CBD Oils – The Myths And Facts
There have been some confusing reports recently in the British media about a compound in cannabis called CBD and how it has been reclassified as medicine.
At which point you may have assumed that Theresa May had done a policy U-turn and decided to legalize medical cannabis. And you will almost certainly have got lost with all the talk of non-psychoactive compounds, cannabinoids, CBD, THC and the like.
But fear not. You are about to find out all you need to know, as I reveal the myths and the facts about CBD.
Fact – CBD is a type of cannabinoid
Ok, so let’s get the complicated, science bit out of the way first. CBD, otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is one of over 100 compounds in the cannabis plant called Cannabinoids. The most abundant is THC, the bit that gets people high, after that comes CBD. What makes CBD particularly interesting (and legal) is that it doesn’t have the same intoxicating effect, but has been found to be anti-inflammatory, reduce seizures in cases of epilepsy, help with anxiety, and treat chronic pain. It is mostly consumed in oils, extracts and crystals.
Two Programs Having Their Different Benefits..
Myth – CBD is good, THC is bad
Because CBD doesn’t create a high, it’s been labelled ‘the good’ cannabinoid and THC the ‘bad’. But in countries where medical cannabis is legal, THC can be prescribed for cancer patients going through chemo as it eases nausea and improves appetite. Preclinical studies also indicate that THC kills certain types of cancer cells. But interestingly, if you combine both cannabinoids together, CBD actually reduces the psychoactive effect of THC.
Fact – CBD interacts with the your endocannabinoid system
So, you may not know it, but everything from sea squirts to humans have an endocannabinoid system – a vast network of receptors and cannabis-like chemicals (endocannabinoids) that regulates vital functions such as sleep, appetite, mood, memory, inflammation and reproduction. Sometimes this system can become depleted and scientists believe this may contribute to certain illnesses. Research shows that taking CBD creates higher levels of our own endocannabinoids, helping the body to restore balance again.
Myth – There’s no scientific proof that CBD works
While until now, most of the scientific research has been preclinical, there have been a number of human, clinical trials carried out on CBD. So far it has been shown to reduce episodes of schizophrenia and be effective at easing social anxiety. But the most extensive research on human subjects has been into treating childhood epilepsy. There have been a number of clinical trials, including by British company GW Pharmaceuticals, who have developed a CBD based drug called Epidiolex, trialed with success on children with a rare form of epilepsy at Great Ormond’s Street Hospital in London.
Fact (ish) – CBD is now classified as a medicine
In the UK it has been possible to buy CBD as a nutritional supplement. But last October, the Medical Healthcare Regulatory Agency decided to recognize CBD’s therapeutic benefits and reclassify it as medicine. In effect this means that at some point in the future, CBD may have to go through the same rigorous, double blind, placebo trials as other medicines. However, in the meantime while it is under review, CBD can still be bought as a nutritional supplement, but this may change in the future.
Myth – if CBD is so good, why not just make Synthetic CBD?
Good question. After all that’s what’s been done with aspirin and morphine right? The thing is that in the case of cannabis, scientists have found that there is a kind of synergy between all the active compounds, so that the whole is greater than the sum of all the parts. It’s been called the entourage effect. But using the whole plant is of little interest to pharmaceutical companies who prefer single compounds or synthetic versions that can be patented.
Fact – CBD comes from hemp
Like me a few months ago, you probably have no idea about the difference between hemp and cannabis. Basically they are the same plant, only hemp contains next to no levels of THC (less than 0.2%), but is abundant in CBD.
However, hemp’s wonders don’t end there. When planted, it can absorb toxins from the soil and has even been used to clean up ground contaminated by industrial pollution. So make sure you choose an organic source, so that your CBD is free of heavy metals and pesticides.
So there you have it. You are no longer a CBD novice. But if you do decide to take CBD for the first time, do your own background research and consult a doctor before beginning treatment.

REVIEWS OF OUR CLIENTS
My HCG Program ROCKS!!! I just had my second child (which made me almost double my clothing size). My friend recommended this HCG Program her co-worker was doing and I was all for it! I’m now doing my 2nd Round of HCG with this clinic and I love it! Now I’m enjoying the results of the program. The staff is super friendly and make you feel like family. I don’t feel hunger and have none of my usual cravings. This is by far my best weight loss experience EVER!!!!
The staff at My HCG Program is great to work with. They understand your concerns and don’t try ‘hard sell’ you on a lot of things you don’t need or weren’t looking for when you contacted them. Their pricing is fair unlike a lot of other clinics that are trying to charge as much as they can for HCG or other services. I lost 30 pounds in my first treatment round and I am a return customer on my way to getting the other 30 lbs. off.
I made a decision to do something about my weight. It is not easy once you are in a habit of making poor food choices to now make good ones. I went to HCG clinic and the people there are very helpful and want to see you succeed and lose weight. The people here are great. They encourage you and help to customize a diet that will work for you. I needed the support of people, nurse and Dr. who is consulted as needed. The first two weeks are difficult. Once you start seeing you will stick with diet. The end result is what you keep your eye on!!! Look forward to losing at least 35 pounds with the help of HCG Results Diet Center.
Gary is a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. He spent time understanding my unique health challenges and weight loss goals, then tailored a program to my exact needs. He takes a scientific approach to fat loss and, as such, his programs have continually evolved to incorporate the most up-to-date information available on the HCG program. As a result, I’ve lost a total of 54 pounds, without hunger or plateaus. His support and my results have been amazing! Thank you Bodyology!
I absolutely love Gary and the Bodyology Center HCG Weight Loss System. I have released over 50 lbs and I am living a new life of happiness and joy every day. I am a new person with a new attitude enjoying life to the fullest! All you have to do is follow the step by step system and you will succeed.
HCG is the way to go!!! After trying diet after diet and pill after pill I was skeptical at first especially with 800 calorie diet. However the price was right and the staff was professional, knowledgeable and very nice. It was exciting to step on the scale each day and see myself loose a pound a day. FINALLY SOMTHING THAT WORKS!! Thank you Bodyology Center!
My experience with HCG Assisted Diet has been amazing! When I first looked into the diet I was pretty skeptical unsure as to whether I would actually be able to stick to such a restricted diet. However; with My counselors, not only did I benefit from the HCG products and supplements they sold to me, but I also had Gary’s support throughout my experience.. Altogether I lost 24 lbs. from when I first started at 157lbs.I highly recommend this company to anyone interested in losing weight quickly and learning to adjust a more healthy eating habit.
I started my HCG shots early in March I was 190.0 lbs. Today April 30 I am happy to say that I weigh 168.4lbs a this process was hard in the beginning but my cravings and temptations soon went away then I was craving a grape fruit and grilled chicken everything that people would never think of eating like Black coffee in the morning or grilled chicken with little to no season were the food that I now crave. My weight loss journey has just begun and I will continue to stay healthy and maintain my weight throughout the 4 years I attend UF.
I just finished my HCG program at Bodyology and it was wonderful!! I was hesitant at first to try this program, but the more I read about it, the more I felt it was perfect for me. The clinic is beautiful, and everyone there treated me like I was the most important patient they had. The explained the program in great detail, and told me that I could always call with any questions or concerns. It was easy to follow and my total weight loss was 28 pounds which I have now kept off for six months.So far I have recommended Bodyology Center to three of my friends and I am confident that they will be just as pleased as I am. Thank you so much,
