If your patients are suffering from a chronic health condition that’s negatively impacting their lives, it’s likely you’ve heard the buzz about cannabidiol, or CBD for short.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that is rapidly changing the general perception of cannabis as a medicine. Just about everyone has heard of THC, which is the substance in cannabis that gets individuals high.
CBD doesn’t get the user high or cause any euphoric effect that THC does, and there’s growing evidence to suggest that it has many medical benefits.
How Can CBD Change Patient Health?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is supporting the regulating homeostasis through cannabinoid receptors located throughout the endocannabinoid (EC) system which is located in multiple spots throughout your patient's body.
The endocannabinoid (EC) system which is located in every human being, essentially regulates the metabolic process that affects the psychological and physical health of the individual.
Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to activate the cannabinoid receptors within the EC system the same way endogenous cannabinoids like anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) can. CBD is enabling patients to achieve and maintain a homeostasis state, which in turn keeps their bodies in balance.
Research has already shown that CBD is providing patient's relief from a wide array of health complaints, eliminating the dependency on pharmaceutical therapies with troubling side effects.
Which Patients Can Cannabidiol Help?
To date, there are no known side effects to cannabidiol, making it an excellent natural solution for a variety of patient types.
