CBD has been a hot topic for well over a year now. A CBD oil treatment has helped people with a wide variety of different health issues, ranging from anxiety to simple pain relief. And while its use remains highly controversial for some, its effectiveness is hard to argue.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from the hemp plant. Marijuana also comes from the same plant, but the two chemicals are VERY different. Unlike the active ingredient in marijuana – THC, cannabidiol is not psychoactive.
The human body produces certain cannibidiols on its own, and it has two receptors of the chemical commonly referred to as CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors in the brain handle coordination, movement, pain, and emotions. CB2 (found in the immune system), affect inflammation and pain. Until recently, many scientists believed that CBD attached to these two receptors. Instead, CB1-2 seem to promote cannibidiol use within the human body.

With one ingredient having the ability to assist in the treatment of a staggering number of health symptoms, one must wonder why it’s not prescribed by doctors on a regular basis. Maybe it has something to do with the billion dollar prescription drug industry, or the unwillingness to accept nontraditional methods of treatment. Whatever the case may be, CBD seems to fill a ‘void’ in the healthcare marketplace, a void — that until now — has been largely overlooked.
In a recent case, CBD was used to cure a woman of her skin condition. Cheryl Halliburton (27), suffered from severe eczema since she became pregnant with her child at the age of 23. She was prescribed steroids to help with her flare ups, painkillers to help with pain, and used facial creams in an attempt to soothe the itchiness. Doctors administered a variety of different tests, that all came back normal, and made the decision to discharge Cheryl shortly after.
After dealing with the incredible discomfort for months, Cheryl decided to try a CBD oil treatment. She found that inhaling the non-psychoactive liquid via a vaporizer had a positive effect. After just two weeks of use, her skin had completely cleared up, and she hadn’t had a flare up (triggered by food).
Cheryl purchased her CBD liquid from a local vape shop near her home, and has continued to use the product. Since starting the CBD oil treatment, she has been able to go shopping with her daughter, and enjoy the food that once caused her skin issues. In other words, cannibidiol use was a direct (and more effective) replacement for the steroids and skin creams Cheryl was taking. Not only was it used in place of the drugs and skin creams, but was likely a more cost effective alternative to the expensive prescriptions, and visits to the doctor.
CBD should be taking seriously, there’s no doubt about it. As a society, can we really afford to write it off as nonsense?
