Get to know the healing powers of the active cannabinoid CBD This book will tell you all you need to know about the benefits of (the medical applications of) the active cannabinoid CBD and hemp oil. CBD has the power to change lives, health, and minds for the better. Marijuana, once a controversial substance, is made up out of 482 active components of which some have tremendous influential powers. With the recent acknowledgment of the healing powers of marijuana and its active component cannabidiol (CBD), the future of hemp oil and medical marijuana looks very bright. Not just bright for those in business, but more for those who have been suffering. CBD has the power to be of therapeutic value and serves as some of nature's best supplementation! CBD has the power to change lives. Cannabidiol has been able to do so for those who suffer from Acne, ADD/ADHD, Addiction, AIDS, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Alzheimer's, Anorexia, Antibiotic, Resistance, Anxiety, Atherosclerosis, Arthritis, Asthma, Autism, Bipolar, Cancer, Colitis/Crohn's, Depression, Diabetes, Endocrine Disorders, Epilepsy/Seizure, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Heart, Disease, Huntington's, Inflammation, Irritable Bowel, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease, Metabolic Syndrome, Migraine, Mood Disorders, Motion Sickness, Multiple Sclerosis, Nausea, Neurodegeneration, Neuropathic Pain, Obesity, OCD, Osteoporosis, Parkinson's, Prion/Mad Cow Disease, PTSD, Rheumatism, Schizophrenia, Sickle Cell Anemia, Skin Conditions, Sleep, Disorders, Spinal Cord Injury, Stress and Stroke/TBI. Cannabis is known around the world for both its medicinal powers and ability to get a user high. Lately, cannabis has received a lot of positive attention and is, at the moment of this writing, legal in 28 states in the USA alone. Many countries are following by example, and we're seeing extraordinary results from the medical applications of cannabis. What many people don't know, is that cannabis is made up out of two types of cannabinoids. While THC is able to produce a 'high' in the user, CBD has profound medical powers that have proven to heal many around the world, throughout history. Awareness of these healing powers is growing. Many acknowledge the difference between the recreational and medical use of cannabinoids. At this point in time, hemp oil with the most potent medical cannabinoid CBD is available in over 50 states in the US, without the need of a prescription. Cannabinoids stimulate our ECS receptor sites, which are found in the brain, glands, connective tissue and immune cells. That being said, Cannabinoids also influence many physiological processes for the better. These processes include appetite, pain relief, emotions and memory processes. Our body naturally produces types of cannabinoids, which help our body to function. When our natural balance of cannabinoids is not at healthy levels, we can experience something called "Endocannabinoid Deficiency". Supplementing ourselves with hemp oil, can work wonders to restore that balance. In this book, you will learn everything about CBD and what is able to do for you.The information is made easy to understand and digestable for anyone with developed reading skills. A preview of what you'll learn in this book: A detailed explanation about CBD, what it is, how it works and how it changes lives for the better The difference between different cannabinoids like THC and CBD Cannabidiol's power to heal, cure and improve The ins and outs of hemp oil from a medical point of perspective Personal applications of CBD Easy recipes to make hemp oil Bonus: CBD edibles Discover the amazing benefits of CBD and hemp oil for yourself!

How Society Fails Those with Chronic Pain

Author: David Nagel, MD

Publisher: University Press of New England

ISBN: 1611689635

Category: Health & Fitness

Page: 320

View: 5710

Needless Suffering offers a sociological examination of a complex medical problem: chronic pain and the inability of doctors and other health professionals to understand and manage it in their patients. People in pain, writes Dr. David Nagel, are the poor of the medical world. Like the poor, they are stigmatized and left at the mercy of powerful social actors who tend to work in their own self-interest, frequently at the expense of those they propose to serve. This leaves those who suffer with little control over their own destinies and creates a dysfunctional status quo that harms instead of helps. Drawing on his own experience witnessing his mother's chronic pain and numerous clinical stories from over thirty years' expertise as a pain management specialist, Nagel looks first at patients, their families, and their doctors (usually not trained in pain management), and then broadens his canvas to elaborate a pain power structure that includes the entire healthcare community, insurers, lawyers, government regulators, employers, politicians, law enforcement agencies, and painkilling drugs. Concluding with concrete reforms to create more effective and compassionate pain care, this book is designed for pain patients and their families, healthcare providers, legislators and other public policymakers, judges, personal injury and other attorneys, insurers, government regulators, law enforcement personnel, and health care businesspeople.

Woran liegt das? Der britische Journalist Johann Hari begibt sich auf eine einzigartige Reise – von Brooklyn über Mexiko bis nach Deutschland – und erzählt die Geschichten derjenigen, deren Leben vom immerwährenden Kampf gegen Drogen geprägt ist: von Dealern, Süchtigen, Kartellmitgliedern, den Verlierern und Profiteuren.
