What Doctors are saying about CBD? || Cannabidiol
You’ve heard of CBD, the cannabis product whose popularity has reached almost craze-like proportions. CBD has come from nowhere to everywhere in just the last few years. It is perhaps best known for its ability to reduce anxiety and promote happiness, but CBD’s applications are seemingly endless; it has been successfully used to help with pain, insomnia, and depression. There are some reports that it helps with other medical conditions as well.
Due to its wide range of uses, CBD-infused products are the fastest-growing segment of the health industry. Medical celebrities Dr. Oz and Dr. Sanjay Gupta advocate for CBD, as well as non-medical celebrities such as Joe Rogan, Morgan Freeman, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
CBD use is growing by leaps and bounds, with a projected $22 billion market by 2022. But what is CBD? I’ll be answering this question and also giving you the inside story of cannabidiol along with its benefits in this video.

What Doctors are saying about CBD? || Cannabidiol
What’s going on this is dr. Mike Hansen and in this video we’re talking about CBD what is CBD the story behind cannabidiol the cannabis product that gets you well not high you’ve heard of CBD the cannabis product whose popularity has reached almost crazed lake proportions CBD has come from nowhere to everywhere in just the last few years it is perhaps best known for its ability to reduce anxiety and promote happiness but CBDs applications are seemingly endless it’s been successfully used to help with pain insomnia and depression there are some reports that it helps with other medical conditions as well because of its wide range of uses CBD infused products are the fastest growing segment of the health industry even some pets are getting in on the action for example CBD troubles are used to calm dogs Carl’s jr. the fast food chain has created a burger served with a CBD infused sauce not that I endorse calls jr. or any fast food for that matter and New York City CBD infused coffee was all the rage and sell at the camp and then there is medical celebrities dr. oz and dr. Sanjay Gupta who actually advocate for CBD as well as non-medical celebrities such as Joe Rogan Morgan Freeman Quentin Paltrow then you got athletes such as David Wells who argue on behalf of CBD use in sports medicine where it’s anti-inflammatory power would allow players to recover more quickly and not risk opioid addiction there are plenty of MMA fighters who swear by it as well in Bubba Watson a professional golfer said that his decisions UCB was quote-unquote a no brainer the FDA even joined the bandwagon last year at least partially approving the CBD medication at the dialects this is despite the fact that cannabis remains illegal in eyes of the federal government so CBD use is growing by leaps and bounds with a projected twenty two billion dollar market by the year 2022 CBD is cannabidiol which is derived from the flower of cannabis the only plant genus that contains YOUnique class of molecular compounds called phytochemicals so there’s more than 8500 cannabinoids that have been identified but the two most prevalent are tetrahydrocannabinol aka THC and cannabidiol which is CBD THC is the psychoactive ingredient of cannabis meaning THC is the component that gets you high while CBD is the quote/unquote anti psychoactive ingredient meaning it doesn’t get you high there are actually two types of cannabis plants meaning there are two subspecies one is marijuana which is rich in THC and thus has been cultivated for the high associated with its recreational use and then there is hemp which is low in THC hemp was historically cultivated for the industrial uses or its tough fibers in December of 2018 in part because a growing body of scientific evidence showing CBDs therapeutic attributes the federal government legalized him although 33 states have legalized medical marijuana including 10 states with legal recreational use marijuana remains prohibited at the federal level so both hemp and marijuana contains CBD the recent full legalization of hemp is part of the reason why some experts believe the CBD market will have a societal impact as monumentous as the tech revolution two decades ago but to really understand what CBD is and why it is only so recently burst into such almost revolutionary prominence it helps to know a little bit about the history of cannabis and the biology of its use cannabis is believed to have been used medicinally recreationally and for spiritual reasons throughout much of humankind’s history it’s been used in some form by societies throughout the world the oldest known written record regarding its use comes from almost 5000 years ago in China ancient Greeks used it to dress wounds at horses and to apply to human nosebleeds it was medicinally popular among Vikings and medieval Germans for relieving pain during childbirth and for toothaches while Queen Elizabeth used cannabis to relieve her menstrual cramps but only in recent decades it’s have we come to understand how and why cannabis affects humans the plant was largely excluded from scientific study due to its widespread illegality until the 1960s when an Israeli chemist named Rafael McCollum McCullum was able to obtain confiscated hashish from police and study it he elucidated the structure of THC and CBD and then in 1992 made an even more fundamental discovery the existence of the endocannabinoid system meaning the EC s in the human body so the EC s is the body’s largest system of receptors and it’s found throughout the brain nervous system and organs it’s been described as the molecular bridge between the body and the mind scientists have come to believe the EC s is among the most important physiological systems involved in human health because it regulates both mood and homeostasis keeping internal systems balanced in the face of external stress and inflammation he said that by using a plant that has been around for thousands of years we discovered a new physiological system of immense importance we wouldn’t have been able to get there if we had not looked at the plant so the implications of this discovery including the burgeoning applications of CBD are only beginning to take shape and looking at the ec s McCullum uncovered naturally occurring neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids that are structurally nearly identical to the phyto cannabinoids found in cannabis THC mimics these endocannabinoids endocannabinoids and binds to the two main kinds of receptors in the body cb1 and cb2 CBD doesn’t directly bind the cb1 or cb2 receptors but instead serves as a real take and break down inhibitor preventing the breakdown of naturally-occurring endocannabinoids in the body this is essentially the same way that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs work which prevent the reuptake and breakdown of serotonin in the brain and if you’re not familiar with SSRIs these are the medications that are mainly used to treat anxiety and depression think paxil zoloft cetera so CBDs health impacts span the entire endocannabinoid system in particular researchers have found a CBD increases the levels of an and amide and cannabinoid known as the Bliss molecule derived from the Sanskrit word Ananda which means extreme happiness or one of the highest states of being CBD has shown to generally serve as a boon for brain health serving as both a protectant and enhancing neuroplasticity it’s been shown to be effective applied topically in reducing inflammation and overall body pain some early studies suggest that CBD might help fight cancer and has already earned a place in overall cancer treatment force ability to reduce nausea and help with pain and the benefits of CBD appear to come with little to no side effects according to the World Health Organization they said CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential and today there’s no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD because this is all relatively new science studies of CBDs efficacy in a number of treatments are still preliminary and its actual marketing is often suspect many products are being released without much regulatory oversight and the CBD levels and overall quality of CBD products are not always as advertised mostly they don’t come as advertised so some CBD products contain unwanted THC which means some people might test positive for marijuana so you really have to do your research to learn what CBD brands you can trust besides determining the safety and efficacy of CBD for various medical conditions there are lots of other questions that scientists need to answer for example what form of CBD should be taken what is the recommended dosage and much more so there’s a lot coming down the pike and if you want to know
