The Inside Story of Cannabidiol – What are the Benefits of CBD?

this is not marketing prepare for learning the inside story of cannabidiol a couple of years ago a remarkable thing happened when CBD became legal in all 50 of the US states if you remove CBD from the THC coming from the cannabis plant or the hemp plant CBD is now legal to use as a nutritional supplement since that time of course the market has exploded with interest and this conversation today is about the physiological effects of CBD on the human body truly CBD is not just another nutritional supplement this short conversation is going to accurately describe the intense scientific research that’s going on around the world but in simple language so that everyone in the stands of why CBD is so important for human physiology in order to comprehend the significance of CBD to our health we first have to ask the simple question what exactly is our health is it just the absence of disease if you don’t have symptoms you must be healthy well it’s actually far more important question and a deeper question than just that how does human physiology actually work how is it designed in general every aspect of human physiology is based on the balance between polar opposites between the yin and the yang this creates homeostasis when we look at specific parts of our physiology like the immune system the yin and the yang the opposites would be anti inflammation and inflammation the negative and the positive when those two things are imbalanced your immune system is functioning properly if we’re talking about our nervous system then we’re talking about the forces of excitation and the forces of inhibition or relaxation when we’re talking about our endocrine system or our hormone system we have the forces of breaking down tissue or the catabolic hormones and we have the anabolic hormones we build up tissue when those two forces are in balance we have homeostasis of our endocrine our hormone system if we’re talking about oxidation we have forces of antioxidant and forces of oxidation most people think that you have to just take buckets full of antioxidants all the time as if oxidation is bad not true if you didn’t have oxidation and the forces of oxidation in your bodies you couldn’t survive even one minute those two things have to be in balance they have to be in homeostasis all of our physiological systems have to be in this constant state of homeostasis a dynamic balance the stronger your physiologies ability to stay in homeostasis is there were more robust your capacity to be in homeostasis is the healthier you are next question what exactly is dynamic balance this is kind of difficult to understand and the best way is a model a model of a mobile so here we go we’re looking at a mobile you’ve probably played with this when you were a kid perhaps you even have some of these in your home right now we have all of these horizontal elements with little strings hanging down from them and we have these stars hanging at the bottom in this particular model the stars represent signaling molecules if this is a model of your neurology the stars that are hanging would be the neurotransmitters if this was a mobile of your endocrine system your hormone system then the hanging stars would be hormones and if this was your immune system the hanging stars would be cytokines or lymphokines these are the signaling molecules that make your immune system work now what makes us a dynamic balance is as you know if you change anything in this mobile it affects everything in this mobile let’s say for example that the star down here at the bottom that’s now big and swollen and red gets weighted down as if you took a paper clip or some weight and attached it to the mobile hanging in your home that star is going to pull down and everything in the mobile is going to you can’t change any one element without affecting every element and a mobile what’s interesting however is that initially the mobile is going to go through these oscillations where things are bouncing up and down and shifting up and down until the oscillations slowly quiet and the mobile finds a new point of homeostasis a new point of balance now everything is shifted in the mobile the stars are all in different locations now and many of the sticks are no longer horizontal they’re kind of twisted at one angle or another but our physiologies are so smart that they will find a new point of balance during the shifting and the oscillation is when you feel sick when you have symptoms but our body our physiology will compensate and the new balance will be found and you can continue to function now let me explain how modern medicine with pharmaceutical drugs interacts with this system let’s say you have another one of these stars another one of these elements that goes a little bit haywire this star over here on the left so you’re feeling lousy and you go to the doctor and the doctor does some kind of test and decides okay we need to give you a drug and so you take a drug some kind of pharmaceutical drug to deal with this one element over here on the left that’s now gone somewhat haywire and the drug is designed to clamp down on those symptoms notice that the drug is designed to deal with exactly that one star not the entire system with a mobile but that one star and the symptoms that it’s creating however we know that pharmaceutical drugs have many many unintended side effects and so because of the drug you’re taking now another star goes haywire and you have more symptoms and now you have to take a drug to counteract the symptoms on their first drug and so you clamp down on that star as well and then a third one goes haywire and so you clamp down on that one as well and let’s say now you seem to be stable you seem to be functioning and everything is copasetic well is it really everything seems to be stable here because the mobile isn’t shifting anymore but let’s take a closer look at your system this is what’s actually happening you now have all sorts of artificial weights attached to your physiology to your mobile you can see that your physiology is under a lot of stress the weight of all these different drugs and these overexpressed stars are pulling down heavily on this mobile and you can see that some of those bars are now bent because they’re under so much tension one more little thing going wrong with your physiology perhaps it’s something as simple as a cold or a little virus or some kind of drug interaction that you didn’t anticipate and now something breaks this system is under so much tension in somewhat stress that the oscillations would be huge and you might find yourself in the ICU under life support so in a nutshell pharmaceutical drugs work at the level of the symptoms not the systems which causes enormous strain on your human physiology so I’ve showed you this in order to point out to highlight the differences between how pharmaceutical drugs work at the level of the stars and how CBD works CBD instead of working at the level of the stars works at the level of the system of balance at the Nexus of balance that would be in these crystalline green orbs where the where the string attaches to the stick that’s where the system knows if it’s in balance or out of balance it can’t tell what’s happening at the level of the star but it knows what’s happening right there in that green crystal and orb where balance is maintained and established so in the model that we are using the mobile to highlight how our physiology works that’s where CBD works now in our actual physiology where does CBD work let’s take a closer look here we go we’re gonna travel into our physiology right into our central nervous system and we’re going to see at the level of in cells that the cell surface is covered with these green receptors these are receptors for CBD and when the CBD binds to that receptor it sends a message into the cell which travels all the way down into the nucleus of the cell where the intelligence of our entire physiology is contained within our chromosomes so here a chromosome is going to unwind and you’re going to see the actual DNA that contains the codes for everything that our body does this is like the software that runs our physiology genes are the codes for every protein that our bodies make including all the signaling molecules that run our physiology such as our neurotransmitters that run our nervous system our hormones that run our endocrine system and our cytokines that run our immune system so imagine for instance that these are cells in your pancreas making insulin this is happening in a million cells let’s say all producing huge amounts of insulin to keep your blood Sugar’s in proper balance again your insulin is a hormone which is a protein so we see that throughout our physiology we have receptors specifically designed to bind with CBD and CBD has its effect on the nucleus of our cells where proteins are being made so which proteins are being made from the influence of CBD CBD modulates the transcriptions of over 1,100 genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system and throughout our immune system restoring homeostasis to both our immune and to our central nervous systems so as you can see on the left side of the slide CBD up regulates the genes that create anti-inflammatory bio chemicals for our immune system and up regulates the GABA system in our central nervous system which brings calmness to our central nervous and on the right side of the slide we can see that CBD down regulates the genes that create the inflammatory bio chemicals in our immune system and also down regulates the glutamate system in our central nervous system which causes over excitation so now let’s go back to the model of our physiology and see how CBD affects it we go back to our one star that’s out of whack and now we introduce CBD and voila we see a cascade going through all the points of balance in our system and the mobile comes back to homeostasis to its original stable beautiful balance now our physiological systems are far more complex in a simple mobile that I’ve been showing you here with only 12 stars for instance our immune system has 350 different signaling molecules on it so it’s an enormous mobile which also explains why there’s so many unintended drug interactions because if you affect any one of those little stars it’s going to shift all 350 of those other stars and who could possibly figure that out so in fact here’s what our immune system actually looks like and of course when you introduce CBD to our amazingly complex physiology in the immune system the Cascade of homeostasis trickles down through all 350 of those stars it’s a beautiful thing bottom line CBD causes a cascade of homeostasis through our entire central nervous system in our entire immune system so why is this happening because as I mentioned before we have receptors in our physiology for CBD this is called the endocannabinoid system back in medical school we didn’t even know about the endocannabinoid system it was only discovered in the 1990s by dr. raphaela shulam from the Hebrew University in Israel where an amazing amount of incredible biomedical nology and innovations are coming from that tiny little country so the endocannabinoid system is a network of cells throughout our body that have receptors for CBD in fact there are more receptors for CBD in our body than any other kind of receptor so the endocannabinoid system is truly the largest network of its kind throughout our entire physiology among other things dr. McCollum also discovered that we make our own cannabinoids in our body this is an and amide and two AG an and amide is something that we create when we’re meditating hence it’s called the Bliss molecule and two AG as well as an and amide are released in mother’s milk when a child is breastfeeding so no wonder that child is so calm and happy when they’re breastfeeding those two compounds are also associated with a runner’s high you know that point when you’re running and suddenly you’re in bliss you kind of break through the wall and now you just feel wonderful those two are natural cannabinoids that our own bodies make and bind to our CBD receptors so here we have our CBD receptors in our central nervous system and in our cardiovascular system we’re immune cells are constantly circulating of course in our bone marrow where the cells are actually manufactured and of course in our immune organs our major moving organs are the intestines the spleen and the bladder and last but not least the lymph system so our bodies are filled with CBD receptors so what now you know the story why is this important why is this matter why is this important to you or me or if you’re interested in the business of distributing CPD why is this important to humanity if you live in urban America or urban anywhere in the world you are inflamed your central nervous system is inflamed as well as your immune system is inflamed and nobody is exempt because our physiological systems are under assault assault from environmental toxins such as herbicide insecticides and heavy metals chronic biological infection such as bacteria viruses fungus and molds and last but not least are inflammatory diets which are very poor usually way too much sugar which causes leaky gut and inflamed gut that allows certain bacterial infections to occur that gets into our blood into our systems so what kind of symptoms what kind of stress do all these things cause to us if your immune system is inflamed you might be suffering from autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis inflamed bowel disease lupus and thyroid or fibromyalgia or even MS and your skin psoriasis and eczema and all sorts of other chronic infections do you realize many of these things didn’t even exist a hundred 150 years ago incidents of these kind of diseases is growing throughout the last century because of the environmental load of toxins that we are now absorbing into our systems now let’s take a look at your central nervous system if it is inflamed what kind of things might you be suffering from brain fog migraines epilepsy anxiety and PTSD ad D ADHD autism and insomnia again a hundred or 150 years ago these kind of symptoms these kind of diseases were really rare and over the last hundred and fifty years because of the insult the ongoing insult to our systems these kind of things are more more prevalent with every single year so if you are suffering from any of these conditions any of these symptoms CBD might provide you with tremendous healing tremendous relief right through your own natural endocannabinoid system that brings homeostasis both to your immune system and to your central nervous system so in conclusion what have we learned from this conversation that health is achieved through physiological homeostasis right through our natural endocannabinoid systems and therefore CBD is an indispensable catalyst for optimal health you are welcome to submit your questions and testimonials in the comment section below give us a couple days and we will answer them you


  1. Thanks the model is helpful. I have a few questions. In your mobile model, the stars are signaling molecules (neurotransmitters; hormones; cytokines). What is the physiological equivalent of the crossbars and string (the endocannabinoid system?). When the crossbar breaks, is that a disease and/or a fatal loss of function for those signaling molecules? Can the ECS repair this (cause a cell to create a gene that repairs the crossbars and string)? The model and the cascade of homeostasis seems to imply that the relationship between signaling molecules and the nexus of balance points is hierarchical with the higher bodies affected first? When CBD is ingested what determines which receptors in which systems and organs are keyed first?

  2. Thank you Dr. Milgrom for your precise and clear explanation! Excellent explanation of the beneficial properties and effects of CBD oil. IT WORKS to regulate the body and bring it back to homeostasis, or balance and I as a certified nutritionist appreciate that it is literally, "food for thought" as it helps clear the mind and body of toxins that create brain fog and other conditions from which so many people suffer in today's world. For one simple plant extract to be able to do this, it makes me think that, yes, we need to be eating more plants (we call 'em vegetables) foods, and God did not make mistakes when we were created with the receptor system that helps balance most all of the others in our precious bodies. Here's to healing naturally.

  3. Thank you for such a comprehensive explanation of what CBD can do. I have started researching CBD for my chronic cough. My doctor has told me to 'learn to live with it' as investigation have not found anything! I have already had it for 20 years. My question is: has there been any specific research done regarding treating chronic cough with CBD. I think my condition may be due to Laryngeal Sensory Neuropathy but when I mentioned this to a consultant he said there was no such thing other than some doctor trying to make a name for himself. LSN is treated by anti epileptic drugs or drugs for depression and CBD is the only 'herbal' treatment I can find that seems to be used for this purpose.
    I would appreciate any help you can give me.

  4. I started using it for my eczema both internally and topically for a week now and I’ve noticed an instant shift in my inflammation. I can feel my body change drastically from within. I can only tell because I meditate daily and wanted to see if there was a difference in my body. To be honest, I can feel the more deeper awareness in my body. I can’t explain it but sense it as there is more of a calmness and relaxation in my body and I can feel the fascia in my body loosen up. I do yoga daily too and it’s enhanced my flexibility. This really is a miracle medicinal herb that has to be readily available as it can cure so many aliments. I’m a believer!!! 🙌🙌🙌🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️🤩🤩🤩😍😍😍🌿🌿🌿

  5. I am not a doctor but I think CBD works best if you start taking it regularly even if you have no apparent diseases or whatever. It's not magic, but it has many benefits, especially in the long term. It is like moderate physical activity or nurturing relationships. Incorporate it into your lifestyle and you will most likely experience a longer healthy life span. Look for CO2 extracted CBD oil or gummy bears and the suppliers should be able to provide third party lab test results proving their origins and contents on customer demand. Take care folks!

  6. Hello, PLEASE HELP ME, I've been diagnosed with upper respiratory disease, and have had asthma since a baby, have always had cow milk allergies, been vegetarian off and on throughout life, now I am. I have recently discovered I'm allergic to all dairy and wheat and that ASTHMA IS THE RESULT OF ALLERGIES. It makes perfect since to me since I suffer with attacks after I ingest these things. I've been on blackseed oil which def helps, but PLEASE will you tell me which cbd oil and how much to take will best benefit my condition. Thank you for this fantastic presentation!

  7. Informative vid thanks, my q.: According to this your body should produce it's own CBD like it does many chemical/elemants for ex. Insulin… So how would one know if they naturally have enough or they should orally take cbd?, And what would cause a decrease in CBD production? Shouldn't that be what one should focus on? And if one produces enough CBD naturaly is taking more CBD an issue in other words how much CBD is to much?

  8. CBD is the future of medicine and I am so thankful for it. Cannibidol helped me overcome anxiety and depression and I no longer have to depend on thc. If you are tired of getting high like I was and need something to boost you, or motivate you, CBD is the answer. God Bless!

  9. I can buy CBD at my local vape shop in MD. I haven’t done it yet but I feel it’s a great thing to take as a preventative medicine

  10. All I can say is I’ve been on Vicodin for 22 years after 2 weeks I wake up pain free and remain pain free??? Crossing my fingers!!

  11. Does anyone know about the dosage for epilepsy? How much to start with and for how long? Or the brand? (Myoclonic seizure)

  12. hello , how long dose it take for cbd to come into effect ? long term do u have to keep taking cbd ? I'm using cbd liquid throw vaping. hope to hear back from you 🙂

  13. I have phn caused by shingles that I had 5 years ago. It covers an area from my groin to my navel and goes around my bodytothe tip of my spine down to my "butt". I have sometime severe pain where it takes me right down, and always bad pain where I can seldom get dressed because I can't stand anything touching that area. Even a slight breeze hurts. I've been to Nurosurgeons, homeopathic specialists. This has been five years. I've tried everything and Opiods are the only thing that touches the pain & I won't take them because I know what they do to my body and I would require more and more.

  14. You are such a beautiful man to explain CBD Oil in a way that makes Total sense, based on Science and Gaia..Much Love!!!!


  16. you need the THC for it to be 100% why you think they allow the CBD and not the THC. its having a car with out an engine.

  17. It seems to me all these new diseases and infections happened AFTER vaccinations became predominant. Prove me wrong…

  18. Important information from this video:

    CBD (cannabidiol)
    — activates endocannabinoid system
    – increases GABA
    – acts as an anti-inflammatory agent
    – down regulates glutamate (prevents over excitation)

    There are two cannibinoids your body produces naturally.
    – 2AG => released in breast milk + and released when running
    – Anandamide => stimulated by meditation + released in breast milk + and released when running

  19. I started using this for fibromyalgia. It's excellent!! I highly recommend it. I bought mine from Amazon under Hemp cbd. I use the gummies at fifty mg per gummie. It calms me down, makes me feel relaxed, NOT medicated.

  20. Hi Dr Asher

    Do you believe cbd oil helps with fertility and conception? Especially for an endometriosis sufferer?

  21. I don't trust anybody and smell bullshit from a mile but this is the truth. The universe is in perfect balance. There is matter and anti matter, light and dark, heat and absence of heat etc. There is a balance to everything just like us. Pharmaceutical drugs are not bad but they have side effects indeed and are generally super strong and harsh. You can always start by trying natural remedies and go from there. No help? Go to the doc at last.

  22. Cómo publican un vídeo en INGLÉS con título y descripción en español pero SIN SUBTÍTULOS???? EN SERIO??? 🤣🤣🤣

  23. QUESTION: Do you need to start with very low doses of CBD and slowly work up, like with THC? Can you take too much CBD? Thanks!!

  24. Hello I was diagnosed as a diabetic about five years ago. Since then they said I am type 1 type 2. It's like they don't even know. Can CBD help me? This is autoimmune and I have had autoimmune issues pretty much my whole life everything from Vitiligo eczema, dermatitis, optic atrophy a whole laundry list of diseases.

  25. I’m on pain pills for my back and been on them for years, will trying CBC with this medicine be harmful?

  26. The endocannabinoid system has been known worldwide for centuries. This was not discovered by the jews in Israel. Nice try.

  27. Started using a CBD transdermal (aka patch) in April and am sleeping 6-8 hours per night, and MUCH MORE calm! Happy to share info 😉

  28. I have recently been hospitalized due to a form of Artiritis Nodosa and will start CBD today, i have chronic inflammation and pain and will kerp you updated on how it goes, im hoping it helps me massively as im sick of taking zomorph and oramorph.

  29. I would love to see a video on Menapause. You explained this so we'll. Menapause is the loss of hormones, and has so many affects on our bodies.

  30. if you smoke the cbd weed without the thc9 you still get a good body buzz but a clear head with brain fog pretty nice feeling.good stuff

  31. Sounds like these beautiful plants are heavily tampered with i.e. synthetic isolates… would this plant be better in its natural fullness?
    May the mind's heart's and hands of the wicked cease to function.


  33. Folks I just discovered how to make cannabis eye drops. Wow after 10 years of trying. CbD RAISES eye pressure. Do not use for glaucoma! CbG lowes eye pressure as does thc delta 9 and delta 8 and delta 9 does not have to be heated and delta 9 eye drops I discovered lower iop significantly and cause no psychoactive effect at the small dose that significantly lowes eye pressure. Going to bring these to market. I've lost 35 percent of my vision waiting on this breakthrough. I wish I discovered 2 years ago.

  34. Great Information. Thank you for sharing. I do have a question about Breastfeeding mothers please. Is it safe for Mummas to be taking CBD while breastfeeding and what effect does this have on the Bub. Thanks again . Kidbn regards.

  35. So isn't this just another way of avoiding a healthy lifestyle? If we are inflamed, there's a reason – and we should heal our bodies. If we want a calm nervous system, we should work out and let the body produce it's own CBD. The body uses inflammation to isolate toxicity. What happens to those toxins if you take CBD and cause an artificial anti-inflammatory response? Where are those toxins ending up? What about the reasons the body was inflamed in the first place? Shouldn't we be treating the cause rather than the symptom? CBD mind as well be an artificial chemical drug if used in this way as it doesn't seem to be healing anything, just treating a symptom (inflammation). Asking out of genuine curiosity, not trying to give you a hard time.

  36. @ AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare , I have watched your videos many times because i want to learn more about, and I would like to use your Video with your permission for my research & review about CBD

  37. After just 4 days, my back pain is down to 2 from 10. Also, by type 2 diabetes blood sugar is falling to a point that I had to take a glucose tablet. I think I am going to reduce my meds for diabetes.

  38. What is the best dosage for certain conditions? For example I have IBD Crohns, wouldnt my dosage be different than that of an anxiety patient and what exactly is that dosage to keep a disease in remission?

  39. Is this can cure inflammation in kidney?
    I am suffering from Auto immune kidney disease and leaking protein in urine…!!

  40. amazing explanation of human health in a way we ordinary beings can understand. 5 stars.

  41. Will CBD help with the neuropathic pain resulting from a incomplete spinal cord injury? If so at what dose. Thank you.

  42. Oils, CBD pens , Cbd balms can be purchased @ any CBD shoppes, CBD MD has 0 % thc An sponsors some of the top athletes. I do jiujitsu An Work in construction. I’m done with ADvil. CBD is king to stop inflammation. I also use cherry tart an different teas. But the CBD pen is one of the most effective by far. Great video

  43. Thanks for the clearest presentation ever.
    Sometimes my body could wear those stars and jangle in accord with my loosening inflamed joints.
    Would you have a description to cover epilepsy attached to cerebral palsy in a 12 year old female? Are we at last in a position to prescribe with cellular size accuracy?
