CBD (cannabidiol) stories have been hitting the newswires like wildfire since the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill passed in December 2018.
Verbiage contained in the new Farm Bill removed hemp’s classification as a schedule one drug to that of an agricultural commodity, opening the floodgates for products containing CBD oil which offers health and wellness opportunities for salons and day spas.
To understand the magnitude of this change in classification, let’s start with the history of hemp.
The medical discovery of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was made in the early 1990s. Fewer than 10% of medical schools actually study literature on ECS in their classes, because it’s that new. That’s why many physicians are hesitant to allow or recommend CBD products. They don’t have the time to research it and pharmaceutical companies are not eager to educate them on products they don’t have to market yet. With increased public demand, the physician’s learning curve will get faster.
If Cannabis is so great, why hasn’t Big Pharma taken steps to own it already?
It’s because they were restricted. Due to the prior illegal nature of Hemp, pharmaceutical companies couldn’t conduct studies on the benefits of CBD Oil without damaging relationships with the Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Pharmaceutical companies are way behind the supplement industry because they have to go through decades of research before coming out with a product. Their hands have been tied by bureaucracy. This is why supplemental products containing CBD can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of pharmaceutical drugs. However, this is also why it’s so important to know the facts about CBD products and what to look for before you make a purchase.
CBD Oil and ECS
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an informational paper. It does not promote CBD products as medical cures nor does it take the place of your physician’s advice and or prescribed treatments.
The Endocannabinoid System is fueled by our food supply. Our food supply is not as rich in nutrients as it used to be. CBD supports and mimics the ECS function with phytocannabinoids. CBD Oil is super fuel for ECS, full of linoleic acid and other key omega fatty acids to help rejuvenate the body.
Receptors impacted by CBD include Opioid receptors which affect pain : Dopamine receptors which affect memory and mood; and Serotonin receptors which affect anxiety and depression.
Full-Spectrum oil contains Cannabinoids, Terpenes, Flavonoids, Vitamins, Minerals, Proteins, and Fatty Acids. Using full-spectrum oils are the key to getting the most benefit from your dietary supplement.
CBD is Safe.
CBD is safe when purchased from a reputable company. There has never been one instance of overdose with CBD. As CBD supports the Endocannabinoid System, it normalizes, putting a flat cap on overactive systems. Using too much is just wasting product.
