both THC and CBD are used for healing and both have healing properties. THC is more catered towards psychological healing effects. For example it is very commonly used for helping people who unfortunately suffer with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It’s interesting as historians have mentioned Cannabis has been used for the mental healing of warriors in ancient times as well. We’ll leave THC for another article and bring our focus back to CBD and its’ uses for healing.
Back to CBD
A recent study in Israel has proven CBD helps heal bones. In fact, they’ve been able to prove using CBD to heal a fractured bone will not only help the bone heal faster but it will heal even stronger than it’s original form.
The important aspect of CBD to remember is that it doesn’t have any “high” effects, so it can be used commonly and daily when needed as a supplement. Some common uses for CBD are;
CBD has calming affects, which help with all sorts of pain. CBD can be used for aiding any sort of physical pain. Athletes use it for recovery, it helps with aiding pain of any post-injury, and of course all types of chronic pain.
CBD calms and almost completely stops all epilepsy attacks for children. It can help epilepsy in adults as well.
As mentioned, CBD has calming affects which helps with both anxiety and depression.
CBD aids our white blood cells in healing our body, so this not only helps with reducing inflammation, but it actually helps our whole immune system as well.
With all of these benefits it’s no wonder CBD has become such a hot topic in the world today and why most first world countries are now legalizing the substance for the betterment of humanity.
