I’ve just started taking a low dose (10mg) full spectrum Cannabidiol (CBD) capsule first thing in the morning.

I’m taking a full spectrum CBD product as there seems to be evidence that these work better than extracts containing only certain components. See this study which looked at terpenoids and their synergy with CBDs (terpenoids are the flavour and smell components) – https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=lSdzMDceASOpF0ZjU80z3g

CBD seems to work via our endocannabinoid system (ECS) which was only discovered in 1992 by researchers working with the National Institute of Mental Health. For a very interesting read about this newly discovered “regulating” system see – https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=25VTVKf24LawjShYqd15bQ

When you take CBD (an exocannabinoid rather than the ones your body makes) it seems to recharge your cannabinoid system which may have slowed down due to age or stressors.

The 4 reasons why I started taking CBD are as follows:

1. Brain Health:

a.  Initial research shows that CBDs can remove plaque from the brain. The researchers at the Salk Institute tested THC and other CBDs https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=3e_54Mm6.jCtlkCETcBJIw

b.  CBD may boost brain stem cells – see this in vitro study: https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=0X.FFKWLCVyXlZ5g_jKQUA

2. Supports Healthy Blood Pressure – see this study: https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=SuRAiCTdD0.cYb9kPLb.cQ

3. Improves Sleep: I take mine in the morning on an empty stomach as I found if I took it before bed it actually affected my sleep. After taking in the morning I feel my sleep has improved. See this study: https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=JEc3WEHBRTq7HIyUQ7fcjw

4. May be good for your heart – see this study which looked at the effectiveness of CBD in preventing heart failure and sudden cardiac death (Myocarditis) – https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=mc1BdgSW36icE4Y&b=bZ3WS8uatRgmurV7b0uPAw

I would recommend starting with a low dose full spectrum CBD product and seeing if you get any benefits. Let me know how you get on
