Trinity Healers Cannabidiol (CBD), pronounced CAN-na-bid-EYE-all or can-na-BID-ee-all, is the oldest major “Cannabinoid” found in Cannabis. While most people have heard of “THC,” the natural Cannabinoid responsible for the “high” of Marijuana or Cannabis, CBD is a little like “Anti-THC:” It doesn’t cause a high, and it also reduces the THC high. One way to think of it is “THC is to the head as CBD is to the body.”
CBD might be the most important Cannabinoid for health. Up to 100% of the adult human and pet population can benefit from it, in hundreds of ways, as a prevention or treatment: good for all kinds of cancer, all kinds of inflammation, all kinds of seizures, many brain, liver, and cardiovascular functions and health, and much more.
After thousands of studies, it has been proven effective at preventing or treating Acne, Alcoholism, Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS, Anxiety, Apnea, Arthritis, Asthma, Atherosclerosis, Atrial fibrillation, Bone fractures, all Cancers, COPD, CTE, Depression, Diabetes, Dravet Syndrome, DTs, Dysphoria, Eating disorders, Endometriosis, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Free radicals, Glaucoma, Hangover, Heart disease, Huntington’s Disease, Hypertension, Immune system, Infection, Infertility, Inflammation, Insomnia, Liver damage, Malaria, Migraines, MRSA/CVE infection, Nausea, Neurogenesis (creates brain cells), Neuropathy, Obesity, Opiate addiction and withdrawal, Organ transplant, Pain, Pancreatitis, Parkinson’s Disease, Psychosis, PTSD, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Schizophrenia, Sickle Cell Anemia, Stroke, Tourette’s Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury (concussion), Tremors, Tumors, and more. Cannabinoids generate new brain cells, and are useful in maintaining health and preventing disease.
Cannabis is one of mankind’s oldest cultivated plants, perhaps the oldest. For instance, it is many times older than the soya plant. It provided early humans with fiber for shelter and clothes, oil for lamps, protein and Omega-3 essential fatty acids for health, perfume from the essential oil, and medicine– all in an easy to transport and store seed form which grew to maturity in a few months with little water or cultivation.
CBD is not psychoactive, and is non-toxic, non-addictive, and 100% legal. It was never legally on the list of Controlled or Scheduled drugs in the USA. It is as legal as hempseed oil and hemp nut to the FDA, grandfathered under DSHEA 1994. The US government even has hundreds of patents on it.
Recommended dosages for treatment range from 3 mg daily for seizure control in small dogs, to 1,500 mg daily for aggressively treating cancer. CBD is well-tolerated at high doses (600 mg was studied). For prevention of diseases using CBD, a daily dose of 50 mg is suggested. One patient reported that taking CBD made him feel like he got a massage, with a relaxed body and no high.
The forms of CBD product administration include oral, smoked or vaporized, rectal or vaginal, and topical; the form of CBD product can be oil, tincture, edible (food), pill, suppository, flower for smoking or vaping, and concentrate for smoking or vaping. You can also “compound” Cannabinoids, that is, mix them to the ratio and quantity you want, from different forms or sources.
Cannabinoids work by acting on the “Endocannabinoid System” (ECS), which regulates and controls virtually every function in the body. The part of the body the Cannabinoid usually works on is called the Cannabinoid Receptor. (The so-called “synthetic cannabinoids” popular today with teens who are required to be tested for Marijuana, such as “K2” and “Spice,” do work on the ECS, but they are pure synthetic chemicals and are not derived from the Cannabis plant. Drug testing for marijuana is therefore killing our youth, literally.) CBD also acts on the systemically, without binding to any of the Cannabinoid Receptors.
As CBD has been intentionally bred-out of marijuana since the 1960s, 98% of the CBD on the planet is found in industrial hemp, which was never selected for the high unlike marijuana.
