Cannabidiol or CBD is a highly toxic compound found in the marijuana plant. To deceive people, a little CBD is being added to hempseed oil, a completely different and very safe product that has been sold in health food stores for years. The mixture is being sold as CBD cream, oil or CBD pills.
The product relieves pain because hempseed oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids. It is not primarily because of CBD. The goal of the deception is to make marijuana, a toxic drug, more acceptable to Americans.
Hempseed oil. Hempseed oil has been on the market for years, and is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. For this reason, it is highly anti-inflammatory.
Rampant deficiencies. We find that most people are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids. This is due to diets containing vegetable oils high in omega-6 fatty acids, and due to feeding corn to our livestock.
Without extra omega-3 fatty acids, millions suffer from inflammation. In fact, this has contributed greatly to the opioid crisis in America and elsewhere.
Inflammation takes the form of physical pain, mental anxiety and irritability, and even seizures and other inflammatory brain conditions.
Taking hemp oil - or fish oil or flaxseed oil - brings relief. The CBD promoters take advantage of this fact to make people think that it is the CBD in their product that relieves pain. It is not. It is the hempseed oil.
Unsafe. Promoters of this drug claim it is safe because it does not cause a high. It is different than THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound that is supposed to cause the marijuana high. Marijuana plants can be bred to produce more CBD and less THC.
While CBD has medicinal properties, as do all drugs, we suggest staying far away from it, just as we suggest avoiding all toxic drugs. In our limited experience with it, it is highly toxic.
We believe CBD contains some cadmium, one of the most poisonous of the toxic metals. This is one reason it has “medicinal” properties. Doctors have used toxic metals as drugs for several hundred years. Among the toxic metals used as drugs, even today, are compounds of arsenic, mercury, boron, aluminum and others.
Instead of ingesting poisons, if you are having symptoms of illness, begin a development program. This program will often heal the problem at a deep level.
