Doctors Speak Out About How CBD Oil Can Revolutionize Medicine Now That Hemp is Legal

“More people will be saved by CBD oil than surgery.” Heart surgeon claims CBD is the “most important” medicine ever discovered for treating cancer, diabetes, heart attack and more

“The discovery of the endocannabinoid system is the single most important medical, scientific discovery ever,” says retired cardiac surgeon Dr. David Allen in the video below.

“More people will be saved by manipulation of the endocannabinoid system than are currently saved by surgery.”

“When we discovered the endocannabinoid system about 30 years ago, we really didn’t understand its significance.”

The system is responsible for chemical communications in the body similar to those carried out by our endocrine (hormonal) system, Allen explains.

“We’re finding out that manipulation of this system can control diabetes, cancer and whether you can survive a heart attack or stroke,” Allen says.

The best way to manipulate the endocannabinoid system is — surprise — consumption of the cannabis plant.

Over 80 cannabinoids have been discovered in the cannabis plant. The second most prominent of those, after THC, is CBD or cannabidiol.

Unlike THC, which produces the “high” some lawmakers are so concerned about, CBD does not have a mind-altering, psychoactive component.

Now that hemp and CBD products are legal nationwide, some doctors say they could revolutionize Western medicine.

“There are over 1200 studies published in peer-reviewed journals on CBD,” explains naturopathic medical doctor Rob Streisfeld in the video. “It’s probably the most exciting and researched green substance around the world right now.”

Hemp was first cultivated as a textile fiber around 10,000 years ago in ancient Mesopotamia. While both hemp and marijuana originate from Cannabis sativa, centuries of selective breeding have produced dramatically different crops.

Marijuana typically contains a THC concentration of 5 to 30 percent. Hemp plants legally must contain less than 0.3 percent THC, and it is from hemp that most CBD oil is derived.

CBD oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, terpenes, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds.

Below are eight medicinal uses of CBD oil:


Many studies (here and here for example) demonstrate CBD oil’s potential as a promising cancer treatment, as it blocks cancer cells from spreading throughout the body, causes them to die quickly and reduces inflammation.

The National Cancer Institute states that CBD oil might be useful for suppressing cancer symptoms as well as the side effects from treatments.


Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system attacking cells in the pancreas, which leads to chronic inflammation. Research shows that CBD might ease this inflammation and better control the body’s response to the condition.

Chronic Pain

Another study found CBD oil “shows great promise” in the treatment of difficult to treat chronic pain, such as pain from nerve damage, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries. It’s also a very effective muscle relaxer.


Research shows calming effects of CBD oil for people with post-traumatic stress disorder, general anxiety, panic disorders, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

It can reduce symptoms of anxiety with fewer side effects than conventional medications because it naturally increases the brain’s levels of serotonin.


Thanks to its anti-seizure properties and low risk of side effects, CBD oil is considered a promising treatment option for epilepsy, especially in children. Scientists believe it works by modulating electrical and chemical activity to help quiet the excessive activity in the brain.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinon’s

Because of the way CBD oil impacts neural receptors, evidence shows that it can benefit those with neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and strokes. The oil seems especially helpful for preventing early-stage Alzheimer’s patients from losing their ability to recognize faces. Further evidence shows CBD oil may also be useful in treating mental health disorders, such as schizophrenia.


Because inflammation triggers acne, there’s evidence that the cannabinoids in CBD prevent your skin from breaking out. Research shows that CBD can slow down production in the sebaceous glands to stop the skin from overproducing oil.


Early evidence reveals that CBD oil might help people quit smoking. One study of cigarette smokers who wished to quit showed that the participants who used an inhaler with CBD compounds experienced less-severe cravings for nicotine and smoked fewer cigarettes overall than those in the placebo group. A similar study found that the oil might be effective against opioid abuse withdrawal symptoms.

    This article is very misleading. Legalizing Hemp will do nothing for CBD. CBD Oil from Cannabis is the best medicine. CBD Oil from Hemp — not so good.

      You are not quite right, CBD oil that we grow is from sativa plants that are genetically altered to have low THC (.03 %) Therefor it is classified as Industrial Hemp even though it is the same plant that normally would contain THC

      1. Henny Avatar

        I agree with coachwolf, CBD from hemp has less than 0.03 and all hemp is from sativa dominant ( look at the leaf) and it’s not as potent as CBD from cannabis. I have been a grower here in OR, grow high thc ones in indica and CBD from cannabis and from hemp

      Your high! It really makes NO DIFFERENCE except for the HIGH you get with Marijuana. Hemp is LEGAL and therefore the CBD made from it is legal. Maryjane is not therefore CBD made from it is NOT.

        Gosh you don’t know much about agriculture. Growers can modify many plants to change the chemical makeup. It is the chemical makeup of a plant that gives it it’s name, properties and effects in human injestion .

      As others have pointed out they are both from the Cannabis plant just modified for THC content. Yes, the THC Cannaboid has additional benefits but both contain 100’s of other cannaboids that help with health issues. The only difference with hemp derived is that to be legal to consume the THC has to be .03% or less.

      My family uses Hemp derived legal CBD and we have numerous positive results. I have Fibromyalgia, Chronic pain and neuropathy and my quality of life has improved tremendously.

      Both are awesome for so many issues.

    I take 50mg of CBD a day it really helps with my mood and anxiety. I have been taking for 3 months and keep seeing different benefits.I tried THC once because I was on vacation and get drug tested at work. I was blown away by then pain relief and I can’t tell you the last time I felt rested after sleeping. I have been told a lie about pot and how dangerous it is. It has very little side effects and can’t kill you. I stoped taking 5 meds because of CBD with my Dr.s ok. I can see why the Government keeps it a schedule 1 drug. Big pharma will lose Billions.

      1. Larry Murley Avatar

        I recently joined a company, that seems to meet all the criteria for a legit company, and have started selling CBD myself, I was quite skeptical myself about it, but it has won me over for pain relief and anxiety. I take the 500mgper ml dosage about a half a dropper per day. The company has 3rd party testing, an important point. thanks, Larry Murley,

      I don’t disagree however they need to quit marketing this as “ a cure for cancer” it clearly stated it would help with the treatment side effects and inflammation. So why not state it that way. I don’t disagree there are many great uses but don’t mislead people to get their approval. I’m all for less pharma and more alternative medicine but I also want people to receive the correct and best treatments to cure them. One drug will never cure all cancer that’s a blanket statement that can’t be made because 1) too much money will be lost by pharma 2) people are dx at different stages 3) people deny they are ill until it’s too late 4) every ca is treated differently. Do I think CBD is useful? Heck yes! But again those promoting it need to change their marketing from a headline “ cure all” to what it is.

    COACHWOLF….You have no idea what you are talking about..They are both from the cannabis sativa plant, the only difference is Hemp is the male plant, and doesn’t get you high…You need to educate yourself before commenting on something you haven’t got a clue about….

    1. TuscanGlen Avatar

      Hemp has male and female plants. Not just males. I have 17 acres growing right here on my property and both are present. CBD is made from primarily the female hemp plant. The male plants produce seeds. The female plants produce buds(eventually flowers if let go), and the buds are what you want to make CBD from.

      1. Amy Avatar

        CBD rich hemp fields ideally do not contain any males. Males produce pollen which pollenate the female flowers via the “white hairs” (pistils). Pollination causes more energy to go into producing the seed than the flower and resins, so you end up with less CBD (and other cannabinoids) per acre. The best way to farm high-CBD hemp is with feminized seed. Males in the field equals less females as well, further reducing potential yield.

    My Chiropractor had recommeneded CBD ointment for a dermatitis I had on my tummy. After using it for 3 months I ended up with a positive for marijuana on my urine screen at my family Dr office. At least I know it was the real deal. He accepted the result when I brought in my ointment. I can’t say the rash cleared up, I ended up using Triamincinolone (a steroid) that was much quicker and effective. I do recall the CBD ointment made me feel alot better, and mentally clearer.

    There is one CBD product that has worked better for me than any others I have tried. I live in Colorado the cannabis capital of the world and have personally tried countless CBD products and nothing seemed to work for me! Then I learned more about absorption and found that most CBD has a very poor absorption rate of ~6-10% … I tried a product developed but Dr Christopher Shade which has 97% absorption and I could feel the calming effects Immediately! It was so profound and changed my life and helped me heal after a traumatic brain injury unlike no others! If you’re open to connecting or learning more please email me or visit

    Marijuana carries on to be the most remarkably abused
    drug in The united states. The arguments for and in opposition to the legalization of cannabis carry on to escalate.
    This piece is not intended to founded the stage for a
    legalization dialogue about cannabis. As an different, I
    want warning practitioners whose clients under their treatment consider a
    look at superior for cannabis. Marijuana use is even so forbidden by Federal regulation and men and women who self-medicate or abuse marijuana ought to definitely not be authorised managed substances.

    Regretably, many doctors are commonly confronted with the problem of irrespective of no matter whether or not
    to prescribe managed substances to men and women who drug
    test optimistic for hashish. This is notably
    the circumstance in states that have modified point out legislation to legalize cannabis.
    These adjustments in position out regulation do not alter the Federal guidelines that medical gurus
    ought to abide by. As a former occupation DEA agent, I
    remind medical doctors that marijuana is even now an illegal Agenda I managed compound with no
    acknowledged healthcare use in the U.S. The uncomplicated reality
    carries on to be that all point out guidelines
    have Federal oversight, as pointed out in the Supremacy Clause of the Structure.
    “The Supremacy Clause is a clause within Compose-up VI of the U.S. Constitution which dictates that federal legislation is the supreme regulation of the land. Beneath the doctrine of preemption, which is primarily based mainly on the Supremacy Clause, federal regulation preempts issue regulation, even when the regulations conflict.”(one)

    When a health practitioner gets mindful that a shopper is generating
    use of cannabis, alternate solutions of therapy
    need to be carried out other than prescribing controlled
    substances. Doctors should really also think about steps to refer
    the customer for therapy and cessation if any illegal drug use is uncovered, including marijuana.
    Physicians must also hold in thoughts that the cannabis created now is considerably
    considerably a lot more potent than the past
    and employing bigger efficiency marijuana in conjunction with controlled substances is not protected
    and sound for people.

    Is there this form of a make a difference as Food and drug
    administration permitted experienced medical cannabis? There
    are two Foodstuff and drug administration permitted
    medicines in the U.S. that has a artificial analogue of
    THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the principal chemical (cannabinoid)
    reliable for marijuana’s psychoactive effects.
    A artificial edition of THC is contained in the Food and drug administration accredited medicines Marinol (Approach III) and Cesamet (Agenda II) which
    are recommended to offer with nausea for most cancers men and women likely via chemotherapy.
    Marinol is also encouraged to inspire the urge for meals of most cancers
    and anorexia people (two). The Fda is at existing overseeing trials
    currently being completed on Epidiolex (three), a drug manufactured by GW Prescription prescription drugs and designed
    to decrease convulsive seizures in young children. The drug features cannabinoids from
    marijuana, referred to as cannabidiol or CBD, which does not have the psychoactive
    houses of vintage marijuana and does not make a large. If this drug gets Food
    and drug administration acceptance, it would make heritage remaining the 1st licensed
    drug that is made up of CBD in the U.S.

    On best of that, DEA has issued a specific registration to a investigation laboratory at the College of Mississippi
    to cultivate a assortment of strains of hashish
    for health care trials (four). This analyze will preserve on,
    but as of this creating, ingesting or cigarette smoking botanical
    cannabis or the cannabis plant on your own is
    not federally authorised as an acknowledged healthcare
    therapy in the U.S. Sufferers who smoke or ingest cannabis have to have to have to be conscious that they
    are breaking Federal regulation and could be prosecuted beneath Federal statutes.
    Also, medical doctors have to be screening for cannabis use and
    if detected, they should really genuinely not prescribe managed
    substances, no make any difference of their prognosis and
    the patient’s indications and indications, as
    for each newest Federal statutes.
