Your body has an endocannabinoid system, which in short means that it has receptors for cannabinoid compounds like CBD and THC. CBD and THC both interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system, a biological communication system that regulates a wide array of functions, like:
Some health benefits of CBD include
Measurably relieved chronic pain in conjunction with THC
Triggered breast cancer cell death and down-regulated the receptor which makes sure aggressive breeds of breast cancer proliferate
Inhibited lung cancer invasion and metastasis (spread)
Significantly reduced multiple sclerosis symptoms in patients in a randomized, placebo-controlled study plus a larger series of multi-center randomized placebo-controlled trials
In larger doses (160mg), it helped participants you sleep — even in people who normally suffer from sleeplessness.
Greater doses decreased anxiety during public speaking.
Increased alertness in tiny doses (15 mg) in rats and humans.
Decreased social stress by controlling the amygdala, part of your brain that controls anxiety.
Substantially increased symptoms of schizophrenia.
