Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound in the Hemp/Marijuana plant that has healthy effects, but does not make people feel "high" and actually counteracts some of the effects tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) creates.

Compared with THC, cannabidiol is less psychoactive, and has a wider scope of health applications than THC.

For decades, only high-THC Cannabis was available, and now CBD-rich strains are being grown for medicinal purposes. The reduced psychoactivity of CBD-rich hemp makes it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking

  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-pain
  • anti-anxiety
  • anti-spasm effects

WITHOUT the disconcerting effect of lethargy or euphoria.

Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including:

  • Arthritis (including rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Diabetes
  • Alcoholism
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Epilepsy and neurological disorders.

CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anticancer potential is currently being explored at several research centers in the US and other countries.

The History of CBD

In the spring of 1998, the British government licensed a company called GW Pharmaceuticals to grow Cannabis and develop a precisely consistent plant extract for use in clinical trials. GW's cofounder Geoffrey Guy, MD, was convinced - and had convinced the Home Office - that by using CBD-rich plants, GW could produce a Cannabis-based medicine with little or no psychoactive effect.

That summer Guy described his approach at a meeting of the International Cannabinoid Research Society. In addition to countering the psychoactivity of THC, Guy said, CBD conferred benefits of its own. Queen Victoria had used CBD-rich Cannabis for menstrual cramps. Indeed, animal studies suggest that CBD lessened anxiety and reduced the severity and frequency of seizures.

It was assumed that generations of breeding for maximum THC had reduced CBD in California cannabis to trace levels. GW had gotten its CBD-rich strains by acquiring the genetic library of HortaPharm, a Dutch seed company run by American ex-pat naturalists, David Watson and Robert Clarke. Tod Mikuriya, MD, founder of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, expressed hope that "our Burbanks in the hills" would have preserved or could develop CBD-rich strains if and when an analytic test lab began serving the medical Cannabis industry.

As the years went by, more and more promising studies involving CBD were described at meetings of the ICRS, the International Association for Cannabinoid Medicine, and Patients Out of Time. California doctors kept abreast of the research and O'Shaughnessy's reported on it, but we were merely observers, not participants - until the fall of 2008, when Oakland's Steep Hill Laboratory began testing samples provided by Harborside Health Center.

Approximately one in 750 samples of Cannabis being grown for medical use is turning out to be CBD-rich. (For data collection purposes, "CBD-rich" has been defined as 4% or more by dry weight). Doctors and patients now have a unique opportunity to evaluate its effects.

CBD enhanced cannabis

In November 2012, an Israeli medical cannabis facility announced a new strain of the plant which has only cannabidiol as an active ingredient, and virtually no THC, providing some of the medicinal benefits of cannabis without the euphoria.

The researchers said the cannabis plant, enriched with CBD, "can be used for treating diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, liver inflammation, heart disease and diabetes".

At Dose of Nature, their goal is to empower people with Nature's tools, delivered in novel ways to give hope in fighting the chronic and life-threatening problems they are facing. The world is full of newly-released pharmaceuticals that may or may not deliver on their promise. Most of us at one time or another, have taken prescription drugs – drugs that by law must be prescribed by a doctor. If all goes well, the drug works for you as it's supposed to. But these drugs seem to have absurd side effects, or unintended consequences from taking the drugs.

The ads on the TV gloss these over quickly at the end of the ad, but they can be serious. In some cases, the side effects were discovered during FDA trials, but were deemed acceptable risks. Some legal drugs with extreme side effects which are worse than the condition they attempt to address.

Dose of Nature is also committed to continuing the research behind these technologies and the supplements they use. They believe that many herbs that have shown spotty results in the past could be a function of how the herb was delivered to the body and the condition of the GI tract of the person taking the supplement. In the case of the Hydrosomes™ and BioXTrax™, these supplements are very bioavailable, and Dose of Nature hopes to research and test them to breathe new life into old ingredients.

Martin Pytela, CMTA - that's Certified Metabolic Typing Advisor - offers his Health Coach services based on Metabolic Typing, a method that helps determine which foods and supplements will be most appropriate for you. You may already be aware that what heals one person may make another one worse ...

We make it our business to help people reverse chronic degenerative conditions, the source of aging and pain that plague so many of us. Especially of you have been frustrated by the medical system, and its symptom-oriented approach, you will find us to be refreshingly different. We believe that emergency room solutions so effective at saving a life are not appropriate for preventing conditions associated with aging or with system-wide break-downs.

Chances are that either you or someone very close to you is suffering from a chronic condition that conventional medical treatments are not able to resolve. You may have even been told to get used to it - it's part of aging or we can't do anything about it. Well, you can! And Martin will show you how.
