CBD and Cancer
Marijuana has been used in herbal remedies for centuries. Scientists have identified many biologically active components in marijuana. These are called cannabinoids. The two best studied components are the chemicals delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (often referred to as THC), and cannabidiol (CBD).Based on a number of studies, dronabinol can be helpful for reducing nausea and vomiting linked to chemotherapy.
Dronabinol has also been found to help improve food intake and prevent weight loss in patients with HIV. .Nabiximols has shown promise for helping people with cancer pain that’s unrelieved by strong pain medicines
Stress and Anxiety
Rich evidence has shown that cannabis products exert a broad gamut of effects on emotional regulation. After consuming CBD, participants reported a significant decrease in anxiety. Researchers validated patients’ subjective reports by performing brain scans showing cerebral blood flow patterns consistent with an anti-anxiety effect.
Medical cannabis has anticonvulsant properties. The plant contains 85 different chemical compounds called cannabinoids. The most recognized one in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but most of the anticonvulsant properties come from a different chemical in the plant called cannabidiol (CBD).Cannabis treatment for seizures is gaining support from a growing roster of medical practitioners who are urging its legal access, including the Epilepsy Foundation in the United States.
A healthy appetite is vital to a healthy body, especially when the body is healing. Some illnesses decrease the appetite to the point of preventing the body from healing itself. CBD stimulates appetite, according to the National Cancer Institute. In the human body, CBDs bind to cannabinoid receptors in the body. Scientists believe these receptors play an important role in regulating feeding behavior. CBDs stimulate appetite when they dock onto these receptors.
"No throat issues anymore.I’ve tried at least 4 other brands and they always made my throat sore or very phlegmy. I was always clearing my throat. We visited a new store a couple of weeks ago and they carried Mary’s. I have had absolutely no side effect / throat issues with the plain CBC and CBD/THC! I purchased top of the line oils before and was about to give it up. Very happy and very satisfied with the results!"
"I use the 1:1 Compound cream on my lower back, where I had a laminectomy surgery two years ago. It takes the pain away within 10 minutes, and lasts at least 6 hours. An unexpected benefit is it puts me in a great mood! I have energy enough to work hard and stay active. This is so much better than steroid patches or creams. Now that I have discovered this, I have no plans to be without it. I use it every day."
