What Is CBD Chocolate?

CBD chocolate is pretty self-explanatory. It is a combination of CBD (cannabidiol) and a dark or milk chocolate. CBD is a compound which the Cannabis sativa L. plant produces. Unlike its cousin, THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not have intoxicating effects. It does, however, have a whole range of potential health benefits.Humans have used cannabis therapeutically for thousands of years. Chinese medicine texts from the second century listed it as a medicinal herb, and it also features prominently in the Ayurvedic traditions of India.

However, throughout the 20th century, cannabis was prohibited and subsequently became illegal in most parts of the world. Only in the last few decades has research shed light on its many potential uses, allowing it to become popular once again.

 

Benefits of Cannabis:
Nightmares: Chronic use can screw up your sleep patterns. But, for those suffering from PTSD, it appears that nabilone, a synthetic form of THC, will reduce the related nightmares. In one study, published in the CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics Journal, “The majority of patients (72%) receiving nabilone experienced either cessation of nightmares or a significant reduction in nightmare intensity. Subjective improvement in sleep time, the quality of sleep, and the reduction of daytime flashbacks and nightsweats were also noted by some patients.”
Parkinson’s Disease: Patients with Parkinson’s Disease suffer constantly from spasms and tremors, symptoms that are obvious to all. But, patients also suffer chronic pain and sleeping difficulties. MedPage refers to research headed by Dr. Ruth Djaldetti at Tel Aviv University where “Overall, patients' scores on the standard Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) averaged 33 before they smoked cannabis in the laboratory and averaged 24 after 30 minutes.” She also noted, “We saw a dramatic reduction in pain in our patients and in their ability to sleep. When their pain was reduced, they slept better."

 

Benefits of Marijuana: some small studies support the idea that marijuana can have beneficial results for certain ailments. One of the ways scientists think it may help with pain is by reducing inflammation, a component of painful illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis.

A preliminary 2005 study of 58 patients with RA, roughly half of whom were given a placebo and roughly half of whom were given a cannabis-based medicine called Sativex, found "statistically significant improvements in pain on movement, pain at rest ... and quality of sleep" for patients on Sativex. If you experience a chronic pain, you should be eligible to obtain a medical marijuana card. Please visit us or call us for the appointment.
