CBD Oil May Be What the Doctor Ordered for Your Brain Health

This year sure has been one for the books!

I’m feeling it on my end too.  Despite all the hardship, I’ve been working hard on a few new projects.  And I’m getting excited about some newer treatments that are starting to gain popularity.

One of the most interesting new treatments I get asked about is cannabidiol (CBD oil). For the longest time, hemp-derived CBD was grouped together with medical marijuana.  It was illegal in most places and taboo to talk about.

But things are changing and more people are becoming interested in the wide variety of health benefits it can provide.  Best of all, ever since December 2018, CBD products are legal in all 50 states!

Today, I’d like to talk to you about the brain benefits of these products. CBD oils may be a great addition to your routine to help protect against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Bring Your Body and Mind Back into Balance

First off, let’s clear something up…

CBD is not the same thing as medical marijuana.  Yes, they both come from the Cannabis Sativa plant.  This is a plant that has been used by cultures around the world for centuries.

NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE Study
Proves You Can Restore 10 To 20 Years of Aging

Research suggests that low levels of HGH could trigger many of the signs we associate with aging.

The very best way to boost your natural HGH levels is by taking natural HGH releasers. These nutrients include specific vitamins, antioxidants and amino-acids that activate the pituitary gland to support production of HGH naturally.

They're taken before bedtime, because they help you gently to sleep and because sleep is when growth hormone is primarily secreted.

So far, more than 400 chemical compounds have been pulled from the Cannabis sativa plant.  CBD is just one of those chemicals. But, unlike the THC in medical marijuana, CBD does not cause psychotic effects. [1]

Instead, it can be a powerful protector for your brain health.  Researchers have been studying how it benefits your nervous system.

One of the main reasons why we have brain diseases is because of oxidative stresses.  They play a crucial role in the aging process.  When free radicals attack brain cells it leads to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. [2]

(That’s why I’m always encouraging you to eat foods filled with antioxidants.  Blueberries are my favorite!)

CBD also helps with a part of your brain called the endocannabinoid system. [3] The endocannabinoid system helps regulate and balance many processes throughout your body.  For instance, it helps balance the immune system, appetite, metabolism, and memory.

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system to help with things like mood disorders, anxiety, and neurodegenerative disorders.

In fact, CBD was observed to cause the growth and development of nervous tissue inside the brain.[4]  This is good news for people concerned about dementia.

It can help protect against Alzheimer’s[5] and ward off problems from Parkinson’s disease.[6]

Since it changes how the brain reacts to stress, CBD can be a powerful tool to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress.  This helps people who are dealing with panicked emotions associated with anxiety disorders, [7] panic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders or even PTSD.

It has also been widely applauded as a treatment for people who suffer from seizures due to epilepsy. [8]  There is a drug available from Big Pharma, called Epidiolex, which was released in July 2018 for this exact purpose.

The World's Quickest Solution for Ending Prostate and Urinary Misery

This has recently been revealed to be one of the only real breakthroughs in prostate health.

The seeds of a strange fruit (sometimes called "Chinese Apples") hold powerful phytonutrients that are a revolution in prostate health.

In fact, UCLA and Veterans Administration research have now proved this to be true.

Not only that, but it may be the worlds quickest solution for ending prostate misery.

Simply stated, these phytonutrients represent a huge step beyond beta sitosterol, saw palmetto, and other phytosterols alone.

Finally, CBD has shown a lot of promise as a treatment for people who are suffering from multiple sclerosis. [9] It can help relieve the chronic pain associated with this disease.[10]

Overall, the high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties make this a winner in my book.  It has excellent safety results in clinical studies.

There’s a Right Way and a Wrong Way to Try These Products

If you’re looking for a product to add CBD to your routine, I have a few pieces of advice.

First off, be careful where you get your products. It’s a bit of a Wild West out there when it comes to your options.

You’ll see things like CBD ice cream, gummies, and lollipops flooding the market.  Really, it’s just a lot of creative marketing and not worth your time or money.

You should also stay away from the synthetic versions of CBD.  They come along with a host of nasty side effects which you don’t want to mess with.  They can negatively affect your mental state, cause psychosis, and even cause your kidneys to shut down.[11]

Instead, look in your pharmacy for CBD oil that can be dropped under your tongue.  You want to get something that has 1,000 milligrams per bottle and each bottle has 30 milliliters.  That way, one full milliliter has at least 30-33 milligrams of CBD.  That’s a low, normal amount to try.

There are also some products out there that are 100% USDA organic hemp in the form of a cigarette with organic filter paper. It’s free of the chemicals that make normal tobacco cigarettes so bad for you.

Creams are another option as they allow the CBD to absorb directly into your skin.
