Cannabis bisphenol (CBD) is one of more than 100 cannabinoids in cannabis. CBD interacts with your body's endogenous cannabinoid system, which regulates appetite, anxiety, mood and pain. Scientists identified the effects of cannabinoids on our health in the early 1990s, and these curious compounds have recently attracted the attention of increasingly diverse people seeking relief.
Part of the excitement of cannabinoids is related to their anti-inflammatory potential. Inflammation is associated with many health problems - from mild pain and discomfort to depression and anxiety to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease.
But marijuana has a wider range of potential applications.
First, let's look at the four health benefits associated with CBD.
1. Pain relief: CBD has analgesic effect, and the side effects related to cannabis are less than many over-the-counter and prescription painkillers. The risk of dependency is also low.
2. Reduce anxiety: research shows that CBD can reduce social anxiety. There is also evidence to support CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety, panic, OCD and PTSD.
3. Help treat cancer: marijuana has long been used to help relieve chemotherapy-related symptoms, including nausea and vomiting. But more and more scientists are studying how cannabinoids such as marijuana inhibit tumor growth.
4. Prevention of epilepsy: the first FDA approved drug containing CBD is epidiolex, which is suitable for the treatment of two rare childhood epilepsy. Although the U.S. Food and drug administration has warned that more research is needed before people begin to attribute more health claims to CBD, approval of the drug will take decades.
Remember that the experts we are talking about express enthusiasm and doubt.
The researchers talked about remarkable results. They are eager to discuss decades of research into the possible positive health effects of cannabis. Most also acknowledge that regulations, funding and research opportunities limit the answers.

Summary of findings
Cannabis health index (chi) score for each case. Chi uses a 5-point system to document marijuana (not just CBD) efficacy in certain situations. One noted the possibility of effectiveness, while five indicated demonstrable efficacy.
Conditional evidence Chi score (1-5)
ADHD can provide more dopamine for the brain, just like the stimulants used to treat ADHD. 1: Sativex, a CBD / thc drug, has been shown to improve cognition and behavior in adults with ADHD.
Addiction to CBD may slow down the "rewards" that addicted brains receive from opiates. It also relieves withdrawal symptoms.
In states where cannabis is used, opioid overdose mortality has been reduced by almost 25 per cent.
Alzheimer's disease CBD has shown the potential to neutralize free radicals, reduce brain inflammation and fight against oxidation, so it has neuroprotective potential.
We interviewed a researcher who suggested that "taking a breath every day may make Alzheimer's go away."
Marijuana has been used to reduce anxiety for centuries. Although thc may increase anxiety, CBD has a positive effect on generalized anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Arthritis CBD can help reduce inflammatory pain associated with arthritis.
CBD in asthma may help to fight against airway hyperactivity and asthma.
In addition to fighting epilepsy, CBD may contribute to aggressive behavior, repetitive behavior, hyperactivity and social problems.
CBD, an autoimmune disease, can alleviate pain associated with inflammation, but also promote the balance of the immune system.
Cancer CBD can help control chemotherapy-related symptoms, but it can also help inhibit tumor growth and metastasis.
Concussion and head injury CBD have neuroprotective effect, which may be helpful to the healing of brain injury.
Depression, mood disorders CBD can increase the body's exposure to serotonin and dopamine, helping to resist the feeling of sadness. The study also showed a link between brain inflammation and mood disorders.
Diabetic marijuana has a bright future in regulating body weight, preventing obesity and stabilizing blood sugar. CBD can also help with pain or improve the circulation of diabetes related counteracting symptoms.
Studies of eating disorders support a profound link between the endogenous cannabinoid system, the brain and eating disorders. CBD may help to prevent obesity or promote weight gain in the case of anorexia.
Antioxidants in inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) contribute to gut inflammation. A healthy endogenous cannabinoid system can also help regulate inflammation in the body. This indicates that CBD is a promising treatment for IBS.
Some studies on migraine have linked migraine with endogenous cannabinoid deficiency and abnormal inflammatory response, both of which can be treated by CBD.
Sativex is promising in the treatment of multiple sclerosis related symptoms.
Nausea, vomiting cannabinoids are antiemetics.
Neurodegenerative diseases, Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease have neuroprotective properties. CBD may help to prevent or delay the occurrence of some neurodegenerative diseases.
Various forms of marijuana have been used to treat pain for centuries. Evidence supports the use of cannabinoids as analgesics.
PTSD marijuana can help the brain eliminate traumatic memories or help a person deal with them. CBD shows commitment because it doesn't encourage dependence or abuse like marijuana.
Schizophrenic CBD can help reduce stress and may have the potential to fight psychosis.
Epilepsy CBD can reduce the frequency, intensity and duration of epilepsy.
CBD for dermatosis, acne, and psoriasis can help balance the immune system, control inflammation, and possibly prevent outbreaks.
Sleep disorder CBD may help to treat insomnia, but for some CBD it may help to improve alertness.
In addition to treating certain diseases, CBD may have preventive health benefits. This chart summarizes these potential benefits and is associated with medical research on each part of the body or disease.

You'll find some suggestions on the Internet. Marijuana is a magic antidote. If it's not blocking the government, it can help people. This evangelism is great for arousing excitement, but it's not very helpful for your health. It is important to remember that research is ongoing and human trials are limited. You should consult a healthcare professional before changing or discontinuing any medication. In other words, CBD also shows promise in treating multiple health conditions. These benefits include helping your body balance, relieving symptoms, and getting back to health.
Risks and side effects
CBD is safe in the World Health Organization. In addition, the side effects of CBD are less than many of the side effects of drugs traditionally used to treat the same condition.
But there is a risk of taking CBD or other cannabis derivatives.
The most common side effects are:
Anxiety and depression
Here are some questions to ask doctors about CBD.
Is CBD possible for my condition?
What are the risks of using CBD or other cannabis derivatives to treat my condition?
Will marijuana derivatives like CBD interfere with any drugs I'm currently taking?
How does the cost of marijuana derivative treatment compare with the drug I am currently taking?
Are there any journals or publications that can be recommended, where can I find more information or learn more about the experiences of patients like me?
Before deciding on your health and treatment plan, remember a few things.
There is evidence that CBD may have a positive effect on your health.
More research is needed to understand the potential and risks associated with CBD.
Do not stop taking or change medications without first talking to your doctor.
