My blog is dedicated to the exploration of industrial hemp in America including the rich history of all forms of cannabis, the evolving law and politics of hemp and marijuana, the many products made from cannabis and the capacity, real or imagined, of hemp to re-industrialize rural America and revitalize the American family farm.

Cannabinoids Like CBD Can Benefit Your Overall Health
There are studies that show cannabidiol (CBD) can benefit a lot of specific issues. There are a few issues that are so common, almost everyone is bound to have one of them. Around 3 million American’s per year suffer from severe anxiety, almost 13 million are diagnosed with cancer annually, and nearly 35 million people suffer from arthritis. This doesn’t account for other inflammation issues, or people with anxiety that isn’t “severe”. The National Cancer Institute says approximately 40% of people worldwide will develop some sort of cancer in their lifetime.
So, what’s the good news? Every one of these people, including yourself, has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system impacts virtually every area of our body. By supplementing our bodies with cannabinoids like CBD, we help to “feed” this system, and prevent an endocannabinoid deficiency.
It’s been shown that CBD may help decrease anxiety in studies like this oneThe results in this study suggest that CBD has anxiolytic properties, and that it was because of an action in the limbic and Para limbic brain areas.
Studies like this one show that CBD blocked the rise of lipopolysaccharide (a large molecule that provokes a strong immune response in animals). So, it was concluded that CBD has a potent anti-arthritic effect in CIA, because of its immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory properties.
Other studies, like this one, show why CBD may help alleviate cancer cells. This study revealed a connection between apoptosis (the body’s way of tagging specific cells for death at a scheduled time, often referred to as “committing suicide) and autophagy in breast cancer cells treated with CBD. It also emphasized that CBD should be further studied as an antineoplastic agent.
Because our endocannabinoid system plays a part in all three of these issues, it is vital for us to “feed” our endocannabinoid system and keep it satisfied.
