There is a long list of toxic drugs that are readily available – from pain killers to tranquilizers – as long as you have a prescription. Yet, many of these are known to contribute to heart, liver and kidney damage, among other risks. Meanwhile, the natural herb cannabis is staunchly regulated in most regions, despite a safe track record spanning thousands of years in the treatment of cancer, diabetes, epilepsy and other medical conditions.
Toxic medications are NOT your only solution for pain. Fact: Western medicine will never cure your disease. Their primary focus is the ‘management’ of your symptoms – that’s it! Jonathan Landsman and John Hicks, MD – a leader in the field of integrated holistic medicine – they talk about the healing properties of cannabis and how this natural substance can be safely used to reduce inflammation, boost immune function and optimize your health.

A major stigma for the medically useful cannabidiol, or CBD, is that it is often confused with THC, another element of the cannabis plant that is used recreationally to achieve a high. But CBD is made from the roots and stems of the plant, rather than the leaves and flowers that yield THC. Unlike marijuana, it is legal in all 50 states and most countries around the globe.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the portion of the cannabis plant that is known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anxiolytic and neuro-protective properties. As a neuro-protector, CBD fulfills a number of functions, including reduction of radical oxygen species, support of mitochondrial function at the cell levels, and prevention of glutamate toxicity, to name just a few.
As an anxiolytic, CBD offers a wealth of opportunities for developing natural approaches for alleviating pain. Its anti-inflammatory properties enable its effective use in such conditions as rheumatoid arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders ad sleep apnea. CBD has also been used to help people overcome cancer.
