The 7 Most Beneficial CBD Discoveries In History

What is CBD good for?  There’s so many things, and many of them relate to the Endocannabinoid System!  This article is about CBD for #seizures #alzheimers #pain #cancer #anxiety #PTSD and Substance Abuse.  See more at www.cbdoil.life and @

There seem to be four groups of people in this world regarding cannabidiol (CBD). People either believe it has no beneficial health purposes, people don’t know what it is, people think it’s “too good to be true”, or people see the benefits of it and believe in its ability to better people’s individual lives. While no plant, herb, or medicine can heal everything, there is plenty of evidence showing major benefits of CBD. So, what are the eight most beneficial discoveries ever made about its medical value? These are in no particular order, but are all important to the continued study of CBD and its benefits to people.

  • Seizures

One of the most well studied benefits of CBD is that of it’s anti-convulsive properties. It has been shown to lower the seizure threshold in many people. As this study from PubMed explains, CBD not only reduces seizure severity, but also showed that CBD significantly decreased the percentage of rodents that were experiencing the most complex and severe seizures. Additionally, “CBD (≥ 10 mg/kg) significantly decreased the percentage mortality as a result of seizures.”

In conclusion of this study, it is said that “the evidence strongly supports CBD as a therapeutic candidate for a diverse range of human epilepsies.”

  • Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder known to man. Another study from PubMed describes how it works for those struggling with this disease. It states, “Cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive marijuana component, has been recently proposed as an antioxidant neuroprotective agent in neurodegenerative diseases. Moreover, it has been shown to rescue PC12 cells from toxicity induced by Abeta peptide.”

The study also showed that CBD inhibits hyperphosphyrylation of the tau protein in Abeta-stimulated PC12 neuronal cells. While this sounds super complex, and it is, the important part to know is that CBD helps to slow, or stop, the most representative hallmarks in alzheimer’s disease.

The study concludes by stating, “These results provide new molecular insight regarding the neuroprotective effect of cannabidiol and suggest its possible role in the pharmacological management of AD, especially in view of its low toxicity in humans.”

  • Pain Relief

In a study from 2015, CBD was tested to see if it showed synergistic effects (a greater effect when combined with another agent, then when tested separately) when combined with morphine. When tested alone, morphine “produced antinociceptive effects in all three models of acute nociception, whereas CBD alone produced antinociception only in the acetic acid-stimulated stretching assay.” The study does claim that CBD and morphine did in fact produce synergistic effects in reversing acetic acid-stimulated stretching behavior.

This study concluded that these results “suggest that distinct mechanisms of action underlie the interactions between CBD and morphine in the three different behavioral assays and that the choice of appropriate combination therapies for the treatment of acute pain conditions may depend on the underlying pain type and stimulus modality.”

  • Anti-Tumor Medicine

Cancer is one of the most well known problems in America. There are endless theories about what can cause cancer, and how to prevent it. However, there are not very many options for treating it once a person has developed it. This study from 2015 discusses how CBD works as an anti-tumor medicine. Before discussing CBD specifically, this study mentions that “CB1 and CB2 receptor agonists can act as direct antitumor agents in a variety of aggressive cancers.”

When animals were tested, CBD was shown to inhibit the progression of several different types of cancer including, breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and glioblastoma. This study discusses two major points. The first is the “mechanisms by which CBD, and other plant-derived cannabinoids inefficient at activating cannabinoid receptors, inhibit tumor cell viability, invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis, and the stem-like potential of cancer cells.”

The second is the “ability of non-psychoactive cannabinoids to induce autophagy and apoptotic-mediated cancer cell death, and enhance the activity of first-line agents commonly used in cancer treatment.” In other words, CBD can cause bad cells to consume themselves, or it can cause good cells to tag bad ones for scheduled death, causing them to “commit suicide”.

  • Anxiety

There are numerous studies showing that CBD may be an effective treatment for those with anxiety. Most people fear public speaking more than they do death. The first study dissects how CBD reduces the anxiety that is stimulated by public speaking. It states:

“Pretreatment with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort in their speech performance, and significantly decreased alert in their anticipatory speech. The placebo group presented higher anxiety, cognitive impairment, discomfort, and alert levels when compared with the control group as assessed with the Visual Analogue Mood Scale (VAMS). The Negative Self-Statement Scale (SSPS-N) scores evidenced significant increases during the testing of placebo group that was almost abolished in the CBD group. No significant differences were observed between CBD and HC in SSPS-N scores or in the cognitive impairment, discomfort, and alert factors of VAMS. The increase in anxiety induced by the Simulation Public Speaking Test (SPST) on subjects with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) was reduced with the use of CBD, resulting in a similar response as the healthy control.”

In short, the study found that pretreatment with CBD help reduce the anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort of public speaking significantly in people who have a phobia of this.

  • PTSD

In a second study related to anxiety and PTSD, CBD was studied to see what impact, if any, it had on people suffering from PTSD. In this study, 48 participants were involved with a double-blind study involving colored boxes and electrical shocks. Some of the boxes were electrified, and others weren’t. Then, two days later, the participants were exposed to the boxes again. Some of the participants were given CBD, and some a placebo. The study concluded that these findings, “provide the first evidence that CBD can enhance consolidation of extinction learning in humans and suggest that CBD may have potential as an adjunct to extinction-based therapies for anxiety disorders.”

  • Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is often described as one of the hardest things to fight off. People often try multiple times to “shake a habit” and to no avail. In this study by PubMed, it was examined whether CBD would inhibit the reward-facilitating effect of Morphine.

“Rats were prepared with a stimulating electrode into the medial forebrain bundle (MFB), and a guide cannula into the dorsal raphe (microinjection experiments), and were trained to respond for electrical brain stimulation. A low dose of cannabidiol did not affect the reinforcing efficacy of brain stimulation, whereas higher doses significantly elevated the threshold frequency required for MFB ICSS. Both cocaine and morphine lowered ICSS thresholds. Cannabidiol inhibited the reward-facilitating effect of morphine, but not cocaine.”

So, in short, these results suggest that CBD does interfere with brain reward mechanisms that are responsible for the expression of the acute reinforcing properties within opioids. This indicates that CBD may be useful in reducing the rewarding effects of opioids.

New Study Shows Benefits of CBD For Seizures

CBD for Seizures, Cannabinoids for Epilepsy, Research showing the potential benefits of CBD for these issues - see more at That's Natural www.cbdoil.life

There has been a lot of smaller studies, individual testimonials, and even media coverage about CBD’s impact on seizures. The New England Journal of Medicine just published the results of a recent study showing the impact of CBD on Dravet Syndrome. Dravet Syndrome is a complex childhood epilepsy disorder that is often associate with high mortality rates and is often shown to be drug resistant.

In this double-blind study, 120 children and young adults with Dravet syndrome and drug resistant seizures received either cannabidiol (CBD) or a placebo – in addition to other standard antiepileptic treatment. The goal was to see what difference there was over a 14 week period of time. The results were remarkably good. Not only did the average frequency of seizures decrease from 12.4 per month to 5.9 per month with CBD, but,

“The percentage of patients who had at least a 50% reduction in convulsive-seizure frequency was 43% with cannabidiol and 27% with placebo (odds ratio, 2.00; 95% CI, 0.93 to 4.30; P=0.08). The patient’s overall condition improved by at least one category on the seven-category Caregiver Global Impression of Change scale in 62% of the cannabidiol group as compared with 34% of the placebo group (P=0.02). The frequency of total seizures of all types was significantly reduced with cannabidiol (P=0.03), but there was no significant reduction in nonconvulsive seizures. The percentage of patients who became seizure-free was 5% with cannabidiol and 0% with placebo (P=0.08).”

In other words, seizures decreased, and 5% of subjects had no more seizures at all. It was noted that some of those on CBD experienced some side effects including diarrhea and fatigue. Most people would agree that those aren’t horrible side effects when compared with other pharmaceutical drugs. It should also be noted that some people do experience these type of side effects when given large amounts of CBD. These subjects were taking 20mg’s per kg of bodyweight.

CBD, The Endocannabinoid System, and Impacts on Alzheimer’s Disease

CBD for Alzheimer's Disease - Cannabinoids for Dementia - Research and News on the Endocannabinoid System from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

Most neuro-inflammatory disorders like Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and multiple sclerosis have had more studies completed showing how cannabidiol (CBD) may help them. Because of the complexity of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), and the poor availability of animal models that are relevant to the human disease, this isn’t entirely true.

However, there are still several studies showing how beneficial the endocannabinoid system, and compounds like CBD can be. One study explains that a deficiency in CB1 receptors can cause an acceleration in AD symptoms. So, it can be concluded that by feeding our body more cannabinoids, like CBD, these receptors would be more efficient. It states, “the findings indicate that CB1 deficiency can worsen AD-related cognitive deficits and support a potential role of CB1 as a pharmacologic target.”

In a more specific example of the endocannabinoid system, this study describes its role with alzheimer’s disease. It claims that as with the other neuro-inflammatory disorders, the endocannabinoid system may play a similar role. It states:

“the available data indicate that endocannabinoids are likely to play in this disorder a role similar to that suggested in other neurodegenerative diseases, that is, to represent an endogenous adaptive response aimed at counteracting both the neurochemical and inflammatory consequences of beta-amyloid-induced tau protein hyperactivity, possibly the most important underlying cause of AD. Furthermore, plant and synthetic cannabinoids, and particularly the non-psychotropic cannabidiol, might also exert other, non-cannabinoid receptor-mediated protective effects, including, but not limited to, anti-oxidant actions.”

It goes on to say “This might open the way to the use of cannabinoid receptor antagonists as therapeutic drugs for the treatment of cognitive deficits in the more advanced phases of this disorder.”

Although more research is needed to say conclusively whether it has a major positive impact on those suffering from AD, the evidence that does exist seems very promising.

Cannabinoids Now Targets for Melanoma Treatment

Cannabinoids for Melanoma, CBD for melanomas, phytocannabinoids for the Endocannabinoid System - Research on CB1 and CB2 receptors and CBD for skin cancer - see more at That's Natural www.cbdoil.life

Melanoma causes more deaths than any other type of skin cancer worldwide. We probably all know someone that has suffered from skin cancer, and possibly even melanoma. The Skin Cancer Foundation even shows that someone dies of melanoma every 54 minute. Despite melanoma accounting for a very small portion of skin cancer cases, it accounts for nearly all of the skin cancer related deaths.

In this study, the reasons for why cannabinoids were effective against melanoma. The study states:

“Human melanomas and melanoma cell lines express CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. Activation of these receptors decreased growth, proliferation, angiogenesis and metastasis, and increased apoptosis, of melanomas in mice. Cannabinoid antimelanoma activity was independent of the immune status of the animal, could be achieved without overt psychoactive effects and was selective for melanoma cells vs. normal melanocytes. Cannabinoid antiproliferative action on melanoma cells was due, at least in part, to cell cycle arrest at the G1-S transition via inhibition of the prosurvival protein Akt and hypophosphorylation of the pRb retinoblastoma protein tumor suppressor.”

So, in short, the mice that had melanomas and were treated with CBD saw a decrease in the bad (growth, proliferation, angiogenesis and metasis), and an increase in the good (apoptosis). Apoptosis is simply scheduled cell death. So, the cancer cell growth was slowed, and the cancer cell death was increased. This is far different than other methods for cancer treatment like chemotherapy where everything is killed (including good cells).

Each person has an endocannabinoid system, which is fueled by a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes. Because our products have these cannabinoids and terpenes, they are known to be full spectrum products. These full spectrum products help provide an entourage effect.

CBD For Migraines – Can It Really Work?

CBD for Migraines from Thats Natural, V2.jpg

This article from HealthLine discusses what CBD is, how it may work for migraines, some different research articles, how to use it for migraines, and potential side effects. First, it is important to understand what a Migraine is. Migraines are more than a typical stress or tension headache. They typically last between 4 and 72 hours. Pain killers may help alleviate the symptoms for a brief amount of time, a lot of people have become concerned with the known side effects of these drugs.

Insert CBD here! The article from HealthLine points to a couple of research studies, the first of which is from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This study explored the positive effects of cannabis products. Although cannabis, by itself was not researched, it was studies when coupled with either ibuprofen or nabilone. At the end of the study, the reports showed a better quality of life when taking the cannabis-nabilone formula.

In 2016, PubMed released a study that concluded by saying the frequency of migraines was decreased with CBD usage.

So how does CBD work? It works by interacting with cells in the brain and nervous system. These molecules are called cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). Although the reason isn’t fully understood, CBD is believed to affect the immune system. As an example, CBD may prevent the body from metabolizing anandamide – a compound associated with pain regulation. Very simply, the higher level of anandamides in your bloodstream, the less pain you feel. So, by decreasing your body’s ability to metabolize of these compounds, pain levels will often decrease.

So how can CBD oil help with migraines? The National Cancer Institute (NCI) claims CBD has been used for about 3,000 years in alternative medicine. Some of the largest reasons is for pain management, neurological symptoms, and inflammation. There aren’t currently any formal guidelines for dosing CBD for migraines, but the suggestion commonly made is to start small, and build up until you notice a difference. A lot of this will depend on how quickly each person’s body metabolizes the CBD and how sensitive they are to it.

Side effects and risks of CBD are minimal. Because CBD is known to be bi-phasic in terms of sleep cycle, some people will become drowsy using it. Bi-phasic simply means small amounts wake you up, and larger amounts will have a more sedating effect.

Professional Athletes Vouch For CBD Use Over Opioids

Professional athletes are turning to, or wanting to turn to CBD instead of opioids - Full Spectrum CBD Oil products from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

So many professional athletes are using, many times wrongfully so, painkillers. A study published by Drug and Alcohol Dependence stated that 52% of 644 retired NFL players admitted to using prescription pain meds while they were still playing the game. 71% of those people admitted that they misused the drugs, and many of them continued to do so into retirement. That means that almost 40% of NFL players are misusing pain meds.

Many of these professional athletes are turning to, or wanting to turn to CBD instead of opioids. One example of this is Bas Rutten – an MMA fighter who was a UFC heavyweight champion and three-time King of Pancrase world champion. In this article, Rutten said:

“As for my own experience with CBD, it saved me a lot of trouble after I realized that I had a painkiller problem that started after my last fight in 2006. About five weeks before the fight, all my injuries came back with a vengeance. It starts with one pill, then it becomes two, four, seven, ten, and slowly but surely, you are upping the count, and before you know it, you’re taking insane amounts of painkillers.”

During Rutten’s career, he fought with pain med addiction, and he started using Oxycontin after his doctor told him that Vicodin would damage his liver. However, after some time, Oxycontin stopped working as well. “What I want to say is that if there would have been CBD at that time, I might have not become addicted to painkillers. I really hope that all fighters and other athletes will use CBD instead of painkillers” Rutten said.

MMA fighters aren’t the only ones using, or trying to use CBD instead of opioids. This article from Forbes discusses a few NFL players that have tried using CBD in place of opioids. This article states that Seantrel Henderson, offensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills, has tried using it as well.

“After being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, which involves inflammation of the bowel, Henderson says that he began using CBD to treat the pain that he suffered from the disease. In a series of interviews, he noted that doctors recommended CBD because painkillers would have been harmful to his intestines and recovery. Following doctors’ orders, he started using CBD to treat the disease and was suspended twice by the NFL. Henderson’s suspension for using a doctor proscribed medicine to treat a disease has been a core component of the argument of CBD advocates for modification of the NFL’s drug policy.”

Jake Plummer is the former quarterback of the Denver Broncos who was also mentioned in this article. He claims that he has started using CBD oil for pain relief due to the number of injuries he received during the years he played. He credits CBD in helping him with these injuries, as well as avoiding the addictive painkillers.

Finally, Steve Kerr, the Golden State Warriors head coach recently provided similar thoughts on the use of CBD for chronic pain. He also has encouraged the NBA to look at removing it from its banned substance list.

Because That’s Natural products contain cannabinoids and terpenes it is considered full spectrum. The combination of these compounds help to provide what is known as the entourage effect.

Why Cannabinoids May Be An Effective Treatment For Glaucoma

Cannabinoids for Glaucoma, CBD for Glaucoma - Research and News from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

Glaucoma is the second leading cause for blindness globally, and according to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, most never see it coming. Around 50% of the people that have glaucoma don’t know they have it. That means over 30 million people worldwide don’t know they have a disease that may cause them to go blind. Interestingly, blindness only came after cancer and heart disease as people’s major fear.

Glaucoma can often occur without any symptoms, and only 20% of people knew that it was related to elevated pressure within the eye. While these are some scary facts, cannabinoids may be an effective treatment according to this study. The abstract from this study states that:

“Cannabinoids effectively lower the intraocular pressure (IOP) and have neuroprotective actions. Thus, they could potentially be useful in the treatment of glaucoma. The purpose of this article is to provide the reader with an overview of the latest achievements in research into the potential use of cannabinoids for glaucoma.”

Remembering that glaucoma is caused by an increased pressure within the eye, the fact that cannabinoids effectively lowered the intraocular pressure is very encouraging.

Another study tested over thirty different cannabinoids and their ability to reduce intraocular pressure. All compounds were given intravenously, and a few were given topically. It also concluded that cannabinoids were active in reducing intraocular pressure, and nearly all of them had some measurable activity.

Each person has an endocannabinoid system, which is fueled by a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes.

What CBD Can Potentially Do For You

Cannabinoids for Health - Full Spectrum CBD-Rich Hemp Oil from That's Natural at www.cbdoil.life

A lot of people ask what CBD can do for their bodies. There are a lot of different answers, but here are a few of the top benefits of using it.

  • CBD activates several receptors and ion channels. Some of these include: Adensodine receptors (regulate neurotransmitters dopamine and glutamate), serotonin (mood regulation), and even vanilloid receptors (which control body temperature, inflammation, and the ability to feel pain).
  • CBD deactivates GPR55, which helps control blood pressure, bone density, and cancer cell growth.
  • CBD inhibits the “reuptake” and breakdown of neurotransmitters like anandaminde, and delays the reuptake of adensodine which has anti-anxiety properties.
  • CBD can impact alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease through G-coupled protein receptors
  • CBD can activate PPAR’s on cancerous cells, which induces tumor regression, but may also be used to treat alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and other metabolic functions.
  • CBD can amplify our bodies ability to transmit gamma-Aminobutyric acid. Additionally, it can act as a “negative allosteric modulator” of the CB1 receptor to reduce the psychoactive effects of THC.

CBD and Its Antipsychotic Properties

Brain Health - Full Spectrum CBD-Rich Hemp Oil from That's Natural, V1

CBD is being shown to help with a multiple variety of issues. Dr. David Allen, a retired cardiac surgeon said in this video, “The endocannabinoid system is the single most important, medical, scientific discovery ever, and will save more lives than the study and application of sterile surgical technique. I’m a heart surgeon saying that.”

The National Institutes of Health estimates that nearly 6% of people with psychotic disorders will commit suicide. So, what if CBD can really help those people with psychotic disorders establish a healthy balance in their life? This would be a change from current antipsychotic drugs. Current medications treat mainly the positive symptoms, and have a low therapeutic efficacy against the negative and cognitive symptoms according to this study by Science Direct.

Alterations in the endocannabinoid system seem to be implicated in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. The study claims that “CBD – a nonpsychotromimetic compound of cannabis – emerges as a potential new therapeutic strategy for schizophrenia.

Amazingly, this study goes deeper. It claims that:

“CBD seems able to treat the positive symptoms of schizophrenia, and represents an advance with regard to the existing antipsychotics, since it might also be effective against the negative and cognitive symptoms. Moreover, significant side effects are not seen with cannabidiol treatment. However, despite the auspicious evidence, further clinical and preclinical studies are still necessary to strengthen CBD’s antipsychotic profile.”

One interesting idea to note here is the sentence, “Moreover, significant side effects are not seen with cannabidiol treatment.” Those that have taken pharmaceutical drugs for psychosis are aware of the multitude of side effects that include, but are not limited to: dry mouth, feeling restless or anxious, insomnia, headaches, numbness or tingling of the mouth, trouble swallowing, shuffling walk, severe muscle spasms, incontinence, and memory problems.

Although more research is needed, it is encouraging to see what studies are coming out regarding CBD and psychotic disorders. If Dr. David Allen is correct, there is much to be seen in how this amazing compound of CBD will be used in years to come.
