It is known that CBD – cannabidiol has great medical potential in the treatment of some serious diseases. My question in this article is whether it can also be useful for healthy people as a prevention. However, as my friend medicine man says „I have not met a healthy person yet“, in other words, everybody has something or some inclination. In order to answer this question, I have tried 5% CBD oil on myself for almost 2 months and I have prepared little research either.
CBD and endocannabinoid system
It is important to look at the endocannabinoid system first. This system is natural for all mammals. It consists of endogenous cannabinoid receptors and is located in the brain and the central and peripheral nervous systems.
The endocannabinoid system consists of 2 main receptors – CB1 and CB2 and are involved in basic life functions such as appetite, immune system, reproduction and pain management.
CBD works as an antagonist for CB1 and CB2 receptors, which means that CBD protects them against activation.
CBD basically calms our nervous system down
Most of modern diseases are connected with an extreme reaction of our organisms. Let's mention a few of them. Allergy, asthma, psoriasis, epilepsy, migraine, stress are all caused by an overreaction of our body.
And since CBD helps our organisms calm down it works as prevention against many civilization diseases. In other words, CBD protects our organisms, mainly the nervous and immune systems from an overreaction.
Two months of CBD prevention therapy
I am 35 years old man with common civilization problems as allergies, asthma, and eczema. No other serious diseases. I have tried 5% CBD oil for 2 months – 5 drops in the morning and 5 drops in the evening. I consumed two 10ml bottles.
The most obvious finding after the first week of therapy was that my sleep had improved significantly, which had many beneficial consequences. I was generally more relaxed and less stressed. In work, at home, everywhere. My eczema had also improved since it is very much connected with stress. I usually scratch myself when I am under pressure. The same applies for allergies. I have to say, that CBD as a prevention works very well and I continue to use it.
