Illnesses

In 1985 the Endocannabinoid System was discovered in humans and animals, fish and reptiles, this is an integral system in our bodies responsible for addressing a myriad of toxicological, neurological and biological homeostasis, with receptors throughout the brain and body that are only effected by Endocannabinoids, Cannabinoids and certain Terpenoids.
It has been a long road to get to this point but attitudes are now being changed as it is being proven that cannabis can treat many illnesses, there are more clinical trials on humans proving this.

See below the multiple illnesses that certain strains which contain CBD can help with. Just to note CBD is not the only cannabinoid with medical properties but its the one that is in the public eye and has had considerable research done with it with some fantastic healing results.

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life.

PTSD is a disorder where someone has suffered a traumatic experience, they can suffer from nightmares, anxiety, flashbacks, guilt, isolation, insomnia, fear and much more.

Cancer is when abnormal cells divide in an uncontrolled way. Some cancers may eventually spread into other tissues.

There are more than 200 different types of cancer.

1 in 2 people in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime.

Acne is a disease that affects the skin's oil glands. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to the glands by a canal called a follicle.

Inflammation is a process by which the body's white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. ... In these diseases, called autoimmune diseases, the body's normally protective immune system causes damage to its own tissues.

Autoimmune diseases can affect almost any part of the body, including the heart, brain, nerves, muscles, skin, eyes, joints, lungs, kidneys, glands, the digestive tract, and blood vessels.

The classic sign of an autoimmune disease is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain, and swelling. How an autoimmune disease affects you depends on what part of the body is targeted. If the disease affects the joints, as in rheumatoid arthritis, you might have joint pain, stiffness, and loss of function. If it affects the thyroid, as in Graves’ disease and thyroiditis, it might cause tiredness, weight gain, and muscle aches. If it attacks the skin, as it does in scleroderma/systemic sclerosis, vitiligo, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), it can cause rashes, blisters, and color changes.

Many autoimmune diseases don’t restrict themselves to one part of the body. For example, SLE can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, heart, nerves, blood vessels, and more. Type 1 diabetes can affect your glands, eyes, kidneys, muscles, and more.

No one is sure what causes autoimmune diseases. In most cases, a combination of factors is probably at work. For example, you might have a genetic tendency to develop a disease and then, under the right conditions, an outside invader like a virus might trigger it.
