    BIOGRAPHY

Abstract

Many people are using CBD effectively as part of their daily treatment for various ailments across the globe,  what is all the hype about CBD/THC and why is it being touted as a wonder medicine?! It is still considered controversial and there is confusion about what it is and how it can help the human body.  As of now the FDA has approved just one purified form of CBD, Epilodex which can be used to treat two types of epilepsy.  CBD is just one of many compounds found in the marijuana plant, known as cannabinoids.  Plenty of research is currently being done regarding the therapeutic uses of CBD. CBD is the non psychoactive compound found in marijuana and does not appear to produce significant changes to the body but it does appear to have health benefits.  As far as we know THC binds to CB1 receptors in the brain which relate to coordination, movement, pain, emotions, mood, thinking, appetite, memories as well as other functions.  CB2 receptors are mostly found in our immune systems and they affect pain and inflammation.  But instead of attaching to these receptors CBD seems to cause the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.  Someone put it this way~  CBD does not make you feel good so much as it just makes you not feel bad. 

Learning Objectives:

1. Understanding CBD/THC ratios in medical marijuana.  
2. When to utilize a high CBD low THC cannabis product to treat disease processes.
