CBD and Medical Marijuana are they just a modern day "Gold Rush" ?

Here are just a few of the illnesses they have been shown to Benefit:

CBD and Medical Marijuana literally are the modern day "Gold Rush", there are hundreds of online stores offering to sell you supposedly full spectrum CBD and Medical Marijuana Products that are the answer to all your prayers. Not to mention the many high street stores here in the UK stocking supposedly High Quality CBD Tinctures and Edibles. Unfortunately, many of these are not the correct product they may have trace amounts of CBD and even offer a little benefit but that is where it ends. 

Beneficial Herbs is firstly a place to gain information on all things CBD. For example, its uses such as conditions it has been shown to improve or eradicate completely, how it actually helps our bodies, correct usage (this makes a huge difference to it`s effectiveness) and many more interesting facts and explanations that are important for you to know and understand if you are to give yourself the best chance of success with CBD.

At Beneficial Herbs, we literally spend hundreds of hours keeping ourselves up to date with any new advances and news there is to do with CBD, especially here in the UK. We care about people and we do truly believe in the power of Natural Medicines with our focus being on CBD and Medical Marijuana. 

They both have powerful healing properties but are different in that Medical Marijuana contains THC levels above the Legal 0.2 % in the UK. On the other hand, authentic legal CBD products contain less than the legal 0.2 % THC but all of the other Beneficial Molecules some 120 that are known to benefit us, with more being discovered all the time as increasing research is carried out.

Here are some of the many conditions CBD is known to benefit:

Pain: When CBD reaches a family of receptors, or cells that receive stimuli called vanilloid receptors, the interaction results in lower inflammation and levels and pain perception.

Anxiety and depression: Hundreds of studies have looked at how Cannabidiol might be used to treat various neuropsychiatric disorders. 

Epilepsy: Anecdotal reports about CBD’S use as a treatment for epilepsy have been around for decades, and a handful of rigorous scientific studies seem to support these claims.

Symptoms related to cancer treatment: The focus on CBD for cancer treatment has been for its use in reducing the nausea and vomiting that often accompany chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Acne and other skin issues: A study published in July 2014 suggested topical CBD can be a potent anti-acne agent, likely because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

High blood pressure: Researchers in England studied the effects of CBD on a small group of healthy men aged 19 to 29 — all nonsmokers who had never used cannabis — and discovered a single dose of CBD reduced resting blood pressure.

Addiction: As ironic as it sounds, CBD has shown a lot of promise in fighting addiction to everything from opioids and cocaine to alcohol and tobacco.

Diabetes: A number of studies have suggested that CBD could play a role in improving outcomes for people with diabetes. Observational studies have shown that people who use marijuana have lower fasting insulin levels and measures of insulin resistance.

Some of the many conditions Medical Marijuana is known to benefit:

Multiple sclerosis:  Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms vary both in type and severity, but typically include pain, spasms, balance issues, tingling, vision problems and more. Research published in the Multiple Sclerosis Journal found that cannabis based medicinal extracts can significantly reduce the spasticity and pain associated with multiple sclerosis, while having few adverse effects on patients.

Spinal cord injuries:  Spinal cord injuries caused by trauma to the spine, spinal cord injuries are known to affect motor skills and can potentially lead to total loss function in some parts of the body. Research suggests, cannabis can help patients treat the pain and muscle spasms that are often symptomatic of a spinal cord injury.

Spinal cord disease:  Spinal cord disease refers to any spinal cord issues that develop for reasons other than trauma. Multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, syringomyelia and spinal stenosis can all be considered examples of spinal cord disease. Patients living with a spinal cord disease may find therapeutic value in using cannabis based medicine, thanks to cannabis’ ability to alleviate spasticity and pain – two of the most common symptoms associated with spinal cord disease.

Cancer:  Cancer is the leading cause of death in most countries. While we cannot yet say cannabis cures cancer, we can say it can drastically reduce the severity of symptoms and improve quality of life for patients. How? Well, research shows that both THC and CBD (two of the key active components found in cannabis) can stimulate appetite, which may help with the weight loss, anorexia and cachexia that many cancer patients experience. In addition, cannabis is very effective at combating the nausea caused by conventional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.

HIV/Aids: HIV/Aids treatment has come a long way over the last decade or so. While modern therapy allows those with HIV/AIDS to live a long and mostly healthy life, the side effects of the treatment can be challenging to deal with. This is where medicinal cannabis comes in. A number of studies show that medical cannabis can improve many HIV/AIDS-related symptoms, including anorexia, weight loss, severe nausea and more.

Arthritis: Arthritis is an umbrella term that refers to the inflammation of a joint. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, with some of the more common types including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Symptoms typically include swelling and redness around the joint, reduced range of motion, stiffness, weakness and severe, ongoing pain. It’s the latter symptom that cannabis is most effective at treating.

Epilepsy: Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects literally 1000's of people. The disorder is characterised by seizures, which range from relatively mild (a moment of impaired concentration) to extreme (total loss of consciousness and awareness). Cannabis based medicines – and CBD-dominant products in particular – have proven to be very effective at reducing the frequency and severity of epilepsy seizures.

Inflammatory bowel disease: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) describes disorders that result in inflammation of the digestive tract, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Research found that IBD patients experienced a variety of health benefits from using cannabis. Factors such as physical pain, social functioning, general health perception, ability to work and depression all saw notable improvement.

End of life care: End of life Care studies have shown that medicinal cannabis may also be an effective treatment option in palliative care, which could be vital in the years ahead as many nations come to terms with ageing populations. Research found that medical cannabis could “provide further relief from distressing symptoms and spiritual suffering”, while improving patients’ overall quality of life.

Insomnia: Insomnia research indicates that both THC- and CBD-dominant cannabis based medicines offer effective therapy for a range of sleep disorders, including insomnia. Cannabis is thought to reduce sleep latency, induce drowsiness and improve quality of sleep.
