Incorporate CBD to your habitual diet
Cannabidiol is what CBD stands for and now there seems to be benefits associated with it being incorporated as part of a daily diet. Cannabinoids are being known now for wonderful healing properties and even from home, with the right materials you can make a simple smoothie or even have a CBD extract ready to apply.
What are the different effects if I consume raw Cannabis over smoking?
Cannabis only becomes psychoactive when heated, otherwise you will not experience the high effect. All of the other available cannabinoids can be benefitted from for the body. Fresh Cannabis can be juiced and made into a smoothie and be made part of a daily diet. Of course it may not be so easy to obtain fresh plants but the same benefits can be found in a hemp plant oil press which is CBD rich. So you can obtain all of the other elements within the plant without being high which is ideal for those who may not use Cannabis recreationally.
So is it better to ingest Cannabis then for the antioxidant effect?
When Cannabis enters the system and the body is flushed with a plethora of cannabinoids and terpenes, a strong antioxidant effect is triggered within the body. The anti oxidising helpers repair damaged cells from the body and improve the cells. To really get the best healing compounds from Cannabis extract the plant to make butter or oil.
Will CBD help me to lose weight?
Ghrelin is the chemical responsible for giving you the munchies and is induced by THC. Of course THC on its own is marvellous for an increased appetite, although CBD actually suppresses the urge for the Ghrelin receptor. So if you look at it from a health perspective, CBD is rich in nutrients and as well as the other medical long term benefits, in the short term will not make you raid the fridge and cupboards. I personally discovered that CBD oil is a very good tool for losing weight after using it for several weeks and it certainly counteracted any urges for food.
CBD can help with inflammation?
When cannabis is being consumed recreationally, then the strongest strain is highly sought after. When using for medical relief, the instant reduction in inflammation can feel like a miracle has taken place. Usually the first time they have not needed to take a concoction of pharmaceutical pills either and feel a natural relief.
“ This study demonstrates for the first time that MDSCs play a critical role in attenuating acute inflammation in the liver, and that agents such as CBD, which trigger MDSCs through activation of TRPV1 vanilloid receptors may constitute a novel therapeutic modality to treat inflammatory diseases. “

CBD and Liver Disease
Further medical research from the Department of Pathology revealed that CBD is used to treat liver disease and prevent certain stages of disease occurring. Their studies revealed that CB1 and CB2 play a big part in the Liver function and defense.
“ Although the expression of these receptors is very low or even absent in the healthy liver, a considerable series of experimental studies and some clinical observations have recognised the Endocannabinoid system as an important player in the pathophysiology of liver diseases. “
U.S. Department of Health & Human Services proves CBD is necessary
The text below is taken from a research project that looked into the medical benefits and advantages of CBD as part of a daily diet, in this case for chronic pain.
CANNABINOID RECEPTOR AGONISTS FOR TREATMENT OF CHRONIC PAIN
“Chronic pain can result from various disease conditions and about 45% of the U. S. population seeks medical help for treatment of pain. Neuropathic pain is a type of chronic pain which is very difficult to treat, and most patients do not get adequate relief. A promising therapeutic drug target for the treatment of inflammation and pain is the cannabinoid CB2 receptor”
Edibles and Medibles
A good edible does not need to contain high doses of THC or CBD to be effective, as the physical effects are slower but long lasting. When a person consumes edibles, the body will break down the oil and the health benefits can be obtained. When making edibles you will want to not exceed baking temperatures of more than 150 degrees celsius and it is better to cook the edibles for longer on a lower heat, just to make sure the chemical compound within is as medicinal as can be. A CBD rich smoothie can suffice just as well and can be added to a normal smoothie at home.
