New Scientific Breakthroughs Shatter Previous CBD Concerns

Cannabis has come under a great deal of fire over the last several years. Opposers preach of its dangers and potential to bring about the downfall of society whereas new studies of its effectiveness in the medical world continually emerge. From mental and physical standpoints, the same herb causing so much controversy is the herbal remedy making monumental breakthroughs where pharmaceutical companies fall short.

For quite some time now, the scientific community has been emphasizing marijuana’s ability to fight glaucoma, insomnia, and nausea. It’s also effective in the battle against cancer from a couple different angles. On the reactive end of the spectrum, it can help combat pain as well as nausea and lack of appetite associated with chemotherapy. Research shows it can actually shrink certain types of tumors from a more proactive perspective.

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD are on the list of possible applications for CBD as well. Those who suffer from seizures, muscle spasms and tremors brought on by a wide range of conditions also benefit from cannabis and its derivatives. Add in its applications in the treatment of severe headaches, eating disorders, glucose intolerance, skin conditions, asthma, and emphysema, and you’re still only covering the tip of the iceberg.

Despite all the potential hiding within each cannabis strain, a few downsides do exist. Even with organic farming methods, environmental contaminants have a way of entering the mix. They tend to contribute to many of the conditions CBD is able to treat or possibly cause new illnesses just as they can with the fruits and vegetables available in grocery store produce sections. At the same time, tolerance to the effective substances in cannabis tends to build up over time, leading to the need for larger doses.

As it turns out, experts have been blazing a trail in this department as well. New methods of production include a number of steps designed to remove impurities and contaminants while creating a more potent dose. This new form of CBD known as shatter is much more highly concentrated than its predecessors. Users are able to thwart pain, inflammation, emotional disorders and other conditions with only a small amount, and they don’t have to worry about potentially harmful contaminants.
