Do you have chronic pain, trouble sleeping, or unwanted weight gain? Do you need a boost to your anxiety and depression meds? CBD Benefits might just be what you’re looking for. First and foremost, we always recommend you speak to your doctor before adding CBD to your health and wellness regimen; but it’s worth talking about. Why bring it up with your doctor? Here are five overlapping CBD benefits for your total health and wellness all in one substance.
CBD Benefits #1—It’s 100% Organic
Rob Van Dam’s RVDCBD Oil Tinctures are a broad-spectrum hemp extract and only contain two ingredients: CBD from a distillate and coconut oil. Because health and wellness have always been top priority for RVD, CBD by itself wasn’t good enough for Rob. Therefore, RVDCBD has all but one cannabinoid (THC) giving you the “full entourage effect.” In other words, RVDCBD has all the health benefits cannabis has to offer.
Again, RVDCBD topicals and tinctures contain everything except for the high (Zero THC). You only get one body, so go natural. RVDCBD tincture is the all-natural source for relief tested and approved by the biggest advocate for hemp, Rob Van Dam. If you are looking for that THC, then check out RVD’s Flowers, like Space Candy Strain.
How CBD Works
There are 10 major systems in the human body. CBD affects a lesser system contained within the nervous system, the endocannabinoid system. Because the nervous system is the message board from the command center (cognitive and not), CBD’s effects trickle throughout the body.
The endocannabinoid system regulates many activities in our body
CBD Benefits # 2—Reduces Pain & Inflammation
Clinical studies have confirmed…CBD regulates the response to excessive inflammation.
According to healthline.com, “[The] combination of CBD and THC is effective in treating pain related to multiple sclerosis (MS) and arthritis…. Additionally, research suggests … CBD may relieve symptoms of rheumatic diseases such as fibromyalgia.”
If you’ve got pain? Get CBD! Chronic pain tips the scales, and not in your favor. RVD’s career in the ring piled on the pain, but he found a way to keep going and balance himself–HEMP!
“You’re only at your best when your mind, body and spirit are in balance. “~Rob Van Dam
CBD Benefits # 3—May Significantly Improve Sleep
One way CBD helps improve sleep is by interfering with the release of cortisol. Did you know cortisol is the primary stress hormone in the human body? Research reported in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, (NIH), “Patients with insomnia without depression do present high levels of cortisol, mainly in the evening and at sleep onset.”
Why is this a problem? The human body has a Cortisol Rhythm which guides your sleep. Low levels are crucial to fall asleep and stay asleep, and vice versa. Higher Cortisol transitions your body to being awake. People with chronic high cortisol levels struggle to fall asleep; their body is in a constant fight or flight cycle. Taking a dose of CBD before bed may help reduce cortisol levels and help you relax and fall asleep.
CBD Benefits # 4—Reduce Anxiety and Depression
The serotonin hormone, found in our brain, regulates our mood, feelings, and overall happiness, but it also affects our entire body. Serotonin is like the old school operator on a switchboard who directs the messages from our nervous system to the rest of our body. Lower serotonin causes havoc in your body, two issues being depression and anxiety.
How does CBD Help? CBD doesn’t boost serotonin levels, like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) which are a group of prescribed medications, but CBD does affect how the brain receptors respond to serotonin that’s already in your system. Animal research showed, “CBD… produced both antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects.” [link]
CBD Benefits # 5—for Weight Loss
Healthline.com, reported, “[CBD] may boost metabolism and reduce food intake [and] may promote ‘browning’ of fat cells.” In animal tests, CBD reduced the desire to eat. Research done in a test tube, showed, CBD converted white fat cells to brown. Why does that matter? White fat cells are where energy is stored for times of starvation. This is the muffin tops and bulgy excess we all want to lose. CBD boosted the conversion of white to brown.
What’s the difference between white fat and brown? Brown fat cells have more of the mitochondria that burn calories; brown fat burns the white. Your body’s goal is to convert the white fat to brown. RVDCBD’s CBD Tincture oil uses two carefully selected ingredients. Right from the get-go, there is less to process. Also, coconut oil is a monochaintriglyceride (MCT), and MCT’s are brown fats. So, CBD promotes the conversion of white cells to brown, and the other ingredient is brown, so it’s a boost of fat burning energy.
RVD’s Mission for Better Health and Wellness
After Rob Van Dam (RVD) set his mind on becoming a professional wrestler as a teen, his current mantra: “You’re only at your best when your mind, body and spirit are in balance,” started to formulate. Rob knew early on what you put into your body matters. After the 2018 Farm Bill passed, RVD made it his mission to create a product from hemp that could combat chronic ailments, pain, inflammation, stress, and anxiety, which he struggled with throughout his career. RVDCBD and RVDTHC products are the result.
