Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that if you’re going to be selling something, you better be using it.
So what am I selling?
I’m Selling CBD Oil.
Why am I selling it?
Boy, that’s a good question. The simple answer is to make money, but like anything in this life.
It is, of course, a bit more complicated than that.
A couple years ago I first heard of CBD and it would take me about another year to actually understand the benefits of from the use of CDB oil and the drastic changes that can manifest in the body after taking a dose.
My first exposure to CBD was a video documenting this tincture called ‘Charlotte’s Web.’ In the video, I saw a desperate father and mother giving the ‘Charlotte’s Web’ CBD oil to their epileptic daughter and right before my eyes you could see the little girl start to relax.
It was amazing. Something I’d never seen before and the internet is literally littered with videos like this.
How beautiful was that to watch? The first time I saw it I was amazed. At the time
it was still federally illegal and seemed like such a far-fetched
way to treat epilepsy.
What I didn’t know is all of the other ailments that CBD can help treat. Here is just a small list of the man ailments that CBD can help treat.
“Natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties
People tend to use prescription or over-the-counter drugs to relieve stiffness and pain, including chronic pain.
Some people believe that CBD offers a more natural alternative.
Authors of a study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some mice and rats.
The researchers suggested that the non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana, such as CBD, could constitute a new treatment for chronic pain.
Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals
Some promising evidence suggests that CBD use may help people to quit smoking. A pilot study published in Addictive Behaviors found that smokers who used inhalers containing CBD smoked fewer cigarettes than usual and had no further cravings for nicotine.
More research is necessary, but these findings suggest that CBD may help to prevent or reduce withdrawal symptoms.
After researching the safety and effectiveness of CBD oil for treating epilepsy, the FDA approved the use of CBD (Epidiolex) as a therapy for two rare conditions characterized by epileptic seizures.
In the U.S., a doctor can prescribe Epidiolex to treat:
- Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a condition that appears between the ages of 3 and 5 years and involves different kinds of seizures
- Dravet syndrome (DS), a rare genetic condition that appears in the first year of life and involves frequent, fever-related seizures
The types of seizures that characterize LGS or DS are difficult to control with other types of medication.
Other neurological symptoms and disorders
Researchers are studying the effects of CBD on various neuropsychiatric disorders.
Authors of a 2014 review noted that CBD has anti-seizure properties and a low risk of side effects for people with epilepsy.
Studies suggest that CBD may also treat many complications linked to epilepsy, such as neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric diseases.
Another study, published in Current Pharmaceutical Design, found that CBD may produce effects similar to those of certain antipsychotic drugs and that the compound may provide a safe and effective treatment for people with schizophrenia.
Some researchers have found that CBD may prove to combat cancer.
Authors of a review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found evidence that CBD significantly helped to prevent the spread of cancer.
In addition, the researchers noted that the compound tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction.
The authors pointed out that CBD has low levels of toxicity and called for further research into its potential as an accompaniment to standard cancer treatments.
Doctors often advise people with chronic anxiety to avoid cannabis, as THC can trigger or amplify feelings of anxiousness and paranoia.
However, authors of a review from Neurotherapeutics found that CBD may help to reduce anxiety in people with certain related disorders.
According to the review, CBD may reduce anxiety-related behaviors in people with conditions such as:
- general anxiety disorder
- panic disorder
The authors noted that current treatments for these disorders can lead to additional symptoms and side effects, which can cause some people to stop taking them.
No further definitive evidence currently links CBD to adverse effects, and the authors called for further studies of the compound as a treatment for anxiety.
Type 1 diabetes
Type 1 diabetes results from inflammation that occurs when the immune system attacks cells in the pancreas.
Research published in 2016 by Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation found that CBD may ease this inflammation in the pancreas. This may be the first step in finding a CBD-based treatment for type 1 diabetes.
A paper presented in the same year in Lisbon, Portugal, suggested that CBD may reduce inflammation and protect against or delay the development of type 1 diabetes.
Acne treatment is another promising use for CBD. The condition is caused, in part, by inflammation and overworked sebaceous glands in the body.
A 2014 study published by the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum that leads to acne, partly because of its anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Sebum is an oily substance, and overproduction can cause acne.
CBD could become a future treatment for acne vulgaris, the most common form of acne.
Initial research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that CBD was able to prevent the development of social recognition deficit in participants.
This means that CBD could help people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s to keep the ability to recognize the faces of people that they know.
This is the first evidence that CBD may slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. “

As you can see this list is pretty exhaustive and is growing larger every day. Since the recent changes in legislation (mainly Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014) researchers have been given the green light to explore the ever expansive field of CBD. I predict that the scope and uses for CBD will expand to encompass most common ailments.
Don’t suffer from a major ailment? Don’t worry. CBD is still most likely a good fit for you. I myself have PTSD and chronic pain but even if I didn’t I would still be using CBD.
Two reasons, CBD helps reduce stress pretty noticeably as well as inflammation. These two conditions are currently running rampant in our society. Most of us are stressed because of the way we in America live our lives. We see stress as a healthy reaction to life. Ask any doctor how prolonged exposure to the stress response affects the person that is experiencing the stress response, they will all tell you the same thing, “that’s not good, the patient should make efforts to reduce stress.” I’m sure your doctor has told you that at one point. CBD won’t eliminate your stress but it will help manage the stress response which is actually what does the damage.
So we talked about stress. Another major benefit of CBD is its anti-inflammatory properties. As a result of the poor food quality available in our culture. Most people are severely inflamed. A daily dose of CBD has been proven to reduce inflammation at a visual level. That means that your friends will actually think you’re losing weight, just because you’re using CBD.
By now you should understand that CBD is not the dangerous problem that you may have heard before. CBD is a magnificent compound that proves regularly to benefit us mammals. The systematic use of the compound can and will most likely lead to an improvement in ones overall quality of life.
If you are interested in learning more about CBD or would like to try some yourself I have something special to tell you.
Thank you so much for reading this.
Please do me a favor and share this article with somebody you know. We need to get the word out about CBD. There are too many people suffering needlessly and you and I can do something about that. So share this story with anybody you know and I’ll see you in the club.
