It’s been found that our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids that connect with receptors mainly found in the central nervous and immune system. These are the same cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant (Hemp and/or marijuana). When CBD extracts are ingested, one is fueling his/her central nervous and immune system.
For this reason, many people are claiming that it has helped them with symptoms like: inflammation, muscle spasms, seizures, anxiety, depression, and more. Private testimonials have been documented showing that the intake of cannabinoids has reduced seizures/spasms for some people suffering from conditions like epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, & tourette syndrome.
Cannabinoids are still not FDA approved. These are medical claims made by private parties/individuals and has not been federally approved.
For one reason, or another, the federal government still has not approved that cannabinoids are a real solution for many serious conditions. Some believe it’s due to large pharmaceutical companies giving large sums of money to political officials to keep cannabis suppressed in the medical industry. Whatever the reason may be, it’s not that the government doesn’t see the medical potential of CBD – they definitely do. So why would they submit patents on the plant then, and take this long to approve CBD? The question still remains.
