What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD), is the name for one of over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. CBD is not psychoactive and therefore also does not "high". CBD is therefore not responsible for the classic state of intoxication associated with cannabis.

Ultimately, of course, this does not mean that CBD can immediately cure cancer, stop aging processes or make wounds disappear in seconds. It is, it should be emphasized, NO magic bullet for every physical or mental problem. Nevertheless, cannabionoids generally have numerous effects that cannot be dismissed out of hand, which have already been proven by a large number of studies.
Bone healing: 2015 came one study on rats at the 'University of Tel Aviv' and the 'Hebrew University of Jerusalem' to the conclusion that CBD at a significantly faster healing of fractures helps.
During the course of the study, fractured thighbones of rats, from treatment with CBD, grew back together faster than in the control group, who did not receive this. At the end of the treatment they were In addition, overall bone regeneration is more stable than the comparison group. Corresponding study results on humans are still pending.
Alzheimer: Cannabinoids are said to be in the human brain neuroprotective effect can unfold, which is why researchers are related to the effects of cannabis Alzheimer have dealt.
In a study it could be shown that there is a Prevention of the neurodegenerative process comes from cannabinoids.
At a university in Jerusalem, the effects of cannabinoids against Alzheimer's were also investigated on mice. Also in this study it was found that one Slowed down memory degeneration can be.

cancer: There have already been some studies on the effects of cannabinoids different types of cancer.

Investigations were carried out on the effect on brain tumors, breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, oral cancer, liver cancer and pancreatic cancer.
epilepsy: In 2014, 74 children and adolescents with epilepsy were treated with CBD in Israel between 1 and 18 years of age.
The patients received a dosage of between 1 and 20 milligrams per day per kilogram of body weight for an average of six months. The frequency of seizures was then closely monitored during the course of the study.
Impressive result: 89 percent of the patients suffered fewer seizures than usual. The parents of 13 children stated that between 75 and 100 percent fewer epileptic seizures occurred. There were 50 to 75 percent fewer seizures in 25 patients. In 9 patients there was still a reduction of 25 to 50 percent and in a total of 19 patients less than 25 percent. For the sake of completeness, it should be mentioned that the severity of the seizures increased in 5 patients, which is why the administration of CBD was discontinued in these cases.
Overall, it manifested itself during the study that there was one general improvement of behavior, general attention, language and communication as well as motor skills and sleep the patient came.
Pain management: In the case of chronic pain in particular, treatment with opioids is often the last resort. However, this is often associated with side effects and a physical search potential that should not be underestimated.

2016: In another Israeli study, researchers found that cannabis was harmful to both the Pain intensity of the subjects as well as theirs Reduce consumption of opiates can. The quality of life of the patients improved significantly.
