WHAT ARE THE GENERAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF CBD? Due to media attention and word of mouth, people are increasingly aware of the powerful therapeutic effects of CBD oil. But CBD provides general health benefits as well. Thomas Delauer discusses why everyone should be using CBD to live a healthier life and improving their sense of well-being.


For general health, using CBD oil can:
1) reduce inflammation
2) boost the immune system
3) reduce anxiety
4) improve mood

With CBD becoming more prevalent, we're hearing all kinds of ailments that CBD can treat, but no one's talking just about general health. No one's talking about how CBD can play a big role in just living a healthier, longer life and just overall having that better well-being. Well, first of all, before we can talk about general health, we have to have a clear understanding of what's going on with CBD within our body, but also what CBD is not. You see, CBD oil is a natural stimulator of the body's natural endocannabinoid system. What that means is that CBD, unlike THC, directly allows our body to produce more of the endocannabinoids that allow us to feel good and treat some issues, but also help modulate anxiety and maybe even help us sleep.

You see, when you look at THC, it's a whole different world. If you look at cannabis, cannabis is going to make it so that your endocannabinoid system is directly stimulated, meaning you have an exogenous ligand. What that means is you have an exogenous force coming in and stimulating something, just like a drug, whereas CBD promotes the natural production of something. You're not changing anything. You're not blocking anything. You're just allowing the body to produce more of what it likes. Now, the endocannabinoid system is a really cool thing. It really gives us bliss. It gives us relief. It gives us calmness. We have endocannabinoid receptors throughout the entirety of our body, not just in our brain.

When we look at how CBD oil works, CBD comes into the body and then it suppresses something known as fatty acid amide hydroxylase. This FAAH is required to normally metabolize THC or to metabolize cannabis down to something else. But when we look at CBD, because it suppresses this FAAH, it allows the body to essentially produce more of what is called anandamide. Now, there are a lot of different endocannabinoids, but the one we want to focus on the most is anandamide. You see, the reason we want to focus on it is because there's a lot of research surrounding anandamide. Anandamide is a really cool endocannabinoid. Basically it comes from a Sanskrit word anada, which literally means bliss.

Now, When we look at anandamide, it has some really powerful effects on what is known as tumor necrosis factor one alpha. Complicated name, but TNF1a is simply a very powerful inflammatory marker. When TNF1a is high within the body, inflammation is usually systemically high. Now, I don't want to go down a rabbit hole talking about inflammation too much, but when we look at pretty much every single chronic disease state within the body, inflammation is at its root. CBD directly has an ability to produce more anandamide within the body, which therefore suppresses tumor necrosis factor one alpha, something that's very, very important when it comes down to modulating inflammation.

  1. Cbd is all I use these days, oils, shampoo, hair mask and conditioner, toothpaste, face and hand cream, even have cbd tea bags which i have 2 cups per day one in the morning then in the evening which relaxes me before I go to bed, starting a diet and regular exercise is also a great advantage while using the products, makes me feel much better and more confident about myself.

  2. Very beneficial video, as usual. I just put a video in my channel discussing the benefits, how it is working for me. I had a list of health conditions that don't exist now in just one week smoking CBD. Everyone need to be taking it ????

  3. Hi. I take cbd now for 3 weeks and dont feel any benefits yet. I have fybromyalgie and inflammation on muscles and tendons. I took 5% and 8 % cbd. I ordered now higher % cbd. Hoop it will help soon so I can stop the medication. Can you give me some advice please. Thank you for you're upload.

  4. Unfortunately alot of people who need it cant work and so unable to afford it on a regular basis. Hopefully in the uk there will be a compassionate law introduced but wouldn't hold my breath.

  5. Why aren't any CBD videos posted on Thomas DeLauer's own site? I wonder if he's changed his mind about CBD oil — and these videos should be discarded; if perhaps he has new information about CBD oil and no longer supports it? Curious as to why it is only on this "Octagon Biolabs" site, and he doesn't mention it on his own…

  6. Could you please address how CBD interacts with prescription medications like blood pressure and thyroid. I take a thyroid medication at bedtime and also want to take a CBD for sleep. Can I?

  7. I can never find where any of these professionals on Facebook that tell us all about CBD oil ever tell us how much to take or when to take it or how to take it or where to find this information out.
