Cannabis contains 85 chemical compounds known as ‘Cannabinoids’ that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids like CBD and THC activate speci c cells in our brains called cannabinoid receptors, which transmit signals and have varying physiological effects on our bodies.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 (found primarily in the brain, and also the liver, kidneys and lungs) and CB2 (found mainly in the immune system).
Together, the cannabinoid receptor sites help make up what is called the endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate things like memory, appetite, pain sensation, mood, sleep and more.
CBD oil and the cannabinoids in it are non-psychoactive, safe and have been known to provide relief from anxiety and in ammation.
CBD is currently being studied by scientists and is legal in most places across the world, when taken as a dietary supplement.
Many people have used CBD and report that it can be successful to treat a wide array
Medical tests are currently examining the use of CBD to alleviate epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, spasms, convulsions, nausea, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, in ammations, and other conditions such as cancer.
CBD has been also scienti cally proven to inhibit the growth of the MRSA bacterium (the antiibiotic-resistant staphyloccus) which causes infections. CBD also has antioxidant prop- erties which remain to be fully explored, and it is safe and legal to use in any reasonable dosage.
The recommended dose of CBD oil is:
*one drop the size of a grain of rice, under the tongue, three times a day the rest week, then double that dose in week two.
*You may continue to double your dosage every four to seven days until you reach a daily maximum of 300mg/ml per day (21-24 drops in a syringe = 1 ml) after about six to eight weeks. Continue at that dose until the ailment is gone.
Building up to the 1ml a day maximum dosage allows your body to develop a tolerance, and then after three to six months of this regimen you can maintain your health with a single drop of CBD oil under the tongue twice a day.
The higher the CBD oil concentration the better (above 25% or 250 mg/ml is recommended).
