You’ve likely heard of cannabinoid oil over the last couple of years as Maraijuana and CBD specifically have been acknowledged for its medical applications by mainstream sources. If you aren’t familiar then I am so excited for you to read this but first let me start out by saying it is not the same thing as pot or weed and this post isn’t about getting high. That’s not really my thing.
Much of the scientific and clinical research that is sponsored by the US government downplays CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. This is part of the corruption and control by large pharmaceutical companies in this country that want to keep us sick and on their drugs.
So why am I so into it?
Each day we are exposed to hundreds of toxins, known as free radicals.
Exposure comes from the polluted air we breath, the food and beverages we consume, and the products we use on our body or around the house. No matter how healthy you are these toxins contribute to aging, both mentally and physically, by constantly damaging your cells and neurons.
This increases your susceptability to premature aging, stress, and disease.
Cannabinoids, like CBD, are naturally occuring antioxidants and nueroprotectants found in industrial hemp aka pot. Yes- there are antioxidants in that stuff and they are very beneficial for our bodies.
