“Health Benefits of CBD Oil”, a presentation given by Dr. Michelle Bean, DC at the Silicon Valley Health Institute on April 19, 2018.
A scientific revolution has begun which promises to reclaim a very special ancient plant and restore balance throughout the earth’s living ecosystems. Emerging research is now reintroducing hemp, highlighting the various implications of its diverse constituents. Many people believe that hemp, in every form, can save the world through its thousands of potential applications! Of notable significance is cannabidiol, or ‘CBD’, a non-psychoactive compound within hemp which is altering lives in seemingly miraculous ways.
During her presentation Dr. Michelle Bean explains in a very easy-to-understand way what cannabis is, what the three main components of cannabis are, what cannabinoids are, etc.
She informs you about the cannabinoids starting with the first two found cannabinoids THC, the psychoactive component and the non-psychoactive
component CBD and the other cannabinoids working together synergistically with all the other ones.
She explains that all of the discoveries of the years and all of the testing started to make people understand the influence of cannabinoids on cancer cell growth, blood sugar levels, inflammation and so on.
Dr. Michelle Bean mentions the Endocannabinoid System serving as a bridgeway between the body and the mind. By understanding this system we can begin to observe an apparatus which explains how states of consciousness can either promote health or disease.
At the end of her presentations she stipulates the cautions and contraindications, the pleasant and unpleasant sensations people might experience, the difference in this respect with higher THC or higher CBD.
She ends her presentation by saying that fortunately people start to have more and more understanding of cannabis and the many research that is done and continues to be done for all kinds of diseases and disorders such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, depression, PTSD.
