When I think about the absolute most tragic side effect of accelerated aging it would have to be losing my memory.
You see my grandmother had Alzheimers, and it was the most horrific thing I have ever witnessed.
Over a 5 year period she went from forgetting to turn off the stove, to forgetting the names and faces of her own children and grandchildren. Every day she would ask where her husband was, and every time she was told he had died she would experience the heart wrenching grief as if it were the first time she was being told.
If you can’t remember the names of those you love, the places you have been and the experiences you have had, does anything else in this world matter?
So when I started doing research on this plant that dates back to 3,000 BC, and has hundreds of known health benefits, the thing that really caught my attention was the anti aging effect it has on the brain.
CBD oil, a specific Cannabidiol from the Cannabis plant, also known as the marijuana plant has hundreds of health and anti aging benefits that are finally seeing the light of day.
Cannabidiol aka CBD is a marijuana extract that has no psychoactive properties. That’s right I am not suggesting that you ever get “high” in the name of slowing down the aging process.
CDB oil offers most of the health benefits of marijuana without the feeling of being “high” and it is legal in all 50 states.
Back in 1963 an organic chemist in Israel, named Raphael Mechoulam, working at the Weizmann Institute of Science outside Tel Aviv, decided to study the chemical composition of marijuana. After all it was known that morphine came from opium and cocaine from coca leaves, but at that time no one had any idea what the principal psychoactive ingredient was in marijuana.
Mechoulam discovered that Tetrahydrocannabinol aka THC is what makes you high. He also discovered that Cannabidiol aka CBD, another abundant ingredient in marijuana has medical and health benefits but no psychoactive effect.
Mechoulam is still studying marijuana to this day and has published 400 scientific papers and is the holder of 25 patents. He calls cannabis a “medicinal treasure trove”.
FYI CBD is routinely used in the Israeli medical system to treat patients.
Here is where it gets really interesting. The human brain has a built in Endocannabinoid System (ECS). CBD oil synergizes and helps support this built in system.
The ECS is our body’s way of communicating with itself to properly regulate bodily functions such as pain sensation, appetite, temperature regulation, stress reactivity, immune function, sleep and many other processes. Muscle and fat tissue also utilize these receptors to control their processes.
The human body also produces endogenous cannabinoids such as anandamide and 2AG.
I personally find it fascinating that the human body has built in cannabinoid receptors and produces cannabinoids as well.
I think somewhere along the way we forgot or were forced to forget about the amazing properties of cannabis. After all if you look at ancient history, cannabis has been found in burial sites as far back as 3,000 BC.
Scientific studies show that CBD oil as well as all micronutrients, phytonutrients, and phyto-cannabinoids found in the oil work in harmony with the human body to create a positive effect for overall wellness.
I was speaking with an expert on CBD oil and he explained to me that the human body has not been able to keep up with the huge changes that have happened in just the last 100 years.
The toxic overload we now experience on a daily basis compared to just 100 years ago is mind boggling. There is also the Electromagnetic Field or EMF overload that did not even exist 50 years ago. Then you add in the information overload that a person experiences on a daily basis and it is understandable that the body needs extra help more than ever before.
CBD Oil helps the body’s Endocannabinoid System deal with all of these modern day changes.
Scientist are discovering amazing properties associated with consuming CBD oil.
Scientists associated with the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) have elucidated a number of molecular pathways through which CBD exerts a therapeutic impact.
CBD Oil has Anti Cancer Properties
For example, a pre clinical study by Dr. Sean McAllister and his colleagues at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco report on how CBD destroys breast cancer cells by down-regulating a gene called ID-1, which is implicated in several types of aggressive cancer. Silencing the ID-1 gene is, thus, is a potential strategy for cancer treatment.
“Cannabidiol offers hope of a non-toxic therapy that could treat aggressive forms of cancer without any of the painful side effects of chemotherapy,” says McAllister.
CBD Oil promotes overall brain health.
Endocannabinoids (ECS) play a key role in memory, mood, brain reward systems, drug addiction, and energy balance. As the name suggests, they are activated by the same receptors as CBD. Research has been conducted to show the benefits of the ECS system in relation to combating depression and anxiety, to create feelings of well-being. CBD naturally acts on the ECS system’s signals to increase receptor function and flow, combating the effects of anxiety and depression.
CBD has been shown to improve the efficiency of mitochrondria, the energy source for cells. The oxygen cleanse which also reduces the brain’s aging process, plays a part in also increasing brain activity. Through destroying free radicals, mitochondria are able to function properly. Because the brain has an extremely high energy demand it is important to over-exceed this demand to increase proper brain functioning.
CBD OIl is Antibacterial
A study from the University of London showed that CBD provided potent activity against a variety of MRSA strains, the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria that is resistant to most antibiotics. This bacteria kills 18,000 of the 94,000 people infected each year in the United States.
CBD has been used as a treatment for tuberculosis since 1950 and has also been shown to fight infections such as staphylococci and streptococci infections that antibiotics are unable to. Most promising of all is the fact that CBD’s antibacterial properties continue to work even on the bacteria that evolves and becomes antibiotic resistant.
CBD or Cannabidiol is finally being recognized as a revolutionary healer.
Ongoing research identifies CBD as an effective treatment for various ailments including inflammation, arthritis, diabetes, mood disorders, ADD, depression, cancer, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinsons and Huntington’s disease.
Research at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology suggests that CBD can block the progress of arthritis without any of the typical marijuana effects.
It was quite by accident that I was led to the anti aging benefits of CBD Oil.
Over Christmas we were vacationing in Crested Butte, CO, where recreational marijuana is legal. A family member ask me and my sister to go to the “pot shop” to help find something that might help alleviate their sleep issues.
My sister who is diabetic started asking the owner questions about marijuana and diabetes. They told her she needed to be on CBD oil, that it would not get her high and that it is known to really help with blood sugar levels. They did not sell CBD oil, so off we went.
A few weeks after the holidays my sister found Super CBD Oil from Ojai Energetics . So I started researching the company and was quite impressed.
Ojai Energetics produces the highest quality CBD Oil on the market today. All of the ingredients are organic and GMO free.
Super CBD Oil comes from rich organic hemp and hemp seed oil. The oil contains the optimal ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3s for the human body as well as ALA, and is a complete source of protein.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a compound found naturally inside every cell in the body. It is needed by the body to produce the energy for the body’s normal functions. Alpha lipoic acid converts glucose (blood sugar) into energy.
The blend also contains one of nature’s most nutritional superfoods, Moringa, which is loaded with Vitamin C, Calcium, and bioavailable minerals. Organic Acerola Cherry, an amazing superfood from Brazil loaded with Vitamin C is also added.
The way Ojai Energertics Super CBD Oil is processed is very unique.
Ojai Energetics increased the product bioavailability by making the CBD water-soluable. This enables the CBD to pass through the membranes of the mouth and stomach much faster.
When CBD is not water soluable, like most other CBD products on the market, around 90% of the cannabindoids get destroyed in the liver.
This means that the 250 mg of Ojai Energetics CBD oil is equivalent to 2500+ mg of CBD in other brands.
This product contains .03% THC, well below the federal limit of .3%, but enough to have the “entourage” effect. It is the slight presence of the THC that boosts the over all effectiveness of all the other cannabinoids.
While this product will not make you high, unfortunately it is possible for CBD to result in a positive test for THC— much like eating a poppy seed bagel can cause a positive for opiates depending on the type of test. Use discretion if you are planning on being drug tested.
Now that all the stigmas associated with the psychoactive side-effects of cannabis have been taken out of the equation, CBD is being heralded as the way of the future. Many who were originally opposed to the healing properties of Cannabis, have done a 180 degree turn, including CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta.
There are so many health benefits to consuming Super CBD Oil and The Ageless Beauty Report is all about creating optimal health the natural way, which always slows down the aging process.
The FDA has not evaluated the validity or truthfulness of these claims; therefore, we encourage you to review published researches relating to the benefits and properties of CBD hemp oils and other CBD products.
