CBD: Ancient Medicine for the 21st Century and Neurobiologix Is Leading the Way For Supplement Companies!

Let’s start with a little history: Nobody knows how long people have been using cannabis—that’s how old this plant’s relationship with humanity is. Cannabis has one of the longest histories with humanity of any plant on the face of the Earth. Even in its natural, wild form, cannabis has been used for thousands of years as an analgesic, and it has also been used to treat “sicknesses of the soul,” a term that primitive people commonly used to refer to psychiatric conditions. In 1992 a report by Devane et al discovered the existence of specific receptors in mammalian cells known as the endocannabinoid system, which is closely connected with the nervous and immune system. CBD has been shown to boost just about every function of our cannabinoid receptors and activates receptors that play a role in the mediation of body temperature, pain perception and inflammation.*

The activation of one receptor known as the adenosine receptor gives the relaxation and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD. Adenosine receptors are also involved in the release of dopamine and glutamate, two neurotransmitters that play major roles in the central nervous system. Dopamine is involved in cognition, motor control, motivation and reward mechanisms, while glutamate is one of the major mediators of excitatory signals, being involved in memory, learning and cognition. High concentrations of CBD have been shown to activate the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor, exerting anti-depressant effects. The same receptor is involved in a series of processes from pain perception, appetite, nausea and restlessness for sleep and addiction mechanisms.*

Ethan B. Russo's paper in 2003 explored the concept of a clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) underlying the pathophysiology of migraines, chronic pain, bowel syndromes and other functional conditions alleviated by clinical cannabis. Research published in Neuro Endicrinol Lett, 2014, has confirmed that “underlying endocannabinoid deficiencies indeed play a role in migraine, chronic pain, bowel syndromes and a growing list of other medical conditions”.*

Some may be wondering if CBD is legal. CBD is extracted and separated from various specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. The most abundant constituent of cannabis is the cannabinoid known as THC, an intoxicating -- and in many states -- illegal substance that is responsible for causing the “high” in marijuana use. There is a lot of misconception surrounding CBD, partially because of its close resemblance to THC. It is important to know that CBD is completely separated and isolated from THC and CBD cannot get you “high”.

Tips on dosing: Many people are confused about the dosing and labeling. Clients have come in asking for CBD oil and I always ask them what dose? They may say 100mg, or 600mg or even 1800mg. I can assure you ̶̶ you are NOT taking 1800mg of CBD. That is the amount in the whole bottle. And depending on how many doses per bottle will depend on the strength. I have no idea why the CBD industry does this, but in all other supplement products they label it according to mg per dose not bottle. For example: if you take 1000mg per capsule of vitamin C and there are 60 capsules in the bottle, you are not taking 60,000mg of vitamin C.

Neurobiologix has insured to list the amount of CBD per dose to cause less confusion for the patient and make it easy to understand the directions. Their CBD oil is one of the best in today’s marketplace and is Non-GMO, grown in the United States and is Co2 extracted which is extremely important in the manufacturing of the oil.
