In 1964 a young researcher fascinated with biology and chemistry by the name of Dr. Raphael Mechoulam working at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Tel Aviv, Israel, decided to study a prevalent yet poorly understood plant used for thousands of years for medicine and recreation called Cannabis.
While studying the Cannabis plant he discovered a compound in that plant called THC. He also discovered that our bodies have not only an immune system but it also has what is called the Endocannabinoid system built right in. A protective and regulatory system that requires and creates cannabinoids to work some pretty miraculous things in our bodies .
It also works with the immune system and is a very important regulatory/protective system all on its own. The Endocannabinoid system has receptors not only in the brain (CB1 receptors) but also throughout the entire body (CB2 receptors). In lay mans terms this means that our bodies actually need cannabinoids to act like a key in a lock and key protective system all our bodies have, in order to operate correctly and heal itself.
Now Cannabinoids, no matter which cannabis sativa plant you get them from; whether it's from the mostly illegal Marijuana plant or legal industrial hemp, have caused quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and patients who are using Cannabidiol (CBD)-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions - conditions such as chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, epilepsy, muscle spasems and many more.
The entire spectrum of Cannabinoids but more specifically Cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabidiol (is considered the work horse of cannabinoids) have been well documented in peer reviewed medical journals and studies over the last 40+ yrs. The Research shows that cannabinoids (specifically CBDs aka Cannabidiol)...when working with the rest of the minor cannabinoids in what is called the "Entourage Effect", have been proven to have very strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities.
