THE MANY BENEFITS OF PREST ORGANICS CBD
Pain & Anxiety free!
The world's most ethical CBD Hemp Oil
with David "Avocado" Wolfe and Andreas Wecker
CBD oil (cannabidiol oil) is pushing its way onto the market more and more, although there are still prejudices about it. After all, cannabidiol is a substance that is extracted from the hemp plant and is quickly associated with an intoxicating effect. But that is not the case.
CBD oil does not cause any psychoactive effects, so intoxication is not to be expected when using it. Although CBD oil is not approved as a medicinal product, numerous healing effects are ascribed to it. Here in the USA, CBD is already used in children with severe epilepsy.
Cannabinoids are special types of chemical messengers or neurotransmitters that specifically bind to cannabinoid receptors in the bodies of all vertebrates. In general, there are three types of cannabinoids: those that are produced by our body called endocannabinoids; Those produced by plants called Phyto cannabinoids; Synthetic cannabinoids that are produced in the laboratory.
When cannabinoids act as neurotransmitters, they become something incredibly special. Because, unlike most other neurotransmitters, which only send signals via the neural pathway, cannabinoids act as retrograde neurotransmitters that enable the signals to go up the same neural pathway again. Because of this, they have the ability to modulate messages between cells, which basically works like a "dimmer" by telling the "transmitter cells" to turn the signal down.
It is this ability of cannabinoids to act as retrograde neurotransmitters that is one of the reasons cannabinoids like CBD are so effective in helping people experience less pain, inflammation, fewer seizures, and less anxiety and stress.
Unlike other types of neurotransmitters, cannabinoids do not stick in the body and are not stored for later use. This is one of the reasons why cannabinoid overdose is almost impossible.
As with all our Andreas oils our proprietary Cold-Press technology delivers superior potency and absorption, 100% free from solvents, chemicals, metals, pesticides, and preservatives.
Here are just some of the main benefits of CBD oil that are backed by scientific evidence...
CBD FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT AND INFLAMMATION
When the body is injured, different types of compounds are released to send not only a pain signal, but compounds called prostanoids.
One type of prostanoid is prostaglandins, which are believed to be responsible for inflammation. Analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents like CBD work by blocking the release of these chemical compounds, potentially making it a powerful alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen.
CBD AND CANCER
CBD has been recognized as a potential anti-cancer treatment that hinders the spread of cancerous cells. CBD possesses anti-tumorigenic and anti-proliferative properties which interfere with the growth and proliferation of tumors, the migration of cancer cells, or their adhesion to organs or tissue.
CBD also exhibits another quality which renders it potentially useful as a cancer treatment. Research published in 2012 in the British Journal of Pharmacology has shown that CBD can influence tumor angiogenesis, which is the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones and is a critical way that tumors grow, invade and metastasize within the body.
Preventing the creation of new blood vessels can help to slow or cease tumor growth.
CBD AGAINST ACNE
CBD is useful for combating acne for two primary reasons. CBD reduces inflammation and helps regulate oil production. It has long been hailed as a remedy for inflammation.
It is known that CBD receptors signal your nerve cells to calm down when they’re releasing inflammatory signals. This can soothe the discomfort and redness of pimples.
In addition to this, CBD may play a key role in regulating oil production according to a recent study CBD is also viewed as a safe and natural alternative to acne medications like Retin-A.
CBD AGAINST ADDICTION AND ALCOHOLISM
Scientists found that because CBD interacts with the same neuroreceptors that many addictive drugs use, such as opioids, nicotine, and amphetamines, it can help treat addiction.
Not only does CBD have the ability to reduce the feeling of "reward effects" during poisoning, it can also help you deal with symptoms of withdrawal such as nausea, cramps, anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia.
CBD HELP FOR ANXIETY
CBD has been shown to target the same type of serotonin receptor that is often targeted by selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac and Zoloft.
Just like SSRIs, researchers found that CBD works by blocking the absorption of serotonin in the brain and helping brain cells transmit more serotonin signals.
This, in turn, reduces symptoms of anxiety disorders and relieves depression while improving general mood.
CBD FOR CROHN'S DISEASE
Since the cause of Crohn's disease is unknown, treatments primarily focus on relieving symptoms and reducing inflammation.
For example, CBD effects and benefits include that CBD is known as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, with a review study showing it is a promising therapy for treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) like Crohn's disease.
CBD AGAINST TYPE 1 DIABETES
Type 1 diabetes is a type of immune system disorder that destroys cells in the pancreas. This leads to an inability to produce insulin and, in the long term, damage to the pancreas.
Since cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the immune system, CBD is believed to help alleviate autoimmune diseases. In the case of type 1 diabetes, an animal study showed that CBD reduced both inflammation from invading immune cells and the disease itself.
While this is not evidence and more human studies are needed, the preliminary evidence is promising.
CBD BENEFITS FOR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION
Although CBD is now becoming popular in sex lubricants to increase feeling, CBD has also been shown to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction.
When there is less blood flow to the penis and there is tissue damage, a toxin called dioxin is formed.
In addition to the many other effects of CBD, it also has the ability to flush dioxin out of the body, helping to restore function.
Similarly, a recent study found that endocannabinoids may also play important roles in orgasm, the sexual response cycle, and in the treatment of sexual dysfunction.
CBD FOR EPILEPSY
Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, both forms of epilepsy, and the use of CBD oil as an effective treatment were first tested by a woman named Charlotte Figi.
Since then, the anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD, especially in the treatment of epilepsy, have been intensively researched.
Although scientists aren't sure exactly how CBD's anticonvulsant effects work, some think it's due to CBD's ability to reduce neural excitability and transmission by inhibiting the reuptake of adenosine, a chemical that has traditionally been used is considered to be an inhibitor of neuronal activity and a regulator of cerebral blood flow.

It was recently published in the journal "Brain, Behavior, and Immunity”.
