CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a substance found in cannabis and hemp, with powerful preventive and curative properties for some of our most serious diseases. It doesn’t matter whether it is derived from cannabis or hemp, they both come from the same plant genus – Cannabis Sativa L. The USFDA currently considers the hemp plant, with less than .03% THC, including its CBD, to be “food based” and therefore saleable, and no medical card is needed.
Clinical studies have shown that CBD is an effective painkiller – particularly for peripheral neuropathy associated with cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, arthritis, and other neurodegenerative conditions. Extensive preclinical research indicates that CBD has potent anti-tumoral, antioxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsive, and neuroprotective properties, and directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-depressant effect as well.
How does it work? CBD directly activates the 5-HT1A, serotonin receptor, thereby giving an anti-depressant effect. The 5-HT1A receptor is implicated in a range of biological and neurological processes, including, anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea and vomiting. CBD also binds to the TRPV-1 receptor, which is known to mediate pain perception, inflammation and body temperature.
With more antioxidant potency than either vitamin C or E, CBD has consistently demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is enormous. CBD has been shown to suppress colon cancer tumors in mice and to kill breast cancer cells in lab studies. Sean McAllister,PhD at California Pacific Medical Center said “CBD could spell the end of breast cancer,” and claims it could render chemotherapy and radiation a distant 2nd and 3rd options for cancer patients. “Cannabidiol offers hope of a non-toxic therapy that could treat aggressive forms of cancer without any of the painful side effects of chemotherapy,” says McAllister..”
The images above are from an experiment by McAllister testing how CBD can stop the invasion of cancer cells in human cell lines. Compare the untreated breast cancer cells on the left to the breast cancer cells destroyed by CBD on the right.
The CBD used by Fruit of the Earth Organics IS derived from European organic hemp using CO2 extraction. This high quality extraction process preserves heat-sensitive vitamins, enzymes or nutrients that are often lost using other extraction methods. Recently tested by the premier cannabinoid laboratory in the world in Israel, our CBD was found to be 99.93% pure CBD, and is now purchased by this laboratory for their research.
