The impetus behind creating NuLife CBD came from observing a family member’s battle with terminal esophageal cancer in 2015 and how powerful and rapid a remedy CBD was during his final days. A mixture of CBD and THC supported him greatly in minimizing his pain and nausea and increasing his appetite. Using a variety of CBD products made his ultimate transition infinitely easier and less painful. Having an increased appetite and decreased nausea allowed him to maintain critical nutrition levels and keep weight on, which is important when dealing with the fallout from chemotherapy and radiation. Throughout the process of his cancer treatment, the CBD allowed him pain free nights where he was able to sleep, and in the end, it increased the overall quality of his life before passing.
According to the National Cancer Institute, “Cannabidiol (CBD)… may relieve pain and lower inflammation without causing the ‘high’ of delta-9-THC. Cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.” CBD has also been seen as a growth inhibitor in tumors and may impact cellular dysplasia.”
A Miracle Pain Remedy
Do a bit of internet research and you will discover a plethora of reviews and testimonials from people who have traded in their pharmaceutical-grade pain and anti-inflammatory medications for the all-natural benefits of CBD. CBD products are effective in treating both acute and chronic pain and can come in the form of CBD oil, CBD ointment and cannabis pain cream and gel for topical use, vaping CBD oil to be inhaled and CBD gummies, tinctures, capsules and powders to be ingested. 34-year-old Jen Barker from New Mexico had tried everything to minimize the pain she experienced each month during her menstrual cycle, often doubled over with abdominal cramping. She experienced immediate relief from her symptoms upon trying CBD capsules and after 3 months of daily usage her cycle became more manageable than ever before.
Treatment for Epilepsy and Seizures
13-year-old Emma Crozier of Arizona uses CBD to manage the epileptic seizures that have plagued her life since the age of 2. The use of high-grade Medical CBD has reduced the number of her grand mal seizures from multiple a day to one one or two per week. According to a Consumer Reports article, FDA-approved seizure medications “fail about one-third of all sufferers, either because the drugs don’t stop the seizures or because the side effects are too severe.” Epileptic seizures are caused by irregularly misfiring electrical charges within the brain, which can result in convulsions and altered or impaired states of consciousness. The specific cause of epilepsy remains unknown, but can sometimes be the result of traumatic brain or head injuries, hormonal issues or the introduction of a virus.
Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis or MS is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system, optic nerves and brain and can be incredibly painful when patients suffer from frequent muscle spasms. CBD has been shown to reduce spasm levels and greatly lower the pain of MS side effects.
Neuroprotection Against Neurological Disorders
Extensive research is currently being conducted around the positive benefits of using CBD to treat a variety of neurological disorders that cause the degeneration of the brain and nerves over time. Patients with disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injuries and the negative effects of an ischemic attack such as a stroke have seen significant success in implementing CBD as part of their treatment plan based on its ability to reduce the inflammation that can make neurodegenerative symptoms worse.
Treatment of Depression and Other Mental Health Applications
Unlike THC, who’s psychotropic effects can impact anxiety and paranoia levels, CBD has shown great promise in improved cognitive function and enhanced relief for patients suffering from a wide variety of mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, addiction, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, OCD and PTSD.
