HEMP & CANNABIS HEALTH
CBD THERAPY - Kennedy’s Acre
One of the significant phytocannabinoid molecules of Hemp is the non-psychoactive counterpart, Cannabidiol, aka CBD. Hemp Plant Extract is derived from Agricultural Hemp and is legal according to the Farm Bill of 2014. Recent research is confirming the benefits of CBD and its healing potential.
CBD is similar to a compound that our bodies produce naturally called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids are found in the hemp plant, but they occur naturally and are the most potent in hemp. When we consume cannabinoids, they stimulate the endocannabinoid system, a system of receptors throughout our central nervous system, and almost every organ of our bodies (our skin, digestive tracts, etc.). Cannabinoids are the keys that unlock these receptors. This system is incredibly vital to our health because they can help with our immune systems, protect our brains, help us manage stress, and even keep our bodies in balance (“homeostasis”). We like to think of CBD like a vitamin. For example, we’re born with calcium in our bones, and as we age, our natural reserves of calcium deplete. Much in the same way that we’re encouraged to start taking calcium supplements to keep our bones healthy, we also need to supplement our natural reserves of CBD as we get older to help keep our bodies in balance.
WHAT CAN YOU USE IT FOR?
As with any supplement, the effects (and the amount you need to experience those effects) can vary based on your body chemistry. Doctors have trusted cannabinoids – CBD being one – to deliver long-lasting relief from many ailments, including pain, inflammation, anxiety, and seizures. CBD continues to be studied and tested by scientists, pharmaceutical companies, and healthcare professionals as a natural solution to common ailments such as those mentioned above.
