• If we walk into a nursing home, hospital, or other health facility, chances are pretty high that we will see at least a few people struggling with a neurodegenerative disorders. In America, it is one of the main causes of death. These disorders are often distinguished by a loss of neurons in specific regions of the nervous system. It is believed that this nerve cell loss is the primary reason for cognitive and motor function dysfunction for those with a neurodegenerative disorder. According to this study, inflammation is one of...

  • Over 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) each year, while approximately 10,000,000 people worldwide live with the effects of this disease. PD is caused by a loss of brain cells in the substantia nigra, the part of the brain that produces dopamine (a chemical messenger). So, it is no surprise that Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to help those with PD find some relief from the symptoms. This study showed that while there were no adverse effects, and no worsening of motor function, it did decrease the total...

  • That's Natural! is excited about the discoveries being made about cannabidiol (CBD) and the inherent endocannabinoid system that exists in each of our bodies.  We hope you will do research for yourself, here are some links to investigate for yourself, concerning CBD’s potential applications for Parkinson's disease. 1- Cannabidiol for the treatment of psychosis in Parkinson’s disease 2- Evaluation of the neuroprotective effect of cannabinoids in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease: Importance of antioxidant and cannabinoid receptor-independent properties 3- Cannabinoids provide neuroprotection against 6-hydroxydopamine toxicity in vivo and in vitro: Relevance to Parkinson’s...

  • The neurodevelopment disorder, autism, affects about one in every 68 children - a staggering statistic that is bringing greater awareness to natural, plant-based therapies that are readily accessible. Parents are often left with the choice of administering antipsychotic medications to their child that are not always effective and can have negative and damaging side-effects. In Israel, a pioneering study is under way to test the effects of cannabinoids on 120 autistic children and young adults.  From Start-Up Israel:  “The researchers at Shaare Zedek are mostly administering a cannabinoid called cannabidiol,...

  • A growing body of research coupled with thousands of individuals' testimonies from around the world are bringing to light the power of CBD for health and wellness. This article from Civilized, "5 Ways CBD Can Improve Health", summarizes several of the ways that this non-psychotropic (doesn't get you "high") cannabinoid from cannabis or hemp is saving peoples' quality of life: 1. Anti-Tumor Properties 2. Anti-Anxiety Properties 3. Anti-Seizure/Anti-Convulsion Properties  4. Antioxidant Properties 5. Neuroprotective Properties Researchers, scientists, and individuals from around the world are turning towards a natural plant that has been used for...

  • An increasing number of people are experiencing a range of neurodegenerative diseases - one of the saddest and most emotionally debilitating is Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). A non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid called CBD (Cannabidiol) has demonstrated in a multitude of research studies that it has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties.  Although many of these studies are done inside of a lab with test-tubes (in vitro), thousands of cases involving individuals can be documented - showing a wide range of potential applications for this cannabinoid (there are over 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis...

  • New research from China discusses more applications for the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol). The researchers from this study explained that there are a variety of therapeutic properties of CBD (demonstrated in vivo and in vitro), including: neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, anxiolytic, and antidepressant effects. Cannabis and hemp have been used for a variety of applications, including medicine, for thousands of years.  As growing global awareness brings more research, as well as individual case studies - it is imperative for companies and consumers to stand up for their food and medicine freedom....

  • Many stories in the news detailing the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol) are educating the market about its use for central nervous system degeneration. The benefits of cannabinoids have been known for decades, with the federal government even claiming a patent on them for "antioxidant properties that could be beneficial in the treatment of certain neurological diseases". It is no wonder that Americans and people from all over the world are becoming more educated on the Endocannabinoid System and its relationship to immunity.  Not only can non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD be beneficial...

  • The many benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol) may seem like a wide variety, maybe even too good to be true… until you learn more about our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Through our ECS, all humans (and mammals) are pre-wired to be responsive to cannabinoids.  As a matter of fact, we already make endocannabinoids inside of us (endogenously).  Many of the cells that have receptors for cannabinoids are in the nervous system and immune system. Many ailments, and much of our pain, comes from nerve degeneration and/or inflammation.  Whether it is...
