WHAT IS CBD?
60 to 90 minutes
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100 plant chemicals called cannabinoids that come from the plant genus Cannabis.
CBD and other cannabinoids are very similar to chemicals we naturally produce in our bodies, called endocannabinoids. This enables them to support the function of the body in many useful ways.

Arthritis is a condition in which individuals experience inflammation of one or more joints. This leads to symptoms like: swelling, pain, stiffness, redness around joints and disrupted motion.
Current arthritis medications help reduce inflammation of the joints. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can provide similar effects and it may be able to stop the disease from getting worse over time.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that affects the entire body through the nerves and brain. Muscle spasms are one of the most common symptoms of MS. These spasms can cause constant pain in some people.
One report found that short-term use of CBD oil could reduce the levels of spasticity a person feels. The results are modest, but many people reported a reduction in symptoms.
A separate study in the Journal of Experimental Medicine supports these results. This research suggests that using CBD can reduce pain and inflammation. The researchers also found that subjects were not likely to build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD, so they would not need to increase their dose continually.

c) HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?
CBD can have many beneficial effects throughout the body all at once. How? because it controls a system that is widespread throughout the body. It’s called the Endocannabinoid system (‘endo’- inside; within). Basically, the body’s own cannabinoid system.
The Endocannabinoid system controls core bodily functions including:
• Appetite, Digestion, Immune function, Inflammation, Mood, Sleep, Reproduction / fertility, Motor control, Temperature regulation, Memory, Pain, Pleasure/reward.
“Because CBD can modulate the Endocannabinoid system, it can change how the whole body works.”
